Trenton, NJ - According to Guillermo C. Artiles and Alexandra Viqueira, "More than five years after passing what should have been landmark digital currency legislation, New York is already beginning the onerous regulatory reform process of the BitLicense. In 2015, cryptocurrency was still a fledgling industry, and the New York Legislature’s clumsy attempt at managing its growth succeeded only in pushing talented and entrepreneurial businesses across the Hudson River. Digital currency continues to expand, but elsewhere – and now New Jersey has an opportunity to demonstrate what nurturing a thriving new sector looks like."

Westerville Ohio- According to SSTI, new analysis from the World Economic Forum (WEF) forecasts an 85 million global loss in jobs by the year 2025 due to pandemic-induced increase in technology adoption. While social distancing measures such as remote work have already brought many white collar workers into the “future of work,” the quickened pace of technology adoption and automation across all sectors will create greater employment challenges for lower paid and lower skilled workers. The WEF’s Future of Jobs Report 2020 also indicates that the jobs created to work with these new technologies could reach 97 million by 2025. However, business leaders and the public sector must take action to promote equitable workforce development and prepare all workers for the jobs of the future.
