down the Node-Red rabbit hole, part 5 - hold my beer

part1 part2 part3 part4
so, it's been 4 months since i started this journey and i gotta say that NR has really re-vitalized my personal interest in home-automation, as well as, my HA and whole house setup.
i've done more in the past 4 months, to streamline my setup and adding new automations than i've done in the three years since i started using HA somewhere around v0.24.x'ish. i got that shit dialed in now.
(also some credit to EspHome for being awesome, despite having meh documentation. yeah, i said it. meh👏doc👏u👏men👏ta👏shun)
at this point i have about 36 NR tabs. some are just testing, or playing around with a particular component/palette, but most have at least one flow on it that is live and in use.
so, i thought i'd break some of them down for you guys, 'barney style+':
(also, some of these are way to huge to post readable screenshots of, so i'm just gonna describe them. plus some of these i detailed in my previous posts.)
first up is my globals. where i set global.vars
arrive/away
morning/bedtime/naptime
alarm
sonos
ping
watchdog
battery (the nodes are very similar to above)
switch control
harmony
remote
long term away
spotify
washedryer
doorbell
disk space
gmail
calendar
alexa TTS (subflow)
drafthouse
twitter link
so, yeah. i'd like to see some of you post some of your flows/ideas if only so i could totally steal them.
.

+obscure skippy joke. it's from a book++.
++yes i read. well, i audiobook, but same diff+++.
+++i mean, it's just basic science!++++
++++i mean, that study coulda been bullshit, sponsored by "the audiobook council" or some shit, but i'm taking it at face value.

Bitcoin SV Undergoes “Genesis” Hard Fork And Splits In Two Chains

Bitcoin SV Undergoes “Genesis” Hard Fork And Splits In Two Chains

The Controversial Cryptocurrency Announced The Upgrade At The End Of Last Month
One of the most controversial cryptocurrencies to date, Craig Wright’s Bitcoin SV, underwent a blockchain upgrade, dubbed as “Genesis.” It seems Bitcoin SV developers aim to get their blockchain as close to the original Bitcoin blockchain as possible.
Some of the new features the Bitcoin SV blockchain now has include removed block size limits, as well as “full original functionality” of the core Bitcoin script. The hard fork also utilized the Pay to Script hash, imbued into Bitcoin Improvement Protocol 16, or BIP 16. The upgrade, which under normal circumstances creates a different currency did not result in a new coin, rather than two co-existing blockchains.
The “dual blockchain” phenomenon occurs when the majority of users are still using the old version of the protocol. In the case of Bitcoin SV, only a small number of clients upgraded to version 1.0.0, leaving the rest with a fully-functional “old” blockchain.
Daniel Connolly and Steve Shadders, a part of the core development team at Bitcoin SV, commented that the primary goal of the upgrade is to restore the original identity of Bitcoin, scalability improvements, as well as boosting protocol stability.
Removing the block size limit, however, isn’t done entirely, as the total removing of block sizes would come in a later upgrade. The developers also noted that Bitcoin SV mines would decide block size limits, according to network activity. The loss of block size limits will transform miners into network throughput watchdogs, increasing or decreasing block sizes as necessary.
The block size limit removal actually means Bitcoin SV aims at diversifying the use of its coin for purposes other than storing value. Bitcoin SV can be used as a medium for data transactions, smart contract platform, content delivery networks, IoT, and many other purposes.
On the financial side, Bitcoin SV recorded a four percent loss in the past 24 hours, which correlates with the market move for the entire crypto sector. The protocol upgrade didn’t cause the expected price volatility, as Bitcoin SV continued to trade sideways at around $269.86, as of press time.
However, bullish indications suggest the price per one BSV may jump over the $300 barrier. If Bitcoin SV manages to breach the strong $300 resistance, experts believe BSV’s price would reach the $350 mark. On the downside, the low trading volumes and the wash trading considerations among some crypto traders form a downward tendency for Bitcoin SV’s price. If the support at $270 cracks, Bitcoin SV could fall down to $236, which is the Jan 19 low. A price slip under $236 could resolve into a cascading sell-off beneath $200.

Continuous Pool Disconnection & 0 Mh/s Speeds

What's up internet/fellow miners. About a week ago I've made the decision to turn my gaming PC to a mining rig. I've had some success solo mining with nicehashminer (Bitcoin miner) but decided that it would be better to mine Ethereum. I've followed the guide and kept coming across these issues. . . I don't know if it's because my config files are whack or another underlying issue.
(EDIT) Connected to us1.ethermine.org:4444 now i'm getting different issues. Here are my most recent logs.

Belgian Finance Watchdog Ups List Of Suspected Crypto Scams To 131Belgium’s financial sector regulator has issued a fresh warning over suspected cryptocurrency scam websites, bringing its running list to 131 domains. It noted that the anatomy of such frauds continues to be the same, with scammers promising riches in easy steps, regardless of prior knowledge of cryptocurrencies. But, it warned, “In the end, the result is always the same: the victims find themselves unable to recover their money!”
Malta Financial Services Authority prompts Bitcoin Future to be at risk of fraudThe Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) has recognized an entity called Bitcoin Future. The entity appears to exhibit the same deceptive characteristics as another entity, Bitcoin Revolution. The MFSA had previously issued a public warning on January 25, 2019 and August 29, 2019 at Bitcoin Revolution. Bitcoin Future is not a registered company in Malta, nor is it an entity operating under the provisional provisions of Section 62 of the Virtual Financial Assets Act, nor is it authorized to provide any financial services in Malta. In addition, the information obtained by the MFSA indicates that Bitcoin Future may be an international “fast get rich” cryptocurrency scam. Therefore, the public should avoid any business or transaction with an entity operating under the above name.

