Why AMP is a threat to the Open Web

What is AMP?
AMP is an open-source web component framework developed by the AMP Open Source Project, first announced by Google in 2015 as a reaction to Facebook’s Instant Articles and Apple News. While it was originally aimed at accelerating mobile pages (hence AMP), it’s now a much broader project aimed at improving the UX of websites, stories, ads and mail. The AMP framework consists of three components: AMP HTML, which is standard HTML markup with web components; AMP JavaScript, which manages resource loading; and AMP caches, which serves and validates AMP pages.
In plain English: AMP is Google’s attempt at making pages (and more) faster. They did a good job, pages built with the AMP framework will normally load faster. However, as this article explains, you won’t notice much of a difference unless the AMP library is served using the AMP cache, but more on that later.
The controversies with cached AMP pages
The AMP format is itself not much of a problem. In fact, we should applaud search engines that give ranking preference to fast-loading pages like AMP, but four aspects of its implementation are flawed:
  1. Google mobile Search’s Top Stories carousel has a premium position above of all other results, which is only accessible for AMP pages. These pages have to use a technology that was build and maintained mostly by Google (of the top 10 contributors to the AMP project on GitHub, 9 are Google employees), are then served by Google from their infrastructure and placed within a Google controlled user experience. And since this carousel generates a lot of clicks and revenue, publishers are left no choice but to embrace AMP. This has the effect of further reinforcing Google’s dominance of the Web. Fortunately, Google has announced that it's working on opening up the Top Stories carousel to non-AMP pages in 2021.
  2. The biggest performance boost doesn’t come from the AMP framework, but from preloading the page. It begs the question: Should preloading really be exclusive to AMP? They could introduce a way for publishers to allow or disallow preloading and if Google sees fit, they could preload those pages too, alongside AMP.
  3. When a user navigates from Google to a piece of content Google has recommended (or when a user clicks on a shared cached AMP link), they are, unwittingly, remaining within Google’s ecosystem and the publisher’s domain is obscured by the google.com/amp prefix. To work around this Google introduced Signed HTTP Exchanges ([Draft], [1], [2]), a web-standard that allows the browser to display the original site's URL, instead of the actual one (the one with the google.com/prefix). This would solve the original issue, but while doing so it introduced new ones (e.g. it obfuscates the fact that they're delivering the AMP page you're visiting). Interestingly enough, Google's Chrome already has support for this technology, but parties not involved with AMP are not so enthusiastic: Mozilla has deemed it a harmful web standard [2], and Apple has taken a similar stance.
  4. Google’s entire business model is about collecting as much personal data as possible, AMP is just another tool to do so. As described in Google’s Support article:
“When you use the Google AMP Viewer, Google and the publisher that made the AMP page may each collect data about you.”
The controversies with non-cached AMP pages
To be clear, the above flaws are only with AMP pages cached by Google (or another party like Bing or Cloudflare) but there are also plenty of pages simply utilizing the AMP framework, recognized by URLs such as bbc.com/news/amp/. However, these are also problematic, mainly because there's only a small performance improvement when AMP pages aren't cached and AMP pages tend to be less feature-rich and less diverse than their originals. And in some edge cases, it breaks stuff.
One could argue that the more popular the AMP framework becomes, the more AMP threatens the open web. That said, it should be clear that the biggest problem lies with the cached AMP pages.
AMP is open source, but that doesn't make it holy. Or as Ferdy Christant puts it quite nicely in his blog:
Google’s main defense is that AMP is open source. Which isn’t just a weak defense, it’s no defense at all. I can open source a plan for genocide. The term “open source” is meaningless if the thing that is open source is harmful.
Just so we’re clear, I’m not claiming Google or the AMP project is evil (hell, they might even have good intentions!), but the fact is that AMP and it's implementation have some major flaws that threaten the Open Web. And as long as that's the case, AmputatorBot will be there to remove AMP from your URLs.

