Robert Steele is a former Central Intelligence Agency clandestine services case officer. He was interviewed today by Alex Jones on Infowars and said that in light of the war on free speech a new internet is needed.
He said, and I quote: "Steemit is a good start!"

The latest amendment to the bitcoin ETF proposed by the Winklevoss brothers, also known as COIN, is all the buzz lately as the deadline for SEC approval occurs on March 11. From a socionomic perspective, there is a good chance this ETF will be approved because bitcoin prices have been steadily rising for 2 years now.
However, I see this as the same old routine of trying to fit a brand new, superior class of digital investment into a legacy, inferior framework of digital investment. Several problems em
I am running the numbers and this is quite normal. They are ALL down - this is what always happens when bitcoin spikes. Everything is prices in bitcoin so all crypto-coins go negative.
I sold a whole bitcoin yesterday and as usual, the price spikes an hour after I send the coin. All good after waiting for the first confirmation - forty minutes in a cafeteria with one of my regular customers. Last time it was a first time buyer. I was holding $35,000 of his pesos, and he was waiting for his two bitcoins to arrive. Read on to find a possible fix.
So you can blame me for selling bitcoins, spiking the price, and now your Steem digits after the dot go further to the right. It really does not make that big of a difference in
Who is wise? One who can tell what will be hatched from the egg that has been laid. Not he who can see the future - that is a prophet. Wisdom is seeing tomorrow's consequences of today's events.- Babylonian Talmud
Some people are able to tell the future with incredible accuracy. This gift is born from an immense amount of time and energy spent in studying and watching the logical results of certain decisions. There is a reason some folks knew the housing crisis of 2008 was coming - they foresaw the natural outcomes of borrowing money that could not be repaid. They were able to profit magnanimously because of their wisdom.
Such is the nature of making money - we see it with our imagination. We hear of an opportunity and we immediately begin thinking about ways to create value from it. This is not done with our eyes. We see it in our minds, and create the mental images of what result we wish to see. The money we are able to earn is a correla
USD values are calculated per day via API feeds from Poloniex (for STEEM and SBD values in BTC) and Coindesk (for USD value of BTC). For the hourly breakdown graphs, I show the USD values using the weighted average for that day. For the top 50 reports in USD terms, I then took the average USD value for STEEM and SBD for the week using the daily average which came out to:
Please see the first report for a detailed explanation of my personal assumptions related to what this data could mean (along with commentary on previous reports). What it does not show is people powering up, powering down, or if they are buying or selling on an exchange. It's just some interesting dat
Bitcoin is an amazing technology that captured the imaginations of many people. Various individuals were stunned at the idea that mathematical algorithms could form the basis of our money, rather than central bankers and corrupt politicians, as is normally the way today. People were seduced by the idea of sending value around the world in a matter of minutes, a currency uncontrolled and uncontrollable by authority, and sending micropayments to websites to read their articles - instead of having to tolerate clickbait content beholden to advertisers. Bitcoin has delivered on some of those promises, however, it's 8 years on and it still seems to be far from mainstream adoption.
If we take a step back from the hype and the dream of Bitcoin - still alive in the minds of many of us - we can see that Bitcoin has a few key problems. The main problem is, it's too hard to use. People have to use long addresses which l
I've been back home from my six-month gig in Qatar for about two weeks now. Much of that time has been used performing the tasks around the house that needed doing as well as spending time with the family.
I managed to hit up a few thrift stores but prices seem to have increased substantially during the time I was gone (looking at you Goodwill). Items I used to see priced at $8 are around $12-15 now. That is really cutting into the profit margin. Not to mention that USPS shipping has gone up again.
So my purchases were minimal.
The family and I stopped by an independent thrift store about 15 minutes before they closed. I must thank the wife, as she needed to use the bathroom and knew there was one there.
Ever wonder how much data breaches can cost a company? Well, Yahoo now has their answer. $350 million dollars to be exact.
The purchase of Yahoo by Verizon has been renegotiated due to a number of data breaches which have come to light after the original price of $4.8 billion was established in July of 2016. Three different data breaches, totaling over 1.5 billion records, have now been reported by Yahoo. These breaches date back to 2013 and were not disclosed prior to the sale of the company. This may constitute an infraction of proper business practices and government investigators are looking into that aspect.
The new price has been adjusted down by a cool $350 million because of the data breaches. The terms of the new deal now state Verizon will pay $4.48 billion and both companies will share the legal, regulato
You know, there is a term in the investing world that says don't chase good money after bad. Sometimes, we just can't help ourselves though :-)
Like many others - I bought a little more steem today, roughly 1k.
