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, […]

Uncoinventional: the Tour in Review Last month, our family traveled the U.S. spending only bitcoins. We documented our travels for Bitcoin Magazine through a live blog. As we embarked on this journey, I had no idea what I had got myself into. Still, I felt compelled to try. For those of you who weren’t following our ups and downs in realtime, here are the highlights: The Numbers The trip took a total of 24 days and brought us to stops in 12 cities. We traveled a total of 4,600 miles and pumped gas 16 times. We stayed in eight hotels, crashed in three guest bedrooms and camped at one campground. We paid seven businesses directly with Bitcoin and used three […]

Bitcoin, a digital currency once described by critics as unusable, unreliable and even a scam, has defied those remarks as it becomes accepted by a company maintaining over 14 million subscribers and employing 34,000 workers. DISH executive vice president and chief operating officer, Bernie Han, said beginning in July the satellite TV company will accept digital coins through the payment processor, Coinbase. Coinbase is a bitcoin consumer wallet and merchant payment processor that powers 1.3 million consumer wallets, and supports 31,000 merchants. The payment processor, Coinbase, will convert bitcoins to cash using their “Instant Exchange” feature, in order to prevent DISH from being affected by value fluctuations. Coinbase was chosen as the payment processor due to their significantly lower operational […]

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 […]

Open source technology is fundamental to the cryptocurrency movement, and that’s a good thing. Bitcoin wouldn’t have the same appeal if it were copyrighted by a company, or if any of the underlying code were hidden from the public. The free and transparent nature of open source projects was necessary for the success of Bitcoin, and cryptocurrency appears ready to return the favor by decentralizing software distribution as we know it. One of the most important ideas to emerge from the movement so far are decentralized exchanges. These allow one to (without trusting a central authority) trade different cryptocurrencies on smart contract-enabled platforms like Counterparty, Mastercoin or Ethereum. The additional invention of smart property–the owners of which can be tracked using a blockchain–means that […]
