Bitcoin ATM: What should know?
Bitcoin ATM is a simple machine that is used for the sale and purchase of Bitcoin using debit and credit cards. Although Bitcoin has been there in the market for more than a decade now when it comes to Bitcoin ATM, these are a fairly new addition and easy to use and makes it easy for those who wish to exchange Bitcoin do that with ease.
The world got its first Bitcoin ATM in Vancouver, Canada, in 2013. At this ATM, the Bitcoin stalwarts can easily buy Bitcoin using the currency. This ATM is used to convert Bitcoin to Canadian Dollars and vice-versa. After this, Bitcoin ATMs have become very common. As of October 1st, 2020, there were around 10,503 Bitcoin ATMs globally.
Types of Bitcoin ATM:
There are two types of Bitcoin ATM:
· The basic one: These are used only to purchase Bitcoin
· Complex ones- These are used to buy and sell with virtual money. If you plan to use complex ATMs, you need to know that only the members of a particular ATM producer can use the ATM.
Some of the key players that are in the making of complex Bitcoin ATM are General Bytes, Genesis Coin. General Bytes has a market share of 30.3%, and Genesis Coin has a market share of 30.3 %.
The US has the highest number of Bitcoin ATM. Around 83% of the total global ATMs are located in North America.
Bitcoin exchange using General ATM
This is a general process of Bitcoin exchange using Bitcoin ATM, there may be slight variation in this, but the general process remains the same:
  1. The first step is verification (this may vary based on machine
  2. Now, you need to provide a Bitcoin address for deposit at some ATM.
  3. Insert cash into the ATM
  4. Confirm the operation (Bitcoin is sent to your Bitcoin address)
This is the basic step; however, you may find some variation in this based on ATM type. This is the right time to start investing in bitcoin, and with the prevalence of Bitcoin ATM, the task will become simpler.

Bitcoin-Friendly Countries

Bitcoin-Friendly Countries
Cryptocurrencies are a new asset that appeared only in 2009 with the first decentralized cryptocurrency – Bitcoin. The authorities of most countries haven’t managed yet how to develop its regulation, but there are already those who have introduced a strict prohibition against digital money, and those who have legalized cryptocurrencies in full.
by StealthEX
Today we prepared for you the list of some of the most Bitcoin-Friendly countries, where blockchain technology is closely intertwining with the life of ordinary people.

The United States of America

From the very beginning, the USA has been one of the pioneers of building the crypto-friendly society. Not surprisingly the United States has the largest number of crypto users and the largest number of Bitcoin’s ATMs in the world.
Today a lot of blockchain startups are working in Silicon Valley like BlockCypher, ThunderCore, Blockstream, CipherTrace, Cryptanna, MakerDAO, Coinbase and many others.

Canada

Canada can boast of two cities that are considered as “Bitcoin hubs” Toronto and Vancouver. Cryptocurrency itself is regulated by laws against money laundering and terrorism financing in Canada.
In this country there is a very lively crypto community and many blockchain startups like Decentral, Vanbex Group were launched here. Nowadays thousands of organizations accepting BTC and other cryptocurrencies for payment are located in Canada.

The United Kingdom

The UK is considered one of the world’s leading financial and innovation centers. Therefore, in this country, there are also numerous blockchain-related projects. The United Kingdom is sure that the popularization of a new payment solution is inevitable and now preparing for the massive adoption of cryptocurrencies. Nowadays you can easily order a pint of beer in some local pubs and pay for it using BTC.
Moreover, the Bank of England is closely monitoring cryptocurrency technologies and even asked the public to put forward ideas on how to improve their monetary constitution. Currently, Bitcoin is regarded as “private money”, where VAT is collected in the usual way from suppliers of any goods or services sold.

Netherlands

This country can be proud not only for being Bitcoin-friendly but also for having its own “Bitcoin City” called Arnhem. Here, almost everything can be purchased using crypto coins, including gas, housing, bicycles, and even dental services.
At the legislative level, cryptocurrencies are not yet regulated in accordance with the Dutch Financial Supervision Act, and as a result, numerous blockchain startups and even the Bitcoin Embassy in the center of Amsterdam have occurred.
In addition, the country’s banking sector, including ABN AMRO Bank and ING, is increasingly considering blockchain technology as a way to improve their own system and reduce costs. Netherlands is a regular participant in conferences regarding the development of Bitcoin.

Japan

Many people believe that this is the birthplace of the famous Satoshi Nakamoto – the creator of Bitcoin. The country is the first and only one that has a proper legal system regulating the trade in digital currencies.
Moreover, the authorities of this country are considering launching Japan’s own national cryptocurrency – digital Yen. Today Japan is of the largest cryptocurrency market.

Malta

In February 2018, the Government of Malta decided to support blockchain-related projects, cryptocurrencies, and ICOs. That’s why many companies are considering moving to this paradise blockchain-island. At the same time, Malta is one of the leaders in online gaming and there are many implemented projects that connect blockchain technology with the gaming industry.

Sweden

Sweden is among countries that want to eliminate paper money in favor of 100% digital currency. The Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority (Finansinspektionen) has legitimized the fast-growing crypto industry by publicly announcing Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) as a means of payment.
Sweden is home to numerous blockchain-based startups, including Safello, Starflow, Norbloc, Strawpay.

Switzerland

Historically, Switzerland has always been famous for the level of its banking system and banking secrecy, so it is not surprising that the authorities of this country didn’t prohibit the circulation of digital currencies.
This country has become a kind of “tax haven” for cryptocurrencies. That’s why many blockchain startups started here and organize the headquarters of their business.

Estonia

This small country is also open to innovative technologies. The government implemented blockchain technology to the healthcare system, banking services and even management, allowing its citizens to be among the first to use municipal and state services via the Internet. With one of the highest levels of Internet penetration in the world, Estonia has a good opportunity to become cryptocurrency capital of Europe.
All the listed countries have demonstrated their hospitality to cryptocurrencies. But of course this is not the comprehensive list and as the crypto community will continue to grow the more countries will be ready to use the advantages of blockchain technology.
We will be delighted to know your thoughts on Bitcoin-friendly countries.

Cool news! We reached 100 Bitcoin ATMs worldwide.

Number of Bitcoin machines increases quite fast nowadays. We reached the first milestone of 100 ATMs installed (at least the ones which I found on internet). And this is all in less than 8 months, assuming the first one was installed in the end of October 2013 in Vancouver. Btw looks like Vancouver is the city with most Bitcoin ATM installations as of today. Hope other cities will take this as an example.
Bitcoin ATM locations could be checked on the map. Also there are nice charts about the growth rate of Bitcoin ATM installations per different vendors.
Hope the site would be useful for tracking the locations of Bitcoin ATMs. Any feedback and new locations messages would be really appreciated!

Bitcoin ATMS - Big Business?

So after learning a lot more about the Vancouver ATM... I figure it's big business for a lot of reasons. I've used the ATM a few times.
1) Everyone and their dog wants bitcoins, but they are too hard to buy on exchanges (You need verification of 2-10 days, and 5-10 days for most wire transfers). ATM's make it easy by being able to use cash with no delays. Basically, normal people who are non-technical can buy them.
2) Vancouver's ATM has been massively successful - it's first week did over 100K in transactions. At 7% per transaction, it's $7000 gross profit it's first week. (There are some transaction fees and other costs to the company... I estimate their margins to actually be around 5%)
This week I estimate that it has done over $500,000 in transactions based on anecdote. When I was at it yesterday, it said that there were 500 BTC available at $500 each, and today apparently it ran out... That's $250,000 or more in transactions in 24 Hours. That's anywhere from $10000-20000 profit in a day...
The cost of a machine is about 3-15K, and I figure within the first week of most cities, you would have the cost nearly paid for.
So I'm pointing out the obvious for a few reasons... I'm very interested in getting into this business and am experienced in running businesses, but am looking for some people who are also interested. Either financially, have strong technical backgrounds, or strong financial analysis backgrounds. I think it would make a great franchise model actually.
Thoughts or do you think it's more or less a pipe dream?
EDIT: There are blurred lines with money anti-laundering laws... Kind of gets complicated with this but this is the only barrier to entry so far?

