There is some guidance on taxation. The IRS has made it clear that virtual currency is not tax exempt. Any wages paid using Bitcoin are taxable to the employee, must be reported by the employer, and are subject to all other federal and state taxes and withholdings. Therefore, the dollar value of any Bitcoins paid should be recorded to calculate such amounts. There is also some guidance by analogy to the issue of pay cards. Just last year a major fast food franchise was hit with a class action alleging that the practice of paying employees exclusively with pay cards violated the state wage laws based on paying wages in cash.
Recently, the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau advised that employers may only offer paycards if the employee is allowed to choose the financial institution at which the wages will be deposited or if the employee has the option to receive the pay in a different manner. Presumably, Bitcoins are subject to that same limitation: i.
There is also some guidance by analogy to payroll commitments in non-dollar currencies. Employers should continue to set base salaries and wages in dollars that meet state and federal minimum wage and overtime requirements, so that the amounts employees are paid do not fluctuate with the dollar-to-Bitcoin exchange rate.
Future Fraud Trends: Schemes on the horizon. In the remake of the film, "Miracle on 34th Street," a judge acknowledges that Kris Kringle, a department store Santa, actually is the real Santa after 6-year-old Susan shows the judge a U. Fiat currencies money that governments have declared to be legal tender without the backing of physical commodities exist because we trust them.
Old U. But the gold and silver exchange is long gone. In this column, we take a look at how cryptocurrencies came about, theories of how they work, their misuse for money laundering and other illicit activities and their future.
There are differences among e-currencies, such as e-gold and virtual currencies linden dollar , and cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Peercoin and Namecoin, among many others. Generally, e-currencies are allegedly supported by precious metals or other valuable materials.
Virtual currencies have value to those who want to use them in virtual worlds such as Second Life. The most widely known cryptocurrency is Bitcoin. However, there are many others. One site, coinmarketcap. No trust — or trusted third party such as a bank — is required because all the transactions are known to all the users but not the identities of the parties to the transactions.
Many believe that Nakamoto was a pseudonym for a group of computer scientists; after he published his proposal he mysteriously disappeared. However, a March Newsweek article raised the possibility that Nakamoto is a very real recluse living in Temple City, Calif.

The two researchers have also proposed updating the protocol to limit the size of mining groups and make the whole system less susceptible to a selfish attack.
Vitalik Buterin, technical editor of Bitcoin Magazine, said the attack was "highly theoretical" because no software currently existed that could turn an honest mining group into a selfish one. At the moment Bitcoin software shares information about what different miners are doing with the entire community.
For a group to become selfish they would have to change this fundamental Bitcoin software in order to manipulate this information flow. In addition, he said, only the biggest pools could try to subvert the system and the communication demands of the network would likely stymie those attempts.
In addition, he said, the rewards of selfish behaviour were outweighed by the benefits of being honest. Silk Road: Will cybercrime evolve? Cyber thieves target bitcoin owners. What is Bitcoin?

Individual mining rigs often have to wait for long periods to confirm a block of transactions and receive payment. In a pool, all participating miners get paid every time a participating server solves a block. This payment depends on the amount of work an individual miner contributed to help find that block. A wallet stores the information necessary to transact bitcoins.
While wallets are often described as a place to hold  or store bitcoins, due to the nature of the system, bitcoins are inseparable from the blockchain transaction ledger. A wallet is more correctly defined as something that "stores the digital credentials for your bitcoin holdings" and allows one to access and spend them. There are several modes which wallets can operate in. They have an inverse relationship with regards to trustlessness and computational requirements.
Third-party internet services called online wallets offer similar functionality but may be easier to use. In this case, credentials to access funds are stored with the online wallet provider rather than on the user's hardware. A malicious provider or a breach in server security may cause entrusted bitcoins to be stolen. An example of such a security breach occurred with Mt. Gox in Physical wallets store the credentials necessary to spend bitcoins offline and can be as simple as a paper printout of the private key:  : ch.
