Are there trademarks on cryptocurrency logos? /r/Bitcoin

Are there trademarks on cryptocurrency logos? /Bitcoin submitted by ABitcoinAllBot to BitcoinAll [link] [comments]

Is that bitcoin logo I keep seeing trademarked?

I am thinking of making a website and was wondering if an icon of the dollar sign B symbol I keep seeing is fair game to use.
Thanks

LOEx Market Research Report on June 23: Bitcoin daily active addresses show a downward trend

LOEx Market Research Report on June 23: Bitcoin daily active addresses show a downward trend
[Today's Hot Tips]
1. [Anonymous person completes registration of Bitcoin name and logo at the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office]
According to cointelegraph, the name and logo of Bitcoin have been registered in the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office. This process was witnessed by Ignacio Rubio Menendez, a compliance expert and lawyer specializing in commercial law. The registrant said: "I am a bitcoin salesperson, my idea is to protect Bitcoin and take responsibility, so that any new user can cooperate with me 100% safely, away from the scam named Bitcoin, use real Bitcoin." It should be noted that the file refers to a logo that contains a white letter "B" in an orange circle, which will be the official logo of Bitcoin.
2. [Payment giant PayPal may launch cryptocurrency transactions]
According to Coindesk news on June 23, three people familiar with the matter said that financial technology giant PayPal plans to sell cryptocurrencies directly to its 325 million users. One of the industry sources revealed that PayPal and Venmo will allow direct trading of cryptocurrencies. They will have some built-in wallet function, so users can store cryptocurrencies there. Industry sources said PayPal is expected to "work with multiple exchanges to obtain liquidity." Another source confirmed that PayPal is seeking to provide a cryptocurrency trading service and said the service is expected to be launched "in the next three months or earlier". It is reported that PayPal established a long-term cooperative relationship with Coinbase as early as 2016. As of now, PayPal official said it will not comment on rumors or speculation. Note: Venmo is a mobile payment service under PayPal, which allows users to transfer money to others using mobile phones or web pages.
3. 【The main forces of long and short appear all! Ten days to move 160,000 BTC trading directions exposed】
During the BTC shrinkage adjustment period, the 24-hour trading volume was not the lowest but only lower. On June 22, the trading volume shrank to $ 15 billion, indicating a significant reduction in trading heat. This time is the moment when investors pay attention to trading opportunities. The shrinkage did not affect the BTC's rebound rhythm, because at present, BTC is continuing to expand its growth.
Investigate the reason, you can pay attention to the changes in the amount of BTC flowing into and out of the exchange. As early as June 12, the total amount of BTC flowing into the exchange reached 40,000 BTC. In the past two days just past the weekend, nearly 120,000 BTC flowed out of the exchange, releasing a signal that the selling pressure has been greatly reduced.
[Today's market analysis]
Bitcoin (BTC)BTC has shown a shocking uptrend since early this morning; the first wave of pull-ups started around 0 o'clock, and then pulled up again around 4 o'clock after finishing sideways, reaching a maximum of 9785 USDT, and now slightly down below 9700 USDT. Mainstream currencies followed the day. BTC is currently reported at 9634.4 USDT at the LOEx Global, a 24h increase of 1.54%.
The current fundamental performance is very general, which is in stark contrast to Bitcoin's high sideways price, and the two are diverging. This state cannot last forever, there are two ways to break the game. The first is that the main force spends a lot of money to violently pull the market and attract funds. In this way, more people use it; second, the main force smashes down and waits for Bitcoin to find its place in a certain scenario. The fundamentals will come up, and then push up the price.
How likely is the former? Depends on the amount of funds to enter the market, according to this year's economic situation, I'm afraid not too optimistic. The possibility of the latter depends on the market demand of Bitcoin, a large number of people think that inflation of fiat currency is good for Bitcoin. However, there is currently no direct evidence to support this view.
Bitcoin's daily active addresses show a downward trend and recently hit their lowest level since April 26. The highest currency price on April 26 was $7,700, and today is $9,600. So compared, the fundamentals cannot support the current price. Is the price going to fall? Not necessarily, the relationship between the price and the value is the positional relationship between the dog and the owner. The dog runs for a while and runs behind. In the short term, price will deviate from value, and in the long term, price will follow value. The shock cannot continue indefinitely, so let's choose a compromise method. How about a slight Bitcoin callback?
Operation suggestions:
Support level: the first support level is 9600 points, the second support level is 9400 integers;
Resistance level: the first resistance level is 9800 points, the second resistance level is 9900 points.

