Robert Kraft — the billionaire owner of the New England Patriots — issued a formal apology after being arrested in a Florida prostitution sting. But why should the 77-year-old widower apologize? Because he paid for oral sex at a seedy massage parlor? Who cares? Robert Kraft: ‘I Am Truly Sorry’ “I am truly sorry,” Kraft said in a March 23 statement. “I know I have hurt and disappointed my family, my close friends, my co-workers, our fans and many others who rightfully hold me to a higher standard.” “I have extraordinary respect for women.

Max Keiser on Bitcoin Cynic Warren Buffett: ‘He’s a Complete Failure’

Appearing for an interview with BlockTV, Max Keiser explained why he thinks Warren Buffett has been throwing shade at the crypto community. Keiser did not hold back: I think he feels insecure. Without the bailouts of 2008, without the access to free money from central banks, without stock buybacks – that were up until recently illegal – Warren Buffett’s performance would be close to zero. Warren Buffett has trashed Bitcoin in particular and the budding crypto-economic sector in general, calling Bitcoin “rat poison squared” just last year, CCN reported. Buffet: ‘Aiding and Abetting Crime’? Keiser also suggested that Buffett’s investments

Bernie Sanders is Running for President. He’s the Only One Who Can Beat Trump

Bernie Sanders has officially launched his presidential campaign for 2020. The 77-year-old is now the Democratic front-runner and the only candidate who can realistically beat Donald Trump. Not only is he the most popular Senator in the country, but recent polls also show he would pip Donald Trump in a hypothetical election.  Beating Donald Trump is a huge motivator for Sanders’ 2020 run. The Vermont Senator branded Trump an “embarrassment.”  I'm running for president. I am asking you to join me today as part of an unprecedented and historic grassroots campaign that will begin with at least 1 million people

Ripple’s Brad Garlinghouse Explains Why He’s Not Scared of JP Morgan’s ‘Bank Cryptocurrency’

Three MIT students in their early 20s created a technology that could draft predictive responses to emails. In May 2018, they proceeded to raise funds for their startup – EasyEmail. Around the same time, Google held its annual conference in which it announced a feature similar to that of EasyEmail. The startup’s founder, Filip Twarowski, expressed his shock, fearing that competing with Google would scare off venture capitalists. The history of entrepreneurship is full of stories in which more prominent corporations try to squash young companies by copying them. Or, they acquire them completely to eliminate a threat. In the case

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Trump is great for Bitcoin. No one wants USD when the US is in a trade war and now he’s criticizing the Federal Reserve. Great for BTC!

If Trump gets re-elected in 2020 BTC is going to do very very well I think. I believe Trumps escalation of the trade wars will be very beneficial for BTC. BTC will thrive in chaos. Who needs BTC if there's no chaos? If there's no chaos then USD will be strong. I like to think of Bitcoin as the anti-USD because they are both competing for the world reserve currency of the future and Bitcoin has a much better chance at dethroning the USD than the USD has at keeping that position. Trump probably hates BTC because it does nothing for the US and he's a nationalist. In fact his trade war isn't just bad for the USD, but it's bad for every countries fiat currency involved which is fantastic news for crypto hodlers. People with a lot of fiat are looking for alternatives and they're likely to buy Bitcoin and Gold in my opinion.
