Nugget (4 March 2021)

Published 4 March 2021


Bite size updates on the real important stuff related to Tech, Trends, Business and the Planet.

I learnt a lot of new things over the last few days, here are your nuggets:

Luno (South African Tech business) has officially reached seven million customers. I joined them last month to try out some Bitc0in. Luno has ranked in the top six cryptocurrency exchanges worldwide in the latest CryptoCompare Exchange Benchmark. So far, I have made R30 on my R500 investment. Great App.

A quick update on Hydrogen and sustainable power in South Africa.

There are rumblings in the sector. A recent Nedbank webinar involving Koen Langie, a Engie Africa Power and Gas senior hydrogen solution developer (what a mouthful for a work title), proposed South Africa has $100-Billion Green Hydrogen Export Potential. (SA has always had export potential, we need to work this resource better to ensure we see an excellent return)

Chem SA (with website: https://www.chemsa.co.za/ opened a multimillion Rand commercial fuel cell production factory at the Dube TradePort Special Economic Zone (www.dubetradeport.co.za) in Kwazulu-Natal area. Their intent is to manufacture the latest generation of fuel cell products for backup and continuous off-grid telecom power solutions.

More to follow in later posts on Hydrogen projects in South Africa. Exciting stuff!

Many people don’t know that ‘Denisovans’ was our closest evolutionary relative to the animal kingdom. It is highly probable that every race on the planet alive today had their original roots from the north African regions and then travelled to the rest of the World. This means absolutely every person is African. How about that.

Shell has announced an impressive plan to roll out 500000 electronic charging stations in the next 4 years. There are an estimated 1 billion passenger cars world-wide. When and where in South Africa do we currently have e-stations? Jaguar has a cool map: https://www.jaguar.co.za/electrifica.../jaguar-powerway.html and here is another website to use as well: https://www.electromaps.com/.../charging.../south-africa

The Brazilian Rainforest has been abused for a very long time, and the response by their government has been a subject of much negative debate. Very recently Amazonia-1 (image post) was launched to help monitor the forest from space, it is the first satellite entirely developed by the country. Well done! Remember knowledge is nothing without action, and I hope the information attained is put to good use.
