Bitcoin just hit $13,000. Here’s why I’d still buy UK shares to get rich

Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images Paul Summers | Monday, 26th October, 2020 Bitcoin is on the move. Again. Over the last month, the cryptocurrency has climbed a stonking 22% in value. Over the weekend, it breached the $13,000 mark for the first since January 2018. So, what’s behind this latest price rise?5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Bitcoin goes mainstreamThe chief reason for Bitcoin’s recent positive momentum looks to be news that online payments system provider PayPal will soon permit its customers to buy and sell the cryptocurrency (along with Ethereum, Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash) using their accounts.But there’s more. As well as trading Bitcoin, customers will also be allowed to use it to pay for things they buy through PayPal. As you might expect, this development is being rolled out in the US first with other countries set to follow. PayPal isn’t the first company of its kind to offer clients the ability to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, but it’s arguably the best known. Whether this new feature will be popular with existing customers, however, is hard to say. But as a PayPal customer myself, I’ll definitely be sticking to my strategy of growing rich through buying quality UK stocks instead.Why I’d still buy UK shares There are several reasons.Unlike Bitcoin, shares give me part-ownership in a business. The valuation of this business is driven by profits growth. Bitcoin’s price, by contrast, is based purely on sentiment. It’s only possible to make money from owning the cryptocurrency if someone is willing to pay more for it.Unlike Bitcoin, many UK shares pay dividends for as long as people own them. True, some companies have needed to rein-in their cash returns in the wake of the pandemic, but many have now been reinstated. Once the coronavirus storm has passed and the economy pulls itself out of recession, I have no doubt the UK stock market will be a great source of income once again.  Unlike Bitcoin, the London Stock Exchange is also highly regulated and secure. The Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) also provides cover for investments to the tune of £85,000 per person per firm. Platforms such as Hargreaves Lansdown, AJ Bell and Interactive Investor must abide by specific rules too. These include ringfencing client money from creditors and administrators.  Fund managers must do the same. In sharp contrast, there have been many examples of traders’ digital Bitcoin wallets being hacked. No guaranteesThere are no guarantees with cryptocurrencies. Naturally, there are no guarantees in equity investing either. March’s market crash showed that shares can suffer huge falls now and then.Having said this, the volatility of Bitcoin is on another level. Ask anyone who bought some at the end of 2017. Shortly after, the bubble burst in spectacular fashion. A single coin fell from near $20,000 in value to less than $3,000 by December 2018. This example makes buying and selling Bitcoin more akin to gambling on penny stocks — something I certainly wouldn’t get involved in. PayPal has said that it will educate its users about how cryptocurrencies work, but I’m sceptical as to how much it will emphasise the downside risk. Holders of Bitcoin may be having a better 2020 than most investors but I know where I’d put my money if I wanted a safer route to riches. It’s shares every time for me. Paul Summers has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Sketch Architects have refurbished a terraced home in South West London by adding a spacious, bright rear extension with large glass door extending into the garden and a usable, playful basement room. All renovations aim to improve the lives of those that live within them and this project aimed to create a more liveable and usable space for a growing family. Save this picture!© Adam ScottSave this picture!Proposed – Ground floor planSave this picture!© Adam ScottThe brief presented to Sketch Architects asked that the available space within this small terraced house was maximised. The existing building had already been extended with a partial side return, but each space was very separate from the next and the layout wasn’t working for the young family who lived there. Each small space felt disconnected from the next. They asked Sketch Architects to investigate options that created a larger sense of space, utilising and increasing the existing basement, whilst maintaining a connection to the rest of the ground floor. Save this picture!© Adam ScottTo achieve this Sketch Architects introduced a double height space in the centre of the house, shifting the location of the stairs to allow light in from a new glass roof at the rear, with additional walk on glass in front of the house. Too often basements feel dark and segregated but they have instilled a sense of light and connection, creating an inviting space, linked to the rest of the house. The floor of the kitchen at the rear or the property was lowered both to enhance the flow into the garden and increase the lines of sight into the basement. Finally, an exposed brick wall covers the entire double height space extending to the rear of the property giving more continuity to the design.Save this picture!© Adam ScottExposed steels allowed Sketch to remove many internal walls, maximising sight lines diagonally from front to back with cleverly located pocket doors allowing spaces to be divided when necessary. The front reception room was re-instated to its original dimensions but with a full height glass wall overlooking the double height space and maintaining the connection with the rest of the house.  Save this picture!© Adam ScottRe-configuring the stairs allowed Sketch to create a range of clever, innovative storage ideas, maximising the use of space. The hallway now feels wider and uncluttered despite the challenges of family life. Throughout the house they have used a number of natural materials; exposed bricks, painted steels, glass and wood. In the kitchen and basement, they have created storage using birch ply and upstairs added an office space on the landing continuing the use of plywood for the desk built into the eaves with large roof lights overhead.  Save this picture!© Adam ScottSave this picture!Proposed – Section BSave this picture!© Adam ScottSketch Architects are a young architectural practice based in London.

