Early yesterday morning, bitcoin smashed through the $5,000 barrier to set a new all-time high.

This is a huge milestone to break. The last time bitcoin approached $5,000, in early September, it immediately corrected back down below $3,000.

But not this time. As I write to you, bitcoin is at $5,748. And it’s showing no signs of slowing down.

Despite the recent Chinese crackdowns, despite the upcoming “hard fork”, despite the rumours of a Russian ban, and despite the investment establishment’s best efforts… bitcoin just keeps on charging.

You can expect to see a new wave of mainstream media attention focused on bitcoin and other cryptos in the coming days. $5,000 is a nice, round figure, and it will cement bitcoin’s legitimacy in the eyes of many waiting on the sidelines.

That’s why it’s never been a better time to check out Sam Volkering’s book, Crypto Revolution. If you want good information on bitcoin, .

My advice is, before the weekend papers hit you with a wall of badly-informed bitcoin bandwagon jumping, check out Sam’s book.

He’s one of the few that’s been in this from the beginning, and he really knows what he’s talking about.

Until next time,
