In a statement released late on Wednesday, Coinbase announced it had obtained a broker-deal license in a bid to become a fully SEC-regulated broker dealer.

Apps like Facebook, Twitter, and other social media apps could use this to track your network activity without your knowledge. Obviously, this is a serious privacy bug. Read the rest of this post »

Many are sceptical that bitcoin will become a legitimate currency in real life. But PayPal’s chief financial officer is optimistic that bitcoin will become the currency of the future.
