Top 7 People Who Became Rich Because of Bitcoin - CryptoCurry

Jered Kenna: Tradehill founder partnering with Broker Dealer and launching new platform on TradeZero

My name is Jered Kenna, in 2011 I founded Tradehill; the first US based Bitcoin exchange.
After Tradehill closed it's doors I designed a platform to facilitate off market trades. As a trader and exchange operator the Bitcoin side has never been a problem. The difficulties in the digital currency world have always involved the banks.
With the goal of bringing more speed and liquidity to Bitcoin I've partnered with TradeZero; a licensed broker dealer. US Dollars and other national currencies are held in a reputable international bank. The Bitcoin is secured with Bitgo at no additional cost to our users.
There are currently three ways to trade with us.
Transfer: If you simply want to send currency to someone else on the platform type in their email address or account number. The transaction is instant and non reversible. 0.2% flat fee for the sender.
Direct Trade: Essentially a two way transfer. Use this if you have a preexisting relationship with someone whom you would like to trade. Enter their email or account number followed by the trade details you would like to propose. For example “700 USD for 1XBT(BTC)”. The other party will then be asked to either accept or reject the trade. Upon acceptance the trade will instantly close and be settled. Either party can cancel the trade until that point. Trades are final and there is a 0.2% fee for the initiator.
Dark Pool: Much like a common floating exchange with a few key differences. There is an order book with bids and asks but it is not visible. There is only one order type. Bids and asks are filled at the price requested. The biggest advantage is the ability to move large trades without disturbing the market. If you're looking to make a large buy or sell you can do so without tipping your hand. On a typical exchange a large sell would drive the price down resulting in a worse price for the seller. Conversely a large buy order would raise the price. This is known as slippage. There is no fee on the dark pool. Currently there is a .2% minimum spread for orders to close.
Launch and perspective clients. Our original launch announcement was in August. http://www.reuters.com/article/us-bitcoin-trading-darkpool-idUSKCN10M1ZA . Unfortunately around the launch date details were becoming available on the Bitfenix hack. Bitgo began to make changes and we decided to take advantage of the fact that we were just getting started. We halted our launch and began to modify the platform to be more secure and improve the user interface. All of the modifications are complete and have been thoroughly tested.
TradeZero is open to everyone that is interested in opening an account with $10,000 or more in USD or Bitcoin. TradeZero accepts high net worth individuals, businesses and institutions. Please note that the stock trading portion of TradeZero is not open to US citizens. The digital currency side is.

Here are today's top news stories in Money & Tech

Video here: http://www.moneyandtech.com/apr8-news-update/
Congressman Steve Stockman of Texas, who was the first member of Congress to accept bitcoin campaign donations, announced at Inside Bitcoins New York that he plans to introduce the first piece of U.S. legislation on virtual currencies called The Virtual Currency Tax Reform Act. The legislation would re-categorize virtual currencies as currency for IRS federal tax purposes. Stockman says he hopes this bill will ""build awareness and create a consensus in the Bitcoin community around government regulation of virtual currencies.""
Also today at Inside Bitcoins New York, multi-signature security company BitGo announced the launch of BitGo Enterprise, a new suite of services for businesses and financial institutions operating in digital currency. As Will OBrien puts it, the service offers enterprise "the power to securely store and effectively manage Bitcoin holdings”.
Governor of the Bank of Japan Haruhiko Kuroda expressed his doubts about bitcoin at a central bank policy meeting today, saying that “Without safety or stability in its value, there would be no demand. In that sense, it cannot be a currency.” And Capitol Hill is getting its first bitcoin ATM today. A new Robocoin ATM machine will be unveiled to members of Congress this afternoon, where they can buy and sell bitcoin.
Word of a new web bug has spread over the past twelve hours, this time in OpenSSL, which is an encryption library widely used by websites to encrypt and secure internet traffic. The new bug, coined the Heartbleed bug, allows anyone on the Internet to access a service provider's data, as well as users' names and passwords, if their systems are protected by vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. While major bitcoin companies Blockchain, Coinbase and BitPay appear to be safe from this bug, several others are finding themselves at risk. Exchange BitStamp announced today that they are temporarily deactivating account registration and withdrawals while they work to patch their system. And Bitfinex likewise halted withdrawals on their exchange this morning. LocalBitcoins also suffered some recent downtime while patching the bug.
Despite the recent price drop, industry leaders at today's Inside Bitcoins NY conference remain optimistic about the future of the digital currency. SecondMarket CEO Barry Silbert remains particularly bullish, telling others at the event that we will be seeing another major price bubble once Wall Street investors gain enough confidence in the institutional infrastructure to throw their money into the pot.
Eric Holder commented on Bitcoin today while speaking to the House Judiciary Committee. He warned that "Virtual currencies can pose challenges for law enforcement given the appeal they have among those seeking to conceal illegal activity." Mr Holder however is not calling for an end to Bitcoin, but instead on keeping the government abreast of the technology saying, "The department is committed to innovating alongside this new technology in order to ensure our investigations are not impeded by any improvement in criminals' ability to move funds anonymously."
Recently, we sat down with Alex Waters of the CoinApex incubator to talk about their latest project CoinValidation, and how it will provide invaluable regulatory support for bitcoin businesses. Find that interview, as well as more information on today’s news stories, at Moneyandtech.com. I’m Jered Kenna, and this has been Money and Tech’s daily news update.
