  1. Why do you feel it's headed towards 20K as the most likely possibility? Many of the popular followers on Twitter are now talking as if the recent consolidation in coins is healthy and we're on track for 100K+
  2. I'm going to re-watch this again, but this seems pretty amazing. If anyone is able to further breakdown, happy to learn more about the Lightning Network, etc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_MfXIRQIwc
  3. They did make an offer. It's respectable, but I think she can get a little more if she asks.
  4. Hello, I am trying to assist a friend who interviewed and was just offered a promotion with her company. The offer is not bad, probably at about the mid-way point (or close), but I know from past experience that if she asks for a more, she will likely get it. I want to make sure I'm providing her good verbiage in her response and any advice for how much she should ask for. I am 100% certain the company will not put up a fight as long as she is reasonable so want to make sure I encourage her to be confident and push for a bit more cash considering that she has earned it and you only get one shot at this. Any advice as too how she should communicate her desire for a higher starting salary than has been offered? Thank you!

  6. https://twitter.com/briantylercohen/status/1425528973744738305?s=21 This guy is not happy with unvaccinated people because his wife is losing her hospital bed. He is challenging unvaccinated people to not go to the hospital when they are sick if they aren't going to get the vaccine in the first place. Thoughts on this mindset?
  7. Thanks. I assume you can't download via any other podcasting apps?
  8. Get Busy Living or Get Busy Dying I don't have time to bleed.
  9. What is the cost for a subscription to his show? He is 5 days a week for how long? Worth it?
  10. Maybe a dumb question, but who are the developers? What is the difference between the developers and others that may be gaining an exception? Any good articles on this so I can learn more, but interested in learning more about the legislation and the terminology behind this.
  11. A few questions: There are some amendments in the infrastructure bill that could negatively impact bitcoin. Is that accurate, and, if so, why is bitcoin having this surge to about 43K? This feels counter-intuitive to me. Also, hearing a lot of noise that Ether will be in some trouble in the near future. It's near 2900 right now and continues to rise. What is the current temperature on Ether?
  12. Great explanation! What is an example of stablecoin that is in circulation? Also, what would you say are the best uses cases of BTC, ETH and ADA?
  13. Another question: I haver sold some long-term shares of a stock a few times this year. I was under the impression that I am taxed at 15% on these, but am still learning tax implications. Are there both state and federal taxes? Does income matter when taxed on capital gains? I am trying to understand if there is a strict 15% hit on long-term capital gains regardless of state/income or if there is a calculation involved. Thank you!
  14. Question - I was looking at a IRA Roth with some crypto exposure, but not an expert on tax law and not sure I understand if I am eligible. From the looks of the below, I am not, but wanted to get any advice from the below notes. From a personal standpoint, I do make more than $125K per year, but is there any 'taxable income' that would allow me to squeeze into this option and, if so, how would I confirm? Assuming I am not eligible for this, do I have any other options to consider? I currently do individual investing, 401K, some crypto and a rainy day fund. ** https://www.irs.gov/retirement-plans/plan-participant-employee/retirement-topics-ira-contribution-limits @choicebyKT: e there eligibility requirements & contribution limits? - You have to have 'earned income' to be eligible - If you're single, you have to make less than $125k annually - Most people are only eligible to contribute $6,000 per year (DYOR) https://www.irs.gov/retirement-plans/plan-participant-employee/retirement-topics-ira-contribution-limits
  15. Can you explain the difference between alt coins and stablecoins? Where does bitcoin and ether fall?
  16. Anyone with any interest in this SPAC? XPDI (currently trading at 9.95) Looking at this one a bit closer, but if anyone knows of any others in this area....all ears.
  17. Question: I was previously vaccinated with a Johnson & Johnson shot in May. The effectiveness against the Delta variant is in question and I would like to get a "booster' shot from either Moderna or Pfizer. To my knowledge, the CDC has not yet recommended this. Is anyone else in this boat and would local pharmacies refuse this? I would prefer to just explain the situation, but don't want to go back and forth. Also, should I expect to be down with the flu when I get a booster shot after having a Johnson & Johnson shot?

  19. A few questions on travel. I am anticipating traveling more (for personal reasons) over the rest of the year. I just booked a trip with Southwest Airlines and opened an account for their Rapid Rewards. The way I understand it, it works similar to having a credit card with points and I can build points up and eventually use them for a flight. I paid for this trip using my Capital One Venture card which has 2x points for travel on all purchases (I believe it also has some stores that provide more points). It gets good reviews on The Points Guy website and others. Does using Rapid Rewards and my Capital One card allow me to 'double up' on both ends like it seems? I know it will take awhile to eventually redeem these, but think this makes sense but wanted to check with others. Any other cards you like, or that is better for travel?
  20. What about Humpty Dumpty? I think he's an expert on Fox News.
  21. Maybe a dumb question, but I'll ask. I have made $5,000 on a stock. When, or does it, make sense to re-invest that $5,000 profit (minus the capital gain taxes) into more stocks? Is there any actual benefit to just keeping the profits on the stock investment in the account without either taking profits or re-investing? Also, what is your general strategy for profits on stocks?
  22. Considering a weekend trip to Nashville and know next to nothing, have never been there. If I'm there for 3 days/nights, where do you recommend I stay? What bars/sights/food do you recommend I try? I would like to stay near the downtown area, if that's the place that has bars and fun like that. Anyways looking for suggestions/cost and recommendations. Thank you!
  23. Most of what I keep reading regarding BTC is this correction is just transferring coins from weak hands to strong hands, people comparing charts to 2013 and 2017 (where the corrections look almost identical to now followed by big upticks), people holding their bitcoin longer, etc. While the mood (FUD) is still negative and there have been two or three large corrections in the last few days/weeks, most that I reading are still expecting this to lift off once this consolidation period has finished. I don't know what to think because it's scary that Elon Musk can move the price up or down by 10% and it derails all of the supposed positive/bullish metrics. Anyone else bearish or bullish on BTC for the upcoming months?
  24. It's been on quite a run. It was down to around 1900-2000 (I think) when that flash sale dropped bitcoin from 62 to 52 about 2 weeks ago. I haven't looked much, but what the current projections for Ether this year?
  25. My director is already (and has been) #####ing about people not being in the office. He loves the white-boarding, hall way conversations. I don't really disagree, but the pandemic should have inspired confidence that my team / organization can do their jobs remotely with little downside. Saying that, it's sort of ironic that my boss wants the office to return, etc. as the company, including my organization, continue to hire only in India as associates in the US leave.