What are the different cryptocurrency regulations in major countries? Find the answer after reading this article.
Cryptocurrency Regulations across Major Countries
Cryptocurrency and the blockchain industry may seem sufficiently exciting and attractive to you now. After all, you are taking the time and effort to study this course. You may be planning to work in cryptocurrency and the blockchain industry. Of course, we want to encourage you and help you proceed toward your goal. But it is also important you understand the regulations guiding the blockchain industry to help keep yourself out of trouble.
This year, in particular, seems to be the year in which a lot of countries are looking to finally coalesce the regulations relating to the blockchain industry into a workable legal framework. Some countries are more accommodating to cryptocurrency and blockchain technological innovations while others are still more cautious. We will examine how each major country is forming their own regulatory framework for the blockchain industry.
Canada
Cryptocurrencies are not considered legal tender in Canada. This was clearly expressed by the country’s Financial Consumer Agency (FCA). Canada, like the US, has yet to clearly define or legislate a framework surrounding cryptocurrencies. But Canada still appears to be among the most transparent of countries for the nation’s interpretation and enforcement of the law surrounding cryptocurrencies (aside from Switzerland). For the time being, Canada has clearly stated its reluctance to adopt cryptocurrency as a legal tender, due to its high volatility. “ “The United States of America (USA)
There are certain laws regarding transactions in virtual currency in the US today but there is still no comprehensive legal framework. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission currently regulates virtual currencies as commodities. The CFTC is the first US regulator to allow for public cryptocurrency trading. The Securities and Exchange Commission requires registration of any virtual currency traded in the US if it is classified as a security (e.g. by the Howey test).
The regulatory authorities have not yet formulated or offered a coherent framework for regulations regarding cryptocurrencies. Typical of most legislators and regulatory agencies in the US, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has intensified its focus on the pressing need for comprehensive regulation. And it seems everyone is waiting for the right catalyst to coalesce into a usable set of legal guidelines that can protect the investing public and also allow for blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation as well.
If cryptocurrency becomes a form of legal tender in the US, there will likely be stringent laws on its use. However, if cryptocurrency is treated like a security, cryptocurrencies would be regulated under securities law as interpreted by the SEC. Present securities laws place a large number of limitations on who is able to buy securities, how they are traded, and how to ensure transparency in the flow of information relevant to investors. Also note that non-US investors may experience their own difficulties getting a license to trade cryptocurrencies in the country. “ “Japan
Japan has always been one of the most positive and forward-thinking nations regarding cryptocurrencies and the blockchain. Of course, they were cautious at first, and they knew no more than anyone else in government, which means they literally knew nothing. But they took time to research, learn, and develop an approach to regulate the industry without killing it. The official policy is clear: Protect the public interest, but also encourage the growth of the industry with a legal framework that allows for innovation in blockchain and cryptocurrencies.
China
The situation in China is a sad one. The country has been taking increasingly strict actions to discourage and outlaw any activity related to the blockchain industry. China has banned ICOs, frozen all accounts associated with cryptocurrency, stopped bitcoin miners and even ordered a nationwide ban on all forms of cryptocurrency trading.
China has the strictest laws against cryptocurrency. Yet, despite that fact, as of 2017, 50% of the world’s mining population was from China! If you are involved with the cryptocurrency industry it is strongly advised to stay away from China, and avoid transactions with Chinese business because of the unpredictable and negative legal framework.
“ “The United Kingdom & European Union
Brexit is scheduled to take place in March 2019, yet the UK and the EU still remain united in their regulatory attitude toward cryptocurrencies. There are also reports that the UK and EU are planning to end anonymity for cryptocurrency traders.
The UK and EU are both trying to control all the scams and frauds. They are working with cryptocurrency platforms to stop or at least report all suspicious transactions. This adds a degree of regulatory burden on the exchanges as well as increasing the associated compliance costs. Cryptocurrencies are extremely volatile. They are a high-risk investment. Governments across Europe are greatly concerned about the possibility of both retail and sophisticated investors losing a lot of money.
This has led to a situation similar to that in the US. The regulatory authorities have not yet formulated or offered a coherent framework for regulations regarding cryptocurrencies. There is an intense focus on the pressing need for comprehensive regulation. And everyone is waiting for the right catalyst to coalesce into a usable set of legal guidelines that can protect the investing public and allow for blockchain and cryptocurrency innovation as well. We certainly hope for intelligent and effective legislation from all the major countries. “ “Accommodating & Unaccommodating Countries
Below is a list of countries we have not specifically covered, but they have each taken an active position on a regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies. The following countries are either supportive or at least neutral toward cryptocurrencies:
-Switzerland. -Australia. -Nigeria. -Ghana. -South Africa. -Singapore.
Countries with the most stringent and negative cryptocurrency regulation:
-Venezuela. -South Korea. -India. -Russia.
Did you know?
It is not uncommon to see Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency ATMs throughout Japan.
Exchange robberies and hacks like MtGox, and the recent loss of $530 million NEM coins have led to serious debate in the Japanese government. The industry needs to provide a secure and manageable solution to these problems. Voluntary self-regulation and close cooperation with regulatory authorities is the most favored solution. It seems the regulators are working hard behind the scenes right now leading the industry in the desired direction in typical Japanese fashion. “ “Blockchain Industry Regulations in the USA
Based on the information received from the Columbia Science and Technology Law Review, there was a variety of responses from different government bodies about blockchain regulations. The regulators responses ranged from indifference to suspicion, and to positive expectation and excitement.
The US government has tremendous constitutional power to regulate business and industry, including of course the blockchain industry if it so desires. But basically, the federal government has been relatively indifferent and has even refused to speak on blockchain regulations despite the interest of various federal agencies. As of 2017, eight states in the US were working on bills promoting the use of cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies. It is even reported that a few states have actually begun the final steps before voting and passing legislation into law.
On April 3, 2018 Arizona introduced a law allowing corporations to hold and share data on the blockchain. The governor, Doug Ducey, put forward the legislation after the state began accepting signatures and smart contracts recorded on the blockchain as legally valid documentation. In 2017, Delaware was the first state to pass legislation allowing for shares of stocks to be legally traded on the blockchain.
Other notable developments have occurred in the US at the state or local level. Vermont makes use of blockchain as evidence in trials. Chicago uses blockchain to maintain real estate records. New York is currently evaluating four bills for the application of data storage on the blockchain. “ ” Blockchain Regulations in Europe
The entire European Union has approached blockchain with a positive and welcoming attitude. The EU has taken the position that they want to actively encourage innovation. This philosophy could support the development of cryptocurrencies in two ways:
-Encouraging the exploration of uses testing the impact and effect of the laws in a way that allows for a more finely-tuned and sophisticated understanding for all parties involved.
-Giving entrepreneurs the confidence that their target markets will be more trusting of their solution since they are operating with the explicit legal support of the state.
This approach, along with the EU’s scope as the regulator of 28 different countries, will encourage growth across the entire crypto ecosystem, and may end up transforming Europe into one of the most desirable destinations for blockchain development. Entrepreneurs are likely to move to the EU bloc to access the rich vein of available talent, as well as the positive and supportive laws.
The EU has actually disclosed through its executive arm that it is working on the use of blockchain for distributed ledger based projects. EU officials have constantly stated they are looking for ways to support more innovation with distributed ledger technology. The European Commission said it was “”actively monitoring Blockchain and DLT developments”” and has work in progress to explore “”DLT benefits and challenges as well as fields for application in financial services””.
The official press release stated that the commission clearly wants to “”pilot projects to foster decentralized innovation ecosystems and help reshape interactions between consumers, producers, creators and among citizens, businesses and administrations to the end benefit of society””. “ “Blockchain Regulations in Europe §2
