Blockstream investor emails leaked - shows Blockstream motivation to steal transaction fees from miners and pay to Liquid sidechain customers

A little birdie leaked multiple Blockstream investor emails to me. I will not be revealing my source so do not ask. As we are all well aware many Blockstream investors are upset with the way Blockstream has been squandering away their venture capital.
I am taking snippets from the leaked emails and publishing them here. Any Blockstreamer that wants to confirm or deny the leaked email snippets is more than welcome to but I highly doubt they will and will more than likely deny these exist. It's easy to tell who wrote the emails from their obvious writing style. Also just think who is the main public facing exec at Blockstream and you know will know who. It's very easy to tell :D

Here is the first leaked email to investors which covers Q1 2017. Some interesting snippets with bolded areas by me to show important statements and claims being made by Blockstream.

Dear Blockstream Investor!
A lot of exciting things have happened since our last update and we are preparing several public announcements over the coming weeks. Below is an update on our progress:
Community Update
As background on the Bitcoin ecosystem, although none of Blockstream’s business plans are conditional on activation of Segregated Witness (“SegWit”), the “SegWit versus Bitcoin Unlimited” story remains a major conversation topic in the Bitcoin community. We agree with the overwhelming majority of technical leaders in the ecosystem who state that SegWit is not only the safer way to increase transaction capacity in the short-term, but it also includes other protocol improvements that will enable a significant amount of future innovation. There are some suggestions that the miners’ delays in activation of SegWit are economically motivated rather than technical in nature -- delays allow miners to collect artificially high fees from the strong demand for Bitcoin transactions in the short-term, and the assumption is that fees would decrease with the activation of SegWit and layer2 retail and micropayment applications, such as Lightning, which compete for fees. (Lightning fees are paid to peer-to-peer liquidity providers, and not miners).
Market Update
On March 10th, the bitcoin-based ETF proposed by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss was rejected by the SEC. The decision was based on several factors, including concerns about the fact that bitcoin exchanges are largely unregulated, affecting the quality of the price data used to support the ETF. Reaction to the decision was mixed; however our view is that this is only a temporary blip in bitcoin’s progress. (More in this article, which includes Adam’s thoughts on the ruling.) There are other bitcoin ETF’s awaiting an SEC decision, and it is likely that new applications will be filed in the future. Many of the SEC concerns are addressed by Blockstream products and technologies, so future approval of a bitcoin ETF may be more realistic than the specific reasoning provided in the SEC decision would suggest.
In late February, the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance was announced, with large partners including Microsoft, Accenture, JP Morgan Chase, as well as other large companies and Blockchain startups. The alliance, which resembles organizations like R3 and Hyperledger, will attempt to address some of the problems encountered by businesses that want to use Ethereum for a number of different use cases. We do not view these groups as major threats to our platform because the technology they are developing is very early-stage compared to the Elements platform; however, we are focusing on making our tools easier for developers and engineers to use so that it is easier for members of these industry working groups to use our platform in some of their Proof of Concept projects.
Recent Accomplishments
Liquid: Next week, we will be inviting participants to join a live Liquid beta network. We will work with customers to integrate the Liquid service with their interface and perform live testing (real transactions but de minimis amounts initially). Once all of our customers are ready, we will launch the production version and begin planning Liquid 2.0.
Elements - Code Update: Based on our experience with using our Elements tools to create Liquid, we made significant improvements to our Elements Alpha code and published an update to our open source codebase.
Elements - New Release: We are preparing to launch a new version of Elements to add a very valuable feature. Using this new technology, we have been collaborating with a partner who is developing a new product on the Elements platform. Stay tuned for more information about this exciting release.
Lightning: We continue to make progress on our Lightning Network implementation. In our last update, we told you about our first end-to-end test of a lightning micropayment network. We also recently participated in a Lightning Network summit with representatives of all major Lightning implementations. At the meeting, significant progress was made on standardizing efforts so that all of the groups are able to collaborate together in order to accelerate development.

My comments about the snippets above -

Here is the second leaked email to investors which covers Q2 2017. Some interesting snippets with bolded areas by me to show important statements and claims being made by Blockstream.

