How can you put your Bitcoin to good use? In so many ways! One opportunity that you have to consider today is donating to the BitGive Foundation’s Water Project Campaign. The Water Project recently began accepting Bitcoin and focuses on delivering clean water to Sub Saharan Africa. As a 501(c)(3) organization, the Water Project seeks to build a foundation in communities in need of a sustainable water supply. You can be apart of this project. Most of us simply take our running faucets and clean water for granted, but many do not have access to clean drinking water. I agree with the Water Project that, “clean water saves lives.” Donating even 5 USD in BTC can and will truly make […]

The Endorsements Billionaire entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, whose Virgin Galactic airlines was the first to accept bitcoins for space flight, recently described bitcoin as “the pioneer of a global currency” in an interview in the April issue of Delta’s SKY Magazine. Branson clearly believes in bitcoin. Not only is he accepting it, but he’s invested in it as well. But his comments indicate that he does not believe bitcoin will be the ultimate winner in the cryptocurrency wars. “It may not be the perfect global currency of the future yet, but it’s the pioneer of a global currency,” Branson said. He joins other tech giants in his assessment. “The Foundation is involved in digital money but unlike Bitcoin it would […]

Sports gambling in America is big business. It is also, largely, illegal. According to the National Gambling Impact Study Commission, nearly $400 billion is wagered on sports by United States citizens during a given year, with only $3.5 billion of those bets being placed at legal books in Nevada. With only one state offering legal sports betting, how is it that U.S. citizens are able to gamble so much on games? While a significant portion of illegal gambling is still done in person, the internet has allowed the popularity of the pastime to soar. Widely used sites such as Bovada and 5Dimes that are based outside of U.S. jurisdiction (Canada and Costa Rica, respectively) offer gamblers a way to get […]

A Japanese bankruptcy court declared this week that collapsed Bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox will not be permitted to reorganize and therefore must enter liquidation. The court rejected Mt. Gox’s petition (similar to a Chapter 7 filing in the United States) on the grounds that the plan of reorganization submitted by Mt. Gox is unlikely to be successful. Moreover, the court claimed that CEO Mark Karpeles has lost the confidence of creditors and customers whose cooperation would be necessary to carry out the reorganization under Japanese law. Liquidation comes as unwelcome news to Mt. Gox’s customers, many of whom have held on to the possibility of a full recovery of lost funds. Since liquidation involves selling or otherwise distributing all of […]

A major problem with adapting Bitcoin as one’s main currency is the difficulty in making trust-less transactions. Don’t get me wrong; the technology and network behind Bitcoin aren’t the problem. It’s the disconnect between the network of people that two parties may share that can create concern. There is still an issue with making a transaction with an individual especially if they are shipping you a physical device like an electronic device where there is no certainty they are trustworthy without using a commonly trusted user or 3rd party as an escrow. There is a great solution to helping make trustworthy connections within the Bitcoin community and it’s called Bitcorati. This website aims to provide services similar to what […]

I just think it's great. I'm a member of Club "O" which only cost me $5 for a year. Free shipping on everything, and 5% back on every purchase. Usually the items I need are cheaper on Overstock than other sites. Things like electronics, home appliances, etc etc. I noticed silly things like candles are crazy expensive so I'm guessing that's where they make a lot of money. I just feel like I have similar thinkings to the founder of...

Written by Ivan Raszl,GM of MediaBistro, blogger at Bitcoin Owl and associate at Inside Bitcoins Conference. Originally posted at http://bitcoinowl.com/everything-starting-fall-place-bitcoin Bitcoin is a fairly new phenomena. Nobody at this stage can be sure if it will survive its infancy. But, if we look at the major issues and opportunities surrounding this new technology the signs seem to be all aligning for an exciting two years. Developing world joining Bitcoin‘s adoption in the West may be considered slow considering the advantages it offers. And there is a good reason for this. Most westerners in general do not need Bitcoin. We have a fairly good banking system and we can afford the costs associated with it. We accept the yearly $100-200 bank […]

Following the latest statement released by Danny Brewster, CEO of Neo & Bee Ltd, we, the personnel involved at an executive level within Neo and Bee, feel it is appropriate and justified to make the following statement regarding the mistruths and outright lies being fed to investors, creditors and the public. In the interests of preserving the potential that the company can be turned around, we had remained silent on the matter up to this point. The senior management team would like to extend their deepest ...

If you can understand the organization of ants, you can understand MaidSafe. Alone, by itself, an ant is both vulnerable and easily marginalized. Yet when working with the rest of the colony, ants with roughly the same petite attributes can take down larger prey, clear paths and protect the mound from disasters (both natural and man-made). I spoke with David Irvine, the CEO of MaidSafe and he used this type of analogy to describe how the decentralized attributes of MaidSafe works. MaidSafe bills itself as a wholly decentralized internet wherein it acts as a decentralized storage platform available to anyone globally. Over the past 8 years, the team has concocted a cauldron of algorithms which harmonize, orchestrate and control individual […]
