The Pre-Bitcoin Era and Satoshi’s Gift

[Image: digicash-20-638-300x169.jpg]

David Chaum and many other cryptographers helped pave the way for 
Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

June 12, 2017

Bitcoin changed the landscape of digital money when it was introduced to the world in 2009, and was followed by many other types of cryptocurrencies. Now bitcoin and the over 800 copycats (so called altcoins) have reached a very large market valuation of $110 billion. Let’s take a look at how this emerging digital assets landscape began and where we are today.

Since the beginning of the Internet’s early days, the concept of digital money has always intrigued the human race. When the world wide web really started to become popularized during the late eighties, and throughout the nineties, online privacy activists called cypherpunks began creating and envisioning digital currencies. David Chaum and many other well-known cryptographers helped pave the way for a technology like bitcoin.

One of the first digital currencies was Digicash, created by Chaum, and was later sold and used for bank-to-bank settlements only. There were many other efforts during those years that tried to create the perfect Internet currency such as Hashcash, e-gold, and Bitgold. However these ideas never really caught on until an anonymous developer named Satoshi Nakamoto revealed his white paper called ‘Bitcoin’ in 2008. The following year in January the Bitcoin network was born while the central banking system was once again quantitatively easing the world away from economic failure.

Satoshi published the Bitcoin invention on October 31, 2008, 
to the cryptography mailing list.

Bitcoin Has Produced Hundreds of Clones Offering Different Features

Following Bitcoin’s success at being the first cryptographic currency with a blockchain, the technology showed it had a better chance than the predecessors conceived before it. Additionally, other cryptocurrencies appeared on the scene shortly after the birth of Bitcoin. Some of the earliest blockchain-based digital assets include Litecoin, Namecoin, Feathercoin, and Peercoin. Some of them offered different algorithms, a new feature, or different amounts of tokens. For instance, the first scrypt coin was Tenebrix which led to the vast myriad of other coins that were supposed to be ‘ASIC proof,’ but that turned out to be untrue. Litecoin followed the idea of Tenebrix with its scrypt based algorithm and has remained a top ten contending cryptocurrency, valuation-wise, since its inception.

Some of the older altcoins that were created shortly after bitcoin.

After Litecoin, other cryptocurrencies were introduced, like Peercoin which established the first proof of stake (PoS) consensus (although Peercoin also uses Proof-of-Work for important parts of its system). Primecoin pioneered a scientific computing proof-of-work system, and Bytecoin introduced the Cryptonote protocol for the first time. Following this, a wide range of different types of cryptographic value exchange methods were infused into cryptocurrencies like the X11 algorithm, proof-of-importance (PoI), the Quark algorithm, and the zerocash protocol. At the present time, there are 870+ digital tokens that are available to the public that can be found on an assortment of global cryptocurrency exchanges.

The Altcoin Landscape Shift and Ethereum’s Domination

[Image: ETHEREUM_NAV-BAR-LOGO-300x75.png]

The landscape of the highest valued digital assets is far different than it was in the early years. Now cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, Monero, Stratis, and Dash have been extremely profitable over the past year. Many of the market cap valuations for these digital assets are worth multi-millions and some of them billions, like bitcoin. Even older cryptocurrencies like Litecoin, Peercoin, Namecoin, and Feathercoin are still treasured assets. However the top twenty coins today are far different than they were during the first cryptocurrency craze of 2013.

This year, at certain times Ethereum trade volumes outpace Bitcoin volumes. Furthermore, Ethereum’s market cap is awfully close to surpassing Bitcoin’s market valuation.

Now cryptocurrency markets are worth more than ever before, and the Ethereum economyhas more than half of the market share Bitcoin has, as the digital asset is currently worth over $300 per ether. At the time of writing, one ether’s value has to climb to a little over $510 to overtake bitcoin’s market capitalization. For the first time in history, the chance of this happening is becoming more probable. Furthermore, a vast amount of newer coins and even tokens created with Ethereum have gained immense value this year as well.

