Bitcoin has exploded higher again to now hit well over $1,650 on Coinbase today.
There are a few lingering myths about bitcoin, however, that seem to find their way into every comment section on bitcoin.
So, let’s address those now.
IS BITCOIN “THE MARK OF THE BEAST”?
Many of those aware of biblical prophecy say that bitcoin is the “mark of the beast”.
But, is it though? Let’s look at the bible verse pertaining to this:
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)
We’ve covered the ongoing War on Cash more than any other publication on the internet. And, we find it quite chilling to realize that it is quite clear the Powers That Shouldn’t Be (PTSB) are rapidly moving us towards a worldwide system of commerce which can be fully tracked and controlled so as they can shut down any man who may wish to buy or sell with the click of a button, effectively making it impossible for him to survive in today’s world.
It is clear, especially through what they have done as test cases in Greece, Cyprus and India, that they want to remove cash because of its anonymity and inability to be turned off at the press of a button.
But, does bitcoin play into this control grid or is it one of the only things that can save us from it?
The weakness of bitcoin is that it does have an open ledger. For that reason, every transaction can be seen. This is true.
However, anyone who wishes to cover their tracks with even a slight bit of technical know how can practically ensure that no one can find out who actually made the transaction. And, it should be mentioned, that bitcoin could become more anonymous over time. It would not be that difficult to include more anonymizing features into bitcoin which other cryptocurrencies such as Dash and Monero have (and that’s why we have featured both Dash and Monero to TDV subscribers and made them hundreds and thousands of percent gains).
But, the real key for bitcoin is that it cannot be “shut off”. The only way to shut off bitcoin is to turn off the internet… which of course is an option for the globalists… but unless they do that you cannot stop bitcoin nor stop any man from buying or selling with it.
For this reason, we see this as the free market’s amazing attempt at creating a currency that goes around the “mark of the beast” attempts at total control over money.
Because, let’s face it, if government continues to get worse and worse and locks down on every transaction, then even things like gold and silver will be in trouble. They are physical and if the government wants to clamp down on it, they’ll have a far easier time than with bitcoin. Just look at the US in 1933 to see how easy it was. Gold was outlawed in 1933 and Americans in the Land of the Free could not legally own gold for forty years after.
This is not to say that I dislike gold and silver. I am one of the biggest proponents of the precious metals in the world and we still recommend people hold the majority of their assets in gold and silver over bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
But the fact of the matter is that if the government/NWO gets even more powerful, cryptocurrencies may be the only safe haven left that they can’t totally control. Of course, we hope it never gets that far and believe that if everyone began using cryptocurrencies today it would destroy the central banks and enable most people to hide their transactions enough to avoid being extorted by government to the point of destroying government itself.
And then we’d have peace and prosperity on Earth like we’ve never known it. But that is still a way’s away.
IS BITCOIN A CIA INVENTED PSYOP?
This is one I’ve heard mentioned more often lately.
The fact that everyone is so aware of the level of control, propaganda, false flags and hoaxes perpetrated by the CIA and globalist organizations is absolutely wonderful!
Think about it, even 15 years ago hardly anyone knew about these things. Now so many people are aware of them that they think everything is a psyop!
Not everything in the world is a psyop. Plenty is, though, so it is good to be vigilant.
Bitcoin is particularly attacked because no one actually knows who created it!
This is true. But does that mean it’s a psyop?
The #1 reason I can think of that shows that this is not that case is the following; Bitcoin truly has the capability to destroy central banking. Without central banking, government cannot exist in its current form and would very likely be reduced massively… even completely.
If this is the case, why in the world would the people who control the entire system of governments and central banks create something that no one had ever thought of before that could destroy them?
It makes no sense. If they did, however, then it has backfired massively.
Some say that government created the internet. Sociopathic liar, Al Gore, even claims he created it! And, it is true that some parts were used in what the internet is today. The TCP/IP protocol, for example, resulted from research and development conducted by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in the late 1960s.
But, most would agree today that even if parts of the internet came about as the result of research conducted by evil government agencies, it has backfired. John Kerry said it best in 2013, when he said, “This little thing called the Internet [...] makes it much harder to govern.”
So, even if the CIA was involved at some level in the creation of bitcoin, it was the biggest mistake they could have ever made. And now that it is running live, it is impossible to stop it without turning off the internet entirely.
Even though I’ve been pleading with you to buy into bitcoin since it was $3 in 2011 I still get people, on every article or video on bitcoin that I do, saying things like:
And, when I first did a video on Steemit nine months ago talking about how it was a genius concept that paid people to write articles on the site, there were comments like this:
I keep trying to help these fluoridated, government school graduates. Been trying since bitcoin was $3 in 2011. You could have even just bought Steem after I said to look into it yesterday at $0.50 and already have doubled your money.
I’m even offering a big discount to get our book Bitcoin Basics and our newsletter where we regularly make calls that make our subscribers thousands of percent - which you can get here.
Or, just keep posting stupid comments… we actually like to read them and laugh at them sometimes when we are getting bored of counting all our money.
