Thoughts on the BTC price in this current halving cycle, particularly with respect to margin trading.
It's fairly broadly accepted that the BTC price goes up in cycles which roughly correlates with each halving due to reduced supply. However this cycle the price pattern seems to be a little different to previous cycles. I tend to think this is due to

Rambling thoughts on Social Media
I don't really like 'social media', I'm not that interested in what someone is eating or thinking (for the most part). What I really want is one giant RSS feed of press releases of interesting news of the day as close to the source as possible.

Twitter is in quite a vulnerable position as a company. There hasn't been much in the way of user growth. There hasn't been much improvement in technology or features.

An interesting feature to add would be to allow users to create subtopics that can be subscribed to. So if you aren't interested in someone's politics for example you don't have to subscribe to that subtopic. At the moment on most platforms you need to create a separate account to isolate topics.
