As I said to Forbes, Nasdaq, Advisorpedia and Zawya, amongst other media, interest in Bitcoin and crypto from institutional investors has soared over the past few months and is only set to Read More
The forecast interest rate hike by the Bank of England to be announced on Thursday is harmful to the economy and is, in effect, a misery rate rise.
The latest decision comes amid skyrocketing prices and indications the UK may face a recession this year.
As the Bank of England took a passive stance for much too long in 2021 as the country was emerging from Covid lockdowns and prices were starting to soar, they now feel the need for an aggressive move on rate hikes.
Yet I Read More
Regulation of the crypto market has taken a crucial move forward following comments made earlier this week by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Gary Gensler.
