Bitcoin Press Release: With Greece’s Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras suggesting the Greek government could issue their own digital currency – is this a viable solution? Alan Yong of DNotes explores how an established, ethical digital currency may be the most sustainable long term solution for Greece, and why digital currency enables anyone to access their money whenever they need it. “This is a very sad and tragic situation. The rich may end up losing a vacation home in a foreign country but many of the less fortunate are at risk of losing their entire life savings, while being too old to rebuild their nest egg. It is even more depressing when no viable political solutions exist to give Greece’s citizens […]

Over the past 24 hours, the blockchain has been inundated with small, spam-like transactions that are large in data size, but significantly small in bitcoin value transferred. At the peak, there were more than 50,000 unconfirmed transactions waiting to be mined into a block, resulting in delays for normal transactions to be confirmed. While the network has been working to decrease this backlog — transactions are down to 31,000 at time of this article’s writing — the type of transactions that are being sent suggest this is a continuation of a stress test that has been put on the system. There have been numerous transactions hitting the network with tiny transaction values, such as 0.0001 bitcoin being sent repeatedly. While […]

The confusing, user-unfriendly format of Bitcoin addresses has turned off many possible new users in the past, but Onename has been working on a solution to this ease-of-use issue for quite some time. Although the ability to link a Bitcoin address to a Onename username has been available for a while now, a newly released API will allow bitcoin users to share one easy-to-understand name with their friends and work colleagues. Privacy Concerns Remain Although Onename allows users to map their username to a static Bitcoin address, there are a few issues with the current setup. Reusing addresses is known to be bad for privacy in Bitcoin, and not many knowledgeable bitcoin users want to move to a system that […]

Greek voters have issued a surprisingly loud and clear statement of support to Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, and defiance to European authorities and the International Monetary Fund. In the referendum celebrated Sunday, an overwhelming majority of more than 61 percent of Greeks, with an impressive 22 percent lead over the 39 percent of Greeks who voted yes, have said no to the bailout deal proposed by the country’s creditors. Opinion polls before the referendum showed the difference between the Yes and No camps as too close to call, and therefore the strong majority won by Tsipras comes as a shock to many observers. The European authorities should consider the results of the referendum a wake-up call – the Greeks […]

Earlier this week, Greece became the first developed nation ever to default on the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Negotiations with the European Union (EU) and the IMF are stalling, and Greek voters on Sunday rejected new bailout terms. On Monday, Greece closed its banks and imposed capital controls to prevent financial chaos after the breakdown of bailout talks. Banks and ATMs are still working on a very limited basis, which makes things difficult for families and pensioners. For businesses and entrepreneurs who depend on cross-border sales and imported goods or services, the situation couldn’t be worse: They are unable to pay their suppliers abroad because cross-border bank wires are suspended, and the have only limited access to their sales income.
