Robin Ford - Canadian Fintech & Funding Directory | Aaron Drapkin  | Sep 26, 2022 A recent survey has found that employees need more learning and growth opportunities to stop them from hopping between jobs. Survey: In order to find out what that entails, Microsoft has surveyed 20,000 people in 11 countries, “and analyzed trillions of Microsoft 365 productivity signals, along with LinkedIn labor trends and Glint People Science findings.” 'Re-recruit': Microsoft has advised companies to “re-recruit, re-onboard, and re-energize employees” based on the results of a recent survey that has delved into the world of hybrid work and what employees need from their companies. See:  Offer Your Employees Better Working Conditions By Following These Tips Everyone wants more development opportunities for learning and growth 76% of employees say they’d stay at their company longer if they could benefit more from learning and development support. 56% of employees and 68% of “business decision makers” report that they need more opportunities for growth or else they’ll pack up and switch jobs, whilst 55% see a switch of employment as the best route to generating a better skillset. Over two-thirds of staff surveyed (68%) say they would stay at their company or organization for a longer period of time ...

Rebecca Kacaba DealMaker - Canadian Fintech & Funding Directory | Jamie Redman | Oct 2, 2022 With the new Ethereumpow (ETHW) network launch, ethereum holders are eligible to receive a single ETHW for every ether they own. The following is a simple guide that shows ethereum holders how to access their ETHW tokens using a wallet like Metamask. A couple of weeks ago, Ethereum transitioned from a proof-of-work (PoW) blockchain to a proof-of-stake (PoS) network, and ethereum miners chose to mine a few different coins like ethereum classic and ravencoin. Some miners transitioned over to the new Ethereumpow (ETHW) network, and the blockchain has been live for more than two weeks since it launched. At the time of writing, there’s 52.27 terahash per second (TH/s) of hashrate dedicated to the ETHW network. See:  Merge Complete. Goodbye Miners, Hello Stakers The ETHW token has been trading for prices between $10.96 to $12.16 per unit during the last 24 hours. The USD value of ETHW is up 20.6% during the last two weeks, and seven-day statistics indicate the token is up 49.1%. However, during the past 24 hours on October 1, 2022, ETHW has lost roughly 7% against the U.S. dollar. Because ETH owners are eligible for ETHW at a ...

Guest Post | Oct 2, 2022 The education section of your resume summarizes your academic journey and lists any degrees and certifications that you have acquired. While it is quite straightforward to list your educational qualification, it is also important that you give proper attention to this section. In this article, we will tackle the topic of how you can elaborate on your education on your resume while optimizing it for the applicant tracking system aka ATS. What Is the Importance of Including Education on Resume? If you graduated recently or are someone with only a few years of experience, the question answers itself. After all, your academic accomplishments might be the most valuable asset when you enter the job market for the first time. See:  Fintech Fridays EP55: Global Hiring Trends: How Gen Z Talent Thrives However, if you have gained professional experience, you might wonder whether it is worth focusing on the education section on resume to land a job. Of course, your previous work experience might be considered crucial and should be more detailed; however, offering insight into your educational accomplishments can shine some light on your professional journey. Here are a few reasons that will clear ...

Crowdfund Insider | JD Alois | Sep 29, 2022 In 2021, the SEC took an important step in helping the ecosystem by increasing Reg CF from an anemic funding cap of $1.07 million to $5 million. Industry insiders believe the cap should actually be more than that – at least $10 million, or higher. The JOBS Act 4.0 seeks to improve upon Reg CF alongside other capitol formation policy goals. Hopefully, Congress will bump #J4 to the top of the legislative list, by now, the benefits should be clear. See:  JOBS Act of 2012: Ten Years of Legalized Investment Crowdfunding This past week, the Association of Online Investment Platforms (AOIP) visited with multiple House and Senate offices, along with the Securities and Exchange Commission, to share the success of the exemption, alongside the other exemptions that help companies raise money online. Crowdfund Capital Advisors (CCA) was helpful in providing an update on Reg CF. Sherwood “Woodie” Neiss, Principal at CCA, stated that Washington, DC needs to be reminded of the success.  Some key points provided by CCA, include: Companies that have raised funds online have pumped over $3.4 billion into local economies by purchasing goods and services mainly from local ...

