GBTC is the Best Way to Buy Bitcoin (Yes, I am Spiting ALL of the Haters!)

September 8, 2017

A few weeks ago, we put up a video of how you can buy Bitcoin through your IRA by purchasing shares of The Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC). At the time, the shares were in the low $600s, right before they surged to over $1000. Since then, however, they have settled to the mid-$700s, or about 20% higher. In the video, we explore the pros and the cons of the trust. Specifically, we discussed how you can exploit a stock that has actually outperformed Bitcoin over the last year by earning the income tax-free. But we also highlighted the exposure to all the risks of Bitcoin and sold at pretty steep premium (along with a management fee). This begs the question: why don’t you just buy Bitcoin straight from Coinbase or other exchanges? Well, that question is one that countless financial analysts and strategist love to ponder…actually, more like beat down so aggressively that you forget what the ticker symbol is (it’s GBTC…). I understand the risk-averse and cautious investors being timid about Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency, and GBTC. They very well should be – we all should be! Investing in ANYTHING is never a sure-thing, and any investment without proper research and the...

(VIDEO) 2013 Cryptovest Litecoin | Physical Bitcoin Revealed, Volume 9

September 7, 2017

This Physical Litecoin is a 2013 First Edition Cryptovest. Beautiful coin with a large, captivating logo. The story behind the design is pretty interesting! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL! In the fall of 2013, CryptoVest (an investment club in the UK) launched its first edition Litecoin. The design was selected from a winning submission by a user named Zinodaur in a contest that was sponsored on BitcoinTalk.org – a popular Bitcoin forum. Paying homage to the contest winner, this edition is sometimes called “Zinodaur.” The contest was not created to make a profit. Instead it was launched as a form of advertising the CryptoVest investing club and cryptocurrencies. After the design contest, CryptoVest also released a chocolate version of the coin as a separate promotion to get the word out and promote Bitcoin and Litecoin on college campuses There are a total of 4,000 CryptoVest coins that were minted – all of which were made from Zinc Alloy and supposed to be unfunded. There were 3,150 First Edition coins, like this one, and 850 Special First Edition coins. The Special First Edition coins have a “window” in the hologram with the first bits of the public address – very similar...

This is Why I own Civic Coin (CVC) and You Should Too

September 7, 2017

WOW! Not only do I believe that Civic Coin (CVC) is a usable and much-needed coin from which the entire globe will benefit, but I believe in the company and leadership behind it. This furthers my case… At Cryptovice, we created the concept of the “3 Ps of Cryptocurrency Investing” and made a video using Civic as an example: While the token hasn’t performed as well on the exchanges as some impatient people want it to (despite being up 4x since ICO), this is a company that has a long-term game plan for a promising future. To even further my case, Civic CEO, Vinny Lingham posted an article today about token sales and the considerations within. This is an article that has immense value for investors of ICOs and token founders alike, and it’s an article that he voluntarily posted. I highly recommend the 5-minute read! https://vinnylingham.com/a-brief-introduction-to-token-sales-f39415a38450 No other coin – or leader within – has done this. This is a perfect example of the first “P” (People) in the 3 Ps principle.

(VIDEO) The Coin with The Most Upside Today | Investing in Cryptocurrency

September 7, 2017

***THIS IS NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE! Do your research before investing your hard-earned money!*** Verge Currency (XVG) has been around for a couple of years, and it has recently made some noise in the market. We analyze the coin using the “3 Ps” and we also take a quick look at the charts to see if it’s a coin worth an investment. With the partnerships that have been formed, an impressive community, and the recent moves in joining additional exchanges, like HitBTC, Verge seems to be a coin worth consideration. There is massive risk, but since Verge is a competitor of Monero and functions BETTER than Monero, the upside seems to be pretty attractive. What do you think? Leave a comment!

September 6, 2017

Image Source: https://www.newscientist.com/article/2113246-how-can-facebook-and-its-users-burst-the-filter-bubble/ This guy clearly isn’t very excited about Bitcoin! Although, I agree with him that most cryptocurrencies will not exist in the next few years, I think Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, and a few others are here to stay… Below is an excerpt from the article but you can read the full article here. “Safe to say the Aleph blog’s David Merkel is not a fan of digital currencies. In his latest bearish slam lobbed at bitcoin BTCUSD, +5.37% “Where money goes to die,” he explained why he believes most of the players in the crypto market will eventually disappear along with the fortunes of late-to-the-party speculators. “The lure of free money brings out the worst economic behavior in people,” Merkel wrote. “That goes double when people see others who they deem less competent than themselves seemingly making lots of money when they are not.”
