Multi-Billion-Dollar Store Domino’s Pizza Now Accepts Bitcoin

Multi-Billion-Dollar Store, Domino’s Pizza Now Accepts Bitcoin

by Dalmas Ngetich – February 14, 2019

Well, Bitcoin hodling just got harder, you can now buy your favorite pizza from Domino’s Pizza via the Lightning Network while enjoying negligible fees. What’s more? Transaction settles in less than 30 seconds—which is near instantaneous if you ask me—and delivery time is within 30 minutes from anywhere in the US.

While there are no details on whether Bitcoins are accepted in all of their 13,811 stores spread out across the globe including China, there is no doubt that Bitcoin, Lightning Network and general adoption is gaining traction.

For starters, Domino’s Pizza is a public company with shares traded at the world’s second largest stock operator by market cap, NYSE as DPZ. The company revenue by financial year 2017 stood at $2.47 billion translating to $214.68 million in profits. Domino’s Pizza now joins Paragliding of Switzerland, Nanotorch, Spendl, Vape Store and Pollo Feed in a long list of merchants experimenting with the future of money.

Why Lightning Network

Although there is furore on how and why the Lightning Network (LN) operates, it is the next thing close to Bitcoin scaling. On their homepage, LN proponents say the off-chain platform guarantees instant transactions while simultaneously scaling the notoriously hard to “scale” public blockchain.

Elizabeth Stark’s developed solution bring forth instant payments without a worry of block confirmation times because “security is enforced by blockchain smart-contracts without creating an on-blockchain transaction for individual payments.”

Besides, the network is designed for speed, eliminating bottlenecks and can as a result process millions if not billions of transactions per second “blowing away legacy payment rails by many orders of magnitude.” Speed and scalability have a causative effect, slashing down costs and allowing one to pay for Pizza without worrying about high fees.

LN Capacity is Swelling

Through these properties, it is not hard to see why the LN has grown by leaps and bounds even while in Beta.

Statistics indicate that the network’s nodes are up 15.23 percent to 6,242 boosting the number of opened channels to 25,841—up 30.9 percent. Network’s capacity is up 36 percent to 673.85 BTC meaning LN can process $2.4 million worth of transactions.

These possibilities alone present an opportunity for one of the many investors in Lightning Labs including Jack Dorsey. The entrepreneur is behind Twitter and Square-both are multi-billion business tradable in leading American Exchange. In a Stephan Livera hosted podcast, he revealed that Cash App will soon integrate LN:

“We would love to make [Bitcoin] as fast and efficient and transactional as possible, and that includes looking at our seller base and register. It’s not an ‘if;’ it’s more of a ‘when’ – how do we make sure that we’re getting the speed that we need and the efficiency?”

Nasdaq Invest in Blockchain Technology Pushing For Crypto And Blockchain Adoption

Nasdaq Invest in Blockchain Technology, Pushing For Crypto And Blockchain Adoption

Nasdaq has decided to take a step forward in the push for blockchain technologies and adoption of cryptocurrencies, investing a substantial amount of money recently in the financing of a startup that develops Enterprise blockchain solutions.

According to an official press release, Symbiont successfully closed a $20m Series B funding round. Nasdaq Ventures led the round which also included investors such as Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital, Citi and Raptor Group among others.

The money will be used to promote the growth of Assembly, a blockchain platform created by the company with support for Smart contracts and tokenization solutions.

Symbiont CEO and Co-founder Mark Smith expressed his enthusiasm after the success of having obtained the support of such important sponsors:

“Closing this round of funding enables us to accelerate investments in our platform and team … Leveraging our financial markets and blockchain technology experience, our anchor partners like Vanguard, Lewis Ranieri, and Nasdaq will benefit from developing new distributed applications on Assembly, our enterprise blockchain and smart contract platform. Assembly provides the opportunity for new participants to enter the digital asset market and offers existing participants a superior infrastructure on which to build the future of financial markets.”

Nasdaq also expressed its optimism and confidence in Symbiont’s success. For Gary Offner, Head of Nasdaq Ventures, products like Assembly can contribute to the economic growth of many companies on a global scale:

“We are committed to discovering and investing in innovative technologies to help build our future market infrastructure used by more than 100 marketplaces around the world … Our investment will also include the integration of Symbiont’s enterprise blockchain and smart contract platform into the Nasdaq Financial Framework. We are pleased to support this important, growing area for creating unique institutional applications of blockchain technology.”

