Water Pollution! a gift for the next generation

Water, a basic necessity to all the living things on this planet is getting contaminated day by day and the life which inhabits on it is deeply disrupted. As the earth contains 3/4 of water which is probably the biggest reason for living things to be alive and every living thing depends on this natural resource. Oceans across the world are getting polluted at a large scale and the biggest culprit behind this mess is none other than the humans themselves.
A humungous amount of plastic gets produced every year which is a big shareholder in polluting the water as loads and loads of trash gets dumped into the ocean every minute and the total amount looks even scarier, millions of tons of plastic get devoured by the oceans every year and the sea life is a major concern whether the species might exist in the years to come.
What is plastic?
Plastics are manufactured (human-made) materials, made from polymers, the molecules of plastic contains various carbon atoms, hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur, and nitrogen filling in the spaces. A polymer is a molecule made from combining a smaller molecule called a monomer. Poly means many, so polymer is basically a combination of many monomers. Think about a house made up of many bricks each brick is the monomer and the resulting house is the polymer which is made from many bricks (monomers).
Biodegradation is a process “the metabolic breakdown of materials into smaller components by living organisms or microorganisms”.
Depending on the type of material and environment, the time to complete biodegradation may vary. Plastics takes hundreds and hundreds of years to complete its decomposition, because of the polymers that combine to make up its chemical structure.
Global Impact:
The impact of plastic pollution in the oceans varies and affect multiple domains of species whether living in the sea or not.
-Animals & Fishes:
Animals & Fishes use the sea as their home, to drink or to travel across the shores etc.
Shoals of fish die due to the cause of eating plastic thrown into the sea. It is researched that the fishes don’t die just by eating plastic but the plastic eaten is not metabolized due to the weak metabolism of these species resulting them not to eat for many days as they feel eaten all the time which starves them to death or by suffocating made by the plastic which gets stuck down the throat.
-The Food Chain:
An important aspect which keeps the world going through many phases of time, but due to mass damage to marine life by the pollution, the small breed fishes aren’t able to reproduce. Damaging the food chain in the sea as well as on land.
Low levels of BPA and PS oligomer have been proven to cause hormone disruption in animals. Scientific research has shown many results about the disruption of metabolism in human and animals.
Heart diseases, diabetes, abnormally high levels of certain liver enzymes and chemical levels in urine are affected.
-Coral Reefs:
Often associated with the term “Rainforests of the sea”. Coral reefs are sea animals which are made up of rocks and leaves. Corals are important for the sea life but the plastic pollution in the ocean destroys many corals by getting attached to the head of coral and ripping it off with huge tides.
Countries which mostly rely on their sea trade with other nations are heavily affected by the disrupted sea trade in the past decade or so.
Some facts about plastic pollution and ways to reduce it.
Facts About Water Pollution:
  • At least 8 million tons of plastic enter the oceans each year.
  • There is more micro plastic in the ocean than there are stars in the Milky Way.
  • 322 million tons of plastic were produced in 2015.
  • Almost 80 percent of marine litter is plastic-based.
  • More than 50 percent of sea turtles have consumed plastic.
  • The average U.S. citizen consumes 167 plastic water bottles each year but only 25 percent of them are recycled.
  • The quatntity for plastic pollution in the ocean may increase 10 times in the next decade.
  • 15 million children under the age of five die each year because of diseases caused by drinking water.
  • Plastic waste pollutes water drastically and is causing a huge destruction in marine life and it is believed almost 100,000 sea mammals, birds and various types of fishes die each year.
  • The aquatic animals have an estimated extinction rate five times more than that of land animals.
Ways to reduce or limit the waste:
1. Stop buying disposable bottles
2. Take your own household equipment when going hiking or to seaside
3. Boycott micro beads (a form of plastic) used in various products
4. Ask marts or shops to use paper or cardboard bags
5. Reuse your products at home
6. Buy items in cardboard boxes
7. Bring your own shopping bags for shopping
Awareness & Concern:
A concern towards the marine life as some fishes and mammals may become extinct in the years to come and some are already endangered species especially the small species which face difficulty reproducing.
Strive towards protecting the water which is the core necessity required for any living thing on this planet to live, the earth which contains about 70% of water but only 2.5% of water is freshwater and the world dreads that in the coming decade large amount of population will be affected by the shortage of drinking water.

Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro – Whats New?

Xiaomi seems to be on an errand to take the cheap smartphone to a new level with their redmi 3 pro. Redmi 3 pro incorporates all the great features. However, Xiaomi added some significant upgrades to the redmi 3 pro device. In this article, we will be looking at the pros and cons, the goods and the bads, merits & demerits of Xiaomi’s redmi 3 pro in detail.


Redmi 3 pro is as same as the redmi 3, nothing really changed except for the fact that Xiaomi added a fingerprint scanner on the back. It is very accurate and it works straight from the standby mode. Once they first pick the phone up I noticed that the build quality is actually slightly better than the redmi 3. There is no major difference but the buttons are slightly better tactile feedback and there are absolutely no moving parts on the device. We have the same button placement, the same parts camera, and it is the same phone in terms of the design as the redmi 3 except for fingerprint scanner.
Coming to the hardware, redmi 3 pro has improved as compared to the redmi 3. It consists the same octa-core snapdragon 616 chip with maximum clock speeds of 1.5 gigahertz. However, now we are getting 3 gigabytes of RAM and 32 gigabytes of expandable storage via the microsd card slot.
The gaming performance is sufficing, as well as it runs perfectly on the medium graphics. There were just a few minor skipped frames on the highest graphics settings. So you can enjoy playing the most demanding games on the redmi 3 pro. It comes with mei 7.2 that has been built on top of android 5.1. Hopefully Xiaomi updates this phone to marsh mellow soon. UI is the same as on any other Xiaomi phone. As usual, no app tray and all apps rest on the redmi 3 pro’s home screen. In case you are not yet familiar with the MI UI, it has tons of features customization options that consist a wide choice of a themes, wallpapers, fonts and so on.
Also you can customize the LED light, assign different tasks, so capacitive buttons do various tweaks and personalize the phone in a lot of different ways. As far as the loudspeaker it is pretty good too. Not the best, but it has the reasonable amount of depth and it does not sound tinny like some other cheap phones.


            The 13 Megapixel camera takes pictures very fast and that is thanks to the face detection autofocus.
Also I have notices slight improvement over the redmi 3 and that’s all due to the updated software. The camera has become more consistent with daylight shots and doesn’t struggle with focusing. If you take pictures in good lighting you can achieve some great results. The images are sharp and detailed almost every time you take a photo. The only downsides are that sometimes there is a software focus on the corners. And the dynamic range was off in a few shots. The indoor and low-light shots have less detail and more noise but they are still not bad for the phone this cheap before you compare the redmi 3 pro to other devices. The video quality is good but not great, the level of detail is decent. There is some noise in the video, the footage could have more sharpness. The lack of optical image stabilization leads to a kind of shaky footage. Well I consider it is too much to ask for optical image stabilization in budget phone.


 All the connectivity options were great, everything is okay, in terms of quality. The signal reception is excellent. Aslo the Wi-Fi, GPS and Bluetooth are working fine however, I was disappointed that the phone does not support 5 gigahertz Wi-Fi connection.

The battery life is fantastic. I could not squeeze the battery out in one day even on a heavy usage that involved gaming, installing lots of apps, watching a lot of videos, taking pictures, browsing the web and so on. I was able to achieve over seven hours of screen on time with a maximum auto brightness setting of the screen. Which means you can achieve even more impressive results if you reduce the brightness or don’t use the phone that heavily.                
Finally Xiaomi claims that the Redmi 3 pro has a fast charging feature. Xiaomi redmi 3 pro is an upgraded model over the redmi 3. It has preserved the great looks of the redmi 3 and it even spars a better build quality. Right now the phone feels more solid, in the hand. Also the addition of a fingerprint scanner which is by the way pass inaccurate is a great feature to have in a compact phone.

