The Potential of CryptoCurrency

Crypto-currency and the future of Offshore

crypto Digital currencies or what are referred to as cryptocurrencies are an alternative medium of financial exchange and has gained momentum in the last few years, promising to reshape the global economic infrastructure by revolutionizing the medium in which goods are exchanged. The possibility of cryptocurrency is enormous, and it is difficult to estimate the impact it could have as the industry is relatively still within its early stages of experimentation and development. That being said, there are a few areas to keep an eye on

  1. The Banking Industry - Bypassing the current stranglehold that centralized banks retain giving rise to Crypto Personal Investing empowering individual financial autonomy;

  2. Individual Fund Management and Exchange - Revolutionary blockchain technology and Peer-2-Peer transactions will reshape the mode of exchange giving fluidity and transparency like never before; and

  3. Fundraising and Venture Capital - The rise of Crypto Initial Coin Offerings (ICO) offers a new way to generate funds, build revenue, and offer investment incentives.

All of which will give individuals more autonomy, security and transparency in a highly decentralized and individualized transactional economy.

Be prepared with a secure Plan B

Offshore greatly enables the individual, opening up a world of different markets across various platforms that offers a reliable Plan B.

The Unequal Balance of Power in the Offshore Market

The Real Reason Western Countries are against the Offshore Market

global offshore market repoThe rise of global communication technology has virtually eliminated boundaries creating a hyper-globalized economy allowing financial flows access to markets in all corners of the world. This has enabled the spread of global transactions stimulating innovation and growth along many areas of the global economy. However, the current trend of globalization is now fast becoming authoritarian, moving away from a hands-off liberalized version, as it has become entirely self-serving, governed and manipulated by the economic elites, Multi National Corporations (MNC), and powerful state governments and institutions that have to a large degree forced their agendas and policies on the rest of the world.

Why the Offshore Industry Will Continue to Thrive

Tax Avoidance vs. Tax Evasion

Using Legal Means to Reduce Taxes

tax-avoidance If you own a business, you generally have the right to organize it in a way that ensures you pay no more taxes than necessary. This strategy, known as tax avoidance, involves using legal means to reduce taxes.

It is not the same thing as tax evasion, which is the practice of violating your country's laws and paying less than the minimum amount of taxes. Rather, tax avoidance is the practice of setting up your business in a way that ensures it will be taxed fairly by your country's government.
