I Got Scammed by the Cryptocurrency Exchange EZBTC.CA

I wanted to make this post of my experience as a warning to others, especially Canadians as they have limited buying options when investing (speculating) into cryptocurrencies. I understand the subject of cryptocurrencies are polarizing to many, but nonetheless, it's an emerging asset class that deserves discussion because there are many ways to lose your funds. This isn't the fault of cryptocurrencies themselves, but the result of user error, outright scams, social engineering, hacks, or in my case not being up-to-date on current events.

There are many scams in cryptocurrencies, but shady exchanges are a classic dating back to the legendary Mt. Gox hack where 850,000 Bitcoins were stolen (worth approximately $4.6 billion at the time of this writing). Or the most recent Canadian QuadrigaCX exchange hack where the CEO allegedly died in India carrying the only private key to 200 million worth of customer funds.

It seems that exchange hacks keep propping up in the news, so why then do they keep happening even in 2019? Because users are left with limited choices if they want to acquire cryptocurrency in the safest (ironic) and most convenient manner. In order to buy cryptocurrency, you first have to exchange it for fiat currency (USD, CAD, EUR). You could buy cryptocurrency from one of those Bitcoin ATMs you see at the mall but the fees are exorbitant and quite a few require ID as it is, so why not just sign up for an exchange instead? The next option is to buy them peer-to-peer in person for cash, but people feel unsafe dealing with strangers and large amounts of money. Further, liquidity would be an issue. This led to a boom of many cryptocurrency exchanges offering customers a place to buy and sell with the exchanges acting as the middle-man between users.

I've been away from cryptocurrency for a while and only came back recently. I've used the EZBTC exchange in the past without issues and decided I would use them again. What I didn't do upon my return was my homework on any updates/news regarding this exchange which resulted in my ordeal now. I noticed the website had an overhaul that now includes an express option for you to receive faster withdrawals if you deposited larger amounts (first red flag). I opted for the regular option I always used in the past and sent a small amount via eTransfer that was deposited in my account almost immediately (second red flag). In the past, my eTransfers regardless of amount took some time and up to many hours. Nonetheless, I made a purchase and initiated a withdrawal request that still hasn't been sent out to this day, and I am not the only one.

A condensed version of my story is that I got worried about my pending withdrawal with EZBTC and my emails/calls went unanswered. The live chat on their website was also disabled. I decided to tweet my situation to @ezBtcCanada and immediately got an email from the owner David Smillie himself urgently telling me to call him on a personal number. He deverified and suspended my account as a result of my tweets @tokenflair for "security reasons". After some talk (me saying I'll delete the tweets) he immediately reactivated and reverified my account again and said that my withdrawal will be taken care of the next day.

Fast forward to the next day and my withdrawal is still pending. Calls/texts/email go unanswered again. Live chat is still disabled. I proceed to send another tweet instead. Like clockwork, I get a response from David shortly after and he was livid. He threatened to sue me for defamation if I continued posting about my situation on public forums. I told him I'll be waiting for his letter. He stated that my account would be receiving a lifetime ban and I will not be receiving my withdrawal but I would get an eTransfer refund in 30 days, and all this information would be included in an email I was supposed to receive on Monday April 22, 2019. I still have not received any such email, and my emails/call/texts to him are again being ignored. The saga continues.

The most important piece of advice I can give when it comes to cryptocurrency is that what's true today, is not true tomorrow. You must stay up-to-date on current events in cryptocurrency because your investment could be at stake. In my case, EZBTC was exhibiting red flags and had many user complaints that I would have seen had I just done some research prior to sending my money. I was not up-to-date regarding the status of this "exchange".

2 days ago Reddit let us know that someone had stolen our Bitcoin sign and placed it somewhere super sketchy. Thank you Reddit! We successfully recovered the sign!

Link to original post.
On September 30th, 2019, it was brought to our attention that our Bitcoin ATM signage was stolen from our 1310 Bloor St West location. Thanks to the dedicated cryptocurrency community in Toronto and Reddit, we were alerted that the sign was potentially being used to advertise a location not affiliated with us.
The location and its appearance were in no way representative of Localcoin’s brand and safety standards. We take the security and safety of our community very seriously, which is why we immediately dispatched our field team to locate and remove the sign.
It has been our goal from the beginning to make cryptocurrency accessible and safe for the communities we serve. We are working closely with the authorities to ensure issues such as these do not arise again.
We are proactively taking steps to make sure that the cryptocurrency community stays a welcoming environment. This is why we will be removing all A-frame signs from our locations across the city. While these signs were a great way to spread awareness of Bitcoin, public safety will and must always come first to us.
We heavily recommend that the public confirm the address of any of our Bitcoin ATM locations prior to heading out to ensure their destination is an official Localcoin ATM.

For reference, here is a list of our official means of communication:
Websites
App
Social Media

We would like to once again thank the cryptocurrency community for informing us of this issue. Questions and concerns can all be forwarded to [email protected] where we actively monitor communications.

Maybe a bit of comfort for anyone who is really concerned

I will post from it solely for the sake of getting this out, don't think it'll help much, but may be a bit.

I have been around (crypto) since 2013, and at that time I was in Vancouver when the first Bitcoin ATM in Canada, as well as one of the first in the world - was installed in the waves atm. I bought some bitcoin for dirt cheap back then, which is long since sold and invested into other things. I met some very interesting people at the ATM though, and made friends quick.

Soon I was invited to check out the Bitcoin Co-Op. A local spot with a bunch of enthusiasts. One of them was Gerry, Gerald Cotten - the one maaaany of you seem to have many theories on. Gerry was a young kid, maybe 19 or early 20s. Skinny, white, no muscle, but good enough looking dude with big wavy hair. Him and Michael - can't remember his last name, were working on Quadriga. Until this time, Gerry was a serial coder making a lot of different portal sites, one of which he was proud of was "cruise dude" a site with a bunch of tips on how to get deals on cruises, smuggle booze in through gift wrapped presents, etc... he made about $60 cad a month on this site.

Gerry also had some odd health issues, He would have to travel back for doctors appointments and treatments when abroad. I never knew much and never asked, because we werent that close. Just acquanitinces within the community.

Soon, Quadriga was launched. I was using CaVirtex - which was THE behemoth Canadian exchange at the time, and then Vault of Satoshi a toronto based exchange that was sooooo soooo good. Well, I put a couple bucks on Quadriga, and was one of their first clients. I've seen exchanges COME and GO over the years, and ALL the exchanges people thought would be around forever (btc-e namely) - have come and gone.

Quadriga I always trusted, and never had an issue with. Recently Ive been travelling, and only really had some loose thumbs on this reddit to see all this shit unfold. I've got some cash on there, not a ton - but enough its gonna sting if I lose it. Yeah, I'm a bit worried.

