Best and Worst Foods For Your Brain

Have you ever noticed that you feel more fatigued and have problems concentrating when you eat or drink certain things? A healthy diet impacts more than just your weight. When you have a balanced diet, it benefits your whole body, including the aging processes, your appearance, and even your brain. Although scientists are only beginning to recognize the key role that nutrition plays in cognition, the discoveries are mind-blowing. There are foods that help protect memory, make you think faster, and help with logic and comprehension. However, there are also foods and drink that damage your brain, deprive it of nutrients and may have dangerous long-term consequences. Let’s take a look at the best – and worst – food and beverages for your brain.

Best Beverage: Water


We begin with water. The human body is mostly water, with muscle being comprised of 75 percent water, while fat is about ten percent water. This means that if your body is dehydrated, all of your body’s processes suffer. Decades of research has shown that when you are thirsty, it is more difficult to maintain focus, memory, and the ability to do basic calculations. Even dealing with your alarm clock is less efficient when you need fluids. This partially explains brain fog. Experts say drinking water first thing in the morning may give you a bigger boost of brain power than a cup of coffee.

Worst Beverage: Diet Soda

Diet Soda

More people are getting brain diseases at a much earlier age. According to Dr. Russell Blaylock, one of the factors that is causing early onset dementia and Alzheimer’s is diet soda. Diet drinks have harmful artificial sweeteners designed to convince the brain they don’t contain sugar or calories. .Diet sodas basically trick the brain into thinking it is receiving glucose, which never comes, which then sets the brain off on an emergency path to find calories. Things like aspartame contribute to the escalation of neurodegenerative diseases that begin in the brain. Diet sodas are even worse than regular soda, since studies show that they make people more impulsive and focus on short-term gain So next time you crave a soda, choose the regular Coke over the diet.

Best Beverage: Chamomile Tea

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea is a gentle, lightly flavored herbal tea that people usually do not associate with energy or other things believed to give the brain a jolt. But Chamomile tea is much more powerful, since it can help you settle down and get to sleep. Researchers have proven that chamomile can not only help get you to sleep, it also improves the way your brain works the following day.

Best Animal Product: Eggs


Eggs can get a bad rap due to constantly differing marketing groups trying to sell you products. But the science is clear — eggs are good for your brain.. Eggs bring you vitamin D, which helps stave off the cognitive declines associated with aging. Three large eggs give you 33% of the vitamin D you need each day. Eating the yolk is crucial, since that’s where most of the benefits come from. The yolks include choline, which is a mineral that is linked to better verbal and memory acuity. Studies also show choline helps build the memory neurotransmitter, known as acetylcholine.

Best Nut: Avocado


Avocados are classified as nuts. They are high in fat, but they contain the good kind of fat your body needs. Researchers have shown that in order to fight the battle of the bulge, your body actually needs proper fats. The brain is composed of 60 percent fat, and just like water, the brain needs this substance to function properly. Avocado comes in handy because it contains monounsaturated fats , which promote healthy blood flow to the brain. Kansas State University has found that these fats work to keep the brain cell membranes flexible. They also protect nerve cells in the brain, which gives support to information-carrying nerves.

Best Oil: Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has benefits for your whole body, but it has been recently studied for its association as an anti-inflammatory, which helps prevent degenerative brain disease. Coconut oil has fats and cholesterol which, believe it or not, actually provide benefits to the brain. That’s because the brain is a hungry organ that needs lots of calories for energy. Coconut oil can bypass glucose metabolism, which means its energy is absorbed directly into the hungry brain cells.

Best Snack: Broccoli


Broccoli is one of the best foods you can eat. That’s because it contains a ton of vitamin K, which has been demonstrated to improve verbal episodic memory (your ability to understand and remember verbal instructions.) Like eggs, broccoli also contains choline, the mineral that improves memory. People who eat broccoli actually perform better on memory tests. Moreover, new tests show that sulforaphane, which is found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, has the ability to protect the blood-brain barrier if the brain is injured.

Worst Snack: Microwave Popcorn

Microwave Popcorn

Popcorn is great if you make it the old-fashioned way, by air popping it. However, microwave popcorn is bad, and not just for your heart. Big brands like Jiffy Pop contain diacetyl (DA), which is a chemical that has been shown to break down the layer of cells that protects the brain. It also causes proteins to clump, which is a marker of Alzheimer’s. Fortunately, some popcorn makers have removed DA. Unfortunately, the bags contain harmful chemicals as well, like PFCAs, which cause heart disease. 

Best Fruit: Tomatoes


Ripe tomatoes are a good source of an important nutrient called carotenoids. This nutrient family helps memory over the long-term and has a similar impact on cognition. The carotenoid you have probably heard of is called lycopene, which is found specifically in the skin of tomatoes. Lycopene protects the brain from inflammation, which decreases the impact of depression. This also means that tomatoes are a mood booster. Little red tomatoes are the best variety to try, since the skin contains a higher concentration of lycopene in than beefsteak tomatoes.

Worst Fruit: Juices With High Fructose Corn Syrup

Juices With High Fructose Corn Syrup

Fruit juice is usually bad for you unless you make it yourself with no additives. The sugar content is the culprit, because fruit juices have high fructose corn syrup. This has a different impact on the brain than good old table sugar. Table sugar has equal parts fructose and glucose, but the syrup is loaded with fructose. A study in the Journal of Physiology showed that rats who ate a diet high in fructose had difficulty navigating the maze, even if they had previously mastered it. This is just one way that researchers think fructose hurts brain cells. Specifically, they think it hurts the way brain cells store sugar and energy, which harm the brain’s ability to learn and process thoughts. Fruit is also high in fructose, but research has shown that it does not have the same harmful impact on the brain health as fruit juice.

