Have you ever heard of cryptocurrency? Perhaps there are a few of you who may be familiar with “what its like”. I do repute for the far majority of people the answer would be what’s that?
My text book reply would be a cryptocurrency( or crypto money) is a medium of exchange utilizing cryptography to secure the transactions and to control the creation of new gangs. Cryptocurrencies are a subset of alternative monies, or specifically of digital currencies
In short-lived I may respond: You know, like a BitCoin.
The next Question I would constitute is: Now that you know what the world of cryptocurrency is and a general project how it it use my next investigate may be: In “the worlds” of cryptocurrency, how do you fit in?
In my business occupation I had the opportunity to do very well at making an attractive income on the internet. In special I have been successful in selling, advertising auctions, business development, ecommerce, technology, and online business building including the building of large online organizations.
Prior to deciding if I am going to invest, marketplace, brand, promote or own something I invest a lot of hour researching it.
In addition I surround myself with like minded mortals I refer to as either successful business associates or collaborators who have a great deal of knowledge and research on whatever “its by” we are going to promote.
My strongest inclination to stimulate something that is new and inventive that has a very strong chance to saturate the market in the future. In particular I would like to control, firebrand, circulate firstly to market a product or service that is going to be a game changer.
This would be something everyone in the future is going to desire to want, own or possess.
I have little interest in promoting something that have so far been saturated world markets. There is little opportunity for me to be first to grocery or captivate market share of products or services
I do not desire to try to market something everyone once has or are all aware of. There is then no way I can then be first to grocery as in the mind of most successful industrialists those who are first to grocery who then captivate world markets wins.
Many entrepreneur thoughts souls approach me to join them to promote items such as cell phone services, online advertise, state related produces, nutrient, ecommerce or online browse. My simple reply to these financiers is simply I am not interested.
The reason I have zero interest to promote these pieces is the market is already saturated with big-hearted actors that you are never going to be able to compete with. Those who were already first to busines have captured the market share.
This brings me to the world of cryptocurrency and cube order technology. Again if you were to approach the average individual and asked them: Have you heard of cryptocurrency the likely response would be: What’s that?
The self-evident opinion is if I were going to be first to sell, label, own or possess what would it be? The refute is simple-minded: blockage series technology and cryptocurrency.
You may ask then what is the difference between currency a.k.a. money and cryptocurrency? There are many seams of explanation or excuse we are to be able characterize the two primary variations in currency vs. cryptocurrency 😛 TAGEND
Fiat money or fiat money is fund whose cost is not is coming from any intrinsic significance or guarantee that it can be converted into a value commodity( such as gold ). Instead, it has appreciate simply by authority dictate( fiat ). Usually, the governmental forces declares the fiat money( generally indicates and silvers from a central bank, such as the Federal Reserve System in the U.S .) to be legal tender, spawning it unlawful not to accept the fiat currency as an instrument of repayment for all obligations, public and private
In regards to defining cryptocurrency I could examine all of its aspects but the main point now cryptocurrency is not fiats but preferably cryptocurrency known as a digital medium of exchange that performs same to traditional fund, but has no physical equivalent and is simply in digital form.
The firstly major cryptocurrency which started everything there is was Bitcoin in 2009 as open source, and since then a great deal of other alternative cryptocurrencies have become available thanks to the huge notoriety that Bitcoin has managed to generate.
Cryptocurrencies are in fact a formation of digital money that uses the principles of cryptography to used a distributed, decentralized and secure economy which allows you excavation and swap them.
If you were to compare cryptocurrencies to fiat money, the most notable change is in how no group or individual may influence greatly the production of coin( in the case of crypt it is called mining ), instead only any particular extent of cryptocurrency is produced by the entire cryptocurrency organisation collectively, at a rate which is bounded by a quality both prior identified and publicly known.
Now that I have offered you a very commonly used text volume edition of the differences in the two I pose the question in the world of cryptocurrency How do you fit in?
Your first question may be the same question I questioned myself. Who are the main players in the crytpocurrency grocery. My explanation would be to follow the money course, find a plaza where you fit in and capture as much cryptocurrency you can.
A true statement is the far majority of everyday parties own zero crypto-coins. Another true statement is If you were to make BitCoin as two examples as a means to capture market share of cryptocurrency you are simply too late. The vast majority of the silvers that we readily quarried in BitCoin is gone.
In order to captivate any respectful market share of the remaining silvers left to be quarried you would need to have a high degree of technology i.e. known better, server infinite, great financial support and large-scale group of people with the technical skills needed to mine the coins.
The monthly costs of a sophisticated activity of this sort nearly cancels out the best interests of the the BitCoin you are able to successfully mine.
The other action to captivate market share of BitCoins would be vast amounts of money to purchase them. Again this is simply way beyond the reach of any individual who is not already a multi-million-ere “whos had” risk capital at their jettison. Simply leant world markets for share BitCoin is gone especailly for the average person. This approach is simply not happening for you.
Fortunately for the average person who now realise just how large-scale the market is going to be and has gained an edge in profoundly experimenting cryptocurrency and brick order technology
It is however not too late for “youve got to” capture your share of the cryptocurrency marketplace!
This especially holds true for you for anyone I refer to generically as John Q Citizen who either has never heard of cryptocurrency( crypto-currency) or has no project how important is is to own cryptocurrency with a market share advantage.
If at this item you have at least made the time to have read this publication there is is some awareness on your part of either a general interest in the topic, or attention as an aspiring financier who is asking the question: How do if fit in?
If the latter evidence is chastise then you are already a gradation or two steps ahead of who I refer to as John Q Citizen.
Just for the record the deep study that I have taken has privately paid off. I have found a workaround to the whole crytpocurrency publish, which has given me an side over most of the average public. It has allowed me to be first to busines. For all those people who first to marketplace where it was acquire by quarrying large quantities of available cryptocurrency have then virtually captured market share of accessible alternative crypto-coin options available.
In another book on such matters I have discussed who are some of the big household name financier, monetary entities and conservatories who have huge awareness on information and communication technologies. In the publication I have included their direct mentions and who are already taken steps by capturing and experimenting with information and communication technologies for future implementation to captivate their market share.
In my related publication I called who is creating strategies to gain enormous wealth and advantage in the market. If you are conducting your own research this should be crystal clear
In the world of Cryptocurrency how do you fit in? I can tell you that in general 95% of the world I refer to as John Q Public shares 5% of the worlds rich. The remain of the 5% of the world( those inventors who had the awareness who made the time to experiment then took decisive action) who clearly took advantage of the shares enjoy 95% of the worlds wealth.
To finalize I ask you: Where do you see yourself in the cryptocurrency market?
Are you part of the 95% who I refer to as John Q Citizen who wasted the majority of their period on the internet socializing, playing games or heavily weighed in the latest regional gossip. The same 95% who never took the time to research the matter. The 95% who are capable of one day ultimately realise they missed out on gigantic opulence potential?
Perhaps you will see yourself as one of the 5% who experimented the matter and wishes to make deciding act required to implement a strategy.
I for one emphatically have a cryptocurrency policy in place I positioned, after deep study followed by immediate and decided action to join the 5% radical. Hopefully you are able to take the time as well.
