Wikileaks Mocking US Government Over Bitcoin Shows Why There Is No Stopping Bitcoin

Wikileaks Mocking US Government Over Bitcoin Shows Why There Is No Stopping Bitcoin

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
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

Bitcoin Powers Through To New Highs Near $6,000 While Jamie Demon Just Can’t Keep His Mouth Shut

Bitcoin Powers Through To New Highs Near $6,000 While Jamie Demon Just Can’t Keep His Mouth Shut

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
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 Hits New All-Time High Above $5,000 As Lagarde Concedes Defeat and Jamie Demon Shuts Up

Bitcoin Hits New All-Time High Above $5,000 As Lagarde Concedes Defeat and Jamie Demon Shuts Up

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
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…

The PullBack Is Over (For Now): Cryptocurrencies Gain $28 Billion & Nearly A 50% Gain In The Last 48 Hours

The PullBack Is Over (For Now): Cryptocurrencies Gain $28 Billion & Nearly A 50% Gain In The Last 48 Hours

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
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

Janet Yellen Stars In A Mainstream Media Advertisement For Bitcoin

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
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

Cryptocurrency Bloodbath! Sell Everything We Were Totally Wrong!

Cryptocurrency Bloodbath! Sell Everything We Were Totally Wrong!

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
Just kidding. The cryptocurrencies have taken a big hit in the last few weeks, however, just as we said they would. On June 11th, bitcoin stuck its nose just above $3,000 and is currently near $2,377 for a pullback of 20%. Ethereum, which I warned on numerous occasions had gone way too high, way too fast, touched $400 on June 13th and fell below $200 this morning. On June 26th I wrote, “Vitalik Buterin Death Hoax Brings To Light Risks In Ethereum”. In that article I said how we had been telling subscribers to take profits on all cryptocurrencies, especially the altcoins, and Ethereum. Another call that turned out to be very prescient. The total market cap of all cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, hit a high of $112 billion on June 11th and is currently near $82 billion

“That Guy’s” Response to Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad/Poor Dad on Anarcho-Capitalism

“That Guy’s” Response to Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad/Poor Dad on Anarcho-Capitalism

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
I recently ran into Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad, and had heard him say many anarchist sounding things so thought I would ask him if he was an anarchist. I detailed what happened next here, “Is Robert Kiyosaki of Rich Dad/Poor Dad MK Ultra Mind Controlled or Just Having a Nervous Breakdown?” Yesterday, he responded to what happened with, “Why I Flipped Out on the Guy Who Called Me an Anarchist.” He never actually referred to me by name. Only calling me “that guy” who is a “semi-celebrity”. But, his response begins, "During the event, I was approached by a stranger who asked me if I was an anarchist. I informed him I wasn’t, but he kept pressing the issue, eventually pushing me to the point of extreme irritation. Turns out the man is a semi-celebrity i

The War On Cash: Australia Considering Chipping Senior’s Money To Stop Them From Saving

The War On Cash: Australia Considering Chipping Senior’s Money To Stop Them From Saving

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
Ten years ago I wrote on my personal travel blog, “Australia sucks”. In it I detailed, “Australia seems to have more rules than any other country on the planet I have visited. There are signs outlining rules everywhere. I was even on a street that had a street-sign denoting that particular street as being an alcohol-free street. No alcohol is allowed to be consumed or even carried on that street?? I presume that even includes inside the houses on that street by the way it was written!” I haven’t been back to Australia for years for this exact reason. It is one of the most oppressive countries in the world. So, it actually comes as no surprise to hear that the Australian government is considering putting tiny identification chips in its $100 bills to track them and to stop people

Bitcoin and Anarchy in Mexico – Jeff Berwick on The Keiser Report

Bitcoin and Anarchy in Mexico – Jeff Berwick on The Keiser Report

THE DOLLAR VIGILANTE
I was recently in Mexico City with Max Keiser of The Keiser Report on RT talking about a wide range of topics including bitcoin, anarchy and how they may end up being the two things which help the world retake the freedoms taken from them by central banks and government. We spoke about how bitcoin came about in 2009 right at the peak of the last financial crisis as almost a gift from God. I talked about how well the Mexican economy is doing compared to the US’ in addition to how difficult it is to do business in the US because of the massive number of regulations and taxation. I said one of the reasons why I personally love Mexico is that the population is generally anti-government. We also talked about things like the differences between the Mexican and US economies
