    The Top Cryptocurrency Stories for May 31
    The Bitcoin company Blockchain has reached 25 million wallets. Founded in 2011, the firm is one of the oldest cryptocurrency companies. The company now has more customers than the brokerage giants TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: AMTD) and Charles Schwab Corp. (NYSE: SCHW) combined, according to Blockchain. Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse has offered a bullish outlook for his crypto firm. The executive said that he thinks that Bitcoin will have less influence over other cryptocurrency prices in the future. Garlinghouse cited the improving knowledge of other cryptocurrencies and their underlying platforms. “There’s a very high correlation between the price of XRP and the price of Bitcoin, but ultimately these are independent open-sourced technologies. It’s early, over time you’ll see a more rational market and behaviors that reflect that,” he said in an interview with CNBC. According to reports, Venezuela has banned the import of cryptocurrency-mining equipment, including hardware, graphics cards, and computers. This is a surprising decision, given that Venezuela is one of the least expensive places in the world to mine Bitcoin.

The investment bank’s first six months of 2018 were its strongest in nine years. The stock slipped after the company announced that president David Solomon will be replacing CEO Lloyd Blankfein when he steps down from his role. Blankfein has been CEO for 12 years. It’s fair to say that Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) went to the dogs on Monday. The company has extended its Prime Day promotion through 3 a.m. on Wednesday. The announcement came after the firm suffered significant outages during the start of the event on Monday afternoon. Rather than get access to deals, many customers were met with pictures of dogs, the firm’s standard error page. Finally, pay close attention to events on Capitol Hill on Tuesday. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee will question leaders of Alphabet Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOGL), Twitter Inc. (NYSE: TWTR), and Facebook Inc. (Nasdaq: FB) about how they store and filter user content.

Best Medical Stocks To Watch Right Now

When my friend Seth asked me to invest in his new wine store, the decision was easy…   He'd already answered the most important question you must ask before making an investment.   Most investors forget to ask this question. But as I'll explain today, if you know how to answer it, you'll set yourself apart from the crowd…   I got to know Seth while I was in medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and he was the wine buyer for a local grocery store… He was educated as a chef and was working on his Master Sommelier badge. (A "sommelier" or "wine steward" is the wine expert at high-end restaurants. You must pass an exam to throw around the snooty French title, and "master" is the highest level of certification.)   Seth always gave great suggestions for meal and wine pairings and would remember them months later… As a customer, I could tell he cared about me, listened, and gave great advice (a spectacular combination). So when he approached me about backing his shop… I knew he understood wine and had a passion for it.

    The ongoing trade rift between the United States and China continues to plague international markets. Despite reports that both countries are working behind the scenes to prevent additional detrimental trade policies, both countries recently proposed tens of billions in new tariffs on one another. The United States has accused China of widespread intellectual property theft, while China has accused the United States of unfair trade practices, including price manipulation in the agricultural industry. This morning, it’s worth noting that proposed tariffs on U.S. business jets will likely not provide a competitive advantage to foreign competition. Reuters reports that Chinese aviation executives do not see the layer of protectionism as a way to bolster the nation’s local market.
