The primary difference between online casinos from their land-based counterparts is that they are brimming with bonuses that can’t be usually enjoyed in the brick and mortar setting unless they are considered VIPs. Crypto casinos can also guarantee their users that all of their transactions will not be reflected on their bank statements. This is because of the fact that crypto is decentralized and therefore not controlled by banks or any financial institutions.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones.
