Chris Ellis (http://feathercoin.com), Kristov Atlas (http://anonymousbitcoinbook.com/), Davi Barker (http://shinybadges.com), Blake Anderson (https://www.facebook.com/GotBlake) and Thomas Hunt (http://madbitcoins.com). THIS WEEK: ---------------------------- Issue 1 -- New York unveils Bitcoin license rules -- As expected New York State is leading the way in Bitcoin Regulation, with the goal of creating an exchange where users could never lose their money except through trading fees and losses -- but at the same time not having the rules be "so burdensome or unwieldy that the technology can't develop." That last part is a direct quote from SuperNintendo Lawsky. Has the NYDFS done succeeded in their goals? http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/ny-proposes-regulations-companies-trading-bitcoin-article-1.1871278 http://money.cnn.com/2014/07/18/technology/bitcoin-license/ http://www.foxbusiness.com/industries/2014/07/17/ny-seeks-comments-on-bitcoin-regulatory-framework/ http://www.wired.com/2014/07/ny_bitcoin/ Issue 2 -- Bitcoin and Business -- Choose your own story -- Bitcoin Business is booming at Cheap Air where they've sold more than $1.5 Million dollars in flights, hotels and even train bookings at CheapAir.com http://www.coindesk.com/cheapair-tops-1-5-million-in-total-bitcoin-sales/ Not if, but when. Not now, but soon. The deck is stacked and e-commerce in general is preparing to go the full bitcoin with Japanese super giant Rakuten perhaps leading the way. http://cointelegraph.com/news/112076/japanese-e-commerce-giant-to-accept-bitcoin-sooner-or-later-ceo-says And in Lighter News, Bitcoin Search Result Fixing -- Did a mining company really buy Buttcoin.org to transform a negative article? Turn a piece of shit into a piece of sexy? http://techcrunch.com/2014/07/14/bitcoin-mining-company-buys-critical-site-to-improve-google-results/ Issue 3 -- Vericoin Hacked -- MintPal had too much Vericoin in their hot wallet and got hacked -- hard. The problem is, the exchange lost more than 30% of the available Vericoin on the market and Vericoin is proof of stake. There could now very easily be a 51% attack. It was then the devs decided to fork the blockchain to return the coins to MintPal. Did the Vericoin devs do the right thing? Is Vericoin decentralized? Is this idea coming to bitcoin soon? http://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-protected-vericoin-stolen-mintpal-wallet-breach/ Issue 4 -- And now Local Bitcoins -- which is pretty much illegal now in New York State -- oooo. low blow. In San Francisco -- Tatiana Moroz is having a Concert at the Bitcoin Meetup at 20 Mission http://www.meetup.com/San-Francisco-Bitcoin-Social/events/194278092/ In Chicago they're having the Bitcoin Chicago Convention and a Free Bitcoin Beginners Workshop both mornings! http://btcchicago.com/ and in Thailand -- Bitcoin Bangkok in meeting up Saturday July 19 at 3:00 PM http://www.meetup.com/Bangkok-Bitcoin-Meetups/ also in Cleveland the North American Bitcoin Car Giveaway! is in town July 19th and 20th!

The Secret Goldman Sachs Tapes http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2014-09-26/the-secret-goldman-sachs-tapes First, a bit of background -- which you might get equally well from today's broadcast as well as from this article by ProPublica. After the 2008 financial crisis, the New York Fed, now the chief U.S. bank regulator, commissioned a study of itself. This study, which the Fed also intended to keep to itself, set out to understand why the Fed hadn't spotted the insane and destructive behavior inside the big banks, and stopped it before it got out of control. The "discussion draft" of the Fed's internal study, led by a Columbia Business School professor and former banker named David Beim, was sent to the Fed on Aug. 18, 2009. It's an extraordinary document. There is not space here to do it justice, but the gist is this: The Fed failed to regulate the banks because it did not encourage its employees to ask questions, to speak their minds or to point out problems. Just the opposite: The Fed encourages its employees to keep their heads down, to obey their managers and to appease the banks. That is, bank regulators failed to do their jobs properly not because they lacked the tools but because they were discouraged from using them. The report quotes Fed employees saying things like, "until I know what my boss thinks I don't want to tell you," and "no one feels individually accountable for financial crisis mistakes because management is through consensus." Beim was himself surprised that what he thought was going to be an investigation of financial failure was actually a story of cultural failure.

