    Blockchains don’t scale. Not today, at least. But there’s hope

    ... But this dream still remains a dream for the foreseeable future — while a few early enthusiasts and entrepreneurs are experimenting with building such applications, there’s still a big missing piece that prevents us from seeing these applications come to fruition: scalability, Blockchains, as it stands today, are limited in their ability to scale. In order to scale, the blockchain protocol must figure out a mechanism to limit the number of participating nodes needed to validate each transaction, without losing the network’s trust that each transaction is valid.

    ... “This time is different” is a result of the hubris of an overly eager investor, the rallying cry of investors that believe they can ignore previous attitudes, beliefs, concepts, or ideas about investing because, “This time it’s different”.

    Bitcoin and why I think the downtrend line everyone keeps talking about is overrated
    This is the cursed downtrend line indicating the bearish trend

    ... The current situation isn’t one Bitcoin hasn’t faced before.

    ... On Tuesday, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced something called the Virtual Markets Integrity Initiative, a state-level effort to examine the policies and practices of the major cryptocurrency exchanges. Schneiderman's office emphasized to TechCrunch that the endeavor is a "a fact-finding inquiry" and not an "investigation" as it's not apparent there is any wrongdoing.
