Three New Artists to Add

New_Artists_A4BHello everyone – I’d like to welcome three more artists to the Art 4 Bitcoin list – John Lindh, Jon Masters and Stefania Nistoreanu. I wish them all well in their endeavours!

John Lindh’s focus is in photography. He is from Sweden and samples of his work can be found here.

Jon Masters is an American artist in New Orleans. Jon’s work focuses on surreal realistic landscapes and samples of his work can be found here.

Stefania Nistoreaunu is from Romania. Stefania paints abstract works that:

talk about the world of our subconscious that we are afraid to dive, but we need to visit them sometimes to know us fully.

Samples of Stefania’s work can be found here.

I have also put together a quick “how to” page for artists to follow and get themselves set up to accept bitcoin as well as other cyrptocurrencies.

As far as bitcoin is concerned it’s price is still holding against a torrent of criticism. The most recent being the fall of Mt. Gox. This may or may not have been due to something called “transaction malleability” and not due to an inherent flaw in the blockchain as some have suggested. The inevitable collapse that some though the Mt. Gox crisis would bring has not come to pass. At the time of this writing BCT is hovering around $450 USD although down from over $1000 months ago. One of the newer articles on the Mt. Gox debacle is from By Tim Hornyak, IDG News Service and can be found on the pcworld.com site. Here’s a quick quote:

Fewer than 400 bitcoins could have been stolen from the Mt. Gox Bitcoin exchange using so-called transaction malleability attacks, according to a Swiss study—far less than the hundreds of thousands of bitcoins the company reported.

The rest of the article is here – ‘Malleability’ attacks not to blame for Mt. Gox’s missing bitcoins.

More on bitcoin “misinformation” comes from Kyle Torpey and can be found on cryptocoinsnews.com  – Mark T. Williams’ Recent Bitcoin Article is Misinformation

Then there’s Fiat Leak – a totally fantastic site that tracks the movement of bitcoins from fiat currencies around the world. I watched this for a few minutes – there were upwards of 300 + Bitcoins that moved into China… where they are supposedly banned…  watch the world currencies flow into BTC in real time!

On a final note I highly recommend subscribing to Bill Still’s Youtube channel as he has some great insights into bitcoin and the other cyrypto’s.
