Monzo went from strength to strength in 2017, from smashing funding round records, garnering praise for weathering the storms of outages eloquently and transparently, to being hailed by Mashable as a byword for a chat-up line in London’s bars.
Cryptocurrencies and token sales are the next frontier in fintech, says Simon Taylor, who outlines the benefits and potential risks of a crypto asset space. Since the dawn of the crypto asset space with bitcoin, the mainstream reaction has been somewhat wary and distrusting of many of the innovations we’re seeing. Yet, the growth of crypto assets has reached a tipping point, in my view, where it can no longer be ignored.
Simon Taylor is co-founder and director at 11:FS, a FinTech advisory firm, and the former vice president of entrepreneurial partnerships at Barclays. In this CoinDesk 2016 in Review special feature, Taylor discusses what he sees as the challenges (and opportunities) ahead for enterprise applications of distributed ledger tech.
@byongho I can follow a logic that says, they'll adopt other Ripple offerings whilst XRP continues it's journey for legitimacy in the eyes of global regulators.
I'd question whether we are at that point yet.
@byongho Creating a settlement asset requires a legal and regulatory framework, not just a technical one. I think that framework isn't in a place where many banks can get comfortable with it at scale.
That said - other - non cryptocurrency related bits of the ripple offering they can
@byongho All I ever questioned was the relative maturity of Ripple's solution and ability to solve that problem - vs perception / marketing / journalists confusing the various bits of the ripple offering. Redefining settlement is non trivial and requires acceptance
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
