    Looks like a bit of both to be honest.

    Look at how this shitcoin tanked. Oh wait it’s 1st republic bank. I hope this contagion in the banking system is limited when I have time to try to read up on it seems like arguments for both ways have merit. AB996044-839E-4C47-B47F-173708517C6E.jpeg

    In 2010 you couldn’t give Bitcoin away that 10,000 Bitcoin the guy bought two pizzas with would be 260million today.

    Any info on how much BTC this guy still holds, or did he spend it all on pizza and matching wallpaper and table cloths?

    There have been follow ups with him. He actually bought numerous pizzas back in the early years. I think he estimated 100,000 Bitcoin on pizza. By his tone in past articles I didn’t get the impression he held long term. But in 2010 Bitcoin had no value and his crystal ball was probably broken.

    He sure wins the medal for "most money spent on pizzas"

    Also, someone had to demonstrate that BTC could be traded for goods and services. He did everyone a service with that extremely expensive pizza!

    My sister invested in Bitcoin back in 2018 I believe. Anyways, it worked out well for her. However, it's unregulated and so many people are jumping in just to scam people. I hate it when celebrities indorse certain coins. 99% of the time, they're promoting "pump and dump" coins.

    Rather big news, though not at all unexpected by those scratching beneath the surface. Oh, and this tweet may be the most (Social) Media-savvy thing that I've ever seen produced by an American government agency.

    That is downright hilarious, I’ve been in startups where I’ve heard exactly that kind of thing from C-level execs so I don’t doubt it at all lol

    Genslar going after coinbase as well which will impact more US holders. I did try opening an account on binance a few years ago as they carry every shit coin you can think of (years ago I did play with shitcoins) but they are blocked in my state. Can’t say I was that upset I just said “oh well”.

    It is a little strange the SEC keeps moving the goalposts telling them to register with the SEC and then saying they can’t register so it’s quite a conundrum. Just gotta see how it shakes out. I was reading a bit about the coinbase charges and arguments it sounds messy.

    Yes, but no matter where one lives, it would be beyond idiotic to hold any assets in Binance, given the revised TOS.
