“Money is the oldest social network and arguably the strongest.”

– Tyler Winklevoss, 2019

30 days and 30 nights… Back in 2017 when the price of Bitcoin (BTC) crossed $7,600 it only took 30 days to reach its all time highs of $20,000. Bitcoin just crossed $7,800. What will the price be 30 days from now?

Who’s up…

Finally Facebook… Facebook rolls back ban on cryptocurrency ads as it ramps up its own blockchain efforts. Facebook will no longer require pre-approval for ads related to blockchain technology, industry news, education or events related to cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin To $250k… Serial VC investor Tim Draper told FOX Business  in an interview on May 10, Bitcoin (BTC) will have a 5% market share of the entire world by 2023, a single coin would be worth $250,000. “I eventually want to have a fund where I take in bitcoin and I fund everybody in bitcoin and they pay their employees and suppliers in bitcoin and then I pay my investors in bitcoin,” he continued. Draper then stated: “Because I would then require no accounting, no legal, no bookkeeping, no custody — it would all be done.”

Open For Business… As of today, cryptocurrency is now accepted as payments at tens of thousands of merchants in the U.S. on the Flexa network. Top brands such as Whole Foods, Baskin Robbins, Lowe’s, and Nordstrom will now accept Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and Gemini Dollar.

Takeaways: Corporations can no longer ignore cryptocurrencies. They need to adapt or be left in the dust. Facebook has been a hypocrite in their support for crypto since they plan to create their own coin yet ban crypto advertising. Was it their plan to just suppress the competition? Tim Draper is just another person with their price prediction of Bitcoin.

…Who’s down

Binance… Binance, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges was hacked with a grand total of $41 million (7,000 BTC) being stolen. The security breach is the sixth largest exchange hack in crypto history. An analyst speculates that the hack had something to do with Binance’s lack of Segwit implementation.

Ban on Bitcoin… Congressman Brad Sherman, an outspoken critic of Bitcoin, is calling for a bill to ban all cryptocurrencies. The House Democrat from California says he’s looking to introduce legislation that will make it illegal for Americans to buy and sell crypto assets, an effort he believes will protect the country’s standing as a political and economic powerhouse.

Fool’s Gold… Peter Schiff, the stockbroker and financial commentator is well-known for his early warning market calls, particularly prior to the US mortgage crisis states “I don’t think bitcoin has anything in common with gold. I mean it tries to pretend to be gold, but I think it’s fool’s gold.” He doubles down by saying “bitcoin has no intrinsic value other than the fact that people are willing to buy it because they think they can sell it to somebody else at a higher price. That’s not money, that’s a Ponzi scheme.”

Takeaways: I have followed Peter Schiff for sometime now. He is a longtime gold supporter and investor. So it is in his best interest to bash any rival to gold. Click here to watch a great debate between Peter and the CEO of ShapeShift, Erik Voorhees. Binance hack came to a surprise being that it is one of the largest and respected exchanges in the world. Goes to show that you are better off storing crypto off exchanges. This weeks podcast explains proper ways to store crypto. Countries that ban bitcoin will open the opportunity to countries that support it.
