So what makes us the higher and dominant class of
animals?

 

That question has puzzle man for decades, and the
reason for mysterious death is still a disturbing problem to man in general.
Well, science has provided answer and reason for some certain death.
The Aging Guardians
The secret of aging has become a case of urgent
research by genetic Scientist, Molecular biologist, Gerontology and other field
of science. Unlike machine, man skin is different in texture and nature. From
child birth, the bones begins it development and becomes more mature and rigid.
With calcium and phosphorus as it main constituent. When fully mature, it
possess two division mainly compact and spongy bone, all protecting and also
giving frame and support to the body.
Also, millions of cells are being produced, fighting
foreign organism in the body. These are the erythrocytes, leucocytes and
thrombocytes. Each having major role in sustaining man and also enhancing life
continuation.
The Guardian Cells
Daily, about 10,000 cells are produced, and over
70,000 cells weekly, with about 310,000 monthly, and over 3, 650,000 annually.
By the time we are 49 years of age, we should have accumulated about 89,600,000
cells, with many dead and replaced multiple times.
The cells have being the guardian agent of man for
many years. During our teenage era, we were surly active, filled with might and
vigor, but as years go by, aging limits our activities and behavior.
Once we climb 50 years of age, we begin losing these
many blood cells and start developing different health issues, ranging from
waist pain to cardio diseases and lot others. The real sign of old age begins.
Historical Ages
The holy respected book mention many whom lived for so
long on the surface of the earth. The reasons for this extreme long life is
still perplexing, but below is a very few of them.
-Adam is recorded to live for 930 years.
-Noah son, Shem is recorded to live for 600 years.
-Arpachshad is recorded to live for 438 years.
-Abraham is recorded to live for 175 years.
-Reu is recorded to live for 2400 years.
And the most oldest man, Methuselah is recorded to
live for 970 years.
The reason for this extreme long aged lived is still
unknown, but lot of assumptions have being made. Some have concluded that
natural herb was the secret of such longer lives, but it obvious natures beauty
and good food played a major role.
But the good news is that we are alive, so health
measures must be observed and the giver of life must be honored and respected.

Can Bitcoin Become the Next Global Reserve Currency?

Published

on

One of the most interesting trends surfacing in the crypto industry today is the increasing likelihood of Bitcoin emerging as the next global reserve currency – something that Bitcoin fundamentalists have been preaching for the last decade. 

With the combination of transparency and decentralized trust brought on by the blockchain, individuals and companies across the world have had the opportunity to participate in a free financial system since the emergence of Bitcoin some twelve years ago. 

Since the dawn of Blockchain, trust in this trustless system has been slowly rising with a diverse range of individuals, institutional investors, and even world governments investing in the technology and the various tokens in circulation today. One result of this has been the free flow of liquidity across borders in a remarkably revolutionary way – satisfying the ever-growing need for a more efficient global financial system. 

Mr. Yoon Kim is an accomplished and dynamic crypto analyst and strategist. He successfully built the TMT sector of Tremblant Capital and helped the company increase its AUM from $200 million to $5 billion in five-years’ time. He then launched Vestry Capital, a global TMT equity fund as the head of which he served as an advisor and consultant to various hedge funds and blockchain projects.

With his 20 years of experience in investing and in the blockchain industry, Mr. Kim acutely understands these shifts in the global financial system. 

For that reason, one of the key topics of conversation during The New Normal of Blockchain & Cryptocurrency panel which AIKON organized in late October was “where the future lies for the USD and its long-term position as the world’s reserve currency”. 

Mr. Kim indicated that the USD losing some of its standing in the global financial system and possibly its status as the reserve currency as an inevitable product of blockchain’s accessibility and decentralization. 

As Mr. Kim has pointed out, the current financial system has been in place since World War II – 75 years now! On average, global financial systems have typically lasted for ~70-80 years each. We are, then, coming to the end of an era and can stand with bated breath awaiting the next financial revolution. 

Moreover, history has shown that significant global events often precede the breakdown of institutionalized financial systems. For the Pax Britannica, it was World War I. For the global financial system, we have today, it may very well be the impact of COVID-19 on the world economy. 

Having been a staple of the global economy, and considering the turmoil, the US has endured throughout 2020, USD is in serious danger of being dislodged from the position of power it has enjoyed over the last three-quarters of the 21st century. 

Given the amount of influence that US politics now has on the rest of the world, and being mindful that the level of engagement that USD (as a global reserve currency) will have on the rest of the world after the presidential election will probably never reach the levels from 40 – 50 years ago when it was at its peak. With the decrease in the level of engagement of the US with the world economy after the Soviet Union dissolution, what we see now are the effects of the politics that took 20 years to materialize. 

In that sense, Mr. Kim pointed out that it is very probable that USD is about to be dethroned as the most important currency in the world. 

And while there are those who would like to see the Chinese RMB take its place, Mr. Kim considers this very unlikely to happen. For one, dethroning USD from the position of the global reserve currency would put a significant amount of pressure and responsibility on the Chinese financial system, responsibilities the country seems to be shunning presently. For instance, China has been accused of intentionally increasing demand which then leads to an increase in the prices of international commodities. 

Therefore, the question is what will supplant USD as the global reserve currency or at least become an alternate reserve currency running in parallel with USD?

Mr. Kim stated that Bitcoin seems to fit perfectly, especially taking into account the timing of its rise, as well as its ability to cross borders with very little effort. 

As political and economic relations between the US and China continue to collapse, it is becoming increasingly unlikely that either the USD or RMB will be viewed as a viable global reserve currency going forward. 

Bitcoin may prove to be the thing that both nations, as well as the rest of the world, decide they can live within the upcoming decades. 

While the Chinese government is actively restricting crypto trades, there is massive support within the government for cryptocurrencies and blockchain. This implies that they have a long-term strategy in place, where Bitcoin would be used to dislodge the USD as the global reserve currency. 

In the same way, we’re seeing the causality of the US global economics politics conducted in the past 20 years and its effect on the situation now, there is a good chance that 20 years from now we will have Bitcoin as the reserve currency of the world simply because it will not be controlled by any one nation and its financial system. 

Should Mr. Kim’s predictions come to be realized, individual and corporate players in this new market that is quickly gaining momentum should be preparing for the shift.
