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.

Think Your Life Is Hard? Man Threw Out Bitcoin Hard Drive Now  Worth $80m!

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

A man has shared his pain after unknowingly unconsciously tossing out a Bitcoin hard drive seven years ago. The hard drive is now worth $80 million. Campbell Simpson, supervisor of tech site Gizmodo Australia, says he passed up a major opportunity for amazing wealth since he ejected a piece hard drive containing 1400 bitcoins. Seven years later, the Bitcoin market soared and Mr. Simpson’s apparently unimportant web money, which he purchased for $25, is currently worth $80 million dollars.

Bitcoin, which is online cash connected to a client’s digital wallet, is payment used to trade on the web and is acknowledged by numerous organizations. In 2010 Mr. Simpson’s 1400 Bitcoins were just worth around $25, however now, one Bitcoin is worth over $4,000.

‘I didn’t need or think about, anything on it. So I discarded it,’ he said.

At the point when usage utilization on the web began to explode, Mr. Simpson consistently – but bitterly – checked how much his 1400 was worth. After understanding his Bitcoin accumulation would have been worth $4000 a couple months later, Mr. Simpson was marginally irritated.

In any case, this month Bitcoin achieved a noteworthy high value, making his once-measly hard drive of worthless crypto a $6 million gold mine.

‘This is presumably a ridiculous thing, looking back, that I’ve at any point done. Also, I’ve done a considerable amount of idiotic things a ton of times,’ Mr. Simpson said.

The tech author says he has been offered advice on the best way to potentially recover the long-gone hard drive, however, he concedes he won’t try attempting to discover it. ‘I don’t even want to discover those Bitcoin, though. I’m truly content with my life right now. I needn’t bother with them,’ he wrote. ‘I’m for the most part really nice in life, I think, and I can giggle about it for like 95% of the time.’

Despite admitting he is not in desperate need of the hard drive, Mr. Simpson bemoaned the type of lifestyle he could live if he had $6 million – and says he could have even purchased a house in Sydney, ‘I could have purchased a house. In Sydney. At Sydney costs. I could have traveled the world or purchased a goddamn yacht or something,’ he added.

Here is a string of tweets he posted earlier this year:

 

Seems pretty pissed to me! What do you think of this unfortunate event? Let me know in the comment section below.

Rumours of Acquisition

The rumours of the acquisition first came out in March; however, at that time they showed that the investment will be made by Yahoo Japan through YJFX, which is its forex transaction platform, and not through Z Corporation.

In a statement, Yahoo Japan said:

“By utilizing the service operation and security expertise of the Yahoo group, we support the operation of exchanges operated by BitArgo Exchange Tokyo.” Yahoo Japan also added that the exchange intends to offer services for customers that are secure and easy to use.

Monex Group

Japan is considered as an industry hub as it has above three million domestic crypto-traders. The news of Yahoo Japan’s investment showed up just after days when the financial regulator of the country ordered crypto exchanges; FSHO and Eternal Link, to stop operations due to inadequate KYC procedures. Similarly, another prominent acquisition happened this month – Monex Group announced that it struck a deal to acquire Coincheck exchange, as it went through a major hack at the beginning of this year.

After the Yahoo crypto news, Monex, which is known as a major Japanese online brokerage has confirmed its acquisition of Coincheck and was undeterred even with Coincheck getting lots of criticism for negligent-security procedures the whole year that led it to the mugging of $530 million of NEM tokens from its wallet.

Even with interruptions, SB, which is a Japanese banking giant is set to launch its own cryptocurrency exchange after firming up the security measures when the FSA is considering to ramp up its scrutiny of exchanges after the theft of Coincheck. Also, Messaging giant Line, that has a market cap of more than $9 billion and has almost 600 million registered users as well as 200 million monthly active users, has also filed an application with FSA in order to launch its own cryptocurrency exchange in Japan.

The Dos and Don’ts of Safe Peer-to-Peer Bitcoin Trading

Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

 

For some reasons, people are hesitant to buy bitcoins in face-to-face transactions. They are afraid of the risk that comes with it and would rather trust a Bitcoin exchange with their bitcoins. However, every method comes with its own set of dos and don’ts.

This post will outline the various dos and don’ts you must keep in mind while trading bitcoin face-to-face.

 

Carry your device with you

Do not forget to carry your personal device, be it your mobile phone, laptop or tablet when you’re going to the meeting. Make sure that you already have a bitcoin wallet if you’re the buyer. It is best to take your own device so that you can verify the trade on it rather than filling out your personal information on the other party’s device.

 

Do not cancel trade if price of Bitcoin drops

Feedback is everything. Do not try to walk out on a trade when you can negotiate. If the prices have dropped then it is best to try to negotiate on a price that benefits both the parties. When you cancel a trade, it is going to lessen your chances of earning a good feedback early.

 

Decide on a price ahead of time

To avoid any debate on the price later on during the meeting, it is best to agree on a price beforehand. Do not try to get a higher rate out of the seller after the price has been decided, this attitude can cause things to go sour very quickly. If possible, get an escrow service as it guarantees the payment to the seller and the buyer is sure that he will receive the bitcoins before releasing the payment.

 

Don’t expect to get rich overnight

You need to keep track of the rapid price changes taking place while trading. You need to prove that you are a good and reliable buyer/seller in order to gain a better reputation on any exchange platform. Be sure to remain patient when dealing with bitcoins, as nothing comes easily. Do not be fixed onto selling your bitcoins the moment it hits a high note since it is very volatile.

 

If you follow these pointers, then you are sure to develop a good reputation on any exchange platforms and have nothing to fear.

According to a Bloomberg report, a list of strategies for the regulation of ICO (Initial Coin Offering) has been released by the a research group at Tama University, in Japan. The list also explains strategies to fully legalize the ICOs.

Guidelines for ICO Regulation

The list of guidelines includes regulations for:

  • Tracking project development
  • AML (Anti-Money Laundering)
  • Identifying investors
  • Protecting the debt holders and current detachment

The Financial Services Agency of Japan will be cautious on the proposal, as it could be ultimately made into the law just within few years’ time, Bloomberg reported.

The paper creates issuance rules, for example; defining and revealing methods following the development of white papers, and disclosing the possible impacts on debt holders, shareholders, and token investors. In addition to that, the paper specifies particular trading rules, including:

  • Verification of customer’s identity
  • Suitability (Know Your Customer)
  • The allowance of industry’s wide-minimum standards on the listing of tokens.
  • The restriction of biased trade practices such as insider trading.

Regulations will be Applied to Three Types of ICOs

While acknowledging that it is quite hard at this time to classify the whole legal ICO, as many are impending, the unidentified types might be still present. According to the paper, the rules will be applied to only three types of ICO:

  • A large company type for in-house.
  • A venture company type.
  • An ecosystem type of joint exertions with numerous firms or government entities.

In the report, ICOs are clearly identified as securities and have the same position as the US SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission).

According to a researcher, Kenji Marashima:

“ICOs are groundbreaking technology, so if we can implement good principles and rules, they have the potential to become a new way to raise funding.”

One mentor of the study group is Takuya Hirai. He is a member of the leading Liberal Democratic Party, as well as, one of the planners of a regulation legalizing crypto-exchanges in Japan. Other members of the group are:

  • Yuzo Kano, who is the head of bitFlyer Inc., which is the largest Bitcoin exchange in Japan.
  • Mitsubishi UFJ Mizuho Financial Group Inc.
  • Financial Group Inc.
  • Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc.

The publication of these ICO-friendly guidelines is set against the positions of South Korea and China, as last year, both of these countries banned ICOs.
