He explained the motivation behind his move: “this industry is so messed up right now,” he said. The problem is that today “we have one use case” – betting on the price of cryptocurrency. And that’s spawned numerous pointlessly competing coins. To realise the full efficiency gains that Bitcoin makes possible, Jack argues, we need more kinds of transactions, not just financial speculation: “a thousand different use cases, not a thousand different coins”.
Finally, I asked why Jack is putting his faith in Bitcoin SV rather than other currencies. “I don’t think I’m picking BSV,” he said, “I think I’m picking Bitcoin.”
Jeremy Allaire, CEO at cryptocurrency financial services company Circle, expressed his optimism in regards to Bitcoin (BTC) being a safe haven for investors despite recent market volatility.
"Clearly, a non-sovereign digital asset like bitcoin is attractive to people who are interested in moving capital into a place where they can control it themselves. That underscores a lot of interest that’s been there over time. It’s the digital gold thesis, and I think a lot of both institutional accumulators of bitcoin, individuals, very specifically individuals in jurisdictions or environments where the intense concern about capital controls are there. That’s an underlying thesis that I think has had an impact on it for the last eight years."

The company 'Circle' did something very good for bitcoin last week
Hello, I'm very new to bitcoin and that's exactly why I'm here writing this. Based on the preliminary search I made on this sub you guys don't have much love for Circle but they did a great thing for bitcoin last week that I thought you should know about. Last week was an event called CPAC, an annual event for the American conservative base to hear from and interact with Republican and Libertarian politicians. I worked at the event staffing a governor which brings me to the point of this post. In the speaker lounge, a room only for the politicians, media heavy hitters like Sean Hannity, and the respective staff there were these cards on every table. Even a wealthy politician will take a look at and likely pickup a $5 bill they see on the ground and quite a few were interested in the card and, perhaps more importantly, their staff were as well. After figuring it out myself I helped a dozen or so people in the room get set up on Circle, add $5 to their account, and showed them how easy it was to transfer funds from one account to another. Whoever thought of putting those cards in the room was very smart. It helped more policy makers understand Bitcoin in a way that no congressional hearing or YouTube video could. Now, one quick question, why does my account address change on the app? Wouldn't it make sense for that to be static? Edit: exploring Circle led to exploring other things like Stripe, ChangeTip, and Coinbase

Circle CEO and Founder Jeremy Allaire believes Paypal will be the first major e-commerce/payment acceptance company to adopt bitcoin and is keeping an eye on Stripe and Square to launch their beta platforms reaching hundreds of thousands of merchants. 30:05 min. mark
Bitcoin spikes to near $10,300, marking a gain of more than $900, or about 10 percent, over 24 hours on Coinbase. Cross-border currency exchange company Circle did announce around the time of the spike that it is acquiring Poloniex, a leading cryptocurrency trading platform.
Are there any Business schools in America offering classes or certification in Bitcoin? If not, what major/minor should I take to become hired at a crypto friendly company? Like Coinbase, Circle, and etc.
Not programming courses but business management type of classes. I heard NYU has some but I probably won't be accepted there. Are there also any schools even considering this as a course, degree, or certification option for students? I need to transfer to a new university soon for my masters in international business + a minor geography. I see so much potential behind crypto currencies that I am determined to take certain courses that will lead me down a path by which I may one day be able to run the business end of a crypto friendly company. Even if there aren't any schools specifically teaching Bitcoin related material, what would you consider a good Major and Minor combo to enter a related business in the future?
Tobia De Angelis: What's happening to #bitcoin right now is exactly what happens to tech companies when marketing/bus people overstep their circle of competence and politics driven decision-making collides with reasonable dev roadmap
What's happening to #bitcoin right now is exactly what happens to tech companies when marketing/bus people (like me, btw) ..
..overstep their circle of competence and politics driven decision-making collides with reasonable dev roadmap.
TBN I don't think anybody here is inherently malevolent. It's just Bus ppl assume they have a right to dictate the roadmap. They don't.
In companies the business ppl usually win, but BTC decentralised structure makes it a different animal.
The fundamental problem is today most core contributors - e.g. Corallo - are against this "agreement". It means it's not an agreement.
What I consider at the edge of surreal of this story, is that the doc was signed in the context of an altcoin focused conf. Wut?
Talks about vaporware and "global regulation" (LOL) at all times high. Hey Mom, I'm finally living our gen dotcom bubble, but more nerd
Even super smart people are supporting this "agreement" but I suspect they'll change idea when hitting the wall of un-implementability.
My fundamental idea is: accepting this political solution makes things even worse. The scaling problem is just delayed at expenses of..
..decentralisation aka what makes BTC censorship-resistant that - reminder - is THE fundamental feature igniting tribal belief and ..
.. providing the fertile soil for the subsequent gigantic network effect / adoption that brought all of us here at 10s of bns mkt cap.
(Note: surprisingly, this whole point wasn't really examined in @benthompson 's analysis, which, side note, I mostly agree with.)
Anyway, bw pirates launching ICOs to experiment and Sales ppl taking over BTC, I have no doubt bt who's truly helping our community.
IMHO Litecoin Segwit implementation was the single best contribution to BTC in the last weeks. The. Single. Biggest.
Conclusion: let's see what happens now. It's a scary and exciting moment 2 live. I'm confident rationality will prevale. Long Live BTC

Circle seems to not mention bitcoin at all on their front page and barely at all on any of their pages. And is asking users to change their wallets to USD. Is circle meaningfully a bitcoin company at all now? I don't think they are secretly holding everything in bitcoin on the backend. Have they just dropped bitcoin entirely? Except the most barebones integration?
