Will Bitcoin Price Keep Falling? Why I Remain Confident ...

I’m 23 y/o, make $80k, live in the Bay Area and work in Sales

Hi all! Apologies in advance for any formatting problems and that this is submitted a bit late-- it’s been a hectic morning in the office.
Section 1: Assets & Debts
401k: on track to max it out for my second year-- fluctuates but around $25k
Checkings account: I maintain about 20k in my checkings account. I have about $500 in cryptocurrency (Bitcoin and Ethereum) that I’m just going to leave in there.
Savings account: I don’t have a savings account and my rationale is that I prefer to stay liquid at the moment. I think there’s always been a deep financial insecurity instilled within me and this cushion is pretty extra but makes me feel safe.
Credit card debt: N/A, I always try and pay my cards off asap
Student loan debt: N/A, I was able to get a few scholarships in college and used a lot of my internship money towards housing. I’ve also been lucky enough for my parents to help cover a majority of my expenses. They’re really great.
Section 2: Income
Monthly take home Income: 3,741.62/month
Section 3: Expenses
Rent: 1340 (split with two other roommates)
Utilities: typically ~60
Wifi: typically ~25 (I don’t know why it’s fluctuating but I guess I’m not really counting dollars over here on something I use excessively. My roommate handles this while I pay utilities)
Retirememt: I max out my 401k, so $18,500 annually.
Cell phone: I'm on my parents' family plan
Health insurance: I'm on my parents' plan. Work offers free health insurance, but it’s easier to reach the family deductible minimum this way.
Therapy: $190 This is two sessions per month. This is pretty helpful, but I may consider looking for someone in our network so I don’t have to be paying purely out of pocket.
Gym: 29.99
Netflix: 0 I am the mooch, but tbh I don’t use it often.
Domain hosting: 6
Groupon Select: 4.99 I’ve been recently into flotation therapy and buying the Select gives me an additional 20% off on everything and ended up saving me more money. I love Groupon and will also occasionally impulse purchase shit there, so having this flat discount all the time has been totally worth it to me.
Savings: It’s all in the checkings account, but essentially everything I don’t spend I consider my savings. I also maintain a monthly “everything else goes” budget of $750/month. Sometimes I’m a bit over budget, sometimes I’m a bit under. It generally balances out and keeps me in check.
Monday
7:15 - My mornings take about 30 minutes to get ready. My routine consists of Elta MD sunscreen, Anastasia brow wiz, Makeup Forever eyeliner, Heroine Kiss mascara, and IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness concealer. (shoutout mua) I'm out the door and walk to the Caltrain station to take the 7:59 train to Mountain View. I have quite a long commute, but it's not that bad when I consider I can spend the time on the train to myself. It's a nice way to start the morning and sometimes I get some more time to sleep.
9:15 - At work! I work in Sales, so most of my job consists of writing emails, finding new contacts, and talking to clients. Before I went into sales, I would have never guessed that for most of the day the job itself is quiet-- just the sound of incessant typing.
12:30 - Work is great and feeds us. I pick up breakfast typically on my way in, and head down to grab lunch usually around this time.
X - I'm writing this entry in retrospect and don't recall much of my day at work. They're usually a blur. A couple of us are being promoted in title to the next step and at the moment it's a transitory time for us to build up our own book of business.
5:30 - I leave the office and commute back to the city.
7 - I'm home and cook some food. I pretty much just spend the evening reading and relaxing. Once in a while I'll get pretty intent on studying everything on a subject-- today it was about bdsm. I had been visiting this place with the guy I'm seeing (R) and I think after a couple trips, it makes sense for me to now to at least read up on the terminology and discussion on it. I spend most of the evening reading. I think this has been my biggest gripe coming out of school-- that my learning feels slower and I don't have as much depth into subjects as well as I did while in school. I miss it and I think these random evening binges help fill that gap.
X - I remember at some point that I bought a decorative plate for my kokedama plant (Japanese moss ball plants-- look them up!). I water it and put it on the plate. It looks super cute on the plate. I've reached my peak of interior design capabilities.
10 - I text R before bed. I think we're in a good place and I'm happy. I fall asleep around 11.

