…that’s because my blog was inactive during the time I turned more bullish on the rate of adoption and long-term potential of this new currency. A few tweets from my timeline.
After recent speculation that BTC died, price hasn’t fallen, & interest rates are more -ve. I’m kinda bullish. pic.twitter.com/ZsBwiL5j0H

In the 2.5 months since this tweet, #BTC is up $100 (24% in USD), and up 30% in ZAR. https://t.co/8zfPeG2viI I’m still bullish.

#BTC is now up 65% off the 2016 lows (in USD). Not seeing much coverage of the rally in the press though. pic.twitter.com/xt2jHc0YiF

Following the 200% rally since the start of the year I’ve done a lot of research on this financial and monetary technology and I’m even more optimistic than I was in late 2015 and 2016 of its long-term prospects. I’m not giving investment advice that you should go out and put your life savings into it today, but open an account at Luno, deposit a tiny amount (as little as R10 is possible), get a family member or friend to download a bitcoin wallet like breadwallet, and see how easy it is to send value (i.e. money) directly to each other over the internet. You’ll see what I’m excited about. Read this book as an intro. Get acquainted with the internet of money, it is truly revolutionary.
