The dramatic fall of BitCoin: No end in sight We’ve discussed BitCoin at some length on Memeburn, including how it works, its potential downfalls, and its genuine merits. BitCoin has experienced its ups and downs in the few years that it has emerged as an online currency. Last year, a major ‘pick-pocketing’ scandal when an anonymous BitCoin user claimed that thieves had managed to steal nearly US$ 500 000 worth of BitCoin. Although the case was unverified, a series of similar incidents caused the BitCoin exchange rate to crash at the time.

Steve Keen's Debtwatch I’ve attended two con­fer­ences in two days where both the power and the impo­tence of the Euro­pean Cen­tral Bank (EBC) have been on vivid display. Its polit­i­cal power is con­sid­er­able, both in form and in sub­stance. At both sem­i­nars, the ECB speaker—ECB Board mem­ber Peter Praet at the first, and ECB Pres­i­dent Mario Draghi at the second—spoke first, and then left.

In sub­stance, it does not even con­sid­er­ing engag­ing with its subjects—I use the word deliberately—in open and robust discussion.

There's Now A Crowdfunded 'Assassination Market' In Which People Pay Bitcoins To Have Public Figures Killed The more we learn about Bitcoin, the more it seems like it was designed exclusively for criminals. And now it seems that Silk Road creator Ross Ulbricht isn’t the only one who has turned to the digital currency to finance murders.
