21 Thoughts to “SEC Chairman Jay Clayton On Cryptocurrencies And Investing | CNBC”

  1. Hello. Yesterday I received tokens from airdrop Zilliqa What is it better to do with them? Is is better to sell now or store till the end of a year?

  2. Did all of you manage to buy Telegram tokens? Just in a few days almost all of them were sold through

  3. It is rumored that (Telegram coin will set up a record on growth among all cryptocurrencies

  4. I was disillusioned in Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum. I am afraid that we'll not see a good growth on these currencies any more 🙁 Today I bought 5000 Telegram – tokens on Today I have the only hope for them. They say they will grow by 50 times)

  5. After I have received 20 thousand free coins have from Odyssey's airdrop of, I begin to trust in a freebie :)))

  6. Today poured cash into ICO Telegram I hope at the end of this year I will drive Lambo)

  7. Cryptocurrencies that supposed to replace the dollar, euro and yen are not a security, he clearly said that. XRP is a bridge currency to help settling international payment, its purpose is to be the global liquidity pair for multiple currencies around the world that is not tied to a single economy. Today the most liquid bridge currency is USD, and XRP is here to replace that. Owning XRP also doesn't give you any ownership to Ripple the company. I believe its pretty clear that XRP is a utility token and not a security.

  8. The key, tky, is verification for securities on the blockchain… Just partnered with China's government for verifying assets and welfare verification. Might be a big contender in the security verification space for crypto.

  9. Today I learned that ICO Telegram is the greatest ICO of the year 2018

  10. Jay built a 19 trillion dollar market. What would we do without you Jay! You keep up the good work and keep us safe.

  11. The lawyer is "always concerned"? Go figure

  12. Make sure only accredited rich people can participate Jay. "We've been doing this a long time". Yes we know.

  13. Jay doesn't know what a Utility Token is…..what a sharp fella.

  14. There is a big difference between currencies and securties(tokens) invest wisely!

  15. Sure. We like to know that our personal information like social security number, credit card numbers, etc. were compremised when that happened, not 6 months later.

  16. To some degree things do need to be governed and regulated in a civil world….. proactive regulation is good I suppose….

  17. The chairman's responses sounded well-reasoned. Sounds like ICOs are going to be treated like securities. (Bad news for some of the more dubious ICOs.) He understands as useful the notion of a distributed ledger backed by good cryptography. (The "blockchain" behind Bitcoin is one instance of such a ledger, if not especially good.) He is wary of classifying the so-called "cryptocurrencies" (which makes sense, given the variants) and explicitly refused to comment on specific instances. (This makes sense, as the current crop are kind of a nothing – neither an actual currency, or any form of security).

    Waiting for the empty-headed crypto-bros to pile in. 🙂

  18. These laws need to change… Securities = We don't want the average joe to make money… Plz let this decentralization go wild! Bitcoin was made to free us, that is why it was open source.
