    Which altcoins and why

    February 19th, 2015 by Tron
    At the first Bitcoin conference I ever attended, which took place in San Jose in 2013, I encountered *Bitcoin bigotry*. ASIC mining had begun, and those mining on home computers were switching to Litecoin. Although the altcoin mania was in full bloom, I was at a *Bitcoin* conference, and it was clear that many long-time bitcoin holders perceived altcoins as a threat. For them, it was all about the network effect, and any service poaching from the Bitcoin user base was not viewed favorably. F... Read More

    Nature is still doing its thing

    February 16th, 2015 by arturodelia
    Blockchain technology is nothing new. We have lived with blockchains since our inception as *homo sapiens*. Each cell in our body contains a copy of our unique string of DNA. We have different kinds of cells, so each cell follows a portion of the instructions set out in the DNA, yet each cell contains the full DNA copy. Of course, the cells don't need to worry about bloat since the chain of instructions doesn't change, that is until it merges with the DNA of another human. Amazingly, we can infe... Read More

    Could China consider investing in Bitcoin?

    February 13th, 2015 by totteplott
    China has, for a long time now, been [buying tons of gold](http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/27/chinagold-imports-idUSL3N0L134V20140127), literally, in anticipation of the future. There are a lot of speculations in why China is doing such a move, especially since the CEO of CitiGroup made a statement recently [claiming](http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-27/gold-6000-year-old-bubble-citis-dutch-strategist-throws-all-over-gold-days-after-dut) that "gold is in a 6,000 year bubble".

    Bitcoins and Gravy #54: David Schwartz explains Ripple!

    February 9th, 2015 by johnbarrett
    On today's show I speak with David Schwartz, the Chief Cryptographer at Ripple Labs and one of the architects of the Ripple protocol. David was developing encrypted cloud storage and messaging systems for organizations like CNN and the NSA when he discovered Bitcoin in 2011 and soon became active in the Bitcoin community as "JoelKatz". In late 2011, he was hired by Jed McCaleb to design and implement what is now the Ripple network. David gives us a fantastic explanation of what Ripple really is... Read More

    Bitcoin in Middle Earth: A Trip to Queenstown, NZ

    February 8th, 2015 by TatianaMoroz
    In November, I went all over the world—Vegas to Melbourne, then Sydney to Queenstown. I haven't posted everything from this trip yet, because frankly, there is so much content to go through, it's a bit overwhelming. But I did do some fun interviews that were easy enough to edit, so I wanted to share them here. One of the first friends I made in Bitcoin was Andreas Antonopoulos, when he heard me sing the Bitcoin Jingle for the first time I ever sang it in Buenos Aires. Read More

    A Bitcoin Talk in Costa Rica

    February 8th, 2015 by arturodelia
    I finished 2014 with so many great experiences in Argentina that the final outcome of educating and assisting in the Bitcoin adoption there didn't disappoint me. ... What I didn't expect was that a "tico" (Costa Rican) would contact me and ask whether I wanted to give a Bitcoin talk in San Jose, the capital of Costa Rica. I was already going to visit Costa Rica on my way up from South America as I headed to Canada, so I accepted the invitation. Read More
