So, with bitcoin hitting the $56,000 mark, the question on everyone’s mind is: What’s next? What does the future hold in terms of price, regulation and adoption of this “digital gold?” I actually wasn’t left out I started investing with Luís when it was $30,000 and today I I’m benefiting from it. Sir luiz platform actually make you earn 10x the amount you invest in crypto..

You can save some trees by shiting in a lake .... Same thing lol it's a good idea but no one will but these they're way ugly, to much to make the material compared to most shoes, great idea but but realistic for today's society in my opinion tho, I may be wrong or correct
