The Future Of Bitcoin

When bitcoin was first created in 2009 nobody anticipated how powerful it would become. Most analysts predicted that it would collapse, and not even the optimists expected it to grow at such a rapid pace. Those who were “foolish” enough to invest early are now reaping the rewards. But even though bitcoin has defied the critics many times over, the future of the cryptocurrency is still hotly debated. While many analysts still believe that it will one day fail, the majority have changed their tone and are either predicting continued growth, or at the very least, sustained value. Bitcoin has been hitting milestone after milestone, and is now peaking at around $6500 per bitcoin (November 2017). However, according to CNBC presenter, Jim Cramer, the market cap is still yet to come and could exce...

5 Really Bad SEO Mistakes You Must Avoid

Whenever there’s a major Google update SEO forums turn ablaze with disgruntled search marketers wondering why their rankings have suddenly dropped. What’s most shocking, however, isn’t the penalty, but rather, why it was such a shock in the first place.

Imagine that soul-destroying feeling of losing a document you’ve been working on all morning – hours down the drain! Now multiply that feeling by 876581. That’s approximately how many hours there are in 100 years. Now imagine what it would be like to lose the entire 21st century. The phrase “soul destroying” seems somewhat tepid now, right? Data storage in the modern world is pretty terrible. A decade ago we were concerned that CDs and DVDs only had a lifespan of around forty years (although many dispute this); then we started using flash drives, which reduced that to around ten years; now we store our entire lives on our mobile devices, which we replace every 18 months. Humanity is making rapid tech advancements, but storage seems to be moving in the opposite direction. We are...

Robo Advisors Are Shaking Up The Personal Finance And Investment Sectors

Artificial intelligence is more than just a buzzword; it’s an inevitable reality. While robots might not walk, talk and live among us, through automation technology they are still making their way into our lives, streamlining everything from our day-to-day routines to our business activities. Robo advisors are the new craze in the world of personal finance and investment… Okay, the term might be misleading as they really have nothing to do with robots – at least not in the traditional sense. However, they certainly emphasise a direction of travel, one which demonstrates just how powerful automation technology is becoming. What Exactly Is A Robo Advisor? Robo advisors are online investment platforms designed to take clients through the investment process automatically, so that i...
