Robinhood’s smartphone app helped the company build its brand as a millennial-friendly brokerage house, allowing customers to invest in publicly traded companies listed on US stock exchanges without paying a commission. Moderator Jen Weiczner of Fortune began by asking Tenev to respond to a quote made on Monday by its well-established rival Charles Schwab, which currently has 11.1 million brokerage accounts compared to Robinhood’s four million. “No one does trading for free. It’s just a matter of how you’re paying for it. If someone offers trading at a zero-dollar commission price, then they’re simply making it up in other manners. To say you’re doing a trade for free is just disingenuous. If you’re buying one share of Apple, maybe you don’t care that your execution quality isn’t the highest it could be. If you’re buying a thousand shares of Apple, you care a lot.” – Walt Bettinger, CEO Charles Schwab Although Schwab recently lowered its trading commission fee from $8.95 to $4.95, it differs significantly from Robinhood, which charges no fees and bills itself as a free trading platform. In response to the quote, Tenev pointed out that if you’re buying a thousand shares of Apple or making a $200,000 transaction, you’re probably among the one percent of all traders. That’s not Robinhood’s clientele. The company serves average traders who may be making their first trades – and those are the traders Robinhood is keen on attracting and why the company has been instrumental in shifting the fintech landscape. “The mass market can’t afford to be making $200,000 transactions,” Tenev said. He noted that brokerage houses have been ripping off traders by charging high and excessive fees, and that a business model based on commission-free trades is sustainable. “We’re still making money. We’re just making a lot less of it than our competitors per customer,” he said. “And we’re making up for that with lots more customers, much more efficiency. We don’t operate fax machines. We don’t use a lot of paper. Whereas some of these legacy brokerages are running on paper and fax machines, and have legacy mainframes that have been operating their business for many, many decades.” He added, “People are going to be forced to lower their prices in order to survive.” In order to drive efficiency, legacy players will have to abandon the cash-cow model and attract top tech talent that can help them retool and compete. It won’t be easy, considering the number of years the establishment and discount brokerage houses have been operating less streamlined models. They’re not tech or engineering companies, and the slack has made them inefficient, Tenev argues, nearly guaranteeing that a successful pivot to cost-saving protocols will be extremely difficult to achieve. As for digital assets, Schwab began offering clients with futures accounts the option of trading Cboe Bitcoin futures while Robinhood has gone all in on crypto trading. The company launched Robinhood Crypto in February allowing customers in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin to trade Bitcoin and Ethereum directly on its app. A pioneer in the industry, the company has effectively dismantled the wall between cryptos and stocks by giving traders access to both on a single platform. Tenev believes cryptocurrencies have “significant staying power” and sees the same type of price gouging by the big cryptocurrency exchanges. He’s hoping Robinhood’s strategy of eliminating fees will level the playing field and allow new traders to enter the space and grow the crypto ecosystem. Valued at $5.6 billion, Robinhood is now one of the largest options brokers in the world. The company is prepared to expand into other areas, going head-to-head with the old guard as it remains nimble, lean and ready to deploy the newest technologies to drive growth and its growing legion of customers.

The past few weeks saw significant distress amongst various cryptocurrencies, particularly Ethereum and Ripple (XRP), over whether or not they are to be considered securities and what that means for the future of trading digital assets. Ethereum, in particular, was under scrutiny for failing to register its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) with the SEC back in 2014 and risked being considered ‘noncompliant’. Bitcoin (BTC) has never seriously been considered at risk of such regulations since it was mined from inception and acts as a replacement for sovereign currencies. Yesterday, the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) Finance Director William Hinman made his position on the matter clear at Yahoo Finance’s All Market Summit in San Francisco: Based on my understanding of the present state of ether, the Ethereum network and its decentralized structure, current offers and sales of ether are not securities transactions.” Whether or not Ripple (XRP) is considered a security or not is still unclear. Continuing in his speech, Hinman went on to state that: Central to determining whether a security is being sold is how it is being sold and the reasonable expectations of purchasers,” A large part of the law hinges on the whether or not investors are looking for a return on their asset. Ripple is currently subject to a class action lawsuit claiming it is a security, the outcome of which remains to be seen. Market Rebound Since the announcement the price of almost every cryptocurrency on the market has enjoyed positive upward movement, with some coins, including Ethereum, seeing as much as 10% gains. Ethereum has corrected slightly back to around $500 now but was as high as $518 earlier today. Bitcoin (BTC) is up 5.89 percent trading at $6,623 at time of writing, down only slightly from $6,680 earlier this morning. Trading volumes have increased to $5.1 billion, a significant improvement from this weeks low of $4.8 billion. The bullish trend follows comments yesterday by crypto’s own Dr Doom, Nouriel Roubini, who took shots at the crypto market while voicing his opinions on Twitter about venture capitalist and Bitcoin enthusiast Tim Draper:

The community was taken aback by the abrupt decision of Coinbase to add ETC to its platform, given that it is the 18th most valuable cryptocurrency in the global market and there are more than a dozen cryptocurrencies with larger market valuation and volume. Dan Romero, the vice president and general manager at Coinbase, acknowledged that the cryptocurrency community generally responded to the ETC integration with astonishment. He emphasized that Coinbase’s decision to integrate ETC was mainly fueled by its compliance with local regulations. Seeing some head-scratching on this one [ETC integration]. We’ll continue adding as many assets as we can in a secure and compliant manner. Building a brand that’s most trusted and gives customers direct access to cryptocurrency with USD, EUR, GBP requires being compliant with local laws,” Romero explained. Why Ethereum Classic? ETC was created after a group of developers hard forked the Ethereum blockchain network, after the Ethereum community came to a consensus to fork the chain to recover the losses of investors in the Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO), one of the first major decentralized applications on the Ethereum protocol Eventually, the development of ETC was split between several development groups and currently, IOHK, the founding team of $4.4 billion blockchain network Cardano created by Ethereum co-founder Charles Hoskinson, remains as one of the few development teams that oversee the development of Ethereum Classic. ETC, like Ethereum, is sustained by developers in the open-source development community and the success of ETC does not benefit a single organization. Cryptocurrencies such as Ripple and EOS are overseen by independent and private companies including Ripple Labs and Block.one. The transparent launch of ETC and the decentralized nature of its development community are what led Coinbase to ultimately integrate ETC ahead of other cryptocurrencies such as XRP and EOS. Brian Armstrong, the CEO at Coinbase, said that the integration of ETC is only the beginning of new cryptocurrency integration and in the mid-term, the company will continue to add more cryptocurrencies and tokens. “Excited to continue adding new assets to Coinbase,” Armstrong said. The official announcement of the Coinbase team emphasized that the platform will support the ERC20 standard and bitcoin forks first, before moving to other cryptocurrencies. “We have previously announced our intention to support the ERC20 technical standard and Bitcoin forks. We will announce the intention to add specific assets within those categories prior to final engineering integration. This is consistent with our public process for adding new assets,” the Coinbase team said. What Will Come Next? Tokens will be next on the line, as the Coinbase team emphasized on its latest statement. 0x, which has a Coinbase co-founder as an advisor, will likely be integrated next. But, it is also possible that coinbase integrate the entire ERC20 token standard as a whole, implementing all tokens listed on Paradex, the decentralized cryptocurrency exchange based on the 0x protocol.

John McAfee, who predicted Bitcoin price to reach $1,000,000 before 2021, believes that the bull market will be delayed by no more than 30 days. “Do not panic about the drop in Bitcoin’s price,” commented John McAfee on June the 10th. “It is an overreaction to the news that Bitstamp, Coinbase, itBit and Kraken are being investigated for price manipulation. This will delay the bull market by no more than 30 days. Don’t buy into the fear. Buy the coins.” At the moment of writing this article, Bitcoin is being traded around $6,790 dollars and it is operating 7% down compared to 24 hours ago. At the same time, the crypto market has a market capitalization under $300 billion dollars. Bitcoin’s dominance is now up to 39%, the highest point since May.

