It’s a great time to look into alternative income sources right now, with the whole global situation and the way things are shaping up for the foreseeable future. Of course, there’s also a pretty big challenge attached to that at the moment, mainly due to the general instability of the market. The volatile nature of current affairs can make it difficult to know if you’re making the right choice early enough, which requires a lot more patience than usual.

Forex and real estate remain two of the most attractive options for those who want to earn a little something on the side – or even develop a complete new business – but there are some caveats that require a lot of attention before getting started. Choosing to invest in real estate or Forex trading is a decision that should not be made lightly.

Understanding the Current Situation and Future Prospects

You must understand that the current market situation has changed a lot, and you can’t expect certain mechanisms to work as reliably as before. On the contrary, it’s also created some interesting new opportunities for those who know how to utilize them. But the general consensus is that we can’t rely on those changes for the long run, because once things start getting back to normal, the market will follow suit. Any plans you’re making right now should take that into account.

How Forex Works

The Forex market is a great way to get started with trading finances even if you have limited resources for that purpose right now. It’s not an easy ordeal at first, admittedly, and it requires a lot of research to even get off the ground. But if you have the knack for it, it can be a very reliable source of income in the long run. Even in the current unstable market situation, you can still expect to see lots of opportunities on the Forex side of things in the coming weeks and months.

How Real Estate Investments Work

The real estate market is in a very weird place right now, and it’s hard to make any adequate predictions about how things will work out in the future. Many properties have started to drop in value, which can be an attractive investment opportunity. But at the same time, it should be a warning signal to those hoping to make a quick buck. Real estate investments usually require some long-term planning to be successful, and you might have to wait for many years before you can cash out on some of them. But if you hit the right spot, you can expect to get a great return on your initial investments.

Real Risks on Both Sides

No matter how you cut it, both the Forex and real estate markets have their associated risks. The main general difference is that Forex is a shorter-term game than real estate, but it has just as much potential to benefit you – or to cause you trouble if you’re not careful. One huge advantage in favor of Forex in terms of risk management is that popular trading platforms allow you to try your luck with a demo account where there’s no risk involved. But keep in mind that the way things work on this account may not always reflect the reality of trading on that platform later on.

Know Your Strengths and Weaknesses

This is also an individual choice to a large extent. You have to understand yourself and know what your own strengths and weaknesses are. Everyone has some things that they are good at, and some areas in which they don’t really excel. So don’t rush into the one thing that’s against your nature, at least not without giving yourself sufficient room to fail gracefully. Investing all your savings into something that you might not even enjoy doing in the long run is a terrible idea, all things considered.

Be Flexible

Last but not least, try to maintain a degree of flexibility in your planning. As we mentioned above, the current situation is very volatile and is subject to change at any given time, and on very short notice. Because of this, you should avoid making any rigid plans that you can’t easily backtrack from later on. There is a lot that you can do to improve your situation in this regard, so plan ahead carefully and try not to rush.

Both markets are great and offer fantastic opportunities for those with the right skills and assets to take advantage of them. But it’s going to take some active planning to get things done properly, and you’ll want to ensure that you are not missing any of your critical bases that you have to cover. It all boils down to sufficient patience in most cases, so arm yourself with a lot of it, and give yourself enough time to familiarize yourself with everything that will be relevant in your newly chosen venture.

Local bitcoin Trader Jailed for Money Laundering

Indicted: Local bitcoin Trader Jailed for Money Laundering

Local Bitcoin trader, Theresa Lynn Tetley, also widely known as Bitcoin Maven has been indicted for indulging in illegal bitcoin-for-cash transactions. According to the Central District of California, the LocalBitcoins.com trader has been sentenced to 12 months in prison.

She has also been handed a three-year supervised release and a $20,000 fine. A former real estate investor and stockbroker, the court ordered her to relinquish $292,264.00 in cash, 25 assorted gold bars, and 40 bitcoin.

money launderingTetley pled guilty to one count of operating an unlicensed money exchange business, and another related to money laundering. Her case is the first of its kind in the Central District of California.

