My new workplace in my office was in a different room with entirely new faces sitting next to me, due to corona I got seated away. A co-worker and I got into a casual talk; we did not know each other at all. Nothing was going on at work, so we had a lot of time to chat. We got to know each other throughout the day, and as it got darker outside, he started talking about his investments in cryptocurrencies. I exchanged stocks before, so I wanted to know more, and I was interested in discussing it. He spoke…


We cannot build a time machine. Traveling back 10 years from now and buying Bitcoin does not work. All we are left with is watching Bitcoin’s price skyrocket away, leaving us enjoying the ride and being sad about the price Bitcoin will never go back to, and we missed the chance of buying it. Possessing one Bitcoin nowadays is a privilege that not many people can enjoy. Since there is only 22 million Bitcoin on the planet, most of us will not owe one full Bitcoin. Approximately 4 million of the 22 have been lost on keys that can not…


Bitcoin panic is notorious. People are terrified by the idea that Bitcoin can go in a bearish direction. As soon as Bitcoin abandons its trend in a bull market, panic picks up. The bloodbath after 2018 has still left its scars on many Bitcoiners. Therefore, it is a common sight to people selling out of panic because everyone is doing so too. Many have lost a lot of gains or money because they sold in the trend, few have held on to their coins in 2018, but those are the ones with good profits now in 2021. But how can…


This article is a thought-experiment and by no means fact.

For a long time, human beings have told themselves that if we can control something and bend its workings’ rules to our advantage, we would exploit it ethically (or not). By exploitation, we often enriched ourselves and never really thought about the consequences of doing it. This is a repeating pattern of mistakes done over and over again, and even history books tell the same story.

The human life cycle is relatively short.

The problem with that is that new generations have not experienced the hardships of their elderly relatives…


“Bitcoin is a Ponzi scheme” and “Bitcoin has no value” are my favorite Keynesian counter-arguments to why Bitcoin is a valuable investment alternative. For many years, Bitcoiners had to endure the Wallstreet’s bashing and institutional investors that saw Bitcoin as a no-go. It felt like a cult, organized against the magical internet bean that everyone underestimated. However, the cult is now part of the Ponzi scheme, and there are only a few lefts to preach the flaws of Bitcoin. What has changed? Why is suddenly everyone jumping onto the train?

After seeing 2018, Bitcoins’ increase in price became more important…


Understanding the value of Bitcoin means recognizing its properties as useful. Bitcoins value is of subjective nature. To understand what this means, we must dig deep. We need to know how Bitcoin is created and why its properties contribute to its price. Every average person sees that Bitcoin has no commodity that it is backed by. There is no centralized authority that can inflate money as they wish. Bitcoin derives its value because it is of enormous importance to the free market right now. So, let me answer this question at the end for you. …


Trading cryptocurrencies can be a nerve-wracking experience. It involves you being busy doing your due diligence all the time, but you probably are scared off by the rate of volatility that cryptocurrencies offer. This guide will educate you to do the right thing and trade clear patterns that dramatically reduce your risk. Let me take your fear.

Indicators to use for this strategy

Before we get started, we need to setup up our indicators. Indicators will help you find a reference point on the chart. You should not use them to find trades. Indicators are called Indicators because they only…


Asset-classes worldwide are increasing in value, while every inflationist country is pumping more and more money into its communities, many will nonetheless lose their jobs. All this causes the gap between poor and rich to become as straightforward as it has never been before. Money is printed and handed out as if the world would not understand the concept of exchange anymore. Lockdowns and the pandemic have driven us into a need for cash that has never been experienced like this ever before. Our addiction and demand for money are growing by any minute. But what can we do? …


How often have I heard the sentence, “we need inflation so prices can increase”? Uncountable times. Inflation is seen and understood as a good thing in many economists’ and politicians’ minds. Inflationists institutionalized our economies for 100 years and have twisted the average consumer’s mind. The indoctrination of the inflationist mind has blinded the consumer and robbed him of his principles. Let me explain.

The psychology behind the Inflationist economies is that the government tries to prevent economic recessions by inflating the domestic currency to help people that need money. Money printing since 2008 has not stopped. The fact is…


I feel the storm, a breeze whips my face, the wrath of the community is entering this post. I am scared, I am trying to run, but the angry mob of Bitcoiners chases me, hunting me down, help me…

As many of my followers know by now, I am a Bitcoin fanatic. This post has no intention of degrading Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrencies. Because I know Bitcoin, believing that it is not for everyone is a crucial part of my understanding of it. That Bitcoin overtakes the world and will be the only monetary system that exists is utopic…
