    General insurance What will be the fate of the insured and the insurance company?

    I am not sure but I think the insurance company has nothing to do with the ransom. Even if the insurance policy belongs to the hostage the ransom is the concern of the family of the hostage. When the hostage is killed then that is the time that the insurance company will come in to check on the...

    Crypto Burning of cryptocurrencies.

    I still cannot comprehend the reason for burning. If I have a billion coin with the price of 50 in the market, how much will the price increase if I would burn 100 million worth? Will the price increase compensate for the value of the burned coin? In another forum a reply said that the burned...

    Traditional advertising How Buy One Get One Free Marketing Works

    The most common trick I know to afford the promo of buy-1-take-1 is the higher price. It is not easy to sell 2 items for the price of 1 because that is financial suicide.

    Traditional advertising Difference Between Brand Ambassador and Influencer

    Fish farming is not a simple business because you need to know very well how to care for the fish. Usually the fish pond owner would buy the small fish called fingerlings or the smallest fries.

    What is the occupation of your brother? I am curious why your brother said that the Bitcoin is affecting the US dollar.

    What changes do you want to see in Bitcoin in the future??

    I have not heard of a Bitcoin ATM here and although I know there are investors but not really popular like in the US.
