Mr Bitcoin - How I Became A Millionaire At 21 (Paperback): Mpho Dagada Mr Bitcoin - How I Became A Millionaire At 21 (Paperback)
Mpho Dagada
R195 R155 Discovery Miles 1 550 Save R40 (21%) Within 4 - 10 working days

Most of the time, the road to riches is a closely guarded secret, until now. Jacana Media presents Mpho Dagada, one such young, self-made millionaire who in his memoir, Mr Bitcoin, shares his story of triumph and failure. He tells his story from the beginning: being brought up by business-minded and accomplished grandparents who planted in him the seeds of what it means to be successful in business.

Mpho Dagada’s interest in Bitcoin was ignited when he was in his first year at the University of Johannesburg in 2013 after opening his own laundry and cleaning service company. He invested his profits from this company in Bitcoin. He currently owns a logistics company, a chain of fast food restaurants and is in the process of developing the first black-owned cryptocurrency exchange platform.

This book is both motivational and practical, examining the errors and pitfalls that Dagada had to go through in his business pursuits. These included falling for Ponzi schemes like Kipi and losing his money on more than one occasion. Through these many lows were lessons of great value which ultimately led to the endless possibilities that Bitcoin presents for those interested in creating wealth through trading cryptocurrencies and running a successful business.

Dagada is confident in the viability of Bitcoin and ascertains that "we will never understand the money of the future without learning how money came about in the first place. Blockchain and Bitcoin are now pioneering a new online financial world. Cryptocurrencies will replace fiat money in the end, as they are faster, better and more convenient than all the earlier forms of currency."

Late one evening, investigative journalist Bastian Obermayer receives an anonymous message offering him access to secret data. Through encrypted channels, he then receives documents revealing how the president of Argentina has sequestered millions of dollars of state money for private use. This is just the beginning.

Obermayer and fellow Suddeutsche journalist Frederik Obermaier find themselves immersed in the secret world where complex networks of shell companies help to hide people who don't want to be found. Faced with the largest data leak in history, they activate an international network of journalists to follow every possible line of enquiry. Operating in the strictest secrecy for over a year, they uncover cases involving prime ministers, dictators, kings, oligarchs, princelings, sports officials, big banks, arms smugglers, mafiosi, child prostitution rings, diamond miners, art dealers and celebrities.

The real-life thriller behind the story of the century, The Panama Papers is an intense, unputdownable account that proves, once and for all, that there exists a small elite living by a different set of rules and blows their secret world wide open.

Discover a structured, applied approach to behavioral finance with the first academic text of its kind--Ackert/Deaves' BEHAVIORAL FINANCE: PSYCHOLOGY, DECISION MAKING, AND MARKETS. This comprehensive text--ideal for today's behavioral finance elective--links finance theory and practice to human behavior.

The book clearly explains what behavioral finance indicates about observed market outcomes as well as how psychological biases potentially impact the behavior of managers. Readers see, first-hand, the implications of behavioral finance on retirement, pensions, education, debiasing, and client management. This book spends a significant amount of time examining how behavioral finance can be used by practitioners today. Readers utilize theory and applications in every chapter with a wide variety of end-of-chapter exercises, discussion questions, simulations and experiments that reinforce the book's applied approach.

Wealth is about more than just money. But how can we come to grips with our financial situation at a time when no one seems to have enough? The authors of this book believe that the answer lies beyond the balance sheet, in the mind, heart and spirit of the individual investor.

How Much Is Enough? provides a framework for the reader to find the right balance between their time, money and happiness in order to achieve financial security and personal well-being. Through a holistic approach to wealth management, based on the premise that money is only one element in the overall chemistry of a happy life, readers will learn how to: overcome the challenges that the brain’s hard-wiring and the environment place on personal health and well-being; plan and invest to achieve personal goals and aspirations; become happier and avoid wealth-destroying behaviour to improve investment results; and help their kids achieve financial security and assume financial responsibility.