NordVPN Review - Honest Review

EDIT: Nord is having a 75% off sale AND All plans have 30-day money-back guarantee You can claim that deal by using our special link! @ www.buy-nord.com
NordVPN has been growing at a very fast pace since launching in 2012, and it’s now one of the largest VPN services on the market with over 12 million customers worldwide (according to NordVPN themselves).
NordVPN has grown so much that it now claims to be the “best VPN service provider of 2019” but we all know that’s easier said than done, right?
We needed to understand how good NordVPN really is and answer questions our readers have been asking us:
But before we dive into it, let's take a quick look at NordVPN’s pros and cons:
Pros
Cons
Works with
Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Sky, HBO, Torrenting, Kodi
Available on
Windows Mac Ios Android Linux Price from
$2.99/mo
Still, want to know more about NordVPN and whether it’s the right VPN for you?
We’ve carefully tested every single NordVPN app so you can rest assured that we left no stone unturned.
Without further ado, let's get right into this review starting with NordVPN’s speed.
Speed & Reliability Very fast speeds across the world
NordVPN is a very fast VPN – as long as you connect to nearby VPN servers.
It’s not the fastest VPN there is (these VPNs are currently faster), but NordVPN is still very quick and you won’t experience any speed issues.
Both same-country (UK server to UK server) download and upload speeds are impressive, with minimal internet slowdown (around a 5-6% drop from our normal internet speeds).
This makes NordVPN a very good choice for both streaming fans and torrenters.
Speed results from our physical location in London (100Mbps fibre optic connection) to a London test server.
Before using NordVPN:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 94.83
UPLOAD Mbps 91.8
PING ms 3
When connected to NordVPN:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 90.51
UPLOAD Mbps 86.28
PING ms 5
Download speed without NordVPN: 94.83Mbps
Download speed with NordVPN: 90.51Mbps
Our download speed loss when NordVPN is running: 5%
As you can see, NordVPN registered very impressive speeds when we connected to a nearby VPN server. It’s less impressive – but still very usable – over long-distance connections, though.
Here are the average download and upload speeds connecting out from the UK to NordVPN’s servers:
USA: 47Mbps (download) & 48Mbps (upload) Germany: 78Mbps (download) & 77Mbps (upload) Singapore: 17Mbps (download) & 6Mbps (upload) Australia: 22Mbps (download) & 3Mbps (upload) Ping times are also fairly low on most of NordVPN’s servers, which is good for gaming although there are better VPNs available to gamers.
Server Locations Over 5,600 VPN servers spread across 60 countries worldwide
Globe with a blue flag 60 Countries Image of a city landscape 90+ Cities Image of a pink marker 5,600+ IP Addresses See all Server Locations NordVPN’s server list covers 60 countries – it isn’t the widest VPN server range we’ve seen, but it should almost certainly ensure there is a server located near you.
Screenshot of NordVPN Server List in App
NordVPN provides a whopping 5,600 VPN servers, none of which are virtual, with each server given a static IP address. This is the highest number of VPN servers provided by a top VPN service, which is impressive. Even better, NordVPN owns all of the servers in its network.
NordVPN’s server network covers all of the popular server locations such as the UK, the US, Australia, and Canada, as well as less common locations including Argentina, Egypt, and Albania.
NordVPN provides city-level server choices in five different countries, too:
Australia (five locations, 200+ servers) Canada (three locations, 400+ servers) Germany (two locations, 200+ servers) India (two locations, 20+ servers) The US (20 locations, 1,800+ servers) NordVPN used to offer city-level choice in the UK (London and Manchester) but recently removed the Manchester VPN servers as “their performance was lacking.” NordVPN have added even more servers in London in order to ensure the best speeds for those located in the UK.
Streaming & Torrenting An excellent choice for streaming & torrenting
Thanks to its SmartPlay technology, NordVPN consistently works with popular streaming services like Netflix and BBC iPlayer.
To watch Netflix, simply click on the US or UK VPN country server and the NordVPN app will automatically find the best option for you.
NordVPN also unlocks loads more Netflix libraries, including Canada, Japan, France, Italy, and Germany.
Not all of NordVPN’s UK servers provide access to BBC iPlayer, but a quick message to live chat will let you know which ones are currently working.
That will save you the trial-and-error of testing out all of NordVPN’s hundreds of UK servers. This is a big plus, as many other VPN providers can’t unlock BBC iPlayer.
Unrestricted access to streaming services doesn’t stop there. Many of NordVPN’s customers use the VPN service to stream:
Amazon Prime Video Hulu HBO Sling TV Sky Now TV Torrenting Torrenting (and other P2P traffic) isn’t allowed on every single NordVPN server, but there’s still more than enough server choice to keep torrenters and Kodi streamers happy.
You can torrent while connected to almost every country on NordVPN’s server list – these are listed under ‘Speciality Servers’ within in the app settings.
However, the following countries do not permit P2P:
Argentina Costa Rica Chile Cyrpus Egypt Georgia Indonesia Malaysia South Korea Taiwan Thailand Vietnam Ukraine United Arab Emirates If you attempt to torrent while connected to a VPN server that doesn’t support P2P NordVPN will simply re-route your traffic through a dedicated server located in either Canada or the Netherlands.
With plenty of added security features – such as its VPN kill switch – and a no-logs policy, NordVPN is without a doubt one of the safest VPNs for torrenting. Fast uploads and downloads make it a great choice too.
Bypassing Censorship Obfuscated VPN servers work in China intermittently
Since the VPN crackdown in China, NordVPN has become a little less reliable for residents or visitors in China, but it’s still a pretty good choice of VPN.
Users have reported that NordVPN’s obfuscated servers often bypass the Chinese censors, but others have experienced difficulties connecting to them.
NordVPN’s obfuscated servers are spread out fairly evenly, with options in North America, North Africa, Asia, and Europe, so you shouldn’t be too far away from one.
There are no obfuscated VPN servers available on the NordVPN iOS app, though, so iPhone users may struggle to connect from China without some manual configuration.
See our latest VPN recommendations if you’re looking for a reliable VPN for China, or you can read our ExpressVPN review or our VyprVPN review, two of our top choices.
That’s just China, though – in other high censorship countries like Saudi Arabia and Russia NordVPN remains a solid VPN choice to bypass censorship.
Platforms & Devices Protect all your devices with a wide range of custom VPN apps
Apps Windows Logo Windows Mac Logo Mac iOS Logo iOS Android Logo Android Linux Logo Linux Router Logo Router NordVPN has simple native VPN apps for all major operating systems:
Windows macOS iOS Android Linux (yes, even Linux) If your device is not compatible with the custom apps above, you can also install NordVPN on your router.
What’s more, you can use NordVPN on up to six devices at the same time using just one VPN subscription, which is one of the highest allowances we’ve seen.
Games Consoles & Streaming Devices AppleTV Logo AppleTV Amazon Fire TV Logo Amazon Fire TV Chromecast Logo Chromecast Nintendo Logo Nintendo PlayStation Logo PlayStation Roku Logo Roku Xbox Logo Xbox NordVPN has an Android TV app, meaning you can use the VPN app with streaming devices such as Android TV and the Amazon Fire TV Stick without any manual configuration.
In fact, NordVPN is one of the best VPNs for the Fire TV although it is not our top recommendation. If you own a Firestick and want to use a VPN app with it, take a look at our roundup of the best VPNs for Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
If you want to run NordVPN on your other streaming devices or games consoles like Xbox and PlayStation, though, you’ll need to install it at router level. It’s not too difficult and it means that all devices connected to the router will be protected.
Browser Extensions Chrome Logo Chrome Firefox Logo Firefox NordVPN provides VPN extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
These VPN add-ons encrypt your browser traffic, but protection ends there so we always suggest using NordVPN’s extensions in conjunction with the main VPN application or client.
The extensions also have an in-built WebRTC leak blocker, which is an extremely useful bonus.
NordVPN doesn’t yet have VPN extensions for Safari or Opera browsers.
Encryption & Security Secure VPN with advanced features but lacking protocol flexibility
Protocol IKEv2/IPSec
OpenVPN (TCP/UDP)
WireGuard
Encryption AES-256
Security DNS Leak Blocking
First-party DNS
Supports TCP Port 443
VPN Kill Switch
WebRTC Leak Blocking
Advanced features Double VPN
TOR via VPN Server
Please see our VPN Glossary if these terms confuse you and would like to learn more.
NordVPN has only one choice of VPN protocol by default, but it’s our personal favourite: OpenVPN. The iOS and macOS apps (available to download directly from the Apple App Store) run on IKEv2, though.
OpenVPN provides the perfect blend of speed and security. It encrypts all your internet traffic using the ‘unhackable’ AES-256 cypher.
Screenshot of NordVPN Settings Menu in App
You can also use IKEv2 with NordVPN’s Windows and Android apps if you like, but it requires an extra download and a lot of advanced setup (manual configuration).
The VPN kill switch feature protects your IP address in the event of a connection drop, and NordVPN’s privately owned and operated DNS servers ensure end-to-end protection.
NordVPN provides Double VPN (multi-hop) and Tor over VPN (Onion over VPN) for extra encryption.
As with all the VPN providers we review, we carried out extensive testing to find IP and DNS leaks when using NordVPN and we are happy to report that we found no leaks whatsoever.
Screenshot of browserleaks.com test results for NordVPN Leak test results on browserleaks.com while connected to a NordVPN US server. We test from the UK.
NordVPN has recently released a new technology for Linux users called NordLynx that’s based on the WireGuard VPN protocol.
WireGuard is a new VPN protocol that aims to be faster and more secure than the current standards, but it’s still in development so should be considered experimental at this point.
Logging Policy No-logs VPN in a privacy-friendly jurisdiction
NordVPN doesn’t log your traffic or store any user logs, making it a safe and trustworthy VPN.
Here’s a comprehensive list of all the information it does collect:
Server loads That is the full extent of the information NordVPN collects, making it a true no-logs VPN. Server loads are monitored to maintain the optimal performance of VPN servers for users, and nothing else.
Your privacy is upheld above all else, and NordVPN absolutely will not sell your personal data to any third parties.
Jurisdiction NordVPN was founded in 2012 is operated by Tefincom & Co S.A. which is headquartered under the legal jurisdiction of Panama, putting it beyond the reach of US and EU data retention laws.
Panama does not require VPN companies to store or report any of their data, nor is it part of any agreements that compel it to share information with other countries.
Being based in Panama gives NordVPN the power to deny any third-party data requests, so there is absolutely no way that any of your online activity can be traced back to you.
In 2018, NordVPN came under some heat as it was accused of not being headquartered in Panama. The reason for the controversy is that when you purchased NordVPN on Google Play Store, at the time the Seller of NordVPN was listed as CloudVPN INC. (a company registered in the US), and not Tefincom & Co S.A.
It turns out that CloudVPN INC. is a payment processor and NordVPN was simply using it to handle payments, similarly to how other VPN providers use payment processing companies to manage these type of transactions.
Ease of Use Quick and easy setup with simple custom apps
How to Install & Set Up NordVPN Screenshot of NordVPN Download Button Downloading the software is as simple as going to Nord's website and clicking the download button for the appropriate platform.
Screenshot of NordVPN Installation Progress You can check the progress of your installation here, which usually only takes a couple of minutes at most.
Screenshot of NordVPN App Login Screen Once the software is installed, all that's left to do is log into the app and you're ready to go.
Screenshot of NordVPN Desktop App Main Screen The main NordVPN app view with server locations to the left, which are also presented as pins on the map.
Screenshot of NordVPN Specialty Servers On the left-hand side of the app, you can see the full list of server locations and speciality servers for P2P, Double VPN, etc.
Screenshot of NordVPN City-Level Servers Hover over a country name and click on the three horizontal dots that appear in order to select a city-level server.
Screenshot of NordVPN Connected Screen You will know when NordVPN is working because the server location you are connected to and your new IP address will be displayed at the bottom of the app.
Screenshot of NordVPN General App Settings You can find the general settings by clicking 'Settings' at the top of the app. These consist of simple toggles for general settings, including the VPN kill switch.
Screenshot of NordVPN Advanced App Settings Scroll down to the bottom of the settings menu to find the advanced options. After confirming that you know what you're doing, you can toggle between TCP/UDP and use obfuscated servers.
The NordVPN website has comprehensive VPN setup guides for whatever platform you happen to be using, but it’s unlikely you’ll ever need them.
All of NordVPN’s custom VPN apps run smoothly and are almost entirely self-explanatory.
If you want to play around with advanced settings then you’re welcome to do that too – they’re clearly labelled and the app even warns you not to do so unless you know what you’re doing.
Browser Extensions Screenshot of NordVPN Chrome Extension
It couldn’t be much easier to set up NordVPN’s browser extensions – just go to the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox store and download the add-on to your browser.
Once you’ve logged on you can choose a server and connect. We’d recommend enabling ‘Block WebRTC’ from the settings menu to prevent any potential IP leaks.
Customer Support Helpful live chat support & useful online resources
24/7 Live chat support Online Resources NordVPN provides excellent quality customer support both through its extensive knowledge base and via online live chat.
Email support isn’t as good and we’ve found responses to be slow at times. There is really no reason to email customer support, though, as NordVPN’s live chat service is 24/7.
Encounter any issues? NordVPN running slow, perhaps? No problem – support agents respond quickly and are extremely friendly and helpful, managing to fix most of our VPN issues within a couple of minutes.
NordVPN’s troubleshooting guides are very useful, too, covering a variety of potential VPN issues and providing a range of possible solutions.

