Anyone been keeping an eye on Wanchain? Seems to be a lot of hype for it right now. Nobody seems to know what exchanges it will hit but speculation suggest most likely Binance but possibly also Kucoin.

Unfortunately Binance is not accepting new people.

that's quite the blanket statement. gambling? sure. literally nothing? well, a bunch of the vapor ware that is just an idea and a white paper sure. there are also legitimate projects.

and id love to hear more about why gov't backed currency is not literally nothing, if you are talking about all cryptocurrency including bitcoin. explain to me how the bolivar or zimbawe's currency is literally something.

can you also explain to me why we should discount a censorship resistant immutable ledger? or the obvious next level in supply chain management from source to consumer? anti-counterfeiting at a level we could never have done before?

its easy to be a contrarian when all you need to do is put in some one-liners.

Michael, why do you take a stab at telling me how the Zimbawean currency or the Bolivar are "literally something?" Luls

A currency is representative of full faith and credit in that nation. The currency valuation is a real time check on that full faith and credit. Which is why the very established, highly regulated, multi-trillion dollar global currency markets ascribe such a low valuation to Zimbabwe or Venezuela’s currencies.

Maybe if those currencies were instead traded on a Magic The Gathering online exchange, they could see much, much higher valuations than are warranted.

If NEO can reach these highs, I am really trying to figure out why EOS is still so cheap. Am I missing something? Especially since it has worldwide appeal vs just China.

Now might be the time I dip in to load up on some.

From what I've read over the last week seems like a pretty solid trend for this crash/dip too happen this time of year... If you look at the last 4 years a similar dip has happened in relation to Chinese new year and Asian markets selling off.

Also take into the consideration of nubnubs like myself in the market, some of which are probably panic selling because its there first big dip, along with all the China and Korea talks of bans can make a perfect storm for the dip we are in.
