Written by

Toys for Tots Now Accepting Cryptocurrency Donations

Written by

TRIANGLE, VA – The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, a 5019©(3) organization whose mission is to send a message of hope to less fortunate children at Christmastime and during times of crisis or natural disaster, is excited to announce that it has started accepting donations in the following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Amp (AMP), Basic Attention Token (BAT), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), ChainLink (LINK), Dai (DAI), Dogecoin (DOGE), The Graph (GRT), Gemini Dollar (GUSD), Litecoin (LTC),  Storj (STORJ), UMA (UMA), Zcash (ZEC), 0x (ZRX), and 1inch (1INCH), and more.

The last couple of years have been challenging for industry, not only in America but worldwide.  Challenges in meeting demand for products, bottlenecks in the supply chains which bring raw materials and finished goods to our shores and distribution centers, and the countermeasures taken to address the ongoing Pandemic have caused significant delays in getting items both large and small to market.   Some of the most acute shortages have been faced by the automobile industry, where the lack of microchips has idled a large amount of inventory, unable to be delivered for lack of the “brains” to keep the vehicles running smoothly and efficiently.  Some manufacturers have reportedly resorted to delivering vehicles with some features disabled, simply to get them to customers and attempt to meet demand.

The Economics of Horse Racing

Written by

As 2021 winds to an end the state of thoroughbred racing in the United States is a decidedly mixed bag. The economics of the industry have seen healthy numbers impelled in part by additional cash injected into the economy at large, the resumption of full racing cards compared to 2020, and increased visibility on television and via the internet. The sales of thoroughbreds at auction have seen robust gains in most categories and increased pricing on yearlings and breeding stock. The combination of a healing economy, inflationary increases in cash in the economy and a workforce increasingly at home with access to daily television and online betting have led to healthy betting handles for most American racetracks.  Lest one get too confident over the health of the sport there are ominous clouds ahead amid evidence of significant criminal malfeasance and ineffective oversight within the industry.
