    The Bitcoin Game #8 - Danno Ferrin, Bitstamp & Visualization

    January 18th, 2015 by Rob
    Welcome to *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. Danno Ferrin's current day job is working on Java for the Oracle Corporation. But for fun, Danno uses his programming skills to create visualization software for the BItcoin blockchain. In the wake of the large Bitstamp theft, Danno has been able to analyze some of the Bitcoin movements, using his software. Danno might be one of the most knowledgeable people about the loss, other than insiders like Bitstamp employees and the actual hacker (I ha... 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]( "Title")]( 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