List of moderately difficult skribbl words for your new friend group (1200+ words)

That is to say that this list contains words that this list contains words that:
  1. Usually aren't instantly guess-able (like star, apple, or Nike).
  2. Can be played with a group of acquaintances (I play with a group of interns at work to blow off time)
Created this list by modifying an existing difficult word list we found online and adding a bunch of new words. If you see a stupid difficult word, it was probably a word from the existing difficult word list that I forgot to remove. (amicable and reimbursement were the type of bs I removed lol).

latest call...running diary

Quick thoughts as I listened in real time. Only half way through, will come back and finish later.
Classic stuff. If you create a video...with the right copy...they will come.
  1. CME Bitcoin day 1 Chris explains he would have buried that story on presumed "low volume" in his expert opinion. This from the same man who highlights CWH's and the ongoing SEC investigation in recent SEC rule review documentation. I mean, talk about something that should be buried. He really does think he is going to beat the SEC and be part of some new rule set.
  2. Maine Governor veto of legalized gaming...my god. The moral argument is the worst, they are making it safer through transparency. People in Maine don't book off shore? There are what? 17+ states already in. What is he going to do when the wire act goes?
  3. Alper anything to say? Nope, just wanted to know what state. Probably smart to not fuel Chris' rants about anything not ASM.
  4. Neil takes the stage....silence....nothing to add. Thank's Neil, dynamite as always!
  5. Chris figures the road to regulation is non-regulation.
  6. 20 years later and nothing like ASM exists in the world. Oh, wait...
  7. chris rambling about the "tech"? Is he talking about the actual software or math of market? Tech feel 20 years old IMO and the math has been broken (see $10B market cap coming next week).
  8. Note on tech; ASM tech is literally an open order book exchange. There are literally a million of them which look and feel better from both a UX and UI perspective. For someone who says he knows so much about crypto pull any exchange and the "tech" is better than ASM.
  9. No Action Letter? Are we to believe the No action will not be effected by the SEC investigation or Judge calling it a Ponzi?
  10. Chris now going rogue against the establishment and regulatory process.
  11. Chris debates, should have kept ASM in Costa Rica? Pura Vida!
  12. 25 Trademarks? ummmmm, money well spent?
  13. Chris calls for the first order for the order book! We need a customer!
  14. Chris positions ASM to ask for forgiveness and not permission. Regulation be damned! America!!
  15. Chris is a cord cutter! Long live youtube!
  16. Random thought, Chris doesn't seem to ever speak to the actual market and news of sports or the speed at which teams, leagues and brands are moving in and around the "gaming" space. Not just "betting". seems a major blind spot and makes him sound very off market for someone who is CEO of a sports stock market.
  17. Chris says to now create videos to bring in the team fans so they can be the advocates to the teams. Seems like a great strategy that will work very quickly. Nothing like fans cold calling on ASM's behalf because of a video they saw. Social media, tho!!
  18. See point 16, how is he so oblivious to what is happening in 2020 in sports?? Cowboys office on a Tuesday??
  19. Clipper Darrel reference -- DRINK!!
  20. Chris is an expert at affiliate metrics. Don't even try anything else.
  21. Here come the Packers and Stock talk...casual fans know this and will jump on.
  22. Here comes Alper! He hates the GB example...this should be interesting...
  23. Alper seems to argue GB is more buy and hold (souvenir) vs trading, which is what ASM wants. A sound argument against the GB narrative. Will see what Chris says...
  24. Chris only wants to use it as a way to associate the team/public ownership.
  25. Alper brings up the fact that you don't own the actual team and only the cash flow is from the the platform itself. Interesting, he seems to believe in the math. (publicly)
