VW Vanagon Westfalia 1985 (update - not living in it yet)...hackers, cryptos and your future finacially with inflation...

in #bitcoin6 years ago (edited)


In upgrading the drum brakes to disc brakes the 14" wheels were rubbing against the brakes so we moved to 15" wheels and the set we had have been sent for extra engineering.

Here is the latest picture of the engine and it sounded great moving from 1.9 litre (1900cc) to a Subaru 2.5 litre (2500cc):

So soon I will be hitting the streets living in my camper van full time. Here are a few sample pictures of my travels that you should be seeing, two here focusing in on trees:


I also fell in love with the electric bike I bought so I upgraded to a fat tire electric bike and will be bringing that with me on my travels:

These three videos are very interesting:

This first video with Greg Mannarino is important as he talks inflation and I see the move away from the USD as most likely a slow bleed event:

The following interview with John McAfee is really important even though John has proven to be in my eyes a bit crazy. He really knows hacking technology:

The following video is on new blockchain technology. Remember the blockchain is what I call upgrading double entry accounting to triple entry. A way to describe blockchain is, a new accounting method allowing for the ease of 100% auditing. I like the term triple entry accounting an improvement on double entry with a computer-generated time stamp notarizing or witnessing all transactions with more computing processing power ever put together for a single purpose in history (i.e.; debt, credit and time stamp).:

Resteemed and upvoted. I have been following Greg Mannarino for years now on facebook and youtube and the guy does pack some punch in his market analysis.

I also follow him and I must say in his analysis there is a rational grain :)

He surely is one against the establishment and FED.

This is what we do with the establishment


Nice looking

ha ha ha

The engine sure sounded great because it looks really powerful.

I like the electric bike too. It is my dream bike especially with the fat tires you put on it.
Basically this is a good post you have made @greenman, with important information that i think alot of people should know and so i resteemed and upvoted for maximum view.

Thank you @greenman sir.

hey Paul resteemed and upvoted:) nice Ebike, how much speed can he make? and how much ebike cost? so your van is not more powerful are you planing to go to mountains?

The speed depends not only on the power, but also on the good transmission ;)

Resteemed and upvoted! hanks for great content :)
What is the purpose of fat tire? Does it make riding more smooth?

Very much more smooth enough to cruise onto beaches and gravel areas...I also added a drop seat and front shocks.

I also liked this rubber and the bike in general, so for better viewing I Resteemed and upvoted. Let everyone enjoy :)

So you are making beast bike :) I always was wondering whether it is better to buy an electric bike or a gadget that attaches to the wheel. 2nd one seems to be a cheaper option.

Marvelous & attraction post you always sharing sir... Highly appreciated it...


I enjoy very much on reading your post . and sure I did not forget to upvoted and resteem these kind of posts. really love the way you present the stories

I got some nice feeling that you had a electric bike as i got my own one as well. and wonder why are you going to upgrade with fat tyre, does it help to reduce the electric power ,

nice post @greenman. cheers

i wish that this project get completed soon you are putting a lot of effort in this :) my best wishes @greenman upvoted and Resteemed

inflation is a thing which affect everyone but going about it in way with intelligence can have a good impact on the society and everyone can be benefited i love electric bikes and would like to know much it would cost nearly?? resteemed & upped :)

Information and price on bike in comments to others. Thanks.


Thanks for the reply i was not expecting it but many thanks got the information thank you :)

Is this bike has been modified sir......

upvote and resteem,excellent publication.
congratulations on your purchase "electric bike".
I'm looking forward to it being generalized "blockchain technology".

it is really weird this trees,
it is a mountain bike?congratulations.

Resteemed and upvoted nice article good all pictures and video
Dear @greenman

Nice post @greenman. After 10 to 12 days you submit a post again.....
I follow and commented your post every day but

Resteem and upvot.........

Great to see you post again. Some days ago I found your profile and looked over some of your posts.
Like a lot of what I saw and was hoping you would post more frequently.

You have a lot of skills and are doing a lot of very interesting and sharing valuable things.