UI Display

You may not see a major difference in terms of the UI or gaming performance with the additional 1 giga of RAM or more storage space. But, these specs make the redmi 3 pro more solid and future-proof device. The daylight image quality seems to have become more consistent and that is thanks to the software optimization. However, don’t expect any seller results in low-light scenarios. Some might agree some might not, but if you ask me I would have loved to see backlit capacitive buttons on the pro model.
Also while the 720 p display is pretty good and spectacular. The 1080p panel would have better justified the pro moniker.


All in all the Xiaomi Redmi 3 pro is a very solid device and very hard to beat in this price range. It brought some welcome features and slight improvements over the redmi 3 and it is highly recommended to buy it if youre in the market of great affordable smartphones.

Will Facebook step into Crypto-World?

In the past few years, you would have realized everybody’s looking to get their hands dirty with the cryptocurrency. In our blogs prior to this, we have discussed cryptocurrency, pros and cons of cryptocurrency. But now we have something else to discuss.  We are all aware of the fact how good Mark Zuckerberg is to the community. Since he is always keen to bring new things on display, and is an technology enthusiast. Rumors are Facebook CEO is considering to step into and make his own mark in the crypto world.
Not only that, the CEO of biggest Social Media Networking Website (Facebook) also had positive words over the impact the Bitcoin will be making in the near future. According to him, future business and other global problems could be solved through the cryptocurrency (acting as a key to the lock).
Recently, he posted on his own profile of Facebook, naming the cryptocurrency technology to be one among the most interesting questions of the day. And also claims he is looking further, to study and understand the technology as well as know the cons and pros.
Mark Zuckerberg even emphasized on the fact that the use of cryptocurrency will help in the elimination of fake news. People also think, Zuckerberg is trying to catch up with the competitors Alibaba and WeChat that have mobile payments available. Taking Facebook to a different usage level for business organizations.

The Question: Will Facebook have its own Cryptocurrency?

Mark Zuckerberg has not kept it a secret that Facebook Co-founder is a cryptocurrency fanatic. Which baffled most of the minds, into raising one question. That is, “will the Facebook have its own Cryptocurrency?
Here we will be discussing that will that come into existence or if it should. & for that we have delved around the internet, learning cryptocurrency & merging it with the social media.
Let the fact alone, that a platform as powerfully enormous as Facebook having cryptocurrency or linked with a cryptocurrency will definitely have its potential.

What will Facebook need to do?

What are the odds that Facebook will face is another thing to look out for. Nothing is so easy, and with the cryptocurrency being a newly introduced form of currency, there are some aspects of digital money transfer still unknown to us. What will Facebook require to do? You ask. Well the answer to this is, at first a huge sum of investments is required to be invested in the regards to understanding the blockchain (how it functions, how it is developed). So that they can figure out a way to integrate blockchain into their massive organization.

Facebook digital Currency Impact?

Facebook entering into the crypto world, will be a huge boost to this young and fresh technology. Thus, it can inspire others and motivate others in jumping into the world of cryptocurrency. Allowing them to invest and adapt to this technology of the future, globally. Keeping in mind Facebook has monthly 2 billion active users, which will be a game-changer for the reach of Facebook’s digital currency.


Mark Zuckerberg is always keen on understanding the newer things, to solve the basic puzzles of human life that baffle daily life. And to make it easier he is keen in bringing out new ideas, and investing on them, and shaping them into life. But the endeavor in crypto world, can be a huge step forward for not just Facebook & its users, but also the Crypto world. Giving cryptocurrency the vast exposure to masses will be ideal for the both societies. But till now its only in the news, and we can’t really ascertain that to be happening. In case, if it’s the plan of Facebook, then we will surely love to have Facebook’s digital currency. 

