Elizabeth Ploshay Of The Bitcoin Foundation: "We Cannot And Should Not Compromise"
Decentralization is one of the key characteristics that makes Bitcoin so attractive, but the need for governments to regulate it, the normal dynamics of market forces in the mining sector, and even the protocol development process are all types of activities that tend to centralization. This issue is one of the top priorities for Elizabeth Ploshay, recently elected board member of the Bitcoin Foundation. With regards to the relationship with governments she stressed the need for communication and also education about Bitcoin for government officials, but at the same time she is of the opinion that the community "cannot and should not compromise" its distributed model of governance and development. In this interview we spoke about: - Her background and experience working in Congress. - What is the mission of the Bitcoin Foundation? - What is the reach and who does the foundation represent? - How do they balance the tension between decentralization and centralization? - What is "organized decentralization"? - How are relations with Government?

Silicon Beach Interview - What is a Bitcoin, How do they work, and using GoCoin Merchant Accounts
GoCoin CEO Steve Beauregard discusses what exactly are Bitcoins and how the GoCoin payment gateway can help merchants accept Bitcoin and Litecoin payments, while getting paid in USD, EUR, or other currencies. Partial Transcript: Jude Belanger: Hi and welcome to Silicon Beach, today we're going to talk about Bitcoin. Bitcoin has been getting a lot of attention lately, they are being looked at by the Senate for regulation, and they're also being watched by Wall Street, so there's a lot of interest in it. It's volatile a little bit, the numbers go up and down so you can play with the global currency and you're not exactly sure where the numbers end up. I'm here with Steve Beauregard the founder and CEO of GoCoin, here on Silicon Beach. So Steve, tell me a little bit about Bitcoin, what you know of it and how you got into this. Steve Beauregard: Sure! So, first of all, the way you think about Bitcoin is digital cash, so it's the cash of the internet. The interesting thing about it is that it has a lot of the principles of cash, but it also trades a lot like a commodity, like gold, so in many ways it's gonna follow the markets of a commodity, however it does trade like a currency as well. JB: It's global, so you can buy something in Italy, with Bitcoin online? SB: That's correct. You can send wallet to wallet payment anywhere you want. You and I can take our wallets out, our mobile phones and send Bitcoin to one another, or you can be around the world and I can do it just as easily, frictionless. JB: Of the population in the world, how many people are using Bitcoin? SB: It's still miniscule. I mean the entire distribution of Bitcoin right now is about 11.5 million Bitcoin, and the market cap would be, if you spoke in those terms about 1.5 billion dollars. JB: Now there's a lot of negative press on this. That drug dealers are using this, that you could lose your money in it, the bubble could burst. It seems to be something that is sensationally tapping the headlines. However, that may not necessarily be exactly true. SB: Yeah, people like to sell newspapers and love to tell stories, and the scarier it is, the more people read it. You talk about the percentage of people using cash for those kinds of transactions, and it's much higher than with Bitcoin. So actually, by way of a percentage it's much smaller, because it's a public ledger. Everything, every transaction is public, although people say it's anonymous, and sure it's a little bit difficult right now to trace back to an individual, but at some point it's going to be easier and easier to trace that back. JB: I mean if you're using cash, what's the difference? That's still anonymous as well. SB: Right, it's just hard for you to physically get your cash from here to Brazil, or to Argentina, or to wherever you wanna get it, whereas you can instantly do that with digital cash. JB: So what's the process? I go online, I take my money, I go to a coin bank, a Bitcoin bank, I just trade in my money? SB: Yeah, you have two choices. First of all, you can get a wallet that you store on your own computer, or you can get a hosted wallet with one of the providers, and there's a number of them doing a really nice job. No, if you store it on your own computer, you better safeguard it because it's just like your wallet. If somebody hacks into your computer and hacks your Bitcoin wallet, guess what? They're gone, just like if you leave your wallet on the desk and someone picks it up and walks away, it's gone. JB: And where does this money come from? The Bitcoin, where does it come from? SB: So there's a series of mining operations that go on, and anybody can run a mining operation. It's really a matter of getting a computer. It's getting more and more specialized now, used to be you could get a high-end graphics card and download the open source mining software and "boom", you're running a miner. Now, what a miner does, is it's the mint, so as it validates transactions or a series of transactions, it goes through a little proof of work that it has to, to show that it is done in order to mine new Bitcoins. It's almost like a reward, almost like a lottery system. Once one computer comes up with the right answer before the others, it submits it, gets approved and the whole organization says "add that in Blockchain, we all agree, and here's your 25 Bitcoin". That's how Bitcoin comes into circulation. JB: So there are groups of people out there, like, you take a bank, a big, tall storey building. It's got many, many computers and those are all processing. This basically takes all those computers, chops them up and puts them into the general population with people that want to become miners, right? And these are the people that form this network? SB: Right, and it's all a peer-to-peer network. So think of it like BitTorrent, or any of these peer-to-peer networks where once those miners are out there and in operation..

