1  Bitcoin / Project Development / Will IBM be the first major company to embrace blockchain technology? on: March 31, 2018, 08:27:05 PM
https://www.coindesk.com/ibm-evolution-big-blue-finally-getting-serious-cryptocurrency/

This is exciting news for our community, very bullish. The article mentions they are speaking with many major banks to figure out how they can get involved. Our future here in the cryptoverse is looking positive what do you think in the midst of a bull cycle, is there hope still out there?
2  Other / Politics & Society / Better Taxes US gov. on BTC! on: March 30, 2018, 10:11:21 PM
https://www.coindesk.com/taxing-every-bitcoin-purchase-will-backfire-irs/

I really like this idea they refer to in the article. By implementing a similar de minimus exemption for cryptocurrency gains under $200, the IRS could massively simplify the tax code in this area and make it more likely that bitcoin users will report their gains properly.

This would make ppl. lives easier around tax time, instead of nickeling and diming them US gov. gosh, anyone agree?

3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Politics or Marketing for ICO's? on: March 30, 2018, 04:09:22 AM
https://www.coindesk.com/email-service-mailchimp-block-ico-crypto-marketing/

So if you haven't heard already mailchimp starting next month will not allow any marketing material dealing with ICO's. How in the world can they claim they believe that blockchain technologies will be helpful to society but then ban the use of their services for marketing? Am I the only person who thinks this is so hypocritical?
4  Economy / Economics / Will BTC and large coins recover? on: March 30, 2018, 03:44:58 AM
https://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-breaks-7000-to-50-day-low-amid-market-sell-off/

We know that cryptocurrencies are without a doubt changing hands right now, but is it even wise to invest into the crypto economy anymore with the top 20 tokens all showing a 10 to 20 percent sell-off within the last 24 hours? Is this the end, are the days of bull runs over in Crypto? Ever since February we've been struggling to break $11kish and now it's back down, what are we to make of this?

https://www.coindesk.com/justice-department-sues-founders-mayweather-backed-ico/

by getting rid of companies that are scams and by solving real-world problems what do you think?
6  Other / Politics & Society / Wyoming will have most favorable laws in USA for ICO's, thankfully they're wise. on: March 24, 2018, 09:19:22 PM
https://www.ccn.com/wyoming-house-unanimously-passes-bill-exempting-utility-tokens-securities-laws/

Check out these laws in the article that got passed unanimously in the house. Now on to the Senate, this is definitely the right precedent for the USA. What do you think will the gov. mess this up eventually?
7  Economy / Marketplace / Ironic that Twitter can claim BTC is currency of the future, and ban crypto ads. on: March 22, 2018, 01:46:25 PM
https://www.coindesk.com/twitter-ceo-jack-dorsey-bitcoin-will-be-the-worlds-single-currency/

I'm glad to hear people with strong companies and lots of money to invest are bullish on the future of BTC. However, this idiot ceo banned ICO/crypto adds on Twitter behind the likes of Fcbk and Google ad words in June. What the heck, is this not ironic or am I the only one that finds this crap hypocritical?
8  Other / Politics & Society / NSA has it's eyes on you Bitcoin American users on: March 21, 2018, 04:39:08 AM
https://www.coindesk.com/nsa-reportedly-eyes-to-scrap-bitcoins-anonymity/

What are your thoughts on this report regarding the NSA scrupulously going after any and all Americans buying or selling Bitcoin? Is this breaching any privacy to you? Do they actively do this for everybody's bank account as well these days?
9  Bitcoin / Project Development / Fcbk, Google, and now Twitter? on: March 19, 2018, 11:05:56 PM
https://www.coindesk.com/twitter-will-ban-cryptocurrency-ads-in-two-weeks-says-report/

with fcbk, google ad words and now twitter putting crypto marketing ads to a stop this year how are ICO's going to successfully find a way to market their product?

What's your opinion in how they get the word out via traditional social media platforms? Any ideas?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / What are ICO's going to do for the next 12 months? on: March 19, 2018, 10:19:40 PM
https://www.coindesk.com/icos-iced-12-month-freeze-us-token-trading-just-beginning/

Beyond USA ICO's and exchanges that trade them, what does this hold for the future of world-wide ICO's? Is this going to be an issue for the crypto market long-term or is it just the USA coming down on the ICO space until they regulate everything in the next 12 months?
11  Other / Politics & Society / First time Crypto in US Congress economic report on: March 16, 2018, 11:42:14 PM
https://www.coindesk.com/crypto-featured-first-time-us-congress-economic-report/

Does this article indicate the climate that the gov. is def. going to regulate crypto sooner than later, and if so will this finally give us the legitimacy we need to see crypto go mainstream?

I believe that the gov. whether they want to or not they are giving us more attention to this sector.
12  Other / Politics & Society / US and Venezuela politics in between PetroOil Crypto coin... on: March 14, 2018, 10:08:45 PM
https://www.coindesk.com/us-lawmaker-presses-treasury-department-on-venezuelas-petro-sale/

I understand that there are US restraints with Venezuela so that we are not fueling their corrupted gov. and dictatorship but at what lengths should the effect Cryptocurrency. I agree w the US that they should not aid and help this economy impoverish the Ven. citizens further but how and where do you draw a line with crypto? I know the US likes to control everything they can but should they be allowed to control other nations crypto decisions/coins?

Thoughts?
13  Other / Politics & Society / FL state employee arrested for mining crypto at work? thoughts = illegal? ... on: March 14, 2018, 09:28:18 PM
https://www.coindesk.com/florida-state-employee-arrested-for-allegedly-mining-crypto-at-work/

I find this very confusing. It's not like he was shooting up drugs at work or doing something illegal that would require a reaction of arrest in my opinion. However, using the state cpu and energy for other reasons than work-related can make a case for work disciplinary actions but arrest like if mining crypto was some sort of crime?

Do you agree with the potential charge/charges?

https://www.coindesk.com/cftc-official-backs-winklevoss-brothers-crypto-self-regulation-bid/

The latest news shows that this might be the solution for regulation ICO's. I believe this would be way better than the SEC regulating something they don't even understand but simply want the control. What do you think best for the crypto community?
16  Economy / Economics / Bull trap right now? on: March 13, 2018, 01:45:21 AM
https://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-eyes-10k-but-charts-hint-at-bull-trap-potential/

What do you think, are we getting out of the bull market we've been in lately? This is an interesting read on current technical analysis.

This article goes into depth making a case for XRP but what do you think? Are you a fan or not?

https://www.coindesk.com/tennesssee-retirement-funds-bill-advances-to-full-senate/

Look here they are trying to control how people spend their money even in retirement once they've spent their whole life paying taxes they are now told what they can and can't invest in TN. Unreal..
