Chinese entrepreneur Sam Ling and his partner spent 2.35 million US Dollars in 2015, on a bid on a private lunch with one of the richest man in the world. This richest man was no other than Warren Buffett, whom Sam Ling still considers his idol. The main purpose of such a costly and unusual lunch was that they were hoping to get some real time advice from the legendary investor in terms of their cryptocurrency index project which could lead to nourish their future investment plans in the same direction. Even today, the 31-year-old Sam Ling still uses the photo of that memorable buffett as his phone’s wallpaper to pay a debut to the legendary Warren Buffet however, his present day intentions are quiet thrilling as now he has a motto of beating his hero on the sticky grounds of cryptocurrency.

In Spite of such “Deadly” intentions, Sam Ling, now founder and CEO of Supwin Financial Services Group exclaimed in his interview with CNBC that Buffett is still his idol, he has been pursuing and studying his investment strategies for so many years just as a loyal fan of his without any ill intentions.

 

In fact that loyalty of Sam King did not stop him from betting even something bigger than his last bet on Buffett. According to Sam’s opinion the world’s third-richest person Warren Buffett will come to a bad ending due to cryptocurrency index fund.

What Did Sam Learn From Warren Buffett?

Many people have asked that question from Sam Ling which also seems to be a key to his present day success. The answer of Sam to that question is very simple, If there’s anything really learned from Buffett, it was just an appreciation for index funds. Ling, however, innovated that outlook to his own concept of digital currency kingdom.

 

The term cryptocurrency index may be new for some our readers as it is not commonly used. The fact is that most of the cryptocurrencies i.e; bitcoin are too much unstable to become a trusted mode of investment, and that’s why investors like Sam Ling have started to launch cryptocurrency indexes of their own in order to bring their crypto investments to a relatively safer mode. It has been noted that over the past few months, Sam Ling’s cryptocurrency index has a lower decline rate as compared to the bitcoin. That ratio pertains to the corrections, on the other hand outperformed bitcoin by 50 to 80 percent during upsurges.

Further Progress By Ling

Ling has not stopped yet, he has finalized his plans to launch the “BB Index”, which is an advanced form of that kind of index and will consist of a family of 26 cryptocurrency indexes. These indexes would be further grouped by market capitalization according to their categories and strategy. These indexes would range from a “Blockchain Top 7 Index”  to a “Blockchain Top 50 ex top 20 Token Index”.

 

The major difference between these two kinds of Blockchains is that the “Blockchain Top 7 Index” covers the largest cryptocurrencies while “Blockchain Top 50 ex top 20 Token Index” is used to represent mid-cap assets. All these indexes are updated every three minutes on the company’s official website according to Sam Ling.

A Summary Of Buffet’s Conversation With Ling

Later Sam Ling shared a summary of his conversation with Buffet. He related that Buffett discussed a lot of core issues with him and his friend during that precious lunch, but in the end, he just gave them a piece of advice that they should focus on what they were doing and were already successful at. Ling further recalled the conversation which took place ten years ago in which Buffett made it clear that he believed in the craze of cryptocurrencies which will not come an end and will keep on increasing with the passage of time.

 

When asked what were his thoughts about the fate of cryptocurrencies, Ling exclaimed that in his opinion cryptocurrencies would meet a very bad ending and those who are investing in it including his idol Buffet, they would have to pay for their overconfidence.

 

On the other hand Ling also stated that he was quiet confident that the BB Index devised by him would even beat traditional crypto investor including Buffett. He further stated that Warren Buffett just won a 10-years bet stating that an index fund would outperform a collection of hedge funds over that time. Now, Ling has a bet that his cryptocurrency index will outperform Buffett’s portfolio over the same period of time.

 

According to a correspondent of CNBC when they reached out to Warren Buffett’s office in order to know his views in this regard, they could not receive any satisfactory response.

REPORT: South Korea Is Considering to Reverse Ban on ICOs

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

According to the latest report, in the coming months, ban on the ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) by South Korea could be eased. In September, it was reported that the Financial Services Commission of the country had moved to ban the blockchain funding model. However, the latest report by the “Korea Times” claims that there’s a chance that the ban may get lifted, especially for token sales.

ICOs

From an anonymous source, it’s stated;

“The financial authorities have been talking to the country’s tax agency, justice ministry, and other relevant government offices about a plan to allow ICOs in Korea when certain conditions are met.”

Even with the local ban, a lot of cryptocurrency users in South Korea are still contributing to international ICOs. The official at the FSC (Financial Service Commission), that manages and supervises the cryptocurrency trading rules, Kang Young-soo, has denied to give any statement on ICOs and just said that third-party-view is being considered by FSC.

Moreover, Young-soo has also confirmed that the government is also looking forward to make a whole lot better infrastructure for regulating the trades of cryptocurrency and also to advance blockchain technologies. On the other hand, international cryptocurrency market is presenting new challenges for lawmakers as well.

At this time, there’s a ban on the overseas residents from trading cryptocurrency in South Korea. The main purpose of this ban is to curb money laundering and other cross-border crimes that might be possible. Meanwhile, it’s been reported that the officials of South Korea are having a word with counterparts in China and Japan, in order to discover regulatory collaboration, which at the same time, also means that any final regimes could be settled with those countries.

