    Tokens and Open Source Hardware Manufacturing, Distribution and Sales

    January 26th, 2016 by adam
    Open Source Hardware is a popular and growing movement. An organization (sometimes charity, usually a non-profit) develops hardware designs and specifications and publishes them to the open source without the desire or potentially the ability to produce the physical products exclusively themselves. The Raspberry Pi project is a perfect example of this with two official stocking manufacturers who share back some of their revenue in compensation for their official status. This money supports further development. By adding three types of tokens to the ecosystem, what is a game for only the biggest of players can become a vibrant environment of efficient, decentralized and distributed reselling. Now distribution can start to take place. Read More

    What’s at stake in the Bitcoin block size debate

    January 11th, 2016 by john
    What Bitcoin Is and How It Works First described by Satoshi Nakamoto in a whitepaper released in late 2008, Bitcoin is a “P2P electronic cash system” that enables two people on the Internet to transact with each other without having to go through a traditional payment processor such as a bank or credit card network. Bitcoin was invented by combining several previously existing technologies - including digital signatures, peer-to-peer networking, and cryptographic pr... Read More

    'How to Save (or Destroy) the Bitcoin Foundation,' by Charles Hoskinson

    January 1st, 2016 by charleshoskinson
    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

    'Recent Actions by Government Could Motivate Brazilians to Adopt Bitcoin,' by Rock Barcellos

    December 23rd, 2015 by rockbarcellos
    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

    'Real Big Data: How to Leverage Bitcoin Blockchains for Unlimited Storage,' by Shankar Narayanan

    November 22nd, 2015 by sgsshankar

    Bitcoin has evolved so much as a currency, considering its volatile nature. Amazon, Target, Namecheap, and Dell accept Bitcoins as payment. Bitcoin is evolving beyond its value as an e-currency and its ability for instant transfer. The technology and mathematical concepts around it make it an interesting application for common everyday problems such as storing big data.

    EverdreamSoft Could Be the King of Crypto Gaming

    November 21st, 2015 by OurEverydayEarth
    As a crypto enthusiast and amateur investor, I spend a lot of time wondering what factors will drive adoption of various cryptocurrencies and assets. A recent news article caught my attention. Game developer, King, was recently purchased by Activision Blizzard, Inc. for a tidy sum of [US$5.9 billion](http://techcrunch.com/2015/11/02/activision-blizzard-acquires-candy-crush-maker-king-digital-entertainment-for-5-9-billion/#.rwvh5gm:m6vZ)!

    Strange Democracy, by Andy Tudhope

    November 19th, 2015 by cryptowanderer
    I recently had a conversation with a friend who runs a leadership programme for high school kids. Suffering from generational dissonance, this friend asked me what my thoughts on leadership for the modern age were and what the most important things to teach leaders of the future might be. How could they instill, he asked, ideas like integrity, ethics, and a strong sense of community when the examples we youngsters have before us are almost to a man corrupt, inefficient, and out of touch with ...

    ##It's Not What You Think I apologize for the title of this article because it is pure unadulterated click-bait. You started reading this because you thought you were going to to hear the **dirty details** of the inner sanctum of the bitcoin moderators; a **secret cabal** of initiates who conduct **ceremonies** and **rituals** under the cover of darkness to **control** the bitcoin community. Sadly, that is **not** the case. The vast bulk of our time and energy is devoted to removi... Read More

    Erik Voorhees: My End Goal for Bitcoin Is the Complete Abandonment of Fiat Currency

    August 19th, 2015 by kyletorpey

    Shapeshift.io CEO Erik Voorhees participated in a fireside chat with Decentralized Applications Fund Managing Director David Johnston at the Texas Bitcoin Conference in late March. During this conversation, Voorhees revealed his overall goal for Bitcoin’s eventual level of success. Some say that Bitcoin only needs to keep existing on a daily basis for it to succeed over the long term, but Voorhees has larger ambitions for the digital money.

    The Decentralization Itch

    July 25th, 2015 by fergish
    *Decentralization.* The buzzword of our times. Increasing numbers and types of people are possessed of an elusive, but very real, visceral “itch” tied to the concept of decentralization. It’s hard to tell if the itch is caused by the concept or if the concept is simply being deployed in an effort to scratch the itch. It can have the appearance of both. “Decentralization, good; centralization, bad.” We see more and more sectors of society plugging this idea into their thoughts and... Read More
