    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

    The Writing is on the Wall; We Need Decentralized Social Networks!

    December 22nd, 2014 by adam
    _[Image Credit](http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/85/Graffiti_berlin_wall.JPG)_ **Facebook represents the ultimate success** that can be achieved by a technology company in the current paradigm; publicly traded with a valuation in the billions and broad global use of the service. That matters because a social network is just like any network, it becomes exponentially more valuable the more active users it has, so as the defacto solution for the interested market, theyre pretty ...

    Bitcoin in Africa

    December 18th, 2014 by john
    This is a guest post written by Gibson Gibz, founder of the Kenyan Bitcoin startup Bitsoko.Africa is really in the gray area as far as bitcoin is concerned, that aside there is a lot going on in the bitcoin space and a noticeable opportunity for business and investment. Bitcoin is now moving from the early adopters to the early majority and it goes without saying that the infrastructure required to make bitcoin mainstream is still a long way out. It is not different in Africa; considering most ... Read More

    Beginning of the End for Clickbait?

    December 17th, 2014 by OurEverydayEarth
    My blog used to be fairly popular. I personally wrote articles every week and sometimes everyday. I was tracking the number of unique visits per day using Google Analytics and the statistics looked great. We were getting thousands of unique visitors each week, and I started getting emails from advertisers. I remembered thinking; > **Wow, we can make enough money to pay for hosting, maybe even enough to fund some product giveaways and buy lunch here and there!"** Looking back, I wish I had ... Read More

    BYOB: Using Bitcoin to Be Your Own Bank

    December 15th, 2014 by john
    After the first time I heard about bitcoin, it took me almost a year of learning about the underlying technology before I bought my first coins. Part of the reason for the delay was because I wanted to first understand bitcoin, but after grokking the concept of “decentralized digital currency,” the main hurdle was availability. The options for purchasing bitcoins were slim at the time, limited to wiring money to online exchanges in foreign countries or sending concealed cash in an en... Read More

    Bitcoin Adoption in Developing Countries May Take Longer Than Expected

    November 18th, 2014 by tkembo
    I live in Zimbabwe and have been a Bitcoin evangelist here for about a year now.

In this article, I explore the reasons for slow adoption in developing countries. Finally, I suggest solutions for improving the situation. Read More
