Four Days Trapped at Sea With Crypto's Nouveau Riche
Back on land, fascism is seeping across the Global North and almost everyone here comes from some form of failing pseudo-democratic experiment calling itself a country, and none of this is mentioned, except as one more reason to buy bitcoin. Or Bitcoin Cash. Whatever. I have met many people who believe the best way to survive the 21st century is to secede from it. From gentle Dark Green anarchists living in trees and Silicon Valley preppers stuffing their bunkers with Soylent, there are people of all genders and political persuasions looking to walk the plank of the good ship Reality before they’re pushed, but I’ve never met so many so transparently trying to con as many fellow travelers as as possible on their way down.

Bitcoin estimated to use half a percent of the world's electric energy by end of 2018
„[Alex de Vries] estimates, based in economics, put the minimum current usage of the Bitcoin network at 2.55 gigawatts, which means it uses almost as much electricity as Ireland. A single transaction uses as much electricity as an average household in the Netherlands uses in a month. By the end of this year, he predicts the network could be using as much as 7.7 gigawatts--as much as Austria and half of a percent of the world's total consumption. 'To me, half a percent is already quite shocking. It's an extreme difference compared to the regular financial system, and this increasing electricity demand is definitely not going to help us reach our climate goals,' he says.“

Bitcoin Sees Wall Street Warm to Trading Virtual Currency
Die Businesskasper wollen Bitcoin an der Wall Street zocken. Bin gespannt, ob das a) das Prinzip Cryptowährung mainstreamfähig macht und b) die Volatilität (also die Sprunghaftigkeit des Kurses) zügeln kann. Interessante Entwicklung, auch wenn ich bei Cryptowährungen mehr als skeptisch bin.

NYTimes: <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/07/technology/bitcoin-new-york-stock-exchange.html">Bitcoin Sees Wall Street Warm to Trading Virtual Currency</a>

<!--more-->
The parent company of the New York Stock Exchange has been working on an online trading platform that would allow large investors to buy and hold Bitcoin, according to emails and documents viewed by The New York Times and four people briefed on the effort who asked to remain anonymous because the plans were still confidential.

The news of the virtual exchange, which has not been reported before, came after Goldman Sachs went public with its intention to open a Bitcoin trading unit — most likely the first of its kind at a Wall Street bank.

The moves by Goldman and Intercontinental Exchange, or ICE, the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange, mark a dramatic shift toward the mainstream for a digital token that has been known primarily for its underworld associations and status as a high-risk, speculative investment.
