Daniel’s Story

wealthymatters– ” What was the riskiest investment you made that paid off?”

-” I bought a Bitcoin in 2012 for $10.

Everyone in the office laughed at me but I was fascinated by the concept of decentralized currency and how it could re-shape finance as we know it. The friend that sold it to me is now Chairman of Israel’s Bitcoin Association and since I got one of the physical coins from Casascius which are no longer produced, it holds a huge collector value which is sits around 4–6 times the current $2,300 worth of 1 bitcoin.

Pretty good ROI.” – Daniel Buchuk


Selling Historic Currency and Stamps

wealthymattersThe United States of America has released a variety of paper currency throughout the centuries. Since colonial times, different denominations of dollar bills have been circulating in specific regions of North America. As a matter of fact, some states even produced their own dollar bills due to certain political and economic situations. During the Civil War, the confederacy and union each used different forms of currency for tactical purposes. Sometimes, some paper bills were released in limited numbers as a form of experiment or mistakes.

Numismatic dealers are interested in purchasing any forms of old currency that has been released by the U.S. government and other countries. For the most part, paper currency dates back to roughly to the 18th century in the Western world. Sometimes, there have been other forms of paper documents that have had value. For instance, traditional treasury bonds have been used to fund various government operations thanks to the support of citizens.  Read more of this post

How Sad

This is a story I came across today and it saddened me terribly.I don’t hold with mortifying the flesh to amass a fortune.Money is meant to be used (spent).Just make sure that ‘one hundred percent of appreciated value is demanded for each coin spent.’Saving and investing are to increase ones ability to make more to spend more in the present and the future.A little delayed gratification is necessary but to punish oneself to hoard money is stupid.


A Gold Hoarder’s Legacy

Walter Samaszko Jr. was not a guy who wanted company. He covered the windows of his house in Carson City, Nev., with cardboard so the neighbors couldn’t see inside. He made the postman stick the mail through the slot in his garage rather than coming to the front door. He was so good at keeping people away that when he died of heart failure at age 69 in June, nobody noticed until his house began to smell. Someone called the sheriff’s department. A hazmat team removed Samaszko along with part of the floor he was stuck to. Read more of this post
