Hello once again, last time I have talked about how to get started with savedroid app which is an app that lets you save for your wishes automatically and transform your saved funds into cryptocurrency; I have talked about how to get started using it starting from registration, creating your wish and creating the smoove. Now, I will go in-depth in the process of creating your Wish inside the app.
Each and every one of us has a wish, a desire for something we want to have in the future. This has something to do with our emotions that makes us long for something, a thing that will definitely make us happy when we achieve it. But I won't be talking about some abstract wishes but rather wishes about a physical thing or event and which the Savedroid app can definitely help us in the process of actually saving for it without us doing any physical act of keeping and saving money. Let's get started in exploring this Wish function.
In the savedroid app, once you start navigating it, you will notice that the first thing for you to do is to create a Wish.
And as per the app, a "Wish" is what you're saving for; a dream vacation, new phone, or home investment.
Once you hit the "Create Your Wish" button, you will see a bunch of categories which you can choose any depending on the type of your desire or wish.
The first category is "Travel" - we all have a faraway place somewhere where we really want to visit or go but of course, requires a budget in order to go actually go there and spend some time.
Next is "Winter ski trip" - I don't actually get why Savedroid put a specific category for this when I think this one is already under the "Travel" category but oh well, it seems to me that someone in the devs loves skiing obviously
Next is a great one, "Car" - I honestly think that there's no one who doesn't want to have his own car and travel with it. I think this one is one of the popular choices.
"Gadgets", another top choice - we're living in a time where smartphones and other smart gadgets are popping out in the market every now and then, and some gadgets are becoming a necessity for us to communicate effectively and ease the way of living. I know people who like to change their smartphones to the new models every year and so they are allocating some part of savings for it.
"Events" - you can choose this one if you want to save for some concerts or other live events of popular artists and you can also use it when you want to save for your own birthday or someone else's birthday who are really close to you.
Next choice is "Home" - under this category, you can save for home furniture and the actual home itself. This is actually my first wish I created which is a 4K television.
"Gift" - choose it obviously when you want to save and purchase a present to give to someone or even to yourself; rewarding yourself from time to time is actually a good habit.
"Shopping" - I bet most of the people who use this wish category are girls. They do love shopping and we can't argue with that.
Last 2 are "iPhone" and "Playstation" - I can't consider these 2 as categories as they are too specifics wishes. Moreover, "iPhone" is a bit discriminatory to those people who love Android but never mind that, we can just choose the "Gadget" category
Wait! There is actually one last category which is the most important one, "Create Your Own". If your wish doesn't fall under any of the categories above, you may opt for this one to create your own.
Like I have previously instructed in my other blog, once you choose your Wish, you need to have a name for it then indicate its cost and choose how long you think you are likely to save for it and achieve it.
That's it for this blog. Next time, we will explore the Smooves which is a very smart feature of the Savedroid app. 'Till next time folks.

The ION Platform
Q: What is a Staker?
Staking has traditionally only taken place in local digital currency wallets run by individual users. Ionomy.com has taken the local wallet hassle out of a proof of stake coin and improved the end user experience through stakers.
A staker is an ionomy.com exclusive product. Users are able to deposit ION for a fix amount of time and return. Similar to a bank certificate of deposit. By leveraging platform holdings and pooling coins for staking ionomy.com is able to offer higher than average returns for its customers.
stakers are available in the following sizes 250, 500, 1000, 2500, 5000 , 7500 & 10000 ION. Coins loaded in stakers are locked for the duration of the stake period of 90 days.
Stake payments are made daily into the user account and available for withdrawal and trading immediately. At the conclusion of the 90 day stake period the entire staker principle amount is refunded to the users balance or if selected auto-renewed for 90 days.
Users can purchase stakers directly with BTC, or bring their own ion. The ionomy.com exchange offers another avenue for users to buy and sell coins for their stakers.
Please visit ionomy.com/stakers/buy to purchase and load stakers.
Q: How do I boost my stakers with electrons?
Atoms holders are credited with electrons daily at the rate of .01 electrons per Atom.
Electrons can then be used electrify stakers and increase their daily yield.
The guide below will assist you in electrifying stakers.
Login to your ionomy.com account.
