  • What impact will the G20 have on the rand and why the rich are leaving South Africa
  • The G20 summit in Osaka, Japan has just finished. Who would have thought this two-day conference could have such an impact on our stocks, economy and even our currency. And even the bullish sentiment towards the world markets and the US dollar, has left South Africa in a troubled state for the rand for rest of 2019. Today I'm going to discuss two reasons why I expect the rand to we... ››› more

  • South Africa vs the World
  • If you have a JSE portfolio, you know the markets have been bad for the last few years. From the start of January 2015 until the end of February 2019, the JSE top 40 is up less than 15%, which is less than 5% per year. This is much less than the “normal” return of about 15% per year. The recent underperformance of the JSE is a key reason many retirees are now experiencing a shortfall i... ››› more

  • Do you think ONLY criminals use cryptos
  • Many people have dubbed cryptos, the currency of criminals. People believe that each day millions of dollars' worth of cryptos are being used for hacking, money laundering or drugs. Of course, there are people that use cryptos for illegal purposes, but if this was its main purpose, then the crypto market would be MUCH bigger. The fact is, criminals still favour cash…and banks.

  • Beware: Not all stable coins are created equal
  • Last week, I introduced MoneyMorning readers to the world of stable coins - price-stable cryptocurrencies. Their ultimate goal? To eliminate volatility and create stability in crypto prices.

  • "Stablecoins”: The future currency
  • A useful currency should be a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and a store of value. But to this day, Bitcoin - which was touted as a viable alternative currency - has failed to achieve this. You see, because bitcoin is so volatile, a consumer or an investor can significantly overpay or underpay for a product. A product that costs $7,000 can cost $8,000 or $6,000 in a few hours. Also... ››› more

Its white paper says it can process over 250,000 transactions per second (tps). That's about five times what VISA can do. About 12,500 times what Ethereum c... ››› more