Despite the bearish behavior of the crypto market in 2018 and the pessimism of many, Adena Friedman, President, and CEO of Nasdaq remains optimistic about the impact of the cryptocurrencies in the future. She is also determined to launch Bitcoin Futures and maybe an exchange if conditions are favorable. She recently addressed her followers on LinkedIn commenting on her impressions:

“It is difficult to ignore the huge amount that investors, including some of the most sophisticated global investors, have poured into digital currencies in recent years. The invention itself is a tremendous demonstration of genius and creativity, and it deserves an opportunity to find a sustainable future in our economy … At Nasdaq, we are working to help cryptocurrencies gain investors’ trust by offering our technology for trade matching, clearing, and trade integrity to start-up exchanges. We have also invested in ErisX, an institutional marketplace for cryptocurrency spot and futures. While this year will be another proving ground for cryptocurrencies, we believe digital currencies will have a role in the future. The extent of its impact will depend on the evolution of regulation and broader institutional adoption.

Blockchain Investor Claims Bitcoin BTC Will Plunge To 0

Blockchain Investor Claims Bitcoin (BTC) Will Plunge To $0

Economists Bash Bitcoin In The Swiss Alps

Bashing Bitcoin (BTC) has apparently become a popular trend at Davos’ recent World Economic Forum event. More specifically, the cryptocurrency has become a punching bag. Just yesterday, per previous reports from Ethereum World News, Huw Van Steenis, the senior advisor to Bank of England’s governor, Mark Carney, bashed this nascent asset class.

Speaking to Bloomberg in a candid interview, Steenis, who purportedly is compiling a report about the future of finance, surprisingly claimed that cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin aren’t on his radar, or list of concerns for that matter. The former Morgan Stanley economist then remarked that blockchain-based assets “fail” the basic tests that financial services are de-facto run through. Steenis explained that BTC, along with other digital assets, is slow, fail to hold their value over time, and aren’t a viable, bonafide Medium of Exchange (MoE).

Tech Investor Claims BTC Will Fall To $0

Just one day later, BTC fell victim to another attack, as a technology investor and entrepreneur took to a CNBC-hosted panel to bash the blockchain-based digital asset. According to CNBC post-mortem on the manner, Jeff Schumacher, the founder of BCG Digital Ventures, a corporate investment and tech incubator group, claimed that the flagship cryptocurrency could capitulate to a value of zilch eventually.

Speaking to a crowd of economists, global leaders, notable investors, and corporate C-suiters, Schumacher explained that he “believes it will go to zero,” adding that he thinks that it (or the technology underlying Bitcoin) is a “great technology.” However, the BCG founder made it clear that he doesn’t think that blockchain technologies should be applied to currencies, accentuating that its underlying value isn’t based on anything. Like many traditionalists with a vested interest in the centralized system, Schumacher fails to see the value of a decentralized, immutable, cross-border, rapid, uncensorable current that transcends the boundaries imposed by financial incumbents.

Instead of lauding blockchain technologies for their potential revolutionary use cases in finance, Schumacher instead touched on the innovation’s ability to facilitate “open decentralized ecosystems,” which would be the global protocols and infrastructure that businesses could run on.

Yet, some weren’t in agreement with Schumacher’s inflammatory quip. Glenn Hutchins, the chairman of Virtu-affiliated North Island, a financial technology services company, claimed that BTC will likely grow to have a notable role as a Store of Value (SoV). Hutchins noted that BTC’s role “in the system” could be as pseudo-gold in a digital economy, rife with arrays of tokens that serve every use case imaginable.

Hutchins isn’t the only notable investor to think of Bitcoin as a digital semblance of the orange-esque precious metal. As reported by Ethereum World News multiple times previously, a number of pundits have overtly claimed that BTC’s foremost use case is as digital gold.

