Cryptocurrencies: The New Coin of the Realm? The State of Play In 2009, the mysterious and pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto launched Bitcoin, the world's first online cryptocurrency. Backed by no government or hard assets, the currency's value has skyrocketed and plunged repeatedly. And yet, a diverse group of entrepreneurs, businesses and would-be money launders has followed Bitcoin's trajectory avidly. The receptivity indicates a real demand for an Internet-centric medium of exchange, without banks and without fees. Yet the rise of "criminal eBays" like the Silk Road, which allow for the anonymous purchase of illegal items with the cryptocurrency, have also brought the digital cash to the attention of government authorities. Beyond monitoring illicit activity, should regulators have a role in this new financial system? Could Bitcoin-or another cryptocurrency-become a universal alternative currency? Will we ever be able to use a cryptocurrency at our local bodega? Benjamin M. Lawsky Superintendent of Financial Services, New York State Department of Financial Services @BenLawsky http://newamerica.net/events/2014/new_coin_of_the_realm

BITCOINS Gaining POPULARITY in JAPAN New York state's top financial regulator has detailed his plans to regulate bitcoins sometime this year. Benjamin Lawsky, New York's financial services superintendent, said he will issue "BitLicenses" to companies dealing with bitcoins. That would mark the most significant step thus far in the United States to regulate the digital currency. "Our objective is to provide appropriate guardrails to protect consumers and root out money laundering -- without stifling beneficial innovation," Lawsky said at a currency conference in Washington., D.C., on Tuesday. Lawsky said Bitcoin exchanges should have to warn their customers virtual transactions are irreversible, bitcoin values are volatile and they should carefully guard their digital wallet keys. "We've found in other areas of the financial world that strong, clear, concise disclosures are critical to earning the long-term trust and confidence of consumers," said Lawsky. "And virtual currency is no exception." The state of New York might also impose rules on Bitcoin-related money businesses similar to those that govern banks, although it's unclear how that would work. Lawsky's office did not immediately provide additional details. Bitcoin exchanges might also be forced to adopt "know-your-customer" requirements, which force financial institutions to keep an eye on customer behavior and report suspicious activity to law enforcement. And Lawsky is even considering rules for those who use their computers to "mine" and create bitcoins in the first place. The largest obstacle for regulators is that Bitcoin was built not to be regulated. Unlike the centralized U.S. dollar system, where the government has a monopoly control on the production of money and doles it out to licensed banks, the Bitcoin universe is decentralized by design. They're produced by random players around the world. They're transferred seamlessly via nameless digital wallets. Lawsky admits that Bitcoin's unique nature leaves government officials with more questions than answers. "I think that's healthy -- particularly if we are being true to our stated goal of proceeding without any prejudgments," he said. The state regulators' suggestions come after five months of inquiries that started in August. The Financial Services Department has met with Bitcoin experts, law enforcement and academics. It also held two public hearings last month in New York City that drew the attention of 14,000 people who tuned in online from 117 countries. The question now is whether many Bitcoin exchanges would be subject to Lawsky's regulations. The two major Bitcoin exchanges in New York City that would have been regulated are lying dormant. Bitfloor shut down after getting attacked last year. BitInstant's website is down since its CEO was arrested last month for allegedly laundering money to users of online drug bazaar Silk Road. Still, Lawsky believes regulation could add credibility to the still nascent, unstable currency. "If we get those rules right, perhaps we can make New York and the United States a magnet for legitimate, well-regarded exchanges and other virtual currency firms," he said.

