22 Thoughts to “South Korea Cryptocurrency Jung Ki-joon Regulator Found Dead | CNBC”

  1. Lol cnbc wants to take a profit and buy the dip again ….go fud machine

  2. IGNORE THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA FUD.. Question: When all you CNBC and msm news people get together, do you collaborate to create a plan to create this stupid FUD or does your boss make you spin this crap? Also STFU blondie

  3. Whats wrong with his right eye….

  4. Once again, the actual language and info given by CNBC is fake news crap.

  5. If you didn't need another reason for not being a presenter on CNBC it's that you'll be seen as a lying bullshitter peddling propaganda in fake news.

  6. Yeah, I wouldn't want something people are willing to die for. Give me something nobody wants. Now that's CNBC money.

  7. bb

    Lovely newsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

  8. Sound like fake news to me. CNBC should hire better scriptwriters and better actors to parrot their corporate masters' narrative.

  9. This guy clearly doesnt know what he is talking about, same with most "hosts" on cnbc, fyi it is easy to track the flow of your transfers. There's clearly a strange sentiment on mass "media" who seem to not know what they are talking about and spreading news about it being untraceable and how it is used for illegal reasons, i would say look at the US dollar that is very hard to track and as bitcoin etc transfers are on the blockchain it is clearly traceable for anyone with the right tech – hence how so many busts have been traced back – CNBC and other so called "media" pls get your facts right and pls have people on the show who actually know a thing or 2 about crypto…

  10. This man's left eye is tripping me out….WHAT IS GOING ON???

  11. Wow, this is the first you have heard of this? You mean this is how you scare people from using this. Thx for showing your bank support. They know you are good puppets now.

  12. I worked at Walmart part time for 6 months and it was one of the worst experiences I every had in my 30 years of working. I didn't really know how they could make money when you had 50% chiefs and 50% workers. That is a loser under any system!

  13. As if people are'nt currently being held ransom for fiat or other wealth??

  14. Wow … those banksters must be paying A LOT of money for this kind of anti-crypto lies and brainless argumented "news".
    Economy run by banks is melting down and they are trying to instill fear into everybody that doesn't have money in stock market run (manipulated) by them.
    Talking about communist propaganda, while you have your own little Kim Jong Tramp in your own backyard 😀
    Everybody that tells you it's safe to trust your money into stock market and banks is lying to you, people.

  15. Was probably Cryptonick, I hear he's a pretty dangerous guy..

  16. Good for bitcoin I don’t think next guy will be brave enough to be against bitcoin

  17. Don’t worry CNBC if you don’t want your Bitcoin I will take it after all you bash it all the tine

  18. altcoins is where the real money at :}

  19. Hypothetically, if Jung Ki-joon were murdered in a targeted homicide, and it were transacted with anonymous Bitcoin, wouldn't that represent further rationale for a worldwide ban on cryptocurrencies? The U.S. and our 50+ allies have the ability to permanently shut down cryptocurrencies for their Ponzi-esque structure, lack of regulatory oversight and use as instruments of illicit money laundering. Could the targeted extortionist violence be traced back to the Ponzi structure of Bitcoin, which lost more money in a single day than the entire house of cards Madoff Ponzi-scheme? Could cryptocurrencies be pursued as primary money laundering concerns as defined by the U.S.A. Patriot Act? This may not be of importance, but where did Jung Ki-joon eat lunch the day before he was found dead?

  20. good, let this be a message to the elite that we the people will not tolerate government and corporate meddling in the progress of humanity.

  21. It is important to emphasize that the Reserve Bank of India has moved to ban Bitcoin nationwide. Would it be advantageous to consider legally defining anonymous crypto-currency transactions as being invalid, unless and until the anonymous parties come forward to either claim the funds or complete the transaction? Otherwise, it would seem that the burden of proof of illicit money laundering would lie with the state, and due to anonymity, there would be a paucity of data from which to conduct a thorough investigation. Therefore, by making anonymous crypto-currency transactions legally invalid unless and until the minimal amount of financial data is disclosed, it might then protect legitimate retail investors from criminal prosecution, while closing the flood gates of illicit money laundering.