An Eventful Year: Over 75 days of NEO Meetups, Workshops and Hackathons in 2018

NEO has been very busy this year. In addition to the core development progress, we’ve seen a level of community building/outreach that no other project in blockchain can seem to match. I thought it would be cool to look back on all the events and hackathons that NEO hosted or supported over the course of this year.
It should be noted that I am not including any large-scale blockchain conferences (other than the NEO DevCon), no matter how notable. Any project leader can show up to an event and hold a few interviews, or offer a few sound bites in a speech. This is a post about the NEO team’s tangible efforts to finance and encourage decentralized community development by hosting dedicated NEO workshops and meetups around the world. To this end, I have attempted (no promises, this was a lot of data to go through) to omit all events without direct support/representatives from the NEO core team (sorry Dylan, I’ll buy you a beer at DevCon!)
I think this is a huge indicator as to the motives of the core NEO team and is something far too few people know about. There is still this ridiculous notion floating around that NEO is reliant on the Chinese government to succeed, despite the massive global community that has been built to support the platform’s long-term success.
Two things to note before the list. Firstly, a lot of these events would not have been possible without the hard work of various NEO dApp project/dev community leaders and other community members. By no means do I wish to undermine their contributions by giving full credit to the NEO core. A lot of people pitched in to make these things happen.
Secondly, I’d also like to give a huge shout out to NEO News Today for its consistent and excellent coverage of all news within the NEO ecosystem. This list would not have been possible without it. For those of you who do not know, I started writing for NNT in July and joined as an editor in October. I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to work with such a kind and talented group of individuals. I have much to learn from each of them.
Without further ado, here’s the list.

