Re: Blockchain technology

Re: Blockchain technology

India is making a big mistake by banning Bitcoin (as some recent reports suggest). It cannot be banned and the ban will not stick. China banned it 4 times or something. BTC is volatile but the value appreciates, USD is stable but the value depreciates, act accordingly. BTC going to 200 K in 2021, 10...

The media does not decide that Biden won. If (big IF) Trump can prove significant irregularities, he will manage to get the electoral votes...

In the last NSA's video in Rishikesh, he made the important statement that India will fight in the country and outside it, but not for selfish reasons. This has not received much attention.
If the speculation is that he is referring to Afgh, that means we have an understanding with the US about POK ?.

Ajit Doval's talk at Rishikesh. All his speeches are killers. Sorry, my skills are not adequate for translation.

I listened from 31:30 onwards..I find Jaishankar weak. He has no opinion on why China did what they did. He is still clinging to peace agreements with China. Living in the past. Those agreements are in tatters, when will leadership realize that and move on.

"To fight and shed blood is not so good. To make money and things is better.

So faced with such an enemy do you:

1) engage him in a race to build infrastructure which he loves to do

or

2) make him fight and shed blood which he loathes to do?"
