YOU ARE ONE WHO INVESTIGATES

YOU ARE ONE WHO INVESTIGATES, RIGHT?

DOES THIS DESCRIBE YOUR INTEREST IN BITCOIN?

You arrive at this blog searching non Bitcoin terms - but - interestingly, you do have an interest in finding out more about Bitcoin. You probably don't know what the term Blockchain means either. Or, that there are over 800 branded "coins" like Bitcoin on the blockchain technology. You know that you would like to know more - but don't know where to start or who to ask. What luck that you are here today. Here's this blogs best advice.................. The sidebar has "Bitcoin" books and "Bitcoin" links - exploring any of these can be helpful for your learning curve....... But, let's say you simply want to get your feet wet - to actually OWN some Bitcoin - and you are simply wanting to know the first steps on obtaining some Bitcoin............. Cool - because it's not hard to do - but - you DO need to know a few things about OWNING Bitcoin...... First things first - Bitcoin in 2017 is totally legit and you are going to have to identify yourself, and verify yourself, to buy OR to "mine" Bitcoin............Next - there is only a place or two to buy Bitcoin at the lowest price - the main company is called Coinbase. Millions of people have Coinbase accounts. MOST people in America buy their first Bitcoin from Coinbase....... Now, interestingly, Coinbase has an interesting "bonus" to those who sign up - and buy their first 100.00 USD of Bitcoin. BUT - the bonus involves USING AN AFFILIATE link to JOIN Coinbase; I'll explain what and why.......First, ONLY IF you use an affiliate link do you get the Coinbase bonus - this is my link at coinbase https://www.coinbase.com/join/52570ca75308dda35e000033 - IF you use it when you join and then eventually buy your FIRST 100.00 USD of Bitcoin from Coinbase - THEN THEY GIVE YOU 10.00 USD OF FREE BITCOIN - (They Also Reward Me). It's Coinbase's way to welcome American People to Bitcoin.....IF YOU DO NOT USE THE AFFILIATE LINK TO SIGN UP - THEY DO NOT REWARD YOU EVER FOR YOUR FIRST 100 USD - IT'S THAT SIMPLE...DO YOU WANT 10 FREE USD OF BITCOIN... You too will have an Affiliate Link after you join - make sure to share that with your friends when they want to buy their first Bitcoin. Also, when you join Coinbase... You will automatically also have a Bitcoin wallet (and address) - you will need a Bitcoin Wallet to acquire BTC from the only other method of OWNING Bitcoin - to "Mine" it....

Yes, it's true...you really can become a miner................ And, to some people that means REALLY getting into the entire Blockchain scene, learning the language, becoming experts, and eventually buying Mining Equipment...... And, that is fine for some people. BUT...it is time consuming - AND - Bitcoin machines are notoriously "hot and loud" and somewhat expensive to run as they consume lots of electricity.......Which FINALLY brings us to the last quick tutorial for you... the news that you can also RENT "mining" equipment - by buying what is called Hashpower - from a reputable company..... UNFORTUNATELY, reputable mining companies, are few and far between - indeed - I can ONLY recommend the one I am using myself, (and even then I suggest caution in over investing as Bitcoin's price is rising so fast, that to send it out to get it back seems non-productive) - Genesis-Mining...... they are a long running mining farm with low electricity costs - and over 500,000 people worldwide are already "mining" with them from buying Hashpower contracts. That Hashpower is assigned to your rented machines - which "mine" cryptocurrency daily - you are sent your earnings the following day, which they accumulate to send to you automatically .... at Genesis Mining there are multiple coins to "mine" and you set the mix of coins you "mine" - and you can change your mix at any time. The return on your investment will ultimately depend on the price of Bitcoin and the coins you choose to "mine". Obviously, if you re-invest your returns in buying additional Hashpower - your ROI will be quicker. Indeed, after a number of months (less than a year currently) you will be "up" and earning daily bitcoin value indefinitely on the Sha256 contract....it's a longer term view - if a year is to be considered long term. And, like Coinbase, Genesis-Mining also has a "win-win" Affiliate Program for new users - IF you use a PROMO code to buy your "mining contract/Hashpower" - you save 3% on your cost (you pay full price if you don't use the promo/coupon code) - AND - they also provide me a bit of FREE Hashpower for bringing you into the "mining" spectrum. "Mining Contracts" begin at ONLY 30.00 USD,it's a no brainer - Here's my Genesis Mining Code (you can see it in other places on this blog too) lcS0Un - use the code when you sign up. Just click the links, or click the banner at the top of the sidebar. Thanks.

