  • Amid the turmoil of today’s news regarding Russia “banning bitcoin“… again. It seems a good time to sit back and ask ourselves just what kind of threats cryptocurrencies face both internally and externally. The obvious starter to this conversation is of course, government regulation. As entrenched oligarchies feel their stranglehold of the money supply loosening we can expect a whole range of tactics to be employed by various regulatory bodies across the globe. In fact,

  • Russia is considering banning the use of virtual currencies such as Bitcoin, and the new laws may be ready by next spring. It seems that the cross-border nature of virtual currencies, along with the fact that transactions take place anonymously and that there’s no supervisory body are bothering regulators. They believe that makes currencies such as Bitcoins perfect for illegal transactions, ranging from funding terrorism, purchases of illicit goods to money laundering. Off course this

  • I examine the dollar tracking mechanisms of both NXT and BitsharesX. If a few months ago you would have told me I’d have two digital options, existing in an extremely low fee environment, capable of shoring up value because they were pegged to the US Dollar… I probably wouldn’t have believed you. If your currency of choice is going through a chaotic, volatile phase why not simply store that value (temporarily) in an asset that

  • Bitcoin promises extraordinary rewards to early adopters, should it go mainstream. The rewards are potentially far greater, for the earliest adopters, than could be achieved by starting a successful business. Nakamoto himself could end up by far richest person who has ever lived, and many others will end up in fabulous luxury just for mining on their laptops or spending miniscule amounts of money in 2009. Lots of people don’t like this prospect, often because

Being a true masochist when it comes to research and all things cryptocurrency I decided it wouldn’t be enough to explore 1BTCXE’s new trading platform or BitVCs new trading platform one at a time but to instead play both on nightmare difficulty by attempting to navigate both at the same time.

  • Things don’t usually stay stable for long, especially when it comes to the market and prices of cryptocurrency. Bitcoin for example saw a minor depression due to erratic trading bot activity on BTC-E. This has brought down the price between the $470-$480 ranges, $20 from the “normal” of $500. On top of this there is news of Satoshi’s p2p account getting hacked, which is sure to cause some fear. On the flip side, Paypal and
