Bitcoin’s Price Skyrockets Following PayPal’s Hug | TechCrunch | money money money | Scoop.it

The PayPal integration is minor — users won’t be able to start stashing their bitcoin in their PayPal accounts, but merchants that use certain PayPal services, and are located in North America, will be able to accept bitcoin.

On February 7, Mt.Gox — the once-popular exchange that hosted 80 percent of the world’s Bitcoin trades — informed users that they were temporarily halting withdrawals of the popular electronic currency from their service due to a technical problem called transaction malleability.

They could make it appear as if the withdrawal never happened even though they would still receive the funds.

PayPal president on Bitcoin: 'I don't think it is a currency' - VentureBeat

PayPal president on Bitcoin: 'I don't think it is a currency' - VentureBeat | money money money | Scoop.it

People are confused. They think because it’s called cryptocurrency [that] it’s a currency. I don’t think it is a currency. It’s a store of value, a distributed ledger. It’s a great place to put assets, especially in places like Argentina with 40 percent inflation, where $1 today is worth 60 cents in a year, and a government’s currency does not hold value. It’s also a good investment vehicle if you have an appetite for risk. But it won’t be a currency until volatility slows down. Whenever the regulatory framework is clearer, and the volatility comes down, then we’ll consider it.