The Future of Bitcoin: Price, Value, Mining, Exchange, Investment, Loans, Options (2013)
 
43:53
In 2013 some mainstream websites began accepting bitcoins. WordPress had started in November 2012, followed by OKCupid in April 2013, Atomic Mall in November 2013, TigerDirect and Overstock.com in January 2014, Expedia in June 2014, Newegg and Dell in July 2014, and Microsoft in December 2014. Certain non-profit or advocacy groups such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation accept bitcoin donations.[93] (The organization started accepting bitcoins in January 2011,[94] stopped accepting them in June 2011,[95] and began again in May 2013.[93]) In May 2013, the Department of Homeland Security seized assets belonging to the Mt. Gox exchange.[96] The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) shut down the Silk Road website in October 2013.[97] In October 2013, Chinese internet giant Baidu had allowed clients of website security services to pay with bitcoins.[98] During November 2013, the China-based bitcoin exchange BTC China overtook the Japan-based Mt. Gox and the Europe-based Bitstamp to become the largest bitcoin trading exchange by trade volume.[99] On 19 November 2013, the value of a bitcoin on the Mt. Gox exchange soared to a peak of US$900 after a United States Senate committee hearing was told by the FBI that virtual currencies are a legitimate financial service.[100] On the same day, one bitcoin traded for over RMB¥6780 (US$1,100) in China.[101] On 5 December 2013, the People's Bank of China prohibited Chinese financial institutions from using bitcoins.[102] After the announcement, the value of bitcoins dropped,[103] and Baidu no longer accepted bitcoins for certain services.[104] Buying real-world goods with any virtual currency has been illegal in China since at least 2009.[105] The first bitcoin ATM was installed in October 2013 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.[106] With about 12 million existing bitcoins in November 2013,[107] the new price increased the market cap for bitcoin to at least US$7.2 billion.[108] By 23 November 2013, the total market capitalization of bitcoin exceeded US$10 billion for the first time.[109] In the US two men were arrested in January 2014 on charges of money-laundering using bitcoins; one was Charlie Shrem, the head of now defunct bitcoin exchange BitInstant and a vice chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation. Shrem allegedly allowed the other arrested party to purchase large quantities of bitcoins for use on black-market websites.[110] In early February 2014, one of the largest bitcoin exchanges, Mt. Gox,[111] suspended withdrawals citing technical issues.[112] By the end of the month, Mt. Gox had filed for bankruptcy protection in Japan amid reports that 744,000 bitcoins had been stolen.[113] Originally a site for trading Magic: The Gathering cards,[114] Mt. Gox had once been the dominant bitcoin exchange but its popularity had waned as users experienced difficulties withdrawing funds.[115] On June 18, 2014, it was announced that bitcoin payment service provider BitPay would become the new sponsor of St. Petersburg Bowl under a two-year deal, renamed the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl. Bitcoin was to be accepted for ticket and concession sales at the game as part of the sponsorship, and the sponsorship itself was also paid for using bitcoin.[116] Less than one year after the collapse of Mt. Gox, Bitstamp announced that the exchange would be taken offline while they investigate a hack which resulted in about 19,000 bitcoins (equivalent to roughly US$5 million at that time) being stolen from their hot wallet.[117] The exchange remained offline for several days amid speculation that customers had lost their funds. Bitstamp resumed trading on January 9 after increasing security measures and ensuring customers that their account balances would not be impacted.[118] The bitcoin exchange service Coinbase launched the first regulated bitcoin exchange in 25 US states on January 26, 2015. At the time of the announcement, CEO Brian Armstrong stated that Coinbase intends to expand to thirty countries by the end of 2015.[119] A spokesperson for Benjamin M. Lawsky, the superintendent of New York state’s Department of Financial Services, stated that Coinbase is operating without a license in the state of New York. Lawsky is responsible for the development of the so-called 'BitLicense', which companies need to acquire in order to legally operate in New York. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

7/17/14 - New York's Bitcoin rules, World Bank calls it Ponzi, & Netherlands takes it seriously
 
