Dogs are renowned for their almost supernatural sense of smell and have been used for years by law enforcement to solve some of the most complicated crimes ranging from drug smuggling to cold-blooded murder. In 1997, the world was introduced to the first counterfeit-sniffing dog, named Mike, and the concept has rapidly gained popularity ever since.

Since the World’s Fair of Money has opened let me get into my annual rant: Why isn’t the show broadcast for those of us who cannot attend?

I spent a couple of hours reading and bouncing ideas off my three-year-old, always a good sounding board, and decided to write a little bit about it.

Blockchain Technology

This is the technology that Bitcoin is based on. Don’t let words like… Full article at the source>
