Despite currently trading around $8,000 and steadily increasing in popularity, cryptocurrencies are often still marred by fear and negative media coverage.
Bitcoin is transparent and digital, meaning when using it you don’t have to worry about counterfeit money. It’s the first successful use case of blockchain technology in digital payment.
As Bitcoin’s introduction verges on its 10th year, it’s starting to gain further widespread adoption around the world.
Here are 10 moments in its history that stand out as well as a bitcoin infographic with 67 insane facts.
Satoshi Nakamoto Launches Bitcoin with a Radical Agenda (January 2009)
You might assume that somebody who creates a new currency is probably in it for the money, and while Bitcoin’s mysterious founder Satoshi Nakamoto is estimated to own $4.7 billion worth of BTC, it’s the radical agenda behind the technology that has inspired many people to show their support.
“The Times 3 January 2009 Chancellor on brink of the second bailout for banks,” was the message Nakamoto left in the very first block that was mined that month – referencing an article about the financial crisis and the UK’s taxpayer-funded bank bailout.
Bitcoin is not controlled by any central government or authority, transactions are pseudonymous, and there are no inherent restrictions preventing any individual from using it as long as they are able to connect to the internet and use the web. Even in countries where BTC is outlawed, there isn’t always a realistic way to enforce the ban.
Without these radical elements, it could be argued that Bitcoin would not be as successful, as there wouldn’t be anything particularly unique about it.
Bitcoin Pizza Day (May 2010)
An example of BTC’s rise in value is “bitcoin pizza day,” the day which commemorates the very first consumer purchase using the currency.
On May 22, 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz bought pizza from 18-year old Jeremy Sturdivant, for 10,000 BTC, totaling approximately $25 at the time. Today this is worth over $50 million!
It wasn’t a direct transaction with the pizza place; rather Hanyecz sent the money to Sturdivant who agreed to place the orders.
Unfortunately, it is not known what Sturdivant did with his coins and if he’s now living the high life or kicking himself for spending them up before the boom in value. However, one person we do know who is kicking themselves is Hanyecz, who probably should have just made a sandwich and held on to his fortune.
Numerous independent and larger pizza chains now accept payment in BTC. Also, there are several online services that allow customers to pay a middleman in BTC, who will then order a desired service on your behalf in regular currency.
Europe Embraces Bitcoin (2011)
Although the US was its birthplace, Europe was quick to embrace Bitcoin. In 2011 French based exchange Bitcoin Central was the first exchange to be licensed under European regulation.
It subsequently assured customers’ balances up to 100,000 EUR and offered debit cards with access to BTC balances. In practice, this meant that Bitcoin (BTC) could be immediately exchanged into Euros at the point of sale or ATM.
In 2014, Belgium and Finland decided the cryptocurrency was exempt from VAT, meaning trades could be legally made without buyers being subject to tax.
In 2017, Swiss private bank Falcon became the first bank to sell bitcoin directly to its customers. The tradeoff is that anonymity is lost as transactions made by an account holder can be linked.
Time Magazine Article (April 2011)
It might not quite have the clout it used to, but Time Magazine featured Bitcoin in, giving it a rubber stamp of relevance among mainstream media.
This occurred in April 2011 with their piece entitled “Online Cash Bitcoin Could Challenge Governments, Banks.”
The article looked at the potential risks to users and barriers from governments, its use in the illegal dark web marketplaces, and its steep learning curve. Simultaneously it explored the benefits and then revolutionary concept behind the blockchain technology.
Since then, the magazine has done many more pieces (both positive and negative) on Bitcoin.
A Coupled Lived 90 Days on Just Bitcoins (Summer 2013)
Are bitcoins accessible to the average person? Do they work as a day-to-day means of exchange, or are they just for geeks, ideologues and investors?
Austin Craig and Beccy Bingham proved in the summer of 2013 that, yes, you can get by using only BTC. However, their 90 day experiment wasn’t easy – they could only use Skype to make calls, and purchases were dependent on whether they could convince retailers and service providers to accept the currency or use the kindness of friends and strangers to act as middle-men.
Of course, we’ve come a long way since then. Now even some gas stations are accepting BTC, and you can pay at many independent stores for groceries and other goods.
Cyprus University Accepts Bitcoins for Tuition (November 2013)
In an effort to ease transmission difficulties for certain students, the University of Nicosia in Cyprus began accepting BTC for student tuition in November 2013.
The private university’s CFO Dr. Christos Vlachos appears to be a proponent of the currency, stating: “Digital currency will create more efficient services and will serve as a mechanism for spreading financial services to under-banked regions of the world.”
