I'm sure this time next year. There will be more of If you've bought so and so. You would have made so and so.....Where is the next Alpha? This has been my thought lately.

When you find it, share it with your friends and close circle. One thing I have learned about this space
is if you work together as a team. You tend to lean on each other shoulders. With that, the gaps can easily be filled. And trust me, a lot will be achieved.

So many Alpha #Airdrops, #Coins and #Project(s) have done extensively well. Those who got in early...
tends to go home big. Why? They spend less to buy more. It's that simple.

Risk-taking is another thing crypto rewards people for. Nonetheless, not all risks are worth taking.

Reason why it's good to learn the fundamentals and the basics. Before putting your funds into any

New coin: Roman silver denarius of Trajan minted around 107-108 AD, celebrating the victorious culmination of his Dacian Wars. The near mint state denarius depicts a Roman trophaeum; a victory trophy in the form of a tree stump decorated with captured enemy armour and weaponry.
The trophaeum began as an improvised victory trophy quickly erected on the battlefield but soon became a widely recognised symbol of military victory, recreated in marble and incorporated into triumphal monuments; seen for example on the Arch of Marcus Aurelius in Tripoli, Libya.
Most trophaea consisted of a simple tree stump decorated and anthropomorphised with enemy arms; usually a cuirass and helmet, with shields either side. Enemy captives are often shown sat beneath the trophy in defeat, perhaps imitating an authentic post-battle tradition of display

New coin: Roman silver antoninianus "double denarius" of the emperor Pupienus, who ruled jointly with fellow ex-senator Balbinus for just 3 months in 238 AD. The clasped hands on the reverse intend to convince Romans of the harmony between their co-emperors... #numismatics Image
Pupienus is shown around the age of 70, wearing a radiate crown as is usual on antoniani portraits. In April 238 the senate chose to elevate two of their own, Pupienus and Balbinus, in revolt against the thuggish ruler Maximinus Thrax, a move that would anger the Praetorians... Image
The reverse shows the emperors’ clasped hands and proclaims their CARITAS MVTVA – “mutual charity/goodwill”. Other reverses in the same series also assure Romans of their co-rulers’ mutual love (amor), faith (fides) and pietas (duty/devotion). Image

Loonies weren't going to be loonies?!
The #loonie was introduced in 1987 but #Canada has had $1 coins since 1935. They were usually minted in small numbers and were mostly collector's items, not in wide circulation.

The loonie was going to show a Voyager and indigenous person in a canoe as most $1 coins had since 1935 but the engraving device was lost on its way from Manitoba to Ottawa in 1986. The loonie image was designed to prevent anyone making fake coins with the missing device.

$1 coins were 80% silver in 1935 and were often called silver dollars. In 1987 the loonie was 91.5% nickel but today it's multi-ply brass plated steel. No more silver dollars!