Tuesday
7 - I wake up feeling like a lot is happening. My roommate is moving out -- I'm refiguring out how to pay rent and get a new subletter onboard and also find time to have dinner with the girl heading back to Malaysia. I haven't done laundry in a while -- sheets, clothes. I'm out of the country on Saturday -- packing, getting other shit in order while I'm gone. The volunteering programs I'm in are kinda happening in the background. Work is picking up -- I'm moving into a new role. I am reconnecting with a ton of friends but also making a conscious effort to pace myself. I am trying to get into setting up my personal site for random art projects I've done in the past and set me up to put content out on the internet. I want to start organizing events. I shoot off a few texts to get this all rolling and feel better.
11: - The sales reps have a weird conversation with our manager. He's not transparent and can be weird on certain topics. We're all concerned that this isn't a 'real promotion', especially since salary hasn't been discussed at all.
12:30 - We have a lunch sync just trying to figure out the situation together and how to approach it.
5: - I leave work and pick up a fruit tart from the kitchen before heading out. Their fruit tarts are hands down my favorite desserts, so that made my day. It's tasty and I feel healthy.
5:30 - My best friend calls while I commute back home. We chat and hang.
6:30 - I stop by Safeway after work to stock up on groceries. I spend a good 5 minutes standing in front of the pressed juice and kombucha and weird health shots aisle wondering what it is I need to change my life. Everything is overpriced and I end up buying a box of cornbread and some food instead. ($21)
7: - On my way home, I hit up my apartment laundromat to load my card up but realize I left my laundry card in my room. Oh well. I stop by the lil communal library and grab 3 books that seem interesting instead.
8: - I'm home and eat some cornbread while reading. I cook something quickly and eat while browsing Ulta. There is a new incoming pimple on my face and I'm upset. This is my birthday week and I got both my period and period-induced pimples.
10: 0 I end up finishing a skim of the first book and place my Ulta order. Text a couple friends before falling asleep around 12.

Wednesday
8: - A groggy morning spent on the train. I usually read Money Diaries during this time.
9: - Head in, to be barraged by my fav coworker on Slack. She's working at a different office this week and has a good amount of tea and updates. We chat and I clean up my email while doing some work.
12:30 - Get lunch outside with a couple coworkers. It's so nice out and we're located right by a lil park.
1: - Get a lot of work done. I've set myself up with 4 meetings for once I'm back on holiday and I'm pretty hyped to close some business.
4: - I've hit a bit of a wall and feel like an animal pacing my cage as I tab in between my email, Reddit, my work, my spreadsheets, and my money diary. The office feels empty already.
5:30: - Leave the office to get to the train.
6:45: - I'm back home! One of my roommates is out of the country and subletting her apartment in the meanwhile. The current subletter is moving out soon, so I'm helping my original roommate show the place to potential subletters. I'm supposed to call a girl around 7, so text her a heads up beforehand seeing if she was still able to call. Calling out of the blue always feels invasive so I like to check first. She leaves me on read. Ahhh. I waste some time on the internet waiting around for her for a bit.
7:30: - The prospective subletter I was supposed to call to show the apartment was MIA so ??. The second call about this volunteering program I'm intending on joining was also MIA?? It’s not a great day for calls and it always feels like progress outside of work is slow.
8: - I cook a really bad meal and eat it while watching The Bachelorette season premiere. I'll pass on the drama and stuff with the rest of the season, but the intros of these dudes are really funny. Guys get surprisingly catty and I love it.
9: - I hit the gym. It's a good deadlift day! I usually lose a couple lbs off during period week, but was actually able to maintain weight this time around.
10: - Msg R about different animes and mangas and get a couple recommendations. I head to bed shortly after.

