The price of bitcoin has reached the landmark milestone of $18,000 per BTC across global exchanges after having an incredible run during November and December of 2017.

Bitcoin is serious business, but not so serious that it can’t afford to laugh at itself. It was inevitable that someone would commission a bitcoin movie sooner or later, and in the event that honor has gone to Christian Cashmir. The little known filmmaker is producing “Bitcoin”, a comedy romp that looks set to tick off every cliche in the book. Also read: Danish Billionaire Renames the Rungsted Capital Ice Rink to ‘Bitcoin Arena’ Brace Yourselves: Bitcoin Banter is Coming Bitcoin has had plenty of screen time this year, but has yet to grace the silver screen. News segments and the odd documentary, while attesting to bitcoin’s meteoric rise, lack the glamor of a full-length feature. Christian Cashmir is on a mission to set that right with his forthcoming movie, simply titled Bitcoin. The eponymous flick looks like it’s going for the low hanging fruit and obvious laughs based on what plot points have emerged so far. Armed with 20 guesses, the average bitcoiner would probably venture t..

The SDR was created in 1969 using the Bretton Woods exchange system, and before 1973 it contained the value of 0.8 grams of gold. Th..
The Satoshi Revolution: A Revolution of Rising Expectations. Section 1 : The Trusted Third Party Problem Chapter 3: Trying to Undo Satoshi by Wendy McElroy Do You Want a Government Fiat Crypto? (Chapter 3, Part 4) It is the ability of governments to acquire money without direct taxation that makes modern warfare possible, and a central bank has become the preferred method of accomplishing that….[T]here can be no debate over the fact that fiat money in time of peace has no such justification….Therefore, it is not an exaggeration to say that the Federal Reserve System encourages war.” –G. Edward Griffin, The Creature From Jekyll Island Central Bank-Issued Digital Currency (CBDC) is a national currency that issues from a central bank. It is the crypto counterpart to a physical currency, such as the U.S. dollar. It is also a bitter irony. A monetary wildcat (crypto) meant to undermine the world’s financial system (central banks) is being caged and tamed to serve the status quo. At leas..

She assumed her seat nearly a dozen years ago by a slim margin of victory, but her reelection in 2012 saw her easily defeat the challenger by 25 points. Though Mr. Petersen is considered a long shot to even win the Republican Party nomination, Ms. McCaskill is con..
