Looks good, will pass on to my noob friends even tho most noobs tend to learn faster from videos.

We have also recently started a YouTube channel which has had some good early reception.

Good stuff! Someone just recommended the following video to me and I'm happy to see it's already listed on your channel.
Bitcoin vs. Political Power: The Cryptocurrency Revolution - Stefan Molyneux at TNW Conference

That video hits on some of the key points as to why I first got into bitcoin in the first place. Powerful talk by Molyneux that is SO SO SO underrated!

Clever title, shall we coin the acronym "IoM"?

Downloaded!

That's actually not a bad idea. IoM

Hey guys,

I am making available my book I recently completed on bitcoin.

I've crafted this book for the person interested in the economic-political implications of digital currency, the type of person keeping a close pulse on the developments within bitcoin and how it will radically alter the makeup of our society. I truly believe that we will see some monumental shifts in our economies in the coming decade. The people who have tactfully positioned themselves, like chess pieces of the board, will benefit tremendously. Most people will not.

Bitcoin: An Internet of Money is a social-political analysis of bitcoin, where it may lead us to in the future, and how best to prepare yourself for profit and pleasure!

If you use the code 'HONEYBADGER' you will get 20% off! And yes, we do certainly accept bitcoin.

189  Bitcoin / Project Development / Diginomics Wallet - Looking for Developers [Ethereum] on: March 04, 2015, 06:23:43 PM
Diginomics Wallet is a bitcoin application built on the Ethereum platform for sending payments via email without requiring the administration of traditional wallet addresses. Usability of bitcoin has been limited to the degree of understanding by new participants and one main factor is the 34-character string which designates sender and receiver.

We bring the application of sending bitcoin payments to and from email aliases instead of bitcoin wallet addresses. In order to do so, we propose to extend the payment protocol to BIP70 standards. The BIP70 protocol is designed add additional features to Bitcoin by replacing the ubiquitous Bitcoin address with small files that can encode more complex parameters. It specifies a format for payment requests, payments and payment acks that flow directly between the sender and receiver of funds.

In order to make the application available to internet users, we broadcast our server from a full node running the Diginomics-Ethereum Blockchain. Instead of requiring a downloadable wallet client, we aim to make the Diginomics Wallet available through a web browser. By doing this, users can hold a private key issued only to them, while retaining access to a webwallet.

Bitcoin Addresses

1X87ccSNptPLw2WezGiT6DXyRnyHe6iCev
SHA-256 Hash Security
Very Difficult to Memorize
Not User-Friendly

Email Addresses

user@example.com
Short, Easy to Memorize, Personal
Not Entirely Secure

Application Process

Send Bitcoin to user@example.com
Diginomics Wallet Houses IP Address of [example.com]
Server Verifies IP Request for [user]
Diginomics Wallet Responds With Payment to [user@example.com] associated account

Extending BIP70

Extending the BIP70 payment protocol to include email addresses would all users to benefit from the familiarity and usability of sending bitcoin by email. Users still trust the server, but a Diginomics full node is completely transparent and unable to ‘cheat’ the system. The BIP70 protocol also promises to attach strings for messaging and the compatibility of email makes the prospect of emailing bitcoin a viral one.

Potential Solution

Users Register With Public Key
User Signs Request With Public Key
Server Verifies User Signature
Server Signs Request

Properties

Protection: Server Cannot ‘Cheat’
Possibly Compatible With Current BIP70

We are looking for a software engineer hacker type to collaborate on with this project. Remote work is acceptable. We have registered investments in the Ethereum crowdsale. Compensation will be primarily through equity. This is an early-founder position.

191  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: The Blockchain: Evolution of the Corporation on: March 01, 2015, 09:06:24 PM
Corporations are largely automated by computer systems, this is true. To say corporations do not need human to operate is too extreme, and to say blockchain tech comes into it is also abstract.

The core of blockchain tech is an open trustless system. Corporations have used large closed database system for a long time. They have no incentive to make the database open and trustless. I can only see the blockchain/miner relationship as a analogy for a flater corporation hierarchy.
 

These 'large closed database systems' you speak of are completely different from a blockchain database. The blockchain is a network with an attached incentive to contribute to it continuously, a traditional database is not. A traditional database is housed and accessed by one institution. The blockchain is not.

The blockchain is an evolution of the corporate nucleus.
192  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Blockchain Is The New Corporation on: March 01, 2015, 07:47:58 AM
20th century business models were characterized by ownership rather than access, and centralized over decentralized decision making. The bitcoin blockchain economic model does away with all these conventional notions and provides us the blueprint for a 21st century digital paradigm – non-exclusive, decentralized, autonomous corporations. This type of corporate model is fundamentally different in its makeup and functionality because -- among other things -- it is independent of human intervention while simultaneously owned by no single party.

193  Bitcoin / Project Development / Integrating a TippingBot Into a Simple Machines Forum (SMF) on: February 27, 2015, 05:27:36 PM
We are looking into integrating tipping functionality, much like a ChangeTip bot, into the Diginomics Forum.

Because the database of a SMF is totally different from social media -- say Google+, Reddit, or Facebook, how would one go about doing this?

We had the idea to create a bot account, say 'TipBot' and have a function where everytime it is mentioned by a user in a post, and a money value is defined, it will tip this to another user.

