History in the making as El Salvador adopts Bitcoin as legal tender premium
As El Salvador becomes the first country in the world to make Bitcoin official legal tender on Tuesday, I will explain to BBC News tomorrow why it could help boost the country’s economic growth and jobs. The smallest country in Central America will adopt the world’s largest cryptocurrency by market cap as national currency alongside the U.S. dollar.

SEC is correct: crypto needs regulations premium
The chair of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is, we believe, right that crypto trading platforms should be regulated. The Financial Times published an interview with Gary Gensler last week, in which he said although he was “technology neutral”, crypto assets were no different than any others in terms of investor protection, guarding against illicit activity and maintaining financial stability. Gensler’s stance on cryptocurrencies should be welcomed. With Read More

NFT market will double within a year premium
I’m confident that the booming NFT (non-fungible token) market will more than double in sales in a year as major investors continue to join the market. Recent examples over the last week include Visa purchasing “CryptoPunk,” one of the thousands of NFT-based digital avatars, for close to $150,000 in Ethereum, and Marvel Entertainment unveiling its first official NFTs in the form of Spider-Man ‘digital statues.’ NFTs are unique digital assets designed to represent Read More

Ethereum’s rise to the top seems unstoppable premium
Ethereum will keep outperforming Bitcoin this year and ultimately surpass its rival’s value. Yes, I recognise it’s a bold prediction, but looking at the stats, Ethereum is up around 240% in 2021, compared to less than 38% for Bitcoin. In fact, ETH has outperformed all other benchmark assets in the first six months of the year. As I was quoted by City AM and Cointelegraph, amongst other media, there are two principal reasons that are fuelling Ethereum’s performance this Read More

Bitcoin will return to its previous all-time highs by the end of this year, driven up by the recent comments on cryptocurrencies from Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey and Cathie Wood at the The B Word Conference earlier this week. Tesla and Space X founder Elon Musk, Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, and Ark Investment’s Cathie Wood all talked about the massive future potential of Bitcoin – the world’s largest cryptocurrency – at this virtual event.

Crypto Crash: Crypto-haters are wrong premium
Bitcoin and other digital currencies experienced a major sell-off this week following the crackdown by China. However, the crypto cynics should not rebuff cryptocurrencies. It’s been something of a turbulent week for crypto. Around $400 billion has been wiped off the total digital currency market since last Friday, when a key Bitcoin mining hub instructed miners to cease operations. This followed reports that the People’s Bank of China ordered banks to freeze all payment Read More

Treasury eyes pensions raid, savers unaware premium
Taxes on pension contributions could increase in autumn as part of spending plans being considered by the Treasury. As such, pension savers should act now to reduce the financial impact of a possible stinging, stealthy raid on their pensions. It was announced on Monday by The Daily Telegraph that “well-placed sources” are considering various ways of raising funds to pay for the coronavirus pandemic, and are devising plans to alter the way pension contributions are Read More

NFTs – the next decade’s investment megatrend premium
NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are set to become a crucial part of the tech investment megatrend of the next decade. This is despite declines in recent days of around 80% within the NFT market, from a peak of $102 million in NFT transactions in one day at the beginning of last month. NFTs are digital collectibles encoded onto a blockchain – the technology that underpins cryptocurrencies - that create a unique digital watermark proving ownership and the digital rights to that Read More
