Bitcoin Panic - Bloodbath on Mt. Gox / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Very briefly: it is our opinion than not having any short-term positions is the way to go.

Panic. This one word sticks in the back of everybody’s mind when assessing what’s been going on in the Bitcoin market for the past couple of days. It might be hard to get one’s head around the fact that the currency was at $900 on Feb. 5, only to almost reach $300 today. The sell-off continues, today coinciding with news of another hacker attack.

Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Exchanges Under Attack / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

If you don’t have time: we still don’t support having any short-term positions.

The news of the day is probably the denial of service attack carried out on major Bitcoin exchanges. Bitstamp, a Slovenian exchange, and BTC-e, a Bulgarian one, have both announced they would experience the same kind of problems that earlier hit Mt. Gox.

Why the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF Is a Game-Changer / Companies / Bitcoin

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: Investing in Bitcoin isn't as easy as investing in stocks - right now.

But the arrival of the Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF - an exchange-traded fund developed by twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss - will change that.

The Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF will make investing in Bitcoin as simple and straightforward as buying shares of any other exchange-traded fund.

Bitcoin Revolution or Trap? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: James_Turk

From Chapter 18 of The Money Bubble by James Turk and John Rubino:

In the Internet's early days there was general agreement that one of the first killer apps would be some form of cyber-currency. Since money was already largely non-corporeal, existing as entries in bank accounts and ready to spend with plastic cards, the next logical step would be to move the whole thing online and dispense with paper and coins and their costly and burdensome infrastructure of banks, regulators and printing presses. The emergence of such currencies would, in this optimistic scenario, consign relics like the dollar and the Fed to history's circular file and usher in an era of trust, stability, and growth similar to what occurred under the classical gold standard.

The central banks are in a race to debase, a trend that's rapidly accelerated over the past decade.

Bitcoin Is Defeating Governments and Making Investors Rich / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: The world's two fastest-growing economies came down hard on Bitcoin in recent weeks.

Dips followed, but ultimately the virtual currency began to slough off the news and continued to gravitate toward a loose, but tightening, trading range.

And as a former senior advisor to a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, I've seen a lot of opportunities to make a killing on technology over the years.

Bitcoin 2014 Bubble Collapse or Dollar Alternative? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Clif_Droke

Is it a bubble or mania destined for collapse? Or can it beat the odds and become a viable alternative to the dollar?

That’s what many are wondering about Bitcoin, the electronic currency which has captured the Internet world’s imagination. Many observers have dismissed the e-currency as a passing fad – a flash in the pan destined to suffer the same fate as break dancing and Beanie Babies. This conclusion is far too simplistic, however. Due to the complexities of the new currency the Bitcoin issue demands a deeper analysis.

Singapore Local Perceptions on Bitcoin's Future / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Keith_Hilden

I have just returned from a very enjoyable trip to Singapore, in which our goal was to determine the sentiments and level of knowledge people had about Bitcoin in order to better determine Bitcoin's future in Singapore. That journey took me to the pulsating central business district of a vibrant Singapore, traditional neighborhoods completely recast in the face of new immigration and rigorous central planning, and the newcomer immigrants and permanent residents where languages like Thai and Japanese punctuate the linguistic air of Singapore accentuated English. What we found out about Bitcoin sharply contrasted with that of what we learned about Bitcoin in Taiwan.

Bitcoin Volatile Elephant in the Room Takes on Gold, Pros vs Cons / Commodities / Bitcoin

By: John_Browne

Ever since President Nixon broke the US dollar's last link to gold, the world has been set adrift on a sea of fiat currencies that have been increasingly debased, serving the interests of governments and financial elites. For the last five years, central banks have imposed near-zero rates of interest that have helped push up stock, bond, and real estate prices, but have made it nearly impossible for savers to receive meaningful returns on bank deposits.

A Trip Down a Bitcoin Mega Mine in Iceland / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Lewrockwell

Tyler Durden writes: Once upon a time, money – in the form of precious metals – used to be literally dug out of the earth. Limitations on the amount that could be mined, and on how much growth could be borrowed from the future (all debt is, is future consumption denied), is why eventually the world’s central bankers moved from money backed by precious metals, to “money” backed by “faith and credit”, in the process diluting both. It was the unprecedented explosion in credit money creation that resulted once money could be “printed” out of thin air that nearly destroyed the western financial system. Which brings us to Bitcoin, where currency “mining” takes place not in the earth’s crust, or in the basement of the Federal Reserve, but inside supercomputers.

Bitcoin - High Tech Fiat Alchemy / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The curious case of Bitcoin and the associated rise of electronic currency has rekindled money and wealth discussions. It has also given rise to the re-birth to a libertarian cyberpunk ideology. In some ways, the response is a natural reflection of the devaluing of paper promises. In others ways, electronic cryto-currency is perfectly positioned to launch into physical metals. In fact, early correlation has been established, despite the overall tight control of the precious metals markets.

Bitcoin's Five Big Advantages Over Gold / Commodities / Bitcoin

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: I strongly believe that everyone should own some physical gold. It's been the store of value, and the preferred method of asset protection for more than 5,000 years. It's irreplaceable.

But I also believe that every investor ought to own at least some of the new digital money known as bitcoin.

You see, most of the people buying bitcoin are interested in the explosive growth potential the new "currency" offers, as more and more retailers, CEOs, and governments embrace it.

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.
