Modified Crypto Update March 9th 2021

Modified News by Slightly Modified


In this article we are going to go over a few topics However I would go read the full articles as I am not a journalist nor a financial advisor. I am just notating as I read articles and turning said notes into a blog post. 

To start if BTC-USD drops around $47k today I’m going to buy on the dip a bit. I should have over the last week but had other finances in the way. 

I’m wondering If I should hold my Celo CGLD and Compound COMP coins or trade in for something more rewarding like Tezos, DAI, or Algorand

BTC did drop to low $47k so I had to get a little more coin on the dip. Whether or not it takes over USD. I am now buying more as a stand against our meaningless printed dollar and hyper inflation. No matter your stands or beliefs WE are moving very quickly to a new standard and I don’t want to be the one standing there asking myself what happened. 

I also ended up trading some of my Celo and COMP for more Tezos and DAI as they seem to be more rewarding as of right now. I do like the concepts of Celo and Compound so I would like to keep a bit of a percentage in each, if not add a bit. However right now I am only using what I can afford to lose so here I am. 

while writing up this blog we have lift off and are currently ALL green on my portfolio and BTC is over $50k averaging around $54k not only that ETH is up and LTC is also up and doesn’t look like they are going down for a little bit. It’s nice to see some profit gains and I’m excited to ride this out and see how high it goes. Some are forecasting $100k for BTC. As for ETH it is only the beginning as 2.0 is debuting and some big news is going on for ETH in which we will cover in the next article however I could not resist but to update this portion of the blog post as I did a good dip buy and now can ride out some profiit.

What is Bitcoin?

“The World’s first widely-adopted cryptocurrency. Bitcoin allows for secure and decentralized digital money that people or entities can send to each other on the internet.”

Bitcoin was created by Satoshi Nakamoto, people question if he is real or not, but the person or team outlined the technology in a 2008 white paper

Unlike payment services like Venmo and Paypal that rely on financial systems permission to transfer money. Bitcoin is decentralized so there isn’t a need for a bank or financial service to transfer the money it is tracked on the blockchain, which is similar to a bank ledger. Where all transactions are record but the identities are kept encrypted and completely secure from decoding the identities of the transactions. 

Due to it’s decentralization and blockchain ledger being distributed across the entire network. No ONE company, country, or third party is in control of it. Even though social media has gained so much power that big names like elon musk and Goldman Sachs can manipulate the market just by one tweet but hey most people are getting even too smart for that.

What can bitcoin benefit or function as: 

  • An Investment
  • A Storable value similar to gold
  • A way to transfer value around the world 
  • Explore and emerging Technology

Bitcoin has money properties but it isn’t money it is digital since there is no physical version of it. If Gold was still the standard for the dollar it would be like this however inflation brought that out of existence. So I don’t really see the difference since most people have their dollars in a digital bank account. I can do the same. I can exchange my BTC to an ATM and collect any physical currency I chose so i think that statement these days is sort of invalid. 

“Anyone can view it, NO single entity controls it” – Coinbase 

Fun Fact: Attacking the Bitcoin blockchain would cost $4+ billion in hypothetical hardware costs alone. 

Coins are created through a process called mining termed “mining rigs” which now use far more processing power then they did back in 2017. Most miners are corporations. The mining process performs equations required to verify and record a new transaction, in which the miner gets a small percentage of the transaction, ensuring the accuracy of the ever-growing ledger. These mining rigs compete acrossed the world to be the first to solve a math problem. 

In Detail: 

Each person who joins the bitcoin network is issued a public key, a long string of characters, numbers & letters. When you buy bitcoin or send/receive it. You get a public key which you can think of as a key that unlocks virtual vaults (wallets) that gives you access to your assets. Anyone can use said public key to send you bitcoin but only the holder of the private key can access the vault or wallet.

Bitcoin Halving, What is it?



“Every four years, the amount of bitcoin awarded to miners is reduced by half, until all 21 million bitcoin have been virtually mined (probably around the year 2140). The halving mechanism helps make bitcoin a scarce, inflation-resistant resource.”

Coinbase Definition

Though Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies are digital money, it cannot be created infinitely. Scarcity and value have a direct coorelation. There will only ever be 21 Million Bitcoins and the amount of New Bitcoin added to the Network will be reduced by Half every four years this is part of a 2 concept protocol keeping an inflation-resistent asset.

In 2021, it will drop to around 3.125 new bitcoin added to the network every ten minutes. This process will continue until ALL bitcoincs are mined which is estimated to happen around the year 2140.

Why is Halving Important and How does it work?

Issuing less of anything analyzing and creating marketing supply and demand by creating fewer bitcoin over time is a great way to keep the value up and deviate from inflation. Rather an increase in value and decrease in supply will only create more market value and exand it’s buying power over time.

As it is compared to Gold and called a Digital Gold, it does differ that it can be sent as easy as sending an email or SMS text messsage. It’s known value and availability is known and acccessible to everyone. Gold is still found every day throwing unpredictable supply schedules, bitcoin is finite. Almost seems Gold is more valitile than bitcoin in some ways.

Important Takeaway:  It’s impossible for more bitcoin to be mined (when all has been claimed) to ever exist. This is far from how fiat currencies work as money is printed at the discretion of the governing officials or central bank, potentially leading to inflation.

“Dollarcost averaging (DCA) is an investment strategy in which an investor divides up the total amount to be invested across periodic purchases of a target asset in an effort to reduce the impact of volatility on the overall purchase.” – Investopedia
