    Default Cryptocurrency: which alt-coins are the globalist corporations backing and why?

    With the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies recently it seemed like a good time to take my cryptocurrency portfolio a little more seriously. This thread will be for the deep dive research I’m doing behind various cryptocurrencies on the market, with the goal of making solid long term investments. If anyones thinking of getting into the crypto market, consider this a basic guide on how to get started. Although this isn’t investment advice, I’m just sharing the various plays I plan on making. Please do your own due diligence and if you plan on playing the crypto casino, only invest what you’re prepared to lose as all of this could easily come crashing down at some point and you’d be left with nothing. With that caveat out the way, lets begin…

    Bitcoin has surged to $40,000 dollars recently and I’m putting it down to 3-4 main factors.
    • The announcement back in October 2020 that Paypal was going to integrate Bitcoin and crypto spending in their online wallet (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-54630283). This was inevitably going to drive prices up, just through simple supply and demand, once this opens up fully to the general public. The forbes article from June 2020 stating Bitcoin could reach $300,000 is entirely within the realm of possibility (https://www.forbes.com/sites/billyba...h=72bd8b0152c6). Although a more conservative estimate in a Bridgewater sensitivity report estimated that if 50% of the markets gold reserves moved into Bitcoin, the price of Bitcoin could reach $85,000, which is probably more realistic.
    • Bitcoin had been steadily climbing in price since the October article above was published. The 2 days following the US election however, Bitcoin saw a sudden bump in price of $1500 and has been climbing rapidly ever since. The biggest increases coincide with censorship crackdowns as more people are seeking alternatives to the standard ways of conducting themselves and their business online. People flocking to gab.com after the twitter purge probably saw a dramatic increases in Bitcoin prices as paying in Bitcoin is one of the only ways to pay for a Gab pro account.
    • Buying and spending cryptocurrencies on physical goods has become easier than setting up a new bank account. More and more companies are issuing their own crypto debit cards backed by VISA that enable you to purchase products online without first having to withdraw your funds back into fiat currency. https://monolith.xyz allows you to keep control of your own private keys, and the funds that go in it—while still using their card to buy on the VISA network, which means you don’t have to leave your money in the hands of a private company that could cut you off from your funds for any transgression of their cancel culture politics. bitpay.com is soon to announce their first debit card while already allowing bitcoin to be transferred directly into Amazon gift cards.
    • Certain alt-coins allow you to generate savings income when you ‘stake’ them. Cardano (https://cardano.org) is one of the popular coins at the minute which when staked earns roughly 4-5% APY. Algo (https://www.algorand.com) earns 7% APY. Cosmos (https://cosmos.network) earns 9% as of writing. Staking these coins is as simple as pushing a button. Then there's the recent creation of the futures trading market built on the Ethereum infrastructure enabling margin and futures trading of alt-coins to be conducted the same way you'd trade on the forex market.
    My personal wallet of choice for my crypto portfolio is exodus.io (https://www.exodus.io). It’s an easy and simple interface with educative videos under each crypto coin to describe some of the technology and goals of what those particular companies are attempting to create. For those of you based in America you can purchase Bitcoin directly in the Exodus app with your ApplePay and then effortlessly exchange those Bitcoin into a huge variety of other alt-coins. For those outside of America, like me, it won’t process ApplePay purchases directly in the app, so, I first have to purchase Litecoin from Coinbase.com then transfer it to my Exodus wallet. I buy Litecoin because it has one of the lower transaction fees when transferring between wallets compared to Bitcoin (which can be excessively expensive). It’s also quicker to transfer, Litecoin can show up in the exodus wallet almost instantly whereas Bitcoin can take up to 30 mins.