Thursday
9: - Breakfast was hella tasty.
10: - Team meeting. Quite uneventful.
11:30: - I'm setting myself up well for next quarter and I'm feeling good right now. There are new snacks in the office... but everyone has nabbed the almond butter cups. Finding and trying the new almond butter cups becomes my personal mission for the rest of the day and I make sure to check each time I pass through the microkitchen.
1: - Have a client call that goes well. The gal is sweet and we manage to connect.
4: - Finally cop a dark chocolate almond butter cup. And ramen.
5: - I head out early to catch the train back to the city. There is an art exhibit in Oakland I've been meaning to stop by and there's a talk at the exhibit during afterhours today about art cabals. Lowkey want to start one and host community-oriented art events for the heck of it, so I feel like this will be a good first stop. I buy my ticket on the train. (8)
5:30: - People watching the different stops of the train is always fun. There was an older woman who had the prettiest gray hair. I think that when I'm older I'm going to embrace the gray or at least dye it a consistent gray since that'd be a look. I nap on the train shortly after.
6:30: - I stop by Whole Foods to get a bit of food before heading over to BART to get to the art gallery talk (8). I refill my BART card with some money on my way (34). There's nothing llke a freshly loaded BART card. (42)
7: - Get to the art gallery! I check out the different installations they've done, talk to a lady who runs her own society (I honestly regret not asking her more about it), and chat with a locally famous Vine author in the Bay Area who I recognized after seeing him in a documentary during the SF Film Fest. They were selling books on the art cabal that the artist of the exhibit started, so I purchase one. I think I was the only person under 30 in the audience. I had hoped to find similar minded people who are in the urban exploration/weird event scene in present day, but I still enjoyed it. (32)
9: - Back on the BART and start heading home.
9:30: - My friend calls becuase I texted him earlier since I was having a mild panic attack. Happens.
10: - I like the new book I got!! It was so worth it!! Read a bit before showering and heading to bed.

Friday
7: - It's my bday! 23! (yeah, I'm the baby at the office) I was never a birthday person because growing up, birthdays weren't particularly celebrated or special, but today feels special.
9: - One of my close coworker gals comes in a bit later and brings in a cake for my birthday! It's a beautiful cake and that has to be one of the nicest things anyone has done for me?
12: - The day goes by super fast. I clean out a couple email tasks and get some housekeeping and administrative tasks out of the way.
2: - We cut and eat the cake! It's really fucking delicious and I'm so grateful. It's a good fun time with people wishing me a happy birthday and chatting about my plans for Austria (mostly them discovering I don't have any clear ones since I'm largely tagging along with my parents). My main goals while there would be to do some shopping, visit the Naschmarkt, see the Spanish Riding school, eat cake at a cafe, attend an opera, and get time to chat with my parents.
3: - My managers are pretty much done with the day so part of the sales team heads out to a bar on the main street. I get a couple IPAs and feel pretty toasty shooting the shit with everyone else. The bill is expensed.
4:30: - I head out early and spend my time on the train calling. My friend calls to wish me a happy birthday and my parents call later as well. I make my way downtown to the restaurant I booked a reservation at.
6: - The place has a multi-course menu that rotates in what they serve on a daily basis. I get a beer, a tomato soup, salmon main, and a really really nice blueberry tarte. I was super full and content at this point though not necessarily sure if I wanted to go out or how to continue the rest of the night. The day was already amazing. (60)
7:30: - I'm back at my apartment and generally cleaning up and drink a cider while I wait for R to stop by. I'm still unsure what I want to do-- get more drinks? arcade bar? I had been experiencing a solid buzz since 3 and my decision making capabilities were out of the picture.
8: - He got me a really cute, relevant gift, and some chocolate from a chocolatier that we were at in one of our earlier hangouts. It was super thoughtful considering he probably had to spend a good hour to cross the city just to get to these spots and pick out these things. It's been a special day all day so I pop open a bottle of really good moscato I got from a Napa trip. We drink and hang and talk in my apartment for way too long as usual and he doesn't head back home until 4.

Saturday
7: - I am up at 7... and realize my flight is at 9:10. FUCK. There is a mad scramble to throw a bunch of shit into my bag. I get an Uber that will guarantee me getting to the airport as fast as possible. This poor dude had to deal with me massively panicking. (30)
9: - Check-in was super confusing since it was a chartered airline, but serviced by United? Regardless, I somehow make it to my terminal with 15 minutes to spare. At this point, I was experiencing a mild hangover, starving, running on 2 hours of sleep, and was completely dehydrated. Running through SFO was physically exhausting and I felt like keeling over. In this moment of weakness, I overpay for a croissant sandwich and a Naked smoothie. I think it was worth it because I could physically feel my hitpoints replenishing while sitting on the ground of my gate in awful condition. (18)
11: - I completely crash on the plane right through takeoff and landing. The woman next to me was a bit concerned and when I woke up when we were in LA, she made a point of letting me know we've arrived. Bless her heart.
12: LAX has a Pret which I've really missed from my time in London. I buy a chipotle chicken wrap and eat it while waiting for my turn to board. It's so toasty and so good and sets me up with just enough carbs to fall asleep again when we board. (10)
12:30: I get a great window seat and crash.
X: - (Time is always funky to me when I'm up in the air considering the weird timezones/crossing timezones. Timestamps are kinda arbitrary at this point out) I sleep a solid 8 hours on my flight throughout the whole thing and woke up briefly to eat cheesecake and chicken from the airplane meal. I was able to also squeeze in two movies -- watching 8 Mile (that last rap battle had me hella pumped up) and The Apple of My Eye (I end up bawling throughout the movie to the confusion of the guy sitting next to me).

