I'm officially calling this International Bitcoin Week. Because it seems almost everyone has come out with their opinion on it. In 2014, when asked about bitcoin, legendary investor Warren Buffett said, "Stay away from it. It's a mirage, basically." Back then he said, "It's a method of transmitting money. It's a very effective way of transmitting money and you can do it anonymously and all that. A check is a way of transmitting money, too. Are checks worth a whole lot of money just because they can transmit money? Are money orders? You can transmit money by money orders. People do it. I hope bitcoin becomes a better way of doing it, but you can replicate it a bunch of different ways and it will be. The idea that it has some huge intrinsic value is just a joke in my view." No, W...
Bitcoin rose more than 6% today to surpass, for the first time ever, the $6,000 US mark. More interestingly, bitcoin just surpassed $100 billion in total market capitalization. Or, as Coindesk puts it, $0.1 trillion.Yes, we are now quantifying bitcoin in the trillions. When we start talking in the trillions we are beginning to talk about a shift in the financial and monetary system. And, as I pointed out recently, bitcoin is still but a glimmer in the all-seeing eye, so to speak, of the overall monetary picture. If bitcoin is truly on its way (and it’ll still be years if so) to becoming a widely used currency, then its upside is still massive.And, while one of bitcoin’s most valuable assets is its hard cap limit of 21 million bitcoins t

As I write, bitcoin is currently yet again at an all-time high, now over $5,800 with a $97 billion market cap. And the cryptocurrency space as a sector is on the cusp of an all-time high as well, sitting at $177 billion, just shy of the $178 billion high hit six weeks ago. People who are against bitcoin - and why in the world would you be against a free market money unless you are an immoral statist or a paid government troll? - like to make themselves feel better about missing out on the biggest thing since the internet by saying, “The government will shut it down!”First, if you really believe the government will do that AND you are not doing everything within your power to end government then you are a pathetic slave of epic proportions. But, there really
The Berwick Champagne curse has been broken. Every time in the past I posted a photo of me with a champagne bottle after bitcoin had hit a new all-time high, it “crashed”. Or, at least it went down quite a bit before quickly retaking new highs. Not this time, though! Shortly after posting that bitcoin had surged through $5,000 yesterday it continued on to hit a high over $5,700. Combined with Bitcoin Cash, which I swear I’ll stop mentioning soon, it reached a total high of over $6,000 for those holding bitcoin since August 1st, when it was at $2,700.Meanwhile, Jamie Demon of JPMorgan, who said he’d never talk about bitcoin again only a day ago had more to say on it today! A lot! According to Zero Hedge, these were today’s comments from Jamie Demon: "P
Bitcoin has just soared through $5,000 USD for the first time ever topping its old high of $4,950.72 on September 1st. It rose over $500, or 10%, today to hit a high of $5,341. Combined with Bitcoin Cash it now sits near $5,700.This isn’t an all-time high for the cryptocurrency space as a whole, though, as it hit a high of nearly $180 billion on September 1st and currently stands at just over $160 billion. That may be due, partially, to people moving back into bitcoin prior to the next big fork in November.Bitcoin has been gaining back market dominance against the rest of the cryptocurrencies since June and again claims more than 50% share of the entire market. While bitcoin is still small in the grand scheme of things no one can avoid having to comment on it…
So much for the cryptocurrency correction. Two days ago when bitcoin hit nearly $1,800 and the market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies nearly touched $60 billion, I wrote in my article entitled, “Coinpocalypse”, “I am now thinking it has dropped enough to start wading back in.” And, it appears I nailed it almost down to the minute. As soon as that article went live, the cryptocurrencies began staging a comeback. And they continue to do so as we speak. The total market capitalization of all cryptocurrencies increased from $60 billion to currently $88 billion for a nearly 50% gain in just the last 48 hours. Bitcoin is up over 10% in the last 24 hours while Ethereum has skyrocketed 38% and all major cryptocurrencies are heavily in the green. Of course, in the midst of the pu

When we started The Dollar Vigilante in 2010, it was a very different world. The word “libertarianism” was just becoming known for the first time due to the efforts of a guy named Ron Paul and his rEVOLution. Anarcho-capitalism was still essentially unknown by most. We believed that taxation was theft but trying to find more than a few dozen other people who felt the same was not happening. Many people still hadn’t woken up to 9/11 being an inside job. And, not even we knew about bitcoin back then… only hearing about it in 2011 when it was at $3 and immediately jumping on the bandwagon as perhaps its loudest promoter. So, what a nice surprise it is to see how quickly things are changing. The hashtag #TaxationIsTheft caught fire in the last year. And then this man m
