As of this writing, Bitcoin is back up enough that the money I’m sending
0.06739776 BTC = $1,021.64
is enough to initiate an interest bearing “loan” to the Bitconnect trading bot.
You might not choose a lending program. There are mining pools you can join, which I know very little about, or you can just sit on it and watch the market. My own goal is to earn more Bitcoins (more dollars is just gravy), so I did go with a loan investment program.
A minimum of $1010 gets you an extra .1% / day. The “Reinvests” do not get that extra .1% kicker, but you have the option of reinvesting it every day for the daily variable interest, or holding it until you have enough to initiate another loan. You can hold it in unchanging USD, or in the BCC (Bitconnect) coin wallet, on the possibility it might grow there faster than in the USD wallet. Putting it immediately into BTC (Bitcoin) incurs exchange fees, and if you’re going to reinvest it or make a new loan anyway, there is no point.
I started mine at $1020, did daily reinvests for a couple of weeks, but I’m now accumulating the interest, in either the USD Lending Wallet, or the BCC wallet (BCC=Bitconnect Coin), until I accumulate enough interest to initiate another loan with the .1% daily kicker. The BCC Bitconnect Coin is not the same as the BTC Bitcoin, but they follow very similar profiles on their price charts. I care more about the slopes up and down than I care about the actual price per coin, since unlike stocks, you can buy fractions of coins.
The BCC company did some kind of adjustment to its coin supply or something, to correct for that too steep dip last week. They appear to want to keep it on mirroring BTC.

Jimmy Song – Bitcoin blockchain programmer, teaching blockchain programming seminars
Crypto Spark – short videos with a broad view on the world of crypto, which is much bigger than just Bitcoin
Sunny Decree – Swiss German, good technicals, good overview of the crypto world. Used to sponsor Bitconnect, but he turned on them over a graphical image error on the Bitconnect website, which he felt was misleading, and I felt was merely a mistake. It has since been corrected in either case. I guess he does all right for himself on other lending and especially mining platforms.
Ivan on Tech – Programmer, Russian born, now lives in Sweden. Good technical explanations. He appears to be younger than I think he really is. I think he wears lipstick. He is starting up an online academy to teach blockchain programming. He’s the one who said how hard it was to explain to citizens of 1st world countries why Bitcoin is a safe haven from banksters & governments who go rogue. But people in Russia, Venezuela, & Zimbabwe, etc, get it.
Andreas Antonopolus – deeply philosophical and evangelical about Bitcoin saving the world – he saved his mother’s life savings from the clutches of the E.U./European Central Banks/Greek Government (aka crony banksters) when they went raiding the Greek public’s deposits, called “Bail-ins”, a crime they had been planning against the whole world, including Americans, to save the banksters from their own corruption failures, — by transferring her life savings into Bitcoin where they couldn’t get it.. (Don’t think the NWO doesn’t eventually have that planned for you and me, if they could possibly get away with it.)
CryptoNick – a teenager who has a knack for trading & choosing lending programs (there are others besides Bitconnect) & cloud mining investments. He made a bet with his parents he wouldn’t have to go to college if he could make a millionaire of himself, and he did it faster than he expected to.
EverythingCrypto – a brand new channel that only has 3 videos, but if she keeps it up, she’s very good at explaining how-to’s to newbies to crypto. Just those 3 videos have already put her over 4,000 subscribers.
Bitconnect Specific Gurus I like are –
Roy Murphy – lots of calm technical explanations. I ended up choosing him as my “upline” sponsor, (not required to join Bitconnect) because I was pretty sick of all the drama on several other Bitconnect YouTube channels.
Trevon James – some technical, a lot of drama, always entertaining, he sometimes understands more than he’s able to express.
One I really don’t like is –
Craig Grant – actually pays for ads on YouTube. ALL DRAMA ALL THE TIME, no technical nuthin’. Big swagger. After several videos, I’ve realized I really don’t like him as a person. I even hate his commercials now.
You all need Coinbase accounts to move USD into and out of your bank accounts, although I hear others are becoming available. However, Coinbase is known to pass judgement on your transactions, and if they consider who you’re transacting with “spammy”, they will suddenly close your account.
