    The Former SEC Chairman literally sued Ripple on the last day he was in office, then went on to work at a firm that only trades Bitcoin and Ethereum, it’s two competitors. Retweet this if you think that sounds like a conflict of interest, and should be investigated!

  • From PeterSchiff:

    Western Union charges $4.95 to transfer up to $500 to #ElSalvador. To avoid this fee will people pay a fee to buy #Bitcoin instead, then pay an additional fee to transfer it to El Salvador, which once received will likely be sold, potentially at a loss? Bitcoin doesn’t fix this.

  • From cryptomanran:
