Interesting how the media have changed the narrative: the bubble will pop, to, goverments will embrace crypto, we all love crypto...

Suddenly the PM of india is tweeting that "new technology should be embraced", and the price from 6m, is slowly moving up to 12k.

Thanks Michael, love your channel!

The Pineapple Fund was started by a bitcoin millionaire who has given over 80 million to different charities. Including 5 million to a medical charity (Open Medicine Foundation) carrying out research into a neurological disease, that I suffer from, called Myalgic Encephyalitis. It affects over 17 million globally and 2 million Americans. It is a good news story about bitcoin that we should all promote.

Thank you sir for your useful information.

Your goal for your crypto news channel is a good one and it will certainly make your fine show even better!

That is certain, all this talk about a bubble has disappeared and people have started buying in again. Cryptocurrency is still in its infancy stage and has a lot more in store for 2018 and even more in the coming years.

Nice news feed. Thanks!
