    SAFE Crossroads Podcast #19 SAFE School, Class Two, Going Deeper

    October 7th, 2015 by fergish
    ####In this Episode#### Class Two of the SAFE Network School takes us deeper. We probe down and start to pull apart the great intricacy of the SAFE Network by closely examining the key elements that make it work. But not too fast or overwhelmingly. You'll be surprised how understandable it is when guided by a Simpleton who has already done most of the brain-warping exploration, so that you don't have to warp YOUR head so much.

    The Rise of the Internet of Value (IoV)

    October 7th, 2015 by PFarah
    ###How Blockchains Are About to Disrupt Industries, Governments, and People’s Lives Most people are familiar with the trajectory of digital evolution to date, from Web 1.0 (a one-way content distribution net) to Web 2.0 (an interactive social net) and possibly Web 3.0 (where smart applications monitor data and make decisions as human’s agents, and in doing so interact with both humans, other apps, or IoT-enabled machines). What might be less well-understood is the disruptive power of a new wave of digital capabilities enabled by cryptocurrencies (e.g., Bitcoin) and the underlying distributed ledger technology enabling the P2P exchange of digital value (e.g., the blockchain).

    EB99 - Manuel Aráoz And Esteban Ordano: Streamium, Pay-Per-Second Video Streaming For Indie Producers

    October 5th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    One of the key innovations of Bitcoin is the ability to easily implement payment channels. A number of use cases have been discussed or demonstrated, among which is the idea of pay-per-use. This is particularly useful when charging for things like WiFi or streaming video by the second. With this in mind, one could imagine a line of communication between two peers, where data flows in one direction and payments flow in the other. This is the idea behind Streamium, a free and open-source se... Read More

    SAFE Crossroads #18 SAFE Network School, Class One

    September 30th, 2015 by fergish
    ####In this Episode#### We're happy to announce the opening of the Simpleton's School of the SAFE Network. Since the SAFE Network is being built on a very different combination of fundamentals than has ever been used before and because it is so intricate, it's not possible to just wade in and get a full picture of it without some work. This is especially true because the network is still in development and so can't be used and learned by experience, either. Therefore, the effort of this ... Read More

    EB98 – Robin Hanson: Futarchy, Prediction Markets And The Challenge Of Disruptive Technology

    September 28th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    When Robin Hanson invented the concept of prediction markets almost thirty years ago, he felt he had stumbled on a concept with huge implications. By allowing people to bet on the likelihood of future events, prediction markets promise to allow better forecasts and better decision making. Research into the area has been vibrant, culminating in Hanson's concept of Futarchy: A prediction-market based governance system. At the same time, the real-world applications have been few and far. ... Read More
