📰 Recently, Ethereum has been out of the spotlight. However, it remains the second biggest cryptocurrency and the first one with a real use case. The network's decentralization depends on the number of addresses owning ETH. It needs to be talked about to be traded more.

In my opinion, Ethereum's importance cannot be overstated. Its smart contract capabilities and role in decentralized finance make it a cornerstone of the crypto world.

🔗 Ethereum is not just a digital asset; it's a platform for innovation and a catalyst for the broader adoption of blockchain technology. This is why ETH will always have a spot in my portfolio.

📈 Honestly, it's been fascinating to watch the launch of Ether ETFs. Some people were pretty skeptical at first, but they turned out to be a huge success, breaking past $1 billion in no time.

Now, everyone's eyes are on the ETH price, but it hasn’t moved much yet.

Sure, big investments from institutions are important, but if regular investors like you and me aren't jumping in, the market just feels kind of flat. To really see a strong upward trend, we need both the big players and everyday investors getting involved. Plus, what's happening in the larger crypto market always has an impact.


💼 Another thing I love about Web3 is the revolution in HR. This space moves fast, there’s no time to waste. You have to be incredibly efficient to stay afloat, and HR professionals are no exception.

I keep hearing wild stories from friends in other industries about the lengthy and confusing hiring processes—or even questions about their start sign.

Now, judging by the feedback of both talent and employers who published on LaborX, Web3 companies have streamlined their hiring processes to be faster and more transparent.

So yes, I might be biased, but in my experience, the Web3 HR professionals I've encountered are some of the finest. They get things done quickly and effectively, making the entire process not just bearable, but enjoyable.


🎙 Our team interviewed Nelson Lopez, Gate.io's Global Head of People. Twice. The interview turned out incredibly insightful because Nelson approaches every task with passion. He is one of those OG Web3 enthusiasts who entered the industry over a decade ago and still has a burning passion for it. These are the people who keep Web3 moving. I highly recommend reading the full interview on the LaborX blog.

Gate.io certainly employs best practices tailored to the Web3 workflow.For instance, they adopt a highly personalized approach to every employee, refusing the one-size-fits-all model. In return, they seek out exceptional team members—individuals who dream of contributing to the world’s financial education and independence.

💡 I guess, this is the best kind of deal: onboard people who love what they do and give them the freedom to do it.


🧠 Twitter seems to be obsessed with Elon Musk's statement regarding his son, whom he referred to as "dead" due to the woke mind virus and the use of puberty blockers. This got me thinking on the broader issue.

Personally, I am not in favor of interfering with nature, especially at a young age. In such cases, I believe it’s more beneficial to work with a child’s mind. If a child is unhappy with their body, we should help them address the underlying issues causing their discomfort. When they are old enough, they can make those big decisions for themselves.

On the other hand, there is nothing inherently wrong with being 'woke'. Challenging traditional norms is a driving force behind innovation. If we didn't challenge the norms, women might still be denied education. It’s ok to question conventions and propose new models, embracing diversity.

💡 If everyone strictly adhered to the norm, there would be no Bitcoin and, quite possibly, no Tesla either.


📈 Better Finance: Fractional Shares
Apart from crypto, one of the coolest products that neobanks get to offer is fractional shares. They enable everyday investors to own a piece of the world's biggest companies without substantial capital.

Fractional shares allow investors to buy a portion of a share rather than the whole thing. This democratizes investing and makes it accessible.

And yes, you can buy and sell fractional shares in European neobanks.

💡The world needs a similar but a lot more well-thought-out universal model for the future of finance: inclusive, accessible, and regulated. This way, we can create a financial system that benefits all and drives forward the next wave of economic advancement.

⚖️ Better Finance: It's All About Regulations
I guess it’s Europe's forward-thinking approach to crypto regulation that has created an environment where innovation thrives alongside consumer comfort and protection.

Neobanks with crypto on-ramps are products of this approach. These user-friendly platforms make it easier for everyday people to access and use digital currencies, seamlessly integrating with traditional banking services. Such a feature is only possible with regulatory clarity and commitment to fostering innovation.

