    An Alternate Reality for LTBcoin

    March 13th, 2015 by john
    Recently on my LTB network podcast, P2P Connects Us, Matthew Deiters joined the show to talk about his company, Assembly. Assembly is a collaboration platform for open source software projects with a twist: contributors actually get paid if the project is successful in the market. The way it works is that someone with an idea for an app creates a project on Assembly and is issued an initial sum of “Assembly coins.” At the time that they are issued, the coins aren't worth anything bec...

    Dream Bitcoin Foundation to Organize March 21 CoinFest Event in Ghana, Africa

    March 11th, 2015 by davidareallen
    Earlier this year, I met a young man while experimenting with [Getgems](http://getgems.org/) messenger. His goal was clear: to bring awareness to his city and country about the use of Bitcoin. [Philip Agyei Asare](https://twitter.com/BTC4Revolution) is active in his community and needs financial help to follow his dream. The [Dream Bitcoin Foundation](https://dreamfoundationgh.wordpress.com/) will be organizing a Bitcoin-focused event on March 17, 2015 in Kumasi called [CoinFest](https://www.facebook.com/events/857397027650736/). . . .

    A Chinese Lawyer's Thoughts on Crypto

    February 28th, 2015 by totteplott
    China has recently [surpassed the US](http://www.marketwatch.com/story/its-official-america-is-now-no-2-2014-12-04) as the world's biggest economy, and although China has had problems with its shadow banking system, corruption and more, it has shown to be surprisingly open about cryptocurrencies. This may seem surprising coming from a country that is communist, at least on paper. In order to get better understanding of how the Chinese are reasoning about this topic, here is an interview with [Roland Sun](https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=381543277) (孙铭), a leading cryptocurrency lawyer in China.

    A Fresh Look at the Bitcoin Foundation, Part One

    February 25th, 2015 by samj
    This series of posts will show the perspective of a relative newcomer to Bitcoin, focus on the function of the Bitcoin Foundation, and cover aspects such as such as communication, public perception, efficiency, as well as transparency. I only recently joined the foundation, after looking for a way in which I could provide support towards Bitcoin’s development. The foundation is arguably the "official" organisation behind Bitcoin for many reasons, although it is important to note that the two are independent. One is a decentralized, open-source cryptocurrency. The other is a nonprofit organization. Read More

    Which altcoins and why

    February 19th, 2015 by Tron
    At the first Bitcoin conference I ever attended, which took place in San Jose in 2013, I encountered *Bitcoin bigotry*. ASIC mining had begun, and those mining on home computers were switching to Litecoin. Although the altcoin mania was in full bloom, I was at a *Bitcoin* conference, and it was clear that many long-time bitcoin holders perceived altcoins as a threat. For them, it was all about the network effect, and any service poaching from the Bitcoin user base was not viewed favorably. F... Read More

    Nature is still doing its thing

    February 16th, 2015 by arturodelia
    Blockchain technology is nothing new. We have lived with blockchains since our inception as *homo sapiens*. Each cell in our body contains a copy of our unique string of DNA. We have different kinds of cells, so each cell follows a portion of the instructions set out in the DNA, yet each cell contains the full DNA copy. Of course, the cells don't need to worry about bloat since the chain of instructions doesn't change, that is until it merges with the DNA of another human. Amazingly, we can infe... Read More

    Could China consider investing in Bitcoin?

    February 13th, 2015 by totteplott
    China has, for a long time now, been [buying tons of gold](http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/27/chinagold-imports-idUSL3N0L134V20140127), literally, in anticipation of the future. There are a lot of speculations in why China is doing such a move, especially since the CEO of CitiGroup made a statement recently [claiming](http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-27/gold-6000-year-old-bubble-citis-dutch-strategist-throws-all-over-gold-days-after-dut) that "gold is in a 6,000 year bubble".

    A Bitcoin Talk in Costa Rica

    February 8th, 2015 by arturodelia
    I finished 2014 with so many great experiences in Argentina that the final outcome of educating and assisting in the Bitcoin adoption there didn't disappoint me. ... What I didn't expect was that a "tico" (Costa Rican) would contact me and ask whether I wanted to give a Bitcoin talk in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. I was already going to visit Costa Rica on my way up from South America as I headed to Canada, so I accepted the invitation. Read More

    A Community of Bitcoin Tippers

    January 31st, 2015 by OurEverydayEarth
    [Reddit.com](http://www.reddit.com/) is host to many diverse and fascinating subreddits, created and monitored by the community. The following article discusses one of my favorite subreddits. ##My Introduction to BitTippers My morning routine is to eat a bowl of cereal, make a cup of coffee, and sit surfing my favorite Bitcoin-related sites before work. It was on one of these typical mornings sometime last year that I stumbled across a small subreddit called "BitTippers." Read More

    Support P2P Connects Us, Get LTBcoin

    January 18th, 2015 by john
    Recently, I set up a Patreon campaign for the P2P Connects Us podcast. For those who aren't familiar with Patreon, it's a unique crowdfunding platform for content creators. People who enjoy the content that a creator produces ("patrons") can pledge a certain amount of money, which is then charged to the patron's credit/debit card or PayPal account each time a new piece of content is released. So if someone pledges $5, then each time the creator released a new piece of content, they will be charg... Read More

    The Future Of Currency: Time-Based Asset Tokens and Experience Coins

    January 12th, 2015 by mmanvil74
    The proliferation of cryptocurrencies has caused many to question the very definition of currency. The introduction of user-created assets, network tokens, app coins, and other Bitcoin 2.0 jargon represents our attempt to name something similar but *somehow different* than currency. Bitcoin itself has many attributes that fit the definition of currency, and yet, many of its attributes do not resemble currency at all. Regardless of the terms used to define a currency, currency does not have ... Read More

    The State of the Blockchain Address(es)

    January 10th, 2015 by jratcliff63367
    [![Alt](http://i.imgur.com/GIEyhG7.png "Title")](http://i.imgur.com/GIEyhG7.png) Over Christmas break, 2013 I wrote a small computer program to parse the entire bitcoin blockchain and output some statistics. At the time my major motivation was simply a desire to understand how many bitcoins in circulation are potentially "zombies"; meaning those associated with addresses that have remained untouched for several years and might well be permanently lost. Since then, I have gathered addi... Read More

    You Were Lucky! When I Was a Lad

    December 29th, 2014 by OurEverydayEarth
    As a boy, I was fortunate to live within walking distance of my grandparents' home and can clearly remember sitting with my grandfather discussing his first computer experience. He worked for a tractor building company, Massey Ferguson, which purchased a computer for accounting. He recalled, "It took up almost an entire room and used punched paper cards to load programs." He was recanting this story because I myself had just received my first computer, a Commodore 64, and I was only intereste... Read More

    December 26th, 2014 by fernando
    At *Bitcoin2014*, [Gavin Andresen](https://twitter.com/gavinandresen) proclaimed 2014 to be the year of multisig. Putting debate over whether this prediction came to fruition aside, continue reading to learn more about multisig technology. ##What are multisignature addresses? Multisignature addresses (or multisigs) are addresses that allow more than one signature to spend the funds. Oftentimes multiple signatures are required in conjunction.
