Canada offers a wealth of opportunities in a range of well-paid and highly skilled roles. Shortages of skilled labor have led the Federal Government to develop a Fast-Track entry system for individuals with high-priority skills. This makes the country a great choice for those looking to build a new life and career. This list looks at some of the best opportunities for 2017-2018 based on the Federal Government's list of in-demand occupations. Cardiology technologists Cardiology technologists are in demand in Canada as the result of the large aging population. The highest average hourly wage for a cardiology technologist can be found in Calgary at $44.27 per hour. The lowest average hourly wage for a cardiology technologist can be found in Halifax at $20.85 per hour. The significant number of the jobs available in this sector can be found in health care and social assistance. To work as a cardiology technologist in Canada (with the exception of Quebec) a technologist must be registered with the Canadian Society of Cardiology Technologists. Salary Ranges: ● Hourly: CAD$20.45 - C$33.75 ● Annual: C$43,451 - C$69,701 Professional Body: Canadian Society of Cardiology Technologists Respiratory therapist respiratory therapist positions are Toronto and Calgary followed by Winnipeg and Vancouver.

A broad field, the engineering sectors listed above are all consistently on the list of required workers in short supply. This is another field that is being hit by the retirement issue and one where opportunities are expected to continue to grow for those beginning their careers. Salaries can vary in the different sectors and also across the different regions of Canada. Salary Ranges: ● Chemical Engineer: ○ Hourly: C$12.96 - C$57.81 ○ Annual: C$45,128- C$102,323 ● Mining / Geological Engineer: ○ Hourly: C$39.04 ○ Annual: C$56,575- C$124,764 ● Petroleum Engineer: ○ Hourly: C$50.08 ○ Annual: C$63,421- C$232,240 ● Aerospace Engineer: ○ Hourly: C$17.00 - C$47.92 ○ Annual: C$49,248- C$111,006 Professional Body: Varies by province and territory and specialty, see Engineers Canada/Ingénieurs Canada for detailed information.

Hard times for a town called Asbestos
The town of Asbestos, in Canada's Quebec province, has been losing the PR war ever since its main industrial output was declared cancer-causing and banned in most of the industrialized world. Now Asbestos residents want to rehabilitate asbestos and their mine -- and their local economy along with it. Duration: 02:04

