DDIntel - Blockchain's Impact on Entertainment and Inequality

DDIntel - Blockchain's Impact on Entertainment and Inequality
By DataDrivenInvestor • Issue #20 • View online
Blockchain will change how we see and view the world. Over the last year, the Metaverse has gradually become more mainstream with the emergence of Meta (otherwise known as Facebook) and other Metaverse technologies, such as HTC’s new NFT transaction platform. 
We are thus seeing the emergence of fully digital worlds that will change what we thought we knew about our world. In terms of gaming, there are new Metaverses on the horizon, such as Illuvium, which looks to shake up the industry by introducing an RPG-like experience realized online with embedded NFTs. The Blockchain makes these metaverse style worlds possible; its transparent, secure, and accountable nature ensures these games can run safely online. 
Similarly, the power of the Blockchain has the potential to end poverty and revolutionize social media due to its decentralized nature. The Blockchain can help lift the most deprived out of poverty by opening up previously inaccessible markets and allowing anyone to invest. Likewise, it can change how we view social media due to putting power back in the hands of its users. As a result, the blockchain will change more than just games but lives across the world.
This issue of DDintel will cover all of this and more. Other topics highlighted include inflation, social media marketing, SEO, and boosting productivity through sleep. We hope you enjoy this issue of DDIntel. If you liked our content, make sure to subscribe and follow our medium and DataDrivenInvestor.
