Bitcoin Beat: Is it time to privatize money?

Matthew DeBord
2011-12-14

http://www.scpr.org/blogs/economy/2011/12/14/4009/bitcoin-beat-it-time-privatize-money/

Have studied Bitcoin and the Bitcoin culture — or subculture — for a while now, I'm impressed at Bitcoin's resilience. It might not be the cyber-currency that knocks off the Almighty Dollar. But even the dollar ever does go down, Bitcoin will have had something to do with it

GOOD AS GOLD? PRIVATE MONEY IS BETTER

David Barker Ph.D
2011-12-13

http://www.thecypresstimes.com/article/News/Opinion_Editorial/GOOD_AS_GOLD_PRIVATE_MONEY_IS_BETTER/53906

Nobel Prize winning economist Fredrick Hayek advocated privatization of the money supply as early as 1978. Barry Eichengreen, a respected, mainstream scholar of international finance recently wrote that “maybe the Tea Party should look for monetary salvation not to the gold standard but to private monies like Bitcoin.”

This author doesn't seem to understand that Bitcoin is a payment substrate upon which almost anything can be built. If such properties as he describes are really desired for particular markets, they can be constructed as an overlay.

Why payments won’t ever be anonymous

Felix Salmon

http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/12/16/why-payments-wont-ever-be-anonymous/

"The future of payments, then, is likely to be highly personalized and reversible — exactly the opposite of the anonymous and irreversible protocols built into Bitcoin. And that’s one big reason Bitcoin is not going to be a long-term success."

Some people have trouble understanding that i'ts easy to use an anonymous system in nominative mode and not the other way around.

The same people usually do not undestand either that we can have trusted third parties in a decentralized system (escrow, hosted wallets etc) but that we cannot turn a centralized banking system in a decentralized network like bitcoin.

Just a passing mention of bitcoin in Business Insider

A Quick Trip Inside Peter Thiel's Dream World

Matt Rosoff
2011-12-16

http://articles.businessinsider.com/2011-12-16/tech/30523955_1_work-visas-ocean-liner-singularity-institute


But overall, the night had an almost wild-eyed science-fiction feel to it. Some moments that stuck out:

I spoke to Seasteading president Michael Keenan for a few minutes about his group's dream of building a floating island off the cost of San Francisco and filing it with startups manned by workers who can't get full-time U.S. work visas. The group is working to buy a decommissioned ocean liner to park 12 miles off the coast of San Francisco, and has thought about issues like currency (U.S. dollars at first, but perhaps something like Bitcoin eventually) and a possible global economic downturn (it would reduce the pool of potential investors, but ocean liners would be really cheap!) But he admitted that they're still a long way from actually launching something that a reporter could actually tour and see. Maybe in 2013.

Solid BitCoin Consolidation Finally Bears A BitCoin Breakout

Trace Mayer,J.D
2011-12-19

http://www.runtogold.com/2011/12/solid-bitcoin-consolidation-finally-bears-a-bitcoin-breakout/

Watching this breakout and ensuing upleg in BitCoins is going to be exciting. Since the last rally in June there have been real life applications developed from mobile payments to massive online stores with hundreds of thousands of items, entrepreneurs have stepped in to accept BitCoins as payment, the client has been greatly improved, exchange security has been enhanced, with proper privacy hygiene your cryptographic hash is more secure than even a gold coin and more people understand what BitCoins are, how they work and why they want some.

Ars Technica revisits its October "Bitcoin implodes" story:

Quote
We thought Bitcoin's value would continue to collapse, but so far that hasn't happened. Instead, after hitting a low of $2, it rose back above $3 in early December, and on Monday it rose above $4 for the first time in two months. It's impossible to predict where the currency will go next, but at a minimum it looks like the currency will still be around in 2012.

This presents a bit of a puzzle for Bitcoin skeptics. The original run-up in prices could easily be explained as a speculative bubble, and the subsequent decline as the popping of that bubble. But if that were the whole story, then the value of Bitcoins should have continued to decline as more and more people lost confidence in the currency. That hasn't been happening.

Link: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/news/2011/12/bitcoins-comeback-should-western-union-be-afraid.ars

They still deem Bitcoin a bad currency because of its volatility but they frame it as a possible metacurrency useful to transfer funds across countries, threatening Western Untion's business model:

Quote
Western Union moved $70 billion across borders in 2010, earning about $1 billion in profits. There's no Bitcoin Inc. to compete directly with Western Union, but the owners of Bitcoins can be thought of as shareholders in a decentralized Western Union alternative. If the Bitcoin network captures a small fraction of Western Union's money-transfer business, the currency's current "market capitalization" of around $30 million could wind up looking downright puny.

Sounds good to me!
