2020- the year of Chaotic Disorder. Amid all that chaos we also saw some interesting trends, the revival of Digital Currencies, being one among them.

Humankind’s journey from Barter to Bitcoin has been a remarkable one. To understand the evolution of digital currencies, we need to go back in history and understand the abandonment of the Gold Standard, rise of the US Dollar and finally, its supremacy, or shall we say, hegemony.
