My cost on ETC is in the black, and ETH and BCH are also very close to being in the black, again, trying to recoup total costs of graphics cards and the like.

Is there anybody interested in earning free crypto? Coinbase is giving away Stellar Lumins (XLM) for free if you go through their training course, you can earn up to $50 free.

Bitcoin bouncing around 9200, Pretty good returns for anybody who bought a few months ago. I've almost tripled my money on quite a few of my buys.

I sold all my cryptocurrency(except the stuff they gave me for free but don't deal in) a few days ago after talking with my mom and hearing her worries about it. While the stuff is rather cool, and I think I made a little money off it(bought while bitcoin was around 7k, sold not long after it cleared 10k), there's prophecies about a single world currency and the whole mark of the beast thing which, while I won't get into those now, it does provide some concern for some of us. Plus I'm not too hardcore of a techie anyway. Might get a little into stocks though.

I don't know anything about the 2nd part of what you said. That sounds a bit like crazy talk to me... BUT going from 7-10K should have netted a nice profit if you had much in it.

as far as crypto's, it's just the future/evolution of money. I work for a major financial institution, and we're working hard to implement blockchain stuff on the back end. Doing so will reduce costs, and making the transfer of money MUCH MUCH faster, which reduces costs again. It also adds a lot of security and privacy to our money.

Didn't check how much I initially invested into the various cryptocurrencies, but the sale was a little over 1k. Enough for a shiny new exhaust for my Impala.

As for the other bit, the most I'll mention here is that it's found in the book of Revelation at the end of the New Testament(in the Bible, yes). I know not everybody agrees with me on this, but it contains most of the not yet fulfilled prophecies in the Bible, and there's a few things in which it'd be wiser to err on the side of caution. If you wanna discuss further, you have my contact profile via facebook and this forum, and can easily use either discuss it with me further(if you wish) without hijacking your thread.

Feel free to start a different thread if you want to reply. But I'm a Christian. I read through the bible at least once a year, in addition to other studies. This is crazy talk. Seriously. It says nothing about a one world currency. or even a single world government. It just doesn't. It talks about having to be marked to buy/sell... but that is something totally completely different. You need to tell your mom to stop believing what she reads on facebook/the internet...

Until we actually are living in that time, we won't know what those things will even mean. our focus should be on what we can control. Ourselves, our faith in Jesus Christ, Love for our fellow man, and Repentance. anything outside of that... Bantha poodoo.

Please do ... my curiosity is sparked on this

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky, who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer and burn and scream until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

Lol, we get you into a thread about Bible-related stuff, croat, and it'll end up in the local abyss. That's why I was just trying to say what was relevant to the conversation as far as selling my crypto, and leave it at that. Don't wanna be chasing any rabbits.

I've had my eth miner going for a while, and its made me some cash, but Hoping to hit it bigger with bit coin (and not have such a hot office). My investment of $2300 should net me a little more than $700/month, which will grow with the auto reinvest.
I work in cybersecurity, my personal take on cloud mining is that it's a scam. It is like buying stock in gold instead of actual gold. If you look at the numbers there is way more stock out there than actual gold supply, which means a whole bunch of people will be scammed. Mining is fine but do it in house with a coin that will still turn a profit after calculating the increase in your electric bill. The current Chinese tariffs are starting to boost the prices of crypto again which is good for mining. I would never do cloud mining, someone has to pay the energy costs and there isn't enough profit to pay everyone right now.

I made money cloud mining when I first posted this... well over a year and a half ago, but quit mining all together last summer when prices crashed, and just started buying one of 4 cryptos (btc, bch, eth, and etc). And I've done VERY well with all but bch. I have changed my mind, and will continue to buy cryptos over time.

I'm all profit right now, except on bch, but i'm really close there ( I bought a bunch when it was over $2000+...). but I'll hit a 100% profit and have exactly enough money to pay off my car and leave some coin left over. I'll have a much higher buy in, once I get that car paid off, but then I'll be debt free, other than my house again. and that is more important to me.
