Was Coinbase’s Bitcoin Cash Rollout A Designed Hit?

Authored by Tom Luongo, There’s an excellent article over on Breitbart that looks at the details of Coinbase’s surprise roll-out of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) as a trading vehicle on their in-house exchange GDAX. It details the whole sordid mess and I would recommend anyone interested in the topic to read it for what it implies. […]

Is This Why Charlie Lee Sold His Litecoin?

SEC Suspends Trading In Crypto Company Which Soared To $11 Billion Amid Bitcoin Mania

Following last night's chaotic appearance of LongFin CEO on CNBC's FastMoney, it appears The SEC has finally had enough of the unusually explosive price gains of previously tranquil publicly-traded companies adding the word 'blockchain' to their names (or mission statements).

Complaint Alleges SEC Watchdog Retaliated Against Whistleblowers

Who blows the whistle on the whistleblowers? Nobody – if they can help it. In yet another example of big-government hypocrisy allegedly committed by an office meant to hold other government employees accountable, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the watchdog for the Securities and Exchange Commission has himself become the subject of complaints […]

Insider Trading Inc: Beat The Market, Work For The SEC

It’s often said in financial markets that correlation does not mean causation. On some occasions, however, denying the causation seems so outlandish to be, frankly, preposterous. As a case in point, Institutional Investor (II) discovered a newly published academic work investigating the investment returns of SEC employees. It turns out those guys are surprisingly good. […]

Steve Cohen Loses His Top Trader

Steven Cohen’s veteran top trader is leaving, just months before the formerly-barred hedge fund manager is expected to resume managing outside investor money.

Here Are The Congressional Aides That Traded On Insider Information Over The Past Year

Up until April 2012, members of Congress and their staff were the only people in the country actually allowed to trade stocks on insider information.  That was supposed to change with the passage of the STOCK (Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge) Act which was signed into law by Barack Obama on April 4, 2012.  But, […]