Let’s say you want to start a Bitcoin company in the U.S., chances are you’re going to need a Money Transmitter License, or rather 51 of them, because 47 states three territories and the District of Columbia each have their own permitting process for any business that handles money on behalf of its customers. This regulatory maze is thwarting the plans of many Bitcoin startups. "Some [of our] applications have been in for over a year, and we're not able to determine the path forward because it's not a clear process," says Megan Burton, CEO of the Bitcoin exchange firm CoinX, at a May 16, 2014 public hearing of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors' Emerging Payments Task Force. Fred Ehrsam, cofounder of the Bitcoin Wallet firm Coinbase, said at a public event in New York City last month that becoming compliant in just half the states has so far taken his company "two years and cost $2 million." But dealing with the states is just the beginning. Bitcoin firms also have to abide by the rules of the Federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the U.S. Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, which just sent a chill through the industry by fining the the cryptocurrency startup Ripple Labs $700,000 for allegedly violating its rules. "It takes lawyers in each state, criminal background checks in each state, bonds in each state," says Jerry Brito, who's the executive director of Coin Center, an industry advocacy group. "It's a huge barrier to entry." Instead of working to sort out this regulatory mess, government officials are piling on even more red tape. Benjamin Lawsky, New York State’s top financial regulator, has spent the last year hammering out the details of the so-called BitLicense, a new regulatory regime that will apply to virtual currency companies that serve customers in New York. "Right now the regulation of the virtual currency industry is still akin to a virtual wild west," Lawsky said at a public hearing on the BitLicense that was held on January 29, 2014 in New York City. Lawsky points to a slew of recent headlines about drug sales, alleged money laundering, and theft in the Bitcoin world. But these activities are already illegal under existing laws and regulations, and New York already requires that companies obtain a Money Transmitter License. The latest draft of the BitLicense doesn't say whether companies will be required to obtain both. "It doesn't acheive any purpose to require two licenses," says Brito. "When you do the background check for one license, what's the point of doing a background check for another license?" While the final details of the BitLicense won’t be released until later this month, the most recent draft duplicate federal regulations that already on the books. "It has an anti-money laundering provision, which is something that's unprecedented," says Brito. "Anti-money laundering is something...handled at by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network at the Treasury Department. So now if you are a business, not only do you have to file Suspicious Activity Reports and Know Your Customer forms for the federal government, but now you also have to do it for a state as well." "We already have rules against fraud and hacking, so really what we're left with is something that's really onerous and burdensome not just for American companies but for companies all over the world," says Bruce Fenton, who's the executive director of the Bitcoin Foundation. What the Bitcoin industry really needs is for regulators to simplify the rules and processes that are already on the books. Not only would that clear the path for small innovative startups that can’t afford a legal team, it would also leave consumers better protected because companies would be accountable to one agency. "Ideally a small startup could go to one place, wherever that is, and follow clear and simple rules to get licensing," says Brito. "We don't know when the next Facebook is going to come along started by a guy in his dorm," says Fenton. "What if he had to spend $4 million to start that? We never would have seen it. We may not even know what kind of innovations are around the corner if we stifle them before they have a chance to start." 3 minutes and 23 seconds. Written and produced by Jim Epstein.

