Cryptocurrency Shoots for the Moon... Can You Tolerate the Ride?

Text Copyright (C) 9 December 2017 by Bob Hurt. All rights reserved.  Distribute whole freely.

Origin of ₿itcoin

Bitcoin, the original cryptocurrency, came into existence in 2008 when Satoshi Nakamoto devised and implemented a computer network algorithm which encrypted a buy/sell transaction into a data block, and inserted the block into a chain of blocks. The algorithm guaranteed each new block an absolute position in the block chain, and rewarded  the network computers that verified the block encryption process by issuing virtual money of one "Bitcoin,"  putting that transaction in the block chain as well. The Bitcoin rewards occur randomly. 

Don't let the photo mislead you.  Bitcoin is virtual, not physical currency.  Unlike golden and silver coins, no physical Bitcoins exist, so you cannot hold Bitcoin in your hand.

Last year the Bitcoin rewards occurred at the rate of 125 per minute worldwide. Today they occur at 12 or fewer per minute worldwide.  Thus the process of verifying blocks in the blockchain in exchange for a Bitcoin reward became known as "Bitcoin mining."  

The first known use of Bitcoin in a financial transaction occurred when a pizza vendor accepted 10,000 Bitcoin for an order of pizzas. The dollar value of Bitcoin has risen ever since until it reached $1000 in March 2017. And then the price took off like a rocket to the moon.

The International Standards Organization adopted as the Bitcoin currency symbol (₿ in hypertext markup html).  Financial entities have accepted XBT as the text symbol of choice because the more popular BTC symbol conflicts with the country symbol for Bhutan. 

Recent Bitcoin History

Bitcoin has experienced tremendous popularity. In March 2017, one Bitcoin sold for $1000.  The past three months have seen Bitcoin prices jink upward from $3,700 to over $19,000 3 days ago. Just now it hovers at $14,200 as traders try their best to "buy low and sell high," driving the price up and down like crazy.

What People Want from Bitcoin

People worldwide yearn for Bitcoin to stabilize in its inexorable climb upward, for several reasons, but principally so it can become the defacto international currency away from the control and taxation of any and all government.

Investing in Bitcoin has made it easy for investors to grow their money with no effort at all. In order to purchase Bitcoin with US dollars, one must open an account at a "digital wallet" provider like Coinbase.com, Coinmama.com, or Payza.com. Then one must deposit some money in the account using credit card or bankwire.  Wallet providers don't like credit card deposits because of the risk that customers will demand a chargeback.  One may then purchase Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies with the deposited money.  Then one need only watch the cryptocurrency value jink away.  Yours Truly enjoys GDAX.com because it shows real time Bitcoin trading.

Second, some enterprises have decided to compensate their workers in Bitcoin.  For example, USI Tech, an automated FOREX (foreign currency exchange) software developer, started accepting partners and clients from the general public.  The client enrolls under an existing USI partner, then elects to become a partner by accepting the terms and conditions. 

Clients only grow their money, while partners enroll new clients and show them how to grow their money. Growing money consists of purchasing BTC (Bitcoin) "packages" for the Bitcoin equivalent of €50 each and receiving income from them each business day. USI repays the package cost plus 40% in daily 1% increments over a period of 7 months.  The client may elect to "rebuy" packages with package earnings, thereby compounding the earnings from about 60% APR (annual percentage rate) to 250% APR.  USI distributes a 35% commission to 12 levels of upline partners, with 10% going to the level 1 partner under whom the client enrolled.  USI provides a nice advertising page for the partners, and a convenient on-line enrollment form for new clients.

USI Partners and clients feel delighted to see Bitcoin price rising rapidly.  Bitcoin price declines don't bother them much because they know it will go right back up in a few hours or days.

Imagine your dismay if your periodic paycheck fell in buying value 25% the day you receive it. How long would you remain employed with a company that paid you in such "funny money?"

Well, to address the matter more fairly, let us confess that someone who enrolls at USI does not depend on the company for a periodic paycheck.  Furthermore, a fledgling partner could have in the past two months built a USI package and account balance exceeding $25,000 in value, despite today's depressed Bitcoin price of $13,500.  Remember the $7,280 Bitcoin price of one month ago, and $4255 two months ago.  Who could complain about the price jinking up and down while it inexorably climbs higher and higher overall?  People who buy Bitcoin WANT it to climb ever higher in value.

