**What Are Gas Fees?** To drive a car, you require fuel. To execute a smart contract on a blockchain protocol, you need to pay a fee known as Gas. In technical terms, Gas refers to the unit of measure on the amount of computational effort required to execute an operation or a smart contract. Wallets like MetaMask enable users to interact directly with the blockchain protocol, choosing which amount of gas they wish to pay. There are several websites where you can track gas prices. The system works on a standard supply and demand mechanism. The price of gas can fluctuate from time to time depending on the network demand. If there are more people interacting on the blockchain executing smart contract operations, due to the limited amount of computing resources on the network, Gas price can increase. Conversely when the network is underutilized, the market price of gas would decrease. **Why Are Gas Prices So Expensive?** Gas fees can be set manually, and in a situation where the network is congested due to high utilization, transactions with the highest gas fee associated with it will be prioritized for validation. Validated transactions will be finalized and added to the blockchain. If gas fees paid are too low, the transactions will be queued up which can take a while to complete. Therefore, transactions with lower-than-average gas fees can take much longer to complete compelling users to pay more to have their transactions processed quickly and efficiently. In many instances, gas fees can be outrageous. Rising gas fees demonstrate the need for blockchain networks to be scalable to process more transactions and at a lower cost.

For the moment, China Evergrande debt contagion fears, inflation, Fed tapering, rising commodity prices are having no effect on global stock markets with the CBOE Volatility index (VIX) settling around its lowest levels in about 2-months. As for yesterday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average touched an all-time fresh intraday high while the S&P 500 flirted with its all-time intraday record highs (rising a 6th straight day) after strong earnings results and forecasts from healthcare companies and as banks advanced amid rising Treasury yields. The 10-Year Treasury yield spiked to 1.6730% early, a fresh five-month high sending the S&P 500 Bank Index higher for a fifth-straight day, for its fourth-straight record close. Technology underperformed as the Nasdaq Composite closed slightly lower as inflation fears crept into the market late day following comments from Federal Reserve President Quarles. In Asian markets overnight, The Nikkei Index fell -546 points (1.87%) to settle at 28,708, the Shanghai Index inched higher 7-points to 3,594 and the Hang Seng Index declined -118 points to 26,017.

By Aaron Sheldrick TOKYO (Reuters) -Oil prices rose on Tuesday, recouping earlier losses, as falling temperatures in China, the world's biggest energy consumer, revived concerns about its ability to meet heating demand needs amid power and coal shortages. Brent crude rose 24 cents, or 0.3%, to $84.57 a barrel by 0541 GMT after falling 0.6% on Monday. The contract is still up nearly 7% this month. U.S. West Texas Intermediate futures gained 35 cents, or 0.4%, to $82.79 a barrel, having risen 0.2% in the previous session and nearly 10% this month. Brent fell on Monday after China released growth figures that disappointed the market but with temperatures falling as the northern hemisphere winter approaches and heating demand increasing, prices of oil, coal and natural gas are likely to remain elevated, traders and analysts said. Colder weather has already started to grip China, with the temperature forecast to fall to near freezing in northern areas, according to AccuWeather.com. "Tightness in energy markets meant supply side issues remain prevalent and commodities prices remain supported," said an energy derivatives trader based in Singapore. Coal futures in China rose as much as 7.8% on Tuesday, while riskier assets like equities were also higher. The rising coal and natural gas prices in Asia are expected to cause some end-users to switch to lower-cost oil as an alternative. [MKTS/GLOB] However, the power crunch that is sending prices higher is also hurting Chinese economic growth, which fell to the lowest in a year, according to official data on Monday. China's daily crude oil processing rate also fell again last month to the lowest level since May last year. Helping keep a lid on prices, U.S. oil output is set to rise. Production in the largest shale formation in the U.S., the world's biggest oil producer, is expected to gain further next month, according to an official report.

Monday, October 18, 2021 U.S. equity futures are looking lower after posting strong gains last week, with oil prices extending their near-term rally into a ninth consecutive week, as concerns over surging inflation pressures and the weakest China growth rate in more than a year tamed optimism linked to a strong start to the third quarter earnings season. Chinese Q3 GDP missed, rising +0.2% q/q vs 0.5% consensus, and was +4.9% y/y vs 5.2% consensus amid a rolling power crisis, supply chain disruptions and a crackdown on the tech sector. In the U.S., the earnings flood begins this week with 72 names in the S&P 500 expected to report quarterly results this week.

