What are “cryptro-currencies” (even sounds a bit dodgy — like “crypto-zoology” …)?
At any rate, tonight we’re going to explore, in-depth, “Bitcoin” … “Etherum” … “Ripple” … “Litecoin” … “Dash” … “Ethereum Classic” … “Monero” … “Zcash” … etc, etc., etc.
The names (and numbers) of these 21st Century efforts to create “alternative mediums of exchange” are as fluid as Kim Kardashian’s hair color … and as reliable as the virtual reality world of computer “bits and bytes” they’ve been born into!

Robert Harrison was raised on the edge of Liverpool and still considers it his home town. “Liverpool might not be Britain’s largest city – but it is its best city.” He currently lives in Birmingham where he moved to take up employment in 1987.
Between 1987 and 2010, he worked as an economist for Birmingham City Council. This mostly involved researching and analyzing the Birmingham economy in order to develop the best economic strategies for making the city prosper. He also provided economic analysis that aided the city’s bids for large projects funding from the British government and European Union. Other work included local economic forecasting and devising methods for answering “what if” scenarios to aid the city’s decision making.
In 2010, he decided to retire early. Having long been a keen investor, it was time for the investment portfolio to do what it was intended to do.
After achieving his dream of financial independence, Bob decided to “retire” from the rat race in 2010. As a “child of the Space Age”, he was fascinated by space exploration and speculations about extra-terrestrial life from an early age. These have continued to be interests for him. Dr. Carl Sagan’s early speculations about the possible artificiality of the “Elysium Pyramids” on Mars have had a long term impact on his thinking.
In June 2000 Bob began the Cydonia Quest website as a personal exploration of the evidence for very ancient ET ruins in our Solar System. To date the research has mostly concentrated on Mars, and especially Cydonia. The website was inspired by the work of Richard C. Hoagland and his many collaborators in this field. Cydonia Quest is intended to be an additional resource to Hoagland’s own popularEnterprise Mission (TEM) website. It has also explored some of TEM’s more “out there” theories.