Sunday
X: - I land in Vienna with no issue! Honestly it's a miracle. I get a taxi to an address my parents text me-- apparently the apartment we're staying in for the first 3 days is quite hard to find and the ice cream shop address was easier to find. Vienna is a gorgeous city and it's so much warmer than the breezy fake summer San Francisco gets. (28)
1 pm their time: - My dad meets me here! We head up to the apartment where I find my mom! It's so great to see them and we catch up while I change into shorts and a t-shirt. Opening up my luggage was hilarious-- everything looked like it was thrown in last minute but I realized even while slightly delirious and in panicmode, I was able to bring everything I needed. We decide to wander around the city and explore for a bit. We're in the heart of Vienna-- District 1 and walking through the streets has us seeing a ton of gorgeous architecture and shops. We find a place to eat. The place we chose is super touristy, but fun. I loved the apple streudel. It's totally different from the ones we have out here. My parents pay.
4 pm their time: - It's got to be at least 90 degrees out and we are jetlagged. I haven't experienced true hot weather like this in over a year and my parents are weak. We don't get very far walking and end up heading back to the apartment and crash.
X: - My mom wants to take a nap and my dad decides to rest too. I hang out on the couch reading a web serial before falling asleep myself.
8 pm their time: - We all agree that we feel much much better. They are working with 6 hours of timezone difference while I'm dealing with 9 hours. Today was a good day to just rest, see each other, eat and take in the city. It's late at this point and we're hungry again and decide to grab some more food at a cafe down the street. They pay.
9: We wander around the city and stop by the Vienna State Operahouse. They have Othello at the opera today, and although we missed the timeframe to get tickets, they happen to have a large screen outside the operahouse showing the show. There's quite a crowd outside, sitting on benches and on the ground watching Othello. We join in and I get to see the last 30 mins of the opera. So much talent and such a voice even from a recording played to the outdoors.
11: - Back to the apartment and we chat and hang out. We all get ready for bed again. I browse random internet things before falling asleep myself as well.

Reflection:
This isn’t the most typical week since I had a few birthday splurges and overspent on an urgent Uber ride (BART would have been ~$6). As a whole, I’ve been lucky enough that food expenses are on the lower end since work covers my breakfast and lunch, but I’m still a bit surprised by how quickly food costs add up. I also don’t keep track of the cents on my spending since a lot of my tracking is manual, but I do round up and down in a pretty 50/50 manner.
Other thoughts: I think my savings are relatively reasonable-- I have been on track to have a 50% (+/- 2%) pre-tax savings rate. I don’t know what I’m saving towards. Retirement? To start a business? A year long cross-world sabbatical? That’s something I’ll need to flesh out, but it’s sorta a combination of all of those. I also realize my life is kind of chaotic. I do a lot and they’re all in different directions and I often wonder if it’d make more sense to streamline things so I can have better focus. In writing this, I do feel like not having a Savings account is kind of strange.
I had fun with this! Thanks for reading! I hope you guys had a glimpse into my life! And of course, I’d love any feedback on any part.

