4/16/14 Video News - Nick Szabo as Satoshi, Mt. Gox liquidates, ATMs in Brazil & China

Video: http://www.moneyandtech.com/apr16-news-update/
Today's top news stories for you in Money & Tech:
The mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto has been found… again. A group of forensic linguistics experts at Aston University lead by Dr. Jack Grieve have analyzed the original Bitcoin whitepaper, comparing it to the writing of 11 individuals previously thought to be Satoshi Nakamoto. Their conclusion: former law professor Nick Szabo is the primary author of the whitepaper and therefore the probable creator, or one of the creators, of bitcoin. As Dr. Grieve put it, “The number of linguistic similarities between Szabo’s writing and the bitcoin whitepaper is uncanny... though we can’t rule out the possibility that others contributed.""
The Tokyo District Court today dismissed Mt. Gox's proposal for a civil rehabilitation proceeding, despite the recent offer from a group of industry investors to purchase and resurrect the company for the price of one Bitcoin. Instead today, Mt. Gox filed for liquidation in Tokyo court, which the exchange admitted “will create great inconvenience and concerns to our creditors for which we apologize.”
At the same time, Gox CEO Mark Karpeles has filed an emergency motion to push back his US court appearance until May 5th, which could threaten the continuation of Karpeles' US bankruptcy protections, and provide US class action lawsuit attorneys the time to do more research and build their case.
The President of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis expressed interest in digital currency at a town hall at North Dakota State University on Tuesday, saying its main interest lies in its ability for speedy payments between individuals, ”as opposed to a new currency that’s going to drive the U.S. dollar out of circulation.” This statement comes days after an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago acknowledged that bitcoin is a “remarkable technical achievement”, and VP at the St. Louis Fed called bitcoin “a stroke of genius“.
Latin America's first bitcoin ATM landed in Brazil on Monday, at a Sao Paulo bar already accepting Bitcoin, and blocks away from international offices of Facebook, Google, J.P. Morgan and Goldman Sachs. The new Lamassu machine allows locals to convert their Brazilian Real into Bitcoin, and offers businesses like the Sao Paulo bar an option to operate without the high transactions fees typical of local banks.
In China, BTC China has installed the country's first bitcoin ATM machine as promised, located in a cafe at a mall in Shanghai, allowing people to physically change Chinese yuan into Bitcoin for the first time.
The Bitcoin Foundation and Blockchain.info have co-created the first annual Blockchain Awards to celebrate innovation and excellence in the Bitcoin community. The awards ceremony will be held in Amsterdam on May 16th at the Bitcoin 2014 conference. Nominations will be accepted today through May 6th for categories such as, Most Impactful Charity, Best ATM Design, and Bitcoin Champion.
Money & Tech’s Perianne Boring attended the recent Inside Bitcoins New York conference. We’ll be bringing you her interviews with notable industry figures this week, starting today with Blockchain.info CEO Nicholas Cary and Cryptsy CEO Paul Vernon, available here shortly.

4/14/14 - China, BTC-e, Side Chains, Blockchain 1.5M wallets, Isracoin, Neo & Bee

http://www.moneyandtech.com/apr14-news-update/
Start off your week with today's top news updates in Money & Tech:
Chinese exchanges aren't letting the threat of bank closures slow them down. OKCoin and BTC China are both now planning to introduce bitcoin ATMs soon, as they and other exchanges in China adjust their business models and services to work around the central bank's restrictions. Huobi even went so far as to include a warning to the PBOC in its recent statement, saying “If online trading platforms that are following the rules have to stop services, bitcoin transactions will go offline where they will be unmonitored, and will result in even more difficulty regulating.”
Digital currency exchange BTC-e was down briefly on Sunday, following a powerful DDoS (or distributed denial of service) attack against its servers. BTC-e was quick to confirm the attack and dispel fears, assuring users that it was just a minor problem, with no security breach, and would be fixed quickly. True to their word, the exchange now appears to be back up and running.
Developer Adam Back and Canadian entrepreneur and investor Austin Hill have come up with a way to expand bitcoin’s functionality with "two-way pegging". With this concept, bitcoins could be moved back and forth between the bitcoin block chain and another block chain called a side chain. But they will need the support of the open source community to make changes to the Bitcoin protocol. Some developers are skeptical, but Back and Hill are confident they will have the support they need, and more official plans by mid-May.
Blockchain.info has now surpassed the 1.5M mark for downloads of its web wallet, just three months after hitting 1M in January. We spoke with CEO Nicholas Cary, who told us that "The team at Blockchain would like to thank the bitcoin community for its trust and support. We firmly believe that putting users first is the way to go. It is our mission to provide tools and services that build upon bitcoins core strengths and we look forward to building a better world through better money."
Beginning on midnight of May 6th, Israel's new cryptocurrency Isracoin will launch into the first of its four phases, with an airdrop of 500 coins to interested businesses, and an ultimate goal of sending 50,000 coins. Iceland attempted something similar last month with the airdrop of their own national altcoin Auroracoin. However, it suffered a 51% attack and the ledger was forked into multiple versions, essentially rendering the cryptocurrency valueless.
Cyprus police issued a warrant for the arrest of Neo & Bee CEO Danny Brewster on Friday, formally charging him with fraud in his failure to deliver £70,000 worth of Bitcoins to investors, as well as his employees, many of whom were never paid for March.
Money & Tech’s Perianne Boring attended the recent Inside Bitcoins New York conference and we’ll be bringing you her interviews from that event later this week. But in the meantime, enjoy a recap of our previous event coverage from CoinSummit, available here shortly.
