Hello, crypto enthusiasts. Thanks for stopping by again. This is just a quickie for tonight. I mean it’s night where I am — in Florida (United States). You Europeans are dead asleep by now, but hey, you’ll open your emails in the morning. And you Asian folk, you’re getting off of work about now. I’m not sure about you Aussies. You guys (and gals) are what, eating dinner and watching the news about North Korea? Guam on your minds?
As usual, I’ve been scanning the net for the scoops. Watching the markets for the fizz and pop. And here’s the latest curiosity I’ve managed to dig up from the fintech ether. And mind you, the people (person) I may cite herein may not have the cleanest resumes, but damned if they don’t get your spaz juices flowing.
Bitcoin and Ethereum seem to be in the keeping modes right now. Meaning they are looking great. Clif High, and he’s a bit of a, how can I say this nicely — an unusual chap? But I’m not one for killing the messenger, even if he is a bit burnt, if you catch my drift.
And that’s why I’ve been chomping at the bit today and yesterday. Kind of mulling this whole thing over. Trying to align my belief in a gold backed (silver backed) monetary system with the alleged future facts (and ideas) Clif High is constantly bringing to the table.
But I can’t really do it justice and I do not work for Clif. Don’t know him from Adam, as it were. Yet the guy is able to explain, in words and ideas — in a few seconds — to sort of encapsulate what many of us might think. How bitcoin (cryptocurrency) may, within the next 10 to 20 years, undo thousands of years of stagnant and centralized money control. How this new world of crpyto can serve as a shot-in-the-arm for economies, for wealth, technological development and so on. That, according to Clif, America (the U.S.) split from Great Britain when about 3% of the people wanted it. That only about 1% or less of people, now want bitcoin or cryptocurrency. That, if this margin reaches 10%, the governments of the world, which are always behind the times, will be unable to stop it. That, the iron is heating up and you may be able to make some serious cash, if you invest soon. That is what Clif is implying, I believe.
These are very positive statements in a lot of ways, in my book.
But, I hope that Clif’s inexplicable descriptions, his references to the unusual and seemingly unproven, are not, in some ways, infecting his ability to maintain his rationality. As far as I can see, his “predictions” have raised eyebrows for several years now. But are his prognostications simply too general? Too crazy?
He talks about silver prices skyrocketing — for a time.
Gold’s just sort of okay, as far I can judge by Clif’s statements.
New tech that will create matter from energy is only a few years away. So why mine gold or silver in say, 15 years?
Potential limited nuclear wars are on the horizon.
But by and large, the outlook is very positive, in Clif’s assessments.
He didn’t talk about my current favorite crypto’s though: Neo and Iota.
Please — you be the judge. Give this guy a listen. Tell me that he does not, in some weird way, make you very positive about the future of our world.
Here’s his latest talk. It’s long — a YouTube interview.