Moral of this post is that his health issues were real. Michael did depart several years ago, and Gerry and whoever the Quadriga team is have ran this exchange. Now that Gerry is gone, and I know no one who is at the helm - there is definitely cause for concern. Quadriga is likely contemplating the recoupment of trust after all this shit has went done, but they have been and could continue to be one of the premier and early days trusted Canadian exchanges. The amount of money they made and make in fees is insane, and the team would be silly to throw that all away. My gut tells me this could fall apart, but my hope tells me its too good for them to do that, and they will fix it. Its just gonna take time.

SO - best thing to do? Treat all your money / crypto on or with Quadriga right now EXACTLY as you should be treating your money in crypto "like it's money I can afford to lose / already consider lost" - it's an investment. If it goes 100% south you know in your head thats a risk you were already willing to take.

So unplug your worries, go do something else with your life and keep a distant eye on this for news or withdrawals to show up. The times I forgot about my crypto and left it, were the best. The times I kept an eye on it every day, caused the most stress and the most stupid moves.

Alright, just wanted to post that and you guys can do what you like. Peace out!

I Got Scammed by the Cryptocurrency Exchange EZBTC.CA

I wanted to make this post of my experience as a warning to others, especially Canadians as they have limited buying options when investing (speculating) into cryptocurrencies.

As of now UCASH is an ERC20 token, however UCASH is bringing something very unique to the blockchain space. U.CASH will integrate other blockchains by creating a pegged number of tokens for each blockchain represented. The total supply of pegged tokens created, across all blockchains, will equal to the token supply created from the IBO via a 1:1 pegging mechanism. .Being blockchain agnostic and inclusive allows the U.CASH ecosystem to be independent of any one blockchain implementation, and also allows all of them to be accessed and used whenever beneficial, or required by its users.
To know more about UCASH, we request all existing and new users to read our white paper, which is available in 12+ languages, and join our telegram channel(s).
Current Status: Our Initial Bounty Offering (IBO) concluded on Jan 8th and all of our users can view their UCASH balance in our web portal (http://portal.u.cash). We already have support of one of the leading multiple-currency wallets (Jaxx) and you can withdraw UCASH to Jaxx or to MyEtherWallet (MEW). UCASH is currently listed on one exchange, with more to come soon.
As of now, the following features have been enabled on our portal: - Verify account - Users can send UCASH to one another via the portal - Users can withdraw UCASH to a wallet or send to an exchange - Store UCASH securely on the platform - Send and receive Bitcoin - Walk into a Converter retail location and carry out basic services of the platform including verification. (Currently available in Toronto, Canada, with more locations to come.)
We will enable/improve the following services in the near future:
We recently had the option of users completing different bounties (Eg: Whitepaper translation) and have disabled the bounties section at the moment. We will soon be enabling a number of bounties. - Listing on more exchanges and support on different wallets. - Conversion of Bitcoin to UCASH and vice-versa - Faster withdrawals to personal wallets - Signing up additional storefront converter locations and individual converters in North America, Vietnam, and India, in compliance with local laws. - We are ramping up our team in India and Canada and we will publish available opportunities. - Onboarding new users by targeting different user communities and geographic regions. - Revamp of the UI/UX of the UCASH Portal. A detailed history of UCASH and future growth plan is available at: https://u.cash/growthplan (We will be updating this soon as well as on an ongoing basis).
UCASH has been one of the most widely distributed blockchain tokens with more than 200,000 user signups. We take pride in the fact that majority of our users are new to blockchain and UCASH is first token that they are holding. Due to our innovative bounty program, they didn't have to spend bitcoin or ether to receive UCASH.
We acknowledge that currently, wallet withdrawals are taking longer than we (and users!) would like. The current system is backlogged by both the massive influx of legitimate users as well as people attempting to exploit the bounty system. We are committed to securing the UCASH network and protecting our community. Unfortunately, these bad actors have caused delays for everyone. We are hiring additional support personnel and will further automate the withdrawal process, which will continue to decrease wait times.
Recent Events: Now, let's talk about the unexpected price fluctuations in the UCASH token. We at U.CASH will continue to focus on building a high quality technology product, signing up new partnerships, and onboarding new users as well as improving on customer support. Price movements of tokens, as many of you who are experienced in the crypto space are aware, are influenced by a wide variety of factors. We have had a massive surge in interest from around the world and no doubt that has contributed to some of these movements.
However, we take this unexpected global interest positively and are trying our best to reply to each user request individually. Our global rank on the top web-ranking platforms is at an all-time high with SimilarWeb ranking us at 48,842 and Alexa ranking us at 61,839! The greatest interest for UCASH is from Vietnam, India, Russia and Indonesia.
As stated, we will continue to focus our efforts on the long term. U.CASH is here to stay.
Today has been just another Monday in UCASH office, except for the exponential increase in requests on social media, influx of new users, and inquiries from press.
We would like to thank all of our users and benefactors, whether they have been with us for months or only days. You have shown tremendous patience, interest, and passion. We would also request anyone trying to spread FUD to read the white paper, signup, check out the platform, follow us on social media, and ask questions on telegram.
This is just the beginning of our ambitious plans to empower our users and enable access to vital financial services around the world. Thanks again to all our supporters!

