They dropped as much as 750 points. “In the first hour of trading today, the market is experiencing significant index swings, but seems to be leveling off.”

As I went over in an Op-Ed on Sunday, Hillary Clinton could not be allowed to become President of the United States. Call me crazy, but the world does not need openly corrupt, lying, World War 3-threatening politicians controlling Washington.

Ok, enough about me being so right all the time…..what does this mean for Bitcoin? I’m going to give you three fast ways Trump helps Bitcoin and provides Bitcoin a much better future than the corrupt alternative.