In addition to being a practical move, he stated that it was a way for the institution to learn more about the technology firsthand.
A center of learning trying to learn something new? What a novel idea!
The Great Bitcoin Boom of 2013
2013 was a big year for bitcoin as it saw its value skyrocket from $125 in the September to over $1,100 by the end of November. This was heavily tied to the market’s expansion into populous China and a perfect storm of new media coverage and bullish investing.
Of course, rapid booms tend to preclude busts and the collapse of leading exchange Mt. Gox, a ban in China, numerous hackings, the closing of the illegal marketplace the Silk Road, and lots of negative coverage ensured this would be deep and painful (but not fatal).
Bitcoin’s value plummeted to $400 in April 2014 and hit lows of about $200 in January 2015.
Nonetheless, the community saw where Bitcoin could go and it would go higher still. Their optimism was confirmed with aplomb when BTC rose to almost $20,000 in value at the end of 2017.
Microsoft on Board (2014)
It’s one thing when an independent hipster coffee shop or an online tech store offer bitcoin as a payment method, but when a mega corporation Microsoft gets behind something you know it has legs.
They began accepting BTC as a form of payment for digital items in December 2014, in partnership with BitPay – today’s leading Bitcoin payment service provider that launched in 2011 and was the first to offer a wallet on smartphones, making it much easier for the general public to get involved.
Microsoft also allows you to add money to your account with BTC via the ‘Redeem bitcoin’ feature.
Banks and Other Institutions Adopt the Technology (May 2015)
If you can’t beat them join them; this seems to be the perspective of governments, banks and other institutions that are now researching and investing in blockchain p2p technology themselves – a clear example of Bitcoin’s success.
In May 2015, NASDAQ adopted the blockchain to handle transactions. Then in September, Goldman Sachs, JPMorganChase, and Bank of America were among nine of the world’s biggest banks to join a pact to build the “fabric” of blockchain technology for the banking industry.
In March 2016, broker ICAP was the first to distribute data on trades to customers using blockchain, and in the May Santander became the first British bank to start using the tech for recording international payments.
In 2017, the US Government began investing in blockchain to protect healthcare companies from hackers, and by 2020 Dubai wants all government transactions to be blockchain-powered.
Despite all these entities owing their innovation to the founder of Bitcoin, the digital currency’s advocates are keen to point out that the technology was supposed to bypass the old guard, not empower it.
Mt. Gox Saga
The Mt. Gox saga is commonly considered a black mark on Bitcoin history. After all, in early 2014 there was a major scandal that saw the disappearance of approximately 850,000 bitcoins the exchange was holding in wallets and trades. By May 2016, creditors of Mt. Gox had claimed they lost $2.4 trillion because of the bankruptcy.
Yet, despite such a massive failure of the BTC market (at one time Mt. Gox was processing 80% of all currency trade related transactions), the cryptocurrency survived, rebounded and continues to thrive.
It was a much needed wake-up call for the community. Despite inherent encryption, entrusting third parties without security protocols to get it right was naïve. Now everybody knows better and the market is stronger because of it.
Bitcoin Explosion (2017)
2017 was the year of Bitcoin.
The cryptocurrency began the year valued just over $1,000 and finished it at nearly $20,000.
This massive increase in value saw it emerging from geeky-obscurity into the mainstream with force. News channels, newspapers, sites that had never covered the topic before, all began blabbering about the new phenomenon, spewing controversial information and unchecked facts.
The surge of popularity led to many new investors joining, but also many got burned by the prodigal volatility of the cryptocurrency, which has more than halved in value since its zenith in late December 2017.
As of the end of Mar 2018 bitcoin boasts over 24 million users (or digital wallets), nearly 2,400 ATMs in many countries, the number of daily transactions are growing exponentially, and it’s trading around $8,000. Bitcoin: success or failure? Check out these amazing facts about Bitcoin:
10 Ways to Attract Women
Are you approaching women and starting conversations, but it doesn’t always “click”?
Don't worry, you've found the right place.
First we have the 3 basic myths of attraction, and then we have 10 points from my personal Instant Attraction Checklist. These are some of the fastest ways to attract a girl and potentially build a relationship.
Finally, you should check out the Deceptively Simple Guide to Understanding and Creating Attraction. I've taught this theory to hundreds of guys, and many have told them this has MASSIVELY improved their understanding of how to create attraction.
Here's a video version of that guide (for those of you who don't reading!) Make sure to watch the whole thing!
