Surprising that there is pretty much nothing here about this yet. It's pretty big news.

From AVN: Paxum Ends Association with Bitcoin Exchanges by Tom Hymes (well-written)

"The virtual currency's volatility and uncertainty are the stated reasons why Paxum’s banking partners demanded the cessation of any association with Bitcoin."

Just a quick shout out:

Metal, code, flesh: Why we need a 'Rights of the Internet' declaration
www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2012/02/201228715322807.html

Quote
Thinking of the web in terms of machinic life is important in practice for three powerful reasons: First, it guides us through the building of political models that encompass the human and the non-human, a politics for radical yet peaceful diversity needed now more than ever. Second, it unveils the ethical dimensions beneath seemingly neutral issues, allowing stronger defence for issues such as sharing and peer-to-peer practices that depend on healthy protocols and healthy hardware. Third, it is an approach that operates at any scale, allowing us to have nuanced and yet consistent positions regardless of whether we are debating the microscopic labyrinths of a computer chip (metal), the intangible nature of the BitTorrent or Bitcoin protocols (code), or the global impact of WikiLeaks (flesh).

Indeed. This quote is interesting:

"To get around stringent state regulations, Bitcoin firms might switch from acting as a floating exchange, which TradeHill was, to a fixed rate exchange, Matonis says.

Floating exchanges hold customer funds while they match buy and sell orders. In this sense, they act as financial institutions. Fixed rate exchanges do not. They simply buy and sell Bitcoins like a commodity. Such an exchange would be exempt from state money transmitter regulations, Matonis says."

The process of registering with FinCen as a money services business, and of getting money transmitter licenses from the 43 states that require them, is time-consuming and costly, often running between $750,000 and $1 million.

Each or total?

I have no clue about US law making something illegal is one thing BUT is it even possible to prohibit US customers to send transfers to floating exchanges abroad and receive their payout (at least as BTC, so that they can then convert their coins back to USD via any fixed rate exchange)??

And is that a one time fee or daily?

We call that a "CHANGE" like you see in most countries (not us) on every street corner...

"We are just fools. We insanely believe that we can replace one politician with another and something will really change. The ONLY possible way to achieve change is to change the very system of how government functions. Until we are prepared to do that, suck it up for your future belongs to the madness and corruption of politicians."

Robert Murphy, a prominent economist of the Austrian School talks about Bitcoin in a youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyUNdzLwte4&feature=player_detailpage#t=900s, between about 0:15:00 and 0:31:50. It's the most thorough treatment of the Mises' Regression Theorem with respect to Bitcoin from a professional economist that I know of (I've been thinking about this for months and my opinions are very close to those of professor Murphy). He mentioned Bitcoin in the past as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsciXd1EH50&feature=player_detailpage#t=1437s.

Just to explain where he's coming from, Professor Murphy as well as the rest of the Austrian School criticise the production of money through the central banking and government interference in money (e.g. legal tender laws), and most of them are sympathetic to money that has an inelastic supply and an economy with a falling price level (i.e. what colloquially is referred to as deflation). George Selgin (whose draft paper that refers to Bitcoin was published two weeks ago and was mentioned on the forum here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=62659.0) as well as Detlev Schlichter (who wrote about Bitcoin in June, mentioned here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1958.msg314375#msg314375 and was at the Bitcoin conference in Prague) also belong to the Austrian School.

gibt's einen thread wo wir das passend dikutieren könnten? Ist vielleicht nicht viel dazu zu sagen, aber vielleicht doch... die Sache mit dem "Regression Theorem" ist mir jedenfalls nicht ganz klar.

Vielleicht könntest du nen thread machen für dieses video und dann diskutieren wir das? Was meinst du?

More accurate translation:

Do we already have a thread going where we could discuss this topic appropriately? Perhaps there's not much more to discuss, but maybe there is ... I definitely still don't quite understand the "regression theorem".

Maybe you could create a new thread just for this video so we can discuss it? What do you think?
