    Cryptocurrency Update

    Reading Time: 3 Minutes “Hahahahaha…” Turns around. Oh hello! Glad to see you here, welcome welcome. Gestures to a warm, comfortable seat. Please, sit down. That’s better right – can I get you anything? Drink? Water? No? Fair enough. Forgive me, because you caught me in the middle of reading through some of my older posts.

    Reading Time: 4 Minutes What’s up everyone! Hope we are all having a good week. Much better for yours truly, thanks for asking.

So of course, as expected the conversation was free-flowing and top notch (just like the meat yum, yum). Actually, I…
