There has been a longstanding debate within the Bitcoin ecosystem on the concept of regulation and standardization of the industry. There are generally two camps of Bitcoin enthusiasts. One side contends that Bitcoin was meant not to be regulated. The other side wants to work alongside regulators to bring about mass adoption of the digital currency. Currently, it is very easy for a wallet manufacturer to make claims about privacy that cannot be easily checked by the average user. Recent scams and fraudulent players in a rapidly growing industry have prompted both sides to reach a consensus; the industry needs a watchdog to protect consumers. Enter the Watchmen Last March Bitcoin Magazine covered C4’s announcement of a new Crypto Security […]

British Prime Minister David Cameron said that his government intends to ban strong encryption, UK’s leading political news website politics.co.uk reports. In reply to Tory Member of Parliament Henry Bellingham, who asked the prime minister whether the attacks in Tunisia meant it was time companies such as Google, Facebook and Twitter understand that their current privacy policies are completely unsustainable, Cameron said that the security services must always be able to spy on online communications. “Britain is not a state that is trying to search through everybody’s emails and invade their privacy,” said Cameron. “We just want to ensure that terrorists do not have a safe space in which to communicate. That is the challenge, and it is a challenge […]

The crisis in Greece is unfolding so fast that new breaking updates are being published every hour. Yesterday, Greece became the first developed nation ever to default on the International Monetary Fund (IMF). Hours after Greece missed the deadline for its repayment to the IMF, European ministers will meet to discuss the Greek request for a new bailout, BBC News reports. The Financial Times reports that Greek PM Alexis Tsipras seems ready to concede on most outstanding differences between his government and its international bailout creditors. According to a leaked letter sent late Tuesday night to the heads of the country’s trio of bailout monitors, Tsipras is prepared to accept most of the economic reform proposals issued by the European […]

As the world watches nervously, Greece, under pressure from the European Central Bank, takes the serious step of imposing capital controls: Banks are closed, ATM withdrawals are limited and funds cannot be sent out of the country. Capital controls will be in place at least until July 7 after Sunday’s citizens’ referendum that will ask Greeks if they want to remain in the European Union and accept their creditors’ terms. Will Bitcoin benefit from the current crisis? There’s lots of speculation that the rate of adoption of digital currencies may increase more rapidly as a result of the current crisis in Greece. CNN makes the case noting: “The world’s largest Bitcoin exchanges tell CNNMoney they’ve seen a surge of business […]

Yesterday, Bitcoin Magazine reported that Greece had closed its banks and imposed capital controls to prevent financial chaos after the breakdown of bailout talks with its international creditors. The decision came at the end of a weekend that brought Greece closer to “Grexit” – the potential exit from the Eurozone and perhaps the European Union (EU) itself – and confronted Europe with a serious crisis. Today, Jose Pagliery, the author of “Bitcoin – And the Future of Money,” reports on CNN Money that Greeks are rushing to bitcoin. The article includes testimonials from top bitcoin exchanges such as bitcoin.de, Bitcurex, and China-based LakeBTC, stating that they are seeing a surge of business and inquiries from Greece. This is, according to […]