Learn all about ICO avenues and opportunities, plug into the world of trading cryptocurrency markets, become an expert in scam projects, promoting ICOs and STOs, launching your own campaigns and many more! What are the different cryptocurrency regulations in major countries? Find the answer after reading this article.
Cryptocurrency Regulations across Major Countries
Cryptocurrency and the blockchain industry may seem sufficiently exciting and attractive to you now. After all, you are taking the time and effort to study this course. You may be planning to work in cryptocurrency and the blockchain industry. Of course, we want to encourage you and help you proceed toward your goal. But it is also important you understand the regulations guiding the blockchain industry to help keep yourself out of trouble.
This year, in particular, seems to be the year in which a lot of countries are looking to finally coalesce the regulations relating to the blockchain industry into a workable legal framework. Some countries are more accommodating to cryptocurrency and blockchain technological innovations while others are still more cautious. We will examine how each major country is forming their own regulatory framework for the blockchain industry.
Canada
Cryptocurrencies are not considered legal tender in Canada. This was clearly expressed by the country’s Financial Consumer Agency (FCA). Canada, like the US, has yet to clearly define or legislate a framework surrounding cryptocurrencies. But Canada still appears to be among the most transparent of countries for the nation’s interpretation and enforcement of the law surrounding cryptocurrencies (aside from Switzerland). For the time being, Canada has clearly stated its reluctance to adopt cryptocurrency as a legal tender, due to its high volatility. “ “The United States of America (USA)
There are certain laws regarding transactions in virtual currency in the US today but there is still no comprehensive legal framework. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission currently regulates virtual currencies as commodities. The CFTC is the first US regulator to allow for public cryptocurrency trading. The Securities and Exchange Commission requires registration of any virtual currency traded in the US if it is classified as a security (e.g. by the Howey test).
The regulatory authorities have not yet formulated or offered a coherent framework for regulations regarding cryptocurrencies. Typical of most legislators and regulatory agencies in the US, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has intensified its focus on the pressing need for comprehensive regulation. And it seems everyone is waiting for the right catalyst to coalesce into a usable set of legal guidelines that can protect the investing public and also allow for blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation as well.
If cryptocurrency becomes a form of legal tender in the US, there will likely be stringent laws on its use. However, if cryptocurrency is treated like a security, cryptocurrencies would be regulated under securities law as interpreted by the SEC. Present securities laws place a large number of limitations on who is able to buy securities, how they are traded, and how to ensure transparency in the flow of information relevant to investors. Also note that non-US investors may experience their own difficulties getting a license to trade cryptocurrencies in the country. “ “Japan
Japan has always been one of the most positive and forward-thinking nations regarding cryptocurrencies and the blockchain. Of course, they were cautious at first, and they knew no more than anyone else in government, which means they literally knew nothing. But they took time to research, learn, and develop an approach to regulate the industry without killing it. The official policy is clear: Protect the public interest, but also encourage the growth of the industry with a legal framework that allows for innovation in blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
China
The situation in China is a sad one. The country has been taking increasingly strict actions to discourage and outlaw any activity related to the blockchain industry. China has banned ICOs, frozen all accounts associated with cryptocurrency, stopped bitcoin miners and even ordered a nationwide ban on all forms of cryptocurrency trading.
China has the strictest laws against cryptocurrency. Yet, despite that fact, as of 2017, 50% of the world’s mining population was from China! If you are involved with the cryptocurrency industry it is strongly advised to stay away from China, and avoid transactions with Chinese business because of the unpredictable and negative legal framework.
“ “The United Kingdom & European Union
Brexit is scheduled to take place in March 2019, yet the UK and the EU still remain united in their regulatory attitude toward cryptocurrencies. There are also reports that the UK and EU are planning to end anonymity for cryptocurrency traders.
The UK and EU are both trying to control all the scams and frauds. They are working with cryptocurrency platforms to stop or at least report all suspicious transactions. This adds a degree of regulatory burden on the exchanges as well as increasing the associated compliance costs. Cryptocurrencies are extremely volatile. They are a high-risk investment. Governments across Europe are greatly concerned about the possibility of both retail and sophisticated investors losing a lot of money.
This has led to a situation similar to that in the US. The regulatory authorities have not yet formulated or offered a coherent framework for regulations regarding cryptocurrencies. There is an intense focus on the pressing need for comprehensive regulation. And everyone is waiting for the right catalyst to coalesce into a usable set of legal guidelines that can protect the investing public and allow for blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation as well. We certainly hope for intelligent and effective legislation from all the major countries. “ “Accommodating & Unaccommodating Countries
Below is a list of countries we have not specifically covered, but they have each taken an active position on a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies. The following countries are either supportive or at least neutral toward cryptocurrencies:
-Switzerland. -Australia. -Nigeria. -Ghana. -South Africa. -Singapore.
Countries with the most stringent and negative cryptocurrency regulation:
-Venezuela. -South Korea. -India. -Russia.
Did you know?
It is not uncommon to see Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency ATMs throughout Japan.
Exchange robberies and hacks like MtGox, and the recent loss of $530 million NEM coins have led to serious debate in the Japanese government. The industry needs to provide a secure and manageable solution to these problems. Voluntary self-regulation and close cooperation with regulatory authorities is the most favored solution. It seems the regulators are working hard behind the scenes right now leading the industry in the desired direction in typical Japanese fashion. “ “Blockchain Industry Regulations in the USA
Based on the information received from the Columbia Science and Technology Law Review, there was a variety of responses from different government bodies about blockchain regulations. The regulators responses ranged from indifference to suspicion, and to positive expectation and excitement.
The US government has tremendous constitutional power to regulate business and industry, including of course the blockchain industry if it so desires. But basically, the federal government has been relatively indifferent and has even refused to speak on blockchain regulations despite the interest of various federal agencies. As of 2017, eight states in the US were working on bills promoting the use of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies. It is even reported that a few states have actually begun the final steps before voting and passing legislation into law.
On April 3, 2018 Arizona introduced a law allowing corporations to hold and share data on the blockchain. The governor, Doug Ducey, put forward the legislation after the state began accepting signatures and smart contracts recorded on the blockchain as legally valid documentation. In 2017, Delaware was the first state to pass legislation allowing for shares of stocks to be legally traded on the blockchain.
Other notable developments have occurred in the US at the state or local level. Vermont makes use of blockchain as evidence in trials. Chicago uses blockchain to maintain real estate records. New York is currently evaluating four bills for the application of data storage on the blockchain. “ ” Blockchain Regulations in Europe
The entire European Union has approached blockchain with a positive and welcoming attitude. The EU has taken the position that they want to actively encourage innovation. This philosophy could support the development of cryptocurrencies in two ways:
-Encouraging the exploration of uses testing the impact and effect of the laws in a way that allows for a more finely-tuned and sophisticated understanding for all parties involved.
-Giving entrepreneurs the confidence that their target markets will be more trusting of their solution since they are operating with the explicit legal support of the state.
This approach, along with the EU’s scope as the regulator of 28 different countries, will encourage growth across the entire crypto ecosystem, and may end up transforming Europe into one of the most desirable destinations for blockchain development. Entrepreneurs are likely to move to the EU bloc to access the rich vein of available talent, as well as the positive and supportive laws.
The EU has actually disclosed through its executive arm that it is working on the use of blockchain for distributed ledger based projects. EU officials have constantly stated they are looking for ways to support more innovation with distributed ledger technology. The European Commission said it was “”actively monitoring Blockchain and DLT developments”” and has work in progress to explore “”DLT benefits and challenges as well as fields for application in financial services””.
