    I am still playing Valheim with my gf, we still enjoy the farming and minecraftesque building on the game at your own peace. Still the game has a lot of room for improvement as it gets repetitive. For the value it is and the price is totally worth it for a multiplayer game with your friends and famiily.

    I will give the same opinion i did on other social media post but the author did not speak at all of other blockchains as proof of stake were there is no environmental and mining problem as Bitcoin. The author gives good points about the quick rich schemes, ponzy and other related problems cryptocurrencies have since 2013 but the panorama in 2021 is different with proven blockchains as Ethereum and Monero.

    The only way some are speculating on how they could move it is trade them to XMR (Monero is completely anonymous) using Atomic Swaps (later added to Monero this year to trade XMR and Bitcoin without an exchange as middleman). Other comment i read who would want to trade tainted Bitcoin to Monero?, someone offered to buy some of this Bitcoin to have them as NFT collective.
