How do ancaps solve the Berwick problem?

Jeff Berwick is the notorious scammer that preys on other ancaps and feudalists. His con resume includes Bitcoin ATMs, Galt’s Gulch Chile, and his bread and butter, the Passport scam.
Some people "got the word out" but that hasn't stopped Berwick from profiting off pilfering. The problem is, if we lived in Ancapistan, Berwick would be able to keep up the kelpto until he had enough resources to turn Ancapistan into Soviet Ancapistan.
What I want to know from you ancaps is how Berwick would be stopped from scamming if he could be stopped from scamming and why he wasn't stopped from scamming from his fellow feaudalists already?

The early May dip : 3 reasons why Bitcoin is presently tanking.

The past couple of days have seen a substantial dip in the value of Bitcoin. From a high of 140$US on May 1st to a present value of 98$US and dropping. Some of you may be asking why the sudden decrease in value? IMHO these are 3 reasons for which I believe we are seeing such a decline.
However, taking all of this into account for the time being does not mean that you too should join the panicking herd of sellers. I believe the smart thing to do is get fiat into the exchange, preferbly neither Mt. Gox nor CoinLab. ( There are plently of alternatives out there: btc-e, bitstamp, cavirtex, libertybit ) This way you are ready to buy when the price gets low.
There will be an upward trend in the coming weeks of May. I say this because I believe in the fundamentals of Bitcoin. An open-source, entirely transparent form of currency that only I control and can access. I think that the vast amount of functionality that can arise from the Bitcoin protocol such as built-in escrow and contract agreements will improve Bitcoin once fully implemented. Other than Bitcoin's fundamentals it has strong support from a number of promising start ups including Coinbase, Buttercoin, Opencoin, Bitpay among many others to come!
So be prepared to buy low if you want to increase you stake in Bitcoins future. Following the Bitcoin2013 convention; awareness will spread and I predict a sudden surge in Bitcoins value. That's my 2mBTC!
Edit (May 3rd 2013): I did not think this post would get so much attention. The main point was to bring up some of the most recent controversial antics in the Bitcoin world which point to the downward trend we've been seeing the past few days. There are other underlying causes for this as well albeit less important than the ones I've highlighted. ( Jeff Berwick leaving the BitcoinATM team and not to mention the extreme market manipulation by bots. ) With these points illustrated I wanted to express the fresh buying opportunities that we a presently seeing. All of these sticky situations wills dissolve from our minds very soon and when that happens the price will go up. These actions that caused the Bitcoin price to dwindle will only weed out the weak hands looking for a quick buck and give cheap buying opportunity to those who actually believe that Bitcoin will strive due to its properties and potential as a global currency/commodity. We are still in the beginning chapters of Bitcoin. It will take a substantial amount of time and events to overcome until we can witness something we can refer to as stable for Bitcoin. Until then the hardcore speculators and sketched out Bitcoin users will continue to sell and the strong hands of Bitcoiners who have faith in it's success will continue to buy or hold.

BitcoinATM Press Demo San Diego, CA May 2

On March 25, 2013, Canadian media and technology entrepreneur, Jeff Berwick, announced the completion of the world’s first BitcoinATM machine and announced it would soon take it to market.
Today, just over one month later, BitcoinATM is announcing its grand inauguration and launch press conference and reception. BitcoinATM will be unveiling its G6000 BitcoinATM at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, CA on Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 1pm.
The machine will be displayed and presented as fully functional for both cash in and cash out capabilities with a real time presentation showing the funds flowing into or out of bitcoin wallets.
The company garnered much media attention over the past month with its plans to bring Bitcoin to mainstreet with its ATM, which, unlike traditional ATM’s, features cash-in and cash-out capabilities for users looking to either buy bitcoins or sell bitcoins.
Cementing itself among the forefront of Bitcoin startups, BitcoinATM maintains its plan to place an ATM in Cyprus, as well as throughout the Americas and the world.
Since announcing its technology, the company has received franchisee inquiries from 300 groups in over 30 countries spanning every continent on the globe except Antarctica. BitcoinATM is also in the process of closing a first round of fundraising expected to be in the $1-3 million range to handle growth and demand.
There is a limited number of space available for the afternoon gathering and a large amount of interest, so BitcoinATM asks all media and interested parties to send the company an e-mail to RSVP to [email protected]. For more information on BitcoinATM you can go to www.bitcoinatm.com.

