twitter fortune teller dates

I timidly discovered the world of blockchain at the end of 2018 during my quest for financial freedom. Initially moderately invested, it was only two years later that I took the risk to bet everything on the movement that was taking shape at the time. Then I dedicate 2021 to training myself better to gain more knowledge and seriousness. As I often say, I still have a billion things to learn. And what I do know, I want to share with you.
