The Biggest Bitcoin Myths Debunked / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: Bitcoin has been in the news a lot lately, but few people - even those talking about it in the media - really have a solid grasp on this groundbreaking digital currency.

What most people do know about Bitcoin is its meteoric rise in value over the past couple of months. The price of Bitcoins trading on the Mt. Gox exchange rose from less than $100 at the end of July to more than $1,200 at the end of November.

Bitcoin’s Evolution Will be SWIFT / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Chris Horlacher writes: A lot of attention has been paid to bitcoin in the last couple of weeks.  As Chinese buyers piled in to the market, a gathering of bureaucrats in the United States gave their blessing to the nascent currency.  The price movements in bitcoin have been jaw-dropping, to say the least.  The naysayers, looking for any reason to belittle this digital innovation, leaped on a Bank of China announcement that prohibited Chinese banks from dealing with the currency.  To those that have been paying attention, China has had a ban on virtual currencies since June of 2009 so this comes as no surprise.  Other investors and speculators are painting pictures of tulip bulbs for us in the mainstream news, but even the Dutch didn’t see action this intense.  Like Rocky Balboa, this new invention refuses to stay down.

Bitcoins vs. Greenbacks and/or Gold and Silver / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Gary_North

There are conflicting stories among Bitcoins’ supporters about why a Japanese programmer or team of Japanese programmers, who are known by a pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto, developed the original idea for the Bitcoins software.

The primary justification for Bitcoins among libertarians is the prediction that Bitcoins will become an alternative currency to all existing central bank currencies. Bitcoins are seen as a first-stage revolt against central bank money.

Bitcoin Price Crash Towards Zero? The Ponzi Scheme Bubble Plays Out as Designed / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Bitcoin price last traded at USD 790 (this morning) which represents a 37% price crash against its trading high of 1242, vaporising the wild dreams of just a few days ago where some reported that the virtual money could be destined to go as high as 1 million! Whilst never realising the difference between what is virtual and what is real, instead in large part bitcoin pumper's remain in denial as many have been seduced by the golden coin image to imagine that bitcoins and gold are the same or similar when the reality is the exact opposite. Bitcoins is fairy dust, it is perceived as being very valuable but a small gust of reality is enough to make it disappear.

Profit from The Bitcoin Tulipmania & The Gold Cartel / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: DeepCaster_LLC

 “Tulipmania was the first major financial bubble. Investors began to madly purchase tulips, pushing their prices up to unprecedented highs; the average price of a single flower bulb exceeded ten times the annual income of a skilled craftsman. Tulips sold for over 4000 florins, the currency of the Netherlands at the time. As prices drastically collapsed over the course of a week, many tulip holders instantly went bankrupt.” investopedia.com

It is no secret that an investment in Bitcoins – the Digital Non-National Currency – has generated Phenomenal Profits recently. Profits, that is, for those who bought early and chose to sell before the recent Chinese “Bitcoin Veto” Announcement.

Gold 2.0 NOT Tulip Mania: How Big Is The Cryptocurrency Opportunity? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: DK_Matai

Make no mistake, the Bitcoin opportunity is creating a fast evolving trillion dollar new market in cryptocurrency eCommerce and more importantly mCommerce or mobile-Commerce. The future of cryptocurrencies is being secured right now with the launch of many new apps to enable digital cash, electronic payments and secure eWallets using cryptocurrencies via smart phones and other digital devices such as secure pens, sophisticated crypto-watches and customised memory sticks. Cryptocurrency adoption is growing very fast, in a similar exponential curve to the adoption of the world wide web in the years following 1995 or even the spread of electric power exactly a hundred years before that.

Bitcoin Mania Bubble Bursts, China Triggers Price Crash Start, Technical Forecast / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The bitcoin bubble appears to have burst as a stepped series of price crashes are underway with the price currently standing at 1074 down form 1240 barely a day earlier. A clue to its future direction can be discerned from the unfolding technical price patterns, that just as I wrote wrote in the run up to the peak of the Bitcoin bubble with the price converging on USD 1250 that the market was primed to crash and all it was waiting for was any even marginally negative news to act as trigger for increasing waves of market panics as GREED amongst the bitcoin mania hoarders turns into fear of loss of paper profits.

Greenspan - I Guess Bitcoin Is A Bubble / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Bloomberg

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan told Bloomberg Television's Trish Regan and Adam Johnson on "Street Smart" today that "I guess" Bitcoin is a bubble. He said, "the question is I do not understand where the backing of Bitcoin is coming from... Individuals with very high net worth and who have great reputations could create their own currency because people would be willing to exchange their checks with others probably at par. That is not the case with Bitcoin."