  26. Chris wants new words on how to speak to fans.
  27. Question; With $5M spent, has an actual marketing team or branding team ever been brought in?? Listening to Chris talk about a video he wants to produce is insanity. Holy shit.
  28. Alper, another good point. Its the market, stupid! haha
  29. Chris really getting exposed. He's literally the guy at the dart board.
  30. Alper hates GB. Hates videos.
  31. Chris arguing the video push. Think the big take away is a clear issue with Chris wanting to wear every hat in ASM. Why is he now a video producer and marketer? This highlights the major issue ASM has had. Chris' hands in places they shouldn't be.
  32. Good copy in our video will get all sports fans to come to ASM. And automated leads.
  33. AND WE'RE BACK...UPDATE AFTER INTERMISSION
  34. Alper defends the need for a compelling call to action and says the video idea is basically ridiculous. basically common sense (meant as compliment).
  35. Chris' response "my goodness", he wants his chance to make a video because "other videos" have gained traction.
  36. Chris defends if there is a "video" fans will love concept of trading shares so much they will email biz dev teams. because the video (that chris makes) is amazing. He hasn't had "a hand in it" yet. Steven fucking Spielberg.
  37. As chris speaks it goes back to chris' lack of insight to the sports world post papa. he sounds like he's speaking in 2016
  38. Bernie reference - DRINK!
  39. Zach reference - DRINK!
  40. Chris arguing "build it and they will come" or email teams. not sure
  41. Alper arguing the reality of what they are trying to sell fans because on ASM doesn't give ownership and in the actual stock market people actually own a piece of the company and still choose to do nothing to help that company. Clearly articulating why a video isn't going to drive thousands of fans to email the teams. Chris really has lost it, he only sees one way. Beautiful to watch.
  42. Neil jumps in...should be good. "We should build a product, market, then get users". He must have missed Chris talking about the "tech".
  43. Neil says there is no product. Says learning market is shit.
  44. Go Neil go! Says there is NO MONEY.
  45. Neil, "Show me the money"
  46. Chris says ASM needs an actual deal with every team!!! woah....that sounds unlikely. says teams won't touch it. UNLESS, smaller teams get in.
  47. Bernie reference - DRINK!
  48. Zach reference - DRINK!
  49. Chris says Bernie won't touch it as is.
  50. Chris admits market as is is worthless without teams/leagues. Can't go to real money.
  51. HOW WILL THEY RESET AND GET PEOPLE THEIR MONEY AFTER THAT ADMISSION. MARKET IS WORTHLESS AS IS WITHOUT TEAMS.
  52. Chris didn't know about licensing. Luck. Why non-profit umbrella allows use of logos (or so they think now...)
  53. Kinda of confused. Earlier in call Chris was all about regulation be damned. Now he is discussing risk in going forward with a real money market as is.
  54. turning on a real market is a risk chris won't take for fear of using logos? why not simply use colors? fair use?
  55. Alper discussing what they need to show leagues/teams = product market fit. not proof of concept.
  56. Alper argues they need scale to have any chance at growing. chicken and egg (leagues vs fans first)
  57. Chris wants to refine how to get the "word out" on ASM.
  58. Neil is back! He wants the market open with real money!
  59. Chris outlines the risks. I'm still missing why not simply go to the leagues and get licensing agreements to do this. Sort of like selling hats and t-shirts. Letting this drag out has been a death sentence.
  60. Chris says leagues won't touch ASM.
  61. Chris won't defend path to go real money with big 4.
  62. I thought chris was resigning in 2020, that would solve that?
  63. Hello to all the new listeners. What new listeners? I guess the people giving donations?

Headline...
Chris admits the real money market using big 4 is dead and done. Basically says the current market is worthless and that people are trading for "fun" effectively because there is no real money behind it.

