Nelson Mandela’s 'hands' sell for $10m Bitcoin

Solid Gold castings of the hands of South Africa’s first black President Nelson Mandela have been sold for $10m (£7m) in bitcoin. The castings of the late former South African president’s hand, palm and fist are believed to be the only ones left in the world.

According to a report by BBC Africa, Canadian crypto-currency exchange firm Arbitrade bought four casts from South African businessman Malcolm Duncan. The firm said it planned to launch a global “Golden Hands of Nelson Mandela” tour to educate young people about the anti-apartheid icon’s life. 

Nelson?Mandela?

This is the first time artefacts of late Mandela have been sold in bitcoin. Mandela died in 2013 at the age of 95. He had turned into a global brand, with businessmen and artists cashing in on his name. 

Duncan, who now lives in Canada, bought the casts from mining group Harmony Gold in 2002 for about $31,000. Half of the money paid to Harmony Gold was meant to go to charity, but it remains unclear as to whether that happ…

Data Scandal: Facebook's stock has plunged 18%, wiping out nearly $80 billion in market value

On Tuesday, Facebook shares fell by 5% following reports that CEO Mark Zuckerberg agreed to testify in front of Congress about the company's data scandal.



The crisis began on March 16 after Facebook said it was suspending data analysis company Cambridge Analytica for allegedly harvesting data from more than 50 million Facebook users. Cambridge Analytica worked on Donald Trump's presidential campaign. 



Since then, Facebook's stock has plunged 18%, wiping out nearly $80 billion from the social networking giant's market value in the process. Zuckerberg's net worth has fallen by about $14 billion (he is still worth $61 billion, though). 



Tech stocks in general have taken a hit since the Facebook allegations first came to light. The Nasdaq is down 6%.  And other social media companies, most notably YouTube owner Google and Twitter, have both nosedived as well.



Shares of Google parent Alphabet (GOOGL) fell 7% since March 16 while Twitter has plunged 20%. Twitter (TWTR) wa…

Obasanjo playing politics with his letter to President Buhari'' Bola Tinubu says

National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and former governor of Lagos State, Bola Tinubu, yesterday said that former president Olusegun Obasanjo was playing politics with the concerns he raised about the state of the nation in his letter sent to presidnet Buhari last week. Tinubu said this when he spoke to newsmen after a meeting with Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha.
“Obasanjo wrote it about the government. It is a very good awareness on his part and they are both from the same background. I believe that is the doctrine of Military Officers (retired) because he has unrestricted access to the President, either through the Council of State or by any other means that he need to see the current President privately and he was his junior in the Army. So I think Obasanjo was playing politics with his public letter that’s all I see. He could have used other means, he met him in the AU too he has a way of discussing privately but the letter is being responded to …
