4/23/14 - Bitcoin into space, Atlas ATS pushes forward, & Dorian Nakamoto says thank you

Video: http://www.moneyandtech.com/apr23-news-update/
Here are today's top news stories in Money & Tech:
The blockchain is headed for space. Jeff Garzik’s Dunvegan Space Systems is partnering with Deep Space Industries to build satellites called ‘BitSats’ that will be launched into space as a backup bitcoin orbital system. From orbit, these BitSats will be able to broadcast out transaction data from the blockchain to any users with a downlink. Garzik made the first payment to Deep Space Industries via BitPay, where he is also a senior software developer, and is now accepting bitcoin donations to help complete the project.
Bitcoin trading platform Atlas ATS has formed a partnership with The National Stock Exchange to speed up regulatory approval. By partnering with this self-regulatory organization, Atlas ATS hopes to bypass FinCEN's money-transmitting license in favor of SEC-approved rules that are more tailored to digital currency exchanges. Kraken and CoinMKT are also taking this route, as several exchanges race to become the first fully regulated digital currency exchange.
Nine state banking officials from the US Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), including New York Superintendent Ben Lawsky, have launched the Emerging Payments Task Force. The new task force plans to investigate bitcoin and other virtual currencies in the hopes of developing state regulation best practices, as well as more educational resources. The discussion will begin with a public hearing on May 16th in Chicago.
With the reluctance of Irish banks to accept bitcoin, ATM provider BitVendo and safe deposit box facility Merrion Vaults have partnered to provide cold storage to BitVendo's local cryptocurrency users. The service allows users to store their bitcoins safely in Merrion Vaults' high quality and secure safe deposit vault in Dublin.
Butterfly Labs has been on rocky ground since this month's lawsuit against the bitcoin mining hardware company, accusing it of collecting payments for false orders and using customer equipment for their own mining. This recent lawsuit is only the latest accusation of fraud against the Kansas-based company. What's more, co-founder Sonny Vleisides has been found in violation of his probation since pleading guilty to one count of mail fraud in 2010, which will likely extend his probation another two years.
Dorian Nakamoto, the man famously falsely identified as bitcoin's creator, has filmed a YouTube video with Andreas Antonopoulos to thank the bitcoin community for its support. Antonopoulos led a fundraising campaign for Nakamoto that raised over 47 bitcoins - worth nearly $23,000 dollars - in a new bitcoin wallet that Nakamoto says he will keep open as a new bitcoin user. Watch that YouTube video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7YmJZ-qVW8.
Bitcoin documentary The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin premieres today at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City. Money & Tech will be attending the screening, as well as the film’s after-party hosted by Charlie Shrem. We will be bringing you video coverage and interviews from that event soon.
We will also be attending the next major digital currency event this Friday, Dogecon SF, which will be San Francisco's first dogecoin conference. The event is hosted by Follow The Coin, and will feature prominent industry speakers such as litecoin creator Charlie Lee, industry expert Andreas Antonopoulos, and of course, Dogecoin's own creator, Jackson Palmer. We sat down with Tina Hui and Matt Schlicht from Follow The Coin to talk about what we can look forward to at Dogecon SF. Find that interview here: http://moneyandtech.com/follow-the-coin-dogecon-sf/

4/17/14 Video News - Bitcoin.com, SecondMarket, Walmart, Ron Paul & Dogecon SF

Video: http://www.moneyandtech.com/apr17-news-update/
Catch up with today's top news stories in Money & Tech:
Blockchain.info announced today that it has struck a five year deal to exclusively manage the domain Bitcoin.com. The domain's sleek new homepage now features three main links for the Blockchain wallet service, Zeroblock news and charts, as well as a search function to explore the rest of Blockchain.info. As stated in their announcement, this is part of the mission quote "to create new learning experiences and introduce millions of users to Bitcoin."
SecondMarket has taken another step towards the ultimate launch of America’s first fully regulated Bitcoin Exchange, releasing a new website for their quote “Experienced, Full Service Bitcoin Trading Services”. CEO Barry Silbert says he hopes to launch the fully licensed exchange for all compliant users this summer.
Walmart has announced the April 24th launch of their new Walmart-2-Walmart Money Transfer Service, in partnership with global remittances company Ria, which could clarify their decision to cut ties with Gyft.com. The new low-cost service will allow customers to transfer money between the over 4,000 Walmart stores nationwide, and is aimed at helping the almost 28 percent of Americans who are either underbanked or unbanked and rely on money transfers.
ZaZZZ, billed as the first Marijuana vending machine in the US, will also be accepting bitcoin. Since the legalization of marijuana in 2012, Bitcoin has become popular among dispensary owners who have been rejected by traditional financial institutions. The ZaZZZ machine however is far from an anonymous way to buy the newly legal drug, as it is equiped with an ID reader, and a video camera.
Former Congressman Ron Paul took to popular question-and-answer website Quora to express his thoughts about bitcoin, saying "Though I don’t personally believe that Bitcoin is true money, it should be perfectly legal and there should be no restrictions on it... For this to operate, we need to have freedom from government intervention when it comes to the Internet."
Dogecoin creator Jackson Palmer and the Dogecoin Foundation are putting together Dogecon SF on April 25th in San Francisco, in partnership with Follow The Coin. The event’s organizers expect it to be the largest dogecoin gathering yet, lining up celebrity speakers such as litecoin creator Charlie Lee, Doge tip bot co-founder David Dvorak, and bitcoin evangelist Andreas Antonopoulos.
We continue bringing you interviews from the recent Inside Bitcoins New York conference today with BitAngels Managing Director David Johnston, and BitGo CEO Will O’Brien. Watch those, and then enjoy the official trailer for the bitcoin documentary, The Rise And Rise Of Bitcoin, which premieres at the Tribeca film festival next week.

