Morning fellow CTP Talkers and Steemians,
This morning I want to touch on FEARS. I wonder what your fears, online and offline are?
I will tell you mine. Now I have to say they are not with me all the time, but they do creep into my mind now and then. Especially when so much is going on in the world and life.
I fear that every morning when I wake up that all this will be gone away. That there will be no more Steem and no more CTP Talk. I know it is highly unlikely that will every happen.
I fear for the world right now with COVID-19. I am one of those people that track stuff. Just ask my wife how I track hurricanes and snow storms. And now I have been tracking the COVID-19 since the new year. I don't like what I am seeing.
I fear for the finances of myself and others. Watching the markets around the world drop yesterday. The DOW in the USA dropping by over 1000 points. I am not even going to look at my retirement investments.
I fear for my job. If the world goes into an economic down spin. We all know what that can do.
I fear the future because of all this.
Now that I got all that off my check I also have HOPE.
I know that showing up every day here on CTP Talk and Steem is the key. And interaction with people from around the world and being able to share, interact, and read their thoughts gives me hope on the future of the online world and the offline world.
My father was very young during the 1918 Spanish flu. He had it, and he survived it. I remember his stories and maybe that is why I am so fasinated by the COVID-19.
Mostly the people here give me Hope. I read blogs daily, I am in Discord daily. And the sense of community and family gives me hope. It is that simple.
So here is some sad market reports.
CTP Token: Last: 0.00999 STEEM / $0.00201 24h Vol: 30 STEEM / $6.00 Bid: 0.00999 STEEM Ask: 0.02988501 STEEM (well it seems to be holding its own and doing not bad)
Steem: $0.199313 USD (-6.77%) 0.00002076 BTC (-5.34%)
Tron: $0.019618 USD (-4.30%) 0.00000204 BTC (-2.85%)
Bitcoin: $9,602.48 USD (-1.49%)
I am surprised by Bitcoin. I thought will the drop in the markets worldwide and the rise in the price of Gold yesterday that I might see Bitcoin rise along. But not yet.
Have a great day all.
