I think things are slowly starting to turn back in the right direction for Bitcoin. After the Mt. Gox fiasco dragging on for many months, the news around Bitcoin has been pretty quiet for the last little while. I think the good news is going to slowly start flowing again. This announcement from Circle is a good first step.
Yes, I heard about the Bitcoin Foundation resignations this week, but the Bitcoin Foundation is becoming less important as companies like Circle and Coinbase come to the forefront.
