    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 ...

    EB105 – Vlad Zamfir: Bringing Ethereum Towards Proof-Of-Stake With Casper

    November 16th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    With Proof-of-Stake (PoS) a blockchain is secured not by spending an external resource such as electricity but by using value internal to the chain itself. The promise of higher security at a lower cost is what also drives Ethereum to plan a move away from Proof-of-Work to PoS in the future. Ethereum researcher Vlad Zamfir, who leads their effort in the complex search for the optimal PoS consensus system joined us for an in-depth discussion of the challenges of PoS, the approach Casper is tak...

    The Bitcoin Biographies: Rob Mitchell of the Bitcoin Game

    November 13th, 2015 by cherapple
    When [Rob Mitchell](https://letstalkbitcoin.com/profile/user/rob) mentioned that he had recorded an introduction about himself for his podcast *[The Bitcoin Game](https://letstalkbitcoin.com/blog/category/the-bitcoin-game)* several times, but he hadn’t yet created one he wanted to use, I jumped at the chance to interview him. Mitchell started his podcast a little more than a year ago. He has since published 29 biweekly episodes, including memorable ones such as interviews with Johoe, the white hat hacker, Jake Benson of LibraTax  —  which I remember because I didn’t want to listen, but when I did, it was very helpful  —  and two of his latest with [John Barrett](https://letstalkbitcoin.com/profile/user/johnbarrett) of [Bitcoins and Gravy](https://letstalkbitcoin.com/blog/category/bitcoins-and-gravy-ltb-network-shows), and writer [Brian Cohen](https://letstalkbitcoin.com/profile/user/bcohen). He also created the Bitcoin keychains that appear in images all over the Internet. I asked him to tell me more about everything he's been doing "in Bitcoinland." Read More

    Let's Talk Bitcoin! #262 - Classic Episode: Tree Chains with Peter Todd

    November 10th, 2015 by adam
    ##On Episode 262... Hey folks, i'm still working on those conference episodes so on today's episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin, we're going back in time for a classic episode and one of my all time favorites. We'll spend most of today's show with Andreas, Stephanie and Peter Todd during one of our rare in-person recordings, talking about Peter's revolutionary Tree Chains concept: What it is, why solo mining is worth saving and how it could change how Bitcoin works for the better. This is also the episode where I explained Tokens from the ground up for the first time. six months before Tokenly was founded I was focused on helping projects like MyPowers and Swarm deliver token solutions to the world of crowdfunding. Eighteen months later, Tokenly is now fixated on providing token solutions to Crowdfunding platforms except this time instead of building a new crowdfunding platform, we're able to provide all of the possibilities to campaigns and platforms wherever they are. This episode is the original 2014 edit. Read More

    Mike Ward on 'Internet in Chains'

    November 10th, 2015 by mdw
    Seems like quite a bit of controversy was stirred up by the recent Economist article, "The great chain of being sure about things," which they say "has implications far beyond the cryptocurrency." Their point seems to be spot-on in my view. Bitcoin is a substrate for token-based systems of many sorts. But is it the most appropriate choice for all use cases? Aren't we likely to see MILLIONS of blockchains in the future? Read More