Right now, the biggest problem that the government is facing with cryptocurrencies is its inability to efficiently control taxes from cities that hold the currency. Though, countries like Japan have shown a way of managing it, by taking each ICO on a case by case method, while other countries like China have chosen a total ban. China is showing no sign of willingness to ease this ban on the ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings), as this is the country’s own ban, which was revealed in early September to South Korea’s announcement. When a ban on ICO was announced by South Korea, it was really discouraging, as this country is best known for accepting and implementing the latest technologies.

On Monday, the social media giant Twitter confirmed the rumours that it is going to follow Google and Facebook by banning cryptocurrency advertisements from the website.

According to the announcement, ICO ads, as well as advertisements related to exchanges, token sales, and wallet services (apart from public companies that are registered on the prime stock markets) will be removed from the site. A spokesperson said that the aim of this move is to make sure the safety of Twitter’s community.

New Twitter Policy

This Twitter ICO news went viral as the social media giant clarified:

“We have added a new policy for Twitter Ads relating to a cryptocurrency. Under this new policy, the advertisement of ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) and token sales will be prohibited globally.”

This latest twitter policy will be introduced within the next 30 days. But on the other hand, Twitter will be limiting advertisement for cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan to those, who are under the observation of the national financial regulator.

There were many rumours before that Twitter would ban advertisements related to cryptocurrency especially, when it was first reported by Sky News that such content would be banned from the Twitter’s platform within the next two weeks.

What Jack Dorsey has to say about it?

CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey, has conceded the proliferation of cryptocurrency scam accounts earlier, and pledged to crack down on bot accounts in search of cryptocurrencies from others.

Though, some of the site’s response exertions have led to account issues for standard users. According to Twitter, safety for users is the main motivator behind this ban. Few actions were also taken by Twitter in order to prevent accounts related to cryptocurrencies from engaging with others in an illusory manner, but then again it met calls to ratify more actions, subsequent to the bans from Google and Facebook.

Impact of Twitter’s Announcement on Crypto-Market

Cryptocurrency markets were already going through a slump, but after the announcement of Twitter banning cryptocurrency advertisements, the market fell even more.

While talking to Reuters, Kapronasia’s director of financial consultancy, Zennon Kapron mentioned the perils to Twitter itself and said:

“With the increasing number of ICOs coming to market, it is an impossible task for anyone, much fewer platforms like Twitter or Facebook, to keep on top of which ICOs and cryptocurrencies are genuine versus frauds… Although certainly, ICO advertising must have been a significant source of revenue for Twitter, the repercussions of fraudulent activities just weren’t worth the risk.”

In January 2018, Facebook restricted cryptocurrency advertising while the ban from Google was announced at the beginning of this month.

Bitcoin Mining Energy Consumption: Generating Bitcoin Requires A Lot of Energy!

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

As you already know that bitcoin is purely digital, so there’s no physical digging in it. And in a world of virtual currency, such creation is known as mining. However, the computer power needs a lot of electricity to create digital tokens.

According to Alex de Vries (an economist who tracks energy use in the industry), each digital token consumes energy, equivalent to an average American household burns in two years.

If we talk about the total number of computers that are plugged into bitcoin network, then the energy consumed by the network is equivalent to the energy of a medium-size country. The network that supports the second most valuable virtual currency, Ethereum, also consumes energy in a hefty amount.

Bitcoin and Ethereum are consuming so much energy that now it has become a part of a debate among some people. Since the energy consumption of these systems has risen, the prices of these virtual currencies have also gotten very high.

Vitalik Buterin (the creator of Ethereum), is trying to find out ways so the tokens can be created without requiring that much energy. He said that he’d feel unhappy if his main contribution to the world was adding Cyprus’s worth of electricity consumption to the global warming.

According to Peter Van Valkenburgh (director of research at Coin Centre), such electricity usage is really important. This argument has its essentials in the complex systems that create tokens like Bitcoin and Ether, the currency on the Ethereum network, and other new virtual currencies.

The enticement of new bitcoins is encouraging people to use fast computers and lots of electricity in order to find the right answer and to unlock new bitcoins that are distributed every 10 minutes. The process was well-defined by the original Bitcoin software, which was released in 2009.

Bitcoin Mining Energy Consumption

At this time, the 12.5 bitcoins that are being distributed every 10 minutes are worth about $145,000 and people are willing to invest in it, which shows why there are huge server farms around the world that are devoted to bitcoin mining.

This process is essential for Bitcoin’s existence, as all the computers are serving as accountants for the Bitcoin network. No one can fudge the records and dominate the accounting as the mining race is meant to be really hard. According to Satoshi Nakamoto (the creator of virtual currency), the system was designed to thwart greedy attackers who might try to change the records.

Because of mining and accounting rules, the attackers have been kept away and the network is still safely going on. However, there’s been a disagreement over the original value of bitcoin and the network that supports it.

Marc Bevand (a miner and analyst) wrote in his blog that “labelling bitcoin mining as a waste is a failure to look at the bigger picture”. Although some people who are interested in all that innovation are anxious about the massive use of electricity. The concern about the use of electricity has become a subject of debate among many, however, other virtual currencies like Stellar and Ripple that were created after the Bitcoin don’t require much electricity.

The new mining process has been proposed by Mr Buterin for Ethereum. This process has been already used by some other smaller cryptocurrencies. New coins are distributed to only those people who are able to prove their ownership of existing coins. The current method totally relies on computational power and it just needs lots of computers which can play an important part in the computational race.

According to Mr Van Valkenburgh from the Coin Centre, if you want strong security at the moment, then you need proof of work.