Pinnacle Inventions for future

The new technological era shapes the future splendidly as every moment passes by with a variety of technologies and innovations occurring in present time. Since the development of the wheel which is to believe the biggest invention of human history among all the discoveries occurring through-time. Inventing and designing things haven’t stopped since it is in the human nature to raise questions about any possible object or a living thing which leads us towards inventing new things. Technologies are not invented in a blink of an eye(a metaphor) but in months, years or even lifetime of hard work of its inventor which makes it achievable, to be able to portray the desire, skills, and motivation behind the technology which is invented.
New technology inventions isn’t a hoax but a reality which is made possible through hard work and dedication. New technology inventions are accomplished to make not only the dreams of its creator possible but to make everyone’s life much easier and to be able to live a better much purposeful life.
Through time new technologies are invented and in this modern era of tech, the inventions are being made so quickly that sometimes the past technology invented is depreciated. Let’s discuss some of the cool technologies which can shape future of thousands and millions at an instance and improve our ecosystem, and communication and decrease the cost eventually.

Edible Water:
The question popping right after hearing this will be since when did water become edible? This edible water is a blob-like water container made from sodium alginate gel which lasts better than any other water. The purpose of inventing this was to increase eco-friendly environment due to the vast amount of plastic bottles being constructed every day by the companies. It is estimated at 450 years plastic decompose organically. Those countries with the shortage of water can be helped by these blobs in distributing safe and healthy water to its residents.

A wearable external suit for a human enhancing the strength and flow in a person’s body. A suit designed and powered by electric motors, and hydraulics to help people move with a greater force.
This invention was done in order to improve the movements and postures of disabled people to enhance and make their everyday life better.

Cloud Computing:
The literal meaning of this is the data we send to the server is calculated and send elsewhere to be stored.
Cloud computing provides a simple way to access servers, storage, databases and a broad set of application services over the Internet. Companies which provide cloud servers simply charge for the amount of service being provided.
A cloud-based server can be accessed by mobile and web.
Some of the benefits of cloud computing are:
– Cost
The cost for buying hardware and software for data servers is diminished and the cost for electricity bills also.

– Speed
Cloud servers are faster than the physical servers depending on the type of service being provided.

– Reliability
Data becomes more reliable as compared to others as the datacenters used to store the data can be duplicated and stored as a mirror image in-case of future disasters.

Self-Driving Trucks and Cars:
The possible future of human-driven vehicle is the self-driving capability of a vehicle. Cost of human life and fuel is the major part which will make the human-driven cars extinct and give self-driven cars more exposure towards society. As more and more companies work towards the automated driving of a vehicle due to the increase in accidents and fuel consumption. Two major competitors of the motor world Trucks and Cars which are widely driven type of vehicle across the globe and companies are working hard to make these self-driven but what are the cons which make us think of revolutionizing the vehicle world.
1- Accidents
2- Fuel
Humans tend to make mistakes and these mistakes can be costly taking human life with just one thrust of a pedal. Fuel is the also the key factor as automated cars will cover the routes even quicker without getting stuck in traffic with more efficient knowledge of roads.
We’ll just have to wait and see whether this technology will bring robustness or be a downfall.

Technology is one of few things in our world which has evolved over time and with the thinking of moving forward. Not every invention is a complete package towards glory but a chunk of what is to be achieved in the future. Technology has always been pivotal in inventions and globalization and about future technology:
“Expect some unexpected things in the time to come”. 

Shop at Go without Paying

Today we’ll discuss a new product launched by the famous retailers Amazon, having set foot in the physical book market previous year they are moving forward towards new ideas now even faster.
Who doesn’t like to shop at just a Go and skip the rest standing in a queue for billing part aside…well then your problem has just been solved by Amazon Go technology being officially launched for public earlier this month on 22nd of January in Seattle where the Amazon headquarters resides. Your shopping time won’t prolong much here as the purpose of this store is to minimize the time taken to shop at a grocery store and to encourage people to shop without any barrier.
Here we’ll share what is this product, how this product works, what technology this product uses, and much more.

What is Amazon Go:

An environment made for customers to grab whatever they may wish to buy with no cash registers and cashiers starring at you at the time of your exit as if you were stealing, this place is fully packed with cameras and sensors which monitor the products when moved in or out of the shelf and leave without on-time payments to be made.

