Technology rules the world, but in a way in which every day life and finding new ways to make everything easier has been the top priority for everyone involved. Digital forward tech companies have made it a point, especially during these pandemic times to make sure anyone and everyone is able to live the best quality of life they can, even if while battling the ravishing effects of a global health epidemic that basically brought our world and our day to day matters to a screeching halt. All industries in life have both been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, even Las Vegas NFL odds makers, and you can tell everything has gone south when even the sports entertainment industry has had a rough time trying to find answers and solutions to relieve fans of their day to day struggles.
From top of the line advancements in the way we understand the internet, to blockchain technologies, social media platforms gaining much more importance and even the way we see and live our reality, technology has stepped up immensely to try and save the day and here are three of the main trends we have seen in 2021 that have caused a major splash in both the tech world and day to day living.
Cryptocurrencies Have Cemented Their Status and Popularity
Cryptocurrencies have been making the rounds in business driven industries for a while now, but it wasn’t until the past couple of years, including 2021 that this new form of currencies have truly taken off and started cementing their status as the new, most popular currency in the world. Cryptos such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and others have started becoming pivotal characters in the world of investments and business dealings, with the ability to use this e-money for many sorts of transactions from real estate and automobile purchasing, to paying for day to day services like healthcare, entertainment and even grocery shopping.
Since cryptos work off decentralized ledgers known as blockchains, companies that work in the production, investment and trading of cryptos have slowly been taking over the whole business and investment scene in 2021. Given the commodities that cryptos offer its users, with low taxation rates because of its universal monetary status and non-government binding existence, as well as high levels of security and privacy measures to ensure all transactions are done in the swiftest and most personalized manners, cryptos and their respective blockchain technology companies have become a favorite asset for businesses looking to make the jump into the whole crypto dealing world. With the Central American country of El Salvador being the first to acknowledge Bitcoin as one of their official currencies, the popularity rise trend that cryptos and blockchain companies have ridden through in 2021 should just be the beginning of a much larger expansion moving forward.
Social Media Platforms Have Become Pandemic Life Savers
If the global COVID-19 pandemic has taught us something is the value of learning how to be by ourselves and find the best ways to invest our time and entertainment resources to find a way to distract ourselves from the harsh reality, we have going through, enter social media platforms. Social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Tik Tok have all become pivotal tools to help humans stay in touch with what’s going on in the world, as well as cope with all the issues at hand and at points just find a way to take a breather from all the stress that surrounds them.
It can be easily debatable that ever since the emergence and rise in popularity of social media platforms, anyone and everything and anything and everything that’s someone and something is on social media. These platforms have become the perfect tool for many of life’s day to day tasks. You can do anything and everything there, from checking up on friends and family to keep up with news and world events as well as be involved in social justice platforms and other matters. Social media outlets while at times seen as enemies have become an ally for many, especially in 2021 and moving forward.
Cybersecurity Has Stepped Up To Become A New Form Of Tech Vigilante
You can find anything and everything you want on the internet, that’s a given. At the same time, if you are not aware of your surrounding online you can end up becoming the victim of a wide array of problems, scams and cybercrimes that to the naked eye can sometimes be hard to understand. This is why in 2021 cybersecurity outlets and platforms have put their foot forward in their continuing fight to make the internet a safer place for everyone. Given that nowadays internet users are invited to do almost all of their day to day dealings online, being able to offer the highest security measures is of the utmost importance.
With clients being able to do money transactions, as well as other actions that usually involve the sharing of personal information and other very sensitive data, cybersecurity companies have made it a top tier mission to ensure no threats are left unwatched and handled. Cybersecurity is one trend that will always be in continuous change and growth, all to the safety and comfort of people all around.
