T-Mobile clients can now top-up their phones with Bitcoin in Poland

Following an announcement in late February, T-Mobile is accepting Bitcoin in Poland within a trial program. The company’s customers can now buy phone credits using cryptocurrency. 
T-Mobile’s Polish unit, also known as Polska Telefonia Cyfrowa, teamed up with Warsaw-based Bitcoin processor InPay in order to accept digital money. The partnership aims to make the most of BTC’s popularity among Polish prepaid telephone users.
t-mobile_pl_new“Our team is constantly looking for new opportunities, partnerships and cooperations with startups bringing great ideas. One of the reasons behind this initiative was to test how quick and comfortable the top-up process could be. Simplifying it to four taps while keeping high security standards is a significant achievement,” a spokesperson from T-Mobile Polandtold CoinDesk.

BIT Poised to Become Publicly Traded Bitcoin Fund Fund has been racing against rival offering from Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss

BIT Poised to Become Publicly Traded Bitcoin Fund
Fund has been racing against rival offering from Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss
Barry Silbert’s Bitcoin Investment Trust is poised to become the first publicly traded bitcoin fund, with approval and assignment of a ticker symbol by the financial industry’s main self-regulatory body paving the way for trading on an electronic platform operated by OTC Markets Group .
The BIT, which was first launched in 2013 as a private fund for accredited investors with annual incomes greater than $200,000 or assets of more than $1 million, has been racing against a rival offering by twins Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, best known for their lawsuit against Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg .
While the competing Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust is going through a lengthy Securities and Exchange Commission process to register a formal exchange-traded fund, the BIT has taken a backdoor route to public listing. By exploiting a rule that allows holders of a private fund to sell their shares publicly after a 12-month lockup period and completing a less arduous approval process with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, some of those long-held shares in BIT should soon be available to investors of any income or wealth bracket. The BIT is sponsored by Grayscale Investments, a unit of Mr. Silbert’s Digital Currency Group, which he established last year to hold the digital currency interests of his broker-dealer SecondMarket Inc.

Blockchain la vera rivouzione

Come spiegato in un recente articolo del giornalista americanoScott Rosenberg, l’obiettivo del Blockchain è proprio quello di sostituire i server che oggi “sostengono” il mondo online fornendo il potere di calcolo e di stoccaggio. Chi si fa da garante dell’identità online e dell’integrità dei contenuti scambiati e in cambio di cosa? Ad oggi, le aziende e i governi sono le autorità che accertano le transazioni, gli intermediari imprescindibili che garantiscono la veridicità e l’affidabilità di ciò che si scambia online.

Stiamo parlando di Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Twitter, Yahoo! — per citarne alcune — che si fanno garanti delle nostre identità digitali a patto di ottenere i nostri dati. Con la Blockchain, la legittimità delle transazioni (di moneta, informazioni, identità, servizi) è garantita collettivamente. La nostra intera esistenza online potrebbe essere disintermediata da progetti che si basano su una tecnologia di questo tipo, che permette di verificare l’identità di chi vi collabora senza per questo obbligarci a cedere la proprietà dei dati che trasmettiamo (alcuni pionieri sono ad esempio Twister e Trsst).
