    What are your thoughts on the Mayer Multiple?
  3. Have you bought any bitcoin ?

    Actually, it is up from when he suggested people get into it. To be accurate, it's still 1.4x the price that it was at it's lowest low in February.
  4. Have you bought any bitcoin ?

    I do have one question though. With mining becoming more and more expensive, if Bitcoin sticks with the Proof of Work concept, are we ultimately heading to a centralised mining farm!? Which then poses the question: Wen 51% attack?
  5. Have you bought any bitcoin ?

    Bitcoin will become a store of value, rather than a transactional coin as it doesn't appear that it's scalability issues will ever be completely resolved. It is apparently 60 times rarer than gold, and is harder to mine, but only has a fraction of gold's current market cap. For the first time in history, this is an asset that no one can take away from you (provided you have it in a cold wallet). I picked up some ICX a few weeks ago (before the crash), and it is now severely undervalued, when you take into account that it already has working contracts with quite a few South Korean institutions. I'm well tempted to dollar cost average...
  6. UK Buy to Let Mortgage Solution

    Their £75k salary criteria still stands, as I couldn't get a mortgage with them in Jan/Feb, as being on a single salary here, it was below 75k.

    Still in a correction, apparently the bots' algorithms have a planned bottom of about USD 3k, whether that's likely remains to be seen. However, it appears a more realistic bottom is 6300, then back up to 8400, before one final dive to the low 6000. That's probably where I'll be getting in at, if I can convince myself to do so. On another note, blockchain technology is fascinating, and its application to the global economy appears to be a serious threat to the middle man, ie banks. Read into that what you may.
  8. How is PTE score calculated?

    Thanks mate!
  9. How is PTE score calculated?

    Hi guys, Is it the overall score in PTE which is used for points purposes, or do you have to score a minimum in each category to achieve the desired proficiency level? Thanks, DN

    Search for the trans-tasman mutual agreement on this forum, and you'll find an avenue.
  11. Have you bought any bitcoin ?

    Looks like it's currently on a downtrend, with the last price rise just a correction.
  12. Should it be in jail?

    Probably not much left after that fine!
  13. Skilled visa 189 help

    Lol. Defo mate. There's a really good thread about IELTS vs PTE, might be worth having a read. By all means consult a MARA approved agent initially to discuss your case, and if there are complexities such as medical issues, criminal histories etc, then the agents will be your best bet to get through this unscathed. However, if your case is straightforward, then there is nothing stopping you from applying yourself. You could always re-enlist the services of an agent later on if you reach a roadblock. I would do the language test first, in order to get the 20 points in the bag (around £160ish). Once that's definite, then I would proceed with the skills assessment (anywhere between £600-4000). Good luck and keep us posted.

    Is it 55 points without the language test? If so, then the ball is in your court to maximise your language test points. Ideally 20 points should catapult you to the frontish of the EOI invites queue.
  15. 457/TSS and APHRA - order of application

    Don't waste your time asking AHPRA for an extension of the 3 months. I did, with my reason being I couldn't leave my heavily pregnant wife by herself and fly to Aus just for the ID check, and I got a flat no, and the National Law spiel. Ended up paying £1500 for a week in Australia. Not to mention the loss of income from not working that week as I was freelance.
