IF YOU BOUGHT $5 OF BITCOIN 7 YEARS AGO, YOU’D BE $4.4 MILLION RICHER

Bitcoin completely dominates over the USD after increasing almost 900,000 times in the last eight years.

Ever had a case where you wished you had bought something in the past that eventually went up significantly in value? Perhaps a plot in a low-value district which is now worth ten times more? Does that ring a bell? It seems the enormous rise of Bitcoin has been officially making ordinary people who invested in Bitcoin into millionaires.

Monday marked the seventh anniversary of what is said to be the first recorded instance of Bitcoins being used in a real-world transaction. Over the course of seven years, Bitcoin’s value has multiplied 879,999 times. If an investor had decided to spend five dollars on about 2,000 Bitcoins back then, that stake would be worth $4.4 million today. With $1,200 spent on some 480,000 Bitcoins, the investor would be worth at least $1.1 billion today.

At first, Bitcoin didn’t really catch on, and it was solely the domain of the early adopters. There were very few businesses which accepted bitcoin as a payment method, and it was something which was almost frowned upon by most governments. As more and more businesses and governments accepted bitcoin, it gradually went up in value, more and more people were starting to embrace the idea of a decentralized currency, and as more people jumped on board, the price began to rise. Since the beginning of the year 2017, the value of Bitcoin spiked after gaining legitimacy in countries like Japan.

Bitcoin is better than currency.” – Bill Gates

The main advantage of bitcoin is that it is decentralized – meaning, there’s no central bank or government which controls it. This freedom is one of the reasons why Investors have come to see the currency as something of a safe-haven-asset in a problematic geopolitical world — and there’s been plenty of that in recent months in Europe, Russia, Brazil and the United States. There is also an additional advantage in Bitcoin – there is a mathematical limitation to the number of Bitcoins that can be created, which means – no printing money, so the rules of economy work perfectly. Where there is a limited supply of something, and the demand goes up, the price goes up along with it.

Wences Casares has been called Bitcoin’s “patient zero” by the Silicon Valley elite. He got Bill Gates, Reid Hoffman, and countless other luminaries into Bitcoin at gatherings of the rich and famous such as Sun Valley.

The Argentinian-born Casares has founded an internet service provider, a video game company, and a bank, plus he sits on the board of PayPal, but it’s Bitcoin that Casares says he’s dedicating the rest of his life to, and he now runs a startup called Xapo that stores Bitcoin. At a dinner organized by the cryptocurrency policy group Coin Center in New York last night, Casares delivered the keynote speech, including some advice about how to get into Bitcoin.

Nicki Minaj is serving all kinds of hair goals

The days of religiously applying coconut oil to your hair in the hopes of it eventually reaching your buttocks is long gone. No one has the patience or time!

And Nicki Minaj is certainly serving us a sexy solution: the super, duper long weave. The No Frauds singer has been rocking the lengthy style for a few months now – in blonde, dark brunette and sometimes even sporting a pink-braided weave.

And then there was of course that video, which kick-started the viral #NickiMinajChallenge.

In the video, Nicki is fully-clad in a pink ensemble and a knee-length black weave.

“Attention. This is how bad b*****s leave London and go to Prague,” she tells the camera. “You b*****s can’t even spell Prague.”

With tons of sass like only Nicki can deliver, she turns around, flips her long locks and struts away.

The video, posted in June, started the Nicki Minaj Challenge, which saw celebs like Zoe Kravtiz and even Kylie Jenner having a go.
