Instead of apologizing to the community for the fake headline news of the non-existent "police raid", which damaged our reputation, and $btc price, theBlock now tries to argue if there was an office, if CZ had a meeting… who cares?

5. Charlie Shrem’s tweet about the best way to hold bitcoin
Charlie Shrem, an entrepreneur and bitcoin advocate, opined that the best way to earn more through bitcoin was to stay invested in the cryptocurrency for a longer time such as ten to 20 years. Industry experts, in fact, suggest that those investing in crypto markets should hold at least one bitcoin for a longer term, added Charlie.
Honestly the best way to hold #bitcoin forever is to get 5 to 10 BTC and keep it in the cold storage that even you can’t access. I truly think that 5 to 10 Bitcoin will be super life-changing money in 20 years from now. Everything else just spend and use as you want
