Bitcoin “Genesis Block” Horoscope

Bitcoin Coins

Bitcoin is a well known cryptocurrency and digital payment system that was created in 2009 by an unknown computer programmer and cryptographer believed to be living in North America using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority, therefore transactions using Bitcoin are made without any middleman – meaning, no banks! Also, there are no transaction fees and no need to provide your real identity. As of 2016 many merchants and large companies have been accepting bitcoins as a legitimate source of payment, allowing their online products and services to be bought with Bitcoins.

Bitcoin Traits of Money

Bitcoin is open-source; its design is public, therefore nobody owns or controls Bitcoin and everyone can participate.

Many investigators into the origin of Bitcoin now believe Satoshi Nakamoto, the creator of bitcoin, who is arguably one of the greatest disruptors in modern history, to be of American nationality, asserting that the time frames for code submission coincided neatly with someone living in an Eastern Time Zone (EST).

Stefan Thomas, a Swiss coder and active member in Nakamoto’s bitcoin forum, graphed the timestamps for each of Nakamoto’s bitcoin forum posts (more than 500) which showed a steep decline to almost no posts between the hours of 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time. Because this pattern held true even on Saturdays and Sundays, it suggested that Nakamoto was asleep at this time. If Nakamoto is a single individual with conventional sleeping habits, it suggests he resided in a region using the UTC−05:00 time offset. This includes the parts of North America that fall within the EST time zone.

On August 18, 2008, the domain name bitcoin.org was registered.In November that year, a link to a paper authored by Satoshi Nakamoto titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System was posted to a cryptography mailing list.

Nakamoto implemented the bitcoin software as open source code and released it on January 3, 2009 at 18:15:05 UTC. The bitcoin network came into existence after Satoshi Nakamoto mined the first-ever block on the chain, known as the genesis block, deploying the first decentralized digital currency for a reward of 50 bitcoins.

Embedded in the first block also includes text from the UK Times newspaper saying “03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks,” a reference to bitcoin’s birth-date and possibly mocking fractional reserve banking.

Bitcoin EST New York Horoscope
Proposed “Genesis Block” Horoscope of Bitcoin for Wall Street, New York

 

For the past eight years Bitcoin has matured into a billion dollar economy operating without the oversight and management of Central Banks, financial institutions, established exchange markets, e.g. Wall Street, corporations, or government entities.  Below is a list of fifteen facts you may not know about when it comes to the history of bitcoin.

  1. Satoshi Nakamoto may have mined over 1 million coins during his years within the bitcoin community.
  2. With Satoshi’s creation, the total number of bitcoins in circulation will never exceed 21 million.
  3. An estimated 64% of bitcoins have remained untouched in wallets since bitcoin’s inception.
  4. As of May 24, 2017, Nakamoto is believed to own up to roughly one million bitcoins, with a value estimated at approximately $4 billion USD as of September 2017.
  5. 12.5 bitcoins per block are created approximately every ten minutes until mid-2020, and then afterwards 6.25 bitcoins per block for 4 years until next halving. This halving continues until 2110–40, when 21 million bitcoins will have been issued.
  6. 64% is the amount of Bitcoin sitting in accounts that haven’t been touched since the currency began in 2009.
  7. During the holiday season of 2013, a New York resident sold his home for $800,000 in bitcoin.
  8. Satoshi Nakamoto sent the first transaction to developer Hal Finney on January 12, 2009.
  9. For the first 12 months of existence, users could obtain roughly 1,300 hundred BTC for $1 USD.
  10. Denial-of-Service (DOS) attacks can affect the bitcoin network, but there are built-in protections.
  11. Bitcoin is pseudonymous, meaning that funds are not tied to real-world entities but rather other Bitcoin addresses. Although every Bitcoin transaction is public, it can be pseudo-anonymous as long as a user takes the necessary steps of obfuscation.
  12. Eight years, 2 months is the time interval it has taken for one Bitcoin to go from $0 to surpass the value the market value of an ounce of Gold (March 3, 2017).
  13. Bitcoin has since reached parity with the U.S. dollar, one troy ounce of silver, and one troy ounce of gold.
  14.  2140 is the year when the last Bitcoin will be generated.
  15. Transaction of bitcoin can not be reversed. Unlike popular platforms like PayPal, you don’t get second chances while making a transaction.
Bitcoin will exist for another 24 plus year till 2041
Bitcoin will exist for another 24 plus year till 2041

The purpose of Mundane Astrology is to understand, articulate, and forecast the collective transformational forces of humanity as a whole, as a civilization, and its relation with the Cosmos.

The class will be live and in real time, not a recording, so you will be able to ask questions. Students will receive PDF handouts and a video recording (screen capture) of each class meeting.

