    Hi, Martin's blogged on Bitcoins and cryptocurrencies. Have a read of it here:

    Bitcoin: Four things you need to know

    Back to unitedwestand's original post...


    Searching the main MSE site for "Bitcoin" returns 8 results, "Blockchain 1 result & Cryptocurrencies 1 & 3 of these results are for the same single article.

    Doing the same on the UK Governments website, Bitcoin 16 results, Blockchain 23 results & Cryptocurrencies 9 results.

    Whereas searching for the term "money" returns 184k results on MSE and only 18k on Gov.UK and "Cash" 181k results on MSE and 7k on

    This technology is undoubtedly the biggest financial revolution in the past decade and has the potential to empower & save the average person in every single element of what MSE covers.

    Does MSE intentionally avoid covering it's evolution or will there be plans to dedicate forums and webpages to it in the future?

    I'd really like to see that

    Does that include Microsoft, Virgin, Expedia, Paypal, Dell, Bloomberg, Tesla, T-mobile etc who all use it?

    Or maybe you could give a clue how it couldn't?

    I'd stay clear of anything Bloomberg uses because it'll probably blow up like the Falcon 9.
    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    Personally I find the idea of a tamper-proof car maintenance document have more useful:

    I only started trading a few weeks ago. After bitcoin rose in price I questioned what the hell I was doing with my life.

    Everyone wants to be rich for doing nothing, right? People always told me that wasn't possible, but with Bitcoin I just missed the only opportunity our generation will probably ever get. People DID get rich by getting some and then doing absolutely nothing. The possibility was always there - and I missed it. I even had the freaking wallet on my computer, tried mining and thought 'oh, it takes a few hours to get one coin? I'll pass.' I could be a millionaire, but now I'm just sitting here crying about it.

    In the end there's nothing I can do about that anymore. And now people are telling me 'it's too late to get into crypto'. But now I've decided not to listen to them anymore. If I lose the money, I'll lose the money. But I can't say I haven't tried. And if I make it, I'll be rich.

    That being said - I've found this Telegram group that sends out some REALLY good signals. I've been in several, but all of them seemed to prey on people by just dumping when the coins should be pumping. And then you're left holding bags. But the signals they send out here are mostly holds over a week or two. The price slowly grows, then spikes and you'll walk away with a lot of profit. Here's the link:
    Search for 'CryptoMoon' on Telegram.

    I know, I know. You probably think this is another attempt to scam you out of your coins, but I assure you it's not. I'm not trying to take anything from you - I just want to inform you about the best way I found to get in on some altcoins before they blow up.
    There's absolutely no risk involved. Just join the free group and get some signals. Not all of them might hit, but the majority do, and that will certainly leave you with a lot of profit. If you're skeptical, just join and wait for the next signal without investing. And then decide for yourself if the group is worth your time. There's also a premium option if you're interested, but you better check that out for yourself in the group.

    Good luck to all of you.

    Having read all the opinions of different users, My advice would be if you are considering investment, is to look into the Alternative Coins. Bitcoin isn't the be all and end all, infact in terms of comparing currency, bitcoin is like the euro or the the dollar. You notice how i said "Euro OR Dollar"... That's correct the next big Crypto-Coin is still out there!!!!

    One such coin to possible consider is "DigiByte", this is the ONLY coin that has a active development team, who have in-fact implemented digishield tech into Bitcoin, it is also the only coin ready to handle more transactions per second than Visa/Mastercard and Amex all put together.

    Digibyte's price has recently boomed, just as Bitcoins did in the early days, maybe it's one to keep an eye. I personally am looking to refer to this post in the future as a "Told you so" but please bear in mind to think carefully before investing in any coin.

    My 2 Cents worth for 10 cents back. See You soon Doc as we go back to the future!!!!
