    BIP – The hottest new currency in 2020
    If anyone ever knows that the DRK (DeFi project) currency only increased by 40 times, then I recommend introducing another currency that surpasses DRK, BIP (Minter Networt) .BIP has the following advantages:
    -BIP is both a platform currency like ETH, NEO, EOS, WASE, ADA, TRON, DRK … (meaning it can generate many other tokens based on the BIP platform and sell ICOs, STOs …) Currency like XRP, XLM … Transferring money via BIP takes less than 5 seconds (200 times faster than the currency above)
    -There is minterpay, including transferring money from BIP to fifat money worldwide, buying cards and gifts via BIP, calling cards via BIP around the world …. Even in Russia , they also pay for bread, coffee, electricity and water through BIP
    -BIP has API for instant money transfer and payment
    – BIP bet is 54.46% per annum (meaning you have a passive income for hours, get interest after 10 minutes of deposit). Limited to 10 billion coins in 6 years. Currently there are 2.2 billion. There are 5 more years to exploit the remaining 7.8 billion BIP
    (Of those 2.2 billion BIPs, 2.1 billion of the coins were locked to continue mining. That means people are making the most of it.)
    How to authorize BIP to earn interest
    -BIP with a diverse ecosystem of thousands of tokens created from the BIP platform can exchange with BIP (this is much better than DRK)
    – in terms of total BIP supply, total supply is 10 billion while total supply of DRK is 15 billion
    -In price: DRK has increased by 40 times while BIP has only been on the market for 2 months so few people know that it is still very low.
    -Learn about BIP here:
    -Buy BIP on 3 floors:
    1. (should buy this floor because of price stability, fee rags, kyc within 5 minutes or not kyc also)
    (These two exchanges can buy BIP but it is expensive and the fees are high.)

    I work at Fortune 500 company on contract as a global DevOps Engineer as my full-time job, however I work at two crypto startups to supplement my income with my extra time and I find the pure passion and excitement within these startups to be refreshing, something you don't see in these large bureaucratic companies. Not to mention, what you're building is typically used by hundreds or thousands of users, as a developer it's extremely satisfying to see tools and apps you've built used by other users and not just for internal use.