Dear Blockstream Investor,
We have had a very busy Q2 and would like to give you an update on everything we have been up to over the past few months.
Community Update:
Some of our investors may be tracking the Bitcoin ecosystem scaling discussion. To recap, “SegWit” (short for Segregated Witness) upgrades a number of bitcoin features, provides at least a 2x capacity increase, and enables the high-scale Bitcoin Lightning protocol.
It appears that SegWit may finally be activated during the next few weeks, after what appears to be mostly political delays. That means that we should shortly see transaction throughput increases and an acceleration of Lightning deployment. Obviously uncertainty over this was of some concern to investors. We remain optimistic that Bitcoin can continue scaling via the adoption of a range of approaches tailored to the usage type -- we will keep you posted.
Recent Accomplishments:
Consensus 2017: In May, Blockstream sent a number of key team members to the CoinDesk Consensus conference in New York. The event proved to be a very valuable experience for us. We had multiple speaking and panel appearances, and our presentations were very well received by conference attendees. We also invited existing and potential Liquid customers to a live demo of Liquid Beta. The feedback from this demo was very positive and led to follow up press coverage. Several exchanges told us that they had been following our progress with interest, but seeing the value of the product firsthand was very important in their decision to help test the network and potentially become a customer.
Liquid: In early April we took Liquid Beta live, and have been working with multiple participants on both test transactions and moving real bitcoins between Liquid and the main Bitcoin blockchain. The feedback we received has been exceptionally helpful, allowing us to reduce the number of steps necessary for network participants to complete a two-way peg in and out of the Liquid sidechain and making it easier for our customers to send bitcoin across the Liquid network. We are pleased with our recent progress on Liquid and looking forward to adding new customers soon.
Lightning: With SegWit recently activated on Litecoin, our developer Christian Decker made the first lightning payment in a non-test environment.
Confidential Assets: In late April, we announced a new Elements feature – Confidential Assets (CA). CA builds on Confidential Transactions and allows users to put multiple assets on the same blockchain, hiding both the transaction amount and the type of asset. The first group using Confidential Assets in production is our investor and partner Digital Garage, who is including it in a loyalty point marketplace.

SEC rejects ProShares and Direxion Bitcoin ETFs

SEC Announcements:
https://www.sec.gov/rules/sro/nysearca/2018/34-83904.pdf (ProShares)
https://www.sec.gov/rules/sro/nysearca/2018/34-83912.pdf (Direxion)
Article from https://chainstate.org/2018/08/22/sec-rejects-two-bitcoin-etfs/
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rejected two Bitcoin ETF proposals on Wednesday – the ProShares and Direxion Bitcoin ETFs – earlier than their respective deadlines. This comes shortly after the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust ETF denial, which occurred less than a month ago on July 26th.
The SEC’s highly anticipated ruling on ProShares ETF was expected to be finalized Thursday, on the deadline of the decision, but was instead rejected Wednesday along with the Direxion Bitcoin Bear and Bull Shares. According to MarketWatch, the Direxion ETFs were expected to be decided on later this year, on September 21st, but the SEC appears to have decided the same outcome for both Bitcoin investment vehicles. The SEC’s announcement states that the ETFs were not accepted due to concerns about manipulation, lack of regulation and fraud that may surround the ETFs and cryptocurrency markets in general.
Despite the recent trend of ETF rejections, the fight for approval is not over yet – other ETF proposals including the VanEck-SolidX Bitcoin ETF still have a chance at acceptance. The VanEck ETF’s ruling deadline is September 30th.

Bitcoin Bubble Bear Traps (Yet Again)

