An expensive lesson against selling bitcoin on eBay | PandoDaily | Bitcoin - Internation Payment Solution No. 1 | Scoop.it

A common fear among bitcoin bears has been that the loosely regulated, somewhat anonymous digital currency would lead to an increase in fraud and other criminal activity. But amid regulators and law enforcement scrambling to prevent bad actors from engaging in money laundering, drug and weapons smuggling, and tax evasion, all under the helpful cover of a nation-less cryptocurrency, comes a report of the most basic of online crimes that has affected products as commonplace as the iPhone.

With that in mind, we wanted to lower all barriers for new merchants to get started, and help highlight some of the economic benefits of accepting bitcoin.

What Proof of Stake Is And Why It Matters | Bitcoin Magazine | Bitcoin - Internation Payment Solution No. 1 | Scoop.it

If you have been involved in Bitcoin for any significant length of time, you have probably at least heard of the idea of “proof of work”. The basic concept behind proof of work is simple: one party (usually called the prover) presents the result of a computation which is known to be hard to compute, but easy to verify, and by verifying the solution anyone else can be sure that the prover performed a certain amount of computational work to generate the result.

Bitcoin: A Primer for Policymakers | Mercatus Center

As the world's first decentralized digital currency, Bitcoin has the potential to revolutionize online payments systems in a way that benefits consumers and businesses. Instead of using an intermediary such as PayPal or submitting credit card information to a third party for verification—both of which often include transaction fees and other restrictions—Bitcoin allows individuals to pay each other directly for goods or services.

Regulation and Bitcoin (Jerry Brito) | Cato Institute

Revenue Canada says BitCoins aren't tax exempt - Canada - CBC News

Revenue Canada says BitCoins aren't tax exempt - Canada - CBC News | Bitcoin - Internation Payment Solution No. 1 | Scoop.it
Just in time for tax season, the Canada Revenue Agency has announced its policy for how you can declare BitCoins on your tax return.

 

Canada’s Revenue Agency says users of bitcoins are obligated to pay taxes on transactions using the alternative currency, the CBC reported.

 

The agency told the CBC that two tax rules apply to the digital currency, depending on how it’s used. Barter transaction rules apply to bitcoins used for goods or services, according to the report.  Bitcoins bought and sold for speculative purposes are subject to captial gains or income taxes, depending on the specifics of the case, the agency says.

 

The real-world implications are beginning to be felt, as one realtor in Saskatoon quoted in the story has listed houses priced in bitcoins.

Bitcoin Mike's curator insight, May 13, 2013 2:06 PM

I see the logic here, but in the long run, this provides no incentive for people to use Canadian Dollars. Money that is placed on an exchange platform may be held in national currency or in bitcoins. National currency can be transfered into a bank and spent, or bitcoins can be transfered into a wallet and spent. This is an impotent legislation and a voluntary tax.
