Crypto currency, a sure way to lose or make money

Crypto currency, a sure way to lose or make money? With a bit of help this would be the fastest way to make a difference to your life

Is Crypto currency trading or gambling?

Hesitancy cost me half a million dollars a hard lesson in any ones life.
A couple of years back I looked at the whole Crypto thing and like nearly everyone else thought that Bitcoin was Overvalued at $3200 and Etherium was a massive $100

I read all the reports and listened to the so called experts instead of using my head.

Crypto Coins and Alt coins are a technology that will change our lives. Like Google or Facebook and even Amazon they have arrived and stayed to dominate the worlds market.
Broadband Internet, Google maps, smart phones and now 5G Mobile networks are changing our world and the crypto market is no different. It is a game changer.

All of the above have seen considerable growth over just a few short years which means that they are a growing asset and something to be considered.

How do they make money and hold their value

We all wondered at Google the free search engine that could not make a dime. At Amazon that sold books, eBay that traded trash, Microsoft that wrote software, Apple that bought smart phones forward and the new kid on the block Tesla and EV technology.
It is funny that these are the top value stocks on the American market.
They bought change and a different future.

Netflix creators went to Blockbuster and tried to sell them on the idea of instant internet entertainment. The smart guys at Blockbuster Laughed at them and sent them packing but who is laughing now.

We are all hesitant at accepting change and The Crypto market is change.

Bitcoin is a value based product for investment activity. It is like virtual Gold or US hard currency (Fiat) except that it is different . Dollar notes depreciate, gold goes where the dollar goes and Black Gold (OIL) is a product of the past.

Smart Contracts that pass between users cut out the middle bogey men ( think Banks) with secure and fast transactions that cost very little.

All sorts of products will pass through smart contracts, Real Estate, Stock, Insurance, Medical records eliminating the need for the middle man.

It is not an if it will happen any more, it is real and it is our future .

Is there a better Bitcoin

Crypto currencies
Bitcoin is really virtual

First in is always best dressed so it will be very difficult to take the mantle from Bitcoin.
They ( whoever they are ) invented the Block Chain Technology that is driving our future.

People stayed away in their droves as the market went like a roller coaster from a few dollars to $60,000 at its peak.
Things are different. Bit Coin is now predominantly held by institutions who are in it for the long haul. Slowly they have changed there thoughts on the future and have seen the future.

The great Warren Buffet said absolutely not to anything to do with this technology. He was scathing of the whole things for a long time before a little light bulb went on. He has now invested in companies that invest in the crypto market.

Will it go higher?

There is a limited supply of Coin therefore demand will grow with supply thus taking the coin to new heights unfathomable at this time. Will it be $100,000 or a $500,000 coin right through to The magic million dollar return.

Most experts that ignore FUD and rely on figures will tell you at least Five hundred thousand in the next two years.

This is not investment advice, the market could do anything at any time however the pessimist in my sees a bright future.

Crypto currency and what to choose

If Bitcoin is so good are there others

With well over a thousand choices on the market there is ample opportunity to pick winners.

They may well be random like Dodge Coin however even that coin has a following.

Number Two in Line is Etherium a smart contracts option that follows in the shadow of Bitcoin Currently valued at about 7% of Bitcoin price. Therefor a Half a million dollar Bitcoin would see Etherium at $35,000 a long way from the current $3000

Then you have Solana , Cardano and a whole host of supporting infrastructures.

Staying in the top 20 coins will offer some investment security however a spread of a few always helps.

The market is volatile. It will be a roller coaster ride so set a reasonable time for your investment to mature. Yes you can Day trade to pick up quick coin however take a bit of training first.

The option market is for the experts so let's not go there.

Other assets that compare with Bitcoin

The Stock Exchange is the closest comparison to the Crypto Market. In fact many listed companies invest in Crypto as there trading objective. In general the stock market rises year on year as good if not better than any other investment.

Gold Silver and commodities have always been a hedge against inflation however they generally keep pretty well in tandem to inflation.

Fiat currency is what we term dollar notes in any country. Particularly when it is not pegged to a Gold standard. The buying power of a dollar will depreciate as the world appreciates. That is to say in Ten years time the almighty dollar may have buying power of just $ 0.50. Is that a good investment.

Real Estate generally represents long term value particularly when you live in it. Housing goes up with inflation however it can crash at any given time. It rises and falls on demand generated by governments. In fact my last House decreased in value over a ten year period and that did not allow for adjustment in the value of the dollar. A poor investment.

Crypto currency is more than just a trend

crypto currencies and change
To mars and back

This was the case in years past however times have changed, Companies like Amazon, Google, You tube have had extremely steep uptakes and the latest is Tesla that reached the market in a few short years.

The Crypto market is a product of change. Just about any transaction done will have some link to the blockchain technology. It is currently in its infancy that has years of growth ahead.

You could have been a Millionaire buying Amazon shares. or Google or many other however we all missed the boat by not recognising technology of change.

Where would we be without Google maps, the Internet PayPal, Uber taxis, Netflix to name a few that have made the world entirely a different place.

Crypto currency is the new trend

Chasing the big growth companies for great profits

There will be growth companies that will storm the market with an incredible increase in value generating instant Millionaires. Therefore recognising them early is necessary. Buying at a few dollars and selling at thousands is dream time for most of us. I missed the initial growth I am not going that way again, the market has a long term future.

Just think a Fifty Thousand Investment today could be worth a half a million in two years time.
Where else can you achieve this potential.

It is reasonable sure that the top ten coins will see a bright future and the others require a knowledge of the market or inside information to pick the Rockets.

One telling parameter is market capitalisation. Bitcoin may have a Trillion dollar cap so any coin that you can multiply price by supply needs to be well under this figure.

