It’s been about a year since the world was thrown into chaos because of COVID-19. Here we are, March 2021 behind us, and things have calmed down a bit in the pandemic scope. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t have some equally as riveting news recaps to share with you about the past month — let’s dive right in!

Big ship, even bigger problems.

Don’t put all your eggs in one very large container ship.

It took six days to free the Ever Given, the container ship that ran aground and clogged one of the world’s most vital shipping arteries. The Suez Canal shoulders over 10% of global trade, including 7% of the world’s oil.

However, economists say the Ever Given’s disruption of shipping probably won’t have an impact on global trade for more than a few weeks and is unlikely to derail global growth this year as more people around the world get COVID-19 vaccines and economies reopen.

If anything, this event serves as a warning on how vulnerable our supply chains are and how the just-in-time inventory techniques that have been so popular have to be rethought.

NFTs — an art bubble within a tech bubble?

What is a non-fungible token anyway?

Beeple: A Visionary Digital Artist at the Forefront of NFTs | Christie’s

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs), part of the Ethereum blockchain, represent the ownership of a unique item. In the case of digital art, where the digital files can be infinitely reproducible, NFTs basically give you clout — the proof of ownership of the work lies with the buyer while the artist can retain copyrights. It’s like owning a fine art print vs. an original Picasso.

It shouldn’t be hard to see why digital artists are jumping on to the NFT movement: it is a chance for them to make tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars for their artwork, while still retaining ownership and royalty rights every time their work is sold to another buyer.

EV Digital Competitiveness Index 2021

How the pandemic unlocked the digital economy across all of Indonesia.

EV-DCI Score Distribution Map | East Ventures

The East Ventures Digital Competitiveness Index 2021 assesses Indonesia’s digital economic condition — both strengths and weaknesses of each region, to provide a viewpoint of the massive opportunities that lie in the country.

Indonesia’s digital competitiveness index score increased by 4.13 points compared to EV-DCI 2020. The median score of 34 provinces also increased, meaning that digital competitiveness has been even between provinces even though the digital climate and ecosystem are still centred around the provinces in Java.
