If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.The best way to succeed in this world is to act on the advice you give to others.Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.
The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.
You've got to get up every morning with determination if you're going to go to bed with satisfaction or not
Tron (TRX), the highly anticipated cryptocurrency project that aims to build a decentralized internet and content entertainment system through the issuance of smart contracts and development of decentralized applications (dapps), is on fire as of late.
First off, Tron recently surpassed 2 million mainnet user accounts, which is an exponential increase in users as it took 181 days to reach their first 1 million users and only 68 days to reach their next 1 million users.
In addition to reaching the 2 million user milestone, Tron recently underwent a major hard fork which led to the Odyssey v3.5 upgrade.
Following this upgrade, we are expecting an increase in dapp development and business transaction across both the Tron (TRX) and Odyssey (OCN) ecosystems, due to the upgrade’s cross-chain interoperability between Odyssey and Tron.
Now, less than 2 weeks after Tron’s major upgrade, dapp development and usage on the Tron blockchain are exploding.
John McAfee had this to say about his upcoming 2020 presidential run on Twitter: “In spite of past refusals, I have decided to again run for POTUS in 2020. If asked again by the Libertarian party, I will run with them. If not, I will create my own party. I believe this will best serve the crypto community by providing the ultimate campaign platform for us.” To read the full story, head over to our website at thecryptograph.net!
Former vice president of payments at Starbucks, Maria Smith, promised that Starbucks would play a “pivotal role in developing practical, trusted and regulated applications for consumers” to pay for coffee with bitcoin. However, tax regulations in the United States are still blocking the way to fulfilling that promise.
At current, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) considers bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies property. For tax purposes, BTC is treated as property, which triggers capital gains every time there is a transaction regardless of the amount transacted. So all bitcoin transactions, whether it be for a luxury yacht, Lamborghini, or even a cup of Starbucks coffee, are taxed as capital assets, like stocks, bonds, and commodities. Consequently, accepting bitcoin can quickly become a recordkeeping nightmare.
And although advocacy groups like CoinCenter are pushing for an exemption from this, Starbucks isn’t waiting around for Congress. Their partnership with Bakkt, an NYSE-backed crypto exchange, is evidence of this.
Do you think the government should classify Bitcoin as an asset and not legal tender?
Did you know Kutcher is also a crypto enthusiast? 😎
The "bitcoin revolution" is here, and it offers an investing opportunity, Ashton Kutcher said the TechCrunch Disrupt conference. This was already back in 2013!!
He also stated: "I think bitcoins are obviously becoming more and more relevant. The fact that they are very hard to hack actually validates the value of the money itself" he said."
Kutcher has been active in tech investing in recent years through his venture capital firm, Sound Ventures (which is the successor of his previous firm firm A-Grade Investments). He co-founded it with business partner Guy Oseary, and the duo have invested in high-profile companies such as Uber, Airbnb, and Spotify.
Kutcher has also been increasingly interested in the cryptocurrency market. He has made investments in startups including Ripple as well as bitcoin payment service provider BitPay. He’s been a supporter of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology for quite some time. #kutcher@aplusk
