2030, what if robots did not take all the jobs?

Singapore, 2030 — It is hard to believe now, but a little more than a decade ago people were seriously worried about robots taking all the jobs.

Quick Snapshot

Last week was a big week for crypto. Starting with good news: Vitalik Buterin, the computer scientist who created Ethereum (ETH), told IEEE Spectrum that mining cryptocurrency can be “a huge waste of resources, even if you don’t believe that pollution and carbon dioxide are an issue”, Buterin said. “There are real consumers — real people — whose need for electricity is being displaced by this stuff.”
