27037142_sHey everyone and welcome to my review of Greg Marks’ new binary trading software, “Legal Insider Bot”.  If you’re interested in binary options, you may want to check one out. (Here’s the official site where you can get the software for free!)

Here’s the deal on binary options trading software: technology has advanced to the point where there are high quality auto traders out there that are capable of achieving impressive win rates.  When I first heard about Greg Marks’ software I was eager to check it out given his background. After all, he’s an expert in binary options with twelve years experience and has managed $45million in funds.

The Basics On What You Get With This Software …

The first thing you’ll notice right off the bat is that it’s completely free to register, download and install the software. The other thing I noticed is that based on user reviews, this particular software has a great customer support team.  This is a key feature in my opinion and is bound to be a huge benefit for both newbies and experienced traders alike.

Okay, let’s get down to the most important feature—the win rate. From what I’ve seen, it’s flat out impressive. Specifically, based on the figures I’ve seen, it’s around 90%.  That’s pretty damn good, but here’s what really sets this one apart in my opinion:  Marks has reached an agreement with brokers to insure users losses for up to $500,000.  Wow.  I’ll admit, this feature just surprised me to say the least.  Basically, because losses are insured, there’s absolutely no reason not to give the software a test drive to see how it works for you.


Basically, you don’t need to know anything about binary options to take full advantage of this software. The algorithm is designed to do all the work for you, which means there’s no need to have even a basic understanding of Bollinger Bands, Stochastic Oscillator analysis, or other market concepts.  Obviously, this is a fully automated software.  I just don’t have time to worry about market trends to make trades, so this is perfect for my needs.


Well, of course there’s an inherent risk in binary options. As anyone who’s looked into binary options knows, however, what makes it so exciting is the possibility of high returns. I don’t know about you guys, but I like my chances in binary option trading when I have a highly sophisticated and precise algorithm engineered for accuracy.


In the end, I would highly recommend this software for anyone interested in binary options trading.  If you’re concerned about the risk involved, I would recommend checking it out and giving it a test run since Marks’ team has promised to insure losses up to $500k.  A no-brainer in my opinion.

Bosses suck!

We’ve all been there. You start a job. Everything is going great, but then you realize to your horror  that your boss is an incredible jerk who is making your life a nightmare!

This is a real problem for so many people. Trust me, I know, it’s not easy to deal with.

In fact, I’ve had more than one boss who was a bully who used his position of authority to treat people like worthless subhuman worker drones.

The first thing you need to do is get inside the head of this particular kind of person. By this, what I mean is you have to try and figure out why is he or she acting this way. The first step to dealing with a boss who’s a jerk is understanding the psychology of such a person.

Unfortunately, no matter how awesome the job is, dealing with a bully in the workplace can poison the entire atmosphere, kill your morale, lead to poor performance, and even cause problems in your personal life.

Different states have different levels of protection for this sort of thing through various labor laws and the like. Some are more comprehensive and employee-friendly than others. It’s important to understand however that in today’s day and age, no one should put up with bullying or inappropriate behavior from a superior and every state has at least a certain baseline level of legal protection for such behavior.

The first thing you need to do is to remain calm and professional. Never let your emotions get in the way. At the end of the day, it is the boss who is acting unprofessionally and you should never ever provide any fodder for him or her to make any claim against your ability to be a good employee.

It is important to keep a log of each act of inappropriate behavior. And then report the log to the Human Resources Department. HR is obligated to deal with such issues in a very structured and fair manner.

The most important thing, and this cannot be stressed enough, is never reduce yourself to his or her level of unprofessionalism. Even if you decide you have to leave that particular place of employment due to your boss’s horrible behavior, you will be sure to have a much easier time getting a new job so long as you maintained the ability to keep cool and professional with your work and churned out good work product.



Inbox Blueprint… Does It Live Up To The HYPE???

Hey everyone, welcome to my review of “Inbox Blueprint” the newly released 2.0 version…

This is a review, Click Here For The Official Inbox Blueprint Website…

I’ve been involved in internet marketing for a few years now and there’s simply no way of getting around it… email marketing is KEY to scaling your online business.

However, as many of you know, building email marketing campaigns from the ground up can seem to be a pretty daunting task if you’ve never done it before, so when I learned about the upcoming launch of Anik’s revamped email course, I was eager to do a review for you guys.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Anik, he’s a pretty well-known expert in the internet marketing world who’s enjoyed a lot of success in this business and his previous courses have generated a lot of positive feedback.

