The Week In Bitcoin - Issue #95: 'Double GST' Being Removed In Australia, Ethereum Continues To 🚀 And Other News From The Week
By Alan Tsen • Issue #95 • View online
Having worked for many years on this, it’s great to finally see the Australian Government announce a date for the removal of ‘double GST’ on digital currency transactions. According to the budget announcement, ‘double GST’ will be removed effective 1/7/2017 🎉🎊 
However, it’s worth noting, we’re yet to see an exposure draft of the legislative changes 😮
Eth continues to climb in value 🚀🌙. This raises some interesting questions about what it might mean for the project. 
Also, bitcoin isn’t causing malware 🙄 It’s just a convenient way for hackers to get paid 😂
Also, check out’s latest product (forgot to add it to last week’s newsletter - oops 🙄). Not sure what I think of it yet 🤔

Let's Grab 🍻 At Consensus 2017
This year I’ll be joining the Australian delegation to Consensus 2017. 
So if you’re attending the conference or are located in NYC let’s grab a 🍻 🍸🍷 and talk chains (and other stuff)! 
To tee something up just reply to this email and I’ll drop it into my diary. I’m really looking forward to catching up with some of my awesome readers while I’m in NYC!
Also, keep an eye out for some Consensus specific content next week 👀. Don’t forget to follow me on the Twitters as I’m planning to Periscope some of the chats I’ll be having in around the conference 🎥