That’s over 75 days of NEO events this year (and I definitely missed some). Not bad eh. Of course, this is only a list of events. We’ve also seen solid progress on the core infrastructure, the formation of multiple new dev communities, and various impressive projects joining the network.
This is the reality of what progress towards decentralization looks like. The NEO community outreach has gone far above and beyond what any other blockchain project has achieved (to my knowledge). Sure, there’s value to a pile of partnerships, but do not mistake those partnerships for realistic progression towards the future of blockchain. The goal of blockchain is to put power back into the hands of the people and to hand off control of these platforms to their respective communities. It seems no project is prioritizing this on the same level as NEO.
At this point, it feels like it wouldn’t particularly matter what happens in China. The NEO team and broader community have spent vast amounts of time and resources educating developers about NEO. Progress on this platform is not tied to the core team. That is the heart of decentralization, and it is why NEO will not be easily stopped.

Lumenette – Out of beta and ready to bring new users to the Stellar Network! Race to 10 PROMO!

Hello Stellar community!

The Lumenette mobile wallet (Android Play Store; iOS Test Flight) is now out of beta! We will be switching from iOS Test Flight to Enterprise distribution in next week or so. iOS users can access Lumenette at: https://www.lumenette.com/download
To celebrate, we are running a Race to 10 promo. Scroll for details.

Lumenette

Lumenette allows users to send Lumens to anyone on their personal contact list via phone/email, whether they have heard of Stellar or not. We are aiming to be Venmo for crypto - a user friendly, multi-asset wallet, powered by the Stellar network.
We hope that the ability to transfer to anyone on your phone's contact list exponentially increases the number of people you can send Lumen to. This is why we built it! Previously 0 of my contacts had heard of Stellar. Now, I have sent XLM to over 1/2 of my total phone contacts.
Since we built Lumenette with the goal of reaching new users (who likely have a lot of questions on what exactly Stellar is!), we included comprehensive FAQs, and ease users into crypto with a familiar, Venmo-like interface (less 'techy' than other wallets, we think).
We also strongly focused on appealing to existing users by prioritizing features that the Stellar community wants.

Race to 10 / Share Stellar Promo!

Since the point of Lumenette is to send lumen to people who do not have it, we decided to run a promotion to encourage sending Lumen to your friends.
The first 5 Lumenette users to transfer XLM to 10 new users (and who all complete the sign up) will win lumen prizes! Important: Whoever you invite must complete the sign up in order to count in the promotion! To be eligible, you will need to post when you finish with your public key so Lumenette can verify.
Prizes! * 1st Place: 250 XLM + transfer reimbursement* * 2nd-5th Place: 100 XLM + transfer reimbursement*
*Transfer reimbursement up to 50XLM total, for total max prize of 300 and 150 XLM for winners.
This promotion is available until Thursday, May 3rd 2018 at 7 PM ET.

International

Finally, we intend to conduct business in compliance with all relevant regulations. Therefore, we are only available for use in the following countries:
Supported countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Uganda, United States, Portugal, Slovakia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Luxembourg, Malta, Romania, Slovenia, Serbia.

April 27th, 2018 Update to include more supported countries:

Portugal, Slovakia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Luxembourg, Malta, Romania, Slovenia, Serbia.
If your country is not on this list, we apologize and hope to be able to reach you in the future, as legislation in this space is constantly shifting.

Thanks!

We value the requests of the Stellar community, and are eager to implement additional features that are desired. We are working on a lot of things for the future, and if you find any issues, please let us know!
We want to thank everyone who has given us feedback on Galactic Talk and Keybase (in particular, thanks cryptobrant!). Feel free to follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest updates. iOS users can access Lumenette at: https://www.lumenette.com/download

Localbitcoins Volume Analysis Shows Countries Where Fiat is Hyperinflationary, Bitcoin Gaining Traction

Localbitcoins Volume Analysis Shows Countries Where Fiat is Hyperinflationary, Bitcoin Gaining Traction

