You're not wrong about a lot of that, but you're wrong on bitcoin. While it might not pay lots of dividends, I wonder exactly what % people gained simply from the forks, bitcoin cash, bitcoin gold, and bitcoin diamond? Probably a lot more than any dividends in the stock market.

Bitcoin is not at all bad as an investment, that's absurd. So is the "Maybe we're about to lose it all" stuff, it goes back to the 80% doesn't know anything about the tech statement you made. We know the US isn't banning it, we know China isn't banning it, we know Korea isn't banning it, we know Japan embraced it. The only risk to crypto, is that some quantum computer cracks it. That's not to say the price is guaranteed to go up over any short timeframe, it's just to address the often said, but always wrong assumption that there's some high probability of it going to 0.

The tech behind all of this, will build the new internet, and it'll be based on tokens as a financial incentive which allows for decentralization, so long as the other tech exists, and BTC is the crypto you buy to access these tokens, BTC has a bright future. I'll again recommend my favorite book on crypto, cryptoassets, it does a good job of explaining things in a way people can understand.

I like the word "forging" as an alternative to "mining" as it implies creating something new rather than finding something that is already there. I think at least one crypto uses this term, but I don't remember which now.

For a guide on naming things well (and consistently) I highly recommend Metaphors We Live By, which completely changed how I think about language.

I'm in the same position as you, but I've added these to my reading list:

The Internet of Money: A collection of talks by Andreas M. Antonopoulos, by Andreas M. Antonopoulos

Some Blockchain Reading looks like a good reading list, mostly whitepapers

Introducing Ethereum and Solidity: Foundations of Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Programming for Beginners, by Chris Dannen

Read the Cryptoassets book, it's a superb overview of markets strategy and investing, well worth a read, it will pay for itself many times over.

I can't recommend it - at all. I often look at the 1-star reviews on Amazon to see who really hates a book or product. Gives me a more nuanced look at it. Author seems to be a kook.

How about America's Bank: The Epic Struggle to Create the Federal Reserve. An exhausting, if dry and even boring, look a how the Fed was created. But at least it appears to be fact-based, and based on contemporary accounts at the time. The author spends a lot of time on the politics of how the Fed came about, and less time on more interesting topics, like: What is money? What else does a central bank do? Is crypto going to burn it all down?

There's a lot of paranoia about central banks. But they clearly have smoothed out the boom and bust cycles that used to plague this country. Apparently, the US was one of the last Western countries to adopt a central bank. I know, they are not perfect: see the Great Depression of the 30s, and the Minor Depression of 2008. But we would miss the Fed if it was gone.

Banks and cryptos are going to co-exist for a long time together. Frothing against bankers is understandable, even necessary, especially over the more egregious issues. But let's not forget that banks, and the central banks, of large, developed, technically sophisticated countries, play an important role in helping make everything run.

I'm currently working my way through Chris Burniske's new book Cryptoassets, which I'd highly recommend:

u/tjmac · 3 pointsr/CryptoCurrency

I read "Digital Gold." Would highly recommend, as well as "This Machine Kills Secrets." Both fantastic exploratory introduction works to the community by top-notch, easy-to-understand journalists who turn the crypto revolution into the fascinating, potentially world-changing story that it is through their writing.

• Digital Gold: Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money

• This Machine Kills Secrets: Julian Assange, the Cypherpunks, and Their Fight to Empower Whistleblowers

u/eeeggg333 · 9 pointsr/CryptoCurrency

The whole history of this plus many other currencies all the way up to bitcoin are laid out in this amazing book

A must read for every crypto enthusiast

u/tombusby · 4 pointsr/CryptoCurrency

You completely missed the point.

I suggest reading this book. The guy who wrote it is very likely a better trader than you.

It's always interesting to try to guess what was happening behind the scenes that cause business moves like this to happen.

Really, there are three possibilities that could have happened here that led to someone leaving 8 months after being hired: Johnson got a better offer to work somewhere else, he tried negotiating for an unreasonably higher pay, or, behind the scenes, he was a really bad employee.

I guess there might be a 4th, which is that he was already hugely overpaid, and Ripple realized that the market already knew everything about Ripple, so Johnson was sitting around doing nothing. Personally, I kind of doubt this one, because 8 months is too short of a time frame to really know this.

We will probably never know the truth, unless 20 years down the road, someone writes an investigative piece into the early days of Ripple, like in Hatching Twitter.

