  • Bitfinex and Tether general counsel Stuart Hoegner says a previous filing by the New York Attorney General's office claiming that Empire State residents used the companies' platforms for far longer than previously stated "contain a number of inaccurate and misleading assertions." According to Hoegner, some documents presented as evidence "make clear that we would only do business with a foreign entity having no presence in New York," while other documents describing Bitfinex customers based out of New York were actually about "foreign eligible contract participants."
  • Binance Launchpad announces WINK IEO, a trustless, permissionless and high-performance gaming platform. There will be a maximum of 200,000 winning lottery tickets. After the token sale, WIN tokens will be issued on Binance Chain, thus becoming a BEP2 asset.

Earlier this year, the AlipayHK wallet extended its services from Hong Kong to cities in the Greater Bay Area, including Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

Perspective.... 21 million coins total. 17 million currently minted. 4.5 million lost. Of the remainder estimated 60% or more are being hodled and are off the market. Of 7 billion people, about 2% have transacted in Bitcoin.

TRON Foundation
TRON Foundation announces postponement of Warren Buffett lunch, press conferences after founder Justin Sun falls ill with kidney stones. Parties agreed to reschedule at a later date.

Replying to@Tronfoundation
Crypto never ceases to make me laugh. When your crypto dumps by 8% because of a lunch postponement you're owning the wrong fucking crypto.


Global markets are gearing up towards an important FOMC meeting next Wednesday - pricing in a 100% probability of a rate cut: 77.5% 25bps cut, 22.5% 50bps cut.

This will have implications for gold and possibly bitcoin - heavily discussed at the moment as global sovereign yields go negative

The volatility of ether relative to bitcoin is near historical lows

It's expiry week: CME 15,765 BTC equivalent futures to expire OKEX 6,238 BTC futures DERIBIT 15k BTC options


1/ #Bitfinex & #Tether systematically take apart the NYAG's latest claims: -ECPs are foreign entities -No personal or subject matter jurisdiction -No NY customer has suffered -Tether has never had a problem with redemptions. Period -USDT has not been proven to be a commodity

2/ The ECPs are all foreign entities: "Bitfinex and Tether do not transact with any New York ECPs. All references to New York-based trading or virtual currency firms … refer to foreign entities"

3/ No NY customer has been identified by the OAG as having suffered any loss or harm from the CryptoCapital problems or the Bitfinex/Tether loan transaction

4/ USDT redemptions have never been a problem "The loan repayment is evidence that Bitfinex is financially healthy...and that OAG's alleged concern over the "backing" of tether is unfounded. ... Tether has had no difficulty redeeming tether holders at par-not once, not ever."

5/ Bitfinex goes to great lengths to exclude US customers “ ... a concern about a highly uncertain regulatory environment ...This proceeding is a perfect example of what the Companies, at the cost of losing significant potential business, had intentionally tried to avoid. "

6/ Bitfinex does not target US customers "The Companies do not advertise or market to individuals or entities in the United States or New York.” “…vendor relationships have nothing to do with the OAG’s allegations…”

7/ Bitfinex has worked diligently to comply with the courts discovery order “Respondents in fact produced a significant amount of data and documents related to unverified users of the Bitfinex platform ... 70k pages of documents ... across 10 different communications platforms”

8/ The OAG tries to throw everything at the wall in the hope that something sticks The company's business does not relate to the secondary market trading of USDT on other platforms Other virtual tokens trading on Bitfinex are not related to the 354 order and are not customers

9/ $LEO has nothing to do with the US. Period

$BTC If I had to pick two places to close shorts///long it would be the two green areas below. S1: $9800 S2: $8200 Anything else is in no shape or form significant enough to me to buy in a (short-term) bear trend.

The difference between $ETH now vs. March 2016: 1. ~$500m locked in DeFi 2. Legit ETH 2.0 progress 3. Resolved identity crisis (PSoV) 4. Institutional adoption coming (e.g. futures) 5. Quiet UX improvements for dapps 6. L2 progress 7. Community maturation The future is bright.


Bitcoiners trying to spin a fake narrative. Bulgarian authorities seemingly hold 200K bitcoin seized from criminals. Bulgaria does not hold bitcoin "reserves". Law enforcement bodies =/ Central bank…

The difference is huge. - law enforcememt stuck with seized property Vs - acquisition of bitcoin by central bank for monetary policy reasons If true, liikely a business opportunity for someone to help Bulgaria offload those bitcoins.


Reading through the latest Ethereum Core Dev call notes and it appears that EIP-2025 is being seriously considered as an EIP for Istanbul. EIP-2025 adds 0.044 ETH per block for 3,100,000 blocks to go to a dev fund. That’s 136,400 ETH. Absolutely absurd! This cannot happen.

Call notes:… EIP:…