I have no idea what Coinbase thinks of Bitconnect, because Bitconnect is only a year old. In fact, Bitconnect is having an ICO & new decentralized exchange launch later this month. You can make a lot of money with Bitconnect without being anyone’s sponsor, but their main marketing model is Multi-Level-Marketing, where you can make a lot more money in commissions a lot faster, if you have the personality for it. (I don’t think I do.) But just the MLM aspect triggers some people into labeling Bitconnect a “scam”. It’s not. But I don’t know what Coinbase thinks of it.
For this reason, the advice I’ve heard more than once is to get a personal wallet for BTC/ETH/LTC that is the only path you move crypto money into and out of Coinbase with, even though it might cost you more fees. Right now Nick and I have Blockchain.info wallets. A lot of people have Exodus wallets you download and install on your hard drive. (I’m too scared of them, myself.) I believe Andreas Antonopolus is associated with both of those companies. I wouldn’t touch a phone wallet, except for maybe enough money to go grocery shopping with. Tone Vays recommends GreenAddress. A quick search on Blockchain.info (DNS, IP loation)’s & GreenAddress.it (DNS, IP location)’s server info, shows that they are both hosted in likely the same building in San Francisco.
Bitconnect itself has a BTC wallet, but that is the wallet I prefer not to deposit directly to from Coinbase.
Some people prefer and recommend hard wallets, which plug into your USB port, which have recovery protocols you can set up in advance to recover your money, if it ever gets lost, stolen, or destroyed.
Some of the gurus have demonstration/review videos of hard wallets. Nano S & Tresor seem to be the two big names.
We’ll have to watch it to get it locked in a “loan” above $1010 or $1020. Bitcoin almost looks like a living thing, the way it breaths in and out.
I view Bitconnect as taking some of the volatility out of crypto for me. It’s like jumping rope, timing when to jump in, when to jump out.
That’s enough for now.
PS – Update 01/08/2018 – On a final note, you might have fun (& profit) looking into Steemit social media. This guy, Thrift Shop Hustler on YouTube, & @reseller on Steemit (same guy), is pretty good at explaining it, although its level of complication is like learning a high-strategy virtual game! 💡 😆
What is Collective-Evolution’s agenda in pushing this brutal Buddhist world view? Their article boils down to ‘Be Oblivious. Let Predators in. Then Blame the Victim.’
No. Life is bigger than that.
1) Worry is motivation to solve a problem. If you don’t care enough to solve it, it won’t get solved, and will be left to fester.
2) Only change that benefits you should be accepted. Otherwise, you will attract abusers with agendas of their own to impose on you.
3) Yes, to be happy, you must use your own eyes to see reality as it is — not as somebody with their own baggage and agendas tells you it is. They use statements like the above “someone has to tell you the truth if you aren’t getting it, so allow me.”
4) All short term thinking, not just about “feelings”, certainly leads to mistakes. Thoughts lead to actions, actions lead to results. Plan your results. But keep your guard up and your eyes open. Never forget the agendas of malevolent people who look to stop you or take your good results from you, because they want different results for you. Forewarned is forearmed.
5) Meditation is good. Use it to know yourself. Use it to analyze people around you and their motivations. Prayer — communication with the Power higher than yourself — is even better.
Buddhism is a study in how to become “detached” – aka numb and/or calloused. It assumes you live in isolation, and that isolation should be the goal. For you. For everybody.
Christianity is a recognition of the need for community, while acknowledging the dangers that carries. Trump is not a Buddhist. He built a life of his choosing, while recognizing the snakes in the swamp of life that need to be fended off. Every life has snakes to fend off. Sure, as Buddhism teaches, you can defeat yourself, but so can others defeat you if you fail to recognize what they’re doing, or what they’re trying to trick you into doing.
So now the Oakland Raiders have actually thrown a game to “get even” on their lead quarter back for refusing to piss on the U.S. flag & anthem!
