Investing in Bitcoin Can Protect Your Money from Today's Biggest Threats

While investing in Bitcoin was on the minds of just a brave few a couple of years ago, now it's a safe-haven option retail investors no longer can afford to overlook.

Money Morning expert Michael A. Robinson likes to call Bitcoin "digital gold" because it can play an investing role similar to that of the yellow metal.

But Bitcoin investing has advantages that even gold lacks...

The Brexit Protective Profit Opportunity Most Americans Missed

Investors who live in a "five-day" world have a mighty short collective memory. In the markets, 38 days might as well be 100 years.

Certainly no one in the financial media is looking back to June 24, 2016, anymore. As you'll see, that could be a costly mistake.

Of course, that's the day after the United Kingdom's historic European Union membership referendum ended in a shocking "Leave" result, the day that saw global markets plunge by more than 5% in most cases, wiping out trillions in wealth, and sending the pound sterling to multi-decade lows.

Then again, since U.S. markets have gone on a historic rocket ride in the weeks since, with all indexes repeatedly crushing record highs, it's understandable that investors have "forgotten" the Brexit's initial shock and moved on.

Now that might be okay… if only for the fact that Britain hasn't actually done anything yet. The real Brexit – the day the UK grabs its bags and steps out of the EU's door – is yet to come, and there are ominous signs that things could get downright ugly as that day approaches. It has the potential to make the Brexit vote shock look tame by comparison.

Here's how you can use Bitcoin to protect yourself and even make money when the volatility roars back.

Bitcoin ETFs Can Work – but This Ethereum ETF Won't

Seeing two Bitcoin ETFs seeking regulatory approval, an upstart group has now filed for something even more radical – an Ethereum ETF.

The evidence suggests the group, the EtherIndex Ether Trust, threw together its S-1 filing with the SEC willy-nilly in an effort to be first in line to file for an Ethereum ETF.

But the problems with this ETF proposal run much deeper than that.

Here's why no Ethereum ETF will see the light of day for a very long time...

Why the SolidX Bitcoin ETF Is a Step Behind the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF

One Bitcoin ETF is good, but two are better. And now that the SolidX Bitcoin ETF has filed an S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission, we could have two Bitcoin ETFs trading on major U.S. exchanges by next year.

The only question now is which one will gain the bragging rights of making it first to the finish line.

And while the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust is in the lead, this race is closer than you think...

What the Bitcoin Price Will Do After the Bitcoin Halving

The Bitcoin price could be in for a shock this weekend as the long-awaited Bitcoin halving hits.

The Bitcoin halving means the reward that Bitcoin miners receive for solving a "block" in the blockchain falls from 25 bitcoins to just 12.5 bitcoins.

Short-term concerns about a big drop in the price of Bitcoin are overblown.

But how the halving will affect the Bitcoin price in the long term is another story...

Why the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF Is Back on Track for Approval

The Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF is alive and well.

After 18 months of no news, two significant filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission have revived hope we'll see a Winklevoss Bitcoin exchange-traded fund before fall.

One of the filings is a sixth revision of the original S-1 filed exactly three years ago. But the other is a new filing.

Here's why the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust may be just months away from SEC approval...

Investing in Bitcoin Has Delivered an Annual Return of 82%

These annual Bitcoin price gains will outstrip any other investment...

Why the Bitcoin Price Rise on Brexit News Matters

The Bitcoin price got a healthy 8.8% pop from the shocking vote in Britain to leave the European Union, otherwise known as "Brexit."

While it should have been no surprise that the price of Bitcoin would follow gold during a black swan event like this, the digital currency until now hasn't been widely viewed as a safe haven.

Here's what's changed - and why investors now need to seriously consider adding Bitcoin to their portfolios...
