@josevas217 gives us a phrase inviting us to develop a publication from said phrase, allowing us to develop our creativity, make our opinion known and be able to judge the content of this statement.

"Technology is important, but the only thing that really matters is what we do with it." Muhammad Yunus

As we can see, the phrase has to do with technology, but when I read the contest post, the first thing that occurred to me was to rummage through the author's biography, finding a wonderful career in social work worth highlighting, which was worth it. to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize a well deserved distinction for Muhammad Yunus.

"Technology is important, but the only thing that really matters is what we do with it." Muhammad Yunus

This sentence at first seems to lack depth, because it seems very obvious what planet, however, when we think about the misuse of some technological developments we can understand what the author is saying.

We can assure that the technology itself is harmless, but it has been shown that many around the world are misusing it, the development of nuclear technology for war purposes, the development of unmanned aircraft (Drones) to be used in bombings where civilians die.

The Internet and social networks are a very useful medium, which represents a great advance for humanity, ideal tools for telework, studies etc ... This reality changes when the networks are used by pedophiles, by fanatics to recruit children to criminal organizations, prostitution network, drug trafficking etc.

One of the most innovative technologies in development has been important and Blockchain technology, which has become a means to make wealth or simply a source of income for people like us who see our efforts rewarded on platforms like this, or through small investments in other platforms.

However, this technology also does not escape misuse by some actors, scams, money laundering, drug trafficking, among other complaints that link this technology with criminal groups.

In conclusion.

To conclude, I want to highlight the fact that technology has become almost essential for modern society, that is why we highlight the importance of technological developments that are available to us in any area, media, health, transport, agriculture, sports, blockchain and others; We also encourage innovation in technology to continue.

"Technology is important, but the only thing that really matters is what we do with it." Muhammad Yunus

For what purpose do we use technology? We can say then that technology is important, but more important is what we do with it, that we give it an appropriate use to benefit from it, benefit others and not harm anyone in this process.

Thanks for being here, let me know your opinion!


We are Project HOPE a community that brings hope!

Hi @fuch080

but it has been shown that many around the world are misusing it, the development of nuclear technology for war purposes, the development of unmanned aircraft (Drones) to be used in bombings where civilians die.

There is some briliant new technology out there and I cannot imagine a life without the tech I use daily but it does also worry me the destructive nature that the world has developed. As you mention, some have used technology to allow mass destruction and killing.

Greetings dear @fucho. very accurate sentence analysis, technological advances are within everyone's reach, and just as many use them for good, others use them for evil, so technology itself is neither good nor bad, it depends on the use it is given.

I believe the world we are now is to the technology advancement we have been opportune to witness. So much technology has contributed to our life beyond our imagination

Asides the blockchain, a lot of technological innovations were not for the good of people but for war purposes although, they end up being good to other citizens asides the military as a whole. I guess the reason why the blockchain was meant for good at its first intent was because it had to do with finance and it came after the financial crises of 2008.

Hi @fucho80
Thank you for participating in the contest.
Good entry, good contributions, you mentioned good examples of good and not so good uses of technology.

Noble Winning Dr. Muhammad Yunus has stated it right. Technology has no downside but it's the matter who are using it in which direction
