Regarding ongoing world domination planning by the Rothschild Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland see Georgetown University professor Carrol Quigley's book, Tragedy and Hope, 1966: https://www.amazon.com/Tragedy-Hope-History-World-Time/dp/094500110X. Quote: "The Power of financial capitalism had [a] far reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalistic fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks, which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence co-operative politicians by subsequent rewards in the business world." The BIS, its directors and employees (past and present) can do virtually anything and everything they want, with complete secrecy, immunity and with no one looking over their shoulders. The BIS is a Rothschild business operation. See: http://www.thebernician.net/rothschild-the-hidden-sovereign-power-behind-bis/. It is the central bank of the world's central banks, the "Devil's Tower". See: "Ex-Nazi Bank Now the World's Central Bank": https://www.bilderberg.org/bis.htm. Due to Rothschild financing of Hitler, Switzerland was not neutral in WW2. Therefore, Basel was bombed by American bomber aircraft during WW2. GENERAL Eisenhower's failure to cut out all that cancer now threatens all of humanity. It has metastasized into NATO. See: https://csglobe.com/hitler-financed-federal-reserve-bank-england/, also: http://humansarefree.com/2014/10/exposing-shadow-forces-behind-nwo.html.

Instead of going to jail, Grandpa Bush became a U.S. Senator, dictating U.S. federal law and foreign policy to PRESIDENT Eisenhower. Granddaddy Bush's grandson, former U.S. President George W. Bush: “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” The BIS meets on alternate Sundays on the 18th floor. Apparently they are so afraid of being caught they installed three (3) separate fire prevention sprinkler systems. The bankster and co-founder of the unconstitutional Rothschild "U.S. Federal" Reserve Bank, Rothschild agent Paul Warburg, addressed the U.S. Senate on February 17, 1950: "We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent." Henry Kissinger: “Yes, there will be a New World Order, and it will force the United States to change it's perceptions.” See also: https://www.amazon.com/Collusion-Central-Bankers-Rigged-World/dp/1568585624. Also: "These wars are all about the banking. And millions of innocent people are killed in them." See: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/425751-us-war-military-invade/. Buy bitcoin to stop supporting the war-dollar.
With trillions of our dollars at the bankster’s disposal, created out of thin air any time they want, it is easy for them to pit the various peoples of the world against each other, divide and conquer. The Illuminati take pride in announcing their intentions, like the "Project for a New American Century" report (Kristol, Kagan, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Rumsfeld, et. al.) that stated the need for a "New American Pearl Harbor" type of attack to scare Americans into supporting yet another war. Since the 9/11 Illuminati-manufactured ‘War on Terror,’ a minimum of 37 million people have been displaced, facilitating massive human trafficking and illegal human organ harvesting operations. Caitlin Johnstone: "We are ruled by monsters." See; https://www.rt.com/op-ed/500281-war-terror-37-million-displaced/. “Tens of millions of people displaced by the ‘War On Terror’, the greatest scam ever invented.” See: https://caitlinjohnstone.com/. Also: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/507979-caitlin-johnstone-oligarchic-imperialism-religion/. Constant war will reduce the earth’s population by 93%; or at least by 50% according to Kissinger. Conspiring to wage wars of conquest, including cyberwar, and routine acts of war, are war crimes, and federal hate crimes: racketeering. Also, wars = military hardware, oil, and drug profits = fewer people. In 2007 General Wesley Clark revealed on U.S. television "Democracy Now" a Department of Defense policy: “This is a memo that describes how we’re going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.” One Rothschild Ordered Theft (ROT) to nullify the Constitution which states only Congress can declare war (after discussing it with us?). Afghanistan remains under U.S. occupation to protect the poppy fields from eradication, (again), by the religious Taliban; and thereby reinstating the Rothschild Drug Cartels (RDC) estimated profits of $800 billion per year, mostly laundered by U.S. and European banks. One U.S. State Department insider stated 85% of the opium (the heroin precursor) leaves Afghanistan on U.S. aircraft. Some 'retired' Air Force pilots do not ask questions about the cargo, and get paid in cash. See: https://www.globalresearch.ca/the-spoils-of-war-afghanistan-s-multibillion-dollar-heroin-trade/91, and: https://truedemocracyparty.net/2012/05/opium-war-reason-afghan-war-cia-killing-soldiers/. Likewise, the Rothschilds' British and American troops won the Chinese "Boxer Rebellion" (Opium Wars),1839 - 1842 and 1856 - 1860. Brits got control over eight Chinese ports (including ownership of Hong Kong) and reinstated rights to get Chinese citizens addicted to opium imports from the British East India Company. See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbHAWNQRV70. American Samuel Russell imported more opium to China from Turkey, see: http://www.voxfux.com/features/scull_bones_opium.html. Under Rothschild leadership, Russell founded Illuminati chapter #322 as Yale University's "Skull and Bones" fraternity. That fraternity was previously named the Brotherhood of Death, and courtesy of grave robber Prescott Bush it possesses the actual skull and bones of Geronimo. It trains bankster warmonger drug pushers (BWDP). The grandfathers of former President Franklin Roosevelt and former Secretary of State John (Skull and Bones) Kerry were also big in ‘the China trade’. Opium addiction in China financed the original funding of Columbia, Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. (Yale claims no knowledge of 'Bonesman' activities that have helped amass Yale's $30 billion endowment). The Vietnam War, same thing, more filthy karma. It was not about allies, containing communism, or saving face. (Rothschilds secretly build up communism, then publicly wage war against it, gaining ever-more 'New World Order' dominion in that process, ultimately communism for everyone but Rothschild fascists). The Vietnam War was about predatory capitalism bankster war profits, including heroin profits from the CIA (mostly Skull & Bones leadership) 'Air America' Golden Triangle (Thailand, Laos, Myanmar) operations. Accompanied by the usual jailing of anyone (e.g. 'draft dodgers') who questioned the necessity of the slaughter "for God and country." (See also, the movie "Kill The Messenger", trailer: https://youtu.be/VW4XO-52ubE). The Kennedy executions enabled the Vietnam War, so Rothschilds provided the usurious financing of the trillion dollar disaster. Four million Asians and 58,000 U.S. soldiers dead, another 100,000 U.S. soldiers have since committed suicide, 500,000 suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). All for even more wealth and power for Rothschild and their minions so they can do the same, ongoing, to every generation. Roth schild means red shield, covered with the blood of others. Rothschild wars remain living proof of the extent and intensity of the ignorance and cowardice we face. Cheap heroin for U.S. soldiers in Vietnam (and later, Afghanistan) successfully created a huge American heroin market. Some heroin was shipped to the U.S. in hidden false-bottom compartments of caskets of deceased American soldiers, even inside their bodies; what is wrong with that picture? The Rothschild Controlled Substances Act of 1970 “War on Drugs” is a smokescreen to protect bankster drug cartel profits, and jail minorities. Rothschilds tolerate no competition with their industries, whether war, or drugs that they have ordered categorized as legal or illegal. Rothschild Big Pharma's and Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) ensures doctors can prescribe unlimited amounts of oxycodone opiates, but restricts the antidote Suboxone treatments. When a city has enough oxycodone addicts, partly due to predatory actions of minions like Purdue Pharma and McKinsey, the Rothschild Drugs Cartels (RDC) via Mexican or Mafia subsidiary cartels open a 'black tar' heroin "store". End of U.S. opiate addiction mystery, but cowards play dumb. See: “Chasing Heroin: Frontline", PBS, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bczHLJ6ClbQ. The biblical 'holy anointing oil' active ingredient, in Hebrew: 'kanehbos', from the ancient Scythian, and Greek: 'cannabis' (Indian hemp) is described in Exodus 30:26, the only medically active ingredient being cannabis. In the New Testament, it was the healing "oil of gladness." See: http://www.herbmuseum.ca/content/keneh-bosem-exodus-3023. It is too competitive with Rothschild controlled Big Pharma and other cartel drugs, therefore cannabis is illegal: no home growing allowed, ignoring ancient and modern medical science. See: https://csglobe.com/medical-marijuana-research-blocked-scientists-say/. Also: https://www.rt.com/news/514596-cbd-effective-covid-support-treatment/. Rothschild's Kissinger faked a peace treaty with North Vietnam, thereby winning the Nobel Peace Prize (a big gold coin and $400,000 equivalent in today's money), while keeping the war profits and opium/heroin flowing, sufficiently established to be ongoing even after military defeat. See: https://truthout.org/articles/millions-died-because-kissinger-prolonged-the-vietnam-war-for-years-after-betraying-peace-treaty. Fighting spirit and technology win wars, so all nations are pressed to pursue the materialism of predatory capitalism to afford the global arms race in an attempt to survive. As usual, central banksters create the problems then provide the (temporary) solutions, thus enjoying multiple streams of profits. Blood money is bank-laundered and reinvested in more drugs, real estate, stocks, bonds, derivatives, mainstream media buyout concentration and other corporate monopolies, bribes and assassinations, satanic new weaponry, new wars and war reconstruction, human and human organ trafficking, genocide for profit; an elitist world of their own. Psychopaths hire psychopaths, strength in numbers, systematically corrupting civilization. The New World Order = ”The Great Reset” by the same psychopathic megalomaniacs. See: https://www.counterpunch.org/2003/01/13/monsters-inc-the-pentagon-s-plan-to-create-super-warriors/. Regarding the ONGOING Imperial/Rothschild/Britain theft of $45 trillion from India, see the "Empires of Dirt" documentary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_jGPf764d0. The British Imperial parasite gives up partial political control of colonies only after securing parasitic financial control.
When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.
Kissinger: "Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated (author's emphasis), that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government." [This Kissinger quote was secretly tape recorded courtesy of a Swiss delegate to that May 21, 1992 secret Bilderberg meeting in Evian, France.; the international version of the U.S. Bohemian Grove elite Illuminati meetup.] Will U.S. Air Force/"Space Force" drone holograms-in-the-sky and satellite “UFOs” scare the children into persuading their parents to give up the Constitution? And pay ever more war-dollar taxes to protect them from the “aliens,” as well as to conquer other nations and steal their assets to support the war-dollar? As in karma: as we sow, so shall we reap? Not foreign farmers stealing our nuclear missiles to kill us, but rather botched response to plague? See: @caitoz: https://twitter.com/caitoz/status/1350951733682462734.

Promulgated: The first Gulf war was, at least officially, due to Iraq having weapons of mass destruction (although nothing compared to the U.S.). (See also: http://www.enduringamerica.com/may-2009/2009/5/27/george-w-bush-iraq-was-a-biblical-war-against-gog-and-magog.html.) Actually, as mentioned above, those weapons were previously provided to Iraq by the U.S., for use against Iran; the leftover weapons were destroyed. At one point in the Gulf War it was considered to project in the sky an angry Allah who would command the Iraquis to stop fighting and surrender. How's that for "promulgated"? Hollywood couldn't even dream this up for Los Angeles. In 2012 a U.S. drone base in Africa projected a floating city to Nigerian villagers, who knew it was a sign from God. No, it was Project Blue Beam's promulgated "Enemy Perception Management." Re-focused for a Blue-Beam-to-Brain microwave death ray? Does testing of it 'knock people out'? Half the time despite maximum medical testing, no idea why the "fainting or brain issues?" Used against us even while driving a car or flying a plane'?

"Illumination” requires more than hearing mundane, lame 'philosophy' to justify gross materialism and sacrificing millions of people to the 'god Molech'. See that annual Bohemian Grove “Cremation of Care” ritual regarding ancient child sacrifice by fire. Wikipedia: “Molech is the biblical name of a Canaanite god associated with child sacrifice, through fire or war.” Must aspiring U.S. Presidents so demonstrate their willingness to firebomb children? See that ritual attended by nearly all U.S. Republican Presidents since 1932: https://www.operationreachthelost.com/worshipping-molech-child-sacrifice-bohemian-grove/. Also: https://thenewamerican.com/bohemian-grove-where-the-elite-meet-to-eat-and-conspire/. Illuminati power elites have a psychopathic system whereby conscience is forbidden, replaced by NON-caring about others. David Rockefeller: "Who cares about them?" (We the People). See former U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon at a Bohemian Grove meeting, with their Kissinger and Bush buddies. Why did they wear black robes and Molech charms and circle a bone-fire (bonfire)? Are they attempting Molech possession to enable victory in their wars, pleasing to Molech? Haven't Rothschild, Kissinger, and other world leaders read the Old Testament? Leviticus 18:21 "And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech." Molech is not particular whose children are burned; "as you sew so shall you reap?" See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerial_bombing_of_cities, and: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firebombing. The Dresden firebombing war crime of “gratuitous sadism” left 600,000 dead, a portion of the 15 million German civilians killed. The Tokyo firebombing, "... one of the most ruthless and barbaric killings of noncombatants in all history". No surprise, the nuclear bomb idea originated at a Bohemian Grove meeting. [Regarding the use, misuse, and weaponization of the various forms of nuclear technology, see the whistleblower website: http://www.leurenmoret.info. For more privacy, use the Opera browser with VPN on]. Did Molech order the Illuminati's Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombings? Those war crimes were not needed to win the already-won war with Japan during WWII, but rather their purpose was to terrorize the rest of the world into submission. What do they want us to think, that we should submit to Molech? If that is what they believe, why don't they state that in high school textbooks, given their control of the content? History is always written by the victors. Will the Illuminati require students to pledge allegiance to the American flag: “ … one nation, under Molech, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." (?) With a parasitic worm as big as Rothschild inside, Uncle Sam has to wage FOREIGN wars to keep it fed, or else ... ? @caitoz: “The US empire has two faces: the plastic smiling one based in Hollywood, and the blood-spattered one based in DC, Arlington and Langley. If you live in wealthy western nations you're presented with the former. If you live in the Middle East or the Global South you get the latter.” "The empire needs both faces. Without the murder face, it could not exist as an empire. Without the grinning face, the public would never consent to the murder face."

Bitcoin exchanges and wallets do not necessarily operate in all U.S. states. Also, when considering doing business with a bitcoin exchange, attempt estimation of how long it will take to buy the bitcoins and what price you might get under current market conditions, and how long it takes to get your bitcoins or cash transferred to another place, and the cost. For example, see one exchange's fees: https://www.bitstamp.net/fee_schedule/.
Unemployed or underemployed people can make references to many of these bitcoin attributes, and other prospective benefits mentioned herein, without specifying bitcoin, as part of their informative email to potential bitcoin adult buyers. [Polls vary from 95% to 71% of bitcoin owners are male, mostly under age 40, and computer savvy. However, if indeed less that 5% of the bitcoin industry is comprised of women, and "He who owns the bitcoins makes the rules," what are the implications? See also: “How Women Could Send Bitcoin to the Moon," http://fortune.com/2018/04/27/bitcoin-price-cryptocurrency-women-meltem-demirors/. Also: https://news.bitcoin.com/womens-interest-in-crypto-trading-has-doubled-uk-exchange-reveals/.] Demirors: “It starts with people. then institutions. then corporations. then a nation state. and ultimately, bitcoin will eat the world.” Given that the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the SEC considers BTC a commodity, it would be akin to a person making a recommendation that the relative or friend buy a bushel of corn to benefit from any potential profit, such as during a famine. The email would ask, if the sender revealed the actual underlying vehicle (BTC) idea to the potential BTC buyer would that person email back a percentage of any new high gross profits to the email sender, for as long as the buyer owns the vehicle? If the prospective BTC buyer agreed to comply with this 'gifting back' scenario, in order to know the identity of the actual underlying instrument (BTC), the sender could then email this website address: https://federalbitcoininvestment.com, or https://bitcoinfun.net, to the prospective BTC buyer. OR, if the person is clever enough, just tell them to buy bitcoin. More than that, help the buyer, walking them through the purchase, and give ongoing bitcoin education in order to earn ANY gift in return. If subsequently persuaded to buy bitcoins, would the BTC adult buyer GIFT the BTC educator a modest percentage, even 1%, of the total gross new high profits to the educator's (FBI Wealth Agent, for example) bitcoin address, monthly or quarterly? Setting aside the issue of 'legally enforceable contract,' maybe the honor system itself would work for some people (and thereby avoid complications.) If a relative or friend fails to pay, at least they own bitcoin! Registered Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) routinely charge 1% of assets under management, and 15% of new high profits, but never come anywhere near to benefitting their clients as much as bitcoiners might benefit their relatives and friends (maximum 30 without CTA license). IRS regulations exempt from income tax a maximum gift of $15,000 per year. https://news.bitcoin.com/gifting-bitcoin-is-one-way-a-person-can-avoid-paying-crypto-taxes/

Max Keiser of RT's Keiser Report offers a different view on the subject. "The problem describing bitcoin is twofold. First, you have to throw out what you think you know about money. Second, you have to become moderately fluent in a few technologies. The beauty of bitcoin is that as the price of bitcoin rises, more people are incentivized to tackle the learning curve out of self-interest. When the price was $3 - when Keiser Report first covered bitcoin - you could afford to ignore it. But as price heads to $5,000 and higher, you can't afford to ignore the technology and accept the fact that your preconceptions about money are probably wrong," https://www.rt.com/business/399761-bitcoin-overhyped-dangerous/?utm_source=spotim&utm_medium=spotim_recirculation&spotim_referrer=recirculation

"Hebrew University of Jerusalem Professor Gershom Scholem called Jacob Frank, 'one of the most frightening phenomena in the whole of Jewish history'. Jacob Frank would eventually enter into an alliance formed by Adam Weishaupt and Meyer Amshel Rothschild called the Order of the Illuminati. The objectives of this organization was to undermine the world's religions and power structures, in an effort to usher in a utopian era of global communism, which they would covertly rule by their hidden hand: the New World Order. Using secret societies, such as the Freemasons, their agenda has played itself out over the centuries, staying true to the script. The Illuminati handle opposition by a near total control of the world's media, academic opinion leaders, politicians and financiers.