05:23
http://moneyandtech.com/July-17-news-update/ The New York DFS has released its long-anticipated list of required BitLicense rules and regulations that apply to any New York-based bitcoin businesses transmitting; securing, storing, holding; or buying and selling Virtual Currency on behalf of others; converting or exchanging other value into Virtual Currency; or controlling, administering, or issuing a Virtual Currency. Though such cumbersome requirements could seem daunting to small bitcoin startups, New York Superintendent Ben Lawsky was careful to say, "We recognize that -- as the first state to put forward specially tailored rules for virtual currency firms -- continued public feedback will be an important part of finalizing this regulatory framework. We look forward to carefully and thoughtfully reviewing public comments on our proposal." The Netherlands' public criminal justice service Openbaar Ministerie has been granted the legal power to seize the contents of bitcoin wallets from suspected or convicted criminals, as well as sell those acquired bitcoins for fiat soon after they are confiscated. Yet despite the negative connotations of this development, the categorization of bitcoin as a seizable asset also indicates that the Dutch government and legal authorities may be starting to recognize the digital currency's validity. As Paul Buitink, owner of Dutch bitcoin information site deBitcoin.org, sees it, "In a way, it's positive because it's further legitimizing bitcoin as something that has value and is taken seriously." A new research report published by the World Bank entitled "Ponzis: The Science and Mystique of a Class of Financial Frauds" explores the way in which Bitcoin could be a victim of a natural Ponzi, as opposed to a deliberate Ponzi scheme. The report compares the Bitcoin bubble to similar bubbles such as the housing market and gold which have a tendency to grow based on individuals' speculations and then burst. As World Bank economist Kaushik Basu explains, "Trouble started when people began speculating that the value of bitcoin would rise, thereby raising the demand for bitcoin and making the value-rise a self-fulfilling prophesy. In other words, what we witnessed recently in the bitcoin phenomenon fits the standard definition of a speculative bubble." City officials in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania have confirmed the rumors that Bitcoin quote "was indeed mentioned in one of the transition reports written before [current Mayor William Peduto] took office," as part of a bid to make Pittsburgh the first municipality to accept bitcoin for payments on taxes, fines and fees. However, the same officials have also revealed that the city in fact has "no current plans to take the currency". That said, the city's finance director Paul Leger has hinted that bitcoin acceptance could happen eventually, saying "We would need to see a longer term proof of stability for digital currency to be good stewards of the public's funds." Leading South African payment processor PayFast began offering bitcoin as a payment option today for its 30,000 merchant customers, thanks to a new partnership with digital currency exchange BitX. PayFast founder and managing director Jonathan Smit is curious to see what results this experiment will yield, saying "We are not really seeing a demand for bitcoin from customers per se, but bitcoin is very much a hot topic on South African lips... Until now, bitcoin has only been accepted at a handful of online merchants in South Africa and we're very excited to see what effect this large scale enablement will have on the market." Online education platform provider Skilljar announced a partnership with Stripe's bitcoin beta program today, to offer bitcoin payments to its hundreds of instructors who offer a wide range of online classes from yoga to programming. As CEO and co-founder Sandi Lin says, "The decision to accept Bitcoin as a form of payment was simple... driven by instructor requests, ease of integration, and the international nature of our business" adding that, "Since we already use Stripe for payment processing, their beta program with Bitcoin made it easy to integrate while also leveraging our existing payments infrastructure." The Moving Picture Institute released a YouTube video spoof Tuesday of Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl", entitled "Bitcoin Girl," which aims to educate audiences about the benefits of digital currencies, and change the negative image portrayed by the mainstream media. The video's director and star, The Bitcoin Girl herself, Naomi Brockwell sees film as "the best way to educate Americans about this exciting innovation... Essentially, the more people learn about Bitcoin, the more they like it!"

The Cardboard Box Reform - Nixon's Ghost Bill & A Crucial Flaw in Democracy
 
01:02:38
James D'Angelo (Winner 2014 MIT Climate CoLab, ex-NASA scientist) uncovers a crucial flaw in American democracy. Incredibly, the solution – which lays at the heart of all current social concerns (inequality, the recession, political division, government disapproval, Citizens United, civil rights and corruption) – costs under 5 dollars. James presents a breathtaking new look at congressional transparency and the troubles it has wrought by opening the doors to special interests and the wealthy. So, welcome to the world of Martin Gilens' 2014 paper and flatline graph. Also welcome to the world created by electronic voting machines and the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 (passed on October 26, 1970). Unheard of in any current political discussion, this act of Congress has produced endless avenues for lucrative lobbying of special interest groups. UPDATE (2017) Since posting this video James has partnered with Harvard Professor of Congress David King and author Brent Ranalli to further investigate this problem of transparency. The results are even more striking and powerful than initially proposed in this video. You can follow their latest work, read their papers and see their latest talks here http://congressionalresearch.org/ Follow James on Twitter @JamesGDAngelo REFERENCES For much more on this topic see our website https://www.congressionalresearch.org Here are citations from over a hundred scholars who find similar problems with transparency http://congressionalresearch.org/Citations.html Here is a good first page for information on transparency http://congressionalresearch.org/SevenDeadlyMyths.html D'Angelo has found the most unusual (indeed counterintuitive) source for our current explosion in inequality and campaign financing in a place that most economists would't consider, the secret ballot. Considered by many to have crushed the first gilded age, the secret ballot was introduced en masse in the US starting in 1890. By 1940 it was everywhere (all citizens voted privately and most bills in congress were decided by teller or voice vote). And then for 30 years life was pretty good. Inequality was dropping, so were a number of other metrics, partisanship, campaign finance, national debt etc. And then, October 26th, 1970 there was a crack in our air-tight democracy - The Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 opened up the votes of Congress (the committee of the whole). Dubbed a ’sunshine law’, this bill has only ever been considered a good thing. The trouble is, we vote in secret for a reason. Reasons most Americans forget. Every time votes are public we get massive explosion in two types of electoral fraud. They first form of Electoral Fraud is Vote Buying (Tammany Hall, etc), with as much as 20% of the electorate being paid to vote a specific way (often poor individuals being paid with a chicken wing or a beer). The second form is Voter Intimidation, often times people would vote in the local court house, and they would just announce their vote to the local staff. The trouble with voting publicly (stating your votes to a clerk) is that often citizens were voting on deputies and sheriffs who were sitting right there in the court house, listening. It is hard to vote against an evil Sheriff if he can see how you vote. It is easy to see the problem there. Interestingly, this is exactly what now happens in our Congress. Inside of congress, Voter intimidation leads to massive partisanship and polarization, and the vote buying leads to what some congressmen call ‘legalized bribery’. The convictions, admissions and stories of this are common (Jack Abramoff, ABACAM, etc etc). And this change in 1970 has led to a feedback loop that responds to the ever increasing money in Washington. Indeed The Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 is the cause for the phenomenal growth of K-street. And all the big firms were born just months after it passed. The trouble is no one has ever called it what it is, Electoral Fraud. And the beauty is, all these alarming trends can be reversed by re-instating the secret ballot. Examples of Electoral Fraud in Congress: 1. Intimidation - John Boehner telling congressmen how to vote. Leads to massive partisanship. 2. Vote Buying - Abscam, Jack Abramoff and others, plus all the revolving door events 3. Logrolling - Congressmen trade votes (Tip O'Neill built Tufts into a major PRIVATE university by logrolling)

