  • Frequent Speaker @ Clinton Global Initiative http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2ytfrs https://archive.is/MWKee
  • Criticisms: -- In his 'Planet of Slums'[104] Mike Davis argues that de Soto, who Davis calls 'the global guru of neo-liberal populism', is essentially promoting what the statist left in South America and India has always promoted—individual land titling. Davis argues that titling is the incorporation into the formal economy of cities, which benefits more wealthy squatters but is disastrous for poorer squatters, and especially tenants who simply cannot afford incorporation into the fully commodified formal economy. -- An article by Madeleine Bunting for The Guardian (UK) claimed that de Soto's suggestions would in some circumstances cause more harm than benefit, and referred to The Mystery of Capital as "an elaborate smokescreen" used to obscure the issue of the power of the globalized elite. She cited de Soto's employment history as evidence of his bias in favor of the powerful. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2000/sep/11/imf.comment http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/hey_wait_a_minute/2005/01/the_de_soto_delusion.html

PSA: 31 Chinese cities have GDP the size of countries, and they're all rushing into Bithumb. This is your second chance to ride the Bitcoin rocket again through Bitcoin Cash.

Only 3 things you need to know:
1) China banned Bitcoin trading.
2) Chinese moved trading to the Bithumb exchange in Korea.
3) China has almost 1.4 billion population, and 31 cities with economies the size of countries:
In the past 2 hours there have been many comments wondering/complaining about why Bitcoin Cash prices are being influenced by just one exchange (Bithumb), because many people are not familiar with the scale they're dealing with, this link will help them visualize the situation: when the Chinese rush in, it's actually 31+ countries worth of people rushing in in terms of capital:
http://www.visualcapitalist.com/31-chinese-cities-economies-big-countries/
When the Chinese rush in they often run over everything in their path:

Alibaba Earns Record-Breaking ¥10 Billion in 3 Minutes for Singles Day
List of Chinese cities with economies the size of nations:
Gaining perspective on China’s monstrous economy isn’t always the easiest thing to do.
With 1.4 billion people and the third-largest geographical area, the country is a vast place to begin with. Add in explosive economic growth, a market-oriented but Communist government, a longstanding and complex cultural history, and self-inflicted demographic challenges – and understanding China can be even more of a puzzle.
City by City
To truly grasp the emergence of China, one approach is to look at the impressive economic footprint made by the country’s cities.
Of course, cities like Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong are the metro economic powerhouses that most people are familiar with. But have you heard of cities like Shijiazhuang, Wuxi, Changsha, Suzhou, Ningbo, Foshan, or Yantai?
There are literally dozens of Chinese cities that most people in Western countries have never heard of – yet they each hold millions of people and have an economic output comparable to nations.
Here’s a list of 35 of them, the size of their local economy, and a comparably sized national economy:
Rank Chinese City City GDP (2015, PPP, in billions) Comparable Country
1 Shanghai $810 Philippines
2 Beijing $664 U.A.E.
3 Guangzhou $524 Switzerland
4 Shenzhen $491 Sweden
5 Tianjin $478 Romania
6 Suzhou $440 Austria
7 Chongqing $425 Chile
8 Hong Kong $414 Peru

US Equity Futures Slide After Euro PMIs Stumble; China, Crude Plunge

Returning from Thanksgiving holiday, US traders who braved record cold temperatures on their office commute are in a sour mood, with S&P futures sharply lower, following the latest sharp drop in Chinese stocks, where as noted earlier the Shanghai composite lost the 2,600 level, tumbling 2.5% to one month lows after the WSJ reported Trump asked allies to boycott China's telecom giant Huawei.

The news dragged Asian shares lower, while Europe was mixed after the latest disappointing PMI which saw German Manufacturing and Services miss expectations, dragging the Eurozone Manufacturing PMI to 51.5, missing expectations of a 52.0 print, a 30 month low and the weakest since print since May 2016, while the composite index tumbled to the lowest level in 4 years in November.

Contracts on the Dow, S&P and Nasdaq all pointed lower, after Chinese equities led regional declines in Asia, with the technology sector weak on concern the U.S. is ratcheting up a campaign against Huawei Technologies. The result was a sharp drop in the Shanghai Composite, which slumped to levels last seen in late October, wiping out the recent rally.

