[Wise Crypto Life] 20. Global Issues

Although the cryptocurrency market is still in its early stages there are many developments regarding its development both good and bad. In this week’s Wise Crypto Life, we will discuss various cryptocurrency news from all over the world.

Recently, the blockchain industry is paying special attention to NFT and De-Fi. It is only a matter of time before De-Fi changes the global economy. In this edition of Wise Crypto Life, we will explain what ‘De-Fi’ is and what role it plays in today’s society.

What is De-Fi?

De-Fi stands for “Decentralized Finance”; as the name suggests, it refers to the decentralization of financial transactions previously managed by banks.

Currently, we carry out deposits, loans, and investments through intermediaries such as banks and credit card companies.

This has been the “traditional” method of financial transactions until blockchain technology came…

In previous Wise Crypto Life editions, we discussed how blockchain technology is being used in various fields such as real estate, art, and sports.

Nonetheless, NFT auctions still sound like far-fetched futuristic concepts as blockchain-based games and activities are banned in Korea as of now. In this episode of Wise Crypto Life, we will explore the “Vaccine Passport” that many of us are already familiar with and use.

The new feature attracted mass attention and consequently, its sales volume raised by a whopping 120,00kg. Cheongsong…

[Wise Crypto Life] 16. Ethereum Hard Fork

Ethereum’s heavily anticipated ‘London’ Hard Fork was activated this month.
