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.

Dogecoin And History

There have been many ideas and rumors floating around about the current cryptocurrency Dogecoin. Talk to anyone, and you will find a vast assortment of opinions that surround the popular currency. Your financial people hate it, while the people love it. So, who’s right?

Let’s say for an argument, most cryptocurrency has no place in the world today. We could say that the only real options for cryptocurrency should remain Bitcoin and Ethereum . Well, what does that say about wealth? Every decade or, so there seems to be a shift in advancement and wealth.

If you look at your history books, we see the financial prosperity started with colonization through farming which introduced slavery into the United States around the 1600s. Soon after that, we saw oil and gold. All of this is happening around the same era, which is around the beginning of the railroad. These advancements produced many of the wealthy families we have learned about throughout the years.

In the 1900’s we would see the advancement of communication. I don’t know if any of you are old enough to remember a time when telephone lines were shared by people living in a neighborhood. It was called a party line, and I hated it. It was good for eavesdropping but horrible for keeping conversations private. HEHEHEHE (I felt both sides of the coin!)

Phone bills were something of a nightmare story for my house due to high long-distance bills. Soon cellphones would come and take over the residential phone platform, and landlines would be a thing of the past. Companies that used to deal in selling long-distance cards would soon turn to cellphones which all seemed to have deals that made long-distance calling a little easier. All of these advancements were making someone money.

The common theme is that everything at some point gets an upgrade. You might not like it, but it happens. For those crying about cryptocurrency, stop! I would wager that it is here to stay and that it is just getting started. It looks like we are in another shift when it comes to technology and modernization.

We have all known that things are going to get a little more techie, but instead of fighting the journey, we should welcome it. I am not a financial advisor. I love history! In my opinion, we are taking place in another historical change that will impact the way we manage our financial institutions in the future. Cheer up!

Update! Weight,Stocks, And FISHING Oh MY!!!

Let me start by saying I am doing better. I went fishing over the weekend and had a blast. I didn’t catch anything, but it was fun. Being physical again feels so good. I forgot about my knee because it didn’t bother me. I have added in a routine that involves being more active. For a while, before I started working out and eating better, my activity was crap.

I would blog here and there, then jump on a PC game. I have always been an advocate of gaming, but my body cannot handle the stress it places on it. I still do things here and there, but mostly that time has been replaced with physical actions. I started back painting a few days ago. So, we are talking about regaining my former self! It feels good.

This morning I am up trying to line up my stocks of the week. I am not someone who can give financial advice, but I do tend to look at patterns. I found a stock called GNUS that I am currently in love with. If you want to know more, you will have to look it up! I am still hoping we will hear something about the legalization of marijuana soon for the entire country.

We are so modernized I do not understand why we haven’t made this a thing yet. There are so many good things that would come from the legalization, and legalization would bring an economic boom. With all of the money issues we are gaining, you would think they would be seriously thinking about how to make this thing happen. I think I have invested in five to ten marijuana companies with the hopes of at least one taking off! I guess that is my guilty pleasure in the morning. I jump on the computer and check my stocks.

As for my plans for the rest of the day, I plan to work out and warm my four-hour-old coffee. Oh, and before I forget!! I got a Ninja foodi cooker. It allows us to cook food on a healthier level and I love it!

So that’s the skinny!

Side Note– I am back in a size 8 panties and I do not feel any pain on the side of my legs! Winky Face! I am sorry if it is cringe, but it is a small battle that I have won. Each small battle is enough to make me watch to keep pushing. Have a great week.

My Bedroom Is My Workout Space.

I don’t know if this is a good thing or bad thing, but it helps to be constantly reminded that I am on a mission.

I turned my bedroom into a multipurpose room. I have a section for our bed and then we have the exercising and sitting area.

I have l learned that I have an unhealthy relationship with food. So far, I have altered the times that I eat. I have also started watching the calories of my favorite foods. I think I am eating around 2000 calories or less.

Each day I have managed to increase my time on the treadmill. I started out with an effort score of 50 and now I am over 125. It isn’t where I need to be, but each day is an improvement.

On a sidenote, today my husband is cooking my favorite meal and I can’t eat it. Smelling the onions and seeing the beef makes me super uneasy. I have never feared food, but I am dreading the completion of dinner.

Anyway, this is my mobile check-in.
