Money continues to magically appear and it's all going to work out fine, right? Right?
The Bitcoin halving is less than a month away. While important, it shouldn't be taken out of context - the halving won't in itself 'pump your bags'. Nonetheless, crypto looks increasingly placed to pick up the pieces of a crumbling hyper-inflated fiat system and thankfully so. Patience, tenacity, and research are required to benefit from this possible transition. Above all - it's not going to be linear, easy or free from failure. Choose wisely and stay the course.
