Charlie Lee, the creator of the world’s fifth-biggest cryptocurrency, Litecoin, announced that he was cashing in his profits after a 9,300% rally in the past 12 months. The San Francisco-based software engineer who founded Litecoin in 2013 said he sold and donated all of his holdings over the past few days. He declined to say how many Litecoins he sold, but said it was a small amount of what is traded daily, so it did not hurt the currency.
Charlie Lee, the creator of the world’s fifth-biggest cryptocurrency, Litecoin, announced shortly after midnight that he was cashing in his profits after a torrid, 9,300% rally in the past 12 months. In a post on reddit, the San Francisco-based software engineer who founded litecoin in 2013, said that he sold and donated all of his holdings over the past few days.
“Litecoin has been very good for me financially, so I am well off enough that I no longer need to tie my financial success to Litecoin’s success. For the first time in 6+ years, I no longer own a single LTC that’s not stored in a physical Litecoin” Lee said in the post.
Lee explained that his liquidation was aimed at preventing a “conflict of interest” when the creator of what is known as “Bitcoin Silver” makes comments on twitter about the digital currency – something he tends to do with chronic zeal – that could influence its price, he said. That said, Lee declined to comment in the post on how many coins he sold or at what price, and asked readers to please “don’t ask me how many coins I sold or at what price. I can tell you that the amount of coins was a small percentage of GDAX’s daily volume and it did not crash the market.”
Litecoin, which was trading at $3.67 on December 20, 2016, and $4.40 at the start of the year, has climbed 9,300% in the past 12 month. It tumbled on Wednesday, following most digital currencies lower after a flash crash in bitcoin after Coinbase announced it would finally transact in Bitcoin Cash which led to a brief avalanche of selling as traders repositioned.
However, Lee insisted in his post that his sale wasn’t a sign that he has lost faith in the cryptocurrency: “I will still spend all my time working on litecoin,” he said. “When litecoin succeeds, I will still be rewarded in lots of different ways, just not directly via ownership of coins.”
Robert Mueller suggested to Congress that they have a potential obstruction case, which creates an opening for Congress to Impeach the President anyway. The burden may now be on the President to prove he is innocent.
Thai authorities filed a complaint accusing the couple of breaching a section of the country’s criminal code that relates to threatening the sovereignty of a state, and erosion of a state’s independence – these charges carry a death penalty!
According to a poll recorded in 2016, a stunning 67% of Republican voters thought mass immigration was a critical threat, but only 16% of GOP leaders agreed that it was a serious problem. Politicians serve their donors instead of their constituents, which has led to bad US immigration policies and open borders.
The health department has not disclosed the number of people who contracted measles post-vaccination. One doctor cited in the lawsuit argues the current Brooklyn measles cases are not “a clear and present danger to the public health” sufficient to require a mandatory vaccine order.
Instead of releasing asylum sekers, the Department of Homeland Security will have the authority to detain them indefinitely. The effect is expected to discourage new migrants because they will not be able to work and send money to their country of origin if they are imprisoned.
President Trump rejected a resolution from Congress to end US military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. Congress has the legal ability to compel the removal of US military forces, absent a formal declaration of war.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
James Corbett explains the differences between Bitcoin, blockchain, cryptocurrency, and digital currency.

Researchers from MIT want to change urban planning and local zoning laws, throwing out rules in favor of a technology-based system, using algorithms and blockchain, that assigns ‘tokens’ or points for the desired social behavior. They propose a sliding scale for housing, to make neighborhoods “vibrant,” instead of allowing people to live where they choose. [The points system is reliant on invasive data collection and can be used to modify behavior, like China’s social credit score program.]
