About Shenzhen Visa On Arrival

October 19th, 2018 by topstart

The Shenzhen visa on arrival enables travelers from most countries, including Australia and Canada to stay in Shenzhen for 5 days without applying for a regular visa. During the 5 days, foreign tourists eligible for the VOA cannot leave the Shenzhen urban area and countryside. The five-day VOA is a sticker pasted on the passport like a regular visa. Hence, there must be at least one blank page in the applicant’s passport.

Lo Wu isn’t the only place where you can get the Visa On Arrival for Shenzhen, as Pesky said, you can get it at Lok Ma Chau and Shenzhen Bay as well. The other two crossings are even faster than Lo Wu with usually no line at all – been in and out in less than 5 minutes many times.

The general price is 168 RMB for most nationals (although the price can vary based on nationality) i.e for a UK passport holder it will be around 314 RMB. The fee must be paid there at the booth and has to be local currency (RMB), you will easily find foreign currency exchange windows at the border crossings, in case you don’t have RMB on you.

Technically this visa is only valid for visits to the Shenzhen area, but I don’t know how they will know if you travel to other areas of China, as long as you leave through the same port. Keep in mind, while you can travel to other parts of China, you may be reprimanded if caught and asked to show your visa by the authorities. Many tourists go to Guangzhou for example and come back since there is no passport check to travel domestically via bus/train. Air travel most certainly will require passport check.

In case you have a relatively new passport, bring your old one as well. Stamps to some countries (such as Turkey, Pakistan, Iran) will probably be an issue while getting a visa on arrival.

In coordination with the Chinese Foreign Ministry in Hong Kong and travelers real-life experiences, the information here will be kept updated. If your experience differs from the advice below, please drop us a line and let us know so we can issue an update. .

Now, many major cities in China such as Shanghai, Hangzhou, Beijing, and Tianjin have had a 144-hour (6-day) visa-free transit policy for passengers from 53 countries. It is possible for you to enjoy a visa-free tour in China.

Getting a tourist visa in Hong Kong takes from 1 to 3 days and costs HK$150-1,100. A list of costs is available. Macau’s visa office is less crowded and the hotels are a bit cheaper, but it takes just as long. In general, only single and double entry visas are granted to visitors without HKID cards, although foreigners with previous entries into the mainland and Hong Kong student or work visa holders have been known to be approved for multiple entries.

To confirm – this is not for the 5-day visa that I have written about. This is for a full Chinese visa, which this article doesn’t cover. Gustavo is right in saying that to get a full Chinese visa, you do need to apply for a visa beforehand.

Yes, you are not allowed to visit other cities on a Shenzhen VOA. Like your trip itinerary said above, you need a China visa, a single entry is enough.

Temporary visas for Shenzhen are issued for tourism purposes only. In the article below, we go into further details and update the information offered in our previous article on business visas, as well as give answers to the following questions.

You can visit one of the numerous travel agents in Hong Kong who will assist you and forward your application and visa to the Chinese government. You can apply for most any visa type through this method but again, it’s still advised to get your visa in your own country. Of course, the agent will also take a fee on top of the visa fee. In most cases, processing takes four days although you can pay extra for a rush service. In most cases with these visas, you will be required to cross the Shenzhen border at Luohu.

If you intend to apply for a visa at the border of Shenzhen and Hong Kong, or Zhuhai and Macau, and you held a Chinese visa in a recently replaced passport, you may be asked to present your previous passport and Chinese visa. If you have visited China previously, you may be denied a visa on arrival if you are unable to produce your previous China visa. Some visas issued in Hong Kong or at Hong Kong-Macau-Chinese mainland border crossings are valid for limited travel to designated areas only, such as Shenzhen, Zhuhai or other areas in Guangdong Province. It’s illegal to use these permits to travel to other parts of China. Carefully check your visa requirements and limitations.

Best Bitcoin CFD Brokers

October 19th, 2018 by topstart

Bitcoin CFD trading is fairly easy to learn and can be profitable from the first trade. With millions of traders worldwide looking to jump on the bitcoin bandwagon, you can set yourself apart from the pack by taking time to understand how the bitcoin market works and to learn the technical factors that push the prices higher or lower. Setting up a Free demo CFD Trading account with one of the Best Bitcoin CFD Brokers and practicing there before investing with real money can help protect you from losses. Though you may feel pressured to enter the market NOW when things are hot, it’s worthwhile to take some time to practice so that you can get a feel for the flow, as cryptocurrency trading, and bitcoin trading specifically, doesn’t act like fiat currency trading. Taking a few days to teach yourself can protect your account in the long run.
Bitcoin exchanges are platforms where you actually buy Bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies when you trade them against fiat money. So when you make a fiat money deposit, set a buy order for BTC and then see a BTC balance in your account, you have actually bought Bitcoins and can withdraw them to your home wallet, if you wish.