Recently, there were mostly range moves above the $9,000 support area against the US Dollar. BTC corrected lower below the $9,150 level and settled below the 100 hourly simple moving average.
The recent low was formed near the $9,013 and the price is currently holding the $9,000 support area. It is climbing higher and trading above the $9,100 level. Moreover, there was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $9,534 high to $9,013 low.
However, the price seems to be facing resistance near $9,200 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Additionally, this week’s followed major bearish trend line is active with resistance near $9,150 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

We Need A New Way For Our Intel Agencies To Classify Information With Both Greater Transparency And Greater Secrecy. A Proposal That May Work For Both Them and Us--DeClassification-coin that Intel Pre-Pays to Classify Documents of > 5 yr secrecy

I want to remind everyone that they will do themselves a great service by reading what I find to be (and many agree) one of the greatest speeches in history, JFK's speech to the press at Waldorf Astoria, and for the purposes of this post, the following part
I want to talk about our common responsibilities in the face of a common danger. The events of recent weeks may have helped to illuminate that challenge for some; but the dimensions of its threat have loomed large on the horizon for many years. Whatever our hopes may be for the future--for reducing this threat or living with it--there is no escaping either the gravity or the totality of its challenge to our survival and to our security--a challenge that confronts us in unaccustomed ways in every sphere of human activity.
This deadly challenge imposes upon our society two requirements of direct concern both to the press and to the President--two requirements that may seem almost contradictory in tone, but which must be reconciled and fulfilled if we are to meet this national peril. I refer, first, to the need for a far greater public information; and, second, to the need for far greater official secrecy.
The second part is important. Not many people talk about that. But he's saying the intel community has to be able to do their job in utmost secrecy. Trump believes this, because Trump thinks it has been stupid and self-defeating for the press to telegraph military moves, and he is correct. You can't defeat someone if your press is telling opposition that you are coming--it gives the enemy the field advantage for ambush, tactics and strategy.
The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.
Well, sorry JFK. Not only did they murder you in broad daylight, they had decades to abuse our systems to create more ability for 'official censorship and concealment'. We are seeing the full fruition of the abuse of secrecy today. As in, this very weekend, as google --which the literate person knows is a public-private partnership with the intel community from which it was funded--is now in the activity of intimidating voters and silencing politically oppositional voices through increasingly disproportionate, hostile, draconian and byzantine restrictions and behavioral control and punishments, alienating people from their platform and essentially blowing up their financials in the process.
At any rate, the point is this: we have only seen that in the last decades since Allen Dulles et al on behalf of the american ruling class (ie the deepstate) exploded JFK's braincase in Texas, that the intel agencies have been abusing secrecy in order to traffick in contraband and commit the most repugant acts that we created these very agencies to inhibit!
And they continue to abuse secrecy by redacting information that is embarrassing, or would reveal their OWN crimes, intrigues, conspiracies, abuses, corruption and scandals. This is not the only thing they redact, but when we the people (as in investigative journalists or interested parties such as street or amateur journalists / internet sleuths) want to know something, it takes years of stonewalling and FOIA lawsuits in order to get that information. There has been some information, for example, that conservative watchdog org Judicial Watch, has been trying to retrieve via the court system, for YEARS. That is unacceptable, but the gov in this case is acting like a mafia or a banana republic / despot and will not honor the spirit of the FOIA law, or the spirit of JFK or the American spirit of freedom and transparency generally--and this wildly disappointing and shameful.
What we need is to AUTOMATE
We're doing it for everything else--why not with information?
We need to automate classification and declassification, and take it out of the hands of the people classifying. They get ONE SHOT at designating something as 1 or 5 yr expiry, or MORE (it will cost ya), and then it's out of their hands and the timer is set for declassification. They get a deadline, just like the rest of us non-government slobs, to GET ER DONE. If they fail, well. Welcome to real world, shampoo sofa spyflake
We really need a system whereby classification is automatically expired and those redactions come off.
Like a document system where the redactions are programmatically added and the moment they are they are given 1 yr or 5 yr expire time, and no more, and if they have a permanent seal, then a carbon copy goes to the US president, the Sargeant-at-arms of the Congress and One special member of the Supreme court, unredacted and classified at the highest level, with their discretion to declassify after holding a required quorum of all 3.
And then this information is published openly as redacted by encryption, but at the US Government cost of a cryptocoin per page
That way if the public really wants to know, they will be willing to spend the resources to (mine-)crack it, perhaps en-masse using their own computers working in unison (declassification miner app in the tray), and when they succeed, they recover that cryptocoin used to seal it. This way, they get paid back for their resources, and a very small profit, which disincentivizes gov abuse of documents.
Make them pay to redact things.
Implementation
It's important to have a system whereby secreted information can be disbursed to public in response to a greater and more urgent public interest, escalating said information from casual to critical. In other words, if the public demands to know, such as in the case of widespread corrutption within the government itself, they should be able to know, or find out.
After all, we are paying these intel people and if they have the power to keep something from us forever, then we really aren't a "democracy" or even a "republic" (given that republic have representatives that ostensibly represent the public...keeping information secret forever creates an 'untouchable class' of rulers to which only the representatives answer and NOT the public)
Here is a technical suggestion to implement a public-driven mechanism for discovery that doesn't allow "individual humans" or even ai agents from making capricious decisions on what the public should know or not know:
US Intel Documents under any kind of classification need to be a mixture of text and ciphertext, which represents the redacted portions of the document. The ciphertext should be encapsulated in a tag (as in the whole document is xml) that makes any viewer aware of the fact that it's redacted ciphertext that is largely ignored for natural language text processors or lexers, and which is presented as a black bar represnting the length of the text as an attribute of the tag, created at the time of document's creation
This ciphertext also has an ID associated with it, which ties to the database, but the ciphertext is also contained within the tag, and is ALWAYS kept with the document itself (as in it's always present, not simply referenced. This way if the database is blown up, the text will ALWAYS be with the document, no matter what, just hidden as metadata within the tag itself). This redundancy also acts as a parity check for both the database contents AND the document itself as they are reciprocally validating datastores.
A paper wallet is an offline bitcoin storage mechanism of the public and private keys needed to access stored bitcoin in that offline wallet (bitcoins sent to that wallet public address). Included at the bottom of the document is a bitcoin paper wallet address tag representing the total number of bitcoins the redactions are worth.
Inside of this tag is ciphertext of the bitcoin paper wallet and all details, encrypted, as well as information needed to decrypt the redacted portions, whose decryption otherwise would give meaningless noise information. In other words, unredacting individual portions of the document gives you something meaningless, the declassification-coin software must focus on this decrypting this one block of ciphertext only, and when the decryption succeeds, the document is unredacted ALL-AT-ONCE and the paper wallet and its bitcoin are accessible and shared among those clients that particpated in breaking the encryption, and given portions proportionate to the amount of effort they used in cracking it.
Now I'm saying "encryption" but people smarter than myself know that what I'm actually really talking about is a declassification-coin, a unique type of service oriented crypto system that I'm describing, since crypto coin IS this type of group cracking
I'm just using a language that I personally understand, and I'm sorry to you more advanced computer and crypto people for using hamhanded or half understood concepts. I believe I understand bitcoin to a point, maybe better than some (ie: it's based on a pki type system) but what I'm driving at is how this system should work generally, and the cryptocoin aspects are something others smarter than myself would have to figure out.
It's important to have the 'all at one' aspect of it, so that people get recompense for their cracking efforts
And it's important that the intel agency have to PAY much more in order to classify something stronger than 1 or 5 yr expiry. This is to discourage them from hiding stuff from us that simply embarrasses them. It forces them to use legitimate reasons for keeping things secret.

