In a mere couple of months the entire population somehow had to get used to ordering, transacting and banking online. Every Kiryana Shop now has a scanning code or some form of online payment. Blockchains and cryptocurrencies are revolutionizing the way we look at money!
Soon a new set of ethical dilemmas emerged and new problems arose as technology became more and more essential.
There is now an entirely new set of risks like identity theft, online scams, theft of intellectual property, violation of privacy and catfishing (digital misrepresentation of identity).
