Bitcoin

The idea of bitcoin might be completely foreign to you. But if you’re here then you’ve probably at least heard about it.

You might have heard about the incredible price gains it’s seen over the last seven years. You probably now know that bitcoin is worth double the price of physical gold (at the time of writing).

And now you’ve probably come to the realisation that bitcoin is something you must know more about. Good. You’re in the right place.

Should you buy Bitcoin?

Here we’ll be able to help you understand about bitcoin, learn how to invest in bitcoin, learn how to buy and sell bitcoin. And importantly, learn what the price of bitcoin is going to do, and how can you get a slice of the action.

You might also be a seasoned pro when it comes to bitcoin. And that’s great too. You see, we’ll be able to help all levels of knowledge learn more about bitcoin — but also the thriving, burgeoning world of cryptocurrencies.

Other Cryptocurrencies to buy

Cryptocurrencies? That too might be a new term for you. But again, don’t fear. It’s something we’ve been involved in since 2013. In fact, we don’t know of any other financial analysts who have been covering, researching, investigating, investing in and understanding everything there is to know about bitcoin and cryptocurrencies from the early days.

We’ll try to keep it all as simple as we can, but some parts might get a little challenging. We encourage you to stick with it, and do your best to immerse yourself in the world of bitcoin and cryptocurrency.

What we should also probably do right now is also let you know that we think bitcoin and cryptocurrency are in the earliest stages of changing the entire global banking and finance system.

We think they will be around for hundreds, maybe thousands of years to come. And right now you have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to use these new financial instruments to build wealth for now, tomorrow and generations to come.

Bitcoin & Cryptocurrency opportunities

Bitcoin and cryptocurrency are perhaps the single most exciting, explosive, fascinating and dangerous new financial opportunity the world has ever seen.

It’s the ultimate anti-establishment system. It’s revolutionary technology, which has the potential to completely change how we think about and manage our finances in the 21st century and beyond.

Thanks to the political environment and the ineffectiveness of government and central banks, the time is now perfect to see the world of bitcoin and cryptocurrency flourish.

And that’s exactly what it’s doing.

The risks of Bitcoin & Cryptocurrencies

We will also highlight the fact that this new, gigantic opportunity also carries incredible risk. It’s not regulated. There’s no central intervention. There are no rules. It is the true Wild West.

The fiat price of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are volatile. But as we’ve said since we first started covering bitcoin in 2013, the long term goal is that, once you buy bitcoin, you’ll never convert it back to fiat currency again.

And while you might be able to buy a fancy TV with one bitcoin today, in the near future we think you might easily be able to use one to buy a car…or maybe even a house.

Bitcoin and cryptocurrency are possibly the biggest wealth creation opportunity the world has ever seen. It gives every man and woman a chance to make a fortune.

While the potential and opportunity are enormous, there is also incredible risk.

But if you’re prepared to accept the risk, and prepared to enter what could be the biggest investment opportunity of your life, then welcome to the cryptocurrency revolution.

When a Country Dies a Crypto Boom Is Born

If crisis hits again, people will flee the traditional system. They'll realise the current system isn’t as safe as they think. They’ll want something else. And crypto will be there, ready, waiting for them.

Too Late for Facebook, but You’re Just on Time

But while investors have been more interested in the price of cryptos, companies are interested in the underlying technology — blockchain. It’s been around for a while, but let’s have a quick refresher. The best way to describe blockchain is to think of a ledger.

Why Chapmans Ltd Share Price Jumped Higher Today

At the time of writing, shares of Chapmans Limited are up by 14.29%, to 0.8 cents, in today’s trading. Last week, Chapmans raised AU$4.552 million, comprising of AU$1.59 million in equity and AU$2.962 million in unsecured convertible loans due at 30 June.

Why Bitcoin’s Price Climbed More Than $1,000 Overnight

The price of bitcoin exploded overnight, rising from US$6,870 (AU$8,859.21) to US$8,034.17 (AU$10,360) in an hour, according to prices quoted from Coindesk. There’s no one specific piece of news that can be pointed to as being solely responsible for the sudden jump. Instead, it seems that a number of factors came together at the same time.

How to Have Your Say on Tax and Crypto: Part Two

These are my own personal views on how the Australian Tax Office should be approaching the crypto revolution. Public consultation is a positive step forward. Hopefully they’ll take on board a common sense approach and interact more with those on the inside of this revolution.

How to Have Your Say on Tax and Crypto: Part One

The ATO has put out a public consultation on their application of antiquated existing tax law and the new crypto revolution. Through their ‘Let’s Talk’ portal anyone can make a public submission on the treatment of crypto for tax purposes. I’ve made my submission already, and I felt it important to share my feedback to the ATO with you as well.

If We Ban Bitcoin then We Must Ban Government

There’s a spate of horrible news doing the rounds about bitcoin. It’s got nothing to do with the value, price, or even the technological progress of bitcoin. It’s the media and those in power using bitcoin as a scapegoat. They’ve found respite, a diversion from the spotlight that’s been sharply focused on them recently.

One of the Best Assets to Own

Bitcoin isn’t the best asset coming out of the crypto space. Well, not yet anyway. The best assets in the crypto world are the toll bridges all crypto investors have to go through. The ASX Ltd [ASX:ASX] is a great company. They are one of the most profitable market operators in the world. They act as a toll bridge between investors and securities like stocks, futures and options.

Crypto: Mainstream or Not?

I wondered, is crypto really mainstream? Or is it still just a fringe idea, an edge of the bell curve concept that most people still have no real idea about? My conclusion is that most of the mainstream say they’re in crypto, but the reality is they’re really not.
