    LatentNewb reacted to GiddyUp in Cryptocurrency a ‘Modern Miracle,” Not Going Away: CFTC Commissioner   
    I vote we go with the CFTC for regulation 
    https://www.ccn.com/cryptocurrency-a-modern-miracle-not-going-away-cftc-commissioner/
    "One of the top market regulators in the US said this week that cryptocurrency is a “technological revolution” that will one day be a part of every national economy."
    "Speaking on Monday before the BFI Summit at the United Nations, Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Commissioner Rostin Behnam discussed challenges faced by the agency as it regulates industries associated with the nascent blockchain field. However, far from denigrating this technology as a tool for criminals, he heaped copious praise upon it for its ability to positively transform the financial sector."
    “But virtual currencies may – will – become part of the economic practices of any country, anywhere. Let me repeat that: these currencies are not going away and they will proliferate to every economy and every part of the planet,” he said, adding:
    “We are witnessing a technological revolution. Perhaps we are witnessing a modern miracle.”

    LatentNewb reacted to VaR in How many people actually own cryptocurrency?   
    I've found the report pretty relevant because the sample size is almost 30k, a number high enough for the results to be reliable.
    As expected Korea and Japan are the countries more aware of crypto, SBI going with Ripple and XRP can be a turning point.
    Crypto and stocks may not be comparable but approx. a 50% of people in the US own stocks. I haven't found other countries rates but having the US a great tradition in investing I guess it will be similar or less.
    There's still plenty of room for growth!

    Insightful.   I've been wondering a while now, could XRP be something new in addition to a cryptocurrency/digital asset?  It's probably far-fetched but I've been curious if we could be at a point of something new.
  16. Thanks
    LatentNewb reacted to Sporticus in Ether & Ripple Doomed As Securities According to Regulation Exper   
    As a lawyer, who has worked in securities law, I am qualified to research and give opinions on whether XRP is a security.  In fact, early on both my wife, who is a law professor experienced in securities law, and I researched the XRP as securities topic thoroughly.   The definition of securities in the Act of 1933 nowhere comes near to including XRP as a security. There are no regulations or case law that remotely include an asset like XRP as a security.  XRP has been determined by an agency of the US Government as a commodity, as such, it is analogous to the status of an Apple.  Just because I buy an Apple at the supermarket does not give me an interest in the supermarket, the wholesaler or the Apple orchard.  Essentially, this is the conclusion we must reach if we are to accept Mr. Gensler, a bought off, washed-up bureaucrat’s,  shoot-from-the-hip nonsense.  Michael Arrington, who is likewise a securities expert, who actually understands XRP and Ripple,  has likewise given the opinion that XRP is not a security. Mr. Gensler is an ignorant FUDSTER slinging lies for the Beast-coin mafia.

    I don't see the worry. At worst, Ripple are forced to register XRP as a security in the USA which will cost them a few million in legals and compliance. It gets listed on major commodity or security exchanges. The gates are opened for institutional investors and speculators. How is this a long-term problem?

    LatentNewb reacted to WuWei in Ripple's Miguel Vias on the DLT Space and 2018 Rally   
    To look at what they've done in only five years makes Max's criticisms look like those of an impatient teenager. Again, only time will tell, but it's looking as if they're on a roll that's gaining some serious momentum. Ripple is essentially educating the world about the future of blockchain in moving the world's money. Having nearly thirty central banks show up at their conference last fall in NYC, is truly phenomenal for such a young company - they're earning respect in a big way. Look at the Goliaths that they've been taking on: CitiBank with their reluctance to lose all those "lesser banks" transfer fees, SWIFT with their near monopoly on the banking system, and even Hyperledger, who wisely opted to partner with them, lest they be slain. We will see....

    If you don't mind, please elaborate more on those CB rumors Buckor, I'd really like to know. I went back and listened to Brad's CNBC interview on 3/7 now that the excitement and hype has died down and noticed something interesting, Brad stated: "As it relates to Coinbase specifically, Coinbase will have to decide what they want to do, make the announcements that are appropriate for them, but we certainly don't comment on status of those kind of things".  I don't know, but it sounds like a done deal to me. We are probably just waiting on CB's 90 new hires to get properly onboarded--they started on the same day as that interview iirc.
    btw, your blog rocks!
