Do you prefer watching films, videos, series or reading books? Explain why

To introduce the topic, I am going to answer this question. Everybody knows that society is divided in two sides: the one with people who love watching films, videos or series, and the others who are really fond of books. In my case, I prefer reading books.

Firstly, reading books is more interesting than watching TV. It is because you can imagine the characters and the space. Also, you can read wherever you want. Besides, the more you read, the better grammar, orthography and vocabulary you have. I usually read four or five books a month. I am really into novels.

Nevertheless, there are some people who consider that watching films, videos and series is more comfortable than reading books. They say that they don’t have to guess some information about the characters, the space or the time because they know it thanks to the images. Furthermore, they love special effects and what they love the most are the soundtracks. By the way, I am obsessed with the Black Panther’s soundtrack called Pray for me, released by Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd.

In summary, I prefer reading books, although I watch some films and series too. As far as I am concerned, I think that in both cases, we always have something to learn; it could be called culture. I consider that we should do both things to find a balance and so we can talk with any person about no matter what.

Bitcoins, real currency or just a fake?

Nowadays it is a well-known fact that Bitcoins are growing in popularity and some are even calling them the future of money. But how much do we know about them? To begin with, Bitcoin is a digital crypto-currency. Actually, Bitcoin is just like any other currency except for two things. Firstly, it is not a currency. Therefore we can’t use it to pay taxes or settle debts because it is minted neither by governments nor banks.

Next, as it is a digital currency, it just exists online. As I see it, this is a great advantage as you don’t have to buy a Louis Vuitton or a Prada to bring your money. As well, it is the best option for those who love buying things online.

This is when you use your computer to run calculations which verify other Bitcoin transactions. As reward for doing this job, you earn some of them. Indeed, Bitcoins value has recently gone up quite a lot and this has caused a lot of interest. By the way, they were first created in 2009.

In short, the Euro is a legal currency within almost every country in the European Union, except in the UK and some other ones. I think that having the same currency is better for us, especially for those who love travelling without exchanging money. In Spain the legal tender is the Euro. Moreover, the legal one before was the Peseta.