“After Frank, the godly reign apparently passed to the Rothschilds.” See: http://stateofthenation.co/?p=958. Their "right hand man" remains Henry Kissinger. In London in 1982 Kissinger publicly bragged about acting as an agent of British foreign-policy influence, behind the backs of two U.S. Presidents, while he was serving as the U.S. National Security Adviser and U.S. Secretary of State. Also: (Former President Franklin) "Roosevelt saw Great Britain and its imperial system as a far greater adversary to the United States than Soviet Russia.” See: https://archive.schillerinstitute.com/fid_97-01/002-3_monnet.htm. No surprise, Jacob Rothschild's brother, Evelyn Rothschild, the world's richest man (?), is the financial advisor to the Queen of England, the worlds largest landowner. He appears very confident that he controls the U.S. Senate. See: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2y9awz.

In a CNBC interview bitcoin venture capitalist Lou Kerner stated Bitcoin will be like Amazon.com which during the dot.com boom/bust was down in price by 95% for two years. Kerner says that Bitcoin is the greatest store of value ever created, and will surpass gold. See: https://www.cnbc.com/video/2018/11/21/kerner-bitcoin-is-the-greatest-stored-value-ever-created.html.
By automatically reducing in half the financial compensation for 'mining' new bitcoins, this 'halving' effect is to emphasize the scarcity factor, with a tendency to thereby assist increasing the price. Per bitcoin’s scarcity design, the inflation minimization now has 1800 bitcoins mined daily, 12.5 bitcoins per 10 minutes, reduced to only 900 bitcoins created daily (6.25 every ten minutes) after the halving event in May 2020. Max Keiser: “Bitcoin is harder money than gold, and it gets harder every ten minutes.”“Rekt Capital identifies that Bitcoin price rose over 13,000 percent following the first halving and 12,000 percent after the second. If Bitcoin was to rally by similar percentages from its current ~$10,000 price point, the eventual top may be between $385,000 and $425,000.” –newsbtc.com.
Jake Chervinsky @jchervinsky (Twitter.com) is one of the primary authors of the New York state money transmitter law vis-a-vis bitcoin, the (onerous for business startups) "bitlicense." Regarding bitcoin and the banker's comparison to the Dutch tulip speculation craze/price crash in 1637 boom/bust, Chervinsky states: "Okay, let's compare bitcoin & tulips: Bitcoin is software enabling permissionless, trustless, censorship-resistant value transfer on a global scale. It has the qualities of great money: durable, portable, fungible, divisible & scarce. Tulips, on the other hand, are flowers."
One of the original bitcoin co-developers is Nick Szabo, who speaks of banks trying to imitate bitcoin: "JPM Coin and its near-twin the Petro lack the predominant source of value that distinguishes cryptocurrencies from bank money: trust minimization." "Bitcoin could survive a nuclear war." See also

DEBT IMPLOSION: See: "Economic recovery talk is smoke & mirrors as corporate debt bubble ready to bust ."– Richard Wolff, Published time: 16 Mar, 2019: https://www.rt.com/business/454018-debt-bubble-wolff-sanchez/. "Low interest rates allowed companies to borrow money at no cost. But instead of increasing productivity, the financing was used to drive up the cost of shares, setting the stage for imminent collapse." Prof. Richard Wolff told RT.
"US private corporate debt stands at a whopping $9 trillion, and that spells major trouble for the overheated economy as soon as recession sets in." Wolff said that unprecedentedly low interest rates are a scourge, not a blessing, for the US economy, as they only create the appearance of recovery, rather than contributing to growth in productivity.
“It’s a very dangerous place we’ve come to and that’s why all this talk of ‘recovery, recovery’ hides the fact that the things we did to look like we were recovering created the greater vulnerability than what we had in the first place.” Travis Kling, the chief investment manager of Ikigai Asset Management, agrees: "The trend in Bitcoin’s price flipped from bear to bull once the Fed said it would ease-off tightening and engage in permanent money printing ('Quantitative Easing’). This is wealth confiscation by the bank cartels to keep their insolvent balance sheets from imploding. The impact on Bitcoin and Gold will be moving to new ATH (all-time high) as safe-haven money pours in." See: https://bitcoinist.com/bitcoin-haven-fund-manager-kling/.

Since its creation in 1913, the FED has inflated the US dollar by 2,000%. Anthony Pompliano: [@APompliano] : "REMINDER: When central banks cut rates and print more money, they are trying to make the rich richer by inflating asset prices. This literally steals wealth from those who are not rich and don’t own real assets." "When you’re worried about your assets being seized or becoming inaccessible to you, Bitcoin’s non-seizability becomes very attractive. This aspect of Bitcoin just became important for 1+ billion people in India & Hong Kong."

PEACE? Spend Rothschild U.S. war-dollars to buy bitcoin. “The refusal of King George III to allow the American colonies to operate an honest money system which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators was probably the prime cause of the revolution.” "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." -- Benjamin Franklin, American Founding Father. When America stopped using usurious Rothschild/Bank of England money printing services (Bank of the U.S.) in 1811, the bankster warmonger Rothschild ordered the War of 1812 against America, stating: "Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!" Financially, Rothschild succeeded. The British Prime Minister, Perceval, opposed that war, so he was shot dead in public. Former U.S. President Andrew Jackson helped "win" that war (America sued for peace upon accepting, ongoing, to this day, Rothschild financial rule). Jackson was nearly shot dead in public (the pistols mis-fired due to moisture) for opposing the ongoing Rothschild banker monopoly on issuing American money. Jackson lived, then said to his erstwhile assassins: "You are a den of vipers. I intend to rout you out and by the Eternal God I will rout you out. If the people only understood the rank injustice of our money and banking system, there would be a revolution before morning." However, he failed in his vow to expunge the banksters. The next U.S. President shot dead in public was Abraham Lincoln: “The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power of consumers. The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it is the government’s greatest creative opportunity. The financing of all public enterprise, and the conduct of the treasury will become matters of practical administration. Money will cease to be master and will then become servant of humanity.” The next U.S. President shot dead in public was James Garfield, after publicly stating: "Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce... when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." The next U.S. President shot dead in public was William McKinley, soon after speaking out against the private central bankers issuing public American money. See: https://generalfraud.blogspot.com/2015/06/eight-presidents-who-opposed-central.html. By 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt saw a pattern: "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson." See: "Prescott Bush's 1933 fascist coup attempt in the US - Business Coup stopped by Smedley Butler," https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sp4h39qJKqU. The next President shot dead in public was John F. Kennedy. He knew of the danger, but previous illness-related 'out-of-body experiences' minimized his fear of death (it works). See his speech against the New-World-Order-Secret-Societies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-AZV3qnwkA. See his book Profiles in Courage, https://www.amazon.com/Profiles-Courage-John-F-Kennedy/dp/B00ZAKA8XY. Kennedy's Executive Order 11110, (Americans issuing their own silver-backed dollars) was designed to put the private Rothschild "U.S. Federal" Reserve Bank out of business. He also opposed the Vietnam War. As did his brother and presidential candidate Robert Kennedy, who also said said he would avenge his brother John. As you would expect, he was also shot dead in public. John Kennedy Jr. (whose political magazine was named "GEORGE"), wanted to avenge his father and uncle, but his plane, somehow, suddenly went into a dive, killing all aboard. Just like U.S. Democratic Senator Paul Wellstone's plane. Wellstone, Ph.D. in political science, opposed the entire Bush New World Order agenda, threatened Republican control of the Senate, and was the last holdout vote against a Homeland Security Department. His death scared another Democratic Senator so bad they considered becoming a Republican. See: http://www.oilempire.us/wellstone.html.

In 1878 the leader of Germany, Otto Von Bismarck, stated: "The death of Lincoln was a disaster for Christendom. There was no man in the United States great enough to wear his boots and the bankers went anew to grab the riches. I fear that foreign bankers with their craftiness and tortuous tricks will entirely control the exuberant riches of America and use it to systematically corrupt civilization." General Butler (the most decorated soldier): “WAR is a racket..It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious .. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.” "There are only two things we should fight and die for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights." Download: https://www.ratical.org/ratville/CAH/warisaracket.pdf.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was the inspiration for the movie about a psychopath, a former Nazi adviser to Hitler, "Dr. Strangelove," who subsequently became a war adviser to the U.S. President. Actual Henry Kissinger quotes: “Depopulation should be the highest priority of foreign policy towards the third world, because the US economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less developed countries”. “World population needs to be decreased by 50%”. “It is an act of insanity and national humiliation to have a law prohibiting the President from ordering assassination.” “The elderly are useless eaters.” [Now, Genetically Modified Organisms, GMO foods, are designed to kill us by weakening our immune systems, starting with the elderly and the very young. See W. Engdahl's book Seeds of Destruction discussion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QI8Kb1bCH74]. Also: https://www.amazon.com/Altered-Genes-Twisted-Truth-Systematically/dp/1511311487 by Steven M. Druker. Kissinger: "Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world." See: "Kissinger’s 1974 Plan for Food Control Genocide," "On Dec. 10, 1974, the U.S. National Security Council under Henry Kissinger completed a classified 200-page study, 'National Security Study Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests.'" (Kissinger's official covert U.S. policy, the targeted de-population countries: India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, the Philippines, Thailand, Egypt, Turkey, Ethiopia, and Colombia.) "In 1974, Kissinger publicly talked of food security, while privately he worked to use food control as a weapon against a target list of nations." See: https://www.scribd.com/document/2300428/Who-is-Responsible-for-the-World-Food-Shortage. Is this why banksters favor global warming: "Climate change is roasting the Himalaya region, threatening millions." See: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/2019/02/himalaya-mountain-climate-change-report/.
A VERY bad idea for a false flag operation, the "Mission: Impossible--Fallout" movie? Another Illuminati statement of their intentions? Extort India into a war alliance against Russia and China? See: “Operation Hollywood: How the Pentagon Shapes and Censors the Movies,” https://www.amazon.com/Operation-Hollywood-Pentagon-Shapes-Censors/dp/1591021820, and: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/509997-pentagon-hollywood-christmas-movies/). Also: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/514727-lights-camera-cancelled-movies/.
More Kissinger quotes: "The illegal we do immediately, the unconstitutional takes a little longer." "The emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy. And if they put Jews into gas chambers in the Soviet Union, it is not an American concern." (See Sabbatean Frankist Illuminati "Jews" behind Holocaust allegation, below). "O how I have dreamed of this delightful moment...We shouldn’t be afraid of atomic bombs and missiles. No matter what kind of war breaks out—conventional or thermonuclear—we’ll win." "War is war. The years will pass, and we’ll get to work producing more babies than ever before." "The United States is baiting China and Russia ... The coming war will be so severe that only one superpower can win, and that’s us folks.” “Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” Kissinger forgets to mention the Russians have beaten us at the arms race the U.S./NATO started and routinely perpetuates, and now the Russians have unstoppable, radar-evading nuclear missiles, drones, and torpedoes; tactical superiority over the U.S. Also the Chinese? See: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/8933644/leaked-china-secret-hypersonic-nuke/. "In simulated World War III scenarios the U.S. continues to lose against Russia and China," https://www.theburningplatform.com/2019/03/11/u-s-gets-its-ass-handed-to-it-in-world-war-iii-simulation-rand/.

Just one 4 megaton nuclear bomb could incinerate everything within a 600 square mile radius (pleasing to the Illuminati god Molech, aka Moloch). In a nuclear war, within two weeks the “carbon cloud” would block all sunlight, for ten years. The freezing earth would have no food grown, and everyone would soon die. Assume that Kissinger is a Rothschild agent? War criminal? Butcher of S.E. Asia? The Cambodia civil war genocide? See: https://www.rt.com/op-ed/499705-khmer-rouge-uk-us-duch-comrade/. The East Timor genocide made it easy to steal their oil. And dictator coups that supported slaughter of hundreds of thousands of civilians in Central and South America, not to mention Bangladesh? See: "Kissinger Confronted on War Crimes," minute 16:00 into the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVQLr9n9h9s. Also, see: "Henry Kissinger's Legacy of War Crimes Exposed by Secret Yale Visit," on YouTube: "Why Kissinger Should Be Tried in the Hague," https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QEpfVEaLAmA. The Jakarta Method book by Vincent Bevins details the standardized imperialist genocide program that continues to kill millions of innocent people around the world, see: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-jakarta-method-vincent-bevins/1133331861. In spite of neutrality during the Vietnam War, Rothschild's and Kissinger's lackey, former U.S. President Richard Nixon, ordered two hundred million tons of bombs dropped on Laos, more bombing than during WWII. Laos still suffers from over 80 million un-exploded American bombs (not YET exploded). All animals in the Plane of Jars region died, and the only human survivors stayed in their huts eating insects for YEARS. Whatever it takes to get the opium/heroin to Kissinger's Lord, Rothschild? ("Onward Christian Soldiers"?)

Likewise, in the Korean War the U.S. literally napalm firebombed North Koreans back into the Stone Age. Dams were bombed; every city, town, and village was incinerated; survivors lived in caves. One cave refugee survivor: “You couldn’t get away from it, it was splashing down everywhere!” About 1.5 million North Koreans died, mostly civilians, children. News media coverage was prohibited by the psychopath mad firebomber, general Lemay. The stress disorders remain. The ongoing Anglo-America conquest of Asia (economic sanctions, etc.) has some North Koreans eating grass and dirt prior to dying of starvation. The Holy Bible, New Testament, Luke 6:31: “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.” North Korea was (is) the 'best' invasion route to conquer China (general MacArthur wanted to nuclear bomb 21 Chinese cities). Therefore, North Korea is still in the "axis of evil" (read: deserving to be conquered) according to former U.S. President George W. Bush, a member of the Skull and Bones - Illuminati secret society. A "Bonesman," just like daddy (Bonesman nickname: "Magog"), and granddaddy Bush, and uncle Jonathan, and former Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin, and multi-billionaire Stephen A. Schwarzman who is former President Trump's business advisor, and CEO of Rothschild's Blackstone Group. See: https://theintercept.com/2019/08/27/amazon-rainforest-fire-blackstone/.
It boggles the mind that in spite of all the power of the earth's generals and admirals, and all the tax dollars spent on their salaries and benefits and pensions, that a few bankers have enslaved the earthlings in wars for over two hundred years. Why no military tribunals of bankster warmongers who create wars and war crimes by pitting peoples against each other, and financing all sides, maximizing profits by genocide? See: https://newspunch.com/iraqi-intelligence-usa-is-supplying-isis-with-weapons-food/. See also: https://newspunch.com/russia-kill-us-british-israeli-troops-training-isis/.

Also: https://consortiumnews.com/2020/10/28/americas-imperial-expenditures-escapades-stranger-than-fiction/. Formula: use deception, 9/11 inside job, invade poppy and oil fields, get the heroin and oil, Kissinger understudy Bremer fires Iraq military to create the ISIS chaos agent for ongoing civil wars to hollow out nations from within. Creating an enemy like ISIS helps to justify the 'need' for perpetual military occupation (conquest). Rothschild keeps U.S. troops in Syria to 'protect the Syrian oil fields from Syrians' (?) See: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/biden-pick-pentagon-mideast-desk-bragged-us-owns-syrian-oil-territory. Create another problem, resulting in the reaction, then provide the solution. Obviously, many national governments fear Illuminati conquest, so they crack down on internal dissent to get a united "spear-point" national defense as opposed to internal dissension and a "pillow" defense. Do U.S. politicians and military leaders take a modified oath [to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic] that excepts the Rothschilds who brag that American political and military men will be "... so interested in Rothschild profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class?" Are our leaders dumb (stupid), scared (cowards) , bribed (traitors), or all three? All six? Why can't (or won't) they understand: FOLLOW THE MONEY? With 7.8 billion people on earth, why can't that many puppets get organized to cut the strings of a handful of puppeteers? Will humanity go extinct due a psychopath pandemic: Illuminati Cancer (IC)? Literally carved in stone on the Rothschild Illuminati's Georgia Guidestones: “Maintain humanity under 550,000,000 ..." The builder stated the purpose was to promote the New World Order. So 93% of humanity must die? Fascists love eugenics and rejoice over opportunities provided by a pandemic, and refuse to give up the pandemic's "gains." Unfortunately, it gets worse. Read: https://www.amazon.com/Illuminati-Cult-that-Hijacked-World/dp/1439211485/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1522252014&sr=8-2&keywords=henry+makow. George Washington, Founding Father and first U.S. President, said he was aware of the diabolical tenets of the Illuminati, and their infiltration of the Freemasons. He came out of retirement to eliminate the Illuminati, stating he wished he had hunted them all down long ago, when he was still Commander in Chief of the American Army. Obviously, he failed in that critical mission. Now, leadership candidates must answer this question from news media reporters on live television: “Regarding the Rothschild Illuminati bankster warmongers, are you dumb, scared, or bribed?” Unless the answer is convincingly ‘none of the above,’ do not elect them; investigate them. To be fit for office, among many other criteria like normal sanity, they must at least demand Rothschild Fed auditing, and support bitcoin as tax-free legal tender international currency.

