With all of the recent news and excitement circling around Bitcoin, its hard to ignore the gigantic price increases the coin has seen this year alone. I am grateful to have been introduced early in 2017 and we invested limited resources. Thus far this year our investment has more than tripled.

Invest in Your Future
I have recently began investing and planning for our financial future with high hopes. A bright future lays ahead, with forward thinking and planning today. Early on the focus was on developing skills to be successful in the future. Today, I would like to use past skills and experiences to better my financial future.
I believe that starts with planning for future needs and desires today. Simple questions like where do want to live or how will I secure food and water. Today we are uncertain if the city life is for us; we are planning a future countryside homestead and ranch lifestyle.
Our Investment Strategy
Until recently, our major focus was on paying off the remainder of my student loans. Most often the interest rates are unreasonably high and keep you struggling financially for many years. I could better afford the payments today, but the years immediately after college were challenging. Credit card payments are unnecessary when I would rather be investing the money wisely and letting it work for me instead.
One of my favorite personal financial blogs has been recommending Bitcoin for years now, since 2014 to be exact. The website features a narrative that opposes nationalized world currencies. Nationalized currencies create borders, draw lines of separation between people and facilitate conflict. In turn, it promotes a constant competition for the wealth of individual nations.
I currently favor a financial savings featuring precious metals, short liquid assets, cash and Bitcoin. Our desired portfolio today looks something like this:
We believe the economy is currently reaching a peak state and that we will be approaching a steep decline in the near future. It signifies tough times, but only for those unprepared.
As a result, my understanding is that we are headed into the greatest opportunity to make money with your current savings. Utilizing your cash flow effectively can earn significant profits in todays’ world.
We don’t believe that banks are the safest place to store your entire savings. What if they close in conjunction with the economy crash? The FDIC backing will no longer protect your savings. This is what happened in the Great Depression. Banks closed and people lost their savings. Today, Banks offer little to no interest for holding your hard earned money.
The United States are not the only nation to suffer sever depression. Nearly every nation has seen their currency inflate and deflate. Its when the value crashes, that the people suffer drastically and the cost of everything skyrockets.
Today we rely heavily on the US Dollar backed debt economy. Every kind of loan is out in the world stacked on top of each other, just like a house of cards waiting to collapse.
For this very reason, I advocate the cash shoebox strategy. When the crash comes, cash will have significantly more value and the Great Wealth Transfer will occur.
How I started with Bitcoin?
Buying and using digital currency is not as easy as it could and should be. Today, Bitcoin is more accessible and easy to use than ever. Core developers maintain Bitcoin.org; it offers a great Getting Started Guide on how to get up and running.
Coinbase.com is the easiest way to start using Bitcoin. Coinbase allows you to buy Bitcoin directly from your bank account or credit card, store your coins in an online wallet, and pay using Bitcoin for a large number of merchants from Overstock.com to Home Depot, CVS, Kmart and Amazon. If you sign up now here, you will get $10 on your account to buy Bitcoin.
Use Smartphone Wallets for Daily Expenditures
“If you don’t control your money, it’s not your money.” Transfer a small allowance to a smartphone wallet like Coinbase for daily expenditures. During Grexit, banks withdrawals had a 60 euros limit; the rate was higher for Bitcoin ATMs.
The Coinbase app is super user friendly. You can make purchases, send, receive and more. It’s the easiest way to purchase Bitcoin from your bank account. Coinbase offers the simplest way to buy Bitcoin, Ether and Litecoin. I have had a lot of success so far. You can read this post for more information about why we invest in Bitcoin today.
Connect with Other Bitcoin Users in the Local Community
LocalBitcoins is a fantastic resource to find people nearby willing to buy your Bitcoin for a nationalized fiat currency. Searching for local Bitcoin Meetup groups is another fantastic resource to meet others. In addition, introduce yourself on local Facebook Bitcoin groups to get more helpful tips. Local groups can also help guide you to websites or smartphone Bitcoin apps based in that city or country.
The stock market is inflated and the wealth must be distributed more effectively to sustain overall economic growth. That is why Bitcoin has exploded so quickly onto the free market. The Great Wealth Transfer is upon us!
