In this video you can quickly find out the opinions of these business tycoons on Bitcoin and cryptocurrency. We have gathered all the information for you about what Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Elon Musk and Richard Branson are all saying about Bitcoin and crypto, what their predictions are for Bitcoin in 2018 and if Bitcoin is a bubble waiting to burst or if it’s a legitimate financial product and technology. This is a very interesting video to give you guys some insight into what industry leaders are saying about Bitcoin.

  • Bitcoin climbed 9.7 percent to $9,346, its highest since Feb. 4, according to CoinDesk’s bitcoin price index, which tracks prices from four major exchanges.
  • The latest reports about South Korean regulation marked a toned-down approach, in contrast to fears in the last several weeks that the government would close down cryptocurrency exchanges.
  • Analysts also said that comments by financial regulators last week before the Senate Banking Committee that balanced regulation with consumer protection are helping prices recover.
  • Bitcoin remains more than 30 percent lower for the year so far.
  • Credit Karma Tax says fewer than 100 of 250,000 federal tax returns prepared and filed so far this year by its customers have included reports on cryptocurrency gains and losses.
  • Part of the reason for the lack of filings — especially for a year that saw investor interest in cryptocurrencies surge — is that every single trade and purchase using cryptocurrencies is considered a taxable event by the IRS.
  • Independent cryptocurrency trader Brandon Williams said the volume and volatility of cryptocurrencies means it takes him at least three or four hours every two weeks to note trading gains and losses.

Bitcoin’s rarely out of the news these days, given the rollercoaster ride it’s giving investors. But the cryptocurrency’s underlying technology is also making waves. It’s called ‘blockchain’ and it’s used to help verify transactions. For the companies behind it, it’s proving to be a boon, with one recently raising a $10-million investment in just a few seconds. Miguel Francis-Santiago met its CEO at a Blockchain Forum in Singapore.

Bitcoin has the potential to grow up to 40 times its current value, according to cryptocurrency billionaire Cameron Winklevoss, who described the leading digital currency as “better than gold”.

In case you have not been paying attention, Bitcoin is hot and (mostly) everybody wants a piece of the action.

Buy Bitcoin and you will see returns unheard of on Wall Street, or so the narrative has gone thus far. But for those looking to hop onto Bitcoin Mania at this stage in the game, they will discover that the price of many virtual currencies are no longer the bargain they once were.

And, according to a new LendEDU poll, some Bitcoin investors are leveraging their own finances in order to get some skin in the game.

LendEDU polled 672 active Bitcoin investors and discovered that many of them are purchasing the crypto currency in an incredibly risk manner: incurring credit card debt.

Bitcoin is crushed, losing 38.10% of its value over a seven-day period. Ethereum and Ripple are crushed, too, losing 43.23% and 48.14% respectively over the same period — see table 1

The cryptocurrency bitcoin is “a combination of a bubble, a Ponzi scheme and an environmental disaster,” according to Agustin Carstens, the head of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).

Over half a trillion dollars of value has been wiped off the entire cryptocurrency market in just under a month, as the prices of popular digital coins plunge.

BIS head says cryptocurrency is a ‘Ponzi scheme’ that poses a threat to financial stability

Transactions with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are no longer available for 8 million credit card users of Lloyds Banking Group, which unites Lloyds Bank, Bank of Scotland, Halifax and MBNA.

JPMorgan, Citigroup and others are closing the door on financial and legal risks.

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin and other cryptocurrencies have been on a roller coaster lately. Sharp upturns have been followed by sharp downturns, with each upturn and downturn lasting only a few weeks or a few days.

The Lightning network could enable much cheaper and faster bitcoin payments.

Japanese authorities on Friday raided virtual currency exchange Coincheck, a week after the Tokyo-based firm lost $530 million in cryptocurrency to hackers.

Bitcoin had been trading in a fairly tight range around $10,000 early last week until Thursday when it fell below $9,000 and hit a low near $7,850 per coinmarketcap.com. Bitcoin briefly bounced back to $9,000 and then drifted back down to $8,000 on Friday. It climbed back to around $9,450 this morning but has slipped to $9,200.

A growing number of big U.S. credit-card issuers are deciding they don’t want to finance a falling knife.

 

For Bitcoin investors, these are the times that try one’s soul.

Bitcoin is the most popular virtual currency yet developed.

CANBERRA, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) — The Australian government is investigating how it could tax cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, it has been revealed.

Michael Sukkar, Australia’s Assistant Treasurer, on Friday confirmed he was working on the issue with Treasury and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

CARACAS, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) — The Venezuelan government Wednesday published a white paper with rules governing its new cryptocurrency, the petro.

BitOasis, a digital asset wallet and exchange platform for cryptocurrency, has enabled submissions of new account verifications for one day only on Tuesday.

Exchanges such a BitOasis have received a lot of applications for verification as interest in cryptocurrency increased in the GCC region in the past year.
