Best Places to Work! Really?

Rating best employers is a tricky affair – are we getting the parameters right or getting too swayed by frills? I am sure many of you love your organisation. If that’s an exaggeration then let’s say some of us do. At least on the days of salary, bonus, promotions and other self-gain days!

What Happened to Cryptocurrencies and What's Next for Blockchain?

Since the month of January 2018, we have seen the crypto currency market literally fall from a valuation of $700 billion to $297 billion as on April 2018, which is a direct hit of 58%.