My hope is that this review will cover all the bases of his latest training course so you’ll be able to make an informed decision as to whether you think it will help you take your business to the next level.

Ok, So What’s Anik’s Program All About?

The course is billed as a newbie-friendly A to Z guide to email marketing that gives you all the tools necessary to build and sustain a successful email marketing business.

Like I said, I completely agree with Anik on the fact that email marketing is where it’s at… So obviously if you are somebody looking to scale or maybe just start your online business, then this course is absolutely worth checking out.

What’s cool about email marketing is that you don’t have to worry about search engine updates screwing up your sites or pay-per click campaigns getting disapproved or shut down. With Email marketing, YOU control your own destiny!  So, this is definitely a topic that anyone interested in internet marketing, for the long haul should take an interest in.

Anyway, Here Are The Basic Details of The Course …

First of all, when you sign up for the course, you get instant access to the course via a members-only portal. The course is broken down into eight steps and each step contains several video modules, templates, and a ton of data and research on topics such as how to pick the right niche and top affiliate programs, etc.

The course’s eight steps include (1) choosing the most profitable niche site, (2) creating a web page to collect email from potential customers who are interested, (3) using Anik’s “TYP (thank you page) method” which is a completely automated method to generate sales from day one by showing subscribers offers on the “thank you” page immediately after they opt-in, (4) correct usage for email auto-responders, (5) building email content and sustaining audience interest, (6) promoting offers, (7) generating new traffic, and (8) how to make sure your campaign is successful and self-sustaining.

There’s also a ton of bonus material, which you can check out for yourself by clicking here.

My Favorite Things About The Program…

There’s a lot… For starters, I really liked that there are so many templates that you can basically use as a blueprint for own business model, which just makes it so easy for you to ramp up your biz. This is an especially helpful feature for those starting out because it does so much of the heavy lifting for you.

I also liked that the course had a TON of research and data, especially on how to set up your “landing page” (otherwise known as your “squeeze page” or “opt-in page”) to optimize conversions, because this is such a crucial part of setting up your email campaigns and it’s something most courses I’ve seen really don’t spend enough time on.

Is it Worth Checking Out?

That depends, if you’re already killing it with your email list, then you’re doing pretty well on your own and you probably don’t need the course.

If on the other hand you are just getting started or you’re still in the early stages (under 10K a month or so) and looking to scale your existing business… then YES, in my opinion this course will be a hugely beneficial resource.

If that sounds like you then I’d highly recommend focusing the majority of you efforts into building your email list and maximizing the revenue you are able to pull from that list on an ongoing basis. And Anik’s course is the best, and most user friendly “bluprint” for successful email marketing that I have seen to date…

Sure, their are other email marketing courses out there, but I found that those are better suited for peiople who are already pretty advanced and who are more interested in learning about advanced copywriting and persuasion techniques, so they aren’t really suitable for folks who are just getting started…

With Inbox Blueprint you don’t need to have any experience at all to get started since Anik walks you through each step.  In the end, if you’re looking for a way to scale your business and sustain growth, you should absolutely check out this email marketing course.

Even this doofus knows, skinny jeans are WHACK player!

Even this doofus knows, skinny jeans are WHACK player!

Skinny Jeans are considered by many to be the uniform de jure for hipsters around the world. Some call them “nut huggers,” but basically, they’re just really tight pants or jeans that have come into fashion in recent years. If you’re a guy looking to enhance your wardrobe to make you more fashionable and perhaps land a date with a pretty lady, you may have considered the question—are skinny jeans manly?

Living in San Francisco, I’ve seen my fair share of skinny little hipsters sauntering up and down the street in their little skinny pants. Indeed, I’ve been shocked to see hot babes hanging out with such dweeby looking sissy boys. That got me thinking—has our society changed so much that women are now attracted to these guys over the traditional macho man with muscles? It’s a question that intrigued me so I thought I’d look into this phenomenon and do a post on it and where this trend may be taking us in the future.

From what I can gather, it appear that the skinny jeans trend has its start with the rise of the metrosexual. The metrosexual is a term that has come to define a movement where men began to focus more on fashion and grooming than ever before. It was once the case that to be “manly” was to not concern yourself with fashion trends or grooming. Rather, a true “manly” man was one who could build things and protect his lady from any potential threat or insult. That all changed with the rise of the metrosexual man, which is primarily an urban construct.

