    The Bitcoin Game #11 - Paul Puey - How Bitcoin Will Revolutionize Mobile Payments

    March 1st, 2015 by Rob
    Welcome to episode 11 of *The Bitcoin Game*, I'm Rob Mitchell. It's great to live in a big city such as Los Angeles because of the opportunity to network with people doing amazing things in the Bitcoin space. While Paul Puey founded Airbitz from San Diego, he still has managed to attend enough Los Angeles Bitcoin meetups that he seems like a local. In January of this year, Airbitz was selected by Plug and Play to take part in their Startup Camp Accelerator in Silicon Valley. Paul still had no... 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

Since then, we have seen the currency's value jump to nearly $1,200 per coin before coming back to ... Read More

    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
