Bitcoin Ponzi Scheme Coming to an End ?

MTGOX and Bitcoins: Not the End, But a Beginning

BITCOIN CRASH as MT. GOX Stops All Withdrawals - ELITE Wants BITCOIN Gone! A temporary halt on withdrawals from the bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox on Friday and subsequent price decline have prompted trading platform SecondMarket to start a pilot program to buy and sell bitcoin, a move it says highlights the need for a major U.S.-based bitcoin exchange. SecondMarket, which made its name as a platform that allowed investors to trade shares of Facebook Inc. FB before the company went public, has established itself in the bitcoin space through its open-ended bitcoin trust. There is no major bitcoin exchange based in the U.S., even as U.S. investors are pouring millions into domestic bitcoin start-ups and U.S. companies are beginning to adopt the virtual currency as payment. Mt. Gox, which is based in Japan, isn't even the largest bitcoin exchange. The largest by 30-day volume is Bitstamp, which based in Slovenia, according to data from bitcoincharts.com. The second-biggest is BTC-e, which appears to be based in Bulgaria. Mt. Gox is third. "The single most important thing that we can do...is get some serious exchanges established here in New York," Circle's Allaire said at the hearing. Circle is a company that aims to make bitcoin payments easier for merchants. There are companies working on establishing bitcoin exchanges in New York, but witnesses at the hearing pointed to the regulatory uncertainty and reluctance from banks to work with bitcoin companies as major hurdles. In recent trade, bitcoin traded at $741.30 on the bitcoin exchange Bitstamp and $763 on Mt. Gox. That's a decline from trading around $900 earlier this week on Mt. Gox and in the early $800s in the same period on BitStamp. Here's a two-month chart of prices on Bitstamp: Russian authorities have issued warnings against using Bitcoin, saying the virtual currency could be used for money laundering or financing terrorism and that treating it as a parallel currency is illegal. Reddit, Virgin Galactic, and Overstock.com now accept Bitcoin. So do dating site OKCupid and travel site CheapAir.com. Game giant Zynga is now in the testing phase. Two big Las Vegas hotels accept Bitcoin. Already, 21,000 merchants are using Coinbase to accept Bitcoin from customers.

Visa has attacked Bitcoin as being less trustworthy than its well-established payment system. JP Morgan Chase has filed a patent for a Bitcoin-like payment system. And Russia's largest bank is working on a Bitcoin alternative as well. Ben Bernanke and the Department of Justice have both cautiously blessed Bitcoin. While crypto-currencies remain insulated from central bank manipulation, governments have thus far been tolerant, perhaps because their capability to track transactions is more advanced than Bitcoin believers admit. Indeed, Bitcoin is not really that anonymous, as the NSA can track Bitcoin trades. Few protests elicit the same collective gasp from the internet as smashing up an iPhone, so the device-mutilating fury of some members of the Bitcoin community has plunged Apple into a new controversy over policies in its App Store. btc china Imagine a world in which you can buy anything in secret. No banks. No fees. No worries inflation will make today's money worth less tomorrow. The digital currency Bitcoin promises all these things. And while it's far from achieving any of them — its value is unstable and it's rarely used — some have high hopes.

  1. american and FMI policies have destroyed any credibility to the us $ the £ and any other fiat currency, on this reality, a new currency must emerge independent of any state, nation bankers conglomerate the FMI and the world bank, the ukraine shuffle is an ideal moment to put this plan in action, relieve the planet of the us$ as a global currency, and restructured as a green bag, us$ for america. the new independent reserve currency can balance the planets fiat currencies control the tax havens and balance the petrol monarchy's as corruption becomes impossible, the NSA will be put to good use surveying bankers and looters, the BREN new world currency is the leverage of all world currencies and any multinational or estate that creates havoc and corruption will see the value of its national currency devalued, as any corporation will see its assets cut in half as it speculates. how: the BREN 25% silver, exist as a leverage and being over all worlds currencies all it does is maintain an equilibrium, not a vault full of gold or petrol, the purpose is a just balance, so the rich dont get to rich and the poor evolve into better standarts, in short multinationals will follow the dictum "ecological dictum" which is called advice of the BREN central banking, no longer the FMI or the world bank, however they the FMI world bank act as managers under the supervision and surveillance of the BREN central bank.
    any interest call i think there is no other choice, due to derivatives and non functional stubborn reasoning of global banking elites, the FED and the lot.