Does Bitcoin Make Sense for Your Organization?
Digital "cryptocurrencies" like Bitcoin are helping some organizations raise tens of thousands of dollars. Advocates argue that such currencies are especially valuable to nonprofits because overhead costs can be lower than with credit cards and international money transfer fees.

In this section of the documentary we introduce a broad selection of merchants to give you a sense of how diverse the businesses that cryptocurrency are. We ask them why they accept Bitcoin. Jenny, from Vera Chan was the first physical business to accept bitcoin in Melbourne. In January 2015 we'll be releasing the full interviews from this first episode. There she explains how and why VeraChan began from her online game character. Gary Pasfield from The Old Fitzroy in Wooloomooloo Sydney – the first business in Australia to accept Bitcoin. He shares about how easy it is to use the cryptocurrency, the attention he's been given by media, and, his experience of credit card fraud. Amir is a master of degustation, each season he challenges the Owl House's chef 3 to make three meals to compliment his cocktails, and the chef gives Amir 3 meals to explore drinks that enhance the flavour of each dish. David Brim at TomCar still hasn't sold a car for bitcoin – we're keen to see if the documentary can prompt a Christmas sale! Alan Cartmell has a unique store in StKilda which stocks an eclectic taste of all things mostly South American. International remittance is one of the key reasons cryptocurrencies are proving popular, this is business and each % counts. One of the Black Star pastry shops in Sydney has a Lamassu machine, Chris explains why he started accepting bitcoin. Rob Wilson (BitScan) and Adam (PolyEster books) talk about liquidity and the housing crisis to close this section.

Should The Bitcoin Block Chain Be Regulated? Juan Llanos Talks About Bitcoin Compliance In The US
Just as I realize that Bitcoin is such a world changing technology, government agencies and regulators are also realizing how risky it may be. It's not about government obstructionism, it's about money laundering, terrorism financing, and the integrity of the financial system. These issues are top priority in Congress and the Executive and we just have to live with it. Juan Llanos is member of the Regulatory Affairs Committee of the Bitcoin Foundation and a veteran anti money laundering expert. In this interview he opened my eyes as to what are all the risks involved in starting a Bitcoin or digital currency business. Yes, FinCen has laid out guidelines in March of this year, but the issues are more profound and more government agencies, federal and state, are looking at crypto-currencies and analyzing their nature to decide whether to establish more controls or not. My personal opinion is that FinCen settled the "money transmitting" and "exchange from digital to fiat" issues, but the other questions are: Is Bitcoin a security? Where are bitcoins deposited? Is the block chain the "bank"? Should the block chain itself be regulated just as financial institutions are?. Of course the best scenario would be to regulate the layer of the services operating on top of the Bitcoin network instead of Bitcoin itself, but the issues are still open and thus so are the risks. Please watch my interview with Juan Llanos:

6/13/14 - US Govt auction Silk Road bitcoin, DuckDuckGo shows any balance, & Russia dumps the dollar
http://moneyandtech.com/June-13-news-update/ The price of Bitcoin fell below the $600 dollar mark Thursday as word spread about the US Marshal Service's plan to auction off the 30,000 unclaimed bitcoins (worth roughly $18 million dollars) that the FBI confiscated from anonymous online black market the Silk Road last October. The auction is expected to take place on June 27th for any investors willing to commit a $200,000 dollar deposit to participate. It will remain to be seen what longer term effects this large sell-off will have on the Bitcoin price. Bitcoin services provider Coinbase is now offering its merchant partners a new option to offer discounts of up to 25% to their customers who pay with Bitcoin. BloomNation and BitDazzle are already planning to offer a 10% discount, while eGifter will tender an additional 3% off on top of the 3% reward points they already offer on bitcoin payments. In their blog announcement, Coinbase explains that "Bitcoin significantly reduces transaction fees and costs associated with fraud and chargebacks. And now, merchants can share these savings with consumers." Bitcoin Magazine's communications director Elizabeth Ploshay is leaving the publication to join BitPay's account management team. Ploshay's new role will involve increasing awareness and enrollment of more charitable organizations and political campaigns with the BitPay platform, which offers its services free for non-profits to accept donations in Bitcoin. Search engine DuckDuckGo now offers the ability to allow users to check the balance of a specific bitcoin address right from its website. Users can simply type in any bitcoin wallet address, and the search engine will pull up the current balance for that address with the help of the blockchain API from Chain.com. And new cryptocurrency website CoinGecko offers the ability to track and rank Bitcoin and over 50 top alt coins by price, liquidity and even its popularity based on the activity levels on social media. As the company puts it, "With hundreds of cryptocurrencies already out in the market and dozens more created each month, we at CoinGecko feel that it is really difficult to decide which altcoin to hold and invest in... With CoinGecko now, we get to see all these metrics for various coins in one page." The Russian government is finally making good on its threats to distance itself from the US dollar. Russia-based Gazprom Neft, one of the world's largest natural gas producers, has signed agreements with 9 of their 10 biggest customers to switch their contract payments from U.S. dollars to euros. The Russian government holds a majority stake in the powerful oil producer, which makes up 8% of Russian GDP. Meanwhile, Russian citizens have also been dumping dollars, reducing their deposits in US banks by upwards of 40% in the past few months. All of these factors combined could trigger a considerable impact on the value of the US dollar. And in New York, private Christian liberal arts college The King's College is now accepting bitcoin for tuition and other expenses through a new partnership with Coin.co. President Dr. Gregory Thornbury says the university's values align closely with disruptive technologies like the digital currency, telling CoinDesk, "We have a strong emphasis on the founding documents of the US, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, which are very individual based. Bitcoin represents that, it's the empowerment of individuals." http://moneyandtech.com/June-13-news-update/