“The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men." - Plato
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing.”
"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. … The youth who can solve the money question will do more for the world than all the professional soldiers of history." -- Henry Ford.
"I had never thought the Federal Reserve Bank System would prove such a failure. The country is in a state of irretrievable bankruptcy." -- U.S. Senator Carter Glass, June 7, 1938. “The banks are still the most powerful lobby on Capitol Hill, and they, frankly, own the place.” U.S. Senator Dick Durban, April 2009.
"The Federal Reserve are one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever seen. … Every effort has been made by the Fed to conceal its power but the truth is, the Fed has usurped the government. It controls everything here and it controls all our foreign relations. It makes and breaks governments at will." -- Congressman Louis T. McFadden, 1933. McFadden was the Chairman of the U.S. Banking and Currency Commission for 22 years. McFadden survived assassination attempts in 1933 and 1934, but not the third in 1935, stopping his attempted termination of the Rothschild "U.S. Federal" Reserve Bank. McFadden said of the Great Depression: “It was no accident. It was a carefully contrived occurrence…The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might emerge as rulers of us all." (author's emphasis, re: megalomaniacs). Nobel Laureate economist Milton Friedman: "The Federal Reserve the privately owned U.S. central bank definitely caused The Great Depression by contracting the amount of currency in circulation by one third from 1929 to 1933."

"Crooked? Criminal? Unconstitutional? Well, look around you today and see what the consummation of their (Federal Reserve bankers) activity at that time has accomplished, for right there began one of the blackest pages ever to be written into the history of our glorious country, binding our people link by link with a diabolical chain of economic slavery that can well be called the direct cause of all the grief, suffering, poverty, loss of homes, farms, business, and all the widespread unemployment we are laboring under today.

Thomas Jefferson, our second U.S. President, opposed the First Bank of the United States because it was a poisonous Rothschild operation, led by Rothschild agent Alexander Hamilton, the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. Jefferson hated the traitor Hamilton who wanted a hereditary King of America in the pocket of Rothschild. Jefferson: “Paper is poverty, it is only the ghost of money, and not money itself.” “I believe that banking institutions are even more dangerous than standing armies.” “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.” (READ: MONEY IS THE NATURAL MONOPOLY OF WE THE PEOPLE).

Referring to a bitcoin price chart (weekly high-low bars), Russian Bear (@zargoi on Twitter.com), 10/24/2020: "The number of days from the previous bottom to the halving is equal the number of days from the halving to the next top." This is interesting, consistent with the fractal theme. See: https://twitter.com/zargoi/status/1319942676024856576/photo/1.

It's an unlimited pot." On ’60 Minutes’ news broadcast May 17, 2020: “We have the ability to create money digitally.” Zimbabwe-type hyperinflation to finance wars will be due to bankers manipulating Congress, rich getting richer at the expense of the less rich. At the end, the Zimbabwe currency, exemplified by a one hundred trillion dollar note, lost half its buying power every day.

The CEO of both Twitter and payment service Square, Jack Dorsey, believes Bitcoin will become the world's, and internet's, single future currency. He states bitcoin will replace the U.S. dollar within 10 years. Square has invested $220 million to buy 3,318 bitcoins.

Max Keiser: "Bitcoin is a gift from God to help humanity sort out the mess it has made with its money ... China, Russia, and Japan are buying bitcoin for their own sovereign wealth funds and strategic reserves."@maxkeiser: "I’m raising my official (bitcoin price) target for the first time in eight years, I’m raising it to $400,000.” Max Keiser and his wife Stacey Herbert have promoted bitcoin on rt.com since it was $1. Keiser states, regarding bitcoin’s price: “Bitcoin has no top because fiat has no bottom.” "Fiat money can only exist when backed by men with guns." “Everything on the planet earth will be priced in bitcoin as we head into hyperbitcoinization.” (Unfortunately for the Chinese people, their government has since outlawed digital currency competition with their digital yuan.) Former Overstock.com CEO Patrick Byrne says bitcoin is “the most important change in 6,000 civilizations of technology." Nations as diverse as Japan, France, and Ukraine legally recognize bitcoin as a currency. Dubai accepts bitcoin payment for some licenses and fees. See: https://coinidol.com/ukraine-launch-educational-series/. Apple.com co-founder Steve Wozniak has stated bitcoin is better than gold. From Fox News: "A single bitcoin could be worth $1 million in a few years, meanwhile bitcoin is saving lives in currency hyper-inflated Venezuela."

It ends when the state’s fiat currency is finally worthless.” All governments have committed their currencies to destruction by hyperinflation. In January of 2021, the (Rothschild) International Monetary Fund urges the world’s governments: “Spend as much as you can … then spend some more.” “The money printing is also the reason why Michael Saylor says the real inflation rate is 20% per year. It’s not 1.5% per year that the government publishes as the official number.” -@MaxKeiser Saylor: "Bitcoin is money. Everything else is credit." Iranian President Rouhini ordered bitcoin mining acceleration beyond Iran’s current 4% market share, with the bitcoins sold to the national bank. "When China enters the global Hash Race to secure as many bitcoin as possible the price will instantly trade in the 6-figures." - Keiser The World Gold Council claims Bitcoin could “… undermine the tools used by the Fed and other central banks to influence the economy.” (Thank God!)

The relatively new virtual, digital currency, bitcoin (BTC), is understood differently by different people. According to Wikipedia: "Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer payment system and digital currency introduced as open source software in 2009 by pseudonymous developer Satoshi Nakamoto." Click here for more Wiki information: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Main_Page. (It is better that "Satoshi Nakamoto" remain anonymous). See these very short and simple explanations about bitcoin: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1fKlftNZ_xFKDK8UuRmVH0IaZenRfh_P. See also: https://www.coindesk.com/author-jimmy-song-talks-about-the-little-bitcoin-book. See also: Thank God For Bitcoin. Beware bitcoin.com, because it tries to sell bitcoin cash (bcash) as if it were bitcoin. See https://bitcoin.org/en/, a 1 minute 37 seconds YouTube explanation of bitcoin. Bitcoin is created by computer operations called "mining." Bitcoin ‘miners’ attempt to guess a sufficiently large number of zeroes correlating with next block, about every ten minutes, which concurrently processes pending bitcoin transactions on the blockchain, a computer financial ledger network. Upon success, per block the miner(s) are currently paid 6.25 bitcoins, and bitcoin transaction fees. Current fees: https://bitinfocharts.com/comparison/bitcoin-transactionfees.html. All bitcoin transactions must be confirmed at least three times by miners to be fully confirmed. Mining can be so profitable on a larger scale and bitcoin price that Samsung has entered the mining hardware manufacturing business. Tom Lee suggests a fair market value for bitcoin is about two and one half times the cost to mine one bitcoin. In July 2020 it cost about $6,250 for big mining operations to ‘mine’ one bitcoin, depending on the electricity cost and quality of the computer hardware that is used. @woonomic, Jan 9, 2021: “Bitcoin is not highly concentrated. This is the breakdown from @glassnode data: - 13% exchanges (130m+ users) - 10% miners (includes Satoshi's coins) - 56% non-whale HODLers - 21% whales and custody providers.” (HODLers is a cute reference to long term holders).
The bitcoin currency software is based upon "blockchain" database ledgers of the transactions, similarly your bank has computerized accounting records, debits and credits, transfers, correlating with the "infrastructure". The entire bitcoin transaction history can be downloaded onto your computer. Bitcoin is 'decentralized,' a basic element of freedom from bank and government middlemen and correlated corruption. Bitcoin prices are volatile, so invest what you can afford to lose.
Andreas M. Antonopoulos is one of the most respected bitcoin experts. Search YouTube for his videos. See his 2 minute videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-XUbH1F0Os and also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhKIKB6cn6w. Just as you need not understand the action of electrons in your car's electrical system, you need not understand everything about bitcoin, or everything about its genius mathematical cryptographic software. The important thing is that the car gets you to your destination, the bitcoin payment system is working, and BTC is a store of value. Bitcoin may be the perfect currency when the transactions are almost instantaneous and free. See: https://www.bitcoinlightning.com. Also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rrr_zPmEiME. The Lightning Network fast and private with minimal fees. Check out their payment processing application, Open Node. A small scale beta lightning network is working now, initially for small retail purchases, which only takes 5 seconds. @jimmysong: "The Lightning Network is Internet 2.0." Also, see a recent report by Forbes: https://www.forbes.com/sites/ktorpey/2019/01/23/bitcoin-lightning-network-payments-have-already-surpassed-all-altcoins-at-this-retailer/#5cce75223992. Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey welcomes a Twitter/Bitcoin alliance with his participation in the Lightning Torch pay-it-forward operation. See https://bitcoinist.com/jack-dorsey-twitter-bitcoin-lightning-network/. As with ALL wallets, keep Lightning Network software updated. "With double the Bitcoin being sold to Square Cash app users alone than is unlocked by Bitcoin miners, the demand of Bitcoin will begin to greatly outweigh supply, and cause the value of the asset to set new all-time highs." See: https://cointelegraph.com/news/bitcoin-shortage-as-wall-street-fomo-turns-btc-whales-into-plankton., also: https://www.newsbtc.com/2019/05/02/square-cash-app-bitcoin-supply/. PayPal sells exposure to bitcoin price changes, but does not sell BTC itself. BTC ownership means you have your personal bitcoin address, accessed by your PIN, and if PIN forgotten, backed up by your personal, private seed words. Per Paypal, in 2021, 28 million merchants can accept bitcoin as payment.
Bitcoin is the original digital currency, and it's success has spawned a new industry which is sometimes generalized as digital currency, 'crypto' currency due to greater and lesser degrees of anonymity, privacy, and security; and virtual currency. The MIT works suggest the possibility that bitcoin alone will remain, by simply achieving the capabilities of all the other digital coins, also known as alternative (alt) coins. In the event the internet went down, bitcoin could be transacted by satellite or amateur radio. See: https://bitcoinist.com/bitcoin-can-never-be-banned-reasons/ Also: “Satellite broadcasts from geosynchronous orbit. Pay with the #LightningNetwork to broadcast any message or data.” @Blockstream
The bankers attempt to dissuade us from owning our new currency, bitcoin. Their tactics include implementing onerous government regulations against bitcoin, and selling it short. The Rothschild monopolized mainstream news media spreads fear to control us politically; as well as fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) about bitcoin. [See: https://humansarefree.com/2016/03/there-were-88-media-companies-now-there-are-6-all-get-their-news-from-rothschild.html. The CIA’s ‘Operation Mockingbird’ started controlling the news media in the 1950’s. “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” - former CIA director William Casey, 1981 See also: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/opening-cias-can-worms]. Those bitcoin-bashing efforts are futile, because bitcoin's short term price drops simply increase the amount of bitcoin We the People can afford to buy. Regarding the limit of the effect of short selling on the price, see: https://cointelegraph.com/news/bitcoin-fixed-supply-means-futures-arent-a-threat-to-price-planb. Andreas Antonopoulos on threats to bitcoin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNVqXE2bSfE. As bankers realize they need to capitulate and buy bitcoin (the currency of the future), the higher the price goes, and the wealthier the bitcoin holders get. See: https://www.coindesk.com/rothschild-buys-more-grayscale-bitcoin. “The bitcoin price can reach $1 million.” -- Jim Cramer, CNBC: “Every corporate treasurer should be thinking bitcoin.” Also: https://www.newsbtc.com/analysis/btc/timing-tops-bottoms-in-bitcoin-data-suggests-new-peak-is-less-than-a-year-away/. This realignment of wealth is on autopilot, like a perpetual motion machine. Will you be among the fortunate? The investment opportunity of a lifetime? Maybe; time will tell. Long term bitcoin holders are also patriotic. Bitcoin is a protection against bankster government. Bankster financial wars are the primary cause of poverty and premature deaths.

“Every time Bitcoin has closed above the previous monthly all-time high – a 700% to 1000% uptrend has followed.” Josh Rager, 11/11/2020. Bitcoin and the digital revolution it has started is better demonstrated and experienced, rather than explained, starting with how to set up and use a "digital currency wallet" (like bitcoin). See a video demonstration, learn by viewing, and then by doing. Max Keiser mentions a more private way to buy bitcoin: “This little Azteco printer replaces Bitcoin ATMs ... Merchants anywhere in the world can easily sell Bitcoin. Swap your fiat for voucher-code that loads onto your wallet. Done. ”See: https://azte.co. Another bitcoin service: https://www.abra.com/ advertises Abra is the only app (smartphone software application) in the world that allows you to buy, store, and invest in 28 cryptocurrencies (why?) as well as in equities like stocks, all-in-one place securely. (But why sell bitcoin for stocks, etc?) The Opera mobile browser, Opera for Android, will enable users to buy cryptocurrencies directly on their smartphones. Heretofore, one of the most popular ways to buy, sell, and use bitcoins is the bitcoin exchange, with a 'wallet,' offered by various online bitcoin companies. See also: https://bitcoinist.com/best-bitcoin-wallet/ . See this 10 minute video on how to open a bitcoin wallet, buy bitcoin, and send it to someone else: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4WMAPXuHVg.
To start, exchanges usually require personal information, a 'selfie' picture of your ID such as a driver's license or passport held next to your face. Some bitcoin exchanges restrict purchases to $100 per week pending more and more "verification", like weeks of more small purchases, like when using VISA or Mastercard. Comparison shop exchanges to avoid such restrictions. See: https://www.cryptocompare.com/external/research/exchange-ranking/. Some of the larger ones located in the U.S. include Kraken, Gemini, and Coinbase (Kraken is more in favor of customer privacy). Read the fine print to review security precautions (like 'cold storage') and see if an exchange insures bitcoin or cash deposits against hacking, and qualifying conditions. Avoid exchanges like Etoro if you want custody of your bitcoin, only cash can be withdrawn. Also, the few owners of Digfinex/Ifinex/Bitfinex/Tether/Crypto Capital are under (criminal?) investigation by the New York Attorney General for possible theft of $850 million of customer funds. See: https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@fortified/brock-pierce-or-is-billionaire-bitcoin-board-me,mber-founder-of-tether-and-alleged-pedophile-a-covert-cia-asset? Canadian BTC exchange QuadrigaCX is bankrupt and under criminal investigation. Upon depositing national currency (e.g. the dollar) type funds into the bitcoin exchange account, often by bank wire transfer, or bank to bank account transfer, you are ready to buy. If you are already convinced you want to buy bitcoins, even just .001, one way is to open a bitcoin account at an online exchange, get ID verified and approved. Fund the account, enter a bitcoin buy order, consider transferring it immediately to your hardware wallet, and HOLDING it for years. Just follow the instructions on the website to set up an account. Or if you want to sell bitcoins, check your own exchange or wallet service, regarding their fees to sell bitcoins and deliver the cash to your bank account, such as by wire transfer which may take a week. Bitpay.com critics suggest peer-to-peer payment processors in lieu of centralization which can censor payments. One example: https://btcpayserver.org/ : “Accepting Bitcoin Payments With 0% Fees & No Third-party. BTCPay Server is a self-hosted, open-source cryptocurrency payment processor. It's secure, private, censorship-resistant and free.” See BITCOIN TRANSFER below showing of a screen of BTC transfer between bitcoin addresses.
REASONS TO BUY:
Regarding the previous exponential acceleration of the price of bitcoin, see the YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0kRLvpDBSY, "10 Reasons Bitcoin Price will Destroy All Time Highs in 2017". As you would expect, bitcoin value and thus bitcoin price are set by buyers and sellers in the bitcoin exchanges and other auction type markets. However, thin volume and short term trading on margin (using leverage) make for sloppy fill prices, thus more losses, about 90% of the time. At Kraken.com for example, per U.S. regulations, U.S. bitcoin traders are subject to automatic offset of a margin trade after only 28 days, whether profit or loss. An all cash buy and hold strategy is preferable, see: https://twitter.com/i/status/1314947529541185536. Evidence suggests ninety percent of short term traders lose money, so amateurs should be wary of competing with high speed computers automated by multi-million dollar artificial intelligence investments. Novice people often get upset with long term holders for not telling them when to sell and take profits. Most people are not experienced short term traders, and do not know when to buy back in, also known as reinvestment risk. It opens a new level of risk, which usually results in losses. "Don't trade Bitcoin unless you want to spend 5-10 years learning through losing—it is extremely difficult, requires uncanny discipline, and the success rate is tiny." @breedlove22 It is safer and simpler to stick to the plan, a 5 year minimum holding period. On April 23, 2019 when bitcoin closed at $5,440, one news headline read: “Bitcoin [BTC] Price Prediction Today: Rising Wedge Pattern and Double-Top Patterns Spell Doom.” Two months later the price hit an intra-day high of $13,880. Bitcoin is the best hedge against inflation. See: https://cointelegraph.com/news/us-printed-more-money-in-one-month-than-in-two-centuries.
Max Keiser of RT.com states: "It's impossible to overhype bitcoin. The way bitcoin is changing society is as profound as Gutenberg's printing press or Edison's light bulb". Keiser dismissed concerns about bitcoin hacking, saying the core bitcoin blockchain itself has never been hacked while being immutable. Mark Yusko of Morgan Creek Capital states even conservative pension funds are interested in buying bitcoin. "Researchers from a consulting firm and a pension fund make the case for institutional investments in cryptocurrencies. Example of asset allocation: 1.3% in BTC." See: https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3082808. BitcoinIRA.com enables investors to hold bitcoins in their retirement accounts.

