VISA IS SWITCHING TO BIT-COIN!!!

The HUGE news at the moment is that Visa Europe is testing use Bit-Coin for remittances. or so the Bit-Con "news sites" are putting it.
Just to be precise: Visa Europe Collab apparently is a project by Visa Europe that gives some VC money to fintech startups, which it calls "partners". Epiphyte, the company that is going to do the testing above, claims to be one of those startups.
But Epiphyte is not on Visa Europe Collab's list of partners. Could it be that Epiphyte is just a sub-project of one of the partners listed there, such as Accelerator Academy or Digital Catapult?

Only Bitcoin can reach them!

For the people of the Ukraine, time is running out. Their banking system is collapsing. Their currency is crashing. People need food, medical aid and supplies. They may be under foreign invasion!
The people of the Ukraine need us. They have been cut off from the world. Only Bitcoin can reach them.
This is the right moment to prove that Bitcoin can do what we have always promised – to protect freedom.
I am writing from a Bitcoin Hackathon in Tel Aviv. We have stopped what we are doing to help this cause. We have managed to reach out to the protesters on the ground and, in collaboration with Gary Kasparov and the Human Rights Foundation, are identifying where the funds are needed most.
We have created a multi-sig wallet to accept donations: 39wbuEjp3mfFAB3bTjmkFB69XAmKYRMq5i
The keys are held by three trusted members of our community:
More information, updates and the opportunity to donate can be found at bit-cause.org
We hope that the global Bitcoin community joins us.
Donate. Create Memes. Viralize.
Together, we will show the world what Bitcoin can do!
That address again: 39wbuEjp3mfFAB3bTjmkFB69XAmKYRMq5i

A quote from 'Cryptonomicon'

Randy figures there’s no better time to ask this question. And because he’s known Avi longer than anyone else, he’s the only one who can get away with asking it. “Do we really want to be involved with these people?” he says. “Is this what Epiphyte Corp. is for? Is this what we are for?”
Avi heaves a big sigh and thinks about it for a while. Beryl looks at him searchingly; Eb and John and Tom study their shoes, or search the triple-canopy jungle for exotic avians, while listening intently.
“You know, back in the forty-niner days, every gold mining town in California had a nerd with a scale,” Avi says. “The assayer. He sat in an office all day. Scary-looking rednecks came in with pouches of gold dust. The nerd weighed them, checked them for purity, told them what the stuff was worth. Basically, the assayer’s scale was the exchange point—e where this mineral, this dirt from the ground, became money that would be recognized as such in any bank or marketplace in the world, from San Francisco to London to Beijing. Because of the nerd’s special knowledge, he could put his imprimatur on dirt and make it money. Just like we have the power to turn bits into money.
“Now, a lot of the people the nerd dealt with were incredibly bad guys. Peg house habitues. Escaped convicts from all over the world. Psychotic gunslingers. People who owned slaves and massacred Indians. I’ll bet that the first day, or week, or month, or year, that the nerd moved to the gold-mining town and hung out his shingle, he was probably scared shitless. He probably had moral qualms too—very legitimate ones, perhaps,” Avi adds, giving Randy a sidelong glance. “Some of those pioneering nerds probably gave up and went back East. But y’know what? In a surprisingly short period of time, everything became pretty damn civilized, and the towns filled up with churches and schools and universities, and the sort of howling maniacs who got there first were all assimilated or driven out or thrown into prison, and the nerds had boulevards and opera houses named after them. Now, is the analogy clear?”
(from "Cryptonomicon" by Neal Stephenson)
This book was suggested somewhere in cryptoland recently. I just thought this passage reflects how cryptocurrencies work in it's infancy and stages to maturity. The whole legal/not-legal... dark market... discussions.
By the way, this was written in 1999, before Bitcoin. I believe it might have inspired Satoshi in some way. It's a good read, I recommend it to nerds and crypto enthusiasts.

UK regulator FCA testing Bitcoin remittances

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 66%.
London based blockchain remittance specialist Epiphyte will be working with the UK regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, to test cryptocurrency.
Epiphyte will be working within the FCA's sandbox, exploring ways to provide cheaper and more efficient cross-border payment services using blockchain systems such as Bitcoin.
Under the sandbox testing, Epiphyte will be providing an alternative clearing and settlement mechanism to banking systems such as SWIFT, according to a statement.
Edan Yago, CEO of Epiphyte, said: "In practice it will be FCA regulated. But it's regulated as part of the sandbox; so it will be authorised."
"Epiphyte has a track record of working on remittance solutions with large financial institutions, notably Visa and BBVA."The work that we did with Visa we have also done with a number of other banks - the only one that is public right now is BBVA. "It's the same technological platform that allows you to transfer funds over Bitcoin and Ethereum and really any blockchain system."
Yago said Epiphyte can leverage the security of blockchain, and combine this with scale and high transaction speed.
