Some nice developments going on. I need to find an idiot's guide to these 'wrapped' tokens. A lot of that stuff goes over my head.

$Hive is holding pretty well around 30c. I'd love to see it go higher. Someone pointed me to an account that is milking $300 posts on 'the other place'. They need to sink without trace now it's gone to pot, but someone is propping up the coin.


Lots of updates and that is what I talked about "The Market is Active"
and this is the best thing

It seems odd that peakd and could have the same numbers on anything, let alone two different things.
Is this correct?
