In these vast age of internet, we would notice the daily massive increase in the number of people that makes use of social media platforms such as Instagram. However, despite the time and money people spend to use platforms like Instagram, they hardly get any reward in turn despite the high income they generate for developers of these platforms.
You don’t have to worry anymore about these issues. This is because a better alternative where you get to earn for doing the same things you do for free on Instagram and other social media platforms. That better alternative is called “Tata”.
What is Tata?
Tata is a blockchain-based platform that works more like steem where users get paid for creating and posting quality contents on the Tata platform. The users of Tata get to earn ACN crypto token for using the Tata application.
There is also a chat feature where by users get to engage with each other on the Tata platform. There are already thousands of users using the Tata platform and as such, it has been a perfect place for people to make new friends and connect with others across the entire world.
For you to get started on Tata, you are required to install the Tata App from play store (for Android users) or App Store (for iPhone users). Then create an account and choose your area of interest.
Earning on Tata Platform
For you to earn on the Tata platform, you are required to download TTC connect from play store (for Android users) or App Store (for iPhone users).
Open the Tata App, click on the last tab at the bottom right and click on earn reward.
Fill your KYC details and upload necessary documents. Note that it takes up to 48hours for it to be approved.
Comparing Tata with Steem
Tata works more like Steem where you get paid for content creation. But in the case of Tata, picture and video contents are mainly the point of focus. The chat feature within Tata makes it a better social media platform compared to Steem. Tata is a great platform and I see a lot of potentials in it.

This is an image heavy post, no apologies made.
I felt under a lot of pressure to get the shower done, so much of the progress is missing. At least I stopped to take photos periodically!
Dusty haze and clean beginnings
I wanted to remove the tiling cement from the section where I had chopped tiles off of the wall. Unfortunately chipping it away led to me breaking holes in the wall, no matter how slow I went. I thought it might work better if I were to cut grooves into the tiling cement to make it weaker and easier to chip pieces off.
Using my large angle grinder and the same disc I used in the kitchen to cut the bricks, I proceeded to cut a number of grooves in the tiling cement. Here you can get an idea of the dust that is kicked up whilst cutting with that disc. Before I opened the door and took the photo I could hardly see past my hand, it’s insane!
The floor was swept clean before I started, but now you can get an idea of the amount of dust, just look for my footprints. I did not even cut that much!
Even with the grooves I was breaking through the bricks, so I stopped and checked that I would at least be able to match the tiles I had with the existing tiles. It looked like I would so I decided to start on the wall of glass bricks.
Look closely at the photo and you will see two metal rods poking up between the glass blocks. I drilled holes into the layer of bricks and fixed those rods in there to provide a bit of extra strength for the wall. Would it help? I don’t know, but it’s my wall so I will do as I please 😉
I do wish I had taken more photo’s, but was running between the kitchen and bathroom at this point trying to get more than one room done concurrently.
As you can see above, I started and almost completed the tiling at this point.We decided to highlight the difference in tiles rather than trying to hide it. It would have been impossible to match the tiles on the wall anyway, so we added a border of pink tiles. Not my first choice but it matches, kind of, the rest of the bathroom floor.
So you should tile bottom up, for the vertical tile I started at the top, meaning the tiles wanted to slide down pulled down by their weight and gravity. I had expected this and did it like that anyway, so that I could be absolutely sure that the top tile matched perfectly.
I could cut a slim piece off of the tile near the bottom and it would not look out of place, but it would look terrible if I did it near the top.
It’s a wide shower but holy cow it felt tight working in there!
With all of the tiles on the wall I could turn my attention to getting it all grouted up.
I could have sworn I held the phone straight for this shot, anyway, look at the top of the vertical line of pink tiles and you will see why I started at the top. It would be hard to hide any smaller tiles there.
Just another view showing the entrance too, I tiled the step into the shower as well, it looks more finished like that.
Not the best lit shot, but I like that some light makes it through the blocks, with a solid wall it would have made the bathroom too dark I think.
… let’s get grouty!
No photo’s taken unfortunately, here is the almost finished product.
Eeeeek I can see how poorly I matched those glass blocks, the grout really highlights it :(. This is just post cleaning the extra grout off, I realised a wire brush was super effective at removing the excess grout from the glass block and did no damage to them at all. That’s all the dust lying on the floor there.
The walls still need a wash but looking tons better! Only the floor lets it down now.
