25 Mar: Top Israeli Bank Goes Crypto


"And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings."
-Meister Eckhart

--NO TAX ON CRYPTO PROFITS!--

BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT (BLUF)

As the Crypto Market goes higher and higher, remember what goes up must come down and at some point it will have a pull back so store up the dry powder and do not FOMO! As the top Israeli bank decides to accept Bitcoin and Ethereum, more will follow. The future will be bank allowing you to buy, sell, and custody digital assets right within their own apps. Russia is looking to accept Bitcoin for oil but Mayalysia says, we are not making it legal tender.

With the good comes the bad, as Justice depart takes down two NFT scammers and former party organizer indicted for laundering $2.7M in Bitcoin and Cash. Happy Friday peeps!