Best Juice: Beets

Juice Beets

A new study has shown that drinking beet juice increases blood flow to the brain in people who are older. Researchers think this could slow the progression of dementia. Beet roots contain nitrates, which are already known to have a positive impact on blood vessels. This boosts the amount of oxygen available to areas in the body which needs them. The new study confirms the benefits extend to the brain’s blood vessels as well. Focus and concentration are easier when there is more oxygen flow to the brain.

Worst Juice: Citrus Juice

Citrus Juice

Citrus juices, like sodas, contain a substance called brominated vegetable oil (BVO), which is a flame retardant that is banned in Europe in Japan. Unfortunately it is still present in soda products in North America, especially in citrus juice. Over time, BVR builds up in the system, damaging brain cells and causing nerve problems.

Best Condiment: Olive Oil

Olive Oil

Olive oil contains oleic acid, which is one of the omega-9 fatty acids that gets converted during the digestion process into OEA. OEA is a hormone that promotes healthy brain cells. A study from the University of California, Irvine, showed that rodents given OEA could  remember how to perform two tasks than those that did not have OEA could not. Researchers believe that OEA signals the part of the brain responsible for turning short-term memories into long-term ones. In other words, it’s the glue that holds the short-term memories together so they can mature.

Worst Condiment: Soy Sauce

Soy Sauce

What’s a little soy sauce to do any serious harm? Well, the reality is just a little bit of soy sauce has almost 40 percent of the daily recommended intake of sodium per day. That’s a problem, because salty food screws up the brain. According to the journal Neurology, hypertension, which can be caused by too much salt, restricts blood flow to the brain. This means your memory, focus, and organizational ability will be less than optimal. Lots of sodium also leads to dehydration. The easy way to avoid this is to stick with low-sodium soy sauce.

Best Guilty Pleasure: Dark Chocolate

Dark Chocolate

There’s nothing to feel guilty about with dark chocolate. It’s actually one of the best things for your brain. Chocolate increases the release of all kinds of feel-good substances, including endorphins. This cuts down on stress. It also includes a substance that is similar to THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. Flavanols found in dark chocolate are favorably associated with cognitive function for young and old alike. The many compounds in dark chocolate boost memory, improve attention span, make your reaction time faster, and aids in problem-solving skills by increasing blood flow to the brain.

Worst Guilty Pleasure: Frozen Pizza

Frozen Pizza

Some high fat, high salt foods make you feel fatigued, which means your brain isn’t sharp. The journal Nutrients found that most frozen pizzas are off the charts in their fat content, serving up nearly 50 percent of the total daily recommendation for fat – and that’s just in one serving, let alone two. The cheap Tombstone and other similar pizzas are the worst, so it’s better to make your own.

Best Crunchy Snack: Carrots


Carrots are already known for their ability to improve your vision. Now scientists are looking into the impact of carrots on the brain. When they studied luteolin, a substance also found in celery, they found that it reduced inflammation in the brains of mice. The mice who had plenty of luteolin did better on memory tests, showing the same level of concentration and recall that much young mice displayed. It is believed to have a positive impact on the hippocampus. Researchers believe a similar impact happens in humans. Lab tests also showed promise in carrots protecting the brain against bad toxins.

Best Comfort Food: Whole Grain Bread

Whole Grain Bread

Oprah Winfrey isn’t the only one who celebrates when eating bread. Bread has an undeservedly shady reputation because of diet fads that rail against grains. But whole grain bread is one of the best things for your brain. The brain needs energy in the form of glucose and whole grains can supply the best kind of glucose. White bread is definitely out, but whole grains have a low-GI, which means the glucose is released into your bloodstream slowly. This means you are alert throughout the day rather than in just short spurts.

Worst Comfort Food: Ice Cream

Ice Cream

I scream, you scream, we should all scream against ice cream! Why? Because of all the high-fat, high-sugar foods, it’s the worst one. While it won’t screw you up too bad if you have a single cup, the real problem happens when you eat a whole pint, as people are liable to do when they are upset. A huge dose of saturated fat and and sugar is found to diminish cognitive skills and verbal memory. It increases that foggy sensation that makes you feel like you can’t think straight.

Best Sandwich Spread: Almond Butterё

Sandwich Spread Almond Butterё

Almond butter is the perfect thing to eat when you get older. Almonds have a higher concentrations of vitamin E — three to four times the amount in peanuts — which reduces the risk of age-related cognitive trouble. That means a simple switch from peanut butter to almond butter can provide big benefits. Almond butter also contains healthy fats and protein, making it an all-around performer.

Before launching into the ways you can earn Bitcoin and make money with it, it’s important to take a realistic view of how much money you could make. Though there is certainly a huge amount of money to be made in this market, many of the beginner-friendly ways of earning Bitcoin will only result in small amounts. Don’t get discouraged, though. Even small amounts of Bitcoin can be useful assets, especially given the current rapid growth of the value of the cryptocurrency. If you want to accumulate larger sums of Bitcoin, that’s also entirely possible.

