I have kept a running log detailing what I am to do with my new-found wealth for years. I totally agree with your simplistic but yet important overview. Indeed, put a team together and prevent headaches and perhaps heartache in the long run. I would rather prefer keeping my wealth in crypto than exchanging into fiat. The day is nearly here and the beauty is, each member has the freedom to decide how they will honor their financial foundation! Florry Alfredo Irina