www.immigroup.com 416-962-2623 / 1-866-760-2623 We’ve told you about some of the underrated immigration destinations in Canada, now check out our list of places prospective Canadians should avoid: the poor places, the racist places, the isolated places, the depressing places, the worst of the worst! Naturally, the tiny towns in the woods of Northern Ontario or the southern shore of Newfoundland would be the worst of the worst, but let’s be reasonable. Here are list of towns and cities with a substantial population (at least 5000 residents) that might seem like a decent idea to a prospective immigrant interested in a slower pace of living. Photos Credit to: 1. New Glasgow, Nova Scotia Photo by Verne Equinox, via Wikimedia Commons Photo by JBarta via Wikimedia Commons High crime rate? Check. High unemployment? Check. High cost of living? Check. Limited access to services? Check. High property taxes? Check. Bad weather? Check. Despite being a small, quaint city just a few hours from Halifax, New Glasgow tops polls of the worst places to live in Canada. How could those 10,000 people stand it? They must have all been born there. In 2009 New Glasgow ranked 36th out of 208 in StatsCan's crime severity index. The crime rate increased from 2011 to 2012, and was significantly higher than the provincial average. In 2006, New Glasgow had an unemployment rate of 7.7%. It has decreased since then and, as of the 2011 census, it was 5.7%, or slightly lower than the provincial average. The cost of living in New Glasgow was estimated by one website to be 4% higher than the cost of living in New York City, but only 30.3% of those reporting say their households earn more than $60,000 Canadian per year (after taxes). Property tax in New Glasgow was higher than the average in Nova Scotia and significantly higher than Halifax up to and including 2013. Climate New Glasgow receives 1212 cm of precipitation per year (that's more than Vancouver). 2. Kitchener - Waterloo, Ontario Photo by Tina, via Wikimedia Commons Photo by Tyx via Wikimedia Photo by JustSomePics, via Wikimedia Congratulations, Kitchener / Waterloo, you are the hate crime capital of Canada! Despite hosting two universities and a massive tech company campus, the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge tri-city area experiences a high per capita rate of verbal and physical assaults on ethnic, religious and gay minorities. Despite its location in the highly diverse Southern Ontario region, Kitchener has inherited the mantle from the previous main offender, Calgary. In 2011 Kitchener-Waterloo was surpassed by Peterborough, Hamilton and Ottawa in police-reported hate crimes, however the rate remained at nearly double the national average. 3. Thetford Mines, Quebec The third of the three rogues’ gallery dwellers is poor Thetford Mines, the heart of Quebec’s asbestos mining region and the winner of the title Most Polluted City in Canada. Despite the overwhelming evidence of the dangerous health effects of asbestos, Canada still mines the dangerous mineral, and the biggest mine in a populated area is in Thetford Mines. 4. Bay Roberts, Newfoundland Photos by Werner Koehler, via Wikimedia Commons Many, many other rural communities on the east coast could make this list, but Bay Roberts appears because it has the highest unemployment rate in Canada, at 17%. Despite the oil, gas, mining and hydro-power booms in Newfoundland, Bay Roberts has somehow managed to avoid the job benefits. This wouldn’t seem so peculiar if Bay Roberts wasn’t just an hour’s drive from money-drunk St. John’s and other rapidly expanding bedroom communities like Conception Bay South. The unemployment rate has improved as it was 20.7% in 2006 5. Sarnia, Ontario Photo by P199, via Wikimedia Sarnia itself may not be so bad, but its view of and proximity to American heavy industry helps to reinforce the fact that this border town is polluted. It also has an empty downtown and a shrinking population. 6. Saint John, New Brunswick Photo by DDD DDD, via Wikimedia Photo by Shipley07, via Wikimedia Photo by Michael d40, via Wikimedia Long known as the unglamourous milltown cousin to its apostrophic neighbour to the east, St. John’s, Saint John is a dirty, stinky pulp and paper port on the Bay of Fundy. Despite the natural beauty nearby, the city has a declining population and few economic opportunities outside of the paper mills, nuclear power plant, and small university satellite campus. Don’t end up in Saint John when you want to live in St. John’s! 7. Nanaimo, BC Photo by Masterhatch, via Wikimedia Photo by galina75, via Wikimedia 8.

Canadian Oil Sands Create Energy Boom and Environmental Problems
US politicians often speak of reducing demand for imported oil coming from unfriendly nations. But the biggest foreign supplier of oil to the United States is Canada, a friendly nation. Much of the 1.4 million barrels of petroleum Canada sends south every day comes from an unconventional and somewhat dirty source, so-called "oil sands," sometimes disparagingly referred to as "tar sands" because of the thick, gooey nature of the product. VOA's Greg Flakus visited the oil sands region and filed this report from Fort McMurray, in Alberta Province.

