Sounds to me like a bunch of people that believe everything their favorite FOX or CNN propaganda tells them... Cryptocurrency is not some evil currency that only benefits criminals.... following that logic you could say them same about the US dollar considering criminal activity is in the tunes of 100's of billions of dollars every year. If anything that you think you know was true then all of the worlds largest banks and corporations would not be jumping on the blockchain bandwagon and currently investing 100's of billion into cryptocurrency. Here are the largest: https://entethalliance.org/ https://chain.com/ https://www.r3.com/ https://www.hyperledger.org/ Just google the press releases for any of these to see how wrong you are unless we call corporate america for what it is, a bunch of criminals then yes you would be right :) With that said I dont see BECU jumping on the bandwagon, in fact they would be pretty dumb to do so, the tech is easily hackable and not scalable at the current moment. More work needs to be done before it becomes a reliable platform. With that said BECU also blocks anyone in washington state from buying ETH, BTC, LTC.... Kind of pisses me off I would like the ability to invest my own money in these currencies that are being backed by all the major players before it goes mainstream and BECU thinks its their right to decide what we can invest our money in. I am here to ask that BECU stop blocking wire transfers and debit card purchases to the exchanges that are licensed to do business in Washington State like Gemini, Coinbase, CoinMama... they all have their licenses now let us invest or I will find another credit union.