Various American universities such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Dartmouth, University of Michigan, University of North Carolina, Brown, and MIT are invested in bitcoin. Bitcoin investors also include Facebook, IBM, NYSE, NASDAQ, Amazon, JPMorgan, Norwegian Air, and Starbucks. Abra CEO Bill Barhydt states that based upon his survey of big hedge fund managers and other institutional money managers, they will buy bitcoin this year (2021?) Then, ‘All hell will break loose.'

Traditional economists shake their heads, wondering what value is behind it. Bitcoin's creators and supporters consider it a liberating medium of exchange, not subject to the whims of central banks that print excess money. Bitcoin's magic inherent value is called belief that it will be more beneficial than fiat currency. Fiat means national paper currencies like the dollar and yen that governments print per the desires of the wealthy elite, regardless of the effects on the majority of the people. Fiat money like the U.S. dollar is not backed by precious metals, but rather backed by the taxpayers. Historically, fiat money has a reputation for becoming worthless within an average of 27 years. The dollar's buying power in 2018 is about 2 percent of its 1913 value. See: https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/CUUR0000SA0R. To quote former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State Daniel Webster: "Of all the contrivances devised for cheated the laboring classes of mankind, none has been more effective than that which deludes him with paper money." The oldest currency, the British pound, is now worth .5% of its original value. “ … the days of an unbacked dollar are rapidly coming to an end, and it will take down the international fiat order upon which it is based.” See also: https://cointelegraph.com/news/crypto-banks-are-going-to-swallow-fiat-banks-in-3-years-or-even-less.
Stacy Herbert: (@stacyherbert): "Bitcoin is the restoration of the laws of financial physics." The Keiser Report, RT.com. And: "In 1970, the average annual salary in America equaled 159 ounces of gold per year. Today that average salary is 41 ounces of gold per year." Bankster's parasitize We the People with their money printing, see: https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/508022-bitcoin-gold-fiat-standard/. Are 74% of Americans' wages stolen by the Rothschild U.S. Federal Reserve Bank? See: https://www.wsj.com/articles/federal-reserve-taps-blackrock-to-purchase-bonds-for-the-government-11585085843.

See: https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2015/06/18/story-blackrock-modest-participant-bilderberg-conference/. Rothschild self-dealing theft: Blackrock, playing the hero, warns of the upcoming hyperinflation (that their primary owner Rothschild is causing), therefore ‘recommending’ to Rothschild bankster subsidiaries (like the Fed) "inflation-linked bonds.” Keiser: “When the Fed buys ‘assets’ (over $6 trillion recently) it’s effectively laundering money for Wall St. criminals." See also: https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/498401-money-hyperinflation-fix-money/. Currency hyperinflation and deflation: a wave weapon of mass destruction. Printing excess money, such as to finance war, causes inflation. Too much money pursuing available products and services increases prices. The poorest die first due to inability to afford adequate food, housing, and health care. Then, economic collapse threatens civil war. Watch the Federal Reserve Bank commit perjury during Congressional testimony in order to cover its tracks: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QK4bblyfsc, and: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXmNpdYpfnk. Why do we allow the Fed to gift trillions of our dollars to Rothschild European banks, loans never repaid?

"Fiat money is a deeply rooted moral and spiritual cancer on the world." “Let me say it clearly in ‘black and white’ terms: Bitcoin is all good, fiat currency is pure evil.” See: "Bitcoin is Reshaping the World," https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0e_syYhP-s. “Bitcoin is the only private property right absolutely independent of any government decree.” “Bitcoin is optimized for moving value across both space and time.”
Per design, only 21 million of bitcoin will be 'mined,' and 89% of it already has been produced . Thus, the scarcity factor: unlike fiat currencies, bitcoin is effectively not subject to significant inflation. Only 1 out of every 5,000 people will ever own 1 or more bitcoin(s). Also: “If you own 1 $BTC, you are mathematically guaranteed to be top 3/1000 richest in the world, in BTC terms. (21m / 7B). (@cz_binance) August 25, 2019." Approximately 1,000 bitcoin addresses own about 35% of the total bitcoin in circulation. See also: https://usethebitcoin.com/top-10-richest-bitcoin-owners/. See: https://bitcoinist.com/how-many-people-actually-have-at-least-1-bitcoin/. See: http://fortune.com/2017/11/25/lost-bitcoins/. @woonomic: "Total supply of Bitcoin will not be 21 million, it'll be around 16 million" (due to lost coins) . If true, and equally distributed to everyone on earth: only .002 BTC each. Also, the number of BTC rewarding 'miner's' efforts was cut in half in July 2016, and again in May, 2020, again in 2024, etc. The scarcity reminder helps increase BTC prices. Meanwhile, bitcoin is accepted for payment by some major corporations, like Expedia, Subway and Newegg. Major retailers like Amazon’s Whole Foods, Nordstrom, Regal Cinemas, Barnes & Noble, Bed Bath & Beyond, Lowe’s, Office Depot, Baskin Robbins, and GameStop will enable payment by bitcoin by the smartphone scan application called Spedn. Over 15,000 French restaurants accept bitcoin for food deliveries by Just Eat. For a longer list, see: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/companies-accepts-bitcoin-list-updated-121556260.html
According to John Deters, chief strategy officer of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE): "Bitcoin has now evolved to a point that its utility as both a payment vehicle and a store of value is clear, while the overall popularity of digital assets has proven to be pretty resilient." In December 2017, as bitcoin peaked at an intra-day dollar price of approximately $20,000, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) and the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) began trading bitcoin futures contracts. As expected (?), the first thing the institutional traders do is sell BTC short. If not long term committed, maybe weak hands should not be heavily invested in Bitcoin. The CBOE, with partners Van Eck and SolidX have applied to the SEC to allow a bitcoin exchange traded fund, (ETF). SEC Commissioner Robert J. Jackson Jr. states that an SEC-approved Bitcoin ETF is inevitable. Canada has approved the Purpose and Evlove Bitcoin ETFs.
BTC is referred to as a commodity, and as a currency. The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) state BTC is a commodity. Microstrategies CEO Michael Saylor prefers the term 'asset' and ‘digital gold’ as opposed to digital currency replacing the dollar. Saylor: “Bitcoin is a bank in cyberspace, run by incorruptible software, offering a global, affordable, simple, & secure savings account to billions of people that don’t have the option or desire to run their own hedge fund.” Also: "“You can struggle to comprehend complicated charts, analyze arbitrary assets, time terrible trades, & prioritize puzzling portfolios, or you can buy Bitcoin.” (He states he personally owns 17,732 bitcoins). “ … people are going to lose half their wealth in a few years. The solution is Bitcoin.” “It is only speculation if you don’t understand the technology or why you need it.” The CFTC Commissioner has stated that there is an explosion of interest in digital currency, and BTC will probably cost Wall Street a lot of job losses. Bankers are obsolete, failing to change their business model from maximizing profits at any, and every, cost. Bitcoin will now provide services in volume to the many, like 3 billion under-banked people. Buying bitcoin is an act of patriotism and spirituality. Bitcoin use combined with micro-finance, government subsidized smart phones, and free internet access, could help alleviate poverty worldwide. Bill Gates predicts that over the next five years “... digital money will catch on in India and parts of Africa and help the poorest a lot over the next five years." Per Max Keiser, 30% of Nigerians have adopted bitcoin as their monetary standard, see the big picture : https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/506828-american-politics-banking-cryptocurrency/.

Bitcoin is widely legal, see: https://www.coinstaker.com/cryptocurrency-legal-status/.
Meanwhile the banks are investigating how they can profit from the digital currency ideas, such as adopting the block chain for banking services and accounting. A group called R3, comprised of over seventy of the world's biggest financial institutions has been researching ways to harness the speed, accuracy and efficiency afforded by the blockchain. In early 2018 their preferred digital currency appears to be 'ripple', centralized in the Ripple Labs corporation. With 100 billion ripple originally created, with the largest (nefarious) 'pre-mine' of any digital coin, gifting themselves control of 60 billion coins (centralization BAD), with only 38 billion circulating? And Ripple Labs can shut down any account at will, or the whole network? Some critics warn this setup increases the risk of "pump-and-dump" losses. Update: as of December 2020, Ripple (symbol XRP) has been charged by the SEC for illegal securities issuance, is being de-listed by exchanges, complete with investor lawsuits (as predicted). See also: https://cointelegraph.com/news/xrp-the-third-largest-collapse-of-all-time-says-the-tie-s-josh-frank. Andreas Antonopoulos states that the blockchain is nothing but a slow database. It is bitcoin that is all important, not the blockchain infrastructure. He states: “Your keys – your Bitcoin; not your keys – not your Bitcoin.” Antonopoulos is not keen on BTC ETFs (exchange traded funds) due to privacy and control compromises ETFs would mean for investors. Still, the larger banksters are in denial, trying to remain relevant by extolling the blockchain supremacy over their nemesis, bitcoin. See: https://news.bitcoin.com/90-of-corporate-blockchain-pilots-will-never-materialize-researchers-say/. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs bank is investing $ 59 million in BitGo, a digital currency custody firm that is government regulated. Major investment firm Kohlberg, Kravis & Roberts (KKR) buys bitcoin.

Here is a statement from the New York state department of financial security: "It is in the long-term interest of the virtual currency industry to put in place appropriate guardrails that protect consumers, root out illegal activity, and safeguard our national security." As of 2015 in New York state there is now a $5,000 license fee to operate a digital currency business, a money transmitter license. However, Kansas, Illinois, New Hampshire, Tennessee, Texas and Wyoming have enacted laws that exempt some digital currencies from money transmitter licenses. Can the banks compete? Not in the long run, given the elegant simplicity of bitcoin. As the very young bitcoin 'geek' said to the banker: "You can't stop us!" See also: https://bitcoinist.com/bankers-know-they-cant-stop-bitcoin-says-max-keiser/. Bankers oppose bitcoin because there is no need for bankers, or their thefts, warmongering, and drug trafficking. As banker (and thus government) opposition to digital currency is overridden, just as digital photography replaced film photography, and email replaced much of paper mail, bitcoin transactions increase and volatility drops, increasing the utility of bitcoin as a currency.. Technology marches on. Not even bankers can stop the rising tide. Former Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel says bitcoin is a currency, and hopes other states will agree. Wyoming State Representative Tyler Lindholm went on an interview on CNBC television to promote Wyoming as a welcoming destination for crypto businesses. He explained that if you mine bitcoin there is now no longer a property tax, no income tax and no corporate tax. In spite of heavy opposition from the banker lobby (no surprises) Wyoming easily passed a law allowing institutions to offer financial services using bitcoin. Wyoming has passed a law giving direct property rights to cryptocurrency holders, making it even harder for the state and federal government to confiscate your bitcoin. The Miami, Florida mayor Francis Suarez wants to buy bitcoin for the city’s treausry, while enabling taxes and fees paid with bitcoin, and allowing the option for employees to be paid with bitcoin. Suarez hopes to get Wyoming’s blockchain and crypto laws in Florida." [Just like Nebraska and South Dakota have already adopted those digital currency laws.].
One fear is that of money laundering and using bitcoin to facilitate crime, terrorism, etc. due to it's pseudo-quasi-anonymous nature. It is not terrorists using digital currency for such crimes, it is mostly the banks. Fiat money outpaces bitcoin 800:1 for money laundering. “Digital currencies are much cheaper in circulation than traditional fiat money, promote trade, increase transaction transparency and reduce the risks of money laundering and tax evasion.” -- the People's Bank of China. Antonopoulos: "Just because terrorists wear shoes, we do not ban the shoe industry." @bitcointrooper: “They warn bitcoin is used by criminals, but it’s actually our best tool against them.”
The European Union has internal debate on whether it can regulate bitcoin at all, and has legally designated bitcoin as a currency that is exempt from value-added taxation. The Japanese bitcoin trading volume is fast increasing. One Japanese company offers bitcoin paychecks. Japan's largest BTC exchange is bitFlyer, now in the U.S: https://bitflyer.jp/en/. In 2019 most bitcoins are bought using the Japanese yen, followed by U.S. dollars, and S. Korean won. See: “Japan’s Financial Services Agency Loves Bitcoin and Lightning Network,” https://bitcoinist.com/japan-the-global-leader-in-bitcoin-and-lightning-network-adoption/. About 11% of Japanese own bitcoin, and 10% of Americans. One third of S. Korean workers own bitcoin, comprising 30% of total cryptocurrency trading globally. Their popular anger stopped government threats to ban bitcoin trading. Large Chinese bitcoin exchanges are now moving to S. Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, etcetera. Singapore and Thailand have approved bitcoin trading.
When the Mt. Gox bitcoin exchange in Japan reported $480 million dollars worth of missing bitcoins (650,000 BTC) due to hacking, the exchange filed for bankruptcy. That hacking triggered the bitcoin price plunge from about $1,163 intra-day high in November 2013 to the January 2015 intra-day low of about $152 (per Bitstamp). Was that $152 intra-day low price the "despair" low point, therefore the bitcoin market bottom? Evidence suggests the Mt. Gox trustee Nobuaki Kobayashi has subsequently ignored the advice of Kraken.com CEO Jesse Powell, as well as reversed his own prior promises, and instead dumped thousands of bitcoins on the open market, thereby depressing the price. Self dealing (short selling?) market manipulation? Now in civil rehabilitation, creditors will be paid bitcoin. Regardless, long term bitcoin holders are patient. See: https://blockonomi.com/mt-gox-hack/ . Fundstrat Global Advisors’ Tom Lee states Mt. Gox selling is a short term concern, and does not change the positive long term fundamentals.
Ray Dalio is the founder the largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates, with over $160 billion in assets under management. It is interesting that he and all 1,500 of his employees practice Transcendental Meditation®. See: http://www.tm.org, Dalio recommends gold and bitcoin investing, before the debt load implodes, stating: "We are headed into a Great Depression." “We Are On The Brink Of A Terrible Civil War."

See also: https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/479457-dethroning-us-dollar-debt-weaponization/. Morgan Stanley Bank recently published a report calling bitcoin “a gold mine for institutional investors.” Also good for individuals, presumably. "He who owns the bitcoins makes the rules"? “Bitcoin Price Hits $10,320 as Fed Chairman Confirms Crypto Is a Threat to U.S. Dollar,” coinspeaker.com.
JP Morgan Chase Bank CEO Jamie Dimon sometimes announces bitcoin is a bubble, fraud, etcetera; then his bank buys bitcoin at lower prices upon the resulting selloff (Dimon's daughter is a bitcoin buyer, and he admits the price may go to $100,000). See also, a Keiser Report: https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/510330-bitcoin-valuable-future-currency/, One EU jurisdiction has Dimon under criminal investigation for market manipulation: https://www.thestreet.com/story/14322661/1/jp-morgan-ceo-jamie-dimon-bitcoin-market-abuse-swedish-firm.html. However, in March 2018 Dimon reversed course and obeyed federal law, in the bank's "full disclosure" report to the SEC and potential bank investors, stating bitcoin was a threat to the bank's business model (e.g., could put the bank out of business). Likewise, the Bank of America made a similar statement. Since 2010, JP Morgan Bank has paid fines of $28.7 billion for financial crimes like predatory lending and mortgage fraud resulting in the economic crash of 2008. Bankster-victimized homeowners cannot apply directly for those funds, enabling government agencies to keep more for themselves. See: http://graphics.wsj.com/bank-fines-where-did-the-money-go/#secondStory. A summary: "A judge called Serageldin’s conduct 'a small piece of an overall evil climate within the bank and with many other banks.' And yet no one from any other bank or mortgage company that melted down — including Lehman Brothers, Washington Mutual, AIG, IndyMac and Countrywide, to name but a few — ever went to prison for that 'evil.' No one. In 2012, the Treasury Department estimated the total lost household wealth at $19.2 trillion." See: https://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/04/magazine/only-one-top-banker-jail-financial-crisis.html. How many Americans died due to inability to afford proper medical care? Why no felony prosecutions by all 50 state Attorneys General? December 2017 allegations arise against several such large banks for ongoing money laundering of human trafficking, drug trafficking, and terrorist armaments money. Fewer bankster warmongers = fewer terrorists? See: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/03/opinion/how-bankers-help-drug-traffickers-and-terrorists.html.

