Bandwagons, Crusades, Activism and FOMO


This month our Insights articles have looked at the latest trends in the decentralised world. Everyone has been talking about Non-Fungible Tokens but few understood what it meant. Fungible (an unpleasant word similar to moist in our books) became a bit of a buzzword this year. In a nutshell, something that is non-fungible is unique and non-interchangeable. It can't be traded easily for something similar, or divided. This is different from a coin - even a crypto coin - which can be both divided into smaller parts and also swapped for another coin of the same value. A non-fungible item would be like an antique car or, as in a recent move, a rare digital baseball baseball 'card'. Another bandwagon discussed this month is the omnipresent Dogecoin which may or may not be in an investment bubble. Take a look at our Insights articles this month for more explanations of this month trends, subscribe for updates and follow us on Facebook to keep up to date.

DID YOU KNOW? dWeb Mythbusters



MYTH: Cryptocurrency can't be Taxed


FACT: Like any transaction, you are usually liable for tax when you get paid in crypto. In India, for example, when you trade in crypto and make a profit exceeding 10 lakh rupees, you have to pay 30% on the profit of short-term gains. For a long-term gain (>two years), you will be taxed 20%. There are some countries where crypto investors aren't currently taxed, so make sure you check the rules where you live.

April Jellyfish - The Cauliflower



This is one more crazy looking jellyfish!


There are a few jellyfish in the genus Cephea that look like this, including one called Cephea cephea - so good they named it twice. They are sometimes called Crown Jellyfish, which may cause some confusion with the completely unrelated Crown Jellyfish like the Atollas.


If they do have a crown, it's an incredibly odd one. It's purple! With knobs on! It looks like one of those EEG hats they use to read people's brain waves (not, alas, the epitome of fine literature in this case). Also it reaches about 10 cm (4 in) across.


Then there's the thin frill used for swimming. Underneath all that are the cauliflower-like oral arms plus some extra long tentacles trailing behind. These are all covered in stinging cells for capturing prey, and the fluffy oral arms have a large surface area to make sure nothing gets away.


It ends up looking like a strange mish-mash of sundry body parts. This jelly might fall in the more eclectic style category.


What's with the jellyfish? The dWeb Guide logo is a jellyfish because they have no central nervous system: the perfect symbol of a decentralised system.
