    Weird when it’s a good story for these guys the story is usually short and precise,.and apparently no comments also,… but if its abt ecocash agent line banning and limits and stuff we usually get a mouthful

      🤣😂 I don’t think an essay is necessary for a simple, ongoing weekly update of the rate. And while an upward trend is nice, that ZWL$0.5431 difference is evidently not life changing enough to bring people to the comments compared to the impact the ecocash saga had.
