Circle Payments through iMessage

Blockchain company Circle revealed its new project that allows users to send payments through Apple’s iMessage.
These available Circle Payments are in dollars, euros, pound and bitcoins.
The project began in June when Apple announced that it would open to third-party developers for iMessage.
“We decided to jump on it. We had been planning to build out a model for app-less payments using Circle that would work in all the places people communicate and interact,” explained Circle co-founder Jeremy Allaire. 
Allowing payments available on the most used app worldwide could help it have the largest transaction volume and become a payment platform that not only leverages the bitcoin blockchain.
“This is going to be a big part of the future, it’s all tied into the how do we make money work, the way the Internet works. We talk about photos and content and the way we do that is through social messaging, that is the core medium of the Internet for a lot of people”.
Thanks to this integration, people who download the app can open iMessage and enter into Circle by clicking on a new icon built into the chat app.
“One of the things that’s really cool about using iMessage as the container is it’s an SMS app, so it allows you to send the messages to any contact that uses any SMS compatible device,” explained Allaire.

How to study with Bitcoin payments

Pay with Bitcoin at Cevro University in Prague

Bitcoin at University

From now on students from all around the world can pay with bitcoin for their university – if they decide to move in Prague.
In fact, the CEVRO Institute University in Prague has announced that it will accept bitcoin among their allowed methods of payment.
Recently the Greek University of Nicosia, Draper University of California, the University of Cumbria and King’s College in the UK started to accept the cryptocurrency. 

Why in Prague

The University rector Josef Šíma explained to Cointelegraph:
“As a first school in the Czech Republic we have opened unique Oxford style PPE (Philosophy, Politics, Economics) taught by a team of Czech and foreign professors in English and accepted many foreign students from US and Canada to India and China. One of them asked about the possibility to pay his tuition in bitcoin. And because we have hosted in past several lectures and conferences about this exciting new phenomenon and as a part of the PPE, and we will have courses dealing with alternative monetary schemes, free banking and cryptocurrencies, it was a really easy decision.”
The Prague University, in fact, was the first university to create the PPE class to allow its students to study the connections between Bitcoin and philosophy, politics and economy. 
Fees in bitcoin will be calculated based on the current bitcoin price.

Bitcoin worldwide recognition

The acceptance of bitcoin by public institutions could be an important step for the recognition and the increase in popularity of Bitcoin.
We do not want merely to teach about the beauty of markets, modern technologies and innovation, we want to be innovators ourselves! We want to actively use most modern technologies and offer our students new opportunities which technologies made available” Šíma explained.

Hitachi is studying the Blockchain

Some days ago the Japanese company Hitachi announced that it will open a research laboratory in the US that will study the blockchain ledger and its possible applications.
The lab will partner with Hitachi technology innovation division and it will be opened next month in Santa Clara, California.

Hitachi wants to use the research laboratory to work on some projects for its customer base.

In a press release, Hitachi explained:

“By establishing the Financial Innovation Laboratory in the Silicon Valley, Hitachi will accelerate research [and] development of blockchain technology, collaborative creation with customers, and development of solutions to support business innovation in financial institutions.”


Hitachi partners with Hyperledger

This statement follows a previous company’s news related to the blockchain: in fact, in February Hitachi joined the Hyperledger Project, an advaced blockchain technology that aims at “identifying and addressing important features for a cross-industry open standard for distributed ledgers that can transform the way business transactions are conducted globally.”

The Hyperledger Project is a Linux Foundation collaborative project that stars some of the most important companies in the world, including IBM, J.P. Morgan, Fujitsu and many more.
