    Even a 500% Increase in Crypto Facilites’ Trading Volume Didn’t Affect Bitcoin’s Price

    Even $1 billion worth of trading in crypto futures hasn’t affected the price of bitcoin much. Behaving against the general perception of the prices changing after the market being overbought, the 500% increase in Crypto Facilities’ futures trading didn’t lead the market into a bull run. Kraken’s acquisition of Crypto Facilities is considered to be one of the biggest acquisition in this space. The success of the acquisition is marked by the fact that almost $1 billion in crypto futures ha...

    Here comes the sun: the future looks bright for solar energy in Poland

    Last year saw a boom in the solar-panel market with over 50,000 Poles installing them on their roofs as people looked for alternative and greener sources of energy.

Back in 2015 only 3,000 homes had panels but come the end of 2016 that number had grown to 10,000 and has kept on growing ever since.

    5G is a threat to Europe’s absolute net neutrality

    The EU has done a good job upholding net neutrality since it implemented a law on it back in 2016, but European net neutrality will face a new challenge in 2019: how to deal with 5G. The current net neutrality law is undergoing reform this year and it’s expected that it’ll largely revolve around the question of whether 5G should be treated like 4G and other internet services under net neutrality, or get special treatment.

    A gargantuan green dragon hisses in the sky over Iceland. Either "Game of Thrones" really upped its production budget for its final season, or the sun belched a barrage of charged particles into our atmosphere again. As much as any of us would like to see a real dragon breathe flames into the winter sky, buzzkill NASA blames solar activity — as usual — for the writhing, "fire-breathing"- aurora that loomed over Iceland earlier this month.
