Why does a nap make you feel fresh but not a night long sleep at times?

Let’s see what science says. In a research carried out in a span of 10 years, it was found that adults who

sleep more than 8 hours every day are at risk of dying earlier.

Also, it is generally believed, sleeping more than this ideal 8-hour duration is a mark of depression or

taking sleeping pills.

When you get up after sleeping for very long, mentally you feel drained – and, in a way, disappointed for

wasting so much of time that you could have spent doing something more productive. You feel tardier.

Also, if you aren’t used to long sleeps, and on one day you decide to sleep long, your body would feel

uncomfortable with it because its functioning isn’t used to it. Its whole routine – at what time it

functions what – would be entirely disrupted. This would make the awake-time difficult.

In short, if your body sleeps anywhere longer than regular, you would feel even more tired.

At the same time, small naps are known to be very effective and helpful. In countless studies it was

found that it helps us with our sleep deficits, boosts our brain functioning, improves memory, as well as

our logical reasoning.

So yeah, this is why long sleep are bad, while small (power) naps are believed to be very good for both

physical and mental health.

Let’s understand one thing—you cannot put all virtual currency in the same basket. There are several distinctions between them—some are centralized, others decentralized; some process transactions very fast, others lag. Let’s take an example here—Bitcoin and Ripple. Bitcoin is finite in number (21 millions). However, the supply of Ripple is infinite (at least for now). Now coming to your exact question, the value of virtual currencies largely depends on the demand and supply. It’s basic economics! If something is limited in supply, its demand will be high. And when its demand is high, so will be the price. However, if something has unlimited supply, its demand will be relatively low, and so will be its price. So, thanks to limited supply, Bitcoin is highly demanded. So its price is skyrocketing, touching nearly $20,000 in the first half of December. People want more Bitcoin, so they are ready to pay more for the units. On the other hand, ripple has unlimited supply. So per unit, its value is less than $3. Of course, on this scene, many factors come into play. But at the end, they all influence demand and supply, which then sways the fate of these virtual currencies. Same theory is applicable for all cryptocurrencies, be it Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, IOTA, and more. aa
