Original title: Bitcoin-Central secures PSP license
New title: Bitcoin-Central backtracks on PSP claims  (2012-12-10)

A European Bitcoin exchange says that it has secured a license to operate as a payments service provider (PSP), bringing the crypto-currency into the formal economy.
...
Acknowledging that moving into the formal system is at odds with the libertarian ideals of some Bitcoin users, the firm says: "Some people might argue that regulation is a bad thing. We respect this opinion, but we'll have to agree to disagree."

A European Bitcoin exchange has moved to "clarify" claims that it has secured a license to operate as a payments service provider (PSP), bringing the crypto-currency into the formal economy.

Update

Bitcoin-Central has now backtracked on its original claims, revealing that it has not become a registered PSP but will offer the new services thanks to a partnership between its parent company Paymium and Aqoba, which is a registered PSP.

Says a statement: "It is still a big development for a Bitcoin exchange to be able to operate legally within the European regulatory framework. Bitcoin-Central is leading the way in this respect. But we're neither a bank, nor a PSP. And we intend to keep it that way."



Finextra describes itself as:
 "Online community and newswire for the global financial technology sector"
and
"the leading independent newswire and information source for the worldwide financial technology community."

It often reports snippets regarding Bitcoin.

Sucks that their headline is a massive factual error.

Article has been updated - same URL - see OP.

I don't think I like this sort of in-place editing of articles... seems to be rewriting history.
