Save MtGox - Bitcoin Important Implications of Going Down / Commodities / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Cutting right to the chase: short positions might be the way to go now (stop-loss at $550).

A group of investors has come up with an initiative to convince the Tokyo Distric Court to not liquidate Mt. Gox's assets but instead give a go-ahead to the plan to rehabilitate the failed exchange. A website Save Gox has been set up and the plan has been outlined on it. We can read:

By: Mike_McAra

Briefly: we don’t support any short-term positions now.

New Bitcoin-related products seem to be hitting the market every day now. New types of altcoins, new kinds of wallets, new services. The currency is surrounded by a wide umbrella of solutions which might help bring it to the attention of the mainstream public. So, what’s stopping us from using bitcoin debit cards? Cryptex, a Hong-Kong-based company asked themselves the same question and couldn’t think of a good reason not to.

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

The Financial Post reported that Bill Downe, CEO of the Bank of Montreal, expressed the view his company would consider dealing in Bitcoin was the currency a stable means of exchange:

If it was reliable and if it was regulated, “then there’s no reason why we couldn’t be an intermediary in bitcoin-related transactions,” Bill Downe said in an interview after the company’s annual general meeting in Toronto.

Bitcoins, Are Cryptocoins Money? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Michael_S_Rozeff

The bottom line is that cryptocoins are not money. The Austrian analysis rules.

Money’s key property is that it is a numeraire for goods. Wikipedia puts it this way:

“Numéraire is a basic standard by which value is computed. Acting as the numéraire is one of the functions of money, to serve as a unit of account: to measure the worth of different goods and services relative to one another, i.e. in same units.”

Bitcoin Scam - MTGox Finds 200,000 Behind Sofa, How Many More Hidden in old Socks, Coat, Shoes? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nadeem_Walayat

MtGox which stands for 'Magic the Gathering' and not 'Mount Gox' that the mainstream broadcast press still mistakenly reports it as, has apparently found 200,000 of the estimated 800,000 missing bitcoins behind what amounts to an electronic sofa, as MtGox reveals that 200,000 bitcoins worth approx $100 million were found in an old digital wallet kept off line (old hard drive) that effectively blows a hole in their whole story to date of being innocent victims of 'bitcoin transaction malleability' (causing transactions to be issued twice) as the means by which theft of the MTGox bitcoins took place that MtGox representatives have been spouting of since at least Mid Feb when the web site filed for bankruptcy.

If you don’t have time: we think shorts could become more profitable.

We’ve long been discussing Mt. Gox’s fall and the credibility of Mt. Gox’s claims that their Bitcoins might have been stolen via transaction malleability exploits. It now turns out that Christian Decker and Roger Wattenhofer of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich came up with a paper in which they analyze Bitcoin transactions on Mt. Gox starting with data from January 2013.

Bitcoin Price Move Below $600 Continues / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Cutting right to the chase: we don't think going short is a good idea yet.

Just when you would think the situation with Mt. Gox couldn't get any stranger, it has. Apparently, the exchange "found" almost BTC 200,000 in one of its old wallets this month. The coins would be currently worth approximately $115 million. A statement published yesterday on the exchanges website reads:

MtGox Co., Ltd. had certain old-format wallets which were used in the past and which, MtGox thought, no longer held any bitcoins. Following the application for commencement of a civil rehabilitation proceeding, these wallets were rescanned and their balance researched. On March 7, 2014, MtGox Co., Ltd. confirmed that an old-format wallet which was used prior to June 2011 held a balance of approximately 200,000 BTC (199,999.99 BTC). MtGox Co., Ltd. investigated the presence of these 200,000 BTC, immediately reported it to its counsels in the application for commencement of a civil rehabilitation proceedings ("counsels"). A hearing took place on March 8 where a detailed explanation of the situation was made to counsels. Immediately on Monday (March 10), counsels reported the existence of the 200,000 BTC to the Court and the Supervisor.

Bitcoin - My Two Bits / Commodities / Bitcoin

By: David_Morgan

Some have asked our view on Bitcoin, and my response is simply -- I view these things from a Free Market perspective. I have often stated that "The Market knows more than any of us". I would not want to be labeled a hypocrite by stating my conviction that the "real" free market is capable of making decisions that are in the best interest of masses, and then proceed to disparage Bitcoin through a personal bias.

However, I do have a personal bias as to the basic construct of money, or what I would prefer to think of as "real" money. Here the span of history has given us a very clear message that a fair exchange of value for value is the only ethical way for people to conduct a transaction that is mutually beneficial for both parties.

Mt. Gox has enabled users to log into their accounts and check their wallet balance. Before users get excited – this doesn’t mean that they will be able to access their money. For all we know, these balances are nothing more than numbers on a computer screen, or if you will in a database. Mt. Gox reminds of that using different wording:

What is more, the applications of Bitcoin or its underlying general ledger (blockchain) system might not be restricted to money transfers:

The mainstream media has put out a lot of stories detailing the demise of the Mt. Gox exchange, but they haven't had nearly as much to say about why Bitcoin prices are rising again.

Maybe that's because so many of them are rooting for Bitcoin to fail, especially if they're on record having written off the digital currency as a bubble. But reality keeps interrupting that narrative - and rather rudely.

The Bitcoin USD price has recovered strongly by more than doubling from the crash low of $240 of 16th February in the wake of the collapse of the worlds largest Bitcoin exchange MTGox (Magic the Gathering) that declared bankruptcy a couple of days ago, though the current Bitcoin market price of $560 is still half the $1250 high of less than 3 months ago.
