Crypto Is Coming

Crypto is Coming Ready or Not.

08/12/2022, Update: The linked article at the end of this blog to Yahoo.com Finance presents strong evidence about the presence and growth of cryptocurrencies around the world.

Several financial institutions have been investigating how to implement cryptocurrency to plan for what is to come, ready or not (I’m not writing about that aspect of Crypto).

Numerous things have changed since I originally posted this blog last year, including big losses in the crypto and stock markets; however, in recent weeks the markets regained some of its lost territory.

Of significance to this blog, BlackRock, an American multinational management corporation, and the largest asset manager, partnered with Coinbase to make cryptocurrency trading more available to financial institutions. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/blackrock-teams-coinbase-crypto-market-120000847.html

The Metaverse

The Digital World continues to expand with the Metaverse plans into the future, where trillions of dollars will be made as people venture into a virtual world.

At the end of this blog, I embedded a YouTube video for more information about how the Metaverse will work and affect the world in which we live.

In anticipation of the Metaverse, companies like Facebook/Meta will lead the way into the new world, unless something changes.

Cryptocurrencies will play a large role in the Metaverse as payment plans and numerous other necessary functions for something so vast that most of our minds cannot grasp its magnitude.

Stocks with Josh on YouTube

Stocks with Josh is one of my favorite YouTubers who I believe is legit and does NOT Pump and Dump cryptocurrency or stocks (influence purchases to increase prices and then sell personal shares). He teaches his viewers how to read the charts and seems to truly want to help others.

I am not paid to promote him or the others on YouTube that I sometimes refer to in my blogs.

TOP METAVERSE STOCKS

According to many, the Metaverse is the future. Personally, I have bought a few coins that will find a place inside the Metaverse. Right now I own small quantities of Sandbox (SAND), Decentraland (MANA), and Enjin Coin (ENJ), which should play some role in the Metaverse.

Revising a Life-10

Life continues to amaze me as I move along the road to Happy Destiny, wherever that road may lead. Thus far, my life continues to be different from what I imagined before my release.

More on Amazing Life: For instance, when released on August 28, 2018, no one would have probably imagined that I would be appearing on an Atlanta television show without a Wanted Poster in the background. 🙂

Leaving my old life behind as I walked out the prison gates, I had never even used a cellphone. This blog was started by my publisher/friend, who I paid to help me self-publish my books and to start this blog to promote my books, as well as to let my voice be heard beyond prison walls.

Should anyone be wondering, Nope, I was not featured on the cover of the magazine shown above: it was a scam artist’s work who tried to convince me that I had won the Facebook Lottery. I didn’t go for it but did confiscate the photo. 🙂

August 3, 2022, Update: I appeared on a television show in Atlanta and shared part of my story in hope of helping others, not once, but twice. You may view the first filming on YouTube at A Steadfast Journey (Bridging the Gap), which was televised Monday, July 25, 2022, between 11:00-11:30 PM, Eastern Standard Time.

WATC 57.1 may also be viewed on Facebook.

New Life: Well, I knew my new life did not include any planned activities that involved the risk of my mugshot landing on a Wanted Poster. That is because I changed my life in 1995 by making a decision to turn my will and life over to the care of the God of my understanding, as suggested in Step Three of Twelve Step programs, which I did not belong to during the early days of my new life.

After the first filming, someone at the television station asked Dr. Milsap, “Where did you find that guy?” and expressed an interest on me possibly appearing on the regular show:

Atlanta’s 57, WATC-TV

Ironically, the name of the city and year correlates to my birthdate: In 1957 I was born in Atlanta, Georgia. And then as I was preparing to post this blog, I noticed that it was draft #57. 🙂

Closing: Though I have a lot more to write about, I have a forty-hour job I must report to today so I can pay my bills. My popularity has not earned me very much, but it does stroke my ego and makes me proud to be in a position to report positive aspects about my Life After Release, which I write to show others that we can change our lives if willing to put in the work.

For me, I just continue to do the next right thing and to Let Go and Let God, then I know it will be okay if I stay focused on traveling along the road to Happy Destiny.

Happy Independence Day-2022



Happy Independence Day to those in America who celebrate its independence.

Two years ago, I wrote about my personal Independence Day worthy of celebration. Click Here to read or search Independence Day for that post or others in relation to this special day, whether celebrating America’s Independence or your Independence from something meaningful.

Coming Soon

My plan for the last couple months has been to post another Life After Release. The last one I posted was in December 2021. Life After Release-10 is Coming Soon.

Since Life After Release-9, a lot of things have changed in my life on many levels. More will be revealed, including the story behind the photo I posted above, which was one of those God Shots I’ve experienced throughout the years.

Right now, though, I have to get ready to go to my Forty Hour job at Goodwill of North Georgia.
