Bitcoin… we are all the blockchain Since the first great jump in Bitcoin’s exchange rate in early April 2013, speculative trade has stolen the limelight as the main Bitcoin story. Tweets of “To the moon!” echo like a rallying cry, selling what amounts to a collective vision statement. But what’s the vision? A respected VC assures us it’s “still headed to 10k” as if Bitcoin was a prize thoroughbred being written down by the Bookies, but still had a few Derbies left in her… Is that all this is about? Whatever one feels about the ‘profiteer mentality’ so evident across the Bitcoin movement, it is clear that without this driver, this long overdue financial systems innovation may not have taken […]

The term “Just in Time Inventory” was coined to refer to the efficiency businesses could gain by not tying up their funds in inventory that sat around on warehouse shelves until the product was needed. The problem of maintaining inventory is that it ties up cash you might otherwise need for productive uses. Sitting on shelves waiting to be purchased or used in assembly is not. New efficiency models started in the 1950s Japan to proceed with new processes and rules that aimed for perfect timing for all business operations. The term “Just in Time” was eventually popularized to be applicable at all points of the business process. Having your inventory days approach zero was the ultimate but, thought to be […]

We all know that bitcoin is decentralized electronic money that runs on a network that can do all kinds of interesting things. The key question is, what can you do with bitcoin that you can’t do with anything else? What does it mean when bitcoin goes native? Note that the term “native” applied to bitcoin is due to Fred Wilson (a venture capitalist based in New York) and expanded upon by Chris Dixon (another venture capitalist based in San Francisco). Wilson writes (in The Bitcoin Hype Cycle): “What’s more interesting is the question of what will lead us onto the slope of enlightenment? I am thinking that we will start to see native applications of Bitcoin. These would be things […]

How to spot a scam In the wake of this morning’s Bit-Trader.biz announcement, I thought it was time to finally write an article about spotting scams. I’ve been “doing” Bitcoin fo-re-ver. You haven’t heard of me because, for the most part, I’m a lurker – and I like it that way. But recently, I’ve come out of the closet a bit more loudly in public. For a little background on me … I’m a marketer. I have handled large brands, small brands, and everything in between. Nowadays, I run my own home security company, Alarm Grid. I’m the director of marketing and an avid Bitcoiner. Those are probably the two activities that I spend the most time on these days. […]

Thane Richard of Outernet is chatting with me while in a coffee shop (on the anonymous peer-to-peer chat platform Talky). His car is being repaired at the mechanic next door—ah, the woes of the terrestrial world! Thane, what is Outernet? I think we should start by saying that there’s a pretty big problem—gap, disparity, whatever you want to call it—in the world right now, that not a lot of people are aware of. That’s that only about a third of humanity right now has access to the Internet. Four billion people cannot access the Internet, which is essentially an enormous library. The largest library ever built. And that library enables you to access so much valuable information that everyday, people […]

As long as we have had something to believe in, there has been mass manipulation. As long as we have had finite resources, there has been war. As long as there has been war, we have had the dream of peace. There is only one thing separating dreams from reality: Action. Rarely do we meditate, as a community deeply involved in Bitcoin, on the impact we can have to positively evolve the very issues the mass media has taken so kindly to attribute to Bitcoin as a technology. Has Bitcoin been the cause of criminal activities, or has Bitcoin caused complete exploitation of criminal activities which have been evolving under the surface of economic life throughout the history of financial […]

You have to hand it to the world’s unofficial richest man – Russia’s Vladimir Putin. He’s running a covert financial war against the Western countries so successfully it makes US banks like JP Morgan look like stooges. The Russian covert underground cyber-army is taunting banks and has become so confident in their abilities they can brag about them before they even pull off their cyber-tricks. The newly reported K-Mart hack attack was just announced recently but the actual intrusion was already several weeks old. For the Russian mafia – it’s like taking candy from a baby. They can handle their army of hackers like puppets on strings. What can the US do in return? What is the best weapon the […]
