Earlier this month, Himalayan Coin (HCN) was officially launched. As of this Friday night in the US East, the price of HCN pushed up to $40. Between that and the fact that most comrades have a preferred purchase price of 1HCN=0.1USD, that is, the price of comrades’ HCoin assets has risen 400 times in less than two weeks. As Miles Guo said, the potential of HCoin can be said to be completely untapped. However, the day Hpay is listed, it could be when HCoin goes from a mere digital currency to a link to the real economy, and its significance and value can be considered significant.

Note: The value of Hpay and its predictions are only personal opinions, and investments should be made with caution.

In an ad describing the ten fundamental rights, Binance also said that stronger regulation is inevitable in the future and emphasized that “smart regulation” would benefit the industry. “Regulating the crypto asset market is like wearing a seatbelt in a car; a more regulated market can better protect our users.”

“Regulation and innovation go hand in hand.

Beyond the well-known Bitcoin and Dogcoin, there are many areas to explore in the crypto-asset industry. Here, everyone can have access to wealth, not just the privileged few. Crypto assets belong to everyone. But we still have a lot of work to do if we want this innovative breakthrough to become part of everyday life. Regulating the crypto asset market is like buckling up in a car; a regulated market can better protect our users.

4.Holding Monetary Funds Decreased by Nearly 50 Billion, Vanke Asked to Cut Back on Food and Clothing

On the 17th, an internal document “about Vanke Group headquarters “scrimp and save” and create a “wartime atmosphere” initiative” circulated the network, the document signed by “Group headquarters.” The paper proposed changing the usual way of thinking in the golden age, running the business concept throughout, subtracting from actions and expenses that do not generate value, and spending little money to do big things. In brief, the document contains seven work requirements and eight specific actions, from travel booking, canteen meals, afternoon tea, and fruits, to the use of official cars, meeting venues, posters, and video production; Vanke guides everything to its employees. After Time Finance’s verification, Vanke insiders did not deny the document’s authenticity but only said “no response for now.”

In response to the Wenfeng share acquisition case, Xu Xiang said to the Xinjing News financial reporter, Wenfeng shares of significant shareholders suspected of interest transfer, hollowing out the interests of listed companies, firmly opposed, will vote against. On November 19, the reporter called the secretary office of Wenfeng shares; the staff said, “If Xu Xiang voted against, this shareholders’ meeting might not be carried out, the company as soon as possible to respond to the SSE inquiry letter.” Public information shows that Wenfeng shares are one of the “Xu Xiang concept stocks.” As of the end of the third quarter of 2021, Xu Xiang’s mother, Zheng Suzhen, held 275 million shares of Wenfeng, accounting for 14.88% of the total share capital of the listed company, ranking among the second-largest shareholders of the company.

8.Corn Prices Are Easy to Rise but Challenging to Fall

Recently, with the gradual improvement of the weather in the northeast, some areas are not easy to store the ground party grain to high positive shipments, production areas and the northern port collection increased, resulting in the recent corn prices stalled retracement. Every year there will be this unsuitable short-term storage of corn on the amount of time, about a week, followed by the grassroots will usher in a period of one to two months of pity selling behavior, corn will be firm up. The company’s primary goal is to provide the best possible service to its customers. Regarding railway transport, the amount of corn wagon is reduced, overlapping with the wheat stop shooting after the feed enterprises replenish the warehouse, which also caused the southern corn prices to rebound. With the recent clearing of the weather, as well as the gradual improvement of steam transport, poor grain and profit traders actively shipping, the northern port collection increased, deep processing enterprises to take advantage of the trend of price cuts, the north port prices also retraced 40-50 yuan/ton. North China wheat sowing is nearing the end after the agricultural leisure corn shyness weakened. Due to the futures appreciation of the spot, spot prices lagged after the futures price retracement is more significant, the main 2201 contract retracement of about 100 yuan/ton.

This round of corn on the volume is mainly traders profit inventory and grassroots not resistant to store the ground party grain is dominant, is expected to maintain about a week. However, the grain quality and storage conditions of farmers are expected to still pity sales, on the one hand, because the cost of growing corn by doubling land rent and increase, on the other hand, the high point of last year’s corn appeared in January, so it is inferred that the Northeast grassroots farmers later still to support the price, especially after the freeze easy to store corn is expected to at least support the cost of pity sales until around New Year’s Day, that is, the short-term volume does not represent the mainstream market trend. In terms of corn, domestic corn production increased by about 15 million tons in 2020/2021, including an increase of 18 million tons in the northeast, a decrease of 6 million tons in northern China, and a slight increase in production in other regions. The wheat inventory carryover is about 50 million tons for wheat, including 15 million tons of stale grain before 2017. As for rice, 74 million tons of brown rice in Heilongjiang and nearly 60 million tons of aged brown rice. Overall, the grain supply is sufficient, and the shortage is not expected to occur again, i.e., the corn market is challenging to break through the previous high. However, the early listing of this year, brown rice, and the wheat auction are suspended. The grassroots is bound to sell; I speculate that the policy end has bottoming price expectations. Before New Year’s Day, it is difficult to fall.
