Hi Chris - Thanks for the question.

Yes campaign is doing ok. We're confident with a good result by the time it finishes Dec 15th.

I think Bitcoin is going to continue changing everything. The currency is going to be used more and more in countries with local currency issues and the price will continue to be volatile for years to come. The Technology is already morphing and forking into different verticals/use-cases and we are going to see several flavors of blockchain.
Ultimately open standards will win as networks demand inter-operability. I think we will see more trading volumes on existing exchanges and we will bitcoin added as a trading option on non-bitcoin exchanges.

BNC is at the linchpin of where market data meets blockchain technology. We will become a very important resource for the financial services sector with our data and enterprise products.

Hello Fran
I was re-reading Antifragile by iconoclast thinker Nassim Taleb recently. He writes
"Never ask anyone for their opinion [...] Just ask them what they have -or don't have- in their portfolio"
I have come to think it's a very relevant question and you can better weight people's opinions having an idea of how many Bitcoins they hold (or do not hold.) So Instead of asking their opinion on bitcoin, I'm now asking every participants the same question:

- Do you mind to tell us which percentage of your personal net worth and/or liquid assets you hold in Bitcoins ?

Hi Fran Strajnar,
There are a rapidly growing number of companies offering market data about bitcoin. What are you doing to stay ahead of the competition while maintaining a monetization model?

Hi - That's a great question!

The % was very low - then bitcoin exploded in price so it was very high. I sold at $800-$500 and entered back in at $200 but not a massive amount as BNC came first. I seeded the company for the first 18 months. Got to look after staff before anything else. Thanks

What are your opinions regarding the Blocksize-issue? are you for BIP100(increase of up to 17%)/BIP101(8 MB and up to GBs)/BIP103(2-4-8-32MB)?
Do you hold bitcoins yourself(in the trezor,web Wallet,mobile wallet or desktop wallet)?
What do you think of alt-coins such as Litecoin, Ethereum and Dogecoin?
What do you think about bitcoins future(block halvening,openbaazar etc)?

Hi Nyeko - Thanks for the Question

The Scaling events/conferences are doing well and should result in some consensus.
My opinion on the matter is that scalability should have been factored for long ago - with a well scheduled project plan to increase blocksize as required being part of the original code.
But since Satoshi or early developers did not do this, the best thing that can happen now is that we create a robust 10 year plan for block-increase now. I don't mind how much it increases now as long as the process goes through extensive testing and is peer-reviewed before implementation.

I hold my bitcoins using AirBitz Zero-knowledge wallet.
Altcoins that don't 'do' anything will go away over time.
Ethereum is going to change the world alongside bitcoin.

Block-halving will cause the new 'floor' in bitcoin's price to be $500 minimum.
Open Baazar will be used for drugs irrespective of what anybody says. It will trigger a hilarious series of lawsuits and overarching actions by US law authorities but it won't be taken down due to it's decentralized nature. OB will create a very interesting new paradigm shift and chances are they will disrupt Amazon but not immediately.


Thanks!
