Congratulations @behzadsharifi! You have won 2500 XSTUSD.
Crypto is here to stay. Developers are here to build. Brands are here to grow.
Do not be mistaken by catchy doom-foreshadowing articles and videos. Their only use is to catch the attention, to profit from the resentment and other negative emotions.

Take one step away from the biased information and look for the facts. Give yourself time to analyze it and come up with your own conclusions.
Congratulations @moderneremite! You have won 1500 XSTUSD.

Yay, @mickey-maler! You’ve won 1000 XSTUSD.
