Taxation Isn’t Just Theft – It’s Bad for Crypto Adoption

Crypto awareness is reaching levels almost unimaginable just years ago, with telecommunications giants, big banks, mainstream media, and even professional sports teams now discussing and flouting digital assets. AT&T now allows customers to pay their phone bills in bitcoin, Japanese SMS giant Line is adding an FSA-approved crypto exchange to its hugely popular chat app, and the NFL’s Miami Dolphins have named litecoin their “official cryptocurrency.” Still, with all its wonderful attributes, it’s puzzling to some why crypto isn’t even bigger than it already is, and the answer may lie in one buzzkill of a word: taxes.

Hedera’s Performance Comes at the Expense of Decentralization, Skeptics Claim

US-based blockchain firm Hedera Hashgraph launched its mainnet on Monday. Despite being supported by some large companies, skeptics say its blockchain version lacks key features that ensure decentralization. How Can Hedera Handle 10k Transactions per Second? Hedera claims to process about 10,000 transactions per second (tps). The speed is incredible, considering that Bitcoin handles 2.8 tps and Ethereum can process about 15 tps. However, how does Hedera manage to achieve such performance? For example, Ripple claims to be capable of processing up to 50,000 tps and compete with Visa, but it uses a kind of centralized network. Hedera uses a proprietary algorithm called Hashgraph. It was invented by Hedera’s co-founder and chief scientist Leemon Baird. He was a professor of computer science at the US Air Force Academy and holds a Ph.D. in computer science. The point is that the […]

VanEck Solid X Disables Their ETF Application Early

Well, here’s a real downer. If you had high hopes for the possibility of a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) finally getting approved this October, you can douse those hopes in gasoline and set them on fire. Why? Not because the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has decided against it, not because of any delays, but because the instigators of the ETF proposal – CBOE, VanEck and Solid X – are withdrawing it on their own terms.  VanEck Pulls Out, No Answer Given What happened? Seriously, these companies have been trying to get this ETF approved since March of 2017, and now, right as we’re at the end and the SEC is ready to issue a final decision the following month, it just gets yanked out from underneath? How and why does that work? Those of us really searching for answers […]

VanEck-SolidX Cans its Bitcoin ETF Before the SEC Response Deadline

Bitcoin enthusiasts who had high hopes for the VanEck – SolidX ETF will be sorely disappointed. After careful review -and probably knowing all too well there would be no approval – the team has decided to withdraw its proposal altogether. This is the second Bitcoin ETF to be withdrawn this month. About a week ago, CBOE took a similar course of action.  VanEck – SolidX Withdraws It was a matter of time until the VanEck – SolidX Bitcoin ETF application was either rejected or withdrawn. Over the past few years, there has been no indication the SEC has any plans to approve such investment vehicles. Especially given the lack of Bitcoin regulation across the US, such an ETF cannot be launched. There is also the ongoing market volatility which poses its own set of problems.  By actively withdrawing the proposal, […]

Stellar Spikes – Then Falls Again Minutes Later

If you thought bitcoin wasn’t doing well as of late, just look at some of its main competitors, specifically Stellar. The currency has fallen greatly since it peaked in early 2018, but then jumped back up during today’s early morning hours – only to drop back down a few moments later. Stellar Is Flailing at Press Time It’s another classic case of a cryptocurrency that doesn’t seem to know what it wants to do. Bitcoin enthusiasts have been seeing this quite a bit over the past few months. Bitcoin rose beyond $10,000 and then jumped into the $13,000 range, only to fall back down quickly and hover near $10,200 without moving much this past week. At the same time, many people watching bitcoin’s behavior are probably still thinking to themselves, “Well, at least it’s not as bad as 2018.” For […]

Bitcoin’s Case ‘Inadvertently’ Advertised By Blackstone Boss

The CEO of the world’s biggest alternative investment firm has unwittingly endorsed bitcoin after suggesting it is a natural tool to avoid government control.

There’s no one who says, ‘I don’t care,’” he told the publication.  “Part of that is to make sure the economy is as insulated as it can be from excesses. Another part of it is to control bad behavior.” Schwarzman was speaking within the context of Blackstone’s reputation for investing in alternative assets. Bitcoin, however, will not form one of them, he hinted, casually rejecting the idea of owning any. […]
