The Death of Paycoin: Employee Video Reveals Internal Chaos

It has been a tough couple weeks for GAW with a $350,000 lawsuit and now an announcement that it and its cryptocoin, Paycoin, has changed from its original iteration. According to a new whitepaper that is being circulated, Paycoin has entered a new stage where it leaves the hands of GAW and is now being held by a consortium of organizations. “The fate of Paycoin is now in the hands of every person and organization that hold coins. With this newfound freedom, we want to exercise our rights to make Paycoin the people’s money and do what is necessary to help the coin thrive,” the Paycoin Foundation wrote on its site. In an open dialogue, many of the parties to […]

The New Stellar Consensus Protocol Could Permit Faster and Cheaper Transactions

Stanford professor David Mazières thinks he has a faster, more flexible and more secure alternative to Bitcoin, MIT Technology Review reports. Two independent reviewers, from Stanford and Cornell universities, agree that the new technology could make digital payments and other transactions cheaper, safer and easier. Alternative blockchains are often dismissed as worthless “me-too” copycats or scamcoins, which, unfortunately, has some element of truth. But Mazières’ approach deserves a place among the serious alternatives to Bitcoin that have been proposed, alongside Ethereum and Ripple. Public digital currency ledgers rely on distributed consensus protocols to propagate valid transactions. In the Bitcoin network, independent nodes (miners) work together without preferential trust relations. In other words, each node implicitly trusts every other node. In […]

Newly Declared European Microstate Liberland Plans to Create Its Own Digital Currency

A group of Czech citizens has declared a new state, the Free Republic of Liberland, in a tiny 6-square-kilometer territory along the Danube River between Croatia and the Republic of Serbia. The Liberland territory is not claimed by either of these two states, which according to the group permits it to declare a new “microstate” in compliance with international law. After the Yugoslav Wars, some borderland territories have been disputed, but this area has remained unclaimed. Liberland was created entirely in accordance with international law because it is based on the no man’s land which was claimed neither by Serbia or Croatia in the process of demarcation, InSerbia News reports. On April 13, 2015 a Preparatory Committee declared the new […]

Industry Consolidation Continues: Brawker Closes Down

Bitcoin marketplace Brawker announced on Tuesday the company would be shutting down due to insufficient growth. The service was one of the first Bitcoin companies to decentralize their bitcoin buying service and integrate multi-signature bitcoin transactions. The announcement follows on the heels of Brawker’s former CEO, Cyril Houri’s, departure from the company earlier this month. The Bitcoin marketplace has been in control of the developers behind the company since. “[O]ur growth rate did not meet our expectations, and the service does not scale as we would have expected to,” read the company’s farewell blog post. Brawker is the most recent development in a string of prominent Bitcoin companies shutting down. Just last week, Buttercoin, a B2B bitcoin exchange operating in […]

In reply to an Australian Senate inquiry, RBA’s representatives said in their opening statement that the limited use of the currency had no discernible impact on competition or risk to the financial system and that digital currencies represent a potentially important development. “Digital currencies represent an interesting development in the payments and financial system landscape,” the RBA opening statement notes. “The concept of a decentralized ledger is an innovation with potentially broad applications for a modern economy.” The Senate inquiry, which is being run by the Senate Economics Committee, has heard from a number of […]
