If you haven’t used the Bisq exchange (decentralized) you should give it a try

I recently downloaded the software and I have been very impressed so far. It is quite easy to install and setup.

Now that localbitcoins.com requires ID, this is the easiest way to buy bitcoin anonymously. It's also much less scammy.

Decentralized exchanges are the only way to prevent governments shutdowns and interference. Think BitTorrent for buying and selling Bitcoin.

I highly recommend trying out a small order so that you are familiar with how things work. The volume is quite low at the moment so this would help the network grow.

I am not affiliated with bisq in any way. Just trying to spread awareness that it's out there and that it works great.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Exactly 5 years ago Wired wrote “The world’s most popular digital currency really is nothing more than an abstraction. So we’re destroying the private key used by our Bitcon wallet.” The loss is currently worth $124,453.58

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Guy on CNBC says $100USD bill is used for far more illicit activity than bitcoin.

In house guy on bitcoin claims to have investments in many different cryptocurrencies. Easily deflects question about illegal activity with bitcoin because obviously the USD is the most popular currency for crime.

He went on to discuss a decentralized internet on the blockchain which would inherently require a coin to function properly.

Then he did a bit of TA suggesting bitcoin will continue to rise after breaking above a short-term trendline.

Actually a really interesting discussion where all of the people are giving blockchain and cryptocurrencies some respect after starting the block with Buffett and Munger trashing it.

Try to find it on CNBC.com , I'll try to update this post with a link once it posted it just aired.
