I don’t yet own ETH but feeling the need to think about adding some. My primary vehicle remains bitcoin.A rising tide will lift all boats most likely. We’ve been waiting patiently for the breakout for some time. Who knows is if breaks out now but the clock is ticking…
- From gaborgurbacs:
Many on Wall Street who critized and ridiculed me for supporting #Bitcoin still repeat the same unbased and offensive things and still try to sabotage my work. Ignorance is deep. Importantly, Bitcoin price increased a few hundred times so I am right & don’t care about haters. ✌️

As for a news story related to Bitcoin getting some buzz:
Ecocash, which is owned by Zimbabwe’s largest mobile network operator, Econet Wireless, enjoys a lion’s share of the mobile money market. It is this monopolistic position that appears to be the source of Ecocash’s constant fights with regulators….It is this directive that forced earlier Bitcoin adopters as well as crypto traders to go underground….This knowledge might be responsible for the steady growth of Bitcoin or altcoins being demanded or swapped with USD. Before the latest suspension directive, some peer to peer traders accepted mobile money due to the ease with which it can be converted into USD….Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation is another driver of cryptocurrency adoption.
