“As we’re living in the age of cryptocurrency, industries are keeping up with the wave, and UnitedMasters recently broke ground in the music industry. According to a press release, the Black-owned music distributor announced that its new partnership with Coinbase will allow artists to get paid in any cryptocurrency supported on the platform. The company is now one of the first to offer the service, Bloomberg reports. The goal of the partnership is to ’empower independent artists by giving them transparency, equity, and control over their earnings.'”

Some people think cryptocurrency is the path to wealth for marginalized communities. Getting paid in cryptocurrency may be another good thing for artists. I guess we’ll see.

These Founders Are Building A Diverse Community For Sneakerheads Through Their Startup Tradeblock

(Article by Ngozi Nwanji on afrotech; Photo Credit: David Avila)

“There’s a difference between being for the culture and doing it for the culture and the three visionaries at Tradeblock — a sneaker trading app where kicks are currency — are committed to the latter for the sneaker community.

The Austin-based startup officially hit the ground running earlier this year in May, but the initial vision for Tradeblock was birthed in 2009 by co-founder Tony Malveaux. While inspired by ESPN’s Trade Machine, Malveaux connected with his longtime best friend and now fellow co-founder Darren Smith about his idea — but it was a dream deferred until bringing their fellow childhood friend Mbiyimoh Ghogomu — Tradeblock’s CEO — onboard and from that moment they’ve become trailblazers in the sneaker marketplace.”

“According to a New York Times article, at least three African-Americans have been falsely accused because of incorrect facial recognition matches. A false accusation cost Nijeer Park 10 days in jail and $5,000 in legal fees.

These “false positives” happen because the people who design these programs are predominately white. Silicon Valley is dominated by white (and some Asian) programmers. And some of them, who subscribe to the far-right/libertarian ideology, the new reactionary movement (NRx,) believe that’s because of racial superiority.”

Cheap Cryptocurrency: Five Coins You Can Add to Your Wallet Today

Article by Matthew Makowski

“When it comes to a cheap cryptocurrency, there are a couple ways to look at it. And keep in mind, “cheap” is always subjective. First off, whether you’ve got five bucks or $5 million, just about any cryptocurrency is within reach. The only boundary to entry is usually set up by the crypto exchange. One of our favorites, Coinbase, has a $2 minimum. That means you can purchase or sell as little as $2 worth of any cryptocurrency on that exchange. But for our purposes, we’re going to look at five altcoins that have a whole lot more room for growth…”

How Blockchain Will Personalize Healthcare

“Modern healthcare data systems are contained in disparate and disconnected information silos in doctors offices, hospitals, pharmacies, laboratories, and mobile devices. The information is so segregated that it often prevents healthcare providers from providing fast and efficient care to patients. Blockchain technology can be a solution to keeping all patient data in a single, secure location. “

How blockchain is shaking up commercial real estate

by David Israelson

“It’s not as complicated as it seems, Mr. Koparde says. ‘Technology addresses a few challenges that exist in real estate,’ he explains. ‘One is [that it] provides a digital platform that can let people invest in property in the same way as they do in stocks and funds.’

A new way of raising commercial property finance, investors will, for example, be able to click “buy” on their smartphones to purchase a percentage of a planned new office complex without having to sign a stack of contracts and real estate documents.”
