Non-fiat currencies are paving the way, and widening the horizon, might we add, in securing a future founded on the independent non-fiat currency. As you learn about BTC trading accounts, here are a few steps you can follow in bitcoin trading.
Bitcoin Trading Reviewed
Bitcoin trading, as the phrase suggests, is the exchange of bitcoins, from one user to the next. Or to a number of users at any given time. To oversimplify it, it is similar to how conventional trading works. Only, there is no commodity nor “hard money” in the mix. Bitcoins are themselves, the article to and for the exchange.
Understanding Bitcoin Trading
The first thing traders need to have an understanding of is how the price of bitcoins is set. Where does it come from? Is it fixed?
Since we know that cryptocurrencies do not rely on financial institutions, global currencies, or economic movements, we can conclude that they are not vulnerable to governments and economies. The pricing of bitcoin comes from…
There are over 21 million bitcoins all over the world today. Out of this 21 million, around 18.5 million have already been mined. This means that new players in the bitcoin scene will be given a limited amount of 2.5 million left to mine for themselves. Keep in mind that this is a global sum. Once all 21 million have been mined, there will none left in the circulation.
Bitcoin mining is basically a process in which said cryptocurrency (as owned by each user) is put into motion and is made available for trading. More about this, and in detail, on a separate post.
Analysts speculate that the entire supply of this cryptocurrency will be used up come the year 2041. What does this have to do with bitcoin pricing? To put this into perspective, think of the law of supply and demand.
When “supply” decreases and “demand” increases, pricing will be hiked up. And the less supply there is, the higher the skyrocketing of the price will go. Something bitcoin users and traders are already witnessing at present.
***You may be inclined to think that 2041 is two decades away. 20 long years to go. Only, take into consideration that the bitcoin was invented in 2009. And now, less than 10% of its total number remains!
As of current, there are a limited number of channels wherein bitcoins can be utilized for the exchange of commodities and/or services. In the context of integration, we are leaving out “bitcoin exchange” and/or “bitcoin purchasing” out of the picture.
Cryptocurrency is yet to make a stamp in the market as a viable means for supporting daily living. Relying on bitcoins to buy everyday-goods, easily converting them into their actual real-life prices to be stored and or transferred from bank to bank. The list goes on.
All eyes are on non-fiat currencies, especially because worldwide catastrophes have shaken people so that many are scouting for options to secure their financial futures. Bitcoin, being one of the said major options, and the highest of its kind, in-rank.
Remember the year we mentioned earlier? 2041? It is most certainly likely that bitcoin integration will take place any moment, even before that year hits. When the world begins to notice its integration, they will want to buy in.
This, then, ties in with number 2. The more people to buy-in, the higher the price of bitcoins will soar.
Reasons for Choosing Temporary and Permanent Industrial Buildings
Professional temporary solution providers have become very innovative in designing industrial buildings. While temporary industrial structures are made of lighter materials such as aluminum and fabric or PVC covers, permanent solutions are made of steel or metal frames and sheets. All of them require good preparation of the ground, pre-fabrication of the frames and sheets, and proper installation to serve their purpose well.
Most beneficiaries of these structures are processing factories, manufacturing plants, sports clubs, schools, and many other organizations and companies. Choosing temporary and permanent industrial buildings from a reputable supplier has many perks.
So, let us dive into the reasons for choosing temporary and permanent industrial buildings to understand this topic better.
Amazing Speed of Constructions
Bye-bye brick and mortar industrial buildings that are time-consuming. Temporary and permanent industrial buildings are the way to go because they are fast and easy to fabricate and install using modern technology.
According to experts, these structures save a lot of time, especially if the frames and panels are already fabricated in the factory. Companies that need to set up new companies or expand the current ones will have everything ready in a matter of a few weeks.
Excellent Cost Saving
The economy is hard enough and the investor needs to save on capital when setting up companies or doing expansions. The good news is that temporary and permanent industrial buildings save costs by up to 30% when done by a professional company.
Smart-Space is not only innovative in their technology but they save you a lot of money when setting up your industrial structures. You can rent these structures if you only need them for a short time to save more money.
Absolute Flexibility and Versatility
If you are looking for structures that can be moved after a few years, then temporary and permanent industrial buildings are the way to go. As mentioned, they are made of frames and panels that are fastened together using bolts. Hence, they are easy to dismantle and move to a different location.
However, this work should be done by professionals to reduce damage and ensure the safety of the structures at all times.
High Level of Customization
If you are looking for functional sizes and unique designs that will maintain the theme of your company or organization, the temporary and permanent industrial buildings done by experts will be best. After a discussion of what will serve your business well, the solution provider will take a few days to do the designs with your preferred sizes and colors.
Customization also applies during the extension of an existing factory where everything is done to your preference or in the best possible way. To achieve a high level of customization, you should consider experienced solution providers.