Charts used in the class are generated by AIR Software’s Star Trax Millennium program.

REQUIREMENTS: Firm knowledge of the houses, signs, and planets is required.

Why Learn Mundane Astrology
  • Learning mundane astrology allows you to broaden your world view of the metaphysical underpinnings in the world.
  • In life, you’re either growing or dying. Unless you challenge yourself to move outside your comfort zone as an astrologer, going past your comfort zone of what you’re good at, you will never acquire the level of mastery that you aspire to.
  • The world needs to know what astrology has to say about where the world is going and why and where it’s moving towards. The world needs to hear astrology’s viewpoint of what is now in progress!
Benefits of Learning Mundane Astrology
  • Having a greater sense of certainty about trends and developments in society and in the world.
  • To give you the confidence to be able to speak with authority and depth to other astrologers on articulating the archetypal forces that are now active in the world at large.
  • Having the fundamentals to make basic forecasts on issues of national and global significance.
  • Being able to know if another’s forecast has merit or credibility, backed up with astrological data, or if it is a statement based on personal bias or partisan thinking.
  • Learning mundane astrology will deepen and broaden your perspective of affairs on the world stage.
  • Being able to make informed speculations on the current trends in international relations, commerce, and economy.
  • Knowing if a particular leader who comes to power will likely be effective in implementing his/her political mission and objectives.
  • Being able to determine when, where, and to what degree crisis will unfold in the world.
What This Class Will Do for You
  • Push you develop and grow to a whole new level of understanding the predictive capability and power of astrology on the world stage.
  • Help you find your own voice about what’s happening in the world, no longer playing into the normalcy bias and mainstream media, no longer parroting mainstream media thinking.
  • Answer these questions you may have had because you are secretly bored: After all these years of astrological study, is this all there is? Can I not know more about the world at large with astrology?

[Webinar March 28] The Economic and Political Future of the United States 2015-2022 based on the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index

Think we are in an Economic Recovery, like the media says?  

NOT A CHANCE.

Join me for my webinar, The Economic and Political Future of the United States 2015-2022 based on the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index on Saturday, March 28 at 12pm PT as I reveal why one of the most significant geopolitical forecasting indexes says we are NOT in for peaceful waters ahead.



– LIVE WEBINAR – 

barbault-2015-2022-lecture-webinar-william-stickevers-2015-03-21_03



We are NOT in an economic recovery. 

Learn more about the current state of global crisis that we are now in from astrological and geopolitical forecaster William Stickevers.

Since 2008, William has been lecturing on the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index, one of the most accurate predictive tools for mundane astrologers for determining global economic and political stability. One could say the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index is like the Dow Jones Industrial Average for the world’s economic and political landscape.

In this two-hour, unprecedented presentation of research on the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index, William will:

  • "From an astrological point of view, we have entered the second stage of the Cardinal Crisis which began in 2010. The first stage was the crisis and breakdown; this second stage is the death and transfiguration; and the third stage will be the new renaissance." -William Stickeversexplain the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index and how it came to be
  • give an overview of the outer planetary cycles and their magnitude
  • illustrate the correlation of the Barbault Index with major historical events since 1300, leaving little room for doubt of the accuracy of the Index
  • explore significant turning points of the Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index from 2000 to 2022 in regards to the United States’ Horoscope
  • make informed speculations (predictions) on the nation’s economic, political, military and technological future
  • discuss what the renaissance-to-come will be in a real way to gain a better perspective on this process on a collective level.

Who Should Attend

Barbault Planetary Cyclic Index 1980-1990You should attend this webinar if you:

  • are an astrologer or student of astrology*
  • are interested in world trends, events, and forecasting
  • are proactive and plan ahead
  • invest for yourself or others
  • have a family
  • have a business
  • want to know what is around the corner so you can make informed choices to help yourself and others
  • do not want to be surprised by difficult times
  • "As a global community, if we gain a broad perspective on these radical shifts in the world, we can make informed choices that can really affect how events play out on the world stage." -William Stickeversneed further proof that we are not in an economic recovery despite what the headlines tell you.

*Knowledge of astrology is not required to benefit from this lecture. (See “For Non-Astrologers” below.)

*For Non-Astrologers

Mundane astrology (also known as political astrology) is the application of astrology to world affairs and world events, taking its name from the Latin word mundus, meaning “the World.”

Upon registering, please indicate that you are not an astrologer or student of astrology. When you identify yourself as a non-astrologer, I will send you a PDF cheat-sheet of what the planets represent so that you can better follow along. I assure you that even if you do not understand what Uranus symbolizes or what “Jupiter conjunct Saturn” brings, you will still be able to get a lot from the presentation.
