Storyline: What is Bitcoin? With the advent of Bitcoin, the world's premier digital currency, for the first time in history money is no longer controlled by banks or governments, but by the people who use it. But where did this currency come from? How does it work? And is it truly the way forward, or just a flash in the pan?
Optimized for Moving Value Across Space and Time, Bitcoin Fixes the Flaws of Gold and Fiat CurrenciesBy Money & Finance
Money is simply a tool that humans use to move value across space and time. Fiat currencies were clearly designed to be spent. Wanting to save the fruits of your labor with a fiat currency is totally foolish.

Ex-Canadian PM Stephen Harper has said that Bitcoin could be used as a part of a basket of reserve alternatives to the US dollar. He added that central bank digital currencies, or CBDCs, were “inevitable” to some degree at one point, but it would still be subject to various monetary policies. He also expressed his concerns regarding central banks becoming “kind of a general banker” rather than just a financial monitor.

Goldman Sachs has issued a request for information (RFI) to explore digital asset custody, according to a source inside the bank. The RFI was circulated to at least one well-known crypto custody player toward the end of 2020. The bank's digital assets initiative is "part of a broad digital strategy," the source said.
Winklevoss Twins Talk Their Bitcoin Price Target & Potential Stablecoin Regulation on CNBC - Dec 10th 2020By admin
The Winklevoss twins’ thesis is simple. For them, Bitcoin is gold 2.0 that will eventually disrupt gold:
“Our thesis is that Bitcoin is gold 2.0 and it will disrupt gold.”
Based on this observation, the Winklevoss twins believe that Bitcoin will reach the gold market cap in the next decade. The gold market cap is currently $9T.
The advantage of Bitcoin is that its monetary policy is programmatic. Everything is predictable. We can therefore estimate fairly accurately the number of Bitcoins that will be in circulation in 2030. This number will then be 20 million BTC.
If Bitcoin has a market cap of $9T in 2030, the price of Bitcoin will be $450K.
Over the next decade, the great monetary inflation we are currently experiencing will continue to intensify. Under these conditions, the U.S. dollar will continue to weaken, which will boost the price of gold, but also the Bitcoin price.
Under these conditions, the Bitcoin price could be closer to $500K than $450K with a market cap similar to that of gold in 2020.
The reasoning of the Winklevoss twins is the same reasoning that many Bitcoiners do as well. It is based on three major elements:
The law of supply and demand.
The gold market cap.
The endless inflation of the U.S. dollar.
With its current price of $18K, Bitcoin has enough to offer a 25x gain to all those who will choose to buy it before becoming HODLers.

Virus-hit Wuhan has two laboratories linked to Chinese bio-warfare program
Virology institute there has China's only secure lab for studying deadly viruse
Here is more info from reddit user DodgeyEdgey:
Here you go. In 2015 there was a test done at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. It was headed by Ralph Baric. https://www.the-scientist.com/news-opinion/lab-made-coronavirus-triggers-debate-34502 The purpose of the lab test was to manipulate a bat coronavirus to see if it could infect humans. It was discovered that it could. https://www.nature.com/articles/nm.3985
One of the people who co wrote the paper was a Chinese researcher by the name of Xing-Ye Gi. Google scholar shows Gi has written or co-written numerous papers on SARS, ebola and coronavirus. https://scholar.google.co.uk/scholar?as_q=&num=10&btnG=Search+Scholar&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&as_occt=any&as_sauthors=%22Xing-Yi+Ge%22&as_publication=&as_ylo=&as_yhi=&as_allsubj=all&hl=en Gi works in Wuhan.
"...According to modelling by the University of Washington, that death toll could double to more than 511,000 lives lost by February 28 next year.
And as infection rates soar across Europe, the World Health Organisation has warned of an "exponential" rise in cases across the continent."
We have seen the pandemic Summer. Now we get to see what happens in Winter

Jehovah's Witnesses demand 25 million from the state
Published 9 Jul 2020 at 17.00
Jehovah's Witnesses have been denied state funding for several years.
Last year, the government overturned the decision - and now the organization is demanding SEK 25 million in compensation.
After being denied state subsidies twelve years in a row, the government last year approved the organization as eligible to receive grants for denominations.
The reason was a ruling by the Supreme Administrative Court which ruled that the practices of Jehovah's Witnesses - such as denying blood transfusions - do not in themselves constitute sufficient grounds for denying state subsidies.
Requires SEK 25 million
Jehovah's Witnesses believe that their rights under the European Convention have been violated.
Jehovah's Witnesses are now applying for damages of nearly 25 million in compensation for the years without support, as evidenced by documents produced by News Agency Siren.
The claim, which has been sent to the Chancellor of Justice, applies to both financial and non-pecuniary damage. Jehovah's Witnesses also include legal costs to claim their case.

"The lines say we might go up to 1 trillion or down 0, no financial advice though."fast forward 1 day: price went up or down"See? I told you guys!" Now it is official: if it goes up, we will see higher prices.
I know for certain we’ll hit 10,900 so there’s a good chance we’ll pass 10,800 along the way. But no guarantees. You can also take a loan.. A second mortgage on the house.
Or sell some organs....
Or sell some of your grandmothers organs.... she won’t need those kidneys soon anyways and you could have some precious BTC
Sell futures to your own organs and buy them back with the appreciated bitcoins after they've goon up!
Don’t forget to ask relatives for money. Tell them you are in danger of losing your house. Once they give you money, immediately take the whole chunk of money and market buy Bitcoin.
My long lost Nigerian cousin who is a prince told me something similar. Except he needed it to buy his village back. I'm still waiting for him to tell me everything is okay. ☺️ I just sold, so this might be going moonward, boys.

couple things to put in perspective.
we have only eradicated 2 diseases from the planet, smallpox and rinderpest.
the bubonic plague is still around. there was another case this year in the us. antibiotics have rendered the once greatest plague in history almost an afterthought.
H1N1 was the common flu strain in 2018. that is the same viral lineage that spawned the spanish flu of 2018 and swine flu.
these plagues continually fade away and resurface. So yes, covid will fade, but it may come back a later date. the key is keep an eye out for aggressive strains, and take appropriate actions to contain them.
