BREAKING: BTC is now being traded on the Nasdaq! I bought one BTC through my TDAmeritrade account! According to the chart it started trading April 10, 2019!! Other digital assets are soon to follow!!


UPDATE: According to TDAmeritrade support - it's not a real trade in my account - it appears they are testing only using their Paper Trading platform. Support said "I'm not able to speak on it" -They did not know what CXERX is. Strange...  But something is going on for sure!

3  Economy / Economics / Groundbreaking Chase Bank Lawsuit Verdict Could See NY Federal Judge Rule ‘Crypt on: April 26, 2019, 01:09:19 PM
People are now mostly focusing and talking about Bitfinex , Tether case and yesterday price crash
But there are more interesting news from New York also
That article can be also good example of battle between crypto and banks,Wall Street

https://www.ccn.com/federal-judge-rule-crypto-is-cash-chase-bank-lawsuit


By CCN.com: A Manhattan federal judge will have to decide whether crypto is cash in what would be a landmark decision for the budding industry. The ruling would have major implications for what laws and regulations cryptocurrencies are subject to.



In April 2018, Chase customers sued the bank. The plaintiffs accused Chase of charging surprise fees after it abruptly stopped letting customers buy crypto with credit cards and began treating them as cash advances.

To make matters worse, Chase Bank refused to refund the extra fees it had charged after customers complained.

The lead plaintiff in the lawsuit, Brady Tucker, says Chase charged him $143.30 in fees and $20.61 in surprise interest charges for five crypto transactions he did between January and February 2018. After he called to dispute the charges, Chase refused to refund the money.

Moreover, Brady Tucker says he’s not only victim. In his lawsuit, Tucker says hundreds or even thousands of Chase customers were assessed these same fees — again, without prior notice.


Similar lawsuits over “cash-advance fees” for crypto purchases were filed against Bank of America in California and State Farm Bank in Illinois. The judges in those cases did not rule on the question of whether cryptocurrencies are cash, and did not dismiss the lawsuits.

Bitcoin fans point to these lawsuits over shady bank fees as examples of how hypocritical and dishonest legacy banks are, even as they slam the crypto industry as sleazy and illegitimate



4  Economy / Speculation / Bitcoin Golden Cross on: April 23, 2019, 12:02:12 PM
 
Historic Moment
Golden Cross just happen
Golden cross is happening when 50MA  cross 200MA on 1 day chart
It is happening right now
It is easy to drawn lines even on Bittrex studies to see that

Last Golden Cross was October 28th-30th, 2015. Subsequent gains of 6787%
So it is something to celebrate and be careful because many shorts can appear on 5.8 k to 6.k
If bitcoin will finally pass 6k and defend 5.8 then it can be very interesting on btc


 
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Is the SEC creating secret law for crypto? on: April 13, 2019, 04:44:45 PM
Worth to read.Some true about SEC and  how SEC is creating legislation for cryptocurrency industry

SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce worries that the SEC’s opacity—and lack of accountability—might be creating a “fatal competitive disadvantage” for startups.

The SEC has secrets. And those secrets might be shaping the way cryptocurrency and blockchain companies do business.


https://decryptmedia.com/6503/sec-secret-law-crypto-hester-peirce

My answer is that USA is not whole world and will be not
It is all corporation frozen America
6  Economy / Economics / Next Reason For BTC Price To Goes Up on: April 09, 2019, 06:20:06 PM
 Below article from my favorite press showing what can be reason of crypto currencies market rise.I can add that exactly 28 March Mario Draghi confirmed that yet another EBC QE
During QE cycle investors are making huge money by investing in emerging assets
Bitcoin specially now is most profitable asset in the world

TRUMP CALLS FOR EXPANSIONARY POLICY
The crypto rally matched shoulders with the stock market performance in the mainstream. The S&P 500 Index last week reclaimed its January 2018 highs. Though the S&P 500 and the cryptocurrency market do not correlate directly, both the markets lately reacted to what was happening in the US economic space.



A potential QE program typically leads to a stock market pump. Market participants like the thought of more dollars coming into the economy, which leads them to offload them into stocks with bullish sentiments. That also means that investors could look beyond conventional financial instruments, like bitcoin, to distribute their portfolio risks. As a result, more money flows into the emerging cryptocurrency space.

7  Economy / Economics / Will the Bitcoin Bounce Last? ETFs in Focus.Nasdaq Article on: April 07, 2019, 02:26:14 PM
There is many threads were people are asking what was the reason behind recent price bounce
I have found really good article .ETF  if you will read than you will be surprised how many bitcoin related ETF already exist

https://www.nasdaq.com/article/will-the-bitcoin-bounce-last-etfs-in-focus-cm1123809

Gabor Gurbacs, digital asset strategist at VanEck, sees the price jump as the result of short squeeze. The strategist noted that "CME bitcoin futures expired last Friday. A large chunk of positions was rolled (buying) into the new front month BTC futures contract. Over the weekend, heavy spot bitcoin and over-the-counter buying followed the bitcoin futures contract expiration pushing BTC price up slowly and gradually. As the price moved up in increments, over $500 million shorts have been liquidated on leveraged crypto derivatives trading platforms around the world," as quoted on barrons.com


ETF Impact

Though bitcoin ETFs are not available to investors, they have blockchain ETFs at their disposal. Per a source, "the  blockchain in Bitcoin  literally acts a ledger; it keeps track of the balances for all users and updates them as money changes hands."

