Crypto Strategy And Why Buy? Debt Crisis In 5 Years? (video, right), Shapeshift’s CEO Speaks, Cointelegraph

CS Commentary: Note that he admits he has been wrong about another financial crisis for 12 years. We believe that the markets are controlled by cycles. The next debt cycle is not likely to crash until after 2025. Those who believe that crypto will ‘save’ everyone rarely consider scenarios like digital/power shutdowns, either nationally, or regionally. Some Digital wallets may save net worth, but the question remains whether digital would have any worth in a ‘walking dead’ type of world.

Quotes Of The Month:

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom. But the tumult soon subsides. Time makes more converts than reason.” ― Thomas Paine, Common Sense
