My Hypercommunity website may be down, but Hyperfund is going nowhere but up…

In an effort to become fully compliant as a Hyperfund member, I have taken down my website www.hypercommunity.africa so please don’t be alarmed if you try to visit the site only to see a “ SORRY!“ message. In its place, within the next week or two, will be a new site www.captainsincrypto.co.za (a fully compliant website that will hopefully add to your understanding of Hyperfund, and the Hypercommunity, and answer any questions you may have: regardless of whether you’re already a member of Hyperfund, or, indeed, looking to join Hyperfund. I look forward to you visiting.

Aside from running South Africa’s smallest ad agency, Kavonic Hone – see www.kavonichone.co.za – Gerard has been in the cryptocurrency space for a good 6 years and is an active and independent member of the Hypertech Group’s Hypercommunity. He is resident in Johannesburg South Africa and is contactable on whatsapp +27 83 444 9888 and the email addresses gerard@kavonichone.co.za and gerard@captainsincrypto.co.za
Anyone wanting information on the daily Hyperfund presentations or weekend training sessions or wanting a link to register on is welcome to contact him. As with all things crypto, it is hugely important to do a thorough due diligence before parting with one’s money and to be aware of any and all risks inherent.

The things people are saying about the Hypercommunity’s Hyperfund…

Being on the Hypercommunity’s international Telegram group, it’s hard not to see how many members are excited by what we have in Hyperfund with positive and excited comments coming from people all around the world – the Americas, Europe, Australasia, Asia and Africa, and from countries like the Philipines, Bahamas, Italy, New Zealand, Nigeria, the UK and Malaysia to mention a few.

What I was interested in was what my fellow Southern Africans had – and have – to say about not just the Hypercommunity, but Hyperfund itself. Hence a whole lot of calling and whatsapping over the last week or two…..

Whilst the majority of the following comments and observations are from people in my Hyperfund downline, some are from folk I have not yet met or spoken with personally.

“I was fortunate enough to be introduced into the Hypercommunity over 6 months ago… thus far it has been delivering as expected and I’m super-excited for the next 6 months. I would highly recommend Hyperfund to others” Mike, Indonesia

“I have been involved with Hyperfund for 9 months and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The product delivers as per their mandate and I have increased, and continue to increase, my funds with them. It has certainly enriched my life and has changed the lives of my friends who chose to partake in this awesome platform.” Carl, Gauteng, South Africa

“I have been in Hyperfund for a year now and am very impressed and excited with the results so far. Best of all is that I don’t have to network, I can just compound my own money and experience amazing growth” – TP Cape Town

“Being in Hyperfund is hugely rewarding and a huge step above. It’s absolutely life-changing” Kyle, Limpopo

“I was desperate for a solution to my financial dilemma, no great source of income and certainly not enough to retire on. I was open-minded and after much research decided Hyperfund was my potential gateway to financial freedom. Eight months down the road and I was not wrong. Hyperfund has become my pension fund in 8 months!” Mark, Johannesburg

“Hyperfund is amazingly rewarding.” Morgan, KwaZulu Natal

“My father got me into the Hypercommunity and Hyperfund and I will be telling all my friends at university about it. I log in daily to see how many rewards I’ve accrued!” Levi, Stellenbosch

“I try to do proper research and due diligence before I participate in any platform. I joined Hyperfund about a year ago and found it to be extremely professional and efficient. I would have no hesitation in recommending it if asked” Neels, Gauteng.

“I’ve been a member since early 2020. Understanding the platform at first was difficult, but now that I have a better understanding, I’m excited to be in Hyperfund and in the Hypercommunity” Lewis, Johannesburg

“I have been in for almost nine months. The first 6 months, I was compounding my daily profits. I have been withdrawing the profits without problems every fortnight and am very happy”. Ricks, Johannesburg

“With Hyperfund, the sky is the limit. Discover the positive impact of wealth on your life” Herman, Gauteng

“I have been in Hyperfund for 9 months and have had a good experience so far. The business has lived up to its promises and their support team is friendly and helpful” Mauritz, Richards Bay

“Ever since making contact with Gerard through one of his blogs I read, I feel I can call him my friend, because he has never abandoned me in my journey of trying to gain a better understanding about the crypto world. Through him I have met so many solid crypto enthusiasts whom I was able to surround myself with, discover more opportunities and gain a wider understanding of an industry which I have come to love and believe so much in. I am truly grateful”. Rolf, Greytown

“The Hypercommunity has afforded my family and I an opportunity to dream again and actually see when and how our dreams are coming true. It came at a time when we were facing such a difficult time that it felt as though nothing could change our situation. Hyperfund afforded us to dust ourselves off after a major fall. We are part of a community that not only tells you about the opportunity, but we have so much support. We bought our first membership on the 25th December 2020-testing the waters. Through training and support from our uplines, we bought more memberships. We are growing everyday and we are definitely looking forward to the future. From pain to plenty!!” Sam and Patricia Phala

“I got into Hyperfund August 2020. I can withdraw cash as a supplement on a monthly basis or compound ( which I do). As Einstein said, ” compounding is the 8th wonder of the world” L.Marais.

“I’ve been with Hyperfund for close on a year and whilst I didn’t fully understand it in the beginning I am today embracing of the opportunity in all respects. It’s an excellent business and I am happy to be a part of it” Warwick, Thailand

“I’ve been a member for nearly a year now. It’s gifted me welcome returns on a daily basis and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to others” Peter C-W, Cape Town

“Hyperfund is doing a really good job for me. I am glad I decided to work with you and look forward to a bright future” No name or location supplied.

“A brilliant business. And a brilliant business opportunity…” John (location not stated)

“Gerard, when you first told me about Hyperfund, I couldn’t make head or tail of it as you know. I just went with blind faith as I could see how excited you were about it. I am very pleased I joined. Thank you very much!!” Name withheld.

“For a crypto-related opportunity, the Hypercommunity and Hyperfund is seriously multi-dimensional. I like that. One is not reliant on just Bitcoin mining, for example..” John, Gauteng

“I like the sustainability of the community and I like the vision of the people behind it. I also like that the HyperTech Group works with Governments. Longevity is key for me, so I’m comfortable with where I’ve put my family’s money“ David, Gauteng

“My wife and I are hugely excited to be in Hyperfund and we have been rewarded handsomely for months already – without recruiting!!!” Leon, Mpumalanga

“The strategy we have in our Hyper team (of compounding and regularly withdrawing) is working so well, so it’s a definite thumbs up from us!” MM, KZN

“The support that we have as Hypercommunity members is very special and I like the fact that we have a South African Telegram group and also an international Telegram Group” Anonymous

“To be honest, I was a bit sceptical the first few months after joining but after making numerous withdrawals with no issues and getting all my capital back making me risk free, I am delighted to be in Hyperfund” Raymond (location not known).

“The way that we and our team work, which is to take out Bitcoin loans before funding our Hyperfund accounts, and then using those loaned funds to buy more packages on our bottom accounts, works wonders. I believe that everyone in Hyperfund should be doing this” Anonymous, Western Cape.

“Aside from a few technical issues (mostly in the registration process), everything keeps going well with Hyperfund. We are excited to be involved!” Pieter (location not known)

“Hugely rewarding is all we can say. Really, really pleased to be here!” Ashley.

“As a person in financial services, I am not permitted to sing the praises of crypto….but my wife can…and she loves Hyperfund and being a member of the Hypercommunity!” Name withheld, Johannesburg

“I battled to understand the concept of “rewards” at first, but the more webinars and training sessions I attend, the more I understand. So long as it pays me daily – which it does – I’m all good with the world” Thabo, Eastern Cape.

“I’ve been a member of the Hypercommunity for a few months now and have brought all my family members onboard. We are involved in a number of cryptocurrency and Bitcoin opportunities and platforms, but there is nothing like the Hypercommunity. It’s in a different league and we are excited!!” Liz, Gauteng

“Being an accounting type, I’m a numbers guy..and the numbers don’t lie. One could do really really well here” Anonymous

“We have had dealings with one of the companies comprising the Hypertech Group and they are solid. I joined the group’s Hypercommunity, reassured by our business experiences” Name not supplied

“Daily webinars, excellent training over weekends and top support do it for me and my team. We are more than comfortable being members of the community” Danie, Limpopo

“Anyone put off of Hyperfund by believing some of the stuff written about it on the internet is doing themselves a serious disservice. Our advice? Don’t believe everything you read!!!” Jay N, KZN.

