The NASD Over-the-Counter (OTC) Securities Exchange rose by 1.15 percent on Friday, July 3, giving investors a reason to smile going into the weekend.

The blockchain brings new financing options to the business market. For example, Bitcoin Cash casino has adapted to only using cryptocurrency. This way, it makes it easier for their customers to deposit and withdraw in a BCH casino. Entrepreneurs have taken note of this and are looking to invest more in crypto than in fiat markets.
