Bitcoin Week: China Crash, Bloomberg Theft, Holidays, Bitcoin Leah
Here is a roundup of the top Bitcoin news from last week.
A Bloomberg reporter showed the private key from his Bitcoin paper wallet on TV. Oops! The $20 from that wallet was stolen soon after. The reporter, Matt Miller, had a good sense of humor about it though.
The price of Bitcoin crashed on reports that the People’s Bank of China banned payment processors from allowing deposits from RMB into Bitcoin.
Later in the week, BTC China CEO Bobby Lee penned an open letter to his user base about the recent developments in China and launched a new cold storage product called Currency Lock. Lee is still searching for alternative ways for investors to deposit RMB into BTC China.
Our own contributor @BitcoinLeah wrote a narrative called “Pay me in Bitcoin from now on” about her experience of driving to Las Vegas to meet with Bitcoin executives, and concluded that it’s better to get paid in Bitcoin.
You should also check out the exclusive video of Bitcoin Leah interviewing Brock Pierce, Alan Meckler, Sam Cole, and other Bitcoin executives.
And much more!