BITCOIN Exchange Goes BUST Feb 25 (Reuters) - Mt. Gox, once the world's biggest bitcoin exchange, abruptly stopped trading on Tuesday and its chief executive said the business was at "a turning point," sparking concerns about the future of the unregulated virtual currency. Several other digital currency exchanges and prominent early-stage investors in bitcoin responded with forceful statements in an attempt to reassure investors of both bitcoin's viability and their own security protocols. The website of Mt. Gox suddenly went dark on Tuesday with no explanation, and the company's Tokyo office was empty - the only activity was outside, where a handful of protesters said they had lost money investing in the virtual currency. Hours later, Mt. Gox CEO Mark Karpeles told Reuters in an email: "We should have an official announcement ready soon-ish. We are currently at a turning point for the business. I can't tell much more for now as this also involves other parties." He did not elaborate on the details or give his location. Bitcoin has gained increasing acceptance as a method of payment and has attracted a number of large venture capital investors. At a current price of about $517, the total bitcoins in circulation are worth approximately $6.4 billion. Investors deposit their bitcoins in digital wallets at specific exchanges, so the Mt. Gox shutdown is similar to a bank closing its doors - people cannot retrieve their funds. A document circulating on the Internet purporting to be a crisis plan for Mt. Gox, said more than 744,000 bitcoins were "missing due to malleability-related theft", and noted Mt. Gox had $174 million in liabilities against $32.75 million in assets. It was not possible to verify the document or the exchange's financial situation. If accurate, that would mean approximately 6 percent of the 12.4 million bitcoins minted would be considered missing. A statement on Bitcoin's website said, "In the event of recent news reports and the potential repercussions on MtGox's operations and the market, a decision was taken to close all transactions for the time being in order to protect the site and our users. We will be closely monitoring the situation and will react accordingly." The digital currency has caught the eye of regulators concerned with consumer protections and bitcoin's use in money laundering. Benjamin M. Lawsky, Superintendent of Financial Services for the State of New York, said in a statement, that while all of the facts surrounding Mt. Gox are "not yet clear, these developments underscore that smart, tailored regulation could play an important role in protecting consumers and the security of the money that they entrust to virtual currency firms."Lawsky said last month that he planned to issue rules for businesses handling virtual currencies. Mt. Gox halted withdrawals earlier this month after it said it detected "unusual activity on its bitcoin wallets and performed investigations during the past weeks." The move pushed bitcoin prices down to their lowest level in nearly two months. Even with the halt on Feb. 7, Mt. Gox still handled more transactions than any other in the past month. Over the last 30 days, Mt. Gox has handled more than one million bitcoin transactions denominated in dollars, or about 34 percent of activity, according to Bitcoincharts, which provides data and charts for the bitcoin network.

After being bombarded by email requests for months, Freakonomics Radio has finally caved and made an episode about Bitcoin. It’s called “Why Everybody Who Doesn’t Hate Bitcoin Loves It.” The gist: thinking of Bitcoin as just a digital currency is like thinking about the Internet as just e-mail. Its potential is much more exciting than that. Bitcoin is often described as “virtual gold” — as well as everything from a “bubble” to a “Ponzi scheme” to “a haven for individuals to buy black market items.” But what excites some people, like Silicon Valley veteran Marc Andreessen, is Bitcoin’s potential as a new technology that could underlie any number of transactions, well beyond the simple swapping of currency. Andreessen, a Web pioneer, is now on the board of companies like Facebook and eBay. He is not a disinterested observer in the Bitcoin debate: his venture-capital firm Andreessen Horowitz has invested around $50 million in two Bitcoin-related companies, including Coinbase, and Andreessen says they plan to invest much more to enable Bitcoin to go mainstream. Why such confidence? The reason, Andreessen tells Stephen Dubner, is that Bitcoin is “the solution to a fundamental problem in computer science”: ANDREESSEN: One of the things … that’s been missing on the Internet for 20 years is kind of a native concept of money…The ability to very easily pay somebody online, the ability to very easily charge for a piece of content, the ability to very easily exchange a digital title, or a digital key, or a digital contract has just been missing because you have no mechanism for establishing trust. And so Bitcoin basically holds the promise of being the first solution to establishing trust over an untrusted network. Susan Athey, an award-winning economist at Stanford with a background in computer science, is also a big believer in the technology behind Bitcoin; for what it’s worth, Athey advises the company behind Ripple, which is Bitcoin’s top competitor (by market cap): ATHEY: The beauty of a new currency, which