New Currency Accounts almost here

Imagine…
A hybrid personal finance platform that bridges old world banking and new world crypto.
A solution that actually works in favour of Cryptocurrency mass adoption while many of us still depend in various ways on traditional FIAT money…
Yes, it includes Multi Currency Accounts... with REAL debit cards (not prepaid cards)... AND multi-currency crypto wallets
— unified on one platform, manageable via desktop or mobile.
But why?
When the principle of Satoshi’s original post was against the credit bubbles and control of centralised banking: https://imgur.com/a/udm3a
Centralised vs Decentralised:
Andreas Antonopoulos recently described a necessary return to centralised banking services using cross-chain payment rails to ensure crypto payments are kept low, while bitcoin itself serves as a storage of value. Making each individual their own ‘central bank’ in control of their own financial wellbeing and mastery, while tapping in to various global services as desired.
Giving people the ability to choose the level of privacy, autonomy, and access they want based on their own unique situation, and the current stage of global blockchain adoption.
(One example of Andreas discussing off-chain banking is at at 18:20 on https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=AecPrwqjbGw)
And Wirex is working hard to deliver on that vision of hybrid crypto-friendly banking services that position each individual as their own ‘central bank’.
*Just a fantasy? *
No, just a matter of time as blockchain projects develop over the next few years.
We believe crypto-friendly banking serves the 2018 market to encourage mass adoption.
Today, we’re excited to announce early details of an entirely new fully-integrated crypto finance solution that will be available in Q1:
The old approach used by crypto-card providers until today required a complex web of suppliers and integration partners:
https://imgur.com/a/XMXQf
Wirex has now simplified the ecosystem by building on top of the W-PAY blockchain platform developed for our business partners and liquidity providers:
https://imgur.com/a/Q3dsi
We fully understand that this solution is not built for everyone here as many of you are very well versed in the world of cryptos and know how to store and spend your crypto like a pro.
However, many others in the community share our belief in achieving mass adoption of cryptos.
In our minds, the best way to help implement mass adoption is to make navigating through the crypto space as user friendly as possible and we believe the best way to do this is to become the first global hybrid banking solution in support of cryptos.
Is this another ICO?
Thankfully no. Debit card and crypto banking ICOs have been done way too much recently.
As the very first bitcoin debit card and mobile app provider, building the systems and infrastructure for regulatory compliance and scalability has not been easy. Then our main card issuer had to restrict card accounts only to EU countries. Thousands of our customers around the world left without the convenience of our bitcoin-fundable debit card.
We had only just re-issued tens of thousands of cards at our expense due to a required change from MasterCard to VISA when new restrictions of EU-only were given to us. With new licensing agreements still in process we could no longer serve the majority of our cherished customers around the world — many who’ve been with us since the beginning!
Including noteable influencers in their own areas like Jeff Berwick (The Dollar Vigilante), Tijo (Arcane Bear), and more. Others who would prefer to remain anonymous. Due to new compliance, we can’t even call our old product a ‘bitcoin debit card’ as technically the card does not hold bitcoin, it holds fiat.
These same challenges are also being faced by our competitors, both the new ICO startups and the older copycat projects.
Today we believe we have achieved another industry first and important contribution to the community with the launch of a new Wirex crypto currency finance platform, including Virtual Cards, and contactless plastic cards coming soon. Old style prepaid payment cards funded by bitcoin exchange is old technology.
We believe mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies begins in a big way by mid-2018. And we appreciate all of the support as well as the pushback and challenge from the super-intelligent and committed crypto community. As investors, consumers, service providers and enthusiasts, we are witness to the paradigm shift from old fiat banking systems to a new world of blockchain tech.
Zero-Fee Bitcoin Transfers:
Off-chain transfers between customer accounts allows us to drop blockchain fees to zero for you and any friends, family or contacts who use a Wirex account. Our off-chain Segwit bitcoin addresses give the best of both worlds.
Private Keys:
Of course, we recommend holding your own private keys for your main store of crypto. We recommend running your own node and keeping all 150 gigs of the blockchain stored on a hard drive, or using something like a Nano Ledger hardware wallet. Only keep crypto on an exchange or 3rd party wallet account because you are either trading it, spending it, or sending it (as noted above: Wirex off-chain SegWit enabled wallet allows customer to customer transfers at zero blockchain fee).
Practical Crypto-Friendly Banking For Today’s Market:
Wirex is focused on providing the most practical crypto-friendly finance platform for everyday life. This means our products can be understood and used by people who are new to cryptocurrency. The passion at the Wirex office is all about bringing bitcoin to the mainstream. We want blockchain innovation to thrive. And hopefully you’ll enjoy the new bank account facilities too.
The new Wirex Account combines the familiarity of real banking services with the extra solutions and opportunities of multiple cryptocurrency wallets.
Multi-Crypto Wallets:
New wallets will be integrated. Dash and Litecoin first. Then others. As fast as we can.
Combined on one single seamless platform, you can now open a crypto friendly bank account and benefit from our real debit cards with no top up fees.
Support from the crypto community helps us reach the masses who are brand new to bitcoin with new educational programs and practical crypto financial management.
But we're not here to make a quick $30 million from ICO. We’re here to build a comprehensive blockchain finance platform for all. We're here for the 1,000,000 customer registrations who have used our old bitcoin wallet and debit card services over the past few years. Many who were put off due to compliance issues beyond our control, but issues that we take to heart and feel a lot of empathy for. Remember, we are crypto enthusiasts too and want to enjoy the same products that you do!
Mainstream adoption means higher cryptocurrency prices (BTD and HODL), greater innovations, lower cost services, better digital asset management, and who knows… we may find opportunity to do a worthwhile ICO in the future for something bigger and better than just crypto cards.
Join the Currency Account waitlist today and you’ll be front-of-line when we get final approval to open accounts from the compliance and developer departments.