We Don’t Know What Will Happen, but in the Meantime, It’s Pretty Amazing to Watch

The fact is no one knows what’s going to happen to this growing environment of cryptocurrencies. Some believe it will continue to prosper and bitcoin and altcoins will become the new money of the future. While others believe only a few out of the hundreds of digital assets will survive, and some think bitcoin might not be one of them. Others believe that a broad range of altcoin valuations are in a bubble based on ICO fever and mere speculation on trading platforms. They think the bubble could pop at any moment, and it’s just matter of time when it does. All people can do is come up with their own cryptocurrency forecasts and try to tether that with present day information and data.  
We currently can’t predict the outcome of how digital money will change society. However, we do know the way humans exchange value these days is clearly shifting directions, and bitcoin has pushed that envelope further. The environment bitcoin has produced brought about significant technical advances so far, and right now we seem to be witnessing the biggest transfer of wealth in decades. That’s a pretty amazing feat for a technology that’s less than ten years old, and it’s only going to get better.

A consortium of India-based banking firms including State Bank of India, ICICI Bank and DCB Bank has formally selected Microsoft Azure as their exclusive cloud partner.

As a part of this partnership, the 20 members of the BankChain consortium, which went public with its R&D efforts last month, will use Microsoft's Azure blockchain to host the nodes that will relay transactions on their distributed ledger systems.

According to a news release, the first active project to use Azure will be Primechain-KYC, a closed, permissioned blockchain built by Mumbai-based Primechain Technologies. The tool seeks to help clients share know-your-customer (KYC), anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing information.

Since adding blockchain to its Azure cloud computing platform in October 2015, Microsoft has added a steady stream of partners, including JP Morgan, Emercoin, and Bitshares, to its blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) solution – a product styled as a kind of 'sandbox' where partners can interact with different technologies in a low-risk environment.

As such, the partnership affirms how bringing blockchain to banking, financial services and the insurance industry has been a focus for Microsoft

The bitcoin exchange Bitpoint has partnered with Japan’s largest online travel agent Evolable Asia to bring bitcoin payments and exchange services to over 1,400 hotels and inns across Japan this summer.
Bitcoin Coming to 1400+ Accommodation Facilities
[Image: bitpoint-logo-300x77.png]

Bitpoint, a subsidiary of the publicly traded conglomerate Remixpoint, last month partnered with Peach Aviation and announced that it was bringing bitcoin payments to over 100,000 stores in Japan. Last week, it has fulfilled some of its promises and confirmed that over 1,400 accommodation facilities across Japan will soon start accepting bitcoin. This is made possible through a partnership with Japan’s leading online travel agent Evolable Asia.
According to Bitpoint:

[i]The aim is to enable customers to exchange bitcoin to Japanese yen at hotels and inns across Japan, including at Airtrip Exchange stores and 1400 contract facilities in the Evolable Asia Group. This service will begin this summer.[/i]

Bitcoin can both be exchanged for yen and be used to pay for lodging by customers in each participating accommodation facility, according to the company.

Japan’s Largest Online Travel Agent

Evolable Asia handles online ticket sales for many websites. “If you’ve ever booked a flight or vacation package in Japan, there’s a good chance you did it through Evolable Asia – though you may not know it,” wrote Tech in Asia. In addition to its own online travel portals, more than 600 domestic travel sites use its in-house technology to power their own flight, hotel, and tour package searches, the publication detailed.
Japan’s leading independent investor relations support service company, Investment Bridge Co. Ltd, provides analysis of publicly traded Japanese companies. In March, the company published a report on Evolable Asia, stating that:

[i]Evolable Asia Corp. is Japan’s largest Online Travel Agent (OTA) in terms of its number of domestic airline tickets handled. It is the only OTA that has signed agreements with all of the domestic airline groups.[/i]

Headquartered in Tokyo and Ho Chi Minh City with four offshore offices spread around Vietnam, Evolable Asia became a publicly traded company on the Tokyo Stock Exchange on March 31, 2016. It also opened headquarters in Silicon Valley early last year.
Evolable Asia has partnered with airlines, railway companies, and accommodation facilities to provide various tourism services. Among its partners are Japan’s largest airline All Nippon Airways (ANA), Peach Aviation, Japan Airline (JAL) and East Japan Railway Company.
The company offers an integrated mobile travel service platform called Airtrip, available for iOS and Android. In February, it also entered into the currency exchange business and launched a subsidiary called Airtrip Exchange.

