  • Senate Crypto hearing today: What happened? https://youtube.com/watch?v=Enyee54nOvE Today the committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs held a hearing on “Examining Regulatory Frameworks for Digital Currencies and Blockchain.” They talked about government role in money, suspicion of the tech sector, and what they see in cryptocurrency's future. As always, there was some good, bad, and ugly. I go over the highlights of the hearing. The witnesses included: Mr. Jeremy Allaire, Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Circle, on behalf of The Blockchain Association Dr. Rebecca M. Nelson, Specialist in International Trade and Finance, Congressional Research Service Professor Mehrsa Baradaran, Professor of Law, University of California, Irvine School of Law. #bitcoin #blockchain #crypto #regulation #news

  • Australia Bans Cash Transactions over $10k, Bitcoin exempt! https://youtube.com/watch?v=q6D2EfnbiBI Australia plans to ban cash transactions for amounts over $10k AUD ($6900USD). This reflects a worldwide crack down on cash use, and is a huge violation of financial privacy. It also forces people to use the banking system, pay bank fees, and trust banks with their financial data whether they want to or not. Draft legislation of this ban has just been released, and it exempts cryptocurrency. Can cryptocurrency save us from having all of our purchases tracked and recorded? #bitcoin #crypto #privacy #news #regulation

What happened? https://youtube.com/watch?v=6Tdl7gxcOyw Tomorrow was meant to be the well publicized $4.5 million lunch between Warren Buffett and Tron CEO Justin Sun (including other prominent members of the crypto community), but it was postponed because apparently Sun has kidney stones.

  • 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
