The crackdown on Bitcoins by commercial and central banks will also make their use much more limited and their value fall (as we're seeing currently).

My view is that it's good tech, but used badly.

Those you mention control EVERY market (FOREX/Bond/Stock Exchanges etc) and since last year have been moving into cryptos. They have deliberately shorted the crypto market lately purely to buy 'at a discount'........because they can.

The chairmen of the SEC and CFTC, the two federal regulators tasked with overseeing cryptocurrencies, appeared before the Senate Banking Committee today to discuss their regulatory approach to the market.

Edit: Green as for as the eye can see re- crypto movement.
I'm guessing it must be good news

(For the record, i stand by my prediction of the next big move starting soon/Spring).

I get that there are no responses as cryptos are new to many, mistrusted etc, but the result of the meeting is the equivalent of the 'Man from Del Monte' saying YES!
This technology is the future so please take the time to learn..............the sooner the better!

This thread should be pinned imo as this 'topic' will be a constant throughout the year.

The power used to mine coins to exceed that currently drawn by Icelands houses!!

A. It's a good job that the majority of Bitcoins have already been mined then.
B. Funny how this was never mentioned when Bitcoin was at $3 and never considered a threat to 'the status quo'..........

Might as well mine loads of bitcoin rather than waste geothermal energy to the laws of entropy.

Just watching a show on Auntie Beeb re- Bitcoin/cryptos.
How scared are the authorities? Very! But why, when it's an OPEN and easily traceable system?
You've got to laugh

I'm looking forward to a similar show on the Central Banking system that robs EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US DAILY..............but i'll not hold my breath.

You are touching on it, a currency no longer controlled by any countries government, freely tradeable within their domain. Circumventing politicians and perhaps strict taxation.

Far from it.
Circumventing taxation is best left to the elite. It's what they do best.
I look forward to your thread as you seem to have an interest.

Edit: As blockchain technology is a fully de-cetralised system, ie not open to any kind of manipulation/fraud, it'll be interesting to see where our tax dollars DO actually go other than the privately owned Bank of England (currently around 1bil p/w?).

I have been trying really hard to get a grip on all this crypto currency stuff, but have more questions than answers. I'm not a total technophobe, but will confess to being a bit behind the curve.

I've read about storing bitcoins in virtual wallets, if these are on my laptop what stops someone hacking in and nicking my hard earned?

What is the idea behind these currencies, is it that all other currencies will become obsolete in the future, and everyone will use these?

How will countries balance their economy without being able to print more/less currency to bring inflation up/down?

Who ultimately makes new currency?
Could I just start up a new one and call it Stuckcoin, and have a load of 'in the knows' buy it?

On the above, how does anyone know that at the inventor (if that is even the right word) of bit coin isn't going to say 'Hey look, I've got a s**t load more of these than anyone knew about'?

How is the man in the street to know what anything is worth without having his finger on the pulse, when crypto's prices fluctuate so wildly? Basically you could buy a car worth 10.000 bit coins one day, only to find out it's worth 1 bitcoin the next?

Who will decide which crypto is going to'rule', a bit like the VHS/Betamax war?

This is just a selection of my questions, sorry if all of this has been covered before, but I just ain't getting it.

 


Hey, where did we go days when the rain came?
