Another Financial Crisis is Inevitable Promises the Fed Vice-Chairman - Forbes | money money money | Scoop.it

We need always be aware that the next crisis–and there will be one– will not be identical to the last one and that we need to be vigilant  in both trying to foresee it and seeking to prevent it,” Federal Reserve Board Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said last week in a speech to the National  Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was music to my ears to see that Fischer recommended a major new leg of Fed policy to concentrate on the financial stability  and health of the financial markets. For too long the central bank has focused solely on  maximizing employment and minimizing  inflation.

The Fed Should Buy BitCoins

Regardless of whether you agree with their policy, they should set aside a million dollars per month from that amount (which is so small that it couldn’t be represented in the error bars of their purchase) and use it to purchase BitCoins, on a cost-averaged basis, at whatever the exchange rate happens to be on that day.

The Feds Are Ready To Sell $25 Million of Bitcoin Seized From The Silk Road - Forbes

The Feds Are Ready To Sell $25 Million of Bitcoin Seized From The Silk Road - Forbes | money money money | Scoop.it

One of the bigger wallets on the Bitcoin blockchain is going to be emptied in the near future. Back in October, when the feds took down the online drug bazaar Silk Road, they seized the nearly 30,000 bitcoins in its coffers. On Thursday, the Manhattan U.S. Attorney’s office, which is prosecuting the Silk Road case, announced that a judge had signed off on a forfeiture order for those coins. That means they’re now free to get rid of the 29,655 bitcoins, worth about $25 million at Bitcoin’s current $850 value.