https://preview.redd.it/56tmi00dnn621.png?width=690&format=png&auto=webp&s=491b244f26c753ded60486a31f532c434bd1587f
https://cryptoiq.co/localbitcoins-volume-analysis-shows-countries-where-fiat-is-hyperinflationary-bitcoin-gaining-traction/
Localbitcoins is the longest running and most popular peer to peer Bitcoin exchange in the world, with trading volume increasing from less than $100,000 per week in 2012 to over $50 million per week currently.
On Localbitcoins, buyers and sellers complete deals directly with each other, using the full spectrum of fiat payment methods, ranging from bank transfers to gift cards.
Here, we’ll discuss countries with rapidly increasing Localbitcoins trading volume. These are usually countries undergoing a fiat inflation crisis or countries which have enacted severe regulations on Bitcoin trading leaving peer to peer trading as the only option.
It is good to first look at Localbitcoins trading volume in the United States before identifying countries without of the ordinary volume trends. Bitcoin is legal in the United States, and the United States perhaps has the lowest fiat inflation rate in the world at 2-3 percent since the USD is the underpinning of the global fiat currency system. The trading volume on Localbitcoins in the United States gradually increased to $10 million per week during the peak of the December 2017 Bitcoin rally and has since then leveled off to $6 million per week.
Countries with relatively stable fiat currencies follow this trend of an all-time volume high during the peak of the 2017 Bitcoin rally, followed by a gradual decline during the 2018 bear market. This includes Australia, Canada, the European Union, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
South America Seeing Rapid Increase in Peer to Peer Bitcoin Trading
South American countries that where people use Localbitcoins are seeing rapidly increasing volume throughout 2018 despite the bear market, and this appears to be due to a continent-wide fiat inflation crisis.
In Argentina, Localbitcoins trading volume has rallied from ARS 1 million to ARS 9 million since the beginning of 2017. The Argentinian Peso (ARS) has simultaneously experienced 140 percent inflation relative to the USD. The hyperinflation of the ARS itself does not yield the 9X increase in Localbitcoins trading volume, so clearly, the actual amount of peer to peer Bitcoin trading in Argentina is also rapidly increasing thanks to fiat hyperinflation.
Venezuela is experiencing the most well-known hyperinflation crisis in the world right now, with the inflation rate in excess of 400,000 percent according to the Cafe Con Leche Index, and a total collapse of the Sovereign Bolivar (VES) seeming imminent.
Localbitcoins trading volume in Venezuela is exponentially increasing, from VES 8,000 at the beginning of 2017 to VES 3.8 billion currently. It is likely that a large part of this volume rally can be explained by cryptocurrency adoption proliferating across Venezuela, as its citizens move their money into cryptocurrency in order to protect themselves against catastrophic hyperinflationary conditions. The Localbitcoins trading volume in Venezuela in terms of Bitcoin confirms this, with volume increasing from 274 Bitcoins at the beginning of 2017 to 1,743 Bitcoins currently.
Chile is also seeing a steady rise in Localbitcoins trading volume in terms of the native fiat currency the Chilean Peso (CLP). During the peak of the 2017 Bitcoin rally volume reached CLP 213 million per week, and in November 2018 trading volume was as high as CLP 243 million. Since April 2018 the CLP has had 19 percent inflation relative to the USD. In 2016 and 2017, the CLP was actually strengthening relative to the USD, so the inflation trend in Chile is relatively new.
Colombia has seen Localbitcoins trading volume rapidly increase from COP 230 million at the beginning of 2017 to COP 8.13 billion per week in November 2018. Simultaneously, there has been 13 percent inflation of the Colombian Peso (COP) relative to the USD since the beginning of 2017.
Actual Bitcoin volume has surged from less than 100 Bitcoins per week at the beginning of 2018 to more than 650 currently. Since Colombia is the next-door neighbor of Venezuela, perhaps this surge in Localbitcoins volume has something to do with Venezuelans obtaining the Bitcoins they need in Colombia.
In Peru, Localbitcoins weekly trading volume has steadily increased from PEN 60,000 at the beginning of 2017 to as high as PEN 3.145 million in November 2018. Simultaneously, Bitcoin volume has surged from less than 20 Bitcoins per week to 236 Bitcoins. The Peruvian Sol (PEN) has seen 10 percent inflation relative to the USD during 2018.
Overall, it is clear that fiat inflation in South America is not confined to Venezuela. Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Peru are also experiencing fiat inflation and a major uptick in Bitcoin adoption. Thanks to this, it appears that South America will be a hotspot for cryptocurrency adoption in the coming years.
India Peer to Peer Bitcoin Trading Surges Due to Ban of Centralized Exchanges
The Indian Rupee (INR) has had 11 percent inflation relative to the USD since the beginning of 2018. The bigger story in India regarding Bitcoin is that the Reserve Bank of India has banned the use of bank accounts for Bitcoin activity, which has effectively banned centralized Bitcoin exchanges. This has caused a steady increase in peer to peer Bitcoin trading on Localbitcoins, which is still legal, from INR 48 million per week in May 2018 to as high as INR 122 million during November. There is some speculation that India will make Bitcoin completely illegal like its neighbor Pakistan.
Iran Sanctions Cause Peer to Peer Bitcoin Trading to Spike
Crippling international sanctions on Iran were announced in September 2018 and implemented by November in response to Iran breaking its nuclear treaty. The Iranian Rial (IRR) experienced 430 percent inflation relative to the USD, going from IRR 36,000 per USD at the beginning of 2018 to IRR 190,000 per USD by September. However, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ordered that everything must be done to strengthen the IRR, and the free market ended at that point. Currency traders have been executed, making the living ones scared to bid the IRR lower, and Bitcoin has been made illegal to prevent outflows of capital. Localbitcoins trading volume spiked during the September 2018 hyperinflation crisis but is currently falling quickly due to the risks associated with trading Bitcoin in Iran.
Russia and Kazakhstan Have Rising Bitcoin Trading as Fiats Experience Inflation
Russia certainly had a trading volume spike on Localbitcoins during the peak of the 2017 Bitcoin rally, but in general, volume is consistently rising from Russian Ruble (RUB) 750 million per week in April 2018 to RUB 1 billion per week currently. This coincides with 21 percent inflation of the RUB relative to the USD during the same period of time.
Russia’s neighbor to the south, and former part of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, Kazakhstan, is also seeing consistently high Localbitcoins trading volume during 2018. The Kazakhstani Tenge (KZT) has seen 17 percent inflation since April 2018 relative to the USD.
Localbitcoins trading volume data shows that peer to peer Bitcoin trading is increasing worldwide in several countries even during the 2018 Bitcoin bear market, and this is often associated with fiat hyperinflation.
In general, it is thought that if hyperinflation were to become a problem in the United States and the European Union, Bitcoin would have a chance to become the primary global currency. The hyperinflation crisis being observed in several countries worldwide provides a glimpse of what the transition from fiat to Bitcoin may look like. In some countries there is a ‘smooth’ transition, with Bitcoin volume rising as fiat collapses, while other countries experience a rough transition in which Bitcoin is made illegal, making it hard to measure Bitcoin adoption on the ground.