On May 10-11, 2011 Bitcoin fell from $6 to $4.60. That represents a 23% drop.
When you zoom out the drop looks fairly insignificant.
On March 6-7, 2013 Bitcoin dropped from $50 to $35. A 30% drop.
However, if you zoom out it just looks like a hiccup. If you zoom out even further it's hard to even see it all.
On March 23, 2013 it dropped from $70 to $53. A 24% drop.
Again, if you zoom out, it's hard to even see.
On April 3, 2013 it dropped from $145 to $111. A 23% drop.
Zoom out.
Moving forward to the latter bubble of 2013...
On October 2, 2013 Bitcoin fell from $127 to $86. This is a 32% drop. It coincided with the Silk Road shutdown.
Zoom out and it looks like a hiccup. Zoom out further and you can't see it at all.
On November 9-10, 2013 Bitcoin dropped from $360 to $270. A 25% drop.
Zoom out, looks minor. Zoom out further, looks very minor.
On November 19-20, 2013 Bitcoin fell from $750 to $450. That's a 40% drop.
Granted, that one is still pretty noticeable when you zoom out.
Now moving forward to the growth we've seen this year...
On January 6-7, 2017 it dropped from $1140 to $750. A 34.2% drop. When you zoom out, it's not much to speak of.
On March 10, 2017, Bitcoin dropped from $1350 to $975, representing a 27.8% drop. This was the date of the SEC's Winklevoss ETF decision. If it weren't for the volume candle, this day doesn't seem all that noteworthy after zooming out.
On May 25-27, 2017, Bitcoin fell from $2760 to $1850, which is a 33% drop. We subsequently made new all-time-highs.
Bitcoin just experienced a 25.1% drop, and I like to post these reminders every now and then when these sorts of movements happen, to remind everyone to keep your perspective in check. There is no way to know whether this drop is a bear trap until after-the-fact, when it will be obvious, but be careful shorting this or assuming that the growth is over just because of this drop.

Key near term events that can effect crypto...

THIS LIST HAS MOVED TO THE WIKI AND WILL BE UPDATED THERE https://www.reddit.com/ethtradewiki/upcoming_news
 
Many events in the crypto world seem obvious in hindsight. Case in point the BTC rally influenced by new currency regulations introduced on January the 1st in China and the raising of interest rates by the FED in December. So let's create a list of upcoming events and try to speculate on the possible effects on crypto trading. Here goes, '+' is beneficial to crypto, '-' pejorative:
 
JANUARY SUPREME COURT JUDGEMENT ON BREXIT + potential boost proportionally to political turmoil
JANUARY 20th TRUMP INAUGURATION + political turmoil, international unrest - hypercapitalism, business as usual, etc. at least short/mid term JANUARY 28th CHINESE NEW YEAR + possible crypto financial activity in line with new year psychological effect
JANUARY-MARCH LAUNCH OF METROPOLIS + obviously positive - even more so if they also include the DAPP marketplace feature LAUNCH OF ICONOMI.Index + positive, however it’s possible this is already (partially) factored into the ICN price + potential to introduce large, non-technical audience to Ethereum LAUNCH OF DIGIX 2.0 + positive, however it’s possible this is already (partially) factored into the price GNOSIS CROWDSALE (ICO) + one of the more interesting and solid Dapps, possible opportunity FINAL DECISION REGARDING THE RULE CHANGE NEEDED FOR WINKLEVOSS BITCOIN ETF + financial product for the non-crypto investor pool, would be a big win for BTC - if rejected will take a long time to get back on the regulatory table
FEBRUARY 17-18 ETHEREUM EUROPEAN DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE (EDCON) PARIS + News of key developments in Ethereum and Dapps APRIL 23 FRENCH GENERAL ELECTION + this might lead to further crisis in the EU if the far-right wins
APRIL PLANNED LAUNCH OF BRASS GOLEM + Boost to GNT token values if on schedule and works well + Possibly an introduction of GNT token on exchanges if this doesn't happen earlier SOMETIME IN 2017 FED INTEREST RATE HIKE (POTENTIALLY 3-4 HIKES) + potentially a replay of what is happening now (capital flight from China and emerging markets to crypto POTENTIAL BAN OR LIMITS ON CRYPTO (ex. China) CRYPTO REGULATION (ex. SEC) - bad **LAUNCH OF AUGUR (REP) + probably creating an immense amount of media attention
END OF 2017/BEGINNING OF 2018 LAUNCH/DELAY OF CASPER + DIFFICULTY BOMB + huge boost to ETH value if successful (accumulate 1500ETH to be able to stake) - a delay, uncertainty and especially a failure will have huge negative impact (hard fork to diffuse/delay bomb)
 
Please feel free to add events in the comments. Looking forward to your opinions.

Has anyone traded Bitcoin Tracker One ETN in the stock market?

