Tone Vays went to extraordinary lengths to convey to viewers of his, Trading Bitcoin show, that the price of Bitcoin has been turned on its head. Seriously, I have not doctored this image. You can check out the upside down Tone episode for yourself here.
Of the technical mishap, the Bitcoin trading expert said, "I didn't do anything different, but for some insane reason, my webcam is showing me upside down. And I have absolutely no idea how or why, because the last time I used my computer I was streaming as a guest on the hyperwave channel and my camera was not upside down."
Well, at least this 'Tone flip' gave Bitcoiners something to smile about during the 'price flip' ... and perhaps an opportunity to 'buy the dip'.
BitcoinToTheMoon.com has rocketed to the Google moon, reaching number 1 for the search term, 'Bitcoin to the moon'.
Like the Bitcoin price, Google rankings can go up and down, so I captured the moment in time when this website first reached the search pinnacle for the popular phrase. That's one out of ONE MILLION, SEVEN HUNDRED AND EIGHTY THOUSAND results. Nice :)
Now, here's to establishing a long term hold on the position. Cheers, and Bitcoin to the moon!
Bitcoin trading expert, Tone Vays', recent interview with controversial Bitcoin figure, Richard Heart, revealed areas of disagreement, including Richard's upcoming ICO. They do, however, share common ground in relation to where they hope Bitcoin will go.
Richard Heart: "Bitcoin to the moon. I hope."
Tone Vays: "Yes, I agree with the Bitcoin to the moon part."
Well said, gentleman. Bitcoin to the moon. Let it be so.
Australian company, Boost Juice has teamed up with cryptocurrency exchange, CoinJar, to give away a whole Bitcoin each week for four weeks, in their Bitcoin Boom or Bust competition. For your chance to win, buy a Boost, enter the code that comes with it into the new Boost app and have a guess at what the price of Bitcoin will be (in Australian Dollars) next Monday. They will even generate a guess for you if you'd like.
Once your guess is locked in, no one else can make that same guess. And to stop people entering guesses at the last minute, entries will close 24 hours before 12pm each Monday.
Watch the promotional video above or visit the competition page at the BoostJuice.com.au for more details.
Journeyman Pictures recently published the full length version of the 2016 documentary, Magic Money: The Bitcoin Revolution, on YouTube. Prior to this, only the preview was available free of charge.
It runs for just under an hour and features prominent members of the Bitcoin space, including Tone Vays, Trace Mayer, Roger Ver and Jeff Berwick. The inclusion of the latter two has drawn some criticism, as both are now better known as promoters of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) rather that Bitcoin (BTC). That being said, it must be remembered that this documentary was produced prior to the Bitcoin Cash hard fork, at a time when Ver and Berwick were still strong advocates of Bitcoin.
While much has changed in Bitcoin and cryptocurrency since the making of this film, I believe that it is still informative, interesting and worth watching. I hope that you receive enjoyment and value from viewing it too.
Talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, took a humorous look at Bitcoin, as she explained to her audience what it is. Well, sort of.
Please note that no digital baby goats were harmed in the making of this video. Enjoy!
On the latest episode of Domain Sherpa, Media Options CEO Andrew Rosener revealed that his company purchased the domain name Jellyfish.com for 12.5 Bitcoin. When the transaction took place, Bitcoin was valued at $5,000, making the total US dollar price $62,500.
And what happened to the price of Bitcoin after that? Let's just say that Andrew gained some wisdom from the experience, which he shared by saying, "Lesson to the audience. If you've got Bitcoin, don't spend it."
Nine years ago, on January 3rd 2009, Bitcoin became a reality when Satoshi Nakamoto mined the Genesis Block. This very first block came with a reward of 50 BTC. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Happy Birthday Bitcoin and here's to many more!
Less than two weeks after its release, the second 'Bitcoin to the Moon' merchandise logo has been stolen by counterfeit t-shirt producers who already have it available for sale at AliExpress.com
While these thieves obviously appreciate cool design when they see it, and the logo does promote this website, they will not be let off the hook. It would be easier just to turn a blind eye and take the attitude that it's a losing battle and will happen again anyway. However, if no action is taken, it's like giving the counterfeit operation the green light without even causing them any inconvenience. Bitcoin to the Moon will take a stand.
I'll post an update on the result of the action as soon as it comes to hand.
In the meantime, if you want an official, approved 'Bitcoin to the Moon' t-shirt, you can get one here: Bitcoin to the Moon Merchandise Store.
Happy New Year Bitcoiners! Welcome to 2018. This time last year we were completely unaware that the price of Bitcoin was about to go parabolic and thrust the cryptocurrency onto the world stage like never before. Very few people would have believed you if you'd said that Bitcoin would climb from less than $1,000 to nearly $20,000 a coin before the year was out. In fact, most would have laughed or mocked.
So what does Bitcoin have in store for 2018? Could we see a flood of Wall Street money push the price all the way to $100,000 per BTC? Will there be a major exchange hack or government regulations that spook investors, leading to a crash and extended bear market? Personally I'm on the positive side, looking for a significant move upwards, and I certainly wouldn't be surprised by 100k. This website is 'Bitcoin to the Moon' after all.
New Year optimism. There's nothing quite like it. I was reminded of this yesterday when doing my daily exercise. The place where I go for this was packed. Getting a park was almost impossible, as even the illegal parks were taken. People were everywhere. You could feel the 'get fit, lose weight, eat healthy' New Year's resolutions in the air. And that's great. I'm happy to see people wanting to improve their physical well being. After all, if you don't have your health, it doesn't matter how much Bitcoin you have.
The thing is, that at the start of the year, on a beautiful day, and a holiday at that, filled with optimism and surrounded by like minded people, motivation and a positive outlook come easily. This won't be the case as the days, weeks and months pass. Sooner or later the day will come when holidays are long gone, you're tired and stressed, the weather is lousy, the crowds have disappeared and those who shared a smile and an encouraging word have decided to stay at home. This is the true test of whether or not a resolution will become reality.
If you entered the Bitcoin market in 2017, well done. You have seen the price go up and up, while the corrections have rebounded quickly to achieve further all time highs. Not only that, but many others have joined you on the journey. People from all walks of life, some of whom had never even heard of Bitcoin before, have piled in to get themselves some BTC. Exchanges haven't been able to cope with processing the number of requests for new accounts. It's been one big Bitcoin bull run party. Until now.
The recent fall from nearly 20k to under 11k did rebound, but it is still significantly below the all time high. The market is moving sideways, looking for a breakout to the upside or possibly even the downside. Now I think it will move up, however, it may not. Some are selling their Bitcoin and getting out, while others are exchanging their BTC for the latest fad altcoin where the price is pumping. These are the most testing times we have faced since the start of the 2017 bull run. What should you do now? What will you do if the price falls?
What will I do? Learn from the past. In 2011, Bitcoin fell in price by more than 90% from $32 to $2. The amount in dollar terms seems small now, however, those who bought large quantities at $32 faced a tough situation after the crash. It's easy in hindsight, but it wouldn't have been easy at the time. Next, towards the end of 2013, Bitcoin's price spiraled downwards from a high of $1,100 into a long term bear market that went as low as $200. Again, testing times for people who bought in near the peak.
Those who have believed in the technological innovation of Bitcoin and its potential for changing the future of finance, have in most instances, held during the market downturns. This decision has paid off handsomely, as they have eventually seen their Bitcoin rise in value way beyond previous highs and in some cases beyond their wildest dreams. This is the kind of motivation that can help you to stay strong when everyone around you has given up.
Speaking of up, one way or another, I believe that's where Bitcoin is going.
Bitcoin to the moon in 2018!
