Bitcoin Is a Gamble – but It’s Also Paving the Way for Future Currency

Bitcoin has skyrocketed in value since it was introduced in 2009. If you bought in early enough, you made hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars.

Still unsure about what bitcoin is and what all the fuss is about? On today’s show, Glenn condensed the rise of bitcoin and other digital currencies into a few minutes and analyzed what cryptocurrency means for money in the future.

“All digital currencies are now at all-time highs,” Glenn said. “The technology behind digital currencies is changing the way banking is done all over the world.”

GLENN: We live in an age of technological disruption. It is everywhere. Transportation, space flight, the way we make things, retail.

I mean, how many of us went shopping online instead of going in and, you know, knifing it out in the aisles of Walmart? Everything is about to change.

Some of the changes are happening where you least expect it. Even the way we spend money, save money, or invest. Money and currency is going through its own technological revolution. And digital currency is the wave of the future.

Bitcoin surged past 9,000 yesterday morning. As of right now, it is at 9,750. 9661. Moving towards 1,000 -- $10,000 per coin. Now, this is moving faster than analysts and algorithms can keep track of. It took seven days for this digital currency to go from 8,000 to 9,000. And the weekend, to go from 9,000 to 9600.

Coinbase, the largest bitcoin exchange in the US, added 100,000 accounts just last week. All of these stats are unprecedented. And they're all from the last seven days.

In January, bitcoin was at about $1,000 per coin. It went on to hit eight different 1,000-point milestones this year alone. We're looking now at a 900 percent increase.

And these stats are just for bitcoin. All digital currencies are now at all-time highs. Ethereum, Litecoin, they're all climbing. I'm not telling you how to invest your money. In fact, there is a good shot this is a tulip scare, where the Dutch were trading tulips, because tulips will always be worth more than a house.

Yeah. It could go to zero overnight, literally. But the technology behind digital currencies is changing the way banking is done all over the world. Block chain. This is technology that is opening up possibilities that were just unavailable, literally just a few months ago. People with absolutely no access to a bank can now invest, trade, and spend their money.

And they can do it from the comfort of their own personal hand-held device. You don't like banks? You don't like bankers? Block chain and digital currency enables you to be your own bank. Whether you live in Manhattan or a village in Liberia, this truly changes the world.

This is all brand-new technology. And like everything new and startup, it comes with risk. Don't -- don't invest anything in this that you're not willing to lose. Treat it like you're going to Vegas. Because this could take a serious nose dive to zero at any given moment.

But change is occurring. Disruption is happening whether we like it or not. Transportation, going to space is now privatized, with SpaceX. The way we make things, the way we sell things, and now currency, the way we save and the way we spend.

The time to prepare for constant change is right now.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.
