I've been thinking about the Bitcoin Foundation over the last few months. After I left as the first chairman of the education committee in late 2013, I dismissed the Foundation as a mostly inept attempt by some business interests in the community to gain an edge over their competitors.
So why my sudden interest, after my self-imposed exile?Read More

I visited many banks recently just to see how they work, and how they render services to customers. Since then, I see no authentic reason why people should ignore bitcoin, because it is the only global currency that preaches liberty to all. It makes monetary transactions simple, fast, and easier than with a bank today.
According to the U.S. Department of State website:
"Sierra Leone’s gross domestic product (GDP) in 2011 was $2 billion. The World Bank estimate gross national income (GNI) per capita for Sierra Leone is $340. This translates to over 72 percent of the population living on less than $1 per day, in extreme poverty."
This is why Sierra Leone needs Bitcoin.Read More

Recently, Brazil’s government ordered WhatsApp to shut down its services within the country. WhatsApp is widely adopted by Brazilians. In a country with a population of around 200 million, there are about 100 million users, and the ruling caused a massive reaction against the decision. People immediately sought ways to get around the block through the use of VPN services, in order to keep using the messaging service. Many migrated to other apps, such as Telegram.
Will such events cause an eventual migration to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin?Read More

Oh the currencies they’re all crashing

While the bankers are busy cryin
And the Wall Street crooks are fryin
My stash will be building - so
