    What is your most obvious trade right now?

    Exchange Traded Fun: Spending BTC in Tokyo
    Here is a weekend “educational“ (stupid) video on how to spend BTC in Japan (where BTC has been legal means of payment for some time now), WHY I would spend BTC vs fiat in the first place (in trivial amounts), and my general/everyday causing mischief around Tokyo.