The aim of the exchange service is to meet the needs of foreign travelers, especially during times which banks are not open. Subsequently, through a partnership with leading Japanese telecommunication service company Vision Inc., Airtrip Exchange opened two booths in April and the third one on June 1. The exchanges currently handle 12 major currencies, but will soon add bitcoin exchange as well, Evolable Asia announced.
What do you think about Evolable Asia bringing bitcoin payments and exchange services to 1400+ accommodation facilities across Japan? Let us know in the comments section below.

A growing legal dispute between the customers of a now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange and the business itself has ensnared one of the industry's largest and best-funded startups.

Former customers of the exchange alleged in a complaint filed in December that Cryptsy and its CEO, Paul Vernon, laundered millions of dollars-worth of their funds through Coinbase over a several-year period as part of a bid to abscond with their money.

At the heart of the argument is that Coinbase, as a regulated money services business in more than 30 states, should have known that the approximately $8.3m in funds – which Vernon allegedly claimed were derived from Cryptsy’s profits, as well as his own activities – came from a questionable source.

The backstory: The case represents the last twist in the long-running Cryptsy saga.

Once one of the most voluminous exchanges for alternative digital currencies, Cryptsy collapsed in late 2015 after months of escalating service issues. Trading was ultimately suspended in early January of 2016, and just days later, the exchange went offline amid claims of insolvency and concealed theft.

A class action lawsuit, filed in Florida, soon followed, with a court-appointed receiver taking control of Cryptsy's assets in the spring of 2016, setting the stage of a settlement agreement between users and Vernon's ex-spouse, who was also named in the original suit.

Vernon, who has not responded in court to the suit, has denied allegations that he stole millions of dollars worth of funds from users.

The current saga: It's those funds that are at the center of the case between the class-action users and Coinbase.

Coinbase, which declined to comment on the lawsuit when reached for comment, sought to negotiate the dispute through arbitration, citing user agreements Vernon signed when he and Cryptsy first began exchanging funds through Coinbase. Further, the startup asked the court to stay the case pending that arbitration, as well as prevent discovery from taking place.

Yet, in a court order from 1st June, Judge Kenneth A Marra shot down Coinbase’s motions to compel arbitration and to stay discovery, arguing that Cryptsy users weren't bound by the agreements signed by Vernon.

Attorney David Silver, one of the lawyers representing the users, reiterated those arguments in an interview with CoinDesk.

"We believe that Cryptsy users that did not sign the contract with Coinbase were entitled to their day in court and be judged by a jury of their peers," he said."[W]e're quite happy the court agreed with us, and this case is going to move forward in the public light."

He said that Cryptsy's body of users have been waiting years for some kind of resolution, highlighting how the value of bitcoin has risen sharply in that time.

"The users we represent from Cryptsy, they’ve been killed," said Silver.

What comes next: Judge Marra's decision effectively blocks any effort to resolve the case out of court, setting the stage for discovery and for the suit to advance.

A broader class-action suit – in which Crypsty users have sought to reacquire funds lost during the exchange's collapse – is also moving ahead.

According to Silver, the legal team behind the class-action suit is gearing up for its first distribution of funds, gleaned from the settlement with Vernon's ex-spouse – a process he said should take place over the next several months. In the meantime, he said, the case filed against Cryptsy will continue following Marra's ruling.

"We're gonna hit the ground running," said Silver.