CMV: Blockchain is not a good fit for voting.

I've seen people argue that blockchains are a good solution for voting systems, but I disagree. At least, no one has been able to convince me of why they are necessary when all the problems involved with electronic voting systems can already be solved more cheaply without it.
Here is the situation is many places today:
You go to a polling place. You tell them who you are, and they log that you voted. You are given a ballot, and then you vote on paper, and are given some kind of receipt. Later, votes are tallied and the winner is selected.
This scheme requires that we trust the people who are counting, and even if we trust them to be honest, mistakes can still be made here and there leading to minor inaccuracies.
Here is the proposed solution using blockchain technology, to the best of my understanding:
You are given a voting key of some kind (this is your private key), either in person at a polling place, or maybe in the mail or online. You open the voting software, you enter your key and cast your vote for your preferred candidates/measures. The ballot is digitally signed and recorded in the blockchain, which requires other computers in the network to find a hash for it and record it, and these ballot/hash combos are propagated around the network. Because the blockchain is a public ledger, you can see your vote in the blockchain (provided you have access to the network its on) and see all the votes, including your own (which you would be able to identify with your key, but no on else could).
My objection is that I don't think using a blockchain buys you much of value here, and there are better ways to record your vote while retaining anonymity and verifiability, while also being cheaper (hashing isn't free) and less power intensive. And depending on who you designate as the miners (the ones hashing the ballots) you might open yourself to 51% attacks. And Bitcoin, the most well known example of blockchain technology, only gets 7 transactions per second. You'd need to retool this voting platform to manage a rate closer to 3000 votes per second if we wanted to use it.
We could do the same thing as the plan above, but instead of recording it in a blockchain, you just upload it to a set of servers: One official government one, but also various watchdog groups, like the DNC, RNC, independent auditors, etc. None of these servers can falsify votes without your private key - at worst they can ignore votes. If the democratic server ignores republican votes or vice versa, you just take the union of all servers and reconstruct the record of all votes. There's no benefit to throwing a blockchain on top of that system. You can still verify your vote was recorded correctly and tallied, and you're not wasting tons of hashing power.
The hard part is delivering private keys to voters in a safe way, but using a blockchain doesn't solve that problem.

'''
Between headlines like “China Bans Bitcoin”, “China Bans Crypto Exchanges?”, and “China Bans Bitcoin Mining,” it’s no surprise that most people are unclear on where China stands on cryptocurrency and whether that has any real bearing on how its citizens behave.
We hope to demystify this and offer some insight into the legal status of cryptocurrency and related matters.