FXOpen is a well-known name in the forex market. The FX broker is registered and regulated in New Zealand. The firm follows standard AML and KYC laws, like most regulated forex brokers. FxOpen offers a variety of different funding and withdrawal options that a lot of the bitcoin exchanges don’t have. These include debit cards, credit cards, Skrill, Neteller, and Payza. In addition, the company also accepts three cryptocurrencies for deposit and withdrawal; Bitcoin, Litecoin and Namecoin.

Unlike other CFDs broker comparison sites, you won’t find unregulated or blacklisted brokers on our site. We proactively keep our information up to date and ensure that our comparisons are easy to use.

Active traders looking to speculate on Bitcoin over the short or medium term may find that trading CFD/derivatives on Bitcoin using an online forex broker will provide them with 24hour trading, potentially lower margin, and the ability to go either long or short. Because of counter-party risk, choosing a broker is just as important as finding one with the best trading tools or commission rates.

The list of CFD and Forex brokers seems to be infinite. However, only a few of them provide decent conditions for cryptocurrency trading. We know that it’s difficult to make the right choice, which is why we gathered the list of the best brokers that allow cryptocurrency trading. We hope to save you time and money.

Like Plus 500, Avatrade is a CFD trading broker based in the UK. It’s been around for about ten years now, and in that time has grown to become one of the biggest CFD brokers in Europe, with around 200,000 registered clients who collectively place over 2,000,000 trades every month.

We hope, you managed to pick your favorite from the recommended best CFD brokers. If you are still uncertain which the best CFD broker in 2018 is, this little summary might provide further clarity.

Bitcoin exchanges are also risky. Let’s say, you go to a bitcoin exchange, deposit €200, and you convert €100 to Bitcoin. So how are you exposed?.

Bitcoins can also be purchased through online exchanges such as,, etc. If you are a forex trader, the best option would be which has its own MetaTrader platform.

Day trading with CFDs is a popular strategy. From pattern day trading in the US today traders in Europe and beyond, the leverage and costs of CFD trading, make it a viable option for active traders and intraday trades. This page provides an introductory guide, plus tips and strategy for using CFDs, and offers a list of the best brokers for CFD day trading in 2018.

If you decide to use exchanges instead of forex brokers, there are some great exchanges you can benefit from using. Coinbase is probably one of the largest exchanges for the cryptocurrency. Another great one is Kraken, it was founded in 2011 and has a lot of beneficial reasons to use it. These are just a couple of the endless cryptocurrency exchanges on the market.

If you trade Bitcoin through a spread bet, then you don’t have to pay capital gains on your profits. Of course, if you lose money you can’t offset it against investment profits.

CFD trading is quite similar to forex trading. When trading on the platform, you select the instrument you wish to trade and enter your order. Just like in other trades, if you think the price of a certain instrument, e.g. crude oil, will increase, you’ll want to buy the crude oil CFD. The same goes the other way – if you predict the value will go down you sell the CFD.

The second are the brokers who are not licensed or regulated. Every financial company must be licensed by the government. Popular brokers are licensed in Australia by ASIC or in the United Kingdom by the FCA. If you go with a broker who promises to make you rich, and they are not licensed, you can read the complaints page now, so you understand what you will be dealing with.

Bitcoin is usually quoted against the US dollar — so when you buy bitcoin on an exchange, you are selling USD and buying bitcoin. If bitcoin’s price rises, then you can sell it for a profit because bitcoin is worth more USD than when you bought it. If bitcoin’s price falls, then you make a loss.

There is nothing worse than trying to navigate your way around the difficult software. Be sure to open up a free demo account and see for yourself how easy it is to place trades, open a chart, amend orders and receive timely news updates.

Cryptocurrency trading is fairly easy to learn and can be profitable from the first trade.

Taking a few days to teach yourself can protect your account in the long run.

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin are extremely volatile and can move or jump in price with no apparent reason due to lack of liquidity and ad-hoc news. There is little or no fundamental reasoning behind its pricing and as such trading CFDs in Bitcoin pose a significant risk to Retail Clients. While AxiTrader only quotes Bitcoin during the week, it can trade over the weekend, meaning there could be a significant price change between Friday and Monday. It should only, therefore, be traded by those clients with sufficient experience to understand that they risk losing all their investment, or more, in a short period of time, and only a very small part of their portfolio should be used.

If they then drop in value, you can buy 100 shares at the new, lower price, and return them back to your broker for a profit.

