Category5 Lockdown Response: A Message from Robbie Ferguson

Our studio has once again been placed under a state of emergency lockdown. The global COVID-19 pandemic has forced businesses to close their doors, and we don't want to be one of those. In order to ensure the longevity of our show -- our business -- Robbie Ferguson, owner of the Category5 TV Network, must take swift and decisive action. In this statement, Robbie will speak about what is happening, what is changing and why, and how viewers can participate in fun ways during this time of necessary change.

The toxic Crypto Industry: I am right, you are wrong!

The crypto-industry is a toxic industry. Similar to politics, people are polarizing by trying to convince everybody else that their point of view is the right one.