“The difference between Hyperfund and other crypto platforms is that Hyperfund delivers while 95% of the others tend to disappear after being found to be nothing more than Ponzi schemes and scams. This is in our experience anyway. We have a growing number of people joining the Hypercommunity and everyone seems to be really, really happy” Danie, Mpumulanga, South Africa.

“The Hypercommunity stands for the advancement of the Blockchain and cryptocurrencies around the world and I am aligned and buy into this. I’m a believer” Thys, Tswane.

No doubt other comments will find their way into my email or whatsapp inbox over the next few days, but I’m sure that the above will send a clear message in the meantime ie that members of the Hypercommunity are happy being members – and that Hyperfund is delivering as is expected.

I am personally delighted to be a member of the Hypercommunity, as I have been for the last year or so and share the sentiment of one or two of the observations above…that Hyperfund IS a step above.

This is not to say of course that it is without risk. Crypto is of itself risky. So anyone looking to join the Hypercommunity and share in the rewards given daily must, must, must be aware of them.

The last blog article I wrote on Hyperfund spoke to this risk, and the need to minimise risk.

I am not licenced or permitted to give financial advice, but what I CAN do is share with members what I do and have done.

Am happy to engage further on whatsapp +27 83 444 9888 in this regard.

Bitcoin. The meat amidst the hype…

As mentioned in my last blog article, anyone who knows me or has been in a crypto business or platform of which I’ve been a member will know that I’ve been in the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency space for a good 6 years now, and that during this period have gained a fair bit of knowledge about Bitcoin in particular – something I put down to doing a lot of asking, and a lot of reading.

There is tons  of info on the internet around Bitcoin but one of the things I try to do is separate the “meat” from the “hype” – the fact from the fiction.

What interests me more than all the (often tedious) predictions of Bitcoin “going to the moon” and reaching one gazillion dollars in price by the end of the year are the “real world” stories – those covering what is actually happening on the ground.

This being the case, I found the article below to be particularly interesting and worth sharing:

Entitled “Miami mayor says city employees should be able to take their salaries in Bitcoin”, it reads:

“Miami city employees could soon choose to get their salaries paid in Bitcoin rather than USD. In an interview with Forbes, Mayor Francis Suarez said tangible paths to expand Bitcoin’s adoption throughout the city included enabling city employee salaries to be paid in BTC. Major figures in the cryptocurrency world have responded positively to the idea, with Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey calling it “smart” on Twitter. Gemini co-founder Tyler Winklevoss stated that the mayor is “leading the way for governments and Bitcoin.” Mayor Suarez told Forbes that due to the rise in crypto’s popularity among citizens, he wants to do everything he can to make Miami a Bitcoin-friendly city. Other proposals include allowing local fees and taxes to be paid in Bitcoin and certain other cryptocurrencies, as well as investing some of the city’s treasury into Bitcoin, following Microstrategy’s example. Although he isn’t sure of specific amounts, Suarez explained that the treasury investment would be structured as a public-private partnership, with the private partners receiving some of the rewards for alleviating some of the risks. He also revealed that he’s also considering financing his re-election campaign in Bitcoin. He isn’t the first to turn to Bitcoin to help fund political campaigns with Democrat Andrew Yang, California U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell, Minnesota U.S. Rep. Tom Emmer, and Libertarian Lara Loomer among U.S. politicians who have already accepted cryptocurrencies in past campaigns. The mayor believes Bitcoin will be the “biggest story for the next few years.” Late last year the mayor called Bitcoin a “stable investment” during an “incredibly unstable year.” Last week, he uploaded Bitcoin’s whitepaper onto the government’s website saying: “The City of Miami believes in Bitcoin and I’m working day and night to turn Miami into a hub for crypto innovation.” The mayor told Forbes that he has reached out to other states and jurisdictions, including Caitlin Long in Wyoming and Florida CFO Jimmy Patronis to help drive Bitcoin-friendly changes in Florida’s legislature. These efforts are part of the city’s push to be the next major tech hub in the U.S. with plans to grow innovation and tech growth in the next few years. Should these actions take effect, Miami’s 450,000 citizens may be encouraged to start transacting in Bitcoin on a regular basis, with the potential for this to spread to the rest of Florida’s 21.5 million residents. It would also make the city more attractive for blockchain-related tech companies and events. Major crypto conference Bitcoin 2021 announced earlier today it was moving from Los Angeles to Miami in June this year. Although Miami may be the first U.S. city to offer employees salaries in Bitcoin, other companies have also been exploring this. Last week, Cointelegraph reported that software development services provider Sequoia Holdings, based in Virginia, is offering employees the ability to sacrifice a portion of their salary to invest in either Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), or Ether (ETH)”.

Another story I found interesting was the well-publicised tweet two weeks back from ex-South African and purportedly the wealthiest person on the planet, Elon Musk. Containing simply the word “Bitcoin”, the tweet resulted in an approximate but immediate 20% spike in the Bitcoin price, due to the interest raised by his huge Twitter following..

Whilst the bitcoin price has retreated a tad, the fact that one simple tweet could elicit such interest is…well, interesting.

Also interesting was Ark Invest’s article entitled “What it would take for Bitcoin to hit $70K”. In its explanation, it states that bitcoin’s price is supported by “robust network fundamentals,” and that if more companies allocate a portion of their balance sheet to BTC, the price could skyrocket. In its annual Big Ideas report, the company states that the price of bitcoin would increase by roughly $40 000 if “all S&P 500 companies were to allocate 1% of their cash” to BTC. This scenario isn’t entirely unrealistic as support for the BTC network continues to grow. According to the report, bitcoin’s price increase seems to be driven less by hype. With the leading cryptocurrency appearing to gain more trust, some companies are considering it as cash on their balance sheets. At current values, a $40 000 gain would put Bitcoin’s price in the vicinity of $73 000 – whilst if S&P 500 companies allocated 10% of their cash reserves to BTC, the digital currency’s price could increase by $400 000. The influx of institutional and corporate buyers adds to the strong hands that currently make up the Bitcoin market. Industry data consistently shows that more than 60% of Bitcoin’s circulating supply hasn’t moved in a year, underscoring the conviction of long-term holders. MicroStrategy has led corporate America’s push into Bitcoin, with the data analytics firm accumulating nearly 71 000 BTC at a basis price of over $1.1 billion. Its holdings are currently worth roughly $2.4 billion. MicroStrategy and payment company Square “are showing the way for public companies to deploy bitcoin as a legitimate alternative to cash,” according to the company’s report.

Interesting stuff..

As mentioned previously, I am certainly no expert in Bitcoin – but I  AM fascinated by it.

I’m also no financial advisor and not equipped or licenced to give financial advice. So when asked whether it’s the time to buy Bitcoin, or whether it’s the right decision to buy Bitcoin, I tend to point people to the internet and encourage them to read up on the topic. After all, buying Bitcoin – any cryptocurrency for that matter – is a decision that only the individual can make, based on his or her risk profile.

What’s important is to be KNOWLEDGEABLE. And not to jump in because everyone else is jumping in.

Investing in cryptocurrencies (if “investing” is the right word!), is risky. It’s hugely important to be aware of those risks….

There are two websites I visit daily.

www.coindesk.com

and

www.cointelegraph.com

I’d encourage anyone interested in getting into the cryptocurrency space – whether with a view to buying Bitcoin, buying ethereum or any other coin – to consider doing the same.  After all, knowledge is power. Especially when it comes to cryptocurrencies, and the lack of understanding that often pervades the space…

Bitcoin. An interesting read…

Readers of my blog and anyone who knows me will know that I’ve been in the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency space for a good 6 years now, and may have gathered that whilst I am by no means a crypto expert, I have over the years gained a fair bit of knowledge about Bitcoin in particular – something I put down to doing a lot of reading.