Switzerland has gradually become the favored hub for cryptocurrency and blockchain development in Europe. This position has been enhanced through a Swiss non-profit blockchain and cryptographic technology ecosystem known as the Crypto Valley Association.
The Crypto Valley Association has begun working on the development of an ICO Code of Conduct to take advantage of the ban imposed by China on token crowd sales. They are hoping to capture the Chinese and Asian entrepreneurs searching for a new home.
Other countries are not as accepting of this new DLT technology and have even gone as far as classifying it as illegal and immoral behavior. There have been hyperbolic concerns most notably from China that cryptocurrencies will destabilize world financial markets.
There are various pilot projects and efforts to prove the benefits of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain industry currently being tested all across Europe. Yet even now they are barely scratching the surface of the full potential of the blockchain.
Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Citizens of countries all over the world have varying attitudes about cryptocurrency. These attitudes and sentiments can be very significant to the future adoption of cryptocurrencies because politicians and regulators tend to act in consideration of the collective opinion of the public. Some countries were more accommodating at first but then became stricter, despite positive public interest, basically saying they are still not sure about the possible consequences and benefits of the technology. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Estonia
Surprisingly enough this small Baltic nation has gained a reputation for being quick to accept technological innovation. Estonia has a tech-friendly government eager to accommodate the innovative use of cryptocurrency in fields ranging from blockchain technology for healthcare and banking services; and even granting citizens the right to become what is known as “e-Residents”.
As e-Residents, Estonian citizens and businesses are provided with digital business authentication. It is also one of the first countries to employ the use of a blockchain-based e-voting service that enabled people to become shareholders of NASDAQ’s Tallinn Stock Exchange.
This fascinating and highly innovative country is now host to a number of Bitcoin ATMs and startups, like Paxful. They are cryptocurrency friendly, and cryptocurrency user friendly as well. Estonia also has highest internet penetration rates in the world.
Estonia may be a fine place to consider basing your ICO due to the friendly legal and regulatory environment.
This and a lot more you can learn on our website: www.ubai.co! “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
The United States of America
The USA is the world’s dominant superpower, and it should come as no surprise that it has the highest number of cryptocurrency users in the world. It also has the highest bitcoin trading volume and the highest number of bitcoin ATMs.
Powered by Silicon Valley, which is home to a lot of cryptocurrency and blockchain startups, the US stands at the forefront of all things relating to cryptocurrency worldwide. Many other nations are planning to follow the US lead concerning cryptocurrency regulations. This means the USA will serve as the testing ground for cryptocurrency and crypto-regulation in the years to come. This is likely where the future regulatory framework will take shape.
Bitcoin in particular has shown massive growth in the US. This can only be interpreted as a strong tailwind for a positive regulatory environment because the population at large supports blockchain technology.
For the moment, due to regulatory paralysis and the resultant legal vacuum, ICOs are strongly advised against raising funds or basing operations in the US. The SEC has been particularly strict in its enforcement of securities and investment law which require an ICO to do an oppressive amount of compliance work. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Denmark
When it comes to technological advancements and the standard of living of its citizens, Denmark is among the world leaders. It is considered one of the most developed countries in the world. It is also at the forefront of countries looking to reduce the use of cash money and advance to the use of 100% digital currency. As such, sentiment among the general public and political sphere actively supports the adoption of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. The only question left is which particular cryptocurrency system to adopt. It is still unclear whether bitcoin is the one, or BTC will mainly just be accepted as a means of exchange. There are also discussions in Denmark about when to redesign its national financial system; this would be a “world first”, and a radical leap forward for cryptocurrencies.
Another fascinating thing is that the Danish Central Bank has declared BTC as a non-currency; meaning its use is not subject to the country’s currency regulations. Some of the top bitcoin startups and exchanges such as CCDEK have their foundations in Denmark.
With its open market and encouraging regulatory framework, Denmark might very well rival Switzerland in Western Europe for the position of the continent’s preeminent ICO and blockchain industry hub. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Sweden
Sweden is quite similar to Denmark, for its social and demographic climate, and also for the government’s desire to eliminate cash. The Swedish Riksbank recently introduced negative interest rates. This can cause a spike in the demand for coins in the near future as citizens look for the best way to preserve their wealth. Negative interest rates like we have seen in Europe and Japan also, actively corrode savers’ wealth because people are actually paying a percentage of their savings to the central bank to hold their cash, in addition to losing out to inflation at the same time.
Sweden has taken the boldest step yet in all of continental Europe to legalize cryptocurrency. The country legalized the use of BTC and other cryptocurrencies as a means of payment by official public declaration. It is however expected that exchanges should file for a license in accordance with AML/CTF and KYC regulations.
Sweden is also home to a number of cryptocurrency startups such as the Safello Bitcoin exchange, and Stockholm-based KnCMiner. The gradually increasing trading volume of cryptocurrency has been a good indicator of the country’s appreciating demand for cryptocurrencies. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
The Netherlands
The Netherlands is quite fascinating in its own right. How can a country not be referred to as Bitcoin-friendly when it can boast about having its own “Bitcoin City”? There are over 100 merchants that sell goods that can be purchased with cryptocurrency in Bitcoin City.
There are no regulations restricting the use of BTC in the Netherlands under the Act on Financial Supervision of the Netherlands. This explains why a lot of startups, BTC ATMs, and even a Bitcoin Embassy can be found in the heart of Amsterdam (the capital of Netherlands).
The friendly climate for cryptocurrency has led to a lot of very active bitcoin communities across the nation hosting regular meetups and other events. The country’s banking sector has been looking to incorporate BTC and blockchain to reduce costs and improve banking technology. The Netherlands is also a popular location for many important bitcoin conferences and bitcoin companies such as BitPay.
The Netherlands is increasingly becoming a prominent place for ICOs and blockchain related businesses to base their operations. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Finland
Well-known as the home of Nokia, Finland has constantly been at the forefront of technological innovation, just like its other Scandinavian neighbors. The Finnish Central Board of Taxes (CBT) has even gone as far as classifying bitcoin as a financial service, exempting it and cryptocurrency purchases from the VAT. What more could be better for Bitcoin?
Finland also boasts a significant number of BTC ATMs despite its small population. The capital of Helsinki alone is reported to have 10 ATMs for BTC. The country is also home to top exchanges such as FinCCX and Bittiraha.fi. As of January 2016, the most expensive bitcoin sale took place in Finland. It involved the sale of a Tesla Model S worth over €140,000 at Auto-Outlet Helsinki Oy.
Canada
Canada is home to a variety of bitcoin startups and ATMs. It is considered to be more favorable toward cryptocurrencies than the USA. The country has two cities on its eastern and western coasts, Toronto and Vancouver, that are recognized as “Bitcoin hubs”.
Canada has a vibrant cryptocurrency community and is home to startups such as Decentral, the Vanbex Group and a large number of merchants who accept cryptocurrencies as payment. Vancouver is known to have over 20 ATMs while Toronto is well-known for holding large cryptocurrency conferences.
There has been constant growth in cryptocurrency trading volume in the country. Canada might be the best location in North America to base an ICO or operate a blockchain business due to its supportive regulatory environment and a rich ecosystem for cryptocurrency, with human talent, ATMs and other tools, etc. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
United Kingdom
The UK is one of the absolute top financial hubs in the world. It is also a center of innovation. There are a large number of bitcoin and blockchain related startups, BTMs and active communities. All of the previously listed crypto-friendly features make the UK a very desirable environment for bitcoin. The UK has identified the inevitable need for a new payment solution and is gradually bracing itself for a widespread adoption of cryptocurrency in the future. There are even a few local pubs that accept BTC as a means of payment.
