Hey guys!!  I'm curious? Who is into cryptocurrency and are you having any luck?  I have just opened 3 wallets and watching this thing closely. I had the opportunity to buy bitcoin back in 2008 for less than a bloody KFC meal and didnt and now look at it!! Friggin spewing about that but my son, who is a gold miner has plenty of his mining mates buying into the cryptos and making some good returns.  Obviously they have the money to play with but I really don't feel like letting anymore doors close in my face.  What do you all think?

Alex Jones? Lol 

Who do you think created these crypto-currencies? (If you don't know the answer then you are already in over your head.)

How much of a gambler are you NanneeRose? And what is your intention?

The reality is that cryptos are massively speculative bets that have a facade of currency usage in commerce.

The facade is kept intact through the presently upward moving prices relative to gooberment issued Fed Notes.

And what ultimately happens to facades? Well - before they are eventually exposed they can go through a period of mania, panic and then crash.

Clearly Bitcoin is in mania mode. History is littered with mania-panic-crash scenarios. How skilled are you at recognizing when to get out? (Or to get in for that matter.) 

Do you realize that presently, because of the infrastructure, it can take hours and sometimes up to a full day to make a transaction? 

What will happen when the panic sets in and you are trying to get out and the "transaction highway" is clogged like I-75 out of FL before a hurricane?

And what about the capital gains taxes? The IRS is already all over this. Oh - you thought Bitcoin was anonymous? Lol

Do you have the cash to pay your taxes with? The IRS doesn't accept Bitcoin as payment.

Hey there Metech and thanks so much for your response. I am a huge gambler but I set limits on what I can spend then  stop so I am not 'addictive' with the gambling.  Do I know what I am doing NO NO NO thats why I asked.  Am I going to throw crazy amounts of money at something I don't know nope nope nope been there with the dinar.  I can at least see the bitcoin is in manic mode but I was more thinking of the other cryptocurrencies that aren't in manic mode?

6 HODL the coin! on Fri Dec 08, 2017 5:29 pm

~Ann~


I got in awhile back.  I only bought a few just to have my foot in the door until I could see where it was going; so glad I did.  I just hodl and wait.  I have a feeling this is not going away.  It is still early with only about 30% of the world pop even aware of what it is, so it's still cheap compared to where it is projected to go.   The great thing is you don't have to buy a whole coin; you can buy "bits" of a coin for how ever many dollars worth you want.  I would suggest that you just keep buying bits and holding them.  I only buy Bitcoin, but I'm thinking Litecoin might be a good thing to start buying too.  People are concerned about it because you are depending on so many things beyond your control, but the same argument could be made about banking these days, and there are paper wallets that you can store your coinage in if you want to have it in your safe keeping.  :)

Thanks so much Ann I really appreciate your input!  What wallet are you using?  My son is going to buy me Litecoin and that's a good idea about buying 'bits' of coin, I will look into that. I feel like this is ground floor and I have missed sooooo many ground floor opportunities in the past so don't want to miss another one if at all possible! :)

For those who are buying any crypto have you ever considered that you are contributing towards your own further enslavement? 

Have you considered that cryptos are a vehicle driving us towards a completely cashless society? Have you not considered how dangerous this is?

You will be at the mercy of some faceless and soulless machine. 

What do you think will happen to the voices of dissent? Silenced with the click of a mouse when they turn off your e-cash to buy food. I will go so far as to say it won't even take a click of a mouse. It will be keyword triggered - done automatically. 

Say the wrong thing over your phone or post the wrong message somewhere and you are locked out until you go for "counseling" and some "remedial training".

The gullibility and lack of critical thinking of most Americans never ceases to amaze me.

The Bitcoin Phenomenon part 1

December 9, 2017 / Marcus Curtis

If you have watched the news recently you may have heard about tremendous gains in bitcoin. You may have thought about investing in this cryptocurrency. If everyone is getting rich off of this investment why not invest and make money too. It seems like a sure thing right? People are dumping all kinds of money into this with the hope of getting rich quick. No one is being informed of the risks involved, and after investing in the dinar I am getting feelings of déjà vu. So allow me to give a brief overview and history of this investment. Let me explain some of the risks involved with this investment.
First it should be noted that unlike the dinar, investors have made money with bitcoin. Investors have also lost money. People have made money by mining bitcoin which is also known as earning. This cryptocurrency has even been used in commerce. Now let’s discuss the history and the risks.