Mitch McConnell's Brother-in-Law One of the Masterminds of Trump-Russia

Jim Breyer, Mitch McConnell's brother-in-law, Facilitates Russia’s Takeover of Facebook through Yuri Milner
In 2005 Jim Breyer, a partner at Accel Partners, invested $1 million of his own money into Facebook and gained a seat on the board (1).
In Feb 2009 Jim Breyer visited Russia with a number of other Silicone Valley investors. While there, Yuri Milner, a Russian tech entrepreneur who founded DST with close ties to the Kremlin, hosted a dinner to cap the entire event (2). As one Moscow source put it:
DST has the backing of the big boys at the top in the Kremlin, which is why it will go from strength to strength (5)
Milner found out Breyer liked Impressionist art and took him to Russian’s Hermitage Museum to view Matisse paintings otherwise closed off to the public. Three months later Yuri Milner’s DST invested into Facebook at a bloated value. (2)
Mr Milner dismissed suggestions that at a valuation of $10bn he overpaid for his stake in Facebook, especially given that the social networking site has yet to prove it has turned to profit. (3)
it’s seen as a desperate and rather vulgar deal on the one hand—Milner buying a small stake in Facebook, valuing the entire company at $10 billion—and, on the other, Facebook debasing itself by taking Russian money. Russian money! In fact, it seems rather like a desperate deal for both parties (in the midst of the banking crisis, Facebook has only two other bidders for this round—and none from the top VC tier) (4)
By the end of 2009, DST would own 10% of Facebook. Later revealed by the Paradise Papers, DST’s investments into Facebook were financed by the Russian government through state-owned Gazprom. That’s right, in 2009 Russia owned 10% of Facebook. (6)
Soon after, the two continued to work together on other investments. Breyer introduced Milner to Groupon, and Milner helped Breyer’s Accel invest into Spotify (7). In 2010 an Accel representative joined a gaggle of Silicon Valley investors to Russia and signed a letter promising to invest into the country (8).

Jim Breyer and Rupert Murdoch
Then in Nov 2010 Jim Breyer invested into Artsy.net, run by Rupert Murdoch’s then-wife, Wendi Deng, and Russia oligarch Roman Abramovich’s then-wife, Dasha Zhukova. Jared Kushner’s brother, Josh, also invested in the fledgling company (1).
At the time Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation had a joint venture with the Russian mob-linked oligarch Boris Berezovsky, called LogoVaz News Corporation, that invested in Russian media (4). It was Berezovsky’s protege close to Putin, Roman Abramovich, who tied Berezovsky to the mob.
According to the Mirror Online, Abramovich paid Berezovsky tens, and even hundreds, of millions every year for "krysha", or mafia protection. (5)
In June 2011, Rupert Murdoch ended his foray into social media by selling Myspace to Justin Timberlake (2) and elected Jim Breyer to the board of News Corp (3).

Jim Breyer invests in Wickr with Erik Prince
In 2012 Breyer invested in a encrypted messenger app, Wickr. Other investors include Gilman Louie and Erik Prince. To understand the connection, we need to go back to 1987. Breyer, newly hired to Accel Partners, made his first investment with Louie’s video game company that owned the rights to the Soviet Union’s first video game export, Tetris (1).
Louie went off to become the founding CEO of the CIA-backed In-Q-Tel which invested in Palantir. Palantir’s founder, Peter Thiel, sat on the board of Facebook with Breyer (2)(3). On the board of In-Q-Tel is Buzzy Krongard (7), the man who helped Erik Prince’s Blackwater receive their first CIA contract, who also joined the board of Blackwater in 2007 (6).
Around that same time, 2012-2013, Prince met Vincent Tchenguiz, founder of Cambridge Analytica's parent company, SCL (8), and was introduced to Cyrus Behbehani of Glencore, one of the purchasers of Rosneft stock detailed in the Steele Dossier (9). Cyrus Behbehani sat on the board of RusAl with Christophe Charlier, who is also Chairman of the board at Renaissance Capital (10), an early investor of DST (11).

