Understand the problems, before understanding Bitcoin

There’s something sinister on the horizon for global markets right now. Any rational person can see it.

Bitcoin has been grappling with the Macro outlook, Faketoshi’s lawsuit and the lingering after effects of Luna and other scams that gobbled up the leverage throughout the crypto system.

However, when chatting with Bitcoiners who ignore the noise and focus on the long-term; there is still a strong presence of positivity and patience.

Let’s take a look at a few things that have been happening recently…

Only the Strong Survive

This bear market has ruined a lot of people. Many have been liquidated. Many have lost fortunes (but many of those fortunes were based on nothing in the first place).

As the crypto world flounders, there are some who simply don’t care what has transpired. They don’t care that Bitcoin has reached $20,000. Because they know the end-game. 

Musings in a bear market

The bear market. Here we are again. Or, to some, welcome for the first time.

It’s that time of the cycle, where conviction is being tested and a reality check is needed for most.

To many readers, you are here because no matter what price you bought at, whichever friend you listened to or whatever reason you think you may have bought Bitcoin; you actually bought Bitcoin for one reason. You may or may not realise it yet, but you made a bet against the current system. You hedged against manipulation. Bear markets make investors realise this. And unfortunately, this bet you made is the furthest thing from being easy.

What is the Bitcoin ETF and what does it mean?

The Bitcoin ETFs are exchange-traded funds that track and mimic the value of Bitcoin. These are traded on traditional market exchanges and allow individuals and more importantly, institutions to indirectly invest in Bitcoin, without having to own or custody it themselves. In other words, the Bitcoin ETF will allow investors to seek return via the Bitcoin price, without actually owning the asset themselves. 

Bitcoin is sovereignly accepted

This week we want to focus on one thing that happened yesterday, the 7th of September. A day that might be remembered in the history books of the future.

Bitcoin was officially adopted in El Salvador as legal tender and the country became the first to officially buy Bitcoin in its sovereign capacity!
