He mentions Bitcoin being used for settlement between payment systems like Alipay and SEPA:






What he doesn't mention is settlement between central banks, instead of gold.

hey cypherdoc, I appreciate your recent posting of related news items in here.

I think it would add tremendous value if you pasted the title of the news item.

I'll try but these days I'm working more and more off my android and the copy paste function is still cumbersome & buggy.

Spain says to charge tax of 0.03 percent on bank deposits

I already explained how irrelevant that news is, unless now you are reporting on every <0.1%GDP tax hike in every OECD country. This has nothing to do with the 20% Cyprus levy or anything like that.

Shouldn't be surprising, but Coinbase is involved with browser fingerprinting.

How is it irrelevant? Any tax on deposits is preposterous no matter what country you're from.

What he also doesn't mention is that individuals can use bitcoin as a settlement mechanism directly and bypass both middlemen.  But then where would Stripe fit in?  It wouldn't.  That's why they don't mention it.

Maybe they know this is a possible outcome but figure the legacy networks will start using bitcoin first.  I doubt that.  I think individuals and companies will use it first.  They already started.

This movie looks fantastic.  And it being released after the Snowden revelations and during the bitcoin boom seems like ideal timing to get the public thinking about cryptography.  If the film covers the treatment of Alan Turing after the war, then it may get viewers to reflect more deeply about the horrendous acts caused by big government when they think "they know what is best for people."

Passed btc to another finance guys iPhone last night at a dinner table of 8. Even the wives got quiet when I did this for the men. Made a big impression and the skepticism is decreasing significantly amongst these people.

I also made the point that because I was using my vpn to connect with Sweden, that the btc were traveling 11000 mi before landing in his phone. It took 10 s. I only sent him 60c worth but emphasized there is no other payment services that could do that. His words were "that's amazing". So happy that Apple opened back up.

Looks like ghash is effectively neutered. And if not, get out at 41%.

The study found that even when 80% of the population favored a particular public policy change, it was only instituted 43% of the time.

Having a bitcoin wallet available in the appstore makes it very easy to demo bitcoin when at parties and pubs.  

May I ask what wallet you are using?  I personally use the blockchain.info iPhone wallet, but last time I checked it's still not back.  I've missed a couple opportunities to demo bitcoin now just because I'm not familiar with any of the wallets currently in the appstore.

Student loan system is almost financially unworkable, say MPs

http://www.theguardian.com/education/2014/jul/22/student-loan-system-financially-unworkable-mps?CMP=twt_gu

there are student loan bubbles everywhere waiting to pop. Note how the MP's push the problem off to the next electorates.
