Is The Rivalry of CryptoCurrency Reminiscent of An Earlier Time In American History?

This morning, we’re traveling back to some of the revolutionary changes that have made us who we are today. When you think about any advancement within a culture, the first thing that comes to mind is how change comes about.

How did the change come about, and what was the outcome of the change? The earliest implementation of change in our history would be somewhere around Colonial times. Around these times, cultivation outlined what people would eat and where certain things would be grown. This event would spearhead the locality of settlements. Would people build near the water, or would they set up more inland?

So years after the settlements were up and running, someone found oil. That oil would give birth to fuel, railroads, and autos. According to The American Oil and Gas Historical Society, the first well was set up in Titusville, Pennsylvania, around the latter part of the 1800s. If you look on a map, you will notice that Titusville isn’t far from the water. It was settled in the latter part of the 1700s. If you recall, Jamestown was settled around the beginning of the 1600s.

Looking at things from a historical stance, these advancements happen almost every century. They often help to bring the country into another century. However, with these advancements, problems seem to follow. In the past, the resulting conflicts ranged from slavery, racist treatment against Japanese migrants, and also attacks on farmers. These attacks happened almost always against the poor.

So, it is to no surprise that we see conflicts in the markets due to crypto wars. The attitudes to protect self-interest have not shifted that much. Over the past month, we have seen attack after attack launched at Dogecoin. It should come as no surprise when you look back at the warring between railroad companies and the banks.

For years the banks have always been the guardian of finance to some degree. Here comes a new currency that somewhat pushes regular banking aside, and people freak out. Cryptocurrency is still new when you think about an all-out operating system. We are probably overdue when it comes to an updated currency change, in my opinion. Germany and other countries in nearby locations updated their currency to the Euro. I remember moving to Germany some years after the upgrade, and I felt like a child learning to count again! It was uncomfortable, but I got it down. Getting the driver’s license over that way was another story; it took me two tries!!

So, here we are smack dab in the middle of the currency shift, and we are witnessing costly arguments over cryptocurrency. People are tanking rival currencies while others are yelling for the SEC to step in. I fear that the continual arguments will bring the entire house down. There shouldn’t be this level of hostility regarding which currency goes up or down. In the matter of Dogecoin, public figures were calling out for shortages. A lot of people lost money due to manipulation tactics dealt by people from rival coins.

Sadly, Doge didn’t threaten these coins. However, these people went out of their way to short the coin, which eventually caused eyes to turn in their direction. If we cannot change how we deal with competition, we risk growing as a nation. Once again, we see similar behavior that played out centuries ago with the railroads and banks. They often used bully tactics to get people to sell and move in order to gain their stance. Perhaps it is not too late to learn from history and open our arms to a new way of living without causing pain. We do not have to attack people’s assets in order to protect our own gain.

As always, I am not a financial advisor, speak to one if you wish to learn about investing.

The Expanse In Real Life Powered By DogeCoin

Today we are living in a Sci-fi lover’s dream come true. We have current exploration ongoing on Mars and trips to the moon via private companies. Mars has always been a point of interest for humans due to its chemical make-up and distance from Earth. It is nicknamed the Red Planet because of the iron oxide chemicals. The biggest difference between Earth and Mars would be the absence of water and the fact that Mars is half the size of Earth.

The fact that Mars has no water on its surface raises a concern regarding future colonization. How will early settlers get water, and what will the dusty atmosphere do to their health? If we think about water and its role in creating vegetation, it becomes a vehicle of sustainability. For example, take the Mojave desert and its lack of vegetation. After being stationed there for three years with my husband, I came back with chronic sinus problems.

A lot of the people stationed there had sinus problems. Our second daughter, who was born there, developed skin issues. I recall a nurse once stating that it was common for children born in that region, but I have not been able to find any research to back it up. I can tell you that before living in the desert, I had never suffered a sinus problem. So, this makes me wonder about the health risk associated with living in a dusty atmosphere.

Another drawback of living in a desert environment was the cases of depression. Depressions were very frequent in the Mojave due to the lack of color. The majority of the colors were brown and gloomy. Our base had your run-of-the-mill landscaping, but outside of base was nothing but a desert wasteland.

If any colony hopes to exist on Mars, it will have to create a green oasis out of the desert environment. As of today, there are plans for colonization, but they will not come into play until Mars has been properly examined for human existence or Martian existence. This means the probes will have to check for weather, physical dangers, psychological dangers, settlement obstacles, and vegetation readiness. After all of these things get the green light, then comes the obstacle of currency.

Trade will more than likely the way to go in the beginning because many of these trips will be one way only. This is how crypto currency presents an open door towards financing. Take a coin like Dogecoin which has the ability to be used worldwide and has the ability to be recreated at a larger rate. Just as it can be utilized from country to country, it could also be used from planet to planet. As long as Dogecoin remains affordable, not like Bitcoin, it can create the backing of a new foundation.

So, this is a science geek’s dream come true. I think back to my very first science project which was the solar system. I can still remember the excitement of creating the planets and explaining the difference between Saturn and Jupiter. Needless to say, when shows like Star Trek came on TV, I was right in front, taking in every little detail. We are slowly getting to see how things will start. I am posting some websites with information about Mars colonization below. The Expanse will be real in a couple of decades.
