CleanSpark Is A Failed Business Roll-Up In A Vicious Court Battle With Its Largest Shareholder – $3 Price Target (NASDAQ:CLSK)

CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK) claims to provide software as a service, physical controllers, and consultation services to renewable energy infrastructure. This allows the company to have a diverse range of tools and abilities to help a client create a suitable microgrid platform. However, the reality is CLSK’s microgrid business has not gained any traction, and we doubt it ever will.

CLSK was a former OTC traded stock and got uplisted to the Nasdaq on 1/24/20. CLSK has been trading between $2-$3 from early March until early July, which is a fraction of its current price, which closed at $10.40 on 10/7/20. We believe the reason for the rapid rise in share price is due to news flow with buzz words that attract retail investors, primarily regarding microgrids and electric vehicle batteries and charging stations, sectors that have become hot this quarter.

However, its business hasn’t generated significant revenues and its losses

French arrest 29 in cryptocurrency scheme to finance jihadis

PARIS (AP) — French police arrested 29 people around the country on Tuesday in a vast operation to break a complex scheme financing Islamist extremists in Syria through the use of cryptocurrencies.

A statement from the anti-terrorism prosecutor’s office said search warrants are out for the two main figures in the scheme, French jihadis who have likely been in northwest Syria since 2013 and are suspected of creating “the architecture of this network of terrorism financing.”

They were identified only as Mesut S. and Walid F., both 25 years old, and suspected of being members of Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham, affiliated with al-Qaida. They were both convicted in France in 2016 and sentenced in absentia to 10-year prison terms.

The 29 people detained for questioning Tuesday are aged 22 to 66. Most of them are suspected of injecting funds into the network. Two of them are thought to have had

LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s departure from the European Union may have cut business in the London commercial insurance market by 14% last year, the International Underwriting Association said on Wednesday.

Gross premium income for the so-called London company market – commercial insurance excluding Lloyd’s of London – totalled 27.6 billion pounds last year, the IUA said in a report.

Without Brexit the figure is likely to have been in excess of 32 billion pounds because about 4.5 billion pounds of premiums previously recorded in London were recorded in Europe, the IUA said.

Britain left the EU at the end of January and UK-based insurers have been moving business to new or expanded hubs in the bloc because
