Abstract: Solar energy is regarded as one of the most important and promising technologies in the field of renewable energies. Turkey has been one of the first countries to adopt solar energy and harness it in the last two decades. Many Turkish companies especially holdings started to invest in North Africa, either by expanding their operations there or through opening new branches and making alliances with the other countries concerned. This paper aims to identify the best North African country for a specific Turkish company to open a solar energy branch. The process involved Fuzzy TOPSIS multi-criteria decision making where criteria for selection of one of the countries has been collected from experts, and three decision-makers have been chosen to rate the criteria in terms of each alternative countries. Fuzzy TOPSIS analysis was chosen because of the level of uncertainty in this case study. Regardless of the data available concerning each criterion for all the alternative countries, there is still a certain level of ambiguity to overcome. The results of this study suggested that Algeria would be the best choice for this Turkish company to open up a new branch. The second best-fitting country would be Egypt followed by Libya while Morocco and Tunisia had the lowest ranking.

Abstract: Crafting and executing the best cryptocurrency mining strategy is vital to succeeding in cryptocurrency market investments. This study aims to identify the best cryptocurrency mining strategy based on service providers' performance for cryptocurrency mining using a hybrid analytics approach, which integrates the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Fuzzy-TOPSIS techniques, along with sensitivity analysis. The results show that hosted mining is the overall best cryptocurrency mining strategy, followed by home mining and cloud mining, based on both total cost of operations and cryptocurrency payout criteria. The empirical findings also suggest that the critical features of the highest performing service providers (i.e., hosted mining strategies and cloud mining) were their flexibility of contracts and the superior efficiency in terms of the daily payout. Finally, of the three location alternatives for home mining, Turkey ranks first compared to the U.S. and Europe.
