Bitcoin Just passed $14,000. Here's Why It's On Its Way To At Least $100,000 And Why You Need To Buy Some Now.

1. Goldman Sachs has been hiring 'Blockchain' and 'Crypto' Experts and is widely rumored to be working on a 'crypto exchange' that will open sometime in mid-2018.

2. Morgan Stanley has backtracked from its previous skepticism and is now calling Bitcoin 'Digital Gold', saying cryptocurrencies are a new asset class

3. Futures Trading has been approved by both CME, the world's largest options exchange as well as the (CBOE) Chicago Board Options Exchanges.

4. Japan has ruled that Bitcoin is a legal currency and futures trading is being planned for the Tokyo Financial Exchange.

5. Amazon is rumored to be considering accepting Bitcoin as payment for its products, following competitor Overstock.com which already accepts Bitcoin as well as Square, which enables users to pay with Bitcoin.

6. Bitcoin adoption has reached 'critical mass' with the general public and many mainstream institutions accepting it as 'legit'. Bitcoin and cryptocurrency ETFs are now being offered and mainstream publications such as Forbes, Fortune and Time are featuring cover stories on it.

7. The cryptocurrency and blockchain industry is experiencing tremendous job growth and features higher pay and better benefits than comparable positions in other industries

8. There will only ever be 21 million Bitcoins.  The Bitcoin protocol doesn't allow for any more.  Overwhelming demand meeting this very limited supply is causing and will continue to cause the price of Bitcoin to explode.  Some are forecasting it could hit $100,000 and world famous investors are predicting it will go even higher such as Mark Yusko ($400,000) and John McAfee and James Altucher ($1,000,000) within 5 years.

9. Tom Lee of Fundstrat advisors says - If bitcoin captures "5 percent of just the gold market, it's $25,000," Lee added. "But 5 percent seems like an awfully small number. Let's say it's 10 or 15. Then bitcoin could easily be in the $100,000 range."  We think this is on the low end. 

10. Bitcoin allows you to be in control of your wealth.  Instead of putting it in savings or checking accounts, allowing bankers to then use your money to make high risk investments that WE have to bail them out of (like in 2008) when they don't work out, owning Bitcoin allows you to keep possession of your wealth without the risk of someone else's decisions.  And by its very nature Bitcoin is a deflationary currency rather than inflationary.  This means it will GAIN value as time goes on rather than LOSE value like the US dollar where the Fed can print as much as it wants deflating the price.  Bitcoin is a better option for your savings.

Coinbase, the largest, most user friendly and most trusted Bitcoin exchange has added well over 100,000 new accounts in the past 30 days alone due to the exploding value of Bitcoin.   This is something you don't want to miss out on.

The time to buy Bitcoin is NOW.  You don't have to buy an entire Bitcoin.  Even a hundred dollars worth could be worth a nice chunk of cash if Bitcoin keeps increasing in value dramatically. Get $10 in Free Bitcoin when opening an account using the referral link below.

Moto X News - - Front Page Comments and Discussion / Moto X4: The Reviews

So after a year without X, we finally have the new Moto X4 and a lot of people are excited about Lenovo coming back to the X brand.  When the X4 was first shown a few months ago there was some genuine excitement for the new model.  While it didn't offer the customizations that the previous X series was known for it did offer a fresh, clean look, a nice dual lens camera, a headphone jack and perhaps most popular of all, a wallet friendly price about half of what many of the flagship competitors are selling for.  So now that it's been released and the major tech blogs and mags have had a chance to play with it in-depth, what do they think of the Moto X4?  Well, we've included some of the best video reviews in this post so you can see for yourself.  Up above we have Android Authority and below we have some others from popular tech bloggers like Flossy Carter and and Phone Arena.  Let us know what you think yourself in the comments below and if you'll  be picking up one.

The first time I thought about getting a VPN or Virtual Private Network, was when I was on vacation in europe and I found to my dismay I couldn't access my Netflix account to watch the latest episodes of Breaking Bad.  It hadn't occurred to me until then that lots of countries actually block content from other countries.  A friend suggested I get a VPN which would allow me to spoof a US IP address no matter where I was so I could continue to watch my US Netflix shows and so I got one...a buggy, slow, expensive one...but it worked at least.

Fast forward to today, several years later where I've discovered a world of shows, movies, news and tons of websites that are located all over the world that I never had access to before I started using Windscribe.  I routinely watch live British news shows and television shows right from the comfort of my home in Los Angeles by using a British IP address so that I can access British tv and web unhindered.  I do the same with French and German sites as well as several countries in eastern europe and even Russia.  It's amazing what you start finding once the world is unlocked.


There's other reasons to use a Virtual Private Network beyond just unlocking content however.  I personally don't like Google, Apple, Microsoft and frankly all sorts of other companies and advertisers knowing where i'm surfing on the web all the time.  I don't like the idea of being tracked by advertising bots and cookies that target advertising to me and keep records of every site I've been to.  With Windscribe you not only get to surf the whole world's web unfiltered but if you choose you also remain hidden from all those tracking bots and advertising cookies.  Windscribe is not only a VPN, it also has several additional features and a special browser plug-in that blocks most advertising and trackers so that you can surf the web privately.  Trust me...this is awesome...it gives you a sense of freedom to know that nobody is looking over your shoulder while surfing the web.

So why Windscribe you might ask?  Afterall there are a lot of VPN's out there.  Well frankly, I've tried about half a dozen of the leading VPNs and when I evaluate the entire experience, meaning performance, features, ease of use, reliability and price I have to give the prize to Windscribe.  Seriously, i'm not joking.  Several other VPNs I have used have had performance issues.  My connection will get hung up, or download speeds will be slow.   Sometimes I find that popular websites or forums are blocking other VPNs IP addresses.  I haven't had these problems with Windscribe.  Another problem I've had with some other services has to do with crashing or hanging my computer.  I've even gotten the blue screen of death using some other VPNs.  I've never, not even once had that happen with Windscribe.  It's rock solid and works every. single. time.   


