What Is the Best Crypto Currency Platform?

Published

on

Cryptocurrency is rapidly becoming a favorite among investors and consumers alike. The financial tool is versatile, quick, and constantly evolving. Aside from the rock-solid security features that are backed into the very fabric of the crypto and blockchain models, cryptocurrency offers itself as a blueprint for other technology-packed features and applications that continue to expand what we collectively imagine as possible for the future of connectivity and information sharing.

 

Cryptocurrency is a great opportunity within a number of different realms, but many people prize the digital currency for its resilience as an investment vehicle. Investing in cryptocurrency has excellent upside, and with the market constantly open and mobile, traders can take advantage of whatever hours suit their busy schedules the best. With a 24-hour opening time, cryptocurrencies react in real time to the events of the global social, political, and economic marketplace as well. This means that research products and an eye for interactive pattern modeling are a must for anyone invested in the crypto space.

 

This all leads to the question of how one might get started or grow their holdings in the cryptocurrency world. The answer is, of course, a cryptocurrency exchange. These platforms act as brokers for trading and holding crypto assets, just like a stock brokerage account holds all your stock assets in one convenient location and allows for trades within market hours. But selecting the best cryptocurrency platform for your needs can be tricky. Many people ask themselves (and the internet), “What is the best crypto currency platform?” The truth is that there is no single “best” option when it comes to holding and trading digital currencies, only a great fit for your unique needs. Read on to discover how you can evaluate these needs in order to select the best platform for your trading patterns and holding requirements.

Security is a must for any good cryptocurrency exchange.

Beginners and professionals alike will surely recognize the importance of security when it comes to holding and leveraging digital currencies. A cryptocurrency exchange isn’t much of a trading platform if it doesn’t protect these assets from unwanted intrusions. Crypto is a difficult thing to “steal,” yet social engineering attacks have become highly sophisticated and are nearly tailor-made for this purpose. Whether you’re thinking of utilizing Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, or Robinhood for your cryptocurrency trading profile, understanding the broker’s history with cyberattacks and security of user information and assets is a must.

 

Many cryptocurrency exchanges have an excellent track record when it comes to this aspect of the cryptocurrency experience, so comparing security measures head to head is a great way to rank your top choices.

The fee structure will help determine profit margins.

Every cryptocurrency trade today comes with a fee of some sort. Buying and selling Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC), Binance Coin (BNB), or Litecoin (LTC) will cost you a fraction of your chosen payment medium, and these fees can add up for active traders who are placing tens, hundreds, or even thousands of trades per day. Selecting a platform that minimizes the cost of trading is a great way for those who want to maintain a consistently active presence to reduce the fees that are shaved off the top of every transaction.

 

Alternatively, some traders engage in the buy-and-hold strategy, just like they might within the stock market or with fiat currencies. Trading this way reduces the fees you’ll pay out of sheer volume, making the importance of fee considerations muted.

 

Whatever aspects of the trading space you prioritize the most, finding a great crypto exchange that meets your needs is all about the way you will engage with the market. Look inward for guidance in this arena.

How To Keep Your Kids Safe On The Internet

Published

on

There is so much that is unknown about the internet – new and potentially unpleasant or even dangerous sites are springing up every day, and the problem of online bullying is ever-present. It’s no wonder that parents can be very worried about the kinds of things that their children might be seeing and the people they might be interacting with online.

Although it’s difficult, as a parent you must take the time to educate yourself on the internet and to ensure that your kids are safe. This is not an easy task, but here are some ways it can be done.

Keep Up To Date

If parents are lagging behind in their knowledge of the internet and new tech, it’s highly likely their children are not. With this in mind, it’s crucial that you educate yourself on what is happening online so that you can be aware of the dangers and steer your children in the opposite direction, or at least be able to have a frank conversation about the issues that the internet can bring. Make sure you also learn its good points, though; otherwise you will find that your children may well miss out on the positive side of it and that could also be problematic.

 

You might also choose to learn about the internet with your children. Sit down together and explore some interesting sites and work out what is good and what isn’t. If you’re together, you can be sure of what your children are seeing, and your children can feel confident that they won’t find something unsavory by mistake.

 

Use Parental Controls

You won’t always be able to be close to your children when they want to go online; it’s just not entirely practical. If this is the case, you’ll need to set up some parental controls on their devices. When you do this, you can block certain sites or limit how long your kids go online for.

