Jet Fuel Can't Melt The Blockchain

Every so often a technology completely changes the way we conduct business.

In today's world, that technology is the bitcoin blockchain.

During the next few decades, we can expect this technology to be a catalyst for change as we use the blockchain to store and share informational assets on a global basis.

Seriously this is not a giveaway but a form of lottery whereby the winner will still be the owner  Grin Grin Grin and the facebook fan page have increased.
You are correct, it is more of a lottery.

The more each user shares the page, and the more users they themselves enter into the draw, the higher their chances of winning will be.
Is this supposed to mean something or is it just bullshit words to try and make your page more public?
The more mutual friends who you have invited, the more +1 entries you receive.

When it exists in the private domain, money itself becomes a product of innovation. Unlike public, central bank controlled money, bitcoin and the emergence of cryptocurrencies shift the function of money to the private domain where the market demands continuous innovation. The power of choice given to the consumer by private money, allows users to choose which form of money to use in daily expenditures. This power of choice afforded to the consumer by way of a private cryptocurrency market, will enable a profound change in the way people view money and a higher overall quality of money.

Bitcoin is probably the best form of money that you're going to be able to get in today's day and age, and that's kind of saying alot to be honest. We have digital, open-sourced and community-reviewed money worth more in a technical manner than what is issued by our governments. At what point did it become this bad?

Perhaps when we backed government money not with gold or previous metals but debt itself.
89  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Re: Is Bitcoin Sound Money? on: September 24, 2016, 05:01:25 PM
The big difference between gold and bitcoin is you can't spend gold only convert them to fiat and spend

But bitcoin is accepted as currency by many business so bit coin has an added advantage of spending them directly.

so gold is just investment and bitcoin can be used as investment and as currency like any other fiat currencies.

This is a solid point. Almost no one accepts gold outright for payment, but they do accept bitcoin. It would seem in that regard that bitcoin is more of a pure medium of exchange.

Bitcoin is "digital gold".

In a world where the current demographic is growing up with a smartphone in hand, what will they choose - bitcoin, gold, or fiat?

Interesting. When will the network be ready to go online?

Will it be accessible by anyone or do you need a membership or will it be based of some alt coin or some other requirement?

What recourse do people have if transactions turn out not to be instantaneous?

Speed doesn't often come without a cost, so what will transaction costs be?

Will there be a cap on transaction amounts? Perhaps the size of the transaction impacts the speed factor.

Obviously I'd love more information.

Will erasing the confirmation of the bitcoin transaction for making is more safest and instant.

Thanks for leaving the site link.

We also wrote up a research article on the Lightning Network.

The bitcoin vs gold debate has raged on in investment circles since bitcoin has entered mainstream discussion among increasingly interested investors. Gold has been used as a form of currency and trade for thousands of years, and certainly has a track record for reliability and preservation of wealth. However, as the newcomer onto the scene, bitcoin may be the kind of financial and technological breakthrough to to challenge gold as the monetary kingpin.

Early on in its life cycle, seasoned investors began questioning the legitimacy of bitcoin value and debating how such a commodity could hold intrinsic value. What differentiates bitcoin from a mere collectible and what makes it similar to precious metal assets such as gold or silver? Among many circles, especially gold bugs and older-generation investors, bitcoin was not considered a valid investment up until very recently.

Which factors of bitcoin instill this validity of investment?

92  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Lightning Network Could Scale Bitcoin on: September 23, 2016, 09:52:20 PM
The days of near-instantaneous payment seem like something of the science fiction genre. Yet, recent undertakings in the bitcoin industry are working on solutions which may allow billions of transactions per second to be made in a model similar to the routing system employed by today’s internet infrastructure. If bitcoin is capable of scaling to billions of transactions per second by using this routing system, network scaling issues would no longer persist and a new velocity of money could empower considerable economic growth.


One of the solutions currently in development for scaling the bitcoin network in order to accommodate more transactions is known as the Lighting Network. The Lightning Network proposal holds that millions or even billions of transactions could be made per second by routing payments through the blockchain rather than storing data for each individual change in ownership. With this type of payment infrastructure, parties could send transactions to each other without requiring every movement of money to be recorded in the bitcoin blockchain, potentially reducing the burden of current network payload.

The creators behind the lightning network, Joseph Poon and Tadge Dryja, envision a system where supernodes are charged with verifying large groups of transactions to the main bitcoin blockchain. These supernodes would act as “minimally trusted intermediaries” and be the custodians between the blockchain and lightning payment channels.

I have an account we use on this forum for business use (rather than personal use), but I cannot reset the password because the email never arrives.

I know the account username and email, only not the password.

Could a mod please PM me so we can get access to our account?

Thank you.

When an individual makes a transaction on the bitcoin network, no actual currency is moved. That is, no file has moved. No commodity or asset has moved. No private or public key has moved. Rather, the only thing which changes is the percentage of the blockchain ledger which User A & B claim control over. When a transaction occurs in the realm of bitcoin, the image of the blockchain is altered. Nothing ever changes but the composition of this blockchain record.

The blockchain is a recorded snapshot of the bitcoin digital economy.

Money is now an image, rather than something which can be separated from the system itself. This image of money is being constructed, altered, and verified by the thousands of machines acting as miners across the globe, and it’s a composition on public display for all to see. The miners are the painters of this network composition. The users, the brush and strokes.

Good luck!

I just got one seat through the promo code which worked for me just now thank you. I watched the Unit 3 "The Bitcoin Transaction Visualized" and from the number of views seems that only 8 people has seen that and I think there are more tickets available.

Yes, the videos are relatively new and we have just opened the course to the public.
