22 Apr: Bitcoin Remains Resilient


“Success only comes to those who dare to attempt.”

--NO TAX ON CRYPTO PROFITS!--

Happy Friday! Hope you had a good week. Bitcoin did a quick pop and drop and believe it or not its pretty flat since last week $40,553.46 lol. Bitcoin remains resilient so R-E-L-A-X relax. Keep stacking sats, using all the options like cash back cards and soon you will be able to pay off debt the way a Canadian artist did. Governments are still grappling with how to control the impact Digital Assets bring to their country; Ukraine is trying to ban Bitcoin purchases with local currency. Other assets getting press is ADA, DCR, TRX, GMT, and NEAR.