is part of a virtual currency protocol, is that what I’m moving from me to you is just an entry on a secure, public ledger. And that public ledger is maintained by a set of computers all talking to each other using a protocol. So I don’t have to worry about some bank giving me an IOU and then giving that IOU and handing it to another bank. Instead, if I make a transaction over the virtual currency, it’s just an entry in the ledger. So I don’t need a middleman. New York Superintendent of Financial Services Benjamin Lawsky, who is leading the charge to regulate Bitcoin in the U.S., tells Dubner that he is concerned about the freedom Bitcoin affords to criminals: LAWSKY: It’s very hard to transport $1 million in hard currency overseas. You can’t just put it in a backpack and get it on a plane very easily. But it is very easy to do that now digitally using Bitcoin. That said, Lawsky is also excited about the possibilities of a technology like Bitcoin, which could bring down all sorts of transaction fees. This may be bad news for traditional banks, credit-card companies, and other fee-seeking middlemen. But, as Lawsky points out, a lot of other people stand to benefit: LAWSKY: Right now, there are thousands and thousands of New Yorkers who work hard every day to send money back home to their families in whatever country they’re from…And right now they’re paying fees for those wire transactions each week at the end of the week, 7, 8, 9 percent. And that’s a lot of money for people who often can’t afford it. A crowd of leading economists, including two Nobel laureates and former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan, have bashed Bitcoin. They’ve expressed alarm about the astronomical rise in the digital currency’s value. Marc Andreessen argues that they are missing the larger point: ANDREESSEN: It’s a little bit like dogs watching TV. It’s like, it’s all very interesting, but like whatever until another dog shows up on screen and then the dog freaks out. Economists, like this stuff is all like, whatever, technology, geek, nerds whatever and then “currency” is the flag. And so the minute the word “currency” shows up, all the economists perk up because if there’s one thing economists are all experts on it’s currency… And they look at it and they say, “Oh my god, people are paying $600 for this thing, it’s just a piece of fake digital currency, people have just lost their minds.” I don’t think that they are looking at the underlying substance. ➤ Google Plus: https://plus.google.com/b/113356460096647194676/113356460096647194676 ➤ Subscriber: https://goo.gl/rQxE4G

About The Nantucket Project The Nantucket Project is one of the world’s great gatherings, each year hosting preeminent thinkers, leaders and innovators in a wide range of fields. We focus on the intersection of art and commerce – one fueled by passion, the other by reason. In every organization – whether it’s a business, a philanthropy or a creative endeavor – those two forces jostle to achieve the right balance. In the process, values are determined. We believe TNP is the only event of its kind that rigorously examines those values.

February, 2015 A series of bank settlements have added more than $5 billion to state coffers for Albany lawmakers to distribute this year—and the influx could be just the start, according to the state’s top bank regulator. Benjamin Lawsky, the state’s superintendent of financial services, said in a City & State TV interview that his office never set out to add to the state’s coffers. Instead, he said, the state Department of Financial Services brought cases and enforcement actions where it felt they were appropriate, leading to settlements with financial institutions such as Standard Chartered Bank. That, in turn, had the unintended effect of sending extra money to the state, including $5.1 billion so far for this year. “I think we have more of those to come in the years ahead,” Lawsky said. “It’s well known that we’re investigating foreign exchange manipulations by some of the world’s largest banks. We have some other sanctions cases coming down the pike.” Lawsky added that it would be difficult to predict how large any future windfall funds might be or when any similar settlements might be reached. He also noted that DFS has increasingly focused on individual accountability as opposed to “huge corporate settlements.” “But in certain cases large fines are warranted,” he said. “So I think over time there’ll be more, but it’s very unpredictable when they’ll happen and how much they’ll be and we’ll just have to see.” In the interview Lawsky also talked about the response to his recent proposals on bank cyber-security and money laundering protections, his working relationship with state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and whether it's time for him to step aside at DFS.