I found the recent article below to be well written and really informative and thought to share it…

“Bitcoin is at it again. Last month, the price of the virtual currency quietly breached a new all-time high, cruising well past its prior peak of $19,600 set in 2017, and has been hovering around $36,000 at the time of writing. This follows a nearly 90 percent decline from those previous highs early in late 2018. It did so initially with such little fanfare that its renewed strength was dubbed the “quiet rally.” Perhaps most interesting about this price action — bitcoin is up nearly 1,000 percent from its March lows — has been the relative lack of mainstream enthusiasm. In the weeks following bitcoin’s first new all-time high in three years, Katy Perry did not paint her nails with bitcoin icons. Floyd Mayweather did not flamboyantly promote a crypto offering. The New York Times did not run an article titled “Everyone’s Getting Hilariously Rich, and You’re Not.” Google searches for “bitcoin” are still well below their 2017 peak. Entrepreneurs have continued building the financial infrastructure surrounding the asset — but they have done so in relative obscurity, basically ignored lately by the general public.

So what has been quietly going right with the internet’s native currency while conventional wisdom had consigned it to the tulip heap? Technologically, not much. The last major update to the core protocol — the actual rules for sending bitcoin — was accepted in July 2017. A new update to the protocol looks likely to be adopted by the community, but it carries only incremental improvements to privacy and efficiency. Implementing even these minor changes on the live protocol could take years.

The fact that, from a technical perspective, bitcoin is pretty static is one of its defining paradoxes: While its creation was a major technological leap — a dramatic recombination of elements from cryptography, computer science, economics, and p2p networking — the protocol itself is meant to be fairly rigid. As its pseudonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto said, “Once version 0.1 was released, the core design was set in stone for the rest of its lifetime.”

It’s not bitcoin that has changed over the last three years, but rather the world around it.

The entrepreneurs working to make cryptocurrency easier to acquire, hold, and transact with have been working diligently to improve this financial plumbing in anticipation of a full-scale monetization event. Today, it seems that this moment may be upon us.

Here are some of the key reasons I think bitcoin’s current bull run isn’t a fluke or a bubble.

For professional investors, there’s no longer career risk in buying Bitcoin.

This notion of stripping human discretion from a monetary system is so completely contrary to the way that central banking operates today that bitcoin is absolutely reviled by Establishment economists (see Paul Krugman’s and Nouriel Roubini’s Twitter feeds). Despite that, it keeps winning over waves of new converts. In its earliest days, bitcoin was embraced by venture capitalists and entrepreneurs like Mark Andreessen, Fred Wilson, and Chamath Palihapitiya, all of whom understood the explosive potential of network effects based on their experiences investing in software. Today, however, a new set of enthusiasts has emerged: veterans of the markets with decades of experience, more familiar with commodities and interest rates than tech startups.

These hedge-fund luminaries have lately been quite explicit with their reasons for allocating to the asset. Former Legg Mason CEO Bill Miller pointed to the unprecedented pace of money printing by the Federal Reserve and said of bitcoin: “It’s a technological innovation like we’ve never seen before, and it’s gaining acceptance every day.” Investor Stanley Druckenmiller, who famously participated in George Soros’s bet against the Bank of England, compared bitcoin favorably to gold and cited its 12-year track record and growing credibility. Hedge-fund icon Paul Tudor Jones, known for his currency bets, said in an interview: “I came to the conclusion that bitcoin was going to be the best of the inflation trades — the defensive trades.” So if you think governments and central banks around the world might be successful in their attempts to create higher inflation, and you take Tudor Jones’s analysis to heart, you just might find yourself investing in bitcoin.

Former high-profile skeptics on Wall Street have begun to reconsider their stance. Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock, which manages $7 trillion, had previously dismissed bitcoin. He now concedes that it could evolve into a global asset, potentially taking the place of gold — which in aggregate is worth nearly $10 trillion — in investor portfolios. JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon called bitcoin a “fraud” in 2017, but more recently he has backed away from those comments and started getting involved with players in the space. And Ray Dalio, who runs the world’s largest hedge fund, has tempered his prior skepticism of bitcoin, saying in a recent Reddit AMA, “I think that bitcoin (and some other digital currencies) have over the last ten years established themselves as interesting gold-like asset alternatives.”

When it comes down to the level of human decision-making at financial institutions, bitcoin now enjoys something it has never had in the past: You probably aren’t risking getting fired just for buying some. Herding is very common on Wall Street. Being wrong in an unconventional way can be career suicide. But now that bitcoin has begun to be accepted as a valid monetary asset in its own right on the Street, analysts and traders can consider buying it without risking embarrassment. Full-throated endorsements by respected commodities traders do something the bitcoiners on Crypto Twitter could not: They made bitcoin acceptable in the world of high finance.

That means institutional money is starting to pour into Bitcoin.

As recently as 2013, if you wanted to buy bitcoin, your best bet might have been wiring money to an unregulated exchange in Japan that began as a venue for swapping and selling Magic: The Gathering cards. (Not shockingly, that exchange was hacked — the circumstances are murky — and hundreds of millions of dollars worth of bitcoin was pilfered.) Which is to say, it was not the kind of investment that professional money managers would have ever considered. Even during the rather disorganized run-up to $20,000 in 2017, there was very little institutional money going into bitcoin. The price spike was mostly driven by retail investors piling into bitcoin, either with the expectation that they were front-running Wall Street, or as a vehicle to speculate on other tokens. But retail investors tend to be reactive, and when the price started to fall in 2018, a lot of them sold their bitcoin, licked their wounds, and moved on. By contrast, institutional investors — hedge funds, mutual funds, endowments, pensions, insurance companies, family offices, sovereign-wealth funds, and so on — represent a pool of money worth tens of trillions of dollars that is more behaviorally reliable. One massive change afoot in the world of crypto is that institutional investors are, for the first time ever, getting involved in bitcoin.

The biggest reason for that is that there have been massive advancements in the past three years in bitcoin’s financial infrastructure — particularly on the matter of custody. Which is to say, if you are an institutional investor and you want to buy some bitcoin, who is holding onto it for you? Unlike a retail investor, you aren’t going to keep the digital asset on a device in your desk drawer or access it through Coinbase’s iPhone app. Bitcoin exchanges like the soon-to-IPO Coinbase and the Winklevoss brothers’ Gemini were initially built mostly for retail cryptocurrency users, without taking the needs of institutions into account. But since 2017, a number of institutional-focused brokers and custodians have emerged: Coinbase launched a Prime offering; my former employer Fidelity — a multitrillion-dollar asset manager — launched Fidelity Digital Assets, focused on Bitcoin custody and execution for institutions; and many other big-money players have entered the game. Pension funds, endowments, and sovereign-wealth funds may not trust a crypto exchange, but they will find comfort in the familiar brand and large balance sheet of a counter-party like Fidelity. Here’s how this looks in practice: Recently, NYDIG, a subsidiary of the $10 billion asset manager Stone Ridge, facilitated a $100 million bitcoin purchase by insurance firm Mass Mutual; meanwhile, Coinbase helped the Virginia-based enterprise-software company Microstrategy buy and safeguard more than $1 billion worth of bitcoin.

As a consequence, large pools of capital have not only the justification, but also the tools to buy in. The $27 billion asset manager Ruffer Investment Company, which bills itself as an all-weather allocator, allocated 2.5 percent of its portfolio into Bitcoin, explaining: “Negative interest rates, extreme monetary policy, ballooning public debt, dissatisfaction with governments — all provide powerful tailwinds for bitcoin at a time when conventional safe-haven assets, particularly government bonds, are perilously expensive.” On December 16, Scott Minerd, the CIO of Guggenheim Investments, told Bloomberg that his analysis showed bitcoin had a value of $400,000 per coin — more than tenfold higher than current levels. And you can be sure that there are many more high-net-worth individuals, hedge funds, trusts, and family offices quietly allocating to the asset without explaining their reasoning on CNBC.

The U.S. government is flashing a green light.

On top of the infrastructure questions, a lot of investors have been wary of bitcoin over regulatory concerns. If you’re an institution, there’s no point in owning an asset that might one day be illegal. But there’s been a lot of good news for bitcoin bulls on this front too. In the U.S., the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), a top bank regulator, clarified that banks can store bitcoin private keys for their clients. With this newfound dispensation, it is just a matter of time before major banks begin offering bitcoin investment vehicles to their clients. You may not trust start-up crypto brokerages, but you almost certainly trust your global bank. Additionally, the OCC recently granted a federal bank charter to a dedicated “crypto bank” named Anchorage, paving the way for tighter integrations between the financial system and the cryptocurrency world.

