Some people ask me why I love Bitcoin so much, given that I (at the time of this writing) don’t have very much. I wear Bitcoin shirts, talk about it way too much, and have convinced dozens of businesses to adopt it–I even got a Bitcoin tattoo on my left shoulder, paid for in BTC. No wonder they ask. Usually, I just shrug it off (the question, not the tattoo), and say that I hate the government. That is fairly correct, but it’s not the real reason I’m so passionate about cryptocurrency. While Bitcoin certainly is able to fix some of our world’s biggest problems, and I’d like to think my motivations are as logical as that, the deeper reasons are more […]

We are living in a new world. As Andreas Antonopoulos put so eloquently, “now that we have crypto-currencies, it’s not sovereignty that determines currency, it’s currency that creates sovereignty.” Bitcoin has helped declare independence for the Internet, and it appears it will continue to disrupt the status quo until that independence is recognized. If we’ve learned anything from P2P technology, it’s that our rules bend around the tech, not the other way around. But if our rules bend around the tech, could we one day be living in a world where our borders do too? Take the concept of decentralized autonomous states, or society if you like. The idea is that a political faction could be distributed throughout a global […]

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 […]

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 […]

A little while back I reported on a fascinating project I had been following. I have continued to follow this project with interest. As the world’s first Bitcoin-powered pay-per-character publishing platform, Bitcoin Megaphone peaked my interest. Truly innovative and original ideas in the space can be difficult to come by, even with so much happening. Bitcoin Megaphone, the cutting-edge micro-publishing platform, has just unveiled its affiliate program. The program works by instantly paying affiliates 30% of the profits generated by referrals. Since Bitcoin Megaphone uses Coinbase as its merchant platform, the affiliate transactions happen off-blockchain and without fees. What is most fascinating, and only really possible because of Bitcoin itself, is that all that’s required to sign up for the […]
