  1. Do you make money on your YouTube channel? How much? I’m just curious if you reinvest the profits into buying more coins?

  2. Would you ever invest in cryptocurrency? What if you knew how to construct a diversified portfolio?

  3. I just recently acquired this coin. I got it for only $20 which I thought was a great deal! I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing great info!

  4. The Philadelphia exhibition, which was considered to be a world’s fair, was also a colossal failure, experiencing embarrassingly low attendance. Some of the exhibit buildings were never finished and the city and organizers lost millions of dollars.
