CRYPTOCURRENCIES: A BLESSING OR A THREAT?

December 4, 2021

In 2008, a programmer or a group under the pseudonym ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ introduced a new electronic money system named Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a decentralized system that allows users to use the internet to perform transactions without relying on authorities or financial institutions. By doing so, Bitcoin challenges the most sacred of government monopolies. The notion of sovereignty is being pulled away from governments in ‘favor’ of individuals.

Cryptocurrency backers hope to create a world where money is completely disconnected from politics and not constrained by borders. After Bitcoin was introduced slowly other cryptocurrencies were introduced. Bitcoin is mainly used as a form of payment and has ‘limitations’ when it comes to upscaling. Therefore an alternative to Bitcoin was created, namely altcoins which are mostly funded by investors and have an unlimited potential. Besides bitcoin and altcoins there are also stable coins. The name itself suggests that it’s a stable asset whose price is pegged to fiat currency such as the Euro and dollar or to exchange-traded commodities such as silver and gold. Because they are tied to a legal asset they are not volatile.

FINANCIAL FREEDOM: FOLLOW OUR EXPERTS GAME CHANGING TIPS

Most people think being rich is synonymous with flaunting your wealth on social media. Expensive watches, bags and even new cars are exposed everyday. Unfortunately, social media is an illusion, which means that everything that sparkles is not gold.

You may be one of those people looking at your favourite influencers profiles and thinking: I wish I was ‘rich’ or this ‘successful’! While you wish you were as ‘rich’ as them, nothing says they attained financial freedom. They might spend their last penny on a bag trying to meet ends at the end of the month and not save or invest anything.

Isn’t this more important? To attain financial freedom so you can live a comfortable life– make money work for you instead of working harder to gain more money.

Financial freedom is attainable for anyone and you don’t need sums of money for it. What you need to do is to make money for yourself. Being rich doesn’t mean you have millions in your bank account. It basically means that you are able to lead a comfortable life with the standard of living that fits you. And, attaining that freedom is a long road. It’s likely something you cannot achieve in 5 years because it takes time and comes down to dealing consciously with your money and investing for the long term.

*NOTE: Due to the current raising COVID-19 infection number, a temporary lockdown is in effect from 22 November until 13 December. Travel to Austria for touristic purposes will only be possible again after this period. Find all current information here.

There is nothing better in winter, than enjoying a hot cup of coffee and a warm Apfelstrudel inside a nice cafe. Living in Vienna for nineteen years now, I am a Viennese by choice. Within all these years, I have visited almost all cafes in my hometown, and I know what I am talking about. Literally, I spent a lot of money in Viennese cafes and restaurants, and I don’t regret it, here is why?

From traditional coffee houses where waiters serve drinks in abundant surroundings, to the modern coffee shops, Vienna has one of the best coffee houses in Europe. One of the reasons why I love living in Vienna– it’s filled with truly charming Viennese coffee houses but also there are a lot of beautiful Cafes in Paris style, which I love.

ASTRO COUTURE: AN INTRODUCTION TO SIDERAL ASTROLOGY

November 23, 2021

Have you ever heard of sidereal astrology? When we read a magazine, newspaper or any other article about astrology, we know that the horoscopes are based on the tropical system – a system prevalent in the West and not sidereal astrology which is used by ancient cultures like Mayans, Egyptians and Vedic (Indian).

Both systems are true but the sidereal system is based on the current position of the constellations. This means that there is a 24 degree gap between the tropical and sidereal system and that your ascendant (the rising sign that was in the sky at the time of birth), sun, moon and even the positions of other planets differ from that in tropical.

PHOTO DIARY: RETHYMNO, CRETE

November 21, 2021

If you visit the Greek island, Crete– a day trip to Rethymno (or Rethymnon) is a must. It’s one of the best preserved medieval towns in Greece and was once a bastion of the Venetians who left a mighty legacy– the large Fortezza (fortress).

The town was also ruled by Turks for a time so you’ll find a scattering of Ottoman mosques, a Hamam peeping from behind 16th century buildings.

You can choose visiting Rethymno for a relax day on the nearby beaches, or explore the historic center and enjoy the hidden cafes in cute cobblestone streets.
