Today on Decentral Talk Live: Will O'Brien, CEO of BitGo, talks about Bitcoin wallet solutions.

Dear Reddit. Can we talk? It’s CAVIRTEX

TL:DR We’re fixing our dormant account activity fee policy - you’ll now be getting 3 alerts before any charges. Fees have been reduced by 50%. CAVIRTEX is an exchange not a wallet. Our CEO Joseph is going to do an AMA. We want your feedback.
Dear Reddit,
Let me introduce myself. My name is Kyle Kemper (that is my real name), and I started working with CAVIRTEX this May. In April, I appeared alongside Joseph David and Larry O’Brien at the Senate of Canada which can be seen here. After the Senate, I was elected to the Bitcoin Alliance of Canada as a Director by the groups membership. Before Bitcoin I’ve worked in start-ups, venture capital, the service industry, politics, and waterslides. I decided to join CAVIRTEX because I think they’re on the right path, and they’ve got a great team across the board. Since joining CAVIRTEX I’m seeing that we’re doing a lot of things right. We’ve got a solid roadmap ahead of us, but in the past we’ve made mistakes.
It is my goal to change this and fix our reputation amongst one of the most impressive communities on the planet and have your support moving forward.
The first thing I want to address is our dormant account activity fees policy; a policy that created anger and outrage amongst the community. CAVIRTEX wants to acknowledge that we mishandled the implementation and communication of this policy and are taking steps to remedy the situation.
But before we get into solutions lets look at the reasons why we implemented them in the first place.
The message that the dormant activity fee tries to get across is that we are an exchange and not a bank/wallet. As part of your long-term bitcoin plan you shouldn't use an exchange to store your coins. At this moment, holding unnecessary amounts of coins and cash increases our liability, expenses and security. If we're not holding your coins, we can't lose your coins. For these reasons it was decided to charge an inactivity fee of $50 per month for accounts with balances and no trading activity in the last 12 months.
Having said this the way we implemented this was terrible, and we apologize. We didn't communicate it properly, we didn't include proper alerting, and we didn't test the system properly.
Since launching the dormancy fee we have refunded many users who were improperly charged. Specifically, there was a bug that charged account holders on recent deposits because there was no trading activity in the last year; this wasn't right, we've issued refunds, and we've fixed the bug. If you feel that your account was improperly charged, submit a support ticket and you’ll hear from us shortly.
We're also implementing email alerts so that 1-month, 1-week, and 1-day before you get charged and inactivity fee you will get notice and can act to move your coins or make a trade.
We’ve heard your complaints about our fees and we’re taking action. We’ve lowered our fees by 50%! Our base transaction fee is now 0.75%, which will help you save money while you trade. We noticed that a lot of our users were just using CAVIRTEX as a fiat gateway; with these lower fees we hope you’ll do your trading here.
We now offer FREE in-person cash deposits so you can go to any MoneyMart, CashMoney, or Insta-cheque to fund your account.
We're working tirelessly on improving our service, but most of the improvements are on the back-end. That said, our re-designed website is near the top of the queue but no firm dates yet.
For storing your bitcoins I suggest you look into services like Blockchain.info, Armory or follow some of the suggestions listed here but for heavens sake do not use us as a bank or wallet; use us as an exchange. That goes for any exchange, not just CAVIRTEX!
I know we're not the most popular Bitcoin company, but we want to work actively with you towards improving our service and reputation. On that note, our CEO Joseph David will be doing an AMA for our 3-year anniversary.
Until then, here are some questions I have to get a constructive discussion going.
What would you do to grow CAVIRTEX and improve it’s image? What do you think we should change?
To a better future, in liberty, much love,
-Kyle Kemper

