The Constitution is a living document. The Bible is a living document. The manifesto for the Pepsi logo is a living document and the Bitcoin white paper is breath, a breath of fresh air. Yes, this document is a representation of pure mathematical truth; however, I believe we are at fault if we are to assume “truth” is ubiquitously understood by the masses, or, that the white paper is a system of values and virtues the masses can empathize with. The majority of the world does not look to the white paper as a guideline for anything more than rational knowledge due to the very nature of math as an emotionless concept for anyone who is not a mathematician. Distilling […]

Sports, in many senses, polarize a playing field. They foster an ‘us versus them’ mentality that when taken to an extreme, can hurt others or create an environment where anyone playing the game is at risk for the sake of competition. I’ve seen this same spirit among those who support altcoins and have explicitly said their altcoin’s goal is to supplant Bitcoin’s current #1 spot. Is that really a worthy goal? Is there something better all cryptocurrencies can strive towards? Polarizing cryptocurrencies into rankings or villainizing other altcoins totally obfuscates the true purpose we share: to rise above the lie that we only have the freedom to use currencies issued by sovereign nations. Anyone who claims another cryptocurrency as their […]

Part I introduced some of the challenges in the way of the public understanding of how Bitcoin works, and summarized the strategic roles of the open source software model, peer-to-peer networking, and digital signatures. Part II concludes by discussing hashing and the essential roles it plays in the technical structure of Bitcoin, as well how the system has been designed to be self-financing right from the beginning into the indefinite future. Making a hash of it Hashing plays a role quite different from digital signatures. It proves that a message has not been altered. Running a hash of the same message always produces the same result. If a hash does not match a previous one, it is a warning that […]

Travel on bitcoin has become a simple reality. Not only can you find a place to stay with bitcoin, but you can also fly, buy gasoline, and eat food purchased with bitcoin. Hotel If you want to spend the night in a hotel, CheapAir and Expedia offer bitcoin as a payment option. CheapAir uses BitPay and Expedia uses Coinbase to process their bitcoin payments. We have found Expedia more difficult to use because only a portion of their hotels are currently available for bitcoin. On the other hand, CheapAir offers all hotels listed on their site for bitcoin. Gyft.com allows you to buy gift cards for GlobalHotelCard.com (powered by Orbitz). This step adds the process of buying a gift card […]

Islamic finance is well-known as a world full of rules and prohibitions that seem strange and foreign to western scholars. Interest rates, excessive risk-taking, and investments in products deemed unethical such as wine, weapons, and pornography are strictly prohibited. In fact, every potential product to be invested in has to be approved by religious board members of Islamic banks. Bitcoin is no exception. Indeed, the financial climate around investing in Bitcoin is full of shadows in the Islamic world. No fatwa has been issued against the cryptocurrency, yet the final verdict on whether Muslims can invest in the cryptocurrency is still out. The bewildering array of legal systems scattered throughout the Muslim world doesn’t help, either. There are four fundamental legal […]

The Republican reaction to bitcoin has been mixed. Some lawmakers have enthusiastically supported it, while others have unequivocally opposed it. Interestingly, many mainstream Republican positions make amiable bedfellows with bitcoin. In this article, each section begins with a quote taken directly from the 2012 Republican Party Platform, followed by a discussion of how bitcoin can address the issue in question. Small Business and Entrepreneurship America’s small businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy, employing tens of millions of workers. Small businesses create the vast majority of jobs [and] are the leaders in the world’s advances in technology and innovation, and we pledge to strengthen that role and foster small business entrepreneurship. In a world where resources are preposterously precious and margins […]
