"I think #Bitcoin sort of trades as 2/3 tech stock & 1/3 a store of value. But it's changing. In 5 years I think it'll at least be half or not more a store of value" This week @JanvanEck3 CEO of @VanEck_US joined @FintechFrank on The Scoop Listen now 🎧 theblockcrypto.com/post/1258…

#btc is digital gold IMO. We are just beginning to see more use cases. @matthew_sigel @gaborgurbacs @NGurushina @vaneck_us
If you are a developing country would you rather issue $1 billion of bonds based on your renewable energy reserves or take out a $1 billion loan from the World Bank?

This week: @vaneck_us launched a #bitcoin futures ETF trading as $XBTF. This comes shortly after the SEC rejected VanEck's Spot Bitcoin ETF that would directly track the digital currency. CEO @JanvanEck3 discussed the company's presence in this expanding space.

We got many questions on the implications of Taproot with regards to smart contract functionality. My take: while Taproot will give Bitcoin users some additional flexibility to build smart contracts, side chains will still be required for max programmability. For background...
#Taproot on #Bitcoin is activating soon! If you want to learn what Taproot is and how it benefits Bitcoin smart contracts and privacy, this is a great @BitcoinMagazine article from @AaronvanW on the matter. RT to help people learn. bitcoinmagazine.com/technica…

Sometimes light regulation can boost innovation. See my #stablecoin idea… @SenToomey
New idea: stablecoins. The IRS should stop taxing foreigners' (potential) income on stablecoins. (US mutual funds have income w/held and are foreigner-unfriendly.) Then, the SEC could regulate them as money market funds and supervise the collateral without killing the use case

I would like to thank @cameron and @tyler for kicking of the #Bitcoin spot ETF process 7.5 years ago (July of 2013). @GaryGensler @SECGov @HesterPeirce IMHO, your due diligence should be completed. Lets approve @vaneck_us Spot Bitcoin ETF. @JanvanEck3 @gaborgurbacs @JSeyff #HODL

We are disappointed in today’s update from the SEC declining approval of our physical bitcoin ETF. We believe that investors should be able to gain #BTC exposure through a regulated fund and that a non-futures ETF structure is the superior approach. @tyler @gaborgurbacs

Detach them from banks. Only need to make sure collateral is there. Otherwise, let them fly free and let crypto exchanges do AML. Like now.