In effect, CFDs are financial derivatives that allow traders to take advantage of prices moving up (long positions) or prices moving down (short positions) on all underlying financial instruments. They are often used to speculate on markets. A CFD is a tool of leverage with its own potential profits and losses. It allows an investor to enter the global trading market without directly dealing with shares, indices, commodities or currency pairs. For example, when applied to equities, such a contract is an equity derivative that allows traders to speculate on share price movements, without the need for ownership of the underlying shares. CFDs may be traded like stocks, bonds, futures, commodities, indices, or currencies. CFDs are also known as contracts for difference.

CFDs were originally developed in the early 1990s in London as a type of equity swap that was traded on margin. The invention of the CFD is widely credited to Brian Keelan and Jon Wood, both of UBS Warburg, on their Trafalgar House deal in the early 90s.

CFDs are leveraged trading instruments; they are traded on margin. Instead of paying the full value for the underlying shares, you pay an initial margin to open the position and are required to maintain some minimum margin level for open positions at all times. You may be required to satisfy the margin calls at very short notice, especially in volatile markets. If you fail to top up your margin when required, you risk having your position liquidated at a loss.

This is the risk that the CFD provider fails to meet a payment obligation due to you, for example, if your CFD provider becomes insolvent. As a CFD buyer, you have no recourse to the underlying shares as you have not actually bought the underlying shares.

But as it’s out of hours you can’t access a price, so by the time markets open the next morning the share price might be up 20 percent and you might have lost significantly. “But you can’t do anything about it,” says Browne.

Shortly afterward, the price of ABC rises to £1.65. You need to close out to meet your obligation to the lender by returning the same number of shares. You buy 2,000 shares of ABC for £3,300 (2,000 x £1.65). Your broker then returns these to the lender, who accepts the same quantity of shares.

About Dogecoin

October 18th, 2018 by topstart

What are the differences between the two? You have to sync with the blockchain to use Dogecoin. This means you need the Dogecoin “ledger” to use Dogecoin. MultiDoge is a “light” wallet. It syncs with the blockchain by “skimming” through the blockchain, providing fast sync times. Dogecoin Core, on the other hand, is a “full” wallet. It syncs by downloading it, providing a solid-working Dogecoin wallet.

Compared with other cryptocurrencies, Dogecoin had a fast initial coin production schedule: 100 billion coins were in circulation by mid-2015, with an additional 5.256 billion coins every year after that. As of 30 June 2015[update], the 100 billionth Dogecoin had been mined. While there are few mainstream commercial applications, the currency has gained traction as an Internet tipping system, in which social media users grant Dogecoin tips to other users for providing exciting or noteworthy content.[8] Dogecoin is referred to as an altcoin.

Unlike deflationary cryptocurrencies which have a limit on the number of coins that can be produced, there is no limit to how many Dogecoins can be created, which makes it an inflationary coin. Dogecoin was initially to have a limit of 100 billion coins, which would already have been far more coins than the top digital currencies were allowing. In February 2014, Dogecoin founder Jackson Palmer announced that that limit would be removed and there would be no cap, which should have the result of the constant reduction of its inflation rate over a long time.[81].

Despite the fact that Jackson Palmer receiving a name-drop from the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Dogecoin’s price and capitalization have remained pretty much the same over the past 24 hours, according to CoinMarketCap data. Still, early September was a success for the coin, as DOGE had seen a significant upswing since August 30, at one point going up by 135 percent in just three days.

A more convenient way to buy Dogecoin is to use a debit or credit card, or an online service such as Paypal or Google Wallet. If you use one of these methods, the price will be marked up a bit from the market price, but the convenience is often worth it. Be smart, and only work with reputable sellers! Examples of sites to buy Dogecoin with credit/debit/online wallets:

After downloading the wallet of your choice, make sure you back up your files on a USB drive or external hard drive. After you back it up, never delete the wallet.dat file!.

Dogecoin (DOGE) had a strong showing in Q3, jumping to the 20th position and at some point hitting the 18th position. But it is likely to hold on to these gains in this quarter? What are Dogecoin’s prospects in Q4? To determine its chances, one needs to look at its core fundamentals, market sentiment, and its price analysis. These three factors can help give a reasonable probability of the direction that Dogecoin is likely to take this quarter.

Initially, a different payout scheme was envisioned with block rewards being determined by taking the maximum compensation as per the block schedule and applying the result of a Mersenne Twister pseudo-random number generator to arrive at a number between 0 and the maximum reward. This was changed, starting with block 145,000, to prevent large pools from gaming the system and mining only high reward blocks. At the same time, the difficulty retargeting was also changed from four hours to once per block (every minute), implementing an algorithm courtesy of the DigiByte Coin development team, to lessen the impact of sudden increases and decreases of network hashing rate.

Suddenly the UK police were involved. After a three-year investigation, Kennedy faces multiple charges of fraud and money laundering. At a preliminary hearing in Bristol Crown Court on September 2017, he denied all allegations. A request for comment was sent to Kennedy’s Defence Lawyer, but we’ve yet to receive a response.

