From July 21st through the end of the year, a timeline of serious obstacles threatens to crater the speculative Bitcoin marketplace. One of those events has been called a "Bitcoin civil war" and could threaten the very existence of the crypto currency. That's why people are taking profits right now, selling their Bitcoin holdings and driving the price downward. (See BitRAPED.com for more coverage.)
Remember: Bitcoin isn't backed by gold. It isn't backed by anything at all. There's nothing technically superior to Bitcoin compared to other crypto currencies such as Ethereum or Z-cash. As a result, nearly all the growth in Bitcoin over the last few months was based on speculative greed, where people hope to cash in on the bubble of crypto currencies even though they don't understand the real risk.
The Bitcoin promoters telling you that you can't trust the dollar because it's fiat currency usually fail to inform you that Bitcoin is crypto fiat currency, backed by nothing. In fact, one of the "fixes" being discussed by the Bitcoin community right now would result in lifting the limit of 21 million Bitcoins, allowing potentially unlimited future Bitcoins to flood the marketplace, thereby devaluing presently-held Bitcoins. Quantitative easing, it seems, isn't just for central banks...
I've explained all this in more detail in my studio video, below, recorded on June 7th, 2017, long before the Bitcoin market began to really crumble. For the record, I support the idea of decentralized crypto currency and rendering corrupt central banks obsolete. However, Bitcoin is so far lost into the depths of greed and hucksterism that I can't stay silent on this issue. I especially don't want the millions of readers and fans who follow my work to be harmed by the Bitcoin collapse, which is why I began publicly warning people about all this a couple of months ago:

There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
