The bulb has surely proven itself to be inevitable in this modern world of lighting and technology advancement. All
homes, offices, stores, rooms and building undoubtly has a lightning of bulb in it domain. But some simple question Is posed to you to feed on before reading ahead, maybe to wet your appetite; 
Ÿ  Was the bulb a mysterious object from trace of time back? 

Ÿ  Did it really had an inventor ? 

Ÿ  If it had an inventor, then who really is that inventor? 

Ÿ  Was a man name Thomas Alva Edison the sole founder and owner of  the world bulb supplies?

Somebody might say I do not know to all the above ask, while some might admit of having ideas partaking to it. Well let trek through the questions in a simple summary.
Some research documentaries have spotted out names like Jean Foucault, Humphrey Davy, Hiram Maxim and Joseph Swan to be the real pioneers of bulb invention from their various sources. But another pioneer of today bulb named Heinrich Goebel dating back to 1854 developed the source ideas. But of important note, the invention of bulb is a cumulative work from various men with a common idea in innovation, but unfortunately, all fame and attribute to one person.

The man Humphrey Davy for over two (2) decades observed that heat through a medium produced as a result of  electric current flowing through a wire. But the light duration was so short, with no proper result. So the need for an alternative medium to make the bulb last long was on the go.
Then the smart idea of vacuum and carbon burner came to life through J.W. Starr in the year 1845.
Then rose Alessandro Volta with more means and smart idea of distributing the electricity with a copper wire connected at it two ends to zinc and copper respectively in a socked salt solution in the year 1800.
The year 1878 brought to light a hard working man named Joseph Swan. All the earlier never completed their work due to lack of adequate material to produce an efficient and long lasting bulb. During this era Joseph Swan used thick filament for lighting causing the carbon burnout to be so rapid. Though good had it own flaws.
Then the modern father of electricity Thomas Alva Edison, though without the founding ideas of bulb making and inventions, adopted ideas and efficient men to begin a work creating his fame. First he observed the flaws of other previous inventors and their invention technique, then he use thin carbon filament with better vacuum to produce his own lightning in the year 1879. After observing little, though poor success, he quickly went and announced his inventions, creating recognition in the public but some poor work behind the scene. As earlier mentioned, he never worked alone.
The year 1879, their was an improvement when one of his worker found another improved means of making the bulb last long with required filaments.
Many materials were tested to determine the lasting strength of the bulb, but fortunately his work mate found a Japanese bamboo which was tried and observed to last over 600 hours.
Then Joseph Swan saw his ideas and inventions stolen, and Thomas Alva Edison were really doing good with them quickly went to court and created a case on his adopted inventions. A resolution was upheld and Joseph Swan with Thomas Alva Edison had the choice of partnering together, this formed the Edison-Swan United Company. The smart ideas of modified vacuum in bulbs to cut off oxygen reduced burning process and also increase the lasting time of these bulbs. This partnership in production continued until Thomas Alva Edison with dominant influence had the company bought to his name Edison Electrical light company.
It official lightning was in the year 1882, New York city from the Edison Electrical light company in Perl street.
Then the struggle of fame was resolve to rest upon Thomas Alva Edison for concluding the hard work of the electrical bulb invention. And more still, his ideas were more practical in most cases of practical application.

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.