Bitcoins Come to China

By Chen Huijing (陈慧晶) Issue 618, May 6, 2013 Market, page 17 Translated by Zhu Na Original article: [Chinese] http://www.eeo.com.cn/ens/2013/0509/243777.shtml
Within just one month, the value Cheng Hua’s (程华) Bitcoin holdings had increased nearly sixfold.
Bitcoin, an unofficial virtual currency that’s transferred digitally without an intermediate financial institution, saw its value soar from $46 to $230 between Mar 10 and April 10.
Cheng Hua was one of the first Chinese to trade the currency. In China, Bitcoin lovers like him call themselves “BTCers.”
Li Xiaolai (李笑来), who claims to have the largest collection of Bitcoins in China, describes his obsession saying, “Bitcoin is the most stunning and most subversive social experiment in history.”
Will Bitcoin start to challenge traditional currency? Or is this just a speculative bubble that will become the digital world’s “Tulip Mania”?
A Crisis and an Opportunity
If it weren’t for the banking crisis that hit Cyprus, Cheng Hua may have totally forgotten about the 2,000 Bitcoins that he and his friends bought two years ago.
On Mar 16, the Mediterranean island nation of about 1 million signed on for a 10 billion euro bailout from the EU and IMF. As part of the deal, Cyprus would raise 5.8 billion euro by levying a one-off 6.7 percent tax on bank deposits under 100,000 euro and 9.9 percent on higher deposits. Once the news circulated, people in Cyprus rushed to withdraw their money from banks.
During this time, downloads of online software for trading Bitcoin started to boom. Cypriots were very interested in a virtual currency with no central government control.
Jeff Berwick, founder of StockHouse.com and CEO of TDV Media, announced that he planned to open a Bitcoin ATM in Cyprus. He said that within just a few days, he received many orders for these special ATMs.
With the surge in demand, the price of Bitcoin against the U.S. dollar soared. On Mar 16, it was worth $47. By Apr 9, it broke through $200 and reached its highest point of $230. But it soon fell back to around $100.
“During this month of watching Bitcoin, I hardly got any sleep,” said a “BTCer” who just recently got interested in the field. “Between the time I closed my eyes and opened them again, the price had risen or dropped more than $10. It was very exciting.”
He’s considering selling his house so he can invest all his money in Bitcoin.
Cheng Hua was also shocked by the recent events. He found that the 5,000 yuan he invested in Bitcoin two years ago was now worth 40 times that amount.
Investment
Bitcoin was started in 2008 by an anonymous creator as an alternative to government controlled currency - much like gold. And like gold, Bitcoin is “mined” virtually. According to Wall Street Journal, people can mine Bitcoins with computers and special software by solving complicated mathematical problems. But since the process is so difficult, most just opt to buy it. New Bitcoins are made available to be mined when the network is updated, and the amount of new coins distributed will be halved every year until 2140 when the total number will be capped at 21 million.
In May 2011, Cheng Hua and his colleagues at a software company started to mine Bitcoin online. “At that time there weren’t many people mining, so it was easy,” he said. “In the beginning, we could dig up two or three Bitcoins per day. There were different mines as well as rankings. We joined one of them, and coins were allocated based on the contribution of miners’ calculation ability.”
Like many Bitcoin lovers, Cheng Hua and his team’s mining experience wasn’t very successful. The money they generated from selling Bitcoins was less than what they’d invested in the electronic infrastructure to mine. After half a year, they gave up. Luckily for Cheng, he held on to many of the coins.
Li Xiaolai (李笑来), founder of a major website, invested hundreds of thousands of yuan and suffered major losses, but persisted in the Bitcoin market. He continued to gain more by buying low and selling high. “In the end, I gained 2,100 Bitcoins using this method, which was far beyond my expectations,” Li said.
He says that Bitcoin is valuable because it ensures inviolability of private property through its decentralized peer-to-peer structure. To him, it provides a guarantee of freedom.
The Future Economy?
Bitcoin has come a long way in its short history. As of Mar 30, all Bitcoins that have been issued so far were together worth over $1 billion. And a series of Bitcoin-related industries have developed including Bitcoin exchanges, information websites and third-party payment services.
In the U.S., Bitcoin is already being used in daily life. According to an October 2012 report by BitPay, a company providing payment mediums for Bitcoin, over 1,000 merchants accepted payment with the currency through their system.
Though Bitcoin just started to take off in China this year, there are already more than 10 online stores on Taobao that accept the currency. And after the Ya’an earthquake hit, Bitcoin donations were accepted.
American economist Paul Krugman has come down hard on Bitcoins, saying they “derive their value, if any, purely from self-fulfilling prophecy, the belief that other people will accept them as payment.”
“BTCers” have a different view. Li says that Bitcoin does indeed have some shortcomings currently, but that’s because people dealing with the young currency have a mindset that’s accumulated after thousands of years of using traditional money. Volatility, he says, is natural in the beginning.
“I don’t see Bitcoin as speculation or an investment,” Li said. “For me, it’s a social practice. Gold doesn’t support currency. People’s trust supports currency. Bitcoin is the same. It has no intrinsic value. It’s gained trust from people on the internet voluntarily. This trust is more valuable than the forced trust traditional currency relies on.”
Cheng Hua holds the same view “Bitcoin is based on the principle of trust,” he says. “Maybe it will have bubble stages, but currency must go through these stages during development. The traditional legal currency also went through these stages in its emergence. The future economy in the virtual world is built on the basis of virtual currency. This is the value of Bitcoin.”

