1/ My views in EconomicTimes on #Libra: “If @facebook were to design the Libra to be a closed system, only to be transacted on its network and not beyond, #RBI should ideally be less concerned, since the #coin does not engage with the external economy” bit.ly/2Ro8jpC
2/ “If it is not meant to operate in a closed system, then it is exactly the kind of #DigitalAssets that concerns RBI. #regulations as currently drafted seem to indiscriminately apply to both the above examples.”
3/ "The argument that this is a #stablecoin — a #cryptocurrency whose value is pegged to be as stable as the dollar — is unlikely to pass muster with the banking regulator, due to concerns around tax evasion, money laundering and fraud" @ikigailaw

1/ 6 PREDICTIONS about what @Facebook's #cryptocurrency means. Grab the popcorn bc I analyzed publicly disclosed info to make 6 predictions, of which 2 will be controversial (#2 and #6). @ForbesCrypto #Libra #bitcoin forbes.com/sites/caitlinl…
2/ First prediction: @Facebook's #stablecoin will be a positive force in developing countries. Second: @Facebook will pay #interest to users of its #cryptocurrency, which will eventually lead to populist calls to repeal subsidies at the heart of the US banking system.
3/ It's true that #stablecoin issuers generally pocket the float on the assets backing the coins, but I go out on a limb & predict there's no way @Facebook will be able to pocket these big profits w/o sharing them with users. To be clear I haven't seen @Facebook disclose this.

0/ Sometimes people only look at a Complaint and then ignore the lawsuit as it moves forward. That's a mistake. Sometimes the Defendant's response is just as important for either what they say or don't say. #Bitfinex #LetsDiveIn - iapps.courts.state.ny.us/fbem/DocumentD…
1) #Bitfinex moves to vacate the #PreliminaryInjunction - Obvious move, because the #PreliminaryInjunction as written (especially as it relates to the discovery) is VERY bad for them. The more people say Tether is backed by 74% is also bad...
2) Page 1, Paragraph 2 says in BOLD that the parties have been "cooperating for months." Ummmm, if #Bitfinex had been cooperating for months, it wouldn't find itself in this position. The amount of pages produced does not = cooperation. #MyGuessIsItWasCloserToStonewalling

1/ *Centralized* apps building atop decentralized protocols may be the winning combination, each furthering the adoption of the other.
2/ As many have pointed out, “decentralize all the things” is a mistake. Decentralize the things that benefit from decentralization.
3/ Starting with centralized apps (think @coinbase @circlepay etc), if you’ve been paying attention, they are utilizing an increasing amount of decentralized protocols & open-source crypto infrastructure, to the benefit of their end users.