This is easy to work out by a simple search on Google.

The Stock Market is no different, shares are valued by the return they can generate to the shareholders over time.

Has the Crypto horse already bolted

As I have said it is still early days before the technology of change will increase the market.

There are still a few Bogey men hanging around making noises to scare of the punters.
The Chinese Government, The US feds, Big Banks, running costs, Calamity for-casts are just a few of these hiding in the dark.

It is certain that China will eventually have their own Coin to compete in the market. This will increase competition not decrease value.

Some Government intervention will be welcomed to rid the market of shoddy operators .

The costs of Bitcoin mining came to the fore when Elon Must demanded they must use better technologies that waste of Power and Water. China joined the throng by banning Mining in their country thus forcing immigration of the businesses.

The miners found renewable recourses to run the massive computer farms required in mining and reduced this concern to a past history.

Finally we can never see what something like Covid_19 can do to a world market. There may be other events that can create the same havoc in the future and disrupting a market.

Crypto currency investing

How to invest in the market

First of all you may need more than one broker account. Each Broking house only carries certain coins so you may need to open several. I use eToro as my main account and FTX for Cardano and Coinbase for others. Binanc is one among many. that have some of the lessor known coins.
Select with care and only choose reputable brokers that come with high recommendations.

Be Very careful of your currency and keep it under lock and Key, In fact invest in a Yubikey to stop all fraudulent activity.

My summary and conclusion

Disruptive technology is changing our world and will continue to do so at a faster and faster rate in our lifetime.
We will see fossil Fuels disappear, a Global Satellite Broadband internet service, 5G Mobile technology that is a one hundred times faster than what we have now.
The race to Space is bringing new dimensions in technology that were thought bubbles a couple of years back.
The humble petrol engine will disappear and transport will be run by green fuels that have little or no contamination to our environment,
World economies will change to Global currencies away from local Fiat to contain deflation
and allow the ease of currency transmitting.

Being in early has been proven time and time again to be the money maker. It may not be quick however it will be positive.

Be disruptive and join the band.

What can we do to stop Global Warming

The battery decade

What can we do to stop Global Warming as a single individual. You have the power to make great change possible and here's how

What can we do to stop Global Warming

Provide awareness to others

The ignorance on this subject is often alarming driven by media that want us to disown the idea.
The fossil Fuel Industry are using every endeavour to cloud the very waters of belief in marketing that follows the Tobacco Industry war on smoking.

You can be a great Greta Thunberg by simply spreading the word and driving it up to decision makers in your own small way.

I was not a believer but then the light came through

Like many of you I believed in cyclical seasons, some good and some not so good and that was just the way it was.
In fact, I really think that I just did not want to believe because it was just to hard to understand that we need change.
I live in Western Australia with a low population. wide open spaces and no real manufacturing. How could I see change in action.

I had a brief involvement in the sola industry and my eyes were opened to what could be done.
Furthermore I also live among some of the largest mining operations in the world , including Coal and coal fired power stations so I understand the revenue generation of mining.

Then Greta Thunberg popped her head out of the clouds. Most around me saw just a silly little girl that new nothing about Global Warming. However, I was captivated by a symbol of change.

This brave little Girl did a lone vigil against the odds that turned into millions rallying around the world in a relatively short time. School children the world over joined the movement and had a voice that was heard by adults that were prepared to ignore the truth.

Greta did not want to be a symbol however she single handed created a movement that would not be stopped.

Change had begun

Low and middle-income nations received nearly $16bn a year between 2017 and 2019 to fund projects related to gas, a fossil fuel that worsens global heating. This was nearly four times more than international public finance for wind or solar projects.”

The Guardian May 2021

What can we do to stop Global Warming

This movement was not about fame or fortune it was about belief and change.

My next figure of change that did it for good

We may get a bit of disagreement on this one however the results will be the same.

Elon Musk wanted to electrify the automotive world to bring about his own level of social conscience. Remember that it started with house hold Solar Panels and the need for battery support that would lesson the need for Fossil generated power.

Joining the Tesla movement was based on change. This went against the beliefs of 99.9% of people that believed it was an impossible dream. Electric cars would never happen.
The change was to eliminate dangerous exhaust gases pumped from billions of vehicles every minute of the day.
Elon shouted pollution at every opportunity.
Yes I know he got rich out of the car factory however it was at a great cost and risk that few would take.
Now some 12 years after the first Tesla was put on the road they are aiming for over a million cars a year in world wide distribution.

More importantly nearly every car manufacturer in the world has followed suit and people like Volvo, VW and others are aiming for 100% electric supply between 2015 and 2020

What can we do to stop Global Warming and change

Change in a grand scale

This is change on a grand scale started by one individual for what ever the motive you wish to apply. Mine is for global Good a goal that is being accomplished every day.

Locally We have a Entrepreneur called Andrew Forrest, Andrew made and makes money from Iron ore. In fact earns about a billion a year.
His latest gamble is in Green Hydrogen. This is a fuel from Oxygen and electricity that can power many things. His dream is a steel plant without pollution.
Andrew is not the only one working with Green Hydrogen however he is taking it to a new extreme.

In the US Truck maker Nicola is producing heavy haulage based around Hydrogen power.
The name Nicola is a play on Tesla however both are now fighting for the Semi market using zero emission power. This will make a huge difference to the Transport industry.

What can we do to stop Global Warming and government intervention

The list is extensive but many governments are ignoring the facts

In part governments are controlled by the Fossil industry. It is such a massive industry that they can pay to be listened to.

Furthermore my own Government in Australia is blind to the facts. They keep authorising Coal mines, ignoring the Electric car revolution and not making sufficient plans to reduce carbon emission.