How it works:

The way to shop for products here is a quite different experience which you may encounter unlike at other stores, as you will be needing an Amazon account and an Amazon Go app on your mobile phone to gain an access to the store. IOs and Android phones can download the application for Amazon Go from their respective stores i.e Apple App Store, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore etc.
People can enter the store with their phones that have this app installed, can shop freely as much as they want and will be charged for only those products which they take. After shopping just carry the items you intend to take with you and feel free to get out of the store anytime which will generate the bill slip sent to your mobile phone after leaving the store. No cashier means no cash register resulting in no stress to stand in-line and wait for turn this is impressive and attracting to those who are busy and have less time to schedule grocery shopping or to host a quick dinner for some friends as this store has a system embedded to also tell you about the list of items needed for quick 30 minutes of cooking.


Amazon boasts about the technology that their system uses computer vision, sensor vision, and machine learning. To explain it more, computer vision is the technology used by the store allowing cameras to see what item is being picked and who has picked it to determine the customer which is combined with the sensor technology which senses the type of product and much more.
The store is fully loaded with a bunch of cameras atop of the shelves or around the store which keeps track of the products being picked or returned. If a product which is been picked by a customer than that item is at instance added to the shopping list of the customer and removed when the product is returned to the shelf.

What products Amazon Go offer at the store?
A wide range of menu for meals throughout your days like breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options. Grocery ranges from daily necessity items like bread, milk, cheese, and chocolates. Quick home-cooked dinner, chef-designed Amazon Meal Kits, can be purchased with all the ingredients you need to make for a meal.

Final verdict:
Launching this product will help people who are either lazy or busy to do shopping with less time to waste and quick purchasing at this platform moreover with the increase in a potential market of the system with no cashier, this may affect the jobs of 3.5 million Americans according to a survey who work as cashiers for different stores. Amazon insisted global market on not being affected by this as they say we have workers here also who perform different tasks such as helping the customers, filling the shelves with products, monitoring etc. Opinion about Amazon Go technology, to be precise “A place worth visiting”.

Top 10 Cryptocurrency to invest in 2018

Today in this blog we will be talking about the best pics for coins that you should be holding on to from now until the January 1st2019. Here ten different cryptocurrencies are enlisted that I consider for you to invest your money. I will make you believe why you should be investing in them as well.


 Top of the list, lies Bitcoin, the supreme premiere of the cryptocurrency at the moment. It is a cryptocurrency you should believe in holding onto in 2018 and 2019 and even beyond. Bitcoin is the gold standard of cryptocurrency when your average consumer thinks about cryptocurrency they think about the Bitcoin. If someone talks about the Cryptocurrency you think of the Bitcoin, even if somebody wants to get into cryptocurrency you think of the bitcoin. All other cryptocurrencies are held to the Bitcoin standard and they are traded against the Bitcoin predominantly.


With a market cap of 100 Billion Dollars there are countless ICOs being built on the Ethereum. Right now it is still big thing when it comes to platforms and as cryptocurrency market goes up, Ethereum will continue to go up. It will continue to have power, and longevity. Ethereum , $1000 USDs may seem like a lot  of money and market cap of 120 Billion Dollars may seem like a lot of money.


Neo is one cryptocurrency that is very hot in recent time There are some great ICOs being built on the neo platform. The market cap is One-ten that of Ethereum. Still there is plenty of room to grow so long as neo continues to produce great ICOs that people are attracted in because if you want to get in on some of these ICOs you have to buy in with cryptocurrency that  it was built upon. Neo with market cap of 9 Billion that may seem high but moving forward as cryptocurrency begins to grow and these platforms continue to grow, I believe there’s still plenty of vertical room for something like Neo.


A lot of next choices you’re going to see in this top 10 list have one thing which is common amid them. That is they are all platforms for creating additional cryptocurrency. I feel that cryptocurrency is too early in its creation, too early and its adoption to really apply to B to C, which is business to consumer or customer card. Its 16 Billion Dollar Market Cap is built entirely on the hype that they are creating a platform to create other cryptocurrencies and to be the support structure for other cryptocurrency so once they launch their product I feel this price is going to shoot up.

