The author is involved in the Ethereum project. The author has no relationship with BitGo, Bitrated, Codius or CryptoCorp. Update: Ben Davenport from Bitgo has replied, saying that they already have an API to support use their service as a pure CryptoCorp-like oracle and soon intend to provide a browser extension. I commend them for their rapid response and dedication to sound security practices. After several years of improving infrastructure and technology, it seems like multisignature wallet technologies are finally making a headway in the Bitcoin world. Greenaddress.it and BitGo have emerged as primary contenders in the space, and the latter has recently raised $12 million in venture capital funding and boasts that it stores over $100 million in BTC.

This is a guest post by Naomi Brockwell. The media tends to focus on doom-and-gloom stories, because sensationalist headlines attract larger audiences. However, when journalists go so far as to misrepresent facts and sway the public in one direction or another, these stories can be dangerous. This is especially true when talking about a new technology that has the potential to change lives for the better. Public opinion can mean the difference between this potential being realised, or crushed completely. That is the situation with Bitcoin. The media frequently talks about Bitcoin now, but often misrepresents the facts. Coverage tends to focus on the negatives. Stories about money laundering, drug trading, exploded exchanges, and price crashes predominate. The coverage rarely […]

If you are looking to purchase a pre-owned vehicle with Bitcoin, look no further – Beepi has made it a possibility. With the help of BitPay, the California-based company has integrated bitcoin payment support for its continually expanding line-up of pre-owned automobiles.

For the first time ever in human history, we can create unforgeable documents. This is thanks to the Blockchain. The Blockchain is a peer-to-peer ledger, owned by nobody, that creates and records all digital currency transactions using mathematics. The blockchain uses the computing power of the global public to solve these cryptographic problems that confirm transactions made using a digital currency such as bitcoin. The blockchain also stores aspects of each transaction made using the currency; small transactions can be made in which any information is permanently stored; forever. Promises can be made and enshrined on the blockchain. This new form of promise, however, is different than the often broken ones we as humans are accustomed to. They will never […]

Last month I attended an interesting Orlando Bitcoin Meetup. The Meetup took place at Bright Learning Academy, a school for special needs students that works with children who need an alternative to traditional school settings. The school takes a technological approach to learning. It’s no mystery that kids learn to understand technology much more easily than we do. That’s just the way things go. Bright Learning Academy is teaching money management and free market principles with Bitcoin technology. They did it before MIT. Last winter, school teacher Robert Lefebure began signing up students for a wallet at Blockchain.info. “The idea, explains Robert, “was to use Bitcoin to teach personal money management and economics because, frankly, it’s hard to understand where […]

Stefan Thomas is one of the more talented and respected developers in the space. An old hat at this young technology, he has been making waves as the CTO of Ripple labs. In a recent effort he has set his sights on smart contracts technology. The designs and implementation he and his team have come up with are interesting, to say the least. In a white paper entitled Smart Oracles, we see described a novel, simple, and flexible approach to smart contracts. In such a system, rules can be written in any programming language, and contracts can interact with any service that accepts cryptographically signed commands. The paper also includes an implementation of smart oracles, called Codius (based on the […]

BlueCoin is very serious about their chosen theme. Taking cue from the cultural antics of the Dogecoin community, the founders of BlueCoin have been trying to give it something of a personality. They announced an official BlueCoin afterparty to the North American Bitcoin Conference on BitcoinTalk with a blue-tinted model, and others dressed in BlueCoin superhero-esque outfits were there to amuse guests. So what’s it all about? BlueCoin has nothing to do with colored coins, the Bitcoin 2.0 application. Like RedCoin, BlackCoin, WhiteCoin, YellowCoin and others, BlueCoin is another alternative cryptocurrency that backers claim is superior to Bitcoin, and hope will come to supplant it. A new block is generated every minute, yielding faster transaction confirmations, and the mining difficulty adjusts each […]

This article first appeared on page 26 of Issue 21. You probably don’t think about Marxism when you think about Bitcoin. To most people, Marx is known as the guy who didn’t like private property and capitalism in general. Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency with the ability to encourage markets by breaking down the worldwide barriers created by multiple national currencies, doesn’t seem like it has much to do with him. You would probably think that Marx wouldn’t like Bitcoin. But I don’t think so. I believe if Marx were around today he would see Bitcoin as an excellent example of his Theory of History in action; a global system, with roots in the crisis’ of capitalism, that will bring the world […]
