What that was, more even than a chance for Venezuela to attempt to get out from under the thumb of the US biggest weapon, the IMF, was the beginning of this coup we're being sold on now. I saw it then, I stand by it now.

You know I don't really disagree with you, but you can't expect the US to sanction Venezuela while looking the other way from a massive loophole like the Petro, which also has all appearances of being a blatant instrument of fraud. Even if the US wasn't squeezing Venezuela with sanctions, buying Petro would be such a terrible idea that the US should at least strongly advise its citizens against doing so.

In more cryptocurrency and sanctions-evading news, the amount that North Korea has made/stolen in cryptocurrencies has been totaled up, and it's well over a half a billion dollars:

I believe that "Massive Loophole" and  "Blatant Fraud" is the new normal anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hello, 

First of all forgot about how crypto currency work, this is useless information.

All you need to know is how to transfer money on crypto exchange and vice versa. Other things are about how to trade. Also there is some tricky things such as [canoeing bots, among other things].  Now just google where to find best of them.

just checked and its a little over $7000 today......

What happens with all the "lost" bitcoins that people "mined" years ago when they were worthless and lost the passsword / computer ?  a friend had 20-30 bitcoins  from years ago , but has no way to find them , 

There must be millions like him....

Bitcoin price 12/8/2017, $15,310.

If you'd bought $15,310 worth of an S&P 500 fund the same day this thread started it would be $18,309.54 today. If you'd bought one bitcoin it would be $6,914.56.

@californiamilleghia: I think it's gone. Same with the $450 million worth of bitcoin stolen from Mt Gox in 2014.

I find it laughable people continue to invest in such an old crypto like Bitcoin when the clearly superior Buttcoin exists.

Yep if you lose the wallet file or password, it's just gone. Like locking cash in a hypothetical impenetrable safe and then losing the safe or combination. I remember reading a story about a guy in England who threw out a hard drive with a few bitcoins on it, he even went looking around in the dump for it but had no luck.