    With the basics of where to acquire cryptocurrencies and what to do with them once you’ve got them out of the way, lets look at which particular cryptocurrencies have the potential to be a good long term investment. It should be noted I’m not looking to profit from the volatility of crypto coins, I’m not day trading for rapid profits, I’m more looking for those coins where you can invest a minimal $100 today and then maybe 5-10-15 years down the road that $100 might be worth $10,000. Finding the right coins for that goal means backing the technologies behind the coins that will eventually be adopted en-masse and become a crucial part of the Blockchain global infrastructure. While decentralised people powered coins could be a good investment, finding the coins that are backed by the big globalist companies seems like a more secure way to invest whatever pennies you’re prepared to invest in the crypto field. The same way a secure hedge fund would invest in the established behemoths of traditional brokerage accounts like ‘unilever’, ‘boeing’, ‘microsoft’, ‘Amazon’ etc.

    So what coins are the top globalist firms investing into and why?

    We’ll start with one of the most pervasive globalist companies most people have never heard of, a company deeply invested in the blockchain space and a company who already process 80% of all credit card transactions worldwide, the rebranded Thomson-Marconi French firm, Thales Group.

    https://www.thalesgroup.com/en/worldwide/activities



    As the old Thomson-Marconi name might suggest, Thales is one of those companies whose expertise is in secure communications systems, which means they have a vested interest in ensuring the success of the particular crypto-currency technologies that are necessary to build out the cyberspace infrastructure that enables them to achieve their company goals.

    What are their company goals? Ever heard of 'The Internet of Things'? Smart cities? Artificial intelligence? Deep space exploration? Battleship communications systems and railway signalling, among other things. Thales is a true megacorp with eyes on building the infrastructure of the future.

    Its a safe bet that whatever cryptocurrencies Thales Group are backing and investing in are going to have a huge importance in the cyberspace infrastructure that we see being built out over the next 10-20 years. So, in Thales own words, what crypto assets and companies should we be paying close attention to moving forward:

    https://cpl.thalesgroup.com/encryption/blockchain

    Quote Thales Blockchain Partners
    Thales has partnered with industry-leading blockchain and cryptocurrency partners to provide enterprise-grade solutions for securing transactions. Together with partners such as Ledger, BitGo, and Symbiont, Thales is protecting the way industries are conducting business, bringing efficiency and establishing trust. Thales also supports multiple blockchain applications including Bitcoin, Hyperledger, Ethereum, Altcoins, Monero, and more.
    First a quick look at the companies Thales has partnered with, starting with Symbiont.

    https://www.symbiont.io



    Lots of notable and highly influential financial institutions seem to be engaged in the blockchain infrastructure projects.

    The other company BitGo:

    https://www.bitgo.com

    Quote About BitGo
    BitGo’s mission is to make digital currencies usable for businesses in a regulated economy. BitGo’s technology solves the most difficult security, compliance and architectural problems associated with blockchains, enabling businesses to integrate digital currencies into their existing financial systems. Processing more than $1B monthly, BitGo customers include the largest cryptocurrency exchanges and application providers in the world. Headquartered in Palo Alto, the company was founded in 2013 by veterans in online security and financial technology.
    "BitGo customers include the largest cryptocurrency exchanges and application providers in the world." So what exactly are the coins being traded by the largest institutional cryptocurrency markets?

    I created an account an BitGo to find out...here's the list of coins they have available.






    Considering BitGo have been in business since 2013 and received their authority to act as a bank in 2018, there offering list of 15 secured cryptocurrencies--out of the thousands currently on offer--is actually a rather conservative portfolio. This is great for us since it helps us narrow down on what could be hugely profitable investments. And while many of those coins are already established in the alt-coin market, there's also several that are as yet largely undiscovered by the masses and trading for less than a dollar. It's these less than a dollar crypto that can be snapped up with a modest investment for huge potential growth, as Thales and their associates continue to build out the cyberspace infrastructure of the future.