Fines are a routine cost of doing bankster business. @danheld: “0.3% of all cryptocurrency activity in 2020 was illicit. 90% of US Dollars has cocaine on them. Which one is 'used by the bad guys' again?”
Max Keiser replies: "To say bitcoin is fraudulent would be like saying gold is fraudulent. Some might say this, but no rational person would agree." John McAfee replies to JPMorgan CEO Dimon: "It costs $1000 to mine 1 bitcoin. (Now much higher). What does it cost to print US dollar? which one is the fraud?" Meanwhile, Wall Street wants in on the bitcoin profits. See: https://news.bitcoin.com/first-soros-now-rockefellers-move-into-cryptocurrency/.
John McAfee @officialmcafee (Twitter): "We are in a revolution against the waning power of governments and bankers. Their only weapon is sowing fear. If you give into that fear, then it impedes and delays our inevitable victory. Cryptocurrencies are not crashing. They are bending against the impotent wind of the past." (Accurate statements about bitcoin, but not about McAfee-promoted alt-coins that DID crash. See: https://cryptopotato.com/sec-sues-john-mcafee-for-fraudulently-promoting-icos/. News articles have declared bitcon “dead,” 380 times (01/2021 update: 393 times), yet its economic fundamentals get stronger every day. See: https://99bitcoins.com/bitcoin-obituaries/ Historically it has had several profit taking selloffs in price, from which it has always made historic bull runs, growth spurts.
Keiser continues: "US dollar, stocks, bonds, and property are all in bubbles. Bitcoin (and gold) are underpriced vs. these other assets that are in bubbles. Bitcoins are very cheap vs. government bonds - that are trading at multi-hundred-year highs - for example." Economist and Bitcoin Foundation founding director Jon Matonis states : “To the people who say bitcoin's a bubble, I would say bitcoin is the pin that's going to pop the bubble… The bubble is the insane bond markets and the fake equity markets that are propped up by the central banks. Those are the bubbles.” New York University’s “Dean of Valuation,” Aswath Damodaran, asserts that Bitcoin is a true currency and not a fraud, and bitcoin supersedes gold as a store of value: http://www.coindesk.com/people-trust-cryptocurrencies-gold-says-wall-street-dean-valuation. Saifedean Ammous: "Bitcoin is the most advanced and best form of money ever invented." “Ten years ago today, 5,050 btc were sold for $5.02 in the first market transaction for bitcoin. Today, they'd be worth $42,171,792.50. A rise of 838,078,685%.” @saifedean Oct 12, 2019. Historically, no other investment vehicle comes close to bitcoin's performance. Read his The Bitcoin Standard textbook: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36448501-the-bitcoin-standard. Bitcoin Standard quotes: https://twitter.com/ydemombynes/status/985560599248756736. “Bitcoin’s real cost is in hardware & electricity needed to run the network. Fiat’s real cost is the hundreds of millions of deaths at the hands of governments made omnipotent by inflation.”
Bitcoin's popularity around the world is rising, with more and more businesses accepting the currency. Approximately 260,000 Japanese food establishments and retail locations are currently accepting bitcoin as payment for goods and services. Over 1,500 restaurants in Denmark accept bitcoin payment. Bitcoin automatic teller machines (ATMs, or BTMs?) are now cropping up in some countries, and about 38% are two-way, accepting both the national currency to buy bitcoins, and accept bitcoins to get cash. In the U.S., "You'll Soon Be Able To Buy Bitcoin at the Grocery Store." See: http://fortune.com/2019/01/18/buy-bitcoin-grocery-store-coinstar/, and: https://www.coindesk.com/2000-more-us-grocery-stores-enable-bitcoin-buying-at-coinstar-machines.

Bitcoin is payment for public transportation in 37 Argentine cities. Australians can now buy bitcoins in their post offices, and 1,200 newsstands throughout the country. All 10,000 French tobacco shops can sell bitcoin in 2019; also: https://oracletimes.com/bitcoin-payment-to-be-accepted-at-over-25000-major-retail-stores-in-france/, and 7-Eleven stores in the Philippines.

Courtesy of Liberty-X ATM machines, soon the public can buy bitcoin using cash at 20,000 7/11, CVS, and Rite-Aid stores. See bitcoin prices in various countries: https://www.bitcoinpricemap.com/. An ETF (exchange traded fund) example is a security that trades in a basket of securities, or in a commodity, or index thereof, tracking the price, such as a stock or bond mutual fund, corn, gold, oil, etc. An application for an ETF by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss (the same twins who originated the Facebook idea), was denied twice. Although centralized, such an ETF should bring substantially more institutional money into buying bitcoin, and thus a bullish price rally. “Bitcoin is the first time in the history of the world that people have reached peaceful agreement around billions of dollars in economic value." The twins also state bitcoin is the only long term hedge against inflation, see: https://www.coindesk.com/winklevoss-brothers-bitcoin-inflation-500k-price. @cameron: "The only known commodity in the universe that has a deterministic and fixed supply." “Friends make sure friends buy bitcoin.” “Its such a powerful idea that it has no need for a government or military.” @tyler: “Don't miss the revolution." "Inflation destroys the fruits of your labor." Their Gemini Exchange deserves a look regarding security. They offer qualified insurance. Bitcoin exchanges hold the majority of currency offline in 'cold storage' for security. Exchanges are required to report balances over $20,000 to the IRS.
Magester Advisors released their research that suggested bitcoin would be the world's sixth largest reserve currency by 2030. If so, how much would each bitcoin be worth? Ronnie Moas of Standpoint Research states that "... a fraction of the world’s $200 trillion in stocks, bonds, gold, and cash will eventually make its way into bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies over the next 10 years. Moas thinks cryptos will be used as a payment system in emerging economies, and a store of value elsewhere. Cryptocurrencies then establish themselves as an asset class that mainstream investment advisers pitch to clients, he says. This scenario takes bitcoin’s market value from $225 billion today to $1 trillion. Overall, he believes cryptocurrencies will reach $2 trillion as they go to 4% of global investment assets', Moas says." "The Bitcoin industry and cryptocurrency market are growing at an exponential rate and if such growth rate can be sustained in the mid to long-term, the market cap of Bitcoin will be able to break the $1 trillion mark." See: http://www.newsbtc.com/2017/10/18/bitcoin-much-better-fiat-says-billionaire-investor-tim-draper/. Also: (Twitter) @RonnieMoas: "I dont care if bitcoin is not the fastest or cheapest. I'm buying & holding something that 300 mln people will be trying to get their hands on two years from now & there will only be a few mln available for sale. That mind-boggling supply/demand imbalance will drive $BTC to $100K." IBM (International Business Machines) blockchain leader Jesse Lund states bitcoin will be worth $1 million: https://cointelegraph.com/news/bitcoin-will-hit-1-million-says-ibms-vp-of-blockchain-jesse-lund.
If you buy even just one bitcoin for all cash now, or even a fraction of a bitcoin, like .01, for a long term holding, be sure to list it in your last will and testament. Perhaps reference a safety deposit box number? Clues in your will to find hidden treasure? Train heirs?
The National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations (NASDAQ), the world's second largest stock market after the New York Stock Exchange, has prototype software for securities transactions that uses the bitcoin blockchain technology. Currently, a stock purchase or sale takes two business days to close, besides the next step of actually transferring the funds. Using the blockchain technology, both steps occur immediately, and the data is, itself, the money. The Governor of China's Central Bank, Zhou Xiaochuan has stated that digital currencies will inevitably replace cash. Some countries are working on their own digital currencies. However, read this great article regarding bitcoin's superiority over the central banks' digital currency attempts: http://www.coindesk.com/central-bank-fail-digital-currency/. Officials at the Swiss National Bank confirm that private digital currency like bitcoin is superior to any attempt by any national bank to create their own digital currency. The head of Germany’s central bank, Jens Weidmann, states that central bank digital currencies could weaken financial systems and make bank runs faster, and worse. In 2018 Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed: 'By definition, neither Russia, nor any other country can have their own crypto ... cryptocurrency goes beyond national borders.' One year later, Sperbank gave up competing with bitcoin, see: https://www.coindesk.com/russias-largest-bank-is-quitting-central-banks-blockchain-project. However, Russia's central bank is still Rothschild infected and continues to fight bitcoin. Bitcoin is legal in Russia but only as an investment which can be bought and sold, taxable property, not as a currency to buy goods and services. Ownership and transactions must be reported for tax purposes. Rothschild wants no competition against central banks digital currency (CBDC). The Rothschild banking monopoly is trying to surf the wave of change it cannot prevent, pivoting into CBDC. CBDC is dangerous because it is easier to confiscate your money with a keystroke. Adam Back: “... banks can't compete with (bitcoin’s) zero sign up, accountless, permissionless bearer cash.” @adam3us See: https://cointelegraph.com/news/russias-biggest-bank-hypothesizes-its-crypto-token. Also: https://nowmeditate.blogspot.com/2018/12/purging-russia-from-evil-rothschild.html. More anti-Rothschild contrary opinion: Vladislav Ginko of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration: "US sanctions may be mitigated only through Bitcoin use. Because of US sanctions, Russia’s elite is forced to dump US assets and US dollars and invest hugely into Bitcoins. The central bank of Russia sits on $466 billion of reserves and has to diversify..." US sanctions were imposed in 2014, and as of April 2019 the Russian ruble is down 100 percent against the dollar. Bitcoin, on the other hand, is up 1000 percent against the USD during the same period. Russia falls behind by preventing the natural use of bitcoin as currency. Digital currency is currency.
In early 2015 one friend was considering a long term holding of bitcoin, so I suggested he use 'dollar cost averaging' (scaling in purchases) to accumulate a position. See: https://medium.com/@homeytel/dollar-cost-averaging-update-ae81204ae272. For example, he could make first of the month (cash) purchases of bitcoin between $200 and $300 per bitcoin, and those prices were available in 2015. He might never get the exact low price, but overall he might have an average cost of approximately $250 per bitcoin. If the price went back up to the "old" intra-day high (http://www.bitstamp.net exchange) of $1,145 per bitcoin, he would be a happy investor. Technical chart analysts love the idea of the price 'returning to the old high', the 'all time high' or ATH. Given the price surge In November 2017, I advised him that one profit taking idea is to sell when the daily price goes below the previous week's low, i.e., at sell stop order at $14,676, which was hit on 12/21/2017. See also PlanB’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) analysis: " ... for bitcoin that range seems to be a monthly price RSI>90 overbought and RSI<50 oversold." https://twitter.com/100trillionUSD/status/1326481890627506181/photo/1.
Once in your bitcoin account, sending BTC is as simple as copying and pasting the send-to address in the window provided, such as my favorite bitcoin address: 3AVP4AFmMD7rqJpRHxD7XJSCv5E5Cb6wrH (thanks for the donation) then enter the amount in fractions (decimals) of a bitcoin, such as .01, or 1 or more bitcoins, then click send. Or, spend (buying) is similar. Or transfer between your own bitcoin addresses. Done. It is as easy as text messaging on a cellphone. It is similar to online banking, moving dollars from checking to savings, etc. Some people have said it is as easy as sending an email. See also: http://www.bitcoin.org.
The European Union has fully licensed the bitcoin exchange http://www.bitstamp.net, effective July, 2016, although "nosey" about where you got your bitcoins, and how. No "seminar" or "webinar" is needed to open a bitcoin account, just log onto an exchange site and complete the sign-up instructions. Such exchanges offer trading and spot market investing for cash.

@APompliano: “It is a matter of national security that the United States embraces and adopts Bitcoin … Anything less will be catastrophic to the country.” If Bitcoin (software) mathematics reflect a law of nature, what are the growth implications?

Bitcoin is less risky than U.S. Treasury Bonds, especially for long term holders. Due to the bitcoin supply shortage, the higher the bitcoin price the less risky it is for long term holders. To gift someone bitcoin, consider: https://givebitcoin.io/. As the U.S. debt load continues to implode (flash crash?) causing bank failures and U.S. dollar hyperinflation, people with 'hard money' assets like Bitcoin (BTC), and maybe gold and silver, will prosper ; click here: http://www.usdebtclock.org/, Given trillion$ of "off the books" wars and empire expenses, under-funded pensions, the $1.5 quadrillion derivatives bubble, re-hypothecation fraud, and unsustainable debt load interest, the U.S. dollar might collapse. See: https://www.newswars.com/alarming-study-finds-us-public-pensions-to-run-out-of-money-by-2028/.

As of 12/16/2020, a new all-time high price of over $21,500, 100% of Bitcoin ownership is profitable. To quote Microsoft former CEO Bill Gates: "Banking is necessary, banks are not." With bitcoin, be your own bank; un-confiscatable wealth. @maxkeiser: "Bitcoin will move 25 -30x faster to the upside than gold as banks implode... At some point, the fiat (national currencies like the dollar, yen, rupee, etc. ) world will just spontaneously combust." “Nothing can stop bitcoin, all fiat and alt-coins will be destroyed.” See: https://twitter.com/maxkeiser/status/1306606991792640011?s=19 “Bitcoin was created in defiance of the global banking establishment … to do battle with the central banks.” “Only keep money in fiat that you are willing to lose.” Also: https://quillette.com/2021/02/21/can-governments-stop-bitcoin/. And: https://bitcoinist.com/us-dollar-will-crash-faster-and-harder-says-pro-bitcoin-economist/. Analyst Willy Woo: “Assuming Bitcoin adoption rate continues … then 30% of the world population will own Bitcoin in 4 years time.” “Bitcoin's software is quietly eating the financial world." Buy only .0001 bitcoin? See: https://cointelegraph.com/news/safeway-shoppers-can-now-get-bitcoin-back-as-change-at-894-us-stores. Financial karma and intuition: “Everybody buys bitcoin at the price they deserve.”
This website is intended for informational and entertainment purposes only; opinions, which can change, not giving advice. Some analysts are scaling in monthly purchases. See: “Russians Bought $8.6 Billion in Bitcoin, Says Kremlin Economist.” “… increasing US sanctions will make impossible to do international transactions as usual so they purchase bitcoin as a way to circumvent US sanctions… https://bitcoinist.com/russia-bitcoin-kremlin-economist/. Iran is also using bitcoin to bypass the U.S. dollar in trade. Bill Gates has stated about bitcoin: "Bitcoin is exciting because it shows how cheap it can be . . . in the future, financial transactions will eventually be digital, universal and almost free." An example of bitcoin store and transfer of value: in April 2020, $633 million worth of bitcoin was transferred at a cost of 26 cents. If the price of one bitcoin is $10,000, then .0001 bitcoin is worth $1.00. See:

We were not taught about the “Fed” in high school civics class, the “Federal” (private) “Reserve” (paper money not backed by gold or silver) “Bank” (cartel). That is because it was (is) a creature of Congressional ignorance, cowardice, and bribery. Now, even poor Americans pay their tax checks via the Internal Revenue Service, a private for-profit corporation ‘collection agency’ registered in the state of Delaware, not Washington D.C. It is NOT a specific creation of Congress but, has been allowed to metastasize into a de-facto federal agency. Tax checks are then cashed by the Fed. The Fed refuses to tell Congress that they send some of the money (our ‘missing’ $21 trillion?) to the World Bank, a notorious Rothschild Usurious Loan and Extortion Snake (RULES) that preys on third world nations. “The World Bank has for decades left a trail of human misery.” See: https://theecologist.org/2017/mar/23/world-bank-claims-sovereign-immunity-escape-liability-its-crimes-against-humanity. Trillion$ of our tax dollars are gifted to European Rothschild banks, thus no audits allowed. The following link is a NY Times chart that illustrates how the "U.S. Federal" Reserve Bank also steals money from We the People by money-printing hyperinflation of the U.S. dollar, and gifts that money to the wealthiest, who then buy stocks and bonds. "Our" "national" "bank" prints trillions of dollars to gift to themselves and their friends. See: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/08/07/opinion/leonhardt-income-inequality.html . Rothschild self-dealing theft: "If everyone is holding stocks just to pass on to the next greater fool, and if the greatest fool is a central bank with infinite liquidity to buy them, then, yes, prices will keep going up,” - -Rabobank, June 9, 2020.
@maxkeiser, 05/28/2020: “The gap between rich and destitute will be extreme within a year. 200M Americans will be penniless. Want to be on the other side of the poverty divide? Stack Sats (buy Satoshi units of bitcoin) Daily.” Three popular ways to buy bitcoin regularly by automatic deduction from your bank account: https://okcoin.com (lower fees), or https://swanbitcoin.com, or https://cash.app. Protect yourself and your loved ones, see this < 2 minute video: https://twitter.com/i/status/1269085942435819521. See also: https://www.austriancenter.com/cantillon-effect-populism/. " ... in case of a monetary expansion, the ones who profit from it are the ones who are close to the money .... everyone who can access the money right at the beginning, i.e. big companies, banks, etc. They get loans and make investments. Prices then start to rise even though the rest of the population has not received any of the new money yet. Nonetheless, they have to pay the higher prices even though they have not profited from the increase in money at all. And they will never profit from it in the same way as the ones who received the money first. The result is a redistribution from the poor to the rich." Which is, of course, the only reason the Rothschild "U.S. Federal" Reserve Bank exists. 'Bank runs' are LONG overdue, see: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/07/coronavirus-banks-collapse/612247/. Fortunately, bitcoin has started to replace the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency. Reparations? See Rothschild Barclay’s Bank historical slave trade profits: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUfMkIx7Ypg. Meanwhile, Rothschilds owe ALL of us reparations from economic slavery and $21 trillion of our money ‘lost’ from the federal budget. Initially due is $20,000, paid in bitcoin or dollars as preferred, to each U.S. head of household in the middle and lower economic classes.
See: https://twitter.com/PierrePoilievre/status/1260696693470879747, wherein the Canadian government finance minister refuses to discuss Canada’s finances with Canadians. Qui bono? Who benefits from keeping We the People in ignorance of our own finances? Historically, money has been the Rothschild's and Rockefeller's primary weapon of world conquest, thus bankster-bought governments prohibit schools from teaching students about money. “The greatest trick central banks have played upon the world is making it appear that Number Go Up when in fact Number Go Down.” @lopp
"Bitcoin is feared because it is a network-based system and banks and governments are hierarchical systems. Hierarchies give orders and expect submission by inferiors. Bitcoin is inanimate.

