Godzilla ! Not just another monster movie

Had the chance to watch Godzilla King of the Monsters with my kids just recently and I must say that I enjoyed it more then the previous movies.

You do get a whole lot of monster action this time around and my son keeps on telling me the profile of every single monsters which started to appear in the movie.

Literally he did his homework and got all the names right for all these monsters including the montra ??? or something

For those who have not watch it, I do recommend this is one movie best to watch with someone who knows a bit more about these Titans else it would just be another monster movie.

Here is the interesting bit …. there was much reference to Kong – Skull Island in the movie, which I then decided to watch it again. Then I started to see the connection between these movies.

So it does look like we are in for a long long ride with Godzilla and all its other monsters movies with hope that it would end with a really epic ending just like Avengers ? or something like that.

So do go watch Godzilla … then reload up the Kong Skull Island and you would be at least caught up with whats in store for the next Godzilla movie.

Cheers and have a great week !

What’s happening in the CRYPTO scene in Malaysia

So it looks like numerous exchanges are starting to close its door in Malaysia and it does not really matter if they are new or old. What matters is that it has to comply with the current guidelines set by Security Commissions.

On their website, they have claimed that this is due to their bank accounts which were forced close by the national bank (Bank Negara Malaysia). This means that if you had some deposits with XBit, I do suggest that you move all your assets out immediately.

I did use XBit long time ago, however I do not use it anymore as i don’t really require it at this point of time. With Security Commissions coming down on every single crypto exchanges in Malaysia , its pretty exciting to see who will soar thru this period and be able to comply with the regulations which would be imposed on all crypto exchanges.

The ones which I do know are still in the running to be a “regulated” crypto exchange in Malaysia would be :

Luno has been around since 2013 the earlier days of crypto and was one of the early platforms where you are able to buy BTC with your MYR ( Ringgit Malaysia )

The other is SINEGY an exchange which had a lot of focus on the OTC Markets ( Over the Counter ) and had recently launched their exchange prior to the Malaysian Govt announcing new regulations to exchanges.

If you are in Penang tomorrow and would like to listen to both myself and SINEGY talk about what’s happening in the blockchain scene in Malaysia, do signup for our event tomorrow 25th May 2019.

We do look forward for your participation, its free and we welcome everyone. If you are unable to attend but would like your friends or family to understand more about blockchain & crypto do get them to signup and attend.

Cheers and see you all tomorrow !

Game of Thrones – its finally ended

I must say that I was not instantly interested in Game of Thrones when it first got released. I remember tried watching the pilot episode about 4 times before I actually made it to episode 2.

Even by then, the show seemed to have moved very slowly and I was just watching it as my friends were telling me how excellent it was and already 4 seasons had passed so there was a lot of catching up to do .

How I got hooked into Game Of Thrones was actually in episode 9 of season 1 where we see the first of the Stark to get executed and you truly thought that somehow that in the last few minutes there was going to be something that would happen to save Ned Stark.

But nope ! He’s head really did come off and that got me intrigued as it was different and you don’t really know who would be the hero which would last till the end.

Of course over the next few seasons we do see a lot of deaths from people we thought that would live thru. The most dramatic event was the RED WEDDING for me. Truly unexpected episode which I’m sure took everyone by surprise and have never expected to see more Starks die.

Except for Rickon Stark .. never had a connection with this one. He was never really involved in the show …

My favourite season was actually season 6 where we had House Bolton and House Stark battle it out. There was a lot of focus on the northern regions and its armies in this season.

So now with Season 8 finally over and we saw the end of the night king in one of Game of Thrones darkest episodes … and i literally meant DARK as everything seem to have been shot in the night.

And John Snow who had prevented the rise of another mad king or let me rephrase .. mad queen. It was clear that she was headed towards the path of insanity.

So we start to wonder, what other epic tv series do we watch next after literally watching the finale of what took a decade to build up to. And this so coincidentally also happened just not too long after Marvell finished off Avengers Endgame a brilliant end to a decade of buildup.

Now scrolling thru the tv series finding something worthwhile watching. Heck .. even Big Bang Theory just ended ! LoL ….

SO whats next ? Anyone ?? Please no vampire shit as I never did like those series.

Halving is coming

It would be another 1 year before bitcoins block mining rewards gets halved. So now, all blocks mined pays about 12.5 BTC per block and at every 210,000 blocks it gets halved. This would meant that 6.25 BTC rewards per block mined.

The question would be is that will this boom the price of the market as it gets harder and more expensive to mine blocks ? When Bitcoin first came out we all could use our computers to mine BTC however now , mining these with computers would be too slow and only large warehouses of mining farms using natural cooling and almost free electricity would be worth mining BTCs

Over the pass week we have seen a nice bull run with BTC and some key alt coins and for those who were trading actively on the BTC markets, would have taken advantage of the up and down and up and down.

I have tried mining before and in my own opinion, I do think that learning to trade the crypto markets is way much more fun then maintaining machines.

But that’s just me, I do enjoy learning up new altcoin projects and see if its worth investing in .

So what about you ? Mining or Trading ?

have a good day !

