The black color has nothing to do with the soil. It’s the aluminum chloride they add to the mix. The black layer on the outside is Copper oxide. Edit: Also his logic behind the magnetic effect is too funny😂😂.

What IS NOT MENTIONED is that the price of silver is LOWER in india than the rest of the world. Because they've had SO much in the ground and the government DELIBERATELY tries to keep it in the country. Needless to say MUCH is smuggled out and sold at world market prices in other countries.

Unforunately the hardwork cannot be appreciated in monetary terms , its simply bygone era. bt coming to how retailers make all the money this people could move into more touristy area and offer live workshop show people could see them doing and buy from them at sametime. but that would need some level of govt support. considering how crony we are its unlikely for them to happen

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.
