Submission + - Bitcoin revolution spreads as JPMorgan files patent for 'Virtual Cash' (ibtimes.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: It seems everyone is getting in on the Bitcoin revolution these days; even the corporate fat cats want a piece of the action. Apparently JP Morgan has filed a patent for its own version of Bitcoin, virtual cash, which would allow users to make payments anonymously. The scope for criminality seems endless, but hey, those bankers are all honest, trustworthy types, and you never hear about JPM being embroiled in criminal proceedings, so why worry?
