Bitcoin Smashes Heavy Resistance at $12K And Its Likely To Continue Higher

Bitcoin has attracted a lot of attention again in the last few days, and one can well ask oneself what still separates this digital currency from its position as an everyday currency? We at Annexxio don't think very much anymore and are sure that it won't be another ten years before Bitcoin will be part of everyday life. The currently still high volatility is likely to subside over time and new and interesting solutions will certainly be found for its still limited suitability as a universal means of payment in everyday life - also thanks to innovative start-up companies. The distance to the suitability for everyday use has already shortened considerably.

Swiss “disposal satellite” is set to remove debris objects from space

A spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) has been given responsibility for a EUR 100 million project by the European Space Agency, ESA. 95% of all objects in low-Earth orbit are defective and no longer controllable. They are space debris. ClearSpace SA is now in charge to come up with a Swiss “disposal satellite” to remove debris objects for the first time. Planned for 2025, the ClearSpace One mission, directed by the startup of the same name, will capture the discarded VESPA upper stage (VEga Secondary Payload Ad apter) from a rocket launched in 2013 and guide it into the Earth’s atmosphere.

Here’s everything to expect from Apple’s iPhone 12 event on Tuesday

On Tuesday, Apple will hold its second fall event of the year. Apple usually introduces new iPhones each year at a September event, but the iPhone was absent from the company’s September 15 event. That event focused squarely on the new iPad Air and Apple Watch Series 6. Now Apple is hosting an October 13 event, which is happening tomorrow, with the tag line “Hi, Speed.” The event starts at 10:30 pm IST. As usual, the invite doesn’t mention the iPhone 12 anywhere, but we bet the company will unveil new iPhones at the much-hyped event. And we already know a lot about the iPhone 12 lineup.
