Issue 1 — New York unveils Bitcoin license rules — As expected New York State is leading the way in Bitcoin Regulation, with the goal of creating an exchange where users could never lose their money except through trading fees and losses — but at the same time not having the rules be “so burdensome or unwieldy that the technology can’t develop.” That last part is a direct quote from SuperNintendo Lawsky. Has the NYDFS done succeeded in their goals?
Issue 2 — Bitcoin and Business — Choose your own story —
Bitcoin Business is booming at Cheap Air where they’ve sold more than .5 Million dollars in flights, hotels and even train bookings at CheapAir.com
Not if, but when. Not now, but soon. The deck is stacked and e-commerce in general is preparing to go the full bitcoin with Japanese super giant Rakuten perhaps leading the way.
And in Lighter News, Bitcoin Search Result Fixing — Did a mining company really buy Buttcoin.org to transform a negative article? Turn a piece of shit into a piece of sexy?
Issue 3 — Vericoin Hacked — MintPal had too much Vericoin in their hot wallet and got hacked — hard. The problem is, the exchange lost more than 30% of the available Vericoin on the market and Vericoin is proof of stake. There could now very easily be a 51% attack. It was then the devs decided to fork the blockchain to return the coins to MintPal. Did the Vericoin devs do the right thing? Is Vericoin decentralized? Is this idea coming to bitcoin soon?
Issue 4 — And now Local Bitcoins — which is pretty much illegal now in New York State — oooo. low blow.