Crazy cheap flights

So how does flying around the world on really cheap rates sounds ? I stumbled across this website and took a look at the rates. Its crazy cheap !

How would you like to get a round trip to the Maldives and enjoy the beautiful islands … sounds like a dream trip eh ?

So if you really are keen to go, the flights are really that cheap. I wish I knew how they manage to get it at that rate. I would guess that they have purchased in bulk and just need to sell those seats.

Booking the hotels are another different thing though … however I’m sure that you would be able to get some sort of AirBnB at the destination you are heading to.

So this is just one of the many GEMS which I managed to find in the internet. Do share if you do come across any interesting site. This is surely worth a bookmark don’t you think ?

Hey its FRIDAY ! Have a great weekend ahead.

SNAX – get rewarded with your social activity

I came across this just recently and found out that SNAX is having a STEEM-BOUNTY program. But firstly what is SNAX ?

SNAX is a fork of EOS and its a Decentralized Social Media Overlay meaning to say that it provides content creators who are using platform such as Twitter, Reddit, Instagram and such with cryptocurrency called SNAX.

The idea is that normally content creators on these platforms does not get rewarded with anything unless they have hundreds of thousands of followers which leads to partnerships with brands who wants them to get engagement for their products.

With SNAX, you just need to create content and you would then be able to start receiving rewards. I signed up and connected my sad little twitter account and this was what I received.

Even though its not much however, its still a great step forward. As they say .. 0.01 cent earned is still more then 0. And since I’m on twitter why not make extra from it.

STEEM Bounty ?

SNAX is running a bounty program with the STEEM community. All you would require to do is to write a post and thats about it. How much you will get from the airdrop would be determined by how many followers you have.

At this point of time there is only Twitter Integration and soon there would be more to come. So you have nothing to lose, just signup for SNAX and start earning.

Bounty program would start payouts on the 14th May !

So get your post out and lets make this collaboration a success for everyone. I’m sure its beneficial for everyone.

STEEM POWERUP DAY

Its 1st of May and I just realized that its STEEM POWER UP DAY ! Lets call it SPUD for short.

I guess the original post came from @streestyle with a simple yet powerful idea of getting everyone to power-up what they can on 1st May !

https://steemit.com/steem/@streetstyle/you-have-some-steem-now-what-steem-power-day-steem-voting-rvf4s7w5

The message and the initiative grew like wildfire across the STEEM community and today is that day.

I have Powered up 280.263 STEEM

Now I do encourage all of you guys to power up whatever you can, even if its just 1 STEEM. I personally think its a great initiative and its amazing to see how the communities started following thru.

So have you powered up yet ???? If not … just DO IT !

If you took a look at the tag of SPUD you can see that a lot of other steemians has already done their power up. So why not just join in the fun and lets make this a successful drive !

Avengers Endgame was just awesome!

Like seriously, the Russo brothers really did justice to the entire MCU closing the story lines for all our favourite superheroes in the Marvel Universe.

Without putting out too many spoilers, every part of the story took us back thru almost every single MCU movies in relation to the ENDGAME over the past 10 years, however, taken into account that the ending of Endgame is something which you really need to pay special attention to as it does get confusing at first.

We also start seeing new suites for almost everyone and this ironman suite was pretty amazing. One of the highlight for any MCU movies is that Ironman always comes up with really funky suites with features getting better and better.

Even Captain America has gone thru a lot of changes in his suite. Well, coming back to the movie Avengers Endgame. All I can say is that it gave good closure to few of our heroes and it also opens up new beginnings.

I’m sure that there would be new leadership in the MCU universe and perhaps we would see another epic Avengers movie in the very near future. With DISNEY owning Marvel now, they would surely have already planned continuity for the Marvel universe and we have loads more coming up.

We do know that Spiderman next movie is coming up in July and I’m sure that would be the spark which moves towards the next Avengers movie. Looking forward to it.

So what did you think of Avengers Endgame ? Was it as what you expected ?

Beware of sextortion email scam

A few days ago I received about 3 emails with this attached image. It literally states that it has installed a keylogger onto my machine and has been monitoring me and monitoring my keylog.

So it stated that it gives me 48 hours before sharing my video captures and bla bla bla ……… send $1000 worth of Bitcoins to this address so they will not do it.

If you receive these kind of emails, the best thing to do is just throw it in the trash and clear the trash….. just ignore it.

What sent alarm bells ringing was that they sent email to me , from my own email with the subject matter … my name.

Well .. obviously as my emails does have my name on it. So don’t get panicky on it and you know its just a scam trying to get ur crypto.

I also did a lookup on that Bitcoin address and this is what i got.

https://www.bitcoinabuse.com/reports/1DnHxP12w4hyzP4H8sh2tpYA8pXLARpD9U

Looks like many other people has reported it and its saying the same thing.

So beware of these kind of emails and just trash it as soon as you see it and don’t even bother opening the email. If you are running a windows machine, make sure you have at least a good antivirus perhaps by McAffee or Avast …. whichever that works for you.

Also backup your machine regularly so that if you suddenly need to format it, you have a copy of your data.

Stay safe everyone and have a great day.