It is also interesting to note that the Bank of England has been closely monitoring bitcoin technology and has requested ideas from citizens on the improvement of its monetary system. Bitcoin is presently seen as “private money” where VAT is imposed from suppliers of goods and services that accept cryptocurrency as payment. Profits and losses incurred from cryptocurrency trading are also subject to capital gains tax, just as in the US.
In the UK, it has become increasingly clear that BTC can be part of a bigger story, and the trading volume indicates steady growth. There are not clear laws against cryptocurrencies at the present time. But the lack of regulatory momentum suggests we may see more positive developments soon. One thing to keep in mind, while the Brexit is still in progress, the British government may be more likely to legislate on non-core issues. “ “Country-by-Country Cryptocurrency Adoption
Australia
The major banks in Australia have been quite hostile toward bitcoin, but at least the country has removed the burden of “double taxation” on cryptocurrency. This was good news to the local business community because blockchain startups had begun to leave the country as a direct result of unfavorable taxation and closure of bank accounts.
The use of BTC still remains unregulated, there is no law or regulation restricting the use of cryptocurrencies by Australian citizens. Cryptocurrencies are regarded as a form of property in Australia, and purchases with BTC, for example, are referred to as “barter”.
The Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), you will remember, is transitioning its CHESS verification system to a blockchain solution that should go live at the beginning of 2019. Cryptocurrencies in Australia are seen a lot like they are in the US. Topics like the imposition of capital gains tax, concern about securities law, the legal debate about using cryptocurrency as payment for goods and services, etc., are all problematic for regulators. While the general population is quite comfortable and supportive of cryptocurrencies and blockchain solutions, at the present it is not a high priority for the government to legislate or regulate. “ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Tax is of course one of the most important factors in financial matters on both a personal and corporate level. Taxes greatly influence investment decisions and returns, regardless of industry or size. It is one of the first things every individual or group considers before investing. Notably, in Australia and the USA, cryptocurrency gains are treated as capital gains and taxed at up to 50% of the return.
Some countries have low cryptocurrency taxes specifically to encourage the blockchain industry. By offering a more competitive tax rate, countries are implicitly supporting cryptocurrency and actively trying to offer a better return profile than other countries. We will discuss the different taxation regimes in a wide range of countries so you can ascertain the financial advantages and disadvantages of a variety of locations.
Belarus
Belarus charges 0% in taxation until 2023. That exemption is specifically for cryptocurrency exchanges and transactions. This has been done to help Belarus build a special economic zone, referred to as ‘HTP Belarus’. Their goal is to have an economic zone strong enough to compete with the likes of Silicon Valley.
The government of Belarus has also declared smart contracts as legal documents. Anyone looking to set up a blockchain company or a cryptocurrency startup should seriously consider Belarus. It has a supportive regulatory and legal environment which actively encourages the blockchain industry and does not impose punitive taxes upon those inside the industry.
“ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Portugal
Any and all personal income received from cryptocurrency transactions is tax-free in Portugal at the present moment. Income from cryptocurrency trading is categorized as something legally different from traditional income or capital gains.
The Portuguese government stated clearly that any kind of sale of cryptocurrency does not fall under capital income or capital gain. If an individual is however found to be carrying out professional activity, or any business activity related to cryptocurrencies, that is a different matter and such income will be subject to taxation.
From a personal perspective, Portugal is one of the leading countries where an individual can carry out their cryptocurrency transactions and enjoy a decent standard of living in the same country too. However, for ICO and Blockchain businesses it is not recommended to base your operations in Portugal.
China
China is famous the world over for being home to some of the largest cryptocurrency mines and many active cryptocurrency investors; yet at the same time China makes it illegal to conduct any cryptocurrency related business or investment.
But China still has an especially attractive environment for investors. Hong Kong runs on a policy of zero VAT or capital gains tax so it is easy to recommend you base your business there. Hong Kong also stands out as a major financial hub in the heart of Asia. “ “Taxation and Cryptocurrency
Netherlands
Actually, Netherlands was the first country to make use of a non-zero tax rate policy for cryptocurrencies. So, it may seem reasonable to expect a discouraging tax situation. But the fact is, Netherland’s tax policy is rather advantageous for cryptocurrency. They have a very simple, low-tax regime.
Cryptocurrency assets need to be declared with the total assets owned by an individual at the beginning of the year to assess their value. Cryptocurrency gains will be taxed at the highest tax bracket for capital income of just around 5%. The Netherlands is strongly recommended as a good country to work and live in, from both a personal and corporate perspective.
Germany
Germany is the economic center of the EU. This makes it a great place to start a cryptocurrency or blockchain company. Financial technology has been thriving there for more than ten years, and Germany has favorable cryptocurrency laws too.
Bitcoin and cryptocurrency assets have a 0% tax when used in making payments due to no VAT levied for making payments with BTC, because there is no “value added” through cryptocurrency as a fiscal product.
Germany offers a moderately compelling case for both blockchain business and individuals. While the tax rate on income at the company level is not competitive, the ability to pay for services in crypto as well as hold cryptocurrency assets and sell them at zero percent taxation rate is compelling. “ “Where to Base Your ICO
Let’s talk about the countries that are most accommodating with regard ICOs. Start-up ICO companies, like any company, essentially require three key principles for operation. The first is a sound legal and regulatory framework wherein the rule of law is preserved and business encouraged. The second is the ability to hire or acquire talented individuals to work at the firm. The third and final is the tax system and access to associated financial systems in order to allow the enterprise to succeed.
Estonia
This country is, perhaps surprisingly, widely referred to as the most digital society in the world. Estonians are known to be pathfinders deeply involved in setting up an efficient, secure, and transparent internet ecosystem.
The country ranks first when it comes to the number of ICOs per inhabitant. It has an incredibly supportive tax regime, actually among the most competitive in the world, as well as a deep pool of talent across all areas of the digital spectrum. Estonia offers possibly the most supportive and friendly regulatory and legal framework in the world for an ICO. This, in combination with a zero percent tax rate at both a personal and corporate level, combine to make Estonia one of the single most appealing locations from which you can launch and operate your ICO. “ “Where to Base Your ICO
Singapore
Singapore is another important regional hub in Asia for its strong rule of law as well as low taxation. The country offers one of the highest standards of living in the world. It is centrally located in the heart of Asia, so it easy to travel and recruit talent from surrounding countries. At the present there are not any specific regulations targeting the blockchain industry, but it is one of the world’s largest countries by funds raised for ICOs. It has a competitive tax regime in combination with strict AML and KYC. All of these factors make Singapore Asia’s leading location to launch and base an ICO.
The regulatory situation around the world may seem rather complicated. That is because it is. Laws and regulations are changing rapidly all over the world. And the regulatory framework is the most significant point of concern for a startup ICO. You should carefully study not only the current regulations surrounding your particular venture and how its tokenomics affects its classification, but you also need a reasonable sense of where the country is likely to be six months or a year later. Ideally you would base your ICO in a country that is supportive now, and all timeframes into the future with a competitive and legally sound tax system.
Where to Base Your ICO
Slovenia
Slovenia has recently transformed itself into the leading destination for blockchain technology in Europe. The government of Slovenia has placed a strong emphasis on the study of blockchain technology in public administration, and there has been an amazing success rate for ICOs in Slovenia. While the Slovenian government is a leader in terms of adopting cryptocurrencies, its rate of taxation is still considered quite high at 19%, even though that is still lower than other European countries. ICOs are considered to be normal business activities where you are taxed based on the funds received from an ICO less the expenses of doing business.
Switzerland
Switzerland is trying to remain relevant for the blockchain industry and for ICOs. The Swiss finance ministry is actively trying to attract investors to the country. Switzerland is considered a very important crypto location due to fact it was home to four of the largest ICOs in the world. The country is also very attractive to investors because of its friendly regulations and digital expertise. The taxation and regulatory environment is extremely secure and positive towards the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry in general.