Oh Hello everyone this is adam meister the bitcoinmeister the disrupt meister welcome to the one bitcoin show today is February the 17th 2018 strong hand people long term thinking the few the proud the 20% I want all of you to check out the links section below and check out yesterday’s this weekend Bitcoin show money tricks just set face to toe and Russell Spears were the guest and I thought we were gonna talk about some be private some privacy from Giuseppe and just some normal topics and the show turned legendary around the 17-minute mark when money Triggs we were talking about a theory I’m going a proof of stake from proof of work and if there was gonna be a split if there was gonna be a fork and money Triggs brought up something about a theorem classic and how instead of creating a third etherium that the miners could all jump onto a theorem classic now I’ve heard things like that in the past but what he specifically brought up was very exciting I mean in involved Rocketman whoo Barry Silbert I’m not gonna get into everything right now because yesterday’s show was that awesome and you can tell I’m shocked when he brings up this topic I was not ready to discuss aetherium classic he gives a very bullish scenario for aetherium classic so I know a lot of people ask me about theorem classic I usually don’t have an answer at all or it’s just like yeah something will happen eventually you know it’s all cyclical but money Triggs gives a scenario that is incredibly bullish for a theorem and he talks about some maybe why the price has already gone up because some other people have figured out what he has possibly figured out so again you’re gonna have this this show is about listening comprehension and I feel that this wicked Bitcoin show the guests that I have on are the best in the space I work hard to put these shows together you know that make sure I get different guests every week and I’m really proud of yesterday’s show so I’m not gonna summarize the whole thing right now for you I want you guys to check out I want you guys to listen to the whole thing but if you can’t see the whole thing go to the 17 minute mark if you care about the theorem classic stuff but we do talk about be private and just privacy and all sorts of other things though but but I mean there was someone who has actually been on this show before only this weekend Bitcoin showing he emailed me he said Adam that was your best this weekend Bitcoin show ever and you know will disappear and classic thing come true I’ll let you decide but it’s it was very obviously you could tell by my reaction when it happened I mean I try to learn something from these shows every time also I really do I really do you could tell I was learning something right there and then I mean he might eat Riggs I mean you rocked it Giuseppe and Russell were great also and they stay straight up said that money tricks was the you know the master huh so for what he said with your theorem classic check out yesterday’s show also obviously check out all the links below if you want to get a treasure ledger nano at a crypto h/w wallet comm or use my affiliate link to get directly from tresor cryptography d has nice t-shirts to use the moisture discount code and of course i am coming to you from it’s it’s nighttime here in or Darwin australia it’s late i want to go to sleep for after this at night it’s been a long long day but it’s just the morning for you guys on the east coast so pound that that like button as we as we say seriously remember to subscribe to the channel and share this video to man share yesterday’s video it’s gonna help a lot of people i mean and again if a lot of people aren’t gonna watch it then find then it’ll just be the smart 20 percenters who benefit that’s who benefits from my might the stuff I talk about here I don’t we don’t bring up the common stuff here or I don’t bring up the common stuff we’re trying to get people some 20% knowledge and you know that there you go it’s a long-term thinking channel and that’s not gonna that’s not gonna appeal to the masses and that’s tough luck the masses aren’t going to learn what money Tregs taught us yesterday so again follow me on Twitter at Tech ball tch be alt and bitcoinmeister on steam it so i speaking of twitter it was pointed out i think toward a Meester pointing this out that the twitter handle crypto c ry pto i mean that’s a great twitter to hand handle to have is owned by bloomberg they call it bloomberg crypto a look at how crypto currencies and blockchain are reshaping our world from bloomberg well mike my lord that they had to pay for that I would assume they didn’t haven’t owned it all this time it just shows you the mainstream acceptance is they’re prepared for a man if they own the Twitter the Twitter handle crypto that means Bloomberg financial I mean they think a lot of cryptocurrency they know what the future is I thought that was a really bullish sign for cryptocurrency in Bitcoin sure speaking about long-term thinking everyone knows I always talk about the big point having it’s going to happen now apparently in June of 2020 and before that is the light point having in 2019 the lake point is is very popular but it’s nowhere near that the name recognition is determine okay so when people start talking about that light point having it will help hype the Bitcoin having which will be a less than a year afterwards but what I started to think about is that all of the Bitcoin crypto dividends that have come out the small ones that no one cares about the medium-sized ones that the friendly ones like be gold and the unfriendly one and then there be the friendly be private the unfriendly ones like be – they’re having x’ will all take place in 2020 okay if they’re gonna have you know some of them are a little different age so it’s got a little different story whatever but be cash having having in particular is going to happen before the bitcoin having and they’re pretty centralized at be cash now litecoin is not centralized so they might not have a campaign where they’re hyping up their litecoin having but the beat if the be cash people um you know king of the trolls and everyone over there if they have a campaign to pump the price of be cash leading up to the be cash having in early in 2020 i guess it’s going to be they’re spreading the word about a having educating the people on what having is there they spend a lot of money on who knows without they’re willing to do bitcoin calm which they own that will that will help their price that will educate the people but it will also pipe bitcoin it will be the opening salvo in the bitcoin having hype so if they choose to go that direction they’re going to start the having hype for bitcoin and again i lived through the having hype for 2016 which double the price of a Bitcoin from you know about March to June of 2016 and it didn’t have a centralized entity talking about having so this the be cash people if they go that direction they’re gonna they’re gonna help themselves but they’re also gonna help spread the word about the bitcoin having and all these other covenants also going to add to the education about the having which all leads to the big core the major hat having the biggest of them all the granddaddy of them all the rock of them all is the bitcoin having so the more height they I don’t care where the Heights coming from okay if is coming from be cash be gold be private wherever the more height the merrier to get people to give people knowledge about what’s gonna happen with Bitcoin so down below there is a Bitcoin Bitcoin block half calm it’s the it’s the clock the countdown to the Bitcoin having clock at all you can follow be cash does not have a site like this yet I assume they will I look for maybe they do but I could not find one so I don’t know the exact date there’s is going to be but in my search for the be cash having having clock I did find a site that I linked below that says there will be a protocol update for be cash on May 15th and then something on November 15th also but that May 15th having a date like that that’ll probably be around the next time be cash pumps so keep that if you’re a be cash holder of your be cash fan whatever May 15th there’s a day they’ve already got written down there so expect some be cash hype then that’s that’s urgent be cash here we go Alex told me he has freed out there and because it’s all cyclical be cash well as I have said he cash will pump again you know there’s always going to be beat every year there’s gonna be some sort of B pump we just had one up a few days ago when I got up this point one six right did get at the point point two it’ll get there again maybe the May fifteenth one but okay Alistair will me he’s got a tweed out there people talk about blockchain while they pitched their altcoin projects in reality only Bitcoin can be considered everyone else will still be stuck on blockchain for a while yet yeah I thought that was a great point I that’s that’s very good everybody’s trying to throw around these terms blockchain there the blockchain no way bitcoins more advanced than all of them bitcoins up gone through the scaling issues they haven’t even gone through the wars yet settle everyone else will still be stuck on blockchain for what I mean they’re already building you know second level solutions we’ll talk with big plan you know with Lightning Network and everything so on that’s linked to below that tweet also linked to below in two minutes and 17 seconds the Back to the Future I co sold out Simon Dixon said and it was thirty three million dollars they raised in to two minutes and 17 seconds but to to our I don’t even know I it’s to say I can I don’t know if I were that that was a two minutes and 17 seconds to hours of something minutes the point is they raise thirty three million dollars really fast assignment Dixon’s been a guest from the show you all love Simon Dixon I’m not a big ICO fan obviously but he wanted to raise some money that’s his business I’m late to the tweet that mentions that and the link to the tweet of a photo of the back of Simon Dixon’s head where he had them carve into his hair the bank to the future symbol yes I’m serious about that you can look at that photo the back of his hair as he banked to the future thing carved symbol carved into it now it reminds me like what my barber wanted to do to the back of my head when I was like 14 years old he wanted to put my number of my soccer number all carved in the back I had my mom was with me alright so a good job Simon Dickson you did something I always wanted to do at least as a 14 year old I won so anyway what else we have here fork drop do they have an update they added the alt point forks and so I linked I link to that below the old coin crypto dividends like Manero V and something else low I guess oh gosh I don’t know check them out though they’re there they mentioned me in their tweets so I mentioned them here good job for drop I owe all right some of you have experiences with coinbase coinbase double charged some people and that it wasn’t their fault they said they issued a joint statement from visa and world pay for coinbase customers explaining that that the double charges will be removed by Visa and WorldPay okay good coin based trying to fix something that didn’t go well for them there found that like button everyone if you’re still watching this here we got like oh we got a good amount of viewers there Chloe was it’s late it’s close to 100 it was so let’s see what else do we have Shane oh yeah a cast a cast is where you can get the it’s linked to below the world crypto Network podcast and I’m part of I I did a little experiment the one I linked to below if you play at the 2x speed it’s pretty funny you know listening to me a 2x go really fast it definitely sounds like I’m on drugs if you played it if you play the 2x it’s pretty funny and I got definitely a guy you can make fun of myself so it’s it’s pretty hilarious to listen to me at 2x but it just hurt for everyone that wants to get these podcasts oh it’s great that we have a guy over there Cory putting everything on on podcast for us and people are discovering the world crypto Network and all of the people involved with it through that and it’s it’s growing so check out you can check that out without being on YouTube and he Cory’s working real hard on making this great for everyone so that’s linked to below a cast play that double-speed to hear your favorite World Cup Network personalities on crack cocaine all right and don’t worry to my knowledge I know I don’t do it I doubt any hope so uh here we go there’s a tweet out there and I’m gonna change though it’s from Matthew D Greene and I it was thought-provoking I don’t agree with the exact words that he said so I’ll read out his words and then I’ll give you my words since almost nobody uses cryptocurrency for payments yet they get speculated on and that said the existence of a large and technically uninformed community becomes the main determinant of value now what I would say is that since almost nobody uses altcoins for anything yet they did speculated on and in that setting the existence of a large and technology technologically uninformed community becomes the main determining of value for the altcoins I don’t know if he meant to include you know he said cryptocurrency I don’t think that’s true for big point that doesn’t determine its value from the altcoins yes it is all speculation and it’s all and it’s by 80% horses by people who don’t know who just read a little bit about but it don’t really care it may be not that sounds cool it’s the next big thing I gotta jump into it all right Bobby and just so we you know really read the tweet for yourself it’s linked to below you can decide on your own you can think about it it’s thought-provoking it’s what the show is it’s a thought-provoking show all right Bobby a left the comment and I was an inspirational comment I was thinking about how different the world was just 20 years ago no global war on terrorism very few people had cell phones Amazon was just a bookseller Google does barely started and Facebook one meet wouldn’t even exist for another five years if you could go back to 1998 and tell people everything that would happen they wouldn’t believe you keep that in mind when people laugh at the idea of crypto currencies or other drastic changes for that matter yeah I thought I thought that was awesome dude I thought that was awesome how we went back in time now tried to explain to them crypto currencies they were they wouldn’t believe it at all so imagine you know ten years from now what’ll be going on we wouldn’t we’re not gonna be a we can’t grasp how what’s going to going on in ten years and I think a lot of the reason people still can’t Brett grass Bitcoin is because it is something it is something from ten years in the future it’s not from four years in the few it’s just something that we can’t grasp because it is totally new and it is going to be much bigger in the future so III do like to think that I love progress I love freakin progress and technology so I mean I remember 1998 I thought it was cool that I did it there was a o L and I thought that was cool people who did Internet in their house and you know that was just I thought such a futuristic time when I was little B in 1998 now you look back and you see oh my lord that was nothing that was just nothing compared to what we’re going through now so on that and that’s just the positive part of life man you’ve got to keep on going that’s why you want to stay healthy and live as long as possible just to see the innovations and to you know be a part of the innovations and it’s great to be a part of this Bitcoin innovation and to have the long-term thinking where you know if you get in now you get into patiently now you have patience you understand that it’s a growing ecosystem that in the long run it’s gonna pay off just to to to unbelievably an unbelievable level and just the positivity that it’s going to generate for this world it’s just it’s very inspirational very inspirational when I think of things like that all right so have a strong hand people pound that like button with that strong hand i’m adam meister the bitcoinmeister the disrupt meister remember to subscribe to this channel like this video share this video check out the notes section below I’ll say hiding guys before I go to sleep and check out yesterday’s video bye bye
– Hey, what up, world? It’s your boy Ian. Welcome to Hacking the System. Show where I teach you how to make six figures in your 20s, yeah your 20s. Who said making six figures has to wait until your old and grumpy? In today’s show, we’re gonna talk about something that’s about to blow up, and I mean blow up. We’re here on the diamond field playing baseball, well, not really, but today’s show, I’m gonna show you you can possibly, possibly, hit a home-run investing in something that’s on the up and up. Today’s show will cover Bitcoin, Ethereum and cryptocurrencies and how they could possibly make you a millionaire. In your 20s? Let’s get into it. (hip hop music) Hey, what up, world. It’s your boy, the made man. Welcome to Hacking the System. The show where I teach you how to make six figures by any means necessary while you’re still young. Create the lifestyle of your dreams and hustle to greatness. All right, so in today’s show talking about Bitcoin, Ethereum, altcoins, cryptocurrencies in general and how they could possibly make you a millionaire. I know that may seem like an exaggeration, because I’m definitely not a millionaire, but the potential is there.
