We all are aware of what CryptoCurrencies are. These are the virtual form of money transfer used by a huge number of people around the world. The NEON Exchange is very safe and secure for transactions and also has many other benefits included too. These are more used because of the low transaction fees than the other forms of money transfers like the Banks and wire transactions. Also, it is very easy to use and get through with the procedure of usage. Also, you can easily track around all the transactions made throughout the world by the Bitcoin software as all of these transactions are saved and noted down in an online ledger for future use.

Bitcoins are the most well known and used of all the currencies but many of us do not know that there are many other currencies available as well other than the Bitcoin. Some of these are listed down below.

  1. Litecoin
  2. Ethereum
  3. Monero
  4. Zcash
  5. Bancor
  6. EOS
  7. Tezos
  8. Verdict
  9. PPCoin

All these CryptoCurrencies are also used in various parts of the world and in a huge number of made transactions. These also possess the same features as the Bitcoin and are very easy to use as well and can be exchanged with any of the World Currency.

The Risk Factor

There a number of things that can go wrong or can affect your profits while dealing with different CryptoCurrencies including the litecoin, Ethereum. First of all, we need to be aware that it is not completely hack-resistant and your money can be lost while these online thefts. Also if your system crashes you tend to lose all the money in case there is no backup taken. The fluctuating exchange rates of the currency is a matter of concern as it can vary day to day even in each hour of the day making it difficult to assume that if it would be a profitable transaction or not. You cannot be sure of the fact that the investment made will surely be full of profit or will be the other CryptoCurrency loss. Many of the countries deny the usage of Virtual money and that is the main factor limiting its usage. Also, these are far above from any kind of government influence that makes it very hard to report the frauds and thefts in all.

Final words to consider

A huge number of people are starting to use the bitcoin nowadays, and broadening their mindsets to its usage and benefits. As it is not an authorized currency in any part of the world but still can be stored in an investment mode. It can be easily exchanged with any of the currencies in the world on the ongoing rates at that time.  The approach of CryptoCurrency is a slow one but still steady and is growing on a regular basis. But you need to make sure that you are very well aware of all the knowledge and technicalities behind it, to avoid future loses.

Green house gases are created by all living things, but as we farm livestock to meet our meat eating demands we also have increased the amount of gases that are making climate change worse.

WHAT: All living things produce waste products in some manner; cows, sheep, chickens and fish do so in much the same ways we do (waste liquid, solids and gases). Although a completely natural process humanity has domesticated and mass produced animals for our consumption since our early history. As we have put aside large areas of land for animal farming those waste products has naturally also increase.

HOW: However as with most things we do, farming creates green house gases (GHG)that contribute to global warming. These emissions come from various sources, such as the the food and water needed for these animals. The feed itself needs to be farmed and the machinery used to do this will create CO2 and the land used will release CO2 previously locked in the soils. Growing plants to feed animals also require significant amounts of fertilizer which if used irresponsibly can leak into the surround environment causing real trouble for local plants and animals often leading to biodiversity loss. Animals require a lot of water which requires machinery to store, pump and distribute it, and all that machinery will use electricity that is generated from fossil fuels.

The animals themselves produce mountains of waste products, the most concerning of which is methane. Methane is a GHG which traps 100 times more heat over 5 years than CO2 does. In countries like Australia’s with a large cattle industry GHG emissions from agriculture contributes to 18% of their emissions (2013) compared to the UK’s 9% (2011).

So it stands to reason that reducing our meat consumption will help combat climate change in a big way. A study from Oxford University showed that a vegan diet is 2.5 times less CO2 intensive than a high meat diet; but I think it is unreasonable to ask everyone to turn to veganism. What we can all do is go meat free at least once a week, not only is eating more vegetable better for your health you will be making a real different in your carbon emission. Or you could even trying going for a Mediterranean diet which is high in vegetables and light on meat:
