If you can understand the organization of ants, you can understand MaidSafe. Alone, by itself, an ant is both vulnerable and easily marginalized. Yet when working with the rest of the colony, ants with roughly the same petite attributes can take down larger prey, clear paths and protect the mound from disasters (both natural and man-made). I spoke with David Irvine, the CEO of MaidSafe and he used this type of analogy to describe how the decentralized attributes of MaidSafe works. MaidSafe bills itself as a wholly decentralized internet wherein it acts as a decentralized storage platform available to anyone globally. Over the past 8 years, the team has concocted a cauldron of algorithms which harmonize, orchestrate and control individual […]

Example: tx1 double-spent by tx2 How did I do that? Simple: I took advantage of the fact that not all miners have the exact same mempool policies. In the case of the above two transactions due to the fee drop introduced by 0.9 only a minority of miners actually will accept tx1, which pays 0.1mBTC/KB, even though the network and most wallet software will accept it. (e.g. Android wallet) Equally I could have taken advantage of the fact that some of the hashing power blocks payments to Satoshidice, the "correct horse battery...

So I found myself alone and sitting at a decent restaurant in my area, specifically a Red Robin. I found my food wonderful and was just preparing to pay for my check, when I realized that I had not brought my wallet! As I was alone, I couldn't have someone spot me my meal and I was seriously afraid I was going to be unable to pay. But then I thought, "I wonder if I could use bitcoin somehow to pay. I still have my phone after all..." ...

Bitcoin Magazine is currently considering breaking up the magazine into categories. The motivation for this is a desire for our readers to know what section they are in without looking at the table of contents. We also want to group similar stories near each other and possibly color code our sections to assist in automaticity while navigating through the magazine. We also want these sections to reflect our readers favorite areas of interest, and hope this poll will help us as we consider using categories/sections to group magazine content. If you want to suggest a different category please enter it in the comments or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Peercoin was the first Bitcoin-based monetary system to use proof-of-stake as a mechanism to ensure its own integrity. However, there are some objections to Peercoin’s proof-of-stake model. This article presents those objections along with a similar system redesigned to address them. In a simplified version of Peercoin’s proof-of-stake design, each node can use part of its balance as a stake allowing it to chain blocks. The bigger that stake, the more chances this node has of increasing the block chain. The reward for chaining blocks is 1% of the used stake as newly minted coins, annually. Conversely, making transactions requires paying a fee that destroys 0.01 coins per transaction. For example, after having chained a block using one coin of […]

CNBC.com has released their digital documentary “The Bitcoin Uprising” this morning. The documentary follows cnbc.com reporter Mary Thompson into the world of bitcoin, from home-based mining operations to the deep web. Thompson and one of her producers, Karina Frayter, decided to create this piece after realizing that a 1-minute ‘hit’ (or story) on the currency was too difficult to do. The documentary will only be available online, as that is the “most appropriate place for it, considering the bitcoin community is completely immersed in the digital world,” Thompson explains. Thompson’s journey through the bitcoin sphere started from a place of “pure curiosity.” However, she quickly recognized that this new technology had many “strong voices backing it, and strong voices criticizing […]

Disclosure: the author of this article is the founder and Chief Scientist of the Ethereum project Last week, Adam Back and Austin Hill came out with an announcement on Let’s Talk Bitcoin, in which they announced their newest project: “sidechains”. The idea, they described, would allow for the existence of alternative blockchains, perhaps with different rules allowing various kinds of additional features or transaction types, but with a currency unit whose value is pegged to that of the bitcoin. The intent is to allow experimentation with different extensions to the Bitcoin protocol, using separate networks to avoid any risk to Bitcoin itself, while still using the same underlying currency unit. As soon as the idea was announced, there has been […]

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and today’s money mechanics certainly didn’t come in a single treaty. Our global financial system, like any human system, is not perfect and can be outright cruel and inhumane. We have witnessed injections and bailouts for some, and austerity and social benefit cuts for the poor- that’s money mechanics. Why do the orchestrators of such a system play down or block Bitcoins’ right to exist? Former FED chairman, Alan Greenspan in December of 2013 stated, “I do not understand where the backing of Bitcoin is coming from“. Warren Buffet has referred to Bitcoin as a “mirage“. Money, as you might imagine has existed since our first human civilization. While the exact origins are […]

In order to create a broad appeal for the concepts behind cryptocurrencies clear communication is crucial. Some of the terminology used in describing Bitcoin has been widely accepted, and taken as a given, almost unchangeable feature of cryptocurrencies. Other, more precisely codified components of the protocol can be changed as long as there is consensus around the usefulness of this change and more than 50% of the people running the Bitcoin network accept the new version. The metaphors and the corresponding terms used to describe how Bitcoin works can also be updated, or even radically changed, if we think that the change would provide value. Why would we do that? As Bitcoin becomes mainstream, or aims to do so, one of […]