"The Big Picture" - Dollar Vigilante November Newsletter

It has been an interesting week for me.
First, I was invited to speak at World Crypto CON in Las Vegas and then shortly before the event they told me I couldn’t speak. At the same time they told most of my other anarchist friends they also couldn’t speak and/or they were banned from the event, including Ben Swann, Luke Rudkowski and Josh Sigurdson of World Alternative Media.
I was already in Texas for the Texas Bitcoin Conference and I mostly just wanted to play in their crypto poker tournament anyway so I went to Vegas.
All manner of strange people seemed to be coming up to me, including one woman speaking in tongues. And, a weird energy surrounded the event... so much so that my body was shaking the entire time.
Then they also didn’t allow me to play in the poker event! I paid one guy some BTC to buy his chips and they threatened to call the police on me! I know what happens next when that happens so I left the premises.
Later that night, Josh Sigurdson was poisoned and barely survived. Other anarchists I knew who were there were being accosted, having their phones stolen and other aggressions.
I should mention this all occurred on Halloween. Day of the dead. Whatever happened, karma struck instantly and no one showed up! I then got a message from my wife that she wanted me to come home immediately and I was happy to do so.
She told me that God told her that we had to tell everyone to repent immediately before it was too late and she went into two days of screaming, crying and became delirious after three days without eating or sleeping.
Eventually we had to get her to the hospital to get her calmed down. I’ve spent the last two days with her there and we just returned home as they gave her a number of things to relax her.
Is something strange going on? It sure feels like it. In any case, as I stated in the last newsletter, no matter what happens I am just going to continue on with my work (although spending more time with my family is also a priority) helping people to wake up... that’s all I can do.
Current Events
As I write it is the midterm selections in the USSA. Yet another, “most important election in our lifetime.” All fear propaganda to try to make believe that voting will fix this evil system of slavery. It won’t. But, when they say this is the "election of our lifetimes" they are right on one thing. Politics, central banks and government are very close to destroying the entire world.
Elect to walk away from it all now before it is too late. I know I don’t have to tell TDVers that but it is worth reiterating.
And, the results are in. Anarchy won like it has every single selection.
And the wars continue killing or destroying the lives of millions of innocents, Americans continue to get extorted for trillions of dollars per year, millions of innocents remain in cages in rape camps and the Federal Reserve continues to impoverish and steal from everyone.
Meanwhile, in things that actually matter, the battle over bitcoin has hastened dramatically. But, you wouldn’t know it from the price action.
The complete lack of volatility has only gotten worse (or better if you are in the “volatility is bad for bitcoin” camp).
Here is a chart of bitcoin on October 27th.
For a 24 hour period it traded within a $15 band! It’s like the whole world is just waiting to see what happens next.
And, what will happen next? I am still expecting a panic sell-off along with all worldwide markets followed by a price explosion.
We did make it through October without that happening, but I have pointed out November is also a prime month for it to occur. If nothing major occurs in November then I may have to reassess.
The US stock markets continue to hang in there but really only propped up by a minority of stocks as this tweet from early October points out.
Bank stocks, which are probably one of the most important to watch are off 17% from January of this year.
Meanwhile, crypto exchange Binance made more profit than Deutsche Bank in the second quarter of this year!
As I said last issue, things really couldn’t be going better for the cryptospace, right as it appears that bank stocks and the market as a whole is on the verge of collapse.
On October 26th, the CEO of Visa, Al Kelly, said that he “certainly” does not view cryptocurrencies as a threat to his business right now, but added that “if we have to go there, we’ll go there.”
You’ll have to go there Kelly... better start working on your resume. Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC is about to release its first blockchain-powered handset in cryptocurrencies, making it the first big name in the industry to accept only digital currencies as payment.
Exodus 1, the first version of HTC’s blockchain phone, is priced at 0.15 BTC or 4.78 ETH, which in current trading equates to about US$960.
HTC first announced the Exodus phone in May, which features a built-in digital wallet that will enable users to store and trade cryptocurrencies.
But, the game changing news is that ICE, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange, has announced they will launch their new digital asset platform, Baakt, on December 12th. This will enable traditional institutional investors to easily invest into the bitcoin market.
The total bitcoin market right now is about a $110 billion market cap.
Total value of financial asset worldwide is estimated to be over $300 trillion. Which means bitcoin is only 0.03% of total financial assets held in the world.
If, say, only 1% of that $300 trillion were to go into bitcoin, that would mean $3 trillion would be trying to enter a market worth $100 billion.
In other words, if you don’t own bitcoin and other cryptos by December 12th... don’t do that. And, don’t forget precious metals either.
FinIst analyst Denis Lisitsyn recently said on RT, “The aggressive US policy in recent years has forced some countries to look for an alternative to the dollar and replenish their gold reserves. Worries about the future growth of global economy are an additional incentive for purchases. Many question Donald Trump’s protectionism.”
Sounds like he has been listening to TDV’s Ed Bugos!
In the same article, Vladimir Rojankovsky, LIFA, expert at the International Financial Center said that Hungary, Poland, Russia, China, India, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are all hoarding gold.
This, after Russian ownership of US Treasury bonds dropped from $96.1 billion in March to an 11-year low of $14.9 billion in May.
The writing is on the wall. And almost the entire public has no idea what is happening.
Luckily you do, so stick with us here as we give you are best guidance on how to survive and prosper during and after the dollar collapse.
And get right with your family and God. I’ve had a few moments in the last week where I thought it might be all over and each time I felt despondent knowing I still haven’t done enough. Don’t wait too long.
Coming Events
Due to my wife being in the hospital recently I cancelled going to Steemfest in Poland. I was also going to go to Iran and Iraq on that trip. But, I’ve decided family has to come before work in this respect.
Which means, really, my next major events are close to home with the TDV Summit on February 12-13th and Anarchapulco/Cryptopulco from February 14-17th.
I couldn’t help notice that World Crypto Con, which seemed to be out to kill all of us anarchists, was on October 31st and Anarchapulco starts on Valentine’s Day. Because it is really all about love.
If you haven’t checked out the TDV Summit page lately, check it out. We’ve added a number of great speakers and I still have a few surprises to announce. It is two full days this year and I am able to focus on it fully for the first time as we have a professional management team running Anarchapulco now. And, included in the price is a gala dinner to be held on the evening of February 12th.
And, Anarchapulco just released its main stage speaker list (there will be 5 stages this year). It’s quite the list! Jeffrey Tucker - Anarchapulco Master of Ceremonies
Ron Paul Former - Congressman, Author of 'End the Fed'
Andrew Napolitano - Senior Judicial Analyst for Fox News

