This week in Bitcoin – Sep 9th, 2019

September 16, 2019


Hi, I’m Nate Martin from 99Bitcoins.com
and here’s what happened
this week in Bitcoin.
The US Securities and Exchange Commission
finally approved a limited ETF.
The Van Eck SolidX ETF will only allow
institutional investors to get Bitcoin exposure
via the traditional securities market, so a full ETF
tradable by the general public is still pending.
The Winkelvoss twins first proposed a Bitcoin ETF,
or Exchange Traded Fund in mid-2013.
Burger King fast-food franchises in Germany
will now accept Bitcoin for orders & deliveries.
Customers will have to pay
via the company’s new mobile app,
now available for Android and iOS.
It’s unclear whether Bitcoin will
also be accepted in the 600 physical
Burger King restaurants across Germany.
Apple is “watching cryptocurrency,”
according to an executive at the tech giant.
Apple Pay vice president Jennifer Bailey,
talking to CNN at a private event in San Francisco,
said that the company sees
potential in cryptocurrencies.
This is the first time Bailey has acknowledged Apple’s interest in cryptocurrency,
though it’s unclear what the
company’s intentions might be.
The Central Bank of The Netherlands decreed
that all firms which provide crypto services,
such as wallets or trading platforms,
must register by the 10th of January 2020.
Dutch firms which don’t
register will be shut down.
And finally, it was reported that 4 out of the 5
websites returned by a Google search for
Bitcoin QR code generators
are coin-stealing scams.
Always use a trusted wallet to
generate crypto address QR codes!
That’s what happened this week in Bitcoin.
See you next week.

    It is actually incorrect to say that Burger King accepts BTC because the card they allow you to use (BitPay) is working like a Debit Card where you sell your crypto for fiat at point of sale, the merchant does not get crypto at all. This is just a marketing gimmick.
