From eatery to meetup, entrepreneurs increasingly accepting 'bitcoins' in India - Economic Times | money money money | Scoop.it

BANGALORE: Tarun Thadani, the proprietor of a vintage-themed pizza outlet in the posh Worli area of Mumbai, thinks he is making history. On Saturday, his restaurant Kolonial announced that its patrons can pay in bitcoins instead of rupees, thus laying claim to the title of being India's first eatery to accept the new-age currency. "Right now, people are a bit sceptical about bitcoins, but it's going to become big. I am testing the waters," said Thadani, 30, who is a bitcoin owner and a host to several bitcoin meetups at Kolonial.

Banks hate Bitcoin! Banks fear Bitcoin!

Banks hate Bitcoin! Banks fear Bitcoin! | money money money | Scoop.it

Banks hate Bitcoin! Banks fear Bitcoin! Well they would wouldn’t they? The mere mention of Bitcoin is apparently enough to get your bank account closed. The last thing the banks want is a peer to peer payment system that does not require them at the trough gobbling up the money as it flows past. Their protectionism is only going to make people more determined to turn their backs on the medieval financial practices that are a parasitic disease in our financial lives. The banks are going to have to grow up and develop better business ethics or they will become redundant. Bitcoin and the Internet are here to stay. The banks are not going to be able to stop it.

And 'the Word' was made Money! How our Fed has operated since ... | money money money | Scoop.it

Our Federal Reserve Banking System (now 100 years and counting) is based mostly upon psychological deception and a play on ‘words’. Our Fed has no ‘money’ or ‘currency’ of its own, yet a digital currency unit (called the dollar) emerges from the thinking (words) of its Chairman and Committee. The WORDS (within the consciousness of select policymakers) manufacture what we call ‘money’ (units of ‘nothing’)…which then gets actualized within a computer screen by ‘typing’ numbers into the on-line System Open Market Account (SOMA). The magic of ‘money creation’ is beyond the comprehension of most Americans. Who understands what really keeps our financial system afloat? Thomas Jefferson would turn over in his grave if he was aware of today’s banking operations!

Vincent Huang: On the Nature of Money | naked capitalism | money money money | Scoop.it

In the absence of any historical evidence that suggests the existence of a barter economy (Hudson, 2004; Graeber 2011), it is curious how the orthodox school can conclude that money originated from barter.  As Wray puts it, “in neoclassical theory, money is really added as an after thought to a model that is based on a barter paradigm” (2001).  Hence, the point of departure of the orthodox tale, however dubious it may be, has to begin with a pre-existing imaginary barter economy.  Case, Fair, Gartner, and Heather (1999) tell the typical orthodox story of the origin of money in Economics,

“The powers vested in the Federal Reserve Board seem to me highly dangerous, especially where there is political control of the Board. I should be sorry to hold stock in a bank subject to such domination. The bill as it stands seems to me to open the way to a vast inflation of the currency.... I had hoped to support this bill, but I can not vote for it as it stands, because it seems to me to contain features and to rest upon principles in the highest degree menacing to our prosperity, to stability in business, and to the general welfare of the people of the United States.“ Senator Henry Cabot Lodge, Dec 17, 1913

How to buy Bitcoin, Litecoin, and DogeCoin

How to buy Bitcoin, Litecoin, and DogeCoin | money money money | Scoop.it

Despite a roller coaster of a week for digital currencies – or perhaps because of it – the world can’t get enough of Bitcoin and its crypto brethren. But thanks to the complex nature of these digital currencies, the barrier to entry for the average person remains unnecessarily high. One could argue that this is for the best – as I’ve said before, nobody should buy into any digital currency with more money than they can afford to lose due to their volatility. But what if you have a spare $100 just itching to be turned into algorithm-based money – where do you start? Right here, that’s where.

Why Bitcoin Makes For A Horrible Currency In One Chart

Why Bitcoin Makes For A Horrible Currency In One Chart | money money money | Scoop.it

Yermack looks at the historical trading behavior of Bitcoin and compares it other currencies. What he finds is that bitcoin is incredibly volatile and its exchange rate movements have no correlation with other currencies. The virtual currency's inherent stability makes it impossible to use it as a store of value. For this reason, Yermack concludes that bitcoin looks more like a speculative vehicle than a real currency.
