Did the Dutch 18 yr old have to pay for his seat on the blue origin flight or was he gifted it?

He paid for a seat on a future flight and got bumped up; I doubt he had to pay the difference

What was the scheduling appointment that the original guy had, that’s the question

Someone help me understand why they need/want to have this extra guest fly with them? It’s not like Bezos needs the 30mm

I don’t think the 18 year old was his choice, though I guess he might’ve specifically picked him following the original guy falling through

Understandably, there is a bias towards BTC and ETH. While the alt coins are more risky (Link, Cardano, XLM, Matic, loop, etc.) their price is much more reasonable. That’s why I don’t understand why people say “I will only buy BTC and ETH”. That seems short sighted when you can put at least 10% in alt coins and hit it big if they take off. It doesn’t have to be a large allocation yet people are hesitant. This comes from a new crypto investor. Not financial advice.

Back on the market and I’m coming to find two things: 1. Less desirable agencies are the ones who want people back on-site soon, with no wiggle room for remote work. 2.

Example: Midwest based agency paying Midwest salaries to folks living in places like NY, SF, LA. 🧐🧐🧐🧐
