Seems like a lot of our members keep diving into politics and religion in threads where it's not appropriate, so I figured that maybe we should have an outlet for members to express their political/religious opinions. PLEASE KEEP IT CIVIL IN HERE! We all come from divergent histories and socioeconomic backgrounds, respect that some of us have had very different life experiences that lead us to perceive the world differently. My grandfather used to have family debates on Sundays before he died, and sometimes those debates got HEATED. At the end though, we all shook hands, hugged each other, and agreed to disagree. A debate should be to see if our own idea's stand up to scrutiny, not to demolish someone else's views. If you believe something, state why you believe it to be so instead of espousing as fact. Mods, if this isn't allowed, delete this post please!
Reuters article this morning entitled 'U.S. Treasury considering all tools to stop North Korea financing: official'. If the US, in cooperation with its global finance partners, choose to "choke" digital currencies via all means available, isn't there a fair risk that this entire marketplace gets disrupted until the threat of Mr. Kim is mitigated? - conduct DDOS on major exchanges - disallow BTC transactions - put all currencies in "transfer pergatory" - pump false alts as honey pots for the N. Korean hacks - etc. etc. Does the possibility of specific global threats impact your investments? Does the possibility of certain global threats outweigh others for you, or do you simply "index them" and go hell-bent-for-leather, as it used to be said in the US of A? Your opinions, please. "Hello, is this the NSA? Got anything, anything really strong to throw at the crypto world for a few months? Oh, I should call Israel? Or Russia? Thanks. I think I'll have M5 do that for us."
