This Is Really Excellent

We're at the 1-hour mark in this live webinar, and I just have to say the quality of insights and expertise Mark is sharing is top-notch.

The questions are very specific and in many cases complex. Mark is giving exact, concrete, actionable answers. He really is a top expert in this space.

Sorry I missed it...

Sounds good Adam, again great to see mutual respect amongst you all despite holding differing views in the past.

Forwarding this from someone that shared in Mark's community worth a read..

Well done, Adam, Chris, and Mark!  Worth every dime and then some. Thanks for educating us on cryptocurrency, I don't know where else I would go for honest information.

Advice after the webinar

Don't be in too much of a hurry. Mistakes can happen that are costly when you rush. Be careful and remember to do your own research. It will make you much more confident when you understand the 'why' at a deep level.  Then ask yourself the same four questions I do before moving forward.

 

Thanks for the opportunity!

What's up with Tether and Bitfinex?

Hi Mark and others-

   In researching cryptos tonight, I stumbled on Tether USDT.  It caught my eye because it was one of the few cryptos not in the red today.  But in reading more about it, I came upon this article (and others like it) claiming Tether is a big scam.  Check it out; the alleged plot is reminiscent of other types of corruption we are all too familiar with in other markets:

There are also concerns over Bitfinex not being completely transparent about being key in creating and establishing a cryptocurrency called ‘Tether’ (USDT), which is intended to be pegged to the US dollar at a rate of 1:1. There are now questions about whether Tether itself is backed with sufficient funding in case of a run on the markets (and in some instances if you even just want to withdraw dollars out of Tether). There are also question markets about whether Bitfinex has been instrumental in driving up Bitcoin prices, partly via Tether. [bold mine]

   If true, that's a big concern (risk) those of us venturing into this investment space need to be aware of. 

  There's a lot more to this story, and a lot of other angles, which you can find if you do a search on Tether and Bitfinex, or on "Is Tether a Scam".  Here's another article from back in November, "Tether ‘Hack’ EXPOSES Bitfinex in Money Laundering".

   Interestingly, much of what I found is a couple weeks or months old, so I am curious what the latest is on this.  Is this all empty speculation?  Or is there something to it?

    Mark (and others), I am curious what you have read/hear about this, and if you have thoughts to share on it. 

   Thanks!

Bitfinex and Tether

We have talked about that a few times (Dave Fairfax and I). I believe it is a scam (both of them). I've advised stay clear away from both of them. In this turmoil - it may be enough after the Bitconnect Ponzi, to reach them and bring the market down even further. A lot of exchanges use Tether as a fill-in for USD in trades. This could cause a contagion effect. Tread very lightly for a while.

Thanks Mark

I hadn't seen your previous discussion with Dave on this topic, which I have now found here.

I really have more of an appreciation for the need for caution in dealing with cryptos and their exchanges after digging into this story.  That was also reinforced by your comment on the webinar, equating crypto exchanges to "dirty public restrooms":" you get in, do your business, and get out as quickly as possible".  I got a chuckle out of that one.  And you made your point! :)
