Webbot Antarctica predictions

Regarding webbot, accuracy of reports were declinging because of the sheer volume of propaganda that started to infest the web around Trumps election. Clif High no longer felt it ethical to continue selling reports as it was basically pure guesswork at this point.
However, many temporal markers from 3-4 year old reports are confirmed hits now(pedo bankers, bitcoin values, UK royals pedo scandal, china riots), this year, meaning the timeline was off by about 2 years from his estimate.
At this rate the predicted Antarctica events might happen in 2020-2021, as well as the Vatican raid, BTC to 100k $, and new energy source prediction.
The silver to 600$ prediction turned out to be the silver of cryptos, aka Litecoin, which did go to 600$ making many people very rich indeed.
Time will tell, but the number of correct predictions this year, in some cases 5-6 years after the prediction, does give me hope this sub might get the information we crave.
Edit with old post of mine giving a synopsis of the Webbot Antarctica predictions:
"The ALTA reports are destilled summaries in changes of pretty much the sum total of english language written openly on the web. Bot's trawl the web and look for trends in how humans choose their words. The idea behind the technology originated when the programmer Cliff High read about experiments at PEAR: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/10/science/10princeton.html
These experiments showed that a group of people shown a random stream of images would react in advance if the next picture in the reel was of a highly emotional nature, sex, torture, death and loss etc.
To give an example of how this works: If asked to describe the pictures free flow style they might describe a red apple somewhat strangely as a bloody apple, if the next picture in the stream was of for instance a bloody corpse, or a lovely rock, if the next picture was a mother and child showing affection. So, the assumption behind the technology is that people tend to subconsciously choose words that reflect FUTURE emotional states.
The bots are programmed to pick up such emotional words and the words associated with them and track changes in them. The bigger the impact of an event on human emotions, the longer in advance our language will reflect that future state.
And one of the biggest, longest standing sets of changes picked up by the bots... Concerns Antarctica.
Can sum up my perception of what the bots are saying for you all since I've read every webbot report and paid attention to this Antarctica stuff in them since early 2K. I will try to use as much of the actual web-bot source language as possible in writing this, so you guys can look for these phrases and words in the news in the future.
There's an ancient civilization under the ice. It's human, not alien. It's connected to the later Vedic/Indus Valley civilization. The Discovery as it will be called will push human history and civilization much further back in time, possibly as much as 500 000 years(for moderne humans, homo sapiens, not first civilization). They were at least medically and philosophically very advanced. There are also indications that there will be technology found that surpasses our own, but not because it would be beyond our capacity. This tech is "brand new", at an off angle to our own, a "never thought of new branch of science" for our current civilization. Words to describe it include "new electrics(Another major long standing set)" "Creeping electricity" "Time as energy" and "field dynamics".
Note: the same words also describe new technology coming from Mongolia, China, India and specifically new mathematics from Africa and Germany. So, there might be a mix up here where these two events, The Discovery and New Electrics/Math happen in the same timeframe.
We will find actual books presumably written in something like proto-sanskrit and be able to read their own words. Their philosophy will have a profound, deep and long lasting effect on humanity, discribed as giving us back our "self-confidence" and "positivity" just in time for a "challenge" "period of climate change", "economic turmoil", "Earth changes" and "Change" in general.
The new generation will embrace the "mindset" of these ancients in dealing with all this chaos, and launch huge projects to "Clean the ocean", "Cleanse the corrupt", invent "new monetary system" and... "Go to Mars".
Later more evidence of this civilization will be found in Ireland(visual descriptors such as "deep caves exposed by erosion in seaside cliffs" hints to this being an actual "liberary" or at least "store of documents" there is even descriptions of "long, deep stairs behind crumbling wall leads to chamber of books" which might reflect a future video or media published photo series fitting this description). Australia("caves exposed by major earthquake "adjacent to precious metal vein" "mining"), and India("cities under water off coast").
The Discovery will catalyze "major reformations" of several major religions, in particular the Abrahamic ones. Islam and Orthodox Judaism will be the most changed.
The Discovery will be the largest "economic driver" of the early 2020's, as artifacts, technology etc gives rise to something of a "gold rush". People will be so "desperate to see" this with their own eyes that they will "enlist in the military on the off chance that they will be posted to Antarctica".
