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…

Bitcoin Price is Predicted to Reach $64000 by April 2018

Creator of the Web Bot Project, Clif High a Bitcoin expert, predicts that the beginning of March is the likely time that we will see another boost in Bitcoin price, just like we saw at the end of last year, where Bitcoin hit an all time high. This applies to the entire crypto space, and not just for Bitcoin. So what makes this price increase different? Previously, we have been seeing what is described as a crocodile tooth, where the price increases and then falls. But the number of investors is set to considerably increase, as cryptocurrencies become more and more mainstream, which will mean that the price will not fall so significantly again. High believes that Bitcoin will hit $64,000 as early as April, and adds that it will go even higher. Although it would be expected that it would see a 30% drop after the initial high, this will still bring that value of the coin to the mid $40,000’s. He even goes as far to say that we might see it reach in the region of $100,000 this y…

Mark Zuckerberg Says Bitcoin Could Come to Facebook in the Future

The technology powering Bitcoin could help improve Facebook in the future, Mark Zuckerberg has said. As part of a commitment to help fix the site over 2018, its founder said that he would look into the use of new technology to stop it being quite so centralised. One of those technologies is Bitcoin, he said, in an ambitious post that suggested Mr Zuckerberg is taking to heart the claims that Facebook is broken. In a long post on his own site, the Facebook founder said that he recognised that the problem with the internet is that it is becoming too centralised, and controlled by a few huge companies that include Facebook itself. That was in contrast to people’s vision that the web could be the perfect way of distributing and decentralising power, he said. “A lot of us got into technology because we believe it can be a decentralizing force that puts more power in people’s hands. (The first four words of Facebook’s mission have always been “give people the power”.) Bac…