Contrast this with the United States, where the regulatory foundation is a tangled web of agencies and state-level regulations. Crypto businesses face a constant struggle to navigate this complex system, often stifling the very innovation they are based on.

The EU model is a win for consumers. They get to enjoy convenient financial services.

🗺 I wanted to share a few thoughts on the Time Farm's roadmap we’ve just published. It’s certainly been a long journey from our early days developing HR products to the vibrant ecosystem we’re building now.

Our vision has always been about more than just immediate gains. We aim to create a platform where real value is exchanged, and where every action has meaning.

The roadmap represents a leap in that direction, especially with the integration of the SECONDS and TIME tokens into our ecosystem. These tokens are not just rewards—they’re the backbone of our products, the powerful engagement and growth drivers.

The features we’ve planned for 2024, 2025, and beyond are designed with sustainability and user empowerment in mind. Each step is about enhancing the user experience and creating long-term value.

🙏 Thank you for being part of this journey. Your support and feedback are priceless.


🫂 Creating Opportunities for People
The second thing that struck me is Chrono.tech is more relevant than it has ever been. After all, our mission is literally to bridge the gap between employers and skilled professionals, making job opportunities more accessible and efficient.

We’re committed to developing innovative employment solutions that align with the modern, global workforce. One such initiative is our upcoming micro-task platform, designed to offer flexible, scalable opportunities that meet today’s dynamic job market demands.

🛠️ This platform will allow users to earn through short, actionable tasks, making work accessible from anywhere and opening doors to new income streams.


💸 Buying crypto in Europe is super easy with neobanks like Revolut, N26, and Monzo. You just open the app, select the coin you want, and buy it directly from your account. No need for complicated exchanges or extra apps.

European legislators have made this possible by creating clear regulations that allow these banks to offer crypto services safely and securely.

I'm currently in Europe, and it feels great to be in such a tech-friendly environment, where buying crypto doesn't feel like you're doing something illegal.


🚧 Has anyone witnessed yesterday’s mayhem firsthand? In case you missed it, late Thursday night, CrowdStrike, a major cybersecurity firm, accidentally unleashed chaos with a faulty software update. This mishap caused Microsoft-based systems to crash, leading to government offices, banks, and airlines displaying the infamous blue screen of death.

It was a massive disruption.

But here’s the interesting part: Bitcoin remained completely unaffected. Since it relies on Linux-based frameworks instead of Microsoft software, its operations continued smoothly. While banks and other centralized systems were struggling, Bitcoin miners were just chugging along.

While any operating system can potentially face mishaps, the decentralized nature of Bitcoin ensures no single point of failure can disrupt the entire network.

It’s just another reason to appreciate the infrastructure behind crypto.


🤖 Adapting to AI
Various reports suggest that AI might take over many jobs, and while that might sound alarming, there's no need to panic. In the Web3 sector, I keep seeing a surge in demand for skilled professionals. That led me to two takeaways.

Firstly, for some of us, it’s time to rethink career paths. For instance, while AI might replace certain roles, like customer service representatives, leadership positions such as Chief Customer Officers (CCOs) will remain critical.

This shift doesn't mean abandoning your current role; it means aiming higher and evolving into more strategic positions.

👀 I saw this firsthand with a friend who replaced an in-house copywriter with ChatGPT. Initially, it seemed like a cost-effective solution, but soon they noticed a drop in engagement and the content became increasingly generic. They ended up rehiring their copywriter, who now commands a higher salary due to her unique value.


📚Web3 Reading List: Vitalik Buterin
By the way, while we’re on the topic, if you haven’t checked out Buterin’s blog, you really should. It’s not just about Ethereum, I promise.

He has a knack for breaking down complex concepts into simple language. Before you know it, you're diving into self-discussions on multi-dimensional gas and stateless clients, and understanding it all.

Jokes aside, for anyone looking to build a career in Web3, reading thought leaders like Vitalik is a must—it broadens your perspective and keeps you ahead of the curve.

🏛️ I promised to stay away from politics, but Vitalik Buterin's article struck a chord. He makes a crucial point about the pitfalls of supporting candidates solely based on their "pro-crypto" stance.