8/6/14 - Bitcoin Foundation gets clarity, UK Chancellor buys Bitcoin, & OKCoin goes for pros
 
05:48
http://moneyandtech.com/August-6-news-update/ The Bitcoin Foundation has joined the fight to extend the 45 day comment period for the BitLicense proposal released by the New York Department of Financial Services. An open letter penned by Global Policy Counsel Jim Harper on Tuesday requested that the NYDFS release some of the research and analysis conducted during its initial drafting, stating "The Bitcoin community has a lot to offer in comments on the proposed regulation, but it will not be able to comment cogently unless the benefits summarized here are actually articulated in a publicly released document." The Foundation followed up with a press release update on their website today confirming that the NYDFS had responded mere hours after the letter went out, and has promised to deliver all requested information to the Fouundation within 20 days. The press release also points out that, "If the agency takes the full 20 days to respond, the materials will be available just days before the close of the original comment period on the regulations, which was the minimum 45 days allowed by New York law. The NYDFS has signaled that it will extend the comment period on its sweeping, controversial draft digital currency regulation." U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne bought his first bitcoins today at the Innovate Finance event in London, giving an accompanying speech about his plans to examine the potential for digital currencies in the UK, in the hopes to make Britain the global center for financial innovation. As Osborne put it, “It’s only by harnessing innovations in finance, alongside our existing world class knowledge and skills in financial services, that we’ll ensure Britain’s financial sector continues to meet the diverse needs of businesses and consumers, here and around the globe, and create the jobs and growth we all want to see in the future.” Netagio CEO Simon Hamblin couldn't agree more, saying "Mr. Osborne's comments are very encouraging and we have long awaited some direction from the Government and Regulators. This is an exciting time to drive greater innovation in the financial services industry, for Bitcoin businesses, retail and institutional investors and merchants. The UK's offshore jurisdictions are already strong supporters of alternative currencies and by bringing together a common approach, this could position the UK as one of the leading centres for digital currency innovation." Electronic transaction processing provider Global Payments today announced a new referral partnership with bitcoin business solutions provider BitPay, agreeing to refer to BitPay any of their over 1 million merchants worldwide which are interested in accepting bitcoin payments. As marketing and communications senior VP Amy Corn explains, the main driver behind this decision was to “meet the cross-border demands of our global merchants by presenting a great opportunity for bitcoin acceptance, and allowing both companies to reach more customers in emerging markets.” Leading Chinese bitcoin exchange OKCoin has announced the addition of a new futures trading platform, offering its users the ability to hedge their risks by “locking in” future prices to buy their coins. This arrangement legally binds the two parties involved at this predetermined price between a given date, helping to reduce the risk of potentially high price volatility common in the Bitcoin market. The futures trading platform will remain in beta for two weeks before going full live, as the next step in OKCoin's long-term plan to add more professional features and attract more serious traders to its platform. Popular social networking site Reddit is looking to hire cryptocurrency engineers.
