A TLDR analisys of the ULC Bitlicense being introduce in California, Nevada, Hawaii, Rhodes Island and Oklahoma.

Dear Bitcoiner,

The ULC Regulation of Virtual-Currency Businesses Act is being proposed again. https://www.uniformlaws.org/committees/community-home?CommunityKey=e104aaa8-c10f-45a7-a34a-0423c2106778

The reason to defeat the bill: https://bitcoinfoundation.org/reject-uniform-regulation-virtual-currency-businesses-act (Bitcoin Foundation) The reason to pass the bill: https://coincenter.org/entry/the-ulc-s-model-act-for-digital-currency-businesses-has-passed-here-s-why-it-s-good-for-bitcoin (Coincenter)

The communication to the players:

https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106686525776060419
The first tweet goes to the president of the Uniform Law Commission, Anita Ramasastry, whom I spoke on the phone when they were drafting the framework of the bill. She and her predecessor could have withhold the bill but decided not to.
The ULC is compose of lawyers and do enjoy a very big reputation in state legislatures. I only talked with her once and she dismissed me as do most of the people that meet me for the first time. In 2017, when they introduced the legislation in Hawaii, Nebraska, and Connecticut, they were all defeated.
The Nebraskan and the Haiwaiian bitcoiners stepped to the plate and massively went to their state capital. The news in Nebraska reported the following: https://youtu.be/wifkSabPEjQ
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106677470709891075
This an Article from the New York Times where they clearly mentioned me by my entrepreneurial skills of being a Bitcoiner. The goal is simply to say: "You have not heard from me in a while since we beat your bill in Nebraska, Hawaii and Connecticut, and I have been busy."
This is to show that I am know by those that matter, the one that create the law. In this article there is a lawmaker that explain to the room with 400 people why I should not be allowed to speak: https://bklyner.com/jumaane-williams-wins-the-kings-county-democratic-committee-endorsement-and-more
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106677471603249153
This is to remind Professor Ramasastry that I have a pending case against the New York Department of Financial Services. Even tough I lost in first instance, there is an appeal going on. She is a lawyer and understand the ramification. President Trump explains the process: https://youtu.be/CKvipt04g8s?t=13

https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106677472412778508
And here is to tell her that the Appellate court will be telecasting the Appeal argument on March 28 and she will be able to follow live.
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106677473306165248 The next one includes an article from the NY Post that made the link between campaign donations from the Winklevoss brothers to the New York Governor after getting their regulatory approval of ZCash and showing that the #Bitlicense will create corruption instead of stopping it.
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106677474434387968 This is me trying to be constructive by reminding her what happened this year in Hawaii. The bill died flat out this year. It did not go very far. I usually include the lawmakers so they start talking to each other.
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106680351726940160
Then I call upon jespow from /Kraken CEO to pay attention. The two time I saw jespow was during Consensus where I am calling for a boycott of Coincenter Gala because of the ULC bitlicense. The last time he saw me was when the Plaza hotel management called the NYPD to get me off the front door and he made the usual wise crack comment.
As he does the grandstanding about the Bitlicense, on the other side he donates a $1 million dollars to Coincenter to fight for the Bitlicense. In that tweet, I show him how the NYPD actually detained me in front of the Mayor of New York City and how I screwed his news cycle.
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106680356508520449 This one is geared toward the Mayor and the Speaker of New York City. They remember how I showed up and surprised at their news conference. The reason they are included is that New York City has a small body called the Commission of public information and communication and I have been bugging them for a long time. It has to do with Privacy: https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1105557477662310402
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106680357376671745 This is a swipe at Paul Vigna and Nathaniel Popper that keep been infatuated by Charlie Shrem, the Winklevoss and the like. Instead of reporting on what I am doing they keep ignoring it and while ratting out jespow as an hypocrite.

https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106686525776060419 AdamBLevine just put out a new /letstalkbitcoin show where pcvcolin explain that California introduced the ULC bitlicense.
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106688667303768065 Telling California Assembly Leader Ian Calderon that he should think twice with continuing of using the ULC bitlicense and should consider tabling the bill. I am explaining that the Blockchain creates an Intangible Commodity and nothing more. I am including New York State Assemblyman Clyde Vanel so they can talk to each other. Clyde know me because we are New Yorkers.

