Jack Dorsey Hopes Bitcoin Will Become The Web’s ‘Native Currency’ – CoinDesk

Jack Dorsey Hopes Bitcoin Will Become Web’s ‘Native Currency’ NEWS May 16, 2018 at 18:03 UTC | Updated May 17, 2018 at 13:13 UTC
Is bitcoin destined to become the default currency of the Internet?
At least one well-known business executive – Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Square, who previously predicted bitcoin’s future dominance back in March – hopes that’s the case. Dorsey sat down with Elizabeth Stark of Lightning Labs at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2018 conference in New York City to talk more broadly about his company’s goals for the digital currency.
“I’m just approaching with the principle that the Internet deserves a native currency. It will have a native currency. I don’t know if it will be bitcoin,” said Dorsey said during Wednesday’s fireside chat, adding:
“I hope it will be bitcoin. I’m a huge fan.”
Dorsey admits the idea that bitcoin will someday be the basis for all payments made on the Internet remains a topic of debate at Square.
“We’ve led with that mindset. But there’s still a lot of skepticism and a lot of debate and a lot of fights. But that’s where the magic happens, where creativity happens,” he explained.
Despite the controversy, Dorsey argues that the vision of open access that bitcoin inspires is fundamental to the role Square has always played in the payments industry. “Any payment that comes across our table, the seller should be able to accept,” he remarked.
When Dorsey first began contemplating how to implement bitcoin payments into the Square platform with Mike Brock, an engineer at the company, the two initially settled on a goal that was grandiose in its simplicity.
Either one of them, he reasoned, should be able to walk over to the Blue Bottle across the street and buy a cup of coffee with bitcoin without the transaction looking any different than a regular dollar-denominated payment, perhaps without the cashier even knowing that bitcoin was being used.
According to Dorsey, the team had a working solution within a week.
“It felt amazing. It felt electric. And it felt like something we needed to explore a lot more,” he said. More work to come
Square has yet to build a full bitcoin payments solution for merchants and consumers, as it quickly changed direction to work on a buying-and-selling service to be integrated into its Cash App. But Dorsey said that the goal is same as it has always been.
“We want to go back to that original idea of being able to purchase a coffee with it. And that’s why we’re working with [Lightning Labs],” said Dorsey. “Whatever it takes to get there, we’re going to make sure it happens.”
Dorsey – who counts himself as a fan of the hacker ethos surrounding bitcoin’s rise to fame – claimed that whatever path Square takes to pushing mass adoption of bitcoin payments, it will do so without threatening the openness of the network.
“There’s so much openness in the community, and I want to make sure nothing in the corporate world threatens that,” he stated, going on to say:
“We cannot risk hurting what made this possible to begin with … We can’t do any of this without the technology being strong and available for everyone.”

In the future, you’ll mine cryptocurrency by dancing

By Alexander J Martin, Technology Reporter
Students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have invented a way to mine cryptocurrency by playing classic arcade game Dance Dance Revolution.
Agnes Cameron and Kalli Retzepi initially created the DDR mat that mines cryptocurrency on a private Ethereum blockchain for a party.
Using the mat “hundreds of dancers” collectively mined about 10,000 blocks – the files which record cryptocurrency transactions and are tied together in the blockchain.
Typically blockchains use complicated cryptographic puzzles which force computers to prove the amount of work they’ve done to process transactions, but the team’s private blockchain makes people dance instead.
By swapping out computer processing for dancing. the team could be addressing significant environmental implications as well as the sedentary lifestyle of the post-automation world.
“We’ve been talking a lot in the group about possible futures that this project could have,” said Ms Cameron.
“One of the ideas that has been passed around is that when robots have taken all the jobs, what are we going to do all day? How will we create value? Maybe it’s through dancing.”
Image: The mat was designed for a party game. Pic: Kalli Retzepi Talking to Sky News, Agnes Cameron said the future-of-work suggestion was a little joke at the expense of “cryptocurrency bros” who have a habit of claiming to have invented “solutions” for post-automation societies.
“There’s a lot of utopianism around cryptocurrencies at the minute – and some of it for good reason – but in some camps there’s this idea that all the world’s problems are going to be solved by blockchain,” said Ms Cameron.
“In general, it’s good to be wary of the claims people make about these technologies.
“Blockchains are a really interesting application for some very specific use-cases, but they’ve also become this crazy buzzword, and you see them getting used in all sorts of useless ways.
“That’s kind of the style of the video is made in: presenting something really patently useless as some grand solution to the world’s problems…”
Ms Retzepi said: “Our aim was to make a game and it’s been quite fun (and also surprising) to see how easily it is being taken literally.”
So why is it being taken literally? Perhaps both students’ engineering backgrounds and their convincing pitch have made the game seem more feasible than it is.
Image: Players mine cryptocurrency by playing DDR. Pic: MIT Media Lab “The dancing is a bit artificial in terms of the network,” said Ms Cameron.
“There’s nothing to stop you, for example, just using the arrow keys on your computer (or, better, just writing a script to play the game for you), but if we wanted to create a system of ‘artificial scarcity’ that really did rely on dancing, then you could use force-meters in the pads or something to ensure someone was actually dancing.
“This sounds silly, but it’s actually not such a wild proposition. All currency systems require some form of scarcity to operate, and with digital currencies that scarcity needs to be imposed artificially: otherwise someone could just declare they owned billions of bitcoin.
“In mainstream cryptocurrencies that gets tied to an absolute number of total coins, but by tying it to a finite resource – in this case, how much dancing someone can do – you can also propose scarcity limits.”
Dance Dance Revolution is also a good suit for the potential cryptocurrency as an “automatic oracle,” she explained to Sky News.