Tetley was procedurally supposed to register her business with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, an agency of the United States Department of the Treasury.

The agency is responsible for analyzing transactions to curb money laundering and related financial crimes. She also failed to implement standard anti-money laundering protocol, including reporting of certain financial sources as per the requirements of this type of business.

Tetley is said to have traded over $6 million for clients within the United States and charged higher rates as compared to other traders within the LocalBitcoins platform.

Also noted in the court documents was that Theresa Lynn laundered bitcoin for a customer who had been suspected of having acquired the cryptocurrency through illegal activities, including drug sales on the dark web.

She also carried out a bitcoin to cash transaction for an undercover agent who had explicitly declared that his bitcoin was tied to narco-trafficking operations.

According to the report, Tetley’s service was responsible for fueling the growing use of cryptocurrencies to launder money and supported a black market system set up purposely to circumvent the law.

The organizations involved in her investigation included the IRS Criminal Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Just One of Many

That said, the government has been committing significant resources to counter the crypto – dark web menace, and earlier this month, a major sting operation was carried out against a major money laundering network. Thirty-five suspects were arrested.

One individual, identified as John Edward Monette, was charged with Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance. He was also alleged to have carried out numerous bitcoin for cash exchange transactions on the dark web, most of them in 2017 and totaling about $19,000.

Another dark web vendor busted during the operation, Ryan Farace, 34 was indicted for being involved in an alprazolam tablets manufacture and distribution scheme.

He sold the drugs on the dark web, with all transactions being made in bitcoin. Additional digital currency money laundering transactions were made to conceal the sources.

Why You Need to Get Onboard With Blockchain!

Why You Need to Get Onboard With Blockchain!

Blockchain tech – so revolutionary in nature that some are calling it the “new internet.” It has applications in just about every industry, and has completely altered the way we think about internet security, the processing of information, and the speed of transactions.

Blockchain is the technology that supports the digital currency  or cryptocurrency called Bitcoin –

however this is not what it is really about as it has a far wider scope of applications and is being commercialized in a growing number of areas.

It has generated much interest in technology circles and beyond, because of the new possibilities it opens up in financial services, the public sector and other areas.

According to sites like BitFortune.net, blockchain tech is definitely worth keeping an eye on due to the myriad of benefits it provides.

Blockchain and Bitcoin are not the same thing – Bitcoin is implemented using blockchain technology, but blockchain technology can be used in contexts much wider than Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. so when we are talking about the blockchain we are talking about a combination of a number of technologies, these including:

  • Distributed ledgers.
  • The blockchain data structure.
  • Public key cryptography.
  • Consensus mechanisms.

Part of what makes it so exciting is that it is completely open source. As a result, there are already a number of interesting blockchain apps, and the number is growing daily.

The technology is so secure that it is already being used by DARPA to secure military data. Various governments around the world are working on ways to use the tech to protect their own data.
The tech is tamper-proof, and the data stored within it is permanent. It cannot be erased or altered, and this is what makes it so enticing to those needing more secure networks.

But there is more, folks. (Okay, so that sounds a bit like an infomercial, but the benefits are real nonetheless.) Transactions can speed across the network – taking only as much time as it takes for them to be authorized.

The blockchain cannot be described just as a revolution. It is a tsunami-like phenomenon, slowly advancing and gradually enveloping everything along its way by the force of its progression.

William Mougayar

The system runs without the need for an intermediary, and this reduces the time it takes to execute transactions. This, and the unique way that the tech works, means that costs are significantly reduced as well.

What makes it so revolutionary is that the information is spread across every computer within the network. With Bitcoin, that means the data is securely “backed up” over thousands of computers.

Now, it is unlikely that banks will entrust their data to a public network in the same way, but they have been working on creating networks of their own instead.

The potential savings in terms of cost and time are extensive. If you want to learn more about these savings, check out the infographic below.
