QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Even the intelligent investor is likely to need considerable willpower to keep from following the crowd.”
Were You Planning On Doing An ICO In China?
According to CNBC, Seven government administrations including the People's Bank of China, China Securities Regulatory Commission, China Banking Regulatory Commission and China Insurance Regulatory Commission issued a joint statement where they reiterated that ICO's are unauthorized illegal fund raising activity.
China’s central bank said initial coin offerings are illegal and asked all related fundraising activity to be halted immediately.
While I hate to take China's side on this (because I love cryptocurrencies), I have to think that they are doing this because they want to protect their citizens.
The reality of the matter is that most ICO's are complete garbage, and the uneducated populus ends up getting taken advantage of because of the perpetual hype storms.
Just to clear up the any confusion, the ban is not on cryptocurrency, the ban is on companies that raise funds using ICO's (Initial Coin Offerings).
The TL;DR is that due to how the markets react to such news you might be holding some damn heavy bags for a while, but the world isn't over.

Oh, and here's another article about it from Bloomberg.

Now, before you go and call her dumb, just remember, she probably knew about Ethereum before you did.
But wait, that's not the only photo of her...here's another one from a month later.
