Rootstock Announces Release of Ginger Testnet

RSK Labs has announced the open source release of their Ginger test network for smart contracts. Presenting at digital currency conference Consensus 2017, RSK promised to add smart contract functionality to the main bitcoin blockchain along with greater scalability and additional revenue streams for miners.

Rootstocks smart contract network will feature a two-way cryptographic peg to the main bitcoin blockchain, providing a platform that can scale up to 2.000 tx/second on chain and 20.000 tx/second off chain. The core innovation of the Rootstock technology will be smart contract functionality. RSK Labs is intending on introducing a Turing-complete scripting language which will allow decentralized applications to be programmed on the bitcoin network.
64  Bitcoin / Project Development / Looking To Build A Block Explorer on: March 10, 2017, 08:34:54 PM
We are looking to create a bitcoin block explorer using bitcore.

Seeing that a full node would require around around 8GB of memory and about 200GB of disk space available to store the Bitcoin blockchain plus additional database information, we plan on building it on Amazon Web Services. We could then have an API that connects to the actual website.

We are looking for someone who has extensive experience operating a full node and preferably someone who has built a block explorer elsewhere.

The block explorer will be built on the homepage on

If you are interested to know more, you can leave a comment here or send us a personal message.

Thank you.

If you were a startup business, how would you compete with Poloniex?

What kind of services would you offer that are not currently offered by them?

Would you create an exchange or go in a completely different direction?

67  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Which Is The Better Tagline? on: December 19, 2016, 09:25:08 PM
We are conducting market research among the bitcoin community to see which tagline resonates with them most.

Our products are education based, focusing on programming and investing courses.

If you have a proposal for a tagline we can use, leave it below.

Thank you.
68  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Which Bitcoin Course Would You Be Most Interested In Taking? on: December 17, 2016, 08:52:20 PM
I would be interested in studying several of them.  Costs would be a factor for many I suppose.  I would seek clarification from you as to YOUR distinction between investing and trading in BTC.  I understand the differences in the two words but they seem inextricably connected in my crypto world.  Not trying to engage in a semantic fight, I just want to learn all I can about this industry.  Staying tuned.

Thank you for the feedback. Yes, in terms of a trading and investing course much of the content would naturally overlap. The reason we included both terms is to simply gauge which word is more attractive for the audience.

We already have a bitcoin economics/investing course but we would like to get a better idea of what exactly the industry is interested in.

Watch the accompanying YouTube video.

I was watching your video. I assume it is you in the video and hence asking the following Q. Your background looks like a resident area and there is huge smoke coming out from the top of few buildings. So, is not this type of air pollution in resident area prohibited in your state ?

p.s. Sorry for being off-topic. But could not stay calm by checking live environmental hazard.

The video is no longer available but it would have been filmed in downtown Toronto. There is no danger of an environmental hazard. Thank you for your concern.
71  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Inside New York's Attempt to Regulate Bitcoin on: December 17, 2016, 07:54:26 PM
Here is the Complete list of Latest In & Outs of BitLincense:

Companies Applying for the BitLicense in New York:

Xapo Inc.

Ceasing Operations in New York:
Genesis Mining
Shape Shift
BTC Guild

8 in - 13 out

I strongly doubt the authorities will rethink the current regulations.

A large number of exchanges/businesses have already applied for licences to the authorities will not be concerned about the few who packed up and left.

I think you got it mixed.
It's a few companies who applied and a large number that packed up and left. Wink

Would be interesting to see an updated list as I think the startup community in the NY bitcoin scene has been hit even harder since 2015.
72  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Could time itself ever act as a currency? on: December 17, 2016, 07:47:20 PM
Time is the 4th dimension. Humans are 3 dimensional beings
scientificially we can only perceive a part of the 4th dimension because we are 3 dimensional beings.

Google flatlanders and string theory Smiley

Btw. Gotta watch that movie in the next few days so many people talking about it lately and i didnt knew about since yesterday
That's what I'm talking about. Time is beyond us. I'm familiar with the stringy theory, although not with 'flatlanders'. The movie is was good, although the ratings might not be the best for it.
I don't see any other way of humans (as we are now) using time for anything that is.

How can you say humans are beyond time when we are clearly subject to the effects of time? Also, couldn't it be argued that there is far more to what makes a human than its biologically constraint existence and therefore we are indeed aware of our infinite timeless nature?

Worldwide, approximately 2.5 billion people lack a formal account at a financial institution. Access to affordable financial services is linked to overcoming poverty, reducing income disparities, and increasing economic growth.

Nice price for a giveaway, only how we know that the winner will be chosen on a provably fair way. Will you use some script to know who the winner is?

We use a random number generator script that is correlated with each subscribers unique ID.
75  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Bitcoin Will End the Nation State on: December 17, 2016, 07:15:20 PM
I think the nation-state will simply end Bitcoin if cryptocurrency becomes too much of a threat to the central banks.  They can easily regulate it out of existence, or simply ban it outright and impose absurd penalties for holding BTC. 

Tough for democracies to do this without justification.

I think Moriarty is overestimating the power of the nation state. Not everything is within the governments jurisdiction (or possibility) of regulating.

Attempting to regulate bitcoin through judicial legislation will be as futile as regulating the direction of the wind.
76  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Has Redefined Money on: December 17, 2016, 07:11:04 PM
Bitcoin is a computer virus that will continue to spread until it is as socially accepted as email is today. In this post, I will explain not only why this rapidly expanding computer network has changed the paradigm on what defines money but why the blockchain represents a historical image of the digital economy and provides a record of any past activity due to the nature of peer-to-peer timestamp verification.

78  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Bitcoin Will Kill The Income Tax on: December 06, 2016, 10:18:24 PM
As the age of cryptocurrency comes into full force, it will facilitate a subversively viable taxation avoidance strategy for many of the technically savvy users of peer-to-peer payment systems. In doing so, cryptocurrency use will act to erode the tax revenue base of national jurisdictions, and ultimately, reposition taxation as a voluntary, pay-for-performance function. In this post, I cover some of the benefits such a strategy will have for cryptocurrency investors, why our notion of taxation is ripe for disruption, and why cryptocurrency taxation is enabled by default.
