Crypto Strategy And Why Buy? Debt Crisis In 5 Years? (video, above 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.

Gavin Newsom has destroyed and continues to destroy tens of thousands of small businesses and untold numbers of livelihoods.” — Dennis Prager, The Lockdown Has Gone From A Mistake To A Crime, Townhall
