1  Economy / Services / Looking for experienced developer to work on enterprise-level blockchain project on: March 12, 2018, 01:06:48 PM
Good Day,

I am the co-founder of a blockchain project called Helium and am looking for a part time / full time developer who can assist my current team in helping not only complete the launch of the blockchain but work with us afterwards to help maintain the chain itself. Helium is an economic fork of Spreadcoin and will be a technical fork of a codebase yet to be determined (Dash / PIVX / Crown). There is a blockchain snapshot taken of the Spreadcoin blockchain which you will be required to work with in lockstep with our other technical team members as well as handling various other duties like shoring up or creating Windows / MAC / Linux wallets among other work.

Payment will be in the coin itself and there is a potential for some Bitcoin depending on the nature of the work and skill level and portfolio you can bring to the table. Please contact me directly if you are interested as the project is now moving forward in the coming weeks. This project has real-world Enterprise implications so adding something like Helium on to your resume has the potential to catapult your career into the stratosphere of digital currency.

- Jason

9  Economy / Speculation / The true scarcity of a Bitcoin on: February 15, 2015, 10:11:16 PM
Good Day Bitcoin faithful,

Part of the beauty of Bitcoin is the hard limit of twenty one (21) million Bitcoins created as dictated by the protocol. This inherently gives the cryptocurrency a level of scarcity in the event mass global adoption takes place. With over seven billion humans plus the advent of autonomous agents, there will be a select few individuals who will be able to own more than a single Bitcoin in the not-so-distant-future. Bear in mind that the following is written with the assumption Bitcoin will continue to grow in global adoption, giving impetus to the following question:

How many Bitcoins exist today?

The obvious, short answer is: "There is no way to know", which is correct. This is an exercise in speculation, however it is one that intrigues me and thus I will approach it by looking at the number of coins permanently lost. By 2025, there is a strong chance most countries will be involved in Bitcoin to some degree. As traditional fiat currency economists began to follow and dissect the currency as they would any other, developing a commonly agreed upon average # of Bitcoin lost and therefore not part of currency supply will be a reality. I can foresee Central Banks dedicating some attention to this in the future as it is a deflationary event. To this day, I still have friends and acquaintances that I will poke and prod to ensure they are using basic security standards, as anything more complex is out of their scope for the time being. One such acquaintance lost a modest sum of Bitcoin recently due to bypassing basic security measures such as backing up a wallet.dat file. While these occurrences are going to become less common due to the increase in value, awareness and availability to more robust solutions, it is clear we still have some time before this type of news becomes a rarity in itself.

Due to the higher volume of Bitcoin issued via the protocol in the early years coupled with a non-existent and eventually low value, it is logical to assume that the largest amounts of Bitcoin lost were done so in the first few years (2009-2011). Today we sit at roughly thirteen point eight two (13.82) million Bitcoin issued via the protocol, with a price of $235 USD/BTC. For sake of example, if we assume that one percent (1%) of all currently issued Bitcoin has been lost, we have a total of one hundred and thirty-eight thousand, two hundred Bitcoin (138.2 K) that are out of the currency supply forever. That equates to a USD total of $32,477,000.00m (32.47 million). That is a sizeable amount of purchasing power in today's terms. Some questions that come to mind:

At what price do you personally feel Bitcoin will hold enough value to society that the vast majoirty of Bitcoin private keys will be kept securely, making lost Bitcoin virtually a non-existent occurrence?

What percent of the current Bitcoin currency supply do you feel is permanently lost?
 (a 1% figure was used above for illustration)

Are there any well known and publicized losses of Bitcoin from the past that can be used to build up and towards a generally accepted percentage?

If nothing else, this can provide some level of distraction and informative discussion whilst the now fourteen month long bear market roars on. Keep in mind that the average individual who has heard of Bitcoin is not likely to be aware that a meaningful # of Bitcoin have already been permanently lost, or that Bitcoin can be permanently lost to begin with. When viewing this through the lens of a hard cap of twenty-one million Bitcoin by roughly the year 2110-2140 range, the Bitcoin you hold today is an extremely valuable commodity indeed. Thanks for playing and here is to a lively Spring Bull Market Breakout!

18  Other / Beginners & Help / Cold Storage scenario on: March 27, 2013, 10:45:09 PM
Hey all,

Relatively new to BTC, simply taken back by this acceptance, the world has been ready for this for some time it feels like. Part of what intrigues me the most about BTC is it's cryptographic nature, bringing an inherent level of security to the currency. Continuing the security theme, I would like to get a point clear in my mind regarding Cold Storage. Exactly how does one easily retrieve coins from that offline wallet and bring them out of cold storage using the private key?

If one was to generate several offline wallets and send their BTC evenly to those wallets (5) and keep the private keys for each in cold storage for X amount of time, how would they retrieve the coins using the private keys? I did not see an option in the Bitcoin client to import a private key, is there a service that does this for you? And can this be done from anywhere in the world, such that if installed BTC on a new PC and wanted to get your BTC from cold storage into this newly generated wallet, how the heck would you do it?

I understand and fully embrace the idea of keeping your virtual currency stored away in cold storage, I am still a little bit murky on the different methods on how to retrieve them easily.

Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this!