I’m not sure who people’s favorite news sources are, so I just put it in a search engine and found there is a lot of talk at a lot of sources. I take archive snapshots, because front page news changes so fast, and because some things get scrubbed from the internet to protect the guilty.
The Mad Scientists Exposed radio show on Tuesday was discussing that all this lack of judgement by the players (of abusing their own paying fans) is likely due to all of the players having CTE (Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy). They’ve been able to posthumously diagnose it forever, but only this week (surprise surprise) CNN decided to report on a new blood test to identify CTE in the living (because a CTE-damaged brain puts out wonky protein numbers). I’ve been wondering since I first heard of CTE when the public would get tired of watching brain damaged, brain damaging ‘gladiators’, for a game.
In fact, since the NIH has papers identifying CTE since the 1920’s, I smell almost a century of NFL & NIH collusion to stall/suppress CTE research, so they could claim plausible deniability in signing on new players, because their field stallions are so profitable. What’s a few dead wives here and there when billions are at stake?
I know Trump & Rush are both football fans, but this is yet another medical scandal of the century that hast to break open. Of course the Raiders turned on QB Carr. The whole team is brain damaged.
You are not asking the right question in today’s NY Post. Of course Wall Street and the feds (you mean The Fed, who are not “the feds” at all, but a private corporation set up to serve the banks) can prevent another market plunge. The real question is, will they?
Not if they planned the crash, they won’t! And crashes don’t happen unless they are planned. (How do you get to be a financial writer and not know this?)
The Fed has been telegraphing in many places on the web (here, here, here, and here) in the last few weeks that they plan to scuttle the economy, certainly in time for the U.S. midterm elections. President Trump has taken notice, and telegraphs back he is considering breaking up the Wall Street banks. So I contend the crashes the banksters are planning will be no later than Jan 2018, to make sure people have time to “feel the pain”, and that the media can have several months to “blame Trump”, before people actually go to the polls.
Crashing the economy by the Fed, in regular profitable cycles, is not hard to trace. The stock market, the lending rates, the “tightness” of money. Wall Street is planning a big big crash, much bigger than 2008, a new recession, or even a full scale long term depression (as un-politically-correct as that word is), especially if the midterms go favorably for Trump. In fact, the more favorably the midterms go for Trump, the bigger a depression will be imposed, as revenge, on the American people for “voting incorrectly”.
You asked if they might be willing to save the stock market for themselves, since they have so much money of their own in it. Well, the answer is No. Because by the time they scuttle it, their money will be entirely out of the stock market, and entirely out of the U.S. dollar. Oh, you didn’t know? The banksters’ intention is to entirely scuttle the U.S. dollar, too, unless Trump does something about it. (There are things he can do, without even breaking up the banks.)
By now the population has figured out that “printing” money out of thin air as “loans”, while not printing enough money to pay the interest on those “loans”, is one big worldwide ponsi scheme, designed to drive defaults and reposessions, of the real wealth, people’s homes and businesses.
The blockchain & Bitcoin were invented as the killshot against the IMF/Fed style system, as practiced all over the world. It was, in fact, designed to excise the Fed & the central banks from the world economy. So of course its inventor concealed his identity. He knew what he had, and he valued his life.
After keeping the world on perpetually shrinking fiat currencies and in a perpetual state of war for centuries, so that the central banks can profit from collecting interest from both sides of every war, or profit from foreclosing on governments themselves for the mere powwwaaaaahhh of government ownership, the world has had enough. We’re done.
But of course the banksters are not going down without a fight. Wall Street and the Fed are responding with a new centralized bank-to-bank “cryptocurrency” of its own, “Ripple” (symbol-XRP), the antithesis of Bitcoin and others. Right now XRP is still dirt cheap, but that’s about to change, or so they think. They plan to lock up over 50% of XRP in escrow by the end of the 2017, in order to cause a run on it beforehand, in the hopes of crashing Bitcoin & the dollar simultaneously as people try to “move their money”. The banksters will have already begun affecting prices by dumping their own assets in the U.S. dollar, the stock market, and Bitcoin, for XRP. They have already made it incredibly hard to buy XRP directly with the U.S. dollar, without buying another cryptocurrency first. Why? Really, for the sole purpose of causing a pump & crash of non-XRP cryptocurrencies, especially Bitcoin, which they think people will dump for XRP, while they leverage XRP up. (As if.)