Alistair Milne, the CIO of Digital Currency Fund, claimed that Bitcoin has seen its Store of Value (SoV) proposition become more apparent. More specifically, he noted that Bitcoin’s investors are now “very aware that BTC is like trading gold with 100x leverage,” along with the fact that the flagship cryptocurrency’s inflation rate will be lower than that of the precious metal. And, as “no one appears to doubt the usefulness of gold,”

The Winklevoss Twins, the co-founders of the Gemini Exchange, recently claimed that Bitcoin “better at being gold than gold itself.” Twin Tyler noted that as this industry continues to develop, BTC will continue eating up bits of gold’s market capitalization, until the newfangled cryptocurrency passes its (arguably worse) physical counterpart.

Lou Kerner has also recently chimed in on the matter. Kerner, the founding partner at CryptoOracle, divulged that the cryptocurrency’s portability, ease-of-use, divisibility, and scarcity, make it a viable alternative to precious metals, and will allow BTC to eventually surmount its quintuple-digit cell.

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Litigation: What to Expect in 2019

Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Litigation: What to Expect in 2019


Image Source

2018 was an eventful year in general when it comes to blockchains and cryptocurrencies. Digital currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum suffered huge trading losses last year with the former nearing towards the $3,000 mark by the end of the year. Another notable trend from last year is the rise of blockchain and cryptocurrency related lawsuits, triggering SEC chairman Jay Clayton to announce a crackdown on the industry. This is why different industries have called 2019 the make or break year for these technologies. Now what is in store for laws and litigation regarding digital currencies and blockchains then? Let us find out.

Defining Cryptocurrencies as Securities

Over the years, there seemed to be a never-ending debate as to how cryptocurrencies are defined whether as a currency or an investment. These arguments may be nearing an end this year. A landmark federal court ruling has declared that cryptocurrencies, particularly those under initial coin offerings (ICO), may be subject to securities laws. In United States vs. Zaslaviskiy, the grand jury ruled that the cryptocurrency purchases the defendant has persuaded its investors to buy under his companies are considered as investment contracts. This means individuals and companies who purchased cryptocurrencies as funding for a business or enterprise can count it as an investment and is protected by the law. It also legally solidifies the SEC’s stand that the current securities regulations are sufficient enough to cover cryptocurrencies, blockchains and possibly other fintech investments in the future. Finally, this ruling can also lead to a clearer definition of what these technologies are in the eyes of the law.

Pushing for More Regulations

Despite the federal court ruling and SEC’s stand on cryptocurrency investments, the pressure for tougher regulations is still on for 2019. With the trading rate for cryptocurrencies remaining on the lower end and securities lawsuits regarding ICOs increasing, both the government and cryptocurrency institutions need to evolve. Creating a legal framework or adding supporting regulations specific to these technologies, like what France, South Korea and China did, can help with institutionalizing digital assets and similar investments. New laws that protect cryptocurrency and blockchain owners, traders and investors will surely encourage other institutions to adapt these technologies and bring it to more people.

Smart Contracts

Another factor that cryptocurrency and blockchain litigators are looking into this year are smart contracts. This is a type of blockchain technology that converts contracts into a computer code and is stored and managed by a network. It basically simplifies transactions and deals with money, property or any type of asset as it self-executes contract terms, liabilities and penalties.

While some lawyers see smart contracts as a threat, it can be a useful tool for them especially when it comes to documentation and paper trails. The transparent and self-executory nature of these contracts will help them in the event that these transactions are challenged in court.

There are a lot of exciting legal developments to look forward to as more institutions open up to the possibility of adapting cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. More questions and situations will will eventually come up, but the industry remains positive about the growth of these technologies and the new rules and regulations that will come with it.

Marshall Island Hires Malta’s Strategic Advisor to Assist in the Issue of an Official Cryptocurrency

Marshall Island Hires Malta’s Strategic Advisor to Assist in the Issue of an Official Cryptocurrency

The government of the Marshall Islands, headed by Hilda Heine, stands firm in its efforts to issue an official cryptocurrency as a mechanism for optimizing financial services and avoiding an exclusive dependence on US Dollars to ensure the proper functioning of banking operations.

“Sovereign” (SOV) is the token that the government of the island created by presidential decree and will circulate together with the U.S Dollar as the official currency of the nation.

 

After the presidential decree was approved, continued pressure from the United States and the International Monetary Fund led a group of congressmen to issue a no-confidence motion against the president in an attempt to make the U.S. currency the only legal tender accepted in the country.

