@nic__carter 1/ TOUR-DE-FORCE, *MUST READ* from @nic_carter. Well-researched & well-reasoned. I don't agree w/ all of it, but it's a timely call to arms to #bitcoin intermediaries to PROVE YOUR SOLVENCY cryptograhpically. Thanks for naming names, Nic. I wasn't aware that one exchange has...
@nic__carter @nic_carter 2/ ...routinely issued #ProofofSolvency reports (Coinfloor). Your point is well-taken that Coinfloor puts its better-capitalized competitors to shame--bc when an intermediary holds 100% reserves, that means it is SOLVENT & it doesn't really matter how well-capitalized it is. I'd
@nic__carter @nic_carter 3/ ...rather trade via a small but provably solvent counterparty than a big but insolvent one any day. @nic__carter's chart is worth studying in detail & it shows what everyone should realize--that we're in a debtor/creditor relationship with #crypto exchanges when they take...

1/ ANYONE CURIOUS how US laws enable the #securities industry to create phantom securities, eg Dole Food case (36.7m shares outstanding but brokerage statements showed 49.2m valid owners)? The Uniform Commercial Code’s Article 8 indirect ownership regime, enacted in 1994 in all..
2/ ...50 states, enabled this. And now the Uniform Law Commission wants to apply this to #bitcoin & #virtualcurrencies—UGH!!! It’s a recipe for insolvent financial institutions & consumers losing money! The pics in this thread speak volumes abt the loopholes in UCC Art 8 that...
3/ ...enable creation of phantom securities. This is just WRONG! It changed what used to be a clear, direct property right for securities into an “attenuated property right which looks much more like a contract right against the [leveraged securities] intermediary.” This comes...

1/ CRINGE ALERT: if the regulator of your #crypto exchange/custodian requires this, run! "A DAB (digital asset biz) shld have a minimum amount of assets on-hand, within the organisation, to withstand the withdrawal of all client assets." @BermudaMonetary

2/ I found that gem in Bermuda's "Digital Asset Custody Code of Practice." Consumer protection is listed as the first core objective of the effort (bma.bm/BMANEWS/BMA%20…). Sorry, but I don't see much meaningful consumer protection in here. @TraceMayer would probably agree...
3/ ...and here's another gem, in a section titled Account Segregation🤔:
"While keeping client assets separate from its own, DABs may commingle client assets..." Believe it or not, the quote in the prior tweet was in a section titled Proof of Reserves! There's a lot of great...

Time for some real talk. If you got into this to turn your dollars into more dollars, move along. If you got into this because of what crypto can be - what we can build together – then today is important. Read this.
2/Today is #proofofkeys day. It’s when you should finally move your crypto off exchange and into a wallet where you can control your own money. There are lots of wallets that will let you do that. @blockchain, @edgewallet, @brdhq, @samouraiwallet etc.
3/ Obviously I think @blockchain is the best of the bunch. But I chose to work here because of the mission: to help you Be Your Own Bank® - that’s the important part and many self-custody wallets can help you do this.
