Juan Llanos and Bruce Fenton (me) just gave the first major Bitcoin speech /session in Dubai

It was good -- a crowd gathered in the financial district -- we spoke for about an hour -- each separately --- then together we answered questions fireside chat style for about an hour and a half.
It was a good group- lots of interest -- we tried to cover a lot of ground. Juan started and covered the basics through some more advanced concepts....then I covered what the tech means overall, how the invention itself will potentially impact the world as well as a Wall St and Mid East point of view (I come from Wall St and live in the Mid East part of the year)
Overall the region is maybe one year behind the US in terms of adoption and knowledge....and that's a big year.
The crowd showed lots of interest. It's still early stage and basic.
If you are around a Dubai tomorrow please check out cointalks.me -- we will be doing part two with a few other folks in the evening.
Also, if interested in Dubai checkout Dubai Bitcoin Conference at DubaiBitcoinConference.com for the larger conference we will hold in December with Roger Ver, Vitalik Buterin, Nic Carrey, Erik Voorhees and many other really good speakers and guests.

Juan Llanos from bitreserve predicted, in no uncertain terms, that wallet providers will have to do aml/ kyc compliance

Im here at Melbourne Inside Bitcoins conference where Juan Llanos from bitreserve predicted, in no uncertain terms, that wallet providers will have to do aml/ kyc compliance of all users. Inc mycellium and blockchain.info.
Juan was at a meeting with Bitpay, Coinbase, Barry Silbert, Circle at the US treasury department (specifically the AML/ anti-terrorist unit) FAFT?(didnt catch the full name)
Edit: wallet provider = web or mobile service that controls a private key (inc multisig)

Why the US government wants to bring cryptocurrency out of the shadows

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 71%.
A US government request to trawl through the personal data of millions of users of the cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase signals the start of an effort to pull digital currencies like bitcoin into the mainstream, experts have said.
In the summons, the IRS said that all of Coinbase's users in that period "Have not been or may not be complying with US internal revenue laws".
Several experts in cryptocurrency said that the IRS was on a "Fishing expedition", and pointed out that it followed an excoriating report by the US treasury's inspector-general for taxation which said the IRS was not doing enough to regulate and investigate cryptocurrencies.
In a statement, Coinbase said: "Although Coinbase's general practice is to cooperate with properly targeted law enforcement inquiries, we are extremely concerned with the indiscriminate breadth of the government's request."
Others said that while they felt Coinbase was right to seek to narrow the scope of the request, some change was needed to bring bitcoin and its ilk out of the dark and into the world of mainstream finance.
Juan Llanos, an advisor in financial technology regulation and compliance, said he was seeing a lot of anger within the cryptocurrency industry at the IRS's move, but also some schadenfreude from the more anarchistic parts of bitcoin's user base.

With the recent subpoenas, this is the conference we should be talking about. Tomorrow, Wednesday the 14th in NYC.

2 weeks ago, the Inside Bitcoin conference made a big splash in the media and the bitcoin community. This Wednesday there is another bitcoin conference that is smaller but might be the start of something very important to the future of bitcoin.
This Wednesday, The National Money Transmitter's Association led by David Landsman is holding the Virtual Currencies Compliance Conference Association. The NMTA is a trade organization for money transfer businesses - offering advice and training dealing with regulatory and practical problems faced by money service businesses. Keeping bank accounts open, facing subpoenas, and being audited for AML compliance are things those of us in the bitcoin community are new to, and it sometimes seems like targeted harassment, but these are problems faced by the entire MSB industry that bitcoin has been lumped into.
According to Landsman "The goal of the NMTA is to uphold the image of the money transfer industry and improve the practice of AML compliance among money transmitters. So we are looking forward to welcoming a new population of money transmitters - the Bitcoin operators who wish to operate as a business - and we look forward to bringing them up to speed on regulatory matters at the conference."
There are some familiar faces from the bitcoin world speaking at the conference, including Marco Santori who is the Chairman of The Bitcoin Foundations Regulatory Affairs committee. Juan Llanos is also speaking, an experienced AML and compliance professional who has been a valuable and generous resource for the bitcoin entrepreneur community here in New York City.
The other speakers are experienced compliance professionals that will be speaking from an MSB/MTB perspective and trying to explain and make clearer how the legislation can apply to bitcoin, and how we can legally operate our businesses in the US.
So the conference should be very informative from a legal perspective, but even more interesting to me is Mr. Landsman's personal mission to push for a Federal money transmitter license. The struggle of dealing with a web of state licenses is probably the single hardest and most expensive obstacle for creating any kind of nationwide bitcoin business. This conference could be the beginning of an alliance between bitcoin and money transfer businesses, especially those that are smaller and hurt by the heavy licensing burden that keeps the advantage on huge operators like Western Union and Moneygram.
Here is the link to the conference. It is this Wednesday, that's TOMORROW, in New York City. nmta.us/site/

Entrevistei Juan Llanos sobre Bitlicense

Juan Llanos esteve no Brasil em julho para falar sobre regulamentação do dinheiro digital em um evento do escritório de advocacia Pinheiro Neto.
Em abril, quando esteve em Madri, tive a oportunidade de entrevistá-lo e, entre vários tópicos, conversamos sobre a Bitlicense, o que é e qual o impacto no empreendorismo em Bitcoin.
Gostaria de disponibilizar, para o público brasileiro, esse trecho da entrevista legendado em português. Agradecimentos especiais a Marcelo Miranda por me pedir para lhe fazer esta pergunta: “Juan, qual é a sua opinião sobre a última revisão da BitLicense em Nova Iorque e se você acredita que outros estados dos Estados Unidos vão adotá-la?”
Esta é a parte da entrevista que mais destaque merece, pois a partir de então várias empresas deixaram de atender a clientes em Nova York, devido aos custos impeditivos da Bitlicense: LocalBitcoins, Bitfinex, BTCGuild, Genesis Mining, Kraken, Poloniex e várias outras.
Veja o vídeo de 11 minutos e a transcrição da entrevista em: Bitcoin Nos Negócios