However, the project is still underway, and to ensure fulfillment of the objectives, the government has contracted the services of none other than Mr. Steve Tendon, Managing Director of TameFlow Consulting / ChainStrategies, a firm that provides technical advice and development strategies designed to promote the use of blockchain technologies.

The Marshall Islands Rely on Tendon’s Successful Experience With Malta

According to a Press Release, Dr. Peter Dittus, former Secretary General of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), Mr. Tendon’s support may be crucial for the Marshall Islands to meet the goal of having an official crypto that meets all the requirements needed for massive adoption:

“With Steve working alongside Neema, we are growing closer every day to support the Marshall Islands with issuing the first digital legal tender and launching a financial services economy around it."

Steve Tendon’s participation and experience were crucial for the Maltese government to become a Blockchain Island. In 2016 he was a strategic adviser for the Ministry of Economy, Investment and Small Business (MEIB) of the Maltese Government, developing Malta’s National Blockchain Strategy which would then be approved by the cabinet of ministers the following year. He then advised the Financial Services, Digital Economy and Innovation (FSDEI) Office of the Prime Minister on matters related to the implementation of Malta’s Blockchain Strategy.

The government of the Marshall Islands, aware of the results obtained from Malta’s experience, gave Tendon some critical responsibilities:

“Steve is one of the foremost experts in blockchain technology and regulations … (He) will assist with the drafting and designing of regulations to develop a blockchain financial services economy out of the Marshall Islands."

Bitcoin Scams and How to Avoid Them

Bitcoin Scams and How to Avoid Them


Image Source

Bitcoin has taken the world by storm, and since its introduction in 2008, it has inevitably faced several controversies. Scammers found a gold mine in the digital currency for many reasons. One of them is the fact that only a few people understand it, which makes it easier to make them believe false promises. Another reason is anonymity – cryptocurrency gives scammers relative ease to cover their tracks. Lastly, a major reason is that it is largely unregulated. Bitcoin chiefly operates outside of the conventions of a financial system; and this worries regulators as it has the potential to be linked to money laundering, tax evasion, fraud, and terrorist funding.

What are the most common bitcoin scams and how do you spot them?

Fake Bitcoin Exchanges. One popular example for these would be South Korea's BitKRX, which posed to be a branch of the country's Korean Exchange (KRX) and claimed to be a platform to exchange and trade bitcoin. Ultimately, it turned out to be fraudulent. There are also those that pretend to be connected with well-known exchanges using apps or fake websites; users are scammed when they log in and their account details are given away. When you are directed to a website, make sure that the URL has “HTTPS” rather than just “HTTP.” Without the letter S, it means that the web traffic has no security and encryption.

Ponzi Scams. Someone promises an incredible return of investment using bitcoin and a lot of people buy in it. Before you know it, someone runs off with all of your money. That's basically how Ponzi schemes work. At first, victims will be made to believe that it actually works – say, the digits in their bank account are increasing. This will also make them talk about its “success” and convince others to join in. Eventually, calls to the customer service are unanswered, there are technical problems with the website, or the money will be remitted late – among several excuses while your money disappears for good. If you see ads that sound like, “double your bitcoin overnight,” they're probably scams. How it usually works is you have to send them your money first before they can double it.

Pyramid Schemes. Scammers use bitcoin as a product in pyramid scams. In these schemes, your low initial investment will be multiplied if you invite more people to sign up. After a lot of people have invested their money, the original scammer walks away with all the money.

Malware. Hackers have long been using malware in order to get a hold of other people's login credentials and account details. Now, it's being used to drain Bitcoin wallets that are connected to the Internet.

How do you avoid falling into these scams?

 

  • If the offer is too good to be true, stay away from it.
  • Be vigilant on social media – legitimate bitcoin traders and brokers can be victims of poser accounts or impersonators.
  • Never conduct financial transactions via direct messages on social media platforms.
  • Do your homework and research on services and platforms you encounter; verify their claims and check their legitimacy or whether they are a registered corporation or not.

There’s A Giant White Sewer Rat In Wall Street And It’s Preaching Bitcoin

There’s A Giant White Sewer Rat In Wall Street And It’s Preaching Bitcoin

There’s a really interesting piece of art down in Wall Street that has captured the people’s attention for some time now. It’s a rat, and a really huge one for that matter.

