Scientists create 'tooth cracker' device to harvest stem cells

  Scientists create 'tooth cracker' device to harvest stem cells That pesky wisdom tooth you're glad you got rid of is apparently a great source of stem cells that could save lives. The "Tooth Cracker 5000" has a clamp that holds a tooth in place while a blade carefully cracks it. This method doesn't damage or contaminate the pulp and results in a perfectly halved tooth -- the team proved that the technique is effective by testing it on 25 teeth samples and achieving a 100 percent success rate. The scientists were able to harvest 80 percent of those sample pulps' stem cells, which is four times more than what you could typically extract from a pulp that was extracted by drilling or shattering teeth.

The idea of Amazon adding bitcoin as an acceptable form of payment is intriguing.  Its revenue last year was $135.98 billion. Adding bitcoin on their platform would confirm Bitcoin as an acceptable form of payment.  If Amazon successfully implements and brings bitcoin on their platform, it would only be a matter of time before we hear eBay making a similar announcement. After all the entire idea to remain in the game of the online shops is to provide users the best and most efficient way of shopping and Ebay’s annual revenue is $8.97 billion.

Bitcoin Competitors Are Being Built in Ex-Google Coders' Laptops

  Bitcoin Competitors Are Being Built in Ex-Google Coders' Laptops Bitcoin’s seemingly unstoppable surge to record highs isn’t deterring competitors. Former Silicon Valley developers are working on at least two new versions of the digital currency. Basecoin is seeking to solve bitcoin’s volatility with a team of former Google Inc. coders that are building what they hope will be a more stable version of the cryptocurrency. Cypherium has former Google, Amazon Inc. and Microsoft Corp. developers building a blockchain that aims to be able to handle an expanded workload more easily.

Amazon thinking of accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment

You brain waves would also bring the idea that if giants like eBay and Amazon would accept Bitcoin, what about the biggest giant?  Alibaba is the biggest online shopping platform in Asia and in order to service their clients it would also find a way to bring bitcoin as a method of payment for their users, especially when the firm makes smashing revenues on Single’s Day.  Alibaba holds the crown for the world’s online shopping event. Retailers scrambled on Alibaba platform to sell their products and its revenue for Single’ Day in 2016  ($17.8 billion) surpassed the previous year by $3.5 billion dollars. This really gives you the scope where the price of bitcoin could go if Alibaba and eBay add bitcoin to their list.

A vast number of power plants in Australia have aged and this has substantially pushed up the energy prices in the country. Australians have suffered from several power outages for the past two years and the country requires investment in order to meet the demand. RCMA which specializes in commodity and energy market is looking at ways to provide cheap energy in the country. The managing director of the firm is investing big in gas as it is much cheaper and also cleaner than coal. The firm would invest in their onshore gas field and the company would start a retail electricity trading in Western Australia. That would employ efficient and smart solutions for their consumers and as a part of this, they may include blockchain to pay electricity bills.

This really tells you the scope about the acceptance of the cryptocurrency.

Fears over 'bubble' in bitcoin cryptocurrency .
In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made the first purchase of physical goods using Bitcoin. He paid 10,000 bitcoin for two pizzas.Five thousand bitcoin per pizza seemed like a fair deal at the time.Today, the same amount would buy you a Notting Hill mansion, valued at £17m. In fact, the sellers of 4 Stanley Gardens will only accept bids in bitcoin - not pounds or dollars.It's a long journey for the currency, long favoured by hackers and libertarians, and the de facto currency of the black market of the dark web.Bitcoin was released in 2009 by the elusive Satoshi Nakamoto, who remains unidentified today.
