    I really need to get my "oh crap"-crypto bot working. I have tickers open during the day but so many times I open the browser after the weekend and do a double-take at what carnage has occurred, which I could easily have bailed out of!

    Throwing the baby out with the bath water.

    So because I can rob a bank, we should regulate banks out of existence?

    Another bold prediction! Be assured it’s not without some hours of study. So far 50/50 with both previous attempts at price and date predictions but 100% with both price predictions. Can this be the 3rd?

    On the above daily chart price action has printed a new all time high. A close above the orange line is now needed to confirm support on the previous all time high.

    This trade is confirmed with a close of $59k or above by October 25th and voided if below. Why is it important? A close here will print the first full bodied weekly candle above the previous all time high. That is incredibly bullish . See weekly chart below.

    A buy from $58.5k is amazing if you can get it, however the current level of $60.1k is very strong support.

    1st target $85k by November 20th (purple circle)

    Good luck!"

    What I wanna know is if scooterscot bough his mega yacht or drove his lambo to the jacuzzi moonbar.

    I put a little in crypto this year at the worst possible time, wish I did it back in 2017 when this post was started, back when you could still get BTC around £600 to £1000 and ETH around £200)

    Topic:

    The Future of Money - does the UK need a Digital Pound?

    Description:

    The emergence of digital currencies has been driven by a combination of factors: frontier technologies and their use in payments innovation, increasingly global networks and communities, and a growing recognition that transition to a digital economy will require new forms of digital money.

    The Digital Pound Foundation has recently been launched as an independent, non-profit organisation to work with a variety of stakeholders and participants towards the implementation of a well-designed Digital Pound. Recognising that both public and private sector have a role to play in the new digital money landscape, the Foundation's remit will also include advocacy for an inclusive, well-regulated, secure and transparent ecosystem that encompasses both CBDC and privately-issued forms of digital money.

    In this special launch event, we will formally introduce the Foundation and some of its members, look at why Britain might need a digital pound and examine some of the key benefits and practical examples of how it could be used.

    3.00 - 3.05pm
    Welcome and Opening Remarks: Helen Disney, Director, The Realization Group and Jeremy Wilson, Chairman, Digital Pound Foundation

    3.05 - 3.15pm
    Will Lovell, Head of Future Technology, Bank of England - Does the UK need a digital pound? A perspective from the Bank of England

    3.15 - 3.40pm
    Roundtable discussion - Why does the UK need a digital currency?

    Jeremy Wilson, Chairman, Digital Pound Foundation
    Jannah Patchay, Markets Evolution and Originating Member, Digital Pound Foundation
    Will Lovell, Head of Future Technology, Bank of England

    3.40 - 4.20pm

    Philip Hammond, who served as U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer under former Prime Minister Theresa May from 2016 to 2019. He's joining U.K.-based digital asset custody startup Copper as a senior advisor.
    Lord Hammond called the company "a true pioneer of digital asset investment technology" and implied his appointment could jumpstart the company's global ambitions: "If we can bring together the best of Britain—entrepreneurs, industry, government, and regulators—to create and enable a blockchain-based ecosystem for financial services, we will secure the UK’s global leadership in this field for decades ahead."
