  1. I'd say taking into account that a couple thousand years of darwinism would create a specialization on a genetic level of a population in relation to their environment. So the inuit over so many generations would have specialised. Similar as you said about the aborigines.

  2. Bitcoin is up more than 2% and it recovered to $8,700 resistance area against the US Dollar and might continue this rally and it could extend to over $11,000 so now for bitcoin enthusiast now’s still a perfect time to actually buy on the cheap, accumulate and increase your position (DCA) or better day trading under the supervised guidance of an expert with a proven success record. I trade under the guidance of Nathan Trueman and with his accurate trade signals being copied in my trades, I have amassed 15 BTC in my portfolio from my initial 2 BTC in just 3 months. Mr. Trueman is truly an exceptional trader and expert’s traders like him should provide mediums like these for the ever-growing population of less-experienced traders and he can be reached through WhatsApp (+44 7723984457) or Telegram (nathantrueman) for inquiries into his services.

  3. Despite my low experience in trading and some bad past experiences in trading which was very ugly and bad on me, I am still pleased and love the tech and possibilities featured by blockchain. Trading can be disastrous, catastrophic and dangerous but also at the same time, it’s great, easy and profiting with a perfect and efficient strategy and also a better option to just holding alone. My aim, which is to have accumulated and hold at least 20 BTC before the highs. I can say categorically that I’m on the highway to achieving that thanks to the system of trade patterns of Coinshield limited. I have been accumulating and increasing my portfolio and also taking out a certain amount of profit using his system. And I believe this is the easiest and cheapest way to increase your holding without having to do dollar-cost averaging (buying more coins). Twitter: Coinshieldltd

  4. Both LN and Liquid are completely centralized shit. C. Decker himself recently wrote LN can't scale BTC and Liquid master keys are held by bankers. Comical.

  5. After Bitcoin rallied above 10,600, those investors who jumped ship ended up on the winning side. The price of the leading cryptocurrency took an elevator down to 8,800, plunging 14% in only one week along with global equities. However, Glassnode calculated that only a relatively small amount of investors took profits compared to previous market peaks in June 2019 and, of course, Dec 2017. As reported by UToday, another major sign that this Bitcoin bull run is only getting started is no change in the number of exchange deposits. Hence, investors do not feel like it's the right time to cash out and prefer to adopt a wait-and-see approach with the next halving taking place in less than ten weeks. I've channeled my trading system with Mr. Knud Green he's very efficient and steady making margins with daily signals, I encounter 6btc with my initial hodling in 5weeks interval, you can become a better trader also reach him on telgram (@Knudgreen) and (Knudgreen01@gmailcomn) for more info on how to trade better this period.

  6. MimbleWimble based crypto projects will be very important in a future. Stuff like that should be in bitcoin protocol by default. Sadly it is not. But maybe in future.

  7. It's true once you learn what and how bitcoin works you don't need to learn more about it but you need to constantly be looking for new and better token that might displace it.

    Secondly why would anyone want to pay for anything with bitcoin? Don't you risk losing out on the massive growth in the future? spend your bitcoin at 10k value and it goes to 100k and you feel super bad. Am I missing something?

  8. I really love all your content but please dont invite Maximalist clowns in here who are screaming for $1 ETH because they are delusional and full of hatred. These biased clowns are not welcome within the crypto space

  9. So maybe I failed to hear the bullish case for btc. All upgrades talked about sounded centralised and heading into next bull run will be useful because transactions going to slow down again.
    Then wait 18 month meme for actual upgrades coming to reduce transaction sizes…..
    Used to like Jimmy, knowledgeable for sure, but stuck in his bubble.

  10. Are you really giving a spotlight to this toxic brainded maxi? He wished every altcoin holder to lose money..

    Not unsubscribing just because your content is quality, but this made you lose points.

  11. In what way is grin a scam? It does what it is advertised to do. That's not a scam. These maximalists reveal their insecurities when they call everything a scam.

    These new btc developments are exciting. The $#!+ talking is really unfortunate, though.

  12. Jimmy Song is a complete moron… nice hat clown! If you listen to these guys, then you don't know anything about bitcoin… Hey jimmy, how does spv, and merkle trees work in bitcoin??? Lmao.

  13. I appreciate the content nugget, very informative. Don’t worry too much about people arguing about this or that and their opinions in the comments. Keep up the good work ?

  14. At 12.00 Jimmy mention End to end encrypted messaging You guys should check out as a privacy platform & privacycoin UltraNote is super exciting as it already has end to end Blockchain encrypted messaging with IPFS encrypted File transfer. You have TorNetwork implemented, Staking & Privacy Browsing.

  15. Wow!! Jimmy is educated!! The knowledge he is retaining is impressive!!
    Gotta love super minds!!!
    Well handled Alex, this was intense.

  16. BSV is Bitcoin do not get scammed by buying any other coin – Satoshi Nakomota is Craig S Wright chief scientist at NChain follow Coingeek for all the relevant upto date information for what is happening with BSV Bitcoin. Anything else is a scam !

  17. Bitcoin is following an equilibrium on the monthly. From the lower high that we had at 14k to the higher low at 6400k. Then another lower high at 10500k and now we are waiting for the 4-hour trend to change to confirm a higher low on the weekly. I expect a break of this equilibrium within the next two months.

  18. I like to think about how we're talking about all this fancy schmancy new technology but there will come a day where we will look back and smirk at how basic this all is compared to what we will have then.

  19. Meat agriculture is destroying the planet. Period. It is not possible for 7+ billion people to live on high animal product diets without destroying it even faster. There are vegan diets that are perfectly natural, whole and healthy (that don't involve eating garbage like white carbs and sugar that people should not eat). Shifting to vegan diets is key to preventing a global ecological collapse. Going the opposite direction is ecological insanity.