So, if investors cannot lay their hands on a bitcoin ETF now, they can definitely familiarize themselves with the concept through blockchain ETFs like  Reality Shares Nasdaq NexGen Economy ETF  BLCN ,  Amplify Transformational Data Sharing ETF  BLOK and  First Trust Indxx Innovative Transaction & Process ETF  LEGR .

Investors should note that mining of cryptocurrencies needs the usage of semiconductors. So, if there is a future rally, investors may tap the opportunity with semiconductor ETFs like Semiconductor Vaneck Vectors ETF ( SMH ) , Invesco Dynamic Semiconductors Portfolio ( PSI ) and SPDR S&P Semiconductor ( XSD ) .
8  Economy / Economics / France, Spain and Belgium Ready For Hard Brexit on: April 05, 2019, 07:07:58 PM
One time again politicians are showing what  they are  able to do
Only his own interest count,only seats in his parliament count his position counts
Interest of nation interest of people is nothing for them
There is no agreement in GB leading parties about Brexit there is 5 to midnight and still there are only political games and very long senseless talks
There will be one big social and economic tornado in a case of no deal Brexit
GB will enter in to ice age for minimum three months or longer
And of course  no deal Brexit will have huge impact on financial world
Pound will lost 15 % at once will be crash on FTSE and other markets in Europe
I am posting that here because i think it can have big impact on bitcoin price

A new Trojan horse malware is trying to steal fiat and crypto assets, the Next Web writes. The malware called “Gustuff” is designed specifically for Android phones, targeting customers of big international banks and cryptocurrency exchanges.

https://www.theblockcrypto.com/tiny/cryptocurrency-and-banking-apps-targeted-by-new-android-malware/

Group-IB discovered Gustuff spreads via SMS messages. It provides links to “malicious Android package kit files,” using contact lists to spread from user to user. Group-IB advises users only download apps from Google Play.

According to the job posting on SmartRecruiters, a San Francisco based recruiting firm, VISA Fintech is looking for a technical product manager to manage the product strategy and roadmap for cryptocurrency related opportunities


The job posting also clearly states that ViSA is planning to establish a “Visa Crypto Team,” with the to-be-hired product manager directing strategy within their evolving “cryptocurrency ecosystem”

The state of Qatar secretly offered $400m to Fifa just 21 days before world football’s governing body controversially decided that the 2022 World Cup would be held in the tiny desert country, leaked documents have revealed.

The files, seen by The Sunday Times, show that executives from the Qatari state-run broadcaster Al Jazeera signed a television contract making the huge offer as the bidding campaigns to host the World Cup were reaching a climax.

13  Economy / Economics / BitGo Goldman Crypto Custody and Fidelity Launch on: March 09, 2019, 09:58:54 PM
Very interesting interview with BitGo’s CEO Mike hi
He is sharing his thoughts about BitGo development , coming Goldman crypto custody and Fidelity trial launch
It is very bullish all together

After reading all of that i see that crypto technology is rapidly transforming in to incredible industry supported by biggest player


[Goldman] would be tremendous for the industry,” Belshe says. “They’d bring five or ten billion into custody in just a few months, just by being Goldman. And then that could cause the price [of Bitcoin] to spike, and it could spike on its own by a factor of ten…I’d love to have them in the space.”


The same goes for Fidelity, whose much-awaited crypto business recently soft-launched with a few clients. Currently, the firm is just offering bitcoin custody.


“I would bet money that they just put the brakes on and say we’re going to see how this goes for three to six months. They don’t want to take a hundred-billion-dollar risk on brand new tech.”

https://www.theblockcrypto.com/2019/03/07/heres-what-bitgos-ceo-expects-of-goldman-sachs-and-fidelitys-crypto-custody-plans/

He notes that Goldman Sachs considered white labeling BitGo’s product, pursuing a pilot schem

BitGo wants to build a ‘virtual order book’ to radically transform crypto’s market structure

BitGo, the crypto custodian, announced a partnership earlier this year that would allow clients to trade without moving coins out of cold storage
The firm is looking to expand that platform to create a global pool of liquidity, connecting possibly dozens of exchanges

14  Economy / Economics / Reason of Next Financial Crisis on: March 07, 2019, 12:00:40 PM
 Reason of next economic crisis can be here

 US officials say they will investigate the risky $1.6 trillion 'leveraged loan' market
 Looks like deja vu from 2008 but much more bigger
 
