  1. Have you looked into EOS - that addresses all of thee and zero transaction fees. I thin this is going to be huge when it comes out of ICO
  2. If i were you i'd set the sell order for £99600 as they'll be a lot of people selling when it gets to triple digits!
  3. Hope this isn't a thread hi-jack - but can anyone explain what MyEtherWallet is actually used for? I just don't see where it fits into the flow of things? I mean, if you buy coins/tokens from an exchange, then you can send those to your hardware wallet (or ETH wallet if the tokens are ERC20) then what's the point in registering them on MEW as well? Isn't that just another link in the chain - and anther potential hacker weak spot?
  4. the 15% stamp duty is if you bought a property as a corporation: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/stamp-duty-land-tax-corporate-bodies
  5. I too have considered this. I mean your standard tax to pay would be CGT @ 28%... which is better than higher rate income tax, but still. I guess it depends what you intend to buy. For a start if you wanted a house and could find a seller prepared to take BTC for it (and not an actual £ amount, but BTC written into the exchange contract) then you'd be in an interesting area tax wise My long term plan is to make a fortune (yeah yeah) then buy a house. If there isn't a reasonable tax cost then i'll do what the footballers etc do when they buy expensive properties. That is to buy an offshore company located in a place like the Seychelles or Batrs & Nevis where privacy is paramount. Put my money into that company, and the company then buys a UK property. Yes you'd get hammered for the new 15% stamp duty, but that's better than 28%... and of course the added bonus is that the property will never be counted toward IHT as you don't own it - you'd just leave 100% of the shares of the company to the person/persons in your will. If they then wanted to sell it they just put the company in the new owners name - no stamp duty there either
  6. IS there a good reference for upcoming ICOs and third-gen coins/token sales? So far i'm in EOS and Tezos - both of which have done rather well (EOS recommendation from Jeff Berwick TDV site). Tezos was DYOR
  7. Any yet despite 6.217 posts, you'll always be remembered for 'that one' in particular... - You know the one I mean ;-)
  8. DBs exposure to the derivatives market is some $75 trillion.. or about 8 times the size of the entire EU GDP... Gonna be tough to write a valid cheque to bail that sucker out... You know the episode of The Simpsons where Monty Burns suggests printing a trillion dollar note to clear the USA's debts... not looking so crazy now is it!
  9. exactly. If they call an election (or we manage to struggle on to 2020) then all it'll be is UKIP Vs 'everyone else'... assuming that 35% of the electorate (down from 52%) vote to leave the EU (i.e. have to vote UKIP) then we'll be looking at a UKIP PM and via an 'SNP style' landslide Frankly the chances of this happening increases the longer we stay in the EU - as overtime they do something stupid (crazy rules, forcing businesses to close, mass immigration, economic collapse of the Euro) then every MP who said "stay in the EU for safety" will lose at the ballot box. I predict a Cons/UKIP coalition - though hard to say which would be the junior partner in that scenario
  10. when it hits 17 million i'll take a look at it.
  11. Perhaps we make a new bank holiday called "Farage Day" ... do you think the lefty-types would refuse to take a free paid day off from work in protest?
  12. great stat - thanks yes, it's the 'per capita' bit that's the killer
  13. indeed, that's a great one thanks
  14. Can you guys (and girls) let me know what you think the worst economic excesses/failures of the Eu are e.g. Goldman Sachs cooking the books to let Greece in EU fraud and accounting (not signed off accounts for 20+ years? Is this true Deutsche Bank derivatives balance (potential for mega Lehman moment) Cameron paying the extra £1.7bn in 2015 after he said he wouldn't GDP > Debat ratios etc etc Anything else that leaps to mind?
  15. Anecdote: So I just got off the phone with my local MP. He's a decent man, though I didn't support him at the election. However we are working together to bring home the OUT vote. he was telling me that the Labour MPs who are returning to their offices after canvassing on the doorstep in their constituencies, are ashen faced, and know they're going to lose. Apparently some of them have spent all day canvassing and not found a single INNER... If we win this (and the MP thinks it's almost a definite) then it'll be thanks to the Labour heartlands! Good to hear from inside the Portcullis House eh??

    so place your bets on what scare stories come out next.... I wonder if they'll go 'nuclear' and get Her Maj involved?
  17. either that, or people had the chance to listen to Farage last night, and want to vote for Leave
  18. Not really no. Well maybe every US election (as that's pretty much a 50:50 thing) I want to agree with you - honesty I do, but I just don't think those who'd been wronged would be upset enough to actually do anything about it. Maybe other posters might have an opinion, or suggest an example to clarify
  19. the best result is a decent vote to LEAVE, but one that is then ignored by MPs... However I'd like to hope that the people would then rise up, but lets be honest - the people of the UK are pretty docile (apart from some very loud 'tutting' in church halls up ands down the country) There are people who are prepared to demonstrate but the anti-capapitalist scum crowd are (bizarrely) pro-EU... I'm not sure I can see the WI marching on Downing Street hurling pots of jam at the PM
  20. If the vote is OUT, then as TPTB have a 2 year window I think they'll crash the economy on purpose and then blame it on Brexit.. then (after a a few months) say to us "We told you this would happen, do you want to have another go?"
  21. He wasn't meeting his 'percentage of change' criteria that his EU paymasters expected, so he's been moved onto a different forum that doesn't consist of people who can actually add up. Probably some university ones I expect.
  22. True, but they need to have a NI number to work here, and post-brexit we can choose to only give them out to UK residents. Whilst levying large fines to any company that hires illegals
  23. Actually we can. We would have the right to return them to the last known safe country... most likely France What are the onion-sellers going to do then? Scare us with their white flags? Promise not to give the aircraft carrier back when it's our turn? You'd only need to do it to a few thousand for them to get the message
