What is bitcoin and cryptocurrency?

Bitcoin is decentralized, peer-to-peer, borderless, fast and safe. You're in full control of your Bitcoin, there are ways that it provides a return on investment through forking, and the infrastructure is currently building throughout the entire world. People are quickly learning that Bitcoin and blockchain technology provides a way to keep personal information private and encrypted instead of open in the cloud. "The cloud" is simply a term used to describe how merchants hold your information.

What is Ethereum and ERC20 Tokens?

Ethereum (ETH - Ether) is decentralized and mined like Bitcoin, but also allows developers to create decentralized applications (Dapps) along with cryptocurrency tokens. For example, I created 1,000,000 BELL tokens for people to buy who believe in me and my personal growth. ETH tokens are run on the ETH blockchain so I didn't need to create an entire blockchain, just a token using the Ethereum Blockchain (www.etherscan.io)

BELL Token - Learn for free. #awareness

BELL Token stands for: Bitcoin. Ethereum. Litecoin. Litecoin fork: Dogecoin. Much fun. I want people to learn how to download a wallet, create an ETH address and start accepting tokens for free. Once you see how easy it is you'll see that "Tokens" aren't worth as much as "mined cryptocurrencies". I issued myself 1,000,000 tokens immediately compared to Bitcoin being mined over 130 years. Central control (Like I have with my free token) is something that's frowned upon in the cryptocurrency space; Decentralization is a key component.

Ethereum Name Server (ENS) ChrisBell.eth Cryptocurrency Payment Portal

This video explains the Ethereum Name Server (ENS) that forwards chrisbell.eth to my Ethereum address. Instead of asking friends to send me money to a 40 character ETH address, I tell them to send me money to chrisbell.eth which is a cryptocurrency payment portal. It's similar to the Domain Name Server (DNS) which forwards www.chrisbell.com to my IP address. It's easier than asking for the long address and there's no personal information required.

Think of real estate as a retirement plan

Think of real estate as a retirement plan because it's easier to add up the monthly cash flow needed to survive forever compared to a lump sum in an IRA or 401K. Try to make $250 per month on every $30,000 invested which is 10% ROI. How much do you need to retire on a monthly basis? If you need (want) $3,000 per month to quit your job, then you'll need to invest [3000 x 12 x 10] = $360,000. That also means that if you ever won $360,000 or inherited it, you'd be able to put that money to work at 10% and make $3,000 for the rest of your life.

There's No Real Estate Bubble - Bubbles are for Children

Real estate is the most powerful thing in the world. It's Earth. How could you not want to own a piece of Earth at some point in your life? Expert after expert will drive you to think that it's a perfect time to buy, or a horrible time to buy, or to wait six months for prices to hit rock bottom, then buy. There's NO Real Estate Housing Bubble, bubbles are for children. Bubbles pop and they're gone forever. Stating that the stock market or that real estate is in a bubble that could pop is wrong. It could deflate a little bit, or lower, or sink downward, but it won't pop.

Pay Down Real Estate or Leverage to Buy More?

Pay down real estate or leverage to buy more? This question depends on your risk level. If you're a safe investor then you should continue to pay down your real estate before you buy more, but if you're a risky investor then you can leverage up to 80% of each mortgage to buy more real estate. If your interest rate is 5% or higher then it's a great idea to pay down your mortgage to pay less interest. If you've been dreaming about being a landlord then you should save your money for a down payment instead of paying down your current mortgage.

What is Decentraland? Decentralized Virtual Reality (VR) Land Tutorial

Decentraland will be launching their platform in virtual reality near Q2-2019 but has already released the land parcels for sale. One must buy MANA tokens to participate and purchase land. MANA is the Decentraland currency token that allows you to buy things after running down the road and entering someones land. Similar to entering a website and interacting, you will be able to run around Decentraland with your VR headset in search for fun things to do on purchased land run by random people. A Vegas City is being build bu a district, so land in that area is popular.


Decentraland Estates - @DCLstart - MANA Token

After buying a few parcels of land with your MANA tokens you can group them together into an estate as long as they are adjacent. Popular land is being sold near plazas, big estates, roads and districts. For example, it's more expensive to buy land near the center plaza or near Vegas than it is to buy land in a big open area. It's also more popular to buy road-front parcels and estates because users will be running down the roads to explore. It will be difficult to explore in the big open areas, but users will be able to fly and teleport so you can market your parcel coordinates online to attract users.


How to Buy Virtual Land in Decentraland with MANA Tokens

Buying LAND in Decentraland can be difficult if you've never used cryptocurrency but it's actually easier and faster than using a credit card. An guess what? You don't give Decentraland your first name or your last name, never mind your social security number. You don't have to create a Decentraland account or user name. You simply identify yourself by signing into your Ledger (device) or Meta Mask (Chrome extension) which hold your cryptocurrency. You'll need to buy Ethereum and exchange it for MANA tokens. See my BELL token video and web page if you need help buying cryptocurrency for the first time. Then watch this video.


Don't buy over priced stocks (companies)

Stop looking at charts and start looking at financial statements. Learn how to value a company based on your risk level and expertise. Are you willing to risk your money in the latest technology company or pharmaceutical company looking to disrupt the industry? Or are you interested in risking your money with something more secure like McDonalds, Coca Cola or Disney World? In either case, you should make sure that the company has a solid (or at least positive) balance sheet, income statement and cash flow statement.

Diversify from Real Estate with Compound Interest

I've spent 15 years investing my savings into real estate because I've always wanted to survive on rental income. Even though real estate is the retirement plan I think about, I also have a Simple IRA that I contribute to at work. I add my contributions to the symbol SPY which is an index fund with low fees that follows the S&P 500 index of the 500 largest companies in the US. Aside from my current contributions to a Simple IRA and real estate, I'd like to start thinking about compound interest.

Reasons to BUY Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) PART 2

2 months after I made a video explaining why I would buy Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS), their price went from $226 to $172! So, I made another video explaining why I still think it's such a good deal, and I show how Facebook (NYSE: FB) is still NOT a good deal. FB dropped from $215 to $135 and I still wouldn't buy it. I explained both points of view in the video so that you can see where my assessment is coming from. You can buy GS for less than book value right now. These opportunities don't come around too often in the NYSE. You should take advantage by buying into the stock monthly instead of going all any given time.

How to Invest if you want to make Millions

Since you want to know how to invest to make millions of dollars, start by adding a zero to your current net worth. $0, $10, $100, $1,000, $10,000, $100,000, etc. Once you have $100,000 you can start to think about making $1 million dollars. Don't sprint to one million. Calculate the cash flow of every investment against the total amount invested to be sure you're making more than 10% and hopefully 20% when possible. Real estate is my favorite path to millions because the monthly rental profit is easy to weigh against the total amount invested, which compounds into the future.
