1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Acronis Introduces New Services That Includes Blockchain-Based Notary on: January 28, 2017, 09:27:13 PM
Quote
Acronis has recognized the importance of maintaining the integrity of data by integrating new technologies like the Blockchain into its new notary service. This delivers ‘tamper-proof’ data storage that leverages Blockchain functionality to ensure data authenticity, privacy and control. Acronis will apply Blockchain technology to its solutions, which provides a record of digital events distributed across different participants or entities, and opens up a broad range of new data protection use cases for businesses worldwide. With this new Blockchain application, data and transactions can only be updated by rules of consensus between participants in the system, and when new data is entered, it can never be erased. Acronis solutions leveraging Blockchain technology are scheduled to be available in October. An online demo is available so that potential customers can see how this works.

2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin in the classroom, yes or no and why? on: January 08, 2017, 04:31:05 PM
This is for a personal writing project I'm working on. I imagine that Bitcoin would be good for things like teaching things like math with decimals ("How many Satoshis do you need to get a tenth of a Bitcoin?", stuff like that), budgeting (Spend it on whatever you want, but when it's gone, it's gone), or even a little bit of IT / programming stuff like how cryptography works. What do you guys think of this?
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Feedback wanted for future Bitcoin and Blockchain ebook. on: December 31, 2016, 05:47:41 PM
Working title is "Blockchain Space: How And Why Cryptocurrencies Fit Into The Space Age." I'm almost ready to get this published as an ebook, but before I do, I'd like to see if anyone spots any place where I'm being clear as mud. Thanks in advance. Smiley
4  Economy / Services / Will write for Bitcoin. on: July 18, 2016, 08:57:50 PM
If anyone needs any writing done, I can handle it for you. PM me so we can talk details or place an order here.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Presentation on cryptocurrencies accepted at the Mars Society conference. on: July 18, 2016, 07:46:33 PM


Basically what it boils down to is that I have everything but the Powerpoint pretty much ready to go and this is a chance to "sell" cryptocurrencies to the Mars crowd. Advice would be appreciated. Remember, I'll have to make this about the Martian economy.
6  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Decentralized AirBnB and Uber -- somebody's really working on it! on: April 27, 2016, 12:50:00 AM
Called Fermat. Basically, it uses decentralized Blockchain technology for services similar to what AirBnB and Uber provide. http://www.forbes.com/sites/laurashin/2016/04/26/catch-a-ride-without-uber-book-a-room-without-airbnb-thats-fermat-vision/#1a3dbff9a2b3
7  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / UN Will Use Blockchain to Fight Obesity on: April 01, 2016, 03:02:04 PM
UN Will Use Blockchain to Fight Obesity Good idea? Or bad? Might encourage the purchase of more potatoes and less potato chips, anyhow, but what if people want to stock up because they're into disaster preparedness or they don't like grocery shopping?
8  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Disney is hiring. on: March 30, 2016, 05:38:21 PM
Disney is hiring a "Disney Private Blockchain Intern" to develop a private security blockchain. http://www.financemagnates.com/cryptocurrency/news/disney-develops-private-blockchain-security-control/
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / You heard the president. GET CRACKING. on: March 13, 2016, 12:07:14 AM
Obama Calls on Tech Leaders to Make Online Voting a Reality. But of course we already have an idea of how to do this, amirite?
10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Arizona Congressman expressed support for Bitcoin! on: March 06, 2016, 07:29:56 PM
At the first-ever DC Blockchain Summit hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, Arizona congressman David Schweikert (R-AZ) has expressed his support for Bitcoin. What he said was, "This is going to create a revolution. It's so much more than moving microcurrency." http://www.coindesk.com/dc-blockchain-summit-2016/
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Competing with Visa in ability to handle X transactions per second... on: March 06, 2016, 07:26:05 PM
The TL;DR of this article on NewsBTC is that Bitcoin will have to be able to handle tens of thousands of transactions per second if it wants to seriously compete with credit cards. Increasing the block size may not be enough with a 10-minute block time and, as we saw with the recent issue with some transactions not getting processed very fast, the transaction fees are also a concern. Of course it would be unfair to blame "greedy" miners when mining hardware is expensive and so is the electricity required to run them. Just something to think about.
12  Other / Off-topic / Is cash outdated? on: March 02, 2016, 02:28:59 AM
As usual, they get some things right and other things wrong and I think they stole a few ideas from Bitcoin. But instead of treating cash like a scapegoat, what they should be doing is switching to a more genuine "digital cash" system. You know, like a cryptocurrency or something. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/feb/26/ecuador-digital-currency-dollar-rafael-correa
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / "I want to be able to vote online..." on: March 01, 2016, 03:39:50 PM
...says one of my Facebook friends. Of course I had to tell him that this might be possible in the near future if the government implements Blockchain technology for voting and post a link to a video that explains how it works. If you're American, you might know that some people have been trying to throw up the smokescreen that efforts to fight voter fraud is somehow racist and the Blockchain could make a decent compromise that wouldn't really care about anything other than whether you meet the qualifications to vote. Some states are starting to talk about automatically registering people to vote (and I think California's doing it) when they're qualified and the Blockchain could do that just by pulling from citizenship and birth records that establish American citizenship.
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / So Cryptsy's CEO predicted this would happen. on: February 27, 2016, 01:57:17 AM
According to a Florida divorce court, anyhow. What I'd like to know is how he thought Cryptsy members wouldn't be ticked... http://www.coindesk.com/court-cryptsy-ceo-predicted-exchange-failure/
15  Other / Politics & Society / Two things that may be unstoppable: Donald Trump and Bitcoin. on: February 26, 2016, 08:24:05 PM
At this point, I'd say use Bitcoin whenever and wherever possible. Accept Bitcoin and your favorite altcoins if you run a business. That's how we're going to survive The Donald. http://cointelegraph.com/news/why-donald-trump-and-bitcoin-are-both-unstoppable
16  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Ethereum has been declared "self-sufficient for 4.5 years" on: February 25, 2016, 08:42:04 PM
Basically, Microsoft is very interested in integrating Ethereum "Blockchain as a Service" into Azure, BoostVC is investing in Ethereum-based startups, there's a mobile wallet called Jaxx and the price is on the rise.
17  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Biometrics + Blockchain on: February 24, 2016, 02:34:56 AM
Mastercard wants to replace passwords with selfies. This is something we should be looking into if we're really serious about end client security when a lot of us probably have Bitcoin on our Android device in the hope of paying for a purchase with it.
18  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / I made a pizza guy laugh today. on: February 24, 2016, 12:18:13 AM
He was delivering to the neighbor and, while he waited for them to answer the doorbell, he asked me if I heard of this nifty little thing called Bitcoin. I couldn't resist telling him the Bitcoin pizza story and told him that I'd also used it to order pizza delivery before. But it's good to see that Bitcoin is starting to get out there more.
19  Economy / Services / [FOR HIRE] As usual ... will write for Bitcoin. on: February 19, 2016, 02:43:13 AM
My price is $6 per 500 words -- sorry but I'll have to be firm on this to make it worth my time. Can do most topics, but the fact that I dumped Titcoin as a payment option should tell you something. Fastest way to get my attention is to PM me or place an order.
20  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / IBM and Microsoft unroll The Hyperledger. on: February 17, 2016, 08:57:13 PM
And if this new IBM/Microsoft partnership turns it into the Blockchain equivalent of the Web browser which shall remain nameless, I might get a few people to help me come up with my own version. Here's the details.
