After several years of improving infrastructure and technology, it seems like multisignature wallet technologies are finally making a headway in the Bitcoin world. Greenaddress.it and BitGo have emerged as primary contenders in the space, and the latter has recently raised $12 million in venture capital funding and boasts that it stores over $100 million in BTC.

Particular […]

Bitcoin has become frequently talked about in the financial media. Despite this the general public is still relatively under informed when it comes to this digital currency. In a January 2014 poll it was found that only 25% of US adults were familiar with Bitcoin. This means that there is still significant room to educate the general public about the advantages of using a peer-to-peer digital currency. To address some of those knowledge gaps here are some of the most common myths about Bitcoin as well some of its key benefits. Myth #1: Bitcoin is no different to any other digital currency There have been many other digital currencies in the past, including Beenz, Liberty Dollars and eGold. However these […]

For the first time ever in human history, we can create unforgeable documents. This is thanks to the Blockchain. The Blockchain is a peer-to-peer ledger, owned by nobody, that creates and records all digital currency transactions using mathematics. The blockchain uses the computing power of the global public to solve these cryptographic problems that confirm transactions made using a digital currency such as bitcoin. The blockchain also stores aspects of each transaction made using the currency; small transactions can be made in which any information is permanently stored; forever. Promises can be made and enshrined on the blockchain. This new form of promise, however, is different than the often broken ones we as humans are accustomed to. They will never […]

Last month I attended an interesting Orlando Bitcoin Meetup. The Meetup took place at Bright Learning Academy, a school for special needs students that works with children who need an alternative to traditional school settings. The school takes a technological approach to learning. It’s no mystery that kids learn to understand technology much more easily than we do. That’s just the way things go. Bright Learning Academy is teaching money management and free market principles with Bitcoin technology. They did it before MIT. Last winter, school teacher Robert Lefebure began signing up students for a wallet at Blockchain.info. “The idea, explains Robert, “was to use Bitcoin to teach personal money management and economics because, frankly, it’s hard to understand where […]

Stefan Thomas is one of the more talented and respected developers in the space. An old hat at this young technology, he has been making waves as the CTO of Ripple labs. In a recent effort he has set his sights on smart contracts technology. The designs and implementation he and his team have come up with are interesting, to say the least. In a white paper entitled Smart Oracles, we see described a novel, simple, and flexible approach to smart contracts. In such a system, rules can be written in any programming language, and contracts can interact with any service that accepts cryptographically signed commands. The paper also includes an implementation of smart oracles, called Codius (based on the […]

This article first appeared on page 26 of Issue 21. You probably don’t think about Marxism when you think about Bitcoin. To most people, Marx is known as the guy who didn’t like private property and capitalism in general. Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency with the ability to encourage markets by breaking down the worldwide barriers created by multiple national currencies, doesn’t seem like it has much to do with him. You would probably think that Marx wouldn’t like Bitcoin. But I don’t think so. I believe if Marx were around today he would see Bitcoin as an excellent example of his Theory of History in action; a global system, with roots in the crisis’ of capitalism, that will bring the world […]
