Thanks...interesting.

Upon an initial read, here are some nuggets: they distinguish between "payment stablecoins" and "endogenously collaterized stablecoins".
obviously, USDC/USDT fits into cat 1 and cat2 is like infamous 'almost dead' Luna. Cat 1 can only have cash, 90 day Treasury bills, deposits with Fed reserve and 7 day repurchasing agreements for 90 day bills backing it (at least 1:1). Another interesting point: deposits of payment stablecoins are deemed as legally belonging to a person, NOT to the institution which holds them. Even more interestingly, if a payment stablecoin issuer goes bankrupt, stablecoin owners have first dibs on remaining assets (their rights are higher than anybody else).

On a more sombre note, stablecoins are NOT covered by FDIC and it is expressly forbidden telling customers otherwise. BTW, the issuance of new "endogenously collaterized" stablecoins is prohibited for 2 years under moratorium, but current are  grandfathered in. Did not see a part if current "payment stablecoins" (like USDC/USDT) are grandfathered in or not-the doc it too long. Maybe someone else can pinpoint this part.

Obviously, Wall Street wants to "play" with stablecoins, but, personally, I don't see much need for them now, especially when fast payment rails would be established soon. Perhaps, stablecoins is a way for banks to get back into the payments (after they were effectively cut off by the FedNow system).

I actually have a friend who believes in more than just chem trails, he also believes in a flat earth, fake moon landing, mystical energy sources, and other crap. Yeah, I think he is crazy, but he is a nice guy and I enjoy his company......

I have lots of friends like that too! They are stark raving bonkers.
Thank goodness they are all just anonymous online fellow posters on this here famous Bitcointalk.org forum...


......
 By the way @sirazimuth - "This World is Ours" is my favourite of the songs you have shared with us.  Good stuff!

 edit: Okay, "Wild and Free" has it beat but I was thinking of the acoustic songs.


Thank you @homer.  
fyi  
"Wild and Free" was the last recording we made as a band (Family) in 1990. And my personal favorite studio recording.
Words, music, guitars, vocals...Eph  (RIP my friend. I miss you everyday. But your music will live on.)
Bass... sirazimuth
Drums ...CO

Funny story about the "Wild and Free" session.
I recently sent the track to the drummer who hadn't heard it for years.
It jogged his memory and he confessed there may have been a drum hardware issue on the last verse.
Back then we were on a tight budget so he didn't say anything and let it fly, as he felt good about how he played it.
I thought the drum sound was great and commented to him "I like how you just changed it up a little on last verse. That was awesome!"
And he was like "that's because I broke the hi hat on the last verse, but didn't say anything because no one noticed."...  lol, memories



Its only a model

 I'm surrounded by freaks!


Takes one to know one!   Wink

Don't hold your breath. I think he got permanently locked out many moons ago for reasons.
Albeit, it would nice to see the account activated again, just for nostalgia, etc.

I did not think you were insulting blacks or gays, but I am a white 66 year old baby boomer so as JJG says what the fuck do I know.

You made a good point once or twice.

It's probably because of how westerners use gas station toilets.


Now I am starting to appreciate that this thread is "going down hill."


But what is it?

Are "we" actually supposed to read to find out?

im doing fine btw...

lmao

If you are Adam.. you went a little coo-coo for coco puffs.. to my recollection... and sure we could revisit some of those olen days.... to see if we might get anywhere from those times versus these times.. and many of us made a lot of mistakes, but we ONLY have now to consider whether or the extent to which we might take some corrective actions... or what we are able to recover in terms of where we have been, where we are and where we might plan to go..


Quote from: TrustedBitcoiner link=topic=deleted post
bother, we haven't seen nothing yet.... 32k is a new beginning; starting <2 weeks from now.

crazy how times have changed... and yet here we are... amazing.

Sure.... it's been a crazy 6 years.. (right around the time that you started going a bit loonie.. if that might be you, Adam.. )... and even richieT has somewhat come around, but he seems to have had not fallen as far as some of the big blocker nutjobs.