https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106697736735391744 This is to show Ian Calderon how I went after /eff for supporting the ULC bitlicense and force them to retract. In the video their answer is clear. They do not support the bitlicense: https://youtu.be/xn8QKedrkwQ
I had to include them because Kurt is somewhat mad at me for publicly forcing them to have positions.
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106697737632993282 This one is to connect Ian with the Senator Blood from Nebraska. Because she only listened to one side, she really got surprised when all the bitcoiners showed up at the capitol hearing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wifkSabPEjQ
She was good sport, courageous and honest. Each senator get one bill to present and she worked hard for it and she was forced to withdraw it publicly. I know it hurt to see the work vanish in the matter of hours. The goal here is to explain Ian that this is not my first rodeo and that I am a pain in the ass to the most powerful asses in the country and that I really don't want to get all the Californian bitcoiners in his office.
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106697739373633537 I am a Democrat like Ian so I am showing him where I am in front of Representative Maloney (very powerful congress woman) and I am a pain in the ass.
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106697740099219456 I am showing him that I am fearless as a candidate and that the news media in New York took a public swipe at me calling me an ignorant on a very difficult subject.

https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106697740703186946 Why reinvent the wheel? The New York State Senate had a two hours hearing where everyone told them how bad the New York State License was and not to make a the same mistake that was pushed on New York Bitcoiners. https://youtu.be/TMjeuVUTLEE
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106699424636506112
As I was writing my tweets, the American Bar Association published 300 pages document on the state of the Blockchain technology in the United States. I included it so to bring attention that I keep on top of the definitions.
The definition I came up with is the one I would like to be able to prove in court but in New York and on Reddit they call me a Kook. https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1105577873140789248 & https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1105577874759782402
https://twitter.com/theochino/status/1106699427216007168 This last tweet is directed to all the lawyers where I posted the analysis of a big firm to their client no to support my appeal against the Bitlicense.
It's semi technical but I knew since the beginning we were going to lose several time: https://www.reddit.com/usetheochino/draft/1508d2aa-462f-11e9-bd4d-0e536a04f856
We knew we were going to lose at the first two level, https://youtu.be/lj0Zzi3KxJc?t=447
And there you have it.

The Winklevoss twins launched the World's First Regulated Stablecoin today

Winklevoss twins just announced a stablecoin backed by USD - Gemini Dollar. The Gemini dollar, which will be pegged to the U.S. dollar at 1:1, is set to become the world’s first regulated stablecoin and seeks to allow users to send and receive U.S. dollars on the ethereum network, using ERC20 tokens.
Also, the Ethereum-based token is:
Since, Tether wasn't doing much to help legitimize the crypto asset class, this is going to be one major step towards Crypto adoption. One step at a time indeed.

The Winklevoss Doctrine

Our cryptocurrency and blockchain writer at MIT Technology Review, Mike Orcutt, wrote about a controversial new ad campaign for Gemini. Below is the excerpt from today's Chain Letter, our free newsletter written by Mike. Let us know what you think!
Crypto Twitter has been in a tizzy of late over a new ad campaign that Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss have unveiled touting Gemini, their popular cryptocurrency exchange. The reason the ads—which have graced New York City taxis, phone booths, subway cars, and a full page in the New York Times—are controversial is that they celebrate regulation. They call Gemini “the regulated cryptocurrency exchange,” and say things like “Crypto Needs Rules,” “Money Has a Future,” and “Crypto Without Chaos.”
Critics haven’t taken kindly towards this perceived cozying up to financial regulators, many of whom are perceived as being unfriendly to cryptocurrency innovation. The approach is also seen as running counter to the ethos of crypto, which celebrates mathematical rules instead of those created by bureaucrats. But why was anyone surprised? The Winklevoss twins have been trumpeting this message from the get-go. The ads just imply they still think it’s working.
Upon announcing the launch of Gemini in 2014, Cameron Winklevoss called it a “next-generation” exchange. “What do we mean by ‘next-generation’? We mean a fully-regulated, fully-compliant, New York-based Bitcoin exchange for both individuals and institutions alike.” The following year, when Gemini got approved for a BitLicense, the New York requirement that many crypto enthusiasts see as governmental overreach, the twins told Fortune that their approach was to “ask permission rather than ask forgiveness.” Last year, they set out to create a self-regulatory organization aimed at taming the Wild West-style crypto exchange scene, and launched a “regulated stablecoin” with the official blessing of the New York Department of Financial Services.
The Winklevosses long ago chose to work with the old guard instead of circumventing it, and to make Gemini’s brand inherently (and sometimes loudly) pro-regulation. Political ideology aside, the strategy seems to make particularly good sense in 2019. Regulators are zeroing in, and have already exposed the exchange scene as plagued by poor customer protection practices and lacking in tools to police fraud. This has likely contributed to a negative perception that has hindered mainstream adoption. Cryptocurrency users and potential users are looking for platforms that appear trustworthy, and many still trust traditional institutions. That creates a niche that Gemini is apparently quite happy to fill. So, sure, we can all question whether the expensive ad campaign was worthwhile. But get used to the Winklevoss doctrine.