Jim Breyer and Yuri Milner invest in Prismatic
That same year, 2012, Jim Breyer invested in Prismatic, a news aggregate app, with Yuri Milner.
Prismatic’s technology works by crawling Facebook, Twitter and the web (“anything with a URL”) to find news stories. It then uses machine learning to categorize them by Topic and Publication. Prismatic users follow these Topics and Publications, as well as Individuals and the algorithm then uses these preferences and user-activity signals to present a relevant Newsfeed. (1)
Sounds like the beginning of what could be a propaganda dissemination tool. That goes in-line with Yuri Milner’s vision of Social Media. Milner’s theory:
“Zuckerberg’s Law”: Every 12 to 18 months the amount of information being shared between people on the web doubles... Over time people will bypass more general websites such as Google in favor of sites built atop social networks where they can rely on friends’ opinions to figure out where to get the best fall handbag, how to change a smoke detector, or whether to vacation in Istanbul or Rome. “You will pick your network, and the network will filter everything for you,” Milner explained. (2)
So how does Milner intend to utilize the data gathered through social media? Let’s see what Milner did to Russia’s top social media site, VK:
In January 2014, Durov sold his 12 percent stake to Ivan Tavrin, the CEO of major Russian mobile operator Megafon, whose second-largest shareholder is Alisher Usmanov, one of Russia’s most powerful oligarchs, a man who has long been lobbying to take over VK.
Then, in April 2014, Durov stated he had sold his stake in the company and became a citizen of St Kitts and Nevis back in February after "coming under increasing pressure" from the Russian Federal Security Service to hand over personal details of users who were members of a VK group dedicated to the Euromaidan protest movement in Ukraine. (3)
The Euromaidan protest ousted the Russian-backed president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, whom Paul Manafort had worked to install. (4)

Facebook talks US Elections with Russia
In Oct 2012 Zuckerberg traveled to Moscow and met Dmitry Medvedev where they had a very interesting conversation:
Mr. Zuckerberg and Mr. Medvedev talked about Facebook’s role in politics, though only jokingly in reference to its importance in the American presidential campaign, according to Mr. Medvedev’s press office. (1)
While there he also visited Victor Vekselberg's Skolkovo, who’s currently under investigation by Mueller for donations to Trump (2).
As Obama’s effort to reboot diplomatic relations [with Russia] sputtered, federal officials began raising alarms about the Skolkovo Foundation’s ties to Putin.
“The foundation may be a means for the Russian government to access our nation’s sensitive or classified research, development facilities and dual-use technologies” (3)
And took time to teach Russian's how to hack Facebook friend data, the same hack used by Cambridge Analytica, Donald Trump’s campaign data firm.
In a 2012 video, Facebook's Simon Cross shows the Moscow crowd how they can "get a ton of other information" on Facebook users and their friends. "We now have an access token, so now let's make the same request again and see what happens," Cross explains (YouTube). "We've got a little bit more data, but now we can start doing really interesting stuff. We can get my friends. We can get some more information about one of my friends. Here's Connor, who you'll meet later. Say 'hello,' Connor. He's waving. And we can also get a ton of other information as well." (4)
Facebook later hired the individual who hacked Facebook and sold the data to Cambridge Analytica (5).
A month after that visit, Putin propaganda mouth-piece Konstantin Rykov, claims he began helping with Trump’s presidential aspirations (6). Days later, Trump registered “Make America Great Again” (7). The following year, Russia's Troll Factory, the Internet Research Agency, was created as was Cambridge Analytica.

Andrei Shleifer and Len Blavatnik
Len Blavatnik, a US-Russian oligarch currently under investigation by Mueller, graduated from Harvard in 1989 and quickly formed Renova-Invest with Viktor Vekselberg, another oligarch under Mueller’s investigation (7)(8). Since then Blavatnik has maintained close ties to the university.
In 1992, after the fall of the Soviet Union, Andrei Shleifer led a consortium of Harvard professors to assist Russia’s vice-president, Antaoly Chubais, with the privatization of Russia’s state-run assets. Scandal broke when it was revealed Shleifer, through Blavatnik’s company and with Blavatnik’s guidance, invested in the very companies he worked to privatize. (6)
Years later, Shleifer continued to fund loans to Blavatnik for Russian ventures through his hedge fund, managed by his wife, Nancy Zimmerman (9), and created the Russian Recovery Fund which bought $230 million of Russian debt from Julian Robertson’s Tiger Management (10), who’s seed fun, Tiger Global, later invested in Milner’s DST.
Len Blavatnik and Viktor Vekselberg are major investors in Rusal (11).
Schleifer is still a professor at Harvard.

