CES Takeaways, NFTs, and a Crypto Flash Crash
We’re just over a full week into 2022 and the amount of tech stories out there right now is almost overwhelming.
If this is any indication of what the rest of the year is going to look like, we’re in for quite a busy 2022.
This week, I have been reading about some takeaways from CES, stats about NFTs, and crypto news.
Read below for more on that and everything I have my eye on this week…
Major Takeaways From CES
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) just finished up this past weekend, and as one of the most-watched electronics showcases out there, there is plenty of information to sort through.
Between the metaverse, crypto, electric vehicles, and more, it’s hard to pick just one trend to focus on.
So here is a quick highlight reel of some of the more exciting showings at CES
Resellers Hit Covid Tests
Covid cases are spiking all over the world right now and particularly in the U.S.
In fact, the spike has gotten so bad that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to even find access to testing.
Whether people are having trouble finding physical tests or can’t find the time to get off work and go look for tests, it’s gotten to the point that resellers are scooping up available tests.
Crypto Crash? Bitcoin Below $40K
The bleeding that major cryptocurrencies have been experiencing is only getting more severe as we settle into 2022.
Earlier today, bitcoin fell below $40,000. A number it hadn’t fallen below since the flash crash back in May of 2021.
Could Self Driving Tractors Help Feed the World?
Self-driving cars still have some issues that need to be ironed out before they become commonplace.
But what about self-driving tractors?
John Deere unveiled a new self-driving tractor this year at CES and thinks that the implications could be huge.
NFT Sales Close in on Global Art
The NFT boom has taken the art world by storm.
And in just about a year, sales numbers for NFTs are right up there with sales numbers for all other art globally.
However, with the explosion of the market in both value and volume, there has been more scrutiny of its risks.
To a bright future,