BitInstant CEO Charlie Shrem Arrested!
Charlie Shrem, the CEO of the Bitcoin-based company BitInstant, was arrested at JFK Airport today upon arriving home from the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami. According to the federal criminal complaint, Shrem is charged with "one count operating an unlicensed money transmitting business, one count of money laundering conspiracy and one count willful failure to file suspicious activity report." According to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara: "As alleged, Robert Faiella and Charlie Shrem schemed to sell over $1 million in Bitcoins to criminals bent on trafficking narcotics on the dark web drug site, Silk Road. Truly innovative business models don't need to resort to old-fashioned law-breaking, and when Bitcoins, like any traditional currency, are laundered and used to fuel criminal activity, law enforcement has no choice but to act. We will aggressively pursue those who would coopt new forms of currency for illicit purposes." Is this the beginning of a bitcoin man-hunt? Are government agents seeking to use force, surprise arrests, and threats of furter intimidation to stifle growth and innovation in bitcoin? Share your thoughts in the comments section below. I will update this story as it develops. http://peacenewsnow.com/breaking-bitinstant-ceo-charlie-shrem-arrested/

A Bit of Change: The Rise of Bitcoin
Imagine a currency accepted anywhere in the world, and is not regulated by the government. What would it look like? Who would create it? Well, it already exists, and has for quite a few years. Now it's rising in popularity, but it's also raising questions about its staying power.Think about a dollar bill. It's basically just cotton and linen in the shape of a rectangle. It's not backed by gold anymore. It's only backed by faith and trust. It's like a bitcoin. Only a bitcoin, you can't touch and it's not regulated by anyone.There's a big movement among young people who want to feel their money is safe, says Matt Brock, who is one of those young people. Brock is the founder of NovaWhite an internet-based retailer that sells teeth-whitening supplies and accept bitcoin as a form of payment. So you don't have to worry about the volatility of governments or any instability that causes fluctuations in currencies to rise and fall, so from that perspective it's safe, says Brock.The dollar, the yen, the euro.. they all started somewhere. They have value because society believes they do. Well society is starting to believe in a new currency: the bitcoin. Developed by an anonymous programmer or programmers in 2009. Back then, it was only worth a few cents.Today, one Bitcoin is worth roughly $800, 590 euros, 82,000 yen.So, how do you get one? Meet Matt Joseph. He's an engineer by day, bitcoin miner by night.The more I learned about it, the more interested I became, says Matt Joseph. To get a bitcoin, you have to contact someone like Matt, a miner.Just like a worker mines for gold, he mines for numbers. Like a gold miner uses a pick, Matt uses his computer. The computer's software works hard, figuring out long equations. After a few thousand correct answers, the miner is rewarded with part of a bitcoin. Every about 10 minutes computers on the network verify a block of transactions, and these blocks of transactions are encrypted, so that's why it takes a powerful computer to solve them, says Joseph.A couple of software programs later, the bitcoin is officially in Matt's digital wallet. Yes, there's an app for that. When you call Matt to buy a bitcoin, you'll pay him roughly $800, and he'll transfer the bitcoin from his personal wallet's address to yours. Matt keeps the money, but says he doesn't make much since he puts it into the upkeep of his computer.Now that you have a bitcoin, where can you use it? Right now, mostly online. But only at a few places in Chattanooga, like NovaWhite.But what if the bitcoin fails? That means there's no government bailout or promise you'll get your money back. These guys though, don't seem too worried.Either way, whether it fails or it's the next revolution, I think it's good to be a part of it, says Brock.So maybe it's true: a bit of change could do you good.A bitcoin is divisible down to 8 decimals points, so you can send fractions of a cent or millions of dollars instantly. Now again, this currency isn't tangible. Those shiny coins you've seen are simply a representation.Right now there's about 12-million bitcoins in existence. The maximum that will be generated is 21-million.By the way, a hearing on Monday between the founder of Bitcoin Investment Trust and New York's top banking regulator is furthering the idea that bitcoins will be regulated very soon.By Natalie Jenereski

