How To Buy Bitcoin, A Beginners Guide - CoinAxis

How To Buy Bitcoin, A Beginners Guide - CoinAxis

How to buy bitcoin, a beginners guide

As more people become aware of bitcoin, one of the many questions I get is "How do I buy bitcoin?".  Learning about a new technology can be daunting, especially for those whom are not technically savvy.  I hope to break down a few barriers and get you on your way to purchasing your first bitcoin!  Although, there are many options when it comes to purchasing bitcoins, I'm only outlining a handful of methods.  Please note that you'll have to setup your accounts first, and this may take a period of time.  However, once these are in place, you may buy and sell bitcoins as you wish.  One final note before I get to the guide:  Always use a complex, and long pass phrase when signing up for new accounts.  Also, always use two-factor authentication whenever possible.  Take great care to remember your passwords/phrase, as you are solely responsible for your bitcoins.

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.

How To Buy Litecoin - CoinAxis

How to buy Litecoin

I often get this question from people interested in litecoin, but don't know exactly how to buy them.  Litecoin is faster version of bitcoin that uses a more memory intensive algorithm called Scrypt.  Litecoin has enormous potential in the crypto-currency world, and is currently sitting at a $100 million dollar market capitalization.  Being a newer crypto-coin on the market, litecoin doesn't have the available infrastructure that bitcoin has.  Things like like an online payment systems & exchanges for litecoin are still being developed, and acquiring litecoin in the future should be much easier.  I will outline two ways to purchase litecoin, one that would be geared towards users in the USA, and one that is more for users in Europe.

Gold vs. Bitcoin - CoinAxis

Gold vs. Bitcoin - CoinAxis

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.
