A new Japanese law that defines digital currencies as a legal payment method goes into effect on April 1, 2017. That law applies the country’s know-your-customer and anti-money-laundering regulations to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, requires exchanges to meet capital and cybersecurity requirements, and will subject those exchanges to annual audits.
The United States Senate voted late Friday night to pass H.R. 0401, titled America’s Plan to Restore Individual Liberty and Financial Openness for Our Localities and States. That bill, which President Donald J. Trump has vowed to sign when it reaches his desk later this evening, will effectively end the use of the Dollar as official U.S. currency, and replace it with Bitcoin and a “basket” of other digital currencies. In a surprising show of bipartisan solidarity, the bill passed both the House and Senate without a single dissenting vote.
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.
The West Virginia legislature has included cryptocurrency in a list of monetary instruments subject to a proposed bill defining criminal penalties for money laundering offenses. The bill, titled Creating felony crime of conducting financial transactions involving proceeds of criminal activity, has a total of eleven sponsors – ten Republicans and one Democrat, and is currently being reviewed by the House Judiciary Committee.
As DNotes celebrates its 3rd Birthday, Co-Founder Alan Yong offered his thoughts on DNotes’ long term vision to gain mass acceptance of digital currency and the blockchain technology that makes it possible.

In a new article published today, DNotes Global Inc. Founder Alan Yong has his own thoughts to share on the current climate for U.S. businesses – with a special focus on new startups. Ever the realist, Yong doesn’t shy away from reminding us about just how bad things have been for small businesses in recent years.
The state government in Illinois this week announced that its Digital Currency Regulatory Guidance proposal had been released for public comment. The guidance provides an overview of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation’s (IDFPR) policy on cryptocurrency, as well as its interpretation of how the state’s Transmitters of Money Act apply to various digital currency activities. The IDFPR release is part of a broader effort to incorporate blockchain technology into the state’s official government operations.
Russia’s federal tax service weighed in on the subject of cryptocurrency legality this week when it released a document confirming that digital currencies are indeed legal to own and use inside the Russian Federation. In its assessment, the tax services declared that cryptocurrencies are viewed as foreign currencies, and that transactions using those currencies are monetary transactions. Under Russia’s current monetary control system, that also means that digital currency transactions are not subject to financial reporting requirements.

Cryptocurrency Company DNotes Launches Kickstarter Campaign for the New Book “The Four Pillars of Business Success” In the Spirit of ‘Small Business Week’
DNotes co-founder, highly regarded visionary and early Cryptocurrency adopter Alan Yong shares his experiences and lessons from over 4 decades of entrepreneurship in his new book “The Four Pillars of Business Success”. DNotes is now launching a Kickstarter campaign as they continue celebrating ‘Small Business Week’.
This is the true story of how DNotes founder Alan Yong’s vision, leadership, and winning strategies positioned the organization to best compete in a crowded and chaotic industry at its formative stage. The decentralized, “Wild West” nature of the industry is unforgiving – the lack of regulation, and the inability of centralized authorities to govern the cryptocurrency industry, makes it strategically vital to protect the business against unpredictable market movements. The DNotes story is unique in that a similar situation has not previously existed where so many challenges and uncertainties coincide with a new business startup in a nascent industry.
Money has been used as the go-to method for teaching children to count as well as learning other math basics since the dawn of modern currency.
What will happen to elementary school math as we move toward digital currency?
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could pay with or purchase virtually any kind of currency in the world no matter where you were?

2015 was a busy year for DNotes. The company saw to the creation of multiple savings plans to help either retired persons or attending university students. It is also seeking to create a new business entity that fully integrates the blockchain, and DCEBrief has set out on a mission to provide solid, no-nonsense stories regarding DNotes and the world of digital currency in general. When all is said and done, DNotes clearly has a lot on its plate, and this is JUST THE BEGINNING…
According to the UN, 2.1 trillion dollars, or 3.6% of the worlds GDP is generated by crime. Such large criminal networks cost innocent people in a multitude of ways, including spending additional tax dollars on law enforcement, unfair financial regulations imposed on everyone in an attempt to deter crime, loss of tax revenue for your governing body, and many more. Any effort to combat such criminal activity has been limited in success because law enforcement has not had adequate tools at their disposal to infiltrate these underground financial networks, until now…
DNotes today announced the early 2016 release of a book for small business owners.

DNotes officials have confirmed that the new company launch and the planned book release are part of an ongoing strategy to differentiate the DNotes ecosystem and better serve partners and customers throughout the cryptocurrency industry and beyond.
For the young, retirement planning is almost always at the bottom of any list of priorities. In today’s economy, most people are so focused on economic survival in the here and now that they have little energy left for that type of long-term preparation – much less the financial resources necessary for implementing those plans. To make matters worse, even those people who have been focused on preparing for their eventual exit from the workplace have often faced tremendous economic obstacles over the last several decades. 401k plans, company pensions, and other retirement vehicles can certainly help, but none of them can guarantee the type of financial stability most retirees need. If you find yourself concerned about your future and in search of some way to supplement your eventual retirement income, a digital currency like DNotes or Bitcoin may provide the answer you need.
Speaking at the latest Bitcoin Conference in Las Vegas, former director of the U.S. Mint Edmund C. Moy spoke about the privatization of money, and he feels that bitcoin could lead us back to a world where finances are placed in the hands of the people.
This is the primary goal behind cryptocurrency, to give financial independence to the average citizen, and services such as the DNotesVault are acting as custodians in a sense; privatizing transactions and the money used to protect customers and stop the government from marching in and claiming extra tax. Compared with the methods of traditional banking, digital currency certainly has the potential to bring us the secure, independent nature we all desire for our monetary dealings.
It has long been argued that the financial and tech sectors of our globe were built by men FOR men, and when one looks at bitcoin, it’s hard to disagree. As it stands, the majority of bitcoin users and advocates (about 95 percent) are of the male persuasion, and the time has come for women to become more involved.
Women hold great spending power, and their financial prowess is greater than one might think. According to a number of publications and reports, women not only outspend males in almost every capacity, but they dominate the small-business world and should their enthusiasm for digital currency broaden, cryptocurrencies could move up the ranks in the financial world.
The student debt crisis has reached a new high. With graduates owing an average $35K and the nation holding over $1.2 trillion in student loan debt, many have searched unsuccessfully for ways to alleviate the problem. Trust in traditional banks has fallen flat, and respective loans no longer seem to be a definitive answer.
But the future may present methods we never saw coming. A digital currency rewards program for students just might be what is needed to halt the crisis before it gets any worse. By teaching students more about cryptocurrency and allowing them to develop an appreciation for it, virtual money could offer some much needed relief…
