Endlich ist es geschafft! Meine ersten Bücher sind auf Amazon Kindle online. Mit der Handy-App „Kindle“ kann man nun ganz einfach die Bücher am Smartphone lesen. So einfach wie noch nie!
Wer hätte gedacht, dass ich nochmal Autor werde? Nun wahrscheinlich keiner, aber Tatsache ist, dass ich nun schon 12 Bücher veröffentlicht habe und ich schätze der finanzielle Erfolg wird sich auch bald einstellen. Meine Bücher findet ihr auf Amazon hier. Ich halte meine liebe Community auf jeden Fall auf dem Laufenden und verspreche euch: I’ll keep you updated.
AT&T launched its 5G+ service at the tail end of 2018 and then expanded into several new markets throughout most of this year. That 5G+ network wasn’t for consumers, though, and was instead only available to business customers. For regular folk like us, AT&T has other plans that will go live over the coming weeks. AT&T will launch regular 5G before the end of 2019 and offer up one of Samsung’s best phones to connect to it.
AT&T 5G Network and Cities
Before we close out 2019, AT&T will turn on their 5G network over low-band (sub-6) spectrum that will spread out over large swaths of land and cover millions of people outside of cities, unlike its 5G+ network that can’t reach much beyond a block. The first phone capable of connecting to it will be the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G.
This low-band 5G will launch initially in Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Providence, Rochester, and San Diego. Following those cities, they’ll push 5G into Boston, Las Vegas, Milwaukee, New York City, San Francisco, Birmingham, Bridgeport, Conn., Buffalo, Louisville, and San Jose. After that, the plan is to push nationwide 5G over the first half of 2020.
With this low-band 5G, the focus will be on reach. As you’ll see in the graphic below, sub-6 spectrum can reach customers that are almost 2 miles out, which will help AT&T cover much greater areas than they can with their current 5G+ (mmW) setup. Low-band 5G is the portion of a 5G world that may not produce 2Gbps download speeds, but will still offer low latency connections for gaming, navigation, and real-time communications. Think of it as really good 4G LTE, only with a snappier signal.
So yeah, AT&T is launching 5G for consumers using low-band (sub-6) spectrum that will bring greater reach and accessibility to many people. It’ll start to go live over the coming weeks in the markets we listed above. We’ll let you know as it goes live!
This is the first issue of a weekly series where we will explore the mechanics behind major Open Finance protocols and evaluate them on a fundamental basis.
The first project we’re looking at is Synthetix ($SNX), a platform to gain exposure to a variety of real-world and crypto assets – without users or another party needing to hold them.
Details on how Synthetix works can be found on the asset page, but in short, it uses an „infinite liquidity“ peer-to contract model that relies on a pool of collateral to creates synthetic assets. Similar to how DAI represents $1 and it is backed by ETH, sUSD represents $1 and is backed by SNX. Where Synthetix differs is that you can take the dollar-pegged asset and go the Synthetix Exchange to change it to represent $1 of BTC. This exchange (which is really just a repricing of debt owed to the system) charges a 0.3% fee which is available to claim for those staking the collateral/minting the assets.
If you were looking to measure the growth of this network, a key indicator would be the exchange volume and related fees charged.
In March, Synthetix implemented changes to its monetary policy, opting for inflation to subsidize stakers. This change was pivotal in bootstrapping interest in creating assets to be exchanged, and as you can see, volume started picking up towards the end of spring. As the volume increased and more fees were paid to stakers, the SNX tokens become more valuable. This fundamental growth of the network was reflected in the price of the token over time demonstrating a shift towards a more rational market. Going forward as the inflation rate decreases, the exchange volume will be a key indicator of the overall growth of the network and the sustainability of the SNX market.
Apple junkies know the pain of your iPhone dying, only to then turn to your Apple Watch and see it’s running low as well. Even worse? When the AirPods are in need of a charge, too! Fortunately, there’s a convenient charging solution thanks to the 3-in-1 Wireless Power Bank for Apple iWatch, iOS & AirPods.

Black Friday has come and gone, but we're not done with pre-holiday deals by a long shot. Cyber Monday starts in just a few hours, and many retailers have their sales live already. For tonight, the bargains are pretty similar to what they were earlier this week, but plenty of them are still really great deals. New deals are sure to be flying all day Monday, so be sure to check back often.
