Cryptobizglobal or Crypto Biz Global is a crypto content website that was established after realising that there was a huge information gap in the developing markets concerning crypto currencies. Unlike other crypto news website Cryptobizglobal does not limit itself to ptovidion of news but also provision of content concerning cryptocurrencies. According to the founder of this website, he first heard about bitcoin in 2013 despite bitcoin having come into the scene in 2008. In addition everyone whom he asked about bitcoin said that it was a scam which made the founder be disinterested in the crypto currencies. It was until 2015 when a client of the founder offered to pay with bitcoin that the author decided to do his own research and learn about cryptocurrencies.

It was after reading the bitcoin white paper that the author realised the fundamentals of bitcoin and decided to be fully involved in cryptocurrencies. However, he realised that just like him there were so many other people who were interested with information about cryptocurrencies but would not become involved because they had received the wrong kind of information.

Cryptobizglobal was therefore established to fill the information gap that exists in the developing countries. There is huge misinformation peddled mostly by the government that bitcoin is a scam. People therefore fail to use crypto currencies because they consider them to be a scam.

Other than the government, those in the know scam enthusiastic number of people who want to join the crypto scene. Large numbers of people have been scammed by scrupulous traders who take advantage of naïve investors who want to invest in bitcoin and other crypto currencies but they do not know how to invest. Cryptobizglobal strives to protect the investors from scam by providing information about all crypto currencies. Cryptobizglobal also offers information about upcoming ICO’s which are credible and assists the new entrants into the crypto scene to know how to spot scammers and scam cryptocurrency projects.

In addition Cryptobizglobal endeavours to promote and create awareness about crypto currencies that have genuine use case such as smart contracts, store of value, privacy and cheap transactions. Cryptobizglobal ensures that bitcoin and cryptocurrency enthusiasts in developing countries have the true information about crypto currencies.

Are you Addicted to Bad Relationships?

18 Sep

Do you often find that you involve yourself in relationships that disappoint you? Are you not getting what you need and desire from the people you choose to date? Does there always seem to be something missing? If you answered yes to one or all of those questions, you could very well be addicted to disappointing and bad relationships, setting yourself up for failure without even knowing it. There are ways you can determine whether you are addicted or not, and ways you can break the addiction and start getting what you have always wanted from a relationship.

Before we cover the symptoms of addiction, it is important that we cover the dangers of staying in a bad relationship. Since bad relationships lack what one or both partners’ need, stress becomes a regular part of your life, as well a gradual lowering of your self-esteem, which will make you unable to focus on your career and personal life with the concentration and care needed, in order for you to be happy. The constant stress will produce chemical changes in your body that drain your energy and make you more eligible for physical illnesses. Physical abuse in a relationship is obvious to cause a lot of physical harm, along with great psychological damage, but in spite of these facts, many people still choose to proceed with such relationships, finding themselves trapped and incapable of leaving. They find themselves depressed, on a search for some relief and unfortunately becoming depressed and possibly turning to drugs and alcohol.

So what are the symptoms of this addiction? Ignoring the truth would be one. If you truly know that the relationship you are in is making you unhappy but make no effort to exit from it, then you are in denial and are holding yourself hostage in a situation you do not have to be in. Making excuses for your partner’s disappointing and bad behavior will keep you trapped and is another huge symptom of bad relationship addiction, especially if the excuses you produce do not back up the facts and are unrealistic. If you do finally build up the courage to confront your partner to leave him or her but are overcome with fear and therefore back off from the confrontation, you are a high and sure victim of addiction because no matter what you attempt, you find yourself always giving in and holding on to what you know is bad for you. Suffering from both physical and mental discomfort once broken up, unless you get back together, is yet another symptom of addiction and should not be denied or ignored.


My hero–George Wachiuri

27 Mar

Today I will write about a person I admire and whose story is inspiring. One guy who inspires me nowadays is George Wachiuri who runs Optiven enterprise Limited, one of the Kenya’s most success small and medium enterprises. I met him once when I was working as a salesperson. He also happened to have addressed us when I was in Jomo Kenyatta University having been invited by the University’s Christian Union. I mostly admire his Christian values. In Kenya which is one of the most corrupt countries in the globe, having a honest business person is very difficult and rare. So, when you find such a person you must admire him for his outstanding character against all odds. George Wachiuri runs Optiven enterprise a real estate company that sell develops and sells land property. If you want to invest in real estate in Kenya, Optiven is the company of choice. In country where more than dozen real estate companies are briefcase companies with reputation of selling illegal parcels of land, Optiven is the company to buy from a clean piece of real estate. Their value addition services also make it ideal for speculators to purchase for the company.

