Just another government partnership by VeChain.
Are you implying that "government partnerships" are a good thing (and/or a reason to be bullish on Vechain)?

If yes, I disagree with you entirely. The fundamental purpose of crypto, and the reason for its sequential bull runs (up until January 2018) was precisely a result of its detachment from the state. Cryptos latching on to government is not a reason to be bullish. If you think it is, I recommend you re-evaluate the reason you are participating in this revolution.

There was an article yesterday regarding regulations in Canada for exchanges.
They are moving in the space so expect less people moving towards using any crypto.

ya my understanding is all canadian exchanges have to report any transaction over 10k. they seem to be putting crypto in the same category as terrorist related laws, etc...

Yes. It is anything above 10k but also they need to verify their customers for amounts reaching $1k to allow them to operate under this law that is still in draft
Here is the article I was looking at after doing a re-search of it.

Now Is A Pretty Good Time To Buy Says Crypto Investor Living Back At Home With Parents

Image

A local cryptoprenuer has explained to The Advocate today why now is actually a great time to invest in digital currency.

The reasonably young man who has recently moved back into his parent’s house in Betoota Grove, talked our reporters through why the Cryptocurrency Market is ripe for the picking.

Jordan Fotherington (24), who used to live in a French Quarter share house until he blew the majority of his yearly income at the start of the year on an array of different crypto coins in a greed-addled spending spree, said that he wished he actually more money right now.

“Yeah, it’s a real shame I am a bit cash poor at the moment,” Fotherington said.

“Like asset wise, I have a portfolio that could be worth a first home if everything works out down the road, but yeah in terms of cash flow I am a little bit strapped at the moment.”

“Anyway, you aren’t here to hear me talk about that sort of stuff. If you look at the charts and do some really solid trade analysis, you will see that a heap of these coins could easily moon [appreciate exorbitantly] in the next few months or years,” he said while trying to show our reporters some charts with red lines drawn on them using MS paint.

The social media agency employee, who’s still trying to justify turning his girlfriend’s $2,000 investment into the cost of a night at a 3.5-star hotel in the CBD, said that he understands some people may think he is a fool but that ‘the strongest kite fights the wind.’

Fotherington’s long-suffering friend Karl Nitschke detailed to the Advocate his mate’s manic few months of shilling ‘shitcoins.’

“There was a period there were almost every day he was going on about some **** scam coin in the group chat with a couple of our other mates,” Nitschke said.

“AusCoin? Tron? Bitcoin Cash? Dogecoin, a coin made after a meme that has no legitimate purpose.”

“Buy high sell low is the motto he seems to be following at the moment.”

Nitschke told us that he enjoys asking Fotherington when the coins are going to ‘moon.’

“Yeah all of us do. Oi Foz (Fotherington), that Auscoin mooned yet? We always ask him,” Nitschke said.

“He blows up.”

More to come.

Does it also simulate your exchange getting hacked and you losing all of your coins with no recourse?

Bitcoin's remarkable run last year may have been smoke and mirrors.
Tether, another digital currency tied to the US dollar, was used to artificially inflate bitcoin prices, according a study released Wednesday by the University of Texas.

John Griffin, a finance professor at the university, and graduate student Amin Shams analyzed blockchain purchases and discovered that major Tether buys were timed to follow market downturns and helped stabilize bitcoin's floor.
