The Market Mogul is a global news outlet that aims to transform how readers think about finance, politics and world economy. Articles are supplied by thought leaders across a broad spectrum of industries.
Market Mogul began with a bit of bootstrapping. Rav Singh Sandhu, an intern for Goldman Sachs, would rise out of bed at 4 am in order to code and write for the site. He would then dash out the door to be at his internship by 6 am. Eventually he made the decision to go full time on the media outlet, spending 18 hours a day developing and growing his site.

Vitalik Buterin, the founder of the groundbreaking Ethereum cryptocurrency, stated in a recent BitNewsToday interview that 90% of token startups will fail. Sounds kind of jaded for a 23 year old, and especially cheeky, when you consider that Bitcoin rocketed to a record $18K this past week.

Today there are hundreds of cryptocurrency coins available and just as many uses, w...
The IoT will integrate into the blockchain, along with the highly beneficial feature of smart contracts, to improve our lives dramatically.
Lantah’s vision is to make these possibilities a reality for you.

If the box was exposed to a heavy impact, the tube would be red in color indicating such an impact occurred and that the contents inside may have been compromised. The company purchasing from the manufacturer had the rig...
In this article, the focus is on types of wallets and how they work. Everyone is different and so you need to pick a wallet, even wallets that fit with your lifestyle.
You will need to consider how you use a wallet. Some of your currencies might be spent for everyday items and services: shopping, yoga class, and even perhaps paying certain types of bills.