Why Bitcoin Grows in Value Compared to Dollars

Why does it climb so high so fast?  Yours Truly has a few considerations to share as partial answers.

Bitcoin has an absolute limit of 20 million Bitcoin in circulation, and has so far reached about 17 million.  By comparison, no end exists for the distribution of US dollars in the form of federal reserve notes.  The US Congress has ordered the printing of trillions more in federal reserve notes than it takes in.  Such deficit spending destroys bank deposits of federal reserve notes through inflation, like a back-end tax on savings of government's fiat currency.  Thus, the shortage of Bitcoin makes it more precious and desirable than US dollars, and that drives the price up even though speculators jink the price up and down around its ever-climbing average value.

We in the USA should consider ourselves lucky currency wise compared to the people of Zimbabwe.  Mugabe's recent fall from power there brought with it a further dramatic decline in the value of Zimbabwe's new national currency, the bond note, which he had released on November 28, 2017.  The people of Zimbabwe strove to get and use US dollars (federal reserve notes), but the fortunate ones started trading with US Dollars or Bitcoin.  That drove the international price of Bitcoin upward. 

And so we can see the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies becoming a new and much more reliable kind of international unit of exchange that people can use for purchasing necessities, especially in war-torn or financially crushed economies in third world countries like Zimbabwe.

Cryptocurrencies also provide a medium of obtaining mortgage loans internationally, without government and national banking restrictions.  People can put up their Bitcoin holdings as security for loans.  Bitcoin, because of its rising value, provides much better security than does real estate which borrowers in financial distress always neglect, causing its value to decline.

Bitcoin Problems

Bitcoin can solve a lot of financial problems internationally, but it brings its own problems.

Bitcoin's dramatic price jinks make it unsuitable for use as a standardized currency for daily use in paying bills and payrolls and buying commodities. Workers want to know in advance what their paychecks will buy.  Since no law requires a vendor or landlord to take Bitcoin in payment for products, services, or rent, Bitcoin cannot function as a common currency with a reliable value.

On the other hand, no government regulates Bitcoin production, mining, quantity in circulation, or value in national currencies.  That alone gives Bitcoin great value, especially for people who want to make monetary transactions away from government scrutiny.  Government, you see, has regulated, criminalized, or taxed the buying and selling of sexual services, human beings, human bodies and organs, explosives, military armament, stolen goods, and so on.  Bitcoin encourages circumvention of taxes and regulations, and participation in criminal transactions.

Because of this, governments' legislators and law enforcers struggle to devise ways to penetrate the secrecy of cryptocurrency transactions.  They have decided to attack the companies that provide cryptocurrency traders with digital wallets. Last week, the IRS obtained a court order requiring the cryptocurrency wallet provider Coinbase to hand over 14,300 records of transactions exceeding $20,000 in 2014 and 2015.  So much for the privacy rights of those cryptocurrency traders.  Government snooping makes everyone nervous because of the intensity of government tax collection efforts.

Bitcoin transaction time deters many from relying on Bitcoin for day to day purchases. Unlike with common fiat currency like federal reserve notes, Bitcoin transactions take some time, ranging from two or three minutes to fifteen or twenty minutes, to complete.  The higher the volume of transactions the longer it takes to put them into the blockchain and get verification of the transaction from several computers in the blockchain network.

And digital wallets have not become universally simple and convenient to use, typically not as convenient as pulling $20 out of your wallet and handing it to someone.  Nevertheless, smart phone and smart watch applications using NFC (Near Field Communication) and QRCode scanning capabilities can simplify the initiation of buy/sell transactions, such as in a coffee shop that accepts Bitcoin.

King of Pentacles - Tarot Symbol for Prosperity

Bitcoin Heads for Even Broader Acceptance

In spite of its drawbacks, Bitcoin stands closer to becoming an international currency accepted worldwide for many kinds of transactions.  Yours Truly believes that it will continue in that vein until a much better-planned cryptocurrency takes its place.  Jealous governments will surely make their own cryptocurrencies, like the Federal Reserve's "FedCoin," and force people to accept them as a medium of exchange.