Top Ten Cities for Bitcoin Owners

https://preview.redd.it/mhe8tbtmypp21.jpg?width=1080&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8e8600f416ae5c41f6bd7721bd315fda6086bdd4
Many residents of different countries own Bitcoins, but not everyone can use them for their intended purpose. However, there are cities where those who own them can fully enjoy their advantages over other currencies. Analysts ranked such cities.
San Francisco is in the first place. In this city, there are more than thirty ATMs working with Bitcoin and hundreds of stores where they can pay for goods and services. It is here the largest crypto-exchange Coinbase located. In addition, there are many programmers working with cryptocurrencies.
Vancouver is in the second place. The city has more than a hundred stores that accept coins as well as about fifty cryptoATMs. Anyone who owns Bitcoin can easily pay them off and not feel deprived of their rights.
The third place went to Amsterdam. This city is considered one of the most loyal to cryptocurrency. There are dozens of outlets and shops where you can pay, there is also an ATM that works with Bitcoin.
Fourth place - Ljubljana. Despite the fact that the city has just over 250,000 inhabitants, it has 5 cryptoATMs and dozens of small shops that accept Bitcoin as a means of payment. In addition, they can pay in some hotels.
Tel-Aviv is in the fifth place. It has several Bitcoin ATMs, more than sixty stores which accept a leading coin.
Zurich is in the sixth place. Since a large number of banks work here, they decided to install 8 ATMs operating with Bitcoin in the city and residents can pay them in several dozen outlets.
Seventh place was taken by the city of Tampa. Despite the fact that it is very small, there are 13 Bitcoin ATMs and almost a hundred stores where everyone can pay Bitcoin for the goods.
Buenos Aires is on the eighth line. This city has more than a hundred stores where tourists and residents can pay with Bitcoin. There are a few cryptoATMs.
New York is in ninth place. Bitcoin takes several hundred stores and more than a hundred cryptoATMs work here.
London is in the last place. Here you can find more than eighty stores and several dozen ATMs working with bitcoin.
Perhaps in a few years there will be even more cities where residents and tourists can use Bitcoin for their own purposes.

10 Surprising Bitcoin Facts You Need To Know

10 Surprising Bitcoin Facts You Need To Know
In this article, we’re going to dig into some surprising Bitcoin facts you need to know. The world’s most popular digital currency (for now) is Bitcoin. It still holds a roughly 35% dominance over all other cryptocurrencies according to coinmarketcap.com. Though its dominance is decreasing as time moves on and newer better cryptocurrencies start gaining traction, for now it’s still the most valuable and the most widely used.
For the majority of the general public and even many Bitcoin investors, explaining what it is and how it works still proves to be a challenge. Though the name was brought into the public eye recently after the late 2017 price rally, most people still have no idea what Bitcoin actually is, let alone how it works.
If they were to try, they’d probably throw around some buzz words like digital currency, mining and stock market, with no real understanding of what they’re actually talking about. 10 Surprising Bitcoin Facts You Need To Know
After analysing the Bitcoin price every day since it’s invention, the day with the highest Bitcoin price and arguably the best day to own Bitcoin is 13th December! Just like the Bitcoin Cash fork in 2017, Litecoin was actually forked from the Bitcoin core client in 2011. The world’s first ever Bitcoin ATM was located in Vancouver, Canada! Black market trading on the deep web was one of the first widely adopted use cases for Bitcoin. The first of which was the infamous and now closed down, Silk Road! Silk Road alone is estimated to have accounted for around 10% of the Bitcoin economy at the time. Lamborghini was the first car company to accept Bitcoin! There are now 17 Million Bitcoins in circulation. That means just 0.24% of the worlds population can own a full Bitcoin. 90% of all Bitcoin wallets hold less than 0.1 BTC Chinese mining pools control around 70% of the Bitcoin network’s collective hashrate. Satoshi Nakamoto‘s inactive Bitcoin wallet still holds around 1 Million BTC! The Bitcoin price is strongly correlated with Google search volumes! When search volumes increase, so does the price and vice versa. 
We hope these 10 Bitcoin facts surprised you and you enjoyed reading them.

A master mask maker I met last night using BTC to bypass Western Union & send money to his family of 35 in the Philippines.

I live just up the street from the Waves coffee in Vancouver, yes, the one with the first Robocoin in the world (allegedly).
I am around town quite a bit, so I stop in irregularly to see who is there. One thing I love about Bitcoin and especially having a physical location for it - is the people I meet that have been brought together by it. There is many unique, colourful individuals I otherwise likely would not have met.
Anyways, I am there last night and there is this dude, this guy.. this older dude guy in a big trench coat. He came in to use the ATM, and I am there talking with two young Bit-thusiasts. He overhears me talking and begins talking to us..
This dude guy, is a master mask creator. Telling me he has sold some of his masks for $10,000 - and now plans to accept Bitcoin for his masks and actually KEEP IT IN BITCOIN.
He goes on to tell me that he has FOURTEEN KIDS. They are all overseas, most of them in a big ass house he sends them Bitcoin to pay the rent for in the Phillipines. He says from his 14 kids, many of them have kids/families of their own, so his actual family size is 35.
He goes on to show me pictures, one of the bathroom with two big cups literally overflowing with toothbrushes. The next part of his story, warms my heart -
He goes on to tell me, that over the years he has sent some $1.5 MILLION to his family through Western union. The fees, the wait times, the hardship.. but he had no other choice. Western Union has a near monopoly on this kind of stuff - and they know it - and charge accordingly.
He says now thanks to Bitcoin, he is able to do it directly and bypass them. Now the NEXT PART OF THE STORY - really warms my grassfed heart - big time!
He goes on to tell me, that he is going to open a wallet for each of his kids and grandkids, all of them. He is going to put 2-3 BTC in EACH WALLET, and then just tuck them away... for "20 years from now" he says.
Man, I lost it! One of the BEST Bitcoin stories I've ever heard. I said $%#* stocks & bonds and go on to tell him how my grandmother, bless her non-grassfed heart, left me and my brother $2000 bonds before she left this world.. and on those bonds they would give back a staggering 1% a year, maturing in 20 years time with incremental .25% interest increases each year. $20 a year... $25 the second year.. etc...
In 20 years, I'd have enough for a sandwich cart. Not my idea of a light at the end of the tunnel now is it.
Now this dude guy, his kids, 2-3 BTC each, a couple thousand now, might potentially be millions for them later in life.
Held in their own hands, for their own futures.
Friggin' amazing. I love Bitcoin.

Another Robocoin ATM in Vancouver!

I know this may not be as exciting as the Dish Network acceptance or possibly the acceptance from Ebay and PayPal, but here is one more 2-way Bitcoin ATM for the Vancouver area!
This is the 2nd Robocoin ATM in Vancouver and we plan to provide more locations to help expand the user base. Also, the ATMs in Canada are a lot less strict then they are in the US or in other parts of the world for all of the new users. You don't need to provide your DNA, first born, or hair sample. Just walk up, choose to buy or sell and that's it!
This Bitcoin ATM is located in the Thai Vietnamese Cuisine restaurant on 986 West Broadway and Oak (It is 24/7). Hope to get some love and support from the fellow Bitcoin community!
To the moon!!! or is it to Mars now... Whatever it is, the future looks bright!

Probing for interest - Bitcoin ATM.

