Nihilism is permeating in Western Societies but it's starting to spread across the world. Distrust in politics, economy, financial markets, science, and perhaps even technology.

The more I examine the crypto industry, I can’t help but feel a generational and paradigm shift that started to happen in the backdrop of the global financial crisis in 2008. No longer do the Millenials, GenZs and even GenXers want to accept the economic and systematic construct that keeps them out of control of not only their wealth but how their …
 
We need to challenge the definition of success that society showcases for all of us. The stardom, the big house, and cars, the luxurious vacations. All of that is empty without the human connection.