    As of writing their current values are:
    Bitcoin ($43908.90)
    Etheruem ($1750.97)
    Litecoin ($164.35)
    Bitcoin Cash ($474.88)
    Bitcoin Gold ($12.8868)
    CeloGold ($3.40)
    Bitcoin Sv ($188.05)
    Dash ($188.05)
    Tron ($0.0378)
    EoS ($3.55)
    Zcash ($95.93)
    Stellar ($0.397779)
    Ripple ($0.446355)
    Algorand ($0.9050)
    Mainnet Hedera HBar ($0.09832)
    In the next post we'll take a closer look at the technology behind the 4 emboldened alt-coins in the above list to ensure these coins have the potential for longterm growth and investment. We'll also look at the Monero coin, which Thales is investing in yet doesn't show up on BitGo's ledger system, and speculate on a couple reasons why that might be.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Hedera Hbar: technological innovation = The Internet of Things
    Algorand: technological innovation = stable coins and frictionless international finance.
    Monero: innovation = Privacy coin (encrypts digital transactions to move money anonymously on the dark web).

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    New to blockchain technology, watch this documentary to get caught up to speed:

    Thank you for your post.

    I did enjoy reading it.

    If you can navigate yourself through life as a ship does through the seas, then the crypto market will typically bless your perseverance and endeavour once the L-plates are off.

    Everything is easy when you know how. Crypto is no different. It just takes time and research to find the sweet spots if you are starting from a point without inside info or trusted guidance.

    The "big retail shops" and most smaller vendors on the dark web have all moved to accepting only Monero "XMR" for a while now.

    Although Coinbase and Robinhood don't allow you to purchase XMR the majority of actual liquidity in these currency comes from black market sales, which likely occur in the trillions per year. Liquidity gives value, or so I've been told?

    XMR also has a much more efficient "proof of work" codebase which means it has a brighter future than say bitcoin which will get bogged down confirm all the transactions eventually. I would assume monero "XMR" is the safest bet long term but I'm just a musician who likes to buy things on the free market provided by the dark web so don't take my word for it.

    The price of Monero is already at USD $155.68, might have missed the boat on that one, although I do hold some in my wallet. For those that aren’t familiar, Monero is a privacy coin. The reason I didn’t get into crypto sooner was due to Catherine Austin Fitts and Joseph Farrell conversation about cryptocurrency being a dream for the globalists to track everything you’re doing online and everything you purchase. Monero is the equivalent of online cash withdrawals, they can’t track where it goes once it leaves you’re account, which negates what Fitts and Farrell feared would happen. Although there is rumour the EU wants Monero delisted so we’ll see how that one plays out.

    Everything is gonna be slowly going up, but if you are looking for short term gains montero is probably not the best idea.
    Doge coin a big meme following right now but it's not likely to maintain at whatever peak it hits.

    Watch for drops in the price for Monero.
    Since people are actually using it everyday for big transactions it doesn't seem likely to ever lose all value like some of the alt coins have a chance of doing any moment really.

    I bought my first crypto yesterday. I went with XCM only because someone I have come to trust said the big ones were too closely tied to the stock market now. He has just moved most of his money to XCM. Does anyone know much about this little player put out by Coinmetro?

    https://go.coinmetro.com/markets

    First I’ve heard of them. Their interface looks pretty slick though, a step up from some of the other exchanges I’ve been signing up to over the weekend. Looks like they have a security token investment platform which could be a big draw.

    https://demo.coinmetro.com/security-token-platform

    The chance to demo their platform before signing up is also a great idea on their part. Seems like it could be a solid long term investment, especially at the price. You’d have to check other established exchanges token values to get an idea of how much the token value could go up by. The Binance coin is currently trading at $76.96 for example. If coin metro grow as large as Binance it could create a similar return.

    In other industry shaking news today, Elon Musk buys $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin and announces you’ll be able to use your Bitcoin to buy his Tesla cars. No wonder all the crypto markets have been on a bull run lately.

    With coinmetro do you actually own the coin?
    If you don't have your keys you don't own the coin.

    While there are advantages to using exchanges to buy there are also many disadvantages.

    I'm not familiar with coinmetro but with Robinhood, Coinbase and the other big names you are not actually purchasing cryptocurrency.

    In the event of that company being hacked or worldwide catastrophic events you will likely lose the money.

    The whole point of decentralized currency is to give power back to the people. By having a third party hold your coins for you it kinda defeats the whole purpose in my opponion.

    It is easier to lose your money due to user error when you actually own them. I would recommend playing with $10 in crypto for a week or three sending money back and forth to truly understand it before buying any large amount.

