According to his Linkedin he obtained a bachelor's degree from Leeds. Where'd the doctorate come from?

Some of the SEC ETF comments are really cringeworthy.

I am requesting that BTC EFT be classified as securities by the SEC.

They stopped all comments on July 11.

Likely because they read mine that I submitted that day and they needed no further comments.

I said something like: Approve this ETF. Not to make Bitcoin more relevant, but to keep the SEC relevant.

I'm sure they read that and decided "approved".

I left checking prices for last few days and it is above $8000 now. What is the reason ?

my only conclusion, after 5 years plus in BTC is that the current Bitcoin rise in price is due to: "Unicorn Fairy Farts" or UFF.


The UFF factor seems strong this month, IMHO. Smiley

No idea, but not astronomical. Maybe I'm wrong. Or maybe it's the first collision in the moronosphere.

Also on the panel was Chris Taylor, chief operating officer at Everledger, a company that is trying to use the blockchain to track (and miraculously “protect”) diamonds and other assets. Here's an excerpt from his contribution:
It's the same as any system - it's garbage in, garbage out. So you've got to make sure that the participants that you're allowing to contribute to the network are trustworthy.

Haha good find. This guy seems like a complete fucking idiot.

Blockchain doesn't solve everything. It doesn't solve entirely problems that couldn't be solved in other ways. But we believe blockchain solves the problems that we're solving in a better way than traditional database technology can provide.

Yeah that's a relevant point. Gold isn't really the safe haven asset it used to be, and it's just been slipping further and further into the abyss. The only use for it nowadays is jewellery and wedding gifts.

Crypto is interesting because it was conceived as a tool for decentralized exchange, but now it's becoming a hedge. Traders are getting into it because of the huge movements that it has, and more and more people are looking at it as an investment tool or a place to hide away money that they don't want to be taxed. That's also why there;s all this buzz about the ETF conception as well I think.

At least one of the ETF applications is indeed for a basket of 10 coins.
https://altcointoday.com/bitwise-files-with-us-securities-and-exchange-commission-to-launch-crypto-etf/

O.k.  Factually, the application is there, but seems like something like that is much further down the road, no?  We would have to cross the barrier of bitcoin only first before going down that seemingly weird road of a basket of cryptos.

And how would the system choose, exactly which cryptos to include in the basket?  I'm sure the application says, but I cannot see any reliable methodology that has been established, yet in part because the history of alt cryptos is much shorter, smaller liquidity and a lot more volatile than bitcoin.  Even bitcoin has it's limitations in terms of a short history and questions/concerns about volatility and liquidity.

Quote from: stolfi
Technically, the centralization of mining (and other flaws whose description would not fit here) means that the the cryptocurrency concept is fundamentally flawed, a failure.  It may not have been obvious at the beginning, but the centralization of bitcoin was already an undeniable fact by 2013 or even earlier.

After publishing the article, Meduza added an update to clarify that the former Qiwi programmer could not take advantage of the 500,000 mined bitcoins, as they were “lost” at some point.


I'll believe that when they provide the address.

So some of these managed to get 20-50% of daily blocks for months when there were hundreds or thousands of GPUs?