Something else I like with Windscribe is that once you have an account, they have versions for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android all included so you can use it on your pc, phone tablet...wherever.  Just as importantly Windscribe is a GREAT deal.  I'm not just saying that.  You can sign up for a free plan to try it out and right off the bat it gives you 10GB. That's a LOT of free data for a FREE plan.  With most free plans you get maybe 1 GB.  The downside of the free plan is that it only let's you use a few different IP addresses so to really start surfing the world like I do you'll want to upgrade to the PRO Plan and then you get dozens and dozens of IP addresses in tons of countries.  But frankly, it's so cheap...less than $4/month with the special 50% promo code below there is absolutely no reason not to get the Pro plan.  It is SO worth it.  Trust me, this is the single best investment you can make to improve your web surfing experience and frankly LEARNING experience. 

There is so much new content out there in other countries that you simply don't even realize exists until you start using Windscribe and start searching around with the country specific versions of Google, Bing, Yahoo and others.  I've linked the Windscribe site below so you can sign up for either the free or pro version.   My guess is that once you try it you're going to be hooked.  I can't believe I waited so long to start using a VPN.  Now I probably use it for over 50% of my web surfing.  I just love being anonymous and also being able to watch content and visit sites in other countries I just didn't know existed until I started using it. 

Make sure to check out all the free BBC, Sky TV and more once you connect using a British IP...I recently have been watching the original British versions of american shows...it's so cool to be able to do that....and also to see the live news broadcasts in other countries that are usually blocked to us in the U.S.  Practically every country has even more country specific programming and web content you'll discover as well.  I've arranged a special 50% off deal that you can access by clicking the blue link below and then using the promo code 'WS50OFF' when paying for the Pro version.  With the discount it's $45 for the entire year.  That's less than $4 a month!  Do it now and sign up so you don't forget...you can thank me later.

Today I want to introduce both a game and a new company behind the game that is utilizing the blockchain, the technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to remake the gaming experience.

Next Level Token is a Detroit based video game developer that has several games under development.   The first, Diplomatic Deathmatch, has a Beta available in the Google Play Store which you can check out now.  Other games in development include a cool multiplayer futuristic tank game called VR Tactics as well as a 2D battle fighter game that will feature various rap icons duking it out. Hip-hop lyricist Ty Law has signed on to help create and market the game.


Next Level Token's 2nd game, VR Tactics is coming soon and features
turn based strategy and gorgeous 3d renders from the team at Wolf VR.

Now there are lots of companies out there making games but what makes Next Level Token different and innovative is that they are using the blockchain in order to provide a token, a form of currency that is called the NLT Token that is used to play the game and also that players are rewarded with buy playing and achieving certain levels and scores in the game.  These tokens can be cashed in for real money via an exchange so you’re being rewarded…and incentivized to play Next Level Token’s games.

Right now the company is concentrating on making fun, easy to learn but action packed games that can be played as instant time fillers while standing in line, sitting on a bus or waiting for an apt.  Later on they plan on making more extensive story based games.

The game I’ve played so far, Diplomatic Deathmatch, is a fun fighting game using famous political characters such as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.   The game has hilarious animation and cool little touches like the setting being in the White House Oval Office and pictures of Obama and Lincoln on the walls.  Updates to the game soon planned include new artwork featuring Vladimir Putin and other political figures as well as updated versions of Hillary and the Donald.  It’s definitely a fun game to play and the visuals keep you endlessly amused. 





There is a bigger picture plan to Next Level Token.  Once they have their game and NLT token system introduced they plan on using the tokens and ecosystem they’ve created as a way to lure other indy developers to develop their games to also function on their token network.  This way when you purchase  and win NLT tokens you’ll have a constant stream of new games to play and hopefully win still MORE tokens.  The entire idea is a great introduction to the cryptocurrency market and while nobody  should expect to get rich playing video games it sure makes sense that if you’re going to be playing a game anyway, you might as well be rewarded for your time and effort and if it means a free cup of coffee with the tokens you win while waiting on line…then why not.

For those that have further interest in Next Level Token and their games or if you want to participate in their token sale I’ve provided some links to the company’s website as well as the Beta for Diplomatic Deathmatch on the Play Store below.  The company has been holding an ICO (Initial Coin Offering) which lets you buy tokens early at a huge discount and it’s also a great way of supporting the company and helping fund their games development.   Check them out and make sure you keep an eye out for their new games as they are introduced.  We think it’s a cool idea and are pulling for them to be successful.

It wasn't all that long ago that the original Moto X was introduced with all the fanfair and patriotism of a national event.  Built in the U.S.A. it featured customizations that were unheard of before such as selectable materials and colors.  Ahhh...well times have changed and with the sale of Motorola to Lenovo the Moto X series was phased out and those of us that loved our Xs were given the choice of jumping to the Z model or taking a step back to the G.   Well I'm happy to say that the Moto X has been resurrected!  The Moto X4 is now available and is a solid mid-range contender at an awesome price.   

Featuring a sleek metal design, dual cameras, ip68 water resistance and powerful snapdragon processor...and some cool exclusives like built-in Amazon Alexa capability and low-light front facing camera.   There's definitely a lot to like here...and maybe best of all the X4 will cost only about HALF of what the leading flagships cost from your mobile dealer.  Not bad.   We'll be posting some reviews soon...for now we have the company's intro video above.  So what do you think?  Will you come back to the Moto X4?
