    I get a lot of questions where people ask me if it is still ok to buy $ETH here.If I did not think it was still a buy, I would sell my longs.Until that day, I, personally believe, it is still a buy.Going higher IMO, much, much higher.#Ethereum #ETH4LIFE #Ultrasoundmoney

  • From NickGiambruno:

    Here are 7 reasons I am not optimistic about Ethereum’s long-term future.#1. It is not immutable and can be censored. The developers can roll back transactions and change the rules whenever they want. They can also be pressured by others – such as governments.

  • From theREALpattyxrp:

    $GALA is not going to be a F-Asset. Basically, it is going to be issued on Flare as a native token to the Flare Network. This takes place by burning the $GALA on Ethereum and then issuing it on Flare Network. I’m very excited about this and what @GoGalaGames brings to the table.