So if the potential is there and you’re out there trying to chase the money like us, right? We gotta go break it down and show how we could possibly do it. So let’s start things off with a story. All right, there was this guy who was doing his thesis in graduate school on cryptography. So he got intrigued by Bitcoin and blockchains in general. All right, for those who don’t know, blockchain is the technology underlying Bitcoin and that makes it work. All right, it basically leverages cryptography. So he’d gotten really, really intrigued with this. And he just tossed his money on the side and bought some Bitcoin. He bought $27 wort of Bitcoin. That was sometime back, right. Fast forward three years later, three years later, he completely forgot about his investment. He forgot about his $27 investment. So three years later, Bitcoin is basically in the news, it’s blowing up. It’s trending, it’s peaking. He’s like, yo, I bought some Bitcoin a while back, let me check up on it. All right, so he goes to check his Bitcoin wallet to see how much money he has and in three years, in three years, it went from being worth $27 to $886,000.
Yeah, almost $1 million in three years. His $27 because Bitcoin went from being worth pennies on the dollar to right now being worth over $1,200 for one Bitcoin. All right, so Bitcoin is blowing up, baby. All right, so don’t miss this boat. If you missed it, I’ll show how you can definitely leverage it and other cryptocurrencies. All right, so why is there lots and lots of hype around Bitcoin, Ethereum, and cryptocurrencies in general? Well, Bitcoin was the best performing currency in 2016.
It surpassed gold and any other body out there like dollar, yen, whatever, right? It was the best performing currency. Just think about that for a second. How many currencies do we have out there in the world? The world is humongous, all right? But Bitcoin was the best performing currency in 2016. It went up 120% in 2016. Basically meaning that it more than doubled the money if you had bought Bitcoin in 2016. Then on the other hand, Ethereum is blowing up as well. Actually, blowing up a lot more than Bitcoin itself. I got involved in this whole cryptocurrency game sometime around November, December last year in 2016. And I was like, you know what, this seems kind of trendy ’cause my friend told me about it. So I tossed some money at it. And I recall that Ethereum at that point around November, December was only worth $10.
Fast forward to February, March, Ethereum is at $40. So it quadrupled in value in about three months. All right, so my best trade to date, my best investment to date in terms of cryptocurrencies is actually Ethereum. I put in about $2,500 in it. And about three months, in basically a month or so actually ’cause last couple months have been kind of stagnating. But in basically a month, I doubled my money. From 2,500 to over $5,000. All right, so all these currencies are trending because they’re blowing up, they’re getting attention. They aren’t mainstream yet, so right there’s still definitely time to catch the gold rush. ‘Cause this right here is a gold rush, baby.
All right, so to start things off, we’ll first talk about what is Bitcoin, what is Ethereum, and what are altcoins and cryptocurrencies in general? All right, what is Bitcoin? To keep things simple, Bitcoin is a decentralized digital currency. Right, so similar to how we have cash, we have the dollar, or what have you, right, we have different currencies. The dollar, the yen, right, Bitcoin is a digital currency. But what makes it different, though is it’s decentralized. There is no central authority. There is no bank, there is no government that controls it. It’s peer to peer. So similar to how Bitcoin operates, right, if you ever download anything from Bit Torrent to way back in the day with Napster, right, Napster and the whole time with the illegal pirating craze, everything was peer to peer.
Right, because of that, there is no central point of failure when it comes to Bitcoin. All right, imagine having different people across the world being able to talk with each other and send money without having to depend on a bank, on the government, right, there is no middle man. Everything is peer to peer. You’re directly talking with the other person and making a transaction. This happens because of such technology called blockchain. This basically leverages cryptography. Meaning that it makes it so that you cannot really hack it, per se, right, so nobody can really spy on it.
It’s very, very secure, right. So me and you can make a transaction without having to go to the bank. And because of that, there is no middle man. Freeing us. Then on the other hand, we have a different currency and platform called Ethereum. Right, this is kind of the second biggest currency or platform out there. Ethereum is a decentralized distributed computing platform. What does that mean? So think of that as basically using peer to peer virtual computing.
That’s kind of the best analogy I can think of. So think of Ethereum as a platform that allows you to be applications, that allows you to build peer to peer applications. So think of build supercomputer that is decentralized, there is no central computer. Everything’s peer to to peer. So imagine everybody around the world pulling their computer powers together to make one supercomputer, one platform that you can run different applications on and these applications are called smart contracts. So what does that exactly mean? So Ethereum you could have not just currencies, right, ’cause currency for Ethereum is called Ether, but you can have smart contracts for thing such as trading coffee, for trading wheat. Anything of value between two parties and they want to transact with each other, they can doing that on this platform called Ethereum. And one of those ways is Ether, which is the currency.
All right, what are altcoins? For anything out there that’s not Bitcoin in terms of the cryptocurrency world is referred to as an altcoin. Short for alternative coins. All right so why do Bitcoin, Ethereum, and cryptocurrencies in general really matter? What makes them valuable? The first point is they’re centralized. I keep stressing that because it means that there is no central single point of failure. The government can’t come out there and control it. There is no one central authority or body that controls it. Meaning that everybody can do what they want whenever they want. It’s kind of like the wild, wild west. All right, so, which is both good and bad, right? Because good in the sense that countries out there that have oppression or different people that can seize their bank accounts don’t really have to bother with that, because Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general give them independence from that. Because there is no one one single point of failure, nobody can shut it down. The government can’t come in here and say, you know what, we don’t like how you’re transacting business, let’s shut this down. Perfect example is Bitcoin back in the day, back in the heyday, got popular because people were using it on a platform called Silk Road.
All right, it could transact and buy illegal goods on this platform, which is basically the Dark Web the Dark Net. They could buy illegal goods with it, and not really leave any trace, because the government couldn’t track it. So that’s how Bitcoin can I have kind of got its initial growth. But the government came and shut down the Dark Web for Silk Rroad, but it couldn’t shut down Bitcoin, because Bitcoin has no central authority. It’s peer to peer. So imagine kind of like bitron, if you take down one computer, you can’t shut down the entire network. This becomes important because you own Bitcoin. It’s not owned by the bank, your country, the government or a different authority You own it. It is yours. As a result, nobody can seize it from you unless you lose your wallet, which we won’t cover today, but, so for example, back in I think around 2013 or so, there was the whole economy bailouts, countries were collapsing, and Cypress was one of those countries. Cypress, the government Cypress, as a way to bail out the country and try to reestablish a reboost to the economy, they went after and they wanted to seize assets in people’s bank accounts.
Just think about that for a second. The government wanted to go to people’s bank accounts, take out their money and redistribute that money out there. As a way to revitalize the economy. So people got scared, man, they got really, really scared. And that’s when Bitcoin began to grow. So they took money from their bank accounts because they knew the government could come and seize those assets. And they put that almost away like an off-shore account. They used Bitcoin as a way to hide the money from the government, or store the money in, not really hide it but protect their money from the government and other third parties who would try to seize that money. Bitcoin also matters in the sense that it’s similar to gold. All right, in the sense that it’s scarce, it’s rare. All right, ’cause as opposed to fiat currencies like the dollar and all these other paper currencies that are no longer tied to the gold standard, they lose value by the minute, by the day. All right, every time you print out more fiat currency, more paper money to boost the economy, all right, it’s losing value because it’s basically almost infinite.
