Well the crash has its already happened,

In the last month it has is dropped almost 50%.

As criminals try to get out of their bitcoin positions it could drop even more.

As governments around the world realize that they should stop any crypto currency trading until they can regulate it most cryptos will at best stay even.

Now that all the craziness is over people will return to the traditionally safe long term investments such as precious metals and real estate especially in Bali.

Everybody's been bragging about making so much money on bitcoin.

In the last month I made over 40% on silver and Canadian dollar positions.

Of course this is not for the uneducated or inexperienced but real estate is very simple and very safe especially when you buy after the worst downturn in modern history in Bali which provides for the best buying opportunity this century.

In the meantime whatever you do don't get sucked into buying crypto currency now until they are regulated.

“The issue of banning exchanges that the justice minister talked about yesterday is a proposal by the Justice Ministry and it needs more coordination among ministries.”

The move is part of a deliberate policy to get trading under control that has hit the market in the last few months.

In September the government banned crowdfunding practice known as initial coin offerings (ICO).

The practice has been used by startup and to fund projects with firms creating their own currency and selling it to raise money for investment.
