    Public reminder that Quant Network $QNT’s market cap is only $185 million dollars.Dogecoin is currently at over a BILLION dollars.A meme coin is priced more then a global interoperable liquid operating system.When QNT reaches just Litecoin’s mktcap (lol) it’s $600 each.

  • From alexjohnward:

    $Nano can be a cruel mistress, once you know her, you can’t go back to legacy money. I hate using old money now. Ignorance is bliss sometimes, I remember thinking Visa was fast, that Litecoin was cheap.Avoid $nano if you want to stay blissfully unaware of your own potential.

  • From musikbagus:

    Now people are worried that Google and Apple will remove crypto apps. That’s why for daily transactions people should not only depend on apps on centralized mobile OS. Consider using hardware wallets or cards such as #litecoin @terniotoken and @PundiXLabs #XPASS #XPOS.
