Alts down 15% - no worries, have a banana, coconut & cacao smoothie πŸ˜‰

in cryptocurrency β€’Β  3 months ago

A continued downtrend was confirmed yesterday, but for how long no one can say. In this film I talk about the advantages of Tether after showing you my favourite simple & warming superfood smoothie.

The Smoothie

It takes only a few minutes to prepare and is particularly great for cold mornings. It providing a coffee-like kick start to the day due to the theobromine in raw cacao which has a similar effect to caffeine without any of the come-down associated with coffee.

My ingredients:

  • x5 bananas
  • creamed coconut
  • organic cacao (powdered)
  • warm water

Mix all the items together and drink while it's warm.

Why am I not fussed about the market going down 15%?

In one word: Tether

I follow a lot of the BTC related articles on Trading View and everyone seemed to agree the price still has further to drop before that long awaited turn in the tide, many of whom cited $7400 as a critical point.

Consequently I was watching when we hit this price and low and behold BTC dropped hard from this level, taking the alts with it.

I have every intention of buying back the coins I sold when the price is lower, therefore increasing the total amount I am holding.

great & impressive


Thanks ;)

5 bananas, be careful, they are radioactive.


What???? Come on. Not really?


it's the potassium
I thought you would have been all over that one ;) It's true. In fact one way they measure radiation doses is in bananas! "banana equevelent doses" or BEDs


Before I learned anything (useful) about food bananas were always there. I have loved them forever. Instinctively. And find it very hard to believe that this fruit can do us damage, assuming one isn't eating hundreds a day. I used to follow a YouTube channel called "30 bananas a day" because that's what they thought we needed and the people who ran the channel were super fit athletes. And I just checked now... they are still there doing their thing with a smile. Though I don't see the "30 bananas a day" logo any more!

Here is one of them now:

A quick google of "banana radiation" tells me this:

No one ever developed radiation sickness from eating bananas. Yes, bananas are radioactive, but so are you. Yes, you will certainly die from radiation poisoning if you are able to eat 10,000,000 bananas at once. You may also witness chronic symptoms if you eat 274 bananas a day for seven years.

Thanks for the info though! I had forgotten this about bananas!


it's mostly because they are such a great source of potassium, a certain percentage of the potassium atoms are radioactive isotopes. We are exposed to many different low level radiation sources, it all about dosage over time.
