We should be good to building up our stockpiles of stuff and learning new skills, gardening or whatever for the next 4-5 months. I have no idea why that economic collapses or war tend to happen in Spring or Fall but historically speaking it is true. While I would not trust history on average any economic collapse should happen in mid March through April and then late September through the end of November.
Preppers playing with BITCOIN. I have no problem with any speculating with any product. Honestly I wish I had got I had got in early with Bitcoin as I could have built up some bank and bought gold or silver. But I would have been gaming the system or following the latest fad. I think Bit coin has great potential as an alternative currency. But why would I trade one FIAT (make believe) currency for another make believe currency that is totally dependent on the internet staying up? The electrical system staying viable?
Bitcoin miners are literally have PCs crunching numbers/block chains to create more bit coins. They are not adding value to the economies of the world. They are not reducing debt in any significant way. To me Bit coin speculation is no more than the Tulip bubble of the late 1600’s. I have tulips in my garden and the colors of purple, red and yellow are great! You can’t eat tulips. Plus I can share the bulbs!
What is a Bit coin? What it is its value for buying something tangible. Now if you get some tangible value from trading digital electrons. Good on you!
