"It will be a tool of new money laundering," - Anti-Money Laundering Office Secretary Pol Maj Gen Preecha Charoensahayanon

Crypto Bad, AML good

How's everyone?

The crypto market sees a surge as the wider market panics amid Tariff wars, Dow Jone plunge, RMB-USD all-time low. We're seeing Bitcoin again gaining market share of more than 60% as value floods to it.


Steem has seen a downward trend for months now, probably as investor flock to move their altcoin value to Bitcoin as part of the FOMO.


Will we see Steem hitting a new all time low? Are you still waiting for a higher discount to load up on your Steem power?

Great new widget! I've played around with them some year ago and it looks like you guys made some new ones over the years!

That North Korean thing is just overall nasty. I've never trusted exhcnages enough to put money there. Imagine if the crypto I earned ended funding some new weapon of mass destruction.

Great Overview @coingecko, good to see that you are still around on Steem. So, many users gave up because of the deep price devaluation.
Lets hope that Alt coins soon get some of the Bitcoin gains.

I feel that steem will keep falling until all the older steemians that are currently selling are done selling steem

Nice work u gat here @coingecko. With all these regulation and all that, crypto has come to stay, and there's nothing anybody can do about it. It's just a matter of time.

@stephenkendal @boosta @samswim @irebami @ackza @honusurf @jongolson @focusnow @donhiddit @oredebby @alexvan should follow up✌

@coingecko, May be and may not be because this needs Ground Analysis if SteemFest will be impacted or not. In my opinion it's not an issue but we cannot neglect this point when it's related to the Cryptocurrency. Let's see, but thank you so much for letting us know because it's an awareness aspect.

The FED developing 24/7 instant settlement is good news. Cryptocurrencies forcing traditional financial institutions to compete, win win for everyone.