With Bitcoin is similar to gold in the sense that they’re only 21 million Bitcoins out there that could be ever be mined. As a result, it’s scarce, giving it value. Another selling point for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other cryptocurrencies is that they’re global and borderless with low transaction fees. Meaning that me right here in America, I can send money to anybody around the world very, very quickly, all right, faster than sending money with other platforms like Western Union. On top of that, they have lower transaction fees. So, for example, Bitcoins could be used as a replacement for Western Union and sending money abroad to help out family members or other friends. Because the transaction fees are very, very low.
And money can be very instant. Because right now with the current banking system, it’s very hard to send like, for example, a $1 million out there across the world. It’s actually easier, a lot easier, to get on a plane with a suitcase of money and transfer that money because money usually takes about three to five business days, sometimes even longer, depending where you are. All right, with Bitcoin, it can take anywhere from 10 minutes to half an hour. All right, so it’s very, very fast to send large amounts of money, and very, very low transaction fees. All right, cause when I send money to somebody via Bitcoin, there actually is no transaction fee. There’s only a transaction fee when you try to take the money out, and that fee is very low. And one of the main ways that makes Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and Ethereum and all such matter is they help store value. So earlier I mentioned how in Cypress, people who were afraid of the government seizing their assets were able to store the value of their money in Bitcoin.
So, for example, the same thing is happening in China right now as we speak, ’cause China is communist country. And people, Chinese are in droves in terms of the rich Chinese, they’re sending their money to Bitcoin, Ethereum, and these other cryptocurrencies as a way to store the value from either unstable currencies or from the government. So, for example, if you have a currency kind of like down in South America and Argentina, right, they’re using Bitcoin to store the value ’cause their currency fluctuates up and down to a point where they can’t really, they have no idea where their currency stands at any given point in time, ’cause it’s so volatile. So they use Bitcoin as a way to store the value. All right, so how can Bitcoin and all these other cryptocurrencies make you a millionaire? First thing I’ll say is, I’m definitely not a financial advisor. This is infotainment. Right, but I myself am actually invested in all these cryptocurrencies, right, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and some more altcoins. But in general, right, so back in 2011, if you invested $100 in Bitcoin, at this current point in time in 2017, your $100 investment would be valued at almost $400,000.
Just think about that for a second. $100 to 400 grand in basically six years. Like, imagine if you put a lot more into it. Because me right now, I have over 10 grand in it. All right, so I’m definitely playing the long game. I’m definitely going for that home run, right? I’m trying to swing outside the fence. So Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies is basically a way to speculate on the future in terms of the economy, the world economy, currencies, because right now if you get in early, you could possibly make a killing in it. And, as I mentioned earlier, reason being is other currencies out there are losing value, which is why Bitcoin was the best performing currency of last year in 2016. All right, so fiat currencies lost a lot of value in the sense that they’re no longer backed by the gold standard.
Meaning that for every $1, for example, it’s tied to one equal dollar worth of gold. ‘Cause back in the early, I think like the, in the 20th century, right? If you took your money, you could exchange that for gold in its equal form. But at this point in time, it’s no longer backed by gold. As a result, it gave the government of America and other countries the ability to print as much money as they like. Print as much paper money as they like, ’cause it was no longer tied to gold. So they could just go out there and print a $1 billion and not have $1 billion worth of gold to back that up. As a result, the value decreased. And so, in general, cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are getting lots and lots of attention because big companies now are paying attention to them. They’re backing them. So, for example, my employer, IBM is going in on blockchain, the technology, the underlying technology that makes Bitcoin and all these other cryptocurrencies possible. They started a high pillager foundation, which is basically a blockchain foundation.
And then recently this year, JP Morgan and Microsoft founded their own Ethereum foundation. That’s why Ethereum blew up in the last three months or so and went up from $10 to $40, because big companies are paying attention and giving this that stamp of approval. So anybody out there who’s kind of hesitant to take a look at these cryptocurrencies or check them out, if Microsoft, IBM, JP Morgan are willing to take a gamble on these currencies, maybe you should too as well. Right, maybe you should also take a chance, a gamble, a fly on them. Because this could be your million-dollar move. Another point I’ll make is, Bitcoin could be a possible replacement for gold. Yeah, gold. ‘Cause recently, Bitcoin is now worth, one Bitcoin is worth more than one ounce of gold. One ounce of gold is worth, is worth less than one Bitcoin. So Bitcoin could be a possible replacement to store value as opposed to storing it in gold. So if you have a bunch of money, right, and you want to store it in something else besides gold, silver, you could store it in Bitcoin.
Which is what the the Chinese are doing, and other people in unstable economies with unstable currencies, they’re using these cryptocurrencies as way to store value. All right, so you’re saying, hey, Ian, yeah got me hyped, super hyped, I’m definitely down to invest some money on cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, what have you, where do I start? How do I start? So the first step to start, especially if you’re a beginner, is a site called Coin Base. This makes it very, very easy for anybody out there to buy and sell cryptocurrencies. This was meant for beginners. All right, so if you go to coinbase.com and create an account, you can verify your account, tie it up, link it up to your bank account and buy money, and buy crypto, and buy basically Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin. Those are the three currencies they have on there. The three cryptocurrencies they have. You can purchase them either with your bank, with your debit card and tie it to your bank account, or a credit card even.
All right, but one thing about Coin Base, though, is it has higher transaction fees than normal Bitcoin or cryptocurrency sites ’cause it’s meant for newbies. But with that being said, though, it’s very, very user friendly. It’s how I began my journey in cryptocurrencies, and it’s a great place to start. Now, one thing to note is if you actually go on my website and sign up using my link, right, you and I will both get $10 worth of Bitcoin cryptocurrencies in terms of Bitcoin, Litecoin, what have you, to invest, if you invest $100.
All right, so let me say that again. So if you want to start and you want to put $100 into it, Coin Base as a way to kind of entice you to learn the system and get more involved, they’ll give you $10 as well. But to do that, you have to sign up using my affiliate link, all right. So if you sign up using my link, my affiliate link, you and I both get $10.
What a deal, right? All right, so let’s say you aren’t really a beginner, and maybe you’ve done investing before and you don’t want something that’s super easy. Maybe you want to day trade, for example. All right, two good platforms for day trading are GDAX, which is an exchange owned by Coin Base. It’s kind of for more advanced people. And also Gemini. These two are basically exchanges that let you day trade cryptocurrencies. And mainly just the popular ones like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. All right, so if you want to day trade, you can use those platforms. They’re better than Coin Base in the sense that you have a lot more control. You can do things such as stop limit orders. They also have fewer transaction fees. Much, much, lower transaction fees. But it’s kind of more complex. You have to have some kind of experience investing.
So I would recommends using something like Coin Base to start. Using that as training wheels. Then go on GDAX or Gemini and use that as a way to kind of once you’ve mastered or gotten the handle on things to start doing a lot more complicated things, more complex things. Now, so we’ve talked about Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the main two currencies out there, the two main cryptocurrencies, but there are over 100 cryptocurrencies out there, over 100. And new currencies are coming up every single day.
And actually I think it’s a lot more profitable to find the smaller currencies because they have a lot more growth potential. ‘Cause Bitcoin has gone from being worth pennies to being worth $1,200. So in terms of growth potential, it could go to 2,000. It could go to $10,000. Even $5,000, but it’s gonna get there a lot slower than these currencies right now that are in the pennies on the dollar. All right, so think of altcoins, alternative coins as similar to trading penny stocks. All right so for those who have done investing before, penny stocks are basically stocks worth under $1 or so. Right, almost pen as, that you can buy very, very cheap, and if they go up, they can double just like that. All right, so for example, recently, I doubled my money with Ripple, which is a cryptocurrency as well, but this is used more for banking. ‘Cause it was worth very, very, it was worth in the pennies on the dollar. And when they go up two pennies, maybe if it’s 50 cents it goes to $1.
You can double your money like that. So in general if you want to trade altcoins, the exchange I use is called Poloniex. Don’t know how to pronounce it. I just call it Polo for short, right? (laughs) But if you go to Poloniex, Polo, right, they have tons and tons of cryptocurrencies out there, tons of them. From Stratis to Ripple to Decred, right, not every currency, but the popular ones out there that you want to invest in and leverage and make profit on are available on Polo. All right, as opposed to going to Coin Base, GDAX, and Gemini because they only cater to the top three currencies, the top three cryptocurrencies. Everything else, the altcoins, I would go to Polo and find them there, all right? But one thing to notice, Polo won’t let you buy anything without fiat money. So you can’t buy with dollars. It’s only an exchange, you can only exchange money. And their standard universal currency is Bitcoin. So why I do is I buy my money, I mean, I get my bank account and buy Bitcoin or Ethereum, but generally Bitcoin because it’s a lot easier to work with.