However, this would require a whole infrastructure for tipping accounts, something we don't have but ChangeTip does.

How could one go about integrating ChangeTip into a forum community? Would ChangeTip need to create an API or is there some other way you could do it?

We are looking at collaborating with a few developers here to accomplish this project.
194  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Tipping May Be Bitcoin's Next Killer Application on: February 27, 2015, 03:58:40 PM
I like to use changetip because they have 0 fee and can be use for micro transaction

ChangeTip has 0% fee currently until you decide to move money our of their coffers.
195  Economy / Services / Looking for Bitcoin Writers on: February 26, 2015, 08:55:24 PM

196  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Tipping May Be Bitcoin's Next Killer Application on: February 26, 2015, 08:49:14 PM
The next killer application in bitcoin may just turn out to be micropayment tipping through social media and online communities. In what is increasingly being seen as a ‘tipping revolution‘ internet users are now using bitcoin to send small payments to businesses directly online for their work. This viral growth of the emerging digital tipping industry could very well be the next application in bitcoin and blockchain payment technology.

Why is tipping with digital currency a big deal?

Tipping allows for the very first time content creators to be compensated directly for their work on a micro-transactional level, something which analog payments systems were too rigid and slow to perform previously. Digital currency systems such as bitcoin however, operate with no intermediary businesses and only need to be registered through a ‘tipping network’.

ChangeTip who has grown to become one of the market leaders in the early bitcoin tipping industry in a span of less than 6 months for example, uses off-chain, and possibly soon, sidechain transactions to clear their inventories. Because of this, not every small tip needs to be recorded fully into the main bitcoin blockchain, but only references to the main network need to be made to ensure integrity among funds.

197  Other / Politics & Society / The Rise of Supranational Governance on: February 16, 2015, 07:27:53 PM

If we were to assume that eventually, some sort of world government configuration will take the place of individual, fragmented sovereign states, what would it look like and how would it operate? Will it be a communion of our wisest political leaders under one flag and all people agreeing upon the laws which govern in a democratic vote? Will we all tune in right around suppertime to watch the ‘president of the world’ elections and root for the party with which we most closely relate to? Will we finally be among a utopian society where true democracy is the staple ideology?

Quite simply, this picture hardly paints an accurate picture of what we have coming towards us.

More than anything, the average individual will do away with their notion of nationalism and adopt the ideology of a world citizen. A new supranational governance will take hold, one where individual rise above national boundaries. Not confided to artificial borders or boundaries, these individuals will have the opportunity to experience unprecedented wealth accumulation. Unlike any time before in history, they will be subversive to judicial taxation strategies due to the very nature of digital money which will continually offer alternatives for increased security, functionality, and anonymity – although it is quite likely these payment systems will be under surveillance to a degree previously unmatched.

1) The roman empire is an example of a similar structure that existed before fiat


The only difference is they are wearing Suits now instead of Togas......

Spot on gentleman. If you haven't already, I invite you to check out Stefan Molyneux's Bitcoin vs. Political Power. Quite possibly the best presentation describing the political-economic implications of bitcoin as a money system.

Let's break out of the loop.
199  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Don't Let Anyone Tell You Satoshi's Identity is NOT Important on: February 13, 2015, 07:48:05 PM
...

A new book, The Age of Cryptocurrency (2015, Paul Vigna and Michael J. Casey -- the two of them are Wall Street Journal reporters) is out and available at Barnes & Noble everywhere.  The book is good, but I will discuss that more elsewhere and later.

Vigna and Casey wrote several pages on the hunt for Satoshi's identity.  A number of people were thought of as possibly the man (?) himself.

Vigna & Casey also wrote that the Bitcoin community typically was against this search, arguing that we should leave him alone, respect his privacy.  And there is an excellent case for that.

But, the authors also are looking ahead, looking down the road.  To be accepted in a massive way by society, the masses must be convinced that BTC is legitimate and secure.  An anonymous founder does not inspire confidence among the masses...

A snippet from Vigna & Casey (emphasis mine):

"It might even be better for bitcoin if Satoshi's identity is eventually revealed.  Initially, the absence of an identifiable founder meant enforcement agents couldn't find Satoshi and shut down his fledgling project before it gained attraction.  Now it's a different phase.  More than six years into bitcoin's existence, with a global community formed around it, the project is looking to undertake the ultimate community expansion exercise and embrace the wide, all-encompassing "mainstream."  For that exercise, the lack of transparency over bitcoin's founding is a hindrance.  It feeds doubts in the minds of government officials and lawmakers, making friendly regulation that might smooth bitcoin's development a harder sell for cryptocurrency lobbyists.  The same goes for the general public.  Coming clean would put to bed conspiracy theories that bitcoin was created by the CIA or the NSA or the IMF, or that the whole thing is an elaborate scam."

That's a great excerpt, thank you for that.

Have you read their new book and if so, what did you think of it overall?

Satoshi Nakamoto set in motion the unraveling of the nation state

You sound like the kind of person who denounces the state as a legitimate authority.

So why then, do you then continually equate 'identity' with only government-approved identity?

I don't equate identity exclusively with government-approved social security numbers, birth certificates, etc.

I believe we should always have the option to go back to our original state, that of the identification with man and nothing more.