The US and UK have a similar issue although Biden may be thinking more wisely than his previous counterpart.

Many countries in Europe subsidise electric vehicles and penalise the polluting petrol engines.

Even China has taken a strong position and has both a Tesla factory and their own car by Nio.

The revolution has started it just needs energy

I am writing this blog because I care. As individual it is hard to make a difference however getting people on board is a small answer to help spread the message.

It is a fact that 19 of the past 20 years have been warmer than any other period.

Back in 1980 people pressure demanded a change to the use of chlorofluorocarbons because of the damage to the ozone layer. The CFC manufactures denied liability and claimed there was no substitute for refrigerant gasses. The lied. However a law was not passed until 1987
when a substitute product miraculously materialised and CFC's were banned.

Fossil Fuel is causing damage to the world Atmosphere, the Ocean, waterways and public health. It is time to demand change

Who are the major contributors to Green house gas

What can we do to stop Global Warming with your participation

But what can we do

Here is a small list of ideas that will make a difference. How many is your government doing

Gather electricity from Solar, wind, Hydro or even Nuclear.
Battery and Hydrogen powered vehicles
Intensive farming.
Planting trees and stopping the removal of forests
Green Hydrogen manufacturing. ( Grey Hydrogen is produced from fossil fuels)
Greater building standard to smart constructions

Crypto currencies have been blamed for excessive use of Electricity with mining the currency. Change has come where miners are now working with renewable energy so that the industry is not tainted with blame. This industry is an example of a massive shift in moving away from past ideas and moving to the future. Blockchain technology is a revolution that is happening as we speak. Finance , Insurance, banking and any where documented proof is needed is achieved instantly and with a much lower cost.

Covid-19 has made a change. With lockdowns and working from home with much less travel has seen results the world over. Much less smog and lethal emissions have been experienced the world over.

We want to maintain a life style

Over time our general well being has improved and that should not change. Transport including planes must continue however perhaps we can do the better.
The old ways can change. Our history of trying to destroy the environment can stop and everyone can do their bit to contribute.

However we need to shake a lot of people out of lethargy and take action as a group.

We are managing the plastic war, the Tobacco industry, recycling and now the Fossil Fuel energy, power is in on our side
I was just listening to Elon Musk talking about Fossil fuels and he was saying it is a finite resource, one day it will run out so why not change before day zero. Accelerate the world to renewables.

Gross ignorance off the science is evident at every level.

A great read is “Dr Karl's little book of climate change science” available from Amazon and others. It's only about $9 and good for kids and adults alike. It lays out the facts.


I wrote this in the hope of moving someone to change. Most will simply shrug the shoulders and say so so what! Some will take the challenge and try for a difference.

I have not gone into the science because others are better at it than me however I am alarmed. The atmosphere, the oceans and the population are at peril. Not today, maybe not tomorrow however our children and grandchildren will be the recipients of change and not for good.

Lets all be a Greta Thumberg and spread the word

We have a duty to change.
Success is our responsibility

Best crypto trading platform and making a million

Will you become the next millionaire

Off course you will if you pick the right stocks and play with enough money and miss all the market recessions and Use a whole heap of dumb luck.

It is a high risk venture and any crypto or stock could crash and burn. However it could be said that Bit Coin, Etherium, Cardano have a very big future as safe investments. Therefore there are parts of the market that are more secure than other parts.

Although some of the Alt coins ( other than Bit Coin) offer a glimpse into the future.

The Bit Coin was built on the Block Chain technology a new way to transfer data securely so that it could not be hacked. Data includes Cash and valuables etc.

Block Chain has been redone by Etherium and Internet Computer. These do the same things in different ways and are opportunities on their own.

The market is a must be place and a small wager may go a long way.

There is no doubt that the past has been filled with negative press with many spreading fear, uncertainty and doubt. I was affected by that when I started my Crypto journey but two years back. I studied Block Chain and Bit coin and considered an investment. Bit coin were about $2500 and Etherium under $200 however I considered they could go no higher.
I withheld my $1000 investment and kept it in the bank. This was a $500,000 mistake that I made.
The market is still early stages and opportunities still exist. Bit Coin is flagged to reach $500k a coin or even a Million dollars in the extreme. This will take time and patience however an upside is the prediction by the vast majority of those in the know.

Institutional investors are coming to the market along with international banks and it is only time before the Super funds start to play along.
(This is not investment advice it is just a view that I have taken, Crypto comes with risk)

Therefore The crypto market will be as common as any of the great new ventures like Google, Facebook, Amazon etc that were all risky plays from day one.

Your folding money deflates particularly so with minimal interest. A hundred dollars in ten years will buy about half what it will today and in twenty years half that again.

Bit Coin should continue to grow and in ten years buy five or maybe even a hundred times what it will today. Therefore the choice seems obvious.

Balance your investments but don't miss out

There are many ways that you will be advised to invest however the basic way is to cover all bases.

  • Take a third in Real Estate
  • Keep a third in liquid funds
  • Trade with the balance

I bought a Property some years back and listed it on the market for $3.2 million as recommended by the Real Estate Values.
This was back in 2016 and within a month the market got smashed. I ended up selling for under two million a massive loss on a highly geared property.
The stock market crashed and money was lost in every way.

We can not predict the future so never have all the eggs in one basket.

Best crypto trading platform and a way forward

My sure fire way to success

Take a sum of savings every month and invest in high value Crypto Currencies. Perhaps a copy portfolio or a low risk bundle on a regular basis. Doing this may give you the opportunity over time to be the next crypto millionaire. You risk is a small sum built up over time that will not break you or render you homeless. It might however make you quite well off financially.

eToro is a perfect starting application.

