Is Bitcoin An Incredible Investment Or Merely Fools Gold?

Is Bitcoin An Incredible Investment Or Merely Fools Gold?

Is Bitcoin an incredible investment or merely fools gold? Cryptocurrencies are all the rage right now with investors but they are not built on sound economic principles. Bitcoin made its debut on a major exchange on Dec. 10, a milestone for the digital currency that has some investors excited but others nervous.(KAREN BLEIER / AFP/GETTY IMAGES) Within a year, the price of Bitcoin in U.S. dollars went up 2,100 per cent, Litecoin (an improved version of Bitcoin) by 8,400 per cent, and Ether, the cryptocurrency that fuels the Ethereum Virtual Machine, by 8,700 per cent. Watching these price rises is nothing short of mesmerizing, and there is talk that this rise in prices will bring about the mass-market adoption of cryptocurrencies. Not so fast. Yes, these new technologies provide huge opportunities. But the dramatic price rises over the last weeks are likely caused by simple dynamics of a massive influx of fresh money seeking few coins. Although there are reports of people taking up mortgages to but cryptocurrencies (please dont!), its probably enough if many people spend some pocket change. Most platforms require no more than $100 (minus a 5 per cent fee), and with worldwide reach, if 100 million people buy just $100 worth of Bitcoin each, then theres $10 billion of fresh money rushing in. Of course prices would shoot up. What really concerns me about the current craziness is the role of the cryptocurrency exchange platforms, such as Coinbase, Quadriga, or Bitfinex, which most people use to buy Bitcoins. These are like banks that hold deposits. For cryptocurrencies to succeed it is critical that these interfaces with the real world are financially robust. Are they? Do they have all the Bitcoins they sell? Can they always satisfy depositors demands? Are they run-proof? C Continue reading >>

Someone live-tweeted Pitbull at the Toronto real estate expo Unsubscribe anytime or contact us for details. Why the heck are Pitbull and Sylvester Stallone speakingabout bitcoin in Toronto?

This years Real Estate Wealth Expo adds Bitcoin, Sylvester Stallone, and A-Rod.

After explaining to us the economies of scale in selling cocaine, Pitbull tells us that we will always have obstacles in life and business. More than 1,100 people have now upvoted a Reddit post linking to his thread from the Pitbull and Stallone speeches, calling it everything from "the funniest s--t I read all year" to "more amazing than I could have possibly imagined."
