  • IRS conducting electronic surveillance in attempt to clampdown on Bitcoin tax crime [Forum Post] The IRS plans to interview family and friends, search through social media posts, and issue subpoenas to ensure people pay taxes on their Bitcoin, according to a presentation given to the IRS Criminal Investigation division. Top companies including Apple, Google, and Microsoft are also under the gamut of these investigations. The IRS is going to great lengths to identify and prosecute cryptocurrency-facilitated tax crime. In a 181 slide presentation, James Daniels, the IRS-CI cyber crimes program manager, details the usage, ecosystem, and technology behind top cryptocurrencies (including Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Stellar, and Monero). What’s alarming are the recommendations provided to IRS agents for obtaining information from taxpayers. read more https://cryptoslate.com/irs-conducting-electronic-surveillance-in-attempt-to-clampdown-on-bitcoin-tax-crime/

  • US Central Bank Has Serious Concerns About Facebook's Cryptocurrency Libra [Forum Post] https://www.cnet.com/news/us-central-bank-has-serious-concerns-about-facebooks-cryptocurrency-libra-report-says/ ummm.. yeah? This project sets off every alarm bell there is, especially for those of use who have been crypto enthusiasts from the beginning. There are lots of people saying Libra is great for adoption etc but it is not good for adoption of real crypto. Like some other people have said on this forum, Libra is just diverting traffic off of the crypto highway and circling it back around to banks. "While the project's sponsors hold out the possibility of public benefits, including improved financial access for consumers, Libra raises many serious concerns regarding privacy, money laundering, consumer protection and financial stability,"

  • Will all countries eventually digitize their currencies? [Forum Post] The end of paper money will happen for sure. Most of us already use debit cards for most purchases. But there is a bigger shift on the way, with central banks issuing national cryptos side by side with fiat, which will likely phase out fiat eventually. There are plenty of examples of this type of thing historically as monetary instruments become obsolete or transform with technology. The article below has more info on all this. The 'Banker's Bank' (BIS) in Switzerland is already seeing this trend with central bankers. https://qz.com/1655896/facebooks-libra-forces-central-banks-to-tackle-cryptocurrencies/

  • Without being asset-backed, has Bitcoin become an casino run by whales? [Forum Post] I've been watching bitcoin for a long time now, and every rally and decline seems to be outed as manipulation by whales who can move $100 million or more in a day. Makes me think the average investor, with no opportunity to base decisions on real-world factors, is just basically rolling the dice with bitcoin. The house advantages in Vegas are: Roulette: 5.26% Craps: up to 16% Blackjack: 1% or less if player knows basic strategy I think the odds in Vegas are similar to, if not better than gambling on Bitcoin -- the 'house' in the case of Bitcoin being powerful manipulators of the currency. Curious what you guys think.

  • 3rd Option to Accreditation or Non-Accrediation [Forum Post] Thought I would as the community here the ChainBLX team about possibly adding a 3rd option to white paper accreditation. It would be for white papers that the community judges to have merit and good intentions, but is incomplete or otherwise inadequate for full accreditation. It could be called an Community Invitation to Resubmit (CIR) or something like that?

  • 4 Big Reasons Bitcoin's Price Will Probably Not Stop at $20k This Time [Forum Post] https://cointelegraph.com/news/4-big-reasons-bitcoins-price-will-probably-not-stop-at-20k-this-time **Some good arguments here:** **1) Institutional investment is driving it, not retail.** "In fact, the number of Google searches for “bitcoin” is only around 10% of what they were in 2017. In other words, retail investor FOMO has not even started yet," **2) Network fundamentals better than ever. ** "Bitcoin is more secure than ever and would require an unfathomable amount of computing power to affect the network." ** 3) Bitcoin reward halving is still 11 months away. ** "This is when mining block rewards will be cut from 12.5 to 6.25 BTC, thus reducing the bitcoins minted by miners who are naturally market sellers." **4) The bigger macroeconomic picture.** "...'hodlers' are confident that bitcoin — with its fixed supply — will outperform fiat currencies, whose supply is growing at an accelerating pace over the long term."

  • General points concerning Whitepapers and Business plans [Forum Post] We were asked last week from multiple people to give some general advice. Here it is: All of these points can be included, you could choose to only use some if you like. It depends on your business plan or whitepaper. This is just a summary of possible items you can include within your document in no specific order. In General, be careful with statements which are based on limited research on your part. For example, “we are the first company to do this.” This statement is dangerous, it is not possible for you to conduct such a diligent search to know that there is another company which is doing something similar or the same ( e.g. probably some company in another country does the same and you did not catch it as the information is provided in a foreign language). If some statement like this would be found, it could lead to full release of the bounty. Only say you guarantee something if it is true. If so, please provide examples or evidence with the guarantee. An example of a situation like this is that you make a guarantee that 10 million will be given, backed by insurance, to investors if the CEO dies. Also it is given that forward looking statements are based on assumptions. It is much safer to write “we aim” or “our goal is to reach 10%” instead of an absolute statement like “we will”. It is good practice in business plan to not rely on your own research but as well on 3rd party research. You must mention where you got this research. It will increase credibility and show that you can provide references. All in all, please be honest. You want trust, trust is built by being transparent. When people find out a secret or wrongdoing, trust is dramatically reduced. If a pattern of this behavior is found, claims can be filed. Description of ownership or contractual relationships necessary for different parts of the business models • Proof of ownership for all assets involved • Proof of licensing, right use if third party assets are involved (exclusive, non-exclusive use duration) Legal requirements and proof of compliance. • Type of enterprise (LLC, INC, etc.) • Exemption filing for capital raise or other necessary documents • Necessary certification (if not obtained proof of filing to obtain such certification or any other proof that shows that the certifications are currently in pursuit Competitive analysis • What sets your business apart • What is the market size/s (proof with links) • Who are the competitors Firms operational structure • Who is doing what and prove that they are able to-do so • Prove that those people mentioned are on board Use of funds • For what the money is used in detail • What is the deadline for funding • What happens if some money is not obtained in a timely manner • Provable milestones to release more money. How do you intend to prove that the milestone was met Disclosure of all risks and how you try to mitigate the risk Marketing plan • How is your brand setting itself apart? • How is the distribution chain controlled to the end user? • What are the steps to market and foster business relationships? o Method of approach, direct sale, conferences (including schedule and cost ) o Website and social marketing (legal regulations in marketing product) How your firm is using technology to gain competitive advantage ? Management Team • Track record (past successes) • Command structure and ownership • References Finances • Hard cash invested provable if necessary through bank statements. We don’t expect you to publish your bank statements. • Past revenue numbers provable through bank statements or tax returns • Compensation of executives and major employees • Financial forecast (detailed description of the methodology used ( stated what is an assumption what is backed up through public available data ) • How and when will the investor get paid • Rights of the investor (to control compensation of other owners and rules against future dilution of the investors property) This list is only indication of what a business plan would be beneficial to include but there is also other information which would be good to include. These are just tips, you could include more or other points. It is up to discussion if you think there are other items that should be mentioned in business plans, please reply with those items.
