Government vs. Bitcoin: Impacts For Price and Business

Members Area Highlights


One of the biggest threats facing Bitcoin's adoption is world governments.  

That is why we released this 2014 Bitcoin Legislation Update for Members Only.  Above is a short clip taken from the one hour presentation.

Why does this matter?  

When China announced that Btc could not be traded by financial institutions, the Btc price had a flash crash down from $1,200USD to $550USD.  

That is why it is important to know what is coming from governments around the world… Especially the US government.  

Also, as different countries take different stances for or against adoption of crypto-currencies, we will see a migration of businesses from one jurisdiction to the next, a kind of "regulatory arbitrage."  

If you are interested in investing in, or starting a Bitcoin business, this information is crucial for you.   If you have Bitcoin, have sold, or are planning to buy more, you need to know whats going on.  

And its looking like New York may be open to Bitcoin Business... unless the Regulators side with NY law enforcement.

With its new independence comes new opportunities, especially for Americans, to live and work in paradise.

Robert Helms on Belize Real Estate Opportunities

Members Area Highlights

This is a short excerpt from an interview conducted by The Success Council with Robert Helms exclusively for its members.

Recently I had a chance to catch up with a really interesting guy. Robert Helms host of the Real Estate guys Radio show and Podcast.

I have been hearing a lot about preppers identifying Belize as a great plan B location to go to if the going ever gets tough in their home country.

Macarena Rose who we have met in previous sections for example has chosen Belize to live for the last 8 years.

I wanted to learn more about Belize both from a lifestyle point of view but also as a place to hold some real estate as an investment. Its always great when your preparation plans neatly intersect with your wealth creation strategies as well.

I knew Robert had been active in the Belize market and this was the perfect opportunity to pick his brain.

He is an absolute wealth of information.

Carry Your Wealth On You

Members Area Highlights


When president Roosevelt forcibly confiscated gold from all American citizens in 1933 only gold bullion, coins, and certificates were stolen.

Jewelry got a pass.

In todays never ending list of declarations and forms to be filled out when shipping gold offshore, only bullion and coins are declarable.

Jewelry worn is exempted.

I am hypothesizing here, but I think the big bad bankers and their obedient thugs in governments have a little phrase in the back of their minds.  "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." Perhaps for this reason, perhaps for other reasons jewelry, is often (but not always) exempted from government theft and capital controls.

This raises an interesting opportunity. By converting your gold bullion to jewelry it may be possible to hang onto your wealth or travel overseas with it on your person when otherwise it may not have.

The challenge usually arises in that jewelers usually make a 100-200% markup on the metal they use to make jewelry pieces. This makes it less attractive.

Well, a full service investment house that has a very similar outlook on the world as Success Council, has made an entry into the jewelry market for just this reason. They have approached the market need for jewelry as an investment and asset protection point of view. With markups of just 40%, it is a big improvement on the average jeweler. I do not recommend turning all of your bullion into jewelry, however for the right person it might be a nice way to carry around a store of wealth around your neck and maybe even beat future capital controls with it.
