Bitcoin Battalion Back in December we reported that the United States Air Force has quietly been working on a Bitcoin payment gateway otherwise known as a “snack machine” (yes you read that correctly). We also discussed that “currency is like another class of supply, a commodity required to execute the battle.” Recently, United States sanctions against the Kremlin for annexing Ukraine resulted in MasterCard and Visa suspending certain types of transactions in Russia (apparently due to the OFAC 50% rule). OFAC or Office of Foreign Assets Control under the Department of U.S. Treasury maintains a list of different sanctions programs that it administers here. It has been reported that Visa did resume services with some Russian banks. I found an […]

Dogecoin has become a very popular cryptocurrency since it was introduced in December 2013. Since then, this currency based on the popular internet meme has been widely used as a “tipping” system for dogecoin Reddit users, while also acting as a successful medium for crowdfunding campaigns. The internet meme features funny, nonsensical and misspelled captions overlayed atop images of a Shiba Inu dog. For those unfamiliar, these captions include, “so very wow,” “such coin,” “very moon,” some of which are hard to understand for those outside the growing community. Developed and created by Billy Markus, with an aim to create a “fun” cryptocurrency that could reach a broader demographic than Bitcoin, Dogecoin has achieved sizeable growth in the short six […]

How can you put your Bitcoin to good use? In so many ways! One opportunity that you have to consider today is donating to the BitGive Foundation’s Water Project Campaign. The Water Project recently began accepting Bitcoin and focuses on delivering clean water to Sub Saharan Africa. As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Water Project seeks to build a foundation in communities in need of a sustainable water supply. You can be apart of this project. Most of us simply take our running faucets and clean water for granted, but many do not have access to clean drinking water. I agree with the Water Project that, “clean water saves lives.” Donating even 5 USD in BTC can and will truly make […]

If you seek artisan made goods, Central Texas is the place to be. Some attribute it to the magical waters flowing from springs into the river, some attribute it to the weather, others to the people. No matter the reason, one cannot deny that Central Texas is home to a thriving entrepreneurial/artisan movement – a movement that now accepts bitcoin! One such artisan is Bitcoin enthusiast and singer/songwriter, Sarah Stollak, owner of World on a String Jewelry. I met Sarah at one of my husband’s activist related court dates. She was sitting beside me crocheting jewelry with writing pens because her crochet needles were confiscated at the security checkpoint at the courthouse. This radical woman is not afraid to be […]

Sports gambling in America is big business. It is also, largely, illegal. According to the National Gambling Impact Study Commission, nearly $400 billion is wagered on sports by United States citizens during a given year, with only $3.5 billion of those bets being placed at legal books in Nevada. With only one state offering legal sports betting, how is it that U.S. citizens are able to gamble so much on games? While a significant portion of illegal gambling is still done in person, the internet has allowed the popularity of the pastime to soar. Widely used sites such as Bovada and 5Dimes that are based outside of U.S. jurisdiction (Canada and Costa Rica, respectively) offer gamblers a way to get […]

A Japanese bankruptcy court declared this week that collapsed Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox will not be permitted to reorganize and therefore must enter liquidation. The court rejected Mt. Gox’s petition (similar to a Chapter 7 filing in the United States) on the grounds that the plan of reorganization submitted by Mt. Gox is unlikely to be successful. Moreover, the court claimed that CEO Mark Karpeles has lost the confidence of creditors and customers whose cooperation would be necessary to carry out the reorganization under Japanese law. Liquidation comes as unwelcome news to Mt. Gox’s customers, many of whom have held on to the possibility of a full recovery of lost funds. Since liquidation involves selling or otherwise distributing all of […]

A major problem with adapting Bitcoin as one’s main currency is the difficulty in making trust-less transactions. Don’t get me wrong; the technology and network behind Bitcoin aren’t the problem. It’s the disconnect between the network of people that two parties may share that can create concern. There is still an issue with making a transaction with an individual especially if they are shipping you a physical device like an electronic device where there is no certainty they are trustworthy without using a commonly trusted user or 3rd party as an escrow. There is a great solution to helping make trustworthy connections within the Bitcoin community and it’s called Bitcorati. This website aims to provide services similar to what […]

Written by Ivan Raszl,GM of MediaBistro, blogger at Bitcoin Owl and associate at Inside Bitcoins Conference. Originally posted at http://bitcoinowl.com/everything-starting-fall-place-bitcoin Bitcoin is a fairly new phenomena. Nobody at this stage can be sure if it will survive its infancy. But, if we look at the major issues and opportunities surrounding this new technology the signs seem to be all aligning for an exciting two years. Developing world joining Bitcoin‘s adoption in the West may be considered slow considering the advantages it offers. And there is a good reason for this. Most westerners in general do not need Bitcoin. We have a fairly good banking system and we can afford the costs associated with it. We accept the yearly $100-200 bank […]

This afternoon, Texans for Greg Abbott announced acceptance of Bitcoin for campaign donations. Greg Abbott is running as the Republican candidate in the Texas Gubernatorial race. Striving to be a cutting edge candidate, Abbott stated, “I’m excited to see our campaign add another tool to our cutting-edge digital outreach, which is allowing us to reach more Texans than any previous campaign in the state.” It is great to see that Abbott as well as other policymakers note the opportunities Bitcoin has to promote free market economics and ingenuity across the board. Abbott’s campaign will certainly not be the first to embrace Bitcoin in the 2014 election cycle. Abbott’s campaign team published the following press release: April 17, 2014 For Immediate […]