In Europe, the German DAX is lower by -0.6% or nearly 100-points to drop below 15,500, while the FTSE 100 dips -0.3% to hold above the 7,200 level. U.S. stocks look to build on last week’s gains where large-cap tech names propelled the advance Friday, with shares of Amazon.com (AMZN) and Tesla (TSLA) each rising more than 3% on no specific news, while the SmallCap Russell 2000 underperformed, falling -0.35% as investors bailed on value stocks for growth stocks. Strong quarterly earnings from Dow component Goldman Sachs (GS) also boosted financials as investors prepare for a flood of reports next week. Shares of cryptocurrency and blockchain-related firms gained last week as bitcoin topped $60,000 for the first time since April, with expectations growing that U.S. regulators would allow a futures-based ETF.

By Huw Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Stocks advanced on Friday as strong earnings kicked off a new results season on Wall Street and fears that inflation will trigger earlier-than-expected interest rate rises eased for now. The MSCI All World Share Index was up 0.31%. U.S. stock futures were about 0.4% higher, with investors waiting for the latest U.S. retail sales figures, and inflation expectations from the University of Michigan. Earnings from Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) were expected to be in line with strong results on Thursday from several of its U.S. peers which propelled shares higher. "The overall mood is buy the bid, there is no alternative to equities. We have come out with this enthusiasm about earnings coming back and optimism coming through," said Kit Juckes, global fixed income strategist at SocGen. In Europe, the STOXX index of 600 European shares was up 0.3%, hitting a three-week high. Britain's FTSE 100 gained 0.2%, with the UK blue-chip index recovering all ground lost since the coronavirus pandemic began in March last year, but analysts warned over complacency in markets. "Markets have been trying to make up their mind on whether inflation is transitory, are supply chain disruptions are going to translate into higher costs," said Mike Hewson, chief markets analyst at CMC Markets. "But this week's earnings from various companies are assuaging some of those concerns that companies won't be able to pass on some of these cost rises to consumers, and that's why we are seeing the increase in risk," Hewson said. The return of optimism will be tested by next week's anticipated weaker growth data from China and the impact of strengthening oil prices on consumers going into the winter months, Hewson said. European car registrations slumped by more than a quarter in September, and Toyota Motor (NYSE:TM) Corp said it would cut global output in November as chip shortages and supply chain problems continued to dog the sector. Investors were also trying to figure out where bonds go next. "With no strong case for either direction and many investors likely to be sitting on a dismal performance as major fixed income indices are in the red year-to-date, yield volatility is likely to remain elevated in the coming months," UniCredit told clients in a note. " onerror="this.style.display='none'" class="msg-img" /> BRENT AND BITCOIN Oil prices were at multi-year highs, a drag on growth in energy-importing markets in north Asia, but good news for some energy-exporting markets in Southeast Asia. U.S. crude gained 0.9% to $82.05 a barrel, back near Monday's seven-year high of $82.18. Brent crude rose 1% to $84.91 per barrel, around its three-year high hit on Monday. [O/R] Bitcoin hit a six-month high of $60,000 on Friday, approaching the record hit in April, as traders became increasingly confident U.S. regulators would approve the launch of an exchange-traded fund based on its futures contracts. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan gained 1.2%, and was set for a 1.7% weekly gain, which would be its best weekly performance since early September, while Japan's Nikkei surged 1.81%, led by tech stocks. Analysts largely attributed the gains in Asia to the U.S. rally. Chinese shares rose more cautiously than elsewhere with blue chips up 0.38% ahead of next week's growth figures. "We expect GDP growth to slow to 4.6% year-on-year in the third quarter from 5.6% previously, in view of persistent weakness in consumption and services amid repeated COVID outbreaks, and the fading of the low year-earlier base," said Barclays (LON:BARC) analysts in a note. In currency markets, the dollar rose again to a near three- year high versus the yen with one dollar buying 114.32 yen, the most since late 2018. The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of currencies, was marginally lower on the day, at 93.89 and set for its first weekly decline versus major peers since the start of last month, having lost a little ground to sterling and the euro. The yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes was 1.5388%, slightly higher on the day, after trending downwards this week from Tuesday's four-month high of 1.631%.

