on

The new Infinix Hot 8 is available for pre-order in Kenya. This is according to an Instagram Post by the company. People pre-ordering have to pay KES. 3,000 at any of these outlets, and they stand to win a couple of things.

If you’re interested in pre-ordering, know that the official price of the phone isn’t yet known. The company has said official price will be announced on Sept 26th. But if you want to place a pre-order, you need to know the price and specs of the phone you’re ordering. So I’ve called a couple of the shops where you can pre-order the phone and this is the information they’ve shared

  • Model – 3GB RAM, 32GB Storage
  • Price – KES. 12,000

If this info should change, I will update the article. But all in all, we can expect the Hot 8 to officially go on sale from Sept 26th.

Twitter has mandated that its employees to work from home until further notice, in order to help slow the spread of Covid-19. Twitter had already “strongly encouraged” employees to do so in an announcement early last week, but is now making the directive mandatory across the world.

The social media giant will continue to pay contractors, hourly workers, and vendors for standard working hours if they’re unable to perform their duties at home. The company will also be providing reimbursement for home office setup expenses, as well as for parents who may have to pay additional daycare costs.

Tech companies including Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google have issued similar guidance to employees in various regions, but Twitter’s order to its entire 4,900-strong global workforce is one of the strongest yet amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have become popular and valuable in the last decade and have become an alternate mode of payment. However, governments are still weary about their use and we see this coming up from time to time.

In Uganda, the government is warning citizens from using cryptocurrencies. According to the Independent, Finance Minister, Matia Kasaija issued a strong warning to Ugandans who are investing in cryptocurrencies where he said the government does not recognize them.

Apparently he told reporters that the government will not be held responsible in case anyone loses money to organizations selling cryptocurrencies. The minister said as the Central Bank, they don’t believe cryptocurrencies meet all the characteristics of genuine currency.

Mr Kasaija said that these currencies are exposed to risks that includes fraud and they are not backed by any assets, which makes it a high risk venture.

“Let me state clearly that the online cryptocurrency businesses are not regulated at the moment and therefore carry a significant risk of loss of savings, with no recourse to protection or insurance by the government,” Bank of Uganda’s Deputy Governor, Dr Louis Kasekende said.

Bitcoin in particular became quite famous and its value skyrocketed to a high of $19,000 per Bitcoin in December 2017. This wild rush in value got people interested in the cryptocurrency market.
