Challenge the Mind

Have you noticed how kids these days spend their time and energy? Playing mindless games, that’s how. Any game that is high on everyone’s list especially on social media is a game of their choice. But does it challenge their minds? Based on my observation of the kids around me, sons and nephews of friends, games are for enjoyment and, mostly, nothing more than that.

I recognize the need for enjoyment of most people nowadays. What with the stress brought about by this virus, we truly need a respite now and then. My worry, though, is when the kids keep on doing activities that don’t even stimulate their minds, they might find themselves with dull brains.

Enter Gancube, the global leader in the speedcube industry. A gan cube visit told me that the enterprise was founded by Mr. Gan-Yuan Jiang in 2014. He was the speedcubing pioneer in China so you can say that he really knew what he was doing when he founded the company. Gancube has its arms in research and development, design, manufacture, marketing and promotion, and wholesale of speedcubes worldwide. Categories you can choose from are Intelligence, Magnetism, Lite Cubes, Infinity Customize, GAN Aliens, Cubing Sets, Accessories, and Limited Editions. These products are being sold worldwide and are considered the “Apple Inc.” in the speedcubing industry.

If you want your kid to enjoy and sharpen his mind while enjoying his game, get him a speedcube. A gan cube solver or felix zemdegs, that is. Solve it while having fun! Challenging the mind has never been more enjoyable than this. And, who knows, your kid can even advance to a level wherein he would be joining competitions involving speedcubes! Train them using a Gancube product.

I am all for having fun. I am all for de-stressing especially during this period of our lives. But there is nothing wrong in incorporating a mind challenge to our choice of activity. Am I right?

What is Bitcoin?

I’ve been researching about this not-so-new financial investment scheme that is going viral on the internet. It is called Bitcoin. I still don’t know much about it except it’s a cryptocurrency and, for now, only a few establishments accept it as a mode of payment.

My curiosity has been peaked because I see a couple of friends of mine in Facebook posting about it. They invested their hard-earned money in a Bitcoin club network and have been boasting about their investment growing every single day. They actually call it mining.

I also would love for my money to earn that much, to increase in value by leaps and bounds. But my concern is this: who regulates it? When you invest in stocks, there are actual, real, physical companies who own those. When you invest in bank notes, short/long-term money market instruments, there are banks who regulate it. But with Bitcoin, being that it is a digital currency, who regulates it? Who can you run to when you find yourself without your money all of a sudden? Who will you run after when the Bitcoin clubs crash and you lose all the Bitcoin money you have?

Of course, it could be that we are all just ignorant of it now and, in time, it will become widely-accepted that we would regret not investing on/buying it right away.

Do you know Bitcoin? What do you think about it?
