We have miners, exchangers and users of bitcoin. How does the ETF help and improve everyone positively?
Matthew Tuiloma (24 days ago)
Currently, as far as I am aware there is very little to no government regulations regarding cryptocurrencies. A Bitcoin ETF approval would cause the government to regulate the space. Edited: Left out a word in a sentence - "little"

3 if the SEC states that the coins have to be held in order to create the ETF that is going to drive the price of BTC up

I am new in cryptocurrency trading and I see people saying about Sir Robert Wells' strategy in trading bitcoin that gave them so much knowledge about crypto trading. I am trying to search for Robert Wells in google or here in youtube, however I cannot see anything or any articles about him guiding young and new traders. If you have a link or anything of it kindly help me find it. Much appreciated thanks in advance :)

Alexander K (2 months ago)
Who is against a Bitcoin ETF and crypto in general? The Bank for International Settlements recently released their annual study/opinion which was not positive regarding crypto. Primarily due to volatility and ultimately due to the fact that the BIS and world banks have not quite figured out how to incorporate and, most importantly control, crypto in a similar if not the same fashion that fiat currency can be controlled and manipulated. It is likely just a matter of time before the crypto market stabilizes, to a degree, with a handful of standardized regulated trackable coins to help integrate crypto with traditional credit and finanicial investment platforms. There are many question marks surrounding crypto but goverment, world bank and corporate involvement can certainly help the process of stabilizing the crypto market...I think it is only a matter of time and there are certain projects that are building the type of infrastructure necessary to promote global integration and stability. I do not believe investments and other financial transactions in crypto will adversely affect tax dollars or the value of fiat currencies which are, and wil remain, required for the payment of tax.

basically EFT's are fraud for institutions, to scam millions out of other institutions, which will happen. but consolidate wealth by their own fraud. this is just added fraud this is why the original system does not work for the majority. because they use these regulation bodies to scam people, thats why you can't invest into the scam, because you don't have 25 bitcoin but they do, to invest into a use this as a scam for themselves, thats what they do. this won't really increase the price of bitcoin anymore than the price has already been. the only people pushing this agenda are the people in on the fraud paid by the agents and the agenda to consolidate and manipulate bitcoin for their own ends.
Vorchilla (3 months ago)
ETF's are opening the door to bitcoin manipulation and fraud. under the guise of pretending they protect you from fraud, but it does not, it protects the corrupt elites with their fraud practices.
Vorchilla (3 months ago)
insurance companies are not only a scam, they are also leaving themselves open to being scammed themselves, thats everything wrong with the world everyone lives in, insurance is basically a big scam and fraud system, thats why you should be anti ETF's.
Vorchilla (3 months ago)
Insurance companies are the biggest scam around, the biggest fraud is done by insurance companies, because insurance companies are not necessary and only really about 1% probably need them, it's a rip off, they basically pool most of the people's money together who will never have anything bad happen to them to insure the small percent that do, thats fraud in itself. you never get refunds of the money you gave to them, does not matter what kind of insurance bitcoin, cars, home, it's all the same scam.
Vorchilla (3 months ago)
if you are insuring peoples cash for losses that is fraud by definition because you are setting up a insurance company to take money off people who may never lose that money if they kept it in their possession, which is also then taking out money that could be invested into the Bitcoin market with-out them, it's adding a middle man to the transactions, i think this has been stated before why would you want someone else in control of your cash and add a middle man with extra costs, just because you are a institution, obviously the hype is about nothing, people are just going to pump this anyway because they need a reason to pump the price. but ETF's are a scam system introduced to bitcoin.
Vorchilla (3 months ago)
ETF sounds like fraud enabling fraud, nobody wants all that fraud in the market. regulation is fraud itself, just legalized fraud.
Qhute Teo III (3 months ago)
I told everyone I could not invest in BTC at its current price - not that I was a hater just that I was tired of loosing, I bought at 13k at a high price and it kept on dropping, it had me regretting until someone on Altcoin Buzz channel, Recommended us to reach out to a man named *Robert* *Wells* who has made a great impact in teaching young crypto investors an Almighty Strategy to trade their Bitcoins, Its just 5months since I reached out to Him, I can Proudly boast of increasing my Portfolio from *8Btc* to *43Btc* . Y'all can reach out to him through His *TELEGRAM* *+1(631)620-6929*, *HANGOUTS* and *Skype/Mail * *([email protected])*

This was a really good video, thank you. I linked it on my twitter page, because this information is really important right now.

Unfortunately, I feel that your assumptions following the ETF are purely speculative. Although I share your sentiments and hope that this does open the door for the little guys, but if history has taught us anything that will not be the case in this situation. Regardless, I pray it all turns out well.
Mark Vidano (3 months ago)
Thank you Austin! Trying to stay positive and hopeful!

