In short: we don't support any short-term positions now.

The big news of the day is the relatively small change in Apple policy which might, nonetheless, suggest that the company is changing its stance on virtual currencies, most notably on Bitcoin. The Guardian reported that Apple had changed its application review guidelines. The most interesting bit for Bitcoin enthusiasts is point 11.17 of the new rules:

The 500 Cryptos That Aren't Bitcoin: Intro to Altcoins / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

Mark Blair writes: for those outside the crypto sphere, cryptos are pretty much just Bitcoin. However, I offer here a tour of the 'altcoin' universe: Bitcoin is by no means a done deal, readers, as any altcoiner knows.

For example, a year ago, Bitcoin held 95%-plus of the total market cap of all cryptos. There are over 500 cryptographic currencies at present, though at least 300 are rubbish, and will die. See com-http.us for the best list I know of.

This Chart Proves the Bitcoin Market Is Maturing / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: One of the biggest knocks on the Bitcoin market has been the volatility of the price of Bitcoin, and looking at the price charts over the past six months, it's easy to see why.

But as crazy as the Bitcoin market has been - just take a look at the timeline - the lack of any major news over the past few weeks has had a distinct calming effect on the digital currency.

No Stop for Bitcoin Price before $600? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In short: we don’t support any short-term positions in the Bitcoin market.

We frequently repeat that it is hard to exactly pinpoint what’s behind a given price move. While some reasons given by the media might have merit, in most of the cases claiming that “Bitcoin moved because X” (plug whatever you want for X) might not be warranted. This is probably done for the sake of a “good story” but does not have to have much to do with actual reasons for the price fluctuations.

Forbes' Kashmir Hill posted an article yesterday in which she discusses the possibility of sending bitcoins to people living in emerging markets:

Earlier this week, many in the Bitcoin community got very excited about a short film that demonstrates a promising use for Bitcoin. Ronah, a Ugandan woman who emigrated to Brookline, Massachusetts in 2011, regularly sends tuition money to her 20-year-old brother, Ronald, who is studying accounting and finance in Kampala. (...)

Squawk Showdown: Bitcoin or Gold? What’s Next for Currency / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

Georgi Ivanov writes: Our recent Squawk Walk on the streets of Taipei surveyed people at random what they would decide, given a choice to walk away with a gram of gold or a USB stick, loaded with one bitcoin. The responses varied, but with a slight margin, bitcoin won the competition. We have to ask – are virtual currencies on the path to revolutionizing the global financial system, or are they just a lot of hot air?  The truth would have to be somewhere in the middle: changes are coming, but they will not be revolutionary, yet, cryptocurrencies do offer a new opportunity for the unprecedented democratization of global finance.

To the point: we still support short speculative positions in the Bitcoin market, stop-loss at $470.

Bitcoin is sometimes viewed as a highly disruptive innovation with the potential to change the payment system. While it surely provides a lot of opportunities, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will cut the banks out of the system. Bloomberg posted a piece yesterday in which it argues that the very banks that would feel any kind of threat from Bitcoin are currently studying the innovative nature of Bitcoin to possibly come up with their own kinds of seamless payment systems:

Bitcoin is a Fascinating Story, and I Think it's Real / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Bloomberg

Michael Novogratz, principal of Fortress Investment Group, spoke with Bloomberg Television anchor Stephanie Ruhle from the Sohn Investment Conference in New York today.

Novogratz talked about Bitcoin, saying, "Intellectually it's a fascinating story to me, and I think it's real. If you look at the total market cap of Bitcoin, it's probably somewhere between $4.5 billion, $5 billion. There are in best estimates somewhere 30,000 individual programmers working on Bitcoin. My college roommate lives down in Barbados. He was the smartest guy that we went to school with. He full time works on derivatives of Bitcoin. So there's this open source community where there's huge brain power, let alone all the VC money that's going in. And so from Marc Andreessen and his company to Benchmark...there's lots of smart money going in. I've never seen a small project with more human capital going into it, and so I kind of want to bet just on that alone."

In short: we don’t support any short-term positions in the Bitcoin market at the moment.

It looks like Mt. Gox’s creditors in Canada and the U.S., or at least those of them who took part in the class action lawsuits, have come to an agreement with potential investors. Today, Reuters posted a story according to which former Mt. Gox customers had agreed to settle the class action lawsuits in exchange for the 200,000 bitcoins found at Mt. Gox, $20 million in other currencies and, perhaps most importantly, for a 16.5% stake in a revived Mt. Gox.
