Litecoin Miners To Account For $195 Million in AMD GPU Sales? - CoinAxis

Litecoin Miners To Account For $195 Million in AMD GPU Sales? - CoinAxis

Litecoin miners to account for $195 million in AMD GPU sales?

With the recent run up in prices in litecoin, the second most popular crypto-currency reached a market cap of $1 billion dollars in November.  Litecoin had traditionally hovered around $3.00 for several months, then rose to an all time high of $48.  Litecoin's meteoric rise has recently outpaced bitcoin, which topped the $1200 mark around the same time.  Led by promising news of broader adoption by some of the larger currency exchanges, such as Mt. Gox.  Which says it will fully support litecoin when they've completed the implementation of their new trading engine, code named "Midas". This news has led Coinbase, the largest US based crypto-currency payment processor, to state that they will adopt litecoin after the Mt. Gox, and Bitstamp implementations.

Open Letter To Peter Schiff - CoinAxis

Open Letter To Peter Schiff - CoinAxis

Open letter to Peter Schiff

Stefan Molyneux recently did an interview you, allowing you to further explain your negative comments regarding bitcoin.  Peter, it seems you don't fully understand what bitcoin is, and/or what the current value & future potential holds.  I hope that your rehearsed argument for bitcoin, is not solely because your financial brokerage business, needs to maintain the monetary status quo in order for it to flourish, as most of your recommendations are a hedge on poor monetary policy.  Full disclosure, as I and family members are/have been clients of Euro Pacific.

Competing Crypto-Currencies: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - CoinAxis

Competing Crypto-Currencies:  The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly - CoinAxis

Competing crypto-currencies:  The good, the bad, and the ugly.

The emerging world of digital currencies has created a mad rush of innovation, some good, and some outright shameful.  I will be treading lighting on this subject, because there is an emotional aspect for early adopters of any crypto-currency.  This is not unwarranted, as a passionate group of individuals can bring obscure ideas to light, much like Satoshi Nakamoto did with bitcoin in 2009.  These dedicated, and passionate supporters & visionaries help to create what could be most revolutionary technology in over a century.

Bitcoin The True Free Market - CoinAxis

Bitcoin The True Free Market - CoinAxis

Bitcoin, the true free market

Bitcoin was front and center at the Senate hearings this week in Washington DC.  Where several people testified about bitcoin, and the implications is has for the government, and consumers. This seemed to spark a new round of interest in bitcoin, as it promptly rose to $900.  Thus, triggering the same talk about price volatility, and the alleged bitcoin bubble.  The mysterious nature of bitcoin has placed some of the most engrained financial pundits, and economists in a quandary of sorts.  Many of them are still blithefully ignorant of what bitcoin is, and continue to remain firmly entrenched in the highly regulated & centralized financial system, they so wrongly call the "Free market".

Litecoin VS. Sanitized Bitcoin - CoinAxis

Litecoin VS. Sanitized Bitcoin - CoinAxis

Litecoin VS. sanitized bitcoin

The US Senate has called for hearings to be held about bitcoin, on November 18, 2013.  Recently there has been a lot of speculation about the potential regulatory requirements on bitcoin. This news raged through the bitcoin community, and came about because of the announcement of a company called CoinValidation.  This company proposes to create a blacklist database for government enforcement agencies, to track any bitcoin addresses that have allegedly been used for "illicit" transactions.

Sanitized Bitcoin and Digital Nanny State

Everyday bitcoin becomes more mainstream, and in doing so, it instigates scrutiny from Government officials.  Bitcoin, like any currency, can be bartered, traded, purchased; and eventually any form of exchange can be used in what the State would consider an “illegal” manner.

Is Peter Schiff Wrong? - CoinAxis

Is Peter Schiff Wrong? - CoinAxis

Is Peter Schiff wrong?

Peter schiff did a phone interview with CNBC on Tuesday, where he went on to skewer bitcoin as a "modern day tulip mania".  This was in response to Tyler & Cameron Winklevoss's statement about bitcoin being gold 2.0.  There might be some excitement in bitcoin right now, but it's on a very small scale, given the vast majority of people are not aware of bitcoin, and certainly don't own any.

Gold vs. Bitcoin  

b2ap3_thumbnail_Gold_execorder1933.jpgGold has been considered money for centuries; although, FED chairman Ben Bernanke would disagree. In his now infamous answer to former Congressman Ron Paul's question:  "Do you think gold is money?"  Bernanke had a very puzzled look on his face when posed with such a straight forward question.  His answer was an emphatic "No".  If you understood the position of the Federal Reserve Bank, you'd understand why such a question is a double-edged sword.  The lifeblood of the Federal Reserve Bank is DEBT, and to them, anything other than debt is one more nail in their monopoly coffin.

Open letter to Russell Brand

Dear Russell:

I just finished watching your interview with Jeremy Paxman, aside from Mr. Paxman being a trite individual, it was fantastic exchange of new ideas vs. old.  I'm sure you were expecting Sinead O'Conner, or Miley Cyrus to write you this open-air missive.  Alas, I'm going to underwhelm you, because my fame and fortune are nonexistent.  So, here it is, you get me, Michael, writing you in hopes to get your attention to some important issues, in which are pertinent to your revolutionary interview.
