SEC decision on Winklevoss ETF is today!

The SEC is going to make their decision to approve or deny the Winklevoss ETF (exchange-traded fund) today.

Place your bets! Do you think they will approve, or deny?


Winklevoss’s own the Bitcoin exchange called Gemini, NASDAQ: COIN.

Good luck to them, and to bitcoin for this monumental event!

EDIT: The SEC did not approve the ETF 🙁

Bitcoin price soars to $500 today!

Are you also sitting on the edge of your seat watching the Bitcoinity live chart going haywire all day, everyday for the last few days? The bitcoin price soaring from $237 a month ago up to $500 today’s maximum price (so far).

rise bitcoin RISE!

rise bitcoin RISE!

Now, lets speculate why this is happening? What are your opinions? (please comment your thoughts)

Is it:

USAA integrating bitcoin balance for their banking customers??
Blockchain tech featured in The Economist magazine (or blockchain technology in general)
The Winklevoss’s launch of trading platform Gemini.com
Worldpay quietly supporting Bitcoin and Blockchain
Something happening in CHINA?

Maybe just a mix of them all, or some secret undercover shit that is way over our heads? Other ideas?

Would love to hear your thoughts!

Coinbase fees too high?

Bitstamp with 0.5% fee and then there’s Coinbase with 1% fee, I was wondering, why is this so high? and is this fair? I love bitcoin but really for an exchange to be taking 1% on all sells and all buys is just ridiculous imo. I love you Coinbase, love you bitcoin, but this really should be updated to a more fair amount.

The Winklevoss brothers are launching Gemini but it seems they have not yet released their fee amount. I emailed them already:

Hi, i’d like to know what kind of fees will Gemini have per transaction?
Coinbase has 1%, Bitstamp 0.5%
Where will you guys be at? I’m very interested, i’d love to see something lower than 1%, that is insane imo
Thank you

I am not the only one who thinks this way, here’s a thread on Reddit about it ->

I love you coinbase, and love your easy to use platform, but really, why the high fees?

UPDATE (Oct 18, 2015): Gemini replied that they have only 0.25% transaction fees! 🙂