In European trading, the preliminary PMI data dented hopes of an economic rebound into year end, sparking a rally in bunds and gilts, while 10Y TSY yields dropped to session lows of 3.04% after Thursday’s Thanksgiving holiday. Euribor contracts pushed higher after officials flagged downside risks and data added to nerves ahead of the ECB’s December meeting. Meanwhile in Italy, BTPs printed fresh highs for the week on signs of a budget compromise. European equities were mixed, printing small gains after a steady open, largely ignoring trade war concerns, which weighed on Chinese stocks. Italy's FTSE MIB outperformed peers on renewed deficit discussion optimism and helping local banks rise over 1.5%. Technology and telecommunications stocks pared initial gains as equity gains are tempered by oil oversupply concerns, acting as a drag on energy/basic resources sectors

The dollar climbed and the euro reversed earlier gains as data showed German’s growth outlook weakened; the Euro slumped on renewed fears the slowing economy may delay any ECB balance sheet normalization while the pound handed back most of Thursday’s gains. In the latest Brexit news, Tory Brexiteer Iain Duncan Smith stated that the Brexit deal will be killed off by him and his Brexiteer colleagues in Parliament, while he is said to dismiss PM May’s efforts to adopt a tech solution to the Irish border problem and implied it is meaningless, according to ITV’s Peston.

Elsewhere, emerging market currencies and shares fell on renewed China trade concerns. Bitcoin declined and is on course to lose more than 20% this week.
Meanwhile, in commodities, WTI saw another sharp decline through $53, after energy minister Khalid Al-Falih said Saudi Arabia is producing oil in excess of 10.7 million barrels a day, more than in recent years, giving the strongest indication yet that the kingdom has boosted output to record levels. “We were at 10.7-something in October, and we are above that. We will know exactly when the month is over,” Al-Falih said. That said, he added that “we will not flood the market. We will not send oil that customers don’t need. And we’ve started doing that in December, and I expect we’ll continue doing that into the new year.”

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and allied producers warned earlier this month that oil markets will probably be oversupplied in 2019. Concerns that slower economic growth and a trade war could erode demand for oil are outweighing fears of potential shortages caused by U.S. sanctions on Iranian exports and supply disruptions elsewhere.
As a result, WTI has wiped out all modest gains observed in recent days, and was trading back at 1 year lows headed for its 7th weekly drop.

