It’s been another tough month in terms of inflation. Global inflation appears to be getting out of control, hitting 13-year highs in the US and rapidly exceeding forecasts in the UK. Jason’s commentary on these increasingly concerning figures appeared in Daily Mail, Daily Express, This is Money (scroll down to 10.09 on the live blog), MoneyWeek, MSN and Disruption Banking.

If rising inflation wasn’t bad enough, the UK is still struggling with record low interest rates. What does this mean for consumers & savers? Read our thoughts in Daily Express, FT Adviser, MSN, European Business Magazine and Disruption Banking.

Central Bank Digital Currencies are coming, but how concerned should we be about the imminent launch of a new government-controlled currency? Read Jason’s opinion on CBDCs in The Week.

Wondering why Jason launched Glint and what our plans for the future are? Jason sat down with TechRound to discuss Glint, crowdfunding & alternative currencies.

Our big news was the successful closure of our crowdfunding round through Seedrs. US investors can still invest via Republic and join the 1,200 investors who have already joined the Glint community and smashed our fundraising target. Our funding announcement was covered by Greensheet, Fintech Futures, Finextra, The Fintech Times, Fintech Herald, Disruption Banking and The Armchair Trader.

This month also marked another Glint milestone as we processed over $250m in total transactions- yet another indication of the appetite for alternative currencies. Greensheet, Blockchain Tribune and Disruption Banking looked at the announcement in more detail.
