Jeremy Allaire demos Circle and talks about the upcoming growth of Bitcoin. Bitcoin holds enormous potential to transform industry and society as much as the commercial Web did twenty years ago. From smart contracts to property to payments and insurance, Bitcoin promises vast improvements upon traditional systems of transaction and value exchange. However, Bitcoin's breakthrough moment into the mainstream will likely be determined not by its ability to replace traditional financial systems, but by its capacity to integrate with and modernize consumer finance. In this keynote session, Circle CEO and Founder Jeremy Allaire examines global industry trends, regulatory developments, and product innovations that will accelerate the mainstream adoption of Bitcoin and improve the way individuals and business use money.

http://moneyandtech.com/apr28-news-update/ Start off your week with today's top news stories in Money & Tech: Prolific Silk Road vendor Cornelis Jan Slomp, or "SuperTrips" as he's known to his customers, plead guilty to federal charges of conspiracy to import and distribute various controlled substances, including 104 kilograms of MDMA, and substantial quantities of cocaine, LSD, marijuana, methamphetamine, ketamine, and Xanax. Slomp had allegedly been importing envelopes containing these substances through the Chicago O'Hare International Airport, where an undercover investigation caught up with him. Slomp will be tried in the Federal Court in Chicago, where he faces a mandatory minimum of 5yrs and a maximum of 40yrs in prison with a $5 million fine. Already becoming a bitcoin-friendly city, Amsterdam now has a bitcoin ATM. The new BTC-O-MATIC machine has been installed at coffee shop Courtyard of Wise, near the Amsterdam Central station, and will be operating this Wednesday during the Dutch Ethereum & Bitcoin Meetup. The machine has also arrived in time for the Bitcoin Conference 2014 coming up in May. BitcoinWebHosting.net has partnered with Sucuri Security to offer website protection and malware removal for bitcoin. Now Bitcoin Web Hosting customers can opt-in to Sucuri's website security suite, which includes protection from DDoS attacks, out-of-date software, malware distribution and website blacklisting. As Sucuri COO Tony Perez puts it, "It's our mission to protect every website on the Internet, and [this] is a step in that direction." In response to the local Bitcoin Boulevard project in Cleveland's Cedar & Lee district, Ohio has effectively banned the use of bitcoin for alcohol sales. The state's Liquor Control Law indicates that payment for alcohol in Ohio with anything other than US currency is prohibited, which includes bitcoin, since it has not been recognized as a currency. Maryland and Nevada have also both issued new advisory warnings on bitcoin, similarly encouraging consumers to 'do their homework' and familiarise themselves with the risks of digital currencies. In the wake of China's renewed vow to cut bitcoin funding, leading bitcoin exchange BTC China has finally been forced to cease customer deposits with the China Merchants Bank. However, CEO Bobby Lee does not expect this closure will have a substantial impact on their business, given that BTC China customers can still use accounts with other financial institutions, including the Bank of China. Despite the growing uncertainty, China will host its first Bitcoin conference, The Global Bitcoin Summit 2014, which will be held at the China National Convention Center in Beijing on May 10th to 11th. The event hopes to attract top notch experts, economists, investors, lawyers, and even government agencies, to help shed light on future bitcoin trends in China and abroad and help attendees build a bridge for better communications and continued growth. Bitcoin incubator Boost VC hosted a bitcoin hackathon this past weekend. First place was awarded to bitcoin startup Coinviz, which boasts the ability to easily visualize block chain transactions and information. Second place went to bitcoin derivatives platform Coindash, which helps bitcoin investors hedge their investments for reduced volatility risk. And third place went to betting platform Bitbook.ie. Yelp appears to have added a new category allowing business owners to specify whether or not they accept bitcoin, under the 'More business info' section on its Yelp page. For bitcoin enthusiasts eager to transact in the cryptocurrency wherever possible, this added feature makes finding local businesses much easier.

