And I’m kinda confused on one thing , when possibly will the market TOP? is it this year 2024 NOV or 2025 November.. the year Dey always confuse me .. I know no one can accurately predict what the market will do, but from all indications, you guys are close to being ‘perfect’..

Kindly note that, this is part of ME doing my own research.
On behalf of everyone, I say we appreciate your invaluable contributions. Thank you so much..
No one knows if there will be another Shiba, but I can say that Shiba made a record, and records are meant to be broken.

Hopefully, we may have, but the issue is not buying the coin but staying in it and riding it almost to the top.

As for the market top, most believe that anything outside NOV 2025, you are on your own. A bull market is sentimentally meant to last 18 months. It may even be less than that...a black swan event may happen between...

Hi bro.
Please, kindly recommend good prop firms and criteria for joining. Thanks.
Well, I know of two:

1) Maven trading (https://maventrading.com/faqs/)

It is also advertised here on Nairaland. You will need to pass their challenge before you can be funded.

2) Another one I heard is good is Tentrade (https://tentrade.com/). No challenge before getting funded. Though expensive.

What many of you should do is find solid coins, invest, leave the trading market, hunt airdrops...and drink cold beer with your legs stretched out.

If at all I want to trade, I only use prop firms to practise now...at least they get BTC, ETH and other alt coins.

The COVID jabs say hi
Treadway:
Likely effects of too much stress.

Na everything naija people go call village people matter. Whether this person dey pack like 16 shifts and only gets maybe 1hr of sleep in a day, una no know. Someone drops dead and boom, y'all call village people. Hilarious!

Like I always say, not to sound insensitive, but here is another reminder that life and death can happen to anyone anytime anywhere. That is just the way life is. If na your time, na your time...presence or absence of world class healthcare ain't gonna stop the inevitable.

Two years ago, a friend in the US also had a cardiac arrest, at 35. Had to get a pacemaker after a very close call, as he said he was told he was defibrillated 36 times. Lucky for him, it wasn't his time. But it really was a wake up call to me that we need to do better and not put too much stress or pressure on ourselves. Back in the day these conditions were unheard of among people in their 30's, but today I can't count how many peers home and abroad have died or had a close shave with death from all these ailments and conditions that were hitherto the problems of people in their 50s and 60s.

I must be! I must be! is all well and good, but try make e no dey at the expense of your health and well being, cos when the lights go out, it's a wrap!

Hmmm, can you break it down a bit more ? Like you’re explaining to a primary 5 student abeg.
Interested
Let's just say it is a phone built on the ton blockchain for easy access to Web3. It comes pre-loaded with a universal DApp (Decentralized Application) store featuring over 600 Web3 apps based on the TON ecosystem.
-------------------------------------------
Now, imagine a special toy you can use to play on the playground of the Ton ecosystem.... You now have the right to eat the Ton's national cake first anytime Mum bake for the family....

or another kid is born and added to the family, and you are given sweeties, cakes, lollipops first (airdrops) before the town's boys arrive (crowds) to celebrate his birthday, all because you contributed to the family when they first launched the smartphone project.

That's the explanation...hope you get.

UPDATE

I'm sure some on this thread must have heard of Solana Saga smartphone when it came out then. The first batch sold for [b]$1,000[/b] and gave back ~ $9,000 in different tokens (airdrop) to those who pre-ordered it.

Now, there is a TON 💎 smartphone which intends to challenge the Solana Saga smartphone. I have ordered mine, too. It looks promising (NFA).

This phone should reward you with the BIGGEST airdrops ever in the TON ecosystem!. I hope it won't disappoint and deliver like Solana.

It is called Universal Basic Smartphone (UBS) by Oyster Labs


If you want to order, use this link: https://api.universalphone.xyz/preorder?ref=9b100469-c9d0-4234-9e7e-9a4de463d093


You can add this referral code if it has not been added already: 9b100469-c9d0-4234-9e7e-9a4de463d093


You will also get 300 $OYS points (perhaps tokens).


I heard that a few days back, $FISH 🐟 (the biggest memecoin on TON in the animal category) was airdropped to wallets that preordered the TON-based smartphone.

I believe with this, more is yet to come, hopefully!

Just don't want to fade this, and I am sharing it with the community here if you are yet to know.


Cost: $160 (less than 24 TON)

Goodluck

To be honest, I pursued a PhD not because I had interest in academics but because I have long-term projections of seeking elective positions or political appointments. For me, it was more of building my resume and pedigree than anything else. Of course, I had and still have a strong interest in my area of research (which by the way pertains to the Petroleum Industry) but outside that, I do not see myself as a good lecturer.

May I also add that the current salary structure (CONUASS) used by the University Community pays circa 200k+ for Lecturer II with 3 years post-PhD experience?

To be very honest, there's been a lot of opportunities in academics for me post-PhD but that is not my focus. Though I recently just earned the degree, I am now seeking post-doc opportunities abroad while actively seeking for a transfer of service or a better appointment 😀
Ah...now I understand. I'm almost done with my PhD program. I may likely find myself in the academics, even though I want to venture into AI on the sides. That's why I asked about their likely pay. My first concern is job security so I can relax to work on side hustle.

I've been freelancing for 9 years now, so I can say handling the greenback and quid has enlarged my mouth, but it's not a journey for the faint of heart.

Abroad for post-doc is good. Energy sector. I think there is much discussion about emerging energy technology, etc. If you can get an offer from Germany, you can take it. Germany offers more opportunities (so I heard).