    Then be SURE to keep a hand written copy of your key in a few safe places like a safety deposit box or buried in nature somewhere.

    The way blockchain works means that even if the internet goes down for a few months once a few nodes are back online you will still have your money, the same can not be said for keeping your money with a bank or any exchange.

    If you don't have your keys you don't own your coin.

    This really only applies to people with significant amounts of money invested or those who care about ending our dependence on the system built by our rulers.

    That is the right choice, it's a LOT easier to make a mistake and lose money when you are doing it yourself.

    There is nobody that "runs" any of these coins, so no tech support etc...

    I personally have lost a couple wallets due to bring stupid. Didn't have too much money (a couple bucks) but the lesson is priceless.

    I also recently sent a bitcoin payment for a couple hundred bucks and chose a very low fee because I didn't understand how they worked.

    It took 5 days for the money to go through.

    I think it's inevitable in the next 5 years or so for bitcoin to hit at least $100,000 and the other coins usually follow do I'd say you made a good investment.

    I think it's pretty cool how these "meaningless" coins actually have value and what this says about "money" in general. I assume the mere existence of bitcoin has open many peoples eyes.

    I've just been reading up on a new crypto called 'Arrr', made by Pirate chain.


    It's particularly intereting to me, because it's main USP is the privacy aspect. See this link for info: https://pirate.black/about-pirate-chain/


    What with a large percentage of the world now moving to platforms that uphold privacy and free speech, the likelyhood of Arrr coins gaining significant value seems a given to me.


    It's current value is around $.08, so I bought $40 worth, which is 508 coins (roughly). So not much of an outlay, no stress involved, and i'll be looking on with interest to see what happens.


    Other coins I have are Bitcoin, XRP, and Ethereum.


    XRP I find intriguing too, because if the rumours of the supposed QFS are true, then apparently it will be the currency used in that system.

    If you don't have your keys you don't own the coin.

    While there are advantages to using exchanges to buy there are also many disadvantages.

    I'm not familiar with coinmetro but with Robinhood, Coinbase and the other big names you are not actually purchasing cryptocurrency.

    In the event of that company being hacked or worldwide catastrophic events you will likely lose the money.

    The whole point of decentralized currency is to give power back to the people. By having a third party hold your coins for you it kinda defeats the whole purpose in my opponion.

    It is easier to lose your money due to user error when you actually own them. I would recommend playing with $10 in crypto for a week or three sending money back and forth to truly understand it before buying any large amount.

    Then be SURE to keep a hand written copy of your key in a few safe places like a safety deposit box or buried in nature somewhere.

    The way blockchain works means that even if the internet goes down for a few months once a few nodes are back online you will still have your money, the same can not be said for keeping your money with a bank or any exchange.

    If you don't have your keys you don't own your coin.

    This really only applies to people with significant amounts of money invested or those who care about ending our dependence on the system built by our rulers.
    I just found this.... [Your XCM tokens can safely be stored in your CoinMetro account, but it is also possible to withdraw your XCM to any ERC-20 compatible wallet.] With full explanation here: https://coinmetro.com/blog/coinmetro...D-Imtvbqk2boXg

    So does that mean you actually can purchase the currency?

    It’d be safe in trezor wallet. A hardware wallet you own the private keys to.
    ERC-20 Wallets

    Hardware Wallets

    Most users prefer to use hardware wallets. A hardware wallet is the most secure storage unit for cryptocurrency. There are several expensive and inexpensive hardware wallets on the market. Here are a few which support the ERC-20 token:
    Trezor
    Trezor is one of the most popular hardware wallets and costs only $99 USD. It is a cold storage device meaning it is always offline. Trezor can be used for Ethereum and any ERC-20 affiliated tokens with the MyEtherWallet web interface. Trezor is a small, key-shaped device and connects to a computer through a USB cable. It requires a pin code to access the device but also has a recovery 24-word seed which is created offline in case of loss or theft. Trezor supports many other cryptocurrencies as well, so it can serve its purpose for multiple uses.

