Eugene Melnyk is leafing through a 112-page document at his home in Barbados, sipping on a caffeine-free, citrus-flavoured drink. The document, he said, was a plan, the master plan detailing how, position by position and player by player, the Ottawa Senators, of which he is the sole and oft-maligned owner, will be rapidly transformed into Stanley Cup champions from a non-playoff team.

“I truly believe that we are a Stanley Cup winner within four years,” he said. “It can happen any time, but within four years.”

Melnyk speaks with certainty and obvious enthusiasm for his subject, all but guaranteeing victory and boasting of his team’s bright young stars, Thomas Chabot and Brady Tkachuk, the fistful of top prospects the Senators would snap up

Central banks eager to master digital currencies

Most central banks across the world are now scrambling to master the concept of digital currencies, a disruptive technology once they looked upon with regulatory scepticism.
Seeking to win a first-mover advantage in the race, China’s central bank is issuing 10mn yuan ($1.5mn) worth of digital currency to 50,000 randomly selected consumers in what some see as the country’s first public test of the digital yuan payment system.
The People’s Bank of China’s (PBoC) campaign comes as central banks worldwide race to issue digital currencies to modernise payments systems, as well as to fend off potential competition from privately issued cryptocurrencies.
