The Largest Cryptocurrency Exchange Platform Bittrex Restricts the Rules of Service 205

Quite soon, and more specifically, starting from the 9th of March, 2018, the largest cryptocurrency exchange platform Bittrex will introduce the new rules for providing services to its customers. Terms of service will be supplemented by two new items.

First of all, people who have not reached adulthood will not be allowed to become the clients of the company. The second paragraph states that access to the services of the site will be strictly limited to the people located in the territory of countries, or individual territories, concerning which the appropriate sanctions of the US government have been taken.

“You may not use the Services if you are located in, or a citizen or resident of any state, country, territory or other jurisdiction that is embargoed by the United States or where your use of the Services would be illegal or otherwise violate any applicable law”  —  the cryptocurrency exchange testifies.

In addition, now the platform administration has the right to refuse to provide services to the customers as they see fit, including blocking the clients’ access to their accounts.

Buterin, Winklevoss and Others: The Future of the Digital Currency World According to Major Crypto Personalities 1211

experts opinions on crypto

The crypto world has entered the new stage of its development, it has always been volatile, but these couple of weeks have been absolutely crazy: coins are jumping up and down, Bitcoin ETF is on its way, blockchain is taking over the world.

No doubt, crypto specialists and financial experts have a lot to say. Today we came up with a compilation of sayings from the stars of the cryptocurrency universe that we found particularly interesting and important.

The CEO of the crypto exchange Gemini, Tyler Winklevoss believes that the acceptance of cryptocurrency in the world as a means of payment equal to fiat will not happen in the next couple of years:

The vast majority of Wall Street firms are still not participating in the cryptocurrency market, which remains primarily a retail-driven market. This will change over time, but it will take time.

Pantera Capital’s CEO is way more optimistic on this issue. He sees great potential in the blockchain technology, and digital coins, according to him, are “superior form of currency.

Ethereum’s founder Vitalik Buterin wants cryptocurrencies to become more user-friendly and common in the everyday life. He also thinks it may become possible only in case the proper regulatory framework for crypto is developed by the state governments.

I want to be able to walk into a convenience store, get a card and pay a small fee to start using Bitcoin Cash,” he said.

The last, but certainly not least, is the CEO of BitMEX, Arthur Hayes, who has some serious doubts concerning Ethereum. According to his calculations, the price of the world’s #2 coin will drop lower than $100.

It is this moment,” he added, “that Ether goes from a 3-digit to a 2-digit shitcoin.

Although we are sure that experts know what they are talking about, the crypto world is way too unpredictable. We can only wait and see whether the abovementioned predictions turn out to be true or not.

Andreas Antonopoulos Criticized Bitcoin ETF 732

opinion on bitcoin etf

The well-known author of books about Bitcoin and the founder of his own Bitcoin-business Andreas Antonopoulos published a Youtube video where he expressed his opinion about Bitcoin ETF and explained why they cause so much sensation.

I’m going to burst your bubble. I know a lot of people really want to see an ETF happen because ‘too the moon’ and ‘lambos’ and all that. I think it’s a terrible idea. I still think it’s going to happen… I’m actually against ETFs,” he said.

Antonopoulos explained that he understands why many people are so impressed by the idea of Bitcoin ETF:

Everybody’s so excited about ETFs because what we’ve seen in other markets is that when an ETF becomes available—as we saw in gold—the price really increases dramatically as suddenly that commodity becomes available to a lot more investors and these investors pile on. But the other side of it is that there’s always these claims that the commodities markets are heavily manipulated and opening up these exchange-traded instruments only increases the ability of institutional investors to manipulate—especially [in the case of] large market makers—the prices of commodities, not just in the markets where it’s traded as an ETF but more broadly,” he clarified.


We remind you that the SEC postponed the decision upon Bitcoin ETF until September.

musk wants to make tesla private

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has sent Tesla Inc. a request concerning its executive director Elon Musk and his messages on Twitter about the plans to privatize the company, reports The New York Times.

The regulator requests information from each of the Tesla directors . The Commission is interested in whether Mask had any actual grounds for such statements, and the SEC intends to find out why such important information was provided to them publicly, via the social network.

Last week, the directors were outraged when the head of Tesla wrote details of the deal to transfer Tesla from a publicly traded company to a private company.

The representatives of Tesla were sure that Elon Musk was “out of control” and asked him to stop discussing the situation in the company on Twitter. Nevertheless, Mask continued to publish messages on the social network, publicly revealing the details of the company’s strategy and issuing “dubious” information.

We remind you that Twitter has recently begun blocking accounts containing the name of Elon Musk.
