June 6, 2014

Bitcoin has proven itself as an established payments system, with some of the world's most influential people commenting on its utility and innovation. Stephen Colbert called it "gold for nerds," and Joe Rogan has been fascinated by the technology, having Andreas Antonopoulos on as a guest to the Joe Rogan Experience twice now.

Some political figures have expressed concerns over the currency's potential non-crime of "money laundering", but overall the sentiment has focused on the technology and its goundbreaking nature.

And so it's really no surprise that many companies have adopted bitcoin. Bitcoin has now surpassed Western Union in total transaction volume and looks set to pass PayPal this year.

Despite a year of detailed press coverage of bitcoin, tens of millions of dollars in capital investment, and a devoted userbase, eBay has been...

If you can't beat them, then join them. Big banks jumping on bitcoin bandwagon

Many major Wall Street banks are trying to understand bitcoin, the virtual currency that has gained interest in the last few years, and how it could change the global payment system, say industry experts.

“What we have learned is that many of the banks have individuals and teams now focused on getting to know bitcoin and how it impacts the business,” said Barry Silbert, founder and CEO of SecondMarket, which is working on creating a U.S.-based bitcoin exchange and is an investor in Bitcoin companies.

Silbert was speaking at a panel discussion at the MarketWatch Investing Insights event “Bitcoin: Boom and Bust” late Tuesday in New York.

Banks are trying to understand what a digital-currency world looks like from an infrastructure perspective, said Silbert.

Bitcoin is a decentralized virtual currency that has been trumpeted as a faster and cheaper alternative to existing payments systems and has attracted the interest of high-profile venture capitalists. Some even say it has the potential to be a widely used currency.
