Virtual Currencies

Various attempts to foster online payment systems and currencies have been attempted since the advent of the public Internet, however, the rise of what might be called 'crypto currencies', due to the role encryption plays, has come to the forefront. At present, a key issue with crypto currencies is they bypass a bank or central repository structure, utilizing distributed peer-to-peer computing power.  Virtual crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, and a recent attempt to resurrect a gold backed e-currency have many wondering what they are, will they succeed, what are the public policy, taxation, security, and legal implications.

Scroll down the page to see numerous linked news articles, discussion-opinion pieces, academic-technical writings that you may find of interest surrounding the political, security, technical aspects of virtual currencies-payment systems. 
Also included, are items pertaining to monetary policy, debt issues, and elimination of cash.

Virtual Currencies in Virtual World Environments

During the U.S. Senate hearing on 'The Present and Future Impact of Virtual Currency,' during the panel 1 discussion, 
National Security and International Trade and Finance Subcommittee Chairman Mark Warner mentioned an appearance he had made in the Virtual World Second Life. These are images of his Avatar during that appearance, as well as Senator Warner at his computer, enabling him to move his avatar and communicate by voice to the in-world audience.


Virtual Worlds have experimented with differing forms of virtual currency, for example, The Linden Dollar in the virtual world Second Life.
Questions now arising with emerging virtual currencies, such as taxability, depositor safety, money laundering, etc., came to the forefront as well.
These are images of avatars in the virtual world Second Life attending an ongoing series called
Metanomics, led by Cornell University Professor Robert Bloomfield. The topic for this session was termed the 'Second Life Banking Crisis,' and featured the Chief Executive of Denmark domiciled Saxo Bank.
