3 steps to ease the transition to a no-code company
The age-old adage of “doing more with less” is particularly critical advice for both startups and enterprises right now.

How African startups raised venture capital in 2022
Earlier this month, we reported that investors’ sentiments surrounding venture capital activity going into this were more reserved than upbeat. Investors believe the market correction, which caught up with the continent in the second half of 2022, will spiral into this year. But before that, there was shared optimism that African startups would raise more VC funding last year than in 2021 when the continent, for the first time, passed the $4-5 billion threshold.
There was reason to believe so.
Starling Medical’s new urine-testing device turns your toilet into a health tracker
If you enjoy some good toilet technology, then I think “urine” for a treat. Starling Medical is poised to launch its at-home urine diagnostic patient-monitoring platform, dubbed “StarStream,” that doesn’t rely on the traditional catching containers or dipsticks.
Now, if you’re thinking this technology sounds familiar, you would be correct: My colleague Haje Jan Kamps wrote about Withings’ U-Scan, a urinalysis device, earlier this month when the health-focused consumer tech company debuted it at
Energy transition investments hit $1.1 trillion — with a T — last year
Here comes the hockey stick.
After years of bumbling along, investment in the energy transition appears to be taking off. Businesses, financial institutions, governments and end users around the world sunk $1.11 trillion into low-carbon technologies, according to a new report from BloombergNEF. It was just over 30% more than 2021 and the second year in a row in which the growth rate exceeded that figure.
Perhaps more notable is the fact that for the first time ever, money put into the energy tra
Report: Stripe tried to raise more funding at a $55B-$60B valuation
When payments giant Stripe raised $600 million at a $95 billion valuation in 2021, it made headlines for raising capital at the highest-ever valuation for a privately-held startup.
Defending that valuation appears to be challenging. The fintech company has reportedly approached investors about raising more capital — at least $2 billion — at a valuation of $55 billion to $60 billion. According to the Wall Street Journal, Stripe would not use the money toward operating expenses but rather to cover

BTC Fear and Greed Index Flashes “Greed” for the First Time in 10 Months
The metric showing the community’s general sentiment toward bitcoin – the Fear and Greed Index – entered into the “greed” zone for the first time since March 30, 2022.
This could be a result of the price increase of the primary cryptocurrency during the first month of the year and the overall revival of the entire market.
Back to ‘Greed’
Contrary to the economic crisis that has spread across the globe, bitcoin has started off the year on the right foot. It currently trades at around $23,000 (acc

Bitcoin at Key Point

FLOKI Soars 15% After DAO Proposal to Burn $55M in Floki Inu Tokens
Floki Inu developers contemplate burning nearly 5 trillion FLOKI tokens (worth almost $55 million) to reduce the tax applied on each transaction.
FLOKI’s price reacted positively, surging 15% in a few hours.
The team behind the popular memecoin Floki Inu might burn its bridge tokens (4.97 trillion assets) and thus shrink the tax levied on each transaction to 0.3%. The maximum circulating supply of FLOKI will remain at 10 trillion assets even if the effort gets completed.

Crypto Price Analysis Jan-27: ETH, XRP, ADA, APT, and BNB
This week, we take a closer look at Ethereum, Ripple, Cardano, Aptos, and Binance Coin.
Ethereum’s rally cooled off this week after its price failed to stay above $1,600, booking only a 2% increase. The current trend is leaning bearish on lower timeframes, and a test of the key support at $1,550 appears imminent.
Considering the above, it is hard to expect buyers to hold onto the price in the near term as a pullback and correction seem more likely. At best, buyers can aim to def