The History


The domain name “bitcoin.org” was registered on August 18th, 2008, In November of that same year a link to a paper titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” was posted to a cryptography mailing list. This paper was authored by Satoshi Nakamoto. The identity of Nakamoto remains unknown but he implemented the bitcoin software as open source code and released it in January of 2009.
A cryptocurrency is designed to work as a medium of exchange. It is a digital asset that uses cryptography to secure its transactions. Cryptography is also used to control the creation of additional units, and to verify the transfer of these digital assets. Cryptocurrencies are mainly classified as a subset of real digital currencies. They can also be classified as a subset of alternative currencies and are often referred to as virtual currencies.
In January 2009, the bitcoin network came into existence after Satoshi Nakamoto mined the first ever block on the chain also known as the genesis block, a reward of 50 bitcoins was included on this genesis block. Embedded in the coinbase of this block was the following text: “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks.” This text has been interpreted as both a timestamp of the genesis date and a cynical comment on the instability caused by fractional-reserve banking. Its launch was close to the 2008 meltdown.
For this reason bitcoin is the first decentralized cryptocurrency. The decentralized control is directly related to the use of bitcoin’s blockchain transaction database in the role of a distributed ledger. Cryptocurrencies use various time stamping schemes to avoid the need for a trusted third-party to timestamp transactions. These timestamps are added to the blockchain ledger. Bitcoin and currencies like it use decentralized control as opposed to centralized electronic money or central banking systems.
One of the first supporters of bitcoin was a guy by the name of Hal Finney. He was the receiver of the first bitcoin transaction. He was also a programmer and a contributor to bitcoin. Finney downloaded the bitcoin software the day it was released and he also received 10 bitcoins from Nakamoto in the world’s first bitcoin transaction. Some websites list other early supporters as well. They include Wei Dai, who was a creator of the bitcoin predecessor b-money, and Nick Szabo. He was the creator of the bitcoin predecessor bit gold.
In the early days, Nakamoto is estimated to have mined approximately 1 million bitcoins. In 2010, Nakamoto handed the network alert key and the control of the Bitcoin Core code repository over to Gavin Andresen. This man became the lead developer at the Bitcoin Foundation. Nakamoto removed himself from any involvement with bitcoin. Gavin Andresen stated that he wanted to decentralize control, saying: “As soon as Satoshi stepped back and threw the project onto my shoulders, one of the first things I did was trying to decentralize that. So, if I get hit by a bus, it would be clear that the project would go on.” This statement allowed speculation and controversy over the future development of bitcoin.
The value of the first bitcoin transactions were negotiated by individuals on the bitcointalk forums with one notable transaction of 10,000 BTC used to indirectly purchase two pizzas delivered by Papa John’s. Since then bitcoin has gained in value and popularity worldwide.
A wallet stores the information necessary to transact bitcoins. While wallets are often described as a place to hold or store a person’s bitcoins, because of the design of the system, bitcoins are inseparable from the blockchain transaction ledger. A better way to describe a wallet is a digital system that will store the digital credentials for your bitcoin holdings. This wallet will allow you to access your bitcoin in order to spend them.
Jordan Kelley is the founder of Robocoin. On February 20th, 2014 Kelly launched the first bitcoin ATM in the United States. The kiosk was installed in Austin, Texas. It is similar to a bank ATM, but it also has scanners installed in order to read government-issued identification. This kiosk will scan a driver’s license or a passport. This is done in order to confirm a users’ identity. By September 2017 1574 bitcoin ATMs have been installed all around the world with an average fee of 9.05% per transaction.
In 2015, the number of merchants accepting bitcoin exceeded 100,000. Instead of 2–3% typically imposed by credit card processors, merchants accepting bitcoins often pay fees between 0% to 2%. Firms that accepted payments in bitcoin as of December 2014 included Dell, Newegg, PayPal, and Microsoft. More local Businesses also started excepting bitcoin.
Since the introduction of bitcoin many other cryptocurrencies have been released. The success of bitcoin has created a whole bunch of bitcoin wanna-bees.  Everyone seems to believe that if Satoshi Nakamoto can do it, they can too. Numerous cryptocurrencies have been created. These are frequently called alt-coins. They serve as a blend of bitcoin alternatives. Today there are hundreds of cryptocurrencies out there and they are all trying to be the next bitcoin.
Most cryptocurrencies are designed to gradually decrease production of currency as more is mined. The purpose of this is to place an ultimate cap on the total amount of currency that will ever be in circulation thus mimicking precious metals. However, people still mine for bitcoin today.

