I'm tired of trying to read news about Bitcoin and come to find out some dude in his basement copied Bitcoin and now he has some "great new idea!" on how to use Bitcoin's core technology (without using bitcoins).

Unless you're writing a technical piece, there's no need to mention the blockchain. Just don't do it.

When is the last article you read about the Internet or some Internet service that mentioned TCP/IP? Unless it's a technical article, you won't see TCP/IP anywhere. Even in the early days of the Internet it wasn't brought up when describing the Internet, so why worry about the Bitcoin protocol unless that is key to your article.

I see what you mean. I looked up blockcoin ( I though it might be an interesting domain name), and I found this.

blockcoin
Information on blockcoin
Trade volume Less than 25 BTC
Number of confirmed trades 2 …with 1 different partners
Feedback score 100 %
Account created 11 months, 2 weeks ago
Last seen 3 weeks, 1 day ago
Language English
Email Verified 11 months, 2 weeks ago
Phone number NOT verified
Trust Trusted by 1 person

Hardly seems worth the effort of setting it up. I'm sure I could get more than 1 different partner ( good job she's gone to the garden centre Smiley ).

We need Blockchain that is immutable but we also need the capability to reverse `fraudulent` transactions.

We want to make sure only `authorized individuals` can transact on our blockchain.

Please whole world come and mine our super private blockchain without any reward. It's so much better than Bitcoin! And backed by real value unlike Bitcoin!
