  • 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

  • Fmr Director US Mint: "Bitcoin is good competition for Gold and Fiat" https://youtube.com/watch?v=VqmAEB2xz04 Ed Moy, who was the 38th Director of the United States Mint, and one of the highest ranking government officials to have spoken out favorably about Bitcoin in its earliest days, at a time when NO ONE in government was talking about it. I chat with him about huge increase in the demand for gold that he saw during the Great Recession when he was in charge of the mint, why gold has perceived value rather than intrinsic value, the need for bitcoin and a money not controlled by government, and what regulation might look like in bitcoin’s future, according to his insider perspective. #bitcoin #blockchain #gold #fiat #regulation

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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." For an explanation of Libra, see my video: https://youtube.com/watch?v=1e-IAac9Qfc https://financialservices.house.gov/uploadedfiles/07.02.2019_-_fb_ltr.pdf #bitcoin #blockchain #libra #facebook #regulation

  • SEC's "Crypto Mom": "Encourage skepticism" https://youtube.com/watch?v=d7sZSpmluxY SEC Commissioner Hester M. Peirce sat down with me at Consensus 2019 to talk about individual responsibility in the crypto space and not relying too heavily on the government's tick of approval. "People have come to rely too heavily on what they see as an 'SEC seal of approval', and I always say to them, it's not that ... One of the best things we can do as a regulatory body is try to encourage skepticism." We talk about how regulatory bodies have been doing so far in keeping up with the crypto space, and the future of decentralization and how crypto is making us completely rethink regulation. Hester Peirce has been a strong supporter of crypto from within the SEC, and I'm very grateful for her time! #bitcoin #blockchain #regulation #decentralization

  • Can bitcoin and regulation coexist? https://youtube.com/watch?v=VNgK627yTHU Recently I was invited to speak at the Center for Free Enterprise at the University of Louisville, and so I thought that it would be a great place for crypto attorney Sasha Hodder and myself to discuss the beginnings of bitcoin and the current regulatory environment. I see the framework of the discussion as Bitcoin vs Govt, and would love to know what you think of the issue! Huge thank you to the Center for Free Enterprise for having us, we had such a wonderful time! #bitcoin #blockchain #regulation #government #surveillance