Tar Sands Oil Mining in Canada - A Nightmare
The irresponsible exploitation of Canada's habitat has to stop!!
Views: 1444 David Klavins
India is, without a doubt, one of the marvels of the 21st century from an economic standpoint, especially when viewed in the context of where it was just a century ago. In 1917, India was still part of the British Empire, same as Canada. For hundreds of years, India had been under British control, and had served as the crown jewel for the Eastern portion of the Empire in many ways, a great many of which did not, in turn, benefit the local Indians all that much. Even following the incredible success of the immortal Mahatma Gandhi’s revolutionary non-violent form of protest which in turn let to, well, a revolution, there were doubts about whether or not a nation with such a massive population and internal strife could even feed itself, let alone compete. And here we are, in 2017, when the question isn’t if India can compete with Canada, the US, the UK, and the rest of the West, but, indeed, how those nations can keep up with the massive manufacturing boom that’s occurring in India. To be clear, not all the manufacturing jobs in the region benefit the overall economy rather than Western interests, but that’s a story for another day. Today, we’re focusing on what happens after just about any nation undergoes the sort of radical transformation India has in the last century—immigration and emigration. The forces of change have led many to leave India as foreign businesses have arrived. So, what are the best locations for Indian nationals looking to immigrate to Canada? Let’s take a look. First of all, it should be noted that even the term “Indian-Canadian” is something of a misnomer. India is such a huge and vast subcontinent and country that there are a litany of different ethnicities, languages, cultures, religions and traditions within that overarching umbrella term of “Indian.” That being said, the Canadian government largely tags these groups as all being “Indian-Canadian,” and in any case, no matter what Indian culture you belong to, you’re sure to find a community waiting for you in Toronto. One of the most immigrant-friendly cities in North America, more than half of the entire Indian-Canadian population resides in Toronto. It is home to a wide variety of different Indian cultures, meaning that you have a good chance of finding fellow Indian nationals who more closely fit your own linguistic, cultural, and religious background, rather than merely immigrating somewhere with the semi-helpful moniker of “Indian-Canadian” to guide you. As English-speaking Canada’s most world-renowned city, Toronto is home to not just the majority of the nation’s Indian-Canadian population—and all the subcultures therein—but likewise has some of the largest and most important Indian structures in the nation. The BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Toronto is the nation’s largest Hindu Temple, while the Ontario Khalsa Darbar is Canada's largest Sikh gurdwara. Vancouver is one of the most popular North American immigration locales, period. This is especially true of individuals looking to immigrate to the Pacific Northwest, Canada, or both. Vancouver is home to a large Punjabi and Sikh minority. This is notable, as the latter in particular has had difficulty assimilating into American and Canadian society. Hindus are also welcome in Vancouver. Festivals, temples, and large-scale public celebrations of all different forms of Indian heritage and culture are present in the crown jewel of British Columbia. The nearby town of Abbotsford is home to the Gur Sikh Temple. Constructed in 1911, it is the oldest Sikh temple in North America. One of the many reasons the Pacific Northwest has sprung to life over the past few decades has been its booming computer and tech industries, both of which are likewise huge in India as well. As such, if you’re looking to immigrate to the Pacific Northwest for business opportunities in these fields but do not wish to move to a larger city such as Vancouver or Seattle in the United States, you may want to try Surrey, a smaller but Indian-friendly locale also located in British Columbia. Surrey is especially welcoming to Indian Sikhs, with as much as 16.3% of the population reporting as such, an impressive number anywhere in North America, especially in the Great White North. April 13th is given over to the celebration of Vaisakhi, an important festival for both Sikhs and the Punjab region of India as a whole, and one which historically commemorates the start of the harvest while carrying strong religious undertones for those of practising Sikhism. In 2008, as many as 100,000 attended. As such, if you’re a Sikh looking to immigrate to the Pacific Northwest for a fresh start or to take advantage of the booming tech sector, Surrey may prove to be a terrific fit.

Afghanistan coal mine collapse: 27 killed, at least 13 fear trapped
Sign up for a free trial of News Direct's animated news graphics at http://newsdirect.nma.com.tw/Reuters.aspx At least 27 miners were killed in a collapse in a coal mine in Afghanistan's northern province of Samangan on Saturday evening (September 15). It is believed at least 13 other miners could still be trapped in the mine. The miners were reportedly working in an underground coal mine in Abkhorak coal mine in Ruyi Du Ab district when part of the mine collapsed on them. According to Reuters, "rescue teams have recovered 27 dead miners and there are 22 more wounded," Azizi said. District police chief Akram Behzad said all trapped miners had been rescued. "Afghanistan is estimated to be sitting on as much as $1 trillion in untapped mineral resources but decades of war and instability have kept most investors away. "The government says it expects to make as much as $4 billion a year in mining revenues in the decade from 2014, when most Western forces are due to leave, compared with less than $150 million from its resources sector last year. "The U.S. Pentagon said in a in 2010 briefing paper Afghanistan's main resources were iron ore, with an estimated value of nearly $421 billion, and copper deposits valued at $273 billion. "But insecurity has hampered investment. Lat year, work was halted at China Metallurgical Group's $3 billion Aynak copper mine in the eastern province of Logar following attacks. "Safety standards are also often lax in Afghanistan, with some mines employing children as young as 10 despite government regulations forbidding child labor, the government has said." The collapse is the latest accident to hit Afghanistan's mining industry. It was reported that 11 miners were killed in a similar incident in the northern province of Baghlan last December.

