What would happen if the world’s 1.2 billion gamers were able to data mine, and from that, have a greater ability to pay for the assets, weapons, tokens and other in-game purchases they need to prevail? What if the mining happened while they slept? Gaming world, meet cryptocurrency, meet blockchain data mining. Best of all? Gamers don’t have to know a thing about blockchain mining, according to Martin Speight, CEO of Gaimin, which first announced the blockbuster disruptive software in May.“We want to give gamers throughout the world the ability to go deeper into their games and fund their passion, their expensive hobby,” Speight said. “Since gamers are not miners, and miners are not gamers, we’ve created a solution that allows passive mining to happen on their PC computer as they sleep or take a break.

Netflix versus Amazon Prime Video – depth versus breadth

Article | June 10, 2021

The first half of 2021 has been a year of continued change and disruption for subscription video. The global incumbent subscription video on demand (SVOD) leaders, Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, have been busy signalling to the financial markets how they intend to entrench their market dominance in light of the ongoing market acquisition pushes unleashed by the D2C disruptors following the D2C ‘big bang’ moment of Q4 2019 – Q2 2021. Netflix announced in January that it was no longer going to borrow on the financial markets to fund its day-to-day operations – specifically for its content acquisition budget, which is now driven predominately by commissioning original content for its service.