While crowd psychology is difficult to predict, the government of Poland has a simple appeal for those jumping on the hysteric bandwagon- don’t panic. No Reason for Panic According to a report on Finance Magnates, both mainstream and local media in Poland have propagated the likes of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in a contrary manner. This sensationalism has made citizens increasingly believe that possessing or trading cryptocurrencies is strictly prohibited in the nation. While the Polish Financial Supervision ‎Authority (KNF) is running a 30-day campaign educating citizens about the risks of crypto currencies, it made clear that there is no legal regulation preventing citizens from doing so. According to the KNF’s website: The takeaway from the government’s seemingly polarizing stance may confuse some but is in line with how governments around the world approach the nascent sector. Governments’ are not wholly to blame for their crackdown as well; the rise of ICOs and exit-scams have alarmed authorities worldwide, and citizens still expect their rights to be protected. Money Laundering and Terrorism the Main Concerns The report noted that Poland’s localized attempts to regulate cryptocurrencies pertain to checking potential financing of terrorism, and anti-money laundering legislation. The details of the new Polish act, which comes into effect on July 13, 2018, specify several entities that are subject to the regulation, and are referred to as “obligated institutions.” While the list does not explicitly mention crypto currencies, it considers exchanges and any other service that processes the purchasing and selling of digital assets as obligated institutions

Join- https://t.me/btctradingclub For more Bitcoin Crypto Currency news Latest Update Crypto Currency Training Auto Trading Crypto BOT & Crypto Trading Signals join above given Telegram channel The SEC has revealed that it views cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin as “replacements for sovereign currencies,” and has definitively deemed them as falling outside the umbrella of securities’ regulation. ICOs, on the other hand, are securities — and there’s no room for argument. ‘THESE ARE REPLACEMENTS FOR SOVEREIGN CURRENCIES’ US Securities and Exchange Commission chairman Jay Clayton spoke with CNBC’s Bob Pisani earlier this week about which cryptocurrencies are and are not securities. Though he didn’t answer questions on a cryptocurrency-by-cryptocurrency basis, he did state definitively that Bitcoin is not a security. Rather, he claimed it’s a replacement for fiat currencies. Clayton explained: Cryptocurrencies — these are replacements for sovereign currencies. [They] replace the dollar, the yen, the euro, with bitcoin. That type of currency is not a security. Interestingly, Clayton didn’t sound particularly bearish on the idea of cryptocurrencies replacing fiat currencies. Instead, he appeared rather impartial to the idea. IF IT’S A SECURITY, WE’RE REGULATING IT’ The SEC chairman was, however, crystal clear in regards to his agency’s stance on initial coin offerings (ICOs) — they are securities. End of story. Clayton stated: A token, a digital asset, where I give you my money and you go off and make a venture […] and in return for me giving you my money you say, “You know what? I’m gonna give you a return or you can get a return in the secondary market by selling your token to somebody” — that is a security and we regulate that. We regulate the offering of that security and we regulate the trading of that security. That’s our job and we’ve been doing it for a long time. When probed further by CNBC’s Pisani on whether or not the SEC would make a clear statement about ICOs, Clayton responded: Bob, I hope I just did. If it’s a security, we’re regulating it […] If you have an ICO or a stock and you want to sell it in a private placement, follow the private placement rules. The SEC chairman did not offer any insight into whether or not Ethereum and Ripple — the second and third largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, respectively — will be deemed securities.
  7. Join- https://t.me/btctradingclub For more Bitcoin Crypto Currency news Latest Update Crypto Currency Training Auto Trading Crypto BOT & Crypto Trading Signals join above given Telegram channel Despite recent price woes, experts are predicting that Bitcoin will double in value by the end of the year. Bitcoin Price Stagnant, but Not for Long As of late, uncertainties with regard to regulations and the seizure of Bitcoin in legal cases like Mt. Gox, which led to the unloading of coins on exchanges, has caused some stagnation. This means that, according to experts, the short-term crypto forecast is expected to remain relatively static — though not for long. “I believe Bitcoin’s price will continue to fluctuate between $6,500 and $8,500 in the coming weeks,” David Hanson, a blockchain expert and CEO of the gaming platform Ultra, told the Independent. He continued: “In the medium-to-long term, Bitcoin’s value should go up, as big institutions enter the crypto space in a bid to gain first-mover advantage, further legitimising the market.” This idea that institutional investors will provide a boost to the digital currency (and altcoins) is shared by other figures in the space, who are looking at the cryptocurrency to break the $10,000 barrier again in coming months. Despite the drop from almost $20,000 in December, and the fact that the number one crypto has not gone above $10,000 since March (though it came awfully close in early-May), more people and companies alike are getting interested in the coin — and this is set to show, according to Iqbal Gandham, the U.K. managing director of eToro. “As the regulatory landscape clears up we can expect far more investors, including big ticket institutions, to make their first cryptocurrency investments,” he said. He went on to say: “For the first few months of this year, the crypto industry has been jogging along at a relatively slow pace, waiting for the opportunity to stretch into a sprint. This may just be that moment.” Bitcoin Predictions Look to 95% Gains by Year End At the beginning of the year, following the register of all time highs for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies at the end of 2017, price predictions were very positive. Tim Draper, an early backer of Tesla, Skype, and SpaceX, and one of the most high-profile Bitcoin investors, said that it could hit $250,000 by 2022. Although Draper did not disclose the method he used to calculate his forecast, a comparable number was provided by Horizon Kinetics’ Murray Stahl, who argued that the digital currency could be worth the value of all the currency in the world. He believes this is the case because fiat money can be ‘debased,’ but there will be only 21 million Bitcoins ever made. Another person with positive price predictions is Alistair Milne, the self-described ‘Bitcoin evangelist.’ Milne has stated that he believes Bitcoin will reach between $35,000 and $60,000 by the end of 2019. Following Milne’s lead, similar numbers were suggested by a panel of crypto experts put together by price comparison site Finder.com, who originally stated that Bitcoin would hit $33,000 by the end of this year. This week the panel released a revised figure, bringing the prediction to less than half the initial outlook at just $14,638 — but those are still great gains on Bitcoin’s current price of just under $7,700, according to CoinMarketCap.

