Has the proliferation of Bitcoin already reached the point of no return?

No One Needs A Bitcoin ETF & Bakkt, BTC Already IS MONEY!
-Bitcoin news, price, information & analysis Since Bitcoin (BTC) came into being, the asset? and blockchain network?s narrative has been misconstrued time and time again.

How to assemble an LTO network node and receive rewards
En este tutorial se explicarán los pasos a seguir para montar un nodo de LTO (Legal Things One) Network en un equipo Linux, en concreto para Ubuntu y derivados. Puesto que es un nodo que debería estar siempre encendido y aportando a la red, lo normal es que lo tengamos corriendo sobre un VPS (Virtual Private Server) que suele llevar un Linux, en lugar de en nuestro pc de sobremesa. Además, usando un VPS evitamos exponer la IP pública de nuestro router. Antes de comenzar con la guía, me gustaría explicar brevemente el propósito de un nodo de LTO Network: En LTO han diseñado un nuevo modelo de red llamado LPoI (Leased Proof of Importance), cogiendo ideas de LPoS (Leased Proof of Stake), en el que cuanto más grande sea el nodo, más recompensas obtiene, y del PoI (Proof of Importance), en el cual cuanto más uses la red, más incentivos consigues. El problema que había con estos dos modelos es que el primero tiende a la centralización de la red, como es el caso de NXT que lo implementa y su red la controla solo tres nodos,  mientras que el segundo, como es el caso de Waves o NEM, usa algoritmos excesivamente complejos.

However, with tightening Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations on both crypto exchanges and ATMs, it has become increasingly difficult to settle criminal proceeds using Bitcoin. A report from Bloomberg in late 2018 disclosed that relative to legal activity, the involvement of Bitcoin in criminal operations or money laundering has declined substantially.
