Despite being physically one of the largest countries in the world, Greenland has a small, and typically isolated, population. Despite this, it supports a national broadcaster, Kalaallit Nunaata Radioa (KNR). The broadcaster is government funded but remains decisively independent.
It broadcasts largely in Kalaallisut, the Greenland native language, along with Danish (Greenland is a self-governing part of Denmark), and there are ambitions to add English as well. Remarkably, KNR creates 1000 hours of unique television each year, along with 2600 hours of radio – no mean achievement for an organisation with only around 85 employees.
We spoke to Terri Morgan, co-founder of Luma Touch, about what is driving this dynamic young company’s success and where it’s going next.
Blockchain, the technology behind cryptocurrencies, can be deﬁned as a digital, immutable and decentralized ledger that chronologically records transactions in near real-time. In the process underpinning this technology, a digital transaction is veriﬁed and validated by a public or private network of computers (or nodes) and then added to an immutable ledger – the blockchain – as a new block of data. All blocks of data in the blockchain are chronologically linked to each other through timestamps.
