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…

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…

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.

Bitcoin and Cryptos as ‘Value Instruments’

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…