The Risks and Dangers With Cryptocurrencies


Now that you have a brief history on bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies let’s discuss some of the risks and problems associated with them. There is a lot of hype involved and as a result, there is a currency out there for almost everything. There is even a Ron Paul cryptocurrency.
Consider all the variables to make this work. A tremendous amount of effort must be expended to create an alt-coin.  There is the cryptocurrency itself and the electronic wallet that all possessors of a coin must have on whatever electronic device they may be using. This also means that the program must work on a wide range of computers and smart-phone platforms. There is also a marketing expense to get some people to start speculating in it. There is the process of setting up the mining operation so that the virtual miners of the world can start “earning” the coin so that they can sell it on an exchange. There are literally hundreds of these currencies out there and one estimate has the number of alt-coins around 1,100.
These alt-currencies are all attempting to duplicate Bitcoin’s success. The Majority of Bitcoin users are acquiring bitcoins not in order to buy goods and services but to speculate. The main source of bitcoins function and cryptocurrencies like it is that they are seen as an investment.
From our experience as dinar investors we should know that’s a bad investment decision, and it also hurts bitcoin’s prospects. The problem with having the bitcoin economy dominated by speculators is that it gives people an incentive to hoard their bitcoins rather than spend them. This happens to be the opposite of what you need people to do in order to make a currency successful. Successful currencies are used to transact day-to-day business and lubricate commerce. But if your reason for buying bitcoins is hoping that their value will skyrocket, as any investor would, you’re not going to be interested in exchanging those bitcoins for goods, This is because you will lose when the value of bitcoins rises. Instead, you’re going to hold onto them and wait until you can cash out.
Merchants accepting bitcoin ordinarily use the services of bitcoin payment service providers such as BitPay or Coinbase. When a customer pays in bitcoin, the payment service provider accepts the bitcoin on behalf of the merchant and then converts it to the local currency! These bitcoin services will send the obtained amount to the merchant’s bank account. They charge a fee in return for the service. We are led to believe that merchants except bitcoin and then later on use it in other transactions, but this is not the case! Merchants around the world who accept bitcoin will get a government currency immediately deposited in their account during the course of the transaction.
There are pump and dump schemes that artificially drive the price up on cryptocurrencies for a short period of time. Pump and dump schemes are where people colluded to buy a small cryptocurrency at the same time and thus push up the price by artificially inflating demand. Those involved collect a quick profit by selling to new investors who are attracted by the rising price. People involved in this make up large groups that will pour millions of dollars into a cryptocurrency at one time. These people view the currency like a stock. Once new investors are in they sell off the currency for a huge profit. (check the link below)
Pump and Dump Schemes 
The big question then is this. Has bitcoin ever been involved with pump and dump schemes? There are wild price swings in bitcoin’s history. The price of bitcoin has gone through many cycles of appreciation and depreciation. Many people refer to this as bubbles and busts. Here are a few notable examples. In 2011, the value of one bitcoin rapidly rose from $0.30  USD to $32.00 USD and then it fell to $2.00 USD.  In the second half of 2012 , the bitcoin price began to soar once again on April 10th, 2013 it reached a high of $266.00 USD. Then it came crashing down to around $50.00 USD. This event is known as the 2012–13 Cypriot Financial Crisis. On November 29th, 2013, the cost of one bitcoin rose to a peak of $1,242.00 USD. Then in 2014, the price sharply fell creating heavy loses with investors. As of April of that same year the price of bitcoin remained depressed. It was little more than half of 2013 prices. As of August 2014 it was under $600.00 USD
As of 2014, bitcoin has volatility seven times greater than gold, eight times greater than the S&P 500, and 18 times greater than the US dollar. This is the analysis of Mark T. Williams. However, Forbes claims that there are some uses where volatility does not matter, such as online gambling, tipping, and international remittances.
According to an article in The Wall Street Journal, as of April 19th, 2016, bitcoin had been more stable than gold for the preceding 24 days. The article seemed to suggest that its value might be more stable in the future. On March 3rd, 2017, the price of a bitcoin surpassed the market value of an ounce of gold for the first time in history as its price surged to an all-time high of $1,268.00 USD.
Metcalfe’s law states that the value of a telecommunications network is proportional to the square of the number of connected users of the system. A study in Electronic Commerce Research and Applications, going back through the network’s historical data, revealed the value of the bitcoin network as measured by the price of bitcoins, to be roughly proportional to the square of the number of daily unique users participating on the network. In other words, the bitcoin network is well modeled by the Metcalfe’s law.
So what is driving up the cost of bitcoin now? It is really a number of things. First, as the price continues to go up more speculators are jumping on board driving up demand. Second, the same Global Currency Reset nonsense that is used to sell precious metals and foreign currencies from third world countries is being used to hype the bitcoin as a viable investment, and the GCR propaganda is also attracting new investors. Third, Cboe, the options and derivatives exchange, is launching the first-ever regulated futures exchange for bitcoins on Sunday December 10, at 6 p.m. CME Group is scheduled to launch its exchange on Dec. 17, and Nasdaq will start trading the futures in 2018. This has caused wild speculation for the cryptocurrency. The coming futures exchanges has caused the price to skyrocket but some investors jumped out on Friday. (See link below)
Bitcoin Sell Off

