17:17:11 HighInBC: ahhh bcash, distracting people from Canada's funny coloured money by being a more ridiculous currency

19:03:14 HighInBC: that article is so BS, they can freeze your funds on the exchange, not your personal wallet

19:04:05 pankkake: which article?

19:06:04 HighInBC: it is pretty much like any other currency in that the exchange can freeze your local wallet with them, but not your private wallet

19:06:58 pankkake: they can freeze anything that isn't XRP, I would suppose?

19:07:15 HighInBC: exchanges can freeze any wallet they want, it is their wallets

19:07:48 HighInBC: headline "I you store you coins with someone else, they can control them"
