  1. Just published in a danish finance paper. Text in danish. Free for all during seven days. Original title: Kryptomilliardæren Chris Larsen er ikke i tvivl om fremtiden for betalinger: »Verden vil se helt anderledes ud om 10 år« https://finans.dk/investor/ECE10305446/kryptomilliardaeren-chris-larsen-er-ikke-i-tvivl-om-fremtiden-for-betalinger-verden-vil-se-helt-anderledes-ud-om-10-aar?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter%2F&ctxref=ext
  2. One of the most conservative countries in the world, yet with a keen interest in finance, choose to see opportunities in blockchain technology and crypto. Way ahead of many other countries in their approach to and embrace of the new frontier. Of course the world will follow at some point. That’s my bet at least.
  3. https://mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKCN1FZ0LD?__twitter_impression=true Not new I think(?), but reported by Reuters. Getting more traction in mainstream media.
  4. How Will Ripple Change the Future of Money Transfers?

    Really good read, thank you!
  5. ‘Detects fraudulent transaction” of 1,7 BN Dollars. From one office. Why doesn’t this get more attention? Clearly all watchdogs will now call for protection of consumers... Those pesky banks not having their house in order...So maybe crypto and blockchain one day will be the mitigator of bank frauds. That would be an interesting development. And why not? http://www.livemint.com/Industry/eGZ8tnwbZjlH8fezPqR6CM/Punjab-National-Bank-detects-fraudulent-transactions-of-over.html?facet=amp&utm_source=googleamp&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=googleamp&__twitter_impression=true
  6. If i read the artikel correctly its not a cap, just a processing matter with managing volume of interest and ensuring functionality?
  7. https://www.ft.com/content/d6db427c-10c1-11e8-940e-08320fc2a277 Good development in UK.
  8. So what’s the difference from trading in stocks or other assets...? Have lost 60% on one particular stock a couple of years ago due to my own bad analysis. Even if the regulatory framework is better for those kind of assets, the risk and opportunities requires knowledge and due diligence regardless of assets, wouldn’t you say?
  9. I agree with that. At the end of the day, crypto is the tech behind it, the enabler, and the digital overall wide domain is where the utility will lie. And as much as I like the somewhat rebellious connotation of crypto as such, it will most likely be similar to tcp/ip going forward. Completely uninteresting for the large majority, and just part of the plumbing. Could be argued that fiat is as digital as any other digital store of value/means of payment, only worse...
  10. Almost like Garlington says it, a quote from the article: "Some people say they should be described as crypto-assets, not cryptocurrencies," he said. I guess we will define the phenomenon of crypto for quite some time.

  12. At $3.89, Ripple (XRP) Will Dethrone Bitcoin (BTC)

    Betamax was technologically superior to VHS, yet lost the fight of the bandwagon. This is a long struggle against very powerful incumbents.
  13. It seems to bubble for sure, but it also looks like a pinch manoeuvre, coming from both the top and the bottom at the same time, given the central bank’s interests recently communicated. I was thrilled about the reaction from the head of BIS Augustin Carstens spewing vitriol about bitcoin and blockchain technology. He clearly defends his current big boys in the club. I’m new to this since a couple of months, but hey, if that isn’t a signal that Ripple is on to something potentially system shifting, with all its consequences, I’ve misunderstood something. Buying XRP regularly for a 3-5 year hold btw. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/06/bitcoin-and-cryptocurrencies-are-ponzi-bubbles-says-bis.html
  14. Interesting in FT today on smaller banks in Switzerland, Germany and Liechtenstein starting(?) to move towards embracing Blockchain and crypto.
  15. Are there any validation except zerohedge of the validity of this? Any other source? Can’t help of being slightly sceptical of the 180-degree turnaround.