Oh - one final thing - the powers that be - may DECLINE your perfectly valid Visa card - In Other Words - You May Need To Call Your Bank Or VISA to be able to buy - to validate your purchase. It's just one additional way the powers that be want to keep you powerless. Once you do that your order will be approved. Yes...you can use credit cards.

It's really just easiest to get that Coinbase account and buy Bitcoin - or - get that Coinbase account and have someone who owns Bitcoin transfer it to you there via your free Bitcoin wallet and address. Thanks for reading...but, now you are actually ready and have the basics...it's up to you.

IT'S SLOWLY CREEPING IN - CRYPTO CURRENCY IS REAL - MazaCoin PR

As Barfstars know.... Barfstew has been covering somewhat extensively the `nation' branded coins - with the current ultimate example of which is the Maza Coin - a coin designated to be representative of a nation. (Lakota nation.) And, via my connection with Payu Kimitsu on Facebook... I've been aware of some videos that add to the fabric of how awareness builds about CryptoCurrencies.

The first example below is simply someone who wants to encourage the whole movement... who understands that THIS is the time to get in on a new currency standard. (BTW... at Bluetrade's chat box yesterday I again read the 1 bitcoin worth 50,000 idea by NEXT year.... if crypto took over just a small fraction of world commerce. - Something I'm simply repeating here, as you know, some say a million a coin is possible ultimately.) It's from an Indian familiar with this groundswell.... listen to how sincere his anticipation and desire is.



=============================================================
=====================================================================
IF such an urgency translates to the masses and overcomes the built in inertia of folks in 2015... the revolution is at hand.

But, the real gem of a video today is again from the Maza Coin team... again lead publicly it seems by Payu Kimitsu (goes by Payu Harris too) who almost single-handedly is leading the efforts to bring MAZA Coin to the masses for usage via real business transactions.

In the video below you see Payu talking with a local developer in South Dakota.... a developer who didn't really know what the question direction was going to be (you can see him begin to squirm at the 14 second mark) ... who had VERY little awareness of Crypto's (let alone bitcoin or Maza Coin)... and who all of a sudden was answering a question about WHETHER he would take Crypto Currencies for a property.... You will LOVE his answer at 21 seconds as he simply lumps crypto currencies in with all TRADe-ABLE CURRENCIES.

Then, as Payu tells the developer that he'd be the FIRST DEVELOPER to do something like this, (take crypto for building properties).. you can almost sense the guys pride and fear at being so positioned.
"..we feel good about being in a global market... with currencies that are tradable and movable"
Published on Jan 2, 2014
Maza Coin Project Founder Payu Harris talking with Hanni Chaffi about the future of Dream Designs acceptance of Bitcoin and the upcoming Mazacoin crypto currencies


The guy being interviewed is the kind that is the future of certain cryptos.
While the shake out is happening every single day - the huge shakeout and consolidation of bitcoin brands is coming IMO.
=====================================================
=========================================================
IMAGINE A WORLD IN WHICH  GOVERNMENT FIAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE CHOSEN TO PAY FOR GOODS AND SERVICES.

And, one can assume that Payu is behind this too:
The Designators Designated driver service in Rapid city SD signed on today as the FIRST driving service in the midwest to accept Mazacoi as a payment option, if not the entire US. Designators owner John said..."Im happy to accept Mazacoin, it costs me nothing to have a mzc wallet so why not accept it and help support this new tech?" you can find them on FB @ https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Designators/1510403115856483
===========================================
How much MAZA Coin do you have in your wallet?
===================================
So, I assume you noticed the ADULT screen I've placed on this blog at least for now in response to Google getting WEIRD about censorship again. While this blog prior to being a Bitcoin blog was known for being VERY controversial .... and was literally BANNED by GOOGLE for over 100 days.... my feeling was that it was the political edge that got the ban... but... this blog also featured pretty girls and women in photos... never ever nude but sexy often.... and that along with the LURID side links and Sexy Sunday and Sexy YouTube... leads me to believe that it's possible that Google may make this blog private on March 24 (against my will) - and restrict access to ONLY those who have been invited by myself the moderator/webmaster.

