SegWit2x still possible? (part 2)

Yobit exchange will launch the SegWit2x futures trading before the date of possible (or impossible?) hardfork
14 November

The hype around the hardfork does not stop. YoBit cryptocurrency exchange launches the SegWit2x futures trading before the date of possible (or impossible?) hardfork.

Yobit will apply the same scheme as in the case of Bitcoin Gold tokens. The exchange will freeze the input and output of bitcoins from the users' accounts, and after that they will calculate the preliminary volume of the SegWit2x split-tokens. This scheme has much in common with futures trading.

On the exchange's website, a countdown appeared.

The fact that the exchange opens trades with these tokens gives reason to expect that despite the announcement of the leaders of the movement, SegWit2x will still take place.

Israel will reveal the status of cryptocurrencies in the next six months

Now in Israel people should make their decision on Bitcoin and it will be claimed soon
20 November

 

Israeli Ministry of Finance announced they will do some research on Bitcoin and cryptocurrency together with accounting firms.

This decision came from meeting initiated by Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon. At the meeting they realized Israel wasn’t prepared to accept cryptocurrency.

We are leading this with the minister and very happy to see he is all for it. The committees will begin their operations very fast. In my opinion, we will see results on the ground in up to six months.

The situation with uncertainty on Bitcoin mentioned above created a lot of trouble for businessmen and users on cryptocurrency.

For example, in June Tel Aviv district court announced that banks may reject Bitcoin ventures because of the inability to verify the KYC and AML. Also Israeli Tax Authority decided that if Bitcoin is not a legal currency, the sales of BTC will hurt adoption.

Although not everyone supports the recommendations of researchers. In Israel there is at least one high-ranking placeman who is convinced in pernicious impact of cryptocurrencies for economy and many share his view.

The Head of Israel Securities Authority (ISA) expressed his opinion that Bitcoin and ICOs should be strongly regulated. ISA instituted its own committee to assess regulations on Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