http://moneyandtech.com/may-13-news-update/ Leading merchant services provider BitPay confirmed they have raised the bitcoin industry's biggest funding round to date, with a total accumulated investment reaching $32.7 million dollars. The funding round was led by Index Ventures, and included several other venture capitalists such as Sir Richard Branson and Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang. BitPay plans to use the additional investment to expand globally and triple their workforce. As Index Ventures partner Jan Hammer says, ""BitPay is already the proven and trusted winner in this space... and the combination of the huge market opportunity, the quality of the talent and this fresh injection of capital, will surely propel them to success on a global scale." Mining hardware manufacturer Hashfast is facing more financial troubles. We reported yesterday that the embattled company laid off half their workforce in order to stay afloat. But now the company has been dealt a Chapter 7 involuntary bankruptcy petition that would liquidate the company, in an attempt to recover over $330,000 dollars in payments that were allegedly never fulfilled. Hashfast has 21 days to respond and prove its solvency, and if unable, may choose to resort to filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. The company has responded that they are evaluating their position and preparing their response. Square has decided to pull their Wallet app from app stores given its failure to catch on. However, Square Wallet users won't be abandoned, as Square plans to quickly replaced the Wallet app with their new Square Order app, a more streamlined version that lets you order ahead at local businesses and skip the lines. Mexican bitcoin exchange Bitso has launched the country's the first Ripple Gateway, and with it, the first issuer of Mexican Peso on the Ripple payment network. As CTO and co-founder Ben Peters says, "We are committed to developing the infrastructure required to revolutionise the incumbent remittance ecosystem in Mexico, harnessing the transformative innovations of cryptocurrency." Bitcoin exchanges in China are considering ways to escape the People's Bank Of China's crackdown on Bitcoin that has forced many of them to close accounts with banking partners and, for some, shut down operations completely. Leon Li, CEO of exchange Huobi, says "We have two paths of action [to protect] our platform. We are trying to create an offshore account and to go international." Exchanges aren't the only types of businesses looking to relocate. Bitcoin ATM manufacturer BitOcean is also considering moving its business outside of mainland. As its managing director Hong Cheng says, "China is only part of the world; bitcoin belongs to the world." Bitcoin ATM maker Diamond Circle has announced it will launch a new bitcoin debit card at the upcoming Bitcoin 2014 Conference in Amsterdam on May 15th to 17th. The card will work with Diamond Circle's two-way cashless ATM machines, as well as with their forthcoming new point-of-sale card readers. Bitcoin ATM manufacturer Lamassu also has something in store for the Amsterdam Conference, where they will debut their new Santo Tirso floor stand. The new product will sit under current Lamassu ATMs, converting them into two-way machines, which means customers will be able to exchange bitcoin for cash, where previously they were only able to do the reverse. Secondhand electronics retailer CeX will be the first store in U.K. to pay people bitcoin in exchange their second-hand goods and gadgets. The company plans to completely switch all 200 of its stores from the British pound to bitcoin for three days. As commercial director David Butler puts it, "In our store, the staff and customers live and breathe technology... It's only appropriate we looked at bitcoin as a way for our customers to buy and sell electronic goods." We recently got to talk to Bitcoin entrepreneur and expert Andreas Antonopoulos at the Bitcoin Job Fair, who told us all about his new book Mastering Bitcoin, and how he's been seeing the bitcoin community grow exponentially.

http://moneyandtech.com/may19-news-update/ Accounting software developer Intuit has announced that it is testing a new payments service called QuickBooks Bitcoin Payments designed to help small businesses accept bitcoin without having to bother with bitcoin wallets or even deal with bitcoin at all. No launch date is yet know, but Intuit's extensive user base and number of point-of-sale systems across the US is sure to give them a leg up on the competition. Sweden-based bitcoin exchange Safello has announced a new partnership with payments validation and ID verification service provider Jumio in an effort to simplify its customer onboarding process. Now using Jumio's Bitcoin Identity Security Open Network (or BISON), Safello CEO Frank Schuil says, "We have optimised our platform for the quickest turnaround time as we don't require such initial deposits, but instead execute the trade directly to the market." Cryptocurrency exchange DogeVault has confirmed rumours that it has lost about seventy per cent of its customers' Dogecoin, after an attacker gained full access to their systems. The remaining Dogecoin have been recovered and transferred to safe storage while they try and patch their system, and develop a plan to refund the stolen Doge. Australian bitcoin company CoinJar has launched their new website, which features a series of stories highlighting four Australians who are exploring the possibilities of bitcoin in unique ways. The company plans to continue sharing these stories with a larger documentary coming May 21st. As Creative Director Cade Diehm says, "We believe we have a responsibility to celebrate and champion the human stories of this exciting technology." Self-proclaimed bitcoin millionaire Olivier Janssens took to the Bitcoin sub-reddit page to propose a $100,000 dollar bounty to anyone who can develop a software platform to replace the Bitcoin Foundation. Naming his criticism of the Foundation's recent choices and political structure, which he calls archaic and non-transparent, Janssens is calling for a platform that lets people voice their opinion, propose projects, and vote on a detailed roadmap of features from the core developers. Janssens says, "This will allow Bitcoin to grow and expand at a rate it deserves, a rate that a political organisation such as the foundation can never accomplish." The winners of the Blockchain Awards were announced at the Bitcoin 2014 Conference in Amsterdam, honoring recipients in ten different categories. Among those were The Bitcoin Society, winner of Most Impactful Charity, Marc Andreessen as the Most Influential Investor, and the Mycelium Android Wallet as the Best Mobile App. And Dogecoin is finally going to the moon with a new challenge from cloud computing design firm RevUp Render. In this new Dogecoin-themed Lunar Iditarod challenge, competitors will design and build micro-rovers the size of smartphones, dubbed DogeSleds, that would first race against each other on Earth, in San Francisco. The top three DogeSleds from those races will then be sent to the moon on Google's forthcoming moon lander where they will race each other in a nine meter course on the lunar surface. http://moneyandtech.com/may19-news-update/

Bitcoin 2014's The Digital Economy's Panel: History of Money & Lessons for Digital Currencies Today took place on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at the Passenger Terminal Amsterdam (PTA) Backstage Area from 12:00pm-1:00pm. Mankind has used money for more than 2,500 years. Realizing the limitations of a simple barter economy and the constant requirement of a coincidence of wants that it brings, cultures across the world used forms of money as a medium of exchange and a store of value. Beginning with commodities such as grain and cattle, gold and silver emerged as the most common form of money throughout history. This form of money was apolitical, with a limited and practically inelastic supply. Over the last 1,000 years, governments have experimented with paper money systems over which they have complete control. Since 1971, and for the first time in history, the entire world has adopted a paper money system - unbacked by any commodity and with a completely elastic supply. Bitcoin has emerged as a new challenger to the current status quo of government-controlled paper money. With its decentralized, peer-to-peer payment system - independent of any central control - this digital currency has the potential to revolutionize how the public use money in the 21st Century. This panel asks what lessons Bitcoin and other digital currencies can learn from the history of money so far, and what are its prospects for adoption worldwide in the years ahead.
