  • France and Germany ban Libra: what's next, and why msm coverage of crypto needs to change https://youtube.com/watch?v=LIu172YsJ1g This week France and Germany agreed to block Facebook's Libra. They said in a joint statement: “no private entity can claim monetary power, which is inherent to the sovereignty of nations” What does this mean for the project moving forward? And why is so much of the mainstream media coverage of the blockchain industry still so terrible? #blockchain #libra #facebook #regulation #ban

  • Day 2 Libra Hearing Highlights: Sh*tcoins, not crypto, and word play https://youtube.com/watch?v=btH_JFUSoOU Today was day 2 of hearings for Facebook: The U.S. House Financial Services Committee hosted a hearing on Libra, and there were actually some pretty great moments! I gathered some of my highlights of the almost 7 hour hearing. #bitcoin #blockchain #libra #regulation #crypto

  • Libra Hearing Day 1: Biggest Facepalm Moments https://youtube.com/watch?v=wFXrv3oLsVo I watched the Senate Banking Committee hearing on Facebook's Libra cryptocurrency so you didn't have to! This is the first of many videos I'll be doing to cover this topic, and this one shows off my biggest facepalm moments. I completely sympathise with politicians who don't understand this technology: this is not their area of expertise, and I hope they continue to ask questions to learn more. What I don't like is when those questions seem more like belligerent and condescending accusations than actual efforts to learn. #bitcoin #blockchain #libra #regulation #crypto

  • Breaking: Facebook's Libra Hearing, w/ Caitlin Long https://youtube.com/watch?v=IUyvMhgZfNs Today was the first hearing for the Facebook Libra Cryptocurrency.

  • US Treasury Secretary Mnuchin talks Bitcoin: what he REALLY means https://youtube.com/watch?v=CUI01OLcS30 U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin held a press conference today where he spoke about the dangers of cryptocurrency and why he's not comfortable with Facebook launching its own currency, the Libra. Because politicians can sometimes be difficult to understand, I have gone to the trouble of translating what he actually meant for everyone. Major takeaway: Bitcoin and Libra are both threatening to the govt, and it is the Treasury Secretary's job to protect the USD at all costs. #bitcoin #blockchain #libra #regulation #crypto

  • Weekly Crypto Recap: US Gov to Libra "You must stop!", Cuba eyes crypto, and more! https://youtube.com/watch?v=RoBlNnofETI FACEBOOK AND LIBRA: 2:19 Members of house of Representatives send open letter to Facebook telling them they need to stop development on Libra immediately: https://financialservices.house.gov/uploadedfiles/07.02.2019_-_fb_ltr.pdf They say: "It appears that these products may lend themselves to an entirely new global financial system that is based out of Switzerland and intended to rival U.S. monetary policy and the dollar." It is a similar rhetoric to that used by Brad Sherman in May when he called for a ban on Bitcoin and other Cryptos "due to the threat they pose to U.S. international financial power". Japan expresses concern over Libra: “It will move money into an absolutely virtual world, so it is completely different than other forms of digital payment.” UK is also wary of Libra and wants a long examination period. Meanwhile Russia's Deputy Finance Minister says that Libra will not be banned, and will be treated like all other cryptocurrencies. Facebook's David Marcus confirms that he will be testifying before both the Senate Banking Committee and the House Financial Services Committee, and tells people that trusting Facebook is not needed in order to get the benefit of Libra. Facebook has already applied for a NY BitLicense. NY is notoriously strict in handing these out. CUBA AND VENEZUELA: 30:08 It was announced on Cuba's state-run Television that the country is considering the use of cryptocurrency in order to bolster its finances, boost incomes and assist with market reforms. In Venezuela Maduro orders Bank of Venezuela to make the Petro available to the public. “I give the express order for transaction counters for The Petro to be opened in all Bank of Venezuela agencies.” TEZOS: 34:59 BTG Pactual plans to utilize the Tezos blockchain for security token offerings “Utilizing Tezos, a self-amending blockchain and smart contracts platform will encourage BTG Pactual and Dalma Capital to enhance their digitization efforts, by transacting in digital assets.” "We see Tezos as a global player with a robust blockchain for asset tokenization” CSW HEARING: 36:55 Stephen Palley, Lawyer covering the hearing, noted that a purported 2012 trust doc had font files copyrighted in 2015. Does this mean these documents submitted by CSW were forged? https://twitter.com/stephendpalley/status/1146556384126930950 QUICK HEADLINES: BITFINEX: 40:24 Bitfinex repays $100 million of loan from Tether + more! #bitcoin #blockchain #crypto #news #libra

  • US Govt tells Facebook: "Libra must stop!", CEO Shapeshift Erik Voorhees reacts https://youtube.com/watch?v=KrfT7QxGbcU Today the US House of Representatives Committee on Financial Services wrote Facebook a letter telling them to stop all work on Libra, their new cryptocurrency that they announced last week. CEO of Shapeshift Erik Voorhees reacts to the news and explains why Libra threatens Banks and the US Govt. "We write to request that Facebook and its partners immediately agree to a moratorium on any movement forward on Libra ... It appears that these products may lend themselves to an entirely new global financial system that is based out of Switzerland and intended to rival U.S. monetary policy and the dollar."

  • New Facebook Coin: Why Govt wants it shut down https://youtube.com/watch?v=1e-IAac9Qfc Facebook just released its whitepaper outlining their new coin, Libra. Soon after, Congresswoman Maxine Waters demanded that Facebook stop all development on the network until a hearing could be held. It's very clear that the government finds this new project threatening. Naomoji explains everything you need to know about Facebook's "Libra" coin, and why the government might want it banned. #bitcoin #blockchain #libra #government #crypto
