Jamest, what is the value added in the thing of which you hold shares? Why should I want that thing?

I'd buy shares in your bike business. You're smart and a hard worker. So, the value is in the fundamentals.

However, value also depends upon the currency in which something is valued. Do you know what is happening to the $ as we speak?

Crumbling.

You can be the smartest hard-working guy in the world, but if your currency is worth shit then your efforts will be for nothing if your currency tanks.

Though I lack your skills, I've worked hard all of my life. The difference between us, right now, is that I've realised the significance of the currency in which one gets paid.

You did well. Congratulations.

Thanks, but YET AGAIN let me reiterate that my INVESTMENT back in early 2019 was no less than a gamble than your own. Presumably, you had researched your investments prior to investing? Well, guess what, so did I.

As I said, congratulations. You made out well.

I was thinking a bit about this and I am wondering Jamest what market metrics you used in your original prediction of bitcoin gains which informed your opinion. Did those metrics pan out and align with your prediction?

Ahh, I see. Pretty sure I've heard of what you're doing before. Currency speculation.

Nope, not interested. My currency is just fine, since I live where it is used. I really don't bother myself with the price of parts from overseas. I provide a service people need. They seek me out, it needs to be done. Like a loaf of bread, as long as you have money, you don't bother too much how much that bread costs. You buy the loaf you need. Since I buy parts on a cash basis, it's a simple thing to work in their replacement costs in the prices I charge for my parts.

I have lived abroad while being paid in dollars. It doesn't always work so well, as you can imagine.

But locally, the exchange rate for dollars or guineas, what have you, doesn't affect daily life that much here.

How so? Is this somehow related to your ridiculous inflation prediction?
