Very few would have predicted the meteoric rise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies toward the end of 2017 - fewer still may have predicted the dip that occurred shortly after.

How can you find the next crypto to go 'to the moon'. Recently, finder.com.au enlisted nine panellists to help predict just where twelve of the biggest cryptocurrencies may head in 2018 and, interestingly, Dogecoin is predicted to be one of the biggest movers.

There's no denying the gender pay gap. It's there: The average pay for a man, the average pay for a woman, and space between. The gap exists regardless of whether or not you believe it exists. Wage gap deniers don't deny the gap itself; they deny its significance. Women stay at home with children, so the numbers make sense, they say. Women don't negotiate, so of course there's a gap.

Just over a week ago, the Reserve Bank of Australia released the all new $50 note. The $50 is the most highly circulated bank note in this country as it's used to fill ATMs. And highly circulated notes have traditionally been attractive to counterfeiters as they can pass fakes more easily as there are so many notes, at different stages of wear in circulation.

This is in large part because single people are generally shouldering their living expenses alone, rather than splitting them with a partner, which obviously reduces their disposable income at holiday-time. But, as Purcell points out, it's also due to differing expectations for singles than for partnered people.

Today marks Equal Pay Day, when based non the disparity in pay between men and women, the latter are effectively working from free from now until the end of the year. It's an emotional topic, but what does science have to say about the whole issue?

A common argument for why the gender pay gap exists is that women tend to work in lower-paid occupations. But new in-depth research has found even when contributions to their employers are the same, women are still paid only 84 cents for every $1 men receive.

Why? Well, it's sexism, they say.

The first thing I did on my 18th birthday was go play a few hands of blackjack, and I've been playing ever since. I'm no high roller, but I know my way around a casino. If you're not sure where to begin, let me help.
