Cryptopia always had a number-8 wire feel about it. That's why I only used it in as minimal fashion as possible. I'd go with incompetency.

So, what do we think? Extorted and killed? Or he somehow blew the money before it was worth so much and no one noticed, and for some reason he staged his suicide to look like an illness?

Sounds like natural causes to me.

The patient had a history of Crohn's disease and was on monoclonal antibody therapy (targeted therapy used to treat colon cancer) every 8th week.

The doctors' team treating him reportedly diagnosed him with a case of septic shock, perforation peritonitis, and intestinal obstruction, because of which his condition deteriorated suddenly on December 9.

Oh silly me, and hindsight.

Now has doubled again in the last few months

Yeah. I'm hoping I'll have some cash together in time for the next crash.

If you're wondering why we're having a down day today, look no further than this gay nerd shit happening in Sydney:

It's because someone dumped US$10 million of BTC on Bitfinex.

EY has a team of 200 developers working on new protocol Nightfall that will run on public Ethereum blockchain and be published to Github in May 2019.

Supplychain, food provenance, transaction tracking protocol using zk-snarks.

Open source, public blockchain, and 200 developers means EY is putting serious investment into this. This is new ground for such a huge international accounting firm.

New ground for Ethereum too. Super bullish.

BTC over $9000NZD again.

A slow recovery?

I'm not in any hurry.

Hope those of you who wanted in have been dollar cost averaging! Timing the market is hard, putting in lunch money is easy.

You would have doubled your investment if you put money in in December 2018

Congress Rep. Brad Sherman calls for the ban of all cryptocurrency
https://youtu.be/Cnz2oo8MRas

Here it is. Brad Sherman wants cryptocurrency banned because:
- US and FED will no longer be able to keep the world pinned to the USD
- US can no longer conduct financial terrorism against Venezuela, Iran, Syria, et al
- US can no longer collect taxes effectively
- US can no longer invade sovereign nations on inflated USD

Sounds like a good reason to ban USD to me.

Bit different from the last one. Ethereum led the last jump, then Bitcoin followed along with public hype. Right now it's Bitcoin leading, despite a stark lack of any improvements to the tech, at least that I know of.

All the while Ethereum's development continues at a steady pace.

My prediction is a quick peak then a mild, extended slump. Further frothiness for the year. The next BIG peak will be 2020, especially with interest around Ethereum going PoS. Where the slump that follows ends will be what's interesting.

But who knows what noise might get the market hyped up. A slow news day, some story about someone making money doing something remotely useful with crypto, climbing value. Most people are still naive to the pain of riding the wave.

I saw the video of BTC going to $10M in today's dollars. Based on global debt, fiat currencies going to zero, and BTC being the placeholder.

Given the latest peak and slight slump, I'm happy with my holdings, but if it drops much more than now, I'll just buy more, ready for the next move up. I don't see cryptos going away anytime soon.

If you're trading crypto, it matters. If you're HODLing, the short term doesn't matter (unless it goes to zero).

2040 or whenever the limit is reached is when things REALLY matter, because that's when it's a "stable" system.

Hopefully there will be better, more efficient cryptos in 2040 and the likes of Bitcoin and Eth will be long-forgotten.

lol, you're so bitter Ajax. Ethereum is going to be more efficient by next year, to be replaced by the next version of Ethereum.

I'm very optimistic about crypto as a concept. However, the current generation of cryptos is complete dogshit.

My money is on someone in the thick of it who spotted a vulnerability and exploited it. Sounds like business was out of control, plenty of important shit no one was on top of.

But it seems all parties had motive and opportunity to pull off the rip. Investigators must have their hands full.

Inland Revenue weighs in on crypto (page 3)

Summary: If you get paid in crypto, you still need to pay PAYE on your wages as though you were getting paid in NZD, at a rate determined by a valid exchange (one which operates in accordance with laws such as know your customer) - a NZ based exchange will do just fine.

The parallel they draw is that crypto is like property, so FBT applies. Stable coins can be treated as money, pay your tax G.

I expect that the usual trading vs investing definitions come into play around gains made in crypto and whether they are taxable. (Intent when purchasing, and frequency of buying/selling, etc)