The coin No.1 recovered strongly late on Tuesday, but lack of follow-through cast doubt on a sustainability of the recovery. Speaking in an interview with Bloomberg Business Week, Adena Friedman, president, and CEO of Nasdaq Inc., said that cryptocurrencies had become a financial element of the Internet and reached the highest point of the hype cycle. She believes that digital currency is a very speculative asset with no natural foundation or commercial purpose, at least at the current stage of their development. Once they become more mature. they will provide “more seamless way for commerce”.

Join- https://t.me/btctradingclub For more Bitcoin Crypto Currency news Latest Update Crypto Currency Training Auto Trading Crypto BOT & Crypto Trading Signals join above given Telegram channel With the current market outlook it does seem hard to imagine Bitcoin moving back up towards $10,000.00 again. Why $10,000.00? Well, as you should know, Bitcoin peaked at an all time high, just shy of $20,000.00, as a result of this, investors and fans alike, are driven by the notion that Bitcoin will hit $20,000.00 once again. $10,000.00 marks halfway to that target and therefore exists as a strong target point for Bitcoin. In short, if Bitcoin ever wants to meet $20,000.00 again, mathematically it needs to reach $10,000.00 first. Within the crypto-universe, it is better to view things in half-steps first, otherwise you will become bitter, twisted and lose every ounce of optimism you could ever fathom. Therefore, in the pursuit of happiness, we look to spread out our targets so to speak. Now, in April, off the back of a depressive March, we entered the month reaching new lows, with an air of pessimism that seemed to drive the markets in one direction, down. Likewise, this trend seems to be repeating itself in June. We are now five days in, yet the markets remain quite empty, with very little promise of seeing any climbs anytime soon. With this in mind, and in remaining optimistic, we want to consider June, as the new April. Track back, and on the 13th of April (which was ironically a Friday) we saw the markets surge. This kick started a bull run that drove market prices up right through into the start of May. As correction took over and as a few disastrous events occured (Mt. Gox coin dumps mainly) we saw the markets begin to retreat again. Assuming this trend will then repeat itself, by mid-June, we could see the markets take a rise up once more. If this happens, Bitcoin will be well on its way back up to $10,000.00. When Bitcoin moves up, the rest of the markets will follow, see our logic? Of course, this is just speculation and it can’t be guaranteed. At the very least though, the take-home message here is that the markets will move back up away from this negative trend. If you’ve invested, don’t panic and don’t let it put you off, what we see today is just the organic volatile nature of cryptocurrencies in the flesh. Thankfully, that organic volatile nature means one day, the markets will surge again. Please note, this is not investment advice, if you choose to invest, do so on your own terms with adequate prior research. The markets are risky and thus, investing is risky. Trade safe.
