Last summer, London’s first invite-only Bitcoin conference saw a room packed full of VCs, entrepreneurs and journalists on the 39th floor above Canary Wharf, at the heart of London’s fintech district. By their own admission, many of those attendees were there to find out for themselves why the crypto-currency was grabbing the tech headlines.

Not least was Passion Capital’s Stefan Glaenzer who openly described himself as “totally clueless” and “on a learning mission” regarding Bitcoin. Another attendee that day was Transferwise founder Taavet Hinrikus who, in a call with me a few weeks later, likened Bitcoin to the early days of music filesharing service Napster. It may not shake out to be the future of online money, but its foundations point the way.

According to TechCrunch, Coinfloor is associated with a well known Nefario of GLBSE infamy, so personally I would not touch it with a 100 foot pole:

Also of interest is that, while the UK startup is founded by Mark Lamb and Amadeo Pellicce, one of its team members is James McCarthy (aka Nefario) who was previously involved in Global Bitcoin Stock Exchange, which controversially shut down last October.

Very unfortunate association to have, very counter productive when you're supposed to trust your coins to these people.