Tesla-When a company has it all and for the right reasons

Tesla-When a company has it all. I am an unashamed follower of Elon Musk and the Tesla group. Now I make money from my obsession and tell why

Tesla is much more than a car company

You may either like or dislike Elon Musk however look behind the façade and there is a massive story to be told.

The Tesla story goes beyond that of Steve jobs for outstanding innovation and his achievements will be the greatest adventurer in history

Tesla vehicles started as an idea to change the world. The business was already operational when he introduced a small amount of seed capital to help the floundering operation.
He soon found out that direction and planning were needed to move forward so he joined as an active participant.

This small amount of involvement turned into an obsession and 20 hour days trying to avoid bankruptcy. Electric Vehicles were indeed untrendy and the perception was down played in every press and article.

Electric cars were just play things that would fade out and be like steam engines over night.

How wrong were they.

Paypal; the beginning

Elon first major business entry was PayPal where he bought into an established operation. It was extremely effective as we all know and he sold early for a hefty $200 odd million profit.

This provided the capital for his venture into Tesla where he made the hasty decision that risking half his money was worth the effort.
Tesla ended up taking it all and more as they worked the development stage of growth.

When you get close to the wall of no return you must take action

When the inevitable is the next pay day that you can't fund you are in deep trouble.
This is a situation that Musk found himself in during the early days however he took action.

First of all he went to a close friend Larry page and lined up a sale of shares in Tesla at a fire sale price. this was not not something he wanted however insolvency concerns pushed the issue.

Next was a very different approach to a problem.

Musk pulled every available employee to the phone and asked them to call anyone that would buy a car. By the end of the day they had sold enough new cars to cover any shortfall and this avoided off loading the shares . It was engineers, designers in fact anyone that could make a call fronted up to save the company.

Whilst Musk is sometimes portrayed as a difficult man to work for he does have a real employee loyalty.

Elon attracts a hate following

The press love to knock him and ridicule his ideas in a Tall Poppy fashion. In fact just today I read a review showing all the Gaffs he had made that were designed to the ridiculous.

In fact he has demonstrated a higher understanding of business and the environment than any peer before or after him.

An Electric Car (EV) was a pipe dream that could not be done. There were so many hurdles to overcome that it was considered it would never eventuate.
Batteries were a problem, recharging not available, facilities to build a viable number of cars too expensive, they were unsafe, impracticable and no one would ever buy them. That was in 2008.

In 2009 they sold just 500 cars to start the journey. Now in 2021 it will be close to a million cars in the year, an outstanding effort.

Elon has a different approach to most people. First of all he wants things done quicker than realistically possible. Secondly he wants it at half the price considered reasonable and finally he does not take no as an answer.
He also works absurdly long hours and wants everyone to be the same as him.
Some can take it many can't.

What makes Tesla special

The electric car is built around helping to control global Warming because of low or no exhaust emissions. The use of vehicles world wide was soaring with new demand coming from growing countries like China with their increased prosperity. Furthermore road traffic is responsible for nearly 18% of global emissions creating green house gases and damaging the world.

Musk set out to change the way transport is conducted.

Importantly Elon welcomed competition. In fact nearly all there systems are on open source software that can be used by anyone.

The Tesla model has been a different approach to orthodox car building.

He started out with a big and expensive car that had only minor market appeal. They set about showcasing a very fast and safe Automobile that was completely different to the general market. Only now after four model changes is he starting to develop a low cost alternative.

Models have been the S, the E, a three and finally a Y. This was supposed to spell sexy however the e was a Toyota brand and they had protected the word and denied Tesla the opportunity to use it.

Among many problems batteries was supreme

The limitations of battery packs included many variables;

  • Charging and recharging time
  • Use time
  • Heat loading
  • Fire risk
  • Weight
  • Packing

The battle was hard and in pact Panasonic were bought into the partnership to turn virtual computer batteries into a power system strong enough to power a large automobile.

Late last year Tesla launched a new product.

These new tabless cells, which Tesla is calling 4860 cells, will give the company's EV batteries five times more energy capacity, make them six times more powerful, and enable a 16 percent range increase for Tesla's vehicles. The tabless cells were among the first announcements from Tesla's Battery Day

The Verge Sept-20

The growth market

As we shall see battery growth is not just confined to Electric Vehicles because the solar industry is all growing at a great rate. Solar cell roofs or panels all need battery support and the market is arguably bigger than the car market.

It should be noted that this is a world wide market and not just domestic supply. Tesla has taken on the Chinese by building a local factory and supplying the biggest market in the world. The Chinese manufactured NIO is a light year behind and the introduction of a Tesla compact will see a big difference.

Finding increased opportunities for power

Elon's brother had been financed into a Solar energy project manufacturing panels and providing support batteries for domestic use. Elon joined into the group and used similar battery configurations to the cars and thus expanding on the demand for the product.

In the coming five years the supply of batteries alone will add significantly to the income of Tesla. Special factories have been set up and demand is going through the roof.

Tesla plan on delivering 20 million cars a year by 2030 up from a low One million this year

The ramp up plan from its pilot lithium-ion battery plant in California, with its 10 GWh annual capacity, includes an order of magnitude leap for Tesla to 100 GWh by 2022 before ballooning to 3 TWh by 2030

The cost of producing a Kwh of power is somewhere around $100 and expected to reach a figure nearer $50 by 2025. So when you multiply 3TW hours by $50 the income of Tesla is going to be very large.

Changing the world from the ground up

Every car company in the world is moving to EV

From a one man start up to a world changing position on vehicles.

European sales of EV's in 2021 will be in excess of 1.5 million cars, US nearly 8 % of all cars will be EV in 2021 (around 1.5 million cars) with similar amounts in China where it is estimated 30% of all cars will be EV in 2025.

