This is Ross Ulbricht’s 6th Christmas in prison. A powerful message was posted on his Twitter today.

Here's a message posted on Ross Ulbricht's Twitter today:

"Each morning I wake up in this tiny cell, I dread facing another day. Gratitude is the antidote I use, giving thanks just to be alive, to be healthy, to have so many wonderful people in my life. "Thank you" is my mantra all day. It turns dread into joy even here."

If you haven't done so, you can sign his petition for clemency here.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Andrew Ross Sorkin, author of ” Too Big To Fail”, just mention Bitcoin on CNN (Merconish Show), stating that it is spreading fast and new generations trust it more than Central Banks.

He painted Bitcoin in a positive light, as a way to get free from Central Powers, since 'it is decentralized and nobody controls' it.

TIL that the FBI seized 144,000 bitcoins from Ross Ulbricht (silk road guy) in 2013 following his arrest and conviction. They were valued at close to $28.5million at the time of seizure. They’re now worth $1.9billion.