Also, evidence will be found that ice ages can happen much more quickly than we have previously believed and these people who were possibly the ancestors of all of us(ponder the scientific implications here) were basically "flash frozen" like so many of the frozen mammoths in Siberia found with fresh flowers in their stomachs."
"The reports describe this process like cold air being drawn down from the upper atmosphere, almost at the space boundary. There's also descriptors for snowfall so thick you can't walk through it without collapsing under the weight, not the snow on the ground but the snow still in the air. 40 feet of snow in a single night. Glaciers growing daily until everything is swallowed. Crop failures, herds of animals frozen to solid in hours, starvation, pretty "doom" stuff.
This might reflect actual words from eyewitness reports of the Antarcticans, then translated and published for us to read.
It can also be that we will see this happen ourselves as the bots seems to think we are heading into a new ice age, rather than a warm period. However, due to how the bots work, it might all derive from our future emotional reaction to reading the words of the last men in Antarctica.
There is also sets pointing to the future South pole ice cap moving into the ocean off one side of the continent just like how the North pole works(ie floating sea ice with no land underneath) until the actual continent of Antarctica is ice free and starts "greening". Funny enough, people will see this on Google Earth. Start tracking the ice shelf from year to year people!" "

How to follow, study and keep up to date with the Ethereum project. This info or link might help with newbies or people you would like to send info to regarding what ethereum is.

Iv been asked to put together some info / links on the Ethereum Project by a few people lately that iv met or talked to and since its Sunday and i got a half day from work here it is:
I emailed them and then pasted it here so sorry if its a bit clumped together. Cant get the grasp of how reddit breaks up sentances 8-()
https://www.ethereum.org/ Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.
These apps run on a custom built blockchain, an enormously powerful shared global infrastructure that can move value around and represent the ownership of property. This enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middle man or counterparty risk.
The project was bootstraped via an ether pre-sale during August 2014 by fans all around the world. It is developed by the Ethereum Foundation, a Swiss nonprofit, with contributions from great minds across the globe.
Ethereum Blog: https://blog.ethereum.org/
Note: This is not investment advise, This email is just to show you what Ethereum is, what these 1000's of computer scientists, developers, programmers and hackers are building. A whole new internet run from millions of peoples computers all over the world to create the "Ethereum Virtual Machine" or world computer that 7 Billion people can log onto at the same time. It is censorship resistant, encrypted and the Ethereum Blockchain can not be hacked. This is going to change the world as we know it.
There is a built in currency called "Ether" or "ETH" and can be purchased from any of many exchanges listed below.
Note 2: ETC or Ethereum Classic is a smaller blockchain project that also uses the EVM (Ethereum Virtual Machine) and id advise to stay away from that project, it has not got the 1000's of developers building it like ETH does, it apparently has one or 2 developers that went their own way, The EVM can also run private and consortium blockchains that alot of big and small companies are building on for their inhouse private operations. Like a Intranet (intranet is a private network that is contained within an enterprise)
Its very hard to understand at first what exactly blockchain is so here are some videos that i think explains it well:

Ethereum and other blockchain project prices http://coinmarketcap.com/
There are many exchanges that trade Ether around the world http://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/ethereum/#markets
Some ones i have used are: www.kraken.com Accepts Euro, Dollar, GBP etc.. by SEPA or international bank transfer and you can buy Ether
www.poloniex.com (does not accept fiat but it is the largest volume for trading crypto pairs, I have used www.bitstamp.net in the UK to buy Bitcoin and then send them to Poloniex to swap for Ether )
www.yunbi.com A very good exchange based in China and have listed a few ethereum tokens, you need to swap through CNY (Chinese Yuan) but its easy and very good support.
www.bittrex.com No Fiat but also lists some Ethereum Based tokens
www.gatecoin.com Based in Hong Kong and you can send Euro and Dollar, Also lists alot of Ethereum Based tokens, Volume is very low at the moment as they recover from a hack but they offer very good support.
The safest place to store you Ether is on a hardware wallet like this one https://www.ledgerwallet.com/products/12-ledger-nano-s.