Surprisingly The rise Of Hybrid cars is also growing mainly with the Toyota brand. When Tesla were asked if they would do a Hybrid the answer was a definite NO. The reason being that a full EV had far less moving parts and a Hybrid still has an engine Gear box Diff etc making the change less effective.

Another telling fact is that the European group levee a surcharge on all normal aspirated motors in the form of a tax. Therefore car manufacturers are pushing EV's where they can get a credit.
The tax can amount to hundreds of dollars on the price of a car.

Tesla are about to introduce, a ute, a truck and driverless taxis to markets this year that will bring a big increase to sales.

The Hydrogen impact on Batteries

Again Tesla stated that Hydrogen was not an option being to expensive and unstable to be considered. However many others are walking this plank because of increased power. It may be used in heavy haulage where savings can be made with increased payloads to compensate for cost

Green Hydrogen is the buzz of the year and considerable development is happening around this. This is made from water and Electricity so it requires a lot more energy in creating the fuel.

The race is not yet over but EV is a lap ahead

Elon Musk and the Tesla group have changed the future. A change that will be far better for the environment and for mankind. The losers are the Oil companies that have fought hard to maintain their lucrative market but have reluctantly accepted transformation.

It is an interesting fact that Electric cars consume electricity that mainly comes from fossil fuels, something that must be solved. However a concentrated problem is far easier to maintain than millions of emitters without control.

20 million cars a year

Tesla has plans to produce 20 million EVs per year by 2030, 50 times its 2019 production. Much of these projections are based on the inclusion of a $25,000 EV “within the next three years” – as announced at the recent ‘Battery Day’. There are already several EVs at that price range, but none with sufficient utility for owners (a combination of cost, range, access to charging etc.) to be truly head-and-shoulders better than an average priced ICEV. Adding a lower-priced vehicle to its portfolio would position Tesla to capture 45% of our projected 45 million passenger EVs sold in 2030.

What can you do about this

Tesla shares are going to go ballistic in the coming years, analyst's are picking a share price of ten or twenty thousand from the current $700 level. This is not investment advice nor do I understand the future however I do believe in what has been achieved in this start up period.

I have not mentioned SpaceX or the Low earth satellites that will beam fast internet to areas that previously had no chance. Nor the Boring company building tunnels at low cost and quicker than ever before.

The future has changed and you can change with it by buying a small investment into a huge growth cycle.
Simply set up an account with eToro and throw in some loose change to get a small part of the action. Off course there is risk involved and you should not put your inheritance across the table. However start the journey and become more educated on the opportunities coming up.

Buy Crypto Currency online ( and trade the market today). The new game in town is a place for everyone, you just need to be careful but how?

Has the Crypto market over heated and gone past us

The whole market is relatively new and most people just don't understand blockchain or coins creating fear and doubt.

If you are wanting to buy into the market you are evidently past this point and moved on to curiosity and excitement.

With massive investments by people like PayPal, Google, Tesla, Citibank, JP Morgan it is evident that the market has gained credibility.

Having a value in excess of US$2 trillion it is no small player although dominated by Bitcoin at about half that amount.

Most of the value is post 2017 so a relatively short time in any financial cycle.

The market is young and the future looms very large.

Is it safe to trade in online currencies

Many are finding this market is an ideal hedge against inflation however. Yes it is a rollie coaster ride with an upward trend over time.
This excludes the bottom tier entries that are there for padding.

Saying all that the market has been in a Bull Run for some time although forward projections see this strong trend going through to 2022.

I know nothing and this is not financial advise it is purely a discussion on a subject of interest.

You really need to have some skills in this to not get burnt.

One way to achieve this is by mirroring a player that has a history in the market.
Some brokers encourage this because you get to track your portfolio and see exactly what is happening along the way.
This is a form of protection and learning at the same time however results are never guaranteed.

Local area trading is available

What advise is available for new market players

First of all my advise is to learn as much as you can before investing any money.
Your broker ( my recommendation) will have a training program that you can play off market to see how you go.

You will quickly learn a few tricks and that life is not all roses.
Next is to follow a good investor for a time to see what could be if you have the talent and understanding.

Finally to employ a stop loss in all your positions to save failure in the case of a major shift in the market. It does happen and can bite very hard when it does.

Furthermore it may be wise to invest only in Bitcoin and Etherium who are the market leaders and will continue to be at the top for the long term. Time should take the wrinkles out of the market and provide a good return over a longish journey.

Crypto trading choices

I looked for someone that had a long trading history and an easy to follow page. They had to have the tools that I needed and the ability to control my world.

You will need to upload security documents like a Passport or Drivers Licence and completer a facial image recognition by taking an image in a snap of your self.

Then it will be banking details, drop some money and you are away and running.

You get to view the activity of all the selected stocks and drill down into all sorts of data analysis and graphs to gather really good information.

The activity is live and changing as you view the page and the above shot was a day after the April correction, the whole thing crashed for a short time. The low yesterday was $54431 a big dive from $66,000 just a few days ago.
You can see that the trend is upward at the moment however there may be another correction to come. I promised excitement .

Buy crypto currency online just like the big boys.

What do the big investors think?

One recent venture was by Elon Musk of Tesla fame. Elon had some spare capital earning little or no interest so he bought bit coin at at about $36,000 that sent the market up and then into a loss position.
Even at todays figure of $57,000 that is a great return on a US$1.5 billion investment.

Interestingly he is happy to take Bitcoin for the sale of a new Tesla, so come on market I need one.

The next is Greyscale Investment a New York base investment fund and an early entrant to bit coin.

Grayscale has by far the largest Bitcoin portfolio of any institutional investment platform, with over $30 billion in BTC currently under management in the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust, which trades under “GBTC”.


