Porsche Sells For 300 Bitcoins In Latest Sign The Virtual Currency Is Going Kablooey

Posted April 4th, 2013 by paulie

As it is portrayed on FTL, the bitcoin store is all about serving the bitcoin community, i.e. "selling for cost." lol Seriously? The store is selling/gambling on upward valuation. It's not a "charity" type enterprise at all. It hedges it's sales on the hope that what it takes in low bitcoin value will be able to sell back to legitimate currency at a far greater rate.

The Great Cyprus Bank Robbery, by Ron Paul

Posted April 1st, 2013 by porc578

APRIL 2013 - The dramatic recent events in Cyprus have highlighted the fundamental weakness in the European banking system and the extreme fragility of fractional reserve banking. Cypriot banks invested heavily in Greek sovereign debt, and last summer's Greek debt restructuring resulted in losses equivalent to more than 25 percent of Cyprus' GDP. These banks then took their bad investments to the government, demanding a bailout from an already beleaguered Cypriot treasury. The government of Cyprus then turned to the European Union (EU) for a bailout.

Posted March 31st, 2013 by WaxCrax

Already bigger than many sovereign currencies, Bitcoin has broken the $1 billion in value mark this week. In the wake of continuing economic crises and liquidity shortages, this new virtual currency is poised to challenge the euro and US dollar.

Posted March 24th, 2013 by Cyphase

Over the years, Bitcoin has experienced ups and downs; the currency has been targeted by hackers and thieves and botnets and been victim to more than one embarrassing software glitch. But it has persevered, and this week, one can fairly say that Bitcoin came of age. On Monday, the U.S. Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network released its first “guidance” as to how “de-centralized virtual currencies” should fit into the larger regulatory regime under which currencies of all kinds are required to operate.
