    I'm know quite little regarding cryptocurrencies, but view them as having great potential for liberation or control. This is a video from 2017 that I considered worth sharing. I do not wish to spread fear, only to inform.

    It's a matter of definition. Much confusion here. 'Cryptos' have their roots in libertarianism: anarchism, decentralisation.

    If you'd been a Coinmarketcap user in 2014, you'd know what a shouting match occured over Ripple, which is, by the definition of many long-timers, simply not a crypto: it's centralised.

    And over time, a range of terms came into play, and the definitions of those 'skidded' about: cryptocurrency, token, DLT, CBDC, blah blah blah

    If you ask, I'll explain some more. But a good place to start is by defining a 'pure' cryptocurrency:

    a dev or devs codes an instrument. It is launched -- 'genesis block.' The launch is fair: no shenanigans (like 'instamines') or 'pre-mines' (for development). There is no controlling body (you gotta ask about the diff between POW and POS cryptos). The coin has a downloadable 'wallet' that anyone can set up -- not 'permissioned' in any way.

    The units of the instrument come into being as they are 'mined' (POW).

    Each crypto has a community of interested folks. Many are miners and/or traders of that crypto (and others). New wallets and other developments happen along the way. Things happen by (often clumsy and angry) consensus.

    Looks like Bill might be trying to create his own digital currency with identity attribution. Bill Gates stated about bitcoin:

    --What’s your favourite crypto coin you would recommend? And do you think we’re currently in a upswing for a while or just an uptick before another crash

    'What’s your favourite crypto coin you would recommend? And do you think we’re currently in a upswing for a while or just an uptick before another crash?'

    Hey, crewy. My favourite crypto? I think it's best for me to not do anything that makes me seem like a shill. But if you come and visit me over on Telegram, you'll find out.

    Are we currently in an upswing?

    Big big question!!

    The wrong question to ask is: 'If I buy crypto today, how much % will I have made by next Tuesday afternoon?' Heck. I don't know!! The right question to ask is: 'Do I think that cryptos' prices will never go above what they are today, my buy-in day??' Lookin' at the charts, over years? Yeh. You'll eventually get a spike.

    People fail at cryptos because they are greedy and impatient.

    The volatility is also cycles. Price crashes; buy a bit, and wait; price crashes; buy a bit, and wait; price spikes crazy, sell; price crashes, buy a bit, and wait.


    Now The Political:

    I came to cryptos from libertarian politics. The global socio-economic system is dead, it just hasn't fallen over yet. COVID is a bizarre and ghastly sorta cherry on the top of that.


    Check here: https://www.investopedia.com/government-stimulus-efforts-to-fight-the-covid-19-crisis-4799723

    The governments of the world are going to issue so much debt that I just do not see how the global fiat-currency regime will not explode into hyperinflation. Thus, any 'basket' of good-volume well-managed well-established cryptos is a good investment. And various upticks and crashes in the meantime? Heck, who knows.

    But keep plenty of bullion.

    Fair enough, I’m slowly warming up to crypto. Got a lil ethereum and bitcoin cash. Looks like more small holders moving in whilst the institutional guys are moving out, maybe a big dip and buying opportunity coming up depending on how it all goes?

    ' I’m slowly warming up to crypto.' First and foremost: 'OPSEC' -- operational security. And this is the sort of thing I can help y'all with.

    Passwords and dat files and pubkeys and paper-wallet privkeys all gotta be in one place, secure, and backed up out the wazoo.

    Ah so I’m using Coinbase and coinjar to take out cash. I’m guessing this is the beginner way to do it? Any info would be appreciated. Cheers
