  • Is this cryptocurrency the next best safe haven for your money
  • Bitcoin is getting a lot of airtime in the mainstream media lately. Last week Francois Joubert discussed it when he warned you about your investments in MMM Global and MMM Global's ‘Bitcoin Republic'. Then, Carte Blanche spoke about it on Sunday night. So it would be a flaw on my side if I didn't do my research into the cryptocurrency (a digital currency that's beyond government restriction and confiscation).

  • Imagine this… The mining sector is in talks with mining minister Mosebenzi Zwane on 25 and 26 April 2016. This comes after the release of the new “Draft mining charter”.

  • “Future proof” your portfolio with today's offshore pick
  • This weekend, Samsung booked out a large chunk of Sandton Square to put on a very innovative promotion based around their new Oculus VR gear. As you walked in, your eye was immediately drawn to a series of rollercoaster seats where people were screaming, throwing their hands in the air or ducking away from non-existent obstacles. Well, non-existent in our reality, of course. Welcome to the world of Oculus VR. I had to try it. So, after listening to a few mandatory sales pitches around wearable tech helping to find my lost phone, and avoiding kids wandering around with futuristic headsets grasping at the air for things that didn't exist, I got to test drive this wonder of modern technology, by riding the Six Flags rollercoaster right here in Joburg… Now I'm not going to go through the sensational (and slightly queasy) feeling my first VR experience left me with...

  • MMM Global could cost you a lot more than just the money you've put into the scheme… On 13 January 2016 I warned you the MMM Global scheme could cost you everything you invest in it. On 23 March 2016 I told you it was an illegal pyramid scheme and its collapse is looming. And as we're speaking this scheme is collapsing. But if you still put any faith in it, and according to reports many investors still do, you're at risk of losing much more than your investment.
