Virtual currency is picking up steam, and with that security issues are growing as well. While many issues with traditional internet systems (banking, credit card and fund transfer systems, etc.) are averted by the way virtual currency is structured (which gives it a great advantage), security will always be a concern. http://blog.securestate.com/securing-bitcoin-and-virtual-currency/

Crypto-Keys are Free Speech | Lets Talk Bitcoin | Securing Bitcoin and Virtual Currency | Scoop.it

Our legacy banking system is based on debt, while the peer-to-peer, electronic cash system that Satoshi Nakamoto came up with is not. Debt has been the stock and trade of the banking system since the days Kings ruled the land. Bitcoin is not a debt-based currency, therefore it does not lend itself to oligarchical control or what we might call “the game of thrones”. The proverbial “powers behind the throne” that control the money of the world, and have done so for time out of mind, are not likely to simply to step aside or fade away without a fight.

So far, trading Bitcoins have remained a hobby activity as volatility is very important. It's hard to predict price changes due to the lack of tools and the relatively low number of Bitcoin traders compared to currency traders.

Germany recognizes Bitcoin as ‘private money’

Germany recognizes Bitcoin as ‘private money’ | Securing Bitcoin and Virtual Currency | Scoop.it

Bitcoin has been recognized for legal and tax purposes in Germany, making it the first country to take an official stance on the status of using the online currency as money.

Berlin has acknowledged the virtual tender as a "currency unit" and "private money," according to German newspaper Die Welt.

The classification means that some commercial profits on Bitcoin related endeavors may be taxable, but personal use of the currency will remain tax-free, the paper reported.

 

The recognition was laid out in a Finance Ministry response to a query from Frank Schaeffler, a member of parliament’s Finance Committee.

"For the first time, the federal government recognizes Bitcoins as private money," said Schaeffler.

 

In July, the first trading platform for Bitcoins in Europe with direct cooperation with a bank regulated by the Financial Supervisory Authority was set in Germany. Bitcoin Deutschland GmbH agreed to convey Bitcoins on its platform as an intermediary through the German web 2.0 bank Fidor.