You can also store all you Ethereum based tokens or shares on this device https://ledger.groovehq.com/knowledge_base/topics/how-to-secure-your-eth-tokens-augur-rep-dot-dot-dot-with-your-nano-s
The way "I view" the incentive to keep Ether (ETH) is the following and the reason i think it will go up in value is because of "The velocity of Ether moving through the Ethereum economy (Platform)". So the more Ether is used the higher the price will get and in a number of years will see us move down to the lower units finney, szabo, shannon, babbage, lovelace, and wei as the digital economy grows. Ether has 18 decimal places 1,000,000,000,000,000,000. Because after POS Ether total supply will be set at approx. 100 Million with a small inflation of 1 to 3% that pays the computers running it.
So ether will be more like the reserve currency and trade currency between all the other currencies, contracts and Dapps interacting in the Ethereum digital economy. But its main function is like a gas to run the network. Every transaction you have to pay a tiny amount to the network that goes to all the computers running the network. less than 1 penny.
Ethereum Based Tokens / Synthetic assets (What is a Synthetic Asset https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=St9DBpNBP1Q)
On coinmarketcap.com you can see there are 642 other Blockchain projects listed and some like Bitcoin are 8 years old. 90%+ of these projects are junk projects developed by 1 or 2 people and are just copies of Bitcoin. Some have added extra functions over Bitcoin and Bitcoin is a very secure but slow payment DAPP but cant do much else besides payments.
Ethereum was built from scratch and is built like lets say "android or a smart phone" so that DAPPS can be plugged in as you should have heard from the above videos. So there are now a good few DAPPS that are nearly completion that were built on the ethereum blockchain by different groups of developers. There are alot more but 328 are listed here: http://dapps.ethercasts.com/. So there is not just 643 blockchain projects there are over 1000 but all the ones on Ethereum can communicate or interoperate with eachother. Some notable ones you can see listed on coinmarketcap are Augur, Iconomi, DigixDAO, Golem, SingularDTV etc..... All these because they are built on the Ethereum blockchain can interact with eachother but the other 600+ blockchains can not. This is what makes Ethereum different from the rest.
As DigixDAO is the one i have studied most ill give an example of a DAPP thats built on Ethereum and why a DAPP would be usefull
In industry most work is automated, the operators no longer have to take process samples manually and send to the lab or go and top up a tank manually with certain additives, This is all done by automation, When the process is at a certain temperate, level, viscosity etc.. the instrumentation measures this and adds or pumps the necessary ingredients / additives to make sure the final product is made correctly. This automation has saved alot of costs and manual labour in industry.
What Digix / blockchain is doing is automating alot of the back office paperwork, accounting, agreements etc... Example: company that owns a gold vault (Like Silver Bullion) have employees handling paperwork / sales etc and when people sell and buy gold it changes hands or changes registered ownership and the employees have to manually do this paperwork. What Digix provides is automated software that does all this automatically in 14 seconds. For billing / storage if you have gold stored in the vault you pay about 1% a year so you know if you have $10,000 worth of gold then you need to pay about $100 a year which you pay by topping up your gold (DGX) by $100 and its taken out automatically each day by a tiny tiny amount.
The good thing is that if you have Gold Tokens as your savings instead of Fiat and you need to borrow $ short term you can borrow $ by agreeing to lock your Gold Tokens in a smart contract in the software and pay interest for that loan. If you pay back the loan over 3 months then the gold tokens are automatically returned to your address and you havent missed a gold rally or a Fiat devaluation. If you dont pay it back then the person who lent you the $ gets all your gold (or the % not paid) Again this process is automated in a smart contract and the bullion employee didnt have to settle all the paperwork, transfers of gold or get contracts and agreements signed by both parties, This is done by digital signature / agreements and saves the Vault operator alot of costs.
The vault operator can also earn a bit of the loans interest and $ can be provided by them or even 3rd parties. Using the Ethereum blockchain this can be done for lots of different industries from banking, stocks, insurance, gambling, pritty much everywhere
Other non Ethereum related Youtube people i follow, mainly Economics, Geo-politics, Gold / Silver etc.... These people give some very good info that you wont get from the big media companies or state media. Maybe this will help you understand why you should not keep 100% of your wealth in $ and maybe a few % is worth keeping in Crypto or ever Gold Physical or easier DGX (DigixDAO) or DGD.