It will, however, require an initial investment that may not be easy for you to afford. With that out of the way, let’s begin exploring the different ways in which you can start making money with Bitcoin.

#1 – Bitcoin Mining


bitcoin mining

If you want to put together the largest possible amount of Bitcoin, mining is among your best options. Mining refers to the use of computer hardware to automatically perform a set of mathematical operations, which in turn creates new Bitcoin. The way Bitcoin is set up, only 21 million can ever be produced. At the time of writing this article, about 16.7 million of these Bitcoins have been successfully mined, leaving more than four million on the table for Bitcoin miners.


One thing you will need to know about Bitcoin mining before getting into it is that the difficulty increases over time. In other words, it will take more time and more computing power to generate each subsequent Bitcoin. In the early days of Bitcoin, cryptocurrency enthusiasts were able to use graphics processing units on regular computers for their mining. By now, however, the difficulty has gone up so much that much more specialized equipment is needed.


One way to approach Bitcoin mining is to do it yourself. To do this, you’ll need to invest in a Bitcoin miner. Bitcoin miners are external devices that supply the necessary computing power to produce Bitcoin in today’s high-difficulty environment. The price of a Bitcoin miner will vary considerably based on its processing ability. Small USB miners start at under $100, while larger, more powerful mining devices can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. Although the initial investment of buying a Bitcoin miner can be fairly large, it allows you to produce your own steady stream of new Bitcoin until the full 21 million has been reached.


If you decide to start mining yourself, be sure to keep the peripheral costs in mind. Not only will you have to pay for whatever equipment you choose to use, but there will also be electricity costs involved. If you have a large miner that produces a substantial amount of heat, you may also have to install a cooling system to keep it running properly. Together, these costs can eat up much of the profit margin in Bitcoin mining. Luckily, if Bitcoin continues to appreciate in value, these peripheral costs will eventually be compensated for retroactively through that appreciation.


If you don’t want to go to the initial expense and hassle of setting up your own personal Bitcoin mining operation, you can still get in on the action with what is known as contract mining. In contract mining, you’ll pay a fee in exchange for a company to employ its Bitcoin mining equipment on your behalf. This contract will last for a certain period of time, and all Bitcoin mined during that time on the equipment you’ve contracted will be sent to your Bitcoin wallet. Two of the most major contract mining services are Genesis Mining and Hashing24. Contract mining is an easy and passive way for you to accumulate Bitcoin, though it will cost more over the long run than having your own Bitcoin mining equipment.


#2 – Complete Micro-tasks for Bitcoin

Though mining lets you earn Bitcoin faster than any other method, its high investment threshold means it won’t be suitable for everyone. If you’re looking for a smaller-scale way to dip your toe into the Bitcoin pool, you may prefer completing micro-tasks that pay in Bitcoin. Micro-tasks are small, simple actions, such as viewing an advertisement or engaging with a post on social media. Though the pay is usually very low, micro-tasks are probably the simplest way to get into Bitcoin.


One of the best places to go to get started with micro-tasks that pay in Bitcoin is CoinWorker, a marketplace that specializes in such tasks. CoinWorker tasks are paid in points that are each worth $0.01(USD). Though many tasks on CoinWorker pay as little as $0.03-0.05, some do pay over $1.00. Tasks listed on CoinWorker are typically very easy and take only a few minutes to complete.


There are also several sites that will pay you small amounts of Bitcoin for viewing ads. Like other micro-tasks, these actions pay very small amounts of Bitcoin, but are incredibly easy to perform. If you’re trying to earn your first Bitcoin, viewing ads is among the easiest ways to do it. Some of the best sites that allow users to view ads in exchange for Bitcoin include CoinAdderAds4BTC and Advercoins.


#3 – Bitcoin Faucets

Bitcoin faucets are a bit like micro-tasks in the sense that they pay very small amounts of Bitcoin in exchange for a small amount of your time – often around 1 Satoshi, which is a hundredth of a millionth BTC. In the case of faucets, though, Bitcoin is usually available to be claimed by users at a set interval, such as every five minutes.


The idea behind Bitcoin faucets is that their owners sell on-site advertising, which is then viewed by users who come to claim their Bitcoin. Bitcoin faucets pay amounts that are almost too small for many users to bother with, but they’re a good way to break into the world of Bitcoin and start to see a small amount of cryptocurrency in your digital wallet. Moon Bitcoin is one of the most popular of these faucets, but there are many others out there, including FreeBitcoin, Bitcoin Zebra and Daily Free Bits.


#4 – Invest in Bitcoin and Bitcoin Derivatives

One of the most interesting developments in Bitcoin over the past couple of years has been its emergence as a fairly popular investment asset. Investing in Bitcoin, though still not as common as putting money into stocks and bonds, is rapidly moving into the financial mainstream. As one might imagine, investment is one of the more lucrative ways of making money with Bitcoin.


The most basic form of Bitcoin investment is buying and holding Bitcoin until its price goes up enough to turn a profit. Thanks to its high level of price volatility, Bitcoin has produced some incredible gains for investors who pursued this strategy early on. If you had invested just $500 into Bitcoin when it was worth $1 in early 2011, your investment would be worth more than $9.5 million today. Of course, this is an extreme example, but it does demonstrate just how profitable Bitcoin investment has been for some traders who have been willing to hold their investments for long periods of time.


