Gold-Backed Tokens: Overheard in the Bitcoin Shoppe

A regular at the Shoppe mentioned something cool today. It’s an Ethereum token redeemable for physical precious metals. How? Well, the company hasn’t explained that yet. According to their website, they are first seeking permission from various “authorities” where they plan to serve customers.

Their website says Coming Soon, but the last update was from 3 months ago. Here’s a more recent Medium article about the token. The price is currently $0.14

Another guy came in today who just moved to Nashua and is hardcore into mining. He told me about TurtleCoin. It’s a hard-fork of Monero and he seems to think it’s worth mining because it’s so easy and you can exchange it for BTC. I set him up with a Dash wallet so he could spend it around Bitcoin Village, and he was really happy to buy a Monero shirt. He used Verge to buy it! That’s the one coin that PornHub accepts for payment. Pretty interesting.

Cool Connections: German Libertarians Discover Bitcoin Shoppe, Purchase Cufflinks, Share Liberty Blogs

These excellent German tourists stopped by the Bitcoin Shoppe by accident — they noticed the sign and stopped in. All of them own bitcoin, but they had never used it to buy real things in a retail store. They each downloaded wallets and then loaded them with coins. Then they purchased bitcoin cufflinks and a bitcoin tie.

One of them, Stefan, shared with me a post he wrote on his friend’s blog. I could tell from the banner of the site that this was going to be good.

Dash Core Contributor Darren Tapp Endorses Anypay Proposal on NeoCash Radio

Darren Tapp is a core developer of Dash, one of the major viable cryptocurrencies vying for the number one spot to replace the dollar and become digital cash used the world over. He has made several significant contributions to the codebase, and he hosts a regular podcast called NeoCash Radio where he discusses important events in the world of cryptocurrency. Recently on the show, he endorsed a particular Dash proposal — something he’s never done before.

Dash proposals can be written and submitted by anyone. It costs 5 Dash to submit the proposal, and you can request any amount of money in return for the goal you propose. The proposal is evaluated by the Dash Master Node network, and each Master Node gets a vote for or against (or abstain). Anypay made a proposal last month to expand its efforts to bring the best merchant point-of-sale app to the world — one that allows businesses to accept digital cash. You can already use Anypay today by going to Anypay.Global. It’s free and respects your privacy.

You can read the proposal here: https://dashcentral.org/p/anypay
