Some of the biggest names in the world of Bitcoin, the unregulated virtual currency with a small but devoted user base, are looking to give it a friendlier public face. Announced last week, the Bitcoin Foundation — which counts lead developer Gavin Andresen and Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles among its board members — is meant to do for Bitcoin what the Linux Foundation has helped do for open source software, paying selected developers for full-time work and nailing down best practices. In a letter of intent, Executive Director Peter Vessenes said he hoped the Foundation could legitimize Bitcoin through standardization — a legitimacy that’s sorely needed now.

When was it outlawed, and in which countries? I must have missed all those announcements.