Anyway, in the 1990s baggy jeans were all the rage amongst those interested in keeping up with fashion trends. Something interesting happened in the mid-2000s though… skinny jeans started appearing. It’s sort of a rocker/skater look that seemed to drive some white chicks crazy. And because skinny jeans could only be worn, for the most part, by skinny dudes, the trend appeared to be limited to those who had the right build for such tight pants. In other words, if you were a big dude or even a guy who’s considered of average height and build, skinny jeans were impossible because they were just way too uncomfortable. That meant that this rocker/skater look that had the girls going wild over was limited to the skinny effeminate guys who previously never got a second look from girls.

So here we are in the year 2014 and the question becomes—if you’re looking to score a hot babe, are you going to have to start wearing skinny jeans!? It’s a legitimate question given the fact that if you just look around you’re bound to see a hot chick on the arm of a skinny jean wearing twinkle toes at some point on the streets of New York or LA or San Francisco.

The answer to that question depends on a number of factors. For starters, if you’re a big guy, there’s simply no way you can even attempt this. I saw a big dude in skinny jeans once and I thought it was a chick from the back. Scary. If you’ve got a build that is just too big for skinny jeans, you’re better off getting slim fitting or tailored pants that do not hug the legs too tight but are also fitted so that they are fashionable.

Now, if you’re a relatively skinny guy and you’re interested in donning a hipster uniform to trick some hot tattoo covered hipster chick into thinking you’re a hipster who knows all the cool underground bands and all sorts of other cool things then go for it! Why not? I mean, no one else will know you’re a completely fraud and the reality is that most of the skinny jean wearing little wannabee rockers you see are simply doing the same thing!

In the end, yes, skinny jeans and skinny pants are for girly men, but guess what that’s what a lot of hot chicks like these days. Think about it like this—back in the 1700s men ran around in stockings… now that’s some girly-man sissy shit. But hey, you can’t say they weren’t getting laid all the time. Women loved that back in the day. So the man stockings of the 1700s are the skinny jeans of today. So, I say go for it and get yourself a nice tight pair of pants and good luck out there! Be careful though, because they don’t call them “nut huggers” for no reason… they can reduce your sperm count and maybe damage your balls.

fenceThe American Dream is what we’ve been taught since an early age makes the United States an exceptional place to live, and home ownership has always been a key part of this dream. However, events in recent years has not only shaken the American Dream to its core, but has also caused a lot of people to rethink what the “American Dream” is all about as we move forward.

When we think about what the American Dream really means, a few key things come to mind. First, it’s about social mobility. The idea is that this is a meritocracy and if you work hard enough, you’re bound to succeed on the merits of your work. A necessary part of that is home ownership, at least according to the traditional notion. But is that really necessary anymore? The reality is that in recent years most people have looked at home ownership as an investment opportunity.

Many have argued that as our economy has become more and more sophisticated and with advances in modern telecommunications and the internet, there are so many new ways to achieve the “American Dream” without the need for traditional home ownership.

It used to be the case that only institutional and moneyed investors were able to invest in the stock market or utilize some other form of investment vehicle to generate income. That’s no longer the case. These days, anyone with a laptop and an internet connection is capable of investing and trading in a wide range of things.

So instead of using the traditional notion of home ownership as an appreciating asset, many argue, why not invest and trade in binary options, forex, or even alternative currencies such as Bitcoin? This may not be as crazy as it sounds given how the mortgage meltdown resulted in millions of Americans losing everything including their savings in such as short amount of time. At a time where most middle class families are being priced out of the real estate markets across the country, we may have to revise what we mean when we consider what the American Dream actually means. It’s simply no longer the case that the median income level earners can buy a decent home in many cities across the US.

San Francisco is ground zero for the housing market bubble. The median home price in San Francisco is well over $900,000 and for first time home buyers, they’re often priced out of the market because investors can swoop in and make cash offers well over the listing price. Ultimately, this raises the question, is the idea of home ownership even feasible for most people in many cities across the US now?

For this reason, people have got to start thinking outside the box when it comes to getting ahead. Otherwise, this country will face an ever-widening gap between the haves and the have-nots.

Basically, the silver lining here is that technology has the potential of saving the day. Technology provides freedom of choice when it comes to investment opportunities, which may be the only way to save the American Dream. This may truly be the saving grace of our time. All you need is a laptop and an Internet connection and you can generate income through investing and trading online. So, in a way, the reality of modern economy presents a double-edged sword. On the one hand, the tech bubble led to a housing bubble, which continues to this day. On the other hand, we have so much more freedom when it comes to deciding how we want to invest our money.

