Raoul Pal

I could listen to that guy all day long.

Either I am easy to convince or a sucker, but when Pal talks about the B coin, it makes me want to buy some. 

Can't wait until I listen to the podcast's that are posted here.

Thank you,  Mattheim

Re: Raoul Pal

I agree, and IMO Grant Williams is no 'slouch' either. After listening to Raoul Pal I immediately became interested in and began researching Bitcoin

Bitcoin mining

Bitcoin mining has progressed to a stage beyond the reach of the average individual.

Initially, one could mine on one's pc - even an old one (way back in 2010).

However, competition has progressed to a stage where one needs expensive equipment - beyond the reach of the average Joe (and even most 'rich' Joes) and this (mining) is now effectively in the hands of conglomorates.

So, effectvely, if one wants to aquire BTC (bitcoin) one is limited to either buying them (number of ways of doing this) or earning them (e.g. take payment in bitcoin for a service you provide).  As time goes by (and the unit is accepted by more and more people) so it will be easier to aquire.

Re: Bitcoin mining

Yeah, initially I got real excited until I watched a few YT videos where they showed BC mining operations powered with what looks to be multi million dollar computer hardware.

So, with my prospector tail tucked between my legs, I bought my first BC on Coinbase.com :-)

Bitcoin Ticker application

Installed the Bitcoin Ticker application on my iPhone, allows me to set audible Coinbase price alerts. Also has easy to use BTC historical price charting capabilities, noticed that BTC price is near 2 year lows, great time IMO to be accumulating small  amounts of BTC

Pretty cool looking so far :-)
