CHINA

China has been at the forefront of most govenment-involved crypto regulation. Their bans on ICOs, shutting down exchanges, and limiting bitcoin miners are all actinos the Chinese government have taken against Crypto. Reports from Chinese news agencies have even mentioned that some ICOs have shifted their registration to overseas, but “Althought they [ICOs] are officially established and issuing tokens overseas, their product development, and key personnels and investors are all based inside mainland China.”

How the World is Reacting to Cryptocurrency | Bad Crypto Podcast ep. 25

How the World is Reacting to Cryptocurrency | Bad Crypto Podcast ep. 25

Do you have to pay taxes on your cryptocurrency gains? How are world governments responding to bitcoin and crypto, especially with big news surrounding China’s questionable crypto-future. And we’re pleased to entertain you with a new crypto rap song submitted by one of our listeners.

The blockchain blockheads are in the house and we’re about to get jiggy with it Here comes episode #25 of The Bad Crypto Podcast. Word to your momma.

QUESTIONS THAT WE ANSWER!

“Hi guys, thanks for putting on this great show! I’d like to hear your thoughts on how crypto currencies relate to taxes. If one of the primary features of blockchain technology is that transactions are performed anonymously, isn’t it especially easy to avoid paying capital gains and other applicable taxes? How likely do you think it is that, as cryptos become mainstream, this will cause governments to restrict the use of crypto currencies to the point of being obsolete and therefore of no value? Or do you think that blockchain tech will move forward with or without government cooperation and so they might as well get on board?” – Mike S.

Great question… we answer this question on this episode!  Please shoot us your BADCOIN ID and you got some BADCOIN coming your way!

“Hi Joel and Travis,

I’m from Essex near London in England. I’m relatively new to Crypto and I’m enjoying the ride so far, learning new things and your podcast is definitely helping with that. I’ve block 😉 listened to all of your podcasts at work over the last two days and I think you do yourself a disservice by calling yourself The Bad Crypto Podcast and your status should be elevated………Maybe: The OK Crypto Podcast or The Half Decent Crypto Podcast 🙂

I have a suggestion/question: On exchanges sometimes you’re left with dust from certain tokens/currencies which can’t be used, cumulatively across all the accounts and exchanges it must add up to a fair chunk of change….Could you perhaps use any contacts or influence you have to get exchanges to add a “Dusting” facility to each wallet so we could collect all of the bits together and maybe that can be sent to Water Is Life? Failing that maybe a donate button or a 1 Satoshi cut of each transaction fee?” – Ian from Essex, UK.

Great question, Ian.  We answer it this episode… tune in and then send us your BADCOIN ID and you got some worthless tokens coming your way!

FEATURED WORLD PREMIERE!

So, we got an email from Jason Vandal, who is a rapper.  He sent us this message, and we are sharing it with you.  To the moon in your brand new Lambo, everyone.

I’ll admit it.. I’m infatuated with the Blockchain. In late 2015 I became passively interested in Cryptocurrency after hearing about it on The Keiser Report, so I went ahead and bought a book.

I sat on the fence for almost a year until I had an opportunity to get myself some Bitcoin, which launched me into a whole new world of possibilities and the infatuation began. I dabbled in Trading, investing in ICO’s and all the while learning more about the Blockchain and the technology manifesting in this burgeoning ecosystem. I was instantly hooked.

Early July 2017 I woke up. It was a moment of clarity. My writers block was gone and a flood of connecting ideas appeared in a wave of some much needed inspiration. This inspiration led to the creation of Rap Crypto, a Vandal’s interpretation of his experience in crypto, in the form of a Hip Hop song. Bridging the Gap between his audience and the tech-heavy Crypto-sphere is only the beginning and Rap Crypto is just a teaser to what is to come with the Hip Hop The Blockchain initiative.

Pretty fun jam. If you make a cryptocurrency related song that is as epic as this one, we will play it on the show, as well.

Nicely done, VNDL.
