3/3 “work for passion, they can work for their heart, they can work for what they’re really good at. And everybody is going to do better if we do that, it’s not like only some people are going to do better…” — Alex Mashinsky

1/9 "Again, Voice over IP, you’ll say, wait a second, over 4 or 5 billion people use Voice over IP. How can anything be bigger than that? I should be just resting on my laurels. But crypto, the blockchain, is even bigger, because if I’m right, it touches all the
2/9 “money in the world. So you tell me, what’s bigger; us being able to talk to each other or all the money in the world? All the money in the world touches every industry, everything that exists, because everything in one way or another is connected to money.
3/9 “We’ve had about 700 years of banking that brought us to where we are today, since the Venetians, or the Medicis, who kind of invented banking in Italy, we migrated to a world in which, again, the large banks are bigger than most countries.

Lots of people say they wish they knew about CEL when it was $0.05. Easy to say now in hindsight. But let me tell you, it was extremely hard to pull the trigger back then. There were no AMAs, no Twitter Spaces, 30K members, 7,500 active users, $200M AUM, lots of FUD on Twitter
about @Mashinsky and @CelsiusNetwork let’s just say “not doing the right thing,” and people like me and @GinisAlexander have to spend days defending this platform with vigor. So it’s easy to talk now, but a lot of you wouldn’t buy CEL at $0.05 because you couldn’t propel
yourself into the future & say this project will be one of the best projects in crypto & worth me spending $100,000 & buying CEL at $0.05 and getting 2 million CEL tokens. The only way you pull the trigger & buy $100,000 worth of CEL is if you thoroughly understood the project.

1/7 “Our mission, that 100 million people, it’s not about just getting 100 million. The key is to get these 100 million people to achieve financial independence, to achieve financial freedom. Today, if you go on our website Celsius.Network, you

Now all understand what @MarkYusko was saying: There are no Democrats or Republicans, there’s just ‘in’ and ‘out.’ If you’re out, you’ll do and say anything to get into power; and vice versa, if you’re in, you’ll do and say anything to stay in power.
Our current monetary system is nothing more than a giant Ponzi scheme, masquerading as acting in the best interest of its citizens, led by the @federalreserve, a private corporation with shareholders.
This is simply not a fair system. I do all the work but yet the government collects 65% of my wages in taxes. You say what, nonsense, @Otisa502, I only pay 30%. OK then. Let’s name a few of the taxes: Income tax 30%; property tax; sales tax 8.5%; capital gains tax 30%; tolls to

1/39 RYAN (@RyanSAdams): “I want to maybe end on this question, which is: What advice do you have for the crypto natives? Like, again, a lot of people, as we started this podcast listening to Bankless (@BanklessHQ), crypto is really their first experience in investing.
2/39 “They're learning about investing through crypto, which is sort of bizarre. I think they're leveling up faster than they might in the real world. But there are still some timeless lessons that can be applied from traditional investments here. What are those? Share some.”
3/39 MARK (@MarkYusko): “So the first is, to understand the difference between investing, trading, speculating and gambling. None of them are bad or good necessarily. Just like introvert and extrovert; people are like, oh, introverts are not cool and extroverts are cool.