I'll explain more as this evolves - but - if you want to visit this blog after 3/23 - then you may have to give me a working e-mail. Sucks I know.

More on this soon.
====================================
==========================================
A few more bitcoin related links and thoughts.
This is how Payu responded..... as I said, coins will be dependent upon PR in this upcoming phase. Payu on top of his game.

Keep your bucks I mean Bitcoin in America is never a bad thought.

For Example

Will Hourly Indigenous Labor Ultimately Prove To Be Crypto-Currencies Real Strength?

In my post on January 29th I mentioned a company (BitWage) currently involved with the local Philippines workers... that converts their American dollars paid for their local work... into Bitcoin ... saving huge amounts of transaction fees for each worker. The idea is of course a natural for `indigenous' people anywhere in the world.... all that needs to happen is to have the idea REALLY take off... unencumbered by TPTB (the powers that be).... and let the awareness of a connected Internet take it's course of power.

And, at least one crypto currency person is at least making a rumble - in the direction of serving the SAME niche that BitWage is - for the American Indian (at least a tiny section of it but what if this worked... it could easily galvanize the many many other tribes) - his name is Payu Kimitsu and he is one of the main players for the MazaCoin.

I am friends with Payu on Facebook.... and wanted to share a post that is only a few hours old that he made and my response:

Talk of boycott swirls around local Indian community...but what would a Mazacoin backed Boycott look like? ok well it's going on 2 weeks since the beer throwing incident and no arrests...the States Attorney is looking at dropping pursuit of charges based on "the children were in no immediate danger" As the Native community fumes and seethes in rage over this clear message we're left to wonder what other options do we have as a community? Enter the Mazacoin Option: if the naive community  got solidly behind Mazacoin and switched 10% of their daily purchases and savings to Mazacoin it would spell a staggering $183 Million loss for the state of South Dakota...the native Community in South Dakota Alone account for $1.83 Billion a year in Tribal GDI (Gross Domestic Income). 10% of that removed from the local economy would be $183 Million lost...But where would it go? Well it wouldn't really be "lost" it would simply be removed from a fiat based economy like the state has currently and re allocated to a Native american based digital system. Since the State refuses to recognize any native american based currency as "Legit" it falls on the tribe as far as taxation and all taxes would revert to the tribes themselves.
But How would the Native Community go about such a feat? that is surprisingly simple... The Kimitsu group is currently looking at a idea to develop a inter tribal Payroll services co that would be able to do just that whereby clients could allocate a % of their payroll into Mazacoin automatically...and the more vendors, and small business merchants that accept Mazacoin as a payment option the more viable a solution Mazacoin becomes as a means of putting financial pressure on the state of south dakota and other states to get off their asses and actually do something to address the recent racially motivated attacks on the Native community...
======================================================================
Now, as you read above, Payu is simply using this as a tool to retaliate for the obscene public incident and lack of moves by TPTB. But, the move away from fiat and into a local based alternative is more than a reaction to injustice at one moment of time... it could be the beginning of who knows what and a reclaiming of economic power.

So... my response to Payu:
Rick Phillips Indeed Payu... why bother waiting for BitWage to do it for you. You are a man of action Payu.... well done and your math and theories about the actions also are dead on.... absolutely this is the way to push the envelope of change IMO. Begin smallish at about 1-5-10% based on the persons comfort level and then watch the multiplier effect take hold within the community as that money NEVER LEAVES the area.... and is allocated better too..... That said, as we know about how BitWage is helping workers in the Philippines it may be good to talk up that idea as one that is a symbol of change for those people at controlling their own money better without banks becoming involved. Bitcoin and the alternatives are the way to avoid their inclusion in everything. The real fantasy is that the entire economy of the tribes gets switched over... imagine these coins EASILY having a similar or greater value to the previous fiat currencies being traded for the last century. And, finally for now... since Maza coin is the 2nd base currency for that group that deals with the United Nations NGO's (non government organizations) - that represents the indigenous people around the world... what IF the tribal folks simply made THIS local experiment work.... then the whole world will of the indigenous may just be starting to be realized. It provides ONE community the direct chance to bring change. Man oh man.
======================================================================================
Much like when in the movie `The Graduate'  the word `plastics' was positioned - Maza Coin may be the secret word for 2015... and Payu may be just the person for the job. Don't believe that Payu is the person that puts his actions behind his mouth and words? See below... yes, they accept Maza Coin.