One of the problems that has plagued Bitcoin investment in the past is the lack of reliable exchanges. If you’ve been following Bitcoin for a while, you might remember the surprise collapse of the Mt. Gox exchange that occurred as the result of a massive hack in 2014. With millions of dollars worth of Bitcoin lost, that hack set the mainstream adoption of Bitcoin back by years. Now, though, a new generation of more secure and better-run exchanges are coming onto the market to supply Bitcoin services. The most prominent of these has been Coinbase, which has become the de facto Bitcoin exchange for most new investors, if you are interested in other cryptocurrency exchanges then check out these Coinbase alternatives.


A less well-known way of investing in Bitcoin is to trade it as a CFD, or contract for difference. In essence, a CFD is a derivative instrument that is based on the price of an asset, in this case Bitcoin. Unlike standard investment, however, CFDs don’t involve actually buying the asset they mirror. Instead, traders open positions on the movement of an asset’s price with a CFD broker. CFDs typically have high leverage rates, meaning that both gains and losses are higher than they would be in a more traditional investment environment. Used properly, Bitcoin CFDs can be fairly profitable. If you’re too reckless with them, though, they can be high-risk investments. Whether you should personally trade Bitcoin CFDs depends almost entirely on your personal level of risk tolerance.


#5 – Market Bitcoin-related Products

By now, you’ve probably gotten the idea that you can make money with Bitcoin. What you might be more impressed by, though, is the fact that there are ways to make money from Bitcoin without actually owning any. The way to do this is to market profitable Bitcoin-based products and services to the growing audience of people who are interested in the cryptocurrency market.


The easiest way to get into being an affiliate marketer for Bitcoin products is to promote Bitcoin mining devices through the Amazon Associates affiliate program. Using this program, you can send visitors from your website to Amazon and receive a small commission on any products they buy there during the next 24 hours. Though Amazon’s selection of Bitcoin mining equipment is a little limited, it should be enough to get you started. You’ll also need a website on which to post your affiliate links. The good news is that, since Bitcoin miners are generally priced at $100+, you don’t need to sell too many of them to start making some decent money from your marketing efforts.


The same concept can also be applied to Bitcoin services. Many services surrounding Bitcoin, including the contract mining services discussed earlier in this article, offer generous commissions to marketers who refer customers to them. If you’re going to create a website, integrating promotions for services can be helpful to your readers and profitable to you.


#6 – Do Freelance Work and Get Paid in Bitcoin

As you may already be aware, there is a massive online marketplace for freelance services ranging from writing to website development. Hundreds of sites already exist to connect freelance workers with customers who are willing to pay for their services. A novel twist on this trend has come in the form of a handful of sites that send payments to freelancers in the form of Bitcoin. If you have a useful skill that businesses or other individuals would be willing to pay you for, you may be able to render services in exchange for fairly significant amounts of Bitcoin.


Freelancing in exchange for Bitcoin has two advantages that make it one of the best ways to make a serious entry into the cryptocurrency market. The first is that, unlike mining or investing, there is little or no initial cost for most forms of freelance work. The second is that some freelance jobs can pay amounts of Bitcoin worth dozens or even hundreds of dollars, setting it apart from the other free methods that often involve receiving only a few cents worth of Bitcoin at any one time. If you want to earn Bitcoin at a reasonably fast rate without investing a large amount of money at the outset, freelancing is likely your best option.


Before jumping into freelancing, give some thought to what kind of service you are going to be selling. Some of the most popular options include writing and proofreading services, graphic design, video production, voiceover work, programming and audio editing. Of course, the services you’ll end up offering will depend on your own interests and skills.


Once you’ve decided on the services you intend to sell, you’ll need to sign up for a freelance marketplace that pays in Bitcoin. One option that may be attractive to some is XBT Freelancer. This site offers many high-paying jobs, but most of them are fairly technical in nature and may not be suitable for all freelancers. Cryptogrind, another major marketplace, lets freelancers offer simpler services in exchange for lower prices. If you’ve ever used the traditional freelancing platform Fiverr, Cryptogrind will probably seem familiar to you, as its basic workings are very similar to Fiverr’s.


#7 – Create Content to Be Monetized With Bitcoin-based Ads

If you know much about making money online, you’ve probably encountered the idea of being paid to place ads on a website. Luckily, the exact same concept works well with Bitcoin. If you want to earn some cryptocurrency passively by creating great content, consider signing up with a Bitcoin-based ad network like BitMedia. These networks will pay you in Bitcoin for click-through actions on ads placed on your website. The more visitors and clicks your content gets, the more Bitcoin you can earn.


Though Bitcoin ad networks can theoretically be implemented on any type of site, they’ll be most effective on sites that actually focus on cryptocurrency and technology. This is because most of the advertisers using these services at the moment are in the Bitcoin niche themselves. The good news is that this makes Bitcoin ad networks easy to implement on the same site you use to promote Bitcoin-related affiliate products. This approach gives you the chance to earn Bitcoin and normal dollars at the same time from the same website, diversifying your income stream between the two.



#8 – Lend Out the Bitcoin You Already Have

Lending out money for interest has always been one of the best ways to generate passive income, and this principle holds very true with digital currencies. Bitcoin lending is a great deal like peer-to-peer lending in that it allows individual lenders to take on the role of a bank or other financial institution. In turn, these lenders then collect the interest as the money they lent out is repaid. To earn Bitcoin through loans, you’ll need to use a lending platform. Bitbond is one of the most popular and trusted platforms at the moment, though there are several others available. Interest rates on Bitcoin loans can be quite high, with some exceeding 10 percent.


Before you can get into lending, you’ll need to have some initial Bitcoin to start out with. You can buy it, mine it or earn it using one of the other methods described here. You can also use lending to complement other methods of earning Bitcoin. If you want to make serious amounts of money from lending, though, buying an initial stock of Bitcoin may be a good idea, as it will allow you to fund more loans and receive more interest payments. Remember that, just like any other loan, default is a possibility in Bitcoin lending. Always be sure to carefully consider the person you’re lending to and only fund loans you have a high degree of confidence in.


#9 – Become a Blockchain Developer

Most of the options you’ve seen on this list so far have been small, simple ways to earn money with Bitcoin that you can do on the side. If you’re really serious about making a living with Bitcoin, though, one of the best ways to do it is to become a developer for the growing number of sites and digital systems that use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. For every new website that decides to accept payment in Bitcoin there is a potential opening for a developer with a specialized knowledge of Blockchain. If you are that person, the opportunities available to you in the coming years could be virtually limitless.


Of course, this method of making money with the Bitcoin trend is far from simple. To start with, you’ll need a strong understanding of computer science, mathematics and computer programming. From there, you’ll also need to become knowledgeable in the specialized field of blockchain. Realistically, you should expect to go back to school to earn a computer science degree if you haven’t done so already.


With such a high threshold for entry, you may be wondering why becoming a blockchain developer is worth your time. The answer to this question lies in the amount of money that skilled blockchain experts can earn in the current market. The average salary of blockchain developers comes in at about $80,000, while top-level developers can command salaries in excess of $300,000.


This large earning potential is also tied to growing demand. With Bitcoin becoming more and more well-known with each passing day, the number of companies investing in blockchain technology could increase substantially over the next few years. Since blockchain developers are few and far between, this means that the developers who are active in the marketplace can rely on being in very high demand for the foreseeable future.


#10 – Teach Others About Bitcoin

Once you’ve established yourself in the world of Bitcoin, you may decide to share what you’ve learned with others who are less knowledgeable than yourself. Whether it’s Bitcoin investment strategies or how to properly set up a miner, there are people out there who will be extremely interested in learning from your experience. If your content is good and you have valuable information to teach, you can even end up making a decent amount of money form helping other people learn about cryptocurrencies.


One way to get into teaching about Bitcoin is to make YouTube videos about it. Though YouTube certainly won’t make you rich, you can monetize videos with Google’s Adsense program to make some ad revenue from them. If your channel becomes a popular source of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency information, this stream of income could even add up to being fairly appreciable.


If video content isn’t your strong suit, you can also write articles about the ins and outs of Bitcoin. These articles can be posted on your own site, or guest posted on another website in the Bitcoin niche. If you create good written content, you can make good money by selling articles to websites that need them.


Finally, if you’re feeling really ambitious, you can create a course about some aspect of Bitcoin. Online courses are a great way to make some extra money, but they take quite a bit of time and effort to put together. If you’re going to create a course, your best bet for marketing and selling it is to post it on Udemy, a user-generated course content site. Through Udemy, you can sell your course for whatever price you like and have access to millions of potential students. Whatever you do, make sure that the advice you are offering is valuable enough to make it worth paying for. If you create a sub-par course filled with information that could be found using a simple Google search, you aren’t likely to make much money off of it.


#11 – Earn Bitcoin by Playing Games

What better way to end this review of the different ways to make money with Bitcoin than on the fun note of playing games? Games that pay out in Bitcoin are very similar to faucets in that they pay very small amounts of Bitcoin and generate a profit through advertising. The advantage of Bitcoin games is that they monetize an activity that you may well dedicate time to every day for free. If you are in the habit of playing mobile games, try finding some games that will pay you small increments of Bitcoin to reward you for the time you spend on them. Even if it doesn’t amount to much, it’s still better than playing a game for free.


The category of Bitcoin-based gaming also includes digital casinos that use Bitcoin as a currency. Though these may be fun for you if you enjoy gambling, they aren’t a very good way to reliably make money. Like any other casino, the odds will always be in favor of the house. If you’re okay with losing some Bitcoin and just want to have some fun, though, there’s nothing wrong with giving this type of gaming a try.



As you can tell, the ways in which you can profit from the rise of Bitcoin are practically limitless. Whether you want to hold cryptocurrency yourself or make money by supplying services and know-how to other Bitcoin enthusiasts, there are opportunities for you in the current market. Best of all, the full potential of Bitcoin is probably far from being realized. As cryptocurrencies start to enter more widespread use as financial instruments and everyday methods of payment, the opportunities to make money with them will only continue to increase.

List of venture capital funds in the UK


It is crucial to carefully research any VC firm before approaching it for funds. Also, you want to make sure you’re at a pitchable stage of your business. VCs provide a support network and financial capital for early-stage businesses – typically high-risk companies but with scope for extensive growth. Investments are often made in high-technology companies specialising in pure technology or life sciences.

In effect, VC funding is little more than private equity. The most prominent investors are prolific and well-known industry leaders throughout the UK.

The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus Prices

A new Galaxy S9 starts at $720, while the Galaxy S9 Plus starts at $840. But depending on the carrier you buy it on, you might pay a lot more.

samsung 9 and 9+

Samsung's latest flagship phones are already turning heads, but the prices for the new devices are all over the place.

T-Mobile matches Samsung's price, but for a limited time. AT&T's S9 costs $70 more at $790 and the S9 Plus costs $75 more at $915. Sprint offers both phones around the same price.

Verizon and Best Buy's prices are the highest with an S9 costing $800 and the S9 Plus costing $930 -- $90 more than buying direct from Samsung.

That said, Best Buy is offering $100 off when you preorder either phone, making it one of the "best" deals: $700 for an S9 and $830 for an S9 Plus. Best Buy is also letting customers combine that $100 discount with a trade-in discount of up to $350 -- $450 off -- when you preorder the phones on Friday, March 2.

The cheapest deal so far is from Xfinity Mobile. You can get an S9 for $270 -- that's after $450 in discounts. Read on for all the details and fine print.

Check out the chart below to compare prices.

Editors' note: As more deals are announced, we'll update this article.


Samsung announced the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus at Mobile World Congress on Sunday. It kept all the wonderful things about last year's S8 and S8 Plus -- like their design and size -- and improved on some of the less wonderful things, like the placement of the rear fingerprint reader. 


Preorders and launch

You will be able to preorder a Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus on Friday, March 2 at 12:01 a.m. EST from Samsung, carriers and third-party retailers. The phones go on sale two weeks later on March 16.

Trade-in: $350 off

Most, if not all, of the carriers and third-party retailers are offering up to $350 off the S9 and S9 Plus for trading in an old phone. Newer phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Apple's iPhone X and the Galaxy S8 will fetch you $350 off, while older phones such as the iPhone SE, Note 4 and Galaxy S5 will earn you $100 off. 

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus48Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus: Sizzling photos from every angle


You can buy an unlocked S9 for $720 or $30 a month for 24 months from Samsung's website or the Shop Samsung Android app. An unlocked S9 Plus is $840 or $35 a month for 24 months.

Best Buy: $450 off

Living up to its name, Best Buy offers you $100 off either phone when you preorder them Friday, March 2 on an AT&TSprint or Verizon plan. That's on top of trade-in savings of up to $350 off. If you got the full $450 discount, an S9 would "cost" $350 and an S9 Plus would be $480.

If you miss the preorder Friday deal, you can save up to $100 off either phone when you preorder them starting Saturday, March 3.

You can also buy an unlocked S9 or S9 Plus from Best Buy on March 16 and still get the trade-in deal. Best Buy offers 24-month financing when using a My Best Buy Credit Card.


For a limited time, T-Mobile will sell the S9 for $720 or $30 a month for 24 months and the S9 Plus for $840 or $30 a month for 24 months after a $120 downpayment.

In the fine print, it doesn't state when exactly the "limited time" offer expires, but it does express that this discount price "may not be combined with some offers or discounts."

If you trade in an old phone, T-Mobile will give you 24 monthly bill credits totaling up to $360.


A Galaxy S9 will cost you $33.33 per month for 24 months ($800) at Verizon. The S9 Plus will be $39 per month for 24 months ($930).

You can get up to $350 off by trading in your old phone in the form of a bill credit.

If you're buying an S9 or S9 Plus and porting in a new line of service, Verizon will give you a $150 prepaid MasterCard.

You can also get discounts on Samsung tablets and Gear S3 smartwatches when you buy an S9 or S9 Plus on a two-year contract. Verizon Up customers with an active Samsung phone will receive an offer for $10 off select Samsung accessories.


AT&T offers a $150 bill credit when you bring a line from another carrier. This is in addition to the trade-in offer of up to $350 in bill credits (minimum of $200 trade-in credit on any phone with at least a $20 value).

What's interesting is the language around the trade-in's: Guaranteed minimum $350 when trading in a Samsung Galaxy S8 family or Note 8, iPhone 8, 8 Plus or iPhone X; LG V30; Google Pixel 2/XL Phone. So there could be a chance you get more than $350 for trading one of those phones in.

If you're an AT&T Next customer, you can buy an S9 for $26 for 30 months -- $790 total. The S9 Plus is $30 over 30 months -- that's $915. No word if the price is different for buying either phone outright.


You can lease an S9 from Sprint for just $13.55 a month or an S9 Plus for $18.55 a month on an 18-month Sprint Flex plan. That price includes a $150 Visa gift card and the full $350 trade-in -- which means you're trading in a Galaxy S8/S8 Plus or an iPhone X, 8/8 Plus.

Xfinity Mobile: S9 is $270

Comcast aka Xfinity Mobile guarantees at least $200 for trade-ins. No word yet on what the highest trade-in for a phone is. To sweeten that deal they are also giving away a $250 prepaid Visa card when you purchase a Samsung phone with a new line of service. The gift card deal expires March 22, 2018.

This means you can pick up an S9 for $270 or an S9 Plus for $390 after trade-in and the promo gift card is factored in.

US Cellular

The Galaxy S9 from US Cellular is $759 or $25.30 a month on a 30 month plan. The S9 Plus is $920 or $30.65 a month on a 30 month plan.

You can get $250 in bill credits or you can get up to $350 in bill credits when you trade-in a phone.


You will be able to preorder the S9 and S9 Plus from Costco, but beyond that there's no specifics on prices or discounts.