In the blockchain space, it's not just about regulations; it's about values like privacy, global cooperation, and inclusive innovation. Politicians should embrace these principles holistically, not just as a campaign tagline.

It's easy to get swayed by promises, but we must scrutinize beyond rhetoric. As Buterin argues, a candidate's stance on encryption, internet freedom, and international relations matters deeply.

💡I also believe that we need leaders who uphold the original blockchain values consistently, regardless of political labels.


🌐 Our Time Farm community spans the globe with a diverse user base. Here are the numbers I've mentioned in the previous post, and they reflect an interesting trend.

🔝 The top 5 countries include Nigeria, Iran, the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom. I'm not surprised by the strong presence of the Western world—it has always been quick to adopt new trends and is big on gaming.

Becoming a hit in developing countries is no less exciting. Introducing Web3 opportunities through simple things like gaming can lead to significant outcomes.

It potentially opens doors to new job opportunities, particularly in regions that can benefit the most. This global shift towards digital engagement is not just about entertainment; it's about empowering communities and fostering economic growth through innovation.

Looking ahead, I hope to see even more diverse communities join us on Time Farm and other projects within the Chrono.tech ecosystem.


🇳🇬 Spotlight on Nigeria: A Growing Gaming Powerhouse
I kept reflecting on the latest Time Farm numbers. Nigeria's rise in the gaming world is remarkable. The lack of job opportunities for young Nigerians has pushed many to seek alternative ways to make money, and many are taking gaming as a career path.

Nigeria's gaming business is set for exponential growth. With an increasing smartphone use and a growing digital infrastructure, the potential is immense.

Despite the rise in crypto adoption, the country still lacks proper regulation. But I believe it's only a matter of time before this changes. Sometimes, I feel it will be the communities in developing countries that drive crypto adoption, not the West.

The trend in Nigeria isn't just about gaming; it's about creating new job opportunities and fostering economic growth through innovation.

💡Seeing this shift is inspiring. Nigeria is a prime example of how digital engagement can empower communities and drive positive change.

💥 My newsfeed is filled with Trump pictures. Alongside the conspiracy theories and some rather bizarre (and not-so-bizarre) opinions, Bitcoin's sudden rise right after the recent events is catching everyone's attention.

All the crypto media is digging into his views on digital currencies. And then, there’s JD Vance, Trump's pro-crypto pick for the new VP.

Twitter, as always, takes things to the extreme. Overnight, Trump has morphed into a superhero on our timelines. It's a bizarre turn of events that's hard to ignore.

Let's keep this light-hearted and fun; I'm not delving into politics here—just sharing a quirky piece of art that's circulating.

And as for what could happen to crypto if Trump returns to power? Well, let's not speculate. The future of digital currencies is unpredictable enough without adding fortune-telling to the mix.

Transforming Web3 Financial Services
The launch of TON’s native USDt marks a significant milestone, showcasing rapid adoption and user engagement.

With a massive increase in TVL and strong integration across exchanges and DeFi protocols, USDt-TON is central to TON’s ecosystem. The gasless payment feature lowers entry barriers, aligning with Web3's goal of democratizing financial access.

Once again, TON demonstrates the transformative potential of Web3 projects. Integrating financial services into platforms like Telegram will be a serious step shaping the future of Web3 in general and digital payments in particular.

Keep building.


Binance celebrated its 7-year anniversary, and what a journey it has been! Since its inception, they have onboarded 210m users, become the biggest crypto exchange brand, and even reshaped the industry.

I can highlight at least 4 ways of how they did that.

• Expanded to serve millions worldwide, fostering global cryptocurrency adoption.
• Became the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange by trading volume.
• Set new benchmarks for industry-leading security protocols.
• Pioneered new products and technologies, including Binance Coin (BNB), Binance Launchpad for token launches, Binance Smart Chain for DeFi solutions, and innovative trading features.

Witnessing Binance's path is yet another reminder of how community and creativity may shape the trajectory of Web3 initiatives.

💡As both developers and users, we should take inspiration from their commitment to security, global accessibility, and pioneering spirit.