Therefore, some have argued that, perhaps the future of the American Dream should not focus so much on home ownership, but should instead focus on social mobility, and what that means in today’s world. After all, as I mentioned, that’s what the American Dream is all about—social mobility. It’s time we’ve had an honest conversation about this and stop living in the twenty-first century as if it were still the twentieth century. I truly believe this is the only way we are going to continue to thrive as a society!



For those of you who’ve experienced a panic attack before, you know how disruptive they can be and how much of a negative impact they can have on your overall quality of life. Anna Gibson-Steel, a licensed therapist and best selling-author,and a former sufferer of panic attacks herself has claimed to develop and perfect methods and techniques to stop these horrifying attack dead in their tracks.  She claims her method does this by getting to the root cause of the problem rather than just treating the symptoms. Testimonials from users certainly appear to back up Anna’s claims, so I wanted to check it out for myself to see if it’s the real deal.

Product Info:

One of the first things that struck me about this program is how easy the techniques are to follow. Once you sign up, you get instant access to everything. The program includes a 145-page eBook, which teaches the what you need to know to stop a panic attack in 60 seconds and several video and audio tutorials. The techniques teach you how to get rid of any phobia, irrational thought or anxiety before they take control and also how to recognize your own unique warning signs because everyone has their own unique physiological response to stressors. In sum, the program gives you the tools to access that part of your brain that is responsible for the physiological response to stress that turns into a panic attack and shut that down before it happens.

What I Liked:

I’m a big proponent of all-natural treatments for all sorts of ailments including anxiety and stress-related conditions. Unfortunately, “modern medicine’s” approach often involves a heavy dose of pharmaceuticals that simply mask the symptoms, which means you’re going to continue having panic attacks. Moreover, these drugs often contain toxins with potentially harmful side effects. As I mentioned, one of the reasons I was eager to review this product was because it focuses on getting to the root cause of a panic attack to prevent it from happening again without the use of drugs with potentially harmful side effects.

Anything to Dislike?

No, not really…

If you suffer from panic attacks, and this is something that you have not been able to take care of on your own then I think it only makes sense to remain open to holistic solutions and trying new things like this, particularly when they are getting such awesome results for other folks (as noted here).

Panic attack sufferers need a way to move on and live the quality of life that they deserve, and this is a solution that has been shown to preform successfully for a lot of people. And, the great thing about this product is that it’s fast, easy to follow, and it’s all-natural techniques carry no risk of harmful side effects (unlike most medications!).


If you’re looking to take control of your life and prevent panic attacks from stopping you from enjoying the quality of life you’re looking for, you should check out “60 Second Panic Solution.” The guide has already helped others get rid of panic attacks for good, so checking it out is a no-brainer in my book.

Moobs (aka “man boobs”). For the uninitiated, this is an embarrassing phenomenon for many men that can strike at any age. There’s a technical term for man boobs which is the result of a condition called “Gynecomastia” which is the growth of abnormally large breasts in males. Then, there’s simply the effect of when you become so fat that you develop flabby man boobies. Either way, it can be an unsightly vision on the beach or when disrobing in front of your love interest.

Fear not, however, there’s a way to get rid of chest flab and it’s quite simple and very effective.

The tips from the guy in the video above are good as far as how you should be lifting, but it is also important to make sure that you are eating the right foods to get your hormones right so that you can burn off the extra fat, as there is only so much that you can accomplish via exercise…

But yeah, so far as lifting goes, in order to get rid of unsightly upper torso fat you need hit the bench-press and a blast of various exercises which target the muscle area of the chest, then when you fix your diet up you’ll be able to make that chest fat disappear in no time!

As noted in the video, it’s important to remember that one should not become overly obsessed with the bench press. For whatever reason, most guys have come to agree that the most important indicator as to whether you’re in “good shape” is how much you can bench press. In fact, I believe one of the most common questions in muscle-head gyms across the country is “how much do ya bench?” That’s why we tend to see so many top-heavy dudes out there with little skinny chicken legs. This is a uniquely American phenomenon. It simply makes no sense since the legs contain muscles that are so much more important in terms of everyday use.