By Chen Aizhu, Jessica Jaganathan and Scott DiSavino SINGAPORE/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Major Chinese energy companies are in advanced talks with U.S. exporters to secure long-term liquefied natural gas (LNG)supplies, as soaring gas prices and domestic power shortages heighten concerns about the country's fuel security, several sources said. At least five Chinese firms, including state major Sinopec (NYSE:SHI) Corp and China National Offshore Oil Company (CNOOC (NYSE:CEO)) and local government-backed energy distributors like Zhejiang Energy, are in discussions with U.S. exporters, mainly Cheniere Energy (NYSE:LNG) and Venture Global, the sources told Reuters. The discussions could lead to deals worth tens of billions of dollars that would mark a surge in China's LNG imports from the United States. At the height of Sino-U.S. trade war in 2019, gas trade briefly came to a standstill. Talks with U.S. suppliers began early this year but speeded up in recent months amid one of the biggest power-generating, heating fuel crunch in decades. Natural gas prices in Asia have jumped more than fivefold this year, sparking fears of power shortages in the winter. "Companies faced a supply gap (for winter) and surging prices. Talks really picked up since August when spot prices touched $15/mmbtu", said a Beijing-based senior industry source briefed on the talks. Another Beijing-based source said: "After experiencing the recent massive market volatility, some buyers were regretting that they didn't sign enough long-term supplies." Sources expected fresh deals to be announced over the coming few months, after privately controlled ENN Natural Gas Co,, headed by the ex-LNG chief of China's largest buyer, CNOOC, announced a 13-year deal with Cheniere on Monday. It was the first major U.S.-China LNG deal since 2018. The new purchases will also cement China's position as the world's top LNG buyer, taking over from Japan this year. "As state-owned enterprises, companies are all under pressure to keep security of supply and the recent price trend has deeply changed the image of long-term supplies in the mind of leadership," said the first Beijing-based trader. "People may have taken the spot (market) as the key in the past, but are now realizing that long-term cargoes are the backbone." CHEAPER U.S. GAS The sources declined to be named as the negotiations are private. Sinopec declined comment. CNOOC and Zhejiang Energy did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Venture Global declined comment. Cheniere did not immediately respond to a request for comment. "We expect more deals to be signed before year-end. It's primarily driven by the global energy crunch and prices we're seeing now... U.S. supplies now stand out as attractive," said a third Beijing source briefed on the talks. U.S. cargoes used to be expensive versus oil-linked supplies from Qatar and Australia for example, but are cheaper now. A deal at $2.50 + 115% of Henry Hub futures, similar to ENN's deal according to traders, would be roughly about $9-$10 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) on a delivered basis into Northeast Asia. This includes an average shipping cost of $2 per mmBtu for the U.S.-China route. Jason Feer, global head of business intelligence with consultancy Poten & Partners said Chinese companies are heavily exposed to Brent-related pricing for LNG and the U.S. purchases give some diversity to the pricing. Asian spot gas prices are now at a near record at over $30 per mmBtu. Long-term LNG deals linked to oil prices work out to about $10-11 per mmBtu, though both calculations vary according to liquefaction costs, premiums and assumption of forward oil and gas prices. Chinese buyers are scouting for both near-term shipments to cover demand this winter and long-term imports as demand for gas, seen by Beijing a key bridge fuel before reaching its 2060 carbon-neutral goal, is set for steady growth through 2035. It's hard to estimate a total volume of the deals being discussed, sources said, but Sinopec alone could be eyeing 4 million tonnes annually as the company is most exposed to the spot market versus domestic rivals PetroChina and CNOOC, said a third source. Traders said Sinopec is in final talks with 3 to 4 companies to buy 1 million tonnes a year for 10 years, starting from 2023, and is looking for U.S. volumes as part of the requirement. Delays in LNG export projects in Canada, in which PetroChina owns a stake, and Mozambique, where both PetroChina and CNOOC have invested, also made U.S. supplies attractive, sources added. North American LNG exporters have been adding to capacity because of demand in major Asian economies. Cheniere, the largest exporter out of the United States, said in late September it expects to announce "a number of other transactions" that will support their going forward with the Corpus Stage 3 expansion next year. Venture Global is building or developing over 50 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of LNG production capacity in Louisiana, including the 10-MTPA Calcasieu, which is expected to cost around $4.5 billion and start producing LNG in test mode in late 2021. However, some buyers remained cautious. "There is a lot of hype in the market and nobody knows for sure how long this supply crunch would last. For companies that do not have fresh demand in the next year or two, it's better to wait," said a separate Chinese importer.