Nelson Saiers And The Rat

This new phenomenon sits across the street right opposite the Federal Reserve building. However, it’s not the giant white inflatable rat that’s been stirring up Wall Street, but rather what it actually represents. The man responsible for the huge rat’s existence on America’s most popular street is one Nelson Saiers. Nelson spent the better part of his life as a hedge fund manager in Wall Street until he stopped trading in 2014. Since then, Nelson has dedicated his time to revealing the ills of the traditional financial system that he believes is way too broken to survive in the long run.

To better put his point across, this man has opted to use art. In fact, he’s not alone in this line of thinking. There have been numerous cases of people using art to speak to the public about the broken system. Often, they leave spectacular pieces of art or paintings on buildings all across cities. Such art has been spotted in a number of the world’s most popular cities – including France’s Paris.

The Federal Reserve Vs Bitcoin

In precise terms, the huge inflatable sewer rat bearing down on the US Federal Reserve building has its body covered with art depicting Bitcoin code, a spectacle that symbolizes Nelson’s perception of a better financial system as opposed to the mainstream centralized system. In his view, a decentralized crypto ecosystem would do much better than the current system that operates under the tight grip of the authorities.

Indeed, the last two decades have seen various artists come out to use their talents to depict the apparent financial inequalities in the current system. One of the most prominent artists in this school of thought is Banksy. In Banksy’s opinion, a rat is a symbol of resilience and freedom, saying that rats exist without permission and have zero attachment to conservative societal standards. Back in 2016, Andreas Antonopoulous referred to Bitcoin as the “sewer rat of currencies.” Andreas is computer scientist. He went on to give the imagery of an injured but dynamic and robust financial system represented by the sewer rat.

Nicknamed “The Warhol of Wall Street,” Nelson’s ambition doesn’t start or end with the giant white inflatable sewer rat bearing down on the Federal Reserve building. This isn’t his first such project. In fact, he plans to remove the rat once its point is home. With such things happening, Bitcoin seems to be gaining more traction in terms of popularity and credibility as the valid alternative to the restrictive traditional financial system. Could such acts cause a Bitcoin bull run?

From Crimefighter to ‘Crypto’: Meet the Woman in Charge of Venture Capital’s Biggest Gamble

From Crimefighter to 'Crypto': Meet the Woman in Charge of Venture Capital’s Biggest Gamble

Kathryn Haun was the Justice Department's go-to prosecutor for Bitcoin-related felonies. Now she's one of cryptocurrency's most important investors. Here's why her career change is a watershed moment.

Debate

“Let’s settle this!” an announcer rumbles over loudspeakers.

The “this” in question is one of the more important business disputes of the moment: Are alternative currencies like Bitcoin the future of financial services or a 21st-century Ponzi scheme? To get resolution, a Mexican data center company called KIO Networks is hosting a debate in a smoke-filled arena in the graffiti-coated Hipódromo Condesa neighborhood of Mexico City. The atmosphere screams lucha libre, the stylized form of Mexican wrestling that features acrobatic moves and dramatic masks.

On this late-September evening, the main event features two intellectual heavyweights from the United States, both highly credentialed, neither wearing disguises. In one corner is Paul Krugman, the New York Times columnist and Nobel laureate in economics. In the other is Kathryn Haun, an accomplished federal prosecutor recently turned venture capitalist.

Krugman’s position is predictable. He sees the rise of cryptocurrency networks—decentralized digital services that run on computerized money like Bitcoin—as an unnecessary throwback to a distant era, when precious metals made up the money supply. “I don’t believe we’re at the dawn of a new age,” he says. He delivers a smackdown on an investment craze that the likes of Jamie Dimon and Warren Buffett have repeatedly pooh-poohed: “I think 15 years from now, it will look a lot like Pets.com.”

Haun sees things differently. To her, virtual currencies and the technologies that underpin them are society’s saviors: a last great hope at reclaiming power gobbled up by greedy banks and Internet monopolists. “Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google, they control all the rules,” she says. “They have all the users. They have all the power.” The new technology, Haun argues, allows eager, entrepreneurial developers to compete. She throws her weight behind the democratizing dream of the new technology’s acolytes.

Photo by Christie Hemm Klok for Fortune

Cryptocurrency is “in the dial-up days,” says Haun, “and the critics are confusing the current state of innovation with the end state of innovation.”

