Xapo announces their newly formed advisory board with former Visa founder, former Citibank chairman and former Secretary of the Treasury all joining

Today Xapo is proud to announce the formation of its advisory board with three visionary leaders, Dee Hock, John Reed and Lawrence H. Summers

Dee Hock, founder of Visa went on to say, "Bitcoin represents not only the future of payments but also the future of governance. We live in the 21st century but are still using command and control organizational structures from the 16th century. Bitcoin is one of the best examples of how a decentralized, peer-to-peer organization can solve problems that these dated organizations cannot. Like the Internet, Bitcoin is not owned or controlled by any one entity, so it presents incredible opportunities for new levels of efficiency and transparency in financial transactions.”

You couldn't ask for a better recommendation for a payment system!

Roger Ver offers $1,000,000 bounty for anyone who can prove he did sign the disputed contract

http://cointelegraph.com/news/114376/roger-ver-i-will-offer-a-1000000-bounty-to-anyone-who-can-prove-i-signed-that-contract

This whole thing really does make me question OKCoin's business practices. As a precaution I would be sure to pull any coins from the exchange to a wallet that you own the private keys. If most of these allegations are true then we could be looking down a bad road ahead for their users.

Dispute between Roger Ver and OKCoin spreads into the public

One of the most recognizable bitcoin-related domain names is at the heart of a dispute between Chinese bitcoin exchange OKCoin and bitcoin entrepreneur Roger Ver.

While I hate to see such drama breaking out this has given me plenty of good reading over on /r/bitcoin over the weekend.

Privacy group ranks popular bitcoin wallets on their privacy features

The Open Bitcoin Privacy Project (OBPP), has released a report on 10 leading Bitcoin wallets, setting standards for privacy that they argue are much needed in the space. The Bitcoin wallets in the report include Coinbase, Blockchain.info, Mycelium, Darkwallet, Airbitz, Armory, Electrum, Bitcoin Wallet and Multibit Classic.

I've grown very fond of recommending Airbitz for new users so I was glad to see they were included in the report.

What wallet are you currently using?

I'm very interested to see what 21 will be bringing to the table. I can definitely see the value proposition for their new chip and look forward to seeing what uses they can find.

Canadian University Adds Bitcoin ATMs to Bookstore Locations

British Columbia's Simon Fraser University (SFU) announced today that its campus bookstore would begin accepting bitcoin payments starting 26th May.

Great news for BC residents and the community at large. I think BTMs will be key for adoption as they offer the least friction in joining. Simply put in cash and get your bitcoin back.

Happy Pizza Day!

It was 5 years ago today that the first transaction using bitcoin occurred when a pizza was bought for 10,000BTC. How are you spending 🍕 day?

Want a bipartisan President?

When it comes to personal liberties Rand Paul isn't afraid to go against the grain of his party's politics. In fact he's using bipartisan support to hold the Senate from voting to move forward with anything that would reauthorize the Patriot Act. To me this shows Rand's character and willingness to stand when liberty is in question. Bravo.
Rand Paul relinquished the Senate floor late Wednesday night after 10-and-a-half hours of lambasting the government surveillance programs — capitalizing on a sleepy day in the Senate to highlight his opposition to key parts of the PATRIOT Act that expire at the end of the month. Wearing dark green sneakers in apparent preparation to go deep into...

DerbyJackpot.com told Bitcoin Magazine they chose to accept bitcoin due to frequent requests from customers. The integration comes during the height of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing season, one of the most active times of the year for the sport. DerbyJackpot.com users will be able to bet bitcoin on races at the Preakness this weekend, the Belmont Stakes on June 6, and hundreds of other horse races.

Introduction
I graduated college from Eastern Kentucky University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts and am working to finish some needed prerequisites to enter their Master's of Business Administration program. I love to meet new friends and can't wait to meet you!  (That is my sign for you to add me to your circles so we can become friends!)

Possible Circles I Belong To:
  • Android
  • Politics (Extremely Conservative)
  • University of Kentucky Sports (mainly basketball)
  • Cincinnati Reds
  • Animal Lover
  • Tau Kappa Epsilon (Mu-Beta Chapter)
Those are just some of my interests that came to mind while trying to write this but don't limit me to those.  I enjoy discussing all kinds of new and interesting topics so feel free to share away.

I am in a relationship with +Kati Parker. Kati is one of the most caring, down to Earth people I know and I'm very lucky to call her mine.

Enough about me, how are you today?

I've had mixed experiences with this location. My most recent experience was poor enough that it led me to post this review. I had went through the drive thru and attempted to use a gift card that had $10 on it. Since $10 wouldn't cover the full balance they refused to use it at all. I've then passed her my debit card to pay for the order but she kept insisting that was the card that had just declined. Once I had paid and they passed me my drinks I was greeted with half filled cups. I'm currently still pulled up waiting for them to bring my food. Since its usually good I'll go ahead and assume but today's service was subpar.

I had stopped across the street to do banking and noticed this Valvoline Instant Oil. I stopped in and they had me ready to leave in 15 minutes plus I never had to leave my car.

I really enjoyed my lunch here. The service was good and the food was delicious. The place was easy to find because as we pulled up you could see, and smell, the smoke from them cooking. It only added to the anticipation of the meal we were about to have. The interior wasn't what I was really expecting though I don't judge a BBQ place by it's interior work. I was greeted by very friendly workers who were very upbeat and helpful. After a moment of reviewing the options I decided on the large shredded pork sandwich. The sandwich was a good size helping and wasn't with any sauce though they do have sauces at the table. The meat was top notch and very high quality. My only knock would be that I enjoy a slightly drier meat and this was a little more moist than my usual preference but nothing to complain about. The sides were also very good and they provide free refills on drinks. I would easily recommend giving their food a try. I doubt you'll be disappointed.
