Wolfgang Schäuble: Greek debt haircut talk must end - eurozone crisis live - The Guardian

Wolfgang Schäuble: Greek debt haircut talk must end - eurozone crisis live - The Guardian | money money money | Scoop.it

One cannot help thinking that German finance minister Wolfgang Schäuble’s visit to Athens is long overdue. It should have happened somewhere near the start of the crisis, when the staggering nature of Greece’s debt load first became apparent – and the tiny country on the edge of Europe needed all the help it could get. But back then, of course, Berlin was too busy excoriating Athens and meting out punishment for its fiscal recklessness to even contemplate such a thing.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, the Internet entrepreneurs perhaps best known for their associations with Facebook and Bitcoin, are the latest techies to leap into the art world. This week, the twins’ Winklevoss Capital announced an investment round inPaddle8, a New York-based art auction house known for their high-profile charity events including a recent Faberge Egg auction. Paddle8 has flirted publicly with the use of Bitcoins for art transactions in the past and is one of the more tech-savvy of the online auction houses looking for a piece of the international market. Winklevoss Capital declined to discuss the specifics of the investment but said it was their first in the art or auction arenas.

Chicago N. America Bitcoin Conference - Philanthropy, Emerging Markets & Regulation

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.