I could do many more but suffice to say there is some big investors that are going for the long ride. See more at Crypto markets

Can you monitor what is going on with the Crypto market

You sure can. There is so much data available that a rank amateur can keep up to date and have a chance of success using the data available.
This is a simple chart of Etherium over the past few months of a Bull market with a ending correction.

buying on the crypto market

Off course there will be good days and bad days and a few classic corrections along the way .

This is not a market for the feint hearted because it is an Investor driven result.

Furthermore it has a young following that are volatile in their activity seeking quick profits.

Are all Crypto currencies safe?

There is the amazing story of Dodge Coins. This was set up as a joke by a couple of smart programmers and left to languish and find its own way.

Buy Crypto currency on line

Today Dodgecoin is worth $0.34 following a year that went from as low as $0.03 to a high of $0.56 on reasonable trading. It is a Joke coin with nothing behind it however that is the market.
Many hold it as a fun token reminding them selves the real value of the currencies.

Conclusion on trading

First of all and as required to say, nothing in this represents trading or investing advise.

However it is a fun place to be where you can hang out with a few dollars and try your skills.
Never risk the family Jewels on any trading at any time because the downsides can be pretty big.
Finally it is also a very emotional journey just like being at the casino so remember to take your profits and limit your losses along the way

What is the value of a Bitcoin

Crypto currency trading ( Can the average person make money)

Crypto currency trading ( Can you average person make money)

Crypto currency trading If you are not a part of this you are losing out. However be warned that it is very addictive and exciting

Is Crypto currency just a big scam

The answer to this is, no it is not, and it is very much a part of our future.

Furthermore if you think you are too late then think again, the game is just the beginning of a long road ahead.

When I started my Crypto journey a couple of years back (2019) I considered Bitcoin overvalued at $4000 and Etherium a bit expensive at $190 so I took a sit and watch position.

My oh my was I wrong. I should be retired now however the day is but young.

When doing my research for this article I still read supposedly intelligent people doubting the future. There is so much misinformation on the whole Crypto world that I am staggered that anyone can get good information to act on.

Therefore let me try and clear up a few things for you in simple English that anyone can understand

What has Blockchain got to do with it

This is where it all started. Way back in the dark ages of 1991 when a fictional character developed a new way of transacting documents and cash.

Blockchain has the potential to grow to be a bedrock of the worldwide record-keeping systems, but was launched just 10 years ago. It was created by the unknown persons behind the online cash currency bitcoin, under the pseudonym of Satoshi Nakamoto.


Blockchain can be used for the transaction of any documents or money in a very secure way. Examples could be Real Estate settlements, legal documents, shipping ledgers etc.
Security is primary however instant transactions also became very popular.

Bitcoin jumped on this idea of using the Blockchain to establish a secure platform for cash
transactions and now over 5000 other companies have done the same thing.

Therefore Bitcoin and most of the others simply use Blockchain as a transaction vehicle..

Blockchain provides a level of trust in transactions not before seen.

Then they rattle on about Mining currency

If you want to go mining then read no further. It is for those wanting to play a game and hope to earn currency along the way.
You need special software, lots of computer power and a nerd based outlook on computer programming.

The alternative is to buy currencies on the market, a whole lot easier for us simple folk.

So what do I buy when I pay for a currency

First of all you buy coins or tokens depending on the offer. Coins can be more generally spent than tokens that are like casino chips and only spent in certain businesses.
These are generally backed by some cash however the value of a coin is really based on perception of value.
Therefore trading in Crypto currencies can be volatile. Some big gains and some losses will pave the way.

Show me the value in Cryptos and what does the future hold

Today ( April -21) saw the launch of a brand new currency, it was floated on the stock exchange without a value posted.
Coinbase had an estimated value of about us$250 but hit the market at US$381 before falling slightly to US$328. The first target that they hope to achieve, some say, is the us$1000 figure.
This is important because it really reflects the value placed on the market.

Yes it blew many away and the doubters stayed home and the buyers went big.
They claim 56 million users in 100 countries and assets over223 billion.
Revenues are over a billion a year and income soaring so it has a long way to go.

Next is Billionaire Elon Musk who through a lazy 1.5 billion dollars into bitcoin. He sees the future from the inside

Elon Musk's car firm Tesla has said it bought about $1.5bn (£1.1bn) of the cryptocurrency Bitcoin in January and expects to start accepting it as payment in future.

The news caused the price of Bitcoin to jump 17% to $44,220, a record high.

Tesla said it was trying to maximise returns on cash that is not being used in day-to-day running of the company.
BBC News

PS todays price is $66,000 a handy profit

There are many others that see future potential not just a day to day ride

How do you get Cryptos when you don't have a spare $66,000 to buy a single bitcoin

This is easy because you just buy a small part of a currency and use that as a value for purchasing. Consider a One Hundred dollar note in one cent pieces.
Using a broker is easy. You must follow really strict identification rules however when you are up and going it is really just Day Trading, buy and sell as you wish.

Is the Crypto market safe to invest in

Hell no, not for serious investors saving for retirement. The normal stock market is built on fundamentals that are easy to follow. You can readily gather a heap of knowledge about any stock and make an informed decision. Many of the top stocks are backed by large funds that are transparent in what they do.

The crypto market is more about understanding herd mentality. The millions of small investors can manipulate a market and change the pricing fundamentals overnight.
Therefore it is more akin to gambling than investing and that is why it is so much fun.

The Crypto market is anticipating what people will do next.

However it does have a lot of other values as well. It can be used to buy products, transact negotiations , gather new business , back green energy or over 5000 other ways to market.

Imagine buying 1000 bit coins back in 2010 at $0.08 cents each or $80, Now worth around $66 million, that my friends is Crypto trading.

