I awaken this morning feeling optimistic. I’d seen last night that a big announcement from Coinbase was coming, and the Wall Street Journal appeared to confirm that the announcement was to be a fully regulated U.S. exchange. The price shot up immediately and was still rising when I went to bed. Now, I look at the price widget on my phone and my optimism vanishes. If Bitcoin price is any measurement of enthusiasm, it’s clear before I get downstairs that Coinbase’s big revelation hasn’t quite lived up to expectations. I head to the new exchange site, log in with my Coinbase credentials and… I suspect this explains the lack of enthusiasm. I turn to Reddit, Twitter—all my usual sources—and hear […]

Congratulations, virtual currency world—New York wants to expressly regulate you! That’s how important Bitcoin and other digital currencies have become in recent years. And as we know, what happens in New York’s financial world often has implications for the wider world. All the recent attention New York has paid to virtual currency is raising many important legal questions, with potentially profound implications. This article will offer a brief survey of just some of them. A Cryptic History of Money Bitcoin is the latest and best known in a long line of digital currencies. The basic premise of digital currencies is that they try to establish a medium of exchange based on immutable mathematics, thus putting the currency beyond the control […]

Double standards are like mosquitoes to me: after hearing their buzz for a while, I want nothing more than to shine a flashlight their way and swat them down mercilessly. One such double standard is the harsh way in which economists and commentators criticize Bitcoin technology, while at the same time taking for granted the financial system that they live under every day. Yes, the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is very volatile still, and the ecosystem that develops around them has been a Wild West so far. But in the six years of Bitcoin’s existence, the underlying technology—decentralized and open source in nature—has proven itself to be extremely robust and constantly evolving. Bad computer code is replaced over […]

Jan 22. 2015 for BitcoinMagazine.com Those within the industry understand that one of Bitcoin’s most important features—and perhaps its true core innovation—is its decentralized structure. Bitcoin has no central control: no central repository of information, no central management, and, crucially, no central point of failure. And yet, most of the actual services and businesses built within the Bitcoin ecosystem are centralized. They are run by specific people, in specific locations, with specific computer systems, and they are susceptible to specific legal entanglements. This situation creates tension and certainly a little irony—we have a decentralized technology, yet most things existing upon it are centralized. To a casual observer, and even more to a cynical one, it may appear that the claim […]
