Consensus 2018 starts with a bang as Winklevoss twins announce Zcash, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash support on Gemini and NYCEDC to make New York City a blockchain hub.

May 14th was the first day of Consensus 2018 in New York City. According to Barry Silbert, CEO and Founder of CoinDesk’s parent company Digital Currency Group, the final attendance count was about 8,500.

Consensus is one of the largest blockchain conferences in the world and tripled their attendance from last year’s event (2,700).

This event is a huge platform to announce news and there was no shortage of that. Below is the most important news announced.

  12. 它讓神經原在常規的緊張鍛煉中進行共振燃燒,由此帶來健身運動所無法達到的效果。Ion Magnum複雜的振動波是基于於二十多年對神經原燃燒信號的研究手工製作的。 設備製造者的臨床研究結果顯示,30分鐘的治療相當於在健身房10個小時的運動,可以燃燒高達5000卡路里的熱量。其他臨床研究顯示肌肉生成的速度以及脂肪(表面脂肪以及深部脂肪)减少的速度相應都比運動的效果更好。對於Ion Magnum沒有進行理療的部位,甚至會有抗衰老防氧化的效果。 有受試者治療一次之後同一個部位减掉了3-4英寸(不像其他减肥治療中宣稱的那樣,一次治療减掉了5英寸,但那是全身20多個部位加起來减掉的尺寸)。同時,它還可以减掉脖子和下巴的脂肪,讓你的雙下巴消失 . 每次治療需要25分鐘。治療前後的效果非常明顯,而且會持續1-2天。要想達到更好的效果,最好接受1-2個小時的治療。

In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.| I couldn’t resist commenting. I have spent 2 hours looking for such infos. I will also share it with some friends interested in it. I’ve just bookmarked this web. Finished with the task done, I’ll watch some live gay Webcams. Thank you!! Greetings from Los Angeles!