We need to find a new spokesperson

Amir Taaki seems to get tapped fairly regularly by the media as a 'creator' of bitcoin. Although he does a passable job of explaining what Bitcoin is and how it works, he comes across as completely non-credible and, in my opinion, is bad for what bitcoin is. He regularly spouts on and on about anarchy, looks like he hasn't showered in years and honestly, makes us look bad. See here: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=amir+taaki
I don't know how we would go about finding a better spoken, more professional spokesperson but if we want to be taken seriously in business circles, we need someone better to do these interviews. My suggestions would include:
EDIT: I have nothing against Anarcho-Capitalism, but I don't believe that spouting on about it on well respected business programmes is going to help our cause in any way

World's First Bitcoin ATM in Cyprus?

AN ENTREPRENEUR has announced he is keen to introduce in Cyprus the world’s first ATM for virtual currency, bitcoin, which is not regulated by a central bank but has instead been growing via its online peer-to-peer community.
Jeff Berwick, founder of StockHouse.com and CEO of TDV Media said on his blog on dollarvigilante.com that he plans to set up the world’s first Bitcoin ATM in Cyprus to enable people to deposit flat currency into it and get bitcoins in their account, as well as put bitcoins in their account and get flat currency back.
Bitcoin, which was designed and implemented by a mysterious programmer known by the pseudonym of “Satoshi Nakatomo,” is based on a peer-to-peer network similar to the BitTorrent protocol for sharing files over the internet, the European Central Bank (ECB)has said in an October 2012 report on virtual currency schemes.
It can be used as currency for a number of transactions, from internet services and online services to buying clothes, electronic goods, while a small number of restaurants, hotels and retail stores across the world do accept bitcoins.
With restrictions likely in place when the banks do reopen, Berwick said he “began pondering what tangible solutions there (were) to bank holidays and bank runs.”
“If these people had simply bought bitcoins with their savings, not only would they currently have 100 per cent access to their funds, but also they would have enjoyed a parabolic move to the upside over past months,” Berwick said.
The currency is not pegged, with supply and demand determining the exchange rate. People need to download a free and open-source software to start using bitcoins that can be purchased using a currency, and are then stored in a digital wallet on users’ computers or via online services. Transactions are not restricted by a Central Bank, are faster, and cheaper or free. Although users are drawn to the currency for transaction privacy and anonymity, the system has been criticised for being vulnerable to cyberattacks or for being attractive as an alternative currency to fund illegal activities.
The ECB said in its report that it considered bitcoin “as a high-risk system for its users from a financial perspective” citing a number of issues that “raise serious concerns regarding the legal status and security of the system, as well as the finality and irrevocability of the transactions, in a system which is not subject to any public oversight”.
On the other hand, Berwick said that individuals have suffered “through the confiscation and devaluation of their savings through techniques like taxes, levies and inflation” by the ECB, the International Monetary Fund, and the German Federal Government.
“I am convinced bitcoin will be the currency of the future… and all the attacks on it by governments and central banks shows they know it,” Berwick said.