Conclusion


Yes there are people making money with bitcoin, but there are many people who had big losses in the past. As of this writing, bitcoin remains super volatile. Many more long term investors may jump ship before the exchanges take place. This investment is an extremely high risk gamble. You need to be careful with the amount you are willing to invest because it must also be an amount you are willing to lose.

LMAO @ Purplez. Bill Hicks was singing in this one. He is extremely talented, otherwise you can't fool millions being Alex Jones so easily. You remember when he was being sued by James Alefantis (Read Rothschild) for spreading the Pizzagate / Comet Ping Pong news like wildfire? AJ suddenly became Bill Hicks and LOL, the Lawsuit made him crap in his pants big time. So, he did a formal apology video and has NOT spoken about Pizza ever again. LMAO. And these jokers, including Sean Hannity (Who looks like a Cloned Jay Leno to my eyes) have over 40 million viewers! Well at least Bill Hicks was FUNNIER than this Ranting fatso who stole red cherries from the Bohemian Grove. You see? Nobody ever asked these simple questions --- "Alex Jones claimed on CAMERA to have crashed the super secret party at Bohemian Grove and this claim he made to CNN's David Guergen. Then, NOBODY questioned him "How the hell did you get inside without an Invitation and never got warned like Tom Cruise's character in Eyes Wide Shut gets warned in the end when he continues to revisit the closed gates of the HOUSE (Rothschild Manor) in Long Island? Ironically, Tom Cruise's name is also BILL in that and instead of Hicks, it was Hartford! Dr. Bill Hartford! HA!"

Imagine all of that and you have a cocktail called Alex-Bill-Hicks-Jones the NUTJOB Cointelpro HACK of the establishment who is a Jesuit Freemasonic Family Guy!

Lucky I'm Australian then!

Mate seriously IF all that is going on or going to go on then it's going to happen anyway. 'They' are already monitoring our phones and internet and xboxes and whatever electronic crap we have. They are already talking about a chip that will be put into us with all our money info, social security numbers etc and without that chip or tattoo or whatever it will be we won't be able to buy food. They are already trialling that over here with half the populace having a massive fit and the other half loving the idea so people are stupid no matter what. If we can make some money out of crypto in the meantime where's the harm in that. And they were already trying to drive us toward a cashless society before crypto ever came about.  If you really are concerned about not being able to buy food I would start stock piling seeds and learning how to grow your own food if I was you! :)

I really hate to put a pin on your balloon but if you are not an elitist and one of "them", you and me and the general public, NEVER sees the "ground floor". 

Think of it like a carcass on the Serengeti. If you're not a lion gorging yourself on the initial "kill" then you are one of hundreds (thousands?) of jackals or vultures - left with a few morsels - fighting amongst your kin for that piece of scrap.

Are you going to be one of those hundreds or thousands who might actually get a morsel? And if so at what cost?

Thanks metech I really appreciate your opinions! Here's my take......If you are starving, a morsel is better than getting nothing at all I reckon?  We aren't going to be sinking any large amounts of money into this, for me it's not only about making a bit of money it's seeing if it works. We spent bloody hundreds on dinar and it didn't work so oh well, I am better off for having invested in that shit because if I hadn't have I would not have met purps, terbs, BS marty or any of the guys here and if it weren't for my interest in crypto I would not have met YOU so it's a win already!

You're welcome NanneeRose.  I have only one wallet; I went with Coinbase.  It is the oldest  (I believe) and they are very cautious, reliable and professional. I feel confident keeping my coins there.  I might just take this opportunity to make a comment on all the LARPing going on to scare people off of cryptos.  Remember when Jamie Diamon (sp?) of JP Morgan said  that he would fire anyone on his staff that he found had bought Bitcoin?  And, then the next day, or so, he was outed buying Bitcoin in France?  That's very telling isn't it? The central banks are freaking out over this, so I see cryptos as a good thing just for THAT reason.  :)

Ok so just wanted to update you all on what I am finding with this whole crypto thing.. 

