    I take for my Calculations a very powerful app: "Crypto Investment Calculator".
    The app can calculate long term investment and with the wanted Percent Daytrades. She even has the live course of the respective coin. It’s at the moment only for android, but the programmer said: “We are programming this App in the next time for IOS”.

    I have several conversation with my China 🇨🇳 counter part. The Japanese its waiting for the bitcoin to down further I can’t remember the price. As far I am concern, once the bitcoin meet their requirement index. They will pump in hundred millions of $. As China will let go 50% off n Channel to another coin which nobody knows On Jan to Feb 2019. Lots of institution I have discussed nobody can give an actual answer. I won’t be surprised the coin might drop to $2000 as their indication. The biggest control might end up in Japan n China. We re monitoring .....just watch 🙏🏻🙏🏻

    No risk, no reward. Besides...while they entertain you with empty shows like this, the big institutions are buying crypto behind the scenes. I dont know about you, but I'm paying attention to THEM. (They pulled the same crap when the dot com bubble happened. They spewed the same crap. Shows like this are for entertaining. NOT informing. Sure, they give you tidbits, but not what the big movers are doing.
    Keep that in mind. The worlds a stage and these puppets dance to distract the easily entertained.

    Here is how I "speculate:" Suppose you were "Commander Madpup," a Psychological Warfare officer for the Office of Naval Research, and you wanted to study ways to Destroy The Enemy using Economic Sabotage and Civilian Manipulative Deployments to Erode the Enemy's Capacity and Will to Fight. Therefore, you use your UARC Supercomputer teams in Maui, Sandia, and at MITRE corporation to launch "Operation TULIPMANIA," a wide-field live psyop Exercise to test methods to engineer and break speculative bubbles and gather surveillance data to guage their effectiveness using cryptocurrency test munitions you have created and launched covertly. You also test coinsurgency methods by engaging in Psyop war-games with a different service branch such as the DIA, which enlists such as HUMANINT Agent TWISTOLIVER using field action technique REASONAPPEAL's effectiveness against assaultive field action technique WASSA. In the process, you would, of course, tip off ICECREAMLICK and BOHO about all operating procedures and timeline.

      Well... That is technically how it works nowadays, but there's more to it then that, and your language is deliberately alarmist.
      I'll spare you the lecture on why paper currency does, in fact, hold value, and just strike at the weak point of your argument. For the sake of expedience, 'Intrinsic' means 'Belonging Naturally,' as in holding value without everyone agreeing that it does.
      Gold does not have intrinsic value. It is a soft, heavy, useless metal that everyone has agreed has value due to it being rare and shiny. If the apocalypse happened tomorrow and you were the last man on earth, your gold would be worthless without anyone to trade it with. In fact, the 'useless' bills would have more value, because you could burn them for warmth.
      In fact, the very words I type have no intrinsic meaning. They are useless symbols on an LED screen, that only have meaning due to our mutual agreement that they do, in fact, mean something.
      Value is a castle built on a foundation of itself. If you fail to accept that, well... I look forward to your philosophy lecture detailing how nothing is real because we cannot prove that reality itself is intrinsic. I can always do with a laugh, and there's nothing funnier then watching someone adopt too broad a perspective and lose their damned mind.

    most cryptos (the mined ones) are not fiat. In other words, it is not made real by decree. Its value is not perceived within an agreement reality and nor is it legitimized by one. Also, blockchain is NOT a payment system for corporate and State actors. There is only one crypto in the entire asset class that can be regarded as such and they are taking over SWIFT. In fact, they already have more than 100 former SWIFT customers. And they already have a market cap of $22 billion, an average 24hr trading volume of $1.8 billion, and I digress.

    And how about fundraising? The top coins by market cap (like EOS) are the brain children of ultra rich tech entrepreneurs and former c-level executives from Facebook, Google, and so on. They fund their own crypto/blockchain projects and they buy their own coins. If they start out by selling worthless tokens to greedy maniacs its not because they want the money for lambos. It is about making sure your customers have some skin in the game. If you believe as I do that we all vote with our dollars than you would understand how this might be a good way of adding quality, credibility, and most important of all, loyalty, to a first to market product and/or service. It generates goodwill and is also used for other reasons that Im not going into here because I have gone long enough the way it is. But Ill tell you what this crypto stuff is really about before I end this. Its about removing paper currency from circulation while forcing people into digital identities that exist only in a digital world where everyone and everything can be tracked, monitored, and controlled with the click of a mouse. It is going to change everything. That part was actually true.

    Just a few notes: -. You forget that Fiat Currency is "backed" by "nothing" only words and promises.
    -. Crypto currency is backed by Data and information which is more valuable than promises.
    -. Remember George Carlin, he was telling people how stupid they are, but they were still buying it.
    -. Ancient strategies. Creating a problem which you can only solve.
