Bitcoin’s price is a landmine. A $3.5 billion purchase triggered an explosion of $30,000. Imagine what a $10 billion purchase from Apple would unleash. Imagine the chain reaction from a $100 billion purchase by the Bank of Japan in a new quantitative easing program.

Hello Preparedwombat!
I used to know you back on the old Steemit platform, but I have since dropped off in my participation in any of these sites. I've recently started exploring again and see that you are active on the Hive site. I've tried searching for a page that will show me links for "tools" (like how and to whom I might delegate some HP to and such), but the search just seems to get stuck in churn and I can't get any results. There doesn't seem to be topic pages either like Steemit used to have, so... Do you have any advice or sources?

I do delegations from peakd.com’s wallet page. There’s a “Delegate” button as well as a little magnifying glass icon that leads you to a page showing which accounts you already delegate to or receive delegations from. The “to whom” question is personal preference of course. Bid bots have all but died but if you’re looking for a return, you can get Hive payouts from various services like @tipu, @ocdb, @hodlcommunity and such or LEO payouts from delegating to @leo.voter

Thank you @preparedwombat for mentioning us as a legit service/community to help curation on Hive !

Have a great evening !

I see you consistently upvoted @jrcornel, giving the impression that you valued his content. As you know, a group campaign, based on their own selective criteria which they know not how to express, has downvoted him to zero and basically ruined his existence here on HIVE. As such, I just wanted you to know what one core member of this community had to say about @jrcornel and ask if you still think it’s appropriate not to come to his defence? Really come your own defence? Because not only was that said about him (and it's very representative of the group think, I might add), but it was also said about everyone who valued, curated and upvoted his content.

Yes, that’s how they feel about you too.

Best Regards
