There are few things that I am afraid of these days. I survived Vietnam. I survived The Gulf War, and even a severe butt whooping in front of my “buds” by an unusually large girl in my third-grade class. Yet, a few things are very concerning to me these days, and they scare me. These are …
A nuclear exchange between nations that will kill millions and permanently change or destroy the way we all live and permanently affect the eco-system.

Government control and regulation of cryptocurrency.
From since I was a child, I learned that the people are the government. But these really are just fancy catch-phrases without substance. The governments control us.

The governments and financial institutions will either jump on board with cryptocurrency with a view of regulating and controlling it, or they will attempt to put it in the grave.

As long as these world manipulators can keep “the people” divided by schemes of war, race, mistrust of one and another, they can control “the people” and regulate to their hearts desire.
This one of my concerns. That cryptocurrency is here to stay and will become the new way we all conduct financial transactions or it is a passing fad that will fade away.
