Unless you’ve been living under a rock you already know the guy behind WikiLeaks, who was living at an Ecuadorian embassy in London, was recently arrested and now facing extradition to the United States – the country I’m originally from – and the country which forces tax payers to fund the second-largest stockpile of nuclear weaponry ever created.
But perhaps you didn’t know that WikiLeaks was at one point hosted by Amazon. Yep, right up until political pressure caused them to take it down. Afterall, nothing says freedom like a fear of misbehavior in a country with the highest incarceration rate in the entire world. I suppose Julian Assange’s situation could be worse… Maybe, had he also been practicing Falun Gong in China. But I digress. And there’s no telling what’s going to happen.
10 months ago I took a trip to Bali and spent a couple weeks living in a boutique hotel turned coliving apartment at a place called Roam Ubud. During my stay I met all kinds of interesting people including serial entrepreneurs, digital nomads, lifestyle bloggers, iOS developers and even a feng shui author.
Of all the chance encounters I had during my trip to Bali one individual stood out. His name was Robin. And I’ll never forget Robin because he sold me my first bitcoin.
One of the first things you’ll learn when you create your first bitcoin wallet is to set-up 2FA. The two most common forms of 2FA today are standard telephony and security tokens, which come in both the hard and soft and variety.
If we took hard U2F tokens off the table, we’re left with software and telephony. Which of the two would you choose? Well, it depends. Let’s explore.
Anyone who invested in bitcoin just before the August hard fork and simply held it for three months has already more than tripled their original investment.
As the next bitcoin hard fork approaches the value of Bitcoin is lifting. Here’s how you can take advantage of Bitcoin’s volatility as it moves up and down with very little risk as the price fluctuates before and after the fork.
I’m no Pliny the Elder but I’m here to tell you there’s a gold rush occurring in the cryptocurrency mining space. Whether you’ve just overcome your Bitcoin investing fears or already hold tokens from some wild new ICO you too can mine cryptocurrencies like ETH ETC XMR and more. It’s easy! Here’s how…
Bitcoin saw a 355% return during the first 8 months of 2017. And some believe it may be worth as much as 500,000 per coin by 2030. But hanging onto your bitcoin doesn’t do you much good if you HODL it forever.
So what’s the best way to convert bitcoin into cash? Well, you could transfer it between wallets in exchange for cash on the spot. Or you could spend time trying to find a bitcoin ATM. But why go through the hassle?
If you need an easy way to spend some of your bitcoin without paying any fees what are you going to do? Well, the answer is pretty easy—get yourself a BitPay VISA card and spend without paying fees.
