Bitcoin a Legitimate “Transferable Value”
A Mr. J W De Vries had previously filed a case against a non-public company called Koinz Trading BV because it owed him 0.591 BTC for mining. The company refused to pay and De Vries took it to court. The Dutch Court sided with De Vries and told Koinz Trading that unless it paid De Vries, it was going to be declared insolvent and shut down.
The reason this ruling is so important is because the court official declared Bitcoin legitimate and that it had transferable value. The court stated that the cryptocurrency had all the characteristics of a property right.
This ruling comes at a time when organizations like the G20 refuse to acknowledge that cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have value.