And then they think they will blame it all on Trump. No way are they going to “prevent another market plunge”. Crashing the economy is their last desperate grasping gasp at existence. Like Saddam Hussein burning all the oil wells in Iraq.
I know Chris is a bit hesitant about this, but I would like people to start learning about cryptocurrency, because I think long term, this is the way of the future, especially if Trump doesn’t manage to reign in the corruption at the Fed.
I’m writing now really, because I would like to encourage all of you to open CoinBase.com “wallet” accounts, (and possibly BlockChain.info accounts), so I can entice you all to take cryptocurrency seriously by sending you send you a few bucks in Bitcoin or Ethereum, for birthdays and/or holidays. Both Bitcoin and Ethereum are both on the move up, which is why I say open the account(s) now, and then read & watch whatever you want to or need to 😉
How the Fed works:
Still Report #1800 – The Money Masters3:29:54 (you might watch it on YouTube at double-speed)
This documentary explains the paradigm of how the “Central Bank” / “The Fed” money system really works. Ed and I watched it before Mom died, and it really really shook me up at the time. (There’s only one thing I can think of that is more diabolical.) It’s the primary cause of all poverty and war in the world.The concepts are not hard, but were so new to me, I had to watch it in 30min to 1hr segments to absorb it. Although it’s 20 years old and a little slow, but you will never regret having watched it, because it is every bit as relevant now as it was in 1913, and in 1996 when it was made, in fact, probably more so now. And now that more and more people are waking up to cryptocurrencies and their capped amounts, unless Trump gets the U.S. dollar off The Fed system, it is destined to collapse, and you don’t want to be holding much of it when that happens.
If you don’t believe me, sink it all into real estate, or gold in your own vault, but don’t let the banks be holding it. Or there are fixed-quantity cryptocurrencies, which people are using for real transactions, which makes it real money — but as people are realizing this, the cryptocurrencies are making their moves up, especially Bitcoin and Ethereum.The only reason The Fed has lasted these 104 years is because after the first 2 defeats of Fed-like systems by the Americans, (one by Obama’s hated, and Trump’s beloved Andrew Jackson), the Fed and the U.S. government colluded to remove instruction on how money works (crucial to keeping freedom) from the school curriciulums & all school text books.
But once you see how it all works, you can’t unsee it.
Below are modern day condensed versions of the above “Money Masters”, a little quicker paced, by the same guy, Bill Still, who made the 1996 original – he is still going strong with his own YouTube channel, which Ed and I never miss.
He’s got connections, including Trump himself who is a fan:
Still Report #313 – State Money vs Bank Money4:15
Still Report #875 – Donald Trump – Why Borrow When We Can Print? Economic Deficient Solution9:31
Still Report #759 – Trump – Pay off the Debt in 8 Years!10:24
The Fed Declares War on Trump, #14545:55
The Gold Solution is a Lie, #145712:34
Le Pen Supports State Money French Election Sunday #15877:46
– which is why the Banksters scuttled Marine La Pen’s campaign financially! (I believe the election of Macron was a rigged election anyway.)
It is my own analysis that cryptocurrencies are the only way to avoid joining the coming crash, unless Trump starts replacing Federal Reserve Notes with United States Notes. Pundits have not been saying this yet, because it will cause a panic and runs on the banks. Don’t believe the Fed propaganda that it is only The Fed that prevents bank runs. It is the Fed itself, and wars over who is issuing the money, that actually cause “bank runs”.
PS –For what it’s worth – Because Ethereum has already solved the transaction speed problem this Bitcoin split was designed to fix, several years from now, I see Ethereum as possibly the winner between these three, but for the moment, Bitcoin has the larger economy around it and is growing at a steeper slope.
This is not some “stock”. This is the beginning of a currency flash fire that eventually will take over the world the way the Internet took over the world because of the root concept — because it defangs the manipulated debt-based currency system of the central banks (including the private corporation deceptively named “The Federal Reserve”), and their artificially imposed booms & busts, depressions & recessions.
