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 […]

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 […]

The Corporation Film’s Crypto Challenge from Hello Cool World on Vimeo. For its 10th year anniversary, “The Corporation” is raising money for a re-release shown to 1,000 schools across North America. Their original fiat campaign closed at $30,000, and they’re hoping for a match from the cryptocurrency community. Campaign creator Kat Dodds is making this a race to the top for a special thanks section of the film that will feature the logos of the contributing cryptocurrencies. Students across 1,000 schools will receive a free lesson in corporate literacy and be exposed to Bitcoin for the first time. The updated version of the film will feature Bitcoin’s logo and explain to the audience how the film was able to get […]

This guide is a continuation of a previous article at http://bitcoinmagazine.com/13104/building-bitcoin-economy-stimulate-adoption/ If you or someone in the area has been preaching crypto for a while, you probably have a few nearby businesses accepting Bitcoin by now. This is an important first step, and worthy of celebration over a few Bitcoin beers. Bitcoin evangelism never sleeps, however, so it’s time to grow the seeds you’ve sown into a sustainable Bitcoin economy. But before you get started, heed what I’ve learned from my latest efforts. When you first bring cryptocurrency adoption to a community, it’s necessary to rely on promises of publicity, delivered in the form of organized events and media attention. The novelty will soon wear off, however, and you can’t volunteer […]

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 […]