Both temporary and permanent industrial buildings are surprisingly durable. Take steel industrial structures for example. They provide service for many years without the need for complicated maintenance. Since steel does not rust, the structure will withstand harsh weather conditions including moisture.
Structures made of metal frames and fabric are equally durable, especially when used as recommended. They also require low maintenance with no paintwork needed after every few years.
The buyers of temporary and permanent industrial buildings enjoy different manufacturer’s warranty benefits. This could be the bought structures or the materials used to make them. What’s more is that many reputable service providers also give warranties on the workmanship, which will save cost when there is a problem.
To enjoy all of these benefits, it is good to buy or lease your temporary and permanent industrial buildings from a reliable and trusted supplier. Well, there are even more benefits that you will realize once you start using these structures. So, make the right choice now.
New ways of thinking and working are necessary to reap blockchain benefits in capital markets
The World Economic Forum today released Digital Assets, Distributed Ledger Technology, and the Future of Capital Markets. Across the capital markets ecosystem, institutions are facing a combination of intensified competitive dynamics and accelerating technology advancements, presenting opportunities and challenges both to incumbents and new entrants. Although DLT is not a panacea, the report underlines how it can positively impact costs, market liquidity and balance sheet capacity while reducing the complexity, opacity and fragmentation of capital markets.
Written in partnership with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the report is based on nearly 200 interviews and eight global workshops with capital market incumbent players, new entrants, regulators and governments. It presents use cases from equity markets, debt markets, securitized products, derivatives, securities financing and asset management.
DLT can address real challenges and inefficiencies in some markets by providing a trusted, shared source of truth between market participants. However, the future is uncertain as there is no agreed path for market-wide adoption. What’s more, as institutions still decide where to invest, varying strategies create tensions.
The report calls for a balance between innovation and market safeguards through standardization, the breaking down of silos and regulatory engagement. According to the authors, fundamentally transforming markets will require new ways of thinking and working across the industry.
“Following several years of intense hype, examples of use cases where inefficiencies and challenges are being solved with blockchain are starting to emerge across capital markets,” said Matthew Blake, Head of the Future of Financial Services, World Economic Forum. “With the future for blockchain in financial services still being defined, a nuanced look at the opportunities this technology offers right now is particularly important for the financial services industry.”
“Distributed ledger technology has come of age as it begins to enhance efficiencies, reduce operating costs and create new business models in capital markets, but the use cases and solutions are respective to each asset class,” said Kaj Burchardi, Managing Director, BCG Platinion. “Whilst this makes sense from a commercial perspective, it has led to a complex patchwork of initiatives. For capital markets to unilaterally adopt DLT, they will require cross-institutional alignment to realize the game-changing market opportunities it can offer.”
Russian Nornickel signed a deal with UK chemicals giant Johnson Matthey
Russian Nornickel, the world’s largest metal producer has signed a deal with Johnson Matthey (JM) on long-term supply of critical metals for their battery materials production in Finland.
The Finnish government is actively developing production sites for battery components. Finnish budget for 2021 includes additional funding of EUR 300 million for Finnish Minerals Group to promote investments for the production of precursor and cathode active materials used in lithium-ion batteries in Finland.
Earlier in April Nornickel announced plans to ramp up sustainable nickel and cobalt production at its refinery in Finland — NN Harjavalta — in response to the growing European demand for high quality and responsibly sourced metals for the EV industry. NN Harjavalta’s product range will be playing an important role in satisfying Johnson Matthey’s requirements for its precursor and cathode active materials production in Finland as well as for its existing factory in Poland.
Johnson Matthey announced the development in Finland of its second commercial plant with a nameplate capacity of 30 kt of ultra-high energy density cathode materials required by EV producers. The factory will be powered solely by renewable energy and incorporate an innovative effluent treatment solution.
Nornickel and Johnson Matthey have also signed a memorandum of understanding to explore options to further extend metal supply in the future. The parties also intend to collaborate in other important parts of the battery materials value chain, including new metal dissolution technology, circular economy opportunities, and tokenization of the supply chain using blockchain technology. Implementation of token-based smart contracts allows combining metal deliveries with complete provenance as well as ESG credentials including carbon footprint to ensure the unprecedented level of responsible sourcing.
The deal will allow the Russian and British company to define joint sustainable development initiatives.
“We are delighted for this opportunity to develop our business together with Johnson Matthey — a new important player in the Finnish battery materials ecosystem — and help the company expand on the European EV market. Our memorandum should enable us to identify mutually beneficial sustainability initiatives that support the ambition of achieving the most sustainable battery materials value chain in Europe,” commented Vladimir Potanin, President of Norilsk Nickel.
Earlier, Norilsk Nickel signed a letter of intent to establish a battery recycling cluster in Harjavalta, Finland, to serve the electric vehicle market in partnership with Finnish energy company Fortum and German world’s leading chemical company BASF. This will successfully complete the “closed loop” recycling cycle for critical metals present in used batteries.
