The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Massive overnight surge in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies shoot industry market cap to over $100 billion

With so many economic and geo-political events causing confidence in local currencies to falter, overnight buying of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies out of Asia have skyrocketed the entire industry to achieve a milestone market cap of over $100 billion.

Bitcoin and Etherium are of course still leading the way as the father of all cryptos achieved a new all-time high (excluding local markets with high premiums) of over $2900 per coin.  And at this price, Bitcoin has risen over 200% since just the beginning of 2017.

Bitcoin approaches a new all-time high (ATH) in price and market cap as we re-enter a mode of price discovery. All of this occurs in the settling of an unresolved block size and scalability debate set to be disrupted with the UASF on August 1. Cryptocurrencies, as a whole, now hold over $100 billion in market cap for the first time. While bitcoin (BTC) leads the pack at just over $46.6 billion, or 47.9 percent of all cryptocurrencies, the recent surge in these other coins has helped to push the total cap over the top. - Bitcoin Magazine
In relation to other global markets, the market cap of cryptocurrencies is still relatively low when you compare them to several other markets, including a few of the major currencies traded in the Forex markets.

Gold: - $7,809,188,577,120

Forex: (Daily trading) - $5,300,000,000,000

S&P 500 - $20,000,000,000,000

Bitcoin's market cap is now larger than that of Germany's largest bank

With the extraordinary moves in price for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies since the beginning of the year, it was only a matter of time before their market caps began to compete with some of Wall Street's biggest companies.  However with the price more than doubling in just the past 20 days alone, an interesting fact has emerged that could soon shake the entire financial industry.

Because as of May 26, the market cap of Bitcoin is now greater than that of Germany's largest financial institution Deutsche Bank.
Bitcoin’s market cap is now $2 bln higher than that of Deutsche Bank, as an upwards price correction takes it over $40 bln once more. 
Data uploaded to Reddit shows Deutsche Bank’s market cap at €35 bln ($39 bln) and trending downwards, while Bitcoin has mostly recovered from yesterday’s losses, CoinMarketCap shows.

It is perhaps not as ironic as one would think that a completely virtual form of money would grow to have a larger global footprint than longstanding financial institutions that primarily deal in sovereign fiat currencies since the wealthiest industries today in regards to market cap are almost all tech companies listed on the S&P 500.  And it is also a signal to economies that digital forms of money are quickly supplanting the long-standing paradigms of physical cash ownership, and could soon become the standard just as robots soon replace workers in any myriad of industries.

Bitcoin is no longer the only crypto on the block as Etherium's currency Ether crosses over a $2 billion market cap

Ever since the creation of the crypto-currency Bitcoin came into the public sphere in 2009, dozens of other alternative digital currencies have attempted to follow Bitcoin's success.  But only one of course has made that critical leap into widespread confidence and acceptance, causing governments, markets, and even retailers to adapt to its growth.

Until now.

On March 14, just one day before the U.S. government faces a new debt limit crisis and the Federal Reserve is to decide upon whether to raise interest rates, a crypto-currency other than Bitcoin has reached a milestone by becoming only the second digital currency to achieve a market cap of over $2 billion.

A digital currency called ether has hit a record high market capitalization of more than $2 billion, a milestone only bitcoin has managed to pass. 
One ether currently trades for around $29, hitting a high of over $30 on Monday, according to price tracking website CryptoCompare. 
The figure marks an increase of nearly 20 percent from a week ago. The market cap of the cryptocurrency has surged from $1.8 billion to more than $2.57 billion in the same period. 
Ether was introduced in 2013 and runs on the Ethereum blockchain through the use of an underlying technology that is different to the one that powers bitcoin. - Russia Today

Pokemon Go: One of the best investments in history is about an application that produces nothing

You know that your society has reached the point of sheer affluence when one of the best performing investments in history comes from the creation of a virtual application that produces nothing of real value.

Today, more people could tell you what Kanye West's secret recording of a conversation with Taylor Swift was about than can name the new vice-presidential candidate under Donald Trump.  This is because the synergies that combined the fear of starvation with the ambition to succeed are no longer prevalent in our society, and time better spent on producing tangible goods and services has been replaced with the drive to simply be entertained.

Following the release of the newest global fad Pokemon Go, the Japanese company that had been wallowing in mediocrity for close to a decade suddenly skyrocketed to an all-time record market cap, and in the course of 10 days became one of the greatest investments in history.

All because of a virtual application that turns human beings into programmed zombies.

And when it comes to those who stand to profit from said Pokemon mania, nobody is a bigger winner than Nintendo which less than two years ago became a part-owner of Niantic creator Pokemon Go. 
We only have to look at the move in the stock price of Nintendo, which in just the past two weeks has more than doubled its market cap to over $42 billion, gaining some $22 billion in market cap. 
To calculate the return, let's generously assume that Nintendo was responsible for the entire $20mm initial investment (it was probably less). What a simple XIRR analysis reveals, is that the $22 billion boost in market cap relative to the $20 million initial investment is nothing short of a mindblowing 1,550,000% IRR, or a cash on cash return of 110,000% in less than one year. - Zerohedge

So in the near future when robots take over the jobs of an expected 15 million American workers, don't fret!  Because it will give them even more time to spend chasing around virtual pets on our nation's highways, over mountainous cliffs, and even along the edge of Hoover Dam.
