Why I believe we're on the cusp of the 3rd great Bitcoin bubble

We've recovered from the last crash
You might think it's a bit early (based on the time frame for the last recovery), but things are looking a lot different than in 2011. I would suggest its because the last bubble popped prematurely due to Mt. Gox's failure of a trading engine.
Interest in buying Bitcoins has gone up to its highest point since the last bubble.
There's a similar spike in general interest. Partly helped along by the Silk Road news.
The network is being used at the same rate as during the last bubble.
The Bitcoin ATM story (see below) is causing Bitcoin to trend in Canada on Google (was #1 for a bit). The $27 story (see below) will almost certainly cause a large spike worldwide in Google trends once they're updated up to yesterday.
Lots and lots of new businesses now accept Bitcoins
One legitimate criticism of Bitcoin last year was the lack of places to spend them. We basically just had Alpaca Socks, Reddit and Wordpress, we've grown a lot since then!
Charities and others are taking donations
The first Bitcoin I ever spent was to donate to Wikileaks. More and more places are setting up Bitcoin donation buttons, because why not?
The $27 story is going massively viral
I think the attention this story is getting took a lot of us by surprise. We're thinking "of course if you bought Bitcoins in 2009 you're rich" and it didn't make much of a splash. But to the rest of the world it's a very novel and interesting story.
The first Bitcoin ATM has been installed
Easier way for people acquire Bitcoins with cash. Lots of free publicity. More machines are on their way and will generate more and more news.
Institutional money is coming
Afraid with the price at $200 that it will be hard to find enough moms and pops to keep money coming in faster than miners are selling? Don't be, there are individuals out there with a net worth higher than the entire Bitcoin ecosystem.
Interesting new developments
Cool things that didn't exist before the last bubble (as far as I remember).
Governments are explicitly saying it's not illegal
More and more governments are either saying Bitcoins are legitimate currency, or releasing guidelines for exchanges to comply with anti-money-laundering laws.
New generation of exchanges
Mt. Gox's terrible trading engine was a huge factor in the last crash. They couldn't keep up with all the new interest.
This time around there are more exchanges in more countries, and not a single point of liquidity.

Tracing a "Bitcoin is saving the economy of [country]!" claim to its roots: Venezuela

Another excerpt, I'm sure you'll enjoy. I've linked the refs, the Reason article is bloody rabid. Probably won't bother with the fabulous Bitcoin fanfic since, the actual media are bad enough on this one.
Venezuelans are relying on Bitcoin to eat!
Periodically, there will be a rash of news stories claiming that Bitcoin has become popular in some country suffering economic problems, such as Venezuela, India or Argentina – because the word “Bitcoin” makes a headline catchy, even if there’s nothing to the story. This transmutes into claims that Bitcoin will definitely take over the world, any day now. Or in response to scepticism about Bitcoin, advocates will just answer “But, Venezuela!”
These always fall apart on closer examination. Venezuela is a typical example: all the coverage traces back to a story in Libertarian magazine Reason, fiercely advocating Bitcoin as a way to avert the spectre of socialism and regulation.[1] One of their interviewees had been arrested for stealing electricity to mine bitcoins, which the author describes as a “government crackdown” on “freedom” because “bitcoin mining is arguably the best possible use of electricity in Venezuela”.
A story in The Guardian in the wake of the Reason story appears to be where the rest of the press picked it up. It speaks of some Venezuelans relying on Bitcoin for “basic necessities,” and was based on interviews with a Bitcoin exchange owner, one of his employees and two of his customers.[2] The author had previously written of Argentina and bitcoin.[3]
These two questionably-founded stories were echoed and elaborated upon by the rest of the press, including – amongst many others – the Washington Post claiming that Bitcoin mining is “big business” in Venezuela,[4] the New York Times that Bitcoin has “gained prominence” because of Venezuela[5] or BBC News repeating claims from a Bitcoin boosterism blog[6] – all of this being factoids repeated in a media game of “telephone.”
The Venezuelan volume on LocalBitcoins (a site for arranging person-to-person Bitcoin trades) at the time was on the order of 300-400 BTC/week, which isn't nothing but is negligible in the context of a whole country, and tracked fairly closely with LocalBitcoins usage in other countries.

Does Charlie Lee speak for Coinbase?

I noticed that Charlie Lee (Director of Engineering at Coinbase) is quite biased and vocal lately regarding Bitcoin scaling. IMO, regularly crossing the boundaries of professionalism with his tweets to push SegWit for Litecoin at all costs. Conflict of interest?

Assuming Coinbase's strategy is to be coin agnostic ("Coinbase is a digital currency wallet and platform"), I am asking the CEO bdarmstrong, if Charlie presents Coinbase's official stance that a Bitcoin based on BU with overwhelming global hashrate is considered to be an altcoin? Or does Coinbase follow the bitcoin definition of the Winkelvoss brothers in their ETF proposal, which states (p. 19):

Gemini Exchange and the Custodian will elect to support the Bitcoin Network with the greatest cumulative computational difficulty in order to engage in bitcoin transactions and the valuation of bitcoin.

Bitcoin ETF has been approved

Everybody had their fingers crossed for the Winkelvoss twins to get their ETF approved. We were obviously disappointed because we all knew that an ETF which tracks the price of bitcoin made available to a massive investment audience would have had a massive push on the price to the upside.
Well guess what? The next best thing just happened and most people are missing it.
The UK's largest investment broker has just brought an ETN to market. Its an exchange traded note, and for all intents and purposes, its the same thing that the Winkelvoss twins were trying to get approved on the American markets.
This investment broker has approximately $100 billion in client funds. This is huge!

Why is the COIN ETF under re-review by SEC?

Does anyone know on what basis BATS sought reconsideration of the rejection of the Bitcoin ETF? We know it was BATS and not the Winkelvoss twins who sought the re-review. Being that the re-review was granted BATS must have put forth something for the SEC to consider.

Bitcoin May Go Boom: A Guide to This Week's Big SEC Decision

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 73%.
What's the SEC decision?The agency must decide if the BATS stock exchange can change its rules to offer a bitcoin ETF, which would let people buy bitcoin like a common stock.
The ETF-called the Winklevoss Bitcoin Trust ETF-is the creation of the Winklevoss brothers, who once fought Mark Zuckerberg for control of Facebook, and now own a large stock of bitcoins.
While there are plenty of places to buy bitcoin, many investment funds can only hold assets that meet certain regulatory standards-such as approval from the SEC. If the agency approves the ETF application, money managers who want to include bitcoin in their portfolio are likely to jump in.
If the SEC approves the Bats rule change, all manner of American muppet retail investors can yolo into Bitcoin via a regulated ETF. The pool of eligible money that can easily obtain exposure to Bitcoin will dramatically rise.
According to Estes, the SEC may worry the agency's approval of an ETF could lead to a bubble inflated by bitcoin novices-a bubble that could then pop.
As noted above, there is a general feeling that approval for a bitcoin ETF of one type or another is inevitable, and so a rebuff by the SEC to the Winkelvoss proposal would only be a temporary setback.
