That's the beauty of bubbles, they tend to self-correct :)

Bubble or not, surely those who took action would have gotten some money (or lost some). Guess it's about knowing what you're getting into and not losing your pants

Any promising ICO that you know so far? I have got into Krios and Current and I'm looking for another investment.

ICO = IOU. Inevitably.

There may have been a few legitimate ICOs way at the start. But too many get-rich-quick scammers subsequently jumped on the bandwagon, out to take your cash and not much else.

I read that about half of all of last year's ICOs have already folded.

Agreed. Multiple ICO founders have disappeared....

Hi - had a cople of questions on cryptocurrency =
1. is it legal for any expat to buy and sell bitcoins in Singapore, if one is on employment pass as a tax resident ?
2. If profits are made are they taxable (income tax) ?
3. Which crypto exchange to trade from and how to connect your bank account to the trading exchange ?

Bitcoin over 33kusd today, that's some crazy jump, tripled in 3 months. I think I need to find access to that account I had 3-4 years ago. Not much left there but something I had and now at least could buy a good meal with drinks with it

"Nuts" is a euphemism for "I was wrong on ETH and BTC and I'm now thinking there may be some real-world utility to both of them after all"?

:)

There's also a certain feathered friend, conspicuously present at the start of this thread but now rather conspicuously absent, whose opinion, amended or otherwise, I'm quite keen to hear...