Probably because of the use of 'worst' in the title. So we decided to ask you. We conducted an internet poll, that most scientific of data collection methods. The poll included the 8 cities in our original list and 12 major cities throughout Canada. Here's how our users ranked the top 10: 7. TIE: MONTREAL, THETFORD MINES, SARNIA AND VANCOUVER - 5% OF VOTES Thetford Mines and Sarnia both found themselves on our original list due to their reputations for being extremely polluted. There was considerable debate in the comments section of the article about whether or not Sarnia remains polluted. In 2013 a Canadian magazine ran a story claiming that Sarnia was the most polluted city in Canada. FactJunkie writes: "Sarnia has impressive social services available and is a common through-destination for people traveling to the States. Heck, the similar city of Windsor, Ontario has higher unemployment and is right across from Detroit... it has higher suicide rates, too. And it's only 2 hours away from Sarnia. Another great pick." M Egan S Horttie writes: "Sorry Ana if you lived in Sarnia, you would see that there is some truth to this article lol. If you are not working in either the Chemical Valley part of Sarnia or Blue water health, expect an entry level low paying job here." Corduroy-Pillows writes: "Over last couple years, Downtown Sarnia has enjoyed and very encouraging amount of revitalization. New residential spaces converted from older buildings and homegrown businesses moving into the empty store fronts. There's First Fridays events, a few decent festivals, art galleries, music venues, pubs, restaurants, green space and a new craft brewery opening up downtown. Sarnia is doing fine." M Egan S Horttie counters: "Really where? because I sure as hell didn't see much of anything, and I was there 2 days ago Where was I going ? Work place Group Employment! because I trained for 6 weeks, for a different trade out side of London (Yet another opportunity not available in this dump!) OH WOW more pubs ,and restaurants? That oughta boost our horrible employment rate, best look for another job on the side.. (If you can even f*cking find one) Let's not forget our lovely waterfront Centennial Park, full of Asbestos. As a kid ya this city was great, Canatara Park was awesome, the Howard Watson Natural trail is great the Beach, is great. I loved the Animal Farm. But as far as employment goes, that's far from being revitalized, not everyone wants to be a Chemical Engineer, or a goddamn nurse. Or sharpen pencils all day in an office. Those are pretty much your only options here. Oh and such a shame about Montanas, AGAIN. You like many other Sarnians may already be retired, not young and looking to find their way. Sarnia is showing it's age, and it's not looking good so far. It's old, and tired like the many people who live here anyway. The only big success was Bayfest. But even that seems to have been taken away from us. Oh yes, and apparently blinkers are optional on cars in this city."

Global 3000 | Oil Rush in Canada - A boom and its consequenc
Alberta is a province in Western Canada. The Rocky Mountains cross the territory,which has a number of national parks. But it is also home to an industry which is starting to exploit huge mineral deposits...the oil sands,Canada's most important source of petroleum.A third of the world's oil sands are located here. But the mining of the substance is causing massive environmental destruction. And extracting crude oil from sand is very energy intensive. The emissions of CO2 are three times as high as with standard methods of oil extraction. The oil sands industry is the largest single source of greenhouse gasses in Canada and the quantity of emissions is set to rise as the industry expands. Because the thirst for oil is so great in the neighbouring US,Canada will hardly be able to meet its Kyoto protocol commitments.

Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI) - A Diversified Global Mining Company
http://www.hdimining.com/s/Home.asp Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI) is a diversified, global mining group with more than 25 years of mineral development success. From its head office in Vancouver, Canada, HDI applies its unique strengths and capabilities to acquire, develop, operate and monetize mineral properties that provide consistently superior returns to shareholders. HDI was established as an affiliation of geologists, financiers and mining professionals engaged in advancing mineral properties in western Canada for a series of public companies. Many of the company's founders are active members of the HDI Board of Directors and senior management team today. From 1985 to 1990, HDI founded three companies -- North American Metals, Continental Gold and El Condor Resources -- with projects that would go on to become major hard rock mines. These include Golden Bear (operated 1989-2001), Kemess (operated 2000-2011) and Mt. Milligan (construction commenced in 2010). A new suite of HDI-associated public companies was created in the 1990s, each of which went on to advance significant mining assets and generate superior shareholder returns. Many of these companies -- including Taseko Mines Limited, Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd. and Amarc Resources Ltd. -- are still associated with HDI today. Others that achieved mineral exploration and development success with HDI -- including Great Basin Gold Limited, Detour Gold Corporation, Rockwell Diamonds Inc. and Anooraq Resources Corporation -- are now independently managed. On January 5, 2011, Farallon Mining Ltd. was acquired by Nyrstar NV in an all cash transaction valued at C$409 million. Continental Minerals Corporation was acquired by the Jinchuan Mining Group in April 2011 in a transaction valued at C$432 million. HDI is structured as a private mining group that provides management and technical services to a diverse portfolio of high-quality and high-growth mineral companies and properties. HDI sources and acquires mineral assets with significant potential for value growth. Between 1985 and 2010, HDI companies raised more than $1.4 billion in equity financing, while providing consistently superior shareholder returns. The compounded annual growth rate for all HDI company investments over that timeframe exceeds 25%. An investment of $10,000 made in 1986 would be valued at $3,000,000 in 2010, a return of 30,000%. This far exceeds most mining industry peers and benchmark indices. HDI has the technical capabilities and management experience to consistently and rapidly advance mineral properties through exploration, development, permitting, construction and into stable and profitable mine operations. It possesses a fully integrated, multi-disciplinary team of mining professionals with global experience and a proven track record of mineral development success. HDI management and professional staff are known for their versatility, creativity and passion to find the best solution to every development challenge. HDI's unique strengths and capabilities are applied to identify, qualify and acquire mineral assets with significant potential for value growth. They are also applied to accelerate the development of every HDI company, and to monetize value in the best interests of development partners. HDI is characterized by the drive and commitment of its founders, senior management and multi-disciplinary team. It is known for its technical excellence, experience and reliability. And it is passionate about bringing Responsible Mineral Development to life in creative ways for the benefit of shareholders, partners and communities. HDI is associated with the following companies: Heatherdale Resources Ltd., Curis Resources Ltd., Northcliff Resources Ltd., Rathdowney Resources Ltd., Northern Dynasty Minerals Ltd., Amarc Resources Ltd., and Quartz Mountain Resources Ltd.

