Virgin Galactic CEO: Everyone Should Have 1% of their Assets in Bitcoin

Chamath Palihapitiya, the billionaire chairman of spaceflight company Virgin Galactic, has recommended that everyone hold Bitcoin (BTC) as a form of crisis insurance.

Speaking on CNBC’s Squawk Box, Palihapitiya said he believes that “everybody should probably have 1% of their assets in Bitcoin.”

Palihapitiya said that Bitcoin comprises a “fantastic hedge,” as every other financial instrument is correlated [...] except Bitcoin, which is fundamentally uncorrelated.”

"When you see the amount of leverage the financial industry is running, and you think about all these dislocations and all these exogenous things that are happening that you can't predict, there's a lot of risk to the downside, and it will be great that an average individual citizen, of any country in the world, has an uncorrelated hedge.”

https://cointelegraph.com/news/virgin-galactic-ceo-everyone-should-have-1-of-their-assets-in-bitcoin

Smart recommendation Wink HODL!!!
According to NIST and ECRYPT II, the cryptographic algorithms used in Bitcoin are expected to be strong until at least 2030. (After that, it will not be too difficult to transition to different algorithms.)

- Leaked documents reveal coronavirus infections up to 52 times higher than reported figures in China’s Shandong province.

the problem of politicians is that even when there is a serious situation they continue to lie, I do not believe in the numbers that the Chinese government keeps talking. the situation is probably much more serious and china continues to lie about the numbers of dead and infected
Or.... its just a stronger flu and this is the worlds first successful exercise of placing 700 million under marshall law.

Bit late to share this piece (3days) considering how quickly things change here in bitcoinlandia but fits every time when downtrend continues.
When HODLING Bitcoin, There’s Only One Number That Really Matters - Hint: this number is not the price of Bitcoin.

Quote
You Have to Think Long-Term With Bitcoin
I often say that the best strategy with Bitcoin is the simplest. It consists of 3 steps:
1. Buy Bitcoin
2. HODL Bitcoin
3. Repeat from Step 1
This model requires a true confidence in Bitcoin, and the revolution it builds block by block.

Here is the Head of Homeland Security testifying in front of Congress that the Coronavirus has a mortality rate of about 2%(likely in the ballpark) and that the normal Flu has also had a mortality rate of 2% over the last decade. Anyone who has spent more than 5 minutes online in the last few weeks knows the Flu mortality is a small fraction of a percent(.1), not 2 percent. Only about 2000% inaccurate.  Roll Eyes

This wasnt a Biden gaffe. The Senator asks if he is sure, he replies he is sure. LMFAO  Grin

This just shows the masses the incredible incompetence and ignorance of the Govy boyz.

https://twitter.com/nowthisnews/status/1232916522948935680


Money is about, among other things, trust and belief. When the Aids Flu is done slaughtering older nocoiners across the globe, trust in governments will be at never before seen lows.

This is Uber Bullish for King Bitcoin as they will put their trust in him, and the world will be a better place for it.

Warren Buffet, the King of all Nocoiners, is 89 and lives off of Mcdonalds, Cherry Coke, and candy. When he catches Aids Flu Id give him a 50/50 shot of surviving if infected.

https://www.businessinsider.com/warren-buffett-diet-2017-10

Buffet's partner Charlie Munger is 96, I give him a 2 percent chance of surviving if he catches it.

The future is going to have a lot less old men and women yelling at Bitcoin.

No one is happy that so many elderly may die, but lets be real about the economics of it. They are almost all nocoiners and they will leave their assets to the younger generation, many of whom cant wait to go balls deep in the King. No homo.

since when?

people write custom BIOS for older stuff all the time

not being snarky, really want to know

Sometimes BIOS'es are modified to add features or to allow other OS'es to be installed.

Like the Xbox 360 which was sold at a loss to make money on games.
Anyone being able to modify the BIOS could install Linux and have a very very cheap system running.

Or when people want to add hardware that isn't allowed.

But yes MOST people DON'T need to modify the BIOS  Smiley

Bitcoin is proving to be a great Safe Haven asset. We are up 22 percent from the price of 7200 on Dec. 31 when Coronavirus became global news.

That is more than triple the 6.9 percent gold has gained in the same time frame. Who cares if the King went down the last few days. A lot of people are taking profits from a wise safe haven investment they made months ago.

Profit taking is happening with gold also and no one is saying its not a safe haven. In the last 3 days, Gold has given up 31 percent of the gains it made since Coronavirus disaster was known to the world.

Since December 31 Stocks as measured by Vanguards Total World Index are down about 4.6 percent.

Silver isnt even up a full percent in the same time frame.  Roll Eyes

Safe haven doesnt mean you go up every single day stocks go down, it means that you perform better during a crisis. The King is absolutely performing better than Stocks and Gold in a global crisis.

Throw in the fact that we are about to have the Halvening, the most joyous event in Bitcoinland, and we may have to create a new sub category of Safe Haven assets. Moon Haven.


TLDR: King is Safe Haven, Coronavirus is Super Bullish. Halvening is Moon. Wash ur hands.

I would care less if i am running as unpriv. user on a system that is not network connected. I didn't mention that i'd never use a host with actual user data on it. I thought that would be clear because i was replying to Dabs' "frozen sysimage" approach. I would definitely not use a guest VM but a dedicated box that i can reset via dd or similar disc imaging tools, i wasn't clear on that, as i just recognize while typing this.
And yes, it's part of the very basics: there is no 100% security, only 100% security against certain (and therefor known) attack vectors.

I’m gonna say this one last time. Your postulated recovery is weaksauce against anything other than a disk-resident vector.

dd ain’t gonna do nothing for you if malware-containing USB infects the BIOS.

my bios has a reset to default button for times it all goes wrong. dont conflate things to 2 options when there are many more possibilities

and where do the machine level instructions that are executed when the bios reset button is pressed come from? and the table of values that will be loaded?

EDIT: i miss EPROMS

CP/M here i come (again). RS232 and a terminal emulator is all i need. stocking up on 8" and 5 1/4" floppies now
