Bitcoin - The Currency of the Internet
A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

Any suggestions on how a small bitcoin related startup use Ravencoin asset?
Hello all, So I have a small related Bitcoin startup (That doesn't generating any income perhaps in the future it will) One idea is to issue tokens so people can become shareholders of my startup and send them dividends and messages of progress. What else can you suggest that I can do with Ravencoin?
Hello! My name is Tim and I've started a new site called Coin Report. My goal isn't to always have a bunch of breaking news but rather have a site with longer-form interviews, editorials and more regarding Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. I've been wanting to write some pieces for the community for a while now and am hoping to find some people working on interesting Bitcoin related projects. If you are working on a Bitcoin related project please take a moment and leave a comment telling us all briefly what it is and I'll message you soon to talk about maybe writing a piece!
[SERIOUS] I want to create a bitcoin related startup
What rules and regulations do I need to be aware of before I create something, be it a service, web, desktop or mobile application. For instance if I create a website that allows people to do small jobs for bitcoin by using bitpay or coinbase as the payment gateway, would this be considered an escrow service and therefore would require me to obtain an MTS/Money Exchangeescrow license(s)? Obviously this is just an example and a specific idea would need to be fleshed out before any real license issues need to be addressed but what should I as a single developer stay away from as far as industries are concerned? Bottom line I do not have the funds to fight any court battles that should arise nor the funds to get into MTS/Money Exchanger or escrow licenses. I have a few ideas on where I might want to go, but if you guys have any pressing ideas that would reduce friction in your industry that bitcoin/Bitcoin could solve or just general ideas on apps that you wish existed feel free to let the ideas flow.

Paul Wasensteiner (aka Singularity). I have been a Bitcoiner (now Casher) since mid-2011 when I discovered Bitcoin shortly after the first $30 price bubble. Since then, I have been highly active in the community, although it wasn't until this year that I dove into Bitcoin full time. I started the BTCforks initiative last year with Freetrader, which was a precursor to the Bitcoin Cash initiative. Until recently, I spent my time in the community trying to correct misinformation and educate newcomers. After Bitcoin Cash successfully launched, I decided to make a positive change and instead put my energy into pushing Bitcoin Cash forward. I have a wide range of experience and expertise, and have had two businesses of my own in the past. I am working towards changing the world for the better, and I feel Bitcoin Cash is one way of achieving this. I launched the Bitcoin Cash Fund initiative on 14th, November 2017 to expand Bitcoin Cash adoption.
Ian Descôteaux (aka checksum0/FractalGlitch). Ian found out about bitcoin on January 3rd, 2010 after reading a piece on it. He spent time CPU and GPU mining, both solo and with Mining Team Reddit and Slush. After a break from Bitcoin, he reinvested in mining when the Bitmain S1 was released, and has kept this endeavor going ever since. It was at this time that fees started to increase and he realised that this may become an issue in the future. Today he owns and operates a private 4 MW mining facility in North America. Bitcoin Cash is the plan he signed up for when he first got into the bitcoin space.

I recently listened to the podcast Freakonomics did on Bitcoins (you can listen to it here) and am now hooked on Bitcoin-related startups. What sort of Bitcoin startups are VCs investing in now? I'd love to do some research and see what's on the horizon within this realm.
Kevin Werbach is a Professor of Legal Studies & Business Ethics at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and the author of “The Blockchain and the New Architecture of Trust,” from which this article is adapted. _______ In 2015, New York became one of the first jurisdictions in the world to adopt a regulatory regime for cryptocurrencies. The Department of Financial Services began requiring virtual currency businesses to obtain a “BitLicense” in order to operate or serve customers in the state. “We want to promote and support companies that use new, emerging technologies to build better financial companies,” said then-New York Superintendent of Financial Services Ben Lawsky, when announcing the rules. He continued:
“Regulators are not always going to get the balance precisely right…. But we need to begin somewhere.”
Perhaps. Yet Lawsky picked the wrong somewhere. And he moved fast to formalize rules governing what was still, in 2015, a small-scale and fluid cryptocurrency community. Bitcoin entrepreneurs and technologists argued that the threat of overbroad regulation, and the costs of compliance, would chill startup activity. More than 4,000 comments were filed on the draft rule, most of them critical. And when the regulations went into effect, a substantial number of Bitcoin-related startups left New York, including the exchanges Kraken, Shapeshift, Bitfinex, and Poloniex. “The ‘Great Bitcoin Exodus’ has totally changed New York’s Bitcoin ecosystem,” declared the New York Business Journal. Three years after the Great Bitcoin Exodus, the crypto-native exchanges have not rejoined the New York startup scene. But other firms have. R3, the financial industry distributed ledger consortium with over $100 million in funding, is headquartered in New York. As one might expect, so are a number of finance-focused blockchain startups such as Digital Asset Holdings, Symbiont, and Axoni. Pillars of Wall Street such as Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, and the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange are getting into the action. And the activity is not limited to financial services. Consensys, a venture development studio building around Ethereum technology, grew from 100 to over 400 employees during 2017 alone in its Brooklyn headquarters, and is working on dozens of innovative projects around the world (though it recently announced significant layoffs). Blockstack, a high-profile startup hoping to build “a new internet for decentralized apps” on blockchain foundations, is located in New York as well. The New York bitcoin and ethereum meetup groups each have over five thousand members. The BitLicense, for all its flaws, did not kill off cryptocurrency activity in New York. Neither did it create the model for regulatory innovation its creators intended. Subsequent jurisdictions developing cryptocurrency regulatory frameworks explicitly distinguished their policies from the overly restrictive elements of the BitLicense. for more story...https://www.coindesk.com/why-you-shouldnt-fear-the-blockchain-regulators
From Dan Primack at Fortune: Bitcoinana: In September we discussed how SecondMarket had launched the first U.S.-based investment vehicle dedicated exclusively to Bitcoin, called The Bitcoin Investment Trust (beating out the Winklevii, who remain stuck in regulatory limbo). Now comes word that Fortress Investment Group is prepping its own Bitcoin fund, which likely will be much larger than the SecondMarket offering. Details remain scarce, although there are some rumors that some info could be revealed tonight at the Bitcoin New Year’s Eve Bash down on Broad Street (yes, this is an actual thing). But it is worth noting that Fortress earlier this year acquired Koru Ventures, a provider of patent-backed loans to tech companies, in order to launch an IP finance group. Among Koru’s principals (and new Fortress employees) was Steven Waterhouse (ex-CTO of RPX Corp.), whose LinkedIn profile yesterday said that he had just become a partner on an unnamed Bitcoin fund. After I sent Waterhouse an email requesting more info – and also placing a call with Fortress – the Bitcoin mention disappeared from his LinkedIn page (replaced only with “TBD”). My understanding, however, is that the Fortress effort will be something like a currency ETF (similar to Bitcoin Investment Trust), but that Fortress also may raise a separate vehicle to back Bitcoin-related startups. And there likely is some relationship to a new Bitcoin-related fund raised by Pantera Capital, a San Francisco-based hedge fund whose clients are known to include several Fortress executives. Pantera founder Dan Moorehead declined to discuss his Bitcoin efforts or relationship to Fortress – including if his effort and the Fortress fund were one in the same – but an SEC filing indicates that he already has raised around $150 million, and Pantera recently participated in a VC round for crypto-currency payment network Ripple Labs. Moreover, calls to Pantera’s main number are now met with a voicemail that only identifies the firm as “Pantera Bitcoin.” UPDATE: Official link: http://finance.fortune.cnn.com/2013/12/31/fortress-is-forming-a-bitcoin-fund/