In law

In China, bitcoin is legally recognized and protected as virtual property. This has been the law since 2013 and the classification was reconfirmed in the recent [Hangzhou court ruling]1 .
However, this does not recognize bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies as legal currency. Hence, any use of Bitcoin as a currency is illegal. Occasional peer-to-peer OTC transactions are acceptable, as long as the behavior remains on a small scale. All mainland financial institutions are barred from any involvement in virtual currencies and foreign entities are also prohibited from serving mainland customers.
Related: [UK Finance Watchdog Issues Guidance on Regulation for Bitcoin and Crypto Assets]2
China has been[ progressively restricting more aspects of cryptocurrency]3 within its borders dating back to September 2017, when it began by[ banning ICOs]4 because of the financial risk and frequent fraud.
Since then, China has[ not hesitated to prosecute]5 seriously offending ICOs or crypto scams, which were clearly scamming their customers, such as Hero Chain, EOSPLUS, TronDotWallet, PlusToken, MGC, and DOGX. Some of them raised a ton of money from retail and exit scammed, some disguised as wallets or high-yield quant fund. The largest among them is [PlusToken]6 , which has scammed over a whopping $3 billion in total. Core team members of PlusToken were arrested earlier this year in Vanuatu with the help of local police and are now facing decades in jail.
The ICO rules also restricted the activity of cryptocurrency exchanges domiciled in mainland China, as they are considered to be facilitating illegal fundraising and financial crimes. To preserve their businesses after the ban, these exchanges restructured and moved overseas to countries such as Japan, Singapore and[ registered in countries like the Seychelle]7 s and Malta.
However, some exchanges, including Huobi and OKEx, continue to conspicuously serve Chinese customers in crypto to crypto trading, and facilitate yuan to BTC/USDT exchange disguised behind a peer-to-peer OTC front.
The regulatory requirements on bitcoin mining are relatively fuzzy, the “ban” was not issued by a legal or regulatory department, but rather came from a “[industry structure reform recommendation]8 ” from a state planning agency, which usually serves as [a guideline instead of actual regulation]9 . Hence, we haven’t seen any material impact on local mining facilities due to this “ban”. While many Chinese miners are currently looking for foreign sites, that is primarily due to fierce local competition rather than regulatory concerns.

In practice

The actual handling of cryptocurrency in mainland China in practice doesn’t reflect the letter of the law, however.
It’s no secret that Chinese citizens remain deeply involved in cryptocurrency mining, trading, and ICOs/IEOs. While official figures say that the percentage of cryptocurrency trading attributable to the yuan has dropped from 90% to 1% in the wake of the 2017 regulation, this does not account for over-the-counter trading which is where most fiat to crypto volume in China[ has shifted to]10 since the regulation.
OTC options are offered by exchanges like Huobi as well as by locally managed WeChat groups. These OTC desks take the form of a marketplace where buy and sell orders are offered manually and transactions are done in a peer-to-peer manner. The platform here merely acts as a place for buyers and sellers to discover each other, rather than facilitating trades itself as exchanges do.

