    Episode 16: Corona, Cryptocurrency and the future of Brands

    Episode 16: Corona, Cryptocurrency and the future of Brands

    Bitcoin’s hashrate hit an all time high in 2019 and prices climbed as high as $13,000, many crypto enthusiasts thought the world was finally noticing it and believed that the market was back on track from the slump of 2018. With the halvening shifting closer, many expected 2020 to be the year that Bitcoin would moon again.

    Then the Coronavirus pandemic happened and disrupted modern society, affecting everybody’s lives. Its shocking effects travelled across borders to the four corners of the earth. Crowded squares are now empty, businesses are shutting down operations everywhere, and the stock markets have lost a ton of dollars.

    Bitcoin itself shed +$2,000 in 24 hours during the second week of March. By the start of the third week, the weekly loss was as huge as 40%. Alerts from Blockfolio were frequent and heartbreaking.

    Posts on Bitcoin forums and social media were filled with panic. The by-products of this pandemic are fear and uncertainty. And if you’re a crypto holder, add doubt to the mixture. These 3 emotions, rightly induced by the Coronavirus pandemic- everyone in their right senses is concerned about the virus, forced a heavy selling-off of Bitcoin.

    So, prices fell quickly and hard. Big exchanges like Bitmex and Binance suffered downtimes, run aground by the huge number of sell orders. It was chaos.

    What does the future hold?

    Contrary to current market sentiments and perceptions, the future of Bitcoin is bright.

    To combat the pandemic, the United States, the United Kingdom and other governments are blatantly printing money out of thin air. It’s not an ideal solution but it’s what they best know how to do. Their aim is to mitigate the virus’s catatonic effects on the stock market. But this action has far-reaching consequences.

    An influx of cash into any economy will definitely weaken its currency and cause inflation because more money is chasing after limited goods and services. Everything will be more expensive and your money in the bank will lose a fraction of its value.

    Before the pandemic, the world’s economy was already fragile and you can guess that the current situation can plunge it into an ominous depression worse than that of 2008. It’s unsure if governments will be able to successfully deal with this resulting fallout. This pandemic could be the straw that will break the camel’s back.

    In this time of financial crisis, Bitcoin will likely be a succor. Its value is determined by its users, has a deflationary nature, and it is not controlled by a single entity. It is also backed by mathematics and is unhackable.

    With Bitcoin’s limited coin distribution and the halving drawing closer, there’s no doubt it will be more scarce as more people flock to it because fiat is worth less.

    So what is the future of brands and bitcoins in the era of Cryptocurrency?

    I talked to Anna Tutova, the CEO of Coinstelegram to find out.

    Episode 15 : Managing your brand communications during the Corona Crisis. Karnvir Mundrey speaks to Nina Nørgaard Jacobsen

    Its unusual times, and never in recent history have we seen the complete long term shut down of the global economy – as well as fear about the future.

    In such a situation it is the job of us – the communicators – to stand up and take a greater role in using the tools that we have to better explain and communicate to the world.

    However – there will be a paradigm shift in the methods and process during such a time. The next couple of episodes I converse with industry leaders about their strategies for these uncertain times.

    In this episode I speak to Nina Nørgaard Jacobsen, CEO & founder of Biites.com - the brand film distribution platform.

    biites is a premium platform dedicated to branded content film and series as well as AFP (advertiser funded programs), free for all to watch and enjoy. Their aim is to push the limits of branded and sponsored partnerships, showcasing how new constellations and creative thinking can cater to viewers’ interests while serving a commercial benefit.

    I began by asking Nina on her reaction to the situation and how her organisation was reacting to it.

    Episode 13: Learn the art of content marketing & storytelling. With Stefano Marrone. A conversation with Karnvir Mundrey.

    The secrets of creating great content with storytelling! Revealed in this episode!

    The Content Marketing Institute, an online resource for information on all things content marketing related, defines content marketing thusly:

    Content marketing is a marketing technique of creating and distributing valuable, relevant and consistent content to attract and acquire a clearly defined audience – with the objective of driving profitable customer action.

    The key word here is “valuable.” It’s what changes this definition from one that could describe almost any form of advertising or marketing. You can tell if a piece of content is the sort that could be part of a content marketing campaign if people seek it out, if people want to consume it, rather than avoiding it.

    Stefano Marrone, has been pioneering the art of great content marketing. Hear his secrets and learn in this indepth episode.

    Episode 12: How the building industry can improve its Public Relations!

    Episode 12: How the building industry can improve its Public Relations!

    The building and the construction industry is one of the key sectors for any economy. Yet it is also the most distrusted.

    From New York to London to New Delhi, every new construction project is looked at with suspicion. Because as a population we are generally negative towards change.

    The average person still doesn’t understand, necessarily, what a huge impact, not just architecture, but the whole built environment has on their lives.