A bit of history from Wikipedia


  • Since it was first introduced to the world more than a decade ago, Bitcoin has had a choppy and volatile trading history.
  • Bitcoin's price has undergone multiple bubbles in a short history.
  • The factors influencing its price have changed with Bitcoin's evolution as an asset class.
  • The narrative surrounding Bitcoin has shifted from being a currency to a store of value as a hedge against inflation and uncertainty around the U.S. dollar's future purchasing power.

Crypto currency trading and the future

What Will Bitcoin Be Worth in 2030?

Predictions for the future value of bitcoin vary based on who makes the estimate. According to Jeremy Liew, a partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners, Bitcoin could reach $500,000 per coin in 2030. According to the June 2020 Crypto Research Report, the cryptocurrency could go over $397,000 by 2030

When people forecast a result they are simply guessing the future

Times are changing as Crypto goes mainstream

Traditionally the market for products was around a product and a following with little regulation.


  • Entrepreneurs looking to launch a new cryptocurrency can do it through an initial coin offering (ICO), a variation on an initial public offering (IPO).
  • There is little to no government regulation of ICOs currently, and anyone can launch one, provided they get the technology put in place.
  • How? Create a white paper or other document outlining the system, make a website or app describing how it works, and seek funding.
  • Advertising is key since there are so many competing coins on the market, so figuring out how to appeal to the target demo is crucial.
  • Not looking to launch a new coin, but rather, to invest in a new coin? Make sure to do thorough research, as there are a number of scams.

This all changed on the 14 April 2021 when the latest product Coinbase Global Inc (Coin) was launched as a public offering on the New York Stock Exchange.

This was bit different from a traditional launch in that the shares were issued on trading and developed a price of their own. Originally forecast to be about $250 a share they rose to near $400 on day one before settling back to $320. If you work on traditional share market valuations this does not stack up however the rules have changed. It will be interesting reading this six months from now. I am very bullish but that is my personal point based on nothing and is not a recommendation.

Crypto currency trading and protection

Use Stop Loss tools to manage your trading

Because the crypto market is extremely volatile investors can protect their investments against wild fluctuations.

Stop loss is a trading tool designed to limit the maximum loss of a trade by automatically liquidating assets once the market price reaches a specified value. There are multiple types of stop loss that can be used in different scenarios depending on the crypto market situation.

trade Santa

Basically you can set pricing values on your stock holding. If the market goes down and reaches your pre-set value your holding is automatically sold. The market is 24-7 so you can not be there to watch all the time.
The same can go for an increase, if the stock rises to a set point it will also automatically sell.
This control limits your investment from the king hits that volatility may bring.

Having a balance of currencies may also provide a further safeguard against loss. However the market does tend to emulate Bitcoin and Etherium in activity.

Crypto currency is used as a buying exchange

Many currencies like Bitcoin can be used to buy products from retail shops and markets.

Bitcoin can buy Food, Travel, jewelery, Games, coffee and just about any product on the market.

However the growth in purchasing has not been as popular as previously thought. The value is more about investing.

Crypto currency trading in Australia

In fact in Australia one organisation Qoin has gone all out to establish this relationship. Having a base of resellers that used a barter transaction system over several past decades the move to a coin was a natural growth. It was however difficult to move Barter tokens to cash where as Quin provides a limited ability to achieve this.
I am a recent Investor in Qoin because it targets customers in my market demographic

Crypto currency trading and the big boys

Are the major organisations involved in Bitcoin

One of the story's that change perception is that Of JP Morgan.

JPMorgan Chase & Co. is an American investment bank and financial services holding company headquartered in New York City. JPMorgan Chase is incorporated in Delaware. As a “Bulge Bracket” bank, it is a major provider of various investment banking and financial services. Wikipedia


In the early days of Online currency JP Morgan slammed the theory and debunked the whole idea of Block Chain. They were one of the harshest critics.

Now days the have there own currency and transact billion dollar deals through a Block Chain type deal. This was a classic 180 turn around.

So if JB did a turn around who else joined the game.

  • Amazon
  • Citibank
  • Facebook
  • Google
  • IBM
  • Intel
  • Mastercard
  • Samsung
  • Siemens
  • Visa
  • Walmart

The stable is pretty healthy however they may just be hedging their bets. so let's look at those that put the assets on the line.

Greyscale Bitcoin trustJust a louse $30 billion in Feb 21
Coinshare growth $3.2 billion
Ruffer Investment co (UK)$2 billion
Elon Musk at Tesla$1.5 billion

They are sizable investments in a market that can change 30% in a day however they do reflect trust in the product for long term gain.

It's now time to play now Trust has been established

Crypto currency trading and my reflection

trading Crypto currency

It is interesting that as I write this piece the market has had reasonable correction downward. In fact Bitcoin is trading at about US$55,000 quite a big fall from the recent $66,000.
However I am not panicking. This is not a sprint to the finish and provided you have value investments tomorrow will be another day.

Finally you certainly need your big-girl boy shoes because it is really dynamic on a continual basis.
However investments can be in the hundreds as you learn the game and improve your skills.

No better time than now.

Crypto currency trading ( Can you average person make money)

How Crypto currency can really work for your business. It is here and it is now and can double your trading in three great ways.

You missed the boat but can now make up ground an easy way

The ship has not sailed away, in fact, it is well and truly afloat as some smart people are taking advantage of the huge opportunity.

A single Bitcoin today is trading at about A$78,000. Now that is a heap of money however many are predicting over A$600,000 in the next couple of years.

There are now over 5000 Crypto currencies available on the market used to buy product, sell product or as an Investment for long term gain ( or loss).

Many Crypto currencies target a specific market and some of them include:

  • Buying online games
  • Gambling in many forms
  • Transacting international funds
  • Shopping
  • Buying property

They are really like virtual money that exists in a wallet and can be used at any time.

