    Hey, This was really good and informative interview, thank you very much! You did not mentioned the biggest secret in this space right now. People will be surprised when the Ethereum Child Chain OMG Network will be in full production mode. It will be the first scalable and regulatory friendly ETH layer 2 solution for value transactions (payments etc.). It amazes me that no one talks about it out loud, even thought all the big players (Bitfinex, Binance, Huobi, OKEX + The World Bank, Toyota, Microsoft, City Bank, All the biggest banks from Japan) are heavily involved. Can you please explain me that how the h*ll all the "top" analysts haven't catch this? Have great day!

    Thanks for another great insight guys. It makes me realize how much I am learning from these discussions that otherwise would pass me bye. The crypto world is truly fascinating and the knowledge provided via RV make it even more so for me. And now Iran enter the fray by taking bitcoins direct from miners. At a guess other governments and huge financial institutions could have this in mind. The effect on exchanges may be substantial as it would be for retail investors. Any thoughts?
