Word of the day - Antediluvian

Word of the day - Antediluvian

Today’s Word Of The Day is the strange-sounding ‘antediluvian.’

In the 1600s, English speakers were using antediluvian to describe conditions they believed existed before the Great Flood from the biblical account of Noah and the Ark. By the early 1700s, the word had come to be used as both an adjective and a noun referring to anything or anyone prodigiously old. Naturalist Charles Darwin used it to characterize the mighty "antediluvian trees" some prehistoric mammals might have used as a food source.

In the context of blockchain, in the DBM Academy, coaches might talk to members who have experienced difficulties of some kind or another, perhaps a missing transaction or a platform not performing as it should.

Often, these same members are using ‘business equipment’ which is old or out-of-date. Coaches are told about laptops which don’t work on Zoom properly, or smartphones which won’t accommodate the latest or most secure wallet technology.

Would you be happy to drive your car knowing that your brakes were defective, or your wonky wheel might fall off above a certain speed? Of course not, that would be crazy, right? So why risk the safety of your blockchain assets with an antediluvian laptop?

As we enjoy the financial benefits of this new bull run, with a potential flood of wealth at our fingertips, please don’t be ‘that person’ who loses access to a life-changing stash of Bitcoin, just because your seven-year-old second-hand cold wallet stops working…

Please update your technology regularly.
And keep your individual knowledge base up to date by attending regular workshops at DBM Academy
