The state of the market's cryptocurrency is currently displayed in this photo.  Sand is the unwillingness and opposition to Bitcoin adoption.  The guys who push the car are HODLers.  The car is Bitcoin.





And the guys watching it (u can see their shadows on the sand) and the guy with the camera are us - WO thread members.
Yah, the guys pushing are buyers. HODLers ain't doing shit.

HODLers are in the car being carried...

https://bitcoinist.com/gemini-backed-bitcoin-interest-account/

6.2% annual interest for a Bitcoin account sounds appealing. The idea is good and may attract many investors. But what if BlockFi turns out to be the new Bitconnect? Who cares that it is backed by Gemini?Any thoughts on this?

Posted similar question a few pages back,but got quickly devoured by pages of memes that monopolised the short attention son of WO thread... (not whining at all, I like WO memes!)

6.2% is appealing, but remember that you are being KYC’d if you deposit. Basically you are giving up your privacy for 6.2% yearly interest.

Keep in mind that if you deposit from an address, simple chain forsensic analysis will drive the G-Guys to your BTC stash.

EDIT: Reason #1 against lending your Bitcoins to a third party is: “Not your keys, not your Bitcoins” . I think It is obvious, but it need to be remembered every time. Even if Gemini is a state of the art exchange, the risk is still present.

More than that, you are giving your private keys to a third party entity. What if they bankrupt or they get "hacked" or their CEO dies or whatever?

Yes , of course, “Not your keys, not your Bitcoins” is the reason #1 to avoid this kind of schemes. I thought It was obvious, but yes, you are right, it need to be remembered every time. I think Gemini is a state of the art exchange, but the risk is still present.

Gemini is providing custodial services not running the business.  It’s not backed by Gemini and by definition has to be a fractional reserve.

It’s unfortunate because this will most likely end badly, and the Gemini name will be mud.

Yes, what I meant is that if Gemini (the custodial) gets hacked, your bitcoin are gone forever. This is indipendent from the service, but dependent from the fact you are going away your BTC!

It’s worse than that.  BlockFi is selling or rehypothecating your Bitcoin. Gemini doesn’t need to be hacked for you to lose everything. Only “reserves” are stored with Gemini.  Who the hell knows where your Bitcoin actually end up.

From their Terms of Service

Quote
10. Consent to Rehypothecate

In consideration for the interest earned on your account, you grant BlockFi the right, subject to applicable law, without further notice to you, to hold the cryptocurrency held in your account in BlockFi’s name or in another name, and to pledge, repledge, hypothecate, rehypothecate, sell, lend, or otherwise transfer or use any amount of such cryptocurrency, separately or together with other property, with all attendant rights of ownership, and for any period of time and without retaining in BlockFi’s possession and/or control a like amount of cryptocurrency, and to use or invest such cryptocurrency at its own risk. You acknowledge that, with respect to assets used by BlockFi pursuant to this paragraph, (i) you may not be able to exercise certain rights of ownership and (ii) BlockFi may receive compensation in connection with lending or otherwise using cryptocurrency in its business to which you will have no entitlement.

From their FAQ

Quote
What does BlockFi do with account assets?

BlockFi generates interest on assets held in Interest Accounts by lending them to trusted institutional and corporate borrowers. To ensure loan performance, BlockFi lends crypto on overcollateralized terms (similar to the structure of our crypto-backed loans). Furthermore, BlockFi’s automated risk management system monitors positions 24/7, providing the same trusted risk management system used with BlockFi’s crypto-backed loans.  BlockFi has the ability to terminate a borrow in a timely fashion and also manages reserve balances to facilitate customer withdrawals from Interest Accounts. Reserves are stored securely with Gemini, a New York trust company regulated by NYDFS.
