Did you know that there are over one thousand cryptocurrency specifications in existence? Decentralised and transparent Blockchain technologies make these digital assets possible. Blockchain is a global public ledger which instantly automatically records and verifies digital transactions irrespective of geographical location, and is considered tamper-proof. When a transaction takes place, everyone is aware of it. Financial institutions have been seriously looking into its applications and many other centralised industries and organisations are keen to explore how they might harness the innovative power of this technology - its applications are almost endless and it is changing the way independent businesses collaborate with one another. It saves time, reduces costs and human errors. Read how this 21-year-old entrepreneur is using it to revolutionise the Shipping industry.

Birkbeck Careers & Employability's curator insight, November 23, 11:27 AM
Could you tell a  Google Panda from a Google Penguin or a Google Pigeon from a Google Hummingbird? These are Google's organic, chameleon-like Search Algorithms.  They will analyse words, match searches, rank useful pages,  take in context and then put all the pieces of the puzzle together and deliver the best results for a search. 
If you are interested in optimising your business website for online searches, visibility is everything; if you are not out there in front of your customers, your competitors will be - customers won't even know you exist. One way to ensure your businesses longevity  is through your SEO ranking factors. It really is all about location, location, location. As an entrepreneur, you have probably already asked yourself just how long it will take your business to rank on top of Google  (as well as  other search engines!). The answer really is it depends on many different factors. Chris Parsons helps you cut through all the digital fog and gives you a heads up on the things you need to be aware of to help you increase traffic to your site and establish your brand .

Unless you have been living on a desert island, you’ll probably have heard the term Bitcoin discussed by entrepreneurs and investors. A cryptocurrency with a controversial history, its creator goes by the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. There is no physical currency; individual Bitcoins are created with computer code by a community of people that anyone can join who “mine” bitcoins in a distributed network using a freely available mathematical formula from open source software programmes. Its popularity and value is increasing exponentially. There are also people who believe it is a form of investment mania; a  bubble ready to burst whose popularity parallels disruption in business and cultural institutions reflecting the current Zeitgeist. What do you think?
