I totally see the benefit of Crypto, but fear the Governments of the world will not freely give up their monopoly on money and just ban all Crypto transactions.

Every day i see major players either 100% Pro Crypto or 100% Con .... Buffett hates it!

  • Fidelity Investments is preparing to launch its own bitcoin fund as the investment giant works to cement its clout in the market for digital assets.
  • FD Funds Management, a subsidiary of Fidelity, said it plans to provide financial backing for an ETF called the Wise Origin Bitcoin Trust.
  • The fund will track the performance of bitcoin as measured by the Fidelity Bitcoin Index, which Fidelity created to track the price of the digital currency.
  • Though the world’s largest digital asset has struggled in recent weeks, its current price around $52,430 is far above where it traded one year ago under $10,000.
Doest get more mainstream than that

Maui, your gonna have to splain that one

Crypto bulls are out in force as a growing list of companies embrace Bitcoin, even as skeptics doubt the durability of the boom. In one of the most potent signs of Wall Street’s growing acceptance of cryptocurrencies, Coinbase will list on the Nasdaq on April 14 at a valuation of about $100 billion.

Isabel Schnabel, member of the executive board of the European Central Bank, called Bitcoin “a speculative asset without any recognizable fundamental value”

A TYPICAL BANKER WITH NO VISION OR IMAGINATION

er gave his time to UN humanitarian missions, shot himself in the head when he learned he lost his life savings thanks to Madoff; Foxton had invested his via an Austrian bank that in turn fed them to Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC.

As director of compliance for his older brother’s investment advisory business, Peter Madoff was in a position to know plenty of secrets. mPeter’s daughter Shana also worked in compliance for the Madoff firm. She briefly raised eyebrows when it was revealed that she was married to Securities and Exchange Commission attorney Eric Swanson, and that the couple had dated since 2003.

Madoff’s primary bank, J.P. Morgan Chase, paid billions of dollars in penalties and adopted reforms as part of an agreement with federal prosecutors to settle criminal charges.

Federal prosecutors said Chase should have known it was being used to commit fraud, and in 2014 they charged the bank with two felony counts for failing to maintain adequate controls. But in a deferred prosecution agreement, the feds said they would drop the charges if, within two years, the bank adopted a proper compliance system and paid $2.6 billion in fines and penalties.

The agreement did not require the bank to publicly disclose the changes it made, but in 2016, the feds kept up their end of the bargain. They told a federal judge that they were dropping the case after the bank instituted unspecified reforms and paid the money, which amounts to about 10 days of revenue.
AND YOU HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT A DIGITAL CURRENCY PROTECTED FROM FRAUD BY AN UNBREAKABLE CYPHER ??

In the year 215 AD, the young Roman Emperor Caracalla, then just 27 years of age, decided to ‘fix’ Rome’s perennial inflation problem by minting a brand new coin.
Caracalla’s predecessors over the previous several decades had ordered an astonishing debasement of Roman currency; the silver content in Rome’s ‘denarius’ coin, for example, was reduced from roughly 85% in the early 150s AD, to less than 50% by the early 200s.
And with the silver content in their currency greatly reduced, government mints cranked out unprecedented quantities of coins.
They spent the money as quickly as they minted it, using the flood of debased coins, for example, to finance endless wars and buy up food supplies for their soldiers.
Needless to say this caused rampant inflation across the empire.

Egypt was a province of Rome at the time, and one of the Empire’s major agricultural producers. Its local provincial coin, the drachma, had also been heavily debased.
A measure of Egyptian wheat in the early 1st century AD, for example, cost only 8 drachmas. In the third century that same amount of Egyptian wheat cost more than 100,000 drachmas.
Caracalla tried to fix this by simply creating a new coin-- the antoniniamis.
It was originally minted with 50% silver content. But the antoniniamis was debased down to just 5% silver within a few decades.
Caracalla’s undisciplined attempt at controlling inflation was about as effective as Venezuela trying to ‘fix’ its hyperinflation by chopping five zeros off its currency.
In fact this same story has been told over and over again throughout history:


Governments who spend too much money almost invariably resort to debasing the currency.
In ancient times, ‘debasement’ meant reducing the gold and silver content in their coins.
In early modern times, it meant printing vast quantities of paper money.
Today, it means creating ‘electronic’ money in the banking system.
But the effect is the same: every new currency unit they create reduces the value of the existing ones. This is not the path to prosperity.
Economies flourish when talented, hardworking people are free to produce valuable goods and services.

It’s ridiculous to expect that an economy becomes wealthier when people are paid to NOT work, when debt levels soar, and when central bankers conjure trillions of dollars out of thin air.
Debasing the money supply does not create REAL wealth. It does, however, create inflation.
Central banks around the world, especially in Europe and the United States, debased their currencies last year in record proportions.
The Federal Reserve in the US roughly DOUBLED the size of its balance sheet last year, with ‘M2 money supply’ growing faster than any year in history except 1943.
More importantly, there’s no end in sight. The Federal Reserve, the US Treasury Department, and influential members of the United States Congress, all want even MORE expansion of the money supply.

Carbon footprint lol

What's the carbon footprint caused by the legacy banking system with all their buildings, data centers, etc ?

What's the carbon footprint caused by gold and silver mining?

The establishment is waking up and learning their days are numbered so their FUD campaign is about to go into high gear

They will win in the short term. But in the long term the only 'ugly end' will be felt by the status quo

This is true. The energy used to "mine" BTC is crazy, but, as we see in China and Russia now, the big minig operations are next to big hydroelectric projects and they have wink wink relationship with the sparky.

Eventually mining will not be cost effective in countries with energy costs and these guys will make big money.
All of this will just push the price higher

Turkey's central bank banned the use of cryptocurrencies and crypto assets for purchases, citing possible 'irreparable' damage and transaction risks

BACKWARD NATIONS GOVT TRIES TO PUT A FINGER IN THE DAMN

The decision could stall Turkey’s crypto market, which has gained momentum in recent months as investors joined the global rally in Bitcoin, seeking to hedge against lira depreciation and inflation that topped 16 percent last month.

AND WILL FAIL...

The backlash against a Nigerian central bank directive on cryptocurrencies echoes a dilemma facing governments around the world: how to regulate Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies without stifling innovation.

THE PANIC IN GOVTS AND GLOBAL PRINTING PRESSES AT GOVT INSTITUTIONS IS ONLY JUST STARTING - ITS TOO LATE
the more they try to regulate it out of existence, the more credibility they give it, the more valuable it becomes, the more sought after it is, the higher the price goes
