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.

Life After Release-8

Big Springs Park

I love a walk in the Park! My life after release has not been one. That hasn’t deterred me from continuing to pursue a better life. I’ll clarify.

The World refuses to work According to Wayne’s plans but I continue to feel Blessed by the Best and to maintain an Attitude of Gratitude.

Health

A few doctors have complimented me on my overall health condition at my age: I don’t look or feel my age and don’t have to take several medications to function and stay well.

At work I can run circles around most of the other employees when it comes to strength and endurance.

Relationships

Update: September 26, 2021: Since my release I have been cautious about getting involved in relationships. In the last two months I’ve met three top contenders who captivated my attention, with the last one who celebrated her birthday today.

Another lovely lady continues to keep me in the Friend Zone but there have been signs of progress about our relationship moving in a positive direction. We are good friends and that is important but I want more! 🙂

“What I would like is that special lady who loves me the way I will love her and then perhaps I will perceive my life as great.” Year One of New Life by Wayne T. Dowdy | STRAIGHT FROM THE PEN

Life Goes On and I am okay with the life I have, though it is not how I imagined it would be before I walked out of the prison gates as a free man.

I am fortunate to be alive and in as good of health as I am to complain about anything that happens in relationships. When and if the time comes for me to be in a serious (or a not-so-serious) relationship with a woman, it will happen and my being more celibate than some priest will end as another junction in life begins.

I am okay either way: A fighter and survivor I am!


Finances

My investment plans went great for a few months but then just as for thousands of others, my account values over recent months have gone downhill; however, I am still in the Green in most areas and am grateful to not have been as impacted by the stock market corrections as severely as thousands of investors and traders.

In the rapid changing and volatile Crypto market, devastating is one word to describe activities over the last few months, with over 500 billion lost within a couple of days at one point.

Fortunate for me, I didn’t have that much to lose and retained most of my funds.

To let people know about some of the things I do as a successfully-reintegrated individual, I wrote about the Trading Apps I Use. Last weekend, over the three previous days I had lost between $450-600.00 in Crypto-Trading, a small sum in comparison to typical traders. By Monday at Noon, I recouped the losses. That’s Crypto, up and down, with some swings as drastic as 25-75%.

A few weeks ago I went to a birthday party and swam in a pool alone after the children went back inside with the adults. It was nice having the privilege to get some sun and enjoy being alive and well after all these years.

In the meantime, I will continue to do my normal things to avoid becoming a recidivist, going to Twelve Step meetings to share my experience, strength and hope, remembering where I came from and where I can return if I decide to return to old behaviors.

Though overworked and underpaid by my employer; I remain grateful for my job because it helps to keep me healthy and provides an opportunity for me to meet a lot of lovely ladies I would not otherwise see. One of whom may just be my next wife, whether she drives a Mercedes or not. 🙂
