On August 11 MicroStrategy Incorporated issued a press release entitled:

MicroStrategy Adopts Bitcoin as Primary Treasury Reserve Asset

Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy Incorporated said 

Our investment in Bitcoin is part of our new capital allocation strategy, which seeks to maximize long-term value for our shareholders. This investment reflects our belief that Bitcoin, as the world’s most widely-adopted cryptocurrency, is a dependable store of value and an attractive investment asset with more long-term appreciation potential than holding cash. Since its inception over a decade ago, Bitcoin has emerged as a significant addition to the global financial system, with characteristics that are useful to both individuals and institutions. MicroStrategy has recognized Bitcoin as a legitimate investment asset that can be superior to cash and accordingly has made Bitcoin the principal holding in its treasury reserve strategy.

Is The Stacking Sats Era Coming To An End?

I think it was about December 2018, when things hit the bottom. This is one of my favourite Warren Buffet quotes:

Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful

It has been a hectic but funn 18 months, stacking those sats. Unfortunately the time for stacking Sats is quickly coming to a close my friends. 

  • Bitcoin faucets will become obsolete as the market value of Bitcoin rises, they will reach a point where they can't give out less than 1 sat
  • Brave Browser will lose some it's appeal as Brave Rewards get less and less as BAT 🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀🚀
  • sadly it will be time to move on from Publish0x, as the tips keep diminishing as their fait value increases

How long have we common folk got left before it becomes a rich mans game?

The End

Bought our 1st pieces of BTC, July 2017. The process was daunting and confusing. Could easily given up & put it in the too hard basket or have fallen victim to one of the many scams or pitfalls. Grateful to a friend of my son's, who had been in this space for awhile, giving me some good advice & steering me in the right direction. That experience has helped shape my desire to share what I learn. Also always had a morbid fascination with Snake Oil Salesman & their sales pitch; Bitconnect, USI Tech..
