Although El Salvador currently imports 19.23% of the electricity it needs, mining Bitcoin (especially at times when demand for electricity is low) may prove to be an efficient way to harness volcanoes’ geothermal energy 24/7. Will Bitcoin mining using volcanoes prove to be not only an…

In 2014, the Swiss and the European Union began negotiations on an institutional agreement which ultimately broke down. As of July 2019, this break down resulted in the Swiss losing their recognition of equivalence, meaning that EU investment firms would not be able to trade Swiss stock, such as Nestle, Novatis, Rocche, Chubb etc listed on Swiss stock exchanges.

Typically, mirror/ copy trading is a service offered when someone, or a company, wishes to copy a trader/manager who has a proven track record, whether that be buying and selling of foreign exchange (FX), commodities, equities, or cryptocurrencies. This trading is also often used where the trader/manager is using gearing/leverage, which is often the case when it comes to managing FX and commodities.

In very simplistic terms, Blockchain technology is likely to impact the insurance sector in two predominant ways: operationally — i.e., making infrastructure much less expensive in terms of the day-to-day way it conducts its business activities, and as an investor — i.e., the way insurance companies hold as well as the types of investments insurance firms’ trade. …

Furthermore, their inherent attributes include universal acceptance, divisibility (i.e. carats), fusibility (i.e. pile of diamonds). …