In light of crypto startups entering the somewhat unfamiliar territory of regulated banking, established banks are seeing the opportunity in digital assets and have begun a rapprochement. As many entrepreneurs in the crypto space are aware, obtaining banking relationships in the U.S. was borderline impossible in the past. Today, multiple banks vie for the attention of crypto firms, as the crypto ecosystem is increasingly being seen as a market opportunity. Long gone is the mantra of 2017 naysayers, “Blockchain, not bitcoin.”

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission has also expressed an unambiguous view that digital assets like bitcoin and ethereum are commodities, putting them on firm footing in institutional portfolios and paving the way for regulated derivatives markets — just like those used to trade oil or gold or wheat futures. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange, which launched a bitcoin futures product on December 17, 2017 (the precise peak of the rally during the last cycle) subsequently launched options trading and has announced the launch of a futures product for ethereum, the second-largest cryptocurrency. Open interest in the bitcoin CME futures market reach at all-time highs in recent weeks. When players like $110 billion hedge fund Renaissance Technology seek exposure to bitcoin — whether long or short — it tends to be through these kinds of derivatives.

Bitcoin has a breakout new evangelist.

Perhaps the most ardent recent bitcoin convert is Microstrategy CEO Michael Saylor, who deployed over a billion dollars of corporate assets into Bitcoin, making his firm the first publicly-traded company to hold bitcoin as a balance-sheet asset. He did so out of the belief that “bitcoin will provide the opportunity for better returns and preserve the value of our capital over time compared to holding cash.”

Saylor followed up his massive commitment to bitcoin using both personal assets, corporate treasury assets, and the proceeds of a new debt offering by embarking on a podcast and media tour to promote the virtues of bitcoin. He has called bitcoin “the most efficient system in the history of mankind for channeling energy through time and space”; lambasted traditional measures of inflation, arguing that they are significantly understated; called the dollars held in Microstrategy’s corporate treasury a “melting ice cube”; and characterized his bitcoin position as a prudent hedge rather than speculation.

And while Saylor’s proclamations may sound hyperbolic at times, his mammoth financial commitment to his ideas lends him the standing to opine freely on the asset. It has also worked out well for him so far: Microstrategy stock traded around $120 before the company announced it was putting some of its reserves into bitcoin; now shares trade at nearly $600.

Billionaire converts like Saylor, Fidelity’s Abigail Johnson, and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, among many others, lend the asset meaningful credibility — replacing to some extent the fringe libertarians and crypto-anarchists who for years were the loudest proselytizers. Listen to these new investors and themes repeat throughout. Bitcoin’s continued resilience in the face of protocol forks, bugs, exchange hacks is frequently cited. It boasts a near 100 percent record of uptime since inception and has settled trillions of dollars worth of transactions without reversal. In a monetary regime where negative real interest rates seem entrenched, and likely to go lower yet, zero-yield monetary assets like gold and bitcoin hold new appeal. Many former skeptics cite its recovery from the crash of 2018 as evidence for its strength as a store of value. And indeed, it’s often the second rally that convinces. The first time, your interest may be piqued, but you are wary of buying into something that looks like a bubble. The second time, you realize that what you mistook for a bubble was in fact a cyclical process in a longer-term trend.

A lot of people are nervous about the global monetary system — especially the dollar.

A major difference between bitcoin’s prior rally in 2017 and its resurgence this year: Three years ago, bitcoin appreciated sharply (and gave up its gains nearly as quickly) owing to its role as the reserve currency for the cryptocurrency industry. This was a largely self-contained phenomenon, mostly insulated from the world at large. The bitcoin rally beginning in 2020, by contrast, has its roots in widespread concern that massive amounts of money printing and debt spending taking place around the world will lead to currency instability or debasement.

The COVID crisis — and its associated economic fallout — gave central banks license to accelerate their rate of money creation to finance sharply higher deficits. The U.S. Federal Reserve, the world’s most important central bank, has been particularly aggressive on monetary stimulus, and U.S. money supplies have spiked. Meanwhile, the dollar has started looking wobbly to a lot of investors. When measured against a basket of other sovereign currencies, it initially rallied in spring 2020, but then entered a long slide in value over the rest of the year. Dollar bears (and there are many), see a landscape of more and more U.S. debt, fewer natural buyers for it, and diminishing faith in the dollar as a global reserve currency — and other major currencies facing their own major issues.

This ebbing faith in the dollar and the stability of the current global monetary system has brought a lot of new interest and money into bitcoin, plausibly described as the world’s hardest currency, with a predictable monetary issuance rate trending to zero. And while there are many inflation hedges available to allocators seeking to preserve their wealth, bitcoin also offers a growth bet on a new transactional system — analogous to buying stock in a growing tech giant. In a sense, it’s two bets in one: a sound, unimpeachable monetary protocol and the reserve asset for a rapidly expanding crypto-financial network.

Despite bitcoin’s banner year, it still commands a minute portion of the world’s assets and has been adopted by relatively few. Credible estimates from the Cambridge Center for Alternative Finance peg the global cryptocurrency user base at just over 100 million individuals — or barely over one percent globally. At its current market capitalization of $650 billion, bitcoin is still only worth about 6 percent of the value of aboveground gold and 2 percent of the value of U.S. Treasuries, the world’s premier store of value asset. But it is also true that it has quadrupled in the last several months. As ever with bitcoin, there will be those who point to the latter fact and say that there is danger ahead. Personally, I think the story is far from done and that this revolutionary digital asset still has a long way to run”.

An interesting article..(with thanks to the Bitcoin Coach).

I’m often asked about Bitcoin…where to buy it, how to buy it, whether to hold on to it, when to sell it, when to buy it, what price it can get to etc etc….but all I can really do is share my thoughts, with my not being an expert as mentioned earlier…

Whether to buy Bitcoin, when to buy Bitcoin etc are decisions that only you as readers of my blog can decide.

What I CAN share is WHERE you can buy Bitcoin in South Africa ie www.luno.com, www.altcointrader.co.za, www.valr.co.za and www.capecrypto.com and WHAT you should do with it once you have Bitcoin in your Bitcoin wallet ie KEEP IT SAFE by protecting it with Google Authenticator (2FA) or Authy.

You may also want to look at how to provide yourself with a degree of protection against a falling (weakening) Bitcoin price…as this WILL happen from time to time…but this is something I could send you information on should you ever be interested. (If you are, you’re welcome to message me on whatsapp +27 83 444 9888).

The most important thing is to familiarise yourself with all risks associated with Bitcoin (all cryptocurrencies for that matter) and all risks associated with Bitcoin or crypto-related platforms. The simple fact is, crypto is a high risk high reward play and anyone entering the space for the first time would do well to familiarise him or herself with the risks before diving in.

Also important to realise is that Bitcoin is a free-standing cryptocurrency and that it needs to be differentiated from the likes of MTI and Finalmente, which were platforms around Bitcoin and which ultimately cost a lot of people a lot of money…..

The MTI scam, the Bitcoin price, and lessons learnt for the year ahead….

The last two weeks or so have been a rollercoaster ride of note..

First the developments on the MTI front, which shocked and outraged a good number of the 280 000 members around the world, and then, to add salt to a fresh wound, a huge spike in the Bitcoin price for those who had just lost their Bitcoin…or a good portion of it, any rate.

It’s been a stressful time indeed.

Nobody could have anticipated that MTI (Mirror Trading International) would have collapsed so spectacularly, so suddenly, and so tragically, after approximately 18 months of such stellar growth. From a small and informal family and friends business in March/April 2019 to a substantial global business of some 280 000 members in December 2020, MTI is now in the throes of liquidation – with absolutely devastating consequences for many.

Tragedy on a grand scale. And, if you believe all the coverage on social media, due to the devious machinations of CEO Johann Steynberg – and, who knows, quite possibly those close to him as well.

At the time of writing, Johan Steynberg is purportedly in hiding in Brazil. Or Panama. Or elsewhere in South America.

What’s important is that he is urgently located and access to the MTI Bitcoin wallets obtained, as the livelihoods of tens of thousands of MTI members depend on it.