4/25/14 Video News - More China uncertainty, Missourian bitcoin warning & "BadLepricon" malware

Video: http://moneyandtech.com/apr25-news-update/
Wrap up your week with today's top news in Money & Tech:
China continues to shake the bitcoin price, which dropped around $45 this morning, as Chinese publication Caixin once again published an article reaffirming the People's Bank of China's stance against bitcoin. The Chinese central bank reportedly met with commercial banks and payment processors in business with bitcoin exchanges, openly criticizing Bank of China and China Merchants Bank in particular for continuing their service with bitcoin exchange BTC China. The Caixin article states that the PBOC hopes this time to completely cut off the funding line into Bitcoin trading.
Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander issued an "Investor Alert" Thursday, cautioning his constituents that buying or trading digital currencies could carry significant risk. In his statement, Kander misinterpreted the fundamental function of digital currencies like bitcoin, likening them to “Investments that are sold as a way to make a quick profit,” and adding “I encourage Missourians to be wary of any investments that promise an unusually quick return."
Mobile security startup Lookout has identified a new, more sophisticated type of bitcoin mining malware dubbed “BadLepricon,” which is delivered via your phone's wallpaper. Lookout identified six affected wallpaper apps, which Google has now removed from their Google Play store.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke about the company's growing interest in mobile payments, saying “We have almost 800 million iTunes accounts and the majority of those have credit cards behind them. We already have people using Touch ID to buy things across our store, so it’s an area of interest to us."
At a panel Wednesday following the Tribeca premiere of Bitcoin documentary The Rise And Rise of Bitcoin, Charlie Shrem took the opportunity to talk about his current indictment, saying that he and his lawyers have “found a lot of mistakes and holes in the case.” We interviewed Charlie shortly after the screening, and will be releasing that video early next week.
Money & Tech was also at the after-party following the Bitcoin documentary on Wednesday night in New York, where we spoke with the film's creators and featured guests. We'll have video coverage of that event ready for you later today.

4/30/14 Video News - Bitcoin on Bloomberg, FinCEN, Dark Wallet & Charlie Shrem's Plea

Video: http://moneyandtech.com/apr30-news-update/
Happy Hump Day with the top current news in Money & Tech:
Bloomberg announced today that it is now providing bitcoin pricing on its Bloomberg Professional service terminal for over 320,000 global subscribers, in what the Wall Street Journal is calling a “key stamp of approval” from the traditional finance industry. The service will now allow users to monitor and chart data from bitcoin exchanges Kraken and Coinbase, as well as virtual currency news and social media posts from more than 100,000 sources. In their announcement, Bloomberg noted that they are not necessarily endorsing or guaranteeing bitcoin, but recognize that "Global interest in digital currencies has undoubtedly increased… With the addition of bitcoin pricing, we’re doing what Bloomberg has always done: provide transparency and solutions for the markets that matter to our clients."
The US Financial Crimes Enforcement Network or FinCEN has issued much needed clarification via two more bitcoin-related rulings. The new rulings state that companies selling virtual currency mining systems and escrow services should not be considered money transmitters, so long as all virtual currency mined by a third party remains the third party’s property. This new insight comes in response to a concerned letter from an American miner who found it difficult to decipher FinCEN policies issued last year.
The Reserve Bank of Australia has made public a recent briefing document describing bitcoin as a “limited risk” to the country’s monetary policy and financial stability. The briefing also calls out the transaction confirmation process as “an inefficient use of resources,” demonstrating a strong understanding of the digital currency. At the same time, the Australian Tax Office has been meeting with key figures in the crypto industry in the hopes of issuing tax guidance for all digital currency users by the end of June.
26yr old crypto-anarchist Cody Wilson, most famous for 3D printing a working gun, is ready to release his next project. The much anticipated Dark Wallet will launch on Thursday this week with an early version of the software available as a free download as well as a Google Chrome extension. The new wallet is designed to bundle and encrypt bitcoin transactions, making it difficult to trace each all the way through the blockchain.
Bitcoin entrepreneur Charlie Shrem appeared in Manhattan Federal Court on Tuesday to formally plead not guilty on charges of money laundering and facilitating bitcoin payments on the Silk Road. The presiding judge has set a trial date of September 22nd, where it will be decided whether Shrem will have to spend up to twenty years in prison. We were able to speak with Shrem last week following his appearance at the Tribeca premiere of the Bitcoin documentary, The Rise And Rise Of Bitcoin. Keep your eye out for that interview coming soon.