I still do believe in the long term potential of steem and the returns I can see on my steem dollars. However, if I was to just look at my data history since buying my first bitcoin in early August 2016 there is a clear pattern smacking me in the face.
Luckily I bought my first bitcoin around the $550 level and some more around $600. That investment has worked out quite well as my bitcoin investment has been positive since day 1 and profitable. Obviously I wish I'd of held all of it but that's not the point here.
My Steem investment has been negative since my first purchase (of severa
When trying to figure out and construct a trade you have to have a few ideas in your head, you have to see what other traders might see to figure out the probability of your trade being a success and how much you stand to gain or lose.
I'm looking at getting into a trade in Bitcoin now, using the 15 minute charts.
Looking at the daily chart, Bitcoin is clearly in an uptrend. This skews the probability in favor of taking a long position (buying)
The uptrend gives me the context of the market and allows me to construct exits and entries. Reversals are less likely in this environment, I therefore need a higher reward to justify any reversal trades.
Here's one potentially...
Today is 26th day of first lunar month. 今天是正月二十六日。
On this day, the Goddess of Mercy opens vault for people to borrow lucky money. Those who has borrowed last year will also. You can also borrow luck which is given in the form of mandarin oranges. Similar, if you borrowed luck last year, be sure to return this year. The idea is you should return more than what you borrowed. On this day, the Kwan Im Tong Hood Cho Temple in Bencoolen Street, Singapore is very crowded.

The @little-peppers have been getting more and more involved with providing food for the family, and that includes gardening. Seeds can be expensive though, so we will give you a simple demonstration of one way to save money on some great seeds. Today, we will be using Amaranth as an example.
This is a package that we picked up from a Natural Food store. Amaranth is a great grain to use, and we even grew some of our own last year. Since we got some Amaranth to use, we figured that we might as well test to see if the seeds will germinate.
These are Organic, Non-GMO seeds, and they should be fresh. Therefore, there is no reason that they should not sprout. The bonus is the price and the quantity.
This one pound package only cost
Speculative Short Duration Day Trades with Tight Stop Limits
Hold current STEEM and prepare to accumulate at lower levels
The STEEM price dropped -6.68% verse the USD over the past 24 hours on close to slightly higher volumes as the STEEM price remains caught between its liquid STEEM oversupply and the flight of traders to Bitcoin. The Exchange Transfer Report produced by @lukestokes shows the current outflow of STEEM to the exchanges (9.6:1 ratio of out to in). We may get a break over the next few days as the power down rate through Sunday is lower (only 1.75 million STEEM), however, Monday and Tuesday once again will see large power downs. The price of Bitcoin has mostly stabilized over the last 24 hours but the high trading volume is still drawing traders out of altcoins. We may see a bump in the price over the next 48 hours if Bitc
I sold some puts this morning on UNG, an ETF that tracks the value of Natural Gas over time. However, this tracking is not perfect and decays over time, mostly because of the effects of contango in the Natural Gas futures market. So it is generally not a good idea to own UNG outright, but to take advantage of options premiums by selling puts and calls. Also, playing futures contracts directly is a good way to avoid this decay.
The trade works as follows:
Sell Mar 31 UNG $6.50 puts for $0.3 each – Net cash outlay is $650 per contract – Collect $30 premium per contract
If UNG holds $6.50 by March 31st expiration, then I collect the $30 per contr
Well, I remember years ago first hearing about Bitcoin and something inside me poked me & I knew I should have invested more time into research and funding then but I did not take it as seriously over the years as I should have.
I had devoted the bulk of my time since 2009 into my community helping people and learning government policy and calling out the corruption of same. I put everything aside including a lot of my Real Estate business to help others and my community.
I have done this too often, and every time it has gone the wrong way. But I am doing it again. I just put another whole damn bitcoin into steem.
I am a big believer in steem. I have seen it work and I have seen the many great people that steem has attracted and the wonderful content we can find here on a daily basis.
Effectively all of the money I have put into this system so far has evaporated. There are reasons for this. Steem has solved some problems before they were problems and is not focusing enough on its core business model, which is to create valuable content and attract value so that content providers get rewarded according to the value they provide. The roadmap is full of technical details but the core busi
Three years ago I started investing at a local investing group Alexandria. One of the things I found out was my investments at the emerging markets (Asia, Africa and East-Asia) was doing pretty nicely and is showing promise. Nothing like Bitcoin is doing right now, but still on the positive side.
Today, they made me an offer to invest 1700 € into a 5 year high risk investment warrant derivatives. I'm not sure if I really have the money, but it sounded pretty interesting from the get-go. The deal is, that if the investment warrant goes up noticeably, they'd call me and ask me if I wanted to sell it and redirect the profits to my current 20 year investment plan. If it goe
