Rather Good article about bitcoin and its use for online poker:

Quote from: Headline
Bryan Micon, site pro at the Bitcoin-only poker room Seals with Clubs and head honcho of the always-controversial DonkDown forums and podcast, argues why the digital currency is a game-changer for online poker.

Random Quotes:

Quote
People barely understand me when I talk these days.
I speak a language of SHA 256, BitInstant, public-private key cryptography, giga-hashes per second, and I’m considering building a substantial mining rig to support the network and always be able to keep a copy of the block-chain.

Yup, I’m speaking Bitcoin language again. My twitter is updated to “Drank the #bitcoin kool-aid” and I religiously preach it on every DonkDown radio show. Most times I leave the house I have my bitcoin logo pin attached near my physical wallet, a subtle poke at the duality of man, sir. To say that Bitcoin has consumed my life is an understatement.

Quote
“Bitcoin is one of the most amazing feats of human technical achievement I have witnessed in my lifetime.”

Quote
“Bitcoin is not a payment solution, it’s not the latest hack around the traditional banking system—it’s a new currency. It’s a game changer.”

Quote
“You don’t have to trust a Bitcoin poker site as much—just withdraw your entire balance after every session to a trusted wallet, possibly your own computer hard drive.”

Seems like Micon is really making some news in the online poker world.

All previous versions of currency will no longer be supported as of this update

I'm a relatively known guy in the poker world, and I've been studying bitcoin for the past 1.5+ years, and it's great for the recently launched affiliate program to get the SealsWithClubs name out there.  If any poker-facing media wants to understand what we are doing over a Seals I'll usually talk to them until they stop me, sometimes hours.

I'm flying FPV race drones these days. Check out my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/MiconFPV
