  1. Anybody had a dabble? If you put £100 in Bitcoin 10 years ago, you'd be a millionaire now If you put £500 in five years ago, you'd be a millionaire now I put £750 in Crypto including Bitcoin 5 weeks ago and it's now worth £1500. Anybody else involved?

    Coronavirus

    'Covid deaths' Even the BBC are now reporting this caveated as saying many of the deaths will not be caused by Covid. Less than half the people in hospital with Covid are being treated primarily for Covid, and that number is rapidly dropping.

    I see good news is still bad news in here!

    Coronavirus

    They haven't. That's just how many were reported. Just to restate the glaringly obvious, when millions of people test positive over a 28 day period, a certain percentage of deaths amongst that group of people are inevitable. Wait for ONS data to see how many deaths Covid is causing. It's also worth - for the sake of comparison - bearing in mind that at this time of year in a bad flu season, 250 people per day could be dying.

    I'm not talking about inflection. I am talking about the amount of USD in circulation. Some valid criticisms, some regurgitated propaganda. BTC is not perfect, blockchain is not perfect for a currency, but decentralised currency is the way to go. It reduced the power in the hands of the few and produces a more equitable currency system. I don't feel comfortable knowing that the IMF has so much power. I don't like hearing ideas such as expiry dates on currency, so you spend it or lose it. I'm obviously not some crusader for fairer economics, and I am speculating because I want to pay my mortgage off, and this is akin to the goldrush, but with that said, I do think decentralisation is necessary, I do think that crypto, blockchain and DAG are stepping stones to a better global economy. While governments can just print money willy-nilly we will always have the military industrial complex, we will always have money being syphoned into already bulging private pockets. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.

    Either that, or that have some compromising information on that bunch of unconscionable shithouse fucks!

    Just out of interest, if you could either save a human being or a cow from death, but only one of them, would you have a dilemma choosing which one?

    Boris Johnson

    Well, he prioritised animals over humans, which even if you're vegan, is still a pretty crazy list of priorities. Then he brazenly liked about it. It is a story.

    This is absolutely not true. I know lots of people who are far from Tory's that cannot stand the drippy politics-playing cunt! Me included

    The UK is proper fucked. No individual responsibility. No collective responsibility. No rule of law for certain people. We're not that far away from removing the façade of democracy altogether.

    I don't think they've had to dip their hand in their pockets yet. They are averaging over 8000 for a home gate and apparently have match day revenues of £200k. Added to that the sponsorship from the likes of TikTok and Tripedia. Big win last night, just 3 points off top now and have collected more points from the last 36 than all but 4 teams in the top five divisions.

    Somewhere in the red. Or maybe earlier, so much innovation still happening. But then, I'm no innovator, so yeah, red.

    But if I had $100,000 in the bank 12 months ago, it is now worth about $71k. This is just so we can perpetuate the impossible concept of continual growth. I do think hyperinflation is a real risk to fiat currencies.

    It's the scarcity of gold which is what provides the price and store of value. BTC is obviously less mature as a market, so more volatile. I'm not suggesting BTC will replace all currencies, I think that's very unlikely, but as a speculative store of wealth it is miles above any other digital asset. People have been having arguments about it's like a intrinsic value since it was worth a few dollars. I'm not here to convince anyone, and I don't actually invest in BTC, but crypto has a clear future. The CEO of YouTube has just left to join xPolygon. This is where innovation is heading. I'll just stick this here:

    GBP and the USD are not tied to the gold standard and haven't been for some time. So what is their value? 40% of all USD has been minted in the last 12 months. Whereas BTC is a finite and ultimately deflationary coin. The obsession that it needs to be tied to something is bizarre. What actually makes gold valuable other than the fact that it is in demand?

    $1 is aspirational. I think it'll trade at above 30 cents for sure. My target is 55 cents.