But I digress, my post regarding the importance of exercises that target the legs will have to wait for another day. The bench press is actually only one way to target the pectoral muscles, but if you’re looking to really build your chest muscles there are several exercises that can be utilized in addition to the traditional bench press. It is important to remember that integrating various exercises that target the chest, you are working towards eliminating your man boobs forever! But remember, you need to keep at it or else the moobs will return. Indeed, often times man breasts are the result of a formerly ripped dude who stops working out and the formerly ripped pecs melt into formless chest flapjacks.

Okay, so let’s get down to the details on what specific exercises you can do to target those ugly sad flappy bags of fat hanging from your chest. For starters, like I mentioned, the bench press should be included along with several other key exercises that target the chest muscles, such as push ups, incline free weight exercises.

When it comes to the traditional flat bench press, a lot of people tend to hold their hands on the bar too far apart. This not only fails to fully target those unslightly mounds of fat on your chest, but because you’re holding the bar wide, it places a lot of stress on the shoulders, which tend to result in injury. Moreover, most people fail to bring the bar all the way down to the chest and instead bring it about 2/3ds of the way down. Again, clearly not getting the most of your time on the bench. Also, most people fail to think about how important your legs are when using the bench press. In other words, it’s really important to think about using your legs for traction during your bench press routine.

Furthermore, most people are focused on how much weight they can life, but what I find most effective in targeting the chest muscles is to integrate the push up, the incline free weight fly and the bench press into one set with little to no rest in between. This ensures you are exponentially increasing your strength building and cardio output and also saves you valuable time!

In the end, the important thing to remember is that the bench press is the focal point on your exercise routine to get rid of your man boobs. Man tits are never something a lady wants to see, so if you’re looking to improve your self-esteem and your sex life, you’d be wise to integrate the exercises described above.

So long as you stick with these exercises, within no time your chest will lose all that excess fat and granular tissue around the breast area and your man boobs will be replaced with rock hard pecs that will improve your self-esteem and drive the ladies crazy!

In today’s post I wanted to take a look at a new program called “Unlock Her Legs” for those of us looking to improve our dating/sex lives.

=> Click Here for the Official Unlock Her Legs Website.

If you are a frequent reader, then you know this is an area that I have personally struggled with quite a bit, so this is a topic I’m pretty passionate about. I’ve also read/watched/listened to quite a number of dating and pick-up guides over the years, and I’ve found it extremely annoying that most of the the programs that I’ve been through offer little or nothing new. Unlock Her Legs however has some pretty interesting stuff in it that I thought you might want to hear about…

I’ve been following Bobby Rio and Rob Judge’s (the product creators) work for a while now and have so far been really impressed with what these guys have to say about dating and personal development. So, when I heard about this latest program I was eager to take a look and find out if it lived up to the standards I’ve come to expect from these guys.

What’s Unlock Her Legs all About

Well, the title pretty much says it all.  I mean every guy out there, or a t least every single guy, has a chick whose legs he would like to unlock so that he can “get in there” so to speak…

Ok, moving on to some basic details… The first section of the guide centers on something called “The Scrambler,” which includes 60-pages of info, 12 training videos, and “audio” modules where Bobby and Rob answer a wide range of questions about the Scrambler. In a nutshell, the Scrambler is all about understanding and then exploiting a woman’s psychology. It’s comprised of several techniques and strategies which are innovative and yet easy-to-follow at the same time.  The various techniques and strategies teach you how to manipulate the female psychology to get a girl, not matter how hot, to physically and emotionally want you.

The second part of the guide is the “lust system,” which teaches you the art of conversation. This section provides proven techniques you can learn to carry any conversation.  The great thing about the course is that you can combine what you learn from the “Scrambler” with the “lust system” to take things exactly where you want them to go when talking with a chick you’ve had your eye on!

As far as the “packaging” goes (this is a completely DIGITAL product) what immediately jumped out at me though is the overall production value. What I mean is that everything is so well put together and organized and easy to follow. Unlike a lot of “dating guides” out there, which seem to be half-heartedly thrown together, Bobby and Rob’s latest guide has all the hallmarks of a professional, well-researched and user-friendly guide.  Once you become a member, you simply log-in and get instant access to everything.

By the way, there’s also a TON of BONUS MATERIAL…

So, in addition to all the material that comes with the guide, you also get six bonuses: (1) Invisible Escalation; (2) She’s Sending You Signals; (3) The Boyfriend Destroyer Sequence; (4) The Magnetic Effect Pattern; (5) Her Erogenous Zones; and (6)12 Conversations that will Make her Fall in Love.