In 2015 see the Big God

27 Jan

2015 is year now here with us and the first month is almost over. Resolutions have now been made by those who make them (I am not among them) and now the year is on top gear. Some like me are discouraged by previous unaccomplished resolutions they made in the previous years and therefore are not making any new resolutions. I have seen that every year has got its own share of hurts, discouragements, pain, losses, gains, favour as well as high and low moments. Let me call those bad times as giants. With all the giants around it becomes difficult to feel accomplished especially when seeking to accomplish anything new and profound. Whenever, I compare what I desire to achieve by focusing on what I have, I usually feel low and deprived as I may not have enough to do it. I am however comfortable with having enough to survive and live day to day.
Sometimes I do ponder and ask what it takes to achieve. Everyone was made to be an achiever and do extra ordinary things yet sometimes even doing the ordinary is challenging. Now why does God entrust us to do those extraordinary things yet we have little in our hands? God’s purpose and vision for me is usually larger than our self-sufficiency. Just like the way God of Israel commanded them to face of giants and evict them from land of Canaan yet the inhabitants of Canaan were giantsin Numbers 13:33 ‘And there we saw the Nephilim (the sons of Anak, who come from the Nephilim); and we seemed to ourselves like grasshoppers, and so we seemed to them.”(RSV),.  God sometimes commands us to face off with giants. Our positions in God and God expectation on us are sometimes way too far from our wildest imaginations. Yet we are expected to act and deliver if we are to please him. Like the ten spies who saw themselves as grasshoppers before the giants, sometimes one can feel like a grasshopper when comparing oneself with the dictates of circumstances.
In the midst of all those giants, God expects us to be victorious. The mistake that I always do and you may have done it is comparing the challenge with myself. Indeed I am smaller compare with the challenge, yet the challenge is minute compared with God. God gives us those challenges because He expects us to compare the challenges with Him and hence see Him fighting for us. This is what David in the bible did, he did not compare the Goliath with himself, he compared Goliath with God of Israel and with that mentality, David knew that Goliath was nothing compared to God. 1 Samuel 17:45 ‘Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword and with a spear and with a javelin; but I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied’(RSV). This year, I may have resolution now not because there will be no challenges but because the challenges are minute compared with my Big God. I am now seeing the invisible one behind me and fighting for me. Now it no longer depends with my strength but with the strength of God at work in me.
My dear readers have a great year aware that God expects you to accomplish more than you have planned. See Him behind you. Amen


My Fiance Never Was My ‘Boyfriend’

26 Sep

A great read here.

There's a Fire Starter In You

Ever since the engagement, many people have asked me questions about my relationship and the most prevalent one is “how long did you guys date?” The truth is we never did. He never asked me to be his girlfriend. He never asked me out on a solo date. We never even kissed. For as long as I’ve known him we were just friends… Friends that valued each other, prayed for one another, and wanted to see each other succeed in every area of life.


Now within this friendship, I admit, there were times when I looked at him like “Dang, he’s cute” or “I really admire this about him” or “I would love for my mate to have some of his qualities” but honestly there were A LOT of guys that I would say the very same thing about! Soon enough, I learned how to categorize the guys in my life by placing…

Why I won’t lend any of my books?

7 Feb

A room without books is like a body without a soul. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero.


I like reading and I am an avid reader. However do not mistake my reading with reading for class work or in order to be examined by a teacher. I love reading as a hobby and as a way of extracting knowledge. I am a deep learner and I always want to have new knowledge and to remind myself of what I learnt long time ago. In fact, if it were possible I would have my own large personal library with all manner of books. When I can afford it I ensure that I purchase several books.

I have nevertheless noted that there are folks who do not purchase books. All they want is to borrow my personal copy and read it. ‘I cannot afford it.’ They say. Or other say, ‘I am a fast reader I will have finished it in week and given it back to you.’ I have been kind enough to them for some time until I realised that I do not have any books in my library. The folks I lend my books to do not bother to return and when I enquire about it they say they have not finished or are not in a position to return it. Those who are faithful enough to return it return it in a poor condition that I am ashamed to to consider it my own. For this reason I have decided that I will not be lending books. If I really want to share the knowledge in that book with a friend all I will do is to purchase it for them.

