KEEP AN EYE ON CRYPTO........BITCOIN OVER $10K

#41
What are you thoughts about the government or countries creating their own crypto coin to be used.
Someday these will matter. I'm not looking at this from the perspective of buy BTC now and wait 20-30 years to sell. I think BTC and the others should be purely a trading vehicle and largely have treated them as such putting in some money into offshores when I think prices are relatively high and then pulling money out of books into my wallet when prices are low.

true......... A country that has it's own crypto would be centralized and against the idea of bitcoin. Decentralized cryptos are best. Bitcoin wanted to keep the middle man out.

good points. US doesn't control crypto market.



you are right but they control the people with the laws .. you will see regulation coming very soon with crypto... The IRS will be putting it on the tax forms and trump will be putting in regulation before he gets out at the treasury dept

china already beta testing it... they will force the US to do it to keep pace.. They say it will happen in the US quicker than we think. About 5 years turning to digital coins.

Its already a law, just a matter of how much they want to enforce it. If you sell it for a gain you are required to pay tax on it like any other investment. If you hold it in an offshore account where they are not reporting your gains/losses to the IRS, then that's an offshore investment account and if you don't report it to the IRS its subject to forfeiture anyways. There is really nothing new going on here.

they are only asking did you buy or sell etc on 2021 forms.... yes you are required to pay but not enforcing yet... 2021 they will start setting the trap by asking

ETH is the way to go now that there's ETH2 which is a big improvement. XRP is nice for a banking system which is centralized. I bought XRP day one, sold most and can't find wallets where I still have some.

If you like something less volatile ..you can move to Ameritrade


Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC)
Grayscale Ethereum Trust (ETHE)



These places buy a lot of crypto and know a lot about it.

China already started their own digital currency. It is in the trial stage where they gave out free money to some of it's people to test it... The us banks like chase will be coming out with their own coins... first you will probably see Facebook's coins come out ... it was called Libra... changed name to Diem and will be dollar - pegged.

bitcoin is the future.

banks making their own coins is a joke.

but is someone going to have multiple coins based on what different stores take? no

bitcoin to a MILLION!
