Cryptocurrencies, Tulips, and Regulation?

By Evan Fowler Almost 400 years ago the Dutch were really excited about tulips. In a period of three years, a tulip bulb went from a reasonable value to as much as six times the average person’s annual salary. Today we look at Dutch people selling their homes to buy tulips as crazy (we literally call that bubble “Tulip Mania”). Yet, right now we are watching South Koreans sell their homes to buy a digital “currency” – Bitcoin. Everyone is talking about Bitcoin these days. “In terms of cryptocurrencies, generally, I can say with almost certainty that they will come to a bad ending,” Warren Buffet said during a Wednesday morning interview on CNBC’s “Squak Box.” Yet, Jamie Dimon, the JPMorgan Chase & Co.

#The3Llife New Year, New Semester, New Resolutions GUEST BLOG Katie R. Day, Quinnipiac University School of Law, J.D. Candidate 2018               Each semester brings new challenges and this one will be no different. As I write this I’m still in awe of the fact that this is my last semester of law school! While sitting in classes this past week I remembered a 3LLife blog I wrote at the start of the school year laying out my goals and resolutions for my 3L year (check it out here. I figured the start of a new semester would be a good time to look back, evaluate how I’ve been doing, and get a couple of new resolutions going! One of my resolutions for last semester was to only drink two cups of coffee I day. I’ll admit, I let this one go, but I’m back at it now. I’ve even added a couple of yoga classes per week to my schedule to help me get my energy up in a healthy way—and de-stress a bit too! I’ve…..

#The3Llife: The Holiday Waiting Game

#The3Llife The Holiday Waiting Game GUEST BLOG Katie R. Day, Quinnipiac University School of Law, J.D. Candidate 2018               If I’m being honest, I have to admit that I caught myself thinking about my grades on more than a few occasions. I don’t know about y’all, but Christmas break is my favorite time of year! It’s such a relief to relax after finals and spend some time with family and friends. But as much as I love munching on Christmas cookies, wrapping presents, and taking a mental vacation, one thing always creeps into the back of my mind. GRADES! As I write this, I’m still waiting on four grades. To say I’m anxious to get them back would be an understatement.

In past years I’ve spent my time obsessively hitting the refresh button on my phone, waiting for a grade to pop up,….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information...
