If real vision wants to be the best. They need to stop connecting to FB MESSENGER.

I’m 80% done with my profile.   I just need to connect a messenger app.   @Ash Bennington    —- so I’m trying to connect telegram!   

cant.  I didnt. Delete my entire Facebook or IG accounts entirely.   They exist in the cloud.  I did delete all their apps on my phone.  I don’t remember the passwords and the cookies have all been deleted. 

we need to grow up and move on from WEB 2.0 to the new era.   I believe in the younger generations to innovate on etherium and blockchain.  Build apps. Do what Tim Berners-Lee intended for the internet.  

I’m an early adopter.  Have you ever been early?   Sometimes the returns are 3000+% 


sometimes the returns are zero.    There’s no negative unless you’re leveraged.  We’re fiscally responsible.   I don’t need a Facebook to rule my life. 

I have telegram.   

anywey.  I wanted to talk about millenials.   And the need for us right now to stop feeling intimidated by boomers and gen x billionaires.   

it’s time for us to put innovate and make capital work for us.  Build strong alliances and reshape the future. 
love and peace. 


Am I early, wrong, or just backing the wrong horse?
I strongly believe crypto will reshape retail. Counterfeiting is a major issue for all legitimate retailers and I think blockchain can help. In the future, I see a point where a producer can give a product a simple chain, that then could be linked to a shipping chain, then wholesaler or vendor links their chain etc. Throughout the whole process there is visibility of that products history. However, I don’t think one chain would solve the issue. It would be too unwieldy. That is why I’m really interested in Polkadot. If I understand this right, and to put it simply, it’s a system to link chains, so the chains can remain independent, but linked. The developers are credible (Ethereum) and well backed (Dan Morehead), but this really is outside my wheelhouse, so whilst it looks good and fits my way of thinking, are there better solutions? Would love to know other peoples views.
I have completely ignored crypto until now. Can I get recommendations for basic crypto literature? I dont even understand what a token is. What is the most trusted exchange to use for BC? Thanks Raoul, for your rabid drooling endorsement of the space!
One observation I can make as an outsider is that until cryptocurrencies become as easy to understand and use for the average person as a credit card, they will remain a niche product catering to a very small segment of the population, no matter how great the benefits.