Cryptocurrency companies use ‘backdoor’ listings to ease into mainstream

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Several cryptocurrency exchanges have moved closer to mainstream markets by buying listed companies, looking to raise funds and present themselves as embedded in the traditional financial services world they once spurned.
In the most recent deal, U.S. crypto broker-dealer Voyager Digital on Feb. 11 achieved a “backdoor” listing on Toronto’s Venture Exchange after it bought control of mineral exploration firm UC Resources.
Such purchases, also known as reverse mergers, allow companies to offer shares to the public without the rigors and regulatory scrutiny of a full initial public offering (IPO).
“Many (cryptocurrency) exchanges have put a lot of strategic effort into trying to legitimize their operations and their reputations, and for some there’s an assumption that having some exposure to the traditional public market will help,” said Fei Ding’an, managing partner at Ledger Capital, a digital asset investment firm.
Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) is the only major national regulator so far to have drawn up a definitive framework to govern digital assets and the platforms where they are traded.
In January, OKC Holdings, a company controlled by Star Xu, the founder of crypto-exchange OK Coin, bought 60.5 percent of LEAP Holdings,, a Hong Kong-listed construction firm, for HK$484 million ($61.69 million).
Days later, the parent of Korean crypto exchange Bithumb announced plans for a U.S. listing via the purchase of Blockchain Industries.
Last year, investors that included the co-founders of crypto-exchange software producer ANX International bought a controlling stake in Hong Kong-listed marketing firm Branding China, while Huobi, a Singapore based exchange, bought a 72 percent stake in Hong Kong-listed power electrical company Pantronics Holdings.
Voyager said its listed shares could help fund growth.
“Being a public company enables Voyager to operate with the transparency that the crypto market deserves from its institutions,” Voyager CEO Steve Ehrlich said in an email.
Neither Huobi nor OKCoin has given details of their plans for the purchases.
ANX International remains separate from the renamed BC Group, but since the change in ownership the listed unit has launched new businesses that include a digital asset trading and exchange platform.
A spokesman for BC Group said being publicly traded gave clients “additional confidence in knowing we are a credible company and here for the long game.”
Spokespeople for OKCoin and Huobi declined to comment.
Neither Bithumb nor its parent Blockchain Exchange Alliance responded to requests for comment.
LEGITIMACY
Crypto experts said the deals could help the industry gain greater mainstream acceptance.
The reputation of cryptocurrencies, and particularly exchanges, has been hit hard by fears of price volatility and possible uses for laundering money alongside high-profile hacks and infrastructure failures.
Last year, the New York attorney general’s office warned that several cryptocurrency exchanges were plagued by poor market surveillance and pervasive conflicts of interest, saying some may be operating illegally.
This month, $137 million in cryptocurrencies was frozen in the user accounts of Canadian digital platform Quadriga after the founder, the only person with the password to gain access, died unexpectedly.
The crypto market peaked in late 2017, when trading volumes surged and bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, reached a high just above $20,000. Bitcoin’s price has fallen more 80 percent since then, and trading volumes have slumped.
Some exchanges may also feel pressure from investors seeking a means of realizing their profits.
“With the market turning south and regulators not being happy, this is an opportunity to satisfy investors and founders who are looking for an exit,” said Zennon Kapron, director at financial technology consultancy Kapronasia.
WRESTLING WITH REGULATORS
Public listings of cryptocurrency exchanges also pose a challenge for regulators, who are only beginning to grapple with the issues of overseeing the trading of digital currencies.
Japan’s FSA became the first major jurisdiction to regulate the exchanges in 2016, but has since refined its rules to allow the industry to largely self-regulate.
In the United States, New York state has, so far, issued a handful of so-called BitLicences for companies doing any sort of virtual currency business.
Both Hong Kong’s market watchdog, the Securities and Futures Commission, and the Hong Kong Exchange declined to comment.
But the commission is considering whether some cryptocurrency trading platforms are suitable for regulation, a process it hopes to finish this year, its chief executive, Ashley Alder, told legislators on Tuesday.
Hong Kong officials have already questioned the sustainability of crypto businesses when last year, the world’s largest makers of cryptocurrency mining rigs did not follow through on IPO plans in Hong Kong, in part because of the questions officials raised.
“It’s possible a crypto exchange could incubate a new crypto business inside a Hong Kong-listed company, maintain the listed company’s existing operations, and not be treated as a new IPO, but it is a very difficult tightrope to walk,” said a person familiar with the listing committee’s processes, speaking anonymously because he was not authorized to speak to the media on the subject.
The Hong Kong Stock Exchange’s Listing Committee must be satisfied that a company’s business is sustainable before it can list. The miners’ bids were stymied by fears that the falling price of bitcoin made their business models unworkable, sources said.
Although backdoor listings are permitted in most countries, some regulators, including those in Hong Kong, can review the deals and can in some circumstances require a full IPO instead.
“Crypto companies may struggle to demonstrate suitability for listing given the state of regulation of the industry and uncertain business models,” said Jason Sung, a Hong Kong-based partner at law firm Herbert Smith Freehills.
Exchanges like Bithumb that are looking to the United States could also similar roadblocks.
The SEC has authority both over U.S. companies selling digital securities and companies conducting a reverse merger in the United States.
“Depending on what the companies are planning to do they very well might have to seek regulatory approval from the SEC or the CFTC,” said Richard Levin, chairman of the financial technology and regulatory practice at the U.S. law firm Polsinelli.

Japan’s FSA became the first major jurisdiction to regulate the exchanges in 2016, but has since refined its rules to allow the industry to largely self-regulate.
In the United States, New York state has, so far, issued a handful of so-called BitLicences for companies doing any sort of virtual currency business.
Both Hong Kong’s market watchdog, the Securities and Futures Commission, and the Hong Kong Exchange declined to comment.
But the commission is considering whether some cryptocurrency trading platforms are suitable for regulation, a process it hopes to finish this year, its chief executive, Ashley Alder, told legislators on Tuesday.
Hong Kong officials have already questioned the sustainability of crypto businesses when last year, the world’s largest makers of cryptocurrency mining rigs did not follow through on IPO plans in Hong Kong, in part because of the questions officials raised.
“It’s possible a crypto exchange could incubate a new crypto business inside a Hong Kong-listed company, maintain the listed company’s existing operations, and not be treated as a new IPO, but it is a very difficult tightrope to walk,” said a person familiar with the listing committee’s processes, speaking anonymously because he was not authorized to speak to the media on the subject.
The Hong Kong Stock Exchange’s Listing Committee must be satisfied that a company’s business is sustainable before it can list. The miners’ bids were stymied by fears that the falling price of bitcoin made their business models unworkable, sources said.
Although backdoor listings are permitted in most countries, some regulators, including those in Hong Kong, can review the deals and can in some circumstances require a full IPO instead.
“Crypto companies may struggle to demonstrate suitability for listing given the state of regulation of the industry and uncertain business models,” said Jason Sung, a Hong Kong-based partner at law firm Herbert Smith Freehills.
Exchanges like Bithumb that are looking to the United States could also similar roadblocks.
The SEC has authority both over U.S. companies selling digital securities and companies conducting a reverse merger in the United States.
“Depending on what the companies are planning to do they very well might have to seek regulatory approval from the SEC or the CFTC,” said Richard Levin, chairman of the financial technology and regulatory practice at the U.S. law firm Polsinelli.