I buy Bitcoin on GDAX, then I transfer that to my Bitcoin wallet on Polo, and I use that to trade and make day trades and moving in and out of different currencies. Then once you’re done, you cash out from that currency converting back to Bitcoin. Then from Bitcoin, you’re sending that Bitcoin back to GDAX, and you cash out. So, it’s kind of complex, it’s kind of a round about way of doing thing. It definitely adds a barrier of entry, but that barrier of entry makes is a lot profitable to make money, ’cause not everybody’s making money with it. Right, but sometimes you don’t even have to cash out.
All right, so, for example, recently I sold a portion of my investment to transfer that money to a off-shore bookie so I could gamble on March Madness with Bitcoin. And the casino, the online broker, I mean the online bookie accepts Bitcoin, which was pretty cool, right, ’cause a lot faster to send my Bitcoin from Polo or GDAX as as opposed to calling them or tying my credit card to that. It kind of give me that, it makes it fluid. And it’s kind of anonymous, kind of anonymous. I say that because all these exchanges nowadays force you to verify your account, your information in terms of your bank account, our I.D., where you live, all that. All right, so it’s not truly anonymous. But if you were dealing with just anybody out there, peer to peer, you can be anonymous. ‘Cause that’s what cryptocurrencies left you achieve. All right, so I gave you guys a lot of game. If you want to do anyway further study or research on cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum and altcoins, a good place to start that I recommend is to check out a book called Digital Gold.
This is one of the best books I’ve read on Bitcoin. And it basically walks you through the starting of Bitcoin from the founder, all right, in Japan, all the way through the history of the major key players and the history of Bitcoin and how it grew. And it also shares the story and talks about how people became millionaire with Bitcoin. All right, so it’s a very, very great story. Check out the book, Digital Gold. I’ll have the link available on my website and I also put it in the video as well. All right, I’ve given you guys a lot of game, I mean a ton of game. All right, and you guys, I’ve showed you how it’s possible to go out there and possibly become a millionaire. All right, just to kind of be candid with you guys, I myself I right now have about $10,500 invested in cryptocurrencies. Right, and I began investing around end of November, early December, or so.
And I didn’t start early. I didn’t just go out there and put in 10 grand, right, I began small. So I first begun things off with $100 in Bitcoin and $100 in Ethereum. So I took a flier on it. I was like, here, you know what, let me just throw 200 bucks at it and see what happens. And I noticed, hey, I’m up about 25% in a month. Not bad, right? So I put about 250 more dollars each in both Ethereum and Bitcoin again to see how things were going. Then I noticed, I was like hey, you know what? I just doubled my money because Ethereum went from $10 to $20 in about 2 months. I’m like not bad, right? Then I saw Ethereum was taking off, I came back, put in $2,500 in Ethereum, and $2,500 in Bitcoin. And Ethereum doubled in about a month and a half. My $2,500 went from being $2,500 to over five grand. To a point I actually sold that off at about $5,500 bucks.
So I more than doubled my money in a bit a month and a half. Then from there I had to kind of learn the ropes. I then moved from money from GDAX to Polo. Because with Polo could do a lot more day trading, a lot more trading with altcoins. All right, so right now, my portfolio, because I don’t want to seem like I’m making money like that, because I ain’t got it like that, but the potential is there. My initial investment of 10,500 is now worth about $13,000 give or take. All right, some profits, some losses, right, but that’s been in about three months or so, so it’s not bad. But right now, the last couple months growth has slowed down, mainly being because Bitcoin is going through a major scalability issue.
I don’t know if you guys have heard about this. You can do your own research on this. It’s too in-depth for this video. This is meant for beginners. But Bitcoin is thinking about doing a split. Basically splitting the currency and doing a hard fork. Something called Segwit and Bitcoin Unlimited. So once this whole debate has been resolved, then Bitcoin I think is gonna take off and continue to take off. Because right now it’s been kind of stagnant. So that being said, I’ve given you guys a lot of game. Go out there and check it out.
Let me know what you guys think. I’ll be dropping a end of blog post on my website explaining a lot more about how to possibly become a millionaire with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general. With that being said, though, I am definitely, definitely not a financial advisors, right, this is not financial advice. This is infotainment. Invest at your own risk, at your own peril. But with that being said, though, let’s get this money. Peace. All right, it’s a wrap. Thanks for checking out the show. Make sure to give it like. Subscribe and drop a comment and review. Check out my website where I drop game every single week. Check me out on social media, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat. Let’s go out there, make this money. Hustle to greatness..
Hello everyone this is adam meister the bitcoinmeister the disrupt meister welcome to the one it coins show today is december the 27th 2017 strong hand this is your home of crypto dividend news and we have a lot of that today and yeah it is 328 in the morning on the East Coast I’m back here in Baltimore it is cold I want to go to a warm place again like right now but hey you got to deal with it and so this is the official December 27 show maybe it will have another one much later in the day check out the links below if you want to see the shows of the past including the one that I did from the airport a few hours ago whatever it was back in back in Tucson also you can get t-shirts treasurer ledger nano crypto hwy comm this districts from my buddy in Australia though he’s sending some more he said thanks a lot dudes dude alright so let’s just jump into something that I forgot to mention in the show before the one I did earlier the five minute show that was about Z classic so um from Monday this is in repent and land you guys remember ran he hosts the CNBC crypto currency show in South Africa and he was talking about Bitcoin dominance going down and you know we’ve all heard that before but I had the reply and your RAM is a good guy he likes to stir things up a bit though and this is what I wrote times are checking he said times are changing that you know business bitcoins dominance is going down Oh times are changing and I said times are changing this is the same this same thing happened in the spring during the now forgotten it cerium hype the big difference is that the strong handed long-term thinkers who did not panic then and fall for the hype are now Bitcoin millionaires so again we’ve been through this before the people who didn’t fall for it last time who just held onto their Bitcoin are doing really really well so I link to that below and I that was supposed to be in my last video but I totally left that out because that I’d go through this when I read off you’re pretty fast sometimes anyway we’re back at like 16,000 16,000 dollars for Bitcoin right now I believe so whatever you know you could worry about Bitcoin dominance you can worry about whatever you want to Bitcoin is doing just fine and dandy it’s sixteen thousand dollars it’s I mean if you if you would have said that during the spring etherium pump people would have said you’re out of your mind and this is only like seven months ago okay so something I forgot from the show that I did earlier the Z classic oriented show that I did from the airport because Z classic is forking into this Bitcoin prior or be private crypto dividend this is really big news and you’re not really hearing about it and many other places I covered it really intensely in that previous video you gotta watch that and I say some things in that video that I usually don’t talk about and I’m gonna say something in this video that I usually don’t say either um but but it has to be said about this situation first of all the thing that I forgot is that this crypto dividend is the first fork with a community already in place from an established altcoin so we’re they’re forming this be be private now usually when these crypto dividends are formed there’s no community already like when they form be gold it wasn’t like there was a magical be gold community it already existed beforehand but by forming be private from from Z classic and and then everyone in Bitcoin also getting the be private you’ve got to establish Z classic on community already there and that really adds a unique aspect to the the possible marketing of it and just how pop have a word will be spread I mean they’ve already got a community that’s going to be height because this is taking the place be private is taking the place of Z classic I know it seems a little confusing you got to check out the links below you got to check out my previous video all right and I know some people are gonna say well bit core or how to commute okay that’s let’s not it’s neither here nor there let’s not worry about big Court right now um anyway uh yeah check out that link below and here I have to say a full I have to give full transparency here so I have a lot of Bitcoin I mean everyone knows that and I want more Bitcoin and I also have be – I have some be cash left because you know I had so much Bitcoin I got a lot of freebie cash anyway after I made the video earlier today about Z classic after I made the video about Z custom because in the video I say a couple of things but after I made the video about Z classic I actually used some of my leftover B cash and I traded it in for Z classic so I now have Z classic so that has to have to put that out there right now and it has surged so much today that I’ve already I’ve already covered some of the initial expenses if you want to say that yeah anyway I can’t afford to being a speculator okay in that sense I said in the in the previous video that this is a good speculation and when I call something a speculation I it’s something that if you have a lot of Bitcoin already or if you have a lot of money not Bitcoin because I didn’t use Bitcoin unless I used be cash on this okay but if you’re well off in the cryptocurrency world or you’re just a well-off person and you can afford to lose everything that you put into a speculation well this is a good speculation because this Z classic could go up by quite a lot and I in the video earlier today I go over the the logical reasons why it could go up because this is a crypto dividend this is it’s it’s a very unique situation here so again the goal is to get more Bitcoin from crypto dividends that has always been my goal this is a detour on that road because again I got the freebie cash but I have now turned the be cast instead of directly turning some of my be cash into into Bitcoin I have turned some of it into Z classic which I will then turn into Bitcoin eventually and hey it might not work out a there’s there’s definitely a risk so do not try this at home but again if you are I mean I’m I’m in a different situation than a lot of people and but I do have to put that out there because I have a lot of Bitcoin I mean that’s this is known this is known of trying to get more you never stop trying to get more pound that like button always try to get increased value your wealth in Bitcoin so yeah I’ll keep everybody updated on this on the Z classic situation which is really a be private situation and again people want free crypto dividends okay be private is an interesting crypto dividend you gotta admit you