    The State of the Blockchain Address(es)

    January 10th, 2015 by jratcliff63367
    [![Alt](http://i.imgur.com/GIEyhG7.png "Title")](http://i.imgur.com/GIEyhG7.png) Over Christmas break, 2013 I wrote a small computer program to parse the entire bitcoin blockchain and output some statistics.

Since then, I have gathered addi... Read More

    ###LTBCoin - A Crypto-token for the Let's Talk Bitcoin Network As a podcaster and content creator on the Lets Talk Bitcoin Network, I was excited to hear about the new token Adam B.

    December 29th, 2014 by OurEverydayEarth

He worked for a tractor building company, Massey Ferguson, which purchased a computer for accounting. He recalled, "It took up almost an entire room and used punched paper cards to load programs." He was recanting this story because I myself had just received my first computer, a Commodore 64, and I was only intereste... Read More

    Bitcoins and Gravy EP 48: Andreas Antonopoulos revisited!

    December 29th, 2014 by johnbarrett
    On today's show, I ask my good listeners to forgive me as I replay a previous episode. With the holidays upon us and traveling out of town to visit family and friends, it was impossible for me to schedule an new interview and do all the associated editing and compiling necessary for a new show. The good news is that the interview I had with Andreas Antonopoulos a few weeks back has been reproduced in all its audio glory for those of you who have heard it and for those of you who may have mis...
