The Royal Canadian Mint explores a Bitcoin alternative

Patricio Robles
2012-04-04

http://econsultancy.com/uk/blog/9530-the-royal-canadian-mint-explores-a-bitcoin-alternative


...

Bitcoin has not only gained more adoption than skeptics could have imagined possible, but it has created a fascinating discussion around how currency will evolve in the 21st century.

...


But the mere interest of an institution like The Royal Canadian Mint in a Bitcoin-like digital currency suggests that within the next decade we could see dramatic change and innovation around 'money' and how we exchange it.

Jerry Brito is a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and director of its Technology Policy Program. He also serves as an adjunct professor of law at George Mason.
...
Moving away from paper notes and coins and toward a digital currency is a no-brainer, at least when it comes to cost and efficiency. But when it comes to privacy and freedom, cash can't be beat. We must ensure that we protect our civil liberties by preserving some untraceable payment method.
...
Imagine if the only way to support unpopular causes was with easily controlled e-money. Certain transactions could be disallowed by law, political pressure or corporate fiat, and anonymous giving would be impossible.
...
The nascent digital currency Bitcoin has demonstrated that such e-cash is possible. Bitcoin employs no user-identifiable accounts, relying instead on public key cryptography, so there is no way to know who gave money to whom. And because no intermediaries are needed for Bitcoin transactions, governments have no intermediaries to regulate.

Süddeutsche Zeitung online/Service section (large national German newspaper): BitcoinsFacebook Credits WoW-Gold

Bitcoins sind virtuelles Geld mit dem Anspruch einer richtigen Währung. Dahinter steht ein Netzwerk von Menschen, die dem Open-Source-Gedanken nahe stehen. Bitcoins werden nicht gedruckt, sondern mithilfe von Computern im Netzwerk berechnet

Short article giving a rundown on what bitcoin is. No value judgement.

Frankfurter Rundschau (online)/Wirtschaft (large regional German newspaper): Onlinewährung Bitcoin weckt Interesse der Finanzwelt
title: Online currency Bitcoin awakens interest of Financial World

Quote
Die Finanzbranche wird auf die Onlinewährung Bitcoin aufmerksam. Die Währung ermöglicht anonymen Zahlungsverkehr und gilt als fälschungssicher. Bei einem Hackerangriff wäre sie allerdings anfällig.
...
Die digitale Währung Bitcoin ist ins Visier der Bankenbranche geraten. Von vielen lange als System von Nerds belächelt, gilt Bitcoin heute einigen als der letzte Schrei.
...
Ein Unternehmen, das mit Bitcoin-Optionen handelt, war jüngst für eine halbe Million Dollar an die entsprechende E-Börse gegangen. [Bitcoinica? Welche E-Börse? Anm. d. R.]
...
Trotz der zunehmenden Nutzung stuft beispielsweise die Bundesbank Bitcoins nicht als elektronische Währung ein. Illegal ist die Internetwährung jedoch nicht - schließlich kann jeder selbst bestimmen, welchen Gegenwert er für eine erbrachte Leistung verlangt. Bankenexperte Simon Lelieveldt glaubt, dass sich die Bitcoins nur für eine begrenzte Zeit auf dem Markt halten werden.

Article resembling and featuring many points made by the recent "Bitcoin, the City traders' anarchic new toy" article by Naomie O´Leary on Reuters. Overally positive about Bitcoin.

BILD/Finanzticker (online) (largest German tabloid): Bitcoins: Banker haben neues Spielzeug
title: Bitcoins: Bankers have new Toy

Quote
TOPMELDUNG – Bitcoins: Banker haben neues Spielzeug: Finanzhändler haben ein neues Spielzeug: Die digitale Währung Bitcoin ist ins Visier der Bankenbranche geraten. Von vielen lange als System von Nerds belächelt, gilt Bitcoin heute einigen als der letzte Schrei. Längst haben Börsianer ihren Gefallen an der unkonventionellen Zahlungsart gefunden und machen Geschäfte mit Bitcoins. Im Gegensatz zu herkömmlichen Währungen basiert diese virtuelle Bezahlmöglichkeit auf einem Computernetzwerk und unterliegt keiner zentralen Kontrolle. Ein Bitcoin ist auf Handelsbörsen derzeit knapp 4,90 Dollar wert. Umrechnungskurse gibt es auch für andere Währungen. Bitcoins können in 15 offizielle Valuta umgetauscht werden.

The above quote is actually the whole "article". The same as the preceding one in the Frankfurter Rundschau, just 4 times shorter.

It's a good article, but ironicly he displays his own economic biases by citing long debunked viewpoints while trying to indirectly support bitcoin with them.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

"Zitty", Berlin.

That's one of the two leading city-magazines of Berlin.

Has a one-and-a-half-pages article about Bitcoin, woven around a report about the bar / restaurant ROOM77. Pretty much explains the most important facts about Bitcoin in non-tech-speak. Actually _very_ non-tech and also quite clueless as the journalist doesn't even understand the difference between IN- and DE-flation. Anyway, bottom line of the article is, that there is a new virtual currency that shifts power away from governments and banks and that the Bitcoin-community sees that as a feature, not as a bug Wink.

Greetings from Berlin!

Joe

The magazine Northwest Mama just had an article in their first issue released today. Their website has the current issue, which as of now has the article on page 42.

http://nwmama.com/

For those who just want a quick summary:

Bitcoin is a substitute for traditional money, not just CCs and checks but Yen, EUR, and USD.

You should set up an ewallet, people can send you money there and you'll generate some for free, it won't make your computer go slow.

Bitcoin is too buggy and won't replace current money for 30 years.

And my own note:

We're going to need Bitcoin education classes in every city within 2 years or there are going to be some confused folks bouncing around.

Please do not think I made that article. I just found it and posted it.

I don't think anyone does, but you have to admit, it was obviously written by someone who didn't do their homework very well.

Still around.

I certainly didn't think that. I appreciate link posting.

Even though that article is pretty flawed I didn't mean to be critical. People, unsurprisingly even writers, are having trouble understanding. I was just pointing that out.

Hey, let's get this straight, I'm the one who originated the term and it's one word, a verb, as in any member of a class of words that are formally distinguished in many languages, as in English by taking the past ending in -ed,  that function as the main elements of predicates, that typically express action, state, or a relation between two things, and that (when inflected) may be inflected for tense, aspect, voice, mood, and to show agreement with their subject or object.; as in being Zhoutonged.

Yep.

It's also out in print. Which is cool 'cause it is lying around in every bar and in every home in Berlin for two weeks and literally everybody in Berlin flicks through it at some point.
