I made a decision of going into cryptocurrency even with the limited knowledge I was having then, was in mid-2018 after a friend of mine told me the importance of cryptocurrencies and bitcoins to the economy. I was afraid initially at but after I have seen several use cases I decided to buy 5BTC and I left it in my wallet expecting the price to rise like the previous year in some months’ time due to my how I understand the market but it never happened. I watched series of YouTube videos for beginners but still made mistakes and losses, while trying to trade. In fact, it became worse that the value of my coins drop down to the fact of me almost giving up on the cryptocurrency market and selling off but I hold on to my patience and did a little research on how I can earn profit with my coins. After an intensive research I found a beginners trading post talking about a strategy on how to trade and make profit so I decided to give it a try and I contacted the person in charge, Mr. Desmond Sydney. He took time to explain to me the different ways to make profit in this bearish market. I decided to give it a try and I invested 3 BTC of my coin, and it quickly rose to 9 BTC towards the end of December 2018, with the help of his signals in trading the bitcoins, ethereums and I was convinced that this is the best way to make a good profit from Trading. If you're still confused and don't know the step to take to profit in this new year I urge you to contact him via whatsapp / telegram On +447723506502 for all your cryptocurrency questions, strategy and beginners coaching and you will be glad you did...

If you can pay stuff with “Libra” because it will be a very popular Crypto ( stable coin) , then It can be used to buy another crypto (that promotes privacy and anonymity) , then transfer the funds to who ever you want , even a Criminal. He will then receive the crypto and change it back to libra, and thats the magic of crypto, when you enter the ecosystem, there are a tons of very ,very , very sofisticated tools to hide your money , your cryptowallet and your transactions, because crypto has no country. Libra will be the “bills” , bitcoin will be the gold. All thousands of other cryptos just need , one that becomes trusted , stable and mainstream. To be used as money. And that can be Libra. When this happens,other cryptos will boom and the crypto era will begin, the end of regular money will begin and it will be a very fast end.

FB's main priority(i think) is to give it's share holder's as high a revenue per annual as possible. So what ever it does, has(?) to do with making money! Given it's past history, and it's CEO, I couldn't and wouldn't trust it at all!

Dollar $, Euro €, GBP, Yen are back by nothing (gold standard canceled by President Nixon 1971). So, Facebook "Libra" is backed by Dollar $, Euro €, GBP, Yen. In conclusion Facebook Libra = backed by nothing !

Another company solving non existent problems in a solution-saturated market = ShiteCoin LiteCOin, Feathercoin etc 2011 (and 2017 BCH) called, they want their sales-pitch back! ......

.... They keep calling it Cryptocurrency and is far from a real crypto. Is a digital chucke cheese token ... Real cryptos are decentralized and could be mining ⛏ by anyone ... Facebook Libra will not have such profitable and democratic feature of mining operations, it will be a centralized mining operations. Just like a token , you convert your real hard earned cash 💵 into the Libra Tokens and pay with the tokens ...

At the end of the day it is a stablecoin like the others, but the differentiating factor for sure is that it is coming out of a very large company and has numerous powerful companies backing it in partnership. So those 2 points alone make me interested to see if it can or can not push it further than the other current stablecoins out there. On my YouTube ch I actually also teach everyone how to master everything blockchain so if anyone is interested check me out 👌

STOP TRYING TO REPLACE REAL MONEY!!! the problem here isn't that we need a new form of currency but rather a new form of quickly and expediently transferring money from one person to another. software can accomplish this not cryptocurrency. Here in NJ you can text a 6 digit number to get the bus schedule. You don't even need an app. So why can't I just text a numeric code that is linked to your bank account to send money? it seems to me that somebody went way out of their way to overcomplicate a problem just so they could create and even more complicated solution which ultimately makes them rich. there's no reason at all that our phones text message capabilities can't function like the checkbook of the 21st Century.

Digital Capital Management Chief Operating Officer Ben Ritchie puts it this way: “The rise in the price of Bitcoin on the surface appears to be a result of the release of positive news flowing from Consensus this year. However, there may be some additional underlying factors. These include the stability of Bitfinex and the USDT following their recent $850 million raise in 10 days, and Binance looking to buy back their BTC position following the hack of 7,074 BTC. There is also an increased use of algorithmic trading pushing volumes significantly higher and fueling confidence — and, with it, opportunity I came across a comment on CNBC channel about a certain man named Alfred Churchill who teach young and new traders how to increase their portfolio on the comments from different student convinced me to contact him which i did even if i was scared at first today i make 0.5 daily reach his personal email or hangout at (CHURCHILLALFRED8@gmail. com) or via TELEGRAM and Whatsapp+1(813) 421 4693

Oh? A centralized global digital currency that can be linked to a global social credit score, that’s managed by the largest corporations in the world, and that’s backed up by fiat currency, all while we are heading towards a borderless society? Sounds like 1984 to me! What could go wrong? 😃