can buy one Bitcoin and get one free be private or you can buy one Z classic and get one free be private so again and this is if they go through with the for two because there’s risk maybe they won’t go through the work we had we have seen you know there’s a lot of big talkers out there in the crypto dividend space and only be gold to be cash have done it so far but anyway so you have those two options of get how are you gonna get your one be private you know which route will most people likely choose okay they’re not gonna buy a whole Bitcoin to get a be private don’t get up don’t be like what the heck I want a free Bitcoin crypto dividend why don’t I just buy the Z classic thingamajig and it’s really cheap right now it’s $20 $10 a it was it was $10 earlier today they got the 30 bucks which is I can’t amazing anyway anyway Zee classic is the shortcut to getting a Bitcoin crypto dividend also keep in mind that there are only one point eight million Zee classics in existence okay so if there’s only one point eight million Zee classics and people all of a sudden want to get this crypto dividend that’s coming from it well they’re not that many Zee classics to buy we’re supplying a demand thing here another thing to take into account is that Zee classic is basically just Zee cash okay I’m not gonna get into the details Zee cash sells for a five hundred seventy one dollars right now crypto dividends of Bitcoin at you know these a lot these theorized ones that people were talking about all these cheap Chinese knockoffs they they make fun of them because they’re all coming from China well if you look at the futures markets for all of the proposed ones out there all of them are over 1% of a Bitcoin in the futures market so we’re talking $160 here so I mean I I’m throwing out all these numbers because this be private I mean it could be $160 it could be $571 it could be a lot more then Z classic is right now so that is why I think this is a good and interesting speculation why I think people are buying Z classic right now because it’s it’s 15 bucks and they’re gonna be able to get something for three that might be $160 or might be more than that and again the Z classic developers are saying that be private is a replacement of Z classic it’s it’s a replacement of Z classic okay and so it has and Z classic already has a purpose okay Z classic so B prime B private isn’t just being made up like you know super BTC what is the what is the purpose of super BTC I mean it might do well for all I know but what’s really is they give all these little gimmicks well be private is the replacement of Z classic which uses all the Z cache technology alright so linked to below is the B private red and also that just came out that’s enough of my be private crypto dividend Z classic talk for tonight do what you’re gonna do I had to lay it out all out there on the table obviously I think this is a really really interesting concept what Rhett is doing over there with Z classic obviously I think it’s very intriguing if this works out if I mean if they’re able to fork it it’s Z classic holders and big coin holders are able to get this be private then you’re gonna see all these other alt coins that currently exist try to get forked on the Bitcoin and I go over that in the other video I am tired now I couldn’t get into all this other stuff again and I know this is difficult to understand if you’re a beginner and I am NOT actually I give links below this video and links below the previous video that really explained this a lot better than I can all right pound that like button though and check out the list section below follow me on Twitter I have been giving awesome crypto dividend updates all day even though I was in the Dallas Airport even though I was in the in the Tucson Airport I’ve been giving you great up updates as much as possible and there is be rhodium sent me an update that guy is awesome I linked a link to him below again he says hello Adam we have updated our website we have taken your concerns into consideration be clear that people need to save the signature making the entire process of getting coins clear well thank you for taking my suggestion and check that B rhodium out below they’re doing the airdrop thing like bit core did okay also in the so there are these new sites out there bit dip bit div cheesy BTC div calm Bitcoin Forks I oh and another one I’ve linked to them all below the third one actually links like to like coins for crypto dividends also again now these three sites that I just listed they’re organized pretty well you know you can you can look up crypto dividends on them some of them still have joke crypto dividends on them but it’s it’s an expansion it helped it’s gonna help you guys know what is out there I can’t say these sites are perfect but it gives some organization and a lot of people have asked me adam send me a site that just tells me what’s out there well go to these three ones and the other one that i always linked to below and just try to figure it out for yourself some of them look interesting there’s obviously new ones i mentioned one of them in a second that i just found out about and again it’s a it’s a very not all these people are it’s a nice try they’re trying to organize things again some jokes like bitcoin uranium be uranium snuck in there still so these sites aren’t perfect but they do have bitcoin crypto dividends on i’m aetherium crypt of differences on them and then this light coin I mean I don’t even know if these litecoin crypt of dividends are true but check out the link section below check out those links and yeah have a strong hand people we’re almost back to 16,000 it’s I mean we are back to 16,000 I don’t know I hope you didn’t uh hope you didn’t panic and sell your Bitcoin that that would be terrible you should have learned your lesson by now okay so speaking of aetherium crypto dividends um one of the people behind be gold got in touch with me and now there’s going to be an ether gold so check out ether gold not gold and that is linked to below I you know hey he did well with be gold maybe this ether gold is going to be a big you know and so we had heard rumors the be gold people were gonna be behind in etherium crypto dividend well now there you go it’s called ether gold it’s in the early stages it is not live yet but there you know and ether gold actually was not listed on any of those sites that I just linked to below that just mentioned so maybe it will be now alright so 2x there might be two two x’s out there now you might remember there was a dude he was like the two m2x guy well I linked to him again he’s been talking to me again to me again he says he needs two to three full-time PR guys so hey if you’re like a marketing dude contact uh him at Twitter its Bitcoin to em that’s who he is on Twitter he says he’s still doing his version of 2x a friendly fork of 2x and then we have these other segments segments 2x friendly for kurz who I mentioned the other day who everyone’s talking about right now because on the coin market cat futures market it’s listed like it’s 6% of a Bitcoin also I noticed these two X people they are B to act B 2 X – seg we do they are advertising on sites they have banner ads okay so I don’t know if any of this is gonna actually happen or not but these dudes that are valued at 6% on the futures market they got something going on because they’re putting the banner ads out there alright so then there’s another there’s another one that I just heard of today my buddy in Argentina where I might be soon you never know he he informed me a B Adam not like my name Adam but like a t om but you know I like the name it sounds like my first name a little bit and they have a tweet that’s out there and I’ve retweeted it I’ll link to it below they’ve got something going on with coin ami like I think you’re gonna be able to extract from coin ami your B Adam that’s pretty wild if it’s I mean and and coin ami actually tweeted this out I think it was the real coin ami Twitter account it’s linked or below hey man we got all sorts of things going on so crypto dividends I mean I predicted it back in August this was gonna be a huge thing it’s it’s definitely taking on a life of its own beyond altcoins um again these are all alt coins I’m not saying in the end of the day there’s only one Bitcoin okay people Z classic and altcoin be private and all coin be Adam Adam an altcoin but these are all things we can get for free and convert them into Bitcoin and that is the goal here all right so yeah Bitcoin is where the big boys play that’s the end the Bitcoin cryptocurrency part of this show I did want to say I link to below the song hush by deep purple that is awesome song from balloon like 50 years ago almost that I guess so i’m adam meister the bitcoinmeister the disrupt meister remember to subscribe his channel like this video share this video check out the notes section below pound that like button I’ll say hello it’s everyone in the chat and do check out the videos the few of these recent videos I’ve done in the last couple of days they’re very interesting their link to below bye bye
Because it’s illogical and more importantly the prices the least relevant or interesting part of Bitcoin Can you explain that the economy to people because a lot of people would say oh that makes sense. But if you explain it a little bit better and you understand that it doesn’t really make sense. We’ll think about it this way in 2000s – 90% of all internet start-Ups went belly-up almost a Trillion dollars of value was destroyed and That was the internet’s best year. Why? because that’s when you started really seeing the web take off and the utility and Adoption all hit these inflection points with the the real explosion in mobile the beginning of smartphones and mobile internet the web had finally taken hold and was beginning to get serious attention from Business and all of the first generation in the internet starts blew up But what really happened is in that in the last two years in that bubble the the internet became entrenched in everybody’s life 2000 was Simultaneously the internet death and it’s rebirth and so but that is capitalism that process of creative destruction and rebirth is the process that creates tremendous Innovation and attention for things Bitcoin has now gone through four bubbles like this and in fact everybody knows about the November 2013 went up to $1,000 crashed down to 230 We’re at 270 now.
Yeah! But what people don’t know is that that’s not the biggest bubble Bitcoin has ever had two years before that bitcoin shot up to $30 and crashed to 25 cents and in relative terms that was a bigger climb and the much bigger drop and it took almost two years to recover from that and That was its second biggest bubble because a really big bubble was when it went from a thousandth of a penny to a dollar at one dollar that was the real birth of Bitcoin because Parity was almost considered unattainable the dollar per Bitcoin like a holy grail dream Right because it started off as worth basically zero and an idea.
Absolutely and the idea that you can bootstrap a global currency from nothing was in itself a ridiculous idea So when you hit dollar parity you’ve proven that you can bootstrap a global currency from nothing and that’s never happened before To then say that the Bitcoin is dead because it’s a 260 If you go back the idea that it could ever reach 260 was insane and by the way We’re not done. We’ve got at least three or four more bubbles right bitcoin is not going to now be steady Because every time attention shifts back it blows another huge rise and Because there’s not enough to sustain that rise usually it will then revert and crash down again. This is a rollercoaster It’s going to continue to be a rollercoaster for three or four years just like the internet was the big difference the internet didn’t have a single stock price that everyone could pay attention to So it’s both a blessing and a curse.