Binance Coin:

Binance Coin has been already regarded the number one option for anyone trading in the USDs in North America. Binance Coin itself makes all of your transactions on the exchange cheaper by half. You have a very popular coin market cap 1.4 Billion obviously available on  Binance.


Enigma is available on Finance and Bittrex that are two of the biggest exchanges so lots of visibility. Enigma is trying to solve the problem that many big coins have right now which are two things, scalability and privacy. The brains behind are MIT Grads, tons of people with lots of experience


Po.et is available on Binance, Kucoin, HitBTC, OKEx which gives it plenty of visibility. Po.et is trying to solve the problem of tracking the ownership of digital creative assets whether that is written. Whether it be podcasts, whether it be video but is trying to create a way through blockchain to have ownership of your online creative assets at an individual price of 13 cents that will attract very amateur investors who like the thought of having a cheap individual coin.


DeepOnion is a privacy coin, and could easily reach a 500 Million Dollar market cap, in 2018 available crypto Pia and Kucoin so the most popular exchanges right now. It is easily accessible for masses. They are going to bring DeepOnion on more exchanges as of now.

Trade Token:

Trade Token is going to be the token of use on the new trade platform coming out in April called trade dot IO. If you think trade dot IO has what it takes to be a decent platform in the future going from 60 Million USD market cap to something like a 600 Million Dollar market cap. This coin is available OKEx, Gate.io. Also their very own Trade.io Exchange will be launching soon.

Internet Node Token:

Internet Node Token is a brand new coin available on the market with a very small market cap of 97 Million USDs. Now you might be considering why should you be investing in it? If you have any faith in the Internet of Things (IoT) or in IOTA, which sits on the market chart on cap of 7.7 Billion USDs. Internet Node Token are following the footsteps of IOTA trying to create a platform to help organize the IoT. Even if they never reach lofty heights of IOTA at a market cap of only 97 Million, even if it reaches one tenth of IOTA. You are looking at a massive return on your investment. This coin is coming straight out of China, and can be found at OKEx, CoinEgg, CoolCoin and Ether Delta.

Ways to buy Ripple

Ripple recently made a huge run, as it had earned lots of fame. With people’s fame, and sudden rise in the popularity of Ripple also gave us a sudden increase in its worth. Ripple is also called the XRP Coin. It is traded throughout many different exchanges. In one of the top traded coin at the moment. Ripple is also used upgrade our current wire transfer system with a swift code. All that is very antique and old consumes a lot of time and expensive. With Ripple you can move the money around from one bank to the other or do a wire transfer for one country to the other in a much faster way. It is not just fast but also much cheaper. For every time you use the Ripple, some of it goes away but a small amount (does it go to the minor?), it does not. It doesn’t go to the minor unlike the other cryptocurrencies. That small amount goes away forever. Most of those coins are actually controlled by Ripple Company, so it’s a centralized coin unlike Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Ripple is not decentralized.
Ripple is closer to the Bitcoin as the next best Cryptocurrency available. But it differs from Bitcoin in many other ways. There are two positives about the Ripple over Bitcoin. Ripple is quick and cheaper, also it is free of mining. Which sounds rare but is what gives an advantage over bitcoin

 What are the ways to Buy Ripple?

For basics, every cryptocurrency is different from the others. So does Ripple, and being backed by the major banks is what makes It stand apart. This lead Ripple in having allies that boosted it’s transactional protocol (XRP) making it one among the top cryptocurrencies by market share in the ongoing year.
In your pursuit to owning yourself some XRP, you should be aware of the basics. Like where to go? And what you be required to do in order to buy Ripple.
In this post we will be giving you the details, able enough to helping you in your errand of earning the XRP. Follow these and you will have your own XRPs.


