    New GEI Coin Logo

    Haha. Seems crazy that it would take so long to change a LOGO< eh? Actually, DrBubb missed the expiry date on the Domain name, and then it took some time to get it renewed. I expect at least two years of smooth sailing now, so long as PC censors don;t find a way to shut this down

    One friend, has what he says is a Better idea: PLTR / Plantir > see chart HUGE VOL, on this stock, so how to trade it? Original idea, when the stock was $32 "Maybe sell PUTS, if you can stomach the risk, & are willing to own some... The $2.94 you get paid for Feb call, can be used to pay part of the price of a March call. Look for one which has a $2.94 or so, Time Value. maybe you can find one Then think about how that position will play out, and the flexibility it gives you." PLTR at $31.91, so $32 is ATM Strike: Feb.19== > Mid > Pct. / Mar.19 == > Mid > Pct. PUTS $35P: 4.80-5.25: 5.03, 00.0% $32P: 2.83-3.05: 2.94, 9.21% $30P: 1.80-1.87: 1.84, 00.0% $25P: 0.32-0.34: 0.33, 00.0% ==== maybe use the premium from PUT sale to subsidize the cost of Calls, covering the TV CALLS $35C: 0.00-0.00: 0.00, 00.0%/ 4.10-4.20: 4.15, $32C: 0.00-0.00: 0.00, 00.0%/ 5.10-5.20: 5.15, 16.1% $30C: 0.00-0.00: 0.00, 00.0%/ 5.80-6.15: 5.98, $25C: 0.00-0.00: 0.00, 00.0%/ 8.25-8.90: 8.58, ====

MUSK SHOT BTC, but excessive Regulation & Taxes could kill it / Weighing on bitcoin were the latest comments from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, stating that prices "seem high" after the digital currency hit the latest new record. Can crypto be taxed like gold? Is regulation the real threat to bitcoin's $1 trillion market cap Anna Golubova Monday February 22, 2021 . . . Regulations explained The existing oversight over bitcoin is a "patchwork of regulations" that varies from state to state, analysts told Kitco News. Here is a quick breakdown: • Virtual currency spot exchanges are overseen by State Banking regulators via state money transfer laws. • The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) treats virtual currencies as property, which is subject to capital gains tax. • The U.S. Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) is in charge of monitoring bitcoin's transfers for anti-money laundering activity. • The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has taken action against unregistered ICOs (initial coin offerings). • On the CFTC side, bitcoin has been declared a financial commodity, which means that the CFTC can regulate futures and other derivatives that are settled in bitcoin or are based on bitcoin. What this reveals is that there is no federal oversight of bitcoin's spot markets. "The companies that allow you to buy and sell bitcoin and then exchange it back into a fiat currency are essentially unregulated," said Elliot. "Their primary regulator is the state they operate, which use their own money-transmitter regulations." . . . WHO YOU SELL YOUR BTC TO - may become essential info "Now the Biden administration is rethinking how they want to move forward with that because it would not only require to 'know your customer,' but also their customer's counter-parties. This means if you got bitcoin from Coinbase, for example, they would have to know who you are, where you live, and addresses and names of who you subsequently send that bitcoin to." Yellen's comments, if they were to lead to additional regulation, would be made through FinCEN, Elliot added. "What's in the grey zone right now are exchanges where people are buying and selling bitcoin, which are basically not touched by the federal government. This is where you could see someone like Yellen testifying that the Treasury thinks it has a blind spot. That could lead to regulation in the future," Elliot stated. "It could be in the form of extending SEC and CFTC authority to exchanges that trade cryptocurrencies. I think a new regulator is very unlikely." > https://www.kitco.com/news/2021-02-22/Is-regulation-the-real-threat-to-bitcoin-s-1-trillion-market-cap-Can-crypto-be-taxed-like-gold.html
  6. MUSK SHOT BTC, but excessive Regulation & Taxes could kill it / Weighing on bitcoin were the latest comments from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, stating that prices "seem high" after the digital currency hit the latest new record. Can crypto be taxed like gold? Is regulation the real threat to bitcoin's $1 trillion market cap Anna Golubova Monday February 22, 2021 (Kitco News) As bitcoin continues to surprise with new milestones almost daily, are U.S. officials signaling that more regulation is coming, and is that a threat to this year's massive price rally? The crypto space has been all the rage so far this year, with bitcoin at its center. Yet, despite all the good news, there are signs of worry. After surpassing market capitalization of $1 trillion on Friday, bitcoin prices tumbled from new record highs of $58,000 back to $50,000 on Monday. At the time of writing, bitcoin was trading at $54,222.74, down 6.30% on the day. Weighing on bitcoin were the latest comments from Tesla CEO Elon Musk, stating that prices "seem high" after the digital currency hit the latest new record. But what about regulation? Could increased scrutiny from the U.S. officials trigger even a bigger selloff? . . .

Kunstler has built raised beds where he cultivates a dozen types of herbs, table greens and vegetables in a 5,000-square foot organic garden rich with compost and weed-free. He's also planted several varieties of berries and two dozen apple, pear and cherry trees. He's coaxed from this "stony and bony" soil a bumper crop, including a kohlrabi as big as his head.

  24. (Some Intriguing thoughts / from GaveKal Research): ==Demography & Savings== Q1: Who, in the Western World, has the worst savings rate? the US. Q2: Who has the highest savings’ rate? Japan, Italy and Germany… Q3: Who has the best demographic trends? the US. Q4: Who has the worst demographic trends? Japan, Italy, Germany… Putting it all together, we then pondered whether the fact that the highest savers in the world also have the worst demographics is a pure co-incidence? We concluded that it wasn’t, for the following reasons: Kids... cost money. So if nothing else, we should expect people that do not have kids to save more than people who do. Secondly, at different ages, people offer very different consumption patterns. Young people (and societies) tend to consume a lot of goods (TVs, cars, ovens…). Meanwhile older people tend to consume services (opera tickets, cruises, hip replacements…). Now in countries such as Japan, Germany, etc… the “expensive services” (namely healthcare) are delivered by a government monopoly. So what can old people do with their money except save it? Your average septuagenarian is not buying a flat screen or an ipod… Thirdly, and staying with the above idea, in most Western economies the social benefits (pensions, healthcare…) on which old people rely are typically dependent upon a growing population. Today’s young pay for today’s old in an intragenerational show of solidarity. But what happens when the young people start to disappear? Who then pays for the old people? This is not a moot point: in Japan, Germany and Italy, the populations have started to shrink. So one might think that people in these countries are right to save; for if they plan to rely on the payments’ from young people to see them through their old age, they will be mightily disappointed. In other words, given a) how most of our welfare states have been organized and the rapidly deteriorating demographic situation, people in the countries with ageing and shrinking populations need to save if they want to ensure a decent standard of living that the state will simply not provide. Finally, and just as importantly, having kids has historically always been a guarantee for one’s old age. Indeed, even though Victor Hugo once said: “a father can feed eight kids, but eight kids cannot feed one father”, people have often had kids to ensure that when they grow old, they will be taken care of (this, at least, has been Charles’ strategy and, so far, it seems to be working…). In other words, when you have kids, you don’t need to save as much since you have a “moral claim” on a small part of your children’s future earnings… = = (Methinks that is very dangerous thinking. What if the children do not honor that "moral claim"??)