More of the same, slightly different angle. It’s been a hectic journey so I am but chuffed it’s almost done.
Not too shabby considering my day job involves sitting behind a screen all day?
Paint, the, floor?!?
Yes, It would have been nicer tiled, but we thought that using the kind of paint you use to seal cement water tanks etc. would work well and not be slippery when wet.
It also does not look too bad, it’s hardly even noticeable when you are in the bathroom. It did cover well, though I gave a few coats. I tried to apply more thin coats so that it would cover the cement, but not become too smooth.
Same photo, sans all the stuff. I only pulled the masking tape off a few days later as we were preparing other stuff too.
And so this journey comes to an end, I still have a ton of stuff to do around the house (thats a good thing, I enjoy these projects!).
I hope, if you read this far, that you actually enjoyed it.
New data suggests 40% of millennials would prefer to invest in crypto assets in the event of a recession.
In a news release shared with Cointelegraph on Sept. 10, multi-asset investment platform and social network eToro cited a survey on generational investment conducted from July 18 to July 31 among 1,000 online investors in the United States. Respondents aged between 20 and 65 years represented Generation Z, millennials, and Generation X.
The survey found that more than two-thirds of U.S.-based investors are afraid of a recession, and would consider converting part of their stock portfolios to safer investments or hedge with crypto assets, commodities or real estate.
Millennials favor crypto assets
Among survey participants, 40% of millennials said that they would prefer to invest in crypto assets if a recession occurs, while 50% of Gen Z said they would choose real estate. As for Gen X, 38% said that they would hedge with commodities. Guy Hirsch, managing director of eToro U.S., said:
“We believe that if a recession were to occur, we’d see shrinking stock portfolios and growth in other asset classes like crypto, as well as new fractional ownership models. Historically, these investment opportunities have been limited to high net worth and institutional investors, but innovation is unlocking these opportunities for everyday investors and clearly, these results indicate that the demand is there.”
Join us live from the show floor at Invest: Asia, our premier crypto global investment event.
For the next two days we’ll be talking to folks like Jocelyn Chang of MakerDAO, Jeremy Allaire of Circle, and Benjamin Soong of Ledger. You’ll be able to chat with us on YouTube, ask questions and interact with our guests as we explore the booming Asian markets.
San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase may soon issue a proprietary exchange token, according to Coinbase’s head of institutional sales in Asia, Kayvon Pirestani.
Speaking on a panel Wednesday about the evolution of cryptocurrency capital formation at CoinDesk’s Invest: Asia conference, Pirestani said an initial exchange offering (IEO) platform is one of several capital-formation tools currently being explored by Coinbase.
“We think there’s a really interesting opportunity there for Coinbase,” said Pirestani, adding: “In a nutshell, Coinbase is carefully exploring not only the IEO space but also STOs [security token offerings]. But I can’t make any formal announcements right now.”
In an official statement today, the Switzerland-registered Libra Association — a not-for-profit membership organization established to govern the Libra network — explained its choice to coordinate a regulatory framework with the Swiss watchdog:
“Switzerland offers a pathway for responsible financial services innovation harmonized with global financial norms and strong oversight. We are engaging in constructive dialogue with FINMA and are encouraged to see a feasible pathway for an open-source blockchain network to become a regulated, low-friction, high-security payment system.”
FAfter a nine-month delay and $3.8 million of investment, an upstart manufacturer is ready to produce its first batch of powerful new machines for mining cryptocurrencies ethereum and ethereum classic.
Linzhi, based in Shenzen, China, said Wednesday it had ordered 37 wafers from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, the main parts that will allow it to build about 200 application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) miners. These sample units will test whether the machines can mine as efficiently as they are designed to do using ethash, the proof-of-work algorithm used on ethereum and ethereum classic.resh data from the Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Association (JVCEA) has revealed that as of April 2019, the value of yen-denominated Bitcoin (BTC) holdings has outstripped those in XRP on domestic exchanges.
As Cointelegraph Japan reported on Sept. 10, the surge in the value of exchanges’ Bitcoin holdings coincides with the beginning of Bitcoin’s 2019 bullish uptrend, which saw the top cryptocurrency hit close to $14,000 by late June.
We are testing the support line at 0.164$ that I was explaining you yesterday. I don’t think that this support will stay alive if the BTC breaks the 10k$. We could go test directly our lows around 0.155$ if it was the case. Let’s hope buyers will be there in waiting mode and will avoid that we break it.