China's Bitcoin Miners Head West...to Canada
China is losing its grip on bitcoin mining, while Canada, home of vast energy resources, is lifting its cryptocurrency profile.While China has evolved into a leading domicile for bitcoin mining, the country’s central bankers have been pushing back, triggering a wave of defections among mining operations to head for more cryptocurrency-friendly waters in the Western world, more specifically, Canada.Bitcoin miners are being drawn in from lobbying efforts by energy industry participants looking to proliferate the oil recovery that is unfolding in the region.If it weren’t for bitcoin miners, investors, traders and consumers would have none of the leading digital coin with which to transact.And China is responsible for about 75% of that supply.The process places a huge demand on energy consumption, something that both Chinese regions such as Xinjiang and Canadian provinces such as Quebec boast plenty of.And with the regulatory hoops that cryptocurrency miners must jump through in China, Canada is looking better each day.China has already been targeting smaller bitcoin mining operations.Now with murmurings of more severe pushback from Chinese regulators on bitcoin mining amid the power drain, including another blanket ban amid “concerns of excessive electricity consumption and financial risk,” Canada has become the next most attractive option amid plentiful and cheap resources and frigid winters as well as a more supportive government on cryptocurrencies.Canada’s extremely cold temperatures aid in the mining process by helping to keep the equipment cool, saving on the electricity bill in the process.China’s leading bitcoin miner Bitmain has been diversifying from its home base and is reportedly considering moving to Canada.Meanwhile, as part of the courting process, Hydro Quebecis reportedly in engaged with dozens of cryptocurrency miners about coming to Canada, including top industry players.Meanwhile, cryptocurrency miner BTC.Top is already on its way to the Great White North.ZQMiner, based in China’s Hubei province, is deeply engaged in the bitcoin mining process, developing and operating bitcoin mining assets across a trio of China’s provinces.The company’s CEO Li Wei told Reuters: “We, and from what I understand many of our peers, are already making plans to go overseas.” While the Canadian government may have a friendlier stance on bitcoin mining versus China, the latter of which has banned upcoming ICOs and cryptocurrency exchanges altogether, Canada is no slam dunk.Local ICOs such as popular messaging app Kin opted to block Canadian residents from its 2017 token generating event amid “weak guidance” from Ontario regulators.Meanwhile, while the power supply is there, the bitcoin-mining infrastructure is not as pervasive, and it could take up to a year for mining operations to set up facilities in Canada’s budding crypto-mining industry.

Big Chinese Bitcoin Miners Are Turning to Canada
The bitcoin mining industry in China appears to be expanding to favorable locations around the world right now.Quebec is one such location where the Chinese have taken refuge, and many more might be on the way.Just a couple of days ago we reported how the Canadian province of Quebec is trying to leverage its cold weather and cheap hydro-electric power to attract bitcoin miners, specifically those from China.Now we can say that Quebec-based companies are already enjoying this new boom in business that the Chinese miners are bringing to the province.Speaking with news.bitcoin.com, Fooad Nejad, the vice president of Montreal-headquartered data-centers consulting firm Kelvin Emtech, described how “very time-constrained” Chinese firms with deep pockets are swooping in to the area with a demand to start operations as soon as possible, bringing with them thousands of mining rigs.He said that the uptick in Chinese interest started 6 months ago and increased significantly over the last month.The Canadian company have already signed contracts for several megawatts and are in negotiation for several others.Nejad also said that the Chinese investors explained that they want to move mining operation to Quebec “because electricity rates and climatic conditions are very favorable.” One of the biggest players in this industry, the Beijing-headquartered bitcoin mining machines (ASIC chips) producer Bitmain Technologies Ltd.,is now publicly known to be looking to establish a presence in Quebec.The company’s spokesperson Nishant Sharma told the Reuters news agency on Friday that Bitmain was examining possible sites in the province and is also talking with regional electric power authorities.The company has just recently established a branch in Zug, Switzerland as part of its global expansion plans. The report also tied this development to the possible government clampdown on the industry in China.“We, and from what I understand many of our peers, are already making plans to go overseas,” said Li Wei, CEO of ZQMiner, a bitcoin mining equipment company which operates mines in three Chinese provinces.Is this a signal for things to come in the Chinese bitcoin industry?

The Future of Crude in the Texas of the North
Canada is the fifth-largest producer of oil in the world. But when the price of oil plummeted in late 2014, the country’s oil-rich western province of Alberta began hurtling toward a recession, with widespread layoffs and historic reductions in drilling activity. The impact was felt across Canada, too. Crude oil is the country’s number one export, and 99 percent of it is sold to the United States. But in recent years, the US has emerged as a major oil producer in its own right, following a revolution in controversial fracking technology that has increased US oil production and contributed to a global oversupply of oil. Now, Canada's energy sector faces the difficult question of how to meet new markets in a changing global energy landscape. VICE News visited Alberta, known as Canada’s “Texas of the North," in what is normally high season for drilling — just before the frozen ground thaws — to explore how the bitter sting of low oil prices is affecting the region’s the economy.