If that happens, the US Congress will have to devise a limit on the production of the FedCoins lest they become ever-more worthless like federal reserve notes have.  Without that limit, Congress will spend more FedCoin than it takes in, and that will create an overabundance that will drive down the value.

So Yours Truly does not see the FedCoin replacing the Bitcoin any time soon.  Meanwhile we should not naively think that Bitcoin can become a fully functional international currency in spite of its value volatility.  In fact, if ever a time existed to buy Bitcoin, that time has come throughout the past 9 months.

Randy Kelton says Bob Hurt is "MEAN?"

Dear Randy Kelton:

Rumor has it that you referred to me as "Mean" on Talkshoe.  I write this in response.  Feel free to promulgate it to others.

First of all, I have never met you in person, but when I mused over the spanking a Texas judge gave in a foreclosure defense effort, and you said you lost the case intentionally, I concluded that you are a better enemy than friend to foreclosure victims, and I wrote something similar on the LivingLiesTheTruth.com blog.  Maybe that's why you think I'm mean. As I see it, anyone who would lose a foreclosure case on purpose is mean.

I used to put on seminars to teach foreclosure defense. I quit after I concluded that NEARLY ALL foreclosure defenses fail utterly because borrowers agreed to allow foreclosure for failure to make timely loan payments.  At best, most typical foreclosure defenses have standing as their basis, and ultimately the right party with standing will come forth, foreclose, and force a sale of the property, OR the borrower might convince the creditor to take a keys-for-cash or other deed-in-lieu-of-foreclosure deal.  And sometimes the borrower can arrange for the creditor to approve of a short sale. 

In any case, foreclosure defense efforts result in the borrower LOSING the house, LOSING all the cost of the defense, LOSING at least part of opponent's attorney fees and costs, and LOSING in terms of the emotional wear and tear on the family.  A temporary dismissal of a foreclosure action is NOT a win.  It's a dilatory ploy that violates bar rules, and actually just prolongs eventually losing the foreclosure defense effort.

I concluded after some investigation that fraud and other tortious conduct, legal errors, contract breaches and regulatory violations underlie MOST home loans of the past 15+ years, and that gives salient causes of action to borrowers who choose to go on the attack and seek damages in court or in negotiated settlement.  

So I created the Mortgage Attack web site to teach people to ATTACK the perpetrators of those causes of action.  As you will see from  a careful examination of the web site, I explain why foreclosure pretender defender attorneys (and similar practitioners) are nothing more or less than SCAMMERS trying to bilk their feckless clients out of money while leading those clients inexorably into the jaws of foreclosure.  And I do not charge any money for giving people that education.

I do, however, recommend to all mortgagors that they enlist the services of a competent mortgage examiner who will find all the causes of action underlying the loan transaction and related events throughout the life of the loan, including litigation.  I know only one firm competent enough to do that job, and I refer interested parties to that firm at NO CHARGE.  Sure, the company charges a fee for that service, but it is about 1/3 of what a lawyer would charge IF the mortgage victim could find a lawyer competent to do the work, which he cannot.

It takes a monumental amount of knowledge and skill to find all the causes of action underlying the loan transaction.  An investigatory team must know cold and have a profound WORKING KNOWLDGE of all the regulatory state and federal laws including FDCPA, FCRA, HOEPA, TILA, RESPA, ECOA, HAMP, HARP, etc., all the typical means of cheating borrowers, the intricacies of appraisal and lending practice and scams, mortgage lending processes nationwide, meticulous details of uniform lending instruments, contract law, tort law, statutes of limitations, unique laws, rules, and binding court opinions of various jurisdictions related to mortgage/deed-of-trust lending, the intricacies of mortgage loan servicing, loan modifications, forebearances, bankruptcies, foreclosure actions, non-judicial foreclosure process, note assignments, Federal and State rules of evidence, civil procedure, and LITIGATION PRACTICE.  The team must examine the appraisal, loan application, note and allonges, security instrument, closing documents, escrow statements, servicer/creditor correspondence, legal notices, AND court filings, pleadings, petitions, motions, notices, transcripts, rulings, opinions, judgments, and orders.

WHO, Randy Kelton, DO YOU KNOW with that kind of knowledge and skill?  Certainly none of the pompous pretenders pontificating about mortgage litigation on TalkShoe beyond the point of embarrassment.

