Crypto currency – Looking for a simple and safe way?

Crypto currency for main street? The last year I have been screening for the the best solution for normal people and small business to get into the crypto currency world. Yes, there is a loot going on in the business now, but now I think I have found it.

Wirex - Crypto currency

With Wirex you can invest in bitcoin and pay for online services and use ATMs to take out cash.

Wirex – crypto currency game changer?

Wirex is an innovative crypto payments platform, giving customers the ability to buy, hold, exchange and sell up to 20 traditional and cryptocurrencies from a centralized, intuitive app. This is one of Wirex’s most popular features. The company is proud to have been the world’s first to offer a cryptocurrency rewards scheme.

The programme automatically rewards customers up to 2% back in WXT. This is Wirex’s native token, for using their crypto-enabled debit card in-store or online.

Need some inspiration during lock-down? How was your morning today?

– In 2020, the crypto payment card and bank raised £3.7 million crowdfunding on Crowdcube. This took the valuation of the company to £125 million.

Wirex is based in London, with offices in Singapore, Kyiv, Tokyo, Toronto, Dallas, Dublin and Atlanta. With over $5billion worth of transactions processed already and rapid expansion into new territories, including the US and Japan, Wirex is uniquely placed to support and promote the mass adoption of a cashless society through creative solutions.

– Mastercard principal membership enables Wirex to issue payment cards directly to consumers, making it easier for people to buy, hold and exchange multiple traditional and cryptocurrencies. Consumers can instantly convert their cryptocurrencies into traditional fiat currency, which can be spent everywhere Mastercard is accepted.


Have a look at http://berg.ink/wirex and sign up for free and please give me your feedback. Do you agree that this can be a great way to get into the crypto currency?

What habits play a role in your life?

Perhaps dieting and smoking spring to mind. But our lives are actually full of many habits.

A minimum of one-third of our waking life powered by our unconscious mind. We operate on auto-pilot, not fully cognizant of what we’re doing while we’re doing it.

Read more and search for “Making Habits, Breaking Habits” at Blinkist.com

It’s not surprising to find you have many more habits than you might think. Social habits, such as who sits where at the family dinner table; work routines like saying “mm hmm” and “a-ha” during meetings; eating habits that help us sift through multitudes of food-related decisions every day – and the list goes on!

Do you ever catch yourself checking your email for the hundredth time only to discover that, still, nothing interesting has arrived in your inbox? We call this the partial reinforcement extinction effect. Why are we repeating the same action, even without reward?

But there are other habits that you can’t see: habits of thought. If they are negative in nature, we can connect these habits to mental illnesses such as depression.

Read more at 526People.com – Get up in the morning and Bootstrap yourself

Whether thoughts are positive or negative depends on our appraisal of something that happens to us, and sometimes we appraise in unhealthy ways. Imagine you lost your job. If you’re in the habit of perceiving yourself as powerless and culpable, you’ll have trouble fighting the negative emotions that unemployment entails.

Another type of pattern is rumination – when you think about something repeatedly. Some say that retrospection can help us learn from our supposed failures, but there’s a difference between reviewing your experiences and wallowing in the misery and pain of them.