Whilst investigations are apparently underway by enforcement agencies, and the facts and truth are still to be revealed, it beggars belief that a man who until recently was held up as a paragon of virtue, a “really nice guy” and a person who stood up for the “little guy” and the financial empowerment of those struggling globally, could instead well be a scamster of note, and someone out only to look after his own personal interests.

Anyone who has read my blog articles on MTI will know that I’ve always perceived Johan Steynberg to be a decent type: a quietly-spoken Polokwane-based computer programmer and family man out to do good and help the less fortunate. By all accounts, he had a big heart and was well regarded in his community. Yes, I was aware (as were countless other MTI members) of his involvement with two network marketing opportunities that had gone belly-up previously. Thing is, he was upfront about his involvement in these failed ventures: something that won him plaudits for his “honesty” amongst many. After all, many of us in the cryptocurrency space have found ourselves victims of scams, and so it was easy to also view him as a victim.

We watched him on MTI webinars – taking questions and answering them with sincerity. Friends of his – people who had seemingly known him for years – spoke of him in glowing terms. Friendly, giving, generous, honest. Those MTI leaders who flew up to Johannesburg to meet with him to have a look at the trading prior to getting involved with MTI believed him to be genuine and an all-round good guy. Thumbs-up were given all round.

It was only after news broke in December following his leaving the country and the resultant disappearance of the MTI membership’s Bitcoin that we started to imagine the “real” Johann Steynberg; a seemingly dishonest and devious character out to defraud. (This, IF reports in the mainstream media and social media are to be believed).

I have always regarded myself as a decent judge of character, but IF Johan Steynburg is found to be guilty, boy, did I get this one wrong. As did many, many others, I’m sure.

Due to my online MTI presence, I have received many messages from MTI members who just cannot get over what has happened: who cannot believe  that Steynberg may well not be who they thought he was.

Fact is, we as MTI members have been horribly blindsided. How can someone we all held up as decent and hardworking – a CEO often called “the hardest working CEO ever” – do a “runner”, leaving behind his wife and daughter in the process? Especially one who was purportedly extremely wealthy prior to the advent of MTI, and who, to all intents and purposes, had no need to run off with the Bitcoin of its members?

Again, this assumes that he IS guilty – that he acted alone, and that he indeed pulled the strings. (The jury seems to still be out on this…)

The real tragedy here of course is all the people who have been left destitute by the collapse of the company. Those who gave up their jobs to work MTI as a full time business. Those who took out loans on their properties to fund their MTI accounts. Those who cashed in their pensions to maximise their MTI weekly binary commissions….

Whilst there were those who seemingly lost millions through MTI’s collapse, it’s the pensioners and others who put their last pennies into MTI who I feel really sorry for, and I fervently hope that if he is ever located and brought back to South Africa, he – at the very least – honours all withdrawals made and sees to it that all those who have suffered losses are paid back what’s due to them. Time will tell of course, and the truth will out (as it always does).

The double whammy here (and it’s a cruel one indeed) is the recent sharp spike in the Bitcoin price.

At a time when members should have been delighted by this jump in the price of Bitcoin (a higher Bitcoin price would have boosted their MTI weekly binary commissions), the only real beneficiary now is the person (or persons) who stole the Bitcoin of MTI’s members and have access to the Bitcoin. (A tragic case of the rich getting richer and members being left to rue the Bitcoin they should have had). Talk about there being no justice!

Speaking of the Bitcoin price: those people with Bitcoin and who did NOT suffer losses through the MTI scam will be smiling. Who would have thought that a price in excess of $30 000 per Bitcoin would be seen so soon?

By all accounts, 2021 is shaping up to be a really good year for Bitcoin – primarily for two reasons:

The growing adoption of the cryptocurrency by institutions (think large-scale bitcoin purchases by the likes of Paypal, MicroStrategy, MassMutual and others)
The amount of Bitcoin that is “stagnant” and not moving (there can only ever be 21 million Bitcoin, and if the vast majority of Bitcoin in circulation is not moving to exchanges and is being held by “whales” with no intention of selling, there is only a limited supply for buyers to get their hands on).

Well-known and respected Macro investor Raoul Pal believes it’s possible for the price of Bitcoin to reach between $400 000 and $1.2 million by the end of this year if trends are to continue – whilst Galaxy Digital founder and CEO Mike Novogratz says major firms have changed their tune on crypto in the last three years, potentially affecting the supply of new coins. “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” author Robert Kiyosaki believes it’s just a matter of time before Bitcoin hits $50 000, whilst Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock – the world’s largest asset manager – feels that Bitcoin could well “evolve into a global market”.

There just doesn’t seem to be much in the way of a significant rise in the Bitcoin price this year, and continuous Governmental printing of fiat currency globally is essentially providing wind in bitcoin’s sails…

Lessons learnt for the year ahead?

Being a victim of the MTI scam has taught me a number of lessons. Amongst them?

The importance of doing a THOROUGH due diligence on any crypto-related platform or business opportunity you’re looking to join, and asking the hard questions.
The importance of risk mitigation

Risk mitigation encompasses a) investing only funds you can afford to lose and b) withdrawing your capital as soon as you can so you are essentially “in” risk-free.

In terms of a due diligence, ask the questions that others are not asking (due to them coming across as “silly” or “foolish”). After all, it’s YOUR money you’re investing so you have the right to ask as many questions as you like.

Another lesson learnt is: BE LESS TRUSTING OF PEOPLE. This is not to say be UNTRUSTING – just LESS trusting! There are many, many scammers out there, just waiting to relieve you of your hard-earned funds. A lesson that approximately 280 000 MTI members now know only too well…

Applying these lessons could well lessen any pain down the road. The crypto space is clearly high risk and anyone entering it needs to be aware of the risks. Cold comfort I know for those who have been duped out of their Bitcoin though….

The HyperTech Group’s Hypercomunity and Hyperfund. As endorsed by The Satoshi Show.

It’s always good to have what one is involved in endorsed by the likes of The Satoshi Show, an American cryptocurrency-related show that has gained a reputation for offering an incisive look into cryptocurrency offerings that are deemed to have ticked all the boxes.

The show’s hosts, Troy Rejda and David Chandler, have been in the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency space for some time, and like many of us, are alert to the fact that amongst all the Bitcoin scams and cryptocurrency ponzi schemes out there, there are crypto platforms that are honest, ethical, stable, sustainable and above all, that DELIVER. They’ve made it their business to analyse these platforms, and to dig deep to get at the truth (so that they are who they say they are, that they have offices where they say they do, and so on and so on…).

Invariably, this means calls or visits to the offices, interviews with the founders or leaders and an-depth look at the compensation plan to see whether the stated returns are indeed actual returns.

Following as thorough a due diligence as possible, Troy and David then arrive at a decision as to whether they are sufficiently comfortable recommending the platform on the Satoshi Show, or not. Invariably, being investors and network marketers themselves, they personally buy into the recommended platform and use the show to a) explain it to subscribers to the show and b) promote their own involvement in the said platform.

When I was looking at joining MTI – Mirror Trading International – about 10 months back, I remember sitting through their explanation of the business and being impressed by it. Whilst I was probably going to join MTI as a member regardless, The Satoshi Show’s recommendation of MTI and subsequent interview of MTI CEO Johann Steynberg could well have been the sealant in the decision. I’m still an MTI member and regard joining the business as one of my best decisions ever.

I say “one of my best decisions ever” as the other cryptocurrency business that I’m actively involved in is in a different magnitude.

It’s the Hypertech Group’s Hyperfund, and it’s been interesting to see that it’s recently been endorsed by The Satoshi Show. Not that an endorsement by an external party is particularly necessary, but it was comforting to hear Troy and David speaking so highly of it – and essentially corroborating what many of us in the Hypercommunity have believed since we first joined ie that Hyperfund is just on a different level.

Whilst their explanation of the business and business opportunity didn’t really tell me anything I didn’t already know (after all, I’ve been a member of the Hypercommunity and invested in its Hyperfund for a good 6 months already and have a fairly good understanding of things), I felt that they did a good job covering the salient points – which were:

That the HyperTech Group’s Hypercommunity is unlike anything we’ve yet seen.

