Dash vs Hyperinflation (or, Why Fiat Currency Sucks)
Hyperinflation happens more frequently than a lot of people think. Venezuela is a current example, but we've seen a similar thing in Zimbabwe in the last ten years, the Argentine government has revalued the peso 4 times in the last 50 years, and there are even historical examples from the United States and Germany. Let's talk about how Dash and other cryptocurrencies are helping people handle the problems of hyperinflation in Venezuela, and give you some historical context about the failure of fiat currency, and why you shouldn't trust governments with the money supply.

Dash saves Venezuela? Quick case
Crypto fanatics have been asking for a long time, when will this technology reach mass adoption? However, for many years the situation wasn't ripe. Bitcoin wasn't user-friendly enough, it was hard for non-techy newbies to get involved, and they didn't have an incentive. That seems to be changing, with Dash helping merchants and users get involved, giving the people of Venezuela a new tool to improve their situation during a crisis.

Bitcoin - Predict the Price? Part 2
Lots of people who are involved in crypto have opinions about the direction of the market. People standing on the sidelines can tell you that it's over and will never recover after the crash in 2018. However, for people who have been in this for a while, we can see the patterns. Bitcoin bubbled at $30, $200, $1,000, and $20,000, and some were even expecting the rise and fall. Nobody knows the day or hour when these patterns and cycles will play out, but we can say at least that they probably will. A bubble will form and a bubble will pop. The price will jump up very quickly just before a crash. There will be a sell-off after Christmas... and the loudest people will lose interest when the real growth begins.

Bitcoin - Predict the Price?
Is it possible to know where the crypto market is heading? Can you tell when the market is overbought, overheated, and getting close to a correction? Here are three simple ways you can get an idea of where the crypto market is heading, especially when a lot of money is moving into the market, and it's reaching the peak of a bull market. Let's look at our own biases, then our own emotions, and finally some patterns of behaviour of others on social media. Please upvote on Steemit: Website: Facebook: YouTube:

Bitcoin Scares Banks - Kosh Eek
A few years ago, Kosh Eek realised that Bitcoin was a disruptive technology that he could personally use to withdraw his power from central banks - the entities which enable so much war and suffering in this world. Kosh saw that crypto assets could change the finance industry in a similar way to how Napster and BitTorrent changed the film and music industries, how Uber changed the taxi industry. Kosh saw a chance to make the world better in his own small way, and by an interesting coincidence, he was rewarded for it.

Why Kosh Eek Bought Bitcoin Early
When you hear someone is a Bitcoin early adopter and that they've done well, you might think that it's a matter of luck. Little do you know the hundreds of hours of research that went in to their decision to buy early. I interviewed Kosh Eek, co-founder and host of the Decentralized Podcast to discover his experience as an early adopter. Kosh had greatly researched the context of the monetary system, the history of the gold and silver standards, and so he had a vision of what cryptocurrency might become. Listen to this episode to discover what Kosh's thoughts say about the karma, and about how being willing to look at bizarre aspects of life, can be profitable.

Bitcoin is like Poker
If you've listened to a lot of interviews with successful investors and entrepreneurs, you might notice that a lot of them play poker, and some of them even recommend it as a way of improving financial acumen. There are many reasons: poker is a game of incomplete information, you have to assess risk quickly, be decisive, and emotionally deal with the consequences of a decision, whether it turns out to be good, bad or unknown. Let's talk about the ways poker is similar to speculating, in bankroll management, being aware of deception, information asymmetry, letting your stake match your knowledge, and planning ahead.
