    Still money to be made in crypto. DEFI is where crypto was maybe 5 years ago. Also look into DAOs. Plenty of info out there when you are ready to jump in.

    Premium connectivity Spotify

    When connected to Wi-Fi either at home/work or via mobile you can use Spotify without a premium subscription. I start up a Spotify playlist before leaving home and it will keep playing after engaging drive and losing the Wi-Fi. Most playlists last a fair while, even when skipping tracks I don't...
