Cryptocurrency news – September 4

1. China might ban ICOs

2. BTC mining banned in Russia?

3. Crypto investments vs stock investments

4. Ukraine regulates cryptocurrencies

5. Free Dash conferences in Venezuela


1. Reportedly, the Chinese government has made a decision regarding regulating ICOs. According to Caixin’s report, even though there has been no official statement from the Chinese government, it is expected that ICOs are perceived as violating already existing laws for accumulating funds. Due to that news, a conference dedicated to ICOs in Beijing, which was supposed to take place on 2nd of September, has been canceled.
More: http://dowbit.com/china-might-ban-ico/

2. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies don’t have easy lives in Russia. Although no official regulations have been introduced, the inconsistent statements of people in power definitely aren’t building trust. Currently forbidding mining Bitcoin in private households is in consideration. At the same time, the largest electricity providers in the country are discussing with miners, how to make the mining process more competitive in Russia.
More: http://dowbit.com/mining-bitcoin-russia-banned/

3. For many traditional stock exchange investors, a word “cryptocurrency” is a synonym of “gambling”. The truth is, assets like Bitcoin or other digital currencies have a very speculative and volatile nature. Investors usually try to estimate the potential growth rate before investing their capital. They usually use financial reports, fundamental analysis as well as analysis of the company’s environment. Unfortunately, the real value of cryptocurrencies is almost impossible to estimate, due to the young age of companies and the whole market.
More: http://dowbit.com/do-cryptocurrency-investments-have-anyth…/

4. During the meeting at the end of August 2017, the government attempted to determine the legal status of digital currencies such as Bitcoin. Ministers agreed to make the actual decision in 3 weeks time. According to Parliament’s People’s Deputy, Oleksander Danchenko, ministers will cooperate with The Ministry of Finance, National Bank of Ukraine, the Verkhovna Rada and the blockchain community, to solve the issue.
More: http://dowbit.com/ukrainian-government-regulates-cryptocur…/

5. Twelve free conferences in Venezuela are to be sponsored by Dash, starting in September and taking place until the end of the year. The idea of these events is an increase of knowledge about virtual currencies (especially Dash) amongst Venezuelans. Increasing hyperinflation caused the popularity of Bitcoin and Ethereum to rise – these two seem to be more effective in terms of value than Venezuelan Bolivar.

It is impressive that you keep posting every day and it is not copied informations. You should promote your website more because you offer good information and maybe some people are interested but dont see your website. It is hard to compete these days because there are a lot of website like yours and all of them offer the same thing. The quality and promoting will make the difference
