DERIVATIVES- Compuceeds and Currency


Derivatives got us into this mess and it will be Derivatives that will get us out.

What is a Derivative? To simplify, it is simply something that is derived from. It is this derived from that I want to address. First, if you are aware of the financial magnitudes of derivatives, I want to rest your mind. If you are not, a mere mention of the following quote from Warren Buffett will open your mind for the direction we wish to avoid:

Derivatives are financial weapons of mass destruction. Warren Buffett

What Warren Buffett is referring to is a financial matter whereas the term derivative is applied to: being derived from an underlying asset. To that end, let it suffice that these Derivatives that Warren Buffett refers to is in the Financial Markets and has done much damage to our Financial Security.


This is the real substance of this article. (I had to get the negative stuff out of the way first!) As mentioned in the initial statement:
Derivatives got us into this mess and it will be Derivatives that will get us out.
You can spend as much time as you desire on how we got in the Financial mess we are in with our currency situations around the world. However, I choose to spend my time finding workable solutions. For many reading this article, you may not have heard of Compuceeds or Compumatrix (the company that produces them). Compuceeds is a Virtual Currency.

When I first thought about putting these thoughts to pen, I was moved by the idea of derivatives in the metaphorical sense. (just as putting thoughts to pen is metaphorical) I see this as a parrallel between derivatives and our currency and derivatives as a result of Compuceeds and Virtual Currency. Of course if you got into technical details, any expert will shoot holes in my analogy but this is what is going on in my head right now (and trust me, you don’t want to be there).

Compuceeds is similar to Bitcoin. Both are Virtual Currencies and they operate by electronic means. As time will tell, these virtual currencies can be interchanged thru exchanges and traded on trading platforms. Time will also be a measure as to their value in our economy indicative of the rest of the first statement that this opened with:
and it will be Derivatives that will get us out.
