Governments and central banks are stronger than before. The system becomes more fragile and dangerous. And that’s exactly when it makes sense to buy bitcoin. Bitcoin is a hedge against the system.
Covid-19, the new coronavirus hit us much harder than the mortgage market collapse and subsequent financial dominoes in 2008. And governments and central banks have taken more drastic measures to support the economy. The borders were closed, citizens are being surveilled, companies are being nationalized, money is being given out, central banks are pumping liquidity into banks, and they are buying up everything they see.

That’s when the idea of this article was conceived – to share my knowledge and opinion on how and where to buy cryptocurrencies?
I am doing this to bring home the message that buying cryptocurrencies is way easier in 2018 than it was in the years gone by. And this is precisely why there are so many options. If one option doesn’t work, you can always switch to another one.
Six years ago, a single-board computer came on the market and changed the game for tinkerers and DIYers. The Raspberry Pi is a dream machine for all kinds of projects—gaming consoles, home streaming, VPN servers, and beyond—but the first step is gathering up your supplies and learning the basics. If you’re building something with the Pi, start here.
So far, typical sex industry businesses like London’s 23 Paul Street strip club, said in June the venue stopped accepting bitcoin because customers simply weren’t paying with it. But the lightning network, a layer on top of bitcoin used for faster transactions with lower fees, may now be ready to facilitate broader payments for online platforms.
Bitcoin Price Will Be Golden in 2020 Thanks to Limited Supply, Increasing Use: Bloomberg Report
Increasing global uncertainties and a weak dollar will likely push more investors into bitcoin as it becomes recognized as a store of value. The cryptocurrency’s fixed supply will further drive price increases throughout the year, Bloomberg analysts predict.
Bloomberg’s 2020 crypto outlook report, published Monday, predicts bitcoin’s price could move to the top of its 2019 range and retest the $14,000 high at a time when a weak dollar and stock market volatility continue and geopolitical tensions increase.

A vibrator that can be controlled through a mobile app is a finalist for CES 2020’s Last Gadget Standing award.
This year marks the first time sex technology products can qualify for awards or be showcased as part of the health and wellness category during the tech-focused trade show, which runs Jan. 7 to 10 in Las Vegas and is sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association.
The smart vibrator, created by Oakland, Calif.-based startup Lioness, may look like a basic sex toy but it bills itself as the first vibrator to use data — its patented biofeedback technology — to improve the user’s experience. It also said it’s the first vibrator company to have public ads at bus stops across San Francisco.
Do you want money YOU can send instantaneously to anyone, anywhere in the world? Here’s how you can do so.
Bitcoin is the future of money, they say. And we’re not doubting that. But, while the Bitcoin network is great at making large payments that don’t need to be settled quickly, it’s too expensive for making everyday, small payments.
Enter the Lightning Network: a second-layer solution built on top of the Bitcoin network that allows anyone to send bitcoin to each other instantly, for near-zero fees. But to use Lightning, you need to have a Lightning node. And sure, you could use a custodial solution to connect to the network, where somebody else makes the Lightning payment on your behalf. You could put your trust in third-party manufacturers and buy a ready-made Lightning node like the Casa Node. But what’s the fun in that?
There’s a much better way—for your self-sovereignity and your budget.
After Google removed Ethereum-based decentralized application (DApp) browser MetaMask from its Android application store, Apple may now force Coinbase to remove the DApp browser feature from its crypto wallet application.
According to a Reddit post published on Dec. 28, United States-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase warned its users that in order to comply with Apple’s mobile App Store policy, it might be forced to remove the DApp browser feature from its wallet application. Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong commented on the post:
“Coinbase CEO here. This is really unfortunate to see. Apple seems to be eliminating usage of Dapps from the App Store. […] Presumably this would extend to other wallets as well (Trust, Argent, Metamask) it’s beyond Coinbase and IMO a very big threat to the ecosystem.”
Consumers have been slow to purchase VR headsets, largely due to price and limited content. But several start-ups are making devices that will give people a whiff of the virtual world.
Smell-O-Vision was introduced at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York City. Created by a Swiss inventor named Hans Laube, it piped a variety of scents through a network of tiny tubes to individual seats in a movie theater. Needless to say, Smell-O-Vision wafted into oblivion.
