Avatar

BREAKING: Due to the new vaping bill, in less than 90 days there will be no more mail order of CBD and Delta-8 THC vape cartridges and conpanies selling online won’t be able to use USPS for shipping. As a result, the price of Delta-8 THC vape carts is now rising, as the option to get it online is restricted.

Companies that are planning to continue selling Delta-8 THC vape carts online, must find now alternative delivery methods, as very soon, the United States Postal Service (USPS) will no longer allow it.

As a result we expect to see a major change in Delta-8 THC pricing, as price of Delta-8 THC vape cartswill increase from $19.95-$29.95 today to over $39.95 in March!

Currently, we are offering Delta-8 THC vape cartridges for $12/cart.

Why Delta-8 THC vape cartridges are getting banned?

Over the last couple of weeks, congress has been going back and forth trying to iron out the framework of a 5,593-page COVID-19 relief bill, the longest bill ever written in U.S. history, and buried deep within its text is a provision that will change the vaping industry as we know it.
Unfortunately, not only nicotine products, but also CBD and Delta-8 THC vape cartridges will be affected from the bill.

The main problem with this COVID “relief” bill, aside from the strange spending points, is that it’s being used as a front to pass legislation that has nothing to do with the virus. At the top of our list is a note on page 5,136 that will ban the United States Postal Service (USPS) from shipping vaping products to adult consumers. Although it was intended to be applied specifically to the tobacco industry, thanks to non-specific and sloppy drafting, the effects will be felt well beyond the confines of nicotine products and both CBD vape carts and Delta-8 THC vape cartridges, will also be banned…

The PACT Act

Under the Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act (PACT Act, which is part of the Jenkins Act), the word “cigarette” will be redefined to included all “electronic nicotine delivery system.” But despite the word “nicotine” being used in the bill, the overall definition is so broad that lawmakers have red-flagged ALL vape liquids, including those containing CBD and standalone devices to used for vaping THC and other cannabinoids.

These changes of the bill go into effect into 120 days, at which point all orders of vaping products will need to be shipped via an alternate service, which can be extremely costly and will require the signature or a recipient who is 21 years of age or older.

Additionally, starting 90 days after the enactment of this new law, all internet and mail-order businesses will be required to file length reports every month with state, native tribes, and local governments that will include details about the identity, location, and product orders of all customers who buy vaping items within their jurisdiction.

The title of the original Congress bill containing this text was The Preventing Online Sales of E-Cigarettes to Children Act, however, it is already illegal under federal law to ship vaping and tobacco products to minors, and this new version of the mandate will apply to adults in legal markets as well.

Increased risk for COVID

Logical critics argue that this new law, hidden in the text of a COVID relief bill, may actually increase the risk of one being exposed to and developing the disease, ironically. Take an elderly woman who recently switched from cigarettes to vape products to improve her health. She lives alone in a rural area and has products mailed to her to reduce the risk of catching COVID. The new law would force this hypothetical elderly woman out of her house and into the general public to shop for vape products, which increases her chances of being exposed to, not only COVID-19, but other illnesses as well, such as the flu.

“The sponsors of this legislation repeatedly refused to consider common sense amendments that would have protected youth, while also not needlessly shutting down small businesses,” says Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association. “Thanks to their intransigence, the language included in the omnibus is so sloppily drafted that it will also ban the USPS from shipping CBD liquids intended to be vaporized, as well as devices intended for use with THC or other non-nicotine substances.”

He added: “There are still 36 million American adults smoking combustible cigarettes and over 400,000 will die from smoking-related illnesses this year alone. The American people should start questioning why their government is so intent on making it harder for adults to quit smoking.”

In that vein, illness that are often developed by smokers affect many of the same major organs as COVID-19, such as the lungs, oesophagus, and vascular system. When a smoker becomes infected with COVID-19 or any type of SARS virus, they will likely suffer more than a non-smoker.  

“Smokers often have serious heart and lung health problems already. Add COVID-19 to the mix and you are likely to get a very sick patient; they just don’t have the physiological reserves to deal with the massive inflammatory attack brought on by the coronavirus,” said Joseph E. Ebinger, MD,  a cardiologist with the Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai.

