Official statement from Bitmex:

Quote
[Forwarded from BitMEX Announcements]
United States CFTC & DOJ filing
In response to reports of the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and Department of Justice's decision to file charges against HDR Global Trading Limited and related parties, we have the following statement:

“We strongly disagree with the U.S. government’s heavy-handed decision to bring these charges, and intend to defend the allegations vigorously. From our early days as a start-up, we have always sought to comply with applicable U.S. laws, as those laws were understood at the time and based on available guidance.”

In the meantime, the BitMEX platform is operating entirely as normal and all funds are safe. To allay any potential customer concerns, pending withdrawal requests were processed at 17:45 UTC, in line with our standard procedures. We will process another off-cycle withdrawal at 08:00 UTC, 02 Oct 2020, and then 13:00 UTC, as usual.

Yeah when I saw that I though, wait a fuc.... oh nevermind.

Hayes is a LOT of things, and bold is one of them... even a bit of an asshole from time to time on social media.

But he is NOT a fool.

Brandt is astutely pointing out why this matters, and why it is good for Bitcoin.  (not that much of a fan of his... but he's right here)

If you start with the premise that all value derives from government-mandated, central bank-issued money, you squint really hard, and you abuse hallucinogenic substances, then—maybe it begins to look like that.

I am just trying to guess what Brandt means.

WTF?  How is Brandt right?  And how is regulation good for “cryptos”, as of which he spoke?

It's not really that regulations are good... it's that the big dogs are really starting to step up.  They have to, so they can try to control Bitcoin next and be the next to get destroyed by it.

That's what I think is good... maybe Brant isn;t thinking that many levels deep.  Maybe I am just gassy.. Dunno.

Also... if this is handled like all the rest of how Bitmex has worked and there are no big gotchas it's also gonna light a fire once people start to realize it's all gonna be OK.

As per Usual.


  I've been out of the loop - has China still been banning BTC on regular intervals the last couple years?

The monthly update:



September 2020 - so far no storm in sight, but it is getting colder for sure.

Unreal, another month already passed. Autumn has arrived, orange turned into red. Down 7.55 %, 117 pages to catch up. Does everything go down the drain? No! We are 50% up this year and I will have this month my first week off this year. Really looking forward to read you soon!

Gentlemen, I hope you are doing fine and start enjoying the season in comfort! Smiley

@Jopendus
Here's an interesting comparison. silk road arrests/seizure, BTC-E arrests/seizure, and this moment with #Bitmex whatever that amounts to. All 3 moments are alike.

BUY THE DIP!  Grin


dear comrades.

fighting this uphill battle for years against shitcoinery is a toxic and brutal sport. that is why I thought I put a little joke in. a few hours later it suddenly dawned on me. I hadn't even bother to check...   and comrades... look at that:

Quote
What is DIP Token?
DIP Tokens act as the native internal currency that is inseparable from the protocol and network of its users. DIP tokens are needed to earn transaction fees (% of insurance premiums or fixed cost), incentivize and reward platform users to bring risk to the network, build and maintain risk transfer products. The total supply of Etherisc Tokens is 1 Billion

T H I S is some high end shitcoinery

there is even another one:  DIP

Outdated, obsolete language.  Don’t you know that this isn’t the horse-and-buggy days?  Language evolves.

There is now a much worse “four-letter word”.
