    Epicenter Bitcoin #68 – Kamikaze Attack, Block Halving And The Perils Of Proof-Of-Work

    March 2nd, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin
    Is Bitcoin secure from attacks that could destroy the currency? To a large part, this is determined by how expensive it is to carry out an attack and by the potential profits the attacker could generate. Ideally, an attack is so expensive to carry out that no profit-driven attacker would engage in it. Read More

    A Chinese Lawyer's Thoughts on Crypto

    February 28th, 2015 by totteplott
    China has recently [surpassed the US](http://www.marketwatch.com/story/its-official-america-is-now-no-2-2014-12-04) as the world's biggest economy, and although China has had problems with its shadow banking system, corruption and more, it has shown to be surprisingly open about cryptocurrencies. This may seem surprising coming from a country that is communist, at least on paper. In order to get better understanding of how the Chinese are reasoning about this topic, here is an interview with [Roland Sun](https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=381543277) (孙铭), a leading cryptocurrency lawyer in China.

    A Fresh Look at the Bitcoin Foundation, Part One

    February 25th, 2015 by samj
    This series of posts will show the perspective of a relative newcomer to Bitcoin, focus on the function of the Bitcoin Foundation, and cover aspects such as such as communication, public perception, efficiency, as well as transparency. I only recently joined the foundation, after looking for a way in which I could provide support towards Bitcoin’s development. The foundation is arguably the "official" organisation behind Bitcoin for many reasons, although it is important to note that the two are independent. One is a decentralized, open-source cryptocurrency. The other is a nonprofit organization. Read More
