Bitcoin Bubble Officially the Largest in Human History

Its supporters are loath to hear the word, but an increasing number of economic analysts are tracking what is known as the Bitcoin Bubble. The idea went viral last month when Convoy Investments formulated a chart tracking the relative worth of various economic bubbles in human history, stretching back hundreds of years, and marked out the largest and, frequently, most destructive. One month later and Bitcoin’s value has continued to increase, and Convoy has released an updated chart depicting the relative positions again.

Bitcoin is now worth 64 times what it was three years ago, officially passing “Tulip Mania” of the 17th century. Howard Wang and Robert Wu, who are the principals of Convoy, highlighted that Bitcoin has near doubled since the chart made last month. Strikingly, it has grown at five times the rate of the infamous South Seas bubble of the 18th century, a crash so enormous the government of the United Kingdom still pays debt on the catastrophe.

There are other words of warning, things like Bitcoin Futures and Derivatives have popped up recently, warning signs for most long-term investors.

There is some wiggleroom. Mike Novogratz, an expert pioneer in crypto-currencies, has stated he believes Bitcoin to easily reach $40,000 before it finally bursts. That’s still a fair amount to grow from its current position just under $20,000, and enough time for the squeamish to save their skins. All that remains hidden is how far the crash will fall.

Republicans Want to Add Work Requirements for Federal Benefits

It is possible that Senate Republicans and the Trump Administration will start pushing for new economic policies that encourage poor people to work. Many poor people receive various benefits from the government, regardless of whether they work or not. However, Trump has previously complained about people who do not work and generate more income through welfare than people who do work and generate income through their paycheck.

Senator Orrin Hatch also said that he is unwilling to help people who do not help themselves.

The Republicans tried to get states to add work requirements to Medicaid. Trump is also encouraging states to add work requirements for benefits such as food stamps. Other government officials have said that getting people to be self sufficient is the ultimate way to helping them.

However, as CNN reports, many people on welfare can not work. Some are children. Some are senior citizens who are too old to work. Others are disabled and can not work.

Of those who are of working age, forty percent do work or are students. Experts have weighed in and said that most people on welfare either can not work or do work and still do not earn enough to live on. The reason for this often lies with the low minimum wage. It is rare for people to actually sit around and not work and still get welfare just because they can.

How Trading Schools Can Be Successful

If you want to be a successful Trader, and you do not have any experience yet, then you have a problem. The problem is that there are not that many schools that you can go to to become a successful trader. There are no programs and schools like there are for athletes that you can attend. As a result, many traders end up failing. However, there are a few financial schools that teach trading. For such a school to be successful, it needs to have the following components.

First, there needs to be a structured curriculum. To see how this is necessary, take a look at how medical schools are structured. First, students learn about the science of the medicine. They then attend advanced programs that help them develop hands-on skills through observation and assistance. Trading schools should have various stages of development.

Another component can be taken from athletics. For athletes to be successful, they need to have a coach. Having a mentor and a personal trainer can help traders be successful.

Traders also need to be familiar with trading terms. For beginners, trading terms can be complex and confusing. A trading school should teach beginner traders all the various terms. Medical schools need to do the same thing with medical jargon.

Trading schools might want to consider only including qualified students who possess the skills to be successful. Alternatively, they can create separate programs for high-level students.