I heard that Sweden just launched the Bitcoin ETN in the Nasdaq Stockholm exchange. Has anyone traded this Bitcoin ETN in your stock broker account? Can you short this Bitcoin ETN? How good is this Bitcoin ETN compared to the Bitcoin ETF by the Winklevoss twins submitted to the US SEC?

Bitfinex locked up by Winklevoss? ETF to soon be approved?

Hear me out. So the COIN ETF was denied after 3 years of extensions due to the fact that the price of bitcoin is decided on unregulated exchanges. After a whole 3 years, this decision was made. Shortly after, Bitfinex, who has been running fine for years, besides the hack, has it's bank accounts locked up. The Winklevoss apply for a review of the ETF decision and the review is approved! Why in the hell would they approve the review shortly after they took 3 years to deny it. Well maybe because the only unregulated exchange that accepts USD deposits was locked up and now there is only regulated exchanges accepting USD. Does smart money see this too and that's why we're hitting ATH's? Did the SEC basically hint to the ETF that Bitfinex was the exchange holding them back?
I understand there are many unregulated exchanges, but I think it comes down to which ones accept USD as it's been proven that the price can vary greatly between exchanges depending on what their deposit and withdrawal methods are. Therefore, unregulated Chinese exchanges don't matter if your only using the current price from regulated USD exchanges.
And when I say unregulated, I mean not regulated in the US. There's a reason Bitfinex was able to pull off their BFX coin scam. Because they aren't under the jurisdiction of US laws.

What Will Be Bitcoin's Next Big Price Event?

For the price of bitcoin, the summer was anything but smooth.
Markets boomed on news of 'the Brexit', tapered off through the long-awaited halving and tumbled on the news yet another exchange had been hacked. Since then, the price has fluctuated between $550 and $600, returning to the "relative" calm observed earlier in the year.
But given bitcoin's historical volatility, analysts are already beginning to question what may trigger bitcoin's next big price swing.
As we head into the fall and winter months, a diverse set of theories are beginning to emerge about conditions that could either boost the price, or see it return to its 2015 lows.
Institutional approval
Among the potential triggers cited by analysts, the emergence of a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF), an investment vehicle that generally tracks a basket of stocks or commodities, was perhaps the most often discussed.
Many market observers have been watching the status of two proposed ETFs with great interest, but for a while, there wasn't any reason to hope for developments. However, excitement for a potential market first has grown in recent weeks following the July announcement of the SolidX Bitcoin Trust and amid new filings by the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust.
The approval of either could represent a milestone for the bitcoin community, analysts say, as the ETFs would enable authorized participants to issues shares tied to real bitcoin holdings, which could be a catalyst for new liquidity.
Daniel Masters, director of Global Advisors Bitcoin Investment Fund (GABI), noted recently that many commodities have enjoyed sharp increases in price and more robust trading activity once ETFs based on the underlying assets hit the market.
He wrote in an August blog post:
"From the early 2000s onward, there was a proliferation of ETFs covering all manner of commodity interests. In each and every case – for gold, silver, oil, natural gas, platinum, copper and even indices – the advent of the ETFs led to higher prices, more trading volume of futures and cash exchanges and higher levels of commodity futures open interest."
Should either ETF receive approval, bitcoin could enjoy a notable increase in liquidity. It was this variable that Du Jun, co-founder of Chinese exchange Huobi, singled out as potentially driving the digital currency's price higher.
"Bitcoin's liquidity depends on the future of bitcoin's value and investors' expectation to a large extent," Du said.
Technical improvements
Yet another potential boost for the bitcoin price could come in the form of a long-awaited resolution to the "scaling" debate.
Currently, blocks of transactions on the bitcoin blockchain have a storage size of just 1MB. As this puts a limitation on the number of transactions the network can process (and therefore, some argue, adoption), there has been a sometimes messy and contentious drive in the community to change it.
But due to the tricky specifics of how a change to this hard-coded limit would need to be enacted, no consensus has yet been reached. Still, that doesn't mean solutions aren't on the way, the most notable of which is Segregated Witness (SegWit), an upgrade that recently saw a preliminary code release.
While promising for the network, though, analysts seemed less enthusiastic about SegWit’s potential impact on bitcoin prices.
Cryptocurrency investment fund manager Jacob Eliosoff, for example, said investors have likely already priced in the coming change as it was announced in December and originally expected to be deployed in April.
"SegWit's release seems too gradual and widely expected (not to say overdue) to really bump the price," Eliosoff said.
Tim Enneking, chairman of investment manager EAM, struck a similar tone, adding:
"I don’t think SegWit will have anything more than an incremental and marginal impact on BTC prices, at least in the short term."
Post-Halving pressures
In one of the more unique claims, investor and entrepreneur Vinny Lingham singled out the halving of rewards on the bitcoin network as a potential influence.
The prediction may be surprising given that a planned technical change the reduced the mining reward from 25 BTC to 12.5 BTC took place earlier this summer, largely without fanfare.
But while bitcoin prices experienced little change this July, Lingham asserts its true impact has not yet been felt. In the next two-to-four weeks, forces resulting from the shift could cause the digital currency to surge, he said.
As detailed in a recent post, miners who aren't turning enough profit, he contends, may soon be forced to buy bitcoin from exchanges, an event he said was likely to trigger a "short squeeze", or a sharp increase in the price based on the lack of available supply.
He wrote in May:
"It’s the same as selling crops in the futures market and then being hit by a storm that wipes out half of your fields. The only way, technically, that this doesn’t happen, is if the price doubles on halving day (it won’t)."
Financial (in)stability
Finally, some predicted bitcoin's next major price event would be dependent on the stability of the global financial system.
Traders have repeatedly flocked to the digital currency in times of crisis, leading many market observers to label it a risk-off asset or even a "digital gold" that appeals during times of economic stress.
In the past, bitcoin has benefitted from situations such as the 'Brexit', as well as during periods of economic volatility in Greece and Cyprus.
It remains debatable how much of these increases is based on real capital flight, but there is still widespread belief that such events could come to be a powerful influencer going forward.
Huobi's Du spoke to this matter, telling CoinDesk that when the global financial system experiences volatility, investors will "look for more safe-haven investments" like bitcoin.
Another variable remains government responses to the digital currency. If major countries accept bitcoin, analysts said, it will affect both the currency's trading activity and value.