·         Exchange
·         Direct Trade
·         Other Currencies


You might find different ways to store your cryptocurrency on, but the easiest methods               of buying & selling your digital currency. Whatever you choose, make your decision under the consideration of the fact, that where you store your crypto has insurance in case of theft or hack occurring.
Many exchanges, function differently from one another. Though most of them will require the similar initial steps from you. They’d require from you to sign up, and make sure the account is verified.
Exchange dashboard will take care of linking your bank account or any other payment method. After that your next step should be to make a new buy order. Which involves putting the amount of XRP you want to use, or the USDs you want to spend.

Direct Trade:

In case you are one of those who don’t want their currency be stored on an exchange or just find the need to have more control over the price, then Direct Trade is what you should go for. Cointal is the only site that is established for currency trading for the XRP. Cointal support various methods for payments incorporating Paypal, bank transfers, credit cards or debit cards. Using direct trade, isn’t much of a bother, nor any rocket sciences to imply. Go to the homepage, input XRP or the USDs you are willing to spend and search the offers.
Direct trades involve little more of an interest as compared with the exchange trades. But looking at the bright side, you won’t rely on any website that functions on its own

Other Currencies:

The methods we discussed above are involved using the money in your wallet. Not the digital currency involved in trading. But in case you own Bitcoin, Ether or any other cryptocurrency, there are several asset exchange                 websites. There are services such as ShapeShift and Changelly are hit among the people.


Ripple is regarded as possibly the best cryptocurrency in 2018 after the Bitcoin. Which lead to its increase in global worth, and people are charmed by its quick processing transfers.

One thing everybody would have noticed is that the digital currencies are volatile. That can be seen easily and noticed by anyone who’s following the cryptocurrencies. Since the virtual currency’s trading takes place on the numerous cryptocurrency exchanges     as compared with the central exchange. Which leads to increasing the volatility of the digital currency aka cryptocurrency.


When you meet someone online, how do you make sure, they are who they are writing to you to be? Or buy coffee, labelled with fair trade but what ascertains its origin? To assure, about the questions, you require system where records could be stored. Facts can be verified by anyone, and security guaranteed. So no one could cheat the system by editing records. Such systems are on the horizon & software that powers them is called the Blockchain. Blockchains store information across the network of personal computers. Bitcoin is founded upon the infrastructure of Blockchain. It is a digital and a decentralized ledger recording payment and transactions in the safe. 

Blockchain advantages:

There are various advantages that are associated with Blockchain. Not just the decentralization, as minors work entire 24 hours of each day a week verifying and confirming the transactions. With no middleman involved the costs of transactions would actually decline with the blockchain.
Another merit of Blockchain is the transparency & the control that it significantly offers the users with. Instead of the cryptocurrency be controlled and handled by a third-party, the community members are the ones who think together and find a solution for the future development. Though Blockchain has its very own drawbacks. To begin with, it is still under development or not yet fully developed. Also no guarantees of a quicker transaction with blockchain is guaranteed as far as yet.


Miners play a protagonist, by that I mean, whenever a cryptocurrency transaction is carried out. The transactions require a verification, which is the task upon the shoulders of miners. Mining isn’t the laborious one. All the miners have to do is solve complex computations, using high-powered computers to verify & log the transactions in a competitive way. The first to do the solution is rewarded in the form of cryptocurrency coins.
Demerit: Hardware & Electricity charges will be enormous. But also rewarding in handsome coins.   


To your surprise, cryptocurrencies are banned from access in most of the countries. They might be talked about here and there, but not everywhere. Since they aren’t regulated, decentralized, few of the countries have put up a ban on the cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency trading, virtual currency payments, buying things in digital currency is regarded as illegal in half dozen countries. The list of cryptocurrency banned countries is expected to grow in numbers.

Limited Knowledge:

Even though cryptocurrency is one of the most talked things globally, people still seem to lack knowledge about it, how it works, what is its use. According to a poll 80% nearly knew about the Bitcoins but only 30-40% knew about the Ethereum. People are still seemingly becoming accustomed to cryptocurrency and learn the digital currency.


Decentralization is one of the major attributes about the cryptocurrency that has been gaining public attention. & also a reason why people are coming towards the digital currency. No central hubs where the information is stored, no data centers, increasing the security.
Blockchain technology is so secure and reliable you can trust it blindfolded.

