Cryptocurrencies are essentially just digital money, digital tools of exchange that use cryptography and the aforementioned blockchain technology to facilitate secure and anonymous transactions. There had been several iterations of cryptocurrency over the years, but Bitcoin truly thrust cryptocurrencies forward in the late 2000s. There are thousands of cryptocurrencies floating out on the market now, but Bitcoin is far and away the most popular.

Co-founder of Uber is Launching His Own Cryptocurrency: Garrett Camp, co-founder of Uber and founder of the accelerator/venture fund Expa, named the cryptocurrency “Eco”. Camp hopes the coin will be used as a global currency used in the transaction of everyday payments. 50% of the initial one trillion tokens it issues will be given to the first 1 billion users who sign up.

According to the European Central Bank’s 2015 “Virtual schemes – a further analysis” report, virtual currency is a digital representation of value, not issued by a central bank, credit institution or e-money institution, which, in some circumstances, can be used as an alternative to money.[12] In the previous report of October 2012, the virtual currency was defined as a type of unregulated, digital money, which is issued and usually controlled by its developers, and used and accepted among the members of a specific virtual community.[13]

As society become increasingly digital, financial services providers are looking to offer customers the same services to which they’re accustomed, but in a more efficient, secure, and cost effective way.

This danger exists in large part because grasping even the basics of blockchain technology remains daunting for non-specialists. In a nutshell, blockchains link together a global swarm of servers that hosts thousands of copies of the system’s transaction records. Server operators constantly monitor one another’s records, meaning that to steal money or otherwise alter the ledger, a hacker would have to compromise many machines across a vast network in one fell swoop. Even as the global banking system faces relentless cyberattacks, the more than $30 billion in value on Bitcoin’s blockchain has proven essentially immune to hacking.

Jeg vil anbefale, at du tager fat i en professionel. Specielt hvis der er tale om store beløb. Har du købt Bitcoins eller andet i spekulationsøjemed, så skal der betales skat. Min kommentar er dog ikke juridisk rådgivning, og du bør snakke med en professionel.

Transaktioner genomförs direkt mellan användare över nätverket utan att något finansiellt institut är inblandat. Den här typen av transaktioner innebär dock att det är omöjligt att reversera en transaktion. Bitcoin-klienten sänder transaktionen till noderna i dess omgivning som i sin tur propagerar den till resten av nätverket. Korrupta eller ogiltiga transaktioner nekas av ärliga klienter. Transaktioner är oftast gratis men en transaktionsavgift kan betalas för att noderna i nätverket ska prioritera just den transaktionen.[1]

It might be considered unsurprising that there in the internet age also exist currencies which exist solely online. There currently exist several such currencies and the question to be addressed in this thesis is what digital currencies are in a legal perspective. The definition used in the thesis of digital currencies include cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Litecoin and other altcoins, as well as other forms of digital currencies such as DigiCash, e-Gold and Liberty Dollars. The definition also includes game-currencies such as the Linden Dollar. Firstly, the inherent properties of a number of digital currencies are compared to the inherent qualities of traditional money. Digital currencies are then considered in relation to the Norwegian Central Bank Act of 24th Mai 1985 no. 28 (sentralbankloven) § 14, the Currency Control Act, No. 10 of 14 July 1950 (valutalova) § 8 and the Financial Contracts Act of 25 June 1999 nr. 46 (Finansavtaleloven) § 12 first paragraph litra d. The second is based on definitions in the Payment Services Directive (2007/64/EC), and the third is based on the E-Money Directive (2009/110/EC). Digital currencies do not fall under the regulation of either currencies, means of payment or e-money, with the exception of DigiCash which in its day might have been considered to be e-money. Based on my conclusions for these articles, it can be extrapolated whether the firms which issue or transmit digital currencies fall under the definitions in the Financial Activities Act of 10th June 1988 no. 40 (Finansieringsvirksomhetsloven) chapter 4 a, regarding currency trade, 4b regarding payment services and 4 c regarding e-money. It is also considered whether marketplaces for digital currencies fall under article 1-5 in the Financial Activities Act relating to credit institutions and the Payment Systems Act no. 95 of 17 December 1999. The above-mentioned articles do not apply to digital currencies and so the definition of financial instruments in article 2-2 of the Securities Trading Act of 29 June 2007 No. 75 (verdipapirhandelloven) is considered. The Act is based on directive 2004/39/EC on markets in financial instruments. Digital Currencies are generally not considered to be financial instruments, with the exception of e-gold which might be construed as a derivative. Lastly, it is considered whether marketplaces for digital currencies are considered investment firms in accordance with Article 2-3 of the Securities Trading act or whether they are to be considered regulated markets or stock exchanges in accordance with art. 3 in the Stock Exchange Act of 29th of june 2007 no. 74 (børsloven). The thesis ends with a de lege ferenda debate on whether the current regulation on digital currencies is sufficient and what regulations would be suitable. Despite digital currencies not being very prevalent and thus having a minimal affect on the ordinary economy, many different initiatives are being undertaken to create new digital currencies. This indicates that governmental bodies might have to address the issue at some point in time.

Förutom den höga volatiliteten så uppfyller bitcoin de formella krav som man kan ställa på en valuta. Givet att kursutvecklingen framöver blir mer stabil så skulle man kunna hävda att den uppfyller alla krav. Det man ska hålla extra koll på framåt är hur den juridiska statusen för kryptovalutor fortsätter att utvecklas. Givet att den klarnar så att kryptovalutor gradvis kan inkorporeras som en egen tillgångsklass kommer det också leda till ökad legitimitet och större förtroende för fenomenet i allmänhetens ögon.

Digitalni novac pojavio u devedesetim godinama prošlog stoljeća. Mnoge računalne igre imaju neki oblik digitalnog novca unutar igre.

Jag anser att vi inte längre får valuta för våra skattepengar. Går det i dagsläget att handla aktier för t ex bitcoin? Sedan så går det ju faktiskt att spela på valutakursen i sig, även om det nog är betydligt mindre lönsamt nu än för 5 år sedan.

  1. The founders of Ethereum state that Ether is not a currency as much as it is “crypto-fuel”, meaning it’s a token that has one main use – to pay for the Ethereum platform. This means that you probably won’t be able to buy stuff with Ether online. However you can still trade it and invest in it in hopes its price goes up.