Also: 'The Moon' by Carl Martin, one example, 06/22/2020: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzNdagITKgg&t=23s. If the next bull cycle repeats the previous one exactly, will the bitcoin price top out in October 2021 at $318,438? “Only .27% of the global population can own 1 bitcoin each.” @TheMoonCarl. (Beware short term trading in case your 'financial karma' is not as good as Carl Martin's). Historically, will these BTC prices be buying opportunities that save pensions, even with just a 1% asset allocation into bitcoin? See: https://thebitcoinnews.com/1-bitcoin-99-cash-portfolio-outperforms-gold-bonds-sp-500/. As of April 8, 2019 Murad Mahmudov believes the odds indicate the 2019 bitcoin low price is behind us, with a 2023 top above $100,000. See: https://twitter.com/MustStopMurad. Others believe the bitcoin price already bottomed out at the $3,200 area in 2018, The late Tyler Jenks (hyperwave theory) predicted an eventual $10,000,000 bitcoin price. Per bitcoin analyst and author Willy Woo the 2019 low was probably January 28th, ~ $3,375 area, therefore very bullish for the long term.

Daniel Krawisz, a co-founder of the Satoshi Nakamoto Institute, has written that Bitcoin-induced currency demonetization, or hyperbitcoinization is what would occur should any hapless currency stand in bitcoin’s path of total world domination, resulting in a bitcoin price of $100,000,000 (one hundred million dollars).

Adam Weishaupt gave himself the title: "Illuminatus Rex," a megalomaniacal psychopathic fantasy whereby he is the king of the world, the alpha male wolf. However, it should be much easier to transcend animalistic, reptilian, psychopathic fear of more normal people, We the People, than it is to reduce us all to sheep. Psychopaths would not pit “right” against “left”, creating dissension, playing both ends against the middle, to weaken and thus easily divide and conquer ALL of us, would they? We hope this next video is not true. If it is, why isn't it common knowledge? In this video the Canadian-Israeli journalist and book author Barry Chamish first explains Torah law, such as the Ten Commandments, e.g., Thou SHALT NOT Kill, Steal, Lie, Commit Adultery, etc. Then Chamish explains Sabbatean Frankist Babylonian Talmud Lurian Kaballah Illuminati law: completely OPPOSITE of the Torah and Ten Commandments and 613 mitzvahs (traditional laws), whereby Thou SHALT Kill, Steal, Lie, Commit Adultery, etcetera. Their prayer: "Blessed be he who permits the forbidden." See BOTH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vWMxHBuuP6U, AND: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WyVyPK7H8_k&feature=youtu.be. Sun Tsu: "Deception is the art of war." Also: https://rense.com/general20/rabb.htm, excerpt: ".. Jews are the chief victims of the New World Order, not its chief promulgators." See: https://www.jpost.com/opinion/olmert-i-hate-everything-sheldon-adelson-loved-about-israel-opinion-656289 We do not blame ANY peoples for being infected by the Molech Illuminati Rothschild Virus (MIRV). Is MIRV the most dangerous virus in history? [Do the Rothschilds really have over 200 American biological weapons laboratories scattered around the world? See: https://www.the-sun.com/news/2365701/world-health-organization-us-weapons-lab-covid-china/. The U.S. Fort Detrick Bio-weapons Lab has a long history of violations]. We ALL need to summon “our better angels” as the vaccine against tyranny. If the above is true, Kissinger type anti-semitic false Jews, for over 350 years, have used Judaism as the camouflage to pursue the ultimate hedonism of world conquest, even at the risk of annihilating all life on earth. Or is that Molech’s objective? The Molech nuclear arms race has resulted in over 12,000 nuclear bombs worldwide, enough to annihilate humanity many times over. Will Mother Nature’s harsh Covid medicine work to help stop MIRV Armageddon? [MIRV: also an acronym of Multiple Independent Reentry Vehicle, any of several nuclear warheads carried on the front end, or “bus,” of a ballistic missile]. Former U.S. President Woodrow Wilson: "Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."

Andreas Antonopoulos on bankers as parasites on society: “Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know-Your-Customer (KYC) are misnomers. They are in fact, 'licensing' schemes where rich, powerful and systemically important banks can money-launder with impunity, while preventing competition from smaller firms.” "The banking system, payments, finance are the biggest cartels in the world ... They own all of the the media channels, politicians, and laws; that makes it easy for them to get away with crimes. In fact, mega-crimes ... They robbed us blind, strip-mined the economy, had an orgy of fraud, and knew exactly what they were doing." See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgI0liAee4s&feature=youtu.be.

How did we lose control of our government? "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws." - Mayer Amschel (Bauer) Rothschild (1744-1812), founder of the banking House of Rothschild. End of mystery: " ...the Rothschilds’ strategy of domination, which was based on the control of the central bank of a nation in order to dominate its economy and government. This was what they did in England, France, Germany and Austria, allowing them to expand their power over the rest of Europe and the world." See: https://havanaschooleng.blogspot.com/2011/02/cuban-conspiracy-five-rothschild-and.html. Rothschild's wife, Gutle Schnaper Rothschild: “If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.” Would invading aliens from outer space (or young souls, predatory animals in their previous life) behave any differently if they wanted a world of their own? Historically, during a village famine, the psychopaths literally became vampires, the last people standing. They also use inbreeding to perpetuate the bloodline, and abusing their children. See: Bloodlines of the Illuminati by Fritz Springmeier: https://www.amazon.com/Bloodlines-Illuminati-Fritz-Springmeier/dp/0972792929. Fourth U.S. President, James "Father of the Constitution" Madison: “History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance." Founding Father and 2nd U.S. President John Adams said, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” All forms of predatory social chaos speed up the rate of bitcoin adoption: https://bitcoinist.com/doomsday-clock-nears-midnight-time-to-buy-bitcoin/.
See: Dr. Robert Hare's book, Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go To Work, https://www.amazon.com/Snakes-Suits-When-Psychopaths-Work/dp/0061147893. Psychopaths lie to people's faces with sincerity, conviction, and enthusiasm, great fun, in a vain attempt to satisfy their insatiable egos. Gullible non-psychopaths have no defense. Psychopaths (about 1 out of 100 people) cannot control their impulses, so we must control them. Sociopaths: about 1 out of 25 people, but capable of a little remorse. At what age should psychopath identification education be mandatory? When newborn babies get immediately spanked, does the shock, pain, terror, and anger-based adrenaline rush successfully PREVENT normal neural circuitry formation in the brain, to create a future psycho-soldier? To simplify, normal neural 'wiring' between the psychopath brain amygdala area and the prefrontal cortex is absent, leaving only the lesser evolved reptilian "fight or flight" brain functional, as can be documented in a physiology laboratory. A medical laboratory should certify minimum neurological and blood flow in the brain of a U.S. Presidential candidate to avoid burning down the world. See the magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of a normal vs. psychopathic brain; also: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4034374/. An F.B.I. report: “Functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI) research indicates that psychopaths are incapable of experiencing basic human emotions and feelings of guilt, remorse, or empathy.” See: https://leb.fbi.gov/articles/featured-articles/the-corporate-psychopath. Brain scans of societal leaders should be published. One theory is researching a paternal psychopath gene. STOP ELECTING PSYCHOPATHS ! "Sociopathy is dangerous, in part because out of envy of other human beings for having human characteristics, it actively desires people to suffer and die." (Like, during war, or a pandemic?)

The first Bitcoin transaction was on October 12, 2009 when Satoshi Nakamoto’s Finnish development assistant Martti Malmi sold 5050 Bitcoins for $5.02, making each bitcoin worth $0.0009. On May 16, 2011, @GregSchoen wrote: "I wish I had kept my 1,700 BTC @ $0.06 instead of selling them at $0.30, now that they’re $8.00!"

The 'PlanB' author admits this 'Stock 2 Flow' model fails if the price of bitcoin is below $100,000 by December 31, 2021. He further predicts BTC to be worth $1 million in year 2025. “So in the league of statistical models that explain the price of bitcoin, the S2F model is the true winner until another model comes along that proves to be superior.” @BurgerCryptoAM @stephanlivera podcast with @real_vijay: “ .. PlanB’s work is eerily accurate, it is almost scary to see how accurate it is." See Sunny Decree’s explanation of PlanB’s Stock to Flow (S2FX) model: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2zITxs-QJc. Raoul Pal: “This is what I saw in @100trillionUSD model when he first revealed it. It gives a great valuation for not only bitcoin but gold and silver too (and other similar assets). It's super powerful for relative valuations and outright valuations for all these assets. Amazing work.” "Bitcoin is eating the world ... It has become a supermassive black hole that is sucking in everything around it … and gold investors will flip to BTC.” "@RaoulGMI: "You can buy bonds and dollars or you can take the life raft - Bitcoin." “Bitcoin’s performance is SO dominant and SO all-encompassing that it is going to suck in every single asset narrative dry and spit it out. … holding any other assets makes almost no sense.” “The significance of the world’s greatest and most respected money manager – Stan Druckenmiller saying just now that he is long bitcoin can not be overstated. That has removed every obstacle for any hedge fund or endowment to invest…” -- Raoul Pal If a person is still a "no-coiner" but has confidence in such price charts, then perhaps buy a major position if the price is below the internal trend line or at the bottom of the price channel, while continuing to dollar cost average purchases.

Once you have paid a small purchase fee, like .25%, subsequent transferring the BTC to a different account is electronic, and cheap. The SWIFT bank wire transfer of money can take from 2 to 10 days, depending on the situation, and cost between $20 and $65 U.S. dollars for small amounts. Transferring $100,000 could cost $4,000. Transfering bitcoin (when initiated from the wallet) only takes a few minutes in 2020, cost $2.50 in May 2020 to transfer $400,000,000 (see "the halving", below). As of June 8, 2020 bitcoin’s average transaction fee has dropped to about $1. The blockchain computer network needs to do the verifications.

Scared money usually loses. Long term holders, sometimes misspelled as "hodlers," are not scared into selling. One poll suggests many bitcoin holders will not sell until the bitcoin price reaches $200,000. Long term holders may benefit by assigning someone else to report the annual bitcoin closing price thereby minimizing the fetish of keeping daily track of it, which can lead to selling before the recommended minimum 5 year holding term. The issue is not whether the price has doubled or halved today, but rather is the long term trend upward. HODL BTC to secure a future for children?

One friend said he was worried about buying bitcoin, given the contrary opinion of vested economic interests. Andreas Antonopoulos states the greatest threat to bitcoin is not governments. In October 2019 the Chinese President Xi endorsed blockchain technology, with spillover renewed interest in bitcoin investing. See: https://bitcoinist.com/major-chinese-bank-invests-in-popular-bitcoin-wallet/. In September 2017 the President of European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, stated: “(It is) not within our power to prohibit or regulate bitcoin”, yet some EU bankers want bitcoin taxed out of existence. This time, the will of We the People will prevail. See below: "'EU crackdown on bitcoin is attempt to protect banks." See: https://www.rt.com/news/413517-bitcoin-cryptocurrency-eu-crackdown/. See also: https://news.bitcoin.com/worlds-biggest-banks-helped-clients-steal-63-billion-in-taxes-in-europe/.
If any threat to bitcoin at all, perhaps one of the other digital currencies. Like what, bcash? A Microsoft report states it used the wrong approach to speed up b-cash transactions. Ethereum? The more complicated the software, the more attack vectors, and the easier it is to hack (thus the superiority of bitcoin?) See: https://news.bitcoin.com/report-claims-34000-ethereum-smart-contracts-vulnerable-bugs/ See: https://twitter.com/Excellion/status/1292659160153067521 regarding the debate about how much ethereum is in circulation. Maybe a coin that is not yet created? Could it compete with the burgeoning bitcoin industry, such as comparing transaction volume and market capitalization? Bitcoin maintains healthy market capitalization dominance over alt-coins. Andreas Antonopoulos advises: "Ignore the drama, bitcoin is stronger than ever." Another of his #LondonReal interviews: THE FUTURE OF MONEY: How Bitcoin & Blockchain Become The World’s Currency - Part 1/2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aILeOqZEwY (46 minutes). His website: https://antonopoulos.com/. Antonopoulos believes bitcoin will eventually absorb the functions of virtually all the other digital currencies. He also cautions that an exchange traded fund (BTC ETF) only tracks price, is not BTC ownership, reduces privacy, and could emphasize store of value over the currency (payment) feature, slowing down the widespread adoption of BTC as currency.

"RT: Under the new EU legislation on tightening regulation, are governments trying to discredit users of cryptocurrencies by labeling them all as ‘money launderers’?" [Author's note: the short answer is, yes, and "tax evaders"]. McAfee says don't worry about it because the bureaucrats don't have the manpower to enforce it (although he has been arrested for back taxes due).

"If we have something that decentralizes the money supply and threatens the business model of the banks, there’s going to be pushback against it," claims former (British) MI5 intelligence officer Annie Machon ... "It is inevitable. Any crackdown on our rights of privacy on the internet always has an excuse that it is trying to stop money laundering or trying to stop terrorism or pedophiles or whatever." Adds Paul Rosenberg: "So many banks have been caught out money laundering on vast scales and have received vast fines for laundering gray and black money from particularly the drug trade. Perhaps, we should say that the EU should close down our banks, too ... What this really boils down to at the end of the line is the coercive institutions of the past being threatened by the voluntary institutions of the future."

At a (June 2018) conference of the world's central bankers, the question came up as to whether bitcoin was a threat to the government fiat currencies. The answer was no, as long as the people retain confidence in those currencies. Why should they have such confidence? In the event of a bank run on such ‘too big to fail’ banks like JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, and Goldman Sachs; only the first three percent of customers can get their money out. The worldwide industry standard fractional reserve system often only requires about 3% of customer's deposits to be retained in the bank, hyper-leverage on top of infinite money printing. The bankster fractional reserve system is a pyramid or ‘ponzi scheme’, and such frauds always fail, quickly upon a 'bank run'. See the greatest theft in history, the Federal Reserve Bank: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQUhJTxK5mA.

As chairman of the Judiciary Committee, U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley stated that “99.9% of all money (US dollar) laundering crimes go un-prosecuted.” Banks routinely launder over $2 trillion per year. "The entire American economy is just a façade for money laundering." - Max Keiser. The “Illegal Foreclosure King” bankster warmonger former U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin (Skull and Bones-Luciferian Illuminati secret society and 17 year veteran of Goldman Sachs bank) lied on live television, stating U.S. dollar cash is not laundered because those attempts are prosecuted. [See the Skull & Bones, Bohemian Grove, New World Order, and Illuminati descriptions below]. So if bitcoin is used for any "laundering", bitcoin should be banned. See on CNBC TV how naturally Mnuchin lies to the world: https://twitter.com/SquawkCNBC/status/1151817678157484034. Finally, a little pushback: https://www.coindesk.com/us-lawmakers-tell-mnuchin-to-back-off-from-potential-crypto-wallet-regs.

