STEEM BUSINESS ALLIANCE ( @steemba ) has been entered as a community partner for Malaysian Blockchain Week and I would hope to make a difference and grab as much awareness for STEEM during these events.

Time to get cracking on my presentation, these are opportunities where STEEM can gain traction therefore it has to be as perfect as it can be.

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 !

I do hope that you will be able to support this drive to promote the Steem blockchain and take it to greater adoption by the masses.

Blockchain awareness protects innocent people from scams

One of the main reasons why we should always educate the public about the technology and not only about the monetary benefits of cryptocurrency is to protect innocent people from scammers who tries to take away their hard earn savings.

We have seen this many times and I’m sure we all have either a family member, friends or even ourselves got scammed before. Most of the time this happens is because we are unaware and uninformed with the right information, therefore these scammers takes advantage of that.

Below is a clear example of a scam which has been spreading thru Telegram.

Just because it looks like its a message from BINANCE a trusted exchange which thousands of people use to trade everyday. They would think that BINANCE is actually about to give out free BTC or ETH.

As the price of crypto goes up, we start seeing more and more of these scammers emerge out just to try to steal your precious cryptos. And there were a lot of success thus why they keep doing it.

So that is why we should always take the opportunity to get our friends and family informed about these scammers and best part educate them so that they do not fall into the trap of these scammers.

Lets make sure that we squash these scammers and protect our friends and family.

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 )

Image result for sinegy 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 .

Image result for which episode did ned stark die

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.

Image result for the red wedding

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.