Falling energy prices are just one of several indicators that concern investors about the strength of global economic growth. Meanwhile, political turmoil in Europe, lingering uncertainty over a Brexit agreement and a trade war that’s engulfed the world’s biggest economies add to nervousness according to Bloomberg. Slowing growth is one of several prospects in the U.S. that may lead Federal Reserve to more caution in 2019 should they raise rates next month.
Elsewhere, base metals decline with LME copper 1% lower. EUR offered after PMIs to trade weakest levels this week, cable declines on broad USD strength.
In overnight geopolitical news, North Korea appeared to be expanding operations at its main nuclear site, according to the IAEA, while there were also reports that atomic agency inspectors are said to be demanding North Korea allow nuclear inspectors back into the country amid reactor activity concerns. China is to reportedly resume the purchase of Iranian oil in November after their waiver.
Expected data include PMIs. No major companies are scheduled to report earnings.
Market Snapshot
Top Overnight News from Bloomberg
Asian stocks traded mostly lower with sentiment in the region subdued by trade concerns and holiday-thinned conditions in the US, while Japan and India also observed public holidays. ASX 200 (+0.4%) was positive with the index supported by strength in its top-weighted financials sector amid gains in Australia’s largest banks after Macquarie pulled-off a rarity at the banking royal commission in which it emerged unscathed and with its reputation enhanced. Elsewhere, Shanghai Comp. (-2.5%) and Hang Seng (-0.4%) were negative amid ongoing trade uncertainty as China responded to the recent trade report by the US, in which it dismissed the accusations of unfair trade practices as groundless and totally unacceptable. In addition, the US called for its allies to stop using Huawei equipment and weak earnings results from Meituan Dianping in which the online service provider’s losses ballooned, further added to the glum. China responded to the recent US report in which it labelled the accusation by the US of China continuing with unfair trade practices as groundless and totally unacceptable, while it added that it hopes US drops rhetoric and behaviour that are damaging to relations.
Top Asian News - China’s Capital Controls Keep a Bad Year From Getting Worse - The World’s Best and Worst Markets Are Both in China This Year - China Railway Unit Said to Be Planning 30 Billion Yuan IPO - Apple to Offer Japan Carriers Subsidy to Up iPhone XR Sales: WSJ
After opening with little in the way of firm direction amid holiday thinned markets (US, Japan and India), European equities have posted modest gains with the EuroStoxx 50 higher by 0.2%. Leading the charge in Europe is the FTSE MIB (+0.6%) with Italian assets underpinned by optimism that the populist government could reign in some of their budgetary demands with reports suggesting that the EU Affairs Minister Savona could step down from his position (later denied) due to dissent over Italy’s intentions to violate EU budget laws. This also comes amidst a backdrop of increasing pressure from President Mattarella who wants the technocratic PM Conte to get a deal done with the EC, whilst other Italian press report highlight the need for Italy to increase the sincerity of Italy’s concessions to Europe. In terms of sector specifics, upside in Italian banking names has helped spur gains in European financials with the telecoms sector outperforming. To the downside, energy names lag, in-fitting with price action in the complex with crude seemingly unable to stem recent losses. Individual movers include Renault (+4.2%), who have been granted some reprieve from recent losses following a broker upgrade at Jefferies and as Nissan continue to reorganise their corporate leadership. Elsewhere, GEA Group (-14.3%) are lower after cutting guidance whilst Altice (-9.8%) continue to face selling pressure following yesterday’s disappointing market update
Top European News
In currencies, the Dollar has benefited from the aforementioned relative weakness elsewhere, and the index is holding nearer the upper end of 96.394-751 parameters as a result, and on course to end the holiday-shortened week with a net gain, albeit modest having traded up to 96.898 and down to 96.037 at the other extreme. the Euro was not the most discounted major currency on offer, but cut price in wake of considerably weaker than forecast preliminary PMIs from France, Germany and the Eurozone overall. The single currency is now under 1.1400 vs the Usd and has broken the 10DMA to the downside at 1.1356, with fibs now being eyed ahead of 1.1300, while pivoting 0.8850 against the Gbp even though Sterling is also suffering in sympathy and jittery on Brexit issues following initial euphoria due to the UK-EU Political Declaration. CAD/NZD/AUD - Also going relatively cheap and underperforming against their US peer, with the Loonie back below 1.3200 amidst an even steeper slide in crude prices ahead of Canadian CPI and retail sales data. Meanwhile, the Aud has retreated through 0.7250 again and hardly helped by overnight developments as ANZ revised its RBA outlook to unchanged until August 2020, and the ASIC launched a probe of CBA for the alleged mis-selling of insurance products. Similarly, the Kiwi has lost grip of 0.6800 amidst speculation that the RBNZ could loosen mortgage restrictions as part of its FSR due next week. GBP - As noted above, the Pound has lost a bit more positivity after Thursday’s rally on the draft PD reached by Brexit negotiators given a mixed reaction to the details in UK political circles and ongoing doubt about approval by EU leaders. Cable is back below 1.2850 vs circa 1.2900 at best yesterday, albeit ‘comfortably’ above the recent 1.2785 low with decent bids noted at 1.2800. EM - Some consolidation at the end of a solid week for the likes of the Zar and Try that have both made potentially significant breaks of key levels at 14.0000 and 5.3000 vs the Usd respectively due to a combination of bullish technical and fundamental factors, ie the SARB ¼ point hike yesterday.
In commodities, WTI (-4.3%) and Brent (-2.6%) are on track for their seventh weekly loss with WTI prices briefly breaching the USD 52.00/bbl level to the downside while Brent lingers just above USD 61/bbl. Some traders are citing the recent decline to technical factors, while Saudi Arabia signalled that its output may have reached a record high of above 10.7mln BPD, and the kingdom’s Energy Minister Al-Falih noted that demand for oil will be lower in January 2019 compared to December 2018. This comes amidst the backdrop of this week’s EIA data which showed that US production remained at a record high of 11.7mln barrels, the most since at least 1983; according to government data. Therefore, the complex is suffering from a double whammy with supply glut concerns and weaker demand concerns weighing on traders’ minds. Oil fell into bear market territory this month after the US granted temporary waivers to eight countries in regard to Iranian oil, in turn pouring cold water on some supply concerns, while sources emerged this morning noting that China are to resume the purchase of Iranian oil in November after their waiver. Some analysts highlighted that due to complications over insurance, shipping and payments, it may take until February or later until some of Iran’s largest buyers such as South Korean and Japan resume purchases.
Elsewhere, gold (-0.4%) prices saw some downside after the yellow metal felt pressure from the firmer USD and copper weakened amid underperformance in China alongside a decline in Chinese commodity prices. Furthermore, China’s Dalian Exchange are to relax their risk management restrictions on some futures in an attempt to attract more investors to boost liquidity given the recent slump in iron ore prices.

The miners in the mainland China have run away. Is this the historical inevitability?

The miners in the mainland China have run away. Is this the historical inevitability?

