John McAfee hardly goes a day on twitter without mentioning his favorite crypto project of Docademic (MTC) and its corresponding App that will revolutionize healthcare not only in South America but the entire United States. The app currently offers its services in 20 countries in Latin America and plans on expanding to other countries and regions with time.

McAfee believes that Docademic has the potential to offer the elusive universal healthcare that has been a topic of discussion from the Barack Obama administration to the current administration of President Trump in the United States.

It is with this background that McAfee has announced that Docademic is working on integrating the English language into its app this month as well as launching operations in the United States beginning July 1st. John McAfee announced the following via twitter when he said:

“Docademic Bilingual Training Center in Mexico City in anticipation of its first English Language App to be released this month. Docademic will launch its first US operation in California on July 1st. On July 23rd they will add a new App for emergency psychological services.”

With the expansion of Docademic into California, a state with a population of close to 40 Million, its residents will get the benefits of the platform in terms of getting regular healthcare services as well as psychological services. With respect to the latter, mental health has been a challenge for the entire country of the US. From soldiers coming back from wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to the regular mum undergoing stresses of managing a household; the issue of personal mental well being needs more emphasis for a healthy American nation.

The Docademic app allows its users to get almost free personalized medical assistance, through the vast network of certified doctors in the Docademic network. Since patient records are on the blockchain, the doctors have decentralized access to patient records, giving them a clearer understanding of the medical history of the patient on the other end of the app. If the medical condition is too great for the doctor to advise on the app, s/he recommends the patient to a specialist at an actual hospital.

With Docademic making its debut in California, John McAfee now has some campaign material for his 2020 presidential bid. McAfee has openly admitted that his chances of winning are slim, but the democratic process of vying for the seat will give him a worldwide platform to showcase his vision for not only universal healthcare but for better governance in the United States. Vying for president will also give him an avenue of voicing his opinion on the regulatory issues the crypto-verse faces in the country through the SEC.

Reasons Why You Are Much Safer When Crypto Trading on Dexes

DEXes

While many cryptocurrencies aim to bring the change to the world by bringing full decentralization, one aspect of the crypto space still remains mostly centralized, and that is the way they are exchanged. Most crypto exchanges are centralized companies, where traders and investors need to deposit their coins for safekeeping. This is a risky way to handle the funds, as exchanges remain susceptible to hacks and theft, as many realized recently, after the hack of the world’s largest exchange by trading volume, Binance.

During the hack, around 7,000 BTC (over $40 million) was taken, and sent to multiple wallets, never to be seen again — for now, at least. The hack also came as quite a shock, as Binance was known for its efficiency, security, and high levels of confidence. It also made people realize that their coins are not really theirs if they need to rely on third parties, such as exchanges, to keep them safe. As a result, many are now turning away from centralized exchanges, and are heading towards decentralized ones — also known as DEXes.

Here are some reasons why you might want to consider doing the same.

1. True ownership of your coins

The crypto community has a saying: “not your keys, not your coins.” The saying is now more relevant than ever, but it does not apply on DEXes. Decentralized exchanges

Crypto prices are once again going up, and Bitcoin has just passed a major resistance level at $6,000. With a situation like that, it is not surprising that everyone in the crypto community is looking forward to the future, wondering what to expect in years to come. Many experts have already given their predictions, some more optimistic than others, but almost all bullish.

Crypto billionaire Mike Novogratz has always been very supportive of cryptocurrencies, and very bullish on Bitcoin. He recently stated that he sees the coins’ prices triple in the following 18 months, meaning that Bitcoin’s return to $20,000 might not be far away, according to him.

He noted that Bitcoin is back to $6,000 after its price hit as low as $3,100 only a few months ago. These days, Novogratz does not believe Bitcoin will return to such lows unless there is a devastating exchange hack or a major shift in regulations. Of course, there was a big hack that had the potential to damage the coin’s price, only days ago. The world’s largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance, saw a significant security breach which resulted in a theft of 7,000 BTC.

However, so far, the coin did not react negatively to this incident. While Novogratz believed that such an event would shatter the new confidence in BTC, it simply did not happen. However, he…

Corporate executives are turning to blockchain technology more than ever in an attempt to revolutionize the business world.  Although blockchain is still a relatively new concept, that hasn’t stopped more and more companies from jumping on the bandwagon.  This hot new technology has quickly gained a reputation for providing greater transparency, enhanced security, improved traceability, increased efficiency, and low costs.  One industry that could certainly benefit from decentralization is the online gambling market, specifically, online casinos.  TokenRoll (TKR) has developed a platform that appears to offer a promising alternative to centralized casinos.

Problems with Centralized Casinos

The primary reason why blockchain technology is being implemented so quickly is because it solves a lot of the problems typically associated with the traditional business model.  And online casinos are no different.  It still needs to be said that centralized casinos have proven that there is a great demand for online gambling.  The market is growing faster than anyone could have predicted, and future opportunities appear very promising and lucrative.  But industries are continually evolving and this one is no different.

A few of the problems facing centralized casinos include the following:

  • Little to no transparency
  • Consumer lack of confidence
  • Privacy concerns
  • 48-72 hour wait time for withdrawals

These are four monumental issues that need to be addressed quickly given the global growth of the market.  Casinos need to…
