This Note is available to members of Mercator Advisory Group’s Emerging Technologies Advisory Service. Please be advised that this Note is normally part of a research and advisory service that provides ongoing support throughout the year.

    While the Note represents significant analyst time invested, there is no means of our ascertaining if it will fully meet your specific intended purposes. Typically, these Notes form the basis for future discussions with our clients where we are able to fine-tune additional information that we have gathered in the construction of the series of Notes (or locate new information rapidly due to our exclusive focus on gathering information in the payments industry) for specific member needs.

    Unfortunately, in fairness to our paying members, we are not able to offer this level of support for a single Note purchase. We will, however, credit any Research Document purchase against the future purchase price of the service should you become a member within 30 days of purchasing the document.

    The price for individual Note purchases is $1450 per document.

Bitcoin Basics, Trends, Regulations, and Usage

Will virtual payments continue to evolve?

Bitcoin has received a lot of press lately, some good and some bad. The fact that this virtual platform and currency has been the subject of so much publicity may mean that it will survive in the long run despite short-term technical issues and possible long-term regulatory oversight. This Research Note discusses basic definitions, the history of this virtual currency, and the emerging trends and technologies impacting this form of payment.