My prediction

My prediction: I doubt it will be anything different from what you hear, but it might be...
Bitcoin is being manipulated by China, China doesn't want to ban Bitcoin, it doesn't want to shut down exchanges, it's only doing this so they scoop more of the pile for their country. When BTC hits 3k it will shoot back up. I am waiting for it to go lower and lower, only weak hands let go now. You have to remember the value of Bitcoin and what its used for, it has so much more use and efficiency compared to fiat currency, if you remember that, you will believe more. China and North Korea are not stupid, they're buying because they know this is the future. The media is only doing them a favour by putting FUD out there. I would be interested in hearing what your thoughts are on this, I believe this is all manipulation because they know BTC hit 5k, it will go back up again easily.
There is a reason why China and Asia is lightyears ahead of us in terms of technology. This ticks all the boxes, for once I am loving to see the Bitcoin prices go down. If Bitcoin wasn't a threat, the media wouldn't be talking.
Check out what Clif High says about China and their plans in this short video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg8Q5C7CPVQ

In industry most work is automated, the operators no longer have to take process samples manually and send to the lab or go and top up a tank manually with certain additives, This is all done by automation, When the process is at a certain temperate, level, viscosity etc.. the instrumentation measures this and adds or pumps the necessary ingredients / additives to make sure the final product is made correctly. This automation has saved alot of costs and manual labour in industry.
What Digix / blockchain is doing is automating alot of the back office paperwork, accounting, agreements etc... Example: company that owns a gold vault (Like Silver Bullion) have employees handling paperwork / sales etc and when people sell and buy gold it changes hands or changes registered ownership and the employees have to manually do this paperwork. What Digix provides is automated software that does all this automatically in 14 seconds. For billing / storage if you have gold stored in the vault you pay about 1% a year so you know if you have $10,000 worth of gold then you need to pay about $100 a year which you pay by topping up your gold (DGX) by $100 and its taken out automatically each day by a tiny tiny amount.
The good thing is that if you have Gold Tokens as your savings instead of Fiat and you need to borrow $ short term you can borrow $ by agreeing to lock your Gold Tokens in a smart contract in the software and pay interest for that loan. If you pay back the loan over 3 months then the gold tokens are automatically returned to your address and you havent missed a gold rally or a Fiat devaluation. If you dont pay it back then the person who lent you the $ gets all your gold (or the % not paid) Again this process is automated in a smart contract and the bullion employee didnt have to settle all the paperwork, transfers of gold or get contracts and agreements signed by both parties, This is done by digital signature / agreements and saves the Vault operator alot of costs.
The vault operator can also earn a bit of the loans interest and $ can be provided by them or even 3rd parties. Using the Ethereum blockchain this can be done for lots of different industries from banking, stocks, insurance, gambling, pritty much everywhere
Other non Ethereum related Youtube people i follow, mainly Economics, Geo-politics, Gold / Silver etc.... These people give some very good info that you wont get from the big media companies or state media. Maybe this will help you understand why you should not keep 100% of your wealth in $ and maybe a few % is worth keeping in Crypto or ever Gold Physical or easier DGX (DigixDAO) or DGD.

What Could the Next Farm Bill Mean for the Organic Program?

It has been a rough few years for the organic label. From scandals over fraudulent organic grain imports and the revelation of several factory-scale farms producing certified organic milk and eggs, to controversy around the inclusion of hydroponic or “soilless” farming and the reversal of comprehensive animal welfare rules, not to mention last week’s termination of the organic checkoff proposal, one thing is clear: The organic industry’s rapid growth may also turn out to be its downfall.
Organic is the fastest-growing retail segment, valued at $50 billion per year, and an increasing number of multinational corporations want a piece of the pie, leaving the integrity of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) certified organic seal in question. In fact, organic agriculture is so fractured that several groups of organic farmers and advocates have begun to create alternative labels to realign with what they believe is the original intent of USDA Organic.