PrivateVPN Review - A real shocker

PrivateVPN doesn’t shy away from talking itself up on its website. It makes a whole bunch of bold claims, such as it being the “fastest growing VPN worldwide”.
PrivateVPN also promises to “unlock anything, protect everything” – that’s just what we like to see from a VPN service, but can it possibly deliver on such strong claims?
We put PrivateVPN to the test hoping to answer that question, plus:
Does PrivateVPN work with Netflix? Where is PrivateVPN located? Does PrivateVPN work in China? What is Stealth VPN? And, of course, is PrivateVPN any good? Our unbiased and in-depth review will explain all, but if you’re in a rush you can find our key takeaways just below. Pros Consistently fast speeds No logging & no IP, DNS & WebRTC leaks Works with Netflix, BBC iPlayer & more Torrenting/P2P allowed on all VPN servers Choose from VPN servers in 59 countries User-friendly apps for PC, Mac, iOS, & Android Cons Small number of individual VPN servers No browser VPN extensions No native app for Linux Live chat not always available Works with
Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Sky, HBO, Torrenting, Kodi
Available on
Windows Mac Ios Android Linux Price from
$2.88/mo
PrivateVPN is one of the best VPNs on the market, there’s no doubt about it. It’s fast, safe and tantalizingly cheap – but it’s not without its flaws. Read on to find out just what to look out for.
Speed & Reliability Very fast speeds across the server network
PrivateVPN provides consistently fast speeds across its VPN server network. Reliably quick uploads and downloads are ideal for both secure torrenting and buffer-free streaming.
Connecting to a same-country server (UK to UK), PrivateVPN only slowed our internet connection down by about 7%.
PrivateVPN is one of the fastest VPNs available – if speed is what you want then it’s a serious contender.
Speed results from our physical location in London (100Mbps fibre optic connection) to a London test server.
Before using PrivateVPN:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 92.94
UPLOAD Mbps 97.54
PING ms 3
When connected to PrivateVPN:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 86.7
UPLOAD Mbps 88.94
PING ms 5
Download speed without PrivateVPN: 92.94Mbps
Download speed with PrivateVPN: 86.70Mbps
Our download speed loss when PrivateVPN is running: 7%
Ping times are low (great for gamers) and upload speeds are high (great for torrenters).
Even across international connections, such as the UK to the US, PrivateVPN is pretty speedy – you’ll be able to do pretty much anything online without breaking a sweat.
Take a look at the average download and upload speeds we recorded connecting out from the UK to PrivateVPN’s servers:
USA: 63Mbps (download) & 25Mbps (upload) Germany: 86Mbps (download) & 56Mbps (upload) Singapore: 32Mbps (download) & 15Mbps (upload) Australia: 18Mbps (download) & 13Mbps (upload) Server Locations Just 150 VPN servers cover 59 countries
Globe with a blue flag 59 Countries Image of a city landscape 75 Cities Image of a pink marker 7,000+ IP Addresses See all Server Locations PrivateVPN’s array of locations (59 countries) and VPN servers is nowhere near the highest we’ve seen, but it’s not as poor as it may first look.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN's beta server list
PrivateVPN offers more than 7,000 individual IP addresses so, despite maintaining just the 150 or so VPN servers, you shouldn’t have to worry about facing congestion or slowdown.
Those 150 VPN servers also do a pretty good job of providing worldwide coverage. There are servers in popular locations like the US, Canada, Australia, and loads of countries in Western Europe, but PrivateVPN also provides plenty of choice in South America and Asia-Pacific.
Those in South and Central America can connect to VPN servers in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Panama.
While Asia has VPN servers in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Israel, India, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, and the United Arab Emirates.
Disappointingly, Africa is covered by South Africa alone.
PrivateVPN provides city-level choice in eight countries, which is great for experiencing the best speeds:
Australia (2) Canada (2) India (2) Italy (2) Sweden (3) the UK (2) Ukraine (2) the US (9) PrivateVPN uses a mix of physical servers and virtual servers. It owns some of its servers and leases others. While this isn’t ideal, PrivateVPN ensures that those leased servers are not keeping user logs by setting them up themselves and monitoring the servers remotely.
Streaming & Torrenting Works reliably with Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Hulu, and more
PrivateVPN is one of the absolute best VPNs for streaming.
PrivateVPN makes streaming easy by organizing its locations list into servers optimized for accessing certain streaming services like Netflix and BBC iPlayer.
PrivateVPN also has dedicated VPN servers for 18 other streaming channels including:
Amazon Prime ESPN HBO Hulu Sky Torrenting PrivateVPN is a great VPN for torrenting, with P2P allowed on all servers, but there are special servers in 17 countries optimized for that purpose too. You can find these servers under ‘Dedicated IP/Torrent’ within the ‘By Service’ servers list.
PrivateVPN is one of the safest choices for torrenting due to its no-logs policy, host of security features, and fast uploads and downloads.
PrivateVPN is ideal for Kodi, too.
Bypassing Censorship Works reliably in China thanks to Stealth VPN protocol
PrivateVPN is a good VPN for China.
Its advanced privacy tools and Stealth VPN protocol, which hides the fact you’re using a VPN, meaning that PrivateVPN is one of our most reliable VPN choices for China – or for bypassing censorship in any other country, for that matter.
Thanks to the Stealth VPN feature, you can use PrivateVPN in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey too. With plenty of servers in Asia, speeds should remain fast.
PrivateVPN also provides Tor over VPN if you’re looking for an extra layer of security.
Platforms & Devices Simple custom VPN apps for the main platforms
Apps Windows Logo Windows Mac Logo Mac iOS Logo iOS Android Logo Android Linux Logo Linux Router Logo Router PrivateVPN has custom VPN apps for the most popular platforms, including:
Microsoft Windows Apple MacOS iOS Android For any other platforms, like Linux, there are plenty of manual setup guides online to help you through it.
You can connect up to six devices at the same time, which makes PrivateVPN a good choice for those who want to protect not only their devices but their family’s too.
Games Consoles & Streaming Devices AppleTV Logo AppleTV Amazon Fire TV Logo Amazon Fire TV Chromecast Logo Chromecast Nintendo Logo Nintendo PlayStation Logo PlayStation Roku Logo Roku Xbox Logo Xbox On top of custom apps for the four most popular platforms, PrivateVPN provides solutions for smart TVs too.
PrivateVPN is one of very few providers to offer a dedicated VPN app for the Amazon Fire TV Stick, meaning all you have to do is download the app from the store and you’re ready to go.
In order to protect games consoles or any other streaming device, you’ll need to connect them to a configured router or another device running the PrivateVPN app, such as a laptop or smartphone.
Browser Extensions Unlike the majority of our other top-ranking VPNs, PrivateVPN has no browser extensions. This means that there are no add-ons for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or Safari.
ExpressVPN, for example, provides full-featured VPN extensions for the most popular web browsers. VPN browsers tend to come with added WebRTC leak protection, but thankfully we didn’t experience any leaks during our PrivateVPN tests.
Encryption & Security Very secure VPN with plenty of configurable options
Protocol IKEv2/IPSec
L2TP/IPSec
OpenVPN (TCP/UDP)
PPTP
Encryption AES-256
Security DNS Leak Blocking
First-party DNS
IPV6 Leak Blocking
Supports TCP Port 443
VPN Kill Switch
Advanced features SOCKS
TOR via VPN Server
Please see our VPN Glossary if these terms confuse you and would like to learn more.
It’s not just a name – PrivateVPN really is a truly secure and safe VPN, with lots of advanced features in place to make sure your data and browsing habits are kept as private as possible.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Settings Menu in App
PrivateVPN provides near-uncrackable AES-256 encryption, the OpenVPN protocol – our personal favorite, and DNS servers operated by PrivateVPN so that your traffic doesn’t take any unexpected diversions.
You can choose to connect using other VPN protocols (PPTP and L2TP) but we don’t recommend them as they don’t provide the same level of security. In fact, PPTP is unsafe to use.
PrivateVPN has a VPN kill switch for Windows to keep you safe if your connection drops, but it’s missing for MacOS and mobile devices, which is disappointing.
Our thorough VPN testing detected no DNS or IPv6 leaks, and you can also use Tor over VPN or TCP Port 443 for even greater security.