Alex Tomzack is a crypto-enthusiast and has been fascinated since first hearing about it. Loves technology, writing, culture while being a regular trader and holder of digital assets.

If Bitcoin does have a bullish run, this will likely result in bullish price action across the crypto market, but even so, there will still be the market leaders and the laggards. And we must also take into consideration that Bitcoin may continue to fall much lower from here.

In 2015, he bowed out of Dogecoin, leaving a core team behind. His reason? The “toxic community” that had encircled it and the stream of money that had seduced developers and speculators into thinking they’d reinvented the wheel. While that was all three years ago and he’s moved onto other things, he’s still horrified by its success, and wears the badge of spokesperson for Dogecoin reluctantly. When I asked about the recent Coinbase rumor, he answered, albeit hesitantly. “There’s no way of submitting all the legal documentation that Coinbase requires. It’s by no means likely that they’ll get it.”.

“It was always like a hobby project, like a side project thing,” says Palmer, who has kindly agreed to our interview just before he’s due up on stage, at Crypto Springs, earlier this month. “I made a lot of people rich, but I didn’t come away with any money. I get to tell people that I created Dogecoin, which is fun.”.

About Jackson Palmer

In the process, we’ve built a fun community of people who are passionate about the technology behind cryptocurrency, and I enjoy their shared objective thinking and skepticism about all of these projects. The channel has brought people together in pursuit of education, and I’m proud of that. Shout out to my subscribers and amazing supporters on Patreon!”.

Two days after the Battle of Antietam, Palmer was captured while scouting at the personal direction of McClellan, seeking information on any preparations by Lee’s army to cross the Potomac River back into Virginia. He was on the Confederate side of the river, again garbed in civilian clothes and accompanied by a local blacksmith and a person as his guides, attempting to recross to the Union side after midnight when he was captured by Confederate artillerymen sent to guard the dam he used for the crossing. When questioned, Palmer gave his name as “W.J. Peters,” and claimed to be an engineer on an inspection trip. He was interrogated by General William N. Pendleton, who thought he was a spy. He was detained and sent to Richmond, Virginia, with a rambling note from Pendleton that was ignored.

Palmer was set free in a prisoner exchange for a prominent Richmond citizen, recuperated two weeks, and rejoined his regiment in February 1863. During his period of imprisonment, the corps had become mutinous because of a failure to have officers appointed and other enlistment inducements it felt had not been honored. 212 troopers faced a court-martial and the possibility of going before a firing squad for refusing to fight in the Battle of Stone’s River. Palmer reorganized the regiment, personally appointed officers in whose abilities he had great trust, and had the charges against the confined soldiers dropped on the condition that they behaved going forward. The severely demoralized group of men rallied and distinguished themselves during the 1863 Tullahoma Campaign, the Battle of Chickamauga, the capture of Brig. Vance’s raiding cavalry and re-capture of 28 wagons of a foraging train in January 1864, and the Franklin–Nashville Campaign.[4].

Like bitcoin at that time, the initial novelty wore off, and DOGE went into a 2-3 year price slump. People who took their crypto business very seriously called its goofy logo, comic sans and Shiba-Inu memes a fad.

After the war, Palmer joined the Kansas-Pacific Railroad, which he helped bring to Denver in 1870. In Denver, Palmer married Mary Lincoln Mellon, and on their honeymoon, he saw a narrow-gauge railroad for the first time. He was impressed by its cheap cost, sharp turning radius and capacity to climb steep hills. Realizing that this kind of transportation met the challenges of Colorado’s mountainous landscape, Palmer, upon his return home, together with Dr. William Bell founded the Denver & Rio Grande Western Railroad. The first narrow-gauge railroad line was completed on October 21, 1871. It ran from Denver to what later became Colorado Springs, opening up trade between both municipalities as well as the rest of the country. In the early days, the rail line was essential for transporting gold and fuel from the Pikes Peak mines to Denver, which was rapidly becoming a hub of commerce. By ensuring that gold and coal from mines made it to market, Palmer’s railroad became an essential part of Colorado’s developing economy.

Young Palmer explained to Thomson that, from his observations in England, coal could replace wood as the railroad’s fuel source. The PRR was then in an “ecological” crisis, burning 60,000 cords (220,000 m³) of wood per year and rapidly stripping the right-of-way of all trees. The Pennsylvania Railroad became the first American railroad to convert to coal. Over the next four years, Palmer was most concerned with the problems of efficiency and power in combustion. Among his collaborators in experimental industrialism were the PRR vice president Thomas A. Scott, and Scott’s assistant, Andrew Carnegie, an immigrant from Scotland one year older than Palmer.