Why would a business be involved with a Crypto Currency

You are reading this because you have an interest.

As a business owner I use A virtual currency to gain new business. This is business I would never come across in my normal marketing and it is a very cheap entry to a large group of buyers. In fact many thousands of interested parties wanting to spend Qoin with someone.

It creates its only little world of customers. Qoin developed from the customer acquisition site Barter Card. Here we had Barter dollars that were really in house and very hard to exchange for cash. After a decade of Barter Qoin was a welcome addition.
Creating a Crypto currency using the same interest groups and buyers / sellers was a great step forward.

Next is the fact that QOIN is dynamic in value in that it establishes a trading value on market perception. Bitcoin for instance went from $0.10 to about $60,000 creating many billionaire.
Any coin can achieve this level however there are many variables that will create value or even blow the coin away. Not unlike share market stocks.

I have customers that prepay their accounts and traditionally that money was used as current cash flow. Now I invest in Qoin so over the prepayment period I have invested the money hoping for a gain in value. I can also draw down along the way to meet commitments.

Punters will invest in Qoin as their market reach goes to many new countries and it is seen purely as an investment model. They may become new customers as you target them offering value in what you sell for Cryptos.

How Crypto currency can really work for your business with Qoin

What is Qoin and how can it work for you

Qoin is an Australian Company who have recognised the need and value in introducing a Crypto currency targeted at small to medium business.

My only association is as a subscriber to the service to gather new business opportunities to my Messaging service based in Australia

Bitcoins' have a real advantage in value

Legal tender like dollar bills really depreciate in value over time as purchasing power declines. Once apon a time the banks would pay you interest and you may gain some value however the Tax man would rip it apart and take his 30% before you counted the value.
Now days interest is so low you may soon have to pay the bank to hold your money.
The one thing it did offer was security, it was difficult or impossible for a bank to go broke so your money was quite safe.

Crypto is held on investment for you and the value of that investment may grow or decline depending on perceived value. Example is Bitcoins.

How Crypto currency can really work for your business.

Does anyone use Crypto currency

it is a divided market that has several levels;

Investment VehicleThe opportunity for great Interest returns
High return v Low riskan open market
For selling productsIn your business or line of work
Naturally buying productSafe currency
Transferring moneyQuick and easy transactions
New business marketFind new customers

Today people are starting to use Bitcoin for payment, or should I say a very small percentage of a $60,000 coin.
In Australia one company is taking Bitcoin for NBN network payments. This is just a first step to the future.
Businesses are recognising that the new currencies have a value that other avenues wont supply.

For the small to medium business owner

First of all the bit coin market is like the stock exchange, it goes where it wants and that may be up or down. As an investor that provides an opportunity to look at risk and make some decisions

  • You may opt for a safe and steady growth
  • Maybe a little bit more of a risk to get more return
  • Speculative trading on new options

I am reinforcing that the whole venture comes with some risk and that you should be aware
of the total environment when starting out

Blockchain is used by Crypto currencies in many applications but not related

Block Chain is the horse before the cart.

It allowed an entirely new way of transacting currency exchange. Block Chain has had many knockers particularly from the financial service businesses that resist change. Moving funds became instant and secure a mile away from the old banking methods that have survived the years.

In many cases Blockchain technology stands behind the Crypto world supporting transactions in safety

One Australian start up offers a three way deal for business.

How Crypto currency can really work for your business.

Qoin was established in 2019 however it was not market ready for many months. Therefore you would be in the early investor group.

  • You can sell product
  • Buy product
  • Gain value along the way
  • ( there is always a risk of loss and that should be taken into account)
  • Invest spare funds for future gain

In 2019 when I started my Crypto watch portfolio my stock of choice was Etherium however the $137 price tag put me off. I was glad because it went down to $102 within a few months losing value.
Today April 2021 it is a$2890. You do the Maths on what I lost.

Many of my Barter customers now trade in Qoin so I am targeting future value and many more customers that will come on board.
Qoin is just one of the ways for you to future proof your growth.
Choose carefully and enjoy the journey.

This is not an attempt to sell you on a product

I wrote this blog to introduce you to a concept that may have value for you and your business.
Crypto currency is a multi Trillion dollar venture with thousands of opportunities of which some will be winners therefor others will be losers.
The Qoin program is a low cost entry that may work for you and produce a whole new world of marketing.
I am not an Affiliate of Qoin however I am a member purely as a business proposition. Therefore is say to enter this world with eyes wide open.

Online marketing is getting harder to manage unless you tackle the problem by fast tracking your solutions.

As marketers we need to innovate and continue to grow with the changes thrown at us. Furthermore you need to adapt to change and move with the times or struggle along with the crowd.

Virtual currencies are a change that many will ignore because of ignorance or even laziness in adapting to the times. You must stay with the market and continue to learn because the world is surely changing and you must come along for the ride.

My Crypto conclusion

First of all the revolution is here to stay. It is still early days and we will see so many changes in the coming years that will alter our life styles.

How quickly printed money has become redundant. In my country I carry no cash and do all transactions by card. ( or in my case on my wrist watch that holds my cards).

Cheques are a thing of the past. It annoys me That I have one client that pays by cheque every month. I is not worth my time to go to the bank for a small amount however change is coming.

Bank Investments are hurting those that rely on interest for a part of their income. They must now draw on assets to get through a day. This is particularly so in the older generation.

Regular mail is a sunset product as bills now come by email and are paid on line.

Home phones are being lost to mobile connections and Internet will soon be in the sky coming at super fast speed anywhere in the world.

Finally things are now moving so fast that we must keep up or be left lagging behind and missing opportunities for growth.
