    Published: 27 April, 2018 seen 439 Investments

    April 2018, marks a small one year anniversary since I've been investing in the Baltic Stock market, more precisely - Baltic dividend stocks.  I decided to invest in the Baltic stocks, once I found I'm too short to open Interactive Brokers account for buying US stocks (required opening minimum is $10,000). Buying Baltic stocks from local brokers (SEB bank) is relatively cheap (about 3 EUR commission per trade). Back in April 2017 I started to acquire first stocks in the Baltics, now a year later I've built a humble (~EUR 7,800 worth) Baltic stock portfolio. In general I could sell of all of…

    Published: 21 April, 2018 seen 58

    it was one of the sunniest days in early April 2018, we opted in for a Dubulti - Majori (Jūrmala, Latvia) lazy hiking trip. The route is easy and distance is pretty short.  As usual - I was equipped with a camera and captured some moments. The inspiration for this title I took from here: Lazy Day in Beach (Torremolinos, Spain) In fact, that is a thing I have been thinking a lot lately - Jūrmala could be developed in a style of Spain's Costa del Sol resort towns. I actually met more folks in April at Jūrmala beach than I met in Spain's resort towns. Sure there are no palms in Jūrmala, but they…

    I didn't actually notice when did happened the previous price lowering for HashFlare cloud mining contracts, but yesterday I noticed the price for some of the contracts is actually cut by half. In my previous April 2018 HashFlare.io review I concluded, that cloud mining doesn't look any more attractive (at least in April), now with such steep price lowering, I believe it's a good time to revise my previous thoughts. On the other hand, new price levels apply only for the newly purchased contracts, previously purchased contracts aren't affected. Back in the December 2017, the price for 1TH/s…

Back in 2014, I was concerned about GEL exchange rates because I had some deposits in Georgian National currency. Now in 2018 I don't feel anymore too much concerned, because I have diversified a lot across multiple currencies.  I stopped any deposits in GEL back around 2015, after losing some 20% in a month, back then I thought I will never invest again in national currencies (Except USD or EUR), with the start with 2017 I started to invest again in GEL currency, this…

Now, despite this is a seven-fold increase in less than a four months - my earnings made on Hashflare.io have decreased actually.
