Author Bill Barhydt is an advisor to Vaurum, which just secured $4MM in venture funding. Very well written, as he actually has a grasp on his subject. "Vaurum runs an exchange that facilitates over-the-counter bitcoin trading for institutional traders."

Great to have the money magicians coming on board. As they dip their toes into the pools they can pass along the tips to their CNBC viewers and they can bring up the rear on the next wave. Yep, I'm having one of those days today.

Why do you think the function of Bitcoin "means of accumulation" is more important than function of Bitcoin "means of payment"?

The Ripple currency, known as XRP, can be used to represent any form of asset, such as dollars, pesos and even bitcoin itself.


This is actually incorrect.

The Ripple protocol can be used to settle EUR to USD directly, without touching XRP. Ripple is a currency agnostic, decentralized settlement protocol.

Ripple is a scam. The coins are centrally controlled. It is NO different than fiat. Ripple is an attempt by Google, a few other companies and large banks to slow the adoption of p2p digital currencies like bitcoin. It's also an attempt to muddy the water for average consumers.

Ah, the tinfoil hat is heavy on this one. Regardless of what Ripple is, it doesn't seem to be working out so well...

Having the Wall Street people interested in Bitcoin will have its own advantages (ease of adoption, lobbying.etc) as well as its own disadvantages (such as market manipulation).  Grin

If it gets them talking about it I will take it. I am hearing more and more bit coin talk on financial shows.

That is, if these people favor mainstream adoption for Bitcoin. I am a bit more skeptical about this whole thing. Let's not depend anything on anyone. If the Wall Street guys are supporting us, then it is good. But overall, let's not depend too much on them.

This thing will take off with or without them. The thing that could be powerful is the amount of fiat they would melt into bit coin. It would be just a tremendous transfer of government power to the people.