Combining the latest economic theory and behavioural research with compelling stories of those who have found peace beyond their bank accounts, including Warren Buffett, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, Raymond Ackerman, Bill Gates and Patrice Motsepe, How Much Is Enough? is the perfect antidote to our acquisitive, materialistic times and a must-read for anyone who wants both financial wealth and personal well-being. Find happiness, and wealth will follow…

The Zimbabwe Stock Exchange (ZSE) is one of the last remaining manual call-over stock exchanges in the world. It is a contradictory and anachronistic place, in which, each day for forty-five minutes, twenty traders haggle across wooden desks, dealing mainly in agricultural and mineral commodities. The ZSE seems to have been left behind by the rest of the world, but some argue that its traders are the unsung heroes of the Zimbabwean economy who can be credited with keeping things afloat during the extraordinary years of hyperinflation. The ZSE is soon to be renovated and its systems digitised and automated. This means that the traders will become redundant, their place in history forgotten, and the odd aesthetic of the space in which they work will be lost. Lisa King has been photographing at the ZSE since 2011. Her project is a reflection on the physical and symbolic space that it occupies in Zimbabwe. It is also a portrait of the people who participate in this rare form of exchange. Her photographs explore the anachronistic environment of the ZSE and, along with Sean Christie’s incisive essay, suggest that the ZSE is a reminder of the ways in which technology reflects transformations in socio-political landscapes. Once the ZSE has disappeared, the book … Sometimes I Make Money One Day of the Week will be one of the few documents that record and reflect on this unique, history-making space.

Since the 1950s, Warren Buffett and his partners have backed some of the twentieth century's most profitable, trendsetting companies. But how did they know they were making the right investments? What did Buffet and his partners look for in an up-and-coming company, and how can others replicate their approach? A gift to Buffett followers who have long sought a pattern to the investor's success, Inside the Investments of Warren Buffett presents the most detailed analysis to date of Buffett's long-term investment portfolio. Yefei Lu, an experienced investor, starts with Buffett's interest in the Sanborn Map Company in 1958 and tracks nineteen more of his major investments in companies like See's Candies, the Washington Post, GEICO, Coca-Cola, US Air, Wells Fargo, and IBM. Accessing partnership letters, company documents, annual reports, third-party references, and other original sources, Lu pinpoints what is unique about Buffett's timing, instinct, use of outside knowledge, and postinvestment actions, and he identifies what could work well for all investors in companies big and small, domestic and global. His substantial chronology accounts for broader world events and fluctuations in the U.S. stock market, suggesting Buffett's most important trait may be the breadth of his expertise.

About the Book:

High-frequency traders have been called many things--from masters of the universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even predators. Everyone in the business of investing has an opinion of speed traders, but how many really understand how they operate? The shadow people of the investing world, today's high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile--until now.

In "The Speed Traders," Edgar Perez, founder of the prestigious business networking community Golden Networking, opens the door to the secretive world of high-frequency trading (HFT). Inside, prominent figures of HFT drop their guard and speak with unprecedented candidness about their trade.

Perez begins with an overview of computerized trading, which formally began on February 8, 1971, when NASDAQ launched the world's first electronic market with 2,500 over-the-counter stocks and which has evolved into the present-day practice of making multiple trades in a matter of microseconds. He then picks the brains of today's top players. Manoj Narang (Tradeworx), Peter van Kleef (Lakeview Arbitrage), and Aaron Lebovitz (Infinium Capital Management) are just a few of the luminaries who decided to break their silence and speak openly to Perez. Virtually all of the expertise available from the world of speed trading is packed into these pages.

You'll get insight from HFT's most influential trailblazers on the important issues, including: The basics of launching an HFT platform The important role speed traders play in providing market liquidity The real story behind the "flash crash" of May 2010 Emerging global HFT markets M&A and consolidation among the world's biggest exchanges

"The Speed Traders" is the most comprehensive, revealing work available on the most important development in trading in generations. High-frequency trading will no doubt play an ever larger role as computer technology advances and the global exchanges embrace fast electronic access.

Essential reading for regulators and investors alike, "The Speed Traders" explains everything there is to know about how today's high-frequency traders make millions--one cent at a time.