Final thoughts

There was a lot of back and forth with this bill, but the main source of disagreement was the size of the stimulus checks, but there was no doubt that this vaping law would slip under the radar. Ultimately, the bill passed as was expected. Lawmakers were banking on the fact that most people won’t look it up and read through the absurdly long bill themselves, and they were right.

Now, we have 120 days before the industry as we know it, will change for what seems to be the worstLEGAL customers will no longer be able to purchase vaping products by mail order thanks to this new bill.

As far as business goes, experts predict that large, better capitalized companies will have no problem paying the costs required to be in compliance with the new regulations, while smaller companies, the mom-and-pop shops, will be the ones to suffer and eventually be pushed out of the market altogether, so if your favorite products are coming from a smaller business, you may want to stock up before they’re forced to shutter the doors.

They thought they were helping, but the regulators actually did this…

Tether’s Offshore Deltec Bank Disclosed Huge Portion In BTC: Report

Republished by Plato

Published

Tether’s offshore Deltec bank disclosed huge reserves in BTC for the stablecoin issuer as the bank revealed but it is unclear which clients it holds BTC for so let’s find out more in today’s Tether news.

Tether’s offshore Deltec bank holds huge reserves for the stablecoin issuer and made the announcement today as Chief Investment Officer Hugo Rogers said:

 “It also includes a large position in bitcoin, which has received a lot of attention recently. We bought bitcoin for our clients at about $9,300, so that worked very well through 2020. And we expect it to work well in 2021 as the liquidity crisis continues to run hot.”

Tether is maybe Deltec’s most famous client and according to the market data provider CoinMarketCap, Tether now has a circulating supply of 24.3 billion USDT. Now, since the stablecoin issuer claims that each coin is “fully backed by our reserves” and each USDT is pegged to the dollar it means that it will have about $24.3 billion of assets in the bank. According to Tether’s website the reserves “include traditional currency and cash equivalents and from time to time could include other assets and receivables from loans that are made by Tether to third parties.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Tether’s last published update from June 1, 2018, it claims that a total of $2.54 billion in USD distributed in two bank accounts. The amount was more than it reported the market cap at the time. a letter that was produced by Tether from Deltec confirmed that Tether was a client despite using other words to discuss how much money went into the account:

 “We hereby confirm that, at the close of business on October 31, 2018, the portfolio cash value of your account with our bank was US$1,831,322,828.”

Deltec hasn’t divulged which of the clients it is holding BTC for as Tether is not the only customer of Deltec. In fact, one more company is using it as well which is the crypto derivatives exchange FTX. Others find it curious especially now since Bitfinex shares a leadership team with Tether owns a huge stake at the bank. Tether is not the subject of rumors alone but it is also the subject of the New York Attorney General’s Office Investigation as the NYAG was looking into Bitfinex after it gave Tether loans to hide the losses worth $1 billion.

LINK Revisited $18 And Could Soon Break Above $20: Analysis

Republished by Plato

Published

on

LINK revisited $18, increasing 15% and breaking many hurdles close to the $16.20 level similar to BTC and ETH. The price is testing a major barrier at the $18.00 above which could hit $20.00 as we can see more in today’s Chainlink news.

The LINK token price shows a lot of positive signs above the $16.20 level and against the US dollar with the price testing the $18.00 resistance and it is well above the 100 simple moving average. It managed to break above the key bearish trend line with the resistance at the $16.20 on the 4-hour charts of the pair that could shoot higher if it manages to clear the break above the $18.00 level.

Over the past few sessions, there was a steady increase in ETH, BTC, Chainlink, Bitcoin Cash, and other altcoins. LINK’s price broke a major hurdle near the $16.20 level to start the current upwards movement and there was also a break above the key bearish trend line with resistance at the $16.20 level on the 4-hour charts of the pair. LINK managed to gain pace above $17.00 and spiked above the $18.00 resistance level. It seems that the price is having a hard time struggling the pace above $18.00 level and a new high is formed near the $18,75 level with it correcting lower. The pair is trading below the $18.00 level with initial support on the downside nearing the $17.25 level.

The 23.6% fib retracement level from the recent increase at the $12.48 swing low to $18,76 high is nearing the $17.25 level so if there are more downsides, the price could continue moving lower than $16.20. On the upside, the $18.00 zone is a key breakout area with the next major resistance for LINK nearing the $18.50 level and a close above this levels could open the doors for more increase in the near-term with the next stop being $20.