The official press release stated that the commission clearly wants to “”pilot projects to foster decentralized innovation ecosystems and help reshape interactions between consumers, producers, creators and among citizens, businesses and administrations to the end benefit of society””. “ “Blockchain Regulations in Europe §2
Switzerland has gradually become the favored hub for cryptocurrency and blockchain development in Europe. This position has been enhanced through a Swiss non-profit blockchain and cryptographic technology ecosystem known as the Crypto Valley Association.
The Crypto Valley Association has begun working on the development of an ICO Code of Conduct to take advantage of the ban imposed by China on token crowd sales. They are hoping to capture the Chinese and Asian entrepreneurs searching for a new home.
Other countries are not as accepting of this new DLT technology and have even gone as far as classifying it as illegal and immoral behavior. There have been hyperbolic concerns most notably from China that cryptocurrencies will destabilize world financial markets.
There are various pilot projects and efforts to prove the benefits of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain industry currently being tested all across Europe. Yet even now they are barely scratching the surface of the full potential of the blockchain.
Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Citizens of countries all over the world have varying attitudes about cryptocurrency. These attitudes and sentiments can be very significant to the future adoption of cryptocurrencies because politicians and regulators tend to act in consideration of the collective opinion of the public. Some countries were more accommodating at first but then became stricter, despite positive public interest, basically saying they are still not sure about the possible consequences and benefits of the technology. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Estonia
Surprisingly enough this small Baltic nation has gained a reputation for being quick to accept technological innovation. Estonia has a tech-friendly government eager to accommodate the innovative use of cryptocurrency in fields ranging from blockchain technology for healthcare and banking services; and even granting citizens the right to become what is known as “e-Residents”.
As e-Residents, Estonian citizens and businesses are provided with digital business authentication. It is also one of the first countries to employ the use of a blockchain-based e-voting service that enabled people to become shareholders of NASDAQ’s Tallinn Stock Exchange.
This fascinating and highly innovative country is now host to a number of Bitcoin ATMs and startups, like Paxful. They are cryptocurrency friendly, and cryptocurrency user friendly as well. Estonia also has highest internet penetration rates in the world.
Estonia may be a fine place to consider basing your ICO due to the friendly legal and regulatory environment.
This and a lot more you can learn on our website: www.ubai.co! “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
The United States of America
The USA is the world’s dominant superpower, and it should come as no surprise that it has the highest number of cryptocurrency users in the world. It also has the highest bitcoin trading volume and the highest number of bitcoin ATMs.
Powered by Silicon Valley, which is home to a lot of cryptocurrency and blockchain startups, the US stands at the forefront of all things relating to cryptocurrency worldwide. Many other nations are planning to follow the US lead concerning cryptocurrency regulations. This means the USA will serve as the testing ground for cryptocurrency and crypto-regulation in the years to come. This is likely where the future regulatory framework will take shape.
Bitcoin in particular has shown massive growth in the US. This can only be interpreted as a strong tailwind for a positive regulatory environment because the population at large supports blockchain technology.
For the moment, due to regulatory paralysis and the resultant legal vacuum, ICOs are strongly advised against raising funds or basing operations in the US. The SEC has been particularly strict in its enforcement of securities and investment law which require an ICO to do an oppressive amount of compliance work. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Denmark
When it comes to technological advancements and the standard of living of its citizens, Denmark is among the world leaders. It is considered one of the most developed countries in the world. It is also at the forefront of countries looking to reduce the use of cash money and advance to the use of 100% digital currency. As such, sentiment among the general public and political sphere actively supports the adoption of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. The only question left is which particular cryptocurrency system to adopt. It is still unclear whether bitcoin is the one, or BTC will mainly just be accepted as a means of exchange. There are also discussions in Denmark about when to redesign its national financial system; this would be a “world first”, and a radical leap forward for cryptocurrencies.
Another fascinating thing is that the Danish Central Bank has declared BTC as a non-currency; meaning its use is not subject to the country’s currency regulations. Some of the top bitcoin startups and exchanges such as CCDEK have their foundations in Denmark.
With its open market and encouraging regulatory framework, Denmark might very well rival Switzerland in Western Europe for the position of the continent’s preeminent ICO and blockchain industry hub. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Sweden
Sweden is quite similar to Denmark, for its social and demographic climate, and also for the government’s desire to eliminate cash. The Swedish Riksbank recently introduced negative interest rates. This can cause a spike in the demand for coins in the near future as citizens look for the best way to preserve their wealth. Negative interest rates like we have seen in Europe and Japan also, actively corrode savers’ wealth because people are actually paying a percentage of their savings to the central bank to hold their cash, in addition to losing out to inflation at the same time.
Sweden has taken the boldest step yet in all of continental Europe to legalize cryptocurrency. The country legalized the use of BTC and other cryptocurrencies as a means of payment by official public declaration. It is however expected that exchanges should file for a license in accordance with AML/CTF and KYC regulations.
Sweden is also home to a number of cryptocurrency startups such as the Safello Bitcoin exchange, and Stockholm-based KnCMiner. The gradually increasing trading volume of cryptocurrency has been a good indicator of the country’s appreciating demand for cryptocurrencies. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
The Netherlands
The Netherlands is quite fascinating in its own right. How can a country not be referred to as Bitcoin-friendly when it can boast about having its own “Bitcoin City”? There are over 100 merchants that sell goods that can be purchased with cryptocurrency in Bitcoin City.
There are no regulations restricting the use of BTC in the Netherlands under the Act on Financial Supervision of the Netherlands. This explains why a lot of startups, BTC ATMs, and even a Bitcoin Embassy can be found in the heart of Amsterdam (the capital of Netherlands).
The friendly climate for cryptocurrency has led to a lot of very active bitcoin communities across the nation hosting regular meetups and other events. The country’s banking sector has been looking to incorporate BTC and blockchain to reduce costs and improve banking technology. The Netherlands is also a popular location for many important bitcoin conferences and bitcoin companies such as BitPay.
The Netherlands is increasingly becoming a prominent place for ICOs and blockchain related businesses to base their operations. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Finland
Well-known as the home of Nokia, Finland has constantly been at the forefront of technological innovation, just like its other Scandinavian neighbors. The Finnish Central Board of Taxes (CBT) has even gone as far as classifying bitcoin as a financial service, exempting it and cryptocurrency purchases from the VAT. What more could be better for Bitcoin?
Finland also boasts a significant number of BTC ATMs despite its small population. The capital of Helsinki alone is reported to have 10 ATMs for BTC. The country is also home to top exchanges such as FinCCX and Bittiraha.fi. As of January 2016, the most expensive bitcoin sale took place in Finland. It involved the sale of a Tesla Model S worth over €140,000 at Auto-Outlet Helsinki Oy.
Canada
Canada is home to a variety of bitcoin startups and ATMs. It is considered to be more favorable toward cryptocurrencies than the USA. The country has two cities on its eastern and western coasts, Toronto and Vancouver, that are recognized as “Bitcoin hubs”.
Canada has a vibrant cryptocurrency community and is home to startups such as Decentral, the Vanbex Group and a large number of merchants who accept cryptocurrencies as payment. Vancouver is known to have over 20 ATMs while Toronto is well-known for holding large cryptocurrency conferences.
There has been constant growth in cryptocurrency trading volume in the country. Canada might be the best location in North America to base an ICO or operate a blockchain business due to its supportive regulatory environment and a rich ecosystem for cryptocurrency, with human talent, ATMs and other tools, etc. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
United Kingdom
The UK is one of the absolute top financial hubs in the world. It is also a center of innovation. There are a large number of bitcoin and blockchain related startups, BTMs and active communities. All of the previously listed crypto-friendly features make the UK a very desirable environment for bitcoin. The UK has identified the inevitable need for a new payment solution and is gradually bracing itself for a widespread adoption of cryptocurrency in the future. There are even a few local pubs that accept BTC as a means of payment.