That, as the world’s strongest Blockchain alliance, it’s attracting considerable interest globally, due to:

The earnings potential being huge
The people behind it being household names in the cryptocurrency and blockchain space

with Ryan Xu (founder of the HyperTech Group) being the majority shareholder of five Australian and NASDAQ listed Blockchain tech companies, the founder of Collinstar Capital (one of the world’s largest blockchain venture capital firms), the co-founder of the world’s first non-profit Blockchain knowledge hub, Blockchain Centre, and a shareholder in the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, Binance.

with Sam Lee (Chairman of the HyperTech Group) being the founder and CEO of Blockchain Global, co-founder of Blockchain Centre, a frequent guest on CNN, Bloomberg, BBC and Forbes, and a sought-after keynote speaker, having spoken at the United Nations and World Economic Forum summits.

with Jayden Wei (CEO of the HyperTech Group) being Executive Director of Collinstar Capital, CEO of Molecular Future, co-founder of HyperDAO – and an experienced Fund Manager skilled in Portfolio Management,
Risk Management, Corporate Finance, and Corporate Advisory services.

and with Roy Lam (Chief Intelligence Officer of the HyperTech Group) owning 11.9% of Australia’s second largest stock exchange (National Stock Exchange of Australia) and widely regarded as the “smartest man in Hong Kong”.

That the HyperTech Group comprises four industry-leading Blockchain companies, namely:

CollinStar
Blockchain Global
Digital X
HCash.

That these four companies power the HyperCommunity ecosystem: the world’s largest Blockchain community. Funded by crypto industry giants with the aim of putting its members’ digital assets to work to generate daily rewards into the future, CollinStar Capital, Blockchain Global, Digital X and HCash provide the community with world-class support, resources,  funding and access to their proprietary market-making system.

That the Group’s vision is to advance Blockchain technology through the creation of non-profit Blockchain education centres around the globe with a view to educating people in the “new economy” and providing the average person the opportunity to achieve lasting financial freedom. To this end, the group has as an end-goal a community of millions of members, thousands of tokens, multiple income-generating revenue streams and a 2023 listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange via a $300 billion IPO.

And that there are essentially two ways to personally benefit:

By joining as a passive participant
By joining as an active participant

A passive participant being one who invests with no interest in introducing others and building a team.

Introducing people to the Hyperfund Global opportunity is entirely optional. Simply purchasing a Hyperfund package or multiple packages and doing nothing further than adopting a “re-buying” strategy is a perfectly sound and acceptable practice and is an option selected by many. Those interested in accelerating their earnings and opening up further revenue streams by introducing others will lean towards building a HyperFund Global business.

One thing that really struck me was how excited Troy was about the Hypertech Group’s vision, mission and resources. Whilst I’m sure that he and David are excited by ALL the platforms they recommend and participate in, I sensed they were in awe of the Hypertech Group’s Hyperfund, how big it is and how big it will be…

I first heard of the Hypercommunity when it was brought to Africa by a person I work closely with, and consider my partner.

This was at the beginning of this year, when I was asked to be on an important call and told that what we would soon be involved in “would be HUGE”. Turns out that he had just concluded an in-depth 3 month due diligence on the Hypertech Group and announced that it was “without doubt, time to get in”.

I joined the Hypercommunity in May of this year – with the intention of putting monies into Hyperfund, but not recruiting. We had done our calculations and saw how it was possible to self-finance with a structure that would reward us handsomely into the future.

It was only some time after this that we felt that what we had here was too good not to share. The result is that I now have a considerably large – and mostly Africa-based – team growing in leaps and bounds.

I have recently put up a website www.hypercommunity.africa – intended not just as a resource for my team members, but to show people (especially on the African continent) exactly what it is that we have here, and how by joining the Hypercommunity and buying a Hyperfund package, so many people can change their lives for the better.

As is the case around the world, the Covid pandemic has devastated people’s lives and their means of even putting food on the table. It’s a tragic state of affairs and people everywhere are in urgent need of a hand up. That hand, in my opinion anyway, lies in the Hypercommunity’s Hyperfund.

It all starts with getting onto one of the daily Zoom call presentations, doing a due diligence, understanding the risks, and registering on the link of an existing Hyperfund member.

Anyone interested is welcome to contact me. Whether from Africa, or further afield.

The Hypercommunity already has more than 100 000 members. In time, it will have millions of members. It’s worth looking into for sure. My opinion only, of course, but one that’s now shared by the co-hosts of the Satoshi Show, no doubt…

Thinking of joining the Hypercommunity and buying into Hyperfund? Because there are NO commissions…

It’s surely no surprise, but one of the first things looked at by network marketers (or anyone looking for an online business opportunity, for that matter) is the compensation plan and the commissions paid on “recruiting” and introducing new members so as to build a team.

So on looking into the Hypercommunity and Hyperfund opportunity, there is often a degree of consternation amongst those in the network marketing or affiliate marketing community, looking for the “next best thing”.

Why? Because there is no real “compensation plan” as such and there are no “commissions” paid.

So, where is the incentive to introduce others and build a team one might ask? And it would be a good question TO ask.

There are two parts to the answer.

The first is that any person joining the Hypercommunity and buying into its Hyperfund DOES NOT HAVE TO RECRUIT. It is absolutely not mandatory and entirely optional.

One can self-fund one’s entire Hyperfund structure – and still earn handsomely.

The second part of the answer?

The incentive attached to introducing others and building a team lies in something called “accelerated rewards”. The benefit of which being that they accelerate the rate at which you are repaid your initial capital.

Now, I am acutely aware that this may make ZERO sense to someone new to the Hypercommunity or hasn’t joined yet. Hence a quick explanation:

When you join the Hypertech Group’s Hypercommunity and buy a Hyperfund Global package, you are buying into a convertible bond that pays you back over a 600 day period. Payments are made into one’s back office in the form of “rewards” at between 0.5% and 1% per day. (0.5% a day if you are a “passive” investor and between 0.5% and 1% if you are an “active” investor and/or teambuilder). These are known as Hyperdrive rewards and each time a member has accrued 50HU in rewards, that member should “rebuy” – with each “rebuy” constituting a new $50 package that runs for a further 600 days.

By adopting this “rebuying” strategy, one ends up with a good number of $50 packages by the end of the first 600 days, with each NEW package running for another 600 days and rewarding you with a minimum of 0.5% of the $50, daily.

This is essentially how you earn big through Hyperfund. Not by earning commissions, but by ACCELERATING YOUR REWARDS.

And lest you think that “earning rewards” is in any way inferior to earning “commissions”, think again. Because there are potentially significant earnings to be had here.

Obviously, the faster you are able to accelerate your rewards, the less time you would need to wait between “rebuys” and the more package “rebuys” you’ll be able to do per month, per week or – if you’re climbing the ranks
(more about this in a bit), per DAY. (Already, there are many members doing multiple rebuys per day).

One can accelerate one’s rewards in two ways:

By putting together a multi-position strategy, which you can personally fund.

By introducing others, and encouraging them to duplicate your multi-position strategy.

As mentioned previously, “recruiting” others and building team is entirely optional.

If you are a network marketer and team builder, joining the Hypercommunity will really appeal to you as you will find yourself exceptionally well-rewarded.

But if you are NOT into building a team and are more comfortable “self-funding”, no problem at all. It then comes down to how much you are prepared to PERSONALLY “invest”. (I use the word “invest” only because it’s the easiest and most descriptive word to use, even though I’m not a financial advisor and not qualified to offer financial advice).

Those who have studied the Hyperfund model and understand how to benefit from it the most typically create a multi-position structure across a number of levels, putting most of their funds into their top and bottom accounts, and rebuying in the bottom account. But it all comes down to the amount allocated….

The minimum is $300, with the cost of the packages being $300, $500 and $1000. (Payment to be in the USDT ECR token).

What’s important is a structure that works for YOU and that accelerates YOUR Rewards, based on your budgeted allocation.

Depending on the team you join, you may find an existing member within that team who could help put a structure together for you.

The team that I’m a part of hosts weekly Wednesday zoom calls in which a considerable amount of time is allocated to structures, and the importance of putting the right structure in place from the get-go. Our next Zoom call presentation will likely only be in January, however….