Logging Policy Strict zero-logging policy mitigates EU jurisdiction
A VPN can’t truly be private unless it has a top-notch, robust logging policy. PrivateVPN claims that it “doesn’t collect or log any traffic or use of its service.”
That’s great – unfortunately, that one quote is also the full extent of it. We’d like the privacy policy to explicitly say that it doesn’t log DNS requests, connection timestamps, or IP addresses, but thankfully a support agent confirmed that PrivateVPN doesn’t collect this data.
Ultimately, we trust PrivateVPN to keep you safe, and you should too, but ideally we look for a little more information and clarification in a privacy policy, just for peace of mind.
Jurisdiction PrivateVPN was founded in 2009 and is owned by Privat Kommunikation AB, which operates under the jurisdiction of Sweden, making it subject to EU data retention laws and intelligence-sharing agreements.
However, PrivateVPN’s zero-logs policy means that even if it was asked to comply with any type of investigation, it doesn’t have any information about its VPN subscribers to give to the authorities, so there’s nothing for users to worry about.
Ease of Use Simple setup and user-friendly custom apps
How to Install & Set Up PrivateVPN Screenshot of PrivateVPN Download Button Go to the downloads section of the PrivateVPN website to begin the installation process.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Terms and Conditions You have to accept PrivateVPN's terms and conditions before you can install the software.

Downloading and installing PrivateVPN is incredibly easy and takes only a matter of minutes. There are step-by-step installation guides for loads of popular devices on the website if you need help.
PrivateVPN’s minimalist VPN apps do a great job of keeping things simple while simultaneously showcasing its more advanced features.
The desktop and mobile PrivateVPN apps are very similar in appearance, and everything is clearly labeled and accessible – although mobile users should beware that the Android and iOS versions are missing the kill switch.
PrivateVPN’s apps don’t provide integrated support, either, so newbies or those looking for assistance will need to head online for help.
Customer Support Useful online resources but live chat is inconsistent
Live chat Support Online Resources PrivateVPN does have a live chat help feature on its website, but it’s not available 24/7, which is less than ideal.
The chat box is either red or green depending on whether or not it’s available – there doesn’t seem to be any way to predict exactly when that will or won’t be. When it’s unavailable PrivateVPN brings up an online form instead.
Email replies to the online form are fairly quick, and the support agents are very knowledgable and friendly.
Even if the live chat isn’t active when you need it, PrivateVPN’s online resources and FAQs should be able to see you through most issues.

Revolut Partners With Visa To Expand Into North, South America and Asia

Revolut Partners With Visa To Expand Into North, South America and Asia


News by Cointelegraph: Marie Huillet
United Kingdom-based digital banking app Revolut announced a major partnership with Visa to expand its services globally across 24 new markets, including North America.
According to a Sept. 30 press release, this will bring 56 markets worldwide in total into Revolut’s reach.

North, Latin American and Asian markets

Per the release, the terms of the agreement stipulate that Revolut will primarily issue Visa-branded cards as it pursues its global expansion push.
Visa will enable the app to launch services initially in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore and the United States.
This first group of jurisdictions will be followed by Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine and Vietnam.
The strengthened partnership between the two firms builds on their existing cooperation, which saw Revolut first issue Visa cards to its users across Europe in July 2017, says press release.

Revolut to hire 3,500 new staff members

In an interview with Reuters on Sept. 30, Revolut CEO and founder Nikolay Storonsky revealed that the firm will hire some 3,500 new staff members following the new deal, bringing its total workforce to around 5,000.
The Reuters report further indicates that the app’s launch in the U.S. and Singapore is expected by the end of this year, with Canada and Japan to follow. The timeline for expansion to Latin American and Asian markets has not been indicated and all launches remain subject to regulatory approval.
Storonsky told Reuters that the average Revolut client holds around 1,000 euros ($1,090) in their account. With the app’s 8 million user base, this translates into a total deposit balance of roughly 8 billion euros ($8.74 billion).
Earlier this year, Storonksy was prompted to publicly refute allegations of money laundering breach and negligence by the company. A period of negative publicity was followed by reports from U.K. broadsheets alleging Revolut executives deliberately decommissioned Anti-Money Laundering software in 2017.
The reports further claimed that the firm attracted the attention of the U.K.’s financial watchdog, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
In late 2017, Revolut rolled out support for Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Litecoin (LTC).
In June, Visa was named as one of the firms to have backed Facebook’s Libra stablecoin project via its membership in a newly-created independent governance consortium — the Libra Association.
Visa CEO Alfred F. Kelly Jr. subsequently emphasized that the 20-odd companies involved with Libra had reportedly only declared their interest via a nonbinding letter of intent.

Global Debt Nears Record $244 Trillion.. Tick! Tock!

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 15%. (I'm a bot)
The world's debt pile is hovering near a record at $244 trillion, which is more than three times the size of the global economy, according to an analysis by the Institute of International Finance.
The global debt-to-GDP ratio exceeded 318 percent in the third quarter of last year, despite a stronger pace of economic growth, according to a report by the Washington-based IIF released on Tuesday.
That's slightly below a record 320 percent of GDP in the same quarter of 2016.
Total government debt exceeded $65 trillion in 2018, up from $37 trillion a decade ago, and rose faster in mature markets.
Non-financial corporate debt rose to over $72 trillion last year, now near an all-time high of 92 percent of GDP. Household debt grew by over 30 percent to $46 trillion helped by strong growth in emerging markets, notably from China; though Czech Republic, India, Mexico, Korea, Malaysia and Chile all recorded more than 20 percent increases since 2016.
Financial sector indebtedness rose to about $60 trillion, up 10 percent from a decade earlier.