It is also interesting to note that the Bank of England has been closely monitoring bitcoin technology and has requested ideas from citizens on the improvement of its monetary system. Bitcoin is presently seen as “private money” where VAT is imposed from suppliers of goods and services that accept cryptocurrency as payment. Profits and losses incurred from cryptocurrency trading are also subject to capital gains tax, just as in the US.
In the UK, it has become increasingly clear that BTC can be part of a bigger story, and the trading volume indicates steady growth. There are not clear laws against cryptocurrencies at the present time. But the lack of regulatory momentum suggests we may see more positive developments soon. One thing to keep in mind, while the Brexit is still in progress, the British government may be more likely to legislate on non-core issues. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Australia
The major banks in Australia have been quite hostile toward bitcoin, but at least the country has removed the burden of “double taxation” on cryptocurrency. This was good news to the local business community because blockchain startups had begun to leave the country as a direct result of unfavorable taxation and closure of bank accounts.
The use of BTC still remains unregulated, there is no law or regulation restricting the use of cryptocurrencies by Australian citizens. Cryptocurrencies are regarded as a form of property in Australia, and purchases with BTC, for example, are referred to as “barter”.
The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), you will remember, is transitioning its CHESS verification system to a blockchain solution that should go live at the beginning of 2019. Cryptocurrencies in Australia are seen a lot like they are in the US. Topics like the imposition of capital gains tax, concern about securities law, the legal debate about using cryptocurrency as payment for goods and services, etc., are all problematic for regulators. While the general population is quite comfortable and supportive of cryptocurrencies and blockchain solutions, at the present it is not a high priority for the government to legislate or regulate. “ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Tax is of course one of the most important factors in financial matters on both a personal and corporate level. Taxes greatly influence investment decisions and returns, regardless of industry or size. It is one of the first things every individual or group considers before investing. Notably, in Australia and the USA, cryptocurrency gains are treated as capital gains and taxed at up to 50% of the return.
Some countries have low cryptocurrency taxes specifically to encourage the blockchain industry. By offering a more competitive tax rate, countries are implicitly supporting cryptocurrency and actively trying to offer a better return profile than other countries. We will discuss the different taxation regimes in a wide range of countries so you can ascertain the financial advantages and disadvantages of a variety of locations.
Belarus
Belarus charges 0% in taxation until 2023. That exemption is specifically for cryptocurrency exchanges and transactions. This has been done to help Belarus build a special economic zone, referred to as ‘HTP Belarus’. Their goal is to have an economic zone strong enough to compete with the likes of Silicon Valley.
The government of Belarus has also declared smart contracts as legal documents. Anyone looking to set up a blockchain company or a cryptocurrency startup should seriously consider Belarus. It has a supportive regulatory and legal environment which actively encourages the blockchain industry and does not impose punitive taxes upon those inside the industry.
“ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Portugal
Any and all personal income received from cryptocurrency transactions is tax-free in Portugal at the present moment. Income from cryptocurrency trading is categorized as something legally different from traditional income or capital gains.
The Portuguese government stated clearly that any kind of sale of cryptocurrency does not fall under capital income or capital gain. If an individual is however found to be carrying out professional activity, or any business activity related to cryptocurrencies, that is a different matter and such income will be subject to taxation.
From a personal perspective, Portugal is one of the leading countries where an individual can carry out their cryptocurrency transactions and enjoy a decent standard of living in the same country too. However, for ICO and Blockchain businesses it is not recommended to base your operations in Portugal.
China
China is famous the world over for being home to some of the largest cryptocurrency mines and many active cryptocurrency investors; yet at the same time China makes it illegal to conduct any cryptocurrency related business or investment.
But China still has an especially attractive environment for investors. Hong Kong runs on a policy of zero VAT or capital gains tax so it is easy to recommend you base your business there. Hong Kong also stands out as a major financial hub in the heart of Asia. “ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Netherlands
Actually, Netherlands was the first country to make use of a non-zero tax rate policy for cryptocurrencies. So, it may seem reasonable to expect a discouraging tax situation. But the fact is, Netherland’s tax policy is rather advantageous for cryptocurrency. They have a very simple, low-tax regime.
Cryptocurrency assets need to be declared with the total assets owned by an individual at the beginning of the year to assess their value. Cryptocurrency gains will be taxed at the highest tax bracket for capital income of just around 5%. The Netherlands is strongly recommended as a good country to work and live in, from both a personal and corporate perspective.
Germany
Germany is the economic center of the EU. This makes it a great place to start a cryptocurrency or blockchain company. Financial technology has been thriving there for more than ten years, and Germany has favorable cryptocurrency laws too.
Bitcoin and cryptocurrency assets have a 0% tax when used in making payments due to no VAT levied for making payments with BTC, because there is no “value added” through cryptocurrency as a fiscal product.
Germany offers a moderately compelling case for both blockchain business and individuals. While the tax rate on income at the company level is not competitive, the ability to pay for services in crypto as well as hold cryptocurrency assets and sell them at zero percent taxation rate is compelling. “ “Where to Base Your ICO
Let’s talk about the countries that are most accommodating with regard ICOs. Start-up ICO companies, like any company, essentially require three key principles for operation. The first is a sound legal and regulatory framework wherein the rule of law is preserved and business encouraged. The second is the ability to hire or acquire talented individuals to work at the firm. The third and final is the tax system and access to associated financial systems in order to allow the enterprise to succeed.
Estonia
This country is, perhaps surprisingly, widely referred to as the most digital society in the world. Estonians are known to be pathfinders deeply involved in setting up an efficient, secure, and transparent internet ecosystem.
The country ranks first when it comes to the number of ICOs per inhabitant. It has an incredibly supportive tax regime, actually among the most competitive in the world, as well as a deep pool of talent across all areas of the digital spectrum. Estonia offers possibly the most supportive and friendly regulatory and legal framework in the world for an ICO. This, in combination with a zero percent tax rate at both a personal and corporate level, combine to make Estonia one of the single most appealing locations from which you can launch and operate your ICO. “ “Where to Base Your ICO
Singapore
Singapore is another important regional hub in Asia for its strong rule of law as well as low taxation. The country offers one of the highest standards of living in the world. It is centrally located in the heart of Asia, so it easy to travel and recruit talent from surrounding countries. At the present there are not any specific regulations targeting the blockchain industry, but it is one of the world’s largest countries by funds raised for ICOs. It has a competitive tax regime in combination with strict AML and KYC. All of these factors make Singapore Asia’s leading location to launch and base an ICO.
The regulatory situation around the world may seem rather complicated. That is because it is. Laws and regulations are changing rapidly all over the world. And the regulatory framework is the most significant point of concern for a startup ICO. You should carefully study not only the current regulations surrounding your particular venture and how its tokenomics affects its classification, but you also need a reasonable sense of where the country is likely to be six months or a year later. Ideally you would base your ICO in a country that is supportive now, and all timeframes into the future with a competitive and legally sound tax system.
Where to Base Your ICO
Slovenia
Slovenia has recently transformed itself into the leading destination for blockchain technology in Europe. The government of Slovenia has placed a strong emphasis on the study of blockchain technology in public administration, and there has been an amazing success rate for ICOs in Slovenia. While the Slovenian government is a leader in terms of adopting cryptocurrencies, its rate of taxation is still considered quite high at 19%, even though that is still lower than other European countries. ICOs are considered to be normal business activities where you are taxed based on the funds received from an ICO less the expenses of doing business.
Switzerland
Switzerland is trying to remain relevant for the blockchain industry and for ICOs. The Swiss finance ministry is actively trying to attract investors to the country. Switzerland is considered a very important crypto location due to fact it was home to four of the largest ICOs in the world. The country is also very attractive to investors because of its friendly regulations and digital expertise. The taxation and regulatory environment is extremely secure and positive towards the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry in general.

