“Resultantly, Vitafoam Nigeria Plc will be reclassified from the low priced stock group to the medium priced stock group with effect from September 14, 2020,” the notice sent to “dealing members” and sighted by Business Post today said.
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.