bitcoin: Can India really ban bitcoin? Is it possible at all to do so? – The Economic Times

Can India really ban bitcoin? Is it possible at all to do so? ET CONTRIBUTORS | Updated: May 16, 2018, 05.50 PM IST 0 Comments If you read the RBI circular, they have never used the words “ban” pertaining to bitcoins. By Pareen Lathia Every few months, we hear that bitcoin has been banned by some country or the other. As early as 2013, bitcoin was “banned” by Thailand. In 2017, it was big news when China banned bitcoin and the latest news carries a ban by the Reserve Bank of India . The problem is this news is grossly misleading because it is simply not possible to ban bitcoin, or any crypto currency for that matter. Bitcoin’s price last year was hovering around $1,000 mark whereas right now, it is in the $9,000 range. This is in spite of the all the bans. This does not fit into any market logic. But that is the beauty of crypto currencies. They do not fit into traditional regulatory or banking framework. A different outlook is needed to understand how they work and why they were created in the first place. Decentralisation This is because bitcoin and most crypto currencies that run on Blockchain technology are decentralised. It means they do not run on one server or URL or IP address. These virtual currencies run on multiple nodes that can be owned and run by anyone and are usually spread across the globe. There is no central point for the governments to attack or block. This is very similar to Torrent protocol. It is peer-to-peer. At the simplest level, if I hold bitcoin in my wallet and transfer it to your wallet, there is no way any government can block it because this entry of transfer is recorded in a distributed ledger. What has RBI done? So, what is this ban? If you read the RBI circular, they have never used the words “ban” pertaining to bitcoins. It has only prevented any organisation regulated by the central bank to deal with businesses that have anything to do with crypto currencies. Practically, this means banks will have to stop deposits and withdrawals to and from Indian rupee on crypto currency exchanges. This news spread widely and was seen as a “ban on bitcoin”. Apart from this, the RBI has issued several warnings about scams and risks related to crypto currencies. It had also said there would be a crackdown on the illegal use of such cryptos. But traders are still buying and selling crypto currencies under a three-month notice period that was issued to all exchanges. Even after that, the RBI or the government cannot technically ban bitcoin. Also, in the latest event, the Delhi High Court has already challenged this circular calling it “unconstitutional” and the apex bank has to present the basis of this restriction on banks to the court. Practical implications Other countries like China and the US have already tried banning exchanges, ICOs and mining of crypto currencies. Although those events in 2017 caused the price of bitcoin to fall temporarily, it went on to peak at $19,783 on December 17. Since most of the trading happens on international exchanges, banning Indian bourses will only make Indians buy crypto currencies from foreign sources or OTC (over the counter) options because it is simply not possible to track buying, trading or selling of crypto currencies. Bans in other countries like Japan have also resulted in exchanges moving base to countries with friendlier macro environments like Malta and Estonia. This has only resulted in loss in terms of taxes for the governments of hostile countries. For everyone who is holding any coins, they would transfer it to a wallet or an international exchange and then sell it for USD and convert USD to INR. This just hurts India because we will not even be able to tax this income if this is done in cash. Also, such a scenario exists only until the time enthusiasts can’t buy much with crypto currency. But there are sites that are already accepting crypto currency as a mode of payment. As more tokens emerge and have real usage, it will be difficult to keep them at bay. With bitcoin, we have seen the Streisand Effect in play – which means the more governments try to ban it, the more popular it gets, the more news, the more coverage. Regulation The only way to go about this saga is regulation, where checks are in place to ensure customers aren’t duped, taxation on profits and an era where exchanges follow KYC norms and legal compliances are in place. That would make it much safer for Indian citizens to buy, trade and profit from this revolution and be educated about its risks. In February 2018, the US government has called for inter-departmental cooperation and allocated resources with the aim to create new legislation to govern virtual currencies. There is also an opportunity for our country to become the Switzerland of the next century. If one government were to reduce taxes from trading of crypto currencies, the amount of crypto money to come in that country would be mind-boggling. This may seem like a pipedream, but Malta is already going down this path and attracting major Blockchain players, including the largest international exchange at this time with profits of more than 200 million USD – more than profits of many traditional banks. Every government wants to ban it because it undermines the power of Fiat currency – US dollar, Indian rupee and the like. But every government has tried and failed and in 2018, it is accepted that there will be regulation rather than bans. The point of creating bitcoin A lot of believers of bitcoin see it as a way to liberate ourselves from the control of governments and the financial system. The point is to eliminate the need for printing money and more importantly, banks. So, banks moving out of the equation is a cause for celebration in the community rather than seen as a bad thing. As countries grapple with regulation and laws, the crypto currency market cap keeps soaring every year. As they say, nothing is more powerful than an idea whose time has come.