Why I believe we're on the cusp of the 3rd great Bitcoin bubble

We've recovered from the last crash
You might think it's a bit early (based on the time frame for the last recovery), but things are looking a lot different than in 2011. I would suggest its because the last bubble popped prematurely due to Mt. Gox's failure of a trading engine.
Interest in buying Bitcoins has gone up to its highest point since the last bubble.
There's a similar spike in general interest. Partly helped along by the Silk Road news.
The network is being used at the same rate as during the last bubble.
The Bitcoin ATM story (see below) is causing Bitcoin to trend in Canada on Google (was #1 for a bit). The $27 story (see below) will almost certainly cause a large spike worldwide in Google trends once they're updated up to yesterday.
Lots and lots of new businesses now accept Bitcoins
One legitimate criticism of Bitcoin last year was the lack of places to spend them. We basically just had Alpaca Socks, Reddit and Wordpress, we've grown a lot since then!
Charities and others are taking donations
The first Bitcoin I ever spent was to donate to Wikileaks. More and more places are setting up Bitcoin donation buttons, because why not?
The $27 story is going massively viral
I think the attention this story is getting took a lot of us by surprise. We're thinking "of course if you bought Bitcoins in 2009 you're rich" and it didn't make much of a splash. But to the rest of the world it's a very novel and interesting story.
The first Bitcoin ATM has been installed
Easier way for people acquire Bitcoins with cash. Lots of free publicity. More machines are on their way and will generate more and more news.
Institutional money is coming
Afraid with the price at $200 that it will be hard to find enough moms and pops to keep money coming in faster than miners are selling? Don't be, there are individuals out there with a net worth higher than the entire Bitcoin ecosystem.
Interesting new developments
Cool things that didn't exist before the last bubble (as far as I remember).
Governments are explicitly saying it's not illegal
More and more governments are either saying Bitcoins are legitimate currency, or releasing guidelines for exchanges to comply with anti-money-laundering laws.
New generation of exchanges
Mt. Gox's terrible trading engine was a huge factor in the last crash. They couldn't keep up with all the new interest.
This time around there are more exchanges in more countries, and not a single point of liquidity.

Best way to convert CNY -> CAD?

I'll be coming back from China with ~ 40,000rmb ($8,000 CAD) and am weighing my options for conversion to Canadian dollars
Does anyone have advice or experience for doing this? My family will be coming to Shanghai and will help me carry back the money on the flight. These are some potential ideas:
-Convert at a bank (I have an account with TD who does CNY conversions, but I can't find their rate)
-Convert at a Toronto exchange (I've been reading online that their rates are better than banks)
-Buy Bitcoin in CNY then sell in CAD (I've been doing this over the last year but recent price fluctuations have turned me away from this method, costs about $10 per $1000 moved which is still not bad)
-Leave in my Chinese bank account and withdraw in Canada at a UnionPay ATM (daily limit of $2000 and ATM commission fee of $3-5 but their website says no exchange fee which could be a good deal)
EDIT
-Canadian bank exchange rates suck so don't use them!
-If you withdraw from an ATM that has the Union Pay logo using your China-issued debit card these are the fees...
Bank of China: 0.5% withdrawal amount (minimum 16rmb and maximum 50rmb)
Agricultural Bank of China: 1% of withdrawal amount + 12rmb service charge
Both banks have a 10,000rmb daily limit and 100,000rmb annual limit

Jaxx & Decentral - Introduction, and how we are working to improve the Monero ecosystem and infrastructure.