Post ETF effect on price of ETH (my predictions for evaluation after March)

First we must consider why the ETF is being pushed:
The Winklevoss Twins own 108,000 Bitcoin. People expect the price of BTC to move by 3x if the ETF is passed. That would mean that the Winklevoss would have over 300 million USD in Bitcoin that they would want to sell. This is the reason they want to make the ETF so that they have enough volume to offload their BTC (Keep this in mind)
Possible outcomes of Post ETF decision.
ETF does not pass (I think this is most likely outcome)
Likely: BTC drops 30% ETH/BTC ratio spikes 50% (Bitcoin ratio of crypto market below 70%)
ETH/USD drops below 11 for first month ETH recovers above 11 from momentum for implementation of Metropolis which appears to be at most 8 months and at least 2 months away. (I think about 4 months away according to Vitalik's sentiments) During this time the price will rise from 10 to new highs (above 22) over the period of time to Metropolis as sentiment of market is discovered. (if setbacks this will not happen, I think security setbacks are unlikely as that is what the last 6 months have been about establishing)
The ETF Passes (I think this will not happen but it may)
Bitcoin rises 2.5x and then precedes a long downward trend for 2 years before stabilization. If a fork is implemented to save transaction problems BTC will drop below 1800.
Short term ETH/BTC drops 50% as Bitcoin outpaces ETH
ETH/USD continues upward with a 15% boost from incoming BTC funds
In long term ETH will be similar to if ETF does not pass
TLDR:
Short Term: 2 months
ETF pass: ETH rises quickly (not relative to BTC as BTC will outpace ETH)
ETF no pass: ETH drops 25% from entire market squeeze of USD but ETH/BTC ratio will rocket
Long term: >3 months
ETF will not affect long term USD price, only the rate that ETH arrives at that price.
This is my personal guess that I wanted to make as part of my post history to review later so I understand how I approach making personal decisions in crypto.

