    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

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