NY Grants Fifth-Ever BitLicense to Crypto Exchange Genesis Global Trading – CoinDesk

NY Grants Fifth-Ever BitLicense to Genesis Global Trading NEWS David Floyd May 17, 2018 at 16:00 UTC | Updated May 17, 2018 at 19:59 UTC
Genesis Global Trading has obtained a BitLicense from the state Department of Financial Services (DFS), making it only the fifth firm in three years to receive the controversial license.
The cryptocurrency market maker, based in New York City, and DFS announced the news in separate press releases Thursday.
In the regulator’s release, New York financial services superintendent Maria Vullo said, “New York continues to lead the nation in regulating the growing fintech industry.”
But the BitLicense has come in for intense criticism from cryptocurrency entrepreneurs. Speaking at CoinDesk’s Consensus 2018 conference Tuesday, ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees called the regulation an “absolute failure” that “should be removed.” He said it was “pathetic” that only a handful of firms had received BitLicenses after three years. “That’s the rate of innovation in New York.”
Several exchanges have stopped operating in the state, including ShapeShift and Kraken.
Despite lacking a BitLicense prior to this week, Genesis Trading has been operating in New York under a safe harbor provision.
The market maker caters to high net worth and institutional investors and offers round-the-clock trading in bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ether, ethereum classic, XRP, litecoin and zcash.
Separately, the DFS also authorized Paxos Trust Company, formerly known as itBit, to operate “a permissioned, blockchain-based post-trade platform settlement service” for precious metals, called Bankchain.
Paxos holds a limited-purpose trust company charter from DFS, as does Gemini Trust Company, a cryptocurrency exchange.
New York became the first state to craft a regulatory structure specifically for cryptocurrencies in 2014, and finalized the BitLicense in August 2015.
The other four firms to receive the license are Circle, in 2015; XRP II, a Ripple subsidiary that sells XRP, the following year; and Coinbase and bitFlyer in 2017.

