Who killed the crypto boom?
It has been a shocking year for crypto investors, the year that crypto came crashing down to earth.
What began as a trickle became a turning point for crypto, losing their luster and exposed as a fringe product that most sensitive, experienced investors approached with skepticism.
So how did crypto climb so high under the cover of the pandemic?
By 2022, the ads were everywhere. Crypto was taking over the superbowl, and global sport.
Hollywood’s biggest names were jumping on board, and suddenly the big banking firms were taking notice.
The tokens might have been virtual, but crypto was become a real threat, and of real interest to next gen investors. #crypto #ftx #bitcoin

Elon Musk’s Tesla was blasted into space five years ago
Musk’s Tesla is currently floating through the galaxy
Exactly five years ago,Elon Musk’s Tesla roadster was launched into space to travel on an endless joy ride through the cosmic wilderness.
And how’s this for a journey.
On its anniversary, estimates suggest the vehicle has completed three and one quarter loops around the sun and is sitting 326 kilometres from Earth.
It’s also logged up more than 4 billion kilometres, mostly travelling through a barren vacuum.
In space terms, it did get close to Mars at one point – passing within 8 million ks of the planet – or about 20 times the distance between the Earth and the moon.
Although, it’s difficult to say where the vehicle is exactly with or whether it’s still even in one piece.
It is possible the roadster may have been hit by a meteoroid or eroded by radiation. #trending #fetured