The bottom line is that the HyperTech Group’s Hypercommunity serves both teambuilders and “self-investors”. And regardless of which “camp” one falls into, the rewards are decidedly handsome…especially if the recommended “rebuying” or “compounding” strategy is strictly adhered to.

I mentioned “climbing the ranks” earlier…

Within Hyperfund Global, there is a ranking program in which one can progress to EXPERT level, then PROFESSIONAL level, then V1 level (VIP1), then V2 level (VIP2) and all the way up to V5 level (VIP5). These ranks are determined by your team’s sales volume and the higher the rank, the higher one’s daily earnings. (These are over and above one’s Hyperdrive rewards and could be significant in time).

Having been a member of the Hypercommunity for nearly 6 months now, it’s very clear that what we have here is so much bigger than just another cryptocurrency platform and so much more than just another online business opportunity.

It’s an entire ecosystem, of which its Hyperfund is just a part.

It’s obviously an important part though, and undoubtedly the component that will attract many thousands of members to the Hypercommunity in the years ahead.

The fact that there are no “commissions” as such will not dissuade the network marketers out there. Once the business model of being “rewarded” is fully understood, and once it’s seen just how “rewarding” purchases of Hyperfund Global packages can be, the penny will drop for a great many people….

Hyperfund will be HUGE and I am beyond excited. Truly.

Anyone interested in joining the Hypercommunity and buying a Hyperfund Global package (one can buy as many as one wants) should of course do a thorough due diligence and be aware of any risks before doing so. As with everything in the crypto space, there will always be risk and before parting with your hard-earned monies (or Bitcoin), it’s important that ALL risks are thoroughly evaluated.

The following two websites www.thehyperfund.com and https://hypertechgrp.com will provide a good overview of things, whilst you may find my own personal website https://hypercommunity.africa worth visiting.

Is the Hypercommunity’s Hyperfund just ANOTHER online cryptocurrency platform and business opportunity?

In my opinion, and I’m sure in the opinion of many people who have already joined the HyperTech Group’s fast-growing Hypercommunity, the answer is an emphatic NO.

It is so much bigger than just another crypto platform and so much more than just another online business opportunity.

The majority of cryptocurrency opportunities are one-dimensional. Not that there is anything wrong with them being so. As an example: you put Bitcoin into an account you’ve created and the company (or platform) either mines it for you, or trades it for you. That’s it. You deposit and you withdraw. Simple.

Anyone who knows me or follows my blog will know that for nearly 10th months now, I’ve been a member of MTI – Mirror Trading International: a simple and uncomplicated business.

I’ve also been a member of the HyperTech Group’s Hypercommunity for some time and am invested in the Hypercommunity’s Hyperfund. (When I say “invested”, I’ve bought Hyperfund Global packages and put togther a structure delivering daily rewards).

To be honest, it’s a more complex business than MTI – with more “moving parts” – and it’s also more “dimensional”.

The Hypercommunity is essentially an ecosystem: of which its Hyperfund is for want of a better word, its “investment” component. It’s only one component, however. One look at the Hyperpay app will reveal that there are a number of different aspects and areas to the business, with defi mining, asset mapping, instant trading, liquidity staking and cloud mining on offer.

There’s also the Hypermall online shopping platform, Hypercash and an upcoming multi-billion dollar real estate Blockchain project plus a number of exciting partnerships in the works, whilst the soon-to-be launched Hypertalk chat app can also be looked forward to.

Then there’s the Hypercommunity’s Bitloan function: an impressive value-add and one that is being taken advantage of by a growing number of members. Essentially it allows one to borrow against a number of coins at an extremely favourable rate. So, if you are a believer in say, Bitcoin, you can borrow against the Bitcoin you already have using it as a collateral in your Hyperpay app. Upon receiving the loan, you can then use that Bitcoin to – for example – purchase additional Hyperfund Global packages without having to sell your existing Bitcoin. This is a gamechanger for many members, especially those who believe that 2021 will be a huge year for Bitcoin and that the Bitcoin price will skyrocket. Now, by taking advantage of the Hypercommunity’s bitloan facility, one can put one’s Bitcoin to good use without parting with it. This stands true for a number of other coins too.

The Hypercommunity is not just about enriching its members financially, however. Key to its existence is the objective of building awareness of the benefits of the Blockchain and cryptocurrencies globally. This educational component is a hugely important aspect and a core focus of the HyperTech Group. Whilst true that the majority of people joining the Hypercommunity are doing so to financially-empower themselves, the four companies behind the community and making up the Hypertech Group have the following as a driving force:

Taking cryptocurrencies to the masses and educating Governments and other bodies on the importance and benefits of Blockchain technology.

The four companies comprising the HyperTech Group are:

Digital X, which is a Blockchain and crypto asset finance company with offices in New York, Perth and Sydney. It’s listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and has featured on SkyNews, The Australian, Business Insider, Financial Review, Forbes, NASDAQ, Bloomberg and the Sydney Morning Herald amongst other media publications and channels. See www.digitalx.com

CollinStar, which was established in 2015 and is today one of the world’s leading blockchain and cryptocurrency investment firms, enjoying the support of both the Australian and Chinese governments. It has offices in Hong Kong and Australia. See www.collinstar.com

Blockchain Global, which was founded in 2014 as a company specialising in Mergers and Acquisitions and Investment and Tech Incubation. Since opening its door,, it has funded more than 80 successful start-ups with a total investment of over US$300 million. It has a global presence with over 500 employees and 23 offices around the world. It has listed 5 companies on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, ASX and NASDAQ and works with some of the largest Government organisations and multinational corporations. These include the World Economic Forum, United Nations, Amazon Web Services, FinTech Australia and Microsoft. See www.blockchainglobal.com

HCash, which is a decentralised and open source cross-platform cryptocurrency designed to facilitate the exchange of information between blockchains and non-blockchain networks and is a highly secure network featuring quantum-resistant signature technology. It’s listed on more than 16 top global exchanges and is funded by Government organisations and a number of the world’s top Blockchain research universities. See www.h.cash

With the HyperTech Group’s vision being the advancement of Blockchain technology through the creation of non-profit Blockchain education centres around the globe, and educating people in the “new economy” and helping them benefit from it, the group has as an end-goal a community of millions of members, thousands of tokens in its ecosystem and a 2022 listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

So, again, a whole lot bigger than just another crypto opportunity!

Anyone wanting to financially benefit through their membership of the Hypercommunity is provided the opportunity to purchase Hyperfund Global packages costing between $300 and $1000 (payable only using the USD Tether ECR 20 token)..but only after registering on the link of an existing Hypercommunity member.

The decision of anyone joining would then be to either be a passive member or an active member ie introducing others – or not.

The Hypercommunity is still very much in its infancy, being not even a year old. By 2023, all going well, the Hypertech Group will likely be a listed entity on the Hong Stock Exchange following a $300 billion IPO listing and as members of the community helping enable this, the next two years will be hugely exciting, and quite possibly, hugely rewarding too..

Just my opinion, of course…

In the meantime, anyone interested in joining the Hypercommunity should do a thorough due diligence and be aware of any risks. As with everything in the crypto space, there is risk and before parting with your hard-earned monies (or Bitcoin), it’s important that all risks are thoroughly evaluated.

The following two websites www.thehyperfund.com and https://hypertechgrp.com will provide a good overview of things, whilst you may find my own personal website https://hypercommunity.africa worth visiting.

Also worth joining are the daily (evening) Zoom call presentations – whilst the person who told you about the Hypertech Group, its Hypercommunity and Hyperfund should be able to answer any questions you might have.

The Hypertech Group’s Hyperfund. It’s compensation plan basically explained..

With the rapid growth in the number of people joining the HyperTech Group’s Hypercommunity comes a corresponding growth in the number of members not fully understanding the compensation plan….not that the term “compensation plan” is actually correct, as what we have here is more a case of being rewarded in the form of passive rewards and “hyperdrive” rewards (known as “accelerated” rewards).

Confused? Don’t be, as the explanation following will hopefully clear things up a bit…

When one joins the Hypercommunity as a member, one has the option of buying a Hyperfund Global package.

There are three packages to choose from, with the only difference between them, being the cost; 300HU, 500HU and 1000HU – with 1 HU equating to $1.

When you buy a package, it runs for 600 days with you receiving between 0.5% and 1% per day every day in the form of “rewards”.

