is ransoming the article Bitcoin for Individual-to-Individual Transactions and Community Trade
by Vitalik Buterin for .50 BTC in a business model experiment. This is because the magazine have trouble raising enough revenues via publishing advertising to pay current expense, in the form of writers and cartoonists.
Donate .50 BTC to this address 1JYXS3dpHjk9MT7U6oXNKwfVeubW41iWkfTime period and method for consideration of publication:
It will be checked via http://blockexplorer.com/address/1JYXS3dpHjk9MT7U6oXNKwfVeubW41iWkf
For me, If it is found to exceed or meet .50 BTC in the time period of 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM(time before I work), I will publish this article.
For the author of said ransomed article, if it is found to exceed or meet .50 BTC, he is authorized to publish it.
It will continues to be checked until .50 BTC are donated. Implication for Success of Experiment:
If successful, then it will be on my agenda to start development of a fully automated ransoming system right after the completion of the comics section and the news service.
Also, donating to ransoms will be more attractive in the future.There may be discounts and prizes for donating certain level of bitcoin to the magazine. For now, I need to do this experiment to validates the business model and save Bitcoin Weekly from insolvency.
If you love Bitcoin Weekly's works and would like Bitcoin Weekly to continues publication, please consider a token donation.
Thanks in advance, for all your support and business.