morning wrap up

Saudi Arabia annunced it will slash its oil exports unilaterally next month - by 500K barrels per day - as OPEC producers met over the weekend to halt a market slump that had seen crude decline by 20% since early October. A broader OPEC output cut was also debated in Abu Dhabi, but with Russia warning of "hasty decisions," a verdict was postponed until the next full OPEC meeting, scheduled to take place in Vienna on Dec. 6.
Economy
Sterling slipped 0.8% overnight to $1.1269 as former British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson came out swinging against Theresa May, stating the U.K. is on the verge of "total surrender" in Brexit negotiations. May also faces the threat of further resignations from several pro-EU ministers following the departure of transport minister Jo Johnson on Friday, while the Labour party said leaving the bloc without a deal would be blocked by parliament.
The euro is not "a clear alternative" to the dollar thanks to the U.S. currency's international "strengths," French President Emmanuel Macron told CNN. "This is an issue of sovereignty for me. We made a great job during the past years but it’s not yet sufficient... That’s why I want us to work very closely with our financial institutions, at the European levels and with all the partners."
Alternatives to Libor underpinned less than 5% of interest rate derivatives traded last quarter, FT reports, with regulators like the U.S. Fed and Bank of England trying to wean financial markets off the scandal-tainted benchmark. Banks will no longer be required to submit the daily rates that together form Libor from 2021 as many believe the benchmark no longer accurately reflects the cost of unsecured borrowing between banks.
World leaders are heading to Singapore for the semiannual ASEAN summit, where Chinese Premier Li Keqiang is expected to rally support for the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership, a free trade deal that will encompass more than a third of the world's GDP. The pact currently includes 16 countries, including China, India, Japan and South Korea, but not the United States.
Meanwhile, Vietnam's National Assembly has unanimously ratified the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership, the updated version of the TPP following the U.S.'s withdrawal in 2017. Brunei, Chile, Malaysia and Peru are now the four remaining member nations that are yet to ratify the 11-nation trade pact, which will slash tariffs across much of the Asia-Pacific.
U.S. stock index futures are starting the week not far from the flatline. No major economic data is expected and the session could see low trading volumes as U.S. bond markets are closed for Veterans Day. In earnings news, several retailers including Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Macy’s (NYSE:M) will be on the radar this week, with investors keen on hearing what they say about consumer sentiment.
Wildfires raging north of San Francisco and near Los Angeles have killed at least 31 people, as more than 250K people flee the areas against a backdrop of damages that could reach $19B. In the past, PG&E (NYSE:PCG) has been faulted for several deadly blazes across the state, and many are now pointing fingers at the utility, causing the stock to close down 16% on Friday. President Trump has also blamed the wildfires on poor forest management, threatening to cut off funding to California.
Stocks
Alibaba clocked in sales of $30.8B during its annual Singles' Day extravaganza, representing a rise of nearly 27% year-on-year, but smaller than the 39% Y/Y growth recorded in 2017. In the past few years, Singles' Day (NYSE:BABA) has exceeded the transaction volume of both Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. The event has also far surpassed Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime Day, which is the most similar to Singles' Day because it is also a 24-hour, online shopping event.
Paving the way for Japan's largest ever share listing, SoftBank (OTCPK:SFTBY) has received clearance from the Tokyo Stock Exchange for a ¥2.4T ($21B) IPO of its mobile unit. The new share issuance, pegged for Dec. 19, will add more fuel to its nearly $100B Vision Fund and mark the transformation of the mobile phone network provider into one of the world’s biggest technology investors under CEO Masayoshi Son.
Less than a week after Samsung (OTC:SSNLF) unveiled its "Infinity Flex Display," a new report from Yonhap News claims to have details about the upcoming bendy device. The smartphone will be dubbed the "Galaxy F" and debut in March, shortly after the 5G-enabled S10. While the company hasn't settled on a price, it likely won't come cheap, with a cost of as much as 2M won, or $1,770.
Once Democrats take control of the House, they are planning to investigate whether President Trump abused "instruments of state power" to penalize companies, incoming House intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff told Axios on HBO. That includes probes on whether the Trump administration attempted to block AT&T (NYSE:T) from acquiring Time Warner "to punish CNN," and whether officials sought to hit Washington Post relative Amazon (AMZN) by prodding the USPS to hike shipping prices.
M&A roundup: SAP has joined a growing list of software giants making big acquisitions in 2018, scooping up business software company Qualtrics for $8B just before its IPO. Reports also suggest private equity firm Vista Equity Partners reached a deal to buy software company Apptio (NASDAQ:APTI) for $1.94B, while Veritas Capital and Elliott Management agreed to acquire Athenahealth (NASDAQ:ATHN) for $5.5B in cash.
Diageo is selling a portfolio of 19 brands, including Seagram's whisky varieties and Romana Sambuca, to privately owned Sazerac for $550M. While proceeds will be returned to shareholders through a share buyback, the sale will be dilutive to pre-exceptional earnings per share in the first full financial year after closing. The deal will allow Diageo (NYSE:DEO) to have "greater focus" on its premium brands in the U.S.
The last ten years it was clove cigarettes, but this decade may see a menthol ban. Following a 4% fall on Friday, British American Tobacco (NYSEMKT:BTI) shares are down over 7% premarket on news that the FDA may take the minty product off the market. "BAT is the most exposed name to the potential risk," wrote Morgan Stanley's Richard Taylor, who estimates that U.S. menthol cigarettes (and its Newport brand) account for 25% of total earnings.
Aiming to close its deal for Shire (NASDAQ:SHPG) on Jan. 8, Takeda Pharmaceutical (OTCPK:TKPYY) will hold an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders to vote on the $62B transaction on Dec. 5. The deal would be the largest-ever overseas acquisition by a Japanese company, but it still needs two-thirds support from shareholders, some of whom are worried about the enlarged company's resulting debt burden, as well as regulatory approval from the EU. SHPG +1% premarket.
UPS freight workers have voted to approve a new labor contract, averting a strike that could have affected shippers transporting their goods around the country. UPS said it will immediately resume pickups for the division's customers, after its 11,600 workers stopped picking up orders earlier this month so freight cargo wouldn't be stranded in the network during a strike.
Ford is open to working with foreign rivals to expand self-driving services internationally, but declined to comment on reports that the company was in collaboration talks with Volkswagen (OTCPK:VWAGY). Development and business costs "billions and billions of dollars" per region, Ford's (NYSE:F) Autonomous Vehicles' CEO Sherif Marakby told the FT, so it's cost effective on "risk and the reward" to work together to deploy the technology across territories.
The market is predominantly filled with massive contractors - Boeing (NYSE:BA), Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) and SpaceX (SPACE) - but there's a new side to the commercial space sector. Rocket Lab put seven spacecraft in orbit on Saturday with its first commercial launch, hoping to be at the forefront of the small satellite industry. Big price point... The company's 56-foot tall Electron rocket costs $5.7M per launch, compared to almost $60M for SpaceX's 230-foot Falcon 9.

Monero is a semi-finite resource, like land. If you own Monero, find out the equivalent of the network you own in terms of world land areas.

This is the Monero edition of the legendary topic by coastermonger which compared Bitcoin share to Earth's landmasses.
It's not quite the same because as we know Monero has infinite-emission (although very slowly), but here I will compare land mass to the initial issue of 18.4 million Monero. To arrive at these values I took the bitcoin equivalents and multiplied them by the ratio of (18.4/21) so they may be slightly off but should be in the right neighborhood.
Enjoy your daydreams of owning Cuba! :)