Let me tell you what I consider constitutes "HELPING" a mortgagor facing foreclosure:
  1. Tell him the truth that he deserves to lose the house for failing to make proper, timely monthly payments and/or maintain the property in accordance with the loan security instrument.
  2. Tell him the truth that his best way of negotiating a loan mod favorable to him OR of winning MONEY DAMAGES is to get a competent loan examination team to examine all the documents and circumstances having anything to do with that loan from day zero to present time, including litigation documents, to FIND the proof of his injuries, present the statement of injuries with evidence to the creditor and other injurious parties, then demand settlement or sue.
  3. Tell him the truth that hiring a team to do that can easily cost $5,000, and if he cannot afford that, then ...
  4. Tell him the truth that the honorable thing to do is to sell what he doesn't need, rent another dwelling, call 800-689-8684 (Allied Van Lines) to schedule the family's move, pack the household belongings, hand the keys to the creditor/servicer, shut off the utilities, and MOVE.
  5. Tell him the truth that attacking standing through responsive pleading or declaratory judgment / quiet title action will at best prolong the agony of loss of the property.
  6. Tell him the truth that short sale or deed in lieu of foreclosure are the best options if he cannot go on the attack, because those will minimize the damage to his credit rating.
  7. Tell him the truth that foreclosure defense through the courts will cost him money that he needs to save for moving his family, that he will ultimately lose, and that he will end up having to pay not only his own legal fees and costs, but also his adversary's legal fees and costs.
  8. Tell him the truth that a loan modification is ONLY for people who can actually pay their mortgage payments fully and timely, and it is not for mortgagors who must struggle to pay because the balloon that comes due will put them right back into foreclosure if they are typical.
  9. Tell him the truth that a foreclosure battle can damage him and his family emotionally, and even cause the family to break up.
If you sell your mortgage rescue services to people WITHOUT telling them all the above, then how does my warning people to beware of your service make ME "MEAN?"

Oh, you want to know WHO does that mortgage examination service that you cannot do because of your paucity of technical knowledge and meager experience?

Mortgage Fraud Examiners

I have yet to find ANY comparable service anywhere.

Winston Shrout Sentencing set for 26 Sept 2017

I have attached Winston Shrout's jury verdict, guilty on 19 counts -
  • 7 counts of making or producing a fictitious financial instrument
  • 3 counts of presenting or passing a fictitious financial instrument
  • 3  counts of mailing or shipping a fictitious financial instrument
  • 6 counts of willful failure to file an income tax return (for years 2009 - 2014)
Patriot Myth Monger Winston Shrout will spend years in prison (and possibly die there) for practicing what he preached - bogus methods of obtaining undeserved money and of not paying taxes.  He might have fared better by following David Myrland's or Pete Hendrickson's recommendations for avoiding payment of taxes one does not owe.  See below Winston Shrout's docket report as of today, from PACER.GOV.

If you have sat at the feet of a patriot myth monger, hanging on his every word, struggling to squeeze sense out of his preachments and absorb them into your being, pay heed to the fate of Winston Shrout.  We don't know its full impact on his life, and we certainly cannot envy it.  He could have avoided the fate had he not tried to "Trick" the system by embracing mythological nonsense about the US Government and our status and obligations under the law.

If you have followed a patriot myth monger, seek competent legal counsel before you get into serious trouble.

ORDER by Judge Robert E. Jones Granting First 53 Unopposed Motion to Continue Jury Trial Date as to Winston Shrout (1). The 6/07/2016 Jury Trial is STRICKEN and Jury Trial is RESET for 10/11/2016 at 09:00AM before Judge Robert E. Jones in Portland Courtroom 10A. This continuance constitutes excludable delay from 6/07/2016 through 10/11/2016, pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 3161(h)(7)(A). The court specifically finds, in granting the motion, that the ends of justice served by taking such action outweigh the best interests of the public and defendant in a speedy trial because the additional time is necessary to afford defense counsel sufficient time to investigate the facts of this case, to negotiate with the government, and to prepare for pretrial motions and jury trial, if necessary. The parties are to notify the court by 9/26/2016 as to whether or not this case is expected to go to trial. (bp) (Entered: 05/20/2016)
