What is this new digital/cryptocurrency that is moving in on the traditional Wall Street trading? Here is the definition of blockchain when looked up on the Internet:  A blockchain is a digitized, decentralized, public ledger of all cryptocurrency transactions. Originally developed as the accounting method for the virtual currency Bitcoin, blockchain – which use what's known as distributed ledger technology (DLT) – are appearing in a variety of commercial applications today.

Well I've been hearing about Bitcoin for the past 9 months in my news headlines on my phone and on T.V.  In September 2017 I learned first hand from a colleague who met someone who had been buying and selling Bitcoins since 2014 and has been making significant profits from these transactions. PLEASE DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH on blockchain technology and Bitcoins as I'm just sharing my personal story through Sac Cultural Hub so that you are aware of what is going on if you are clueless or have no idea of what is happening.  Our financial industry is changing rapidly and its time you pay attention and know who are major players in the blockchain industry and why. Browse and read some of the interesting links of articles below at your own leisure to learn more.  YESSSSSZZZZZ Bitcoin in December 2017 was $25k and has fallen by more than 1/2 - down to less than $9k as of April 2018 (but the stock market has done this for decades).  And believe me I'm very green with this new stuff but  what goes down, can only go up.  There is a need to learn and understand the direction of how blockchain technology is moving and how it is going to change every aspect of how we, you buy and sell in the future. You might say this is the start of the NEW WORLD ORDER--Blockchain and Bitcoin: In the new world order, math is king

ANYWHO - despite all of what I've noted above I've jumped on board with The CoinChaser to learn more about investing in Bitcoins. Kolin Lukas (@thecoinchaser) is the founder of The CoinChaser - a Crypto Trading Community where you can learn, trade and profit in a safe friendly environment. What makes me trust Kolin? Well put it this way, he comes highly recommended, he is 25 and has traveled lightening speed in what he knows and does in the crypto space...check out Kolin's Twitter page.  Coming soon is my exclusive interview with Kolin Lukas in our Summer 2018 issue of THE HUB Magazine.

Another great information resource located in Carmichael, California is Bitcoin City.  You can also join in sessions held by Sacramento Bitcoin Meetup on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month at Hacker Lab, 1715 I Street in Midtown Sacramento.  As mentioned I highly recommend you do your own research and be invested in something that yields a ROI - e.g. real estate, stocks, IRA, annuities, blockchain, Bitcoin, etc.  I encourage you to bookmark this page as we will be updating at least once a week with fresh news articles on the blockchain industry and how it is moving.  CLICK HERE to learn more about 5 things to know before investing in Bitcoin.  It's all about being educated and STAY-IN-THE-KNOW!  Since African Americans are always last on the gravy train when it comes to investment and ROI, you can't say that Sac Cultural Hub wasn't here to inform you about what's going on in the block chain industry?
