  • 12:37 SEC Released Investment Tips for 2019: Always Check Whether an Initial Coin Offering Is Registered with the SEC

    The U.S. Security and Exchange Commission has released the Investor Bulletin: 10 Investment Tips for 2019 on Feb 12. The SEC has suggested investors check whether an offering is registered with the SEC by using the SEC's EDGAR database or contacting the SEC's toll-free investor assistance line at (800)-732-0330. According to SEC's statement, "Any offer or sale of securities must be either registered with the SEC or exempt from registration. Otherwise, it is illegal. This has taken heightened importance with the advent of initial coin offerings as many of these offerings may involve securities. Registration is important because it provides investors access to key information about the company's management, products, services, and finances."

  • 11:50 VISA and Mastercard Considering an Increase in Transaction Fees Might Be a Plus for BTC and Crypto

    A VISA spokesperson confirmed that fees would indeed go up in April, but only for merchant banks. The latter are financial institutions such as JP Morgan, Citigroup and Bank of America that maintain accounts for sellers such as Amazon and other large retailers. According to the Wall Street Journal, up to 2.5% of the value of goods and services is used to cover transaction fees. This in turn means that if the hike is implemented, the merchants might decide to pass over the new costs to consumers.
    One is tempted to exclude BTC when comparing transaction costs, but when we consider the recent implementations of the Lightning Network and SegWit, the network has become less costly when transacting. One researcher put the median transaction cost on the BTC network at around $0.02 via a tweet.
