You might have heard or seen the option to place OCO orders on Binance. This is called “One Cancels the Other” Orders. They are pretty helpful for you to have a limit sell and also a stop-loss order.

Trading is buying and selling of a stock or an asset. For every asset or stock you sell, there should be a buyer and vice versa.

However, if you sell at market price, you might gain or loss depending on how the wind is at that moment. Hence Limit orders are advised.

So, to add to this, Binance added a new kind of order called OCO — They call it “One Cancels the Other” order.

Soon movies and production studios will be launching NFTs for their fans.

Few friends reached out asking what’s NFT and a very high-level idea on what it can be used for.

NFT is a collectible — like an autographed poster of a famous movie — the difference being the ownership being easily verifiable.

You have to buy it with Ethereum — sometimes there won’t be any price for NFT — but we need to pay a gas fee which is $60–100+ now to acquire it.

NFT means it’s a unique piece of art stored in your wallet if you mint it or someone transfers it.

The same can be used on applications…

Uniswap is a decentralized exchange. That means you can buy directly using your Metamask or other Ethereum wallet. You would need Ethereum or USDT to start with on your wallet. We will explain with Metamask wallet

For any decentralized swap that you have to do, you would need Ethereum to perform this transaction. If you are already a Metamask user and have Ethereum/USDT in your wallet — you can skip step 1 and 2.


This article will walk you through the concepts you would need to know to step into the world of widely used ReactJS.

If you are here, you must be already a web developer with an understanding of javascript. You could be using just plain vanilla Javascript or could be a developer using libraries and frameworks already.

Let’s jump in and refresh some concepts to understand what React has in for us.

Library vs Framework

Libraries are primarily to help you get things done in an efficient way. jQuery was there to avoid complicated code and made it easy to do common functionalities like selecting items on the web page, creating elements, and appending them to either body or another element on the page.

As a…


As my friends discuss some up and coming opportunities in the technology space, something came up this afternoon about a new law that’s been approved by 75% of voters in Massachusetts, called “right-to-repair”. I’ve done some reading and got some interesting thoughts for the near future.

Do we know all about our car/bike/truck?

We all own automobiles, but we aren’t sure if we own the data generated by it. You have the vehicle, but if you take that to a local mechanic and if they can’t read the health of that vehicle — they cannot help you troubleshoot it or fix if something’s wrong.

This can be done by storing data in the obscure proprietary format, limiting the ability to read the data, not following a global open protocol to read it, etc., …


Twitter has been around for 10+ years and not many people understand the right way to use it or use it for improving engagement and building a community —This is essential for many, especially for bootstrapped entrepreneurs hustling their way. Here I discuss some interesting points from my observation and practice in the recent past.

Steps to increase your engagement on Twitter and build a community!

I know, it sounds counter-intuitive to not follow anyone and still create engagement. But, believe me — unfollow everyone — so, your feed is clean.

I used to wonder why would someone create a twitter list — it makes sense if someone creates for alumni or a staff — so they can keep in touch or follow that feed. but, this is where the hidden power of utilizing twitter for engaging with like-minded people lies. Lists are a very underrated feature on twitter I would say.

Create a list of people you would otherwise follow — but make sure to…


Claim your coins on Reddit and entering the world of Ethereum.

I saw that Reddit is offering some cryptocurrency like tokens for the members of Cryptocurrency and Fortnite subreddits.

These are based on Ethereum blockchain and are envisioned for a much superior goal — freeing people from the current state of the internet.

If you are like me looking for a place to jump onto this and collect/purchase/earn your moons or bricks, then head to reddit.com/vault.

Detailed instructions on how to create a vault are provided here

While we do not know the complete plan of Reddit founder in achieving it, but here’s the narrative provided on the way of vault…


I’ve been sharing about my startup since a year now and some understood it and some don’t as it’s not an Instagram or Snapchat that caters everyone. Given its niche, I think it needs an explanation and I am happy to do it for my friends.

To start with, it’s not “what does your startup do?” but it should be “what problem does your startup solve?”

If you are following me on Twitter or been friends with me in the real world or Facebook, I’ve been talking, working, thinking, tweeting, sharing a lot about my startup BearTax and what it can do for people. But, a common question I get from my friends is what actually do we do at BearTax and how does it matter?

It’s been an awesome one year working on this and will be very glad to share the journey in another…


Exchanges like Coinbase provide transaction history to every customer, but only customers meeting certain mandated thresholds will also receive an IRS Form 1099-K. But what can we do with it and how to use it in filing taxes?

Introduction

You would have received a 1099-K from Coinbase Pro. All it really says is how much money you had IN from everywhere. It doesn’t display any info on how much you made/lost with each trade.

Coinbase’s 1099K form is a kind of consolidated information describing the volume of your trades (Exchanges like Coinbase provide transaction history to every customer, but only customers meeting certain mandated thresholds will also receive an IRS Form 1099-K.).

Even though you could have just traded with $10K — it will have all the buys and sells and the final number looks daunting. This won’t be…


Whether you want to build the next decentralized e-sports platform or write a simple smart contract or write a crowd sale contract to raise funds through ICO — you can do these using Ethereum Platform.

As we all know Ethereum is a platform for building decentralized apps which run on a fuel called Ether(gas). Also, a minimal complete entity you can write on Ethereum is a smart-contract — which basically provides you with few functions and you get to do a transaction.

To start with developing either smart-contracts or DApps — we need to have a development environment.

Solidity is…