Bipolar over-sexual overachiever correlation

Hello everyone,
I would like to know if you know any cases/consider over sexuality and overachieving as correlated to BPD. I am thinking my bf may have it, even though I don’t have many proof.
You may also be thinking that I am just in denial about the problems in my relationship and a very probable separation anyways. I know many of you will say that, and it is OK. I am very conscious about being in a very difficult position rn, and even if I am not stupid, I may be in serious denial.
Here is my little story : me (30f) and my bf(26m) were in a - what I thought was a very happy relationship since 3 years. Last week he tells me, out of nothing, and crying, that he cannot be happy in our relationship because he ... well, needs to sleep with other women. He said it had been a few moths since he understood that and he didn’t want to hurt me, neither loose me. But he was not able to ignore these “needs” and either way he would have been unhappy. He says he does love me, and we spent a whole night crying together. So He was sure I was gonna break up because of this, as he knew I was very fine in a monogamous relationship and never understood open ones.
I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW - that is a huge and very clear red flag.
But I was very shocked and, contrary to what I have always believed I would have done in this case, I told him I would consider it - the open relationship. I am considering it, provided I at least find some pleasure in also flirting/kissing or even sleeping with other man. :/ the things you do for love .... He says he is very relieved that we are not breaking up, he is doing some efforts, said he is OK for me to Set some rules/guidelines for our Open Relationship if it will make me more comfortable. He is doing some minor gestures (like sending me cute little texts during the day- we did not use to do that).
So now here it is, why I think that he may have some kind of light/late form of BPD (that is maybe going to get worst)?
Yes I know this still does not mean he may be having some BPD.
But that was just to give you some context. Now he claims he loves me, “girl of his dreams” but is ready to loose me over the sexual needs. He said, not only was he very sorry he would loose me, but at some point he thought he may end up alone, because where could he find “so much love as we have” AND with a girl that would accept an open relationship... and STILL he needs it, his sexual freedom.
He actually never had clear maniac (delirious) episodes, and as far as I know no depression neither. But I know we can be very good at hiding depression ... and I am wondering if his hyper active / overachiever behavior may be some sort of BPD manifestation ? + his need to sleep around even if it would make him loose “the love of his life” - as he said ? He did say that crying. Could it be only starting, at 26 ??
OooooR I am completely delusional, he just really wants an open relationship and/or just doesn’t love me(he may only have pity/inertia, Somme attachement but not real love ?) I know many people will say it. But my point is, does all this ring a bell to any one ? Correlation between overachievement/hypersexuality and BPD ??
Thanks

Jumping through hoops to withdraw funds

Is it just me or is it oddly common to have so many special issues and rules to withdraw your money on any of these sites? I use 3 different investing apps (each for particular things) and they all seen to be very difficult when it comes to getting some money back. I love the set up and easy investing functions of robinhood in particular but ive had such bad luck with bank accounts to either fund my account or original bank account to withdraw cash... (After 3 days of non activity oxf course) and the random fees that show up when your still not sure what happened to acquire them. So as it stands, because I do love the functionality of robinhood and most of my stock play has taken most of my money from there anyways, I just started playing the market again with remaining money to fill my day with something meaningless but has potential to make life easier. I am going to give it this next week to build up some of my losses through some investment digging and bitcoin so we shall see at the end of the week if there's another issue to try and close the account again. I mean it's free trade gimmick is great but they wont accept either of my bank accounts, so the deposit comes in and then days later they send it back and throw a fee on my account. Yet I still have some stocks going that need attention.
(I only invest small amounts for pleasure and to keep my brain stimulated.) So I can imagine if I was more serious or invested alot more $$ and suddenly I cannot use the app at all, even after acquiring a new bank account in hopes you can register with them.... Nope they wont work either... And they slowly move money wish already got me a new swrvice fee for not having sufficient fund's immeadiately 😂 ) I'm deliriously laughing because I'm stuck on this app and love it but I need to go ahead and call customer service I guess and see whats up. Is this common when it comes to investing or is this a new things happening? Now I need to figure out how to do the other 2 apps as well so I can be prepared! Investing is easy and quick, but not so much when ya want some of the profits or money back. Please share your fun times, I need to know how bad my brain has gone lately or if its common. 👌