There are even more announcements soon, including Larken Rose and many more. And, we haven’t announced the Cryptopulco speaker list yet. It should come out in the next week. You won’t want to miss it.
Anarchapulco will likely sell out by January. And all 1,000 rooms in the Princess Hotel are already close to sold out, so if you want to stay on premises, make sure to book your room now. If you miss it, don’t worry, we’ll likely be filling up a hotel nearby down the beach too!
And, don’t worry about what might happen in the future. Live in the present. Own some precious metals and cryptocurrency. Work on yourself, physically, mentally and spiritually. And spend more time with your loved ones.
Everything else will work itself out.
Now, I’m going to go watch Lord of the Rings with my wife and kids. “Hey kids, did you know that ring of power is an allegory for central banks and government?”
Thank you, as always, for being a subscriber!

Crypto News - Cryptocurrencies starting the week positive in contrast to Emerging Markets Fiat Currencies

submitted by QuantalyticsResearch to CryptoCurrency [link] [comments]

CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN AIMS TO FIGURE OUT WHERE IN THE WORLD IS THE REAL SATOSHI

Satoshi Nakamoto’s true identity has been a well-kept secret. Many are still on the hunt, and a new crowdfunding campaign has been launched to raise money in order to hire detective agencies who will scour the globe in a public-funded search for Satoshi.
The hunt for Satoshi Nakamoto still carries on. Over the past few years, a variety of online publications and individual people have tried to stay on the trail of the person (or people) who represent the real Satoshi.
There have been a number of theories about Satoshi’s identity, and the cryptocurrency community has always been incredibly interested when someone steps forward with something new.
Back in 2016, the virtual currency world was in a frenzy when BBC published a report concerning Dr. Craig Wright, saying he provided “technical proof” he was the elusive Bitcoin $6038.31 +0.66% creator.
Many were skeptical of the purported evidence, and there have been a number of nuanced, as well as more light-hearted swipes, at Wright’s claims.
Other people, like Tesla creator Elon Musk, have spoken out to quell rumors about being Satoshi. The CIA even responded to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request saying they could “neither confirm or deny” the existence of documents relating to Satoshi. Some took the response as evidence the agency could have files on the Bitcoin creator.
Now an international group of digital currency enthusiasts are raising funds to conduct an international search for Satoshi.

WE NEED TO FIND SATOSHI

Posted on crowdfunding site boomstarter.ru, the campaign is looking to order a search for Satoshi from “several independent detective agencies located in the US and Japan, as well as Europe.”
The creators said the hired agencies would have to conduct a “public and transparent account of their activates” while working. The said the three locations were chosen because of Satoshi’s purported affiliation with these areas.
According to the creators, people have the “right” to know the identity of Satoshi and write how they must “declassify it ourselves” if Satoshi “does not want publicity.” However, they explain how they pledge not to disturb the person (or persons) if Satoshi turns out to be someone “ordinary” who is “afraid of publicity.”

