1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Saudi Oil and how the recent attack may affect Bitcoin on: September 18, 2019, 10:22:53 AM
On Sat, 14th of Sept 2019, reports of a drone attack on Saudi Oil facilities which reduced their daily output by 5.7 million bpd as reported by aljazeera which was known to be up to 50% of the Oil nation’s total output

“Tensions in the Middle East have escalated following drone attacks on two major oil facilities in Saudi Arabia
The pre-dawn attacks on Saturday knocked out more than half of crude output from the world's top exporter - five percent of the global oil supply - and cut output by 5.7 million barrels per day.

Prominent crude oil strategist Phil Flynn at Price Futures Group said on Sunday that the drone strike was a “big deal” that could result in a major spike in crude-oil prices, because of the disruption to global supplies”

These statements from various news reports on the terrible incident that happened in Saudi Arabia has left me with speculations, as this will affect other industries directly and indirectly and will have a ripple effect on the stock markets. I noticed most times when the stock market is going great or at least very volatile, attention ends up being taken away from crypto and investors who would’ve been dealing with crypto would be studying the stock market.

My prediction (which should also be taken as a question up for debate) is that there will be a spike for BTC anywhere around the corner as this usually happens during / after volatile periods in the stock market.

2  Economy / Exchanges / Coinbase and my issue with centralized services (banks) on: September 11, 2019, 12:30:48 PM
As written in this article, banks will always attempt to maintain a hold on the people but when there's a will there's a way;

"Barclays Bank, one of the largest banking institutions in the world, will no longer be providing banking services to Coinbase UK.

CoinDesk first reported the details of the split, adding that the exchange has signed up with a replacement banking partner known as ClearBank.

Coinbase started banking with Barclays in 2018, in a deal which pioneered the relationship between British banks and cryptocurrency exchanges. The partnership connected the exchange to the U.K’s. Faster Payments Scheme (FPS)— a move that allowed users to make instant pound sterling deposits and withdrawals on Coinbase.

The exact reasons behind the split remain unknown, but it seems to have been in the works for some time. Late in July 2019, Coinbase announced that it would be removing FPS access for Coinbase UK customers, although Coinbase Pro customers weren’t affected. It didn’t provide any reasons at the time, but in retrospect, the move seems to have been the beginning of the end for its relationship with Barclays.

However, it is expected that by partnering with ClearBank, Coinbase will be able to get its FPS access reinstated."

The issue with these centralized exchanges and having 100% control over your money and how you choose to spend it is the main reason why bitcoin and the technology is a thing. So no matter how these banks try their hardest to clamp down on crypto, their pressure will force more innovation that will lead to online financial freedom!

They are losing control of the people and their $$$