Select 'Stakers' then 'Overview' from the left hand side menu area:
On each of the Stakers in your account you will see an icon on the left representing Electron boost functionality.Select the staker you would like to electrify (Click the electrify icon).
A confirmation screen will then display, be sure to check the details and if you are happy click on 'Enable Electrons'.
Everyday thereafter the selected staker will be automatically electrified, provided the user has enough electrons available int heir account.
Should the users electron balance be insufficient to electrify the staker, the auto renewal will be disabled until the user has enough electrons and enables it again
Users can see how many Electrons they have in their account displayed on the main dashboard.
Electrons are not currently tradeable or transferable and are exclusively produced by Atoms.
Q: How do I load a staker?
Loading ION into a staker requires a minimum of 250 ION’s. You also have the option to purchase ION stakers using BTC. To start, deposit coins (ION or BTC) into your Ionomy wallet.
You can manage your stakers by selecting [Manage] under Stakers.
Q: What are the current rates for Stakers?

Double your stake rate by applying Electrons to Your Stakers. Stake rates can be increased through the use of Electrons, a ionomy.com exclusive asset generated by Atoms and ionomy games.
Where to Trade
While the markets continue to hype over the cryptocurrency arm of the Jubilee Ace project, the company continues to quietly maintain its 3 prongs, diversified approach towards trading and fund allocation, cementing the multi-faceted approach towards growing the firm’s capital.
Jubilee Ace’s Chief Investment Officer, Shawn Colbert shared in a recent company briefing that for Jubilee Ace to continue to expand, it is important and critical that the growth comes across its various divisions.
With a review on their Commodity Division, he stated that the Commodity markets can be volatile, and there may appear to be no reason to their movements. However, as a rule, their price movements are a function of supply and demand. When the market shows a lower supply, prices tend to rise.
He added that there are three chief reasons why commodity prices move higher or lower. The first is the fundamental state of a commodity market. If current inventories exceed demand, the oversupply tends to drive prices lower. But if the demand is greater than supplies, the inventory deficit tends to push prices higher. Secondly, commodity prices fluctuate due to the technical condition of the market. Thirdly, Price charts often drive the behaviour of investors, traders, and other market participants. Demand-supply is the key factor behind the volatility of the market as well as currency moves, geopolitical matters, economic growth and government policies are the other factors that influence prices of the commodity in the market.
Crude Oil: Crude oil’s price affects the economic ecosystem at every level, from family budgets to corporate earnings to the nation's GDP. Crude oil prices are also incredibly sensitive, changing quickly in response to news cycles, policy changes and fluctuations in the world's markets and price drops and spikes can send global exchanges into a tizzy.
Crude Oil Supply: For several decades, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC)has been the elephant on the world's trading floors, with its oil-producing member nations working together to determine prices by boosting or reducing crude oil production. OPEC's every move is watched closely by governments, oil companies, speculators, hedgers, investors, traders, policymakers and consumers. The supply of crude oil is also determined by external factors, i.e, weather patterns, exploration and production (E&P) costs, investments, and innovations.
Crude Oil Demand: Strong economic growth and industrial production tend to boost the demand for oils. Other important factors that affect demand include transportation, population growth, and seasonal changes.
Arbitrage Opportunities: In the financial market, varied trading strategies can be employed depending upon one’s appetite for risk, investment capacity, time frame etc. One can go for outright purchase/sale, long term investment, hedge or arbitrage.
Basically, an arbitrage involves simultaneous buying and selling of an asset in order to profit from the difference in price.
Below are the three necessary conditions required for the arbitrage opportunity to arise:-
The given asset should trade at different prices in all the markets
Two assets with identical cash-flows should trade at different prices
An asset with a known price in the future, must trade today at a different price than its future price discounted at the risk-free interest or cost of carrying as in the case of commodities. As a result of arbitrage, price of an asset tends to converge and the speed with which it happens so reflects the efficiency of that market.
While arbitrage trade is visibly risk-free and may have the potential to generate better returns on investment than the traditional investment options, one should be aware that this trading strategy is not completely risk-free.
Returns are not guaranteed and the ratio of profit/loss may vary from time to time depending upon the market conditions.
The global oil trading industry is experiencing substantial change. A blend of low commodity prices, capital requirements and increased price transparency has eroded margins, reduced arbitrage opportunities and modified the players participating in this competitive arena.
