    · Bitcoin Crypto Mastermind

    “3 billion people on this planet have no access to financial services. Another 2+ billion with limited access. Cryptocurrency will democratize the global financial system where every human being will have equal access to money.” - Brock Pierce Storing cryptocurrency can be risky if the right precaution isn’t taken. Never before has there been such a valuable digital good. Our Internet is not built to safely house cryptos moving through the network. So, we must follow a strict protocol when creating our own infrastructure to house its value. On today’s episode of The Tai Lopez Show, we have cryptocurrency-expert, Brock Pierce. Brock is the Chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation, cofounder of Blockchain Capital, and has been in the digital currency game for the past 20 years.

    · Bitcoin Crypto Mastermind

    “The promise of a decentralized world is how can we have the same benefits we are used to getting from centralized entities, but in a decentralized way where the power remains in the people.” (click to tweet) All industries are centralized. To grow and scale, a company or entity must form some sort of governing board that sits at the top of the hierarchy. There, at the top of the pyramid, decisions are made and passed down through the rest of the network. This is how the model has historically worked since the Industrial Revolution, but now blockchain technology aims to change that. On today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind show, we are joined by Nick Spanos. He is the Founder of Bitcoin Center 2013 and Former Director of Contract of Ron Paul 2012.

    The Crypto With 7 Years of Active Code

    · Bitcoin Crypto Mastermind

    “When you can see that the coin is solving massive world problems, has positive media press, and there’s active code; those are coins to keep an eye on.” - Ben Oberg (click to tweet) Active code means that developers are working to improve the crypto. So many cryptos don’t have active code, which causes their technology to become stale. What happens is a competitor will pass them or bugs start to infect the network. Among the factors to research in a coin before investing in it, active code is one of the most important, if not the most important. On today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind Show, we are joined by crypto-expert Ben Oberg to discuss the difference between get-rich tokens and actual technologies that are fighting to disrupt big industries. He mentions Siacoin and DigiByte as 2 coins worth looking into for your next investment. Tune in to hear his reasoning! This is a snippet from the Tai Lopez’ paid Bitcoin Mentor Mastermind program.

    “Education is the biggest opportunity for crypto. Is Blockchain the catalyst that finally causes change?” - Trevor Koverko (click to tweet) Most people in crypto don’t know what they’re talking about. Often times, we find ourselves stuck in circles of conversations where each person is speaking from a place of ignorance.

    · Bitcoin Crypto Mastermind

    “No offense to Ripple, but is wiring money the thing that’s going to change our world? Where’s the biomedical ICO that makes it so pharmaceutical companies don’t have a monopoly?” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) The token is just the thing that empowers the network to participate in the technology. So are you in it for the technology or the prospect of your token rising in price? This is the debate every crypto investor should be having with themselves. Once you become invested in just the profits, you lose sight of the greater blockchain mission, which is a necessary element of participating in this movement. On today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind Show, we are discussing the further applications of blockchain technology.

    35% of $400 Billion: Why Bitcoin Dominance Fluctuates

    · Bitcoin Crypto Mastermind

    “People like to move these assets from the very speculative alt coins back into Bitcoin. If people feel uncertain, they invest in Bitcoin.” (click to tweet) Think of the cryptocurrency market as a pizza a pie. As more and more cryptocurrencies are released to the market, the pie grows. More money is being invested in cryptocurrency as a whole. But how much of the pie is a Bitcoin slice? At the end of 2017, when Bitcoin was at it’s all-time high around $20,000, we saw the Bitcoin slice occupying its smallest percentage. On today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind Show, we are discussing Bitcoin dominance. As the price of Bitcoin increases, people gain confidence in cryptocurrency as an asset, and invest in alt coins with their Bitcoin profits.

    “Crypto shouldn’t be perceived as a ‘get-rich’ thing but that’s what’s happening.” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet) Cryptocurrency has entered an interesting phase. As the price of Bitcoin continues to fall, more and more coins are released to the public. And the buzz surrounding cryptocurrency seem to be tapering off. So what do we make of these seemingly contrasting trends? On today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind Show, we are joined by multiple panels of experts to discuss the current climate in the cryptocurrency space.

    “Solve the real problems. What are the biggest problems people have? People are depressed, people are anxious, people are broke, people are unhealthy. We need to see more crypto projects in the biomedical industry.” - Tai Lopez (click to tweet)  There are coins other than Bitcoin. But we are continuously bombarded with the latest news about Bitcoin. With its recent falling price, it’s easy to get caught up in the mass hysteria and forget about the bigger applications of blockchain technology. On today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind show, we are taking a moment to revisit some of the other coins in the conversation.

You can’t tell how many people have it. So it will go up.”     (click to tweet) Points to Keep In Mind Siacoin is like the AirBnB of cloud storage Sidechain will make Bitcoin transactions more affordable We need to welcome new people to crypto to activate ‘the network effect’ The downside with Binance is Chinese investigators crack the whip out of nowhere As long as Binance is around, it’s smart to invest in Asian currencies RaiBlocks (XRP) has a $2.4 billion market cap Try to buy when the coin is low volume before it moves sideways Tron (TRX) peaked at $13 billion market cap Trying to be an entertainment ecosystem like YouTube but lacks user base Litecoin announced a partnership with Monero a few days ago Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin are in a public smearing debate Litecoin over Bitcoin Cash because of better press Don’t speculate purely on upside potential As long as Bitcoin is big, Litecoin will be big too Real estate is the biggest market around Focus on the team when making crypto investments Bitcoin Cash moves in the opposite direction of Bitcoin The real trick to diversifying is finding things that are uncorrelated Always go after the unsexy businesses/coins There’s opportunity for influencer coins (ex: A Kim Kardashian coin that fractionalizes access to her brand/TV show) The biggest opportunity in crypto is in the biomedical industry

    “Education is the biggest opportunity for crypto. Is Blockchain the catalyst that finally causes change?” - Trevor Koverko (click to tweet) Incentivization doesn’t exist in education. The Board of Education is not incentivized to create engaging systems, teachers aren’t incentivized to go above and beyond, and the students themselves aren’t motivated to push their academic progress. Cryptocurrency could change all of this by decentralizing the powers at hand. Suddenly all parties would operate inside an economic exchange that would promote our youth’s intellectual development. On today’s episode of The Bitcoin Crypto Mentor Mastermind show, we are joined by Trevor Koverko, the founder and CEO of Polymath. While Trevor has made a killing in the crypto space, his vision for blockchain technology is far beyond a get-rich-quick scheme.