Eschewing Traditional Fundamentals to Understand the Bitcon, Cryptocoin Market / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Keith_Hilden

As Bitcoin and other cryptocoins are gaining interest with Wall Street firms and tech aficionados alike as an asset class and/or emerging currency to get exposure to, there is a need to understand these cryptocurrency markets. However, we are quickly learning as a group that cryptocurrencies are not understood in the same way as traditional asset classes. We are dealing with new market dynamics, and as such we need to adopt new thinking in order to understand the fundamentals and the drivers influencing price and direction in the Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency markets.

Is Bitcoin a Ponzi Scheme? / Stock-Markets / Bitcoin

By: Gary_North

I hereby make a prediction: Bitcoins will go down in history as the most spectacular private Ponzi scheme in history. It will dwarf anything dreamed of by Bernard Madoff. (It will never rival Social Security, however.)

To explain my position, I must do two things. First, I will describe the economics of every Ponzi scheme. Second, I will explain the Austrian school of economics’ theory of the origin of money. My analysis is strictly economic. As far as I know, it is a legal scheme — and should be.

Are Bitcoin's Better Than Gold? Crypto-Future of Trillion Dollar Digital Trading & Exchange? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: DK_Matai

The price of one Bitcoin -- a mathematically designed digital crypto-currency -- is now within a stone's throw of the price of a troy ounce of gold at more than USD 1,200 per unit. That marks a gain of over 5,000% from the USD 20 level at which Bitcoin was trading at the start of this year. At that time, not many businesses accepted the digital coins as actual currency. Since then, the currency has seen a boom that rivals the dotcom bubble of the 1990s.

Bitcoin Anonymously Genius / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Pravda

Young digital currency Bitcoin has been gaining popularity rapidly. It is believed that it may even make the US dollar move over as time goes by. However, there is one embarrassing detail: the currency circulates on condition of anonymity, which means that it can be used for criminal purposes. Bitcoin is used in transaction of drug traffickers, casino owners and killers.

Bitcoins Tulip Mania i-Bubble Claims First Victim / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nadeem_Walayat

UK broadcast media has been full of the story of how a bitcoin miner threw away his hard drive that reportedly contained 7,500 bitcoins that at today's market price would be worth £4.5 million.

The bitcoin miner, James Howells, was shown at the rubbish tip where his hard drive lies buried under tens of metres of compacted refuse, as James ponders that even if he could find the hard drive, would it have survived several months under a wet rotting mountain of waste.

Of all the topics that readers have pleaded me to write about for months but I never did until now, "bitcoins" are at the top of the list.

In private emails, I stated on many occasions "bitcoins are a scam". I now take that back, "scam" is not the correct word. Others whose opinions I highly respect, state the same thing.

The Bitcoin Money Myth / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Frank_Shostak

Many economists and financial commentators believe that in the unregulated market of the internet economy, new forms of money can be created that bypass central-bank and government supervision. The latest development is the emergence of a new electronic means of exchange, Bitcoin (BTC). Bitcoin was launched on January 3 2009 by its inventor, a programmer called Satoshi Nakamote.

Justin O’Connell writes: As a general rule, if anything is covered en masse by the mainstream media, then I tend to believe that which I am watching is actually one long promotional spot.

The same could potentially be said for Bitcoin as over the past months its popularity has grown so much that “anarcho-capitalist...Libertarian...Freedom Fighter against mankind’s two biggest enemies, the State and Central Banks,” Dollar Vigilante Chief Editor, Jeff Berwick, has been on CNBC, CNN, Fox News, and BBC, and other mainstream outlets.

The Money-ness of Bitcoins / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nikolay_Gertchev

Bitcoins have been much in the news lately. Against the background of renewed concerns about the integrity of the euro zone and the imposition of capital controls in Cyprus, the price of a bitcoin has tripled over the last month and reached more than $141 for 1 BTC. Are we witnessing the spontaneous emergence of an alternative virtual medium of exchange, as some would put it? This article offers an answer to this question by considering three aspects of the economy of bitcoins: their production process, their demand factors, and their capacity to compete with physical media of exchange.

Bitcoin: The Digital Kill Switch / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Shelby_H_Moore

Bitcoin is the first peer-to-peer (P2P) digital currency and payment system to gain significant interest. This month its marketcap surpassed $1 billion.

P2P currencies promise some differences from credit cards, such as increased privacy, no control by authorities, instant signup, lower fees for the merchant, and no chargebacks (buyer at the mercy of the merchant to issue refund if dispute).