Hey there Monero peeps. I wanted to take the time to introduce Decentral, Jaxx (and myself) to the Monero community.
As some of you may know, last week Jaxx became closer involved with your community as we both announced Monero is iOS approved as well as our future plans for XMR wallet support across all 9 platforms that Jaxx supports. iOS mobile & iPad, Android mobile & tablet, Chrome & Firefox extensions and Mac / PC / Linux desktop.
Jaxx has been in the works for over a year and a half now and officially launched this past June. In a nutshell, the vision for Jaxx is to create a default blockchain interface that's made for the masses (including those non-technical folk like my Dad) that allows everyone to manage and be in full control or their digital assets, and done in a way that brings together and provides support for the global decentralized tech / blockchain communities we admire for providing choice and value to the world.
To achieve our vision we're shooting to:
Decentral is the parent company of Jaxx and is also a decentralized tech hub located in downtown Toronto. We are currently a team of around 20 full-time and contract staff. Decentral opened on New Year's day 2014 to provide a space where enthusiasts of decentralized tech could meet, work, and create cool shit. Since opening we believe Decentral has made some huge strides. We're proud to be the birthplace of The Decentral Project, Ethereum, Kryptokit, Rushwallet, Ethereumwallet.com, Jaxx, Decentral.tv, Decentral Consulting, Cointalk, C4, the world's 2nd Bitcoin ATM & Toronto's first (which is still running strong btw). We're also the first home to the Bitcoin Alliance of Canada, Toronto Ethereum Meetup, Toronto Bitcoin Meetup, & Toronto Techno Crypto. As well, our client list includes Toronto Stock Exchange, RBC Bank, Deloitte and many other small and large enterprise clients and start-ups.
To date Decentral has hosted over 115 events including The Canadian Bitcoin Expo 2014 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre & associated Hackathon where Amir Taaki's Dark Market (Open Bazaar) emerged. Along the way we have educated many thousands on the positive and potential benefits blockchain and decentralized technologies provide. We are approachable, visible, and community and business oriented. All traits we recognize to be very important the space we are in, and especially important in the blockchain wallet space, as let's face it, even though we don't "hold" customer funds, we are still responsible for the software they rely on to manage said funds, and in the future, we're hoping their entire digital lives.
Decentral has learned a lot developing wallets over the past 3 years. in 2013 we first emerged as Kryptokit, launching the first ever chrome extension bitcoin wallet. About a month later just as Kryptokit was taking flight, Vitalik Buterin showed be the whitepaper for Ethereum, I dropped everything and spent the next 12 months founding that project, while doing minimal work in the wallet space except for pushing out Rushwallet.com, our html5 bitcoin wallet that works across many different platforms and devices.
So, how will Jaxx be helping to build our the Monero ecosystem? Aside from XMR wallet support we are also building our also creating the full infrastructure and redundancy systems for tokens we carry. The ultimate plan in the future is for individual users to run and tap into their own nodes should they wish to do so. The more control can be pushed off to the individual / user, and the less you have to rely on us the better, we say.
This new Monero infrastructure we're developing, the first part of it which should be deployed when we launch is designed to source data from our multiple nodes as well as any others available. (in a round-robin fashion) and select the best most accurate info to display and use for sending transactions. We're also determining how this infrastructure can be used to assist the entire Monero ecosystem as the complete structure containing nodes, apis, and relay system is unique and unlike anything available right now for Monero. We developed this massive infrastructure project which is and will be available for all our supported tokens because we realized what was currently available (a miss-match of token specific services) wasn't allowing us to add new token support efficiently and synchronously.
Now a bit about myself. I am the CEO and founder of Decentral & Jaxx, co-founder of Ethereum and have lived in Toronto all my life. I've been an entrepreneur and design junkie for 20 years. Prior to full-time blockchain (2012) I owned a geothermal drilling company doing commercial projects for Ikea. I've been in tech all my life building computers since age 8 (1984), on BBSes since the 1200 baud modem days (late 80's), designing website in the early 90's. I invested in Bitcoin (2012), Litecoin (2013) and Ethereum (2013). I currently hold all three as well as Monero and Dash and ETC and am looking to expand my portfolio with some of the new groundbreaking technologies Decentral has been identifying. All projects I've done in this space are self-funded (aside from Ethereum of course, although I did bootstrap a large portion of the project before the crowdsale). I own 100% own my current projects and believe efficiencies and leadership are paramount to providing great products and services for the public.
Earlier this year I became (part-time) Chief Digital Officer at the Toronto Stock Exchange, (a position I've just resigned from) in order to focus full efforts on Jaxx and the soon to be announced new project. This role at TSX and work with others industry clients has really given myself and Decentral an inside on how the current systems operates. From these engagements we've realized we have an amazing team at Decentral that's able to map out current processes and industries (whether it be municipal services, health care systems, banking infrastructure, etc.) and provide roadmaps for how these systems can be modernized using technologies such as bitcoin and other disruptive (and usually) decentralized tech.
My personal goal it to provide products and choices that enables individuals to take control of their lives. I'm a voluntarist, meaning I believe all interactions between individuals and groups should be voluntary and uncoerced, and believe diplomacy and short-term sacrifices can lead to much greater longer term gains and execution of grand plans. I'm also a huge proponent of privacy and security.
Regarding Jaxx, Jaxx.io is our official site. There you'll find it a great resources ie FAQ and knowledge base and it's also the best way to get support for any of our products. Regarding support, Annie Lee leads that department and will be sure to help you with any tickets submitted once we launch our XMR integration. If you'd like to discuss potential business opportunities or integrations feel free to drop Rico Nassir a line at [email protected].
Please always make sure you downloading our products from trusted official app stores or from our SSL locked site Jaxx. We control the distribution of Jaxx tightly as to do our best to ensure there aren't malicious versions floating around the web or on app stores (more about this in a future post)
That's it for now as this has taken up half a Saturday to put together. One last thing I want to mention is how great it is to work with the Decentral and Jaxx team every day in our office in Toronto. We've got some rockstars in the house and nothing beats direct interaction on a daily basis with the team and this is why we are as efficient as we are, and why I believe as we grow we will continue to maintain our efficiencies and continue to push out great products and services.
Looking forward to working much closer with the Monero community. We've penciled in XMR release for early November. Keep in mind though, "penciled".
Cheers!

Best way to convert CNY -> CAD?

I'll be coming back from China with ~ 40,000rmb ($8,000 CAD) and am weighing my options for conversion to Canadian dollars
Does anyone have advice or experience for doing this? My family will be coming to Shanghai and will help me carry back the money on the flight. These are some potential ideas:
-Convert at a bank (I have an account with TD who does CNY conversions, but I can't find their rate)
-Convert at a Toronto exchange (I've been reading online that their rates are better than banks)
-Buy Bitcoin in CNY then sell in CAD (I've been doing this over the last year but recent price fluctuations have turned me away from this method, costs about $10 per $1000 moved which is still not bad)
-Leave in my Chinese bank account and withdraw in Canada at a UnionPay ATM (daily limit of $2000 and ATM commission fee of $3-5 but their website says no exchange fee which could be a good deal)
EDIT:
-Canadian bank exchange rates suck so don't use them!
-If you withdraw from an ATM that has the Union Pay logo using your China-issued debit card these are the fees...
Bank of China: 0.5% withdrawal amount (minimum 16rmb and maximum 50rmb)
Agricultural Bank of China: 1% of withdrawal amount + 12rmb service charge
Both banks have a 10,000rmb daily limit and 100,000rmb annual limit

Jaxx & Decentral - Introduction and How we're Helping to build out the Litecoin Ecosystem.

Hey there Litecoin peeps. I wanted to take the time to introduce Decentral, Jaxx (and myself) to the Litecoin community.
As some of you may know, last week Jaxx became closer involved with your community as we launched Litecoin wallet integration across all 9 platforms that Jaxx supports. iOS mobile & iPad, Android mobile & tablet, Chrome & Firefox extensions and Mac / PC / Linux desktop.
We've gotten off to a bit of a rocky start with this integration... but more on that later.
Jaxx has been in the works for over a year and a half now and officially launched this past June. In a nutshell, the vision for Jaxx is to create a default blockchain interface that's made for the masses (including those non-technical folk like my Dad) that allows everyone to manage and be in full control or their digital assets, and done in a way that brings together and provides support for the global decentralized tech / blockchain communities we admire for providing choice and value to the world.

