I wrote this article two days ago, when bitcoin’s price was $36,000, in the middle of a parabolic move that started at $9,800.  At that time, the total cryptocurrency market cap had just crossed $1 trillion dollars. Everybody was talking about a $100...

13 Jan 2021 2 minute read 0 comments MarkHelfman

Did you see the CNN headline? “Bitcoin plunges more than 20% in three days. It’s now in a bear market“ Uh huh. Chalk it up to an editor mistaking “bear” for “bull.” At least I hope so. People have started shouting “bull market” for only the past few...

With bitcoin hitting all-time highs for the first time in years, you may think it’s getting big. Huge, even. Wall Street luminaries like Paul Tudor Jones and Jamie Dimon are telling people to buy it. Long-time skeptics like Nouriel Roubini begrudging...

Wall Street is About to Take Your Bitcoin

4 Dec 2020 3 minute read 2 comments MarkHelfman

I know a few people in finance. None of them fear cryptocurrency, even though the technology will make them obsolete. Some plan to get out with what they can before cryptos take over. Most want to hop on the train before it leaves the station. More a...

Bitcoin Won the U.S. Presidential Election

29 Nov 2020 3 minute read 23 comments MarkHelfman

You may think the U.S. presidential election is under dispute. It’s not. The president’s team claims fraud and tweets all sorts of evidence, but they don’t present any of that evidence in court. Even their “independent advisors” found no fraud. I sus...

Ponzi, fraud, and rat poison squared. Those are three terms you may have heard people use when talking about bitcoin. If you’re in that camp, you have good company. Pretty much everybody hates bitcoin. Guess what? Bitcoin will succeed anyway. Yes, yo...