China’s Crypto-Chips King Sets His Sights on AI – Bloomberg

Bitmain’s AI chip, the BM1680. Photographer: Jasper James for Bloomberg Businessweek The World’s Dominant Crypto-Mining Company Wants to Own AI In a rare interview, Bitmain’s Jihan Wu talks about his plans to take on Nvidia, Intel, and AMD. Max Chafkin and David Ramli From Even by the standards of Bitcoin, things are crazy in China. As the boom in cryptocurrencies has become the biggest speculative bubble in recorded history, a single company in Beijing’s Haidian District has been selling the chips that generate as much as 80 percent of the world’s cryptocoins. “We feel lucky,” says Jihan Wu, the co-chief executive of Bitmain Technologies Ltd. , which was more or less unknown two years ago and, according to Wu, booked revenue of $3.5 billion in 2017. Cryptocurrency networks run on number-crunching, electricity-hogging “mining” technology, and to play in that game with any seriousness, you pretty much need Bitmain’s chips. And because it’s China, the whole thing could fall apart at any minute.
Last year the government cracked down on cryptocurrency trading and banned initial coin offerings. This year it’s sent signals that it could seriously restrict mining . So even though Bitmain has succeeded far beyond Wu’s expectations, he’s already planning for the company’s next act: artificial intelligence. “As a China company,” says the taciturn 32-year-old,“we have to be prepared.”
During a rare series of interviews with Bloomberg Businessweek at Bitmain’s headquarters, Wu and his executives say AI chips are a natural adjacency for their privately held, extremely secretive company. “Artificial intelligence requires lots of computations,” says Wu. That makes it like Bitcoin mining, which is best done by a custom chip known as an application-specific integrated circuit, or ASIC.
On the strength of such chips, Bitmain has quietly become a global power. A February report by Bernstein Research estimated that the company might be generating profits of more than $3 billion per year, about the same as its much larger rival, Nvidia Corp. The report also suggested that Bitmain is probably one of the five biggest customers of the most advanced fabrication process offered by the Taiwanese chip giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. , which also counts among its clients Apple Inc. and Qualcomm Technologies Inc. Wu declined to comment on Bitmain’s profits, but it seems a safe bet that, given the company’s revenue figure, things aren’t quite as rosy as Bernstein’s estimate. TSMC declined to comment.
In October, Bitmain began selling early prototypes of its Sophon BM1680. The ASIC chip, which is sold as part of a $600 accelerator card that you attach to a computer, is designed expressly to speed up machine learning. Although it doesn’t do everything that high-end graphics cards made by the likes of Nvidia and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. do, it’s more powerful for some kinds of deep learning, and much cheaper. “We are just trying to do something that they cannot take care of well enough,” says Wu, who estimates that as much as 40 percent of Bitmain’s revenue will come from AI chips within five years.

