Big time article in Wall Street journal today.

WSJ has a glowing interview/article with Balaji Srinivasan about the future of Bitcoin. Nothing about a bubble, nothing about frauds or scams. This is a tacit endorsement by the best financial paper in the world.

The paper describes bitcoin and the blockchain in general as the "internet of money" and describes how it is revolutionizing everything in finance. It goes on to describe how China is trying to manipulate bitcoin in order to facilitate their own currency tied to the renminbi, or to capture bitcoin for themselves. WSJ explains how china created the great firewall shortly after the internet was invented, and now they're trying to do the same with blockchains and crypto… China isn't banning bitcoin. They plan on regulating it themselves.

This is the most positive sign I have seen around bitcoin in a long time. Wall Street journal putting out a positive article about BTC is a huge progress.

Time to Buy……….

I have called the last 6 serious dips. Just look at my post history.Below I have listed each time. Do you know how I call these. It is so easy as you just have to see the FUD and how thick it gets. Same characters are always involved China, WSJ, CNBC and a army of new posters that spread some serious FUD on both reddit and bitcoin talk. Most posters are new and less than 1 month history on reddit, but they come in droves.

Here it is for the newbies once again and you need to hammer this in your brain. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH BITCOIN SUPPLY. 16.5 million outstanding and 4-5 million lost through bad passwords and failed hard drives. 2.5-3 million held by the original people like Satoshi ( I am convinced it is the deceased Hal Finney), Craig Wright ect. 4-5 million coins held by Hodlers. It leaves only 5-6 million coins between 20+ major exchanges and the entire WORLD. I keep seeing all this TA, but this is not a stock. The people that sell are going to regret it again, and again. If you are in over your head and need it for bills you should have never bought this. This is when the weak hands get slaughtered.

I just bought some more at 3915 and keeping another chunk for 3500-3600 range which not sure if it will hit. Take advantage of the FUD.

Also I really hope China finally bans it outright. they will soon realize you can't ban a decentralized network. They should also ban mining while they are at it. This will be the best news in a long time. I really have a hard time believing China capital outflow theory. There is something else going on, and it could actually be a group of people in China are making major $ $ $ through the buy/ FOMO / sell / short /FUD / cover / buy. Why else would the second largest economy in the world go after something over and over for the last 4 years. Bitcoin will be so much stronger without these people just like when we split from the big blockers.

In addition look at all the new tech headed are way. Lightning network, MAST, Schnorr Signatures, and on and on.

Upvote me if you have conviction here !!

Bitcoin

I have found I stay w in my budget and acquire more BTC by simply asking myself before I buy anything is “Would I rather have ‘this’ or buy more BTC”. BTC always wins out. Give it a try the next time you think of buying something.