British Columbia Is Burning
At 10 percent of Canada's land surface, BC's landmass is immense, containing a large stretch of temperate rain forest along its Pacific coast. Some of the wettest places in North America are within the province—earning BC the nickname the "wet coast." For the past decade, the province, including the rainforest, has been affected by the mild winters and drought-like conditions, which culminate in uncharacteristically long lasting fire seasons. This year has been the driest since 1893, when records started, which has lead to more and longer lasting wildfires. Experts are calling the province as a whole the canary in the coal mine. During the peak wildfire season, hundreds of new fires were being reported every day, and the province struggled to get both the human and financial resources to keep up. VICE heads to Oliver in the BC's interior to embed with fire crews and Boulder Creek in the coastal BC to look at how the wildfires have affected the fragile BC ecosystem—everything from air quality to the salmon migration have been touched. We talk to firefighters on the ground and in the air, trek through charred forests with environmental scientists, and discuss connections to the climate change with BC's climate experts and hear from activist David Suzuki who tells us "we don't even know enough to know if it's too late."

Bitcoin This Week: The CLOUD Act Generates Concern, QuebecHydro Declines New Bitcoin Miners And More
Today on Bitcoin This Week: we discuss the recent concerns around the CLOUD Act and the related consequences in the industry, Quebec Hydro declines new Bitcoin miners establishing operations in the city, bitcoin prices and more. Subscribe: http://bit.ly/CryptoCoinNewsYT Million Dollar Bitcoin Student Drug Ring It was reported through the DailyMail that four Manchester University students in the UK are appearing in court for running a million dollar drug operation from a city centre flat. The operation was run through the Dark Web and took Bitcoin as a payment method. Investigators found that around £750,000 worth was sold through the website but the total was probably greater than that, thanks to the Bitcoin payments received. Binance Exchange Ready To Jump Ship To Malta? It’s been reported that the major cryptocurrency exchange based in Hong Kong, Binance, has commenced physical operations in Malta and is now discussing an upcoming partnership with a Maltese bank that might lead to fiat-to-crypto services being added to the exchange’s trading pairs. At present, the venture has been avoiding heavy legislation by purely trading crypto coins but still has had close scrutiny from China. Quebec Hydro Declines New Bitcoin Miners The Canadian province of Quebec is placing on hold all new applications and plans for developments in the region by Bitcoin and cryptocurrency miners, who are attracted to the area by the low price of hydroelectric power and cold winters. Operators tied to the major supply are reported to be turning away applications for new mining ventures. Additionally, Quebec’s energy minister is on record stating his concern about the mining industry, how it could affect the ability to meet peak demands for electricity and how other energy-intensive industries could generate many more jobs. As a result, new guidelines in keeping with central government policy are being drafted and, once reworked, new crypto mining ventures can be considered again, as long as they comply with the regulations imposed by the government. Bitcoin Community Concerned By New CLOUD Act The Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data (CLOUD) Act has been buried deep within a trade package with claims that most of the lawmakers voting on it had little chance to read and digest all the information before actually voting for it. The project, which has over 2,000 pages, covered a lot of fields to say the least, including the use of private data from individuals. Major concerns within the crypto community are the imminent loss of privacy on an international scale that this act could bring to the table as agencies get wider-ranging options to riffle through other parties’ private data. Andreas Antonopoulos, well-respected authority in the blockchain world, reacted to the news concluding that the Act destroys privacy worldwide and recommended people to go dark and encrypt their data. Bitcoin Still At The Mercy Of The Bears With the Cloud Act bringing more uncertainty to the market and global economies drowning with the latest news that has been affecting the overall view, the markets have been slipping in the last 24 hours. Seven days ago Bitcoin was around the $8,600 mark, experiencing two brief recoveries and getting above and around $9,000. Unfortunately, prices started to go down after this brief take of air. It all points to the current scenario remaining for a while longer. The current price for Bitcoin can be seen here: https://cryptocoin.news/currencies/BTC/bitcoin/ Read more: https://cryptocoin.news/videos/9799-9799/