He’s got a ways to go. Bitmain’s big AI chip, Sophon—named after the tiny supercomputer in the wildly popular Chinese sci-fi novel The Three-Body Problem —came out five months behind Google’s leading design, the Tensor Processing Unit . But while Google is the company to beat in all things AI, its chips are available only to customers of its cloud services, which are banned in China. That gives Wu a strong position at home.
If Bitmain’s recent history is any guide, the company may not remain an AI underdog for long. In 2011, Wu, a video game geek who favors white T-shirts, light jeans, and sneakers, stumbled into the world of crypto while working as an investment analyst in Beijing. He quickly became obsessed, devouring everything he could about cryptography and monetary history. He translated into Chinese the famous Bitcoin white paper, originally written in English by the pseudonymous author Satoshi Nakamoto, and became a fixture on online cryptocurrency forums.
In 2013, Wu met up with entrepreneur Micree Zhan for dinner at a local restaurant. Zhan, a chip designer by training, had pitched him years earlier on an investment in his startup, which was focused on TV set-top boxes. They spent two hours discussing the ins and outs of Bitcoin, and Wu proposed starting a chip company. Zhan, whose startup had been struggling, listened intently. The next morning, he spent two hours learning more about cryptocurrencies on Wikipedia. He called Wu the next day and said he was in. They sold their first chip later that year.
It was, Wu now says, one of two Bitcoin businesses that seemed plausible. The other was a cryptocurrency exchange, a model that came with far more legal risks. “The only thing that is good to do is Bitcoin mining,” he says. “Because it is 100 percent sure it is legal.” In the early days, when Bitcoin and its ilk were mainly the province of math geeks and dorm room libertarians, hobbyists could mine Bitcoin using software that ran on a laptop. But as interest grew, miners were forced to beef up their rigs if they wanted to keep solving puzzles and earning coins faster than the next miner. That set off a frantic technological arms race, where traditional CPUs were replaced with high-end graphics chips, or GPUs.
By the end of 2013, when the price of Bitcoin hit $1,000 for the first time—it topped $19,000 last year before tumbling back into the $8,000 range—miners began experimenting with ASICs, including Bitmain’s offering. The chips, which had the necessary algorithms coded directly onto the silicon, were faster and used less electricity than GPUs.
Today, Bitmain Antminers are one-trick, server-size boxes that sell for a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. Instead of the various parts that make up a traditional PC, they’re filled with dozens or hundreds of identical high-powered chips. Customers are mostly large mining operators in places with cheap electricity. Rural China, with an excess of cheap coal power, is the most popular location by far.
Bitmain’s success has made it a whipping boy for purists who cherish Bitcoin as a way to subvert any kind of centralized authority. Decisions about the future of the currency are made democratically, with voting power based on the percentage of transactions one controls. This meant Bitmain had a lot of influence when it began arguing that Bitcoin should be tweaked to make it easier to use to buy and sell things, which you might think a no-brainer. Not in Cryptoland, where no disagreement is too small to go full-nuclear over. During one exchange in 2016, the normally restrained Wu tweeted at a critic, “F— your mother.” Eventually, Bitcoin split into two currencies: an original flavor and a new Bitmain-backed currency called Bitcoin Cash. The newer model has slightly more centralized control and much lower transaction fees.
“That is an old story,” Wu says of the dispute. “The cryptocurrency world is becoming more diversified.” With that in mind, he’s selling mining rigs customized for more than a dozen different coins, and he plans to add more.
Controversy, of course, has ensued. In April, Bitmain released an $800 miner for Ethereum, another cryptocurrency that had been seen as resistant to ASICs and thus harder for powerful companies such as Bitmain to dominate. Even so, the news set off a frenzy, with stock prices of graphics-chip makers falling. It also provoked the usual high-intensity debate among Ethereum developers over whether the currency should once again be “forked”—that is, split off into a new version that would render Bitmain’s miners useless.
Ethereum developers have since seemed to make peace with Bitmain’s entrance into the market, and Wu shrugs off criticisms about his company’s power because other chipmakers will inevitably enter the market, too. “If it’s not us, it might be Intel, it might be Nvidia, it might be AMD,” he says.
For now, Bitmain is on the offensive. It’s building new mines in the U.S. and focusing its efforts in China on chip development. With AI, Bitmain is targeting an industry that, unlike Bitcoin, has the full backing of Beijing. Last July the central government announced plans to transform China into the leading AI player by 2030, by investing in research and supporting related businesses. If that support materializes, Bitmain’s uncertain position, and any fear of a regulatory crackdown, will be a distant memory. —With Tom Mackenzie

Why is ZCash Price Rising ? | Latest Crypto News | Coinissimo

This article was first published on: Latest Crypto News —
Last week the Bitcoin Price after having had its steady recovery all through the month of April, fell down again. The main reason was due to the raid of a South Korean cryptocurrency exchange, UPbit on Friday, as well as Mt. Gox getting involved in a massive Bitcoin sell off.
While Bitcoin price is plunging, ZCash seems to be on the other side of the situation. The price of cryptocurrency Zcash surged more than 47 percent after Gemini Trust Co., the bitcoin and other cryptocurrency exchange backed by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss , announced it received approval from New York regulators to allow trading in the so-called “privacy coin” that enables anonymous trading. After Gemini’s announcement on Monday, ZCash prices rose from $250 to $350 within an hour, adding about $462.8 million to Zcash’s now $1.5 billion market capitalization.
Zcash remains on a tear and recently changed hands at $362.48, according to CoinMarketCap. Gemini is offering its full-throated support to Zcash. Tyler Winklevoss, CEO of Gemini, said in a statement that Zcash “picks up where Bitcoin left off,” because “Bitcoin has many strengths, but privacy is not one of them.” In another interview, Cameron Winklevoss noted that coins like Zcash have a small market cap because people are unsure about regulations, but “today demonstrates that through education and collaboration and with the right controls in place, regulators can get comfortable with privacy technology.”
The New York State Department of Financial Services announced that Gemini also gained approval to list Litecoin as well as Bitcoin Cash in the future. Gemini also has customers in Washington, D.C.l Puerto Rico, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and the U.K.