Cryptocurrency companies use ‘backdoor’ listings to ease into mainstream

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Several cryptocurrency exchanges have moved closer to mainstream markets by buying listed companies, looking to raise funds and present themselves as embedded in the traditional financial services world they once spurned.
In the most recent deal, U.S. crypto broker-dealer Voyager Digital on Feb. 11 achieved a “backdoor” listing on Toronto’s Venture Exchange after it bought control of mineral exploration firm UC Resources.
Such purchases, also known as reverse mergers, allow companies to offer shares to the public without the rigors and regulatory scrutiny of a full initial public offering (IPO).
“Many (cryptocurrency) exchanges have put a lot of strategic effort into trying to legitimize their operations and their reputations, and for some there’s an assumption that having some exposure to the traditional public market will help,” said Fei Ding’an, managing partner at Ledger Capital, a digital asset investment firm.
Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) is the only major national regulator so far to have drawn up a definitive framework to govern digital assets and the platforms where they are traded.
In January, OKC Holdings, a company controlled by Star Xu, the founder of crypto-exchange OK Coin, bought 60.5 percent of LEAP Holdings,, a Hong Kong-listed construction firm, for HK$484 million ($61.69 million).
Days later, the parent of Korean crypto exchange Bithumb announced plans for a U.S. listing via the purchase of Blockchain Industries.
Last year, investors that included the co-founders of crypto-exchange software producer ANX International bought a controlling stake in Hong Kong-listed marketing firm Branding China, while Huobi, a Singapore based exchange, bought a 72 percent stake in Hong Kong-listed power electrical company Pantronics Holdings.
Voyager said its listed shares could help fund growth.
“Being a public company enables Voyager to operate with the transparency that the crypto market deserves from its institutions,” Voyager CEO Steve Ehrlich said in an email.
Neither Huobi nor OKCoin has given details of their plans for the purchases.
ANX International remains separate from the renamed BC Group, but since the change in ownership the listed unit has launched new businesses that include a digital asset trading and exchange platform.
A spokesman for BC Group said being publicly traded gave clients “additional confidence in knowing we are a credible company and here for the long game.”
Spokespeople for OKCoin and Huobi declined to comment.
Neither Bithumb nor its parent Blockchain Exchange Alliance responded to requests for comment.
LEGITIMACY
Crypto experts said the deals could help the industry gain greater mainstream acceptance.
The reputation of cryptocurrencies, and particularly exchanges, has been hit hard by fears of price volatility and possible uses for laundering money alongside high-profile hacks and infrastructure failures.
Last year, the New York attorney general’s office warned that several cryptocurrency exchanges were plagued by poor market surveillance and pervasive conflicts of interest, saying some may be operating illegally.
This month, $137 million in cryptocurrencies was frozen in the user accounts of Canadian digital platform Quadriga after the founder, the only person with the password to gain access, died unexpectedly.
The crypto market peaked in late 2017, when trading volumes surged and bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, reached a high just above $20,000. Bitcoin’s price has fallen more 80 percent since then, and trading volumes have slumped.
Some exchanges may also feel pressure from investors seeking a means of realizing their profits.
“With the market turning south and regulators not being happy, this is an opportunity to satisfy investors and founders who are looking for an exit,” said Zennon Kapron, director at financial technology consultancy Kapronasia.

Public listings of cryptocurrency exchanges also pose a challenge for regulators, who are only beginning to grapple with the issues of overseeing the trading of digital currencies.