A paper wallet is created with a keypair generated on a computer with no internet connection ; the private key is written or printed onto the paper [h] and then erased from the computer. The paper wallet can then be stored in a safe physical location for later retrieval. Bitcoins stored using a paper wallet are said to be in cold storage. Physical wallets can also take the form of metal token coins  with a private key accessible under a security hologram in a recess struck on the reverse side.
Another type of physical wallet called a hardware wallet keeps credentials offline while facilitating transactions. Hardware wallets never expose their private keys, keeping bitcoins in cold storage even when used with computers that may be compromised by malware. The first wallet program, simply named Bitcoin , and sometimes referred to as the Satoshi client , was released in by Satoshi Nakamoto as open-source software. Bitcoin Core is, perhaps, the best known implementation or client.
On 1 August , Bitcoin Cash was created as result of a hard fork. On 24 October another hard fork, Bitcoin Gold , was created. Bitcoin Gold changes the proof-of-work algorithm used in mining, as the developers felt that mining had become too specialized. Bitcoin is decentralized thus: .
Researchers have pointed out at a "trend towards centralization". Although bitcoin can be sent directly from user to user, in practice intermediaries are widely used. The pool has voluntarily capped their hashing power at According to researchers, other parts of the ecosystem are also "controlled by a small set of entities", notably the maintenance of the client software, online wallets and simplified payment verification SPV clients.
Bitcoin is pseudonymous , meaning that funds are not tied to real-world entities but rather bitcoin addresses. Owners of bitcoin addresses are not explicitly identified, but all transactions on the blockchain are public. In addition, transactions can be linked to individuals and companies through "idioms of use" e. Wallets and similar software technically handle all bitcoins as equivalent, establishing the basic level of fungibility.
Researchers have pointed out that the history of each bitcoin is registered and publicly available in the blockchain ledger, and that some users may refuse to accept bitcoins coming from controversial transactions, which would harm bitcoin's fungibility. Gox froze accounts of users who deposited bitcoins that were known to have just been stolen. The blocks in the blockchain were originally limited to 32 megabytes in size. The block size limit of one megabyte was introduced by Satoshi Nakamoto in Eventually the block size limit of one megabyte created problems for transaction processing, such as increasing transaction fees and delayed processing of transactions.
Satoshi Nakamoto stated in his white paper that: "The root problem with conventional currencies is all the trust that's required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust. According to the European Central Bank , the decentralization of money offered by bitcoin has its theoretical roots in the Austrian school of economics , especially with Friedrich von Hayek in his book Denationalisation of Money: The Argument Refined ,  in which Hayek advocates a complete free market in the production, distribution and management of money to end the monopoly of central banks.
According to The New York Times , libertarians and anarchists were attracted to the idea. Early bitcoin supporter Roger Ver said: "At first, almost everyone who got involved did so for philosophical reasons. We saw bitcoin as a great idea, as a way to separate money from the state. Nigel Dodd argues in The Social Life of Bitcoin that the essence of the bitcoin ideology is to remove money from social, as well as governmental, control. The declaration includes a message of crypto-anarchism with the words: "Bitcoin is inherently anti-establishment, anti-system, and anti-state.
Bitcoin undermines governments and disrupts institutions because bitcoin is fundamentally humanitarian. David Golumbia says that the ideas influencing bitcoin advocates emerge from right-wing extremist movements such as the Liberty Lobby and the John Birch Society and their anti-Central Bank rhetoric, or, more recently, Ron Paul and Tea Party -style libertarianism.
It takes control back from central authorities. It's revolutionary. A study of Google Trends data found correlations between bitcoin-related searches and ones related to computer programming and illegal activity, but not libertarianism or investment topics. Bitcoin is a digital asset designed to work in peer-to-peer transactions as a currency. Economists define money as serving the following three purposes: a store of value , a medium of exchange , and a unit of account.
Shiller writes that bitcoin has potential as a unit of account for measuring the relative value of goods, as with Chile's Unidad de Fomento , but that "Bitcoin in its present form [ According to research by Cambridge University , between 2. The number of users has grown significantly since , when there were ,—1.
