Hi Forum,

a German language article on bitcoin appeared at this month's Datenschutz und Datensicherheit. The electronic full text is available here:

http://www.ismll.uni-hildesheim.de/personen/krohn-grimberghe.html

Among others, the article contains a discussion of the classification of Bitcoin as a unit of account (Rechnungseinheit) and consequently as a financial instrument (Finanzinstrument) in Germany.

Comments and feedback highly appreciated.


With best regards
txcoin

I like it!
Covers everything, is written on a high niveau and well formulated, still compact for the lot of information, and with a clear result.
The only two minor things that came to my mind are:
- Use "Bitcoin" and not "Bitcoins". You pay your bread with "Euro", not "Euros", too ;-)
- The only reference I was missing would be on page 4, "Chum" (of what I never heard of)

This could very well serve as a starter of journalists, who wish to write an article.
Well done!

Agreed, the "Bitcoins" could be changed to "Bitcoin". We will keep that in mind for the next revision.

Thank you!

Actually, to totally go overboard:
Some days ago I read the system is called "Bitcoin", the currency is called "bitcoin".  Cheesy

Yes the system's name is Bitcoin, the unit of account are bitcoins or a bitcoin(singular).

I am somewhat convinced bitcoin are uncountable and shall always be written in singular?
Just like other currencies as well..

We say 10 dollars, not 10 dollar, so I don't know what you mean..