Now back to Litecoin. I must apologize for the rocky start Jaxx has had with our Litecoin integration. We had decided to launch Litecoin on the backbone of blockr.io, a 3rd party service we use to display balances and push transactions. Blockr.io had been rock solid for us and we were hoping to use it in the interim leading up to the iminent deployment our own new Litecoin infrastructure.
Unfortunately, a couple days ago blockr.io went down, and after popping back up briefly, went back down and remains down. Right now, What this means is that our LTC users have been unable to use Jaxx to see the most updated wallet balances, as well as not being able to send funds. Please know your funds are safe and we're working to rectify the problem. We're very sorry for the inconvenience this is causing and take full responsibility for this even though it's a 3rd party service we have no control over the issue that's causing the outage.
Here's what we're doing to be better and work towards this never happening again. We hate being down, and this is a terrible way for us to start the relationship between Jaxx and the Litecoin community. This is the very reason we are not just carrying tokens such as Litecoin, but also creating the full infrastructure and redundancy systems for tokens we carry to ensure this doesn't happen in the future. For now we and our users rely on blockr, but very soon we'll be deploying our own multiple nodes, api, and relay system to add more robustness to Jaxx. The ultimate plan in the future is for individual users to run and tap into their own nodes should they wish to do so. The more control can be pushed off to the individual / user, and the less you have to rely on us the better, we say.
This new structure, the first part of it which should be deployed over the next 2 days is designed to source data from multiple nodes (in a round-robin fashion) and select the best most accurate info to display and use for sending transactions. What this means is although we will still use blockr.io for Litecoin, no longer will we be down should they have problems as we'll also have our own multiple Litecoin nodes in the system to rely on and back us up. We're also determining how this infrastructure can be used to assist the entire Litecoin ecosystem as the complete structure containing nodes, apis, and relay system is unique and unlike anything available right now for Litecoin. We developed this massive infrastructure project which is and will be available for all our supported tokens because we realized what was currently available (a miss-match of token specific services) wasn't allowing us to add new token support efficiently and synchronously.

Hey I found a camera on the streetcar today friend_in_toronto 2

submitted by thetorontobot to toronto [link] [comments]

Long time lurker. Would really like to reach out finally. I'm the owner of www.dogecoinswag.com, and a Shibe since a few months after Dogecoin's creation. Please hear me out!

From Toronto good morning all,
For one second, I want to preach about Dogecoin. This place changes lives. It's a runaway force, predominantly driven by selfless people. I've watched the pains, and witnessed the highs. It always bounces back because we don't give up.
I believe it simply comes down to having the patience for eventual adoption, like with all innovative ideas throughout history. The Cryptocurrency community is full of those willing to take a bit of risk on something that could truly be an/their anchor in the long run.
For example, my long lost brotherly friend is currently installing a Bitcoin ATM machine into a prominent Canadian University, while he runs Miners and works at his 9-5 job.
This year I wined and dined my Dad seeking investment money to match the three to five thousand I was willing to sink into graphics cards that was coming eventually (great lunch, nothing really came from it though haha).
I believed in Cryptos when I first learned about them and eventually Dogecoin became my own personal home of all the Altcoins. Sorry to get all sappy and stuffff, but I can feel the spirit and faith in Dogecoin from so many of you. In the physical sense, I believe we are a collective conscious that cannot be destroyed for as long as the Internet exists. However the intangible is something of a credo that so many on here follow naturally. Kindergarten stuff like 'don't do harm to your fellow Shibe' and 'take care of your fellow Shibes.'
To be honest, I have gotten caught up with a new event management company and don't have the time to take on all these goals I've thought about a long time for Dogecoin and Cryptos as a whole.
One night the idea of creating a clean simple shopping site that aggregates everything from custom Dogecoin merchandise you find on variation sites like "Etsy" (search those Crafty people out there trying to earn a buck and use www.dogecoinswag.com to increase their traffic/revenue) to professionally made stickers, stuffed animals/plush toys, Dogecoin/Doge icecube trays, tshirts, rugs (wut?), bottles, skateboards, ANYTHING, as well as other goods we all love to find in an interesting novelty type shops (i.e. lasers to show where we landed on the Moon) that people can purchase with Cryptos and "Regular Currencies". The majority of Cash would be pumped into the Market and essentially buy up bulk as a community. Can you see the cycle?
I was planning on getting started before August 15th when the money finally comes in to try and help finance something like this to get the beginnings in motion.
Here's where I'd like to somehow offer www.dogecoinswag.com to be a crowd-surfing site. I need an agreed amount of us willing to volunteer and take on an operation like this as I don't know many things with IT, Law, and Manufacturing. I'm hard pressed for time/capital as this event management company is moving pretty quick. Stressful, but a good stress.
Money would be very fairly split with all of you who participate.. perhaps some wage machine like faucet that automatically pays per hour clocked in for hundreds of employees wanting to work (on tasks deemed at the same level.. throwing stuff at the wall here this early), or maybe just some few would rather take this project on. Open to all of your suggestions.
A fair portion of revenue generated from this site will go back to making a brand new faucet that is constantly being pumped as www.dogecoinswag.com hopefully takes off and earns a residual worth. Faucet giveaways would be constant, and the rewards ideally the highest of all faucets.
The other goal would be that I am seriously interested in being the person to get clubs, lounges, bars, festivals, etc. to accept Cryptocurrencies as regular payment. I have quite a few places right now that would certainly entertain the idea if they knew they could generate some new revenue.
Imagine the exposure to Cryptos when people find out that huge bottle service party on the side was paid for in Dogecoin/Bitcoin? When Dogecoin and Bitcoin begin to infiltrate people's R&R time, it will become more and more of something accepted as it really needs some "cool people" to call it "cool". Sure, let's pay for this Helicopter ride over Niagara Falls with, Dogecoin.
I'd like to build a club myself that I've designed already and this all leads to it. Of course Crypto would just be the standard in there. Basically I am saying that if you guys help get all of this stuff moving, eventually I could create a place that caters to clients using Cryptos and who knows, maybe it would be the first place if this actually takes off in time before we see that idea become a commonality.
I just came from Dogecoinbeg and after sorting by All-time and Top, posts I sadly noticed that the Beg threads were all fairly similar, and not really any "grandiose ideas". Grandiose is often a word that shuts down peoples' dreams. I didn't want to post in there for fear this would get buried.
Being dead serious and have about 7k+ before mid-August. It would be absolutely fantastic to talk about making what I think could be the home e-store for Dogecoin (Crypto as a whole?) paraphernalia among other goods, with people from all around the world.
I'm back in the event management type business for the second time now, and my anxiety is going off the wall. The often cruel and judgmental people in this industry got the best of me the first time around. This time around has too much now committed to not face everything head-on, and finally make this passion a reality.
What that random paragraph meant is that, I can't ease your skepticism that I won't screw you over, but I can tell you that I know how it feels to be screwed over.
I finally decided tonight that I'm okay with the potential that by creating this post, I end up having the idea taken. It's worth a shot for the potential of added positivity as I don't have my own the time/capital to dedicate to what a project like this truly needs. So, I invite you to team up with me. Help me do what we are known for and organize www.dogecoinswag.com as a group and we'll ALL grow together.
Have an awesome weekend Shibes, and thanks for all your consideration.
