While the US authorities could bring pressure to bear on financial institutions such as Visa, Mastercard or PayPal to stop payments going to Wikileaks, there is no central authority in charge of Bitcoin, making it very much more difficult to control.

Four Reasons Bitcoin Is Worth Studying - Forbes

Four Reasons Bitcoin Is Worth Studying - Forbes | money money money | Scoop.it

As Adam Ozimek points out Bitcoin has so far largely been greeted with eye-rolling by professional economists. One reason is that the cryptocurrency’s most enthusiastic advocates tend to subscribe to a hard-money, end-the-Fed worldview that is unpopular among elites. That has caused the latter toreflexively take the opposite view, treating Bitcoin as primarily a monetary policy experiment and predicting its doom.

The Story Behind the Cyprus and Euro-Crisis | IDN-InDepthNews | Analysis That Matters | money money money | Scoop.it

There is more to the Cyprus crisis than has been taken note of by the general public, not the least because of the mainstream media’s failure to provide a contextual analysis of the situation in three-fifths of the island of Cyprus, two-fifths of which are a separate political entity that only Turkey recognises. The lack of transparency and anti-people solution to resolve the Cyprus crisis and crises elsewhere in the 27-nation bloc bode ill for the European Union

Why do local currencies exist? In Shareable: Can Local Currencies be the Foundation for the Sharing Economy?  John Boik, founder of the Principled Societies Project, writes that at the moment, most local currencies are essentially “buy local” programs which encourage residents to purchase goods and services within their communities. But a more advanced form could serve as the financial underpinning of an expanded sharing economy.

Bitcoin is correctly listed as a local currency, and could indeed serve as the underpinnings of a new, better way to do business around the world.

Why the financial crisis was bad for democracy

Why the financial crisis was bad for democracy | money money money | Scoop.it

In a democratic society, there will always be tension over which decisions should be made by expert appointees, and which by those with the legitimacy and accountability that come with competing for citizens’ votes. The technocrats can make complex decisions quickly, quietly and efficiently. The words “quick, “quiet” and “efficient” are rarely applied to the U.S. Senate or the Italian Parliament — but these institutions are imbued with an authority that comes directly from the people, the explicit consent of the governed.

Bitcoin Really Is an Existential Threat to the Modern Liberal State - Bloomberg

So far, Bitcoin is not a big deal. Its total value in circulation was$1.4 billion as of this week. That's equivalent to the currency stock of a small nation -- somewhere between Iceland and Uruguay -- and just one-thousandth of the total value of U.S. dollars in circulation. The volume of transactions in Bitcoin is growing only slowly, relative to the massive increase in demand for the currency: This discrepancy is strong evidence that Bitcoin’s rise is a speculative bubble.

What The Rise Of Bitcoin Teaches Us About Money | Brian Brown's Official Website

I think Bitcoin can continue to exist as a subordinate form of money with a very low level of moneyness, but if Bitcoin were to grow to a point where it becomes a highly competitive form of money, but circumvents the laws, regulations and taxation of a system like the US banking system, my guess is that the US government will make it illegal for merchants to receive Bitcoins for payment.  And then 100 FBI agents get a few thousand Bitcoins each, buy something from US based Bitcoin merchants and parade them out on national TV for the entire nation to see why Bitcoin acceptance results in a $250,000 fine and 5 years in prison.  In other words, Bitcoin could very well become a victim of its own success as the US government would never allow another form of money to detract from public purpose due to high levels of monetary competition.  Of course, I am referring to the US government, but this view would likely be embraced by many governments around the world.
