John McAfee: bitcoin acts as a drug for cartels
From September 23rd, we will see if the hype around the Bakkt brand of Bitcoin Futures was justified. Next, namely, trading in physically settled Bitcoin futures should begin. Apparently, John McAfee, the enfant terrible of the crypto scene, can not wait: in a tweet of September 20, the controversial computer security giant announces the launch of Bakkt today, September 21. That said, McAfee is optimistic about Bakkt's signal in favor of a wider adoption of Bitcoin:
BAKKT will live tomorrow. It's an institutionalized exchange, so I do not want to use it, but the institutions want to have a level of trust that they did not have. Ctypto could be adopted quickly. But remember – it's the opposite of the movement of freedom.

Bakkt will live tomorrow. It's an institutionalized exchange, so I'm not going to use it, but the institutions will feel a degree of confidence they did not have before. This could accelerate the introduction of cryptography. But remember, it's the opposite of the movement for freedom.
On the suspicion of a Twitterati that Bakkt is rightly put forward responses McAfee:
Law. And this is necessary for much of the mass. But just like buying drugs at organized crime syndicates – use the offer, if necessary, but do not be infected with the state of mind that underlies it.
Binance: Venus> Balance
Samuel Lim, Head of Compliance at Bitcoins 'Bitcoins' Bitance in Binance, sees his stable coin project "Venus" as a serious competition for the Facebeook Coin Libra. In conversation with English-language crypto-media Coindesk Lim points out that Binance has more than a block away thanks to its many years of experience in Blockchain Space Facebook:
You can say that it is an answer to Libra, or an alternative to Libra. I would say that it is like a powerful competitor of Libra. We know what we are doing. It's not like Facebook, they say they're a blockchain team. We have been involved in this activity since day one and CZ (Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance) has been doing this for over ten years.
For Venus not to succumb to a regulatory challenge like Libra, Binance would like to congratulate governments and central banks in the coming months:
I can say that over the next three to six months we will work hard to establish partnerships with governments, central banks and large corporations,
so opposite Lim Coindesk,
Cardano boss sees opportunity for Libra in Europe
Despite the negative tone that resonates in the Facebook coin project of the European Union, particularly from France and Germany, Cardano's founder, Charles Hoskinson, keeps the resistance u. at. from Federal Finance Minister Scholz for the fight against wind turbines. He justifies this decipher with the heterogeneous composition of Europe:
I do not think that there is a single cryptocurrency policy in Europe. Europe is not a hegemony in which there is only one universal voice. Rather, it is an accumulation of different impartial interests (sic), sometimes going in one direction, sometimes in the other.
Of course, this very sharp analysis of Hoskinson applies only until Germany and France prove to the European Parliament that hegemony can also prevail in a similar form. True to the motto: all are identical, but some are identical.
Charlie Lee self-criticism wants a litecoin without Charlie Lee
Charlie Lee is known to be the face of Bitcoin Brother Litecoin. In the meantime, apparently to his great sorrow. In an interview with the crypto blog Crypto Late The founder of the Litecoin Foundation expressed his concern about his central role in the project:
What I want from Litecoin is that it does not need me at any given moment, so it's a decentralized currency. Having a centralized figurehead is counterproductive. Because then I become a central point of failure.
Can you stand that?