Dear Ottawa...ians,
Hi, I'm a local....from Merrickville Ontario. I am currently into the bitcoin fad, phase or revolution take your pick. I have just converted my moms store into the first shop in Merrickville and in fact the whole area You can check her store online! (although payment isn't set up yet) at www.inchofgold.ca) or visit her in downtown merrickville at the Inch of Gold store :).
I have also been reading about the new bitcoin ATM located in Vancouver. Roughly I think this could be a good time and idea to invest in. I don't believe there is one in Ottawa yet...although I have heard talk about it. I personally feel excited enough to fund and operate the first Ottawa based bit atm (hopefully) but I am not sure how well it would take off.
I know Ottawa is hip hop and happening especially in the downtown sector, not so much in relation to bitcoins as vancouver would be but I'm sure there is great enough interest and possibility.
Currently I am trying to figure out where to place it and how to get the rest of the funding to purchase it. I can buy the lesser 5k machine right now... or the well off $15,000. So basically with this post I am wondering... Would you like to be a shop/store front which hosts the first bitcoin machine in Ottawa? would you like to become a partneinvestor with me?
Also what you all think of this idea. Please feel free to comment..Anything is helpful :)

Robocoin to Install World’s Second Bitcoin ATM in Hong Kong

The first Bitcoin ATM was installed in Vancouver, Canada on 29th October 2013. Robocoin first unveiled the ATM at a conference in San Jose, California during last year’s springtime. At the time Robocoin had said that four other ATM’s would be launched in December at Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Ottawa. Today (7th January 2014) however, Robocoin announced that they would be deploying the world’s second Bitcoin ATM in Hong Kong.
According to Robocoin, they have sold nearly 50 ATM machines to operators worldwide but they are not yet in operation. Hong Kong was chosen because due to its positive response towards technological innovation. “I think Hong Kong is a very progressive environment,” said CEO Jordan Kelley. “The government takes a progressive approach to emerging technologies, and it is important to get something going in the Asian economies,” he added.
This video gives you an overview of the machine:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uoiAewo5K7s&src_vid=0SidcjCLrQM&feature=iv&annotation_id=annotation_1219530905
About the Robocoin ATM:
It enables users to buy and sell Bitcoins. The ATM machine from Robocoin is equipped with biometric time locks and privacy-shielded touchscreen and has features like Wi-Fi and 3G enabled. robocoin1 The machine also accepts and dispenses cash and is international denomination ready. To avoid cases like money laundering and making multiple deposits, the ATM machine allows operation only after scanning a user’s palm. A user has a limit for depositing. “The ATM will work a bit like a vending machine for buying and selling virtual goods (Bitcoin) instead of physical goods like a can of soda,” said Hong Kong Bitcoin Enthusiast, Casper Cheng Tsz Chun. The location of the ATM has not been disclosed however.
Hong Kong’s adoption of the Bitcoin ATM gives Robocoin some breathing space. Recently the Taiwanese Central Bank & Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) had jointly declared that Bitcoin cannot be recognized as a valid form of currency. FSC Chairman Tseng Ming Chung said that Robocoin ATM’s would be prohibited.
Whatever said and done, Bitcoin has definitely created some waves last year. It will be interesting to see what is in store in 2014 for companies of all types trying to monopolize the virtual currency. If Bitcoin ATM’s end up gaining mainstream adoption (which I believe is a high possibility), Robocoin would benefit tremendously with its advantage as the first player in the arena.

First Bitcoin Capital Corp. subsidiary (OTC: BITCF) Enters into MOU with Top Bitcoin ATM Manufacturer InterWallet, LLC

VANCOUVER, B.C. / ACCESSWIRE / March 17, 2014 / BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation (“Company”) a wholly-owned subsidiary of First Bitcoin Capital Corp., is pleased to announce that it has entered into a memorandum of understanding with leading Bitcoin ATM manufacturer InterWallet, LLC.
The Company has secured rights with InterWallet to exclusively purchase, place and service Bitcoin ATMs, manufactured by InterWallet, in medical marijuana dispensaries, including other high traffic retail locations at Company’s discretion.
Extensive demographic research conducted by BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation showed that a strategically placed Bitcoin ATM in medical marijuana locations can prove to be extremely profitable.
As a result of its analysis, the company believes these high-traffic locations are beneficial because they attract a wide range of demographic groups, including a generation that is tech savvy, understands crypto-currency, embraces new and emerging technologies and also conducts a lot of its business online or through their smartphones.
The company sees this move as an entrance into the medical marijuana retailing sector. Research shows that medical marijuana has various beneficial clinical applications and is a valuable aid in helping patients control pain.
With nearly 20 U.S. states and the District of Columbia approving and regulating the use of medical marijuana, BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation says its InterWallet-manufactured Bitcoin ATMs will support the medical marijuana industry by helping patients connect with an array of resources allowing them to make Internet payments using cash or Bitcoin to pay their bills and purchase advanced products or services in the most convenient way possible.
Since the world’s first Bitcoin ATM debuted in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2013, the industry has flourished with Bitcoin ATMs now being installed in many other locations including Austin, Texas; Seattle, Washington; Hong Kong, Ireland and Singapore.
BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation is the first Bitcoin Company in the world to offer a unique turn-key franchise investment opportunity, offering all legal, regulatory and location services for business owners to earn additional income by getting involved in the lucrative Bitcoin industry with minimal effort.
“We believe Bitcoin ATMs that are located in areas with high foot traffic, such as medical marijuana dispensaries, will only benefit the company’s bottom line and help secure the company’s plans for future growth and expansion,” the company said.
About BITCoin ATM Franchise Corporation:
BITCoin ATM Franchise Corp. is the first Bitcoin Company in the world to offer a unique franchise opportunity for business owners to earn additional income by getting involved in the lucrative Bitcoin industry. The company intends to build a network of Bitcoin ATMs that will be similar to any other ATM franchise company. Investing in a Bitcoin ATM franchise will allow business owners to earn good residual income without spending too much time and effort. A Bitcoin ATM franchise is ideal for those who want to start a small business but don’t have the required capital to do so. As the Bitcoin industry grows, more and more people will begin using the crypto-currency and the ATM, especially if it’s located in an area that has high foot traffic, will be the go-to choice for anyone looking to exchange, buy, or sell Bitcoins easily and quickly in one convenient location.
First Bitcoin Capital Corp. is a developing Canadian-based mining company currently holding concessions of Gold in Venezuela and is preparing to enter the crypto-currency industry. It is the first vertically-integrated consolidation company of the Bitcoin and crypto-currency marketplace.

Free and public Bitcoin events taking place in Montreal and Vancouver this weekend

Vancouver: Crypto Block Party @ Car Free Day
Details: http://www.meetup.com/BitcoinCoop/events/186252112/
Haven't heard of Car Free Day? It's one of Vancouver's largest festivals, with around 250,000 people expected to attend this year. It's a volunteer-driven, community-focused celebration of car-free culture, and includes several routes set up for pedestrian traffic past booths, vendors, and activities of all kinds. See their website (http://www.carfreevancouver.org/) for more information.
Main Street is the most trafficked route, with around 100,000 passersby expected. It also holds the Vera's Burger Shack that accepts Bitcoin. Here we will hold Vancouver's first Crypto Block Party, raising the Bitcoin flag over Vera's for all to see. We're bringing several different types of cryptocurrency ATMs and miners, and shall spare no expense to make this both fun and educational. Maybe more businesses will join us!
By promising to conduct the block in a non-profit fashion (and thanks to my friend Ed Yuen), I was able to rent the area between 13th and 14th avenues for only $2,500 in bitcoins, which they now accept. We intend to divide the cost evenly, charging $250 to cryptocurrency businesses, with discounts given to artists and select non-profit organizations. In the event of excess funding, participants may either be partially reimbursed, or have their funds used for decorations and other attractions.
We've already been interviewed by the Straight and Bitcoin Magazine, and plenty more publicity will follow. Confirmed participants so far include QuadrigaCX, the Bitcoin Cooperative, Newnote Financial Decentral.Bangtown, and more! If you would like to participate, please email Andrew at [masked], or call at 778.918.8.7156. We can help with transportation and set-up on the day of, and an invoice will be provided to you for your record. It's time to hit the streets!
Montreal: Bitcoin Embassy to host Bitcoin education booth during Mural Public Art Festival
Details: http://www.meetup.com/Bitcoin-Embassy/events/188494072/
At the Bitcoin Embassy, we never miss an occasion to promote and facilitate the adoption of Bitcoin. Last week-end, we hosted a three-day “Bitcoin Break” during the Canadian Grand Prix festivities, where tourists and locals learned about Bitcoin. The event was a great success!
This coming weekend, from June 13th to June 15th, the Bitcoin Embassy will once again be hosting an educational booth in front of its headquarters, located on Montreal’s famous Saint-Laurent Boulevard, which locals refer to simply as “The Main”. We will be opened exceptionally until 11 pm.
This event will take place in the context of the Mural Public Art Festival. Last year, over 800 000 visitors attended this free outdoor festival. The Bitcoin Embassy is located right next to the Mural Festival office headquarters, where block parties will be held all week-end.
We will be selling Bitcoin starter kits, which will include a paper wallet pre-loaded with 10 mBTC (0.01 BTC) as well as detailed instructions on how to create a wallet and import funds. If you are not a beginner, buy one and offer it as a gift to a friend or family member.
We will also be distributing informational flyers, answering questions about Bitcoin and selling Bitcoin accessories.

