11 Apr: Buying Continues - Price Drops

“We must never be afraid to go too far, for success lies just beyond.”
-Marcel Proust


I am back! Bitcoin 2022 was EPIC and I strongly recommend everyone spend time watching many of the videos on Bitcoin Magazine's YouTube Channel. There were so many good one's I can't list them all but will post the 3 day full streams from the main stage below. There were other stages with great content so pour through as much as you can. Also listen to The Decrypt Daily podcast hosted by Matthew Diemer on if it was worth it or not. Bitcoin 2023 is already on sale and I highly recommend getting your ticket now.

Even though Luna and Saylor continues to buy Bitcoin the price doesn't reflect their momentum and some are calling for lower while others are calling for higher; end of the day - Keep Stacking Sats. The same applies to Ethereum, appears that there is mix sentiment on what will happen in the short term; we all believe longer term up is the forecast.
