ADOPTION: French 'Tabac' shops now selling Bitcoin for cash
PARIS (Reuters) - As well as cigarettes, cigars, lottery tickets and the like, visitors to Paris Tabacs can now also buy bitcoins. With the backing of French fintech group Keplerk, the crypto-currency has gone on sale in six tobacco shops in and around Paris. Adil Zakhar, one of Keplerk?s co-founders, hopes to enrol up to 6,500 Tabacs by February. ?Some people find it complicated to get bitcoins on-line,?

Will You Miss My Bitcoins When I'm Gone
By Mark Ray, Next Avenue Contributor Digital security has never been so important or perhaps so easy. You can unlock your phone with your fingerprint or your face. You can use a password manager to store all your login credentials behind a single master password. And you can secure many online accounts with two-factor authentication (where a website sends a one-time code to your phone). But all that security comes at a cost when you die or become incapacitated. If you haven?t planned ahead, your loved ones could find themselves shut out of your digital accounts. And that could cause problems ranging from the trivial (their losing access to your Netflix watchlist) to the tragic (their losing access to your family photos on Flickr). They may not even know which financial or retail accounts you have, since so many companies encourage customers to sign up for email delivery of statements.

Bitwise files to list bitcoin ETF on NYSE Arca - The Block
Crypto asset manager Bitwise filed a Form S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission to list its physically held bitcoin ETF on NYSE Arca, the company announced Thursday.  The bitcoin ETF has been a long-awaited darling of the cryptocurrency world, and a derivative some think could propel the market out of the doldrums and into bullish territory. Still, the SEC has pushed back on all bitcoin ETF applications thus far, citing concerns of manipulation in the underlying spot market.  Bitwise says its product will be based on an index that draws data from large, trustworthy, exchanges. It also will hold bitcoins for the product with a regulated custodian, the firm said. The firm says those qualifications would address the concerns regulators have had about other proposals.
