Zuckerberg ‘Facebook developing a cryptocurrency’

Published

on

Reports have it that Mark Zuckerberg has Facebook developing a cryptocurrency that they are planning to launch in a dozen of countries by the first quarter of 2020. Their cryptocurrency would be called GlobalCoin and it could be unveiled by the end of this year. BBC says Zuckerberg has even met with Mark Carney, Governor to the bank of England, and discussed the matter with him. This will require Zuckerberg to improve too much on his call for trust from customers as he has had several privacy issues with Facebook.

The idea of cryptocurrency sound new though it has existed for quite a long time. Facebook wants to enable customers to do online purchases in an easier way even to those without bank accounts. Facebook will experience the hard times in the use of this cryptocurrency due to the unclear understanding of the concept by a big part of the general public they are targeting.

This, however, is not the first time Facebook is venturing into the virtual payment systems. They had attempted implementing one they called Facebook Credits in 2011 for in-app purchases. In 2012, they had to abandon the idea due to lack of interest and use by the public. Facebook is also said to have hired David Marcus from PayPal back in May of 2018. Despite all these, Facebook will have to be more attractive to customers and assure them of secure systems in this digital world.

New sound proof beach party in Kilifi county

Published

on

Kilifi County issued a warning notice to club owners and investors over loud noise at the beach. The county said that the law does not allow clubs to play sounds higher than 35 decibels.

This was received with a lot of rejection noticed during the meeting with county officials. Angela Chisemwa, the general manager of Rosada Beach Club, said they were not opposed to the laws but it would force them to close businesses if implemented as no one would go to a beach party with low sound.

“If my facility is at the beach, how do I put sound proof on the beach?’’ she asked.

Jackson Maina of Papa Remo said they organise beach parties every Thursday which attract tourists from their two resorts Seven Islands and Krystall Bay which have a capacity of 300 people.

Clients from all over Watamu and even Malindi come to enjoy music during the beach party at Papa Remo.

“If we lower the sound of music we will lose all these clients,’’ he said.

Alex Zissimatos, the General Manager of Plan Hotels Malindi, said the tourist numbers had gone down by over 50 per cent in the last decade and is now picking up.

He warned that such restrictions would negatively affect the sector.

Local leader Jamaal Shee in Malindi, said the laws will affect residents who depend on the tourism sector since they will lose thir jobs.

Other coast counties such as Mombasa have spared three specific days for beach parties while Kwale has only two for beach parties.

“If you threaten us with heavy penalties and we close down the facilities, those who will suffer are the locals,” Shee said.

Mr Njuguna says that before the end of 2018, Bella Safaris intends to drive up domestic demand for international tours among the elites, a growing demographic fueled by expanding middle-income status in the country.

Christmas is undoubtedly one of the most magical periods during the year at Bella Safaris.  In addition to being the busiest and most crowded period, it is the time when tour enthusiasts enjoy amazing offers on trips to Europe and Asia with their loved ones.

Bella Safaris allows Kenyans to experience all of the “must-do” activities on their plans during their free time. The itinerary allows customers to enjoy many other holiday festivities available in different parts of the world at very affordable rates.

According to data from the Ministry of Tourism, there was a tourism growth of 14.6 percent last year. This means there will be a large number of Kenyans looking for international holidays. This has inspired Mr George to plug into the market and offer something unique for the Kenyans who want to have fun and great experience abroad.

Apart from international tour packages, Bella Safaris also offers car hire services tailor-made for locals from all walks of life. “We have everything for everyone but mostly we want to offer great experience and uniqueness,” said Mr George.