ETF developments - new news

People haven't been talking about ETFs much lately, but stuff is still happening that may end up being big.
The Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust "COIN" ETF was denied, of course, but they did appeal back in March.
Since then, however, something big happened: LedgerX got approval from the CFTC to start selling Bitcoin options. They're not alone either, because CBOE is partnering with Gemini to offer Bitcoin futures as well. Based on these US-regulated offerings, in the past few weeks there have been two new ETF filings.
2 weeks ago: VanEck Vectors Bitcoin Strategy ETF
last week: REX Bitcoin Strategy ETF and REX Short Bitcoin Strategy ETF
These new ETFs are substantially different than the COIN ETF because they will hold options and futures instead of directly holding Bitcoin, but they still represent a way for retail investors to gain exposure to the Bitcoin price right in their existing brokerage or retirement accounts. Also, unlike GBTC, demand for these ETFs can actually affect the real Bitcoin price!
The SEC has undoubtedly seen the demand for Bitcoin investments after they suspended trading in some shares that rose 7000% just because they had "Bitcoin" in their name. Will they approve this new style of Bitcoin ETF?

Technical Analysis - BTC
BTCUSD has busted through the 100 SMA dynamic resistance, so there’s some bullish momentum building up. BTC is ready to test the 200 SMA dynamic resistance around $8,500 next. This is near a former support turned resistance level at the $9,000 barrier.A move past this level could lead to a test of the $10,000 major psychological level. Stronger bullish pressure could take BTCUSD to the next ceiling close to $12,000. However, RSI is indicating overbought conditions already, which means that seller's wave is taking over.

The Gas price continues to decrease and has now a recommended price of 10 Gwei with a Median tome to confirm of 1.4 min. This is a very good reversal. We expect to start the distribution soon with a target price of 2-3 Gwei and the slowest time.

**Gas Price Up, Referendum II on Hold.*\*
The congestion across the Ethereum network and the sudden hike in the Gas price, sometimes climbing more than five times, led us to delay of distribution of our RSB2 tokens. Lately, it seems that the Gas price is finally going down. We will announce distribution as soon as possible when the cost of transactions drop to the fair price of 2. We are following the market closely and we will provide you with daily updates

Daily Performances
As expected we continue to see gappy moves in thin trading. $6,000 level will likely be a strong magnet given the large open interest in September options. Implied volatility is ticking up slowly despite tight ranges but it is unlikely the market can independently break out of the current consolidative phase without external catalysts.

BTCUSD is potentially completing an inverted head and shoulder pattern. Should it complete the right shoulder and break above the neckline, currently at $6,870, we would expect to see an upwards impulse towards $8,000, where it would meet the downward trend resistance. At this time, we are awaiting to see how this formation plays out.

Daily Performances
Nothing much has changed in the broad crypto landscape. BTC has remained comfortably above 20DMA despite the $6,000 level magnet, and also has been resilient to negative news. Light volumes still indicate a lack of conviction but $6,800-$7,000 range to the upside seems to be the short term target necessary for another leg higher. Summer season may bring more quiet trading but external shocks and/or significant news may cause a gappy move - more likely to the upside.

Technical Analysis - BTC
After periods of lower lows and retest of $6,000-a key support line and April lows, it seems like Bitcoin prices are making a turn for the better.. BTCUSD continues to be in a short term uptrend which is positive, but it is facing various resistance levels all the way to $7,000. Closing above $7,000 for a few days would be a strong confirmation of a new strong uptrend. Until then, we remain cautiously optimistic.

Daily Performances
Over the weekend, there were somewhat positive industry news coming out (see news above). BTC has been attempting to break above the key $6,800 level to confirm a break away from downward trends. In options, September $6,000 puts have large open interest so if we are able to break away the market should get lighter. Volatility in upside calls ($9,000, 10k strikes) are closely watched for bullish signals.

List Of Noteworthy Events: Capital Flight 2.0 Could Result In Unprecedented Run On Crypto

Here are some dates and events that should be on your radar (outside cryptomarkets).
MONEY MARKET REFORMS October 14
Money market funds will be required to increase the transparency of fund operations and risks. Funds will need to disclose their levels of daily and weekly liquid assets on their websites on a weekly basis in addition to net inflows/outflows, NAVs, fees and sponsor support. Money market funds will also be required to report portfolio holdings within five business days after month-end and improve private liquidity fund reporting. http://wealthmanagement.com/fixed-income/money-market-reform
This can result in a dramatic rise in LIBOR rates (rate at which banks lend each other money) and lead to a weak dollar and a significant EUR rally. Probably over several months, not overnight.
CAPITAL FLIGHT LIKE NEVER BEFORE SEEN IN HISTORY?
POTENTIAL ETF APPROVAL DATES
Last but not least - countries in the Euro zone are charging negative interest rates now, so there you have it:
This is a rare constellation.

