5% #Bitcoin + 95% cash beats S&P500: more return and less risk .. every year, 6 years in a row. Note that max yearly loss (risk) of 5% Bitcoin + 95% cash is -5% .. S&P did -6% in 2018 (and -38% in 2008!!).

As an highly asymmetrical bet (limited downside compared to huge upside) even a small percentage of Bitcoin in an investment portfolio can give a massive boost on expected result.

This is why institutional investors are paying premiums up to 40% to gain exposure to BTC  trough GBTC (Greysacale Bitcoin Fund, selling his shares at an equivalent of selling BTC@10,300USD).

This is just a glimpse of that will happen when the BTC ETF will be approved: Wall Street Money flowing into Bitcoin.
Yet another demonstration of the "it is not Bitcoin needs Wall Street to survive, but Wall Street needs Bitcoin to survive" principle.

They could have simply disabled the local bitcoins feature for Finnish addresses/customers. This draconian choice is probably preparation for some more significant "institutional" turn. As in: government friendly. I stand by my opinion: Bisq and other decentralized markets are the way to go for the future.

I do not know, but I think there is a lot of pressure with the regulations, the previous week they closed BestMixer, Bitcoin Blender closed voluntarily, Binance DEX excludes 30 countries, they only want KYC.

The Securities and Exchange Commission today sued Kik Interactive Inc. for conducting an illegal $100 million securities offering of digital tokens.  The SEC charges that Kik sold the tokens to U.S. investors without registering their offer and sale as required by the U.S. securities laws.

couple of accuracy points :
blender beginning to look a bit exit scammy https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=436467.msg51345567#msg51345567
dex can't exclude countries https://twitter.com/cz_binance/status/1135434923970457601
but overall, yes, regulatory pressure is mounting all over

Localbitcoins seems to have all the trappings of a scam site at this point. They locked my account, refuse to release my coins (relatively trivial amount, but real money nonetheless), they demand all sorts of id and photos which I have sent and still nothing.

Considering this along with their new clonecoin site, I'd say get your money out of there and stay the hell away. Things like that only get worse.

Kik has been building a crypto legal warchest. They feel SEC has far overstepped their regulatory authority in the crypto space. They say that they want this fight. May be sour grapes -- marshalling the crypto faithful to donate to the legal fund -- but who am I to say?

As for "brown people from 3rd world countries", does my girlfriend count?

She's got ten times more brains than you, you clueless moron.

BREAKING NEWS:  Old, average or below average boomer-man slums it up and heads into the Congo jungle to practice white privilege with goal of securing female specimen that would be unattainable in his own environment.  This phenomenon has never before been witnessed in world history except with the case of Elwar, Calvin Ayre, and 1.2 billion other boomer men.