The overwhelming majority of bitcoin transactions take place on a cryptocurrency exchange , rather than being used in transactions with merchants. Prices are not usually quoted in units of bitcoin and many trades involve one, or sometimes two, conversions into conventional currencies.
In and bitcoin's acceptance among major online retailers included only three of the top U. Bitcoin is "not actually usable" for retail transactions because of high costs and the inability to process chargebacks , according to Nicholas Weaver, a researcher quoted by Bloomberg. High price volatility and transaction fees make paying for small retail purchases with bitcoin impractical, according to economist Kim Grauer.
However, bitcoin continues to be used for large-item purchases on sites such as Overstock. Bitcoins can be bought on digital currency exchanges. Per researchers, "there is little sign of bitcoin use" in international remittances despite high fees charged by banks and Western Union who compete in this market. In , the National Australia Bank closed accounts of businesses with ties to bitcoin,  and HSBC refused to serve a hedge fund with links to bitcoin.
On 10 December , the Chicago Board Options Exchange started trading bitcoin futures,  followed by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange , which started trading bitcoin futures on 17 December The request was motivated by oil company's goal to pay its suppliers. The Winklevoss twins have purchased bitcoin. Other methods of investment are bitcoin funds. The first regulated bitcoin fund was established in Jersey in July and approved by the Jersey Financial Services Commission.
Forbes named bitcoin the best investment of According to bitinfocharts. In August , MicroStrategy invested in Bitcoin. The price of bitcoins has gone through cycles of appreciation and depreciation referred to by some as bubbles and busts. According to Mark T.
Unusual for an asset, bitcoin weekend trading during December was higher than for weekdays. Because of bitcoin's decentralized nature and its trading on online exchanges located in many countries, regulation of bitcoin has been difficult. However, the use of bitcoin can be criminalized, and shutting down exchanges and the peer-to-peer economy in a given country would constitute a de facto ban.
Regulations and bans that apply to bitcoin probably extend to similar cryptocurrency systems. In October , the Islamic Republic News Agency announced pending regulations that would require bitcoin miners in Iran to sell bitcoin to the Central Bank of Iran , and the central bank would use it for imports. The U. Commodity Futures Trading Commission has issued four "Customer Advisories" for bitcoin and related investments. Securities and Exchange Commission warned that investments involving bitcoin might have high rates of fraud, and that investors might be solicited on social media sites.
The European Banking Authority issued a warning in focusing on the lack of regulation of bitcoin, the chance that exchanges would be hacked, the volatility of bitcoin's price, and general fraud. An official investigation into bitcoin traders was reported in May Justice Department launched an investigation into possible price manipulation, including the techniques of spoofing and wash trades.
Following the first delivery date in January , the CME requested extensive detailed trading information but several of the exchanges refused to provide it and later provided only limited data. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission then subpoenaed the data from the exchanges.
State and provincial securities regulators, coordinated through the North American Securities Administrators Association , are investigating "bitcoin scams" and ICOs in 40 jurisdictions. Academic research published in the Journal of Monetary Economics concluded that price manipulation occurred during the Mt Gox bitcoin theft and that the market remains vulnerable to manipulation. Research by John M. Griffin and Amin Shams in suggests that trading associated with increases in the amount of the Tether cryptocurrency and associated trading at the Bitfinex exchange account for about half of the price increase in bitcoin in late The Bank for International Settlements summarized several criticisms of bitcoin in Chapter V of their annual report.
The criticisms include the lack of stability in bitcoin's price, the high energy consumption, high and variable transactions costs, the poor security and fraud at cryptocurrency exchanges, vulnerability to debasement from forking , and the influence of miners. In , The Economist described these criticisms as unfair, since bitcoin had been relatively stable during that year, and the shady image may have compelled users to overlook the capabilities of the blockchain technology.