These rewards can be found in your back office, and accumulate daily.

Once you have 50HU in rewards, you can “rebuy” by clicking the “Hyperdrive membership (rebuy) 50HU” button on the home screen of your Hyperfund app. Each time you do a “rebuy”, you are essentially buying another package – without paying a cent more.

This new package then also runs for 600 days, rewarding you with ANOTHER 0.5% per day. (This 0.5% equates to either $1.50, $2.50 or $5 being 0.5% of the cost of the package you initially bought)

By adopting this “rebuying” strategy, you will – or could – end up with a sizeable number of packages by the end of the first 600 days. So, to break this down so it’s easily understood, you start with one package (or more than one package – your choice!) and after 600 days, end up with a larger number of packages each rewarding you with passive daily rewards.

Which begs the question: what can you do with these rewards?

The answer? Withdraw them, and exchange them into the coin of your choice – be it a stable coin like USDT (Tether), a utility coin like Bitcoin – or any other of the options provided. Once you have eg Bitcoin, you can exchange it into rands (if you are in South Africa) or the currency of your country and deposit it into your bank account. Unless of course, you believe that the Bitcoin price will go up and you elect to HODL your Bitcoin…

The above repurchasing strategy applies whether you are a “passive” member of the Hypercommunity and have bought into Hyperfund, or an “active” member who has bought into Hyperfund…

Whereas the “passive” member will buy a Hyperfund Global package and typically do nothing further (other than rebuy), the “active” member will look at building a Hyperfund Global business by: a) buying a package (or multiple packages) and b) introducing others who then follow his or her steps.

Whilst building a Hyperfund business is entirely optional, it’s the option chosen by a growing number of Hypercommunity members simply because it opens the door to “accelerated rewards” – which could be extremely lucrative in time.

By introducing others and building a team, you end up “accelerating” your own rewards with the result that instead of waiting for, say, weeks to be able to “rebuy” a package, you may only have to wait days. And obviously, the shorter the waiting period between rebuys, the more packages you will be able to accrue over the course of the 600 day period. (Teambuilders will find that the larger their team becomes, the shorter will be the waiting period between package repurchases)

The following video is well worth watching:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?reload=9&v=-JFHgfacOFY

Even though the Hypercommunity is still very much in its infancy (it’s only been going for a year or so), there are many members around the world who are already rebuying daily – with numerous members who are doing between 4 and 10 rebuys daily.

Obviously the more packages one has, the more one earns.

As an example: a member rebuying upwards of 4 times daily will end up with more than 2000 packages after the completion of the 600 days.
If one assumes a minimum daily reward of $1.50 per day, the potential earnings could be potentially significant.

I say “potentially” because it depends on two factors:

Rebuying each and every day over the course of the 600 days
Making no withdrawals over the course of the 600 days

Now, it must be stated that there are not many people who can sustain themselves financially for 600 days without making withdrawals from time to time, so the above example – and yes, it must be viewed PURELY as an example – is certainly no guarantee of projected earnings. That said, it illustrates what one COULD earn – POTENTIALLY – by aggressively building a Hyperfund business.

To repeat though – joining the Hypercommunity with the intention of recruiting and building a team is a life choice, and there is absolutely no requirement to do so.

If you are not a network marketing type, and not into referral marketing or affiliate marketing, it’s all good. There is nothing wrong in just buying a package (or number of packages) and rebuying whenever your rewards amount to the 50HU minimum.

If you are a network marketer however and see the benefits inherent in team building, know that – besides receiving your own daily rewards – you’ll receive daily rewards from every member of your team (whether you personally brought them into your business or not).

From those on your first level you will accrue 20% of their daily earnings (rewards); from those on your second level, 15%; from those on your third level, 10%; from those on your 4th, 5th and 6th levels, 5%; from those on your 7th, 8th and 9th levels, 2%: and from those on levels lower than these, 1%.

This is well explained in the evening Zoom call presentations, and anyone looking to join the Hypercommunity would do well to join one of these calls! They are held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening and anyone interested in the schedule of presentations and Training sessions is welcome to whatsapp me on +27 83 444 9888). The Zoom calls do a really good job explaining the entire Hypercommunity ecosystem and business opportunity so those joining with the intention of building a team will gain a good understanding of additional revenue streams like the VIP Rewards and Global rewards, which are both hugely rewarding and based on members achieving certain goals and ranks.

(For those not familiar with the Hypercommunity: it’s essentially the ecosystem of the HyperTech Group, comprising CollinStar Capital, Blockchain Global, Digital X and HCash: four companies committed to putting its members’ digital assets to work to generate daily rewards. The goal of the community is to advance Blockchain technology globally and provide its members the opportunity to achieve lasting financial freedom. The following two websites www.thehyperfund.com and
https://hypertechgrp.com provide a good overview, whilst my own personal website https://hypercommunity.africa might be worth visiting).

In the meantime, here a few salient Questions and Answers taken out of one my previous blog articles in the hope that they add to your understanding of the revenue streams and rewards structure…

How can one see a return of 15% per month?

Hypercommunity members owning a HyperFund Global package – or packages – receive daily rewards of 0.5% per day, regardless of the package(s) bought. A month of 30 days at 0.5% per day equates to 15% per month.

Is the 0.5% per day guaranteed?

Yes. You will see the reward added daily in your back office.

Is it possible to earn more than 15% per month?

It is more than possible, yes. By diligently following a compounding (rebuying) strategy, and adopting a certain placement strategy.

Are the rewards given for life?

Each time you receive a 0.5% daily reward, the cost of the package you purchased reduces by the amount paid to you. Payments are made until you have fully recovered your initial cost of purchase. By adopting a “re-buy” or “re-purchase” strategy, you will also receive rewards on your additional packages and thus, receive daily rewards on multiple packages for the duration of these packages.

So, my outlay for my initial package is not recoverable?

The cost of your initial package is given back to you by way of daily rewards over the duration of the package period.

Can I pay for a Hyperfund Global package using Bitcoin?

No, all packages must be paid in USD Tether (ECR 20 token).

If I don’t have USD Tether, where can I buy it?

You can use Bitcoin to buy USD Tether on a number of platforms, of which Simpleswap is one. www.simpleswap.io

What if I have no Bitcoin, or have not bought Bitcoin before?

You’d need to open an account on an exchange. If you’re in South Africa, the most popular and trusted exchanges are Luno (www.luno.com), AltcoinTrader (www.altcointrader.co.za) or VALR (www.valr.com).
On creating an account, you’ll be given your own unique Bitcoin wallet. Once you’ve uploaded the necessary documents to have your account verified, you can fund your account with your local currency and with it, purchase Bitcoin. It’s a relatively simple and straightforward process.

The least expensive Hyperfund Global package?

The 300hu package, costing US$300.

The most expensive package?

The 1000hu package, costing US$1 000.

Is there a limit as to the number of packages I can buy?

No, there is no limit.

Is there a time limit between registering an account and funding an account?

No, there is no time limit. Fund your account whenever you are ready to do so.

Why is it important to keep “re-buying” packages?

The strategy of rebuying whenever you attain 50hu in rewards ensures that you continue to benefit to the maximum. The aim is to accumulate as many packages as you can. The more packages you own, the more money you’ll make over time.

How easy is to “rebuy” a package?

It’s an exercise in simplicity and involves nothing more than clicking the “Re-buy” tab in your back office. (You will find this by scrolling to the bottom of the home screen of the Hyperfund app).

If I am not introducing others and building a team, do I still need to rebuy packages?

Yes, it makes sense to do so.

If I introduce others who buy packages, do I receive commissions?

There are no “commissions” paid as such. The packages your team members purchase benefit you in terms of accelerated rewards, allowing you to rebuy quicker. By introducing others, you are in essence helping accelerate your rewards.

I hope that this article helps – even if it gives just a basic overview of the Hyperfund rewards program and how it works. (Anyone looking for a higher level explanation of things and methodologies to max out the “compensation plan” should aim to attend a workshop or one of our Wednesday morning (South African time) Zoom calls.

That said, anyone looking to join the Hypercommunity and purchase a Hyperfund Global package MUST do their own due diligence. It goes without saying that there is risk with everything, and especially in the cryptocurrency space, which should always be considered high risk.
