    June 8th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin

For some, it is an urgent and necessary step in Bitcoin's evolution. Their view is that leaving the block size at 1MB would be irresponsible inaction with potentially catastrophic consequences. Others see increasing the block size as unnecessary and a dangerous first step down a slippery slope towards a more centralized Bitcoin. We were joined by Mike Hearn,... Read More

    Using Tokens Built on Bitcoin to Fix DRM and Morph Software into Property

    June 1st, 2015 by adam

    One of the biggest pain points in software exists at the intersection of sales and the replicability of data. Digital Rights Management (DRM) hasn't been what you would call a great success. Too many others have already said it well for me to waste your time rehashing why DRM is a problem, but the outcome is relevant. DRM doesn’t work. At Tokenly, we're creating other options.

It's no surprise that this could make for a riveting story and NY Times journalist Nathaniel Popper's book 'Digital Gold - Bitcoin and the Inside Story of the Misfits and Millionaires Trying to Reinvent Money' is precisely...

    *Original post from http://hoskinsoncharles.blogspot.ca/2015/05/thoughts-on-ross.html* From time to time, I enjoy investing an afternoon considering politics and the state of affairs here in the United States. Our country is the first hyperpower forcing all other nations to consider us in whatever policy happens to be the day's grock. This reality is divorced from ethical or moral metrics and the war on drugs is no different. For whatever reason (religious, practical, dystopian, etc), po... Read More

    May 25th, 2015 by epicenterbitcoin

Joseph Poon and Tadge Dryja, the co-authors of the whitepaper, joined us for a discussion of scalability and how the lightning network could allow massive numbers of off-chain transaction in a trustless way.
