3 Sep 2021 1 minute read 5 comments SeventyFourSeventyFive

I continue to be caught up in the case the SEC is making against Ripple. I am not even against the argument they are making, I think there is some merit to it. This latest development is pretty humorous, though. It shows how unprepared the SEC is whe...

This is my first, and maybe my only article, on buying a specific crypto.  I am delving into it because of the unique circumstances around Ripple right now.  I wrote some time back about the SEC accusing Ripple of selling XRP as securities and the la...

SEC Has Asked To Regulate The “Wild West” Of Crypto

5 Aug 2021 3 minute read 4 comments SeventyFourSeventyFive

To write this article, I have to admit to being a pretty big nerd. So I will just get it out in the open.  I read a lot about the old west. I have probably read 50 books on the city of Tombstone and the shootout at the OK Corral alone. (And to be hon...
