Re: Bill Gates comment on cryptos & drug deaths. The rise in US drug deaths isn’t caused by cryptocurrency. It’s caused by government & physical cash.

Singapore has embraced cryptocurrency, and crypto exchanges. Yet, in rankings of 200 countries around the world, Singapore is still at the bottom in terms of drug usage & drug overdose deaths.

The link between cryptocurrency usage & drug overdose deaths is weak.

In the past 15 years, there has been a rise in USA drug overdose deaths. But it wasn’t driven by cryptocurrency.

It was driven by government-approved Oxycontin, government-approved doctors, government-approved pharmacies, and people holding bags of government-printed dollars, lined up outside government-approved pill mills, all in plain sight, which fueled widespread opioid addiction.

February 28, 2018 PR 0

LiveEdu - Education EcosystemEducation Ecosystem (LiveEdu has announced that their Education token will be issued to crowdsale contributors and also listed on exchanges this week.

CEO, Dr. Michael J. Garbade has this to say, “As ICO contributors know, due to legal restrictions we could not start work with centralized exchange listings until our ICO Round I was closed. This issue slowed us down but we have made progress with the help of our advisors. We have already closed deals with three exchanges where Education tokens will be listed, namely Bibox, and Exchange 3. Exchange 3 will announce the listing themselves due to their policy. Our goal after these three listings is to get listed on two Tier 1 exchanges with whom we are currently in discussion. All of these exchanges will list Education tokens with ETH and BTC pairs.”