If there’s a fresh decline, the LINK price will meet the buyers near the $16.20 level with the next major support on the downside near the $15.60 zone. The 50% fib retracement level from the increase at the $12.48 swing low to the $18.76 swing high is nearing the $15.60 level as well right as LINK revisited the $18 price range. The MACD for LINK/USD is gaining momentum in the bullish zone while the 4-hour RSI is close to the 70 level. The major hurdles and support levels are set at $17.25, $16.20, and $15.60.

The post Does the high price of Bitcoin attract the attention of fraudsters? appeared first on Coin Journal.

Online scams are as old as the internet itself. The large educational and generational gap between the young and old has given rise to fraud in the world of finance. First, we saw it happen with cheques and credit card payments; these eventually became too hard to outsmart. Nowadays, cryptocurrency fraud is booming and exists in all different forms. The more people choose to buy Bitcoin, the more creative these frauds become.

In this article, we look at the progress of Bitcoin, how it fuels scammers’ creativity, and what you can do to avoid falling victim to such practices. Let’s delve in.

Different types of frauds in the crypto space

There are many different types of cryptocurrency scams. You may or may not have heard about them during your crypto journey. Let’s offer a short summary before we proceed:

  • Dating and romance scams – Individuals get “catfished” into sending cryptocurrency to imaginary personas which are portrayed by scammers through online dating platforms.
  • Investment scams – Fake ICOs, fake exchanges, and scammy altcoins whose only purpose is a large pump and dump scheme.
  • Ponzi and pyramid schemes – These are projects that operate on the basis of a continuous influx of new user signups. Once these “dry out”, the platform goes bankrupt.
  • Email scams – The most popular type of scams in the industry, becoming more sophisticated each passing year. Fraudsters will pretend to be the support team behind your wallet and request information linked to your address. They are also known as phishing scams.
  • Crypto giveaways – Influential crypto personalities will never promote giveaways. Yet, somehow, scammers always find a way to impersonate authoritative figures in the crypto space and pretend to host crypto giveaways. There is a catch though – you will first need to send your funds to an address before (supposedly) receiving the reward. Of course, the reward never comes.
  • Phone scams – Finally, one more popular type of fraud is that which occurs through phone communication. Fraudsters will call you pretending to be the support team of the cryptocurrency exchange you are using and ask for your password and 2FA details. As soon as you offer this information, they access your account and steal all the funds contained in it.

Hacking is also on the rise

Aside from small-time scams like the ones discussed above, many groups organise heists from exchange platforms, getting hundreds of millions of dollars through stolen value.

The examples are too many to count. MTGox being the first. The massive NEM hack. Even the recent 2010 Binance hack, where bad actors claimed more than a hundred million dollars in Bitcoin value.

The good thing is that there are now systems in place to “taint” stolen funds, making them impossible to sell on exchange platforms of all sorts. There is also an active effort to whitelist as many addresses as humanly possible, to track stolen funds easier. Overall, the industry seems to be more regulated than before, and the hacks are decreasing as a result. However, there is still a lot of fraud-related activity on decentralised exchanges since there is no way or reason to control the platform’s safety. For some, this is good; for others, it can cost them their life savings.

How to protect your funds from scams and fraud

Each type of scam will naturally require a different approach when it comes to protection. The first thing you can do is effortless: Never click on anything you don’t understand and NEVER EVER give out your personal information to anyone you do not know. This includes your wallet address, private keys, pin code, 2FA, or exchange passwords. In most cases, scams work due to the user’s voluntary participation who does not have a clear understanding of the process.

The second thing you can do is research – Tons of it! When you come across an email that asks for your personal information, Google the sender’s email address and see if anything comes up. Exchanges and crypto wallet companies will never ask for your personal information.

When it comes to the coins you want to invest in; whether that is an ICO or a small-cap altcoin, research is equally important. Read up on the project’s fundamentals, the whitepaper, and watch any videos or podcasts where the team participates. No information on the team? Then it’s best to stay away.

Finally, the best way to protect yourself from scams is to keep a level-headed approach. Use your logic when trying to understand a situation you come across. Is a password essential? Is this update mandatory? What about the risks associated with investing in a cryptocurrency that is obviously a pyramid scheme? Emotional intelligence helps you make better investment decisions and leads to more profit over time.