Please click if this helped you, and subscribe to our channel (with notifications on) to get new videos as they come out!
Myth #1: If it works, keep doing it
A lot of Love Systems attraction techniques are “glitches in the matrix.” They are shortcuts to getting a woman attracted to you much faster and much more effectively than most women are used to.
But if you only use one of these techniques and keep going back to that, it gets very obvious and very stale very quickly.
I was sitting in on a recent bootcamp where there was a student who fit this to a T. His thing was teasing and funny comebacks.
He is really good at them. So you’d see him approach a group of 9s and 10s, and at first they him and are touching him, but within a few minutes it got stale.
Because that was (at the time) all he had, and every time he rolled that out, it was obvious he was chasing the same great reactions the women gave him at the beginning of the conversation.
Once we got him mixing in a few different kinds of attraction…
a mix of intrigue-based attraction and state-based attraction, a mix of techniques Cold Reads, Storytelling, Disqualification, Role Plays, and so on, he became “a cool guy” instead of “a guy with funny comebacks.”
vary it up. Don’t be a one-trick pony. There are a bunch of attraction techniques in Intro to Attraction; make sure you’re good with more than one or two of them.
Myth #2: Women ______ aren’t attracted to guys me
Attraction is NOT logical. Women don’t mathematically calculate your pluses and minuses. It’s an involuntary emotional process. David D put it, “attraction is not a choice.” If you can do the types of things that make her feel attracted, she will be.
(Obviously some guys have some natural advantages. You should cultivate natural advantages whenever you can. But that does NOT mean you need these advantages to get the girl you want.
The challenge is whether she ACTS on this attraction. Which brings us to..
Myth #3: Get her attracted to you, and that's all you need to do.
Women get attracted to different guys all the time. Most of the time, it’s temporary and fleeting.
So if you’ve ever met a woman who seemed really into you at the time, but blew you off the next day, don’t worry. This is normal and correctable.
Solidify and lock in her attraction to you, so it sustains.
The best ways to do this are with Qualification (get her to chase you) and Comfort (get to know each other better so she can reverse-engineer logical reasons to justify her emotional attraction to you).
Do them in that order.
Never build Comfort before Attraction. If you’re in any doubt on this one, read the Love Systems Triad – it’s a free page.
This by the way is why a lot of “flakes” happen. She was interested in you at the time she gave you her phone number, but it was all fun and fleeting. If she didn’t have to invest in you and there’s nothing in particular she remembers about you other than you had a fun conversation, then it might not go anywhere.
Instant Attraction Checklist
These are some of the most powerful ways to attract a girl:
Touch (appropriately) early, touch often. If you’re just a “talking head” you’ve neutered your chances. Remember, attraction is emotional. Touching creates an emotional response.
If you’re not confident with social touch, check out the Beyond Words Home Study Course or Volume 2 of the Routines Manual with lots of physical escalation routines, i.e.
‘excuses’ to start and escalate the touching.
Slow it down. Talk slower and deeper than normal. And Cajun says in Beyond Words, move you are under water.
Women take major cues off your shoes and your hair. Luckily, these are easy games to win. Shoes = clean and hair = fashionable, not boring.
Eyes-feet reflex. When you see someone interesting, walk toward her with a small smile. Right away. 98% of the time, you lose the opportunity or you creep her out by waiting.
Come in with an energy level at, or slightly higher than, hers. Anything else will be disconcerting to her.
It’s not a ****ing job interview. Asking her tons of questions contributes nothing to the conversation, makes her do all the work, tells her nothing about you, and reminds her of the last 500 losers who had nothing to say. Use statements and guesses wherever possible, and don’t ask two questions in a row.
Project your voice. Trained actor Vercetti has the last word on this, so I’ll defer to him here.
Have something to say. It’s an old sports call-in show I used to listen to, where Jim Rome would tell his callers to “have a take, and don’t suck.” You approached her. You’re going to be responsible for 90% of the conversation for the first few minutes (and remember rule 6 if you think you’re going to get around this by asking questions).
Everything is ALWAYS going exactly as planned. Love Systems instructor Future had a great segment on this at the last Super Conference. Bouncer moving you? Some other guy won’t leave her alone? Bar closing early? Her friend being a cockblock? Act you’ve seen it all before and it’s to be expected. Handle what needs to be handled, but don’t be flustered or thrown off.
Have fun. Emotions are contagious. If you treat it a job or a visit to the dentist, the odds will be against you. Go places where you have fun. Go with people you have fun with. One of my old haunts had an old-school pinball machine. If I got knocked state, a quick beer and a game of pinball and I was right back there.
