The Bitcoin Catalog Logo

 

In early 2013, Antony Ferland founded The Bitcoin Catalog: which will be the world’s first printed and FREE digital PDF catalog featuring 300 Bitcoin related goods and services from around the globe.

About The Bitcoin Catalog:

The last month has seen mainstream media coverage of Bitcoin increase exponentially, with the meteoric rise of the Bitcoin to USD exchange rate. While many are speculating on the unprecedented digital currency as an investment vehicle, it is worth remembering that Bitcoin is also an electronic currency which can be used to easily and effortlessly purchase a myriad of goods and services worldwide.

The Bitcoin Catalog aims to be the definitive source for anyone to understand what is Bitcoin, how to get started with this currency, and where to acquire goods and services from all over the world with Bitcoin.

Readers can flick through the catalog and explore up to 300 Bitcoin websites, classified into four main categories: Bitcoin Related, Goods, Services and Local. To help the Bitcoin ecosystem in its quest to gain mainstream acceptance worldwide, The Bitcoin Catalog is currently offering Bitcoin related websites a listing in the second print edition of the catalog for a nominal fee of $30 converted to Bitcoin. Of course, Bitcoin is the only payment method to be included in the Catalog. The digital download version of the Catalog to be released in a few weeks will be FREE to the public, to ensure the Bitcoin merchants in the Catalog get as much exposure as possible.

Consumers, enthusiasts, and those wishing to learn more about the Bitcoin ecosystem can order the first edition of The Bitcoin Catalog at Thebitcoincatalog.com. For those who do not wish to receive the printed Bitcoin Catalog in the post, an option will be added in a few weeks to download the Catalog for FREE in digital PDF format.

Bitcoin related merchants, services and projects can also apply to have their website listed for the nominal fee of $30 converted to Bitcoin in the second edition of the Bitcoin Catalog here.

Payments for ordering the print version of the Bitcoin Catalog can be made via Bitcoin, Paypal, or Visa. The digital PDF version will be FREE. However, merchants wishing to be included in the Bitcoin Catalog can only pay with Bitcoin.

The Bitcoin Catalog will help make Bitcoin more accessible and easily understood by new adopters. As well as enabling readers to see the true extent of the Bitcoin ecosystem, and to easily discover where they can spend their Bitcoins worldwide. It is an exciting and groundbreaking new development for the global Bitcoin ecosystem.

Bitcoin Price at $44 to $46, First Bitcoin Hedge Fund Opens in Malta, Possible Global Market Cap, Bitcoin Crop Circles and More

by cdnadmin

Bitcoin has been trading at from $44 to $46 USD a piece for the last two hours on Mt Gox as of the writing of this article, a big change from the $50 it cracked two days ago. But, the long term trend is still upwards, and we can’t see this changing anytime soon as more funds keep pouring into the Bitcoin ecosystem worldwide.

The biggest news illustrating the emerging legitimacy of Bitcoin is the announcement of the first Bitcoin hedge fund in the world by Exante Ltd. The fund is based in Malta with Exante having offices in Malta, Russia and Singapore. Exante offers the Bitcoin Fund with an initial minimum investment of $100,000. The funds’ storage of Bitcoin includes security and anti theft mechanisms straight from a James Bond movie: covering data loss, hardware failure, jurisdictional risk, hacker risk, and dishonest employees. This includes password’s being separated into three different phrases and then stored in three different geographical regions worldwide. If anything, this means even more growth of the global market cap of Bitcoin.

In fact, here’s a rough little infographic we found illustrating the potential future market cap of the global Bitcoin ecosystem, compared to now:

Possible Bitcoin Market Cap

And, straight from the fringes we have a Bitcoin crop circle. Extraterrestrial interest in the currency of the future? We’ll leave you to decide on that one ..

The last 48 Hours in Bitcoin: Price at $44, BitPay Secures More Angel Investors, Kim Dotcom Bitcoin Mega Credit Card? MegaCard

by cdnadmin

The last 48 hours has seen an explosion of activity in the Bitcoin ecosystem and beyond.

Most excitingly for all the investors / speculators / enthusiasts and those wondering whether to dip their toes in the cryptocurrency water – the BTC price is currently trading on MtGox at over $44 USD a piece, and has been trading steady at over $44 (EDIT: holding $46 for over two hours now) for the past two hours.

Kim Dotcom tweeted on Monday that BItcoin was “the currency of the future” and that it’s time for a Bitcoin credit card. If anyone has the resources to pull if off it in a big way, it is most certainly the millionare behind the encrypted cloud storage service Mega, who rose to internet fame after the US shut down prolific file host MegaVideo in January 2012. MegaCard coming soon?

In the last 24 hours, Bitcoin merchant processing service BitPay, which now has over 3 300 merchants using its service, has expanded its seed round: securing more angel investment from Ben Davenport, Trace Mayer, and A-Grade Investments. In February, BitPay recently relocated its office to the Atlanta Tech Village in the epicentre of Buckhead’s Financial District.

Meanwhile, Forbes has pronounced that Bitcoin is ready to go mainstream with the first U.S Exchange, with Seattle based start up Coinlab recently receiving $500 000 in start up capital and announcing a recent partnership with Silicon Valley Bank. This brings Mt Gox, the largest Bitcoin exchange, to U.S shores. The exchange has a trade volume of nearly $500 000 000 per year; and this is forecast to grow by ten times in the next year.

One thing’s for sure: Bitcoin is everywhere, it’s growing and the adoption rate doesn’t show any signs of slowing any time soon.