Breyer and Harvard
On April 2013, two months after Breyer was elected to the board of Harvard (1), Len Blavatnik, donated $50 million to the school (2) and joined the Board of Dean’s Advisors (3)(4) and Harvard’s Global Advisory Council (6) alongside Breyer. The next month Breyer announced plans to step down from the board of Facebook with an intention of focusing on his latest Harvard appointment (5).
In 2016 Len Blavatnik donated over $7 million to GOP candidates, including $2.5 million to Mitch McConnell himself (7).

Jim Breyer, Blackstone Group, and Saudi Arabia
In 2011 Schwarzman was named to the board of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (2), headed by Kirill Dimitriev.
In June 2016, during Trump’s presidential campaign, Jim Breyer met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin-Salman, or MBS (8). The next month Breyer joined the board of Blackstone Group (1) alongside Stephen Schwarzman and Jacob Rothschild (3). In the past Blackstone Group had loaned Kushner Companies a combined $400 million over multiple projects (7). In the 2018 election cycle, Schwzarman donated $5 million to the pro-McConnell superPAC, Senate Majority PAC (13).
Jacob’s brother, Nat, is business partners with both Oleg Deripaska (4), Rupert Murdoch, and Dick Cheney (5). Nat is also a major investor in Glencore, one of the purchasers of Rosneft stock detailed in the Steele Dossier (6), and RusAl.
In January 2017, Breyer’s business partner at Wickr, Erik Prince, was introduced to Dimitriev by MBS’s emissary, George Nader, and the Crown Prince of the UAE (10).
On October 22, 2018, three weeks after the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, when most American investors were spooked away from Saudi Arabia, Jim Breyer showed up at an MBS-hosted Saudi business summit alongside Kirill Dimitriev of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (9). That same day, MBS pledged $20 billion for Blackstone Group's new infrastructure fund (11) to fund Elaine Chao's $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan (12). Elaine Chao, Mitch McConnells wife and Jim Breyer's sister-in-law, is Trump's Secretary of Transportation.

I will be maintaining the Electrum Cash wallet. AMA

With August 1st approaching, I understand there's questions. Here's a few basics:
  1. Code changes are minimal.
  2. Code is a fork of Electrum
  3. Repo is here: http://www.github.com/fyookball/electrum
  4. Kyuupichan is the lead developer. He is the creator of ElectrumX and long time member of the Electrum dev community
  5. Hardware (trezor) won't be supported iniitally but may be in the future
  6. We will be ready by Aug 1st. We are doing final tweaks, preparing the downloadables and creating the website.
  7. There are several electrum severs but you can add your own easily with electrumX and ABC
I encourage everyone to review the code and ask me anything. Thanks.
I really dont know what "AMA best practices are" , but I plan to answer a chunk of questions in one large post this evening, and probably another one tomorrow , as needed etc.

A London-Based Company Successfully Trademarks the Name 'Bitcoin'

A London-Based Company Successfully Trademarks the Name 'Bitcoin' submitted by Espacialastico to Buttcoin [link] [comments]

A UK company has trademarked the word "BITCOIN"

I'll keep this sort. I run a very small t-shirt business and a few of my shirts contain the word bitcoin. Today I received a cease and desist letter claiming I'm breaking their trademark for the use of the word "BITCOIN", I didn't believe it at first since I knew that bitcoin and the bitcoin logo are public domain, and even a similar trademark application in the US failed. Well turns out a they did manage to get a trademark filed, it can be viewed here. So basically anyone in the UK that puts the word bitcoin on any type of clothing or even a drink, can be sued.
I'm posting this in the hopes someone knows the trademark laws better than me. I believe a trademark invalidation can be filed to get this removed since bitcoin is somewhat a generic term and therefore should be free for everyone to use. If anyone has the know how to file a invalidation please do so - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/trade-marks-invalidation