It’s a blessing because it’s an investment vehicle by attracting people to speculate on it it’s generated a lot of attention when it goes up it generates a lot of investment in Bitcoin companies and a lot of the early bitcoin millionaires if you like We’re able to reinvest their bitcoin into startups, but at the same time double-edged sword Every time it crashes someone writes in an obituary for bitcoin like “bitcoin is now dead” By the way, there’s a site called bitcoin obituaries.com where you can read 150 obituaries written since 2010 all of which are not true And I am guaranteeing you they’re going to be two or three more years of Obituaries being written about bitcoin.
Today we’re going to be talking about Tron and a lot of other coins being added to coinbase the possibility of this happening it’s getting closer it’s getting more realistic so we’re talking about all that today in this video guys if you are new to the channel make sure to subscribe and turn on post notifications the winner of the giveaway has actually claimed his prize so I’m going to be sending over a Bitcoin to him as soon as this is done those of you guys who missed out make sure to stay tuned because we’re gonna be doing plenty more giveaways so just make sure you are actively commenting and subscribe to the channel with your notifications turned on also we would love to have you as part of the team now let’s take a look as always we do before we start talking about anything we look at the overall market cap where things are headed we’re down a little bit from yesterday so a little further away from 600 billion dollar market cap bitcoins looking looking good though it’s holding strong we’ve seen a lot of a lot of not too much movement going on the last few days so it’d be interesting to see what the next few days bring in today you see if we see a lot of red hopefully it’s you know it’s nothing big just markets are down today it happens so often in cryptocurrency hopefully we’ll start seeing it recovery soon February is going to be a big month for cryptocurrency I would not again none of what I say is have a financial advice on this channel this is just my opinion make sure to do your own research but you know if I was holding some cryptocurrency I would not be looking at selling it right now and take the loss you know what if for this goes for any of the top cryptocurrencies I would not recommend it unless some big scandal breaks out it’s actually true you know but I wouldn’t recommend it anyways let’s talk about Tron a little bit because a lot of this channel does like Tron we’re not only talking about Tron do not worry there are a lot of coins that are gonna be added you guys could tell by the title of the video a lot of coins are gonna be added but trance pattern are being is being followed by you know a lot of the other crypto currencies as well like I said if Bitcoin doesn’t move nothing else really moves in the market so things have been really relatively steady you know the last few days since for the last week things have been very steady very consistent now usually this means two things usually it means we’re either gonna see a huge pump up or a huge dip down as we occurrence we’ve seen a huge dip down recently if we look at the total market cap here since we’ve seen a huge dip down and we’re starting to see a correction I would expect to see something closed along the lines of this which we saw right here where you get you know you we had a little bit of a correction here start a move sideways and then we had a pump up so that’s sort of the action I am looking for in the next coming days / weeks so like I said don’t fear this is cryptocurrency things are volatile it’s a it’s okay don’t worry but a few of the other corners were gonna be looking at also because there was a reddit thread about this and trust me guys I know it sounds ridiculous that Tron the cryptocurrency I had to had has had so much fun a lot of people you know talked crap about it it’s 14th on the marcab is still pretty good its 14th it’s gonna be added to coinbase like why wouldn’t they add ripple first we’re gonna talk about all that right now so there’s a reddit thread that we’re gonna kind of follow through piece by piece so as has been discovered recently for a handful of cryptocurrency including including including ripple where Justin’s son all right won’t have to worry about that too much so basically what they’re saying if you go to a coin base support and you type in Tron this article is going to pop up supported digital currencies I know it’s no big deal but if you type other coins such as X VG or Virge that is not the case so on some coins this works on some coins this dude does not and the coins that it works on are coins such as ripple OMG neo cute um card on o mineiro all of these work on coinbase um you guys let’s go up here why don’t we prove it ripple you go you type in ripple you get the same article now these coins aren’t actually mentioned in the article which is interesting because you know there’s no sort of key word to trigger for it in the main article there’s no keyword to trigger for that word and one thing that happened on them they didn’t in an interview with the CEO of coinbase here you go so throughout two months ago this has last month a month two months ago said they were planning on adding many more altcoins this next year so what sounds smart to do if I was card if I was some coin base I would be looking at coins that are cheap now I know us cryptocurrency people we know price does not matter much it’s the market cap it’s the volume it’s the coin itself because of the supply it doesn’t matter what the price is right Bitcoin price ripple being this cheap doesn’t mean it’s gonna reach this price we know that’s not how works but think about it as a new investor I’m sure we’ve all been through it as a new investor you know you see $11,000 for one Bitcoin that’s not the coin you probably want to visit invest in that is why so many new people everyone I talk to that you know isn’t in cryptocurrency but they’re thinking about getting into cryptocurrency they’re talking about coins such as ripple and litecoin and now more recently obviously stellar and Cardinal as they have more established themselves in the last few months so you know coin B’s if I was them I would definitely look to add some cheaper coins just to you know range the scale see you guys you know you guys go to coin base right now we have Bitcoin we have aetherium so bitcoins out 11,000 aetherium that over 1,000 light coin which is you know not the most expensive but it is up there in the you know one to two went up to three hundred dollar range and then we have Bitcoin cash which is also very expensive now one thing that really interested me is if we can get any of these coins on there their price is going to pretty much you know 4x or more overnight we seen that happen would be a coin cash when it was added its price went through the roof just because coin base is probably the easiest beginner-friendly exchange out there for the main currencies so that is where a lot I no fees might be higher but that is where a lot of newcomers come in and they buy from there because it’s easiest you don’t have to worry about knowing how to work G Dax or anything like that which isn’t the most common thing but you know you’re new you just want to be able to put your money in take out cryptocurrency and say you’re a cryptocurrency investor that’s what people are looking for so you know the fact that coinbase already has that huge huge amount of accounts if they add a coin in there it’s just going to give that coin more you know access to more people more people gonna have access to the coin they’re gonna buy in the price is gonna go up it’s honestly how it works so if we get a coin like ripple on there which I’m sure ripple is probably their priority right now to get on because it is ranked number three and it is relatively cheap I’m sure ripples on there I have no doubt card on going stellar and me or on there to neo being a little more expensive but again it’s pretty much close to the light coin price and then you know tron $definitely the cheapest one out of the mall cause probably we have one dollar we have 60 cents you know 60 cents six cents for Tron if Chong can get up there guys we’re gonna see it past 30 cents really really easy I’m not saying it will do it I’m not saying it’s going to do it right now I’m just saying you know there’s definitely a possibility if coinbase is looking to add more coins because from what I’m what I understood from the interview with the CEO of coin base they aren’t looking to just be in exchange for newcomers to come in and buy one or two coins they want to be something more established you know I’m thinking it’s looking like they’re try they’re gonna try and compete for you know with by Nance and stuff like that because think about it people usually use coin base to buy in at first the one to get more comfortable cryptocurrency they want start trading they’ll send their Bitcoin up to finance and they’ll trade on Finance that’s how it works right now but apparently coin base has some big things in the works for 2018 so let’s stay tuned make sure you keep up with the information because this could be huge you know the coins that get added could be huge and they’re probably definitely gonna be coins in the top 20 so you know cubes right here Tron these are some pretty good coins and Tron being the cheapest one again we know why because it has a huge supply we know that but people coming in a coin at six cents you got to think about how you know a human would react that would definitely be very enticing for them to get into and if we look at Justin Suns Twitter just to you know cuz we always do this when we talk about charge we always look at Justin Suns Twitter if we go over here we can see that they announced the newest exchange that Tron is going to be on I don’t know how to pronounce that but it’s another big exchange on board it is actually ranked number six in already say it was one of the world’s leading blockchain asset trading platform ranked number six on coin market cap with 1 billion trading daily trading volume you guys can see that right there eum’s number one for its volume Bitcoin cute um etherium meta shares yo s you guys can read the list and it does at the bottom as you can see it toppled 1 billion dollars so very very cool very very cool Tron again making some moves we’re waiting to see the price go up price of Tron isn’t going to move unless the Bitcoin price moves that’s just how things go and if you look at the Bitcoin price I know it might fluctuate plus minus 3% but we know as cryptocurrency investors 3% doesn’t mean anything right and you guys can see very much sideways movement right here looking for that break looking for a bullish run and I think it’s coming very soon but guys let me know in the comments down below which coin do you guys think is going to be added to coin base which coins do you think are gonna be added to coin based like I said I’m thinking ripples probably gonna be first hard to argue with that after that what are we gonna see Cardno may be stellar may be neo may be Tron let me know down below what you guys think in the comments also don’t forget if you guys did enjoy this video smash that thumbs up button I have not forgot about the Facebook group guys we’re gonna get that made in tomorrow’s video I’m hoping to announce it I just want to make sure that when I announce it I have

– Alright guys, today we’re gonna talk about how I was able to get my Tesla Model 3 for far less than the actual price of it. And it involves some cryptocurrency stuff, and I wanna keep it simple and easy to understand, so I’m gonna bring my wife in– (cheering) to help make sure that I don’t get too deep into the weeds there. So let’s get started. Alright honey, so I told you that we weren’t gonna spend that much money on this car. – Yeah. – And it was almost $60,000. – Right. – I know that’s a lot, and you’re not thrilled. – I just think when you spend money on cars, you don’t get that money back. Like the instant you drive it off the lot, it all goes away, so it just doesn’t seem like a good investment to me. – Oh snap! – That is true. – It’s a hard sell for me. – That is true, and so to recap, our Tesla Model 3 was $54,000 MSRP, then taxes and everything else were– – [Jenny] Because you had to have the autopilot, you had to have– – [Ben] Well to get the long range, we had to get the, or I’m sorry, to get it earlier we had to get long range and premium upgrades, and autopilot you just have to have.
