    Yes, and Bernie Sanders’ response is to ‘keep open but look after those who are left behind’.

    Masons and their infamous masonic handshake and hand signs, something the sheeple will never comprehend, which is what makes them sheeple.

    2018 is the last ultimatum for North Korea regardless what Xi said or promised.
    Kim Jung Un and his posse will be exiled or killed, then South and North Korea will be untied. Mark my word for it.

      Young Tang Oh, most definitely. I think bitcoin is a great model for a standard. But, in terms of developer/enterprise usability. Definitely Ethereum. That's why I say that's governmental technology.

      Young Tang It appears you have a vested interest in the perpetuating misconceptions concerning the technology and what it means for the "current" future. My suggestion? Follow your flow.
      Stability is coming.

      Emanon Dratsab,
      By the way, Ether is much better than Bitcoin, don’t you think?

      Emanon Dratsab,
      I used to own 200 bitcoins in 2014, then as soon as Ethereum and other cryptos came out, I sold them for 300% gains. I would never touch any cryptos again, unless, the volatility stopped. Why would you use bitcoin to purchase anything knowing its value could be doubled the next day? Or why would any smart vendors; such as Walmart, Amazon, or Alibaba accept bitcoin knowing its value could become $0 next day? Though Bitcoin still got some steam ahead, I wouldn’t take any chance. I’d rather keep my cash as it is king. What good about bitcoin is you don’t pay taxes on gains, so it’s a good gambling tool for now. When the NASDAQ releases bitcoin ETF futures, I might even consider shorting it only when the movers & shakers are doing it. Go with the flow.