Why the NYDFS regulations will be the next catalyst to bring us to the moon.

There has been a lot of speculation regarding this current rise in price, and what will happen next. We -should- see a slow rise in price for the next few weeks, until we have some news that sends things parabolic.
Lawsky will have regulations out by the end of the second quarter (as stated here multiple times): http://www.dfs.ny.gov/about/po_vc_03112014.htm
A lot of people on here don't understand how much of this works...
Yes, there will be your exchanges like Buttercoin, Circle and others that pop up for regular day to day users once regulations are released. These have already started to launch and accept limited users and don't necessarily have to wait for the NYDFS regulations before starting up. Lawsky has clearly stated that these types of "exchanges" can apply for their bitlicense, even before there is an actual application (all at the above link).
BUT... there are also an entirely different side to the "exchange" argument. In the traditional finance world (and soon to be in Bitcoin world), there are other exchanges that work behind the scenes as liquidity providers, or exchanges that exchanges/hft/wall street will connect into. An example of this is: https://atlasats.com/
What is an ATS? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alternative_trading_system
These will not go into operation until NYDFS has CLEARLY laid out the regulations in this area. Bitcoin is a new technology which clearly creates controversy, the last thing a company would want to do is put their business at risk by running full steam ahead into an unregulated space.
Many big banks and other exchanges will connect into ATS (and similar) exchanges, and we can already see that there are many instances of banks hiring and implementing Bitcoin:

https://capitalone.taleo.net/careersection/usx/jobdetail.ftl?job=669299&lang=en
Putting all of these pieces together, I think it is pretty clear what the next steps for BTC are. Couple all of this with the Winklevoss and SecondMarkey ETFs coming online, and I think we are going to see a really interesting summer: http://www.businessinsider.com/secondmarket-public-bitcoin-etf-2014-3

BTC remains confined to an extremely narrow range of 6'000-6'800. The news flows remain light, but even nones that can typically have a meaningful impact on markets, such as exchange hacks, is unable to shift the tides. Market participants remain on the side lines. In Japan, the country’s biggest Bitcoin exchange BitFlyer has temporarily halted accepting new clients due to FSA warnings of lacks in AML procedures.

Daily Performances
General Comment: More sideways movement with very little market participation despite quite an active news tape of late. We still look for external catalysts for cues, and a break out of the 6,000-6,800 BTC range looks imminent.

Technical Analysis - BTC
BTCUSD has broken the triangle on the downside on heavy volume and has been consolidating over the last days. We expect it to continue downwards following the trend until at least $5,000-$5,500 in the coming weeks. A movement above 7,300 for BTCUSD would invalidate this expectation.

General Comment: Some news in Japan that hasn't hit the English sites yet. The FSA (Japan's financial authorities) issued "business improvement orders" to more than 5 Japanese crypto exchanges for lack of AML procedures and internal control, resources, etc. Bitfyler, QUOINE, BitBank, Bitpoint, BTCBox, TechBurea (second time) and GMO Coin (second time). Basically the entire street. No real impact on the market but we know FSA is now totally focused on AML.