McKinsey & Company | Anutosh Banerjee, Robert Byrne, Ian De Bode, and Matt Higginson | Sep 26, 2022 Undeniable Potential of Web3 The core distinctive feature of Web3 is the decentralization of business models. Web3, the next iteration, potentially upends that power structure with a shift back to users. Open standards and protocols could make their return. The intent is that control is no longer centralized in large platforms and aggregators, but rather is widely distributed through “permissionless” decentralized blockchains and smart contracts. Governance is meant to take place in the community rather than behind closed doors. Revenues can be given back to creators and users with some incentives to finance user acquisition and growth. Three fundamentals: Blockchain that stores all data on asset ownership and the history of conducted transactions. The “blocks” in blockchain are individual segments of data that are interlinked or chained together. As new data are added to the network, a new block is created and attached permanently to the chain. All nodes are then updated to reflect the change. The lack of central data storage is a critical differentiator from traditional databases which means that the system is not subject to a single point of ...

FP | Bianca Bharti | Sep 30, 2022 Higher borrowing costs will test the resiliency of BNPL The Bank of Canada has increased its benchmark interest rate three percentage points since March and governor Tiff Macklem has been clear he isn’t finished, as inflation is running at an annual rate of about seven per cent, too fast for a central bank that targets two per cent. So, higher borrowing costs will test the resiliency of BNPL, a type of credit popularized in recent years by digital upstarts that typically allows shoppers to pay four instalments at zero interest over a period of six to eight weeks. BNPL companies took off in the pandemic thanks in part to central banks in the United States and Europe dropping interest rates to zero, generous government stimulus that induced spending and the e-commerce boom, said Michael Taiano, senior director at Fitch Ratings Inc. See:  CFPB to Regulate BNPL Like Credit Card Firms BNPL lenders are feeling the heat. Stockholm-based Klarna Inc.’s latest fundraising round in July implied a valuation of US$6.7 billion, an 85-per-cent drop from US$45.6 billion in 2021, one of the clearest signs of dwindling confidence. Klarna cut staff by 10 per ...

Chainanalysis | Clark Flynt-Barr | Sep 27, 2022 Recently, the White House released the first-ever comprehensive framework for the responsible development of digital assets. This follows President Biden’s March 2022 Executive Order (EO) that outlined a series of policy objectives for the U.S. with respect to digital assets and called for the development of the framework and necessary inter-agency coordination.  In total, the framework included a series of reports, legislative proposals, future frameworks, and commitments for future reports.  The reports that have been released thus far: How To Strengthen International Law Enforcement Cooperation For Detecting, Investigating, And Prosecuting Criminal Activity Related To Digital Assets Climate and Energy Implications of Crypto-Assets in the United States The Future of Money and Payments Action Plan to Address Illicit Financing Risks of Digital Assets Crypto-Assets: Implications for Consumers, Investors, and Businesses The Role of Law Enforcement in Detecting, Investigating, And Prosecuting Criminal Activity Related to Digital Assets  Responsible Advancement of U.S. Competitiveness in Digital Assets Illicit Financing Government agencies are increasingly building their capacity to investigate and prosecute crimes involving the illicit use of cryptocurrency Public-private partnerships are key to success in this space There are still a number of challenges that investigators and ...

Coindesk | Aoyon Ashraf  | Sep 28, 2022 SWIFT, the interbank messaging system that allows for cross-border payments, is working with Chainlink, a provider of price feeds and other data to blockchains, on a cross-chain interoperability protocol (CCIP) in an initial proof-of-concept. CCIP will enable SWIFT messages to instruct on-chain token transfers, helping the interbank network to be able to communicate across all blockchain environments. The partnership between Chainlink and SWIFT in cross-chain interoperability will help bridge the gap between traditional and digital assets for TradFi institutions, he added. Chainlink's native token is LINK. This will help accelerate the adoption of distributed ledger technology (DLT) blockchains and benefit various institutions across capital markets, Chainlink co-founder Sergey Nazarov said at the SmartCon 2022 conference in New York City on Wednesday. See:  SWIFT to trial trade finance anti-fraud blockchain MonetaGo SWIFT’s Strategy Director Jonathan Ehrenfeld Solé: One of the reasons working with Chainlink on CCIP has been successful is that there is “undeniable interest” in crypto from institutional investors. Traditional finance (TradFi) players want access to various digital and traditional assets on one network that can connect different types of asset classes.
