Is Bitcoin a Ponzi scheme? Pick your side in the latest Cointelegraph Crypto Duel!
Friday, March 5, 2021 7:32 PM

Similar to other Bitcoin skeptics, Stolfi repeatedly defined Bitcoin as a Ponzi scheme. The core of his argument is that Bitcoin doesn’t produce any cash flows and the money with which Bitcoin investors are paid comes exclusively from new investors buying Bitcoin. So it doesn't have cash flows and that doesn't make it a Ponzi scheme.”, Rochard said. Stolfi, however, is convinced that effective Ponzi schemes do not promise return since that would be "a dead giveaway." As an example, the computer scientist mentioned the notorious Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, which defrauded thousands of investors for $65 billion.

Friday, March 5, 2021 6:56 PM

Bitcoin Buying Bitcoin Couldn’t Save MicroStrategy Shares From 50% CrashBitcoin price has had one of its largest corrections since the bull market began, and has since struggled to reclaim $50,000.

Along with the price of Bitcoin, MicroStrategy shares have risen almost as sharply as investors used the company to gain exposure to the cryptocurrency, and also bet big on the reemerging brand as well.

Cuomo’s Nursing Home Scandal Is Only Getting Uglier
Friday, March 5, 2021 6:10 PM

Soon after the New York State Health Department released a report last July outlining COVID-19’s impact on nursing homes, Andrew Cuomo began touting his administration’s success in bringing the coronavirus to heel. But according to new reports, the document dramatically downplayed the toll the virus exacted on nursing home residents, thanks to the intervention of top aides to the governor. “There is only one way forward,” assembly member Zohran Kwame Mamdani tweeted in response to the Times’ report. “Nursing home residents and workers deserve to live and work in safe environments,” James said in a statement after releasing her report in January. Those unfavorable figures may worsen for Cuomo as he sinks deeper into the morass of scandal.
