Coronavirus Renews Retail Interest In Bitcoin

When In Doubt, Buy Bitcoin

Many new investors may have been scared off by the plunging market, wondering whether this thing can actually be a hedge against the rest of the crazy market. But those who did buy that day, if they bought the bottom (almost as low as $4,100 that day), they’ve nearly doubled their investment by now. Of course, it’s difficult to get up and running on an exchange, along with bank account and such, in a day.

It would seem we can therefore thank coronavirus for one thing: there are new Bitcoiners, spurred into action as a result of changing external events.

Said events may be unique, but they demonstrate one thing: in times of distress, people quickly lose faith in fiat currency.

To be fair, the same might be said of Bitcoin, but there’s a lot that goes into that. To make the statement about fiat, we look to the evidence that on March 13th, searches greatly spiked for “buy Bitcoin.” Look at the chart below.

About That Orange B… The History of Bitcoin’s Logos

Can a logo symbolize the ethos of a project? An industry? An entire movement?

This is perhaps too much meaning to attribute to any one design, but if any logo has come close to the task, it’s that of bitcoin.

Belonging to no corporation, no in-house graphic design team at a shiny Silicon Valley startup, bitcoin’s logo has given the faceless project’s many adherents an image to hold on to. And not only to hold on to – but to emblazon on shirts, stick to laptops and stamp on physical coins – giving the digital project a material existence that has been crucial for its propagation.

Perhaps more importantly, the collaborative development of bitcoin’s unofficial logo framed its encounter with the rest of the world.

In creating a symbol that resembled those of other currencies, bitcoin was visually introduced to newcomers as money. And in elaborating this symbol into a logo that could reside alongside Visa and Mastercard stickers on shop wi…

Crypto Adoption: Another Town Accepts Taxes in BTC

Although we’d love to see it happen in a single day, cryptocurrency mass adoption takes time. Two new examples show that it is indeed inching towards being generally accepted. The Ontario town of Innisfil has announced that they will be accepting cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin first, for property taxes payments during a trial that will last a year. Meanwhile, Sweden-based crypto gift card provider Bitrefill now lets you book AirBnB rentals in the US using five different cryptocurrencies.

Innisfil residents will be able to pay taxes with Bitcoin through a wallet called Coinberry Pay. The funds, sent in Bitcoin, will then be converted to the Canadian dollar and transferred to the town. Ethereum, Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and XRP may follow, according to national news agency The Canadian Press. The trial period for this payment option will last a year, starting in April.

Innisfil, which is a home for 36,000 people, is far from the first jurisdiction to implement s…

You can now Pay your Taxes with bitcoin if you live in Ohio U.S.A

Starting today (26th November), businesses in Ohio will be able to pay their taxes using Bitcoin — making the state the first in the nation to accept cryptocurrency officially. Companies who want to take part in the program simply need to go to OhioCrypto.com and register to pay taxes in crypto. It could be anything from cigarette sales taxes to employee withholding taxes, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal, which first noted the initiative. The brain child of current Ohio state treasurer, Josh Mandel, the Bitcoin program is intended to be a signal of the state’s broader ambitions to remake itself in a more tech-friendly image. Already, Ohio has something of a technology hub forming in Columbus, Ohio, home to one of the largest venture capital funds in the midwest, Drive Capital. And Cleveland (the city once called “the mistake on the lake”) is trying to remake itself in cryptocurrency’s image with a new drive to rebrand the city as “Blockland”. Other …
