How Blockchain Technology Is Changing the Way Fantasy Football Is Played

How Blockchain Technology Is Changing the Way Fantasy Football Is Played

Football season has arrived, and that means it’s time for what is quickly becoming America’s new favorite pastime, fantasy football. It’s the time of year when wives and girlfriends become weekend widows, as their significant others spend their Saturdays and Sundays watching a seemingly endless parade football games.

It means many us will be rooting for an obscure kicker, from a team we don’t care about, to kick one extra field goal, so we can go to our jobs and taunt our co-workers the following day.

Fantasy Football is great; there is no question about it. However, as with anything in life, there’s always room for improvement or at least a different take on how the game is played.

Photography on Blockchain

Photography on Blockchain

Fine Arts & the Art of Technology

In 2009, the effects of the global financial market spawned the fourth industrial revolution: the digital era. Bitcoin, and subsequently blockchain, were born. Bitcoin is the network, while bitcoin (with a lower-case “b”) is the cryptocurrency itself. In today’s world some professional photo agencies have started accepting bitcoin as payment for licenses. However, few realize blockchain technology could one day  literally change the entire face of photography.

Blockchain is platform designed to work with a decentralized network. Put simply, blockchain works like a digital, distributed ledger. When a transaction occurs on the blockchain, the information is added to a “block”, or data file. Once a transition is solidified, the block closes and a new one is created, which includes all the data from the previous block, thus creating a permanent chain of data. The blockchain is distributed across the network, as opposed to going through a single point. Their function is to make sure that each transaction is valid after solving complex algorithms, ultimately securing the block. Decentralization makes it nearly impossible to hack a block before it is finalized.

Blockchains’ Plausible Impacts on Education & Learning

Blockchains’ Plausible Impacts on Education & Learning

Do you think blockchains could disrupt the current education system? As an educator, I am constantly bubbling with ideas for using blockchains within my job and with my students. The use cases are quite wide, and the development is bound to come eventually as blockchain technology is more readily understood and more widely adopted.

The blockchain space has increasingly shown more applications for real-life use cases in a variety of fields. Every day, we see new changes to this growing genre of technological development, including many major companies coming out in support of blockchain technology and exploring their applicability. As information on blockchain technologies has reached more people, we have seen more ideas and development in and for blockchains, one of which lies in the expansive field of education.

Blockchain Could Be the End of Corrupt Charities

Blockchain Could Be the End of Corrupt Charities

Crackdown Finally Coming on Corrupt Charities

Several individuals want to make the world a better place by donating to their charity of choice, but many are left with the unsettling question of how their money is actually being spent. Corruption is prevalent amongst charities. Higher-ups at big charities often choose to line their own pockets, instead of appropriately using those funds for their intended purpose. Non-profits’ current operational structure lacks overall transparency. Ultimately, donors doubt the intentions of the supposed non-profit.

Blockchain technology could prove to be a game-changer, addressing the many questions that surround today’s non-profits. A new model is emerging for charities, which deals with the inflow and outflow of large amounts of money. On top of that, current accounting methods struggle to keep up with this exchange in capital. Last year, organizations based in the United States took in $2 trillion in revenue. Less than 20% of that, however, came in the form on charitable contributions. People have made fewer donations, as a result of this. Many choose not to donate at all. (Check out what a blockchain is here!)
