A Dutch court classifies Bitcoin as a “transferable value” after the court ruled in favour of a plaintiff who was owed 0.591 Bitcoins (BTC), according to a court document published March 20.
The claim was filed in a Dutch court by Mr. J.W. de Vries on 2 February 2018 against Koinz Trading BV, a non-public company, which was previously ordered by a lower court of Midden-Nederland to pay mining proceeds in the amount of 0.591 BTC owed to the petitioner, or a penalty payment up to a €10,000 maximum.
As a consequence of the company’s failure to comply with its obligations to pay the required volume in BTC, the court ordered that the company either pay up or be declared insolvent.
The court judgement explicitly states that Bitcoin demonstrates all the characteristics of a “property right”, and hence a claim to transfer BTC under property rights is legitimate.

Will Be World’s Leading Currency in 10 Years: Square Jack Dorsey
One of Silicon Valley’s most revered entrepreneurs is going all in on Bitcoin.
Square CEO Jack Dorsey, who is in London this week promoting the digital firm, told The Times that he believes Bitcoin could become the world’s leading within a decade — or perhaps even sooner. “The world ultimately will have a single currency, the internet will have a single currency. I personally believe that it will be bitcoin,” Dorsey said, adding that it would occur “probably over ten years, but it could go faster”. Square has added support for simple Bitcoin into the firm’s popular App, and Dorsey has said that the company intends to add more Bitcoin-related functionality in the future.
This has led to speculation that Square may begin handling Bitcoin payments in its merchant processing software or perhaps even launch a full-fledged .
Dorsey — who also leads social media giant — conceded that Bitcoin in its present state of development is not an “effective currency,” citing slow confirmation times and high transaction fees (although fees are currently at a relative low point). Nevertheless, he expressed optimism about technologies that will make Bitcoin payments more user-friendly and efficient in the near future. “It’s slow and it’s costly, but as more and more people have it, those things go away. There are newer that build off of and make it more approachable,” he said, it “does not have the capabilities right now to become an effective currency”. One of those technologies, presumably, is the Lightning Network (LN), a second-layer scaling solution that allows users to open off-blockchain payment channels and execute near-instant transactions with virtually no fees.
Dorsey, notably, recently invested in Lightning Labs one of the leading development teams focused on programming LN software. Earlier this month, Lightning Labs released lnd 0.4-beta, which is the first LN implementation to receive a beta release. ----------------
Walmart explains in the filing that online shopping has created shipping challenges for retailers, particularly with regard to perishable products requiring temperature control, thus necessitating further innovation.
Walmart writes in the application: "These online customers many times seek to purchase items that may require a controlled environment and further seek to have greater security in the shipping packaging that the items are shipped in." The application states that the blockchain component will be encrypted into the device, and will have "key addresses along the chain of [the package's] custody, including hashing with a seller private key address, a courier private key address and a buyer private key address." Do you think blockchain technology can help Walmart achieve a more efficient shipment system?

Official Statement from the SEC: "If a platform offers trading of digital assets that are securities and operates as an 'exchange,' as defined by the federal securities laws, then the platform must register with the SEC as a national securities exchange or be exempt from registration." "The SEC staff has concerns that many online trading platforms appear to investors as SEC-registered and regulated marketplaces when they are not. Many platforms refer to themselves as "exchanges," which can give the misimpression to investors that they are regulated or meet the regulatory standards of a national securities exchange."
