  1. It's true that South America has joke currencies that make crypto appealing. Argentina being a prime example. The government there uses the local currency to steal from the population.
  2. Or the day you got excited about 0.027% of the world's economy allowing Bitcoin to be used, just not as a replacement for the Dollar. Only if a seller is willing to accept it. So legal tender as much as a sack of potatoes is legal tender.
  3. Is that the day 20% of the world's economy banned Bitcoin?
  4. Ireland won't be leaving the EU and any implication by desperate Brexiteers that it may happen is just that - desperation.
  5. https://www.coindesk.com/el-salvador-residents-are-split-on-bitcoin-adoption-bill Isaac is also concerned about the crypto community’s enthusiasm surrounding Bukele and El Salvador. For instance, some crypto influencers and firms have been tweeting about moving to El Salvador, tagging luxurious villas and beaches, along with Bukele himself. “My objections to this is, why do all these crypto enthusiasts have so much hype for this guy? Aren’t crypto people against Big Government, big regulations, taxation? It seems that they don’t have a problem with a wannabe tyrant as long as he supports crypto,” Isaac said
  6. Indeed but they tried their best to prevent in the grove/cumming thrift of public funds case https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2021/jun/09/covid-contract-for-firm-run-by-cummings-friends-was-unlawful-judge-rules Question are the thieves who gave our money away going to face jail time for this and the many far bigger crimes? we will see.
  7. It's not as if we can take our government to court or stop them robbing tax payers because they now control the courts. I don't know what other countries do and find it remarkable that you find theft on that scale ok because you think everyone is at it.
  8. So giving 500millon to two men in zero income compamy and no relevant experience with no competitive tending is perfectly OK because, maybe, just maybe some other government did it?
  9. Given that the government has stolen hundreds of billions to give to their mates since leaving the EU I'd say its a very accurate belief.
  10. And you wingnuts said China would never ban cryptocurrency Who said lightning would never happen?
  11. More bull sheet. Its an app that may or may not use the lighning network.. you have to hand over your BTC to Strike.
  12. They don't have a currency so use the US dollar. Nobody will actually use BTC for anything, its transmit fee is almost a days wage. This is a publicity stunt to stick it to the USA.
  13. With the previso that Chartists are viewed as snake oil salesmen talking their finest bolloxs.
  14. I have no idea what the tweet was about. Could you summarise?
  15. You are pushing a dead end obsolete tech like BTC and you call me a dinosaur? its 2021 not 2013
  16. This is Money: A third of Britons would consider cryptocurrency like bitcoin if it was regulated. Marcus Hughes, Coinbase's managing director for Europe, said of the findings: 'It is essential for us to understand why some consumers remain reticent to engage with crypto so that we can help to demystify the space and build their trust. 'It is unsurprising that a perceived lack of regulation around cryptocurrencies unsettles some people.' Currently, only four cryptocurrency exchanges are fully registered with the FCA. https://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/investing/article-9639949/A-Britons-consider-cryptocurrency-like-bitcoin-regulated.html
  17. Coal accounts for 1% of UK electricity production and zero in a couple of years.
  18. I'm pretty sure you would qualify for crypto investment based on your wealth and risk appetite.
  19. Isn't your investment in BTC actually a ETF on HL, as low risk as it could possibly be?
  20. If you use a bank account or credit card they can. The world banking system is pretty much controlled by the USA. If you want to deal with China, you can but don't complain if they rip you off. 99% of people will only deal with UK regulated businesses.
