FA lucky no more action was taken after one-match stadium ban while Chelsea star Lukaku in a language league of his own

THE FA can have few complaints over Uefa’s one-match stadium ban due to the behaviour of fans in the Euro 2020 final against Italy and the total lack of security.

But the FA are lucky no action was taken over the thousands who barged into the semi against Denmark and the Germany game.

It seems the relationship between Wembley security and the Met Police could be better.


FANCY buying into a football club?

Is Estonia, The 1st To Regulate Crypto, Now Killing It Off?

Imagine constructing a building only to tear it down because you’re not happy with the foundation. That’s exactly what Matis Mäeker, head of the Estonian Financial Intelligence Unit, wants to do with the country’s crypto regulations, according to a local media report last week. 

Located in Northern Europe, the small Baltic nation of Estonia consists of 1,500 islands, lush forests and numerous lakes. Once a part of the Soviet Union, Estonia has centuries of history as a battleground where Denmark, Germany, Poland, Russia and Sweden fought wars to control this access-point between East and West.

Estonia was also a trailblazer in the world of cryptocurrencies. It was one of the first countries to issue licenses to crypto businesses in 2017. These licenses were for two types of crypto businesses, ones that were looking to run an exchange and ones that were looking to undertake an initial coin offering. 

Additionally, the Estonian government offered “digital residence” which allowed entrepreneurs or their companies to legally base themselves in Estonia, even if the businesses operated elsewhere. This made it easier to obtain licenses in the country, which in turn…


Culture Round-Up: Mermaid mayday at the Blue Planet aquarium

The Blue Planet aquarium in Amager is again hiring freedivers to dress up as mermaids and tap on the glass as delighted visitors walk past – an added bonus for those gawping at hammerhead sharks and rays in its giant tanks.

The aquarium contends that its performance during the ongoing autumn holiday will be critical in its bid to stave off bankruptcy – a threat that has been ever-present since the onset of corona.

After all, those fish aren’t going to feed themselves.

Make a MobilePay donation
Showing up to enjoy the antics of the five freedivers will help the aquarium to cover the costs of its inmates’ food bills and staff salaries, as will buying an annual pass or making a donation via MobilePay (435576).

Over the summer, the aquarium ‘auctioned’ its animals via Den Blå Avis, and bitcoin billionaire Niklas Nikolajsen von Karlhof ‘paid’ 560,000 kroner for Otto the Octopus.

Adult octopuses feed on other fish, and even octopi, so hurry up with that donation!

Bitcoin vs. Ethereum basics

As you can see from the table below, Ethereum is a babe in arms compared to big brother Bitcoin — it has only been on the market since 2015. It’s not surprising then, that Bitcoin’s market capitalization is more than double Ethereum’s. Though Ethereum’s price has grown more dramatically this year.