I invested a very small amount last week on 4 really small coins, like value wise $0.0035 was the lowest one. So I started with my wallet being valued at around $80.  Straight away it started going up to $119 but then yesterday dropped to $104. Today it's currently up to $139.  I have absoutely no clue as to what I am doing nor do I really care, this is an exercise to see if it works and to share what I find in Lehmans terms not investors terms.  So basically I put $80 and in 3 days that value has gone up to $139 WAAAAAAAAY better than the bloody dinar!! :)



It's the simple things, small every day deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.......~Gandalf~

Hey Nannee
Here is an email from someone that I follow from Australia and into crypto... thought I would post it here for you.

The Bitcoin Revolution

hi guys

Uwe and Barbara here, with a different email to what most of you come to expect from us over the years.

2.5 years ago we had one of the most expensive learning experiences in the current system, when we had to hand over our family home to a dozen police and sheriff thugs on the day after years of holding them at bay. Quite a hoot that was, given it was all filmed by the local Wikileaks TV station West TV which surprisingly afterwards "lost" all the footage. Fascinating... 

At the same time, it was a profound experience and growth opportunity we will forever treasure. 

Straight after, both Babs and I realised that our time of "fighting" the system head on was done and we moved on, made peace with the events and refocused.

Life has been an interesting ride since, with countless new people on their awakening path crossing ours, in what often seems incredibly synchronous. Every week we are called upon now to coach and counsel.

Today I'd like to share an opportunity we have taken on board a couple of weeks ago in the Crypto currency space. 

I have knocked back every invitation to look at Bitcoin and other crypto's (some at mere cents!! when suggested to us, now trading in the $100's)  for more than 4 years, and had we invested on any of those early opportunities, ... I don't even want to go there. Who would have known.

There seem to mainly be two really polarised opinions across the board, ranging from "Bitcoin is an AI construct to entirely enslave us"/"Rothchild 2.0 rebirth" to "Best thing since sliced bread".

I am not interested in arguing any of these "opinions", as neither I nor probaly you know the real truth behind it all.

One thing seems for sure. It is here, it is building massive momentum and it seems here to stay.

Besides thousands of businesses that have already moved their models to the blockchain, in the past two weeks, 4 stock and future exchanges have now begun/announced that they will do the same, including the ASX in OZ, as the first in the world to want to use the tech to run its systems.

For me, this seems a no-brainer and whether big players actually control (or try to) things behind the scenes or not, firstly, I can't change that atm, and secondly, I equally can't directly influence the "normal" currency, being the AUD and USD etc.. we still work or run businesses to create more of those too to stay alive, so the point of rejecting crypto for me is moot very quickly.

So, beginning late October, I took a deep dive and began a serious investigation and hands-on learning into crypto currency including placing first small transactions to see how it all works.

During November, i came across a model of "Bitcoin Trading" where I can invest into bitcoin and have it trade to increase its value every day without my direct day-to-day input. 

This looked promising and I cautiously spend some time looking deeper. As it turned out, it is both an investment platform, as well as a network marketing opportunity, should one choose to take part in that side of it (no requirement to do so). Free to join, no fees.

If you have ANY interest in not just sitting on the sidelines of this phenomenon, allow me to share this with you. 

FYI, Barbara and I have 12 years of personal experience in the networking industry from our involvement between 1991 and 2002 in a single company (our first and last since), whereby we went fulltime in 1998 and spent 4 years in Malaysia where we developed a large organisation in the thousands during that time. 

Due to personal reasons we had to come back and leave this behind in 2002, and have since then NEVER taken part in the industry again despite many invitations. We have fond memories of those days (-:

This time, I am taking another plunge and the opportunity seriously, as i have NEVER seen anything like it, with regards to leverage, speed and potential.

My in-depth investigation has satisfied my concerns about legitimacy and sustainability, more in the link below.

EVERYBODY is starting to talk about Bitcoin and crypto, whether we like it or not.

Check it out here and get back to me if you like to talk:

You do realize that the email shown is NOT a critical analysis of cryptos in general but a thinly veiled prospecting message to get Purps to join his MLM opportunity?

You do realize, don't you, that on average 97% of people lose money in MLMs?

What's never asked is why does such a "business" have such a high failure rate?

Maybe the answer is in a book by W. Edwards Deming. Deming was known as “The Father of The Quality Evolution” – a manufacturing and quality control guru who helped Japan rebuild after World War II.

Deming said:
“People want to succeed.  They want to do a good job.  They don’t like to turn out lousy work.  If your people are consistently failing, it’s not their fault – it’s your system’s fault.”

What does that say about MLMs as a "system" - which is part of the allure?

And the 3%, on average, who don't lose money have a USP, marketing skills, and tremendous sales and persuasion talents. Do you?
