Crypto update for January 8


Thoughts I put down in 15 minutes… CHINA BANS…..mining. That’s the big news over the last couple of days. The markets fell about 10%, but I can’t see any downside. The Chinese government is calling for an “orderly” wind down, so we don’t have to worry about hashing power changing abruptly. And now the complaints about centralized mining in China no longer...

Please get out of Ripple


Dear friends, We are in the midst of cryptocurrency mania. We are definitely in a bubble. It is uncertain how long this bubble is going to last, but it is certain when the bubble bursts only coins with some fundamental value are going to be left standing. I can say without reservation that ripple is a horrible coin for long term investors concerned about real value. The ripple team has been...

Bitcoin is still the future


As I write this, Bitcoin is in the midst of a dip to 12,000. Some people think it could go below 10,000. I bought some more Bitcoin around 16,000, and I’m not worried at all. I just recently read this fascinating essay by a guy who apparently used to work at KKR. It’s a little slow to get started, but the conclusion hits you pretty hard about halfway through: the real money will be in...

Korea is cracking down on cryptocurrency


The news broke about 30 minutes ago. The market is down about 15%. If this is like previous news of the same type, the market overreacts. It seems likely that they are just going to add more regulations, and perhaps shut down some of the iffy exchanges. If you are in the market for some coins, especially coins normally traded in Korea, they are on sale. /EDIT I am told by a friend who works for a...

Crypto Update


If you bought civic at $.27 when I said it was undervalued, you’ve doubled your money, And this also fulfills my $.50 prediction for the end of the year I think it could hit two dollars next year, but I also believe other coins have a higher potential market cap. And also you never know what’s happening next week in crypto. At this point, I’ve hit all of my predictions from a couple of months...

RSI Supplements


There was a time when I was incredibly skeptical of what one might call “alternative medicine”, including herbal supplements, massage therapy, acupuncture,and anything else not prescribed by a doctor. However, I have come to appreciate that medical science doesn’t have all the answers. In my struggle with repetitive stress injuries – mostly carpal tunnel but also tendinitis – I have found herbal...

Crypto roundup


Bitcoin is going stratospheric. It *seems* to have started because of the announcements that CME will be offering futures on Bitcoin in a couple weeks. That seems to have been the news which brought Bitcoin to the mainstream and now it’s plastered all over all the newspapers and money shows. This is obvious from the stats for Coinbase signups, which went from 100,000 a month to 100,000 a...