Questions Answers
How does your company plan on staying competitive with other local exchanges coming out? Any plans on making an app? The company was started by Mike and Ryan, crypto-enthusiasts who saw problems in the marketplace when dealing in cryptos. They wanted an exchange that had a strong support team, legal visibility, operated somewhere where you could trust your money and had strong security - so in short they built it! We expect really big things for VoS and do indeed intend to be competitive with other exchanges, and yes, that does include building an app - we're currently exploring options in that field but we feel it crucial to take our time in doing that and put security first.
Why is it important for bitcoin companies to donate to charities? Or people to donate with cryptocurrency? Just wanna say thanks for being in the btc community and helping it grow and spread it around. Is there a lot of pressure on you now that you got your MSB? Any pressure from banks or government on how to behave? As for Charity we just feel its the right thing to do, I've always been a strong supporter of charities in my daily life and I brought that forward to VoS and the team agreed it made sense to gather up some funds for the Canadian Cancer Society given that April is their big fundraising month. On a grander scale I think it's important for cryptocurrencies to play a positive role in the world, let people know what we are all about, there is a lot of negative stigma about cryptos, some people say it's just kids "printing money", but it's a lot harder to say that when you're positively changing the world!
There's not any more pressure on us now than there was before - in fact I would say the MSB has taken some of the pressure off. We instead hold ourselves to the same laws and scrutiny as any financial institution would have to, and we feel this is best for our users and this sector as a whole. Getting the MSB let us know we had done everything right so far, and being in a new and evolving industry it's not always too clear if you're taking the right steps. The MSB is a checkmark that says "Hey you guys are as legitimate as you say you are" and we'll continue to hold ourselves to what ever rigorous standards we can (even when we don't need too). As far as external entities like Banks and Government - I think they are happy to see we have our MSB, I think it makes them more comfortable with the field in general and more willing to work with us. We recently met with our Member of Provincial Parliament and are setting up meetings with our Member of Parliament, and our Minister of Finance so they can see our operation here! The MPP certainly loved what we've got going!
That was a fast reply. Thanks for the response, you guys always been good with customer service :p . And thats great Mike and Ryan stepped up to be the ones to do it, it's a really much needed addition to the Toronto bitcoin scene. Oh man if Timmies was a payment I don't think Canada would need cryptocurrencies at all! Timbits everywhere! We love Tim Hortons - we usually start our Monday's with group coffee and donuts! So we are never opposed Timmies if you are dropping by for a visit :P (Compliance disclaimer: Timmies is not a valid payment method, just a staple at all Canadian meetings)
We also feel the importance of charities, especially with the nature of the bitcoin community always being a giving one. I hope you guys see good results n help the bitcoin image. We want to come visit you guys sometime, do you accept Tim Hortons as payment? :p.
The charity that you are donating to, do they accept btc or will you be converting it to fiat? We'll be convert it to Fiat.
Any plans on an Android app? We are looking into this, no formal timeline, but we're certainly exploring it!
It would be great if the volume would increase, can you comment on what is the strategy for getting more costumers? We are actually making a big push this spring in regards to our volume, including launching a highly competitive affiliates program that expect will grow our volume a great deal.
Any chance on improving the charts? (Or being included in bitcoinwisdom) We're always happy to take feedback on our charts, let us know what you want to see! As for Bitcoinwisdom, we've reached out to them multiple times, and added all the API support they need - just waiting on them to hopefully add us!
It currently takes ~3 days to get funds added to the balance, I presume that is mostly for security and because banks suck, are there plans to reduce this waiting time? We're looking at adding instant online debit transactions, no formal timeline on that yet but we are sure it will be great for our customers!
Glad SonOfAragon asked those questions so I don't end up repeating them and thanks for your reply Adam. However can you give us an idea of when you plan to launch the affiliates program/make the big push? If I sign up for an account, I'd probably want to beat the rush. We're actively working towards our affiliate program and our intention is to have it sometime this spring!
As someone who is completely ignorant of all things internet currency. can you please tell me how a beginner would go about getting into investing? (Lets say I have $10k of disposable income currently, would you suggest investing it all in bitcoin?) Hey Buildingdreams4,
That's a pretty hard question to answer, and so I can't give you an official Vault of Satoshi answer but I can give you a personal opinion. So please note this is my two cents and nothing VoS official.
Personally I have some experience in day trading and that's the best way to make money in such markets - however that's the kind of situation where you have to take risks, actively watch the market and only ever trade with what you have to lose (not only to avoid loss but also to make sure you are willing to take the level of risk needed to make strong returns.) I'd highly recommend learning about Forex trading before you dive into this.
That being said the Bitcoin community still feels strongly that their currency value will rise, subject to merchant adoption, legal/political landscapes and a number of other factors but I can't really comment on that as it is a real challenge to predict; there is also a great deal of merit to a number of altcoins with unique value - but just make sure you research and make informed decisions. Don't take anyone's advice at face value (mine included) research and invest where you feel comfortable.
What does vault think about VOS bitcoin atms? What can we do as customers to help you guys make this site better? As far as what customers can do - simply share the love! Tell your friends about VoS and always feel free to reach out to is with what you want to see on our site.
What about a physical location for vault deposits and verifications? We are currently examining new infrastructure opportunities that would allow us to accept physical deposits in more locations and we hope to have more information about that soon!
How does your reporting with with CRA? As for the CRA reporting I'm not sure what your exact question is, but as a registered business we report to the CRA in a typical fashion.
Is there any way to shorten deposit times? I'm super impressed that I can pay you like a bill directly from my bank account, but I'm bummed about how long it takes. If I send money to my vos account on a Thursday, I may not see those funds until Monday or Tuesday. If the exchange is open for trading on weekends, how about processing deposits as well? Hey Jay.
Also, what is done with the confidential info people upload to become verified? is it deleted? if it's kept on file, is access to it restricted to certain employees? We're currently working on a system that will allow immediate deposits via online debit! No formal time line yet but that will indeed make things much quicker!
Keep up the good work! Thank you. As for confidential information, if you have ever made a financial transaction on our website then we are required by law to keep a copy of that information. We take this responsibility very seriously, this information is encrypted and stored securely and is most certainly restricted access!
That's cool! Awesomesauce! I'm looking forward to it! Do you know if it will be limited like QuickBT (.2 BTC) or if there is some kind of daily limit? Also: when trading doge to btc I swear it took me half an hour to figure exactly how many doge I could buy with my btc including the fee. And I did it all wrong. I still have like .00066 btc left in my account which I guess is forfeit to the ether... Is there any way to put a helpful calculator on that page that figures it out for you??? As for your other question, as Xangelo said, we are working on improving the layout of our coin to coin system to make it less complicated. Being one of the first major exchanges to offer any coin to any coin means there is going to have to be some tweaking while we find out what the marketplace likes! But we're always open to feedback!
Would you rather fight a horse-sized duck or a hundred duck sized horses? Please elaborate. Feel free to answer individually. If there is anything that years of video game playing has taught me it's always pick the bigger monster over a ton of little ones! A hundred duck sized horses could quite quickly surround and nip and kick from all angles. Where as I feel that whilst a horse-sized duck would be absolutely terrifying my odds are better as I can always keep it in front of me (and perhaps distract it with breadcrumbs)
Also do you guys have any plans to change the buy/sell mechanic? I find its way too easy to accidentally make a buy order when you meant to make a sell order. As for the buy/sell mechanic it is something we are actively implementing and expect to launch in a couple weeks! Will make it easier to keep that straight!
My question: To be honest I've been using CaVirtex.How* would you say yours is better? We stand by our service as we are sure they do theirs, but at the end of the day it's about what better suits your needs. At the end of the day competition makes the market better for everybody!