If Trump does not repeal and replace debt-backed U.S. Federal Reserve Notes with the sovereign U.S. Dollar, non-centralized cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are destined to eventually replace it without him.
I am not kidding.
Theresa asked for the link again where to create accounts. It’s not the only game in town for buying Bitcoin, but it is where most people start. The initial setup works a lot like PayPal.
Of course, the Three Wise Astrologers were the first to ever even acknowledge the Christ Child after his birth.
We have in Luke 21:25-28, Jesus telling us that signs in the Sun, Moon, & Stars will be announcing the return of the Son of Man.
InRevelation 12, we have John describing the formation of the end time constellation, announcing the end of the old age and the beginning of the new, which, gee, is happening next month (Sept 2017), and which has never happened before and will never happen again.
And so precisely at this amazing time, we are supposed to throw overboard all these signs in the skies from God and all people gifted by God to read these signs. I don’t think so.
Pope Francis, you have multiple times announced your disdain and hatred for your American Catholic flock. And now you announce your disdain for God the Creator of the Stars and Planets, as well The Christ Child Himself, the King of the Universe. Your arrogance is astounding. Since Jesus acknowledges the signs in the skies, I will too.
Hey, you wanna know the real reason Trump has ended the (forced and less than a year old) relationship between the military and trannies? The timing of the tweet announcing it was quite significant. It was because just the day before, he had officiated the launching of the new battleship, the USS Gerald R. Ford, and of course he had a tour of it. You know what he found?
Under the passive aggressive cover of “it was cheaper and would accommodate women sailors (and tranny sailors)”, it was really just another of Obama’s passive aggressive attempts to demean and SPIT on the majority of the military every chance he got. As if the forcing of Marines to train in pink high heals wasn’t bad enough, he intended to force all the men of the Navy to sit down to urinate on the rolling seas, like Hitler (or like Obama himself).
Obama demeaning our military members ANY WAY he could
@AnnCoulter, When TWA stopped serving even water on cross country flights, passengers stopped booking TWA and they folded.
@AnnCoulter, When Eastern started rebooking passengers on cheaper airlines & pocketing the difference, forcing paid on-time passengers to race pell-mell across airports just to catch their new flights, passengers stopped booking Eastern and they folded.
@AnnCoulter, When @United started beating paid seated passengers bloody just to seat company snobs, passengers stopped booking them, and we hope to have them fold by the end of 2017.
@AnnCoulter, .@Delta is a known serial passenger abuser, even bumping paid seated toddlers in the malicious hopes their parents will “willingly” follow them off the plane. Likewise, self-respecting passengers hope to force .@Delta to fold, too.
@AnnCoulter, Airlines think if passengers will still tolerate Obama’s holdover Security Theater Gate-Rapes by pervert TSA predators, that airlines can just dogpile on too, and that we’ll all just take it.
American-born German ridicules her former countrymen
You asked for feedback, here it is. I live in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona USA. We Arizonans are intelligent enough to know that heat comes from the SUN.
I am extremely angry. You made a baaaaaad political mistake insulting your own viewers by ridiculing them as “deniers”. Americans are simply allowed to read more science than Europeans are. The Goebbels-style censoring of non-pc speech in Europe, and especially in Germany, is notorious in the U.S. It is not possible for all scientists to “agree”. If they ever do, it’s not science. It’s politics, and they are “agreeing” out of fear of the pre-Galilean neanderthal sycophants of smarmy sneering Jeane-Claude Juncker & Angela Merkel.
1) The Scientific Evidence is that Earth’s climate changes are due to changes in the Sun’s solar cycles right now. It is NOT caused by humanity. How do we know this? Because the sun is in an unusually bright & hot period right now, and because of this global warming is going on on ALL the planets in the solar system right now. Not on just the Earth. So there is no possible way humanity can be affecting ALL the planets.