That’s A LOT of bonus material.  I like that. You can check out the details on the bonus materials on the site… I particularly like the “boyfriend destroyer sequence.” This one just resonates with me because if I had a nickel for every time I had a crush on a girl that turned out to have a boyfriend…I’d be a awash in nickels!  Anyway, this little gem is a blueprint on how to cut the boyfriend out of the picture and get that girl you’ve had your eye on.

Bottom Line…

In the end, there’s a lot to like about Bobby Rio’s program. You get a lot of high quality core material and a lot of insights into female attraction that you won’t be able to find anywhere else… And as I mentioned, the production is high quality which makes the product a pleasure to consume.

So, whether you’re a dude who wants to bring his A-game when talking to some hot chick, or you’re already in a relationship and you’re looking to learn about female psychology, or even if you’re just looking to improve your social skills, get this course ASAP. The bottom line here is that you’ll definitely learn techniques that will enhance your love life and improve your social skills tremendously. Click Here To Access Unlock Her Legs.



Binary Options

As you likely already know, binary options are another alternative investment that has been gaining popularity the past few years.  What makes binary options attractive is that they’re incredibly easy to understand.  Another reasons investors have been flocking to binary options is that there’s an opportunity to make huge returns in a very short amount of time.  Additionally, as the world becomes more interconnected globally, more and more investors are realizing some of the benefits of binary options. You can trade anywhere, at any time, which means, so long as you have a laptop or a mobile device and an internet connection, you can make trades.

The thing about binary options that investors need to understand that this is an unregulated investment option—the markets are unregulated outside the U.S.  For this reason, traders need to do their research to make sure that they do not become the victims of dishonest brokers who engage in shady trade practices.

The thing is the risks and the rewards are easily identifiable to you before you make any trades. I would say this is a huge benefit.  To make trades on multiple asset classes in the global markets at anytime is an amazing opportunity. It surely is a signal that the advent of the internet along with the increasing interconnectedness of the global economy is fundamentally changing the way we do business and the way we chose to invest.   It is bound to become more and more mainstream in the coming years!

The bottom line is binary options are a great alternative for investing, but they come with advantages and disadvantages—as with any investment opportunities.  So long as you do your research and make sure that whoever you chose to work with as your broker, it can be a great investment opportunity.


Bitcoin RobotYou may have heard, Bitcoins are getting very popular. So, it was only a matter of time before some clever fellow developed a piece of software to automate Bitcoin trading, so that people like us who love making money would have a way to make bank with Bitcoins all day long, without needing to sit in front of the computer looking at graphs or and other such unpleasantness…

I am currently taking a look at this software and will be updating this post, but my initial Bitcoin Robot review is quiet positive, this is indeed very powerful software, and I have no doubt that it is possible of doing some serious damage! (I mean that in a good way of course!)

The great thing about these sorts of software programs is that they are based on precise algorithms that eliminate the risk of human error. They are cold and emotionless, kind of like Mr. Spock from Star Trek.

Anyway, I’ll be back to add details as I have them, in the meantime here are somemore thought I had on the future of crypto-currencies:

The Future of Bitcoin 

One of the major reasons investors are attracted to Bitcoin is the complete anonymity that it offers.  The reason some became concerned with criminal activity is that Bitcoin is a completely unregulated currency.  On the upside, there are no costly administrative fees and you are granted complete freedom and control over your currency.  Supposedly, this offers a downside, which some claim is for money laundering and criminal activity.  The reality is however that of course with anonymity comes the potential that some may misuse that opportunity.  But any currency can be used for criminal purposes.

The reality is that Bitcoin, like many alternative currencies, is not subject to the same standards of traditional currencies.  Therefore, it is not regulated.  Rather, it is designed to be a completely open source, peer-to-peer currency.

Advocates of this new form of currency say that this is the true form a currency should take by cutting out burdensome middlemen and inefficient regulators.  In short, this is the true meaning of a free-market global currency.

As the world becomes more and more interconnected, there is a strong argument to be made that Bitcoin and other currencies like Bitcoin truly are the wave of the future.  It remains to be seen if major governments will crack down on these currencies down the road, but right now, without a doubt there are enormous benefits.

Many advocates of open source software are more than happy to see this concept being applied to currency.  It truly is the next logical step in the increasing interconnectedness of the global economy.   As such, we predict that as the global economy becomes more and more interconnected, more and more people and institutions will begin using alternative currencies as a viable currency.  What’s remarkable is that it’s taken so many years since the advent of the internet for such currencies to finally take hold.