‘BE SURE BITCOIN IS NOT A GLOBAL DECEPTION’

The crowdfunding campaign creators list a couple of reasons why finding Satoshi is not just a “trivial curiosity.”
According to the campaign, figuring out the identity of the mysterious Bitcoin creator could help with its further development, while possibly solving some of the questioned assumptions behind the digital currency.
The crowdfunding group also believes cryptocurrency enthusiasts should be able to know the identity of a figure with more than “1 million coins in his wallet,” and a figure who could “overthrow the market overnight” by executing transactions.
As of press time, the campaign was 47% funded, having raised roughly 7,103,400 Russian rubles ($104,952 USD) from 1,543 backers. Donors are able to receive a variety of rewards, including an “I Find Satoshi” pin, t-shirts, and hoodies.
The highest reward category, which was limited to one person, was already reached by press time. For 500,000 Russian rubles (roughly $7,390 USD), the donor will have a week-long tour of the country where “Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto will be found.”

Everyday Blockchain News:Former Visa CEO Moves to Startup That Uses Cryptocurrency to Process Everyday Payments

https://preview.redd.it/3zabp78i9bz01.jpg?width=760&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8fe671064aa24fd7d754b6aa3dc0af6575c82782
Last week, on May 19, former Visa UK and Ireland CEO Marc O’Brien said during an interview with Business Insider’s Oscar Williams-Grut that he has been appointed as the CEO of a cryptocurrency startup called Crypterium.

Everyday Payments

During the interview, O’Brien, who served as the CEO of VISA UK for six years from 2008 to 2014, said that his team is attempting to increase the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and ether as currencies and legitimate payment methods by allowing users to spend cryptocurrencies on a daily basis to pay for products and services.
He said:
“The idea is that cryptocurrency is actually quite difficult today to use as an everyday method of payment. If you were to go to an exchange with your bitcoin or your ether it would probably take you 3 to 7 days to get that money paid out into a normal bank account. What Crypterium will do is make that whole process seamless and give an opportunity for a consumer to actually use their cryptocurrency to pay for everyday items.”
The short-term strategy of the startup is to leverage the experience of O’Brien in the traditional finance industry and his connections in the credit card service sector to secure a strategic partnership with Visa or Mastercard and release cryptocurrency-backed debit cards.
While many projects and companies such as Xapo, TenX, and Coins.ph have utilized Visa-partnered banks to launch cryptocurrency debit cards, the companies were forced to shut down their debit card services due to the crackdown on cryptocurrency debit cards by Visa in 2017.
Last year, Visa emphasized that it had to close down the debit card services of cryptocurrency startups because the services were initiated without the permission of Visa through third party service providers. There exists a possibility that projects like Crypterium could release official cryptocurrency debit cards in the future if they can cooperate with either Visa or Mastercard directly.
“That card will be attached to a wallet that we’ve created and every time the consumer makes a transaction we will receive a request for that transaction in our systems, we will check the bitcoin or ether account and provided that they’ve got sufficient balance we will execute a trade and mark their bitcoin balance for a trade and approve the transaction. You can be in a store and all of that’s done in a fraction of a second,” said O’Brien.

Starbucks Chairman’s Skepticism

Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz has said that he is interested in a cryptocurrency that can be easily accepted by mainstream merchants.
Previously, CCN reported that Starbucks chairman Howard Schultz is interested in the cryptocurrency market and the adoption of digital currencies. But, Schultz stated that he would only be interested in a cryptocurrency that can be widely adopted and embraced by retailers and large-scale merchants like Starbucks.
“I personally believe that there is going to be a one or a few legitimate trusted digital currencies off of the blockchain technology. And that legitimacy and trust in terms of its consumer application will have to be legitimized by a brand and a brick and mortar environment, where the consumer has trust and confidence in the company that is providing the transaction,” said Schultz.
A separate cryptocurrency developed with Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) systems to appeal to retailers is unnecessary if projects can use existing cryptocurrencies with market dominance like bitcoin and ether to process day-to-day payments, even if it requires a third-party service like Visa’s debit card network to kickstart the adoption of cryptocurrenies.

