The Cryptocurrency Industry Is Hiring Despite Market Volatility
For longtime Bitcoin owners, volatile markets are nothing new. And despite the havoc that COVID-19 is wreaking on Wall Street, the cryptocurrency industry seems to be stable. In fact, one company is even hiring. Forbes' Michael Del Castillo speaks with Kraken cofounder and CEO Jesse Powell to discuss the state of affairs and why Powell is seeing positive gains in an otherwise bleak marketplace.
CGTN's Rachelle Akuffo spoke to Erinn Tucker, associate professor and faculty director of the Global Hospitality Leadership program at Georgetown University's School of Continuing Studies, about the hospitality industry is adapting to the coronavirus pandemic. Michael Zakkour, Founder of 5 New Digital, talked about how China's e-commerce industry is recovering from the pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a devastating blow to European and international travel. Now, as the travel industry re-starts its engines, and border restrictions begin to ease, what challenges does it face in getting us on the move again? How are airports and airlines adapting and innovating? How confident should passengers feel? And what does it all mean for the revival of the tourism sector?

Do you have a question for the panel too? Please leave it for us in the comments section. The United Nations is warning of a mental-health crisis brought on by the corona-virus. It says governments need to take immediate action. Millions of people are suffering from psychological repercussions, especially those closest to the pandemic. Many Kids say that they're sad, bored or worried and doctors warn that their mental health is at stake.
But adults are suffering too. Many have lost their jobs and need assistance to get along. Their daily struggle to make ends meet is a mental strain.
Then there's the mental well-being of health workers. They have to deal with so many deaths. Even their own colleagues. All the time worrying they could be next.
