Bitcoin Developers Must Do What Investors Want, Long-Term or Short

There are snotty people who claim to be long-term thinkers and want me to treat their plans seriously. The problem with long-term thinkers is that there is an ambiguity between them and people who are living in a fantasy. For you cannot plan beyond your ability to survive, and no one really knows how long their current investment strategy will keep them alive. If you are planning beyond your ability to survive, then you are not a long-term thinker. You are a person in a fantasy world. Also read: Your Stupidity, Your Responsibility Long-Term Fantasy The first step to convincing me that you are a long-term thinker is to convince me that you can survive long enough for your plan to be realized.

KKT coin is the newly ventured cryptocurrency sloganizing to bring the power of money to the hands of common men, those who are oppressed, less-fortunate and lacking the resources.

8 Alternatives to Coinmarketcap

Ask anyone where they go to compare cryptocurrency valuations and straight as a flash they’ll reply “Coinmarketcap” (CMC).

A security expert says that rising cryptocurrency prices can lead to a surge in cryptojacking of people’s smart homes.

Yet there are some unforeseen events that can occur as people begin to accept and embrace something that appears initially mundane, such as smart appliances in one’s home.