Bitcoin, the worldwide digital currency of the future, is a tool to help achieve justice in society. As a practical matter, it will be easier to have peace on earth with a government that is designed to enable the greatest good, to the greatest number, in the shortest time. We the People need to educate our leaders that we want that which is best for us. Then the many can prosper along with the few. Nothing is stronger than an idea whose time has come. Knowledge is power. Fairness and justice are the inherent ideals and goals of government. In his book The Republic, Plato specified that social science specialists, the governors, philosopher kings, were best qualified to administer social justice. They were to be trained to know “the Good,” the enlightenment state as discussed in Plato’s "Allegory of the Cave." Mature souls are not fear-full, therefore not predatory. The absence of compliance with natural law is anarchy. The more conformity with the laws of nature, the less bureaucratic government needed.
Financial well being often facilitates more free time for Self development. Throughout Nature, structure dictates function, so improve the brain structure to improve the brain function. Enlightenment requires culturing the brain to add billions of previously dormant ‘on idle’ brain cells to the operating mental capacity. Remove ‘circuit breaker’ stress from brain cells. The massive increase in neural circuitry and increased electrical flow is symbolized by a 'halo,' as in bright and spiritual ideas. For consciousness based education, see: https://www.miu.edu regarding using all of the brain structure potential to use all of the potential mind function; also: https://tm.org. Accelerated evolution magnifies intellect, intuition, and compassion.
To quote Albert Einstein: "You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it." Know thy Self, remember home, the kingdom of heaven within: pure consciousness. Perhaps instead of cursing the darkness, we should switch on the light. "Knowledge is structured in consciousness." Just as problems during dreaming are resolved upon waking, problems during waking consciousness disappear in cosmic consciousness. As green trees create a green forest, peace-full and joy-full people will create heaven on earth. Enjoy variety, adore divinity. Transcend to enjoy.
Looking on the bright side of spirituality, like a solar flare God boomerangs a piece of Self saying:
“Now find your way back and we will call it bliss: transcend to ascend!"

Previous 4 year "halvings" of the miner reward/reductions in bitcoin inflation, that also emphasize scarcity, have resulted in price expansion (green zones) lasting about 18 months, followed by downtrend (red zones), and consolidation (blue zones).
Famed billionaire and hedge fund creator Paul Tudor Jones is loading up on bitcoin, $100 million into the investment safe haven, as he bets on the "fastest horse". "Bitcoin's $500 billion market cap is wrong in a world where equities have a $90 trillion and gold has $7 trillion...and God knows how many trillions of fiat currency."

New York Digital Asset Manager, nydig.com's CEO Robert Gutmann: “Big institutions are only interested in bitcoin.”: ($115 million invested in bitcoin. Skybridge Capital owns $182 million worth of bitcoin, expecting an institutional ‘tidal wave’ of more buying. Ruffer Investment: $744 million in bitcoin). One River Asset Management: $1 billion into bitcoin. Michael Saylor of Microstrategy, the world's largest business intelligence firm, has purchased 90,531 bitcoins, paying $2.171 billion, because "It is better than cash." The Jeffries investment firm, with $51 billion in assets under management, announced a 5% allocation ($2.5 billion) purchase of bitcoin. Saylor: "It is a reserve asset that is a dependable store of value; bitcoin avoids inflation." “No one who actually understands bitcoin only puts in 1%.” “We just had the awful realization that we were sitting on top of a $500 million ice cube that’s melting.” (Due to excess dollar printing based inflation). Saylor would buy every bitcoin if he could. As of 02/16/2021 Saylor wants to issue more bond debt to buy $600 million more of bitcoin.

Missing the train means an opportunity lost. Missing the ark means everything lost.” "Bitcoin is a swarm of cyber hornets serving the goddess of wisdom, feeding on the fire of truth, exponentially growing ever smarter, faster, and stronger behind a wall of encrypted energy." "Bitcoin is the first digital monetary system capable of storing all the money in the world for every individual, corporation, and government in a fair & equitable manner, without losing any of it. If that's not intrinsically valuable, what is?" “When the Bitcoin Dragon emerges from its lair, the first thing it will eat is the Kingdom of Gold. Hoarding Gold is an antiquated approach to storing value … Augmented by great technology partners, Bitcoin is capable of collecting all the monetary energy in the world, storing it securely & perpetually without power loss, and channeling it efficiently to anyone or anything at the speed of light.” “Bitcoin is a better Store of Value for $300 trillion currently trapped & rapidly depreciating in Bonds, Stocks, Real Estate, Cash, & Gold.” “Bitcoin is the world's best treasury reserve asset, the emerging dominant monetary network, and the solution to the store of value problem faced by 7.5 billion people & $300 trillion in capital. At this point, it is all but unstoppable.” "#Bitcoin is the solution. Everything else is just noise." “Bitcoin is the world’s best treasury reserve asset & the emerging dominant monetary network.” “Bitcoin is the best and most liquid security invented in the history of the world.” "Bitcoin is going to flip gold, then subsume negative-yielding sovereign debt. As it marches toward $100T, growth rates will fall, the volatility will fall and it's going to be a stabilizing influence on the entire financial system of the 21st century.” “The destiny of money is to be encrypted.”

Tom Lee of Fundstrat Global Advisors makes a sophisticated case for a $10,000,000 bitcoin price in 2029. Click this YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGberGnxiJk&feature=youtu.be. In the 2018 bear market, Lee believes the bitcoin price bottomed out in 2018 near $3,200. At a bitcoin price of, let's say, $3,500; .01 bitcoin (BTC) would basically only cost $35.00. The smallest bitcoin price unit is one Satoshi, .00000001 bitcoin, and one bitcoin = 100,000,000 Satoshis, so at a $1,000,000 BTC price, 1 Satoshi = $.01.

Former Goldman Sachs Bank Vice President Raoul Pal: “Bitcoin is eating the world.” He states that bitcoin may be the ultimate investment: “It may not be even worth owning any other asset as a long-term asset allocation." It would be his choice if he could only own one asset for the next 10 years, adding that its price could be $20,000 in 2021 (actually, 2020; see both cartoons: https://twitter.com/i/status/1339230915965411329) and $1 million by 2025. “I can not express how bullish I am on bitcoin. We are at risk of losing the entire system right now. I know they will find a way to save it but all trust is lost." Pal further states the current monetary system is collapsing, and bitcoin is the solution: “It (bitcoin) is an entire trusted, verified, secure, financial and accounting system of digital value." "Bitcoin is already the best performing asset in all recorded history.” “Bitcoin is the greatest form of collateral.” " ... there’s an enormous wall of money coming into this." See: https://www.newsbtc.com/2020/03/22/ex-goldman-sachs-bitcoin-likely-surmount-20k-within-18-months/.

"Until now whenever we’ve needed to transfer money we’ve had to rely on a third party, whether it be a bank, a clearing house or a payment network. Bitcoin offers, for the first time, a method for transferring value and making payments from anywhere to anywhere, in real-time, without any intermediary. This could mean we soon see many billions of people sending bitcoin everyday as easily as they currently send a text message." Within 5 years 1 billion people will use a bitcoin phone application to store their life savings.

Although past performance is no guarantee of future success, the future looks promising. In 2016 multi-billionaire bitcoin venture capitalist Tim Draper predicted a BTC price of $10,000 in 2018 (actually reached on 11/28/2017). When asked if he would sell bitcoin for dollars, he said: "Why would I sell the future for the past?" Also: “If I had a meeting with [Indian Prime Minister Narendra] Modi, I would have let him know he is making a huge mistake. [Bitcoin] should be the national currency.” “ It will set them back 40 years." See also: https://cointelegraph.com/news/expert-india-will-lose-an-almost-13-billion-market-by-banning-crypto.

Or, https://bitcoinmagazine.com/articles/bitcoin-help-india-achieve-5-trillion-economy. Also, Draper predicts a $250,000 bitcoin price by the end of 2022." Draper also states of Bitcoin “It's bigger than the Iron Age, the Renaissance. It's bigger than the Industrial Revolution .... (10 to 100 times bigger) than the internet." He states bitcoin will replace the US dollar in 5 years. “This is one of the best things that’s ever happened to us.” See: https://cointelegraph.com/news/tim-draper-says-bitcoin-is-bigger-than-the-industrial-revolution-in-debate-with-skeptics. "While the United States trends towards isolationism, it’s also opening the door to have the dollar supplanted by Bitcoin as the primary international currency of choice." --- Ken Jacobs, CEO of asset management firm Lazard. He states that is also due to U.S. dollar hyperinflation (which is theft of money from us and our grandchildren). Anti-virus creator John McAfee stated bitcoin is the most important invention since agriculture, the "saving grace of humanity." "Only an idiot could miss the fact that the crypto market is a brand new paradigm unto itself." Mark Yusko of Morgan Creek Capital calls bitcoin a digital gold store of value, and gold is an $8.4 trillion market, thus his eventual $400,000 bitcoin price prediction. “We believe bitcoin will be one of, if not the, largest network on the planet. We are in the middle of the greatest wealth opportunity … It’s beyond any of our imaginations.”
Should we worship war criminals, or jail them?

U.S. mutual fund investment firm Fidelity®, which administers over $8 trillion in client assets, has announced the launch of a new company, Fidelity Digital Asset Services. Fidelity reportedly already works with “over 13,000” institutional clients — to draw these actors into the emerging (digital currency) space. See: https://www.forbes.com/sites/christopherbrookins/2020/08/27/fidelity-is-a-1000-pound-bitcoin-gorilla-in-the-making/#31230fe278f3. Fidelity states 22% of institutional Investors have some digital asset exposure. Fidelity® agrees with PlanB’s bitcoin research. See also: “Bearish on Bitcoin?

HAPPY 12th YEAR BIRTHDAY, BITCOIN! Thanks, 'Satoshi Nakamoto', for your 'white paper,' which you copyrighted with bitcoin.org in October, 2008! On January 10, 2009 Hal Finney tweeted from @halfin: “Running Bitcoin.” Although not Satoshi himself, he was a co-developer; may he rest in peace.
Adam Back, Ph.D. in computer science, Co-Founder/CEO of blockstream.com, was an early collaborator with Satoshi Nakamoto. See @adam3us : “People who held (bitcoin) the last 1-5 years roller coaster, won't even blink at $100k. Wake me up when $350k.” He states that based upon the science, bitcoin is the superior digital currency. An original Satoshi email:
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: "Are banks doomed to eventually disappear? The answer is yes! Should this be done tomorrow and should it be done via bitcoin? That is a question." The U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has allowed nationally-chartered banks and credit unions to provide custody services for digital currency; but confiscatable ! Deutsche Bank predicts bitcoin will replace national currencies. As of 02/2020, 40 German banks have applied to be custodians for digital currency. See: https://www.dbresearch.com/PROD/RPS_EN-PROD/PROD0000000000503196/Imagine_2030.PDF. Bitcoin is the primary digital monetary network.

Buckle up!” Bitcoin's historical annual return: about 250%.
When you sign into your bitcoin account (similar to logging into your email account), the above is an example of what a bitcoin withdrawal screen looks like when you want to transfer bitcoin from one address to another. Each bitcoin DESTINATION ADDRESS (aka 'hash') is unique, encrypted by 34 characters: numbers, capital letters, and lower case letters. If the above bitcoin address belonged to a merchant, imagine that you are spending 0.10 bitcoin to buy something worth $378.10 in U.S. dollars, because the current market price of bitcoin is $3,781.00. Then click the REVIEW WITHDRAWAL button to go to the next popup screen, Step 2, then click CONFIRM to send the bitcoin to the address shown. Use your wallet; or to use the public blockchain to check the transfer status, copy the bitcoin address, and insert it into the blockchain.com search window: click here: https://www.blockchain.com/explorer. Bitcoin privacy is enhanced if you use a new destination address each time you send or receive bitcoin, available with hardware wallets (see below). Keep ALL wallets firmware and software updated.

Another popular bitcoin exchange is http://www.kraken.com, in San Francisco since 2011. It is entrusted by Japan as the trustee for the Mt. Gox claims, and has been given a top score for security. See "Bitcoin 101" by Kraken.com CEO Jesse Powell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iG-bpAnRvqM.
BTC investor Roger Ver states: "We all wish we could have invested in Bitcoin when it was worth 10 or 25 cents per coin, as it is now worth $370/bitcoin (as of 9 Feb 2016). $100 investment at 25 cents/bitcoin would be a handsome $148,000 today. So, is it too late to invest in Bitcoin? I don’t know–is it too late to get involved in the internet?"
“I think of [Bitcoin] as the insurance policy I use to sleep soundly at night, just in case the central banks and governments of the world step on a land mine.” “It is important that we have a hedge -- a non-correlated hedge. And I still struggle to find anything that is as uncorrelated to anything else and to everything else as Bitcoin.” - Chamath Palihapitiya, CEO of Social Capital
With growing acceptance of cryptocurrencies in Germany (Germany legally recognizes bitcoin as a legitimate financial instrument, a medium of exchange), as well as in Asian countries like Japan and Singapore, the banking industry will be forced to keep pace with the new financial technology world. Germans can now buy bitcoin just like buying stocks. Consider a recent (June 30, 2017) statement by Antony Jenkins, the former CEO of Barclay's Bank, quoted from bitcoin.com: "This is just in the footprints of what's going to happen here. As these technologies season and develop, we can imagine total transformation of the banking system, using Blockchain for example, in a world where banks don't really exist anymore." The popularity of virtual currencies is undeniable, which means that even if these bigger institutions aren’t interested, others most definitely are. President of the Crypto Valley Association in Switzerland, Oliver Bussmann, has said that “more and more bankers are coming in,” hoping to capitalize on the lucrative gap left by their larger counterparts. See: http://bitcoinist.com/europe-small-banks-crypto-big-banks/.
Keiser's October, 2022 bitcoin price analysis: https://www.fxstreet.com/cryptocurrencies/news/bitcoin-price-prediction-btc-grand-liftoff-to-28-000-max-keiser-202010181108. Max Keiser continues: "Bitcoin has intrinsic value the same way a gold mine has intrinsic value. When you own bitcoin, you own a piece of a network that, like a gold mine, has intrinsic value," Keiser explains. "This is a bit misleading in that gold supply is worth trillions and bitcoin is worth billions. The real question is, what price would bitcoin need to get to the equal value of gold. The answer is, well into the $100,000 per bitcoin. Will it get there? I think so, yes." “Capital flight out of Asia is taking the bitcoin express." Slide forward to minute 13:50 to view Max Keiser’s guest “Vortex” to get his enthusiastic overview of the various strengths of bitcoin. See: https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/443405-us-plutocracy-corporate-elite/. “The truth is if you want individual sovereignty, if you want justice, if you want uncensorable, unconfiscatable, indestructible wealth, there’s only one way to go — and that’s Bitcoin.” @maxkeiser again: "America is the new Saudi Arabia, princes and paupers only, no middle class." See: https://www.rt.com/business/490897-keiser-us-economy-pandemic/. "#Bitcoin can peacefully euthanize the Fed. It’s the humane thing to do. Delaying the inevitable is cruel." The Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) states the bitcoin price must hit about $213,000 to replace the U.S. money supply. Also: https://btcmanager.com/swiss-government-bank-offer-bitcoin-lending-custody-services/. “Don’t believe in central banks? No worries. Bitcoin is the US 10-year Treasury of the modern era,” the Financial Times wrote.

