3. JGS RANTS AND RAVES
I promise, Johnny Gwin, to no longer talk crypto with people who do not specifically ask to hear about my new fascination with this tech, currency and culture.
Some people just hate crypto - or FEAR it - or are just weird jerks
- I will not try to help NORMIES anymore without being asked
- I won't be sharing my cautionary tale of not getting in Bitcoin when I was told in 2013
- TO BE HONEST - I don't really care if you INVEST or jump in or not
- I'm entertaining myself - its like talking about my favorite band or sports team
FORGET THAT BITCOIN & BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY HAS:
- Provided a completely free market for currenciesDoing nothing and ignoring Bitcoin, you are letting individuals around the world chip away at your purchasing power by injecting faith and capital into a different, harder currency.
- EARNS YOU FREEDOM and ECONOMIC CONTROL with PRIVACY
Bitcoin is not inflationary and largely not manipulated by GREEDY NATION-STATES
- Financial Security is freedom and BTC and Crypto puts GENERATIONAL WEALTH VELOCITY IN REACH
- TRANSACTIONAL EQUALITY - Money is zero-sum and Bitcoin opened up the market for all currencies to compete at an individual level internationally.
It's not about you liking, caring about, or believing in BTC, your problem is what other people around the world believe because you are now competing with them over a fixed supply of 21 million BTC whether you want to or not.
- A peak into the future of not only financial markets, currency and investment but blockchain technology will and already is changing many many aspects of daily life.
- It's an expanding INDUSTRY that has huge opportunities for everyone
- What if you could go back in time to 1990 and tell yourself what the INTERNET and MOBILE CELL PHONES were gonna be in 2021
- THAT IS WHERE WE ARE
PASCALS WAGER = SATOSHI's WAGER
Pascal's wager - Practical argument for belief in God formulated by Blaise Pascal. ... If the Christian God does exist, the agnostic gains eternal life by believing in him and loses an infinite good by not believing.
Concept works for investing in Satoshis - the upside of having faith in Bitcoin and blockchain technology has a much bigger upside than denying it's existence and power.

5. FUN NEWS
On Friday Hofmann announced via a tweet the launch of WAGMIGOTCHI, a smart contract without a front end that allows users to care for a digital pet with various needs. If one of the needs is not met, the pet “dies” and users cannot further interact with the contract.
To an outsider, WAGMIGOTCHI’s etymology is likely as baffling as its lack of utility.
The name is a portmanteau of the acronym for “We’re All Gonna Make It,” a popular phrase in trading circles used to express bullish sentiments, and “Tamagotchi,” the faddish handheld digital pets from the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Just minutes after Hofmann released the first version of the contract, overeager caretakers accidentally killed it.
“It was played with too many times consecutively and passed away from fatigue,” said Hofmann.
The NEW “WAGMIGOTCHI has four attributes that increment every 50 blocks: boredom, uncleanliness, hunger and sleepiness,” Hofmann told CoinDesk

The Next Generation for Digital Payments
- FOUND: Tinashe Nyatanga Moonseekers Facebook Group
Proton (XPR) is a new public blockchain and smart contract platform designed for both consumer applications and peer-peer payments. Proton removes the concept of sharing private keys directly with merchants by creating a permission-less layer that exists on top of traditional card networks and banks.
The user maintains the private key in confidence while permitting institutions who wish to authenticate the user to check with trusted institutions via public keys. The verification from the trusted institution will confirm the user’s identity without revealing the user’s associated private key.
Gone are the days of entering your bank password or credit card number online; crypto and fiat wallets alike now interact as one network to streamline the process of making and receiving payments.
