Some people ask me why I love Bitcoin so much, given that I (at the time of this writing) don’t have very much. I wear Bitcoin shirts, talk about it way too much, and have convinced dozens of businesses to adopt it–I even got a Bitcoin tattoo on my left shoulder, paid for in BTC. No wonder they ask. Usually, I just shrug it off (the question, not the tattoo), and say that I hate the government. That is fairly correct, but it’s not the real reason I’m so passionate about cryptocurrency. While Bitcoin certainly is able to fix some of our world’s biggest problems, and I’d like to think my motivations are as logical as that, the deeper reasons are more […]

There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come. - Victor Hugo. French poet and writer. 1802 – 1885 Historians may look back on these current days with fascination. We may be living through the beginning of one of the biggest paradigm shifts in modern human history. The way the world actually thinks about money and stored value might be changing in a tidal wave of recognition. This article will define what a paradigm is and what a paradigm shift looks like. Perhaps we may understand how to prepare and perhaps benefit from the embryonic beginnings of what may one day be seen as a titanic shift. The […]

Last month our family spent nearly a month living on the road while spending only Bitcoin. During the course of our travel we were invited via Twitter to make a change to our route so we could experience the cutting edge Bitcoin Boulevard, founded by Nikhil Chand and his amazing wife, Rebecca. The pair has helped dozens of restaurants and shops set up to accept Bitcoin through BitPay. We immediately changed our route to include an overnight stop in Cleveland Heights, Ohio so we could test out the local Bitcoin scene and get to know their community. When we pulled up to their vintage 1920s house, Nikhil and Rebecca were waiting for us in their driveway. They helped us unload […]

This past month was the Bitcoin in the Beltway Conference held in Washington, D.C. The event was planned by Jason King, who recently ran 3,214 miles on a tour called “Bitcoin Across America”. The Conference took place at the Marriott Renaissance in Downtown D.C. and proceeds went to King’s organization, Sean’s Outpost, a homeless outreach and advocacy group that operates on bitcoin donations. King defies the laws of physics with the amount of energy he pours into his advocacy. In addition to literally running across the country for Bitcoin and organizing this major event in D.C., he is also a regular speaker at BTC events across the country and a dedicated philanthropist. The event featured speakers such as Patrick Byrne, […]

A little while back I reported on a fascinating project I had been following. I have continued to follow this project with interest. As the world’s first Bitcoin-powered pay-per-character publishing platform, Bitcoin Megaphone peaked my interest. Truly innovative and original ideas in the space can be difficult to come by, even with so much happening. Bitcoin Megaphone, the cutting-edge micro-publishing platform, has just unveiled its affiliate program. The program works by instantly paying affiliates 30% of the profits generated by referrals. Since Bitcoin Megaphone uses Coinbase as its merchant platform, the affiliate transactions happen off-blockchain and without fees. What is most fascinating, and only really possible because of Bitcoin itself, is that all that’s required to sign up for the […]

The Atlanta-based company, BitPay, has been hard at work developing solutions for businesses and individuals in the bitcoin space, and from this, recently released a beta of their new multi-signature wallet, Copay. The wallet is completely open-source and aims to provide a multi-signature transaction that occurs on the blockchain and allows complete control of user funds. Released early last week, Copay can change the way bitcoin users think about transaction processes. Multi-signature technology eliminates having to rely on a third-party to store your bitcoins. Instead, what this technology brings to the table is an easy way to safely maintain possession of your funds, with a wallet that has a wide-range of use cases and will likely become the norm for […]
