“I believe that blockchain needs to be a big part of our future. If I’m in the White House, oh boy are we going to have some fun in terms of the cryptocurrency community.” Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Andrew Yang
“There’s a popular perception that the rate limiting factor in blockchain adoption is something to do with the technology itself — like the technology isn’t scalable, it’s not fast enough, the developer tools aren’t in place. But in my experience is that’s really not the rate limiting factor at this point. It’s not even at the top of my list.
You’re going to need to reach agreement on some critical things about who is a member of the network, what’s the commercial model behind the network, what legal form does it take and how you manage that network and that software over time.” Ken Nessel, Senior Director of Business Technology, Pfizer
Folks asking my opinion of Ethereum:
Well . . .. Frankly, I prefer one syllable coins and am not fond of Ethereum's spelling. Additionally, many of my friends who hold Ethereum dress oddly. And, of course, Buterin looks underfed to me. But do not take this as investment advice.

“Bitcoin’s blip appears to have been caused by a significant sell order placed on the Bitstamp exchange early Friday morning, which triggered selling across other exchanges, Whether this order was a deliberate dump or a fat finger error remains to be seen.
Given the positive sentiment in the market over the past few weeks, it’s likely that the price will recover soon. However, this drop is a stark reminder that cryptoassets still operate in a nascent market, which is susceptible to significant price moves by whales.” Simon Peters, analyst at eToro
There is no next bitcoin. Stop trying to find a shitcoin that will go from nothing to $5000 like bitcoin and make you rich. There is only one Bitcoin. If you are this "late", suck it up and pay up. Still early in the big picture. You won't regret it in 10 years #friendlyadvice

After trading #Bitcoin for 7 years now, I can honestly say we are seeing an entire new era of $BTC market action. It does appear crypto, starting with #BTC has finally become a global reserve asset that people around the world run to in times of uncertainty…

“I believe that there are use cases that makes sense today. We have yet to find them at scale in financial services. We’re experimenting heavily, we have more patents than any other financial institution in the blockchain space, but have yet to find something that makes a difference for our clients or our customer.” Catherine Bessant, Chief Technology Officer, Bank of America
“The horse is here to stay, but the automobile is only a novelty, a fad.”

I hope Bitcoin is as much of a fad as the automobile. 😂

That's because Warren Buffett has never traded crypto nor has he gotten "used to" 30% dumps in a matter of hours. However, I partially agree as well. If the project is solid, dont panic sell and just let it be. To each their own! https://t.co/R35kFw5d76

Crypto companies bragging about their regulatory compliance status is like restaurants bragging about their health inspection grades. You don't get bonus points for keeping your kitchen clean and the fact you even decided to bring it up is a little concerning.