Bitcoin, along with other cryptocurrencies, has been described as an economic bubble by at least eight Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences laureates at various times, including Robert Shiller on 1 March ,  Joseph Stiglitz on 29 November ,  and Richard Thaler on 21 December Bitcoin has been criticized for the amount of electricity consumed by mining. As of [update] , The Economist estimated that even if all miners used modern facilities, the combined electricity consumption would be In July BBC reported bitcoin consumes about 7 gigawatts, 0.
To lower the costs, bitcoin miners have set up in places like Iceland where geothermal energy is cheap and cooling Arctic air is free. Concerns about bitcoin's environmental impact relate bitcoin's energy consumption to carbon emissions.
The results of recent studies analyzing bitcoin's carbon footprint vary. Journalists, economists, investors, and the central bank of Estonia have voiced concerns that bitcoin is a Ponzi scheme. Bitcoin is vulnerable to theft through phishing , scamming , and hacking.
The use of bitcoin by criminals has attracted the attention of financial regulators, legislative bodies, law enforcement, and the media. Senate held a hearing on virtual currencies in November Several news outlets have asserted that the popularity of bitcoins hinges on the ability to use them to purchase illegal goods. In , researchers at the University of Kentucky found "robust evidence that computer programming enthusiasts and illegal activity drive interest in bitcoin, and find limited or no support for political and investment motives".
There were an estimated 24 million bitcoin users primarily using bitcoin for illegal activity. In , Abkhazia placed a ban on Bitcoin. Velde, Senior Economist at the Chicago Fed , described it as "an elegant solution to the problem of creating a digital currency". Louis , stated that bitcoin is a threat to the establishment, which he argues is a good thing for the Federal Reserve System and other central banks , because it prompts these institutions to operate sound policies.
PayPal President David A. Marcus calls bitcoin a "great place to put assets". Bitcoin Core is free and open-source software that serves as a bitcoin node the set of which form the bitcoin network and provides a bitcoin wallet which fully verifies payments. It is considered to be bitcoin's reference implementation. Bitcoin Core includes a transaction verification engine and connects to the bitcoin network as a full node.
It does not facilitate the buying or selling of bitcoin. It allows users to generate QR codes to receive payment. The software validates the entire blockchain , which includes all bitcoin transactions ever. This distributed ledger which has reached more than gigabytes in size as of Jan , must be downloaded or synchronized before full participation of the client may occur.
It also provides access to testnet, a global testing environment that imitates the bitcoin main network using an alternative blockchain where valueless "test bitcoins" are used. Regtest or Regression Test Mode creates a private blockchain which is used as a local testing environment.
Checkpoints which have been hard coded into the client are used only to prevent Denial of Service attacks against nodes which are initially syncing the chain. For this reason the checkpoints included are only as of several years ago. This limited the maximum network capacity to about three transactions per second.
A network alert system was included by Satoshi Nakamoto as a way of informing users of important news regarding bitcoin. It had become obsolete as news on bitcoin is now widely disseminated. Bitcoin Core includes a scripting language inspired by Forth that can define transactions and specify parameters.
Two stacks are used - main and alt. Looping is forbidden. Bitcoin Core uses OpenTimestamps to timestamp merge commits. The original creator of the bitcoin client has described their approach to the software's authorship as it being written first to prove to themselves that the concept of purely peer-to-peer electronic cash was valid and that a paper with solutions could be written.
The lead developer is Wladimir J. Andresen left the role of lead developer for bitcoin to work on the strategic development of its technology. In Charles Stross ' science fiction novel, Neptune's Brood , the universal interstellar payment system is known as "bitcoin" and operates using cryptography. Bitcoin was obscure back then, and I figured had just enough name recognition to be a useful term for an interstellar currency: it'd clue people in that it was a networked digital currency.
The documentary The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin portrays the diversity of motives behind the use of bitcoin by interviewing people who use it. These include a computer programmer and a drug dealer. It covers studies of cryptocurrencies and related technologies, and is published by the University of Pittsburgh. Authors are also asked to include a personal bitcoin address in the first page of their papers. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