Maybe people are just downvoting the idea of selling the coin right now for another because it is a bad idea. It should be very strong until after Feb. 26. Sometimes crowds are just right.

u/CAJ_2277 · 2 pointsr/CryptoCurrency

In light of his early years in WWII, and his subsequent rise to power and wealth, he fits eerily into the vampire plot of Carrion Comfort.

The author also wrote The Terror, currently a miniseries on AMC, and the Hyperion Cantos, btw.

It's a physical USB that can store cryptos so you can set it aside and let the coin grow without having to worry about something happening to it, say you keep it in a computer wallet and your computer gets hacked and they have access to your wallet...if you have your crypto in the ledger they don't have access to or even know you own whatever is on it.

If you can pick up a copy of Bill Stallings (Willian Stallings) book on a torrent somewhere you'll be in a good starting spot.

Or buy it on amazon if you have extra cash.

You're just not discounting your cash versus the risk your taking on, you'll probably go to prison for stealing what are now seen as assets by governments. 1 million dollars to go to prison versus 10 Million? One million doesn't seem like so much if you lose it all and go to the pen for 10-15 years.

That's if you get caught of course, but high-end criminals factor that into their equations.

If the Fed is publicly owned and/or controlled why does the U.S. government have to issue treasury bonds to the Fed when it needs money? Why doesn't the Treasury just get the money free? It's because the government is purchasing the product called the Federal Reserve note from the Federal Reserve corporation which gives the Treasury the privilege to issue it as the nation's currency. Taxes do not fund the Federal Reserve. Its income funds it which comes from government bonds of which they earn interest on.

>Federal Reserve System income is derived primarily from interest earned on U.S. government securities that the Federal Reserve has acquired through open market operations. This income amounted to $28.959 billion in 2005. Additionally, income from fees for the provision of priced services to depository institutions totaled $901 million. The remaining income of $386 million includes earnings on foreign currencies, earnings from loans, and other income.

The reason the income tax was introduced in the Federal Reserve Act was so the government would have enough revenue to pay the interest to the Fed! It wasn't to fund the government which was doing just fine at the time.

Furthermore, when it comes to monetary policy the Fed does not have to listen to anyone in the government. They are not government employees. Government officials can only try and persuade them to modify the money supply or change interest rates, as Trump does frequently, but they are under no legal obligation to enact such changes. The Federal Reserve and its member banks are setup as consolidated LLCs. Shares in the Fed corp are owned by private banks and individuals, many of which are foreign nationals.

The article I posted was well-researched with sources collected throughout the 20th century. People dismiss it as "conspiracy nonsense" without further research because the premise is too uncomfortable to ever accept to begin with. You're damn right it's a conspiracy. Human history proves wherever there is power to be gained or maintained there is a conspiracy to do so. You think the most powerful instrument in the world, money, is exempt? Nonsense. At this point it should be expected.

Iran and Syria have central banks that are sovereign, completely under the ownership and authority of their governments. They are not owned by shares of the Rothschild network of banking institutions. That is what is meant by them not having central banks. Iraq did not have one until after the 2003 invasion. It's also why Syria, Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya and North Korea were or are on the globalist bankers' hit list.

Sorry, we were all scammed by international bankers to enslave us with debt and rule the world. They have the money, they can buy the influence required (politicians, media, industry, science and academia) to push nations towards globalism which is exactly what has occurred. The more people that come to terms with it the greater chance there is to change course. Crypto offers the vehicle but people need to be motivated to use it. If the public actually realized how they've been sold out there would be a revolt into crypto. But most are too busy working two jobs as debt slaves to realize how the power structure works. Just follow the money.

An investment from the CEO of a company who doesn't even know how to deal with politics on his own business, and is extremely biased about many world issues.

An investment from the CEO of a company whose main goal is to make money for its centralized company's shareholders.

I didn't know how you guys see this as "this is the future". If anything, this investment decision alone could be looked back in the future as the "beginning of the end" if lightning ends up failing. It's full of conflict of interest. All the drama in Bitcoin community came from conflict of interest, and this entire roster of investors (excluding a few VCs) is a terrible disaster of conflict of interests.

Before you downvote me down to hell, I just want to clarify that I'm not criticizing lightning or its viability. I'm talking about the investment decision. Before you mindlessly idolize Jack Dorsey, go read the book about Twitter inc.'s history. The drama around Facebook inc. is child's play compared to what happened at Twitter
