    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

    ###LTBCoin - A Crypto-token for the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network As a podcaster and content creator on the Lets Talk Bitcoin Network, I was excited to hear about the new token Adam B. Levine was visioning. Being part of the initial distribution of the coin made it all the more interesting.

    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

The good news is that the interview I had with Andreas Antonopoulos a few weeks back has been reproduced in all its audio glory for those of you who have heard it and for those of you who may have mis...
