  • “It’s Like Buying A Dream” – Mrs Watanabe And South Korean Investors Fuel Bitcoin’s Meteoric Rise, par Bethel, 4 June 2017

    Sunday 4 June 2017 :: Silver For The People - The Blog » bitcoin :: RSS

    Bitcoin’s 150% surge since the beginning of the year has caught the attention of “Mrs. Watanabe,” the metaphorical Japanese housewife investor, and a legion of South Korean retirees who’re hoping to escape rock-bottom interest rates by investing in cryptocurrencies, according to Reuters.  
    Retail investors in Asia, many of whom are already regular investors in stock and futures markets, are turning to bitcoin in droves. Trading volume on Asia-based exchanges exploded following a Japanese law that officially designated bitcoin as legal currency. And now that the largest Chinese exchanges have reinstated customer withdrawals, the bitcoin market in China will likely stabilize, and the price will likely rise as a result.
    Bitcoin was recently trading in South Korea at a $400 premium to its value on US-based exchanges, in part due to tough money-laundering rules that make it difficult to move bitcoin in and out of those markets, Reuters reports.
    One of the retail traders interviewed by Reuters said she started with bitcoin because she’s worried she won’t be able to rely on her pension.

    After I first heard about the bitcoin scheme, I was so excited I couldn’t sleep. It’s like buying a dream,” said Mutsuko Higo, a 55-year-old Japanese social insurance and labor consultant who bought around 200,000 yen ($1800) worth of bitcoin in March to supplement her retirement savings.”

  • Forget far-right populism – crypto-anarchists are the new masters, par Jamie Bartlett, 4 June 2017

    Sunday 4 June 2017 :: Bitcoin | The Guardian :: RSS
    Many are concerned about the internet’s role in politics. But more worrying is the digital tsunami poised to engulf us, as machine intelligence and a rising tech elite radically restructure life as we know it
    Those who mistakenly thought 2016 was an anomaly, a series of unprecedented events, should have few remaining doubts. Marine Le Pen may have stuttered but still picked up almost 11 million votes. Her opponent, the “normal” candidate, was leader of a party only one year old. The ongoing terror attacks, fake news panic, Trump’s tweets and James Comey: last year never really ended, it just carried straight on into this one.
    After decades of exaggerated prediction, the internet is finally transforming politics, but not in the way the digital prophets expected. The 90s, you may recall, were awash with optimism about our online future: limitless information and total connection would make us more informed, less bigoted and kinder citizens. But the internet is an overwhelming mess of competing facts, claims, blogs, data, propaganda, misinformation, investigative journalism, charts, different charts, commentary and reportage. It’s not the slow and careful politicians who have thrived in this busy environment, it’s the people with the shareable cut-through messages. Donald Trump might very well be the first truly social-media politician: his emotion-filled, simplistic blasts are perfect for the medium.
    Crypto-anarchy is taking over the world – millions now unwittingly rely on it for online security
    Digital technology, like bitcoin, is a disruptive force of decentralisation, tearing down settled hierarchies Continue reading... Read more Jamie Bartlett

There will be only 21 million bitcoins created, and as of last month, roughly 16.8 million or... Read more Michael Gray
  • The super-rich are exiting markets for condos, art and other alternative investments, par John Aidan Byrne, 4 June 2017

    Sunday 4 June 2017 :: Bitcoins | New York Post :: RSS
    The globe’s superwealthy — the 1 percent — are driving alternative investments into a new frenzy of hard cash deals. This reallocation of capital into rare art, multimillion-dollar condos, personal luxury purchases, bitcoin and other alternative investments are sending prices to stratospheric highs, according to analysts. The price surges, on the weirdest fundamentals in years,... Read more John Aidan Byrne