@JimmySong: “#Fiat money has a theft-function built in. Paper backed by gold also has a theft-function built in. CBDCs will have a theft-function built in. Bitcoin is the only one missing that function. #Bitcoin is the most secure money in the world.” "You can either have liquidity or a store of value, but not both in a fiat money system. Bitcoin Fixes This." “This is the future … Bitcoin evens the playing field.” “Go with the only digital and decentralized money: bitcoin." "Bitcoin can absorb more capital than any startup, stock or bond. Its ability to absorb value is near infinite." Also, see the YouTube 22 minute video of Saifedean Ammous explaning bitcoin strength: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFbXhTky2T4&pbjreload=10. See also: https:// saifedean.com. As an investment, the long term bitcoin price action is indeed a NEW PARADIGM characterized by upward parabolic price fractals, then some profit taking, and sideways price consolidation: repeat, per this 10/19/2020 chart.
Regarding the covid pandemic, we were warned: The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance, by Laurie Garrett, 1995. Download the .pdf file: https://all-med.net/pdf/the-coming-plague/. Paul Tudor Jones: “We are witnessing the Great Monetary Inflation (GMI) an unprecedented expansion of every form of money unlike anything the developed world has ever seen.” After a few months of deflation, the inevitable inflation will hit hard. Jones further states bitcoin is the best hedge against the economic effects of the age of the COVID-19 virus. “It’s like investing with Steve Jobs and Apple or investing in Google early.” Also: https://cointelegraph.com/news/bitcoin-won-as-store-of-value-in-coronavirus-crisis-hedge-fund-ceo. Tim Draper: “When the world comes back, it will be Bitcoin, not banks and governments that save the day.” U.S. Congressman Tom Emmer: “Bitcoin’s strength will continue.” Dan Held of Kraken.com: “Fiat is the virus. Bitcoin is the vaccine.” “Since the dawn of humankind, governments have sought to seize and censor the transactions of their citizens. Bitcoin breaks that power over citizens by enabling anyone, anywhere to transact with whomever they like and preserve their wealth without trusting anyone else. That’s the magic.” “If you own 1 Bitcoin, you’re part of the 0.2%.” @danheld. Fidelity Investments® states Bitcoin is uniquely decoupled from the price action of other asset classes, so any portfolio should be comprised of at least 5% bitcoin. See: https://cryptopotato.com/fidelity-explains-bitcoin-grow-trillion-dollar-market/. Raoul Pal, former VP at Goldman Sachs bank, states that it would be easy for bitcoin to reach a total market capitalization that is similar to that of gold: $10 trillion. "I don't believe we shall ever have a good money again before we take the thing out of the hands of government, that is, we can't take it violently out of the hands of government, all we can do is (...) introduce something that they can't stop." F. Hayek (1984) Homework: with maximum of 21 million bitcoins, or 16 million bitcoins, and a market capitalization of $10 trillion (similar to gold), how much would each bitcoin be worth?
Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell: “'America Exists Today to Make War': Lawrence Wilkerson on Endless War & American Empire", see: https://www.democracynow.org/2020/1/13/lawrence_wilkerson_american_empire_war. "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." – Bastiat “The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those who speak it.” -- George Orwell, "1984". An old world expression: "He who dares to tell the truth had better have one foot in the stirrup."
The Federal Bitcoin Investment Wealth Agent badge is suitable as an award for tutoring new bitcoin buyers. There should be no unemployment among email and bitcoin account operator/FBI Wealth Agents. The FBI Bitcoin Badge is a great gift to empower the youth, costing only .0025 bitcoin, $25 at a BTC price of $10,000 (includes shipping). Email FederalBitcoinInvestment.firstname.lastname@example.org to specify the number of badges wanted, and a shipping address.
An old Chinese saying: "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." @themooncarl: "Bitcoin is the best form of money ever and possibly the best risk/reward investment we have seen throughout human history." “It is fascinating to me that the school system globally does not educate students about money.” Would federal, state, and local government laws mandating digital currency bitcoin K-12 and continuing education be preferable to private badge theatrics? “In a few years they (the U.S. Government) will likely be talking about adopting Bitcoin as a national currency. Patience.” @Apompliano

Patriots buy bitcoin to succeed where the politicians and generals have failed.
Central Bank money printing also funds bitcoin purchases; poetic justice as banksters finance their insignificance.
Former Congressman and Presidential candidate Ron Paul states in his book The Revolution just how bad the monetary system is today, and bitcoin can help fight the decaying global economy. See also: https://cointelegraph.com/news/bitcoin-to-the-rescue-as-ron-paul-says-us-fed-fake-economy-has-burst. Paul has been trying to abolish the “Federal” Reserve Bank (the Fed) for years. "The Federal Reserve should not exist." "Our national bank" is primarily owned by eight (8) European and American families. See: https://hangthebankers.com/the-federal-reserve-cartel-the-eight-families/. "The Fed is a government-created monopoly that counterfeits dollars by the trillions, and you're supposed to believe that this is "capitalism." “We should do whatever we can to legalize bitcoin.” See: https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_sociopol_fed.htm. When one U.S. politician called for bitcoin to be banned, Ron Paul responded by calling him “just another Washington thug," and stated: "…the dollar is going to self-destruct.” A Ron Paul national poll result: bitcoin is the best investment for the future. See: https://bitcoinist.com/half-choose-bitcoin-ron-paul/.
Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank, warns a large-scale shift away from government currencies and into bitcoin could put bankers out of business; bitcoin is 'clearly shaking' the banking business. She once praised digital currency, suggesting it could transform the way people save and invest. Redemption of a bankster? No, Lagarde caved in, called for coordinated international regulation of bitcoin due to “money laundering,” but made no mention of her boss Rothschild as the world’s primary source of war instigation and financing, drug trafficking, and money laundering (see below).

Are Crypto Credit Cards Next? Backed by Microsoft and Starbucks, Intercontinental Exchange is launching a startup called Bakkt to make the cryptocurrency safe for your retirement fund, and maybe for retail, too." [By Shawn Tully, August 3, 2018]
"Bitcoin could be on the verge of breaking through as a mainstream currency. At least that’s the goal of a startup that is soon to be launched by one of the most powerful players on Wall Street, with backing from some of America’s leading companies.

Reward and punishment control behavior. Money talks and threats are real, so bankster predators have all the reward without risk of punishment by their prey. After the bankster war destruction profits come the bankster re-construction profits. Also, see the first segment: https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/478316-fed-repo-markets-gold/. Keiser: "It's called genocide for profit." See also: https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/01/06/america-escalates-its-democratic-oil-war-in-the-near-east/. Countries like Iran, North Korea, and Cuba "need" regime change to install or re-install Rothschild central banking and enslavement to the U.S. dollar, just like in most countries. The Illuminati U.S.A. (by President Reagan and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld) provided banned bio-chemical warfare agents like sarin and mustard gas (weapons of mass destruction) to 'ally-of-the-moment' Saddam Hussein's Iraq so as to instigate yet another regime change in Iran for more oil theft. AIRCAT: American Instigated Regime Change for Asset Theft. There is a VERY long list of national governments that the CIA has overthrown, replaced by puppet regimes. See also: https://www.counterpunch.org/2004/06/17/how-reagan-armed-saddam-with-chemical-weapons/.

The CIA had Saddam Hussein on the payroll for 40 years. That eight year Iraq-Iran war "successfully" killed 2 million people, half of whom were children. As the Iraq defeat loomed in 1988, the U.S.S. Vincennes deliberately shot down an Iranian passenger plane over Iranian waters, killing all 290 civilians. No apology yet. That U.S. Navy captain and the crew involved were awarded medals for heroism, and promoted to higher rank. That war crime attack worked: to protect their civilian planes from slaughter Iran sued for peace and pre-war borders. Then, Saddam Hussein 'got smart' and tried to bypass the U.S. dollar in the oil trade, and Mohamar Ghadaffi in Libya wanted a new dinar currency backed by gold. Their nations were decimated, and they were killed. See: https://www.ufo-blogger.com/2011/05/libya-war-exposed-gaddafi-targeted.html. Some nations like Russia and Hungary have fought back. Putin said he paid Rothschild off, grabbed him by the scruff of the neck, and kicked him out of Russia’s back door. See: https://csglobe.com/putin-banned-rothschild-banking-cartel-russia/. However, not that easy, as mentioned above regarding the latest attempted Rothschild Russian Central Bank digital coin. See also: https://politicalvelcraft.org/2013/03/23/putins-purge-another-rothschild-goon-found-dead-another-flees-to-u-k/. And: https://truth11.com/2016/03/01/end-rothschild-hungary-kills-the-rothschild-banks-ordered-to-vacate-country/. Orbán declared: “Hungary enjoys the trust of investors, by which is not meant the IMF, the Fed or any other tentacle of the Rothschild financial empire." About 80% of money managers recently voted that paper currencies are NOT real money. On the contrary, see: https://cryptopotato.com/imf-poll-digital-currencies-are-real-money/. By Rothschild design, “The Fed” calamity must print ever-more money to prevent economic collapse until the system itself collapses, sucked dry of the wealth it generated.
Dr. Robert Hare states that psychopaths are: " ... intraspecies predators who use charm, manipulation, intimidation, and violence to control others and to satisfy their own selfish needs … "Lacking in conscience and in feelings for others, they cold-bloodedly take what they want and do as they please, violating social norms and expectations without the slightest sense of guilt or regret."

A critique of Trump's Rothschild ties: https://newspunch.com/trump-rothschilds-world-war-3/. Is it easier to appoint a U.S. President rather than shoot them if they don't do what they are told? Why not perform psychological tests on a Rothschild U.S. President before giving them nuclear weapons? Instead of 'billionaire' Trump paying taxes, the Rothschild IRS pays him $10 million criminal rebates? See: http://www.bushstole04.com/monetarysystem/irs_rothschild.htm.

Apple.com co-founder Steve Wozniak has given a glowing endorsement of bitcoin, saying that he hopes the cryptocurrency will one day serve as a global single currency. He states: “Only Bitcoin is pure digital gold." PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel agrees. Digital Currency Group’s Barry Silbert states Bitcoin is 50 times more useful’ than gold. Grayscale alone bought 55,015 bitcoins in November, 2020; only 27,881 were mined in that month. See his Grayscale Investment Trust "Drop Gold" TV ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BIDcmh_6Es. Grayscale has over $30 billion worth of bitoin, over 3% of all bitcoin (about 643,801 bitcoins) as of 01/19/2021, but unfortunately settles in cash, not delivering actual bitcoins back to investors. Coinbase has 1 million bitcoins in customer storage, about 5% of existing bitcoins. Antonopoulos states bitcoin is much more than just “digital gold.” It is an ongoing evolution in various applications of exchange of value and information. Former Coinbase CTO Balaji Srinivasan states: bitcoin is the new gold standard that will conquer Silicon Valley, Wall Street, and everything else. An article from investing.com suggested bitcoin could soon rapidly drive out cash as a means of payment. See: https://www.investing.com/analysis/how-long-till-bitcoin-replaces-cold-hard-cash-200310923/ “Never before has wealth been stored with such security. This drives BTC price. Which drives hashrate. Bitcoin won." See: https://bitcoinist.com/saurel-offers-convincing-reasons-why-bitcoin-is-better-than-cash. The prestigious realty firm Brown, Harris, Stevens (bhsusa.com) believes that in five years Bitcoin transactions will make up 25 to 30 percent of sales. see also: https://bitcoinist.com/bitcoin-digital-real-estate-property/. Financial blockades and economic sanctions are bad for humanity but great for Bitcoin. The more Patreon, Visa, and Mastercard censor, the stronger bitcoin becomes.

In China, OKCoin’s (now in the U.S.) Duan said: "Talking about the impact of digital money now is like trying to predict how the Internet would transform lives in the 1980s. We know it’s going to be huge. It has the potential to change the entire economic infrastructure. We’re just not sure about when and how." The China market remains huge, as one survey suggests approximately 40% of Chinese people want to invest in bitcoin. Also, a white paper by the Chinese government bank, the People's Bank of China (PBOC), is a plan to buy one million bitcoins, enough for one bitcoin per China's 1 million villages (one third of the world's total). Each village, with an average of 916 people, would eventually be a "millionaire". See also: https://cointelegraph.com/news/chinas-state-run-media-bitcoin-is-blockchains-first-success.
Read about China's potentially game-changing quantum encrypted communications satellite network: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-4777230/Chinese-quantum-satellite-sends-unbreakable-code.html Could the quantum speed hack any PIN or password? Some BTC Core guys are worried, most are not: “In the grand scheme of risks and threats, it will take 20 to 30 years to be a real threat and by that time, we will have better signature schemes." Andreas Antonopoulos states bitcoin's design can withstand a quantum computer attack. See: “What Makes Bitcoin So Unstoppable”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wBRUM2TSZY. “Hardware wallets are still the most secure mechanism for (digital currency) cold storage,” See: https://twitter.com/aantonop/status/1255517126015815680. Other than an online internet "bitcoin wallet", consider using hardware wallets that stores BTC OFF-line, for example: https://www.ledger.com, https://www.trezor.io, https://www.keepkey.com. See wallet review articles like: https://99bitcoins.com/hardware-wallets/. [Order DIRECTLY from the manufacturer, if possible avoid using home shipping address and personal phone number, maybe use an alternate email address. In 07/2020 Ledger.com was hacked for such customer personal information. Coins still safe but burglars are unwanted. Beware fake phishing emails instructing you to update software/firmware.] No hardware is absolutely infallible. Keep your secrets, hide wallets, use a safety deposit box? Only $100,000 insurance at https://safedepositboxinsurance.com. And, double check receiving and sending addresses to verify they are correct. Use such OFF-line wallet hardware to avoid loss of coins due to hackers. Are all cellphone SIM cards vulnerable to phone company 'inside jobs'? @lopp: “It's borderline criminal negligence that many bitcoin custodians still expose their users to sim swapping attacks.” Hardware wallet keys extra security: such as https://keys.casa. Lose your PIN, AND your seed words, lose your bitcoin. One company, Wallet Recovery Services, has said it gets 70 requests daily to help find lost digital keys. Also: https://thehackernews.com/2019/09/simjacker-mobile-hacking.html?m=1. Andreas Antonopoulos recommends hardware wallets (ask a trusted, skilled computer user to help if need be, or train next of kin?). Tone Vays and Jimmy Song advise against keeping bitcoins and cash on exchanges, and against ICOs (initial coin offerings) and various ‘tokens’ and 'stable'coins. See: https://twitter.com/ToneVays/status/1298964792896557057/photo/1. And: https://medium.com/@Panama_TJ/the-ten-commandments-of-crypto-security-3cd616185d40, [According to Chainalysis, maybe a quarter of bitcoins cannot be retrieved after the holders’ deaths.

An alternative source of bitcoins is https://localbitcoins.com. To comply with new EU anti-money laundering regulations, in June 2019 Locabitcoins.com terminated their service that enabled local, peer-to-peer buying of bitcoin with fiat currency (cash). This author has not investigated these exchanges for quality, or legality. Previously, some state law enforcement agents were working with the U.S. Secret Service to arrest localbitcoins.com bitcoin sellers for violation of state anti-money laundering and money transmission laws. If states like Wyoming, Pennsylvania, and Florida rule that bitcoin is money, and the U.S. Treasury says bitcoin is money, why not tax-free money? And if the U.S. Supreme Court decides digital currency is legal tender tax exempt currency, what reparations will apply, triple damages? "Once any person would be able to use bitcoin for daily purchases, I believe that most governments will acknowledge it is a tax-free coin." Gidi Zakay, Bittax CEO.

On August 1st, 2017, bitcoin had its split into two coins, bitcoin core (BTC) and bitcoin cash (BCH). "The creation of Bitcoin Cash is what is called a 'hard fork.' The creators are releasing a completely new software that allows for eight times the number of transactions per block. This means Bitcoin Cash could process transactions faster." Bitcoin Cash is worth far less than bitcoin. "Like bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash relies on the community. It will only be successful if people decide en masse to create the blocks for the bitcoin Cash blockchain." http://www.channel4000.com.

In 2019, 90% of the ICO’s to date are either broke, exit scammed, or have no working infrastructure. “Bitcoin has a functioning immune system, altcoins do not." - @JimmySong A Microsoft study indicated trying to speed up BTC transactions by increasing the memory capacity of each block impedes the decentralization benefits, making bitcoin better than Bitcoin Cash (bcash). Remain observant. Regardless, consider staying in control of your private keys, such as with Ledger, Trezor, or KeepKey hardware wallets. Many exchanges and wallets initially refused to support BCH other than making it available to sell or transfer out, yet others provided support to trading BCH. Some referring to it as an "alt-coin," in need of further due diligence. Many bitcoin developers hate BCH, referring to it as a ripoff clone of bitcoin. The 'segregated witness" (segwit) BTC soft fork is now faster and cheaper. Those bitcoin wallet 34 character addresses start with the number 3 as opposed to the original bitcoin addresses that started with a 1. The newer 'Bech 32' “Native SegWit” address starting with bc1, with 42 characters, and has even lower fees IF the send-to wallet service supports it.
Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar competes for other fiat currency investment flows. There is some shotgunning of the digital currency market with other virtual currencies; ICOs are initial coin offerings. Analysts at Satis Group indicate only about 5% of ICOs are successful or even look like they might be, while over three quarters of ICOs are scams. See: https://deadcoins.com. They compare to 'pink sheet' penny stock fantasies. Most alt-coins white papers fantasize “Wouldn’t it be nice if…” Reality: “If wishes were horses then beggars might ride.” “Uber Angel Investor: ‘99% of Crypto Projects Are Garbage’”. @cointelegraph.com About half of them failed in 2017. Deception abounds, but there is also healthy competition as a few other currencies find their lesser niche in an ocean of capital, unless bitcoin co-opts those functions as well.

There is plenty of optimism regarding bitcoin's future, such as this excerpt from a cointelegraph.com news article:
"Over the course of 90 days, Bitcoin values grew tenfold as an economic panic set in, bringing Bitcoin national press from CNN and others as the newest of virtual safety nets. History repeated itself last summer in Greece, as Bitcoin was pushed to an annual high by the economic collapse of the island nation in the Mediterranean Sea. The 'Brexit' vote forced the British Pound to drop over 10 percent, and this market value quickly switched to Bitcoin, spiking over $100. The election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th United States President, added a quick boost to Bitcoin of almost 4 percent in one night, as the specter of Trump spooked the markets.
Can a bull-run be guaranteed? No, but we’ve seen this movie before and know how it ends. As more E.U. members implode, and as Bitcoin continues to show its intrepid strength, year after year, where would you move your money in a crisis? Bitcoin is proving to be the best play in town, regardless of what country your town resides in. Given the fact that Italy is a considerably larger economy than Greece or Cyprus - Italy is ranked fourth in the E.U. overall, behind France - it looks like it could be a very Merry Christmas for Bitcoin owners."

The XAPO CEO, Wences Casares, believes Bitcoin is the only digital currency that will survive, and it will be bigger than the internet. Xapo president Ted Rogers suggested "alt-coin" cryptocurrencies could be facing a “mass extinction event”. He previously stated, Bitcoin trading around $6,000 provides an “incredible opportunity” to buy". Their website quotes one advisor: "Lawrence H. Summers was the Secretary of the Treasury under U.S. President Bill Clinton, and continues to be one of the leading economic and policy thinkers of our time." (Redemption of a bankster?)