Mechanics is a very useful skill as well as many of the others you have showcased here. Cool to see you living it up and sharing it here on Steemit.

Best Regards~*~

resteemed right away great to see the update and that tree was quite different in style though videos were awesome i like the blockchain technology one more

@greenman Resteemed and upvoted! The engine sure sounded great because it looks really powerful!!!

The electric bike it's cool, @greenman)upvoted and resteemed

that big engine should get you up any hill.. Nothing worse than just not having enough power when you need it.. good to see you got all your wires labelled! :-)

You look almost all ready to go, with electric bike in hand! Wishing you many happy days and adventures with your V'dub!

Nice content I like cars more than bike 😍😍,

Upvoted and resteemed

Resteemed and upvoted.Actually, it"s a important information @greenman . Just beautiful . I followed you.

What interesting trees, like living giants.

I would even say that this is a living "Titans"

sir i agree with , interesting trees, like living giants and nice steemit working

This is cool. Did you read about JP Morgan's Dimon trying to call bitcoin a fraud? Uvoted and resteemed.

Yes, I am writing my next blog and going to use something like this between my photos and VW update:
Is bitcoin a currency and is Jamie Dimon correct that it is a fraud - 'no' to both...
Bitcoin is not a currency even though some think it is and it behaves like one and will most likely become one. Bitcoin is a 'utility' and since it can be used like money some are doing such like me and my friends. The utility is: the most secure data base ever invented. As simple as that. My analogy is: picture it like a big spread sheet (an excel spread sheet) with 21 million cells. Each cell has a password assigned to it and that is called the keys to that cell. These keys can be transferred to other cell keys and are then owned or controlled by the new keys. Cool eh! There is even an open source protocol that releases these cell ownership controls over time ensuring decentralization and utilizing consensus systematic for any updates.

So now, what's the big deal in having a spread sheet that you can transfer cell ownership rights to each other? This spreadsheet is validated by lots of processing power every 10 minutes. Validated; means witnessed or notarized by the community and to date more processing power is validating the bitcoin blockchain than has ever been used for a single purpose in the history of mankind.

Okay, once again what's the big deal: well you can attach data to the cell - that is the epiphany! You can store contract law in the cell and use the validated spreadsheet to confirm ownership rights assigned to the cell or to the contract inside the cell. No more need for a middle man like a clearing house, notary, bank, lawyer etc. Cuts a lot of fat from the current utilities we are using for such items now like: car or land registration, identification, licenses, passports etc.

Now then how does it become money: it becomes money when a value is attached to the controlling or ownership of the cell. Why would someone want to own such a utility or a portion of it? There is value in someone notarizing contracts in a manner so secure it has had zero down time and zero hacks or errors from the early stages - currently now running over 9 years worth of 10 minute blocks of transactions. I call it triple entry accounting: a transaction 1) buyer 2) seller 3) witness by ledger and community. Or debit, credit and witness. You can sell services on this backbone and therefore owning control allows for a return on investment.

Jamie Dimon the most powerful private banker calling bitcoin a fraud exposes him to either being ignorant of the facts like most people or deceptive like most of the largest shareholders of the banks. Jamie Dimon's bank received the biggest bailout in history so I hope you don't take a bankrupt has-been as knowing much about technology.

Its a cool idea about blogging while travelling. I like the triple entry accounting in the cryptoworld. Also thanks about detailed analysis on Jamie Dimon.



how much you pay for it? good for a traveler.I have one but its not electric @greenman
by the way miss you man,i you don't leave then check your old articles.love you

I bought many extras like a drop post seat, extra battery, locks, racks, fenders and signal lights etc. $6,500.00 USD

$6,500 ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
i can buy a car.

...and you should. This is toy to self. I worked hard for a life time and now in retirement I want to play like a teenager again so fat tire bike it is! Being on the right side of the inflation trade beating 99.9% of all professional money managers in the market helped pay for my new toy. More toys to come...I am diversifying my investments and bought 35 pounds of silver yesterday.

That's great idea Mr bitcoin President. I think every people has own Choice.I like your opinion...

you should buy a Lamborghini after all you are bitcoin president @greenman

I was in the show room of Aston Martin and Bentley last week and snapped this picture that was sent to my son:
Much rather this over the Lamborghini.