If you want to improve your skills of attraction, probably the best thing you can do is download our free ebook “Be the Man She Wants”. It goes into the essence of attraction and some of the biggest mistakes that guys make.

Dating Younger Women! 5 Tips To Make Her Want You MORE!
Have you been interested in dating younger women, but just don’t know how to? Dating younger women does not have to be intimidating or taboo if you understand what they need and know how to date them. After all, age is just a number.
Let’s be real – younger women can be extremely attractive and you may think to yourself, “Do they think an older man me is even attractive or appealing”?’ The truth is, “yes”, they do. Being older can definitely work in your favor.
And who knows, you may even find yourself with the love of your life 20 years younger than you! A lot of younger women actually look for older men because they presume, they are more emotionally mature and this is what attractions women emotionally.
However it’s definitely important to know how to date younger women because it can pose its own unique challenges, and that’s what you’re here for. Welcome to dating younger women 101.

Dating a younger girl
Dating a younger girl can be very different from dating a woman in your own age range. While it might seem that dating someone around your age, whose experiences might mirror yours, is easier, dating a younger woman can have many unique advantages.
Firstly, when you start to date a younger girl, find out where she’s at in her life. She could know exactly what she wants to do with her career, or she could still be figuring it all out. Admit it, you’ve been there too.
If you’re dating someone between the age of 18-25, imagine all the life changes you had in those years of your own life and be aware that she may be going through similar changes. You don’t have to force your priorities to match up with hers.
They may not because you’re at completely different points in your lives, and that’s okay. You can avoid pressuring her into things if you know exactly where she’s at in her life from the beginning of the relationship.
The red flag that I would suggest for you to be aware of is, when a woman is not interested in learning or focusing on her personal growth. Some younger women just want to have fun and if you are looking for just fun then go ahead. But if it’s a relationship you’re after, you have to make sure that the younger woman is wanting the same thing as you.
Even if she is young, she could be a mature old soul at the age of 50 inside, or she could be a youthful spirit still figuring out her own s and diss. Perhaps she’s had many long term relationships already, or maybe she’s only dated off and on. When dating younger women, try to find out at what stage of her life she’s in and what she might want or need from you as her partner.
Because the age gap is a big one between you two, it’s also really important to take it slow. In games of love and life, slow and steady always wins the race. Take the time to get to know her, understand what makes her tick, and find out what she’s looking for in a relationship.
Don’t make quick moves on her – remember, especially because you’re older, that might make her uneasy. She may think your intentions are dishonest or that you’re trying to take advantage of her because she’s young. If you make the moves on her too fast, she might run off.
Remember, slow and steady wins the race! Don’t push a relationship as you will know when a woman wants this.
Dating younger women definitely also involves keeping up with them. Keep her engaged, because she’ll definitely keep you on your toes! Young women to have fun and experience new things, even if you’ve experienced this all before.
Not interested in going to that club you used to go to ten years ago? Don’t feel going on a strenuous long hike with her? Give it a shot, it won’t kill you. Dating a younger woman can challenge you to try new things and force yourself to go outside your comfort zone.
In fact, research shows that older men who date younger women tend to be healthier and live longer — go figure! So if you try out things that engage her, maybe you’ll presently surprise yourself too.
Lastly, be receptive and open to the things she’s interested in. If you’re not open-minded, you may find that she’ll lose interest in you very quickly. You’ll find yourself in a game of cat and mouse, where she constantly makes you chase her, and you’ll lose sight of the relationship completely. Don’t fall into that trap — adapt to her and involve yourself in her interests.
How to date a younger woman
Be mature! Younger women are attracted to a mature man, let’s be honest, it’s the reason she wanted to date an older man in the first place.
She’s probably not particularly interested in men her age because they don’t know themselves well and play stupid games, texting them late at night for booty calls or completely ghosting them. That being said, prove her right and show her that you know what you want.
Be in touch with her consistently and don’t send mixed signals or not take her seriously just because she’s young. Don’t be afraid to be honest, and slowly let your feelings show as she shows hers for you. Your honesty is mature – and that’s sexy.
There’s nothing sexier than a man that knows himself, is assertive, and isn’t afraid to show his feelings. Being honest with yourself and with her will benefit both of you in the long run.
Part of you being mature is letting her spread her wings and fly a little bit. Acknowledge the fact that because she’s younger, she has strong desires to try new things and fulfill her own curiosities.