Crypto Month in Review - March 2018

Previous reviews: Jan, Feb Crypto moves way too fast for me to keep up, so I aggregate each day's biggest headline and publish the list at the end of the month. Below is my list for March. My main news source was reddit. My main holdings are ETH and NANO, but I try to make these lists as unbiased as possible. As requested by you guys, I have included source links to each of these headlines. I also took a screenshot of the market cap movement throughout the month that you can see here. To speak to March in particular - even though we are in a bear market right now, and the first half of the month had pretty negative headlines, hopefully the many promising headlines in the 2nd half of the list will help assure you that distributed ledger technology is only becoming more adopted and embedded in society with each passing day. 3/1 - Oyster Pearl completes a coin burn of 10% of its total supply. This comes one day after they released their testnet. 3/2 - TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington is subpoenaed by the Securites and Exchange Commision over his $100 million cryptocurrency fund. 3/3 - A class-action lawsuit is filed against Coinbase alleging insider trading prior to Bitcoin Cash trading going live on their exchange. 3/4 - An anonymous person publishes a pastebin document detailing a FUD campaign by CoinDesk backers Digital Currency Group against IOTA. 3/5 - Coinbase hires former LinkedIn exec Emilie Choi to serve as VP of corporate & business development, with an emphasis on “world-class acquisition and partnership opportunities”. 3/6 - WaltonChain subsidiary ZhongChuan IoT and Alibaba Cloud sign a strategic partnership to research Smart City solutions and blockchain application schemes. 3/7 - A rogue actor who had been phishing Binance accounts uses the victims’ funds to pump the price of Viacoin. Withdrawals on Binance were automatically frozen, and the hacker’s transactions were later rolled back. 3/8 - Sierra Leone, in conjunction with blockchain voting startup Agora, records the world’s first ever presidential election on a blockchain. (NOTE: This claim has now been rejected by the Sierra Leone government.) 3/9 - Security researchers at the University of Toronto catch the Egyptian government remotely hijacking citizens’ computers to covertly mine Monero. 3/10 - Reports reveal that Google has been quietly purging cryptocurrency ads, mainly those for ICOs, under pressure from the FBI. The FBI also convinced Facebook to do the same thing in February. 3/11 - Binance posts a $250,000 bounty for information that leads to the arrest of the perpetrators of the March 7th hack. 3/12 - John Oliver explains Bitcoin and blockchain to a global audience and pens his #CraefulGang movement while condemning projects such as EOS and Bitconnect on his CNN show Last Week Tonight. 3/13 - VeChain announces a partnership with Chinese supply chain risk management company LogSafer. 3/14 - In the wake of John Oliver’s cryptocurrency segment in which EOS spokesperson Brock Pierce’s questionable past was outlined, EOS decides to cut ties with him, scrubbing their site and YouTube channel of any reference to him. 3/15 - Bitcoin core devs release a beta version of the Lightning network to the mainnet. 3/16 - The 2018 Joint Economic Committee Report dedicates an entire section to the rise of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. 3/17 - Bitmain announces a new mining machine, the antminer 3x, that is primarily designed to mine Monero. The Monero community claims that they will render the miner useless with an upcoming fork. 3/18 - At the G20 summit, the Financial Security board opines that crypto-assets do not pose a risk to global financial stability, and that further regulations at this time would not be necessary. 3/19 - Businessman and Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary announces his plan to work with the SEC to issue a cryptocurrency that will act as stock for a $400 million dollar hotel company. He also states that asset-based coins will eventually replace small-cap stocks. 3/20 - Nano releases their developer road map, revealing that they have a point of sale payment system in alpha stages of testing. 3/21 - A DDoS attack against the Bitcoin Lightning Network brings 20% of its nodes down. 3/22 - Yahoo Japan announces that it is acquiring Japanese exchange BitARG and will launch its own exchange in 2019. 3/23 - After uncertain talks with Hong Kong regulators, Binance announces that it is moving to Malta. It also reveals plans to allow users to buy crypto with fiat directly. 3/24 - Santander announces plans to launch an international money transfer app that will run on Ripple. 3/25 - The Coinbase logo is spotted in the new intro to HBO show Silicon Valley. 3/26 - Coinbase announces incoming support for ERC20 tokens without specifying which tokens it will list. 3/27 - Stephen Colbert announces on his show that Ripple has donated $26 million in XRP to DonorsChoose.org . 3/28 - Decentralized payment network OmiseGo and Ethereum cofounder Vitalik Buterin donate $1 million via GiveDirectly to support Ugandan refugees. 3/29 - Cryptocurrency exchange and Tether backer Bitfinex announces imminent fiat markets for BTC, ETH, NEO, IOTA, and EOS.

I am Francis Pouliot, full-time Bitcoin advocate and director at the Bitcoin Embassy. I'm running for a seat of the Bitcoin Foundation board. AMA

