Parce qu' Osaka regorge de nombreux centres d’intérêts divers et variés je vous propose de découvrir avec moi une nouvelle curiosité : le centre commercial de Namba Parks.
Situé en plein coeur de Osaka, Namba Parks est une attraction à elle seule et quelque part une "ville dans la ville" qui dès que l'on y rentre, nous coupe complètement de l’extérieur pour nous plonger dans son univers et les méandres de ses canaux.
Pour ma part, j'ai beaucoup aimé ses couleurs flashy et ses espaces qui m'ont fait penser à un village spatial (il m'a également fait penser au Canal City de Fukuoka pour ceux qui connaissent).
Comme le plaisir est plus grand quand on le partage, je vous invite à visiter avec moi Namba Parks ^^ Pour ceux qui l'on déjà visité, vous en pensé quoi?
Amazon is looking to hire a software development engineer to develop an advertisement blockchain.
Amazon posted a job offer on LinkedIn for a software development engineer for its Colorado team, who is supposed to work on an advertisement blockchain. The online retail behemoth aims to grow its advertisement business by leveraging its online retail data, industry-leading cloud services, and a fast-moving startup culture. The post declares: “Our new team in Boulder, CO is looking for a Sr Software Engineer to work within our Advertising FinTech team focused on a Blockchain ledger, billing and reconciliation systems to provide data transparency on transnational financial data.” The chosen engineer’s role will consist of requirements analysis, lead design, implementation and deployment of core components, interfacing with engineers and program managers. The position will also be responsible for the operational support and maintenance of the systems.
Furthermore, the engineer will also “have an opportunity to define the technical and architectural roadmap for the systems.” The company noted that it prefers candidates with experience in the advertisement, financial technology and blockchain.
Do you think Amazon is trying to compete with other retailers in the blockchain industry?
Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has gone public with his belief that cryptocurrency offers an improved alternative to conventional money.
In a podcast interview with investment firm ARK Invest on Feb. 19, Musk talked about his views on the future of his companies and responded specifically to questions about his thoughts on cryptocurrency.
To that end, Musk said he believes bitcoin’s structure “is quite brilliant,” adding:
“It [cryptocurrency] bypasses currency controls. … Paper money is going away. And crypto is a far better way to transfer values than a piece of paper, that’s for sure.” That said, Musk also pointed out aspects of the industry that are keeping his companies from getting involved in using and applying the technology.
Speaking to the downsides of cryptocurrency, in the case of bitcoin for instance, he said he believes its use of a large computing network to secure its ledger is “computationally energy intensive.” He added that, for a company that aims to boost the adoption for sustainable energy, it may not be “a good use of Tesla’s resources to get involved in crypto.” “It’s very energy intensive to create bitcoin at this point,” he said.
Notably, this is not the first time that Musk had made remarks on cryptocurrency. In October last year, he made a mysterious tweet about buying bitcoin that whipped up speculation on social media, though he now says it was a joke.
Musk has been impersonated many times on Twitter by scammers who have tried to use his profile’s likeness in crypto “give-away” schemes, a development he noted in his remarks.
“Bitcoin and ethereum scammers were so rampant on Twitter I decided to join in and I said at one point wanna buy some bitcoin?” he quipped.