From the deep mountains of Sichuan to the electronic market of Shenzhen Huaqiang North, the Bitcoin mining industry is experiencing a fierce “Battle Royale”.
The small mine owner decided to sell the mine and return to the city to live a normal life.
In the past, the mining machine stalls were very busy in the electronics market, and now the door is deserted.
Those who do the infrastructure business of the mines are beginning to miss the era of never-ending prices.
But that era seems to be drifting away. It is a cold reality to greet them - winter, really come.
Some practitioners believe that in the face of the cold winter, small and medium-sized miners will be out before the end of this year, and the future is the world of giants.
In other words, the mining industry is about to usher in an era when capital is king.

01 Winter is coming
"I am going to sell two mines." Luo Jun told a blockchain reporter.
In the deep mountains of Dalian Liangshan, he has three mines. They are small in size and add up to tens of thousands of machines, most of which are customer-hosted.
"Two mines, excluding machines, I quoted 600,000, and some customers said 400,000, I did not sell." Luo Jun said, "the cost is still 460,000."
After two years in the mountains, he earned a sum of money. Next, he plans to change the industry and live a normal life.
The direct cause of his change is the coming of the blockchain winter.
He found that the business of the mine this year was much harder than last year. "The gross profit margin has dropped by 40%~50%, and the net profit has dropped by 30%. And the return cycle is getting longer and longer, and the risk is getting higher and higher."
In the past, he experienced two moments of special fear, one was “9·4”, and the other was after the rumors of the government’s investigation of the mine. At that time, he couldn't sleep for almost all night, and he was anxious.
But at that time, the income was still considerable, and he did not give up. Now, he can't keep going.
"The mining site was originally a high-risk and high-yield coexistence. Now that high-yield is gone, there is only a high risk." Luo Jun said.
In addition to these, there are still many reasons for his determination to change careers.
One of them is the issue of life safety - working in the mountains, going out for a dozen hours to drive a car, but also mud roads. Only this summer, he encountered three landslides.
"I am afraid that I will die on the road one day." Luo Jun said.

The local law and order problem also made him feel insecure. There have been many incidents of theft of mining machines around him.
Another reason for him to change career is family and girlfriend.
When he first started mining, he was strongly opposed by his family. Parents told him: "No money, Bitcoin is a pyramid scheme."
Some irony is, "I later made money, they will not oppose it." Luo Jun said. But away from parents, he will often worry about their bodies.
Because of the mine, the girlfriend broke up with him.
"She feels that I am not reliable, or that she does not understand this industry." Luo Jun told a blockchain reporter.
After the mine is opened, he either chats with the customer every day, or goes to the mountains to handle the affairs. Most of the time he is on the phone or driving, and rarely spends time with her.
"I don't know how to communicate with her, I can only tell her that this thing makes money, but let me speak very thoroughly, I can't do it." Luo Jun said.
What to do after the transfer, Luo Jun is still considering. He wants to open a chain supermarket or a hotel in Chengdu. Leaving the wilderness and returning to the crowd will give him peace of mind.
In Shenzhen Huaqiang North, which is more than 1,700 kilometers away from Liangshan, the merchants selling mineral machines are also undergoing a major evacuation.
Bitcoin skyrocketed in 2017, and the mining business of Huaqiang North has also become popular. One of the most famous electronic markets is SEG, which is known as "the world's largest distribution center for mining machines." Here, many mining companies have opened an image store, and there is a saying in the industry: "Buy a mining machine, go to SEG."
“At the most, there are more than 180 counters selling petrol machines here.” Xiao Wu told a blockchain reporter.
She went to work here and witnessed the closure of a home mining machine sales stall and the market's dying.
"Now the stalls of SEG's selling miners are no longer, very deserted." Xiao Wu said that especially in the past few months, many small mining machine sellers could not hold back and gradually withdrew.
The fate of the Huaqiang North mining machine market is the epitome of the entire mining industry.
Over the years, the digital currency circle has formed an industrial chain. It is complete and precise, and it has almost everything. In a sense, every ring on the chain is glory and loses.
As of November 2, 2018, the total market value of global digital currencies was $20.56 billion, which was 75.2% lower than the highest point at the beginning of the year. Under the nest, there is an egg.
Now, Chen Xiaowu’s days are not good. What he did was the infrastructure business of the mine.
The capital cost of the mine is calculated according to the number of aircraft, and the construction cost of one aircraft is 500 yuan. “In the past, customers came to us to find us. Now we have to go to the customer ourselves.” He said.
He feels that Bitcoin's market determines everything. Now Bitcoin is only over $6,400, which is more than 60% from the peak of $20,000 last year.
“The miners of the miners really came, especially those small and medium miners,” he said.