"The Big Picture" - Dollar Vigilante November Newsletter

It has been an interesting week for me.
First, I was invited to speak at World Crypto CON in Las Vegas and then shortly before the event they told me I couldn’t speak. At the same time they told most of my other anarchist friends they also couldn’t speak and/or they were banned from the event, including Ben Swann, Luke Rudkowski and Josh Sigurdson of World Alternative Media.
I was already in Texas for the Texas Bitcoin Conference and I mostly just wanted to play in their crypto poker tournament anyway so I went to Vegas.
All manner of strange people seemed to be coming up to me, including one woman speaking in tongues. And, a weird energy surrounded the event... so much so that my body was shaking the entire time.
Then they also didn’t allow me to play in the poker event! I paid one guy some BTC to buy his chips and they threatened to call the police on me! I know what happens next when that happens so I left the premises.
Later that night, Josh Sigurdson was poisoned and barely survived. Other anarchists I knew who were there were being accosted, having their phones stolen and other aggressions.
I should mention this all occurred on Halloween. Day of the dead. Whatever happened, karma struck instantly and no one showed up! I then got a message from my wife that she wanted me to come home immediately and I was happy to do so.
She told me that God told her that we had to tell everyone to repent immediately before it was too late and she went into two days of screaming, crying and became delirious after three days without eating or sleeping.
Eventually we had to get her to the hospital to get her calmed down. I’ve spent the last two days with her there and we just returned home as they gave her a number of things to relax her.
Is something strange going on? It sure feels like it. In any case, as I stated in the last newsletter, no matter what happens I am just going to continue on with my work (although spending more time with my family is also a priority) helping people to wake up... that’s all I can do.
Current Events
As I write it is the midterm selections in the USSA. Yet another, “most important election in our lifetime.” All fear propaganda to try to make believe that voting will fix this evil system of slavery. It won’t. But, when they say this is the "election of our lifetimes" they are right on one thing. Politics, central banks and government are very close to destroying the entire world.
Elect to walk away from it all now before it is too late. I know I don’t have to tell TDVers that but it is worth reiterating.
And, the results are in. Anarchy won like it has every single selection.
And the wars continue killing or destroying the lives of millions of innocents, Americans continue to get extorted for trillions of dollars per year, millions of innocents remain in cages in rape camps and the Federal Reserve continues to impoverish and steal from everyone.
Meanwhile, in things that actually matter, the battle over bitcoin has hastened dramatically. But, you wouldn’t know it from the price action.
The complete lack of volatility has only gotten worse (or better if you are in the “volatility is bad for bitcoin” camp).
Here is a chart of bitcoin on October 27th.
For a 24 hour period it traded within a $15 band! It’s like the whole world is just waiting to see what happens next.
And, what will happen next? I am still expecting a panic sell-off along with all worldwide markets followed by a price explosion.
We did make it through October without that happening, but I have pointed out November is also a prime month for it to occur. If nothing major occurs in November then I may have to reassess.
The US stock markets continue to hang in there but really only propped up by a minority of stocks as this tweet from early October points out.
Bank stocks, which are probably one of the most important to watch are off 17% from January of this year.
Meanwhile, crypto exchange Binance made more profit than Deutsche Bank in the second quarter of this year!
As I said last issue, things really couldn’t be going better for the cryptospace, right as it appears that bank stocks and the market as a whole is on the verge of collapse.
On October 26th, the CEO of Visa, Al Kelly, said that he “certainly” does not view cryptocurrencies as a threat to his business right now, but added that “if we have to go there, we’ll go there.”
You’ll have to go there Kelly... better start working on your resume. Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC is about to release its first blockchain-powered handset in cryptocurrencies, making it the first big name in the industry to accept only digital currencies as payment.
Exodus 1, the first version of HTC’s blockchain phone, is priced at 0.15 BTC or 4.78 ETH, which in current trading equates to about US$960.
HTC first announced the Exodus phone in May, which features a built-in digital wallet that will enable users to store and trade cryptocurrencies.
But, the game changing news is that ICE, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange, has announced they will launch their new digital asset platform, Baakt, on December 12th. This will enable traditional institutional investors to easily invest into the bitcoin market.
The total bitcoin market right now is about a $110 billion market cap.
Total value of financial asset worldwide is estimated to be over $300 trillion. Which means bitcoin is only 0.03% of total financial assets held in the world.
If, say, only 1% of that $300 trillion were to go into bitcoin, that would mean $3 trillion would be trying to enter a market worth $100 billion.
In other words, if you don’t own bitcoin and other cryptos by December 12th... don’t do that. And, don’t forget precious metals either.
FinIst analyst Denis Lisitsyn recently said on RT, “The aggressive US policy in recent years has forced some countries to look for an alternative to the dollar and replenish their gold reserves. Worries about the future growth of global economy are an additional incentive for purchases. Many question Donald Trump’s protectionism.”
Sounds like he has been listening to TDV’s Ed Bugos!
In the same article, Vladimir Rojankovsky, LIFA, expert at the International Financial Center said that Hungary, Poland, Russia, China, India, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are all hoarding gold.
This, after Russian ownership of US Treasury bonds dropped from $96.1 billion in March to an 11-year low of $14.9 billion in May.
The writing is on the wall. And almost the entire public has no idea what is happening.
Luckily you do, so stick with us here as we give you are best guidance on how to survive and prosper during and after the dollar collapse.
And get right with your family and God. I’ve had a few moments in the last week where I thought it might be all over and each time I felt despondent knowing I still haven’t done enough. Don’t wait too long.
Coming Events
Due to my wife being in the hospital recently I cancelled going to Steemfest in Poland. I was also going to go to Iran and Iraq on that trip. But, I’ve decided family has to come before work in this respect.
Which means, really, my next major events are close to home with the TDV Summit on February 12-13th and Anarchapulco/Cryptopulco from February 14-17th.
I couldn’t help notice that World Crypto Con, which seemed to be out to kill all of us anarchists, was on October 31st and Anarchapulco starts on Valentine’s Day. Because it is really all about love.
If you haven’t checked out the TDV Summit page lately, check it out. We’ve added a number of great speakers and I still have a few surprises to announce. It is two full days this year and I am able to focus on it fully for the first time as we have a professional management team running Anarchapulco now. And, included in the price is a gala dinner to be held on the evening of February 12th.
And, Anarchapulco just released its main stage speaker list (there will be 5 stages this year). It’s quite the list! Jeffrey Tucker - Anarchapulco Master of Ceremonies
Ron Paul Former - Congressman, Author of 'End the Fed'
Andrew Napolitano - Senior Judicial Analyst for Fox News