The Citlik tree that inhabits the site and also gives its name to the town is a symbolic tree in this region. According to mythology, whoever eats the fruit of the tree will be unable to leave the area. The owners could feel the history lure them to this spot, and unable to venture away decided to build their home. The client desired the juxtaposition between simple and timeless, transparent and private all at an affordable rate.  They wanted to build a life that was not restrained inside the home. As a botanist, the owner desired a home where her design concept extended out beyond the home and into the natural landscape. Her partner is an off-road motorbike rider and founder of a channel for enduro.Save this picture!© Ibrahim OzbunarSave this picture!Save this picture!© Ibrahim OzbunarThey both wanted their home to reflect both their emotional and professional connection to the environment. These philosophical parameters inspired the design process. The initial design house was based on the following concepts: the careful merger of the ground floor with the surrounding nature, the simplicity and clarity of materials and the affordability in relation to the project.  The house, which was designed for a middle-aged couple striving to simplify their lives, is formed with few materials, quality details and simple solutions. The open spaces and transparent facades create numerous opportunities for the unification of open and closed spaces. The paradox of the simplicity of the materials and the deliberate amalgamation of nature and structure makes the project unique and timeless.Save this picture!© Ibrahim OzbunarThe entire site consists of three separate units: the multi-purpose garage, a utility house and a parking garage for cars. The owner’s greenhouse is purposefully situated on the south-east corner that is hidden by trees and plants.  The location of the greenhouse was selected based on data collected from a study of the sun and purposefully positioned in the trees on the south-east corner to preserve as much native yard space as possible for planting. The natural environment was a vital aspect of the orientation of the design.  The site is populated with ten trees, a careful concoction of olive and other native trees with the one, sole Citlik tree standing in solitude.Save this picture!© Ibrahim OzbunarTheir preservation was essential to our design and we wove our house into the landscape by making them the focal point in the view from the ground-floor windows. The 1.5mt, full height windows also blend into the natural environment by facing a rolling hill heavily inhabited by trees. The owners can lie peacefully in bed and gaze out into the tranquil view of the sky melting into the surrounding hills. The pictorial view continues to the south with a daphne tree plantation that blends and extends into surrounding agricultural sites creating an endless green painting visible from the bedroom windows. The house exists in solitude with only a few neighboring houses tenuously entering its existence.Save this picture!© Ibrahim OzbunarSave this picture!© Ibrahim OzbunarPROJECT SIGNIFICANCE AND IMPACTOur motive is to empower local builders and create a mutually-beneficial relationship where we can both enhance our knowledge and understanding of the construction of buildings. The project has not only impacted the owners, but its positive influence has spread to the land, people and culture by providing a nucleus where knowledge, experience, and lifestyle meet to echo out into the community.Save this picture!© Ibrahim OzbunarProject gallerySee allShow lessA’ Design Award Announces 2019 WinnersArchitecture NewsUndergraduate Thesis Weekend Wraps Up SCI-Arc’s Spring SemesterArticles Share Citlik House / PIN ArchitectsSave this projectSaveCitlik House / PIN Architects “COPY” Manufacturers: AutoDesk, Lumion, Linea Rossa, Mapei, VitrA, Artema Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_descriptionlast_img read more

Bake-at-home savouries launched by Crantock

first_imgCrantock Bakery is aiming to fill a gap in the market for frozen savouries that are baked-off at home by consumers as it launches its first branded range.Following market research into the £1bn pie and savoury snacks market, the Cornish firm identified opportunities in the premium chilled and frozen sector, and has launched Crantock’s Finest Frozen range, for meals at home, and a Finest Chilled range for eating on-the-go. “There are currently no frozen pasties or pork pies available, nor is there a premium large-size sausage roll in the freezer cabinet,” according to Crantock’s research report.Cornish pasties now account for 9.1% of the pie and savoury snacks market in value terms, with value up 10.1% growing ahead of volume up 2.3% according to recent Nielsen data (52 weeks to 20 March 2010). “Until now, branded products have been driving the value in frozen, while own label is driving volume. We believe Crantock’s bake-at-home range will do both: increase volume and enhance value.” The launches form part of the bakery’s aim to create a £30m brand over the next five years.National accounts controller Ross Beatie told British Baker the firm will target the range at the major grocery retailers, including Budgens, Spar and Londis.Both ranges feature tradi-tional handmade Cornish pasties, handmade Davidstow cheddar and onion pasties, handraised pork pies and jumbo sausage rolls.last_img read more