“All you need to know about SpaceX – Falcon 9”

Since the launch of SpaceX Falcon 9, a rocket program which made the social media buzzing and filled trendings like #aliens #ufo etc across different platforms for what it was to be believed were the aliens or a ufo hovering above us meaning the end of the world.
On the date of 22nd December around 5:27 pm at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California (United States) on Friday, a company named SpaceX launched its rocket program known as SpaceX Falcon 9 which is a partially reusable launch system build type rocket, launched in the skies of California. Let’s get to know what it is…

What is SpaceX in-case you didn’t know?
Space Exploration Technologies Corp. known as SpaceX is a private American based company known for its businesses in the fields of aerospace technologies.
Founded by an entrepreneur named Elon Musk in the year 2002, the headquarters are based in California (U.S.A), with the scope of various services included like low-cost space travel and the colonization of Mars. A various number of rockets are launched throughout the span of this organization such as Falcon launch vehicle family and the Dragon spacecraft family. Falcon 9 was the latest version of the spacecraft.

About SpaceX Falcon 9:
Let’s talk about the launch into the skies at the end of the year 2017.
Falcon 9 is a rocket designed and manufactured by the company SpaceX itself to make sure the reliability and safety transportation for a two-staged built rocket. The rocket was initially built for delivering satellites and spacecraft into orbit.
The basic purpose of this spacecraft was to provide low-cost
outer-space travel to private companies and for future space travels which will include people inhabiting on different planets. With re-flight system introduced for the first time in the world of rockets.

This Rocket is although a reliable source but with its nine first-stage engines it can complete missions even when the engine shutdowns.
History was made in the year 2012 when Falcon 9 delivered Dragon spacecraft into the orbit making SpaceX the first private company to do so. Since then Falcon 9 has made numerous trips to space, delivering satellites to orbit as well as delivering and returning cargo from the space station for  National Aeronautics and Space Administration(NASA). Falcon 9, along with the Dragon spacecraft, was designed from the beginning to deliver humans into outer-space and under an agreement with NASA, SpaceX is working toward this goal to make it possible and easing the lives of people across the globe. The estimated cost per launch for this craft is about $62M.

Falcon 9 family:
With some of its ancestors launched already and some are yet to come here is the list

Falcon 1:
The Falcon 1 was an expendable launch system privately developed and manufactured by SpaceX during the years 2006–2009.
On 28 September 2008, Falcon 1 became the first privately-developed liquid-fuel launched vehicle to go into space orbit around the Earth.

Falcon 9 v1.0:
The first of its kind, this version of the Falcon 9 generation launch vehicle. Falcon 9 v1.0, was an expendable launch vehicle that was developed in the initial years of the company from 2005–2010 and was launched for the first time in 2010. Falcon 9 v1.0 made a total number of five flights in 2010–2013 later on, it was retired.

Falcon 9 v1.1:
The second version of Falcon 9 spacecraft, first flight launched in September 2013, uses a longer first stage powered engine designed by nine Merlin 1D the engine arrangements for this is an “octagonal” pattern, SpaceX calls it Octaweb. To simplify the streamline of the craft and the manufacturing process this craft was designed.

Falcon 9 Full Thrust:
The third version in the series of Falcon 9 launch vehicle after the launch of the Falcon 9 v1.0 (2010–2013) and the Falcon 9 v1.1 (2013-2016)— has a cryogenic cooling of propellant increasing about 17% higher thrust.

Falcon Heavy:
The latest version of the Falcon series which is expected to be launched in the month of January 2018.
Falcon Heavy is also a reusable but super heavy-lift launch vehicle, designed and developed by SpaceX itself. The Falcon Heavy is a
sub-type of the Falcon 9 launch vehicle and will consist of a strengthened Falcon 9 rocket in the middle and two additional Falcon 9’s adjacent to it.

All the Buzzing Across the Globe:
As we uncovered the story about this event when everyone outburst different speculations regarding the launch, it is to be sure that no aliens neither ufos were to be found but a SpaceX rocket program which wrote history.
