I’m sure many of us are biting our nails as we await a ruling on the SEC v. Ripple case. If you are anything like me, your nights are no longer used for sleeping. I am a nervous wreck! Hopefully, Ripple wins the case, and XRP picks up where it left off before getting delisted. I do not want to make speculations about the price because, in crypto, you never know.

I have learned to hope for the best and mentally prepare for reality! In crypto, it’s best not to get your hopes up because when a token misses the target, it causes people to freak out. After ETH merged, some people thought it would help to bring the price back up. It was holding around $1500.00 until the SEC stated that ETH falls under US jurisdiction.

Some of your ETH investors said nasty things about XRP, and now it looks like the SEC has its eyes locked on them. It is now public knowledge that the prior head of the SEC worked with firms that had direct dealings with ETH. We do not know what kind of relationship he had with ETH, but we know he was warned against contact with a firm due to his position and their involvement with ETH.

This is why we must have regulation. I sound like a broken record, but I will keep saying it. There can be no safety in crypto without regulation. Think about society and how laws work to hold certain practices in place. If we want crypto to become a contender in finance, there have to be regulations put in place. The lack of regulation gives birth to more fraudulent activity. It would be too easy for white-collar crime to ruin the crypto space.

I don’t want to see ETH go down the same path as XRP because the results would be horrible. However, I want to make sure we have a clear understanding of what happened, so we can prevent it from happening in the future.

As always, not financial advice. Now I can go to sleep.

Top Crypto Movements Of The Week!

So, if Blackrock and Coinbase came together to have a baby, could we call it Bitcoin? That’s right! We are officially seeing a giant leader in financials embrace crypto. See link below! https://www.cnbc.com/2022/08/04/coinbase-shares-jump-after-partnering-with-blackrock-to-give-clients-access-to-crypto-.html

I warned you guys for a while now that mainstream will be the top indicator of crypto acceptance. There are a few tokens right now that have me going bonkers! As in, I am trying to do extra to buy extra tokens like VeChain! A girl needs to have all her ducks in place! Smile!

My top tokens at the moment are VET, UFOgaming, XRP, and of course, I still have my Mcontent, Kishimoto, and Shiryo. Many people have shied away from crypto because of the bear market, but top companies like Blackrock and a few others are going full speed ahead. Honestly, I do not see crypto going away. I see upcoming regulations which will make it harder for some to buy into certain projects.

As for those investors like myself, we live to fight another day. However, seeing Blackrock and Coinbase come together for Bitcoin makes us smile a little more confident. We cannot control many things in life, but we can control what we believe in, and that’s the key to making life manageable. Tokens like XRP, Mcontent, and a few more will change the world as we know it.

As for the updated news on the XRP frontlines, we are still waiting for the SEC to cough up those emails. Ripple is not playing with the SEC primarily because they know the outcome of this case will either grant more power to the SEC or put crypto in the hands of another enity altogether. It is perhaps the most important case for cryptocurrency and the definition of security in the crypto world. The funny thing is that XRP has continued to take root and gain momentum worldwide. America is the only country that claimed XRP was a security. This is both interesting and very troubling for the road ahead.

So as always, I am not a financial advisor! Have a great weekend, and drink coco for me!!

Converting Vacant Rooms Into Gyms!

So, if you follow my blog, you know I’m always looking for ways to improve myself. When I am not investing, researching, or spending time with my family, I’m trying to figure out how to be pain-free. Last year I purchased a treadmill and stored it in my bedroom. I soon figured out that it was taking up too much space. It was hard to maneuver, which complicated the process of working out.

I knew I wanted to work out, but I didn’t want to injure myself by moving the treadmill from place to place. So, I told my husband that I wanted to move the treadmill downstairs and create a home gym. We purchased a TV, center stand, and exercise bike to accompany the treadmill. My family, like many other families, added extra pounds during COVID.

A lot of people are looking at expensive treadmills and bikes right now. Some of the bikes and treadmills on the market today could set you back thousands. I decided to keep it simple! I purchased my bike, a Weslo Pursuit R 4.1 Recumbent bike, from Walmarts. It was under $200 bucks! My treadmill is a ProForm Cadence LT Treadmill from Acadamy, and it was under $450. We went simple with the TV and the stand! The stand was less than $100 bucks, and the TV was around $200!

For the price people pay for one piece of equipment, I was able to convert my own home gym. If you are looking to buy your own equipment, there are a few things you need to consider. You need to check out the weight limit! Some treadmills and bikes aren’t safe for people over a certain weight limit. You also need to know if your equipment will be hard on prior injuries. There are some bikes that aren’t good for people with back injuries, or knee injuries.

My recumbent bike has been great on my knees! I’m able to bang out miles without pain. However, that isn’t the same outcome for some people. Make sure you talk to a doctor before you decide to undergo any new exercise routine. I just wanted to give you an update before I hit the shower. Don’t give up on your weight goals, and remember life is what you make it.

Mcontent’s Ethereum Bridge

 Tomorrow is the upcoming Ethereum bridge for Mcontent. It will open the door for larger exchanges to list and help to promote the token. With the new addiction taking place tomorrow, investors should keep a close eye on the Mcontent official Twitter page for more details.

Within the last three weeks, Mcontent has been able to pass popular tokens like Shinja and Babydoge in price. This is more than likely due to the number of institutional investors that are entering into the token’s atmosphere. Mcontent will be the first token to offer a Watch2Earn feature which will be approaching Web3 territory.

One of the things that have helped to gain Mcontent a solid pathway to success is its ability to rise above token wars. While the token is silently rising to the top, it isn’t trying to brand itself as a meme token killer. If anything, Mcontent will be a disrupter of the modern-day giants in the production field. This makes Mcontent a token that will alter the way people see movies, pay for movies and spread content across the globe.

Think back to the beginning of Netflix/ Redbox and what those sites meant for stores like Blockbuster and Hollywood videos. They changed the way we got movies and the way we were able to pay for them. Those movies created by streaming companies like Netflix changed the industry as we knew it. They were soon getting nominated for Golden Globes and Oscars. Mcontent will do the same thing for financing content which will open a wide range of production jobs. Do you remember what your thoughts were when you first learned about Netflix?

The Mcontent token is so much more than a token. It is a new business model that can morph into its own global entity. We already see businesses starting to see how they too can implement blockchain into their platforms. With the Ethereum bridge dropping tomorrow we will see a smart contract that is able to bring Mcontent to numerous exchanges. Does that mean that we will see millionaires created within the next twenty-four hours? More than likely not! We will have to get more listings before we see the movement that can potentially reach the stars!

So be ready and realistic about what happens within the next 24 hours. Tomorrow will be a beneficial day for the token because the door will open, and the rewriting of history will begin. As always, I am just a mom with a love for crypto! I am not a financial advisor! Research any token you want to invest in.
