Bitcoin research


This week a friend contact me regarding Bitcoins and a new opportunity. Last month I gave a talk that included bitcoin and lately I have heard that the value was returning to bitcoin and the ecosystem has grown since the last time I was following it.

Doing some research I came across a Bitcoin podcast called The Bitcoin Show, with Bruce Wagner. The show had a lot of content, and I think is exciting to see that the economy around it and the services are growing by the bit.

There has also been some bad news including the sinking of Bitconica one of the very first bitcoin trading platforms. It’s wiki profile say:

Was an online service that enabled leveraged speculation in its contract-for-difference (CFD) market against the Bitcoin to USD (BTC/USD) exchange rate.

There also has been a lot of new bitcoin resources like Bitcoin Magazine which is a real magazine in the US with digital issues and also good web portal explaining stories about Bitcoin.

Services like Bitcoin ventures which is an investor association for Bitcoin services. These services will enable grow the total ammount of services in the netsphere and maybe close the gap between digital currency and real currency.

I still need to look for more bitcoin services in Mexico which means that there could be a lot of opportunities giving the unaparent sphere of services. Then expand the propositon to latin-american services and eventually global services of bitcoins which are also the most aparent.

MtGrox is one of the many iconic companies of the Bitcoin revolution, located in Japan, Mt Grox is the premier reference for bitcoin exchanges and some Bitcoin events like conferences have already been held in New York City last year which a huge turn around.

Bit-Pay, is a payment processing which acts like a mall type of centralized portal for products and services. They have mobile apps, and also other type of services.

Bitcoinme is also a good blog about bitcoin althought like some of the other blogs I have seen, they are a bit outdated. But most of the information applies.

I hope to report some of the services that would come from Bitcoin as it evolves.
