Opinion-ECHO: Blockchain becomes boring – in the best sense of the word

After the ups and downs of Bitcoin & Co. last year, the MIT Technology Review forecasts a „boring“ blockchain year 2019. Jed McCaleb still considers the crypto market to be overvalued and states that Stellar no longer looks at prices, but only at technology. This is „bullshit“ in most projects. John McAfee thinks the latter is tax-paying, which is why he reveals on Twitter that he hasn’t paid taxes in eight years. The opinion ECHO of the first calendar week 2019.

John McAfee makes no secret of his hatred of the Bitcoin formula

He has now announced on Twitter that he has not filed a tax return for eight years. The enfant terrible of the Bitcoin formula scene justifies this with five arguments:

Taxation is illegal.
I have already paid tens of millions and received Jack Sh*t in services.
I am done making money.
I live on cash from McAfee Inc.
My net income is negative.
McAfee is increasingly shooting himself into the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which he feels persecuted by (for whatever reason).

I have not filed a tax return for 8 years. Why? 1: taxation is illegal. 2: I paid tens of millions already and received Jack Shit in services. 3. I’m done making money. I live off of cash from McAfee Inc. My net income is negative. But i am a prime target for the IRS. Here I am.

While McAfee is pestering the tax authorities in particular, Craig „Faketoshi“ Wright apparently feels increasingly annoyed by Altcoin supporters. Wright had to listen to some of them at least since the last Bitcoin Cash Hard Fork. Among other things, that the creation of Bitcoin Satoshi Vision was responsible for the tightening of the bear market. Before Wright set his Twitter account to „private“, he shot against crypto expert Andreas Antonopoulos:

„The renowned Shitcoin expert Andreas Antonopoulos is so far from understanding Bitcoin as one can be. The only thing [he] does right is spell Bitcoin right.“

Now Wright only allows opinions in his Safe Space that are consistent with his own. Chapeau!

Tom Lee: Dow Jones is in a midlife crisis

Bitcoin bull and Fundstrat CEO Tom Lee sees the Dow Jones in a midlife crisis. The US Federal Reserve is not completely uninvolved in this. Like President Trump, Lee is critical of the last increase in the key interest rate last December:

„I think the Fed has really undermined the liquid markets. This has really worsened the trade dynamic,

Lee said on CNBC.

What the whole thing has to do with a midlife crisis, however, Tom Lee left open. Rumours that the Dow Jones has bought a motorcycle and wants to start a new life with a much younger partner remain unconfirmed.
