Doug Manchester to be Bahama Papa for US? – San Diego Reader

Posted: February 7, 2017 at 10:47 pm

The BahamasPress.com is an online news operation in the Bahamas. On December 27, it reported, “Lyford Cay resident Papa Doug Manchester is being tipped as the next U.S. Ambassador to the Bahamas under a Trump Administration.” (Lyford Cay is a gated community on New Providence Island, Bahamas, considered one of the most affluent and exclusive communities in the world.)

I cannot find that other media have followed this or whether BahamasPress.com covered it again. I phoned Manchester’s office and asked one of his assistants if he is in the running for ambassador to the Bahamas. She replied, “Not to my knowledge, no.” She quickly added, “I don’t want to discuss this with you” and hung up. I have not heard back from the Bahamas government.

Manchester is a multimillionaire real estate developer who once owned the San Diego Union-Tribune.

After Fidel Castro drove the American Mafia out of Cuba in the late 1950s and early 1960s, gangsters decided to make the Bahamas their next offshore gambling haven. Mob financier Meyer Lansky was the major planner. Casinos were set up in the Bahamas. But after the Bahamas got their freedom from Great Britain in 1973, the islands were not so friendly to mobsters, who moved their banking to the Cayman Islands.

The Bahamas were one of the early offshore banking havens. In 2009, when many nations were cracking down on offshore havens, Prime minister Hubert Ingraham said that banking secrecy was one of the pillars of the 50-year-old financial services sector, and there is no plan to change them. However, the Bahamas are not now considered one of the major bank-secrecy havens. Under certain circumstances, it will provide information to foreign governments.

Cryptocurrency Round-Up: PayPal Founder Sceptical of Bitcoin and Bitnet Receives $14.5m Funding

Posted: October 22, 2014 at 1:46 am

Bitcoin and other major cryptocurrency markets remain stable, as Bitnet secures Series A funding.(IBTimes UK)

The price of bitcoin has remained relatively stable over the past 24 hours, shifting by less than 1% in value since yesterday.

Most other major cryptocurrencies have followed in bitcoin’s lead, with litecoin, dogecoin and peercoin all moving by between 0% and 2%.

The biggest mover across all digital currency markets is uro, the “hybrid commodity token” that pegs its value to the fertilizer urea. Uro’s price jumped by 45% to take its market capitalisation up above $1.5 million for the first time since July.

The co-founder of PayPal, Peter Thiel has said that despite bitcoin being founded on the same set of ideas as PayPal, the two have developed in very different directions.

“Bitcoin is the opposite of PayPal, in the sense that it actually succeeded in creating a currency,” Thiel said in a talk at the Booth School of Business in Illinois.

“However, its payment system is lacking, and it is often used to make illegal transactions, such as to buy heroin. Until bitcoin is used to make more legal transactions, I am a bit sceptical.”

Thiel has previously described bitcoin as “badly lacking”, saying in a Reddit AMA (ask me anything) last month that he would become “more bullish” on bitcoin when the payment volume of bitcoin significantly increases.

Bitnet secures $14.5m Series A funding

Bitcoin payments processor Bitnet has raised $14.5m in a Series A funding round that it hopes will go some way to enticing major merchants into using its payments software.