By partnering with this self-regulatory organization, Atlas ATS hopes to bypass FinCEN's money-transmitting license in favor of SEC-approved rules that are more tailored to digital currency exchanges. Kraken and CoinMKT are also taking this route, as several exchanges race to become the first fully regulated digital currency exchange.
Nine state banking officials from the US Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), including New York Superintendent Ben Lawsky, have launched the Emerging Payments Task Force. The new task force plans to investigate bitcoin and other virtual currencies in the hopes of developing state regulation best practices, as well as more educational resources. The discussion will begin with a public hearing on May 16th in Chicago.
With the reluctance of Irish banks to accept bitcoin, ATM provider BitVendo and safe deposit box facility Merrion Vaults have partnered to provide cold storage to BitVendo's local cryptocurrency users. The service allows users to store their bitcoins safely in Merrion Vaults' high quality and secure safe deposit vault in Dublin.
Butterfly Labs has been on rocky ground since this month's lawsuit against the bitcoin mining hardware company, accusing it of collecting payments for false orders and using customer equipment for their own mining. This recent lawsuit is only the latest accusation of fraud against the Kansas-based company. What's more, co-founder Sonny Vleisides has been found in violation of his probation since pleading guilty to one count of mail fraud in 2010, which will likely extend his probation another two years.
Dorian Nakamoto, the man famously falsely identified as bitcoin's creator, has filmed a YouTube video with Andreas Antonopoulos to thank the bitcoin community for its support. Antonopoulos led a fundraising campaign for Nakamoto that raised over 47 bitcoins - worth nearly $23,000 dollars - in a new bitcoin wallet that Nakamoto says he will keep open as a new bitcoin user.

4/25/14 Video News - More China uncertainty, Missourian bitcoin warning & "BadLepricon" malware

Video: http://moneyandtech.com/apr25-news-update/
Wrap up your week with today's top news in Money & Tech:
China continues to shake the bitcoin price, which dropped around $45 this morning, as Chinese publication Caixin once again published an article reaffirming the People's Bank of China's stance against bitcoin. The Chinese central bank reportedly met with commercial banks and payment processors in business with bitcoin exchanges, openly criticizing Bank of China and China Merchants Bank in particular for continuing their service with bitcoin exchange BTC China. The Caixin article states that the PBOC hopes this time to completely cut off the funding line into Bitcoin trading.
Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander issued an "Investor Alert" Thursday, cautioning his constituents that buying or trading digital currencies could carry significant risk. In his statement, Kander misinterpreted the fundamental function of digital currencies like bitcoin, likening them to “Investments that are sold as a way to make a quick profit,” and adding “I encourage Missourians to be wary of any investments that promise an unusually quick return."
Mobile security startup Lookout has identified a new, more sophisticated type of bitcoin mining malware dubbed “BadLepricon,” which is delivered via your phone's wallpaper. Lookout identified six affected wallpaper apps, which Google has now removed from their Google Play store.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke about the company's growing interest in mobile payments, saying “We have almost 800 million iTunes accounts and the majority of those have credit cards behind them. We already have people using Touch ID to buy things across our store, so it’s an area of interest to us."
At a panel Wednesday following the Tribeca premiere of Bitcoin documentary The Rise And Rise of Bitcoin, Charlie Shrem took the opportunity to talk about his current indictment, saying that he and his lawyers have “found a lot of mistakes and holes in the case.” We interviewed Charlie shortly after the screening, and will be releasing that video early next week.
Money & Tech was also at the after-party following the Bitcoin documentary on Wednesday night in New York, where we spoke with the film's creators and featured guests. We'll have video coverage of that event ready for you later today.