5 Reasons The Winklevoss ETF Will Send Bitcoin over 10,000+

http://bitcoinpricelive.com/bitcoin-etf-5-reasons-the-winklevoss-bitcoin-etf-will-send-bitcoin-to-10000/
The Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF is set to go online at the end of 2014. You might remember the Winklevoss twin brothers from the movie The Social Network where they sued Mark Zuckerburg and Facebook to win 50 million dollars. Since then the twins have moved on to start a Bitcoin ETF named the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust. Once it begins trading, expect the price of Bitcoin to soar to over $10,000.
Here’s 5 reasons why:
  1. Wall Street Money Will Flow Into The Bitcoin ETF. As soon as a person can go to their brokerage account, type in the symbol COIN and buy now, it will put upwards pressure on the price of Bitcoin. There are many wealthy investors who would like to get into Bitcoin but they feel uncomfortable that Bitcoin is not in their name, that they need to backup a wallet, and they need to keep their computer virus free. The Winklevoss ETF will allow the average wealthy investor who is a not technology expert to put large amounts of money into Bitcoin.
  2. The Winklevoss ETF will be promoted as currency diversification on Wall Street Bitcoin is already being regarded by Wall Street as a new currency. The US dollar, Euro, and Yen have been undermined as a store of value. It will be advertised to clients as a high risk, high reward alternative currency.
  3. Trading of the ETF will only be open during stock market hours The COIN ETF can only be bought or sold during the NASDAQ market is open in the United States. This means that the Wall Street investor will only be able to access Bitcoin trading from 9:30 AM EST to 4:30 PM. During this time period, there will be increased volume and more news released about Bitcoin. In the downtime there will be massive speculation about where the Bitcoin ETF will open and for what price. There will be discrepancies of the price between Bitcoin exchanges and the Bitcoin ETF.
  4. Liquidity in Bitcoin markets will increase dramatically. There will be many more Bitcoins trading hands on a daily basis as the Bitcoin ETF will be required to allow shorting as well. This means that investors can bet that Bitcoin will go down as well. When the Bitcoin ETF opens, it will be much easier for Bitcoin Bears to bet that the price will go down. However, this is good for the price of Bitcoin as it will allow investors to bet both sides of the Bitcoin, increasing Bitcoin transactions
  5. The Bitcoin ETF is required to buy additional Bitcoins Details of the Winklevoss ETF reveal that as more money flows into their trust, they are required to buy Bitcoins. Since the supply of Bitcoins is limited, this means they will have to buy from exchanges or over the counter purchases. Recently, the Winklevoss Twins announced they would pay in Bitcoin to go to space via Richard Branson’s Virgin Galatic.
Expect the price of Bitcoin to go space as well!

Bitcoin dropped more than 30 percent in March after the SEC rejected the Winklevoss brothers' application for a bitcoin ETF, and SolidX Partners' application for a bitcoin exchange-traded product. Update March 10th 2017 – The SEC has rejected the Bitcoin ETF suggested by the Winklevoss twins.. According to a publicly distributed notice detailing the decision, the SEC said: “As discussed further below, the Commission is disapproving this proposed rule change because it does not find the proposal to be consistent with Section 6(b)(5) of the Exchange Act, which requires, among other ... The Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust may be inching closer to becoming the first bitcoin ETF listed on a major stock exchange, but that potentially historic date could be further off than some might think. The Road to Bitcoin ETF Approval . Firms looking to launch bitcoin ETFs have run into problems with regulatory agencies. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, famous for their involvement in Facebook ... A Bitcoin ETF, such as the one proposed by the Winklevoss twins, would have the digital currency bitcoin as an underlying asset. That means that by purchasing a bitcoin ETF, an investor would be indirectly purchasing bitcoin, as he or she would be holding the bitcoin ETF in a portfolio as opposed to the actual digital currency itself. However, as the ETF would closely track the price of ...
