    should I remind you that you work with pipes for a living ?

    anyway, some BitCoin ETF that was going to launch has been "suspended" by the SEC (or CFTC can't remember) for lack of "proper" financial underlying instrument

    I think the biggest threats to blockchain is going to be simpler tech developed by Apple and Google to make micro-payments and micro-transfer extremely efficient and cheap

    you don't really need blockchain tech to operate a secure and inexpensive transfer system, that was the original idea behind Paypal when it was created

    Not the first Bitcoin ETF to get denied by the SEC. The underlying issues of transparency and KYC still exist. Bitcoin will never get SEC approval until they address those issues.

    That is Ripple's (XRP) MO. Ledgerchain rather than blockchain. Cross border money transfers for fractions of a cent. There's serious potential for online companies like AirBNB and Uber to use this to distribute payments worldwide quickly for almost cost.

    should I remind you that you are a confused belgian boiler room fluffer - not sure where you got the idea I am a plumber or piping eng

    as you also do not know that both apple and google have tried to roll out both apple pay and google wallet - neither has gained much traction

    actually that ETF was pre-approved, but eventually got denied access to Commodities Exchange by CFTC, will need to dig up that news again somewhere

    nothing to do with KYC though, as ETF are listed and market participants clearly identified

    That is Ripple's (XRP) MO. Ledgerchain rather than blockchain. Cross border money transfers for fractions of a cent. There's serious potential for online companies like AirBNB and Uber to use this to distribute payments worldwide quickly for almost cost.
    absolutely, like eBay did with PayPal

    we need to have some kind of easy "funding" and "transfer" procedure that is just too great to ignore, like PayPal was once

    I bought Omise Go just as I liked the name, at 20 baht in July - went up to over 300. That and KNC are going to soar. Bitcoin is too risky.

    first time I have heard of it - it is an ICO built on ECR20 - using the eth chain - decentralised crypto swaps -

    it will be superceded by lightning network implementation

    Kyber Network is a Singapore based decentralized and trustless exchange that facilitates instant conversion of crypto-assets with guaranteed liquidity. The Kyber Network protocol will be key to promote liquidity of crypto-assets in the blockchain ecosystem, and improve the perception of tokens as a tradable asset class to the greater public.
    it has just been introduced - september - run from singapore and seems to be aimed at mainland chinese - just being listed on binance , where you pay 100K USD to be listed , which will cause a bump up in price - looks like a pump and dump

    An interesting development, you can get cash loans using your blockchain assets as collateral.

    Not sure that's a good advertisement for this tech.

    I won't,
    Was a great investment for those that got in early, could easily end up at 10,000 or a bunch of zeros less.

    need more proof than a fluffy article - singapore is trying to become an ICO haven - though as I have said before , I think most ICO's are dodgy scams pasted on top of ECR20

    Tezos lost 75% - egos squabbling over the spoils