You can get the S9 and S9 Plus on an AT&T, Sprint or Verizon carrier plan from Target. Like Costco, there's no word on price.

Kitchen Remodeling Tips

Homeowners spend more money on kitchen remodeling than on any other home improvement project. And with good reason: Kitchens are the hub of home life and a source of pride.

A significant portion of kitchen remodeling costs may be recovered by the value the project brings to your home. A complete kitchen renovation with a national median cost of $65,000 recovers about 62% of the initial project cost at the home’s resale, according to the “Remodeling Impact Report” from the National Association of REALTORS®.

The project gets a big thumbs-up from homeowners, too. Those polled in the “Report” gave their new kitchen a Joy Score of 10 (out of 10!), a rating based on those who said they were happy or satisfied with their remodeling, with 10 being the highest rating and 1 the lowest.

kitchen remodeling

To help ensure you get a good return on your kitchen remodel, follow these  tips:

#1 Plan

Planning your kitchen remodel should take more time than the actual construction. If you plan well, the amount of time you’re inconvenienced by construction mayhem will be minimized. Plus, you’re more likely to stay on budget.

How much time should you spend planning? The National Kitchen and Bath Association recommends at least six months. That way, you won’t be tempted to change your mind during construction and create change orders, which will inflate construction costs and hurt your return on investment. 

Some tips on planning:

Study your existing kitchen: How wide is the doorway into your kitchen? It’s a common mistake many homeowners make: Buying the extra-large fridge only to find they can’t get it in the doorway.To avoid mistakes like this, create a drawing of your kitchen with measurements for doorways, walkways, counters, etc. And don’t forget height, too.

Think about traffic patterns: Work aisles should be a minimum of 42 inches wide and at least 48 inches wide for households with multiple cooks.

Design with ergonomics in mind: Drawers or pull-out shelves in base cabinets; counter heights that can adjust up or down; a wall oven instead of a range: These are all features that make a kitchen accessible to everyone — and a pleasure to work in.

Plan for the unforeseeable: Even if you’ve planned down to the number of nails you’ll need in your remodel, expect the unexpected. Build in a little leeway for completing the remodel. Want it done by Thanksgiving? Then plan to be done before Halloween.

Choose all your fixtures and materials before starting:  Contractors will be able to make more accurate bids, and you’ll lessen the risk of delays because of back orders.

Don’t be afraid to seek help: A professional designer can simplify your kitchen remodel. Pros help make style decisions, foresee potential problems, and schedule contractors. Expect fees around $50 to $150 per hour, or 5% to 15% of the total cost of the project.

#2 Keep the Same Footprint

Nothing will drive up the cost of a remodel faster than changing the location of plumbing pipes and electrical outlets, and knocking down walls. This is usually where unforeseen problems occur.

So if possible, keep appliances, water fixtures, and walls in the same location. Not only will you save on demolition and reconstruction costs, you’ll cut the amount of dust and debris your project generates.

#3 Get Real About Appliances

It’s easy to get carried away when planning your new kitchen. A six-burner commercial-grade range and luxury-brand refrigerator may make eye-catching centerpieces, but they may not fit your cooking needs or lifestyle.

Appliances are essentially tools used to cook and store food. Your kitchen remodel shouldn’t be about the tools, but the design and functionality of the entire kitchen.

So unless you’re an exceptional cook who cooks a lot, concentrate your dollars on long-term features that add value, such as cabinets and flooring. 

Then choose appliances made by trusted brands that have high marks in online reviews and Consumer Reports.

#4 Don’t Underestimate the Power of Lighting

Lighting can make a world of difference in a kitchen. It can make it look larger and brighter. And it will help you work safely and efficiently. You should have two different types of lighting in your kitchen: 

Task Lighting: Under-cabinet lighting should be on your must-do list, since cabinets create such dark work areas. And since you’re remodeling, there won’t be a better time to hard-wire your lights. (Here’s more about under-cabinet lights.) Plan for at least two fixtures per task area to eliminate shadows. Pendant lights are good for islands and other counters without low cabinets. Recessed lights and track lights work well over sinks and general prep areas with no cabinets overhead.

Ambient lighting: Flush-mounted ceiling fixtures, wall sconces, and track lights create overall lighting in your kitchen. Include dimmer switches to control intensity and mood.


#5 Be Quality-Conscious

Functionality and durability should be top priorities during kitchen remodeling. Resist low-quality bargains, and choose products that combine low maintenance with long warranty periods. Solid-surface countertops, for instance, may cost a little more, but with the proper care, they’ll look great for a long time.

And if you’re planning on moving soon, products with substantial warranties are a selling advantage.

#6 Add Storage, Not Space

Storage will never go out of style, but if you’re sticking with the same footprint, here are a couple of ideas to add more: 

Install cabinets that reach the ceiling: They may cost more — and you might need a stepladder — but you’ll gain valuable storage space for Christmas platters and other once-a-year items. In addition, you won’t have to dust cabinet tops.

Hang it up: Mount small shelving units on unused wall areas and inside cabinet doors; hang stock pots and large skillets on a ceiling-mounted rack; and add hooks to the backs of closet doors for aprons, brooms, and mops.


#7 Communicate Clearly With Your Remodelers

Establishing a good rapport with your project manager or construction team is essential for staying on budget. To keep the sweetness in your project:

Drop by the project during work hours: Your presence broadcasts your commitment to quality.

