Senator he probably just hasn't seen it To this point because it happened late Last night and you know he's on the East Coast so you know 9 31 PM my time that Would have been 10 31 PM uh you know his Time And uh and again it's you know it's been You know a little over six hours since That was tweeted out so this is a newer Story that's kind of breaking here but Uh it would be really cool if he's got The time I bet I bet that he'd be Willing to do this because he jumps all Over stuff he's just got a fire at his Belt he's got the he's got the the drive I wouldn't be surprised if he does it if There's not something where he's already Booked Um and if so it'll be interesting to see What's covered there Um and then Attorney John Deaton also Shared this there's this tweet from uh Whale chart on Twitter Who wrote Breaking Crypto exchange crypto com is under says Crypto.com of course is under Investigation by U.S and government Agencies and may collapse or stop Operating in the United States Ah man things just keep getting worse And worse and worse so again like I said At the end of the video yeah there's the Issue with coinbase and you know the SEC Is suing them it's it's a

99.999999999 repeating percent chance That uh that they don't get their asses Sued and they should not have uh Delisted xrp but that's a different Story a little bitter about that but It's okay but anyway Attorney John Deaton retweeted that and he said if you Believe coinbase was the only exchange To receive a Wells notice You are likely mistaken ain't that the Damn truth there's been a lot of bad News regarding exchanges lately and in Fact Um you may have heard of this this story Is actually a couple days old I um I Actually haven't had an opportunity to Mention this on my channel yet although On Twitter I actually tweeted about this Probably about an hour after the news Broke and I actually got the scoop not From crypto Media or from social media I Got it from an email but bittrex the in The United States shutting down because Of the damn government And so I got an email and so these days When I get an email from any exchange I I open all of them I didn't used to do That but with the the state of things Now because you know they're mostly spam And you know users But now I just open them all because I Want to see if there's you know Horrendous news and in this case yeah There was horrendous news bitrix is

Leaving it's a shame you know I've been Using them um well I haven't used them In over half a decade but so I kind of Should have worded that differently but I I signed up to use them and I did use Them in late 2017 and early 2018. uh no Complaints whatsoever I was actually Really happy the layout was fine of Their exchange Um I just happened to not have used them Since there are a lot of different Cryptocurrency exchanges and then we all Kind of just end up living mostly on one Or two exchanges and then you go to some You know less commonly used ones if There's a particular coin that might Only be available there or something Like that but uh but no I thought they Were good and they were also A uh an on-demand liquidity partner with Ripple by the way bittrex was Um I don't know what the current status Of their relationship is given what's Happened with the SEC and everything and You know the shutdown of on-demand Liquidity in all corridors touching the United States uh but that was the thing Well bittrex is shutting down in the United States here's the headline from The daily huddle uh crypto Exchange Bittrex in the process of winding down U.S operations amid Regulatory and Economic uncertainty Seattle-based crypto exchange bittrex

Will soon stop serving U.S customers as Federal Regulators clamp down on the Digital asset industry bittrex Co-founder Richie Lai says the company Has made the decision to shut its doors In the U.S as the crypto exchange Believes it is no longer feasible to Continue operating in the country given The current regulatory conditions quote Today is a Bittersweet day this month we Turned nine years old and while I am Excited and proud that we've come this Far I am also very sad today bittrex is Beginning the process of winding down Its U.S operations end quote Lai highlights that the lack of a Regulatory framework in the country has Made it difficult for the crypto Exchange to remain competitive he said Quote When the three of us built bittrex it Was about technology Nine years later the crypto ecosystem is Very different regulatory requirements Are often unclear and enforced without Appropriate discussion or input Resulting in an uneven competitive Landscape end quote So it's just another unfortunate end so You know we'll see what happens with Crypto.com here bittrex is leaving The United States they're shutting down Here uh who knows what the hell is going To happen with coinbase what an s-word

Show man Yay United States what that I mean it's Just from a regulatory perspective what A freaking joke It's talk about just Squandering an incredible opportunity From an economic perspective for the United States it's just being absolutely Squandered by this Administration Not that the previous one was doing much Better but but this one's doing much Worse that's for sure there's a Coordinated active effort against crypto Holy freaking hell I just I would not have guessed this Half a decade ago if you'd ask me would There be more or less regulatory Clarity If you asked me that in 2017 say you Know a little over five years from now It would be more or less regulatory Clarity I understood more clarity that Would have been the guess that I would Have put out there into the world and I Would have been wrong Son of a I'm not a financial Advisor you should not buy or sell Anything because of anything I say right That would be a very very very bad idea Until next time to the Moon family sedan
