  • Talked with a Hedge fund manager today, with interesting insights. Why we may be bullish soon.

    today i had an interesting client at work. We were chit chatting and i eventually on the subject of blockchain.. His eyes lit up. He mentioned immediately how his senior advisory board were trying to navigate blockchain, but they were quite risk averse so it was proving difficult. Look up the guy later on and it turned out he was a managing director of quite a large investment fund company that handle billions in index funds and pension funds. Also regular stocks. He was doing auditing, due diligence and anything else you can imagine including offshore investments. It seems that there is a lot of interest on the side lines for this even just as an investment still from traditional avenues. Lately with all the FUD it seems that it may not be the case, but this definitely changed my attitude and view fast. He can't be in isolation. we may be closer than we think to traditional investments getting in on this crypto currency train which would add insane kind of liquidity, even if only a small percentage of pension funds were allocated to it.

  • Not Everything You Don't Like is a Scam
    by /u/mimeticpeptide on March 24, 2018 at 3:37 pm

    I think a huge problem in this space is everyone calling the coin/token competing with the one they are invested in a "scam". All this does is hurt the general image of crypto making it seem like theres tons of scams in the space. Of course, there are scams in the space, but most of the top 100 coins that get called scams are not scams. This is an incredibly exciting new space with huge potential and interesting challenges that has captured the attention of thousands of developers around the world. There are lots of people that want to see what they can do with this new technology. We have no idea which coin or token will really be adopted one day, or which one will successfully scale to the number of transactions per second needed to support global adoption. Calling other coins scams because you want people to invest in your coin instead first of all doesnt work and second of all is bad for everyone. Focus on the good things that the devs of your coin of interest are doing instead. submitted by /u/mimeticpeptide [link] [comments […]

  • Hello /r/CryptoCurrency, this is Jared & Derek from the Digital Assets Coalition of America. We are a national group of lobbyists and crypto lovers fighting to instate like-kind transactions and lower capital gains. Join us for our AMA this Sunday at 1PM est!
    by /u/DigitalAssetsUSA on March 24, 2018 at 3:25 pm

    Before we were members of the Digital Assets Coalition of America (DAC), we watched as blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) grew from proof-of-concepts to the powerhouses of innovation that they are today. Digital assets and distributed applications are revolutionizing the way the world does business, manage data, assign and validate ownership, provide accountability, auditing, and more. Simply put, within a sensible regulatory climate, DLTs can fuel the American economy for generations to come. However, there’s an issue happening right now that we as a community must come together and resolve. The crypto community deals with an unacceptable lack of representation in the creation of the federal policies that regulate everything from ICO participation to tax policy. In response, we formed a coalition of innovators, strategists, lobbyists, and educators to ensure representation on the issues that affect us all. Through public education campaigns, congressional workshops, and face-to-face interaction with legislators, we’re educating the federal government on DLTs to promote a favorable regulatory climate, facilitate informed policymaking, and secure the USA’s position as a global leader in the digital asset arena. Our first policy objective is to instate crypto-to-crypto trades as like-kind transactions. With the passing of the new tax bill, like-kind transactions only apply exclusively to real estate exchanges. This change has resulted in an over-complicated reporting process that makes filing compliant taxes exceptionally difficult and inefficient. The new bill also opens the risk for traders and users to be hit with massive taxes that are potentially disproportionate with their true profits. Note: While we have accounting partners who worked under the interpretation that because cryptocurrency is treated as property for federal tax purposes, then U.S. Code § 1031 previously applied, this cannot be confirmed without specific guidance from the IRS. -- As always, trust your accountant(s). Secondly, we want to reduce the capital gains tax rate for both short and long-term digital asset holdings. With current policy, every time digital assets are used to make a purchase, or when digital assets are converted to fiat, high capital gains tax are assessed on any potentially derived profit. This financial burden disincentivizes spending crypto, acts as a barrier to adoption, and ultimately prevents crypto from ever benefiting the economy. Our team is composed of experts such as Stephani Scruggs, who led the resistance to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which resulted in nearly a dozen delayed Fast Track TPA votes and the ultimate demise of the TPA. Stephani has advised President Trump on international trade deals, currency manipulation, and the Chinese trade wars. She also has experience working closely with Congressional offices to strategize and develop international trade and economic policy, establishing her as a fountain of wisdom on Capitol Hill. Or Michael Bowen, an international trade expert, whose organization advised the Trump campaign on trade agreements. Michael has also advised Congress on economics, housing development, international trade, and currency manipulation. Over the course of Michael’s career, he has negotiated over $1 billion in capital market transactions and implemented the largest affordable housing development in Hawaiian history. Recently, we’ve on-boarded Frank McCarthy. After 20 years embedded in and advising on politics, media and policy making, as well as serving two House Transportation Committee Chairmen, Frank founded McCarthy Advanced Consulting (MAC). Frank uses his experience as a seasoned congressional staffer to run MAC, a nationally recognized lobbying firm that is known for helping unions fight above their weight class. We want to make sure you’re a part of this process. We want you to ask us questions during the AMA this Sunday (the 25th) at 1PM est, but in the meantime, we have a few for you! Do you know of any industry leaders that you would like us to reach out to? What regulatory policies affecting cryptocurrency would you like to see changed or put into law? Do you have a thorough understanding or access to the resources necessary to pay taxes associated with your cryptocurrency? What is your favorite cryptocurrency use-case? What websites or publications do you use to stay updated on cryptocurrency news? We look forward to seeing you Sunday at 1PM est! We'll be updating this post with the AMA link.
