Within the world of high technology, one named stands above all others. Shervin Pishevar has been involved in the tech space since the late 1990s. He has personally founded a number of highly successful tech startups, including Ionside, WebOS and Social Gaming Network. He’s also the CEO and founder of Sherpa Capital, one of the most important venture capital firms in Silicon Valley. Sherpa Capital has been behind the formation of some of the top names in tech today, including Uber, Airbnb and Virgin Hyperloop.
When Shervin Pishevar is not busy running his technological empire, he often finds time to address his more than 100,000 Twitter followers. His Twitter feed is filled with insightful analysis on everything ranging from therole of tech monopolies to the ways in which central banking policies can affect the overall economy.
Recently, Shervin Pishevar has taken up the issue of heavy-handed central banking interventions. He says that a generalized asset bubble has formed. Shervin Pishevar believes that in the coming months and years, there’s going to be a serious correction in the equity markets as well as a matching crash in both real estate and bonds. Shervin Pishevar says that the quantitative easing programs that the central bank has followed over the last 10 years have led to so much easy credit and excess money supply that a generalized acid bubble has been inflatedthat rivals anything that the country has ever seen in the past.
Specifically, Pishevar predicts there will be a 6,000-point drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. He believes that this may happen as early as 2019 but that it could also occur as late as 2025. But he says that he is almost certain that such a correction will eventually materialize when the central bank decides to begin raising benchmark interest rates and winding down its balance sheet back towards normal historic levels.
He says that there may not be any traditional safe havens for investors to park their money in when this asset winddown of the central bank begins to occur. Shervin Pishevar recommendsthat investors hold cryptocurrencies, gold and currencies outside of the U.S. dollar.

Within the world of online games, particularly role-playing or quest-based games, there is a thriving marketplace for buying and selling virtual assets between players. While this market may not be well known, gamers are currently exchanging digital goods to the tune of about $45 billion annually, through local and regional marketplaces, as well as commercial marketplaces such as OPSkins and, this marketplace will only keep growing as we spend more time online and create more digital assets.
Until January of 2018, after the launch of WAX (WorldWide Asset Exchange), the online marketplace had security issues, was inefficient and struggled with currency exchanges. WAX was developed as an online token, utilizing blockchain technology and powered by Delegated Proof Stake (DPOS), to combat the insecurity of online virtual asset trading and to eliminate foreign exchange conversions and third-party transaction fees. By bringing cryptocurrency into the online gaming world, Malcolm CasSelle, the CIO of OPSkins and president the WAX blockchain platform believes that it will be the gamers that will bring cryptocurrencies mainstream.
Holding degrees in computer science for MIT (undergraduate) and Yale (graduate), Malcolm CasSelle has gained experience through startups such as Xfire, Timeline Labs, and Media Pass to understand the value of virtual assets.
As OPSkins network opened up the virtual market, Malcolm CasSelle has seen the influence gaming has on the economy and he is excited about the direction that WAX tokens are taking the online gaming asset marketplace. Because the WAX tokens have eliminated intermediaries in transactions and have allowed millions to open personalized virtual stores for gaming assets, it has increased the economy of this market exponentially.
By creating the WAX platform, Malcolm CasSelle has provided security to virtual asset transactions, allowing gamers to fully take advantage of the marketplace without the financial risk that existed before the WAX tokens. This, in turn, has increased the use of cryptocurrency and its applications and will soon, because of gamers, become mainstream.

Jordan Lindsey has made some big moves in both Forex and cryptocurrency over the past few years. He founded the wildly successful JCL Capital more than a decade ago in 2005, and is also the founder of some other companies within the industries of both technology and financial services. As a child who grew up in New York, the young Jordan Lindsey was quite interested in sports. His competitive spirit eventually evolved into an entrepreneurial spirit, which led him to the conclusion that he wanted to leave a positive impact on his surroundings. Growing a successful business, he concluded, was the best way for him to reach this goal.
Within the world of algo trading, Jordan Lindsey is an established veteran with years of experience. Impressively, he taught himself computer programming from scratch, and eventually turned that set of skills into career success through working as a systems architecture designer. Mr. Lindsey chose to move from his home in New York to the other side of the country after discovering that he had a great love for San Francisco because of the city’s culture, which encouraged entrepreneurship, appreciation of art and sharing ideas. He was previously a student at both Mount Angel Seminary an St. Joseph’s College.
One of Jordan Lindsey’s more recent accomplishments is that he has complete his work with the development of a special trading algorithm for the foreign exchange markets. He designed this algorithm to attack a very specific problem that many traders of both forex and digital currency face. The problem the algorithm solves is the fact that many traders struggle with separating their emotions from their trading. This can have some very negative impacts, such as selling out of their positions too early in reaction to a slight fluctuation in a currency’s price. Trading based on Mr. Lindsey’s algorithm is a solid solution to the issue of removing emotion from the trading experience for greater profits.

The milestones undertaken by Eric Lefkofsky in the development of the operating system software that helps in cancer screening has exacerbated the discovery of noble concepts that help fill the missing links as to what causes cancer. Tempus has become a vital company that has taken a critical role of delving deep into the research realms in order to shed light on the causative elements of lung cancer. The research conducted by Dr. Yafang Li on the gene-smoking links brought a good deal of insight into the lung cancer case. The universal notion that only tobacco smokers are more likely to contract lung cancer was superimposed since tobacco nicotine serves as the prerequisite to lung cancer etiology.
There were three genes that were discovered to be the predisposing factor to the acquisition of lung cancer. Two polymorphs of single-nucleotides and one squamous cell lung cancer were established. They served as the lung cancer biomarkers that could be used for screening and intervention. The study was limited to the Caucasian population based on the smoking habits of individuals. The phenotype and genotype data were utilized in the analysis. The information obtained helps in classifying lung cancer according to the smoking habits. The team is aiming at expanding their test to other ethnic setups. The strategies put in place are bound to contribute monumentally in the struggle to combat cancer.