Now, organic certification faces an attack from Congress, which has proposed re-shaping the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB), the citizen group that oversees organic regulations. By allowing more corporate entities to evaluate the organic label and decide which farm chemicals and other inputs farmers are allowed to use on their organic fields, industry insiders worry the proposed changes could further erode the strict standards of organic production that distinguished it from conventional agriculture and built a thriving market.
Given the strife over organic regulations within the USDA and the building pressure from agribusiness lobbyists on Congress, could this farm bill weaken organics to the breaking point?
https://preview.redd.it/qh5fknz5s9z01.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=258c26378d0186e6a6f6be1c5981f650d58189d5
What is the NOSB?
The Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) created the organic program in 1990, with the intention of launching a national certification program that represented the highest standards of organic agriculture. It’s a voluntary program, and farmers bear the costs of becoming certified and paying for annual on-farm inspections. In exchange for following a strict set of standards that set them apart from conventional agriculture, they can affix the USDA Organic seal to their products that garner higher prices in the market.
Congress originally created the NOSB in 1990 to oversee the National Organic Program (NOP) on the growing, processing, and handling of organic products. Comprised of 15 volunteer members appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture for five-year terms, the board currently must include four farmers, three environmentalists, three consumer representatives, two organic handlers, a retailer, a certifier, and one expert in toxicology, ecology, or biochemistry. These quotas were designed to ensure balanced representation, instill trust in the process, and protect the principles of organic agriculture from special interests.
“The NOSB gets critiqued on all sides,” said NOSB member Tom Chapman, who said that the board gets accused of simultaneously being stacked with agribusiness reps and small organic producers, depending on who you ask. “It’s reflective of the fact that we have such diverse stakeholders,” he added.
The Proposed Changes
Congress is proposing two big changes to the NOSB: Allowing employees of organic farmers or producers to be permitted to occupy board positions, and allowing politicians to sidestep the NOSB’s authority to approve substances such as the fertilizers and pesticides used in organic production—changes that raise alarms for some in the organic industry.
On April 18, the House Committee on Agriculture released its version of the 2018 Farm Bill, the Agriculture and Nutrition Act (HR 2), calling for statutory changes to the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) of 1990, and to the make-up of the NOSB.
The National Organic Coalition, which includes 14 farmer and consumer organizations, gave the draft an “F” on its recent scorecard due to the to unprecedented reforms to the organic program that are “unnecessary and weaken the authority of the NOSB.”
In addition to chairing the NOSB, Chapman is the director of ingredient sourcing at Clif Bar. While he strongly supports statutory fixes that increase transparency and accountability to preserve organic integrity, he said, “I don’t think that any of the amendments proposed by the House needed to be solved legislatively.” He points to the fact that employees of large-scale organic producers, such as the berry company Driscoll’s and the organic cooperative CROPP have already occupied positions on NOSB, so Chapman believes the process is already working in a way that is flexible and responsive to the market.
Others don’t believe that the board has kept up with the accelerated growth and expansion of the market. The House Agriculture Committee asserts that there’s a need to clarify board roles within the law. “Today’s farms, including organic farms, come in all shapes, sizes, and business structures,” a House Ag committee aide, who asked to remain unnamed, replied to Civil Eats via email. “This policy will ensure those who have applicable expertise and a vested interest in the organic program are not arbitrarily excluded from the process.”
Certainly, the legal clarification for NOSB roles may seem like the least momentous issue in the 2018 Farm Bill, which also proposes major overhauls to SNAP food assistance programs and farmland conservation funds. But for organic insiders, it represents a significant erosion of the board’s authority on matters of organic law.
Jay Feldman, executive director of Beyond Pesticides, sat on the NOSB as the environmental representative from 2010 to 2015. He’s concerned about the change. “There are so many large companies getting involved with organic that do not have the history with organic, and that makes them less than optimal members of the NOSB,” he said. “They don’t have the insight into organic practices.”
If a Del Monte employee replaces a small-scale family farmer, for example, “you’re undercutting the integrity of the organic seal,” said Feldman.
While Congress has never tinkered with the structure of the NOSB before, the greatest concern stems from the proposed “expedited process” for approving substances for the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances. Until now, the OFPA has granted NOSB the exclusive authority to approve agricultural inputs such as fertilizers and pesticides for certified organic crop and livestock production. It also expressly prohibits the Secretary of Agriculture from adding any synthetic materials (generally prohibited) such as pesticides and herbicides, and non-synthetic or natural materials (generally allowed), such as essential oils and copper sulfate, to the National List without the specific recommendation of the NOSB.
