AOTH stocks – project development stages and risk versus reward

When looking for an investment, the approach I take involves looking at the global, big picture conditions. I study trends, read the news, basically watch and listen to what’s going on in the world. Then I study the different sectors to select the one (or ones) that I think is going to match up well with the overriding, long-term theme. This is top-down investing.

The second part of my search for the dominant investment is a bottom-up approach. This is where I find individual companies, in the specific sector I have chosen to invest in.

Arctic mines face thawing permafrost disaster

The thawing of permafrost is yet another manifestation of climate change, that populations living near it will have to deal with in the coming decades as global warming accelerates, particularly in the polar regions

Mining is often deemed complicit in the rise of greenhouse gas emissions, given its use of heavy machinery and ground disturbance, but in this case, in areas where the ground is permanently frozen but starting to thaw, operations can be negatively impacted, and big miners are having to shell out millions. We have seen the implications of thawing permafrost at Teck’s Red Dog Mine in Alaska, and at Norilsk Nickel’s Oktyabrsky and Taimyrsky mines in Siberia.

The problem is not going away; in fact, there is every indication it will get worse.

Arcology releases optimized version of CryptoKitties, the most popular game on Ethereum blockchain

One of the most iconic and successful ventures to come out of the 2017 crypto mania was a blockchain-based game called CryptoKitties.

As CryptoKitties’ popularity grew, so too did investor interest. In 2018, top venture capital firms Andreesen Horowitz and Union Square Ventures pumped $12 million into the development studio responsible for the original game.

To demonstrate its superiority to the Ethereum network, Codebase announced last month that Arcology has released an improved version of CryptoKitties. The new game — called LightspeedKitties — was optimized to take advantage of Arcology’s processing power and native ability to dynamically adjust to network demands.

Call for domestic mining of critical minerals is finally being answered

North America relies heavily on foreign supplies of critical minerals — the raw materials it needs to become a leader in high technology, transportation, energy, and defense. Materials like lithium, graphite, and tin.

For years, the United States and Canada did not bother to explore for these minerals and build mines. Globalization brought with it the mentality that all countries are free traders, and friends. Dirty mining and processing? NIMBY. Let China do it, let the DRC do it, let whoever do it.

China recognized opportunity knocking and answered the door
