Why South Korea Had to Ban Crypto ICOs and Risk Losing Multi-Billion Dollar Opportunities

This week, the government of South Korea officially decided to maintain its existing blanket ban on domestic initial coin offerings (ICO) in a move that could benefit other major crypto markets in Asia. On Friday, the virtual currency task force of the Office for Government Policy Coordination released a comprehensive report on the ICO industry. Local financial authorities stated that the government considers the ICO model to be a high-risk investment vehicle in many areas. As such, the government will continue to reinforce a ban on domestic crypto token sales. It’s Not Just Domestic ICOs, Foreign Crypto Firms Could be

Why i still hold my Bitcoin after losing around 1.9 Million Dollars

Throwaway for obvious reasons.

I accumulated Bitcoin from early 2013 till 2017 and all bought and traded around to 100 Bitcoins.

Did a lot of Crypto Trading in that timeframe, specially on btc-e.com, a Russian crypto gambling and trading site which was seized by the US Government.

Thankfully I had a good nose and traded all LTC I bought there to BTC and send it to myself 2 weeks before the site was shut down. At the time that was around 17 Bitcoins. Never leave your coins in an exchange.

Then 2017 came and i was a financial idiot at the time. Well after trading some more real money for some Coins I had a + of 2.350 Million Dollars.

And I didn’t sell anything but my investment of around 90k.

Now I think It was a stupid move. One of my main causes then was the Tax money I owned in some trades and I would have payed around 400k+ in Taxes which I would have liked to avoid. Maybe you can guess the country. Still – it was retarded and I know it. On the other hand, If I always had done everything from the book I would have never had such an uprising.

It also was the 5th or 6th time I had witnessed a crash. Same business as usual I thought, money can get blurry even if it´s in this magnitude.

Well, to now. January of 2019. I still have around 400.000 Dollars in Crypto, payed my taxes I owned form Crypto and iam very fortuned in life in general, so I guess I don´t mind as much as I should.

Now why do I still hold?

After seeing the manpower that was poured into Bitcoin and Blockchain development, the Education that was offered and the overall praise of Bitcoin in general – I want to hold.

I believe with the next halving in May 2020, the real Bullrun will come if the Stars align. When some form of governmental recognition and an easy to use application for buying is in place till then, we will see a hopefully meteoric rise. If average joe can buy Bitcoin easy with an App and the Media picks up the hype.

On the other hand, maybe the damage is done and no one cares anymore. But Bitcoin is still the same it was one or two or ten years ago.

Nothing changed, it just got better.

Just my story, you can make of it what you like.

-EDIT-

I didn´t expect to log on this account anymore but damn, you guys are amazing. Thanks for the mature and kinds words.

And thanks for the 6000 Satoshis, you guys are crazy.