Haun largely wins over the crowd, a collection of the megalopolis’s tech elite. And they like her visuals too. At the outset of her talk, five giant screens project the mug shots of corrupt U.S. law-enforcement officials she convicted in her previous career. But the audience isn’t enamored of Haun merely because she once was the sheriff in the Wild West of “crypto.” She excites them because now she’s joined their side. As one of the newest partners of the estimable Silicon Valley venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, Haun’s job is to find the next big thing in cryptocurrencies—and to help their founders succeed while staying on the right side of the law.

Haun is making her career shift at a precarious time. Cryptocurrency markets have been in free fall all year. A global speculative mania for virtual coins that sent valuations above $800 billion in January has dwindled to $200 billion. Bitcoin has lost two-thirds of its value, and Ethereum, the second-biggest cryptocurrency, is down 90%.

Haun and her new partners are undaunted. Investment crazes often spawn bubbles. But what’s left after they pop, if the true believers are right, are new industries. Firm cofounder Marc Andreessen, after all, parlayed his work developing the first commercial browser into Netscape, the flawed startup that helped beget the World Wide Web—and many billions of dollars in investment returns for the Internet industry. Haun also is unfazed by her lack of professional investing experience. “For entrepreneurs to want to work with you, they need to think you have some strategic vision, some hustle, and an ability to get the job done,” she says. These are the same skills, she posits, that a prosecutor needs to persuade FBI agents and others to work with them.

Bridging worlds, then, is one of Haun’s chief attributes. “She has this rare blend of having been in government and having a business-centric mind,” says David Marcus, a senior Facebook executive who sat on a corporate board with Haun. Adds Anthony Kennedy, the newly retired associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, for whom Haun clerked: “I’m quite reassured that someone with her talents and background would go into this new area.” Her involvement “is a tremendously important link between the law and the cyber age. And she recognizes that.”

Bitcoin Break $3,000 Do Not Miss This

The price of bitcoin topped $3,000 for the first time in history today, according to the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (BPI).

If you want to double your bitcoin every 40-50 days then we have a platform for you that you do not want to miss. [Ckick Here] or copy and paste in your browser http://hivepush.com/ekjxanbwtw/1096

After spending much of the last week seeking direction in the $2,700 to $2,900-range, the average price of bitcoin across major international exchanges edged up over this threshold finally at roughly 17:00 UTC.

The new record comes at a time when alternative digital assets are seeing robust inflows, with ethereum's ether token setting a new all-time high of more than $300 today as well.

Indeed, analysts spoke to the ongoing broadening of the cryptocurrency market as a tide that is benefitting bitcoin.

"The inflows into 'alts' are greater than those into bitcoin. In other words, bitcoin is growing at a very nice pace, but non-bitcoin cryptocurrencies are growing even faster," cryptocurrency hedge fund manager Tim Enneking told CoinDesk.

Jehan Chu, managing partner at cryptocurrency fund Jen Advisors, agreed, noting that bitcoin is likely benefitting from new investor interest and the surging interest of "cryptos like ether".

Still, Arthur Hayes, founder of Hong Kong-based digital currency exchange BitMEX, stated that bitcoin is still the "most talked-about cryptocurrency", even as returns become more substantial in other areas of the market.

Hayes told CoinDesk:

"As investors marvel at bitcoin's historical returns and the returns of altcoins, their natural first purchase is bitcoin. Bitcoin has under performed other coins this year, it is now playing catchup."

Investor Sean Walsh largely agreed, pointing to bitcoin's growing price as a sign of its place in the market as the first stop on a road to other assets.

"Bitcoin still seems like the dominant gateway to [alternative digital assets]. So, many first purchase bitcoin in order to then trade their bitcoin for altcoins," he noted.

The development coincides with signs that the cryptocurrency market is maturing to support new inflows and increasing interest.

As noted by CoinDesk research analyst Alex Sunnarborg today, the cryptocurrency exchange market has never been more globally diverse or buoyed by such an array of possible inflows.

Such tailwinds have combined in recent weeks to bring new investor attention to bitcoin, with expectations for bitcoin's growth becoming more and more exuberant. Danish investment firm Saxo Bank went so far as to publish a forecasting report in which it placed the possible value of bitcoin at $100,000 in the next 10 years.
