Bitcoin: A Tower of Monetary Babel / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Antonius_Aquinas

The promoters of crypto currencies have gushingly touted them as the mechanism by which the present central banking cabal and the system of nation states which derive much of their power from will be brought down and replaced by digital money. Despite their meteoric rise as speculative “assets,” there are fundamental economic reasons why they will never act as a general medium of exchange despite the wild enthusiasm for them by the crypto-currency cultists.

How Investors Can Play The Bitcoin Boom / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: OilPrice_Com

Many investors, waiting for the first Bitcoin or Ethereum ETF to launch, are sadly missing out on once-in-a-lifetime profits. Bitcoin turned a $100-investment into $75 million in 7 years, and it’s risen from $1,000 per coin to over $4,800 just this year. Ethereum is up over two years, turning a $100 investment in to $94,000.

Finally, investors don’t have to miss out on these potential profits. Now there’s a unique investment opportunity to add these cryptocurrencies and other new blockchain technologies to any brokerage accounts, IRA or 401k ... today.

Wikileaks Mocking US Government Over Bitcoin Shows Why There Is No Stopping Bitcoin / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

As I write, bitcoin is currently yet again at an all-time high, now over $5,800 with a $97 billion market cap.

And the cryptocurrency space as a sector is on the cusp of an all-time high as well, sitting at $177 billion, just shy of the $178 billion high hit six weeks ago.

Bitcoin Powers Through To New Highs Near $6,000 While Jamie Demon Talks Trash / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

The Berwick Champagne curse has been broken.

Every time in the past I posted a photo of me with a champagne bottle after bitcoin had hit a new all-time high, it “crashed”. Or, at least it went down quite a bit before quickly retaking new highs.

Not this time, though! Shortly after posting that bitcoin had surged through $5,000 yesterday it continued on to hit a high over $5,700.

Bitcoin is Not New and Improved Money / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Michael_Pento

Cryptocurrencies are being billed as a new and improved form of money that has been offered to us courtesy of technological evolution. There is a big problem with this conclusion. That is, digital money is not money at all. And proving this truth serves to underscore why gold has been utilized as the best form of money for thousands of years.

In the 2013 film titled “Her,” lonely Theodore, played by Joaquin Phoenix, falls in love with Samantha, an operating system. Despite Samantha’s lack of physical presence, the two have a somewhat normal relationship that includes vacations, socializing with friends, fights and even jealousy. But just as the audience starts buying into this unconventional pairing the plug is pulled on Samantha, and she disappears into a cyberspace vortex; leaving poor and lonely Theodore heartbroken.

Is Bitcoin For Real or Fool’s Gold? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Rodney_Johnson

How many currencies do you carry in your wallet?

OK, I’m showing my age. I actually have a wallet. And I carry it. Mostly.

Inside, you’ll find a couple of credit cards, an odd receipt or two, and greenbacks. I live in the U.S., so I use dollars.

But I also carry my smartphone, and I use Apple Pay wherever possible. I’m not geeking out, I just try to rack up points on my cashback credit card, and tapping my smartphone is a lot easier than dragging out my credit card and dealing with finicky swipe readers.

Bitcoin after Extreme Volume / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Bitcoin is on the Bloomberg Markets main page again. This is yet another sign of the currency becoming yet another asset class. In the article, we read:

Bitcoin is looking increasingly likely to splinter off again in November, creating a third version of the world’s largest cryptocurrency as miners and developers pursue separate visions to scale its rapidly growing marketplace.

Major industry players, including the bitcoin investor Roger Ver known as “Bitcoin Jesus” for proselytizing on behalf of the digital currency, say consensus between opposing camps looked increasingly unlikely. That opinion was echoed by some of the biggest mining pool operators and also programmers -- known as “Core” developers -- who were instrumental to developing the infrastructure of the original bitcoin network.

Bitcoin Drops After China Ban / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Bitcoin is now present in mainstream media. On the Bloomberg Markets website, we read:

Bitcoin fell for a fifth day, the longest losing streak in more than a year, after one of China’s largest online exchanges said it would stop handling trades by the end of the month amid a government crackdown on cryptocurrencies.

BTC China will immediately stop accepting new account registrations on its BTCChina Exchange, Chief Executive Bobby Lee said Thursday in a tweet. The decision was made after “carefully considering” the Sept. 4 announcement by Chinese regulators that outlawed initial coin offerings, he said.

Cryptocurrencies Hit All-Time Highs, Gold Spikes Higher As Investors Flee The Stock Market / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Bank of America Merrill Lynch reported this week that investors had pulled $30 billion from US stock funds over the last ten weeks. And, the latest week of outflows marks the 10th straight week of withdrawals, the longest in more than a decade.

Investors pulling $30 billion from the stock market in the last ten weeks is very interesting as the value of all cryptocurrencies has simultaneously surged by $47 billion in the last ten weeks.

Bitcoin Price Stalls / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

The fact that Bitcoin has recently hit an all-time high has already fueled wild speculation in the market and we are now seeing increased interest in the currency. The mainstream media are now full of articles  on the meteoric rise of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and the prospects of cryptocurrencies. In an article on Bloomberg, we read:

It seems like everyone is coming up with a price forecast these days, with some of the biggest banks including Goldman Sachs Group Inc. jumping into the action, while speculators to long-time investors are also making their bets.

The consensus is that the biggest cryptocurrency will face some resistance around $4,500 to $4,800 and correct, to then continue rallying. How high? Pantera Capital Management’s Paul Veradittakit, Tom Lee at Fundstrat Global Advisors and John Spallanzani at GFI Group Inc. see it going to $6,000 by year-end, while Ronnie Moas at Standpoint Research says it will keep rising to $7,500 in 2018.

Bitcoin in an Illusionary Age / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Antonius_Aquinas

It is altogether fitting that crypto currencies, in particular Bitcoin, have witnessed a meteoric rise in this illusionary age. Not only has their monetary value gone to dizzying heights, but they are now being touted as the destroyer of the current, crumbling monetary order and the next paradigm upon which a new money and banking system will emerge.

Bitcoin & Bitcoin Cash Smash Through $5,000! / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Now, I realize I can’t do this forever. I can’t continue for years to combine the value of both Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash and quote it as a “total value” of bitcoin.

But, considering that it was just 19 days ago that every person in the world who owned bitcoin, if they stored it correctly, also became a new owner of an equal amount of Bitcoin Cash… it is still a very reasonable thing to take note of the two currencies combined price as being the value that the grand majority of bitcoin holders currently hold… or “HODL”, to talk more like the cool kids.