    Thanks Jayke, it's good to know about this in case i get really into this. But right now it costs more than the amount of currency I have.

    A software wallet is probably best when first starting out. MyEtherWallet seems to be compatible and you keep the private keys encrypted on your desktop or mobile app. Although haven’t used this one myself yet so can’t vouch for its ease of use. Ethereum tokens are hugely popular right now due to their staking options but I personally find the Ethereum network to be just as clunky and cumbersome as Bitcoin. Some of the blockchain 3.0 technology coins are so much smoother and easier to use in comparison.

    Some software companies are already dropping the Ethereum network in favour of Hashgraph, which we’ll take a closer look at next.

    I've never been able to get myself to trust a hardware wallet enough to dump everything in there. I know it's the "recommended" approach, especially for newbs and it's true it's probably the best thing if you don't know what you're doing. I just found the whole idea of a H/W wallet the perfect honeypot for global scale heists. For example it needs to interact with a website to do anything. It's supposed to never release the private keys and only send a signed message but who knows wtf it's doing during that interaction. Chain of custody - some scam in the Amazon warehouse swaps real ones for hacked ones before it gets to you ? All that type of stuff put me off quite a bit.

    The first coin from the list in the OP I’d like to look at is Hashgraph with its Hedera HBar. This is still one of the cheapest tokens to buy at around 10cents per token, yet it has some major companies backing it. The most notable being, found on their website here. The speed of blockchain 3.0 technology and the high transaction volume is going to be essential for 'The Internet of Things' where every device is talking to every other device, which is probably why Hedera HBar has so many of the megacorps backing it already at this early stage of its development.






    IBM helped to co-author one of the whitepapers for this blockchain algorithm.


    there's also some 40 case studies on their website showing how hedera is already being used and adopted by various industries to power their organisations and business models. From farmers, healthcare, finance, musical enterprises, payment systems, the chopra foundation. Mass adoption of blockchain 3.0 is already taking shape.

    Good interview with Hedera CEO, Mance Harmon.
    Hedera Hashgraph - The Most Important Crypto Update You’ll See This Year (HBAR)

    We’ve received many questions lately about Mike’s opinion on Hedera Hashgraph, a promising alternative to blockchain consensus systems which was covered in Episode 8 of Hidden Secrets of Money back in 2017. So we arranged an update with none other than Hedera Co Founder and CEO - Mance Harmon. This is an amazing interview, be sure to stick with it until the end in order to understand the huge disruption that these new Distributed Ledger Technologies are bringing at an ever increasing pace. As Mike says, “Whether you’re interested in cryptocurrencies or not, the reason you want to watch this is because Distributed Ledger Technology is already affecting our lives in major ways, and it’s going to affect you life more, and more, and more as we go forward.”

    Next up... Algorand. This is my new favourite for purchasing in Coinbase before transferring to Exodus wallet. Another blockchain 3.0 that makes Bitcoin and Ethereum feel like they were built in the Stone Age. The funds show up instantly and the fees are negligible. At just under $1 per Algo, this is a great one to hold longterm as it currently offers 5.8% APY on investment.

    This video review below highlights some of the reasons why this could be a strong and important coin in the future.

    As the video review explains, Algos founder MIT professor Silvio Micali was the winner of the Turing award for computer science in 2012. Silvio explains the innovative 1st layer smart contract system Algo is based on in the video below:

    What is Algorand?

    Algorand is a high-performance next-generation blockchain whose goal is to create a transparent system in which everyone can achieve success through decentralized projects and applications. Many have called this project “Blockchain 3.0”, as it solves Bitcoin’s well-known scalability problems whilst maintaining security and decentralization. Algorand has the native token $ALGO, which will be used as a transfer of value on the network. In terms of technology backbone, Algorand uses a Pure Proof of Stake (PPOs) and pseudorandom functions to prevent malicious attackers from colluding on the network.

    Algorand stands out from other high-performance blockchains by the credibility of its founder, MIT professor Silvio Micali. Professor Micali has is the recipient of the prestigious Turing Award for computer science and many of his inventions have directly impacted the cryptocurrency scene.
