Happy Easter Sunday.  This month's photo is my friend Brian and brother Travis. Brian is an avid sportsman, and his work outs' involve hiking the steep terrain just South of the Entiat Valley - this day, Brian took myself, Travis, up a 3300' vertical trek, the kicker here, is that Brian had 60 lbs in his pack, just to make this fair! It's a good reminder that the outdoors we are blessed to have, just don't look at them, get out there and enjoy them, the reward is such views as this.

This week we have shared several blog posts on our website; In North Central Washington - the emerging technology of Block Chain utilizing the lower power costs of we all have, are in the midst of placing this area we live the focal spot in the United States for the future.  Block Chain and Bitcoin are often synonymous but are so vastly different. Blockchain is the digital, distributed, and decentralized ledger that records transactions in a transparent and unchanging manner, without the need for a financial intermediary. In even plainer English, it's a transparent means of transferring money from one party to another, or of recording data, without the need for a bank or third-party intermediary.   Just recent news, West Virginia will be the first state in America that will use this technology for voting - read this article to learn more.   As NCW becomes more known in this field, the local economy will diversify and those that own real estate, will likely see increased home and property values.  The PUD and Chelan County have recently put moratorium's on this technology due to residents using miners (computers that use a lot of power) in residential zoning - and the power infrastructure was not set up to handle the high demand that these machines use - which makes sense and is a good move.  But this technology is emerging so fast that NCW is in perfect position to be the "Fort Knox" of the country for Block Chain, and those words were from a meeting of local officials.

All the best, and wish you all a great April ahead from all of us at AGENT509.
