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 […]

There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come. - Victor Hugo. French poet and writer. 1802 – 1885 Historians may look back on these current days with fascination. We may be living through the beginning of one of the biggest paradigm shifts in modern human history. The way the world actually thinks about money and stored value might be changing in a tidal wave of recognition. This article will define what a paradigm is and what a paradigm shift looks like. Perhaps we may understand how to prepare and perhaps benefit from the embryonic beginnings of what may one day be seen as a titanic shift. The […]

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 […]

This past month was the Bitcoin in the Beltway Conference held in Washington, D.C. The event was planned by Jason King, who recently ran 3,214 miles on a tour called “Bitcoin Across America”. The Conference took place at the Marriott Renaissance in Downtown D.C. and proceeds went to King’s organization, Sean’s Outpost, a homeless outreach and advocacy group that operates on bitcoin donations. King defies the laws of physics with the amount of energy he pours into his advocacy. In addition to literally running across the country for Bitcoin and organizing this major event in D.C., he is also a regular speaker at BTC events across the country and a dedicated philanthropist. The event featured speakers such as Patrick Byrne, […]

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 […]
