24 Mar: $DOGE at Bank of America ATMs


"To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often."
-Winston Churchill

--NO TAX ON CRYPTO PROFITS!--

BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT (BLUF)

News today is meh. The most exciting is the price as Bitcoin battles $43K and Ethereum leaps above $3K; is the bull run resuming? Cardano, Looping, and APECOIN are popping off - while $DOGE is added to Bank of America's ATM; not kidding. The analyst's are talking more about $ETH, $LUNA, and $SOL.

US Senate appears to be worried about little old El Salvador because they are pushing a bill to examine their experiment with Bitcoin. SEC and Ripple continue to battle it out and the Fed Chair is singing Dua Lipa New Rules. Australia launch their CBDC and Honduras has decided to follow suit; BIS wants in too. If I've said it once, I'll say it again - every nation will have a CBDC.
