The Single Greatest Moral Challenge We Face - WBUR

The Single Greatest Moral Challenge We Face - WBUR | money money money | Scoop.it

The single greatest moral challenge we face as a nation is our waning commitment to equality and our acquiescence in its abandonment.

This symbiosis is intense, corrosive to other ideas, aspirations and dimensions of our lives.

3 reasons why Bitcoin is getting its groove back - GigaOM | money money money | Scoop.it

Bitcoin is in a slump. In recent months, the crypto-currency has been in the news for all the wrong reasons: the Department of Homeland Security shut down its primary exchange, the State of California is gunning for the Bitcoin Foundation and, meanwhile, the mainstream press still regards it as an exotic financial hobby rather than a serious currency.

Winklevoss twins' Bitcoin trust aims to introduce investors to alternative currency

Winklevoss twins' Bitcoin trust aims to introduce investors to alternative currency | money money money | Scoop.it

In April Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss claimed their Bitcoin portfolio was worth $11 million — around 1 percent of the currency's dollar equivalent at the time — and now the pair are hoping to bring the alternative currency to traditional investors.

Since shares in these types of funds are traded, investors would essentially be buying and selling Bitcoins without having to deal with the specifics of the alternative currency itself. According to the proposal filed by the twins, owning five shares of the trust would be the equivalent of owning one Bitcoin.
