February 24, 2018 Jamie Redman 0

Gifting Bitcoin Is One Way a Person Can Avoid Paying Crypto-TaxesAfter the newly written U.S. tax laws recently passed, cryptocurrency investors realized the tax-free exemption filing 1031 for IRS reporting is no longer applicable to their digital asset investments.

PR: Why the Bitcoin Holders Should Hurry up to Invest in e-Chat Before March 1, 2018

February 24, 2018 Bitcoin.com PR 0

e-Chat ICOAccording to the decision made by the e-Chat management team, the main round of ICO is extended until March 1, 2018. There are a couple of reasons for that.

1) The e-Chat team is still hesitant about the e-Chat Ethereum fork. As it was mentioned before, the fork might take place right after the ICO. Due to that e-Chat has started a poll where all users have an opportunity to vote for the fork or against it. Two additional weeks of ICO will give e-Chat followers a chance to make up their mind and the team will have a better vision of the startup, which is very important for the further development.

What is the purpose of BCH? and payment coins that are neither the #1, or #1 when it comes to fundamentals. No FUD, wondering why I Shouldn’t sell those.

February 24, 2018 /u/Jbergene 0

Good saturday folks

BTC core is coming out with LN. That is going to be extremely fast. (I Personally have no faith in it, but that is another topic).

NANO has instant, no fees transactions. No fees!

IOTA has about the same as NANO (though IOTA is currently under development).

Could anyone then tell me why I should keep my BCH?

I’m picturing a scenario 10 years from now. I’m going to sell my old 1080 TI card to my buddy for 10$. He comes over to my house, it checks out, and he asks me what I want to get payed with. I answer him “whatever, doesnt matter”. Because with NANO it takes 2 seconds and its done. With BCH it takes 2 seconds for the transaction to reach the mempool and I don’t need the confirmation for such low sum of money.

But the next month, I’m selling my car. Since I was the crypto king in my town, its not just any car. Its the “Future car name here” that costs 50M $!

Buyer comes by. Everything checks, and he wishes to pay. Logically, I would take NANO this time. I get the entire amount instantly. And he can take the keys and drive home.

With BCH I would need at least 6 confirmations to trust such a huge sum of money to be valid transfered. He would have to come back later, or stick around playing video games with me until it was complete.

So why BCH? (Or LTC, Monero, or X coin that falls between the most popular, and the best tech).

What is the pros of BCH that overweighs the wait time?

Hoping for a great answer.

Have a nice weekend in the meantime.

cheers