By Florence Tan SINGAPORE (Reuters) -Oil prices edged down on Wednesday on concerns that oil demand growth will fall as major economies suffer through inflation and supply chain issues though surging prices for power generation fuel such as coal and natural gas limited losses. Brent crude futures fell 5 cents, or 0.1%, to $83.37 a barrel at 0622 GMT, extending a 23-cent loss on Tuesday. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures fell 6 cents to $80.58 a barrel after gaining 12 cents on Tuesday. Both contracts pared losses after falling as much as 70 cents earlier when China, the world's biggest crude importer, released data showing September imports fell 15% from a year earlier. However, China, along with Europe and India, remains mired in coal and natural gas shortages that have pushed up prices for electricity generation fuels. "The data is backward looking, but China's energy shortages are very real in real-time," Jeffrey Halley, a senior analyst at brokerage OANDA said. "It will take a material fall in natural gas and coal prices to cap oil prices." China's thermal coal prices surged to record highs on Wednesday as recent floods in key coal-producing province Shanxi worsened a supply crunch, just as new efforts by Beijing to liberalise power prices boosted demand from power generators. "China is likely to buy more (crude oil) in the coming months as it seeks to resolve its energy crisis in any way possible and diesel may provide some relief on that," said Howie Lee, an economist at Singapore's OCBC bank. Still, the International Monetary Fund on Tuesday cut its growth outlook for the United States and other major economies on worries supply chain disruptions and cost pressures are holding back a global economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. A strong U.S. dollar, trading near a one-year high, also weighed on oil prices, as it makes oil more expensive for those holding other currencies. However, oil watchers are still focused on whether soaring gas and coal prices will lead to more demand for oil products for power generation. "There are growing expectations that the high prices for gas and thermal coal are likely to boost demand for alternative fuels such as diesel and fuel oil," ANZ Research analysts said in a note. The market is also awaiting U.S. oil inventory data, delayed by a day following the Columbus Day holiday on Monday. Analysts polled by Reuters estimate U.S. crude inventories rose by 100,000 barrels in the week to Oct. 8, which would mark a third straight week of increases. They also estimated that gasoline stockpiles rose about 100,000 barrels, while distillate inventories, which include diesel, heating oil and jet fuel, dropped by about 1 million barrels. Data from the American Petroleum Institute, an industry group, is due at 4:30 p.m. EDT (2030 GMT) on Wednesday and from the U.S. Energy Information Administration on Thursday.

**The ownership economy** In the early days of blockchain technology, “everybody” got involved and participated in the success of chains like Bitcoin and Ethereum, laying the foundation for Web 3.0, the decentralized Internet. This same economic model is how NIM crossing the chasm from developers to creators by helping creators and collectors realize they can own a piece of the internet value they created. I am NOT on a social mission for inclusion, as valuable as that is in its own right — is necessary to disrupt the centralized Web 2.0 platforms where there’s high switching cost? (Not to mention the outage that Facebook had this week, something that would NEVER happen with the decentralized architecture of NIM) The ownership economy is a far better business model than LLC, reviving the concept of co-ops and making it sustainable. What I do love is that it does mean that community ownership and network alignment enables NIM to transfer royalties in the same way we distribute music — instantly, to anyone, anywhere in the world. **The ownership economy sustains a world in where those who create the value also captures the value.**

“While oil is currently cheap relative to other assets, this is not the case with other forms of energy such as LNG, coal, natural gas, electricity and uranium, which are all at or near all-time highs,” Kolanovic went on to write, adding that in the bank’s view, “the evolution of coal prices might reflect supply, demand, cost of capital and energy transitioning issues for all fossil fuels, and it would certainly be possible that oil prices will follow the same pattern.” If that’s the case, it would imply oil prices rising into the $150-200/bbl range. “The risk,” Marko concluded, “is that coal is a proverbial ‘canary in a coal mine’ for the much more important commodity.”

@everyone U.S. equity futures extend yesterday’s rally amid apparent progress on the debt-ceiling impasse in Washington, while in Europe, natural gas prices and power fell after Russia offered to ease Europe’s energy crisis as U.S. stocks are looking at a stronger open. Yesterday, the S&P 500 erased a -1.3% loss in its biggest reversal since February to settle modestly higher as investors grew more optimistic that congressional Democrats and Republicans could reach a deal to avert a government debt default with October 18th, the date Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has estimated the government will run out of money and not be able to service its existing debts, if the ceiling remains in place. China markets and U.S. listed Chinese stocks (BABA, BIDU, JD) are rising as President Biden and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping agreed to hold a virtual summit by the end of the year. Late yesterday, top U.S. Senate Republican Mitch McConnell said his party would support an extension of the federal debt ceiling into December. The offer could provide an off-ramp to a months-long standoff between President Joe Biden’s Democrats and McConnell’s Republicans, who had been expected on Wednesday to block a third attempt by Senate Democrats to raise the $28.4 trillion debt ceiling. In Asian markets, The Nikkei Index rose 149 points to 27,678, the Shanghai Index remained closed for its Golden Week holiday, and the Hang Seng Index surged 735 points, or over 3% to settle at 24,701. The picture remains bright in Europe as well with the German DAX up 175 points to 15,150 and the FTSE 100 rising 67 points or nearly 1% to 7,060.

Still, he called attempts to divert all blame from green policies “far-fetched.” The impact of green policies “can be explained in one sentence,” Marko said. Here’s that one sentence: Given that a goal of the ESG/green initiative is to divert capital from fossil fuels development, affected companies will not have sufficient capital to provide needed supply, or will require significantly higher profits to clear the (higher) cost of capital hurdle.