– [Jenny] Right. – So taxes and fees and everything came to just under $60,000, $59,866. Pretty expensive for a car, especially not the higher end Tesla. – Yeah, I mean I think the most I’ve ever spent on a car was close to 26 or 27 when I bought the car right before Jack was born. – The Acura RDX, and so we actually used some of that to pay for this car. So overall, I think the message here today is that we have good news, that we didn’t pay nearly $60,00 for our car.
– Well this is how it always starts. I complain about spending too much money, and you go let me look at the data, and I’ll make sure that’s not how much we spent. So, that’s were it’s subtle. – That’s how the first one happened. – This is where this is born from. – Okay, so let’s just talk about real quickly what these numbers are. We got a loan for $27,090. – So here, I had a question for you, why did you get a loan? How come you didn’t find some way just to– – Just to pay for it? – Right, because I think what you’ll get into is that we pulled from certain investments.
– Yeah. – Like, you’re very into getting loans. – Well okay, so if I can get a loan for under 5%, then I can essentially take that same money, put it into an index fund or another investment that is more or less guaranteed to get a 5% or greater return, and we’re making money on the deal. – Say what?! – Okay. – That make sense? So we’re borrowing the money and we’re paying for that, but we’re taking that same amount of money and putting it somewhere else where the amount we’re making on it is greater than the cost of borrowing. – So you think you can do more with money if it’s not– – Yeah, and it’s tricky, right, but I think it’s smart if you can do it, and so our loan, $27,090, we got a 2.19% interest rate.
– That’s pretty good. – Which is extremely low. Tesla was offering I think was the lowest that they had, and so yeah, this is just a little bit less than that but still better. The reason we got the lower interest rate is because we got the shorter term, right? – What did you do, three years? – We did three and a half, 42 months.
– Three and a half. – Some people do, most people do 60 months, like a five year loan. Some people do 72 months. I think that’s too long, most people don’t keep their cars that long, and the only reason to even get a loan was to save money on interest. – Okay. – That’s what we did. – Yeah. – So, hopefully that makes you happy. – Yeah. – And so that gives us a monthly payment of $673.00. – Jeez still? – That’s not bad. – I know, but– – If we were to get a loan for the entire amount, it would be close to $1,000 a month. – Wow, okay. – Yeah. ♪ I make it rain, I make it rain ♪ – Which is what the other Tesla was. I think actually it’s like $1,200 a month or something.
– Yeah. – And that’s ’cause we financed almost all of it. – The shorter loan makes your payment higher. – Right, right, and you know you build up, if you were to resell it, it’s a better deal but really the main reason to do it is for better interest rates. – Okay. – The cost of borrowing the money. – So we’ve got about half in a loan. – More than half, yeah. Well actually no, yeah that’s about right. Then we sold your car and we sold it at CarMax, not a sponsor. – I love CarMax. – I do too, they always give us a good deal. – They make it so easy. I’ve sold two cars on Craigslist, do not recommend that. It is like the worst experience I’ve ever had. – Great experience So they gave us $14,500 for your 2013 Acura RDX. – Yep. – We paid originally $26,000 or so. – Something, I can’t remember.
– Anyways, so that was 14, so that money is, that’s money out of pocket. – And I had already paid that off. – Right. – So I didn’t have a loan or a lien on it. – Right, so that was money that was sitting in the car, and we took it out of the car and spent it here. Then comes the magic, and this was one of the coolest things that I was lucky enough, we were lucky enough, to have a friend that recommended looking into certain cryptocurrencies a while ago. – And I think it’s so cool. I’m just still trying to grasp– – Yeah. – What cryptocurrency is. – Don’t really need to worry about what it is, how it works, or any of that. – Money! – There was an amount of free money here, so we spent $2on Ethereum back in January of 2017. – [Jenny] Okay. – Which at the time the cost of one of Ethereum was $10.00, and we sold 20 of those Ethereum close to $800.00.
And so our final after fees and everything for processing now was $14,5that we got from a $2investment. – Gotcha. – So think about that like stock, or something. We invested in Tesla, they went up and we sold the Tesla– – Can you can take out the money whenever you want? – Yeah. – Oh, okay. – Yeah, it’s just like a stock or gold or something. – You didn’t want to take out $60,000 because you feel like it could make more. – So here’s the thing, a lot of cryptocurrency fans, people probably watching are freaking out right now because we sold Ethereum, but if you think about it, we went from $to $800.00. That’s a great, a huge return. That’s a win. Now we didn’t sell all of our Ethereum, that’s why I got a loan. – Yeah. – So I’m calling that $2is what we spent. Yes, we could have taken the $15,000 went out and done something else with it, but really we put that $2and turned it into $15,000 almost, and that paid for a lot of the car. So starting out with the loan amount, our total cost for that including interest was just over $28,000, Jenny’s car gave us $14,500 to put towards it.
The $2Ethereum purchase which later turned into almost $15,000 helped a lot. We have our $3,500 deposit which we had already paid, and then we’re subtracting out the tax credits gives us a final price that we’re actually out of pocket for, for our Tesla Model 3, at $36,468. – Alright guys, well, thanks for joining us. I’m curious what you guys think about this. Was selling the Ethereum a bad idea, was it a good idea? How are you going to finance it, are you finding better rates than we found? Leave all this stuff, all those comments down below, and we’ll have a chat about it.
Until then, don’t forget when you free the data, your mind will follow. Thank for watching we’ll see you back here next time..
Facebook Bans All Cryptocurrency Advertising Including ICOs, Bitcoin And Ethereum Facebook is banning all ads that promote cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, in an effort to prevent people from advertising what the company is calling “financial products and services frequently associated with misleading or deceptive promotional practices.” That also means that “crypto-genius” James Altucher, whose ads have appeared all over the internet and have become a meme of sorts for the entire crypto industry, won’t be able to advertise on Facebook. Ads that violate the company’s new policy will be banned on Facebook’s core app, but also in other places where Facebook sells ads, including Instagram and its ad network, Audience Network, which places ads on third-party apps.
“This policy is intentionally broad while we work to better detect deceptive and misleading advertising practices,” wrote Rob Leathern, one of Facebook’s ad tech directors. “We will revisit this policy and how we enforce it as our signals improve.” The cryptocurrency boom/bubble has led to scams and wild price fluctuations that have cost a lot of people — including unsophisticated investors a lot of money. Scams are illegal, but gambling on investments you don’t understand is not. Look for blowback from entrepreneurs and investors who argue that the move unfairly punishes legitimate cryptocurrency companies and related crypto products.
Facebook’s board of directors includes two investors — Marc Andreessen and Peter Thiel — whose firms have been prominent crypto backers. Facebook Messenger boss, David Marcus, is also on the board at the popular crypto exchange Coinbase..
THE STORIES OF DRAMATIC SUCCESSES ARE INTOXICATING I PUT MORE THAN $1000 IN THIS MACHINE. Reporter: HE MAKES REGULAR VISITS TO THIS BIT COIN ATM.
ONCE THEY GO UP, I SELL BACK TO MY BANK AND MAKE PROFIT.
Reporter: HE HAS A GRASP ON SOMETHING THAT MOST PEOPLE DON’T. I KNOW IT’S ONLINE MONEY. BASICALLY, ELECTRONIC MONEY, I GUESS IS IT USABLE AT McDONALD’S?
Reporter: THE FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT WHILE THERE WERE BIT COIN IMAGES OUT THERE AND OTHER CRYPTO CURRENCIES, IT’S NOT LIKE CASH. IT EXISTS IN THE EITHER OF THE INTERNET. BIT COIN’S AND IT TOOK CURRENCY EXIST ONLY TO THE EXTENT THAT I BELIEVE IN THEM AND YOU BELIEVE IN THEM. NOW WE HAVE TWO, THREE, FOUR IF WE CAN GET THE BELIEVERS INTO THIS MODEL, NOW WE’VE GOT VALUE BETWEEN EACH OTHER.
THAT IS THE EXTENT OF IT.
CRYPTO CURRENCY CAN BE USED BETWEEN YOU AND A SELLER ON THE NET. OTHERWISE, YOUR CURRENCY STAYS IN THE INTERNET UNTIL YOU CHOOSE TO CASH IT OUT. I TRANSFER FUNDS FROM MY BIT COIN ACCOUNT TO MY REGULAR ACCOUNT IN THE BANK.
THEY ARE THE DEFINITION OF VOLATILE AND RISKY. BIT COIN’S HAD NO CALL IT — VALUE AND THEN THEY WENT UP TO $20,000 A COIN. SOMETIMES I WAKE UP IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND A LOOK.