Bank of England Governor Mark Carney compared it to the subprime mortgage crisis of 2007.
 https://www.businessinsider.com/leveraged-loans-fsb-inquiry-into-16-trillion-market-2019-3?r=US&IR=T

The $1.6 trillion market has recently seen lending to companies with lower credit ratings occur at much greater levels than previously, leading to a proposed review later this year, FSB Chairman Randal Quarles told the Financial Time


The FT wrote: "Regulators could act if their findings point to actual hazards in the market for leveraged loans
I am curious what way regulators will deal with that.
But if that will happen bitcoin can be alternative

16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Buy FB Cryptocurrency on Popular Exchanges on: March 01, 2019, 12:06:10 PM
It looks like that soon will be possible  to buy FB coin on popular exchanges
FB want to launch his crypto in first half of 2019

According to reports from Bloomberg and later The New York Times, Facebook is building a digital payments system for WhatsApp, its end-to-end encrypted messaging app. It would let users send and receive cash without having to pay fees

The New York Times' report on Thursday provides a tentative timeline for when it could finally launch: The paper's sources say Facebook is aiming to launch something in the first half of 2019. The company has also reportedly talked to cryptocurrency exchanges, platforms where users can buy and sell digital currencies, about supporting Facebook's product.

I think it  will be best way to promote crypto currencies
For many people with zero knowledge cryptocurrency is kind of fraud or even criminal
Now thanks FB coin they will  most likely to learn what crypto currencies  really is
And we will have yet another stable coin that time with use cases

17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / House bills would revisit regulation of cryptocurrencies on: February 20, 2019, 08:31:30 AM
Surprise and by my opinion it explain current price rise
Crypto press is not sharing that news yet
Take close look and read


The bill would clarify which virtual currencies qualify as commodities, provide optional regulatory structure

House bills with bipartisan support would direct regulators to examine new ways to oversee digital assets and protect them from manipulation, as some lawmakers strive to make financial technologies more mainstream.

In the U.S., a group known as the Virtual Commodity Association has been working to establish an industry-sponsored regulator tasked with governing digital assets. If the idea moves forward, it would function in a similar manner to stock markets, where conduct is partly policed by the industry itself.

https://www.rollcall.com/news/congress/house-bills-revisit-regulation-cryptocurrencies

If that bill will pass then even ETF will be possible


“Virtual currencies and the underlying blockchain technology has a profound potential to be a driver of economic growth,” Soto said in a statement. “That’s why we must ensure that the United States is at the forefront of protecting consumers and the financial well-being of virtual currency investors, while also promoting an environment of innovation to maximize the potential of these technological advances.”


18  Economy / Economics / Does USA-China War Begin-Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng Arrested on: December 06, 2018, 01:23:44 PM
Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng also deputy chairwoman and the daughter of Huawei’s founder  was arrested on December 1,

Meng's arrest will immediately heighten tensions between Washington and Beijing just days after the world’s two largest economies agreed on a truce in their growing trade conflict. It will, or at least should, also prompt any US execs currently in China to think long and hard if that's where they want to be, say, tomorrow when Xi decides to retaliate in kind.

Somebody get mad in USA
If all that will be not clarify very fast we will see war between China and USA
USA stock are going further down
 it will be also real test for bitcoin
Will be bitcoin neutral to all that rumor

19  Economy / Gambling discussion / The social media tipsters who win when you lose on: November 27, 2018, 08:53:07 PM
Lets continue bookies investigation
Worth to read
Chris Meredith reviews tipsters for the website the Casual Gambler. He estimates around half of online tipsters are affiliated with a betting company.

This means that when tipsters post their tips on social media they include a link to the betting company's site. What is rarely made clear is that the tipster has a financial arrangement with that betting company, one which means the tipster either receives a fixed sum for every person who creates an account with the firm, or more popularly, take a cut of around 30% of the punter's losses.

https://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-trending-36580678

So it looks like bookies know who will win
It could be also nice opportunity
If you know fake tipster like that you can lay his tips on exchange
20  Economy / Economics / Bitcoin and Nasdaq and NYSE on: November 27, 2018, 02:34:28 PM
 Nasdaq Inc. is moving ahead with a plan to list Bitcoin futures
We can say yet another future to fool us but  Nasdaq wants to with cooperation of VanEck  ETF

The Nasdaq futures will be based off the Bitcoin’s price on numerous spot exchanges, as compiled by VanEck Associates Corp., the person said. CME uses prices from four markets, while it’s just one at Cboe

Yet another big name what want to list his own future will be NYSE
New York Stock Exchange owner Intercontinental Exchange Inc. said last week it will launch its own contracts on Jan. 24

24 January  is scheduled launch of Bakkt

Maybe that news are good prognostic for ETF approval
Whatever to think about it both Nasdaq and Nyse are big names maybe not enough big for our lovely Jame but big
