NPR aired a Morning Edition segment with host Cyrus Farivar (@cfarivar) in which Jerry Brito (@JerryBrito) was interviewed about online gambling and Bitcoin. Excerpt:
"The U.S. Justice Department has made it very clear you can’t just open an offshore casino online and start taking bets using actual money from the United States. But last year a couple of entrepreneurs asked themselves ‘what if you were only betting with Bitcoin?’." - "Noone knows if bitcoin is money, a financial instrument, or something else." - "[Bryon Micon of SealsWithClubs.eu] says it might be tough for the feds to regulate what is just a piece of computer code and not real money."
