There is only one legit, trustful and regulated broker allowing trading cryptocurrencies. The only drawback is the fees up to 1% when trading !!!

ICO is something to be in the hands of government, that is a public container of wealth not belong to any specific individual.

wow, $46,500! What can you say? -- will be epic when it crashes? 

Then, of course, there's the infamous Craig Wright (the putative 1/2-Satoshi), who apparently lost the private key that he shared with his late partner Dave Kleiman (the other putative 1/2-Satoshi) to 1 million bitcoins. Wasn't JohnLeM looking to give a Darwin award to a mathematician? Well -- there you go -- I'd say losing track of the key to $46.5 Billion qualifies!.

@Alan, none of these two are dead, or mathematicians, and they do hire lawyers: they disqualified for Darwin Awards for mathematicians.

Well, unfortunately Dave Kleiman is indeed dead.
Whether or not you want to call CW a mathematician is perhaps arguable; he says he has a Statistics Master
He has indeed hired lawyers.

Since all the banks and investment houses and ultimately global governments are all getting in the mix.....defi will soon be de-defi.

The only reasonable outcome is a total ban, with the obvious exception that North Korea and the ‘Ndrangheta will honor them.