But the House’s proposed farm bill would change the status quo.
“That concerned us,” said Megan DeBates, legislative liaison for the Organic Trade Association (OTA). “The Secretary could add something to the National List without approval from the NOSB.” The biggest concern is synthetic pesticides.
At the eleventh hour, committee member Congressman Rodney Davis (R-IL) inserted a clarification to reassert the role of the NOSB in reviewing and establishing the National List. When contacted by Civil Eats, the same House committee aide wrote by email that the proposed legislation “protects the role of the [NOSB] in reviewing and establishing the National List.”
Another troubling provision includes an as-yet undefined “task force” to review petitions for any substance that has been approved by the FDA or EPA. The USDA Organic certification involves a much higher set of standards than those agencies allow, especially in evaluating the ecological impact of the products.
“Many of the critics of organics are really steeped in the pesticide side of the input regulation and not familiar with the degree to which organic farmers are monitored by the compliance process,” said Feldman. He cited the use of copper sulfate as a fungicide that includes strict compliance standards and oversight.
The goal of organic agriculture is to incentivize alternative products and practices in the market. What happens to the process, critics like Feldman wonder, when an NOSB member from a multinational corporation questions why the company cannot use a substance that’s been approved by the EPA or FDA? The ultimate danger is that the Secretary or a petitioner backed up by the EPA or FDA could override the NOSB. If passed, these statutory changes could ultimately eliminate the difference between conventional and organic foods.
“My biggest fear, bottom line, is that if we allow the chipping away of this statute we will destroy the integrity of this label and the public will no longer pay the premium in the marketplace,” said Feldman.
During the Obama administration the USDA impinged upon NOSB authority by dictating the board’s priorities and changed the sunset process, the procedure for adding and removing substances to the National List every five years. And in March, Agriculture Secretary Purdue withdrew a set of animal welfare regulations that had been shaped in large part by the NOSB over a well-vetted 10-year process. That battle is now in the federal courts, but has divided the organic industry
According to OTA’s DeBates, the majority of the association’s 9,500 members “oppose making changes to the NOSB.”
“The changes are not coming from the organic industry,” confirmed NOSB chair Chapman. “I would like to dialogue with these folks about those concerns.”
The House Agriculture Committee’s farm bill is expected to move to the floor of the House this week, and the Senate Agriculture Committee is drafting its own Farm Bill, expected in late May. There is widespread concern that that version could chip away even further at the NOSB.
In March, the OTA sent a letter to Senate Agriculture Committee Chair Pat Roberts and ranking member Debbie Stabenow that was also signed by 138 organic power players opposing changes to what it called the “unique public-private partnership” of the NOSB. So far, the letter has gone unanswered.
Last July, Roberts signaled his interest in making major reforms, saying: “Uncertainty and dysfunction have overtaken the National Organic Standards Board and the regulations associated with the National Organic Program.”
Along with Roberts’ constituents, many groups are disgruntled with the state of the nation’s certified organic program. But it remains unclear, who, exactly, is pushing Congress for these changes in the farm bill.
“The process hasn’t been very transparent,” said DeBates. “If there are people advocating for changes [behind closed doors], then that’s a big red flag.”
One group that is rumored to be pushing for change is the Specialty Crop Alliance, which includes the Western Growers Association, United Fresh, and other state growing commissions. However, the Specialty Crop Alliance did not respond to Civil Eats’ requests for comment.
Pesticide and fertilizer manufacturers that have had their petitions for materials denied by the NOSB may also be lobbying Congress. But Congressional staffers aren’t naming names.
The fact that organic producers as a whole are being targeted by these efforts concerns DeBates. “They wouldn’t do it to dairy [farmers], they wouldn’t do it to cotton [farmers],” she added.
The details will likely play out in the long legislative process ahead. “The organic industry is on high alert,” said DeBates.