Good News vs Bad News: Why BTC prices are not skyrocketing (currently).

Hi Reddit. Long time lurker, first time poster.
... tl;dr: Bitcoin prices will not increase until the user base increases and/or the demand for BTC increases. Merchants accepting BTC does not satisfy either of these requirements. ...
Over the past week or so I have seen a few posts here in Bitcoin where the poster is frustrated that BTC prices seem to be falling in the midst of a mountain of positive Bitcoin press (Andreesen's op-ed, Overstock accepts BTC, etc). In addition to these types of posts, it seems every day there are posts here on the subreddit that "the coffee shop, dentist, shoe shiner, paper boy down the street now accepts BTC!" While these are all positive news stories, in the market of economics these stories have ZERO impact on the price of BTC.
At it's current saturation, the price of BTC is going to be simply controlled by principles of supply and demand. Bitcoin is no longer a geek-only product. It has matured beyond the influence of small time pump and dump marketers. While the market still is extremely volatile and subject to significant swings, ultimately it won't be a positive story that sends BTC prices rising. I believe, and as Economics 101 reinforces, the price will increase as demand for the coin increases.
When I look at the BTC market and attempt to forecast its future performance, it's important to identify stories or events which will trigger an increase in demand of BTC. And we must also keep an eye on items which can produce the opposite - a massive sell off.
So, regarding the price of BTC we need to define what is GOOD news and what is BAD news.
GOOD news = Increase Demand: More Users, More Security, More Adoption, Easy In / Easy Out
BAD news = Decrease Demand: Poor Government Regulation, Security Risks in the Protocol, Security Risks in Wallets, Increased Confusion in the Market, Complex Purchase & Holding Process
When we look at news stories, we should be evaluating them from the point of "Will this make it easier or more difficult for people get into BTC?" For the price to reach moon levels, it MUST be easy for your mom to get into the market.
Through this lens, stories about your local coffee shop or dentist accepting BTC as a payment are not significant enough to affect BTC prices. Not even stories of the scale of Overstock or Sacramento Kings, etc. Merchants accepting BTC does little to add additional users to the BTC ecosystem. If Amazon.com, Disney, and Coca Cola all announced tomorrow that they now accept BTC, this would be GREAT news. But, it still would have a minor impact on the BTC user base.
We should be looking for startups, technologies, businesses, and protocol updates that will open the doors to new users. (And if you are an entrepreneur, you should be trying to help solve this problem.)
When I look at the industry, barring any significantly poor US regulation, I see some fairly exciting GOOD news forthcoming in 2014 of this scale.
1. The launch of Circle.com. There has been a lot of opinion and fear about this company. Whether you agree with their association or not, Circle has compiled a who's who of executives from current finance powerhouses - in addition to key advisor in Bitcoin developer Mike Hearn. Although their product or service offering has been kept close to the vest, there is little doubt that Circle will be launching a consumer friendly product that should make it SIGNIFICANTLY easier for you mom and mine to buy into BTC. If Circle is able to make buying and holding BTC user friendly, we should see a huge spike in the user base.
2. The launch of the Winklevoss ETF Tomorrow the Winkelvii go before the NY regulators. I expect the twins will find out early this year if their Bitcoin ETF will be approved. If so, this will open up BTC to every investor and 401K holder in the country. Having an approved ETF will not only increase the user base, but also bring BIG DOLLARS to the marketplace. Talk about an increase in demand!!
3. Improved Security to the Bitcoin Protocol Last week Mike Hearn (Bitcoin core developer) announced some soon to be launched upgrades to the Bitcoin protocol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coj3uBrnxIg These are all great security upgrades which are important to the scaling of the protocol. If the Bitcoin userbase increases, and as the BTC market cap scales, having forward thought like this is vital to ensure the ecosystem can sustain itself during scale. These are extremely complex issues, and it's very comforting to hear that the core team are feverishly working to get things button up to support world wide adoption.
I'm sure there are other market significant companies or events which will also occur. Though, if just one of the three above come to fruition this year, I have no doubts we'll see a huge spike in BTC adoption, and thus an increase in the price.
No matter what the market prices have done over the past month, I expect GREAT things for BTC in 2014. I hope you do too.