Advice regarding this trademark infringement cease and desist letter I received

The Letter (blacked out sensitive info) - https://imgur.com/a/JTBZKui
Hello, I'm just looking for a little advice regarding the above letter I received today.
To keep it short, a company has managed to trademark the word Bitcoin in April 2018. I've been selling t-shirts with the bitcoin (BTC) logo on, on Etsy. My shirts are related to Bitcoin, bitcoin as in the cryptocurrency. As far as I was aware you were allowed to use the bitcoin logo as its public domain (https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Promotional_graphics).
So I've removed all the bitcoin shirts from my store, which I'm not bothered about since they don't sell. My question is do I have any legal obligation to sign the above letter and consent to the terms in the letter? I haven't sold any of these shirts since their trademark came into affect, so I don't think I owe them money (correct me if I'm wrong?). Basically is it safe to ignore this letter or not?
I'd appreciate any advice!
Thanks in advance!

7.1. The User understands and accepts that the User does not have any expectation of influence over governance and/or management of the COSS.IO Project/Platform.
7.2. The User understands and accepts that the COSS.IO Project/Platform may need to go through continued development works. The User understands and accepts that as part of the continued development, an upgrade of the COS Tokens may be required (hard-fork) and that, if the User decides not to participate in such upgrade, he may no longer use his COS Tokens and that non upgraded COS Tokens may lose their functionality in full.
8. Audit of the Smart Contract System
8.1. The Smart Contract System has been, on a reasonable effort basis, audited and approved by technical experts. Technical experts have confirmed that the Smart Contract System has, with regard to both accuracy and security, been programmed according to the current state of the art.
8.2. However, the User understands and accepts that smart contract technology is still in an early development stage and its application is of experimental nature, which carries significant operational, technological, financial, regulatory and reputational risks. Accordingly, while the audit conducted raises the level of security and accuracy, the User understands and accepts that the audit does not amount to any form of warranty, including direct or indirect warranties that the Smart Contract System and the COS Tokens are fit for a particular purpose and/or do not contain any weaknesses, vulnerabilities and/or bugs which could cause, inter alia, the complete loss of COS Tokens.
9. Risks
9.1. The User understands and accepts the risks in connection with accepting the token swap of the User’s existing COSS/LALA Tokens in exchange for the COS Token. The User shall not hold COSS.IO and any other third party liable in the event of any of the following risks occurring. In particular, the User understands the inherent risks listed hereinafter in addition to any other risks:
9.1.1. Risk of software weaknesses: The User understands and accepts that the Smart Contract System concept, the underlying software application and software platform (i.e. the Ethereum blockchain) is still in an early development stage and unproven. Accordingly, there is no warranty that the process for creating COS Tokens will be uninterrupted or error-free and that there is an inherent risk that the software could contain weaknesses, vulnerabilities and/or bugs causing, inter alia, the complete loss of COS Tokens.
9.1.2. Regulatory Risk: The User understands and accepts that the blockchain technology allows new forms of interaction and that it is possible that certain jurisdictions will apply existing regulations on, or introduce new regulations addressing, blockchain technology based applications, which may be contrary to the current setup of the Smart Contract System and which may, inter alia, result in substantial modifications of the Smart Contract System and/or the COSS.IO Project/Project, including its termination and the loss of COS Tokens for the User.
9.1.3. Risk of abandonment/lack of success: The User understands and accepts that the token swap of the User’s existing COSS/LALA Tokens in exchange for the COS Token and the continued development of the COSS.IO Project/Platform may be abandoned for a number of reasons, including lack of interest from the public, lack of funding, lack of commercial success or prospects (e.g. caused by competing projects). The User therefore understands that there is no assurance that, even if the COSS.IO Project/Platform is partially or fully developed and launched, the User will receive any benefits through the COS Tokens held by him.
9.1.4. Risk associated with other applications: The User understands and accepts that the COSS.IO Project/Platform may give rise to other alternative projects, promoted by unaffiliated third parties, under which COS Tokens will have no intrinsic value.
9.1.5. Risk of loss of private key: COS Tokens can only be accessed by using an Ethereum wallet with a combination of User’s account information (address), private key and password. The private key is encrypted with a password. The User understands and accepts that if his private key file or password respectively gets lost or stolen, the obtained COS Tokens associated with the User’s account (address) or password will be unrecoverable and will be permanently lost.
9.1.6. Risk of theft: The User understands and accepts that the Smart Contract System concept, the underlying software application and software platform (i.e. the Ethereum blockchain) may be exposed to attacks by hackers or other individuals that could result in theft or loss of COS Tokens.
9.1.7. Risk of Ethereum mining attacks: The User understands and accepts that, as with other cryptocurrencies, the blockchain used for the Smart Contract System is susceptible to mining attacks, including but not limited to double-spend attacks, majority mining power attacks, "selfish-mining" attacks, and race condition attacks. Any successful attack presents a risk to the Smart Contract System, expected proper execution and sequencing of COS Tokens transactions, and expected proper execution and sequencing of contract computations.
10. COSS.IO Project/Platform Execution
10.1. To the maximum extent permitted by all applicable laws, regulations and rules and except as otherwise provided in these Terms, COSS.IO hereby expressly disclaims its liability and shall in no case be liable to the User or any person for the following:

16.1. COSS.IO may provide certain hyperlinks to third party websites, and the inclusion of any hyperlinks or any advertisement of any third party on the COSS website or other platforms does not imply endorsement by COSS.IO of their websites, products or business practices. If the User accesses and uses any third party websites, products, services, platforms and/or business, the User does that solely at his/her own risk for which COSS.IO will bear no liability.

CME Group Announces Launch of Bitcoin Futures

Tue Oct 31 2017
CHICAGO, Oct. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CME Group, the world's leading and most diverse derivatives marketplace, today announced it intends to launch bitcoin futures in the fourth quarter of 2017, pending all relevant regulatory review periods.
The new contract will be cash-settled, based on the CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR) which serves as a once-a-day reference rate of the U.S. dollar price of bitcoin. Bitcoin futures will be listed on and subject to the rules of CME.
"Given increasing client interest in the evolving cryptocurrency markets, we have decided to introduce a bitcoin futures contract," said Terry Duffy, CME Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "As the world's largest regulated FX marketplace, CME Group is the natural home for this new vehicle that will provide investors with transparency, price discovery and risk transfer capabilities."
Since November 2016, CME Group and Crypto Facilities Ltd. have calculated and published the BRR, which aggregates the trade flow of major bitcoin spot exchanges during a calculation window into the U.S. Dollar price of one bitcoin as of 4:00 p.m. London time. The BRR is designed around the IOSCO Principles for Financial Benchmarks. Bitstamp, GDAX, itBit and Kraken are the constituent exchanges that currently contribute the pricing data for calculating the BRR.
"We are excited to work with CME Group on this product and see the BRR used as the settlement mechanism of this important product," said Dr.Timo Schlaefer, CEO of Crypto Facilities. "The BRR has proven to reliably and transparently reflect global bitcoin-dollar trading and has become the price reference of choice for financial institutions, trading firms and data providers worldwide."
CME Group and Crypto Facilities Ltd. also publish the CME CF Bitcoin Real Time Index (BRTI) to provide price transparency to the spot bitcoin market. The BRTI combines global demand to buy and sell bitcoin into a consolidated order book and reflects the fair, instantaneous U.S. dollar price of bitcoin in a spot price. The BRTI is published in real time and is suitable for marking portfolios, executing intra-day bitcoin transactions and risk management.
Cryptocurrency market capitalization has grown in recent years to $172 billion, with bitcoin representing more than 54 percent of that total, or $94 billion. The bitcoin spot market has also grown to trade roughly $1.5 billion in notional value each day.