Do you really like this car @greenman

Really nice and powerful car. It is not less than Lamborghini.....

wow.you are a good man which name is @greenman. do you have grandchildren?

Not yet. Just one son and he is not married.

ohhhh sad.................... tell him to marry. thats why you can get grandchildren and a good company .

i am impress by your activities .you know what my grandpa looks like you .he worked in chemistry lab in a university . after retirement he became sick .he couldn't enjoy his life . you are right @greenman .enjoy your life ,its you time to travel .hope my grandpa could enjoy ....................................

Such a big tree, it reminded me of the movie "Jack- The Giant Slayer". Flat tire electric bike sounds interesting

The correct combination between the 2.5L engine and the 15 ° wheels, otherwise the tree is very fascinating with this immense height, and for the bike, I will wait for a video to see it rolled because I have a low for mountain bikes .
Upvoted and resteemed

Interesting post and video like always Greg Mannarino is a great investor i follow him on steemit and John McAfee is a great bitcoin and blockchain technology promotes and supports

the electric bike looks cool great indeed and thanks a lot for sharing these valuable video very excellent they were :)

Quite right @greenman, technology blockchain can be used almost anywhere, where you need to download and store data!!! thanks.....////

Cheers, ur gonna be in the outdoors life 24/7 soon! :D

Well, now bitcoin will go up again, and you can go on trips to Lamborghini :)

Excellent engine and power is amazing.

Wow! Nice video,,,,,,,,, Congrats on the upgrade........

As usual interesting post

What an old beast. I can't wait to see what it look like with the Subaru engine. All I know that it is probably going to be a great upgrade. I wish you the best of luck with it @greenman.

Too bad recently most things have been dominated by negativity. We had the recent hits to cryptocurrency because of China. I've watched a lot of marketreport's videos and he really does show how the fiat system is failing. The USD is getting slaughtered and all that does is drive prices up for everything else.

Well hopefully everything turns out well haha

Great post

Dod you see the new rossi? Can we take the bike on the VW when you are in europe, lol https://steemit.com/photography/@rival/just-a-picture-2009-the-future-valentino-rossi

Am little bit curious is it car engines or rocket engines?

Quite right @greenman, technology blockchain can be used almost anywhere, where you need to download and store data!

I never understood what's good in an electric bicycle. For me if it's a bicycle, then a bicycle. If the moped is a moped. What is one thing.

You still need to peddle it. It is battery assist and if you want good exercise peddle away you will just double or triple your site seeing.

True, I believe that in an electric bicycle there is another plus to the environment, that is, less air pollution!

Welcome back mr President. Let the journey begin. I love the first tree in the post and the new engine. love the term triple auditing. Not a lot of banks can provide the transparency of the blockchain triple auditing.

Electric bike, I wonder how much battery power is enough?

I ordered an extra battery with it as I was worried that one was not enough but so far one has easily lasted for hours at a time. I have only had it out a half dozen times so will know more about longevity as I test it.

Charging the battery is most likely from a 220 volt network or can 12 volts?

It charges on a regular wall outlet and pumps out 36V to its electric engine.

Oh yeah, then there's no problem, otherwise I thought he needed special equipment. Congratulations on your excellent purchase :)

@greenman. Am just curious. Do you make car engines?

No. The company doing the conversion is: www.kuksshop.com

I wonder what fuel consumption this engine has for 100 km?

Has not been driven 100 km to know as of yet.

Are engined gauged with fuel consumption status per kilometer?

Typically, fuel consumption is measured in liters per 100 km, at 1 km of such have not yet heard :)


Thank you for posting @greenman.

We never know what to expect when it comes to your posts and today you packed it in.

Lovely photographs and videos...all very interesting. Looking forward to watching the videos and hearing the roar of the motor........a serious bike....have not heard of an electric bike.

Wishing you and yours all the best. Cheers.

Good engine .. Greetings from Captain Jack Sparrow

great man

What interesting trees, like living giants

Excellent dear friend @greenman
