Bitcoin Is Losing in the Dark Markets
Today, my wife and I set sail (as in, hop in our Chevy Express 1500 van and travel from Pennsylvania to Texas). We’ll be on the road for about a week as we take our time and stroll through Virginia, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and the rest of the Bible belt toward my earthly home. We’ll be there for a couple of months.
At any rate, today’s newsletter is short so that we can prepare the van for travel and get on the road. See you on the other side! Enjoy the read.

5 VPNs that accept crypto.
Vitalik Buterin says crypto will not replace fiat money. I rarely disagree with Buterin. In this case, I’ll continue to agree. Crypto will not replace fiat money. What will happen is governments will pull crypto into their regulatory frameworks. It will exist alongside fiat and be another monetary option for consumers in the nations where it is legal. I think that will be a good thing. The more choices, the better.