 

Although this might sound difficult, parental controls are quite simple to set up, and they are important too. Alternatively, you can find a Gabb Wireless discount code and get a smartphone specifically designed for kids. In this way, you can be sure that they are safe and they also have their freedom – this combination is ideal to allow them to grow and learn but stay protected.

 

Give Them Limited Screen Time

The more time children are online, the less they are outside in the fresh air, the less exercise they are getting, the less homework or reading they are doing, and the more they could be exposed to the bad side of the internet. With this in mind, it’s a good idea to limit the amount of screen time your children have – although the internet is a fantastic resource, and it’s a great way to relax, too much of it is detrimental to health and even happiness.

 

Make sure you have rules revolving around how much screen time your children can have. We’ve discussed implementing limits on the devices themselves, but it’s also important to be in charge of this. Don’t allow devices during meal times, for example, and make sure that devices aren’t used at least an hour before bedtime

No Ghanaian Woman Should Die from Cervical Cancer: Know Your Risk

Published

on

Historically, cervical cancer plagued women for a long time. A breakthrough came in  the mid-20th century when screening measures started being implemented.

The healthcare industry was hopeful that screening would drastically reduce cervical cancer incidence globally. Unfortunately, the disease is still prevalent worldwide, with sub-Saharan Africa bearing the burden of the disease. In Ghana, cervical cancer is the second most frequent cancer seen in women. Every year 2797 women in Ghana are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 1699 die from the disease.

In many cervical cancer cases, there are no early stage signs and symptoms. The cancer develops in the cells lining awoman’s cervix (the entrance to the uterus from the vagina) and is almost always linked to infection with high-risk Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – an extremely common virus transmitted through sexual contact.

 

Advanced-stage cervical cancer may have  like vaginal bleeding and unusual discharge, women often dismiss them as normal menstrual cycle-related events, or self-diagnose as another infection.

Women are recommended to always look out for bleeding during or after sex, or in between menstrual periods, pain during or after sex, changes in vaginal discharge, or pain in lower back or pelvis. These may be signs of more advanced-stage cervical cancer. It is important to note that having these symptoms does not necessarily mean you have cervical cancer;  you should however get them checked out by your doctor.The good news is that cervical cancerdoes not have to advance to this late stage. It can be detected early through regular screening, and successfully treated.

 

Screening for cervical cancer involves a pap smear or an HPV test, or both. A pap smear, also known as a pap test checks for the presence of pre-cancerous cervical cells. An HPV test checks for infection with certain high-risk variants of the human papillomavirus, which cause cervical cells to become pre-cancerous and develop into cervical cancer. If an HPV test determines that a woman is at high risk for cervical cancer, additional screening, like a pap smear, and a colposcopy ( visual examination of cervix) are recommended. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that women 26 years and above should get screened for high-risk HPV at least once every 5 years.

 

Thanks to Yemaachi Biotech, an African cancer research company based in Ghana, there is an affordable, accessible and easy-to-use test that will detail women’s level of risk for HPV-mediated cervical cancer. The Sheba HPV Testenables women to collect their own samples discretely at home, and drop them off at a conveniently located collection point for HPV testing at Yemaachi’s advanced molecular diagnostic laboratory. Detailed results are returned via email within 72 hours of drop-off.

Women are recommended to share their HPV test results with their physicians or other healthcare workers, especially in the event that a high-risk variant is detected, for further guidance on further testing or treatment.

When diagnosed early, cervical cancer is one of the most successfully treatable forms of cancer. Early detection saves lives.

Ghanaians and resident foreigners no longer require full COVID-19 vaccination before entering the country

Published

on

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has announced some changes to the guidelines for Ghanaians entering the country through the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

Per the earlier modification implemented during the yuletide last year, persons aged 18 years and above, arriving in Ghana from December 12, 2021, were to provide proof of full vaccination.

But addressing pressmen on Wednesday, Director-General of GHS, Dr. Patrick Kumah-Aboagye explained that the directive has been reviewed to make it more lenient.

Now, unvaccinated or partially vaccinated Ghanaians and resident foreigners have been “exempted from the requirement of full vaccination before traveling to Ghana.”

He made this comment at the Ministry of Information where the press conference was held.

GHS revises Covid-19 travel guidelines for Ghanaian travelers at KIA
Dr. Kumah-Aboagye explained that persons who will be affected by the review are expected to take the vaccination on arrival at KIA.

In this regard, persons who refuse to accept the jab will be forced to go on mandatory 7-day quarantine at their own cost.

This, according to the GHS Director-General, forms part of measures to reduce the effects of the fourth wave of the pandemic in the country.
