Is Bitcoin Safe?

You may have asked the question: is Bitcoin safe? on multiple occasions. Should you really think to put your money into Bitcoin? Well, Tim Draper is an investor with renowned opinions about the cryptomarket. He is an avid believer in the positivities of crypto and his bullish position has earned him many followers and detractors. On multiple occasions, his predicted forecasts have proved successful despite adverse scenarios, and this is something to take into consideration. A few years ago, Draper predicted that Bitcoin would increase by more than 10k, a figure that only a few believed possible at the time. His prediction was met in about one year. A month ago, Mr. Draper also predicted that Bitcoin would cost 250k by 2022. Quite a controversial and yet not impossible figure compared to Bitcoin’s previous performance over time. This Thursday, in an interview for CNBC, Tim Draper spoke about the advantages of using cryptocurrencies over the traditional FIAT system. For …

Can I accept bitcoin? Should I accept bitcoin?

Virtual currencies have recently been in the news as a result of the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s ruling that offers and sales of digital currencies are subject to federal securities requirements (there has not yet been any equivalent ruling in the UK). Nevertheless, digital currencies have continued to grow in popularity; Bitcoin, the most widely used, has quadrupled in value since the beginning of the year, as a result of the activity of speculators. The use of bitcoin for transactions has also increased: there are now over 16 million bitcoins in circulation, with between 200,000 and 300,000 bitcoin transactions recorded every day.

Should Bitcoin be used to help countries hit by disaster?

Bitcoin entrepreneurs want to rebuild Puerto Rico as cryptocurrency-fuelled economy. Would that help or hurt the devastated country? Cryptocurrency entrepreneurs have moved to Puerto Rico to build a crypto utopia – initially dubbed Puertopia but now named Sol – where they plan to pay little in taxes. The crypto expats also hope to demonstrate how the city of the future will look with blockchain methods used for most transactions alongside the development of a new digital cryptocurrency. But it’s less clear about whose future – the few or the many – will be the driving force for change on the US territory. Puerto Rico was devastated by last year’s Hurricane Maria and, with inadequate aid from the US, it desperately needs investment to rebuild the island’s infrastructure. Puerto Rico was already facing severe financial difficulty before the calamity. It goes some way to explaining why local authorities are cautiously welcoming the arrival of cryptocurrency entrepreneu…

Las Vegas Strippers Accept Bitcoin via QR Tattoos

There has been a lot of talk recently about the missing representation of women in the male-dominated cryptocurrency ecosystem. While Las Vegas strippers are not the representation some hoped for, they are an example of how bitcoin can help working women control their financial affairs and avoid potential problems with prudish banks. A Las Vegas news show has featured a segment on an adult entertainment venue in the city which enables its strippers to get payments from clients directly via bitcoin transfers. The use of the cryptocurrency was primarily showcased as a privacy enhancing measure (preventing your wife from seeing the payments on the credit card bills) as well as an attraction for affluent bitcoin investors. The Las Vegas strip club is called the Legends Room and we reported about its opening back in May 2017. The local news team interviewed the founder, Nick Blomgren, as well as a number of the adult dancers at the place. They even explained how visitors can u…