News from the world of cryptocurrencies — December 7th, 2017

A rocket called Bitcoin seems unstoppable. Bitcoin scored over $ 2,000 a day and exceeded $ 16,000. The Bithumb South Korean stock exchange has even traded bitcoin at over $ 21,000. Other significant virtual currencies, however, recorded a decline - for example, Ethereum on the BitStamp dropped to $ 410, even though the BitHumb stock price was more than $ 500. The Ripple and Litecoin prices also dropped. For those who would like to exploit the great differences between the cryptocurrency prices in South Korea and the rest of the world - it's not easy. Obtaining an account on South Korean exchange is, for example, dependent on having a South Korean phone number, and it is neither easy nor quick to send the fiat currencies to the South Korean stock exchange (if you manage to set up an account) or to send the fiat money out of the Korea . South Korea also has capital controls - limitations on the amount of money sent / received from the country and into the country.
An interesting situation has arisen regarding large companies and their support for bitcoin payments. While some of the companies have recently announced bitcoin payment support - by 2018, Bitcoin payments are likely to be accepted by McDonald's fast-food chain, British Airways, Betway betting giants and the Amazon internet store, Steam has announced end of the bitcoin support. The reason for this is the large fluctuations in the bitcoin exchange rate and high transaction fees. Steam accepts mainly small payments and, in the case of small bitcoin payments, the transaction charges are a large percentage of that.
There is also a growing consumption of electricity for cryptomining - the annual consumption is expected to be almost 32 TWh this year. Less energy is consumed by Nigeria, which has 186 million people or by Ireland. And one more comparison: every day, bitcoin mining consumes the same electricity as the whole Haiti per year. If the energy consumption for mining grew at such a dizzying pace, it will consume the same electricity as the entire United States in July 2019, and as the whole world in February 2020.
Further estimates of the bitcoin course in the following years have been said. The highest estimate was given by John McAfee, the founder of antivirus firm of the same name. According to him, bitcoin will be trading for one million dollars at the end of 2020. Tone Vays, a specialist blockchain consultant, predicts the price of hundreds of thousands of dollars at the end of 2018. Investor Mike Novogratz, formerly the specialist hedge fund manager at Fortress Investment Group, estimated the bitcoin price next year at forty thousand dollars. Three more specialists, Tom Lee, Clif High and Ronnie Moas, remain more cautious in their predictions, expecting the bitcoin price between eleven and twenty thousand dollars in the next year. Some investors, however, still do not believe Bitcoin and consider it a speculative bubble similar to a tulip bubble in the 17th century in Holland. Who is true? Only time will tell.
For investors wishing to ride a bull trend but not wanting to invest directly in cryptos, there is a possibility to invest in company that is “mining” them. Such a mining company drives mining according to the actual value of each cryptocurrency, so investors do not need to monitor how the market is evolving. Instead of investors, the market situation is monitored by the experts of the company. An example of such a company is the Swiss Envion, which has developed portable containers with cryptomining equipment that can be placed directly at sources of cheap electricity (which is a major part of mining costs).
Envion is now looking for investors who are interested in the idea of cryptomining - the sale of investment tokens begins on December 15, 2017. More information about the whole project can be found at http://www.envion.org (here is, in addition to basic information, detailed whitepaper, links to various communication channels, etc.) Information about the sale of investment tokens (so-called ICO) can be found at https://www.envion.org/en/ico/

My prediction: I doubt it will be anything different from what you hear, but it might be...
Bitcoin is being manipulated by China, China doesn't want to ban Bitcoin, it doesn't want to shut down exchanges, it's only doing this so they scoop more of the pile for their country. When BTC hits 3k it will shoot back up. I am waiting for it to go lower and lower, only weak hands let go now. You have to remember the value of Bitcoin and what its used for, it has so much more use and efficiency compared to fiat currency, if you remember that, you will believe more. China and North Korea are not stupid, they're buying because they know this is the future. The media is only doing them a favour by putting FUD out there. I would be interested in hearing what your thoughts are on this, I believe this is all manipulation because they know BTC hit 5k, it will go back up again easily.
There is a reason why China and Asia is lightyears ahead of us in terms of technology. This ticks all the boxes, for once I am loving to see the Bitcoin prices go down. If Bitcoin wasn't a threat, the media wouldn't be talking.
