The Day the Dollar Died - Original Short Story

http://i.imgur.com/vHT74Z3.jpg Are You Prepared?!? Cathy stood waiting in line with her friend Kiera for her caramel macchiato at the Starbucks near her home. This had been part of their Saturday ritual for the last 5 years, getting some good coffee and talking about what's gone on during the last ...

What is Cryptocurrency and Why It's Not Scary

I've been preaching the word of Steemit pretty much since I started here a couple months back. Many people have been willing to listen, see my page and my payouts, and know that earning have been successfully cashed out and used to pay for things like groceries, mortgage payment, etc. The most diff...

Crypto News: Central EU Bank Fears Rise of Crypto

A couple of days ago the European Central Bank (ECB) put out a legal opinion to the European Parliament and Council that it wants EU lawmakers to tighten proposed new rules on digital currencies such as bitcoin, fearing they might one day weaken its own control over money supply in the euro zone. So...

Re: Does having a higher bankroll would increase the winning chance on doing gambling?

I've not tried the casino/ video poker just yet. Looks fun though. I used to do a ton of online tournaments back in the day though. I've been itching to play again

Re: Liberland

iFixBTCmemoryIssues -- Thank you! I really tried to do Liberland well deserved justice with this piece and was really a lot of fun to research.

Re: Does having a higher bankroll would increase the winning chance on doing gambling?

Thank you! I almost always down for poker. It's something I really miss. I did get to play on some tables in YRgrid a friend setup..took micro btc payments. I wasn't my usual setup but it worked, and fell into it pretty quick. I don't know if there is a tourney at games.bitcoin.com yet..just saw the...

Re: Chinese paper says should prepare for South China Sea armed clash

I remember hearing about this a while back and don't ever remember any military action occuring, just posturing. But I'm curious, have tensions died down at all? It's only plastered on the news a day or two and then nothing. Has there been any movement towards de-escalation? Anyhoo, off to google I ...

Re: Liberland

This is actually the first I've heard of this new country, so please forgive my ignorance. I'm assuming the 'knowledge is power' is along the lines of spreading awareness of Liberland's existence and foundations like their motto of live and let live. I'll probably publish an article on the country i...

Re: Causes of death 100 years ago vs. today.

Wow, while it makes sense seeing the HUGE flip from Infectious Diseases to Cancer, it's still shocking. Not something I really think about much, but the charts prompt it. One the one hand, by controlling the diseases and other advancements we generally live longer, giving rise to the likelihood of c...

Re: Does having a higher bankroll would increase the winning chance on doing gambling?

First let me say that this was just my method...it's really about finding what works best for you. I played online some years back and started with putting $50 USD, which I lost, another 50...basically ended up being the 6th deposit of fifty where I hit my stride. I played different level tournament...

Re: Silk Road: A Precursor To The Brave New World

This was a fascinating read, thank you for posting it! I'm a complete noob to crypto so while I'd heard of Silk Road, the shut down, and people getting imprisoned, I really never thought about that being done on a decentralized system. This makes sense now (great comparison of Naptser to torrents) a...

Re: My thoughts on the presidential debate.

They can only be summed up by a scene from Billy Madison. This described how I felt about the 'debate' (if you can really even call it that) perfectly. I've never expected politician to say much, but in this so-called debate, they said next to nothing. I felt like I was watching a couple of 10 year...

Again this is just phenomenal and in depth. I completely agree in the need of balancing and/or finding the win/win between self and collective interest. It really seems like so many people I've come across include very few people in their 'collective' circle, usually family, some friends, etc. I wil...

I know your post mainly referenced that things were getting reset in this game, but having not played myself before and being a fan of many card games I just had to check this out!

I thought it might be helpful to toss this in here: https://coinatmradar.com/
The Bitcoin ATM Map that was at coindesk is no longer being maintained and was moved to this new address.

I hope you find a good method that works for you!
