Worth keeping an eye on....

Reckon your ICO tokens aren't securities? The SEC chair says they likely are



Clayton struck out at the idea of an ICO avoiding security laws simply because the traditional ledger is replaced by a blockchain entry.

A change in the structure of a securities offering does not change the fundamental point that when a security is being offered, our securities laws must be followed," Clayton wrote in a statement.
"By and large, the structures of initial coin offerings that I have seen promoted involve the offer and sale of securities and directly implicate the securities registration requirements and other investor protection provisions of our federal securities laws."

"Generally speaking, these laws provide that investors deserve to know what they are investing in and the relevant risks involved."

Clayton warned "Main Street" investors that if they participate in any coin offerings, they go in with their eyes open, and be aware that no ICOs have registered with the SEC.

It's the Wild West out there right now...but the threat (/reality) of government regulation is the existential threat that will take the air out of this bubble.

The bubble will burst for 95% of coins. But those that survive will IMO make it very very big.

first ever German ICO - today

https://ico.savedroid.com

Not sure if anyone is interested, but if you like Crypto coins, this could be some good action. 100 coins = 1 euro.

the app already has 100k downloads, processes millions of transactions and looks like it could be a winner. The company aim to take the pain out of crypto by using an app which does the heavy lifting for you. No need to register with exchanges, get wallets set up etc.

The problem is that almost by definition, they can't.

The market is having a hard time wrapping it's head around this, but the crypto currencies have a fundamental problem: you can either be a currency (dollars/euros/etc.) or an investment (equities, etc.) but it's very very hard to be both (gold bullion). The problem with the cryptos is that their value is purported to be in the transactional advantages that they have as a currency (a medium of exchange), but as long as their value is increasing on par with an investment, they're too valuable to use to actually settle a transaction.

Inflation is one of the reasons that M1 functions as a currency - people actually don't want to hold the asset - they would rather exchange it for something of physical or investment value.
