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…
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.

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…
Initial coin offerings, more commonly referred to as ICOs, are an innovative fundraising mechanism in which new projects receive Bitcoin and Ethereum in exchange for crypto tokens that get value if the project turns out to be successful.
As you can see from the infographic below provided by BTXchange, this kind of fundraising opens up a lot of new possibilities for startups. However, there's a big stumbling block that often gets brought up whenever discussions about ICOs take place.
Shortly put, ICOs have no regulation in some countries.
In other words, if you live in a country which has not yet introduced any regulations and invest your cryptos into an ICO that turns out to be a fraud, you have nowhere to submit a complaint, let alone get your money back.
However, many feel like the benefits of ICO by far outweigh the problems that plague this fundraising mechanism. For starters, unlike ventur…
