Today’s bit o trivia: Yasuke. In 1579 a Jesuit priest brought to Japan a 6’2″ black man from Africa. The Japanese people had NEVER seen a black person up to that point.

Side note: Debeers has a monopoly on diamonds and has the ability to flood the market with diamonds making them almost worthless.
So it is with crypto. Someone will pay money for the coin. Even if they cannot touch it, they will pay for it. Because they believe they can then take that coin and offer it to Elon Musk for a Tesla. I’m just saying
That’s it for today. Take care of yourselves. Check in on each other and remember just because diarrhea runs in your jeans does not make it hereditary! HAHAHAHAHHAHA…that’s funny!