Don’t try to tell her what to do just because you’re older; she already has a father figure in her life,(possibly) and she probably doesn’t want her boyfriend to be one either.
Your support of letting her fulfill her desires will be attractive to her, and your awareness of her needs will make you wise beyond your years – literally speaking, that is.
So, let’s review and add some new points for some easy tips for you to remember when dating a younger woman, and you’ll be off to some happy dating in no time!
Tip# 1: Don’t be immature
This is something for dating across the spectrum, but especially for dating younger women. They’re interested in older men particularly because they have maturity and experience. Don’t be inconsistent in your communication or not take her out on proper dates.
Court her, show her that you’re a man that knows what he’s doing. If you’re not interested in a long term relationship, be clear about it. Younger women want a man that knows himself. Take her seriously, act maturely, and treat her with respect.
Sometimes I’ve seen men belittle women because they’re young so be careful here. Also, sometimes this happens because a woman might not be very respectful at times or test you from time to time. Don’t be afraid to stand your ground and put her back into her place in a respectful manner.
And don’t try to fit in with her crowd or her age group – just be yourself.
Tip# 2: Show her a good time and excitement
Engage her interests and excite her! Take her to a show, a new restaurant, cook with her. Be creative and think about fun things you could do with her. Be open-minded and receptive to her interests and ideas, even if you are thinking to yourself ‘been there, done that’ or ‘I’m too old for this.
’ Maybe with her things are different or you’ll see life in a different way, so allow yourself to be spontaneous. If you show her a good time, most ly you’ll show yourself a good time too. Be bold enough to show her you have your act together, and young enough to still want to have fun and enjoy life’s thrills.
Dating doesn’t have to be so serious.
Tip# 3: Don’t try to buy her
Younger women are not dating older men because they want a sugar daddy, contrary to popular belief. You don’t have to impress her by buying her things to try to keep her by your side – if anything that shows insecurity. Showing her a good time, listening to her, and being open-minded to new activities is much more powerful than buying her love with money.
You may be thinking to herself, “Well, doesn’t she also me because I have financial security because I’m older?” That may be so, and it’s nice to have a boyfriend who is financially secure, but that’s only one result of having your act together.
Younger women to be with older men because they’re secure in their life in general, at least much more so than a young guy. That’s enough for them. You don’t need to flash around your money – that will definitely make her feel uncomfortable.
She will want to feel she can contribute also to the relationship in some way, and if you make her feel she can’t because she’s a) too young and b) doesn’t have a good job, that’ll make her feel way worse.
Use your money with her with intelligence and not as a power tool or a way of showing yourself to be an amazing boyfriend. Don’t assume that she can’t take care of herself just because she’s young.
Tip# 4: Show her something different. Don’t be afraid to take the lead
Be adventurous with the dates you take her on and share your own experience of the world. You have more years on her, so show her some interesting things you’ve discovered or never seen before.
Take her outside of her comfort zone too and challenge her! You can feel comfortable to be especially assertive and she’ll want you to take the lead, so don’t be afraid to do it.
When you walk into a restaurant with her, make your presence known – find the hostess, tell her about the reservation you made (because you’ve already taken the lead and planned in advance), and show her to the table.
Take her to something unusual, ax throwing or an interesting theater show. Impress her with your perceptiveness and your ability to take control and make plans yourself. That will show her that you have the potential to be an incredible partner.
Tip# 5: Initiate
Finally, don’t be afraid to initiate. A younger woman s being with an older man precisely because they know how to take control. They’re sick of dating timid young guys that don’t know what they’re doing on dates or in the bedroom.
You’ve got the experience, so show it. She’ll find your ability to take control of a situation refreshed and confidence, and will definitely want to see and hear from you more. Lure her in with your strong sense of self and fearlessness.
Men dating younger women
Understanding that women choose to be with younger men of presence they bring to the relationship. Women crave a man that can make them feel safe and give them access to resources. That does not mean money that means sustainability.
Women are wired to make sure they make the best decision for themselves and future offspring. Even if they don’t want to have kids. If you think about history for a moment and think about why a man and woman were created one was masculine and one was feminine.
More than ever these days men are becoming more feminine by becoming passive so women are drawn to men who aren’t. The ones that know themselves and the ones that are grounded and stable with life and understanding manhood.
I do think that this is something that is not talked about enough so that’s why I travel the world and do intense Bootcamps with men. If you’re interested in signing up for one of my bootcamps I encourage you to click this link here.
Now, go and win that younger woman’s heart! Don’t be afraid to approach her either!