Specifically, I would like to know what the nature of their cooperation and level of engagement is. Do they provide VoS with the absolute minimum of services as they would with any other business? Are they accommodative to specific VoS needs and requests related to crypto-currency specific challenges? Are they mutually active in developing services and infrastructure to support VoS/crypto-currencies? Are they taking a leading role in facilitating the necessary changes to support this new industry and growing public demand? Are you provided with a liaison to facilitate a closer working relationship? That being said when we did work with them they were fantastic, very supportive, and loved our business; the local branch went to some great lengths to help with our unique challenges and we certainly hope we can work with them again in the future.
Thanks for the reply! I feared as much having read about Cointrader in Vancouver being cut off by BMO in February. If I can follow up, how are your banking needs currently being met? We're currently actually streamlining our financials and will have more announcements on this soon. New partnerships are opening up doors to new payment methods and currencies and we're excited about that.
Are you planning to offer other services with altcoins? or you want to keep it solely as an exchange? We are exploring services beyond just exchange services - but we have no formal timelines on them yet! We'll be sure to let folks know!
Are you operating a full or fractional reserve and how much liquidity do you have available if tomorrow all clients wanted to withdraw all their funds? We are a full reserve exchange. We do have our holdings divided between our hot and cold wallets and top our hot wallet as it gets low. But we do have all the BTC we claim to and are actively working on a Proof of Solvency tool to verify this to users.
Which altcoins do you see as strongest going forward? Anything that has a unique value proposition and a strong community has the ability to go places but it's pretty hard to gauge these in advanced. We expect great things from the coins we've added/intend to add over the next month, which have all been announced.
Good to know Yubikey's available, thanks xangelo. Maybe one of your execs can chime in on the qualifications needed to join your verification team but that has me wondering...if a customer opens an account with VoS, can they still be hired, then close their account of course, or is that an automatic disqualification? By the way I didn't see a careers section on your site, are there plans for that once volume and I guess revenue increase? Just because you have an account with us, does not mean that you would be barred from applying for a job.
Currently we don't have any openings but when we do we'll be posting them to our website and all current positions would be located at our Brantford office.
Our verification system was designed by our exec team and our compliance officer and aided by our legal team; and our support staff handle the verifications. (Wasn't sure what you meant by "verification team") as for requirements for any opening, we'll be sure to post them with up coming jobs! Thanks for your inquiry though!
Thanks for clearing that up, I appreciate your thoroughness. Yes sorry, I was just speaking about FinCen to someone else before replying to this. I did mean Fintrac and I've edited the post!
I don't want to draw this exchange out too much but what puzzles me is your statement about FinCen compliance. If you're currently not accepting US customers, why would FinCEN compliance even be relevant? Let's say a customer lives in Canada. Wouldn't you simply have to comply with FINTRAC regulations, seeing as that's an a Canadian agency? And one other thing. Does Vos report transaction details to the CRA to meet fiscal obligations? As for CRA reporting I can not comment on that, however we follow all legal requirements of a financial institution dealing with proper reporting.
How does the US IRS deal effect things on your end? did this announcement open the door back up for USD wire transfers? The IRS statement actually doesn't change to much for us, FinCEN and other entities still consider it as currency - we're still actively looking into US options and moving forward on some with our legal team.
Do you see cryptocurrency status changing in Canada as a result of the US ruling? Do you have any indication of the direction that the bureaucrats will take? We have met with our Member of Provincial Parliament, are meeting with our Member of Parliament and are having a meeting with the Minister of Finance arranged to continue to advocate on behalf of cryptocurrency in Canada.
From everything we've been hearing, we're optimistic about Canada's role in the future of Cryptocurrency, people have been very forward thinking and accepting here!
Disapointed you're getting ride of the free cash-out by cheque. And do you plan to have some sort of automated EFT withdraw ? you allready have my bank account into. Write now it would seem simpler to move my BTC to cavirtex when I'm ready to make a withdraw to my bank account, as I can do it from the website. What am I missing here ? thanks. We are rolling out a number of new payment methods shortly that will make withdrawals easier for our clients.
Hey guys, thanks for doing this AMA. You were my first exchange, and gave me a warm welcome to the world of Cryptocurrency (free trading through Reddit promo, invited me for Doge cake) I've actually had the pleasure of talking to some reps from the MintChip program - we kept a careful eye on it but I know that the Mint is selling it off to private enterprise. While it is in a different space from us we are always looking at the evolving landscape of digital money and what can be done to promote that in Canada.
I was going to ask about your stance on MintChip, the Canadian government's digital currency program, but I just read they were looking to sell it off! Has there been any interest at Vault of Satoshi about this technology? While I don't think there is any direct partnership opportunities at this time it is always something on our radar and I think that MintChip was an interesting hardware development and it was great to see a federal institution being so forward thinking!
Can you tell us when and if you'll be able to operate as an exchange with USD? We currently do accept USD, we just can't accept it from US citizens or institutions.
That being said we are glad to announce we have identified our US re-entry strategy and are moving forward to launching in a few states first. We have no formal timeline on this yet, but it's a big step in the right direction.
Quick question, if in the future I choose to close my account with VOS, will all my info and history also be deleted from your servers? As per government regulations if you have ever made a financial transaction we are required to keep your information on file for seven years.
If you have not made a financial transaction you may email us with a request to delete your information. Please note that the request will be kept on file.
Hey guys, Are there plans to incorporate google authenticator? Thanks and keep up the good work! User we already support Google Authenticator, YubiKey, SMS, and Email for 2FA and will be adding Authy and Gemalto soon!
Is your $99 per month Unlimited Plan in USD or CAD? Please state it on your website. It is currently billed in USD as that's more widely accepted with our international audience.
When will Darkcoin, Worldcoin, Mintcoin, Cryptogenic Bullion, and Maxcoin be added? Those coins will be added in the next few weeks! We're pretty excited about that!
Hi there! I have a level 2 VOS account. I'm not really comfortable filling out the form for level 3. Currently I have to use QuickBT or an ATM to get BTC - which sometimes I turn into DOGE. (THANK YOU FOR ADDING BTC<->DOGE! you guys are lifesavers!!) We're actually working on adding an instant online Interac payment system, still no formal timeline but it's in the works. As for email transfers from BMO, BMO has come out and said they aren't working with businesses that operate in cryptocurrencies and so we can't accept funds from them on anything that would require us to have a BMO account or registration there. But, we can accept Pre-authorized debit and wire transfers from accounts there! Also feel free to email me about any concerns you may have about the level 3 account and I'll see if can't reassure you! ([email protected])
Just wondering why there is no support for an Email Transfer from BMO. Or online Interac payment, as that's the only reason I use QuickBT.
Would you rather fight a horse-sized duck or a hundred duck sized horse. I prefer horse sized ducks! What a kamikaze!
Don't be so sure. YES! Take that Angelo! Horsefish!
'disabled login' Another word, the exchange is down. I've been trying to login and access my funds for the past 5 hours. We're back up now!
No need to be alarmed though people; this is just a result of VoS being pro-active with patching up the latest SSL security bug (heartbleed). Ah yes, that is indeed a side-effect of the patch. While our systems weren't directly effected a load balance server hosted by Amazon would have been so to be better safe than sorry we've got them patching it and we are rolling over to new SSL certs! Always better safe than sorry!
I can see your exchange being the top exchange in Canada. Great work! I will come up to brantford one day after my exams and bring you guys some timmies, depending on the weather it could be coffee or ice caps, or just let me know ha :) As for the UI we're currently giving it an overhaul on our internal servers and hope to have more info on that soon!
I know it's not much but I just sent 6000 Dogecoins :) Every bit helps :)
Whats the yearly revenue and profit of your company? Sorry, as a private company we are going to abstain from answering that one - but even if we wanted too, we couldn't; we've only been around for six months so far!
