Description

This is episode 259 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast.

Earlier this week, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin said the days of mad crypto gains are behind us. Since most people now know that crypto exists, it’s no longer physically possible for interest in Bitcoin to multiply as much as it has in the past. After all, the world population is finite.

This sounds reasonable. But as one might expect, crypto media (Twitter, in particular) tore Vitalik to shreds. No one wants to hear that their investments will never moon. So naturally, we should verbally abuse anyone who would suggest such things.

On today’s show, we’ll do our best to respectfully disagree with Vitalik. And in doing so, we’ll turn the whole conversation upside down. Bitcoin’s value may never skyrocket quite like it has before, but we’ll consider the very real possibility that other (fiat) currencies will tank.

This will lead us to some related conversations about Bitcoin economics and recent crypto news. Caitlin Long is worried that sloppy Wall Street practices will find their way into crypto as ETFs and other derivatives emerge. And the Winklevoss twins finally got approval for a dollar-backed cryptocurrency that some are calling a stablecoin.

Tune in for all the fun tonight at 9PM Eastern and check the list below for some of the specific stuff we’ll cover!

  • The “Tax Honesty” movement has demonstrated a few things to a lot of people.  To cover a lot with a few words, I’ll put it this way:  The IRS breaks its own rules in order to rob us through deceit. Some people (Irwin Schiff, for example) have suffered because they attempted to protect themselves from the rule-breakers.  There is now a theory popular among liberty-minded people that the government is too corrupt and powerful for anyone to succeed in an effort like Irwin Schiff’s.  There is also some good evidence showing this theory to be wrong.  It’s available at Peter Hendrickson’s website, losthorizons.com. I think that a lot of bureaucrats feel and believe that they are helping society.  This leaves them open to consider fixing situations in which their bureaucracy is breaking its own rules.  And let’s face it, there are some rules that can actually help liberty.  Perhaps the loads of evidence that Hendrickson has on his site can be explained by the presence of such “good-hearted” individuals in the bowels of the IRS. In any case, if you can, please entertain the possibility that the US Income Tax is not being administered honestly.  Consider that maybe, just maybe, in the gargantuan tangle of words called “Title 26,” the legal meaning of the law as it applies to most people is not coercive at all.  Maybe, if it were properly applied, the government would be a nuisance like neighbors who let their dogs poop on your lawn, instead of a nuisance like cancer in your lungs.  It could be true.  I think it is true, and I think that failing to follow all the twists and turns that Hendrickson uncovered to see for yourself that it is true kind of justifies you still being enslaved to a government that steals from you in order to cause havoc all over the planet in a massive deception that justifies its existence. If we want to honor the goodness in all people, including those who have been tricked into serving evil, we can do so by understanding the rules they think they should be following, and using them to protect ourselves from enslavement.

  • Trevon James has reported that to the reporter that, notwithstanding, the maker had as of late observed a portion of his accounts for their entertainment regard. To the degree YouTube characters go, James is doubtlessly not the most exceedingly terrible, and his 120,000 supporters on that stage show it. Here he is in January, not a long time before the drapery truly began to close on the BitConnect scheme, talking about it. By then he was at the same time defending BCC and its executives, saying that “in case they expected to deceive” they could have as of late left with everything starting at now. Note this is actually what BitConnect did sometime in the future………… News Source: TheCoinRepublic

  • The importance of digital marketing has increased significantly in the last few years. E-commerce and the web are used more than they have ever been before. Online stores and services have proven true that it is on the web and at our fingertips. The main problem which is encountering for cryptocurrency users is choosing a reliable cryptocurrency wallet. What is BitcoinGenX? BitcoinGenX (BGX) is truly a 2-in-1 innovative cryptocurrency aiming to change the way cryptocurrencies are perceived and how they can be beneficial to the future for financial institutions. BitcoinGenX is POS+ zPoS Hybrid cryptocurrency forked wallet and it also includes customized Zerocoin Protocol. BitcoinGenX aims to provide innovation and positive change to the world by promoting both eco-friendly and privacy solutions in the blockchain industry. For the BtcGenX holder, it will be extremely beneficial to hold BGX as the algorithm is Proof-of-stake/Masternode. That means that the only way to mine/mint BGX coins is by holding and staking coins. Once the coin holder has enough coins for a masternode, they will profit from higher rewards. BitcoinGenX cannot be mined by GPU (Graphics Cards) or CPU (Central Processing Unit) as we believe it would be unfair for user’s wealthy in equipment to benefit more than those who don’t have such tools available. The BGX reward, directly flows back into the value of BGX coin holders, in proportion with their current stake. This means coin holders make the money. BitcoinGenX is having a fantastic marketing team which will plan a customized beneficial package to the small and large businesses. It will be designed to have to drop down boxes whereby the users can select their target markets, even targeted media platforms, with easy advertising package solutions to meet their goals. BitcoinGenX Management Team The BitcoinGenX management team is committed to expanding the blockchain platform to be at the forefront of changing the world to a more efficient and safe place using these technologies. We monitor the industry and comply with regulations while being transparent with the community at large. With our products being made, we aim to dominate our niche markets by creating easy to adopt, functional products to ensure the industry’s success. We are creating a hub (all-in-one) digital marketing platform, whereby large corporations, small businesses, and individuals alike can all bring about big savings and promote their products or services with our easy marketing process. We will also be creating a website that links together our centralized and decentralized exchanges, with offering a choice between the two, as we feel it should be the users choice. All fees are payable with BitcoinGenX coin for both platforms. BitcoinGenX was interviewed by our team prior to this publication. Here are their responses to questions we posed: Question: How and when did you get the idea? BitcoinGenX: When we saw the need for decentralization in digital marketing to help fuel e-commerce, we knew there was a need for an all in one marketing platform to make it easier for companies/projects or people to spread their word. Question: Why do you think investing in Crypto is profitable? BitcoinGenX: Because it is largely unknown and highly volatile. Soon we will see stability in the market but then mass adoption will make sure the value will continue to go up for the strong projects. Question: What makes it stand out from the other ICO’s? BitcoinGenX: Our digital marketing platforms that are being built on decentralization, our clients can integrate into their business model and leverage the powerful network effect of the blockchain. This allows companies to build their own unique economic ecosystems and incentivized early community contribution and adoption in an unparalleled fashion. Question: What suggestions would you like to share for others who are looking forward to starting a company? BitcoinGenX: Follow your dreams and passions, no one else is going to have the same as you! Question: How can World readers get involved in what you are doing? BitcoinGenX: If you would like to know more about how you can take part in the community, please check our discord forums and let us get to know you and your skill set. We’re open for extending our team with great personalities. Question: What are the next steps in the project? BitcoinGenX: We are working hard on the web wallet development, so it can be released as soon as possible. Also, we are planning to get listed on CoinMarketCap and masternodes.online. CONCLUSION BitcoinGenX (BGX) is creating a hub (all-in-one) digital marketing platform whereby large corporations, small businesses, and people alike can all bring about big savings and promote their products or services with the easy marketing process. BitcoinGenX has a fast blockchain and the wallet including green protocol and zerocoin protocol is safe and secure.