There are even more announcements soon, including Larken Rose and many more. And, we haven’t announced the Cryptopulco speaker list yet. It should come out in the next week. You won’t want to miss it.
Anarchapulco will likely sell out by January. And all 1,000 rooms in the Princess Hotel are already close to sold out, so if you want to stay on premises, make sure to book your room now. If you miss it, don’t worry, we’ll likely be filling up a hotel nearby down the beach too!
And, don’t worry about what might happen in the future. Live in the present. Own some precious metals and cryptocurrency. Work on yourself, physically, mentally and spiritually. And spend more time with your loved ones.
Everything else will work itself out.
Now, I’m going to go watch Lord of the Rings with my wife and kids. “Hey kids, did you know that ring of power is an allegory for central banks and government?”

"The Big Picture" - Dollar Vigilante November Newsletter

It has been an interesting week for me.
First, I was invited to speak at World Crypto CON in Las Vegas and then shortly before the event they told me I couldn’t speak. At the same time they told most of my other anarchist friends they also couldn’t speak and/or they were banned from the event, including Ben Swann, Luke Rudkowski and Josh Sigurdson of World Alternative Media.
I was already in Texas for the Texas Bitcoin Conference and I mostly just wanted to play in their crypto poker tournament anyway so I went to Vegas.
All manner of strange people seemed to be coming up to me, including one woman speaking in tongues. And, a weird energy surrounded the event... so much so that my body was shaking the entire time.
Then they also didn’t allow me to play in the poker event! I paid one guy some BTC to buy his chips and they threatened to call the police on me! I know what happens next when that happens so I left the premises.
Later that night, Josh Sigurdson was poisoned and barely survived. Other anarchists I knew who were there were being accosted, having their phones stolen and other aggressions.
I should mention this all occurred on Halloween. Day of the dead. Whatever happened, karma struck instantly and no one showed up! I then got a message from my wife that she wanted me to come home immediately and I was happy to do so.
She told me that God told her that we had to tell everyone to repent immediately before it was too late and she went into two days of screaming, crying and became delirious after three days without eating or sleeping.
Eventually we had to get her to the hospital to get her calmed down. I’ve spent the last two days with her there and we just returned home as they gave her a number of things to relax her.
Is something strange going on? It sure feels like it. In any case, as I stated in the last newsletter, no matter what happens I am just going to continue on with my work (although spending more time with my family is also a priority) helping people to wake up... that’s all I can do.
Current Events
As I write it is the midterm selections in the USSA. Yet another, “most important election in our lifetime.” All fear propaganda to try to make believe that voting will fix this evil system of slavery. It won’t. But, when they say this is the "election of our lifetimes" they are right on one thing. Politics, central banks and government are very close to destroying the entire world.
Elect to walk away from it all now before it is too late. I know I don’t have to tell TDVers that but it is worth reiterating.
And, the results are in. Anarchy won like it has every single selection.
And the wars continue killing or destroying the lives of millions of innocents, Americans continue to get extorted for trillions of dollars per year, millions of innocents remain in cages in rape camps and the Federal Reserve continues to impoverish and steal from everyone.
Meanwhile, in things that actually matter, the battle over bitcoin has hastened dramatically. But, you wouldn’t know it from the price action.
The complete lack of volatility has only gotten worse (or better if you are in the “volatility is bad for bitcoin” camp).
Here is a chart of bitcoin on October 27th.
For a 24 hour period it traded within a $15 band! It’s like the whole world is just waiting to see what happens next.
And, what will happen next? I am still expecting a panic sell-off along with all worldwide markets followed by a price explosion.
We did make it through October without that happening, but I have pointed out November is also a prime month for it to occur. If nothing major occurs in November then I may have to reassess.
