I want to start out by saying I love you guys and have been watching for a long time. But it's getting harder and harder.

Look, Every time you two, who are admitted holders of bitcoin, say that "all ICOs are scams", you leave yourselves open to a libel/defamation lawsuit someday. You are accusing every one of these companies of fraud. Some are scams, for sure. But some are legitimate companies with legitimate tokens/coins and all they are trying to do is innovate. By lumping them all together and accusing them of fraud, you may be lowering the market cap of that company's token. It can be argued (true or false) that your motivation to knowingly lie (you know ALL of these companies aren't involved in fraud) is to increase the value of the bitcoin you hold by falsely (at least in some cases) disparaging the reputation of a legitimate business, and helping to slosh capital from the market cap of that coin/token to the one you hold. I'm not saying you'd lose a case like this, I'm just saying there is enough to bring a suit.

Can't you guys just be more informed or more specific? Your opinions are largely uninformed when it comes to specific tokens. If you know of a scam coin, call it out and say why. That's fine. But this generalizing is bad for innovation and bad for your channel's credibility and I think it's bad for the crypto space in general. Most ICOs will fail. They will fail because most businesses fail. But a scam or fraud are very specific things and accusing a company of that (or ALL companies in this case) is a very serious legal accusation. If you want to be a legitimate news outlet… act legitimate. Be accurate or don't say anything at all.

Or just take "crypto" out of your name and be the World Bitcoin Network and stop talking about ICOs all together.

If any Canadians are wondering what domestic exchange to use to buy Bitcoin, Ethereum & Litecoin, try this: https://www.quadrigacx.com/?ref=0908rz10800xd4tr2jd330le

Quadriga CX is Canada's longest running cryptocurrency exchange and since it's inception, has never been hacked or compromised. They also have an active pressence on the subreddit /bitcoinCA should you need to get in contact with them.

If you decide to use my referral address, I'd like to thank you for taking the time to sign up! Whatever little commission I get is greatly appreciated!

Was that a Texas instruments Ti99 I saw in the glass cabinet?? I have one of those still!

william mckeever says:

If a new ETF comes online for Bitcoin and you as an investor can't take delivery of Bitcoin it probably means that the fund is leasing the coin or doesn't have first claim against the coin which means you are not buying the coin.

Again if you don't hold the coin you don't own the coin.

william mckeever says:

VER just said infrastructure being buiit up around bcash. GOOD! Now holders of bcash who could not.access their fake coin to sell it… CAN.

william mckeever says:

ETF only good for Bitcoin if the Fund actually buys Bitcoin. Synthetic coin doesn't help at all and could actually be used to control/manipulate the price of Bitcoin.

Kay C says:

This is all normal, its just part of the actual growth of Bitcoin, first it;s left alone cause it's chap then everyone wants it then governments wants to infest it and mess it all up, and then US…WE and a movement move Bitcoin to where it needs to be, after all said and done, Bitcoin Wins and the new Evolution of Money can settle in. Couple years guys couple years. Just be patient.

So if s. Korea and potentially the usa ban cryptos, are even more countries going to follow suit? Are you optimistic about them?