Allowances? LMAO
Your ignorances stinks to high heavens.

It's even lesser than 30k monthly when all statutory deductions are made. The good thing is that no one really starts on GL 1 anymore. Most start on GL 04 which is the entry level for SSCE.

However, I agree with you about people earning far better in the private sector. The only thing the civil service offers is job security and a bit of time flexibility, aside that it is not lucrative in terms of remuneration.

Personally, I have purposed to migrate to the private sector before the end of this year. I have a PhD and currently learning cybersecurity. The civil service is waste of one's career and youthful life.
Tell me more about life post-PhD. Why are you not in academics (University)? Maybe you are...is the renumeration in the university system disappointing?

Blood money...

That is why some countries of the earth may not see peace anytime soon because some people are profiting from it.

Ever wonder why there is one 'senseless' war or the other...not organic...just outburst?

Through deception, war unleashes, then money transfers...banks take their cut, middlemen, weapon sellers, industrial war complex, vehicle companies take their cut....food aids/donation ngos take their cuts, and on and on...

All on the blood of men, children, women, and innocents...

Yet, they call us corrupt countries....yes we may be...

but theirs is more deadly because it is laced with hypocrisy.

Too much noise and expectations...people wan ruin it for us. Anyway, not happening...

I've not been in the market for a while, and that's because I need have some important things to wrap up here.

One thing I noticed about being away is that you get to see the market better. When you are into the market too much, you get sucked into the matrix of the market, and you won't be able to step back and see from a bird's-eye point of view.

Although I still get news, I recommend stepping back for anyone who wants to do well in this bull run. Coins will pump in different months...they have their days. Hence, just know what you are doing sha...research will do well in DEX than CEX, because that is where the honeypot is.

Business / First Bank Employee On The Run After Diverting ₦40 Billion by twosquare(m): 1:31pm On Jun 01
First Bank, a Nigerian bank with a market capitalisation of ₦829 billion has begun legal action to recover “huge sums of money” allegedly diverted by an employee at a head office team in Iganmu, Lagos. The employee, now on the run, allegedly diverted those funds to 98 bank accounts classified as first beneficiaries, including his wife’s.

The bank reported the incident to the Nigerian Police Force on March 25, 2024, and obtained three court orders between April 4–8, 2024 to block hundreds of bank accounts believed to have received the stolen funds.

Three people with direct knowledge of the incident told TechCabal that while the initial amount discovered to be diverted was around ₦12 billion, it now stands at around ₦40 billion ($29 million).

As a manager on the electronic products team at First Bank, the employee, identified by court documents as Tijani Muiz Adeyinka was authorised to process reversals for customers, said one First Bank employee with knowledge of the matter. It meant he controlled an account with which he processed those reversals and could credit merchant accounts.

Muiz allegedly used that authority to instead credit customer reversal requests to a merchant he controlled. As the last line of authorisation on the team, he allegedly did not need any further approvals, it allowed him to carry on diverting customer funds for almost two years without detection.

His scheme was eventually discovered when a customer made a complaint that was eventually escalated to the bank’s internal control unit. The control unit discovered several suspicious transactions and reported to the police.

“We hereby bring to your notice the discovery of fraudulent transactions into various transactions within and outside the bank and request your good offices to set up the machinery of investigation in place with a view to unravel the circumstances surrounding the said fraud and get the culprits apprehending to face the wrath of the law,” read a letter dated May 10, 2024, from First bank to the Lagos State Commissioner of Police.

First Bank did not respond to multiple calls and emails from TechCabal requesting comments.

A spokesperson for The Nigerian Police Force did not immediately respond to a request for comments. The spokesperson Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) did not respond to a request for comments.

“I discovered that one Muiz Tijani Adeyinka, a former staff of First Bank was involved in the nefarious posting of fraudulent transactions,” read a statement from the investigating Police officer in charge of the case signed March 26, 2024.

“It was discovered that he made some fraudulent transactions to his wife’s account number (name withheld) domiciled with Zenith Bank, which in turn transferred to other beneficiaries totaling thirty-four accounts which also gave birth to second beneficiaries domiciled with other banks totaling 1,190 accounts,” the statement added.

Across multiple court documents and complaints, First Bank did not state how much money was stolen. It was also silent on how the money was obtained while asking the Police to “unravel the circumstances surrounding the fraud.”

Despite a decline in reported cases in Q1 2024, fraud remains a big issue in Nigeria’s financial services industry. While fintech startups receive disproportionate scrutiny, the country’s biggest banks are often on the receiving end of fraud attacks too. In 2023, Access Bank lost ₦6.15 billion to fraud and Fidelity Bank lost ₦2.5 billion in three incidents, per a report from BusinessDay.


First Bank obtained an order on April 8 to block the bank accounts of the first and second beneficiaries of the illegally obtained funds from a Federal High Court in Lagos. The bank also obtained additional orders dated April 8 and May 5 from a Jalingo and a Lagos high court to block additional accounts believed to be involved in the incident.

One first beneficiary account reportedly used some of the stolen funds to buy the stablecoin USDT from several crypto traders, according to an anonymous email sent to TechCabal detailing their bank accounts.

Those traders claimed their only involvement was selling USDT and denied knowing the funds they received were proceeds of fraud. They have now been drawn into a legal battle with the bank with restrictions on their accounts at the time of this report.
