Rothschild-Linked Oil Tycoon Makes Waves in Bitcoin Mining Pool

CCN: A big shakeup at Argo Blockchain, the beleaguered bitcoin mining company that owns Argo Mining, has revealed that a Rothschild-linked London oil tycoon with a shadowy past just did the cannonball dive into the deep end of the crypto mining pool.

As if you needed any more evidence that bitcoin has found the bottom of its year-plus-long bear slump, with the foundations already laid for a massive bitcoin bull run in 2019!

What’s Next for Bitcoin Miners in 2019 Amid Lower Price?

Bitcoin Mining Firm Fires Top Brass, Onboards Oil Barron

Frank Timiș, a 56-year-old Romanian-Australian businessman worth over $2 billion with deep interests in oil and gold mining, was revealed as a part owner of Argo Mining after a company shakeup that led to the ouster of two top Argo executives.

The company also announced a massive overhaul of its entire business plan earlier this year. Rising costs and the long crypto winter rendered Argo Blockchain’s previous cash flow model unprofitable.

With Frank Timiș – who now owns a controlling 14% stake in the bitcoin mining firm, at the helm – Argo has moved on from subletting hash rate and invested in its own mining rigs.

Institutional Adoption? Frank Timis Has Ties to Rothschild Bank

The financial establishment has been looking at cryptocurrency and the disruptive power it holds with eyes wide open for some time now. 2018 was a year of unprecedented institutional interest in bitcoin and other digital assets.

2019 is poised to be an even bigger year for institutional investment, as the powers that be scramble to disrupt themselves and their competitors before letting themselves be disrupted first. Major Silicon Valley and Wall Street forces are on the move.

Frank Timiș is an old oil and gold guy with economic interests that tie him firmly into the establishment. In the mid-90s, Timiș’ gold mining company, Gabriel Resources, even obtained a $3 million loan from the Rothschild Bank in the U.S. after striking gold in Australia.

Bitcoin is quite arguably an economic substitute for gold, and bitcoin’s unique relationship with electricity bolsters the renewable energy industry’s threat to the fossil fuel economy.

Can Bitcoin Be Corrupted?

These titans of the 20th-century political and financial status quo will attempt to drink the entire sea because they still don’t fundamentally understand that bitcoin is a sea change in the world order. It will eventually swallow them instead.

Certainly, the threat of institutional adoption is real for those blind masses who would remain shackled by the surveillance and corruption of the financial establishment.

But bitcoin’s clever architecture will remain as incorruptible and universally accessible as ever despite the waves of institutional adoption.

It doesn’t matter how many other people use it or how they use it. Your bitcoin will always be in your control – as long as you hold the private keys.

I am a believer of the HODL philosophy because we are still in the nascent stage of blockchain technology. Although we are in a bear market now, my outlook on the adoption and growth of blockchain solutions remains unchanged. Blockchain transactions has been growing exponentially and demand for cryptocurrency like Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Ripple [XRP], Litecoin [LTC] and other Altcoins will only continue to grow exponentially in the next five to ten years.
