House Bill Would Offer Tax Exemption for Small Crypto Transactions

For digital currency users in the United States who might want to use their cryptocurrency for real-world commercial transactions, the rules under the existing tax regime are both complex and inexplicable. Those rules can turn even the most minor transactions into reportable capital gains – which is why digital currency users currently need to carefully record their transactions to track any potential tax obligations that may arise. A new bill in the U.S. House of Representatives could help to ease that burden.

Op-Ed: Separating Wealth Creation from the State – Does DNotes Have the Answer?

Did you know that digital currency is already providing a degree of monetary sovereignty for countries whose governments have abandoned their nation currencies – like Greece and other countries in Europe where citizens are forced to use the Euro? There is no denying that Bitcoin can fulfill this function up to a certain point. However, it’s important to consider whether the consensus of direction required for large-scale mass adoption is possible without a more centralized leadership model. After all, where money is concerned, individuals without a common set of interests will always look out for their own interests first and foremost. Strong and united leadership can not only aid in protecting the value of any cryptocurrency; it can also help to unite large groups of individuals and provide them with the common interests and long-term goals needed to help stabilize that currency’s value.

Welcome to the Bitcoin 2000

Okay, maybe it’s not the Indianapolis 500, but anyone watching the Bitcoin rally over the last few weeks could certainly be forgiven for assuming that the world’s most well-known digital currency thinks that it’s on a race track. After all, this is a currency that began 2017 valued at just under $1,000. Over the course of the next few months, it struggled to gain traction for the upward price momentum so many observers were anticipating as the new year dawned. My, how quickly things can change.

In a surprising show of bipartisan solidarity, the bill passed both the House and Senate without a single dissenting vote.

Tech Revolutions: Cryptocurrency vs. Personal Computers – Interview with Alan Yong

Like many technological advances before it, cryptocurrency has spawned a rapidly developing industry. In this highly competitive field it is important to have every advantage you can get. Anyone can put together a team of individuals and give themselves impressive sounding titles, but few have watched the process of innovation take place first hand, because most are too young to remember the internet and personal computer booms, as well as the subsequent bubbles. The same cannot be said for DNotes co-founder Alan Yong, however – a man who has 40 years of business experience, including 20 years as a pioneering innovator in the software and personal computer industries.

His company, Dauphin Technology, went head-to-head with industry giants such as Apple computer Inc., Tandy Corp., and Motorola in the early days of the personal computer revolution. Since he has seen firsthand the trials and tribulations that projects in emerging tech sectors can face, he knows better than most how to avoid the pitfalls that threaten most entrepreneurs.
