With property purchases on the rise in the UK, expect to hear a lot more about Bitcoin mortgages in the coming months. Amid a boom in crypto prices, retail investors are capitalising on the surge to deploy their proceeds into real estate.

The life and journey of a Crypto artist by Pierre Bourque

In my case, I’ve been creating art for just about all my life. First with crayons, pencils & pens. Then, with charcoal, oils, & acrylic. More recently, with the tools available to a digital nomad such as my laptop and mobile phone, along with the phone’s camera and the laptop’s apps.

It’s a process that sometimes transfers from mind’s eye to the screen automagically, and at other times can take multiple tries to the point that I will more often than not throw out and delete a work and…

The performance takes time and can be very fickle, as can be seen by the fact that active funds typically underperform the indices that they are supposed to beat. Furthermore, in the past, large banks and insurance companies have had a captive investor- base or have…
