  • So, with bitcoin hitting the $56,000 mark, the question on everyone’s mind is: What’s next? What does the future hold in terms of price, regulation and adoption of this “digital gold?” I actually wasn’t left out I started investing with Luís when it was $30,000 and today I I’m benefiting from it. Sir luiz platform actually make you earn 10x the amount you invest in crypto.

  • Oh wow! My mother grew up in that area, just ten minutes on foot from Uncle Salama’s Dye house, and I used to play in these streets as kid when we visited my grandma. Never thought I’d come across a video from Business insider about an odd dye house in ElDarb ElAhmar that you’d easily mess if passed by it. Seems kinda surreal 😀

  • Salama have a site or a way to order his textiles ? Because personally I think that if programs like this are going to segments like these they should not make them for more content but be beneficial to people or family businesses. Like help them start a website to sell their products and services and also write a bio on how for example Salama business is a family-owned business and the processes in which they die their texts.

  • We as consumers need to get over idea that cheaper is better. You get what you pay for is a mantra for a reason. The Chinese has filled Walmart with cheaply made items manufactured and sold so cheaply that they intend for you to just throw them away and buy new. So are you really saving money or just spending more over a long time frame?