Crypto Payments Are Going Mainstream

The way we pay for goods has evolved dramatically over time. Before they were rendered obsolete by gold and silver coins, cowrie shells were used as a currency in day-to-day trade. Coins, in their turn, were replaced by paper money, which eventually had to make way for plastic cards, followed by contactless payment solutions we enjoy today.
Cryptocurrencies can become the next mainstream payment solution within next decade, a recent study from Imperial College London argues. If that’s true and cryptocurrencies are to fulfill their intended use case becoming a globally accepted form of money, we should be asking when buying the weekly shop with them will be commonplace.
Going Crypto
While today you likely can’t pop into your local coffee shop and buy a latte using the contents of your Bitcoin wallet, more and more sellers are starting to accept cryptocurrency. CoinMap lists as many as 12,937 merchants that have welcomed crypto as a payment method, as of July 2018.
Most of those are small outlets, but some big names have already joined the list of crypto-accepting companies, including Microsoft, Expedia, and Craigslist. You can use Bitcoin to buy gift cards via Gyft, and those with deeper digital pockets can even purchase a ticket to space through Virgin Galactic.
It does sound promising, but paving the road to the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies is no simple task. Since many businesses are still reluctant to accept cryptocurrency, a handful of startups are coming up with solutions to implement crypto into the existing payments infrastructure.
Driving the Change
Last month, former CEO of Visa UK Marc O’Brien joined Crypterium, a cryptocurrency startup that wants to make it easy to pay with cryptocurrencies in everyday situations via any NFC terminal, by scanning QR codes or conducting online payments. The app already allows its users to top up their mobile phones with crypto, and that’s just the first step.
“Our goal is to enable our customers to actually use their cryptocurrencies for everyday payments: to do groceries, commute, or pay utility bills,” Marc explains. “Making people confident they can use bitcoin, ether and other popular currencies across millions of payment terminals globally is a necessary step for crypto to become the ‘new money.’”
O’Brien is not alone in his belief that cryptocurrencies will go mainstream in the nearest future. Fintech startups TenX and Monaco promise to issue cryptocurrency cards similar to everyday debit cards with one difference: you will be able to deposit cryptocurrencies on them. A nice option for those not willing to accept much change at once, that is instant mobile payments, and ready to wait for 2 or 3 weeks for their card to be issued and delivered.
The crucial role of companies popularizing the daily use of crypto can be backed by real figures: the said Crypterium holds the record of 70K token holders and 400K registered users.
Embracing Innovation
Those who witnessed the Interned starting out as a way to decentralize communications and evolving as the new ethos, upending how we interact, do business, and work, cannot deny the resemblance it bears to blockchain, the one that started out to decentralize value.
The way we communicate has changed and will keep changing: from words to handwritten letters, emails, and instant messaging. The same is with how we treat value; there is no looking back and trying to measure crypto assets with the same yardstick as traditional money.
Just like the Internet 30 years ago, imagine how blockchain can transform our lives. An interesting question that follows is: “What could crypto do for global commerce?” Hopefully, we’ll see within the next decade.

Video: http://www.moneyandtech.com/apr17-news-update/
Catch up with today's top news stories in Money & Tech:
Blockchain.info announced today that it has struck a five year deal to exclusively manage the domain Bitcoin.com. The domain's sleek new homepage now features three main links for the Blockchain wallet service, Zeroblock news and charts, as well as a search function to explore the rest of Blockchain.info. As stated in their announcement, this is part of the mission quote "to create new learning experiences and introduce millions of users to Bitcoin."
SecondMarket has taken another step towards the ultimate launch of America’s first fully regulated Bitcoin Exchange, releasing a new website for their quote “Experienced, Full Service Bitcoin Trading Services”. CEO Barry Silbert says he hopes to launch the fully licensed exchange for all compliant users this summer.
Walmart has announced the April 24th launch of their new Walmart-2-Walmart Money Transfer Service, in partnership with global remittances company Ria, which could clarify their decision to cut ties with Gyft.com. The new low-cost service will allow customers to transfer money between the over 4,000 Walmart stores nationwide, and is aimed at helping the almost 28 percent of Americans who are either underbanked or unbanked and rely on money transfers.
ZaZZZ, billed as the first Marijuana vending machine in the US, will also be accepting bitcoin. Since the legalization of marijuana in 2012, Bitcoin has become popular among dispensary owners who have been rejected by traditional financial institutions. The ZaZZZ machine however is far from an anonymous way to buy the newly legal drug, as it is equiped with an ID reader, and a video camera.
Former Congressman Ron Paul took to popular question-and-answer website Quora to express his thoughts about bitcoin, saying "Though I don’t personally believe that Bitcoin is true money, it should be perfectly legal and there should be no restrictions on it... For this to operate, we need to have freedom from government intervention when it comes to the Internet."
Dogecoin creator Jackson Palmer and the Dogecoin Foundation are putting together Dogecon SF on April 25th in San Francisco, in partnership with Follow The Coin. The event’s organizers expect it to be the largest dogecoin gathering yet, lining up celebrity speakers such as litecoin creator Charlie Lee, Doge tip bot co-founder David Dvorak, and bitcoin evangelist Andreas Antonopoulos.
