    • Hey guys, hope you are all well and have been surviving COVID. It has been a long time since this thread started, so I thought I would check in....   Today the price is reaching new all time highs again for 2021, currently at $69k for the day.     This time last year the price was $16747, so there has been a significant increase in price. Along the way there has been some dips in price too, but overall, the trend is still up.   This is the time of the year that we have all bee waiting for since the last halving. In previous bull runs there has been a lot of mania before the blow off top and the crash that follows. So far there is not nearly as much madness and craziness in the market as there was in previous bull runs. This makes me think that there is still more upside to go....   The main question that people are wanting to know is if bitcoin will reach the fabled $100k price this year, end of November / early December....   There are more and more well known people and companies (Tim Cook, Elon Musk, Jack Dorsey, Michael Saylor etc), getting involved in bitcoin, which is great, but the real FOMO madness has not started yet. I suspect that if bitcoin breaks $100k, then things are going to get absolutely mental. Every news platform will be broadcasting it, and we will get a ton of new people who want to get rich quick flooding into the market.   Have any of you guys dared to get some exposure to bitcoin?     The stock to flow model still seems to be holding for now, and if things happen similar to how they have before, the price will overshoot the $100k mark, before a correction. Nothing is certain....but it sure looks like things are going in that direction.   The S2F model predicts $100K AVERAGE for this halving period (and based on floor model we reach $100K this yr). S2FX model predicts $288K AVERAGE this cycle. The price needs to get a lot higher to have that high price as an average, so lets see how far it goes.   Locally we have for the first time reached a high of R1million per 1BTC in South Africa on 2 November already. This basically means that bitcoin has reached parity with the Rand.     There are 100 million satoshis in a bitcoin, and 100 million cents in R1million rand.   So lets see how crazy the next few months get, and if the price keeps going up into the new year, or if we peak sooner. Good luck!
    • Hi, colleagues   What do you think about property investment in Dubai? My friends bought a property in this city a few years ago. And now the value of real estate has almost doubled. I compared the prices on the website of a real estate agency in Dubai https://www.axcapital.ae/ Now I have accumulated a certain amount for investment, and I am considering different options. What do u think about this? Are there other investment options?
    • Greetings all.   Anybody here who can tell me why it would so hard to get funding to take over a running business, one thats been operating for 30 years with a well established client base and suppliers. Or someone that can point me in the right direction for applications to get these funds.   Regards
    • Investing in physical gold is always a good idea. It should always form part of your investment portfolio. But, Gold should be a long term investment. Do not buy and sell to make a quick profit. One can never predict the gold price in 5 or 10 years, but it has always shown great growth over the long term. Whenever, or wherever I can snatch up a 1/10th, 1/4, 1/2 or even full ounce at a good price, I do so.