Establish a communication routine: Hang a message board on site where you and the project manager can leave daily communiqués. Give your email address and cell phone number to subs and team leaders.

Set house rules: Be clear about smoking, boom box noise levels, available bathrooms, and appropriate parking.

Be kind: Offer refreshments (a little hospitality can go a long way), give praise when warranted, and resist pestering them with conversation, jokes, and questions when they are working. They’ll work better when refreshed and allowed to concentrate on work.

And a final tip to help keep your frustration level down while the construction is going on: plan for a along with the plans for your new kitchen. You’ll be happier (and less frustrated) if you’ve got a way to have dinner while construction is ongoing.

How to Publish Your Blog on the Amazon Kindle

There are some interesting things you can do with a Kindle. One of them is the ability to subscribe to and read your favorite blogs on the go. 

It's an easy and on-the-go way to read your favorite blogs, but it was only available to a few high-profile web publications - at least, until today, when Amazon launched its Kindle Publishing for Blogs program. Now that you know about the program, your next question might be: how do I get my blog syndicated to thousands of Kindles?

Signing up for Kindle Publishing for Blogs

So there are several caveats to starting with the new Kindle blog service. First thing: you have to create a separate account for the program. Your current Amazon or Kindle account isn't enough. You need to input financial information, including your tax ID number and bank account information. You can sign up for the program if you're not of the U.S., but there are several issues involved (explanations below).

Once you have a Kindle Publishing account, you just have to provide your blog's RSS feed, a description, a screenshot, and more descriptive information and viola! Your blog's content will soon be on the Kindle (after it passes Amazon's approval process).

Receiving compensation

While your blog will be on a Kindle, you probably won't make a whole lot of money. Let's talk about numbers. First, you don't get to choose pricing - Amazon does, based on what it believes is fair. This means $0.99 or $1.99 per month for most blogs. There is no way to distribute your blog for free, either.

Also important: you only get 30% of the subscription revenue. Thus if your blog goes for $0.99 cents and 1000 people subscribe to it via the Kindle, you're not going to make $990, but rather $297. For major publishers, this is not a major source of income, but is better than nothing.

International publishers can only receive their funds via a U.S. check, which can come with significant fees to cash.

Blog distribution on the Kindle: is it worth it?

Here's the truth: you're not going to make a ton of money from the Kindle, at least for now. It's a nice way to read blogs on-the-go, although images are black-and-white and video is non-existent. We don't have numbers on how many people read blogs on the Kindle, but we bet it isn't an astounding amount.

Yet the more methods distribution for your content, the better. We do hope that the Kindle gives content creators a bigger piece of the pie, though. This would make Kindle blog publishing a more viable option.

Tips for Your Next Journey

Pretty much anyone can book a trip, but not everyone can plan an ultimate adventure that's affordable, accommodating, and fun for everyone in your group. We aim to provide you with the best secrets in the travel business and a state-of-the-art travel comparison tool to make planning easier than ever. 

Here are some tips that we'd like to share with you about Hotels.

 Check Distances on a Map It is not uncommon for hotels to slightly exaggerate their proximity to attractions and amenities around town. If being close to a particular airport or landmark is important for your trip, verify distances on Google Maps before you book a hotel. Skip the Package Deals To entice new guests, some hotels will offer themed package deals that sound exciting but may not be worth it. Just know that sometimes these packages include things you don't even want or need and that the special rate could be higher than the regular rate. Don't Pay for the Mini Bar Mini bar charges are frequently disputed because they are stocked by hand and often miscalculated. Carefully review your hotel's itemized bill and if you see any mini bar charges that aren't right, dispute them. Most front desk staff won't hesitate to void the charges. Understand Room Preferences Aren't Guaranteed Hotel bookings include preferences like bed size and the number of beds. But in many hotels, travelers should know that these preferences aren't guaranteed. You'll usually get what you asked for, but not always. Mention Special Occasions Many of us travel for birthdays, anniversaries, and special events. Mention what you're celebrating to the hotel staff a week or more before you arrive and you might be surprised with a little perk, like a bottle of champagne in your room. Be Courteous to the Staff A little niceness goes a long way, especially with hotel staff that has to deal with difficult guests on a regular basis. When you check in, simply ask how the front desk clerk's day is going and say hello to the cleaning staff when you pass them in the hall. This isn't just common courtesy, but it also increases your chances of getting perks during your stay. Ask About Parking Especially when you stay in large cities, parking costs really add up. Look for hotels that offer free or discounted parking rates. If hotel parking is expensive, apps like Best Parking can help you find nearby parking garages for cheaper rates if you don't mind walking a bit. Bundle a Hotel Stay with Airfare If you've gotten your trip all planned out and know your itinerary, consider bundling your hotel room with your airfare for a better price. Some websites offer travel packages that combine both accommodations and flights, which can help you save significantly on your hotel room. Ask for a Corner Room When you check in at a hotel, discretely ask if there's a corner room available. These are usually larger and quieter for the same price as ones in the middle of the hall. Upgrades are most often offered at the end of the day when hotels have a better sense of their occupancy.Pack Earplugs Excess noise and annoyances are part of the travel experience, but that doesn't mean they have to drive you crazy. Pack a good pair or two of earplugs for your flight and hotel room, just in case.


We hope that you found the tips on this page helpful and can put them to use on your next vacation.
