Calm down, this is an altcoin bump & dump day like we used to see for the past months … bitcoin surged a lot and altcoins are trying to make a comeback before the segwit drama kicks in .. that’s all
One of bitcoin’s most notorious bears still isn’t convinced bitcoin will work – even despite its record price run.
Before anyone rants about not keeping coins on exchanges during this time, I do understand that’s the safest, and clearest answer to all of this. However, that doesn’t give Coinbase, or any exchange, an excuse for not giving a very clear answer to this after plenty of time to evaluate this particular split. Coinbase in particular offers a vault service with the purpose of holding Bitcoin longterm, so for those specific customers, it’s not really sufficient to say to just remove your Bitcoin…
This is a new front in the power struggle and deserves to be met with an overwhelming early rejection. Let’s see what’s next on their agenda that we can also ignore. Honey badger don’t care.
If I am to convince a regulator that instead of ignoring bitcoin and letting there be an environment of uncertainty, it’s actually in their better interests to have a bitcoin-friendly policy, how would I sell it to them?