Superintendent of Financial Services for New York, Ben Lawsky, has issued his proposed regulations for a Bitlicence governing Bitcoin businesses. I've warned people repeatedly about the fact that regulators are not our friends -- so the onerous proposal came as no surprise. Many Bitcoiners seemed shocked and caught off guard that the proposal could be so unrealistically strict. Some examples include Bitcoin companies being unable to retain profits in Bitcoin, requirements that small startups hire expensive compliance personnel, requirements that inventors and programmers obtain a license before creating new alt coins, rules which would essentially end mining etc. The regulations are at the core a thinly veiled ban of Bitcoin in New York. These actions didn't surprise me at all. Mr. Lawsky has proven himself to be a corrupt and dishonest political manipulator who is a clear enemy of progress, innovation and this community. So why engage him? (Definitions: Dishonest: not being truthful (eg: claiming he had no knowledge of Charlie Shrem's arrest timing then using it as political theater during his hearings, claiming he would carefully evaluate input from the Bitcoin space then not doing so etc.) Corrupt: dealing in a dishonest manner for personal gain (eg: working with bank cronies to further protectionist policies which greatly harm jobs and Bitcoin, pushing policies which do not have a primary goal of serving the public good....etc.) Political manipulator: using political tactics, media, duplicity, political theater (such as invoking events like the tragedy of 9-11 -which was mentioned in the hearings- and fears of terrorism as the justification for these anti innovation actions when, in reality, all Bitcoin on planet earth has only a fraction of the value we know with certainty was laundered by HSBC for example) Furthermore, his power does not come from competence, knowledge or even an election but from threats of violence. Lets be honest, without the threat of violence (his threat of using his power as an unelected political official to place people in jail for use of math) he would have no standing in this space and most Bitcoin people would have never even heard of him. If Mr. Lawsky had to let his ideas stand on their own merit without force and violence he would be laughed out of every Bitcoin meeting with his proposal that Satoshi should have had a license before inventing a coin. Instead of laughing at him we've made him famous in this community and look to him as some sort of leader simply because he has threatened us with violence. So why deal with him? The extreme and damaging Bitlicence proposal shows that he has no intention of operating in an honorable, fair or even remotely logical manner. Why spend time spinning wheels in an attempt to use logic to show the reasons his plans are bad when he clearly does not care about the merit of his plans? Bitcoin leaders keep seeming to be holding out hope that with just one more white paper or one more AMA or one more legal letter we can get him to see the light. He does not care about right or wrong. He cares about fame and personal gain and his political career and helping his banking cronies by harming Bitcoin. By engaging him we only further this harm. THE ALTERNATIVE What do I propose instead? I do not believe it productive to engage with someone who wishes us ill and who has shown no intention to operate honestly or with reason or the most basic logic. I think that all of the significant advocacy efforts wasted on engaging with Lawsky should be instead spent on PRODUCTIVE activities which are actually likely to yield positive results.

In 2013 some mainstream websites began accepting bitcoins. WordPress had started in November 2012, followed by OKCupid in April 2013, Atomic Mall in November 2013, TigerDirect and Overstock.com in January 2014, Expedia in June 2014, Newegg and Dell in July 2014, and Microsoft in December 2014. Certain non-profit or advocacy groups such as the Electronic Frontier Foundation accept bitcoin donations. (The organization started accepting bitcoins in January 2011, stopped accepting them in June 2011, and began again in May 2013.) In May 2013, the Department of Homeland Security seized assets belonging to the Mt. Gox exchange. The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) shut down the Silk Road website in October 2013. In October 2013, Chinese internet giant Baidu had allowed clients of website security services to pay with bitcoins. During November 2013, the China-based bitcoin exchange BTC China overtook the Japan-based Mt. Gox and the Europe-based Bitstamp to become the largest bitcoin trading exchange by trade volume. On 19 November 2013, the value of a bitcoin on the Mt. Gox exchange soared to a peak of US$900 after a United States Senate committee hearing was told by the FBI that virtual currencies are a legitimate financial service. On the same day, one bitcoin traded for over RMB¥6780 (US$1,100) in China. On 5 December 2013, the People's Bank of China prohibited Chinese financial institutions from using bitcoins. After the announcement, the value of bitcoins dropped, and Baidu no longer accepted bitcoins for certain services. Buying real-world goods with any virtual currency has been illegal in China since at least 2009. The first bitcoin ATM was installed in October 2013 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. With about 12 million existing bitcoins in November 2013, the new price increased the market cap for bitcoin to at least US$7.2 billion. By 23 November 2013, the total market capitalization of bitcoin exceeded US$10 billion for the first time. In the US two men were arrested in January 2014 