This afternoon, Texans for Greg Abbott announced acceptance of Bitcoin for campaign donations. Greg Abbott is running as the Republican candidate in the Texas Gubernatorial race. Striving to be a cutting edge candidate, Abbott stated, “I’m excited to see our campaign add another tool to our cutting-edge digital outreach, which is allowing us to reach more Texans than any previous campaign in the state.” It is great to see that Abbott as well as other policymakers note the opportunities Bitcoin has to promote free market economics and ingenuity across the board. Abbott’s campaign will certainly not be the first to embrace Bitcoin in the 2014 election cycle. Abbott’s campaign team published the following press release: April 17, 2014 For Immediate […]

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 […]

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 email@example.com.

This guest post by Ian Grigg is reprinted with permission from financialcryptography.com. Before Bitcoin, there was cryptocurrency. Indeed, it has a long and deep history. If only for the lessons learned, it is worth studying, and indeed, in my ABC of Bitcoin investing, I consider not knowing anything before Satoshi’s paper as a red flag. Hence, a very fast history of what came before. Early Days The first known (to me) attempt at cryptocurrencies occurred in the Netherlands, in the late 1980s, which makes it around 25 years ago or 20BBTC. In the middle of the night, the petrol stations in the remoter areas were being raided for cash, and the operators were unhappy putting guards at risk there. But […]

Beginning Monday, technology enthusiasts in Brazil became able to convert the Brazilian Real to Bitcoin using a Bitcoin vending machine, also known as a Bitcoin ATM. The unveiling marks the first Bitcoin ATM to be installed in Latin America, with a permanent position at a Sao Paulo bar which is already accepting Bitcoin. As the popularity of digital currency in Latin America continues, many businesses and individuals are taking advantage of the benefits that this new payment method provides. For businesses in developing countries, Bitcoin gives businesses the ability to end costly trade restrictions that decrease profits and hinder their ability to compete in the global marketplace. Bitcoin can also cut transaction fees associated with debit and credit card transactions. […]

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 […]

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 […]
