    We have far too many tourists in Switzerland. We locals feel foreign in our own country. Therefore, please, please, do not visit Switzerland. Tourism destroys also the environment and is bad for the climate. Also, Switzerland is not so beautiful and also very expensive. This video does not show reality.

    Certainly won't be a millionaire at the end of this recent fluctuation, but however I had 55k invested 6 months ago in Bitcoin I am sitting at 482k now with 50% in eth and 20% in other alts, I am very thankful to expert Mr billy Fabio who made this possible by helping me trade, maybe the next time I'II have enough to become a millionaire. LESSON spend your money on things that brings back money not on things that are difficult to maintain.
