they're obviously technically skilled criminals, but demanding ransom payments in Bitcoin seems strange, as the movement of the coins, or parts thereof, can be tracked so simply on the blockchain. unmarked bank notes are a better method of payment when demanding a ransom, ime.

A daring strategy. I hope it pays off handsomely for them.
despite a sustained period of correction the result is that it is doing so AAAT.. x6? for the shareholders as a result of the allocating funds on the balance sheet to Bitcoin.

that will generate some activity, but i have better referrals than that for anyone interested in holding some bitcoin. potential to combine more than one promotion in fairness.

So you think that warnings by various central banks and financial regulators should be ignored?

And the nobel-winning economists who have described bitcoin as a bubble are mistaken?

central banks warning re Bitcoin? i'm not sure if you understand what it is haha

but anyway, basic research re the energy supply and how bitcoin is mined and gravitates naturally to the most efficient source would put anyone in a position to understand the subject matter and follow Cathy Wood's points.

and i don't know what you're referring to. i haven't written anything about ignoring "bubble" comments, but we can all see that huge quantities of fiat currency have been pushed into the system and have have lead inevitably into assets, including bitcoin. whether that will stop/in some way reverse, and see asset prices crash as a result, we shall see.. if that is to be the case then discussion re the best safe havens to weather the storm becomes very relevant.