The US stock markets continue to hang in there but really only propped up by a minority of stocks as this tweet from early October points out.
Bank stocks, which are probably one of the most important to watch are off 17% from January of this year.
Meanwhile, crypto exchange Binance made more profit than Deutsche Bank in the second quarter of this year!
As I said last issue, things really couldn’t be going better for the cryptospace, right as it appears that bank stocks and the market as a whole is on the verge of collapse.
On October 26th, the CEO of Visa, Al Kelly, said that he “certainly” does not view cryptocurrencies as a threat to his business right now, but added that “if we have to go there, we’ll go there.”
You’ll have to go there Kelly... better start working on your resume. Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC is about to release its first blockchain-powered handset in cryptocurrencies, making it the first big name in the industry to accept only digital currencies as payment.
Exodus 1, the first version of HTC’s blockchain phone, is priced at 0.15 BTC or 4.78 ETH, which in current trading equates to about US$960.
HTC first announced the Exodus phone in May, which features a built-in digital wallet that will enable users to store and trade cryptocurrencies.
But, the game changing news is that ICE, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange, has announced they will launch their new digital asset platform, Baakt, on December 12th. This will enable traditional institutional investors to easily invest into the bitcoin market.
The total bitcoin market right now is about a $110 billion market cap.
Total value of financial asset worldwide is estimated to be over $300 trillion. Which means bitcoin is only 0.03% of total financial assets held in the world.
If, say, only 1% of that $300 trillion were to go into bitcoin, that would mean $3 trillion would be trying to enter a market worth $100 billion.
In other words, if you don’t own bitcoin and other cryptos by December 12th... don’t do that. And, don’t forget precious metals either.
FinIst analyst Denis Lisitsyn recently said on RT, “The aggressive US policy in recent years has forced some countries to look for an alternative to the dollar and replenish their gold reserves. Worries about the future growth of global economy are an additional incentive for purchases. Many question Donald Trump’s protectionism.”
Sounds like he has been listening to TDV’s Ed Bugos!
In the same article, Vladimir Rojankovsky, LIFA, expert at the International Financial Center said that Hungary, Poland, Russia, China, India, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are all hoarding gold.
This, after Russian ownership of US Treasury bonds dropped from $96.1 billion in March to an 11-year low of $14.9 billion in May.
The writing is on the wall. And almost the entire public has no idea what is happening.
Luckily you do, so stick with us here as we give you are best guidance on how to survive and prosper during and after the dollar collapse.
And get right with your family and God. I’ve had a few moments in the last week where I thought it might be all over and each time I felt despondent knowing I still haven’t done enough. Don’t wait too long.

An Open Letter to GrapeNehiSoda

Dearest GrapeNehiSoda,
Why are you here? Not in a cosmological sense of course; that'd be silly to ask because beneath the mysticism we all know we exist simply to reproduce and have some fun while doing it. But I mean here, in Bitcoin, and more to the point of this missive, the /Bitcoin subreddit?
Can it be, incredulously, you feel at home amidst petulant "Open Letters," humorless memes and Hartman's Law "ignoramii"? By "feeling at home" of course i mean you dislike the people within your family yet love them. You cannot identify with them yet simultaneously are of them.
Can it be this deep? Can it be you are driven inexplicably to live and breathe this technological marvel, in absence of true intellect to instead saturate your id within the very heart of Bitcoin's delirious community? Is it possible that no matter the throngs of insipid heathens you must abide, you cherish this subreddit in the same way a man who has been locked in a bare stone prison for decades, upon return home, prefers to sleep on the floor?
Or is it you're just looking for tidbits to help you make money?

Bitcoin news, price analysis and fundamentals. Let's go over some of the important things to consider for bitcoin, ranging from the meaning of the recent dip in price to the reasons for holding bitcoin in the first place.

In many ways syndicalism is the jihad of the working class, and the General Strike is the apocalypse of the ruling class.
