Those statements are right on. Good analogies.

What about a Florida Oranges, Shellfish, or Crawfish ICO? What about Ginger or Ginseng? Export market, primarily Asia. A 20/40 TEU container would work great.

We're smart guys and the code is freely available. We could probably launch one for $10-$15K, and buy futures from suppliers.

Why is BTC up $400 today? I just woke up.

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin says libra backers dropped out because the project is ‘not ready’ to meet regulatory standards

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says he told libra representatives he would take action if the cryptocurrency didn’t meet regulatory standards.

Mnuchin tells CNBC he thinks some libra backers “realized that they’re not ready, they’re not up to par.”

Great news for Bitcoin!

Crypto is a private person-to-person currency. It is free from government control or intervention. Drug trafficers use $100 USD for their transactions, Bitcoin is not a viable option for them.

Too bad Zuckerberg.

+1 Mnuchin.

Crypto is still so weird/dysfunctional.
Check in on cypto: oh nice, I'm up a bunch on the day.
.....then I look at that absolute piece of garbage BSV: up over 100%, into 4th place by marketcap...on literally nothing because it's a scam coin by an idiot claiming to be Satoshi.

<close my web browser in disgust and try and ignore crypto the rest of the day>

That has been Warren's position for years. It's also his position that he doesn't invest in things he doesn't understand, and he admittedly doesn't understand Bitcoin. Investing in things he does understand has profited Berkshire Hathaway very well.

Buffet could be a massive holder of bitcoin. Be stockpiling, and then drop a bombshell that he is “investing in bitcoin” and then all the sheep run off to buy some...thus increasing the value of his stockpile....

Don’t believe anyone.