02 Small and medium-sized mine owners can't escape
"The exit of small and medium-sized mine owners is a historical necessity." Well-known miner Wu, a well-known miner in the circle, told a blockchain reporter. "This step will basically be completed before the end of this year."
In Lao Wu's view, small mines with thousands and tens of thousands of machines can't escape the fate of being out.
“The big miners who survive will put the computing power up and the whole market will further shuffle.” Lao Wu said, “Digging the mining industry will enter a giant era in which capital is king.”
Several major mining machine suppliers around him are considering using the cost advantage of mining machines to switch to mining. In order to compete with the big mines behind these miner suppliers, small mines must follow the lifting power and iterate the machine.
"Because the core business model of mining is the cost of purchasing electricity and unit computing power," said Wu.
If the iterative mining machine is not updated, the unit's electricity bill has exceeded the value of the bitcoin that was dug, and is destined to lose money.

Take a mine with 10,000 machines as an example. An S9 mining machine should use 40 kWh a day. If the price of electricity is 0.4 yuan, it is 16 yuan. The electricity bill for 10,000 machines is 160,000 yuan a day, and 4.8 million yuan a month is calculated at the current bitcoin price. This is equivalent to nearly 110 bitcoins.
And this 10,000 machines can only dig more than 130 bitcoins a month. Deducting the operating costs of the mine, even the money to buy the machine can not earn back.
Lao Wu said that there have been some cases where personal funds alone, or mines invested by an institution alone can not continue.
Only by holding enough funds can you spend this winter. The era of giants is coming soon.
At very moments, the behavior patterns of many mines are changing.
In the past, many mines would have to pay for coins. The miners would rather save money and have more debts. They must also keep their bitcoins in their hands, and one would not be willing to sell them.
But now, many mines are selling coins. Because no one knows whether the price of coins will continue to fall all the way.
During the winter season, the price war between various mines has also become more intense.
"The price of electricity has been getting lower and lower recently. It used to be more than 4 hairs. Now there are 3 hairs and 6s." Miner Wu Di told a blockchain reporter that the mining machine hosting is a red sea.
Mines in different regions and different scales have different electricity prices. Once the price war starts, the profit margin is bound to be further compressed, and the mines with high prices will be the first to go out.
If the mine wants to survive, it will not only need sufficient funds, but also a firm belief.

03 Tokenization of computing power
Lao Wu believes that in the future, only three types of mines can survive.
The first type is backed by mining machine manufacturers, such as Bitland. In the bear market, they can get the mining machine at the lowest cost, and the advantage is unique.
In the second category, the gold master is gray funds.
"Gray funds refer to funds that want to leave the country. If the money does not go out, some people will choose to go out through mining." Lao Wu said.
These funds are often not worth the rate of return. In the bear market, the fund side would rather lose some money; when the bull market is in place, it may still earn several times.

"If you say that the static income you measured is a 10-month return, after this period of time, even if you can't return all of them, at least the funds are going out." Lao Wu told a blockchain reporter.
The third category is the mine that uses the innovative model to mine.
Traditional mining requires individuals to purchase mining machines, find cheap electric power locations, and build mines; or hand over mining machines to small and medium-sized mines for custody, users pay for electricity, maintenance and subsequent management fees.
The emerging mine of Laowu is already adopting the cloud mining model of computing lease. Users no longer have to consider the price of electricity, the site selection of the mine, etc., through the APP, you can directly rent the bitcoin mining machine computing power.
“We have 14 large mines around the world, and the degree of cost control of power and mining machines, as well as the scale and standardization of mines, are very high,” said Wu.
In this mode, the coin that is dug is divided equally between the user and the mine. The user's mining revenue is directly distributed to the individual account and is free to withdraw.
In addition to the rental power, his mine also issued a calculation currency, the public chain is tied with bitcoin computing power.
"Equivalent to the tokenization of the computing power, and the platform currency model has similarities." Lao Wu said.
He believes that in this way, the mine will digitalize its own assets and solve the liquidity problem of the computing assets in the secondary market.
“The true test of us is the ability to scale and cost control,” he said.
The hustle and bustle of the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States gradually became silent.
After this round of reshuffle, the world of blockchain will surely usher in an era of more concentrated bitcoin computing power.
It now appears that the decentralized world will increasingly resemble a utopia that is difficult to achieve.
The general trend of the world, the long-term must be combined, the long-term must be divided. Will the world of blockchain be the same?
