Re: Unbeleavable

I've seen these reports before ... usually they are targetted at MNCs who lack the time to do in-depth research of a market ... this is distinct from the technology. The goal is to basically reassure the CxO that they are not doing anything silly by jumping into a segment that they are clueless abou...

TechReview of privacy

They are proposing a new protocol . However, the main concepts can be adapted for namecoin, namely a unique URI (which can be .bit) and an audit of every access (potentially namecoin spends) and since hte block-chain is transparent, audit tools which trawl the block-chain to figure out classes of pe...

Re: Proof of "Burn"

According to Singapore authorities (http://www.coindesk.com/singapore-government-how-we-intend-tax-bitcoin/) if the bitcoins are used to exchange for virtual goods or services within the virtual gaming world, as a concession, the supply of bitcoins will not be taxed until the bitcoins are exchanged ...

Re: Proof of "Burn"

Sorry but my mind is a little bit slower so i don't understand what does it have Hiroshima with Counterparty. And why should we blame somebody who is burning Bitcoins or Namecoins ? The remaining coins will have more value. So in that sense they are doing a community work in the interest of the oth...

Proof of "Burn"

Looking over the new exchange Counterparty https://www.counterparty.co/why-proof-of-burn/ they claim that by setting aside a block of public keys, that "chance of anyone guessing the private key to spend the burnt BTC at that address is the same as the chance of guessing any private key for any othe...

Entropy Generator Dongle

A colleague is about to launch a kick-starter program for an entropy generator dongle (OpenHardware) ... literally in that you can see the chip (transparent cover) and the code is open source so you can tell visually if any tampering. But if people want specific FPGA code blocks, I'd be interested i...

Re: Madsafe(safecoin), a new concurrent or a new application

I also heard the MaidSafe creator in an interview (On Declare Your Independence radio show) guarantee a huge return on investment for miners. Not smart. The radio host said "So if I get a bunch of computers and mine this, I'll get rich?" MaidSafe's creator (the Scottish guy) replied "Absolutely" or...

Re: Dot-Bit on ANY Browser: MeowBit for Windows

And school does suck. Education does not. You can get an education without school. School produces compliment robots, and most schools are now run like prisons.

Re: Great article that mentions Namecoin - the new internet

Intriguing ... before whenever a group was dissatisfied, the courses of action were a) townhall meeting b) gossip-mongering c) assassination and d) splitting the group. The 4th option (exile or worse) appears to be more doable if you can take the resources with you ... in this case the article talks...
