Bitcoin ETF's on the Horizon



Article: Bitcoin ETFs on the Horizon - Barron's

Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency enthusiasts have been hoping for the intersection of crypto and established investing for a while now. Exchange-traded fund provider REX is hoping to introduce two Bitcoin-based ETF's, which are Exchange-Traded Funds. Those are funds that trade on the stock market.

Naturally, the SEC, the Securities and Exchange Commission, would have to approve! But, the push to make it happen is there, so it is sounding like the possibility could become reality.

HIVE Becomes First Cryptocurrency Stock



Article: HIVE Blockchain Technologies (TSXV:HIVE) (OTCMKTS:PRELF) Is One Of The Top Bitcoin Stocks Around - Insider Financial

Company Site: HIVE Blockchain Technologies - Main Site

Cryptocurrency enthusiasts have been wanting to know when there would be a stock market play for Bitcoin, Blockchain or mining. This week, it happened! HIVE Blockchain Technologies is now trading on the Canadian TSX Venture Exchange, and as an OTC stock on the U.S. market.

HIVE is buying mining time off of Genesis Mining, who is considered the leading cloud mining supplier. HIVE proposes to use their capital to do mining and produce income. It should be interesting to see how it all pans out.

Now, there has been Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC), which is traded on the OTC market. But, that is basically just a bunch of Bitcoin. You can directly buy Bitcoin on many well-regarded exchanges, making GBTC fairly redundant. HIVE is actually a company that is directly engaged in the Blockchain.

Now, folks, this is speculative stuff! It's up to you if you're going to spend money on this. But, I basically just took money generated from my bond funds and bought a smaller amount of the OTC. You can invest in the Canadian stock directly through certain brokerages. I have only dipped my toes into two OTC stocks ever. This one, and Tencent of China, who provides internet products, similar to those of Baidu, who are on the regular U.S. stock market.

Hans Zimmer Takes Over "Blade Runner 2049" Scoring



Article: Have we reached peak Hans Zimmer? - Guardian

Movie Site: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ - Warner Bros.



Jóhann Jóhannsson (or as I call him, Jo Jo) ;-) is out as composer of "Blade Runner 2049." In is the ever-reliable Hans Zimmer. But, Zimmer isn't being well-received as a replacement by all! There is a #StopHansZimmer hashtag running around. The article above goes into it.

Otherwise, I thought that Villeneuve used Jóhannsson as his regular composer. Apart from that, I have low confidence in this sequel being worth that much. The first film is perfect, and ends perfectly. Zero reason for a sequel. But, if the money potential is there, Hollywood's going to do it anyway! :-P And, where the heck is Vangelis? I know he hasn't done film composing for a while, but I hope that they at least TRIED to get him for this thing. We'll see what Zimmer does, but I'm not pre-ordering the soundtrack. :-)

JP Morgan Goes to War with Bitcoin



Article: Bitcoin is a fraud that will blow up, says JP Morgan boss - The Guardian

Article: Genesis Mining billboards say Jamie Dimon is right - 'Bitcoin will eat your lunch' - IBT

JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon has gone to war with Bitcoin. In a set of angry remarks, Dimon said that Bitcoin is only good “If you were in Venezuela or Ecuador or North Korea or a bunch of parts like that, or if you were a drug dealer, a murderer, stuff like that, you are better off doing it in bitcoin than US dollars.”

Naturally, anyone whose fortunes are rooted in the traditional economy are going to be threatened by cryptocurrencies. It's just entertaining to watch someone so publicly lose their @#$% over it!

Entertainingly, Genesis Mining, who provides Bitcoin mining services, is having a lot of fun with Dimon, putting up billboards mocking him!

Kik Messenger Tokens on Sale



Official Site: Kin - Kik Messenger

Article: Messaging App Kik Opens Registration for Its Token Sale - Observer.com

Article: Messaging App Kik Bets on Teenagers to Take Cryptocurrency Mainstream - Observer.com

I am still getting used to cryptocurrency! Hey, I've only been researching it for about 10 days now! But, one of the more interesting aspects is the world of ICO's, Initial Coin Exchanges. These are the crypto versions of the stock market's IPO's, Initial Public Offerings.

In this case, companies are offering tokens to the public for the first time. These tokens can later be converted to cryptocurrency. Kin is an Ethereum token being offered by Kik, the Canadian company that runs the messaging app.

Registration closed this past Saturday, September 9. I missed it, so I will have to watch from the sidelines. It should be interesting to see how it goes! There are other ICO's currently going. The most prominent are KickICO, which concerns ICO's themselves, and Social, based in Social Media.