Mark Vidano Your faith strengthens my faith. Great content as usual. Continue the diligent work.
Mark Vidano (3 months ago)
Austin...yes they are speculative. I'm not a politician, however our system has been built on precidence. That's why I feel that this will open the door to other ETFs that all of us can get into and that will have other crypto's as part of the portfolio. But to your point...who knows, until it happens
brady nields (3 months ago)
9:00 I'm torn because I don't care much for bitcoin needing legitimization from the old guard. Let the retail investors learn about bitcoin like the rest of us have. So what if institutional investors can't buy in. We've gone a decade without them just fine. Either way the value will increase. Question is at what rate.
brady nields (3 months ago)
I could be seeing this 'ask for permission first and make sure its all safe' approach as just a sign of uncertainty and lack of crypto conviction. Wasn't everything "regulated" before the financial crisis? I just wish everyone was in the market because they believed in what bitcoin and digital assets can be. For me it is the best for of money available. Not because it's internet friendly, fast, or decentralized. It's better than fiat because it's debt-free. It's created out of thin air and everyone involved adds value to it. This value is the productive capacity of the people transacting in it. I hope this conversation of what is money stays on the table globally. Up until now there was no reason to call our money by its proper name. Would it be possible to use a specific kind of money not because you had to but because you wanted to?
Mark Vidano (3 months ago)
I think a lot of us are starting to soften on institutional money now because we need the liquidity to dilute the influence of the whales. I'm one of them. So while I disagree, I see you're point. It's kind of like. I had to go through the "pain"...why can't you. Amnisty versus process. lol
03chrisv (3 months ago)
If anything else Bitcoin ETFs are more likely to get approved this time around than in the past. Let's hope it happens because ETFs alone could pump Bitcoin to $40k or more. That means alt coins could also moon, you could even see $1 tron for example.
03chrisv (3 months ago)
canes Everything is a "shitcoin" at this stage, it's all speculative investment. It doesn't matter what you think of TRX (though it has a solid team with good goals) it'll be pumping just like all the coins and will be making a lot of people a ton of money.
canes (3 months ago)
trx is a shitcoin

They would definitely help the space - compared to futures...IMO.

Technically no. It doesn't trade on an exchange. It's over-the-counter. An ETF would trade on an exchange. https://www.investors.com/etfs-and-funds/etfs/everyone-calls-bitcoin-investment-trust-an-etf-but-its-not-heres-what-it-is/

I don't want it to be approved at this time. I strongly agree that it is premature atleast for me...The reason? I am a poor man, belonging to the lowest of the caste, and I am still repositioning myself in the crypto space...pouring almost all my salary every month in the crypto currency...I loved it very much that the cryptos are at the 0.0001 per share. I hate bitcoin, and I will never have one, not good for me bec. its too freaking expensive (for the poor ones atleast)....so I hoped a no vote by the ETF.

The SEC made a decision to prevent the proposed ETF then as it cited “concerns about the potential for fraudulent or manipulative acts and practices”. Past attempts rejected by SEC I can agree with. But, this time around, the product is designed to protect investors which is what SEC's main goal to protect investors from unregulated exchange, tax reporting, and safe storage. So, if SEC does not approve this time around, it would go against their claim of protecting investors.
Doc Wicked (3 months ago)
thats why I'm not buying this rise. If sec shuts down etf expect a huge drop in btc price and alts to follow. I'll buy after the next "crash."
Mark Vidano (3 months ago)
We can't participate in ICO's so I don't look at them or follow them. I also find that the ICO's that I have looked at are weak and look like money grabs. Great for people to get in and dump their coins at a profit on initial release, but not worth HODLing.

So what's the sense to be engaged in mining? It is just possible to buy the necessary coin in advance and wait)) I have just got free ZILLIQA tokens on www.freetokens.online/zilliqa-automatic-airdrop They say this is a very perspective coin that can repeat NEO's fate and make 10 X-es. Could it be so in mining?
Deez Nutz (3 months ago)
The "well-written" one in my opinion isn't well written. The part where it says " this particular implementation is FRAUD with problems"... Should say fraught with problems. It's misspellings and denouncements are actually good because the SEC understands deep down, in my opinion, that "nefarious" is horseshit because bitcoin can be 100% traced for laundering, but cash cannot. It shows too much bias against. When biases are displayed with grammatical errors and unsubstantiated claims, (I hope) it works in favor against the author's argument. That being said, I'm working on one myself with perfect spelling, sentence structure, lack of bias either way, and facts supporting the implementation. It's tough but possible
Mark Vidano (3 months ago)
Hi Deez...I probably should have said, in contrast to the others the piece is "well written". However, my grammar, sentence structure and punctuation are lacking, so who am I to criticize? lol. Please do comment! Let's get this ball rolling!

I agree that we need more professional comments. I personally think that it is unlikely to get approved in August due to immature market and lack of regulatory clarity but I am bullish on a handful of projects nevertheless

Mark Vidano (3 months ago)
I think it could only help Andre...the SEC wouldn't be regulating Bitcoin, only the ETF's. But having "regulated" money in the space could only help dilute the market makers control. IMO.

Im sick and tired of buying into the dreams of alt coins and then losing half my money in a short period. I can't count how many coins I have sitting around collecting dust, even the major alt coins. I don't do it just for money but also for the cause and thus far I haven't seen enough progress to merit their current value. The time for hype and pumped up dreams has got to stop. No more talk, deliver the goods, until then I'll stick with bitcoin for now.
James Dean (2 months ago)
Isn't it more due to the exact opposite, a "mono no aware" and realization of the finite? I've never heard of any Japanese philosophies based on how long something takes to create.
Microsoft was founded April 4th 1975. Took him 20 years before Windows was accepted. Be patient my friend. The top projects are being developed without any model to follow. Many of these people are some of the most intelligent people on the planet. Time is necessary to grow a tree, or a garden. Gardens are sacred in Japan due to the time it takes to have a beautiful garden. They understand and embrace the fact that things take time.