2) Even if humanity could cause global warming on all the planets in the solar system, there is no possible way illegally taxing Americans to pay the Chinese to keep polluting China while shutting down their own already much cleaner economy, will help in any way with cleaning up pollution on the earth, much less solving “climate change”. I remember how America used to smell long before you were born. Perpetual fumes in the air and all the fish in the Hudson were dead. So we were the people who STARTED “Earth Day”, and now America is a much cleaner, non-littering, recycling country. Not because we have to be taxed to leave clean. But because we CHOOSE to live clean.
You used to be American. Just what did you think “Freedom” meant? 1776 was all about throwing off the tax-sucking king of England, who was using taxes as economic warfare against his own colonies.
Don’t be a denier! This entire “Paris Agreement” had NOTHING to do with the “environment” and everything to do with illegally taxing Americans to pay for a foreign international slush fund, with all facts about where the money was actually going or how it was to be spent CONCEALED FROM VIEW. Corrupt indeed!
The entire thing is a fraud. And we’re not going to fall for it.
3) Since Americans have, and are anxious to share, the technology to produce clean energy and clean coal energy, shutting down the American coal industry for no reason would do nothing but maliciously shut down the American economy, in smarmy sneering economic warfare against the U.S.
This economic warfare against America has been going on for at least 30 years in the attempt to subdue and submit the U.S. to the modern day Third Reich called the E.U., and we’re on-to it. We are just not going to put up with it anymore.
You have NO idea of the depth of hatred Americans have for the anti-Americans Obama, Juncker, and Merkel. Tell Merkel for me that her little mustache is showing, and we are ready to take down the E.U. tanks she thinks she is going to send over here.
Apparently, the University of Arizona couldn’t gin up enough profitable false accusations of rapes against males on campus (the last actual case being 2 years ago), so now they are turning to false accusations of … what?… an ill-defined crime of “Micro-Aggressions”? Why?
Because colleges across the country are losing lawsuits over their false rape accusations that destroy their own students' lives.
So the U of A is piloting this new program of hiring student brown shirts to intimidate other students, using intentionally ill-defined terms, such as “micro-aggressions”, to accuse gullible young people of, so nobody can defend themselves from it, much less mount a counter-lawsuit to put a stop to it.
Because instigating fights over nothing while the administration stands back and holds the coats is sooooo profitable when it’s grant-funded, especially tax-payer grant funded. So my my my, how fascist liberals LOVE to stage profitable fake conflicts and have everyone boxing at shadows. That’s why they’re so hot for WW III with “the Russians”, but not with their own slave-owning chums, the Communist Chinese.
It’s time for the feds to DEFUND any grants, even any research grants of any sort, to the University of Arizona, and to any other universities with similar brown shirt programs, until they cease and desist all such brown shirt programs.
My brother and sister and I are all graduates of the Univ. of Arizona, so LISTEN CAREFULLY, UA. We will continue to refuse to contribute to your alumni funds, and will continue voting for Trump and anyone like him, until you cease and desist this kind of fascist social engineering by intimidation, or your doors are shuttered permanently. All three of us have made sure that none of our combined eight children ever went, or will ever go, to the Univ. of Arizona.
We’re not the only ones. The reputation of the U of A STINKS. The beginnings of the U of A’s cesspool of ever constricting filthy contempt-for-conservative-students and overt hatred of any non-atheist / non-communist, was already starting well over 30 years ago at the U of A. The hatred of Ronald Reagan dripped from every corner of the campus.
So now its sister university, NAU, has made the national news at least twice (here, and here) in just the last month, with this same kind of fascist garbage, as it cheerfully sells itself to its own students as among the campuses with the highest rape rates in the U.S. (here, here), true or false, but which they seem to think encourages students to attend. Everyone loves predators, don’t they. Why box at shadows when you can import real sociopaths? But then there’s, ASU which is well known among Arizonans as an even bigger cesspool than either the UA or NAU, and indefensible accusations of “micro-aggression culture” make a so much bigger mud pie to throw around than unprovable accusations of “rape culture”.
So people reading this, DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO ANY ARIZONA STATE SCHOOL. They will either be targeted by university Brown Shirt Fascists, or worse, BECOME ONE.
