Subway has 22,000 locations in the US alone. McDonald’s has 14,000, and Burger King has an estimated 7,500. No matter where you go, chances are that you will never be too far away from the cheap and convenient meals which are beloved by hundreds of millions of men, women, and children. Despite being extremely popular, you will seldom find long lines and hundreds of hungry customers when you order your 6-inch Chicken Teriyaki at Subway, a Big Mac meal with 7-Up at McDonald’s, or a Family Bucket at KFC.
Blockchain has become somewhat of a trigger word among startups over the past few years. Startups which focus primarily on blockchain raised a mind boggling 2.3 billion USD from VC firms in 2020, and with the recent cryptomania, that number is expected to go to the moon in 2021.
However, many people still incorrectly believe that cryptocurrencies and NFTs are the only uses for blockchain. Blockchain can be used for far more, and in the future, I will not be surprised if everything runs on its own decentralized blockchain. But what are blockchains, and why are they so important?
It seems like every problem in today’s world has a solution. However, the world is not stagnant; it continuously changes and develops, and with change comes new problems which need new, innovative solutions.
Without any further ado, here are the 6 start-up ideas ready to shape the future.
In 2009, Mark Gainey and Michael Horvath founded Strava, a social fitness app which connects with smartwatches such as Fitbit and Garmin and allows you to track and share your workouts using GPS- sort of like Facebook for athletes.
Their growth has been nothing short of meteoric.
Two armies are preparing for war on either side of a deep valley, in the middle of which lies a colossal, fortified city. Each army, led by a different general, has the same goal; to destroy the fortified city in the valley. However, the city is known far and wide for its powerful defenses, and the only way for it to be taken down is if it is stormed by the two armies at the same time. …
While Ether remains far behind Bitcoin’s $800 billion market value, it will not be long before the runner-up dethrones Bitcoin as the world’s biggest cryptocurrency, which currently represents 48% of the total crypto market according to CoinGecko.
Over the past few months, we have seen how Ether has been decoupling from Bitcoin; that is, their price movements are becoming distinct from each other. This is the first sign that things are going to change for Bitcoin’s unrelenting market dominance and Ether will move out of the original crypto’s shadow.
But why do I believe the currency of the future will…
The Golden [Ratio] is a mathematical definition of a proportional function which all of nature obeys, whether it be a mollusk shell, the leaves of plants, the proportions of the animal body, the human skeleton, or the ages of growth in man.
— R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz
The golden ratio, also known as the golden section, golden mean, or divine proportion, in mathematics, is the irrational number (1 + √5)/2, often denoted by the Greek letter Φ. It is approximately equal to 1.618. But what makes this seemingly arbitrary number special?
The golden ratio, represented by the Greek letter phi…
In 2014, Jia Yueting founded Faraday Future, a California-based startup which aimed to disrupt the quickly growing EV industry. It had a star-studded lineup executives and designers which previously worked for companies like Tesla, Lamborghini, BMW, and Ferrari. However, in 2019, Yueting filed for bankruptcy, with over $3.6 billion in personal debt which he had taken on for his ill-fated car company.
This is only one EV startup among hundreds which have tried to succeed but ultimately failed. Electric vehicles, while they are a quickly growing industry, are not yet the first choice among car buyers, especially among older people…
A search algorithm is an algorithm which searches for an element in a data structure. Suppose you have an array, and you want to find the index location of an element within the array. There are two main ways that you can find the index of the element: linear search and binary search.
This is the method that most people would use when searching for an element. As the name suggests, this method involves iterating through every element in an array until you find the target element. …
For anyone who has experience with Mathematics, Pascal’s Triangle should need no introduction. It was discovered by Chinese mathematician Jia Xian, when he discovered a triangle that was a representation of the coefficients in a binomial expansion. This triangle was further popularized by Chinese mathematician Yang Hui, which is why it is often known as the Yanghui triangle in China. Despite this, the modern world mostly knows this triangle as Pascal’s Triangle, after 17th century French mathematician Blaise Pascal.
