Bitcoin, “Money”, Common Sense and Freedom: A Historic Opportunity

Please take a look at this video. When this talk was given by Andreas Antonopoulus in March 2017, bitcoin had never gone through a “fork”. The price of 1 BTC was under $1,100 and the Market Cap, $17 billion (on its way to $20 billion that he mentions in the talk). Five months later, on August 1, when the fork…

Las Vegas Shooting: Could the Blockchain Turn the ‘False Flag’ Event Business into a “Bubble”?

For the moment I live in Las Vegas, scene of the latest crime against humanity that is alleged to have been the work of a single man. I took the above picture on Thursday evening, September 28, a scant 72 hours prior to the event that turned Mandalay Bay into the flash point of a heinous crime. I’m not calling…

Blockchain Evangelism at the 2017 TeslaTech Conference

After getting a few hours sleep I’ll make the 560 drive from Las Vegas to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to attend the Extraordinary Technology Conference, which most know as “TeslaTech”. Each year thousands of people converge on the largest city in the Land of Enchantment to see and hear unconventional, and in some circles, impossible products and discourses from some of…

Tsunami Conditions for Bitcoin: Preparing to Ride the Wave

As we watch the price of bitcoin and the other cryptocurrencies appear to plummet it’s good to appreciate the opportunity for greater growth that is at hand. This could be called a tsunami condition for which, if we are properly prepared, great profits lie ahead. Said profits would be the secondary benefit when large mass quantities of people migrate into…

Quiet Reflection: ‘In Dependence’ Day

When “holiday” times come like today, I tend to be in a different state of mind. My take on this “life” narrative has changed dramatically in the past few years. Now, days like the 4th of July, dubbed “Independence Day”, rehash and retrace narratives that are intended to build patriotism, but what exactly *is* “patriotism”? Here’s the dictionary definition: “the…

Bringing ‘The Debt Age’ to an End

I’ve lost more than my proportional share of bitcoin through various accrual platforms. In my first Steemit post I talked about one that I had high hopes of, called WalletPllus. A month after writing that article, WP went away suddenly, which prompted a reader to remark: “Well WalletPllus was a scam and that makes u????” His inference, that WP was…

The True Face of ‘Money’ Ain’t Pretty

Originally posted on Steem (@phaelosopher) I am still new to the CryptoSphere, having only begun studying the phenomenon and its social *implications* of bitcoin and friends in February of this year. Every day is discovery for me, even at “three score and five” times around the sun. The social implications of the bitcoin and alt-coin ascendancy *at this time* is…

Bitcoin and Cryptos as ‘Value Instruments’

This might sound obvious, nit picky or not important, but bitcoin isn’t money. None of the alt-coins are money. They function like money, but they’re not. They are actually better at being what we think of as “money,” than money is. This insight has been percolating in and around my mind for some time. What to do with it, has…

Discerning Bitcoin’s Value

A recent story published on Cointelegraph reports a “warning” from Goldman Sachs that bitcoin’s price will turn in a bearish direction once it hits $3,100. This amounts to either wishful thinking, or inside information to a planned “event” (that will be temporary, if it happens at all). While I am still a newbie in the cryptosphere, I’ve been around the…

Way Beyond Money: The Importance of Bitcoin

I have had quite a bit to say about bitcoin lately, but have taken little time to write. My evangelizing about the coin and its implications has been so constant and intense (for me anyway), that one subscriber on my YouTube channel asked if I had turned it into The Bitcoin Channel. It would have been a fair question (and…

Bitcoin: The Emergence of ‘New’ Money

For all the actions that humankind has taken to create a devolutionary spiral to the lowest depths of a civilizational abyss (although I’m sure we can go lower if we try), a doorway will always appear that will allow the astute and willing to save themselves from a fate that would befall an obedient, distracted, complacent, stubborn, or unthinking herd. The…

Life Without Food: A Post Mortem

Since coming off a 20-day, water-only fast on Easter Eve, where my body weight plummeted to 160 lbs, my energy, strength, and outlook continues to grow brighter. However, eating once again was not to be rushed into. The bathroom scale indicated 160 lbs only a few days ago (Sunday). My first “food” intake after almost three-weeks was cold-pressed apple juice. I also…

Life Without Food: When the Body Says ‘No Mas’

Today, on Easter Sunday, would have represented day 21 of a 40-day fast, but yesterday, the half-way point, at 160 lbs, my body said “no mas.” I have yet to “eat” anything solid. A glass of cold-pressed apple juice, followed up by a fresh blend of unpasteurized orange and pineapple juices, and several cups of vegetable-broth miso soup, was a marvelous feast for…

Allowing My Body to Heal (Not “Cure”) Itself

I am on day 4 of a 40-day water fast, and all is well. My days are as long and active as ever. The main difference is that there’s no “dinner time” for me. I am doing this as part of a larger shift to allow my body to cleanse, repair, and regenerate parts that have been under great stress…

Rebooting Myself: The Ultimate Journey

the ultimate journey

I didn’t watch President Trump’s speech yesterday, so I don’t know what he said, and have no opinion about it, other than we got what we were willing to bet on, and that he remains the lesser of the “two evils” that Americans were given the illusion of choosing. Mr. Trump is not our problem, nor our solution. Irrespective of who caused, or is still causing…

‘Dividable’ Americans, Not Trump, Are America’s Greater Weakness

It has been quite the new beginning for 2017. Now let us get accustomed to what seemed like the most unlikely of outcomes; i.e., the election of Donald J. Trump as president of United States of America Corporation, who managed to make it through the inauguration. Perhaps it was never in doubt, but it sure seemed that way. I am…

A Voice and Power From Within: ‘Dear Diary’

By whatever name or tradition you prefer, I send joyful and sincere Holiday greetings to everyone. As this new solar (and soular) cycle ascends, may our appreciation, awareness, trust for, and use of the Great Power within us, also grow. Did that sound a bit “woo woo”? If so, so be it. It has become evident to me that the netherworld of what mainstream opinion shapers…