My name is Francis Pouliot and I am a full-time Bitcoin advocate, educator, and community organizer. You may have heard of me as Director of Public Affairs at the Bitcoin Embassy, the first physical space in the world dedicated to the promotion and development of the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Fellow Canadians will recognize me as the Chief Executive Officer at the Bitcoin Foundation Canada, a pan-Canadian membership-based advocacy group dedicated to ensuring a favorable environment for Canada's cryptocurrency ecosystem.
While I may not be a famous Bitcoin investor or entrepreneur, I consider myself a large stakeholder in Bitcoin since cryptocurrency (mostly Bitcoin) represents around 90% of my assets and is effectively my only source of income. I’m also a Bitcoin miner, integration consultation and certified Bitcoin professional with C4 (passed at 96%).
The best decision of my life has been to re-orient my rapidly advancing and successful career as a policy analyst for free-market think tanks in order to dedicate myself full-time to being an active participant in the cryptocurrency revolution. I still remain to this day an active supporter of the libertarian movement through my involvement in various pro-liberty organizations - but I will never use the Foundation as a medium to promote my personal beliefs.
My general assessment of the current state of the Bitcoin
Foundation is that by pursuing too many goals, the Foundation has misallocated and mismanaged resources necessary to successfully fulfill the essential mandate of supporting technical development. It has not lived up to its potential and has disappointed many of its members, including myself. I truly believe in the Foundation’s mission to protect Bitcoin's technological infrastructure and that, in realizing this goal, it must remain an important part of the Bitcoin ecosystem. I also believe that the only essential mission of the Bitcoin Foundation, that should take priority over all others, should become and always remain the protection and development of Bitcoin’s technological infrastructure.
My platform
With humility, I propose myself as to represent my fellow individual members on the Bitcoin Foundation’s board of directors. I have the skills, values, energy and time necessary to accomplish this task successfully. As CEO of the BFC, I have knowledge of the inner-workings of the Foundation and know exactly what its problems are and the best way to overcome them. On behalf of its Canadian members, I have attempted to act as a watchdog, being critical of its work and suggesting reforms directly to staff members.
If I am elected, I pledge to continue this role on behalf of all individual members. I now ask for your support so that I may obtain the necessary powers to bring the Foundation to implement the following:
After having discussed with Patrick Murck, I believe that he is the most capable Executive Director that the Foundation could have at the moment. I also believe that we share the same broad vision as to where the Foundation should be heading and as your representative I will support him in his undertaking to bring the Foundation back to its roots.
Nature and role of the Bitcoin Foundation – some thoughts
(On this point I particularly oppose candidates Cody Wilson, Olivier Janseen and Colin Gallagher)
The Bitcoin Foundations, as a private organization, is a platform through which individual and corporate members can voluntarily coordinate and implement their common interests. It does not, nor should it attempt to or claim to, represent the entire Bitcoin community. Although it provides a public service, it is only accountable to its members.
That being said, there is no doubt that the (uninformed) general public’s perception of the Foundation will taint its perception of the entire Bitcoin community by proxy. In addition, the Foundation’s technical team has a large influence on the development process and its actions will have an effect on the entire Bitcoin community, whether they are members of the Foundation or not. As such, the Foundation has moral responsibilities that other private membership-based organizations do not and should act with this specificity in mind.
The Bitcoin community and ecosystem are extremely diverse. In my opinion, there is only one common interest amongst all members of our community: the continued existence and expansion of a healthy technical development process which will ensure the continued decentralization and scalability of the Bitcoin network. I believe that this is also true within the Bitcoin Foundation membership.
I think the idea that the existence of a “centralized institution” such as the Foundation is contradictory with the decentralized nature of Bitcoin is beyond ridiculous. Nor is it contradictory with the crypto-decentralization movement to which I personally identify myself with. In fact, there can be no decentralization movement if individuals and corporations do not coordinate their interests via some form of organization. While it is certainly likely that such associations and organizations will eventually take the form of Decentralized Autonomous Corporations, I do not believe the necessary technology has been developed to a degree which makes this option a logical choice for the Foundation (and probably won’t for the next couple of years).
Let’s be clear: the Bitcoin Foundation should never, under any circumstance, attempt to impose any agenda or barrier to entry whatsoever on members and non-members alike via the coercive power of government.
Also, the Bitcoin Foundation should not attempt to assert a monopoly over the technical development process. I am extremely happy to see private corporations such as Blockstream and Bitpay contribute to this process, and am even happier to see that individuals are still contributing their time on a voluntary basis. However, I think a large part of development should be undertaken by non-profit organizations in order to ensure some form of neutrality.
Final thoughts – regulation
As a libertarian, I am naturally against regulation. I do not intend to idly stand by while arbitrary decrees are imposed upon us, and, as such, I believe that stakeholders such as individuals, private corporations or local Bitcoin advocacy groups should actively engage government officials and regulators to ensure that no discriminatory regulation or legislation concerning Bitcoin occurs.
Under no circumstance should technology-specific regulation such as the BitLicenses be tolerated. Moreover, government decrees that are in effect discriminatory (such as the “double taxation” of bitcoins via sales taxes) should be fiercely opposed. Innovation does not require permission.
However, as we lobby for government not to discriminate against Bitcoin, we must also realize that Bitcoin does not and should not operate in a legal vacuum. Bitcoin business models that mimic legacy business models (such as currency exchanges) should be regulated in the same way as their fiat counterparts. For example, a Bitcoin exchange should comply to financial regulation in the same way as a fiat exchange. If we demand not to be discriminated against, we must also acknowledge that we can’t have special treatment just because we do not believe in the validity of the laws that apply to us.
I do realize that compliance requirements of the legacy fiat financial industry are often outdated and that the cryptocurrency ecosystem will come up with its own innovative solutions for KYC/AML. These solutions are to be encouraged and, ideally, they will become the standard not only for cryptocurrency businesses but for the entire financial industry.
Bitcoin is like an economic trojan horse – if we really want the cryptocurrency revolution to happen, it is crucially important that there be an economic infrastructure with exchanges, payment processors, brokers, financial products, etc. This is the key to mainstream user adoption and this will only occur if we play by the rules. Government can’t stop Bitcoin but it can certainly greatly slow down progress by enforcing its power on the individuals and corporations that compose the Bitcoin economic ecosystem, something even the most anarchic members of the community should realize.
(On this point I particularly oppose candidate Jim Harper)
It seems to me that the Foundation has an “identity crisis” because its mandate is simply too broad. It cannot be at the same time a “Linux Foundation-style” organization and a lobby group such as the Digital Chamber of Commerce or think tank such as Coin Center. Because it has given itself too many goals, each goal has been inefficiently carried out.
The Foundation’s involvement in lobbying has considerably contributed to its negative perception by the community, which means less membership and less revenue. This means that there are fewer and fewer financial resources available for technical development. I believe that retreating from active political lobbying may reverse this trend.
The main reason is strictly based on pragmatism and resource allocation. There are various groups all over the world, including in the United States, who are actively involved in the fight against discriminatory or excessive Bitcoin regulation. The void that the Bitcoin Foundation had attempted to fill when it initially got into lobbying clearly does not exist anymore. However, there are no other non-profit organization involved in supporting technical development, so that in that area there is a very real void.
Finally, policy is inherently local and jurisdictional while the Foundation aims to be a global organization. I don’t think non-US members appreciate that their contributions are being spent on lobbying in Washington while the Foundation does nothing to prevent their own governments from obstructing the progress of Bitcoin.