65% `Not At All Familiar' With Bitcoin - Google Tracking Study For Coin Center

Today's Bitcoin Lead

It's an interesting read on what the current understanding levels are for America.... sad... but a start... what's sad is that about 13% want the Government to BAN it... and only 16% or so want the Government to keep hands off. Read the news about Bitcoin Awareness Here. It would be interesting to know the demographic breakdown and other data right? Here you go.. and the consumer image of Bitcoin is Not Good and words 
trust use
associated with it include fraud and crime - the goal is to move the circles to the upper right.... a long way to go IMO.
=============================================
Bitcoin Spew
The Reddhead newsletter had a great history lesson about Bitcoin as Reddcoin celebrated it's first birthday in February.
Happy 1st Birthday Reddcoin!
This week Reddcoin turned 1 year old and members of Reddcointalk and the Reddcoin subreddit lined up to offer their best wishes to the infant cryptocurrency.
With the amount of development work that has gone into the project it is quite easy to forget how very young Reddcoin is. To put things in perspective it is worth taking a quick look at a couple of other currencies, starting with Bitcoin.
Bitcoin - 1st birthday 3 January 2010
Although the Bitcoin Whitepaper was published by Satoshi Nakamoto on 31 October 2008, it was not until 3 January 2009 that the first block of the blockchain - the genesis block - was mined by Satoshi. The first Bitcoin transaction took place on 12 January 2009, between Satoshi Nakamoto and American cryptographer Hal Finney.
On 5 October 2009 the first Bitcoin exchange rate was published byNew Liberty Standard. By calculating the cost of electricity used to generate Bitcoins the rate was set at $1 per 1,309 BTC, making 1 Bitcoin worth less than a tenth of a cent.
On 10 October 2009 the first online chat was set up for Bitcoin when the Bitcoin-dev channel was registered on freenode IRC. Over the course of 2009, before Bitcoin became 1 year old, versions 0.1 and 0.2 of the Bitcoin wallet were released.
And besides the above, nothing much happened. Of course Bitcoin was a new concept that no-one knew about, but it is still striking to see how it all began. To push the point home, the famous 10,000 BTC pizza was not bought until Bitcoin was nearly one and a half, on 22 May 2010!
Euro - 1st birthday 1 January 1999
The Euro was launched on 1 January 1999 in non-physical form (travellers cheques, electronic transfers, banking, etc.) at midnight. At the time of launch the national currencies of participating countries had their exchange rates fixed to one another, as a way to implement unified monetary policy. The Euro did not actually get its own physical notes and coins until three years later, on 1 January 2002.
It appears that even a fiat currency like the Euro was not immune to what cryptocurrency enthusiasts would refer to as a “pump and dump”. Buoyed by high expectations and plenty of optimistic expert opinion, on the first day of trading (5 January) the Euro climbed to US$1.19 as it was rapidly adopted by traders. However the Euro dropped to parity with the dollar by the end of the year, a 16% drop in value that may not seem much compared with cryptocurrency... but it was enough to spur emergency action from the G7 to set up support for the European currency in 2001.
Reddcoin - 1st birthday / public release 2 February 2014
Reddcoin was launched at a time when the cryptocurrency scene was blooming following the huge mainstream attention paid to Bitcoin at the end of 2013. One year on and the majority of the diverse cryptocurrency projects set in motion in 2014 have faded away and been resigned to crypto-history.
Thanks to its team and dedicated community Reddcoin is one of the few projects that continues to forge ahead with innovation and promise for the future.