What folks who borrow books do not realise is that I bought the books because I wanted to posses that knowledge and to use the books as a point of reference when I wanted to remind myself about something I learnt from it. If all I wanted was to read it once, all I would have gone to the library and borrowed it like I do on many instances. I purchase a book because I want to reward the author for his great work. I also purchase a book because I want to refer to it severally not once or twice. I purchase a book because it contains treasure that I want to posses for a long time. Hey folk do not feel bad when I keep you out of my library.

See others who also discovered what I have discovered and I agree with their sentiments.  

For books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them; they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them. ~ John Milton.

Books are the carriers of civilization. Without books, history is silent, literature dumb, science crippled, thought and speculation at a standstill. They are engines of change, windows on the world, lighthouses erected in the sea of time. ~ Barbara W. Tuchman.

Unless their use by readers brings them to life, books are indeed dead things. ~ Lawrence Clark Powell.

A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting. ~ Henry David Thoreau.




2 Aug

I love teachers. I admire teachers. I was born by parents who were career teachers. I am a product of teachers. I therefore sympathise with the plight of teachers. I understand that they are not well remunerated compared with other government workers. I know that they are sneered and not appreciated by parents of the children they tirelessly teach. I know that teaching is not a career of the faint hearted and for self seekers. I also hold entrepreneurial interest in the education industry. I have therefore sided with teachers in their endeavour (STRIKES) to have their meagre salaries increased. However majority of the colleagues and general public are of contrary opinion and I sought to find why the public would be against people who equipped them with knowledge. 

Even as teachers seek to engage in another industrial action to defend their pay, I would like them to know that public opinion is not in their favour. Kenyan youths who are jobless are very bitter with teachers. They blame them for misleading them by teaching them irrelevance. How can one be jobless after spending seventeen years in school courtesy of teachers’ exhortation that good grade will secure good employment only to find out that employers are not interested in grades but experience and skills?  I wish every teacher’s goal was to ensure that what they taught was relevant and that each of their student succeeded or at least got employed in life. Teachers would be heroes, everyone would appreciate teachers.

Kenyan parents are equally bitter with the current crop of teachers in public schools. Recent survey by Uwezo Kenya indicated that majority of class seven pupils could not compute basic mathematics. The quality of education they are offering is not satisfactory at all. Absenteeism of teachers from class, conducting personal businesses during work hours characterise many teachers. This has made it difficult for teachers to defend their pay increase on the basis of performance. Teachers also refused to sign performance contracts which they would have used to convince public that they already have results. As it is now, the quality of education in public schools remains poor and unacceptable.

It is surprising that private school teachers who are paid lower salaries produce more impressive results than teachers in public schools. The public cannot accept the theory that students in public schools underperform because of teachers are poorly paid. Teachers should therefore justify why they should be paid more through good performance of their pupils.

Teaching is a career that is defined by morals. The public expects teachers to have high moral standing not only in words but also in deeds. The same teachers who punished us whenever we went on rampage in high school and in university should also be punished when they engage in an illegal strike. Otherwise teachers will lose the moral authority of punishing their students when they engage or go on strike. The double standard applied by teachers has created a sense of impunity among Kenyans where majority of Kenyans are law breakers. If you want prove it go anywhere with this sign “ Usikojoe hapa” you will be shocked with what you see.  Teachers are the moral compass in the society, they do not teach us skills alone they are responsible for instilling moral values. Picketing in the streets is inappropriate for teachers.

To cut the short story, teachers should know that teaching is like preaching as my father would say. You don’t do it because you are paid; you do it because it is a divine calling. Every teacher with divine calling is a great teacher. Teachers who teach because it was the most available job that they found are usually ineffective.  Teaching is not a career for every Tom, Dick and Harry and those who join it should not do it because of the material rewards. Even Saint Paul warned against having too many teachers, because teachers will be judged by a higher standard than the students. Teaching profession should be for those who derive much satisfaction from seeing their pupils or students becoming more knowledgeable, informed and educated. Material rewards should serve as a compliment.  

To all selfless teachers who devote many hours in their noble calling, don’t lose heart, keep at it, it is only God who can pay you.

Regards to Mrs Lucy Kimani, my lower primary school teacher, Mr. James Gichuru for instilling in me arithmetic literacy, Mrs. Rachael Kimani for your care, Mrs. Beth Maina for discovering my abilities; Mr. John Onguso my high school teacher for restoring my esteem. I esteem all of you highly.