on charges of money-laundering using bitcoins; one was Charlie Shrem, the head of now defunct bitcoin exchange BitInstant and a vice chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation. Shrem allegedly allowed the other arrested party to purchase large quantities of bitcoins for use on black-market websites. In early February 2014, one of the largest bitcoin exchanges, Mt. Gox, suspended withdrawals citing technical issues. By the end of the month, Mt. Gox had filed for bankruptcy protection in Japan amid reports that 744,000 bitcoins had been stolen. Originally a site for trading Magic: The Gathering cards, Mt. Gox had once been the dominant bitcoin exchange but its popularity had waned as users experienced difficulties withdrawing funds. On June 18, 2014, it was announced that bitcoin payment service provider BitPay would become the new sponsor of St. Petersburg Bowl under a two-year deal, renamed the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl. Bitcoin was to be accepted for ticket and concession sales at the game as part of the sponsorship, and the sponsorship itself was also paid for using bitcoin. Less than one year after the collapse of Mt. Gox, Bitstamp announced that the exchange would be taken offline while they investigate a hack which resulted in about 19,000 bitcoins (equivalent to roughly US$5 million at that time) being stolen from their hot wallet. The exchange remained offline for several days amid speculation that customers had lost their funds. Bitstamp resumed trading on January 9 after increasing security measures and ensuring customers that their account balances would not be impacted. The bitcoin exchange service Coinbase launched the first regulated bitcoin exchange in 25 US states on January 26, 2015. At the time of the announcement, CEO Brian Armstrong stated that Coinbase intends to expand to thirty countries by the end of 2015. A spokesperson for Benjamin M. Lawsky, the superintendent of New York state’s Department of Financial Services, stated that Coinbase is operating without a license in the state of New York. Lawsky is responsible for the development of the so-called 'BitLicense', which companies need to acquire in order to legally operate in New York. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

We start off the video talking about the partnership between American Express and Ripple. We also talk about the ripple price and we go over the price history of ripple. I give my thoughts on why Ripple can potentially at least rise to its all time high of $0.40 and that we could possibly see $0.50 ripple. A lot of this depends on the continued development of ripple, ripple partnerships made in 2018, and how many new banks adopt ripple. Ripple is cheaper and faster than traditional international payments and it makes a lot of sense for banks to use the Ripple protocol. Can ripple reach $1.00 in 2018? We'll have to wait and see.

Bruce Fenton, founder of the Bitcoin Association (bitcoinassociation.org) speaks at Liberty Forum 2014 in New Hampshire. He is also founder of Atlantic Financial, the first full service investment firm on the internet in 1994. Please also follow Bruce on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/brucefentonpage Bruce compares the invention of bitcoin to the invention of the internet. Liberty Forum is an annual conference celebrating Liberty, the Free State Project and New Hampshire. This speech explains the origins of Bitcoin and discusses Bitcoin as an invention and not just a currency. Bruce explains that Bitcoin solves the age old question of "how to eliminate the third party" and that the actual currency that is Bitcoin, is a small part of this larger picture. Bitcoin the invention is a new thing, never been done before in human history has it been possible to transfer something of value like currency, to another party with absolute certainty without having a trusted third party. Its so ingrained in our consciousness that we need a trusted third party, such as central banks. If I say, why do you have money at your bank? where the bank can go under, a state or federal agency can seize your money, why would you trust it? For 1000 years, we've had to. Email is an example of a superior electronic alternative to paper mail. Trusted third parties serve to validate that we have the money we say we have. With bitcoin, tech has given us a cryptographic math problem that says we have the money we have. A decentralized ledger with every transaction that has ever happened that everyone has access to. We no longer "have to" use a bank due to this invention.The ability to transfer money instantly simply based upon math. You trust cryptography and not a third party. The currency is relatively small right now. All the bitcoin on earth is worth less than half of whatsapp. Because it is decentralized, they don't need anyone's permission to start a bitcoin company or app. For the first time a rich guy can be on the same platform as a poor person, as they don't need a smartphone, they can print out a bitcoin key. There is a hard cap of $21 million bitcoin and the total value of all the bitcoin is less than $10 billion dollars. The way they are mined/released in the system is by solving a complex computer problem. Every transaction is on a decentralized list called Blockchain. A service that provides a wallet, etc.Within the bitcoin community there is debate over how much regulation they should have, or not have. It is Bruce's hope that the regulators won't be too overwhelming. A hardline against bitcoin in this country will be someone else's opportunity. America is not a capitalist company anymore. We're losing opportunity to other countries.