6/17/14 - BitPagos gets a Boost, Singapore gets ACCESS & Bloomberg adds Winkdex
http://moneyandtech.com/June-17-news-update/ Bitcoin merchant processing service BitPagos announced a successful seed funding raise of $600,000 dollars today, from investors including Pantera Capital, venture capitalist Tim Draper, SecondMarket CEO Barry Silbert and the Boost Bitcoin Fund. The company hopes to use this funding boost to expand its business in Argentina and across Latin America, where CEO Sebastian Serrano says there is opportunity to be "one of the few companies trying to do fiat-to-bitcoin payments, and... specialize in processing US dollar payments and paying in bitcoin... a currency that is more stable than the Argentinian peso." TigerDirect Canada also announced today that they have begun accepting Bitcoin payments, following the example of their US counterpart, which began accepting Bitcoin in January and has already made over $1 million US dollars worth of bitcoin sales. Now, Canadians can also make online purchases with bitcoin through BitPay for TigerDirect's over 300,000 products. Several Bitcoin businesses in Singapore have joined forces to form the Association of Crypto-Currency Enterprises and Startups, or ACCESS, which publicly launched on Monday. The Association includes Bitcoin exchanges, merchant transaction services, vending machines and miners, with a collective mission to "promote the development, dissemination and adoption of best-practices by Singaporean digital currency businesses and other industry participants, and to counter illegitimate use of the technology." Italy's first cryptocurrency consultancy agency, CoinCapital, has partnered with manufacturer Bit-Wallet to create a more compact, competitive two-way bitcoin ATM. The Bit-Wallet ATM weighs less than 45 pounds, offers internet connectivity, and can be programmed to accept any paper currency. Pre-orders are now available, which the company is prepared to ship anywhere in the world, provided there aren't any prohibitive local regulations. Australian bitcoin company DigitalBTC made history Sunday as the first cryptocurrency company to trade on a major stock exchange, as it was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange under the name Digital CC Limited. The company is confident that its new listing will help build trust in the community, and attract a wider range of more risk-averse investors, since the legal requirements for listing have made them "the most transparent bitcoin company around". And the Winklevoss' bitcoin price index, the 'WinkDex', has been added to Bloomberg under the ticker WINKBTCO, offering the community a "blended bitcoin price index", meaning that it calculates a volume-weighted moving average price based on the top three Bitcoin exchanges. This is an important step forward for the brothers, as they work towards the approval and launch of their bitcoin exchange-traded fund, the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust. Singapore-based Coin Congress will be coming to San Francisco for its first conference on July 23rd to ­24th. According to Coin Congress advisor and Bitcoin entrepreneur Brock Pierce, the event will bring "together the industry's top thought leaders to share their insights on the overall state of digital currencies, and provides attendees with actionable takeaways for their businesses." Meanwhile in Washington DC, the Bitcoin In The Beltway conference will take place this coming weekend on June 20th to 22nd. The conference is co-chaired by Sean's Outpost founder Jason King and the Bitcoin Foundation's Elizabeth Ploshay, who saw the need to bring the digital currency conversation right to the heart of government regulation. http://moneyandtech.com/June-17-news-update/

How Does Bitcoin Work? With Scott Driscoll Of Curious Inventor
This is Scott's "Bitcoin Under The Hood video": http://youtu.be/Lx9zgZCMqXE The simple explanation of what is Bitcoin is that it's money that you can send to other people on the internet. It is like sending an email, but instead it's a bitcoin. The problem is that of course this explanation is not enough for anybody to understand it! The structure of how it works and the different parts and components are so many and complicated that the story turns a little bit longer. Fortunately there are people like Scott Driscoll, founder of the successful YouTube channel Curious Inventor, that are trying to find ways of explaining Bitcoin in simpler ways. He created the best video that talks about how the digital currency works "under the hood". This is to say how the Bitcoin network and software work to create this secure and now so popular form of money. In this interview I ask Scott about: - His background and what is Curious Inventor. - Why he created the "Bitcoin Under The Hood Video". - How does the Bitcoin network work? I also asked him some details about the different parts and functionality of the software: - What is the ledger? - What is double spending? - What do they mean by mining? - The ledger is divided in blocks? What is the block chain?
