  • Japan to Drop 8% Bitcoin Sales Tax

    "Japan is reportedly planning to exempt bitcoin and other virtual currencies from a national sales tax."

    See the article at: http://www.coindesk.com/japan-may-drop-8-bitcoin-sales-tax/

    I'm interested to hear about the taxable status in other countries... anyone have a list?

  • The Bitcoin experiment has failed - says Mike Hearn

    Alarming but astute article...

    "Why has Bitcoin failed? It has failed because the community has failed. What was meant to be a new, decentralised form of money that lacked “systemically important institutions” and “too big to fail” has become something even worse: a system completely controlled by just a handful of people. Worse still, the network is on the brink of technical collapse. The mechanisms that should have prevented this outcome have broken down, and as a result there’s no longer much reason to think Bitcoin can actually be better than the existing financial system."

  • In 2015 Bitcoin overtakes dollar by 35% - article

    Using the benchmark of the U.S. Dollar Index, a comparison against a basket of major currencies, the dollar gained 8.3% throughout the year. But, the best performing currency in 2015 was not the dollar. Bitcoin staged a late comeback in 2015 to overtake the dollar by a whopping 35% by the end of the year. http://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2016/01/bitcoin-won-the-2015-battle-of-the-currencies/

  • Re: Scam Alert

    I alerted Patreon and promptly received this reply:

    I learned yesterday evening that some Patreon users have been receiving a scam email. The sender claims to have the recipient’s SSN, credit card number and other personal information. I want to assure everyone that the claims in this email are false, and we are already working with federal law enforcement. Do not reply to the email—it is a scam. The tax forms we store are securely encrypted with RSA 2048-bit encryption, and we do not store full credit card numbers.

    If you receive this email I suggest you flag it as spam and ignore any further emails. Do not reply.

    Thanks.

  • Scam Alert

    I just received this troubling email. I do find it funny that it only asks for 1 bitcoin !

    Begin forwarded message:

    From: sharingservices@aol.com Reply to: blanco@starwarssource.net

    Subject: Fwd: Molly recommends : I will leak your identity

    Unfortunately your data was leaked in the recent hacking of the Patreon web site and I now have your information. I have your tax id, tax forms, SSN, DOB, Name, Address, Credit card details and more sensitive data. Now, I can go ahead and leak your details online which would damage your credit score like hell and would create a lot of problems for you.

    If you would like to prevent me from doing this then you need to send 1 bitcoin to the following BTC address.

    Bitcoin Address: (deleted)

    You can buy bitcoins using online exchanges easily. The bitcoin address is unique to you. Sending bitcoin takes take, so you better get started right now, you have 48 hours in total.

  • Pheeva - Email Alert

    I just received this email... which i suppose many of you did also - but i felt it important enough to share here and make it part of the archive. Are we going to see more of these kinds of remedial activities?


    Greetings Pheeva Users,

    Hope all is well! We understand that some of you may be experiencing issues with sending transactions from the Pheeva wallet, so we want to send you all an update and explain why this issue has come up and how we are fixing it.

    Most importantly, we are here to let you know that YOUR BITCOINS ARE SAFE AND SOUND. The issue is with certain transactions only. We've updated the Pheeva Chrome extension as a patch for now.

    So what is going on?

    Recently, a particular Bitcoin user decided it was time to "break" bitcoin. He did so by "spamming" the Bitcoin network with very large volumes o f micro-transactions . This "spamming" effectively overwhelm ed the network and created an enormous backlog of unconfirmed transactions. While he failed in his overall goal of "breaking" Bitcoin, but did succeed in causing some pretty big problems for the network. The main problem being that many transactions could not and would not go through, as they were being added to an increasingly long list of unconfirmed transactions.

    In response to the attack, the Bitcoin Core developers released a bug fix to strengthen the network against spam attacks. This fix involved updating the Bitcoin core protocol so that only transactions with "Low S Value" -signatures could be relayed throughout the network. We will spare you the (extremely) technical details behind S Values, the ECDSA cryptography behind it, and why this change helps defend the network against future "spam" attacks, but suffice it to say that this fix has made it much harder for such an event to occur in the future.

    Why does this matter?

    When the Bitcoin Core developers released the bug fix, many Bitcoin API providers (including ours) changed their APIs so that only transactions with Low S Value-signatures would be accepted and that those without these Low S Value-signatures would automatically be rejected, regardless of if they were valid or not.
    This means that wallets built with older crypto libraries (including ours) are pushing transactions which are being automatically rejected by the network, despite the fact that they are valid transactions. RATS!

    How are we going to fix it?

    We've updated the Pheeva Chrome Extension. We suggest that all users download the Chrome extension (if you don't have it already)

    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pheeva-bitcoin-wallet/ghcmpillaodklpeihaebpllefacgmehf?hl=en-US

    and use it to move your BTC to another mobile wallet. We are working hard on v.2 of the Pheeva mobile wallet and will let you know as soon as it drops.

    For reference and further reading, see this article from our excellent Bitcoin API provider, Blockcypher, which explains in further detail the above.
