Buy Bitcoin. It might be legal or illegal, but it is digital gold. $1000 to $10000 in 2 years? Don't be stupid.

DOJ: Ohio Man Ran $300 Million Bitcoin Money Laundering Scheme

ZDNet reports that Larry Harmon, 36, of Akron, Ohio, has been accused of operating a website on the dark web called “Helix” which acted as a “Bitcoin mixer” service, disguising the origin of users’ Bitcoin transactions to make them untraceable. Because the Bitcoin blockchain is a public database, transactions on it can often be linked back to the buyer’s credit card, bank account, or PayPal, Helix sought to prevent that.

Helix acted as a service that would take funds from a user, split it into smaller amounts and then reassemble the funds at a new Bitcoin address via thousands of small transactions. This is done in an attempt to mask the origin of the first transaction.

SEC Slammed For "Shifting Standards" Following Latest Bitcoin ETF Rejection

The US Securities and Exchange Commision has rejected New York based firm Wilshire Phoenix’s Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) application, citing ongoing concerns over market manipulation and a lack of surveillance-sharing agreements.

Explaining the reasons behind its Wednesday ruling the SEC said the company had been unable to provide enough proof that it can protect itself from “fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices” in the Bitcoin market in order “to protect investors and the public interest.”

Don't stop believing. I actually had a couple buy orders get hit on this crash. I've had them sitting there for a bit, not really expecting them to get hit. Giddy up.

The real story here isn't about Bitcoin, nor the estimated 6-11% of the US population that own it. Bitcoin is doing fine.

The real story here isn't about COVID-19, travel bans, NBA game attendance, or toilet paper shortages.

The real story is about the stock market, the federal reserve, interest rates, and the growth in the money supply.

HODL.

Damn, between my miners and BTC does my azz hurt!! :-(

I did pick up a little more BTC sub-and plus-5K.

Stack and Hodl - the next few weeks should be "interesting," especially if US bonds drill through zero.

Been trying to buy BTC on the boards but no one is selling so I had to buy on Coinbase, just bought at around $5300. If still low on Monday I'll buy some more. I hate those damn fees.
Be Prepared Keep Stacking
