#DeepWeb Lesson Number Five: How to Convert #Litecoins to #Bitcoins Easily #agorism

Image from bitcoinboard.net. Bitcoins require ASICs to mine these days, so outside of heading over to butterflylabs.com or kncminer.com and plunking down a fair bit of cash, how does one easily get Bitcoins? The answer is by mining Litecoins and converting them to Bitcoins. Mining Litecoins requires much less power in terms of hardware (for […]

My Visit to Azte.co Today @joonian @coindesk @blockchain #bitcoin #lovelondon #agorism #gloriousagoristfuture

Picture of the Azte.co storefront, taken by me 20140221. I read about Azte.co at coindesk.com, in this article. I posted about wanting to visit the store myself. I had originally planned to do so tomorrow (Saturday) but as I was walking my wife to the bus stop for her meeting anyway, I decided I’d go […]

Trends in #CyberSecurity for 2014 #bitcoin #litecoin #botcloud #deepweb #malware #bigdata

Picture from Northeastern.edu. I gave a talk at the Info Crime Summit in London yesterday, and identified what I think will be six trends in cybersecurity. I won’t provide the details here – I plan to outline those on my company’s blog – but I will provide a link to those posts on twitter. (You […]

New Bitcoin Shop Right Here in London! #bitcoin #lovelondon #agorism (h/t @joonian @coindesk)

Screenshot of azte.co logo from their website. There’s a place to by buy Bitcoins directly for cash in London. I’m intrigued – I was wondering when something like this would pop up. Of course I have several questions surrounding this. The first one is when I can actually visit – there don’t seem to be […]

The Glorious Agorist Future Likely Will Be Peer-to-Peer #gloriousagoristfuture #bitcoin #p2p #mesh #networking

Picture from openlibernet.org. I’ve come across a very interesting project when it comes to mesh (aka p2p) networking. The OpenLibernet Project aims to combine mesh networking with some of the ideas behind the Bitcoin protocol. The problem with mesh networking – especially insofar as concerned with building a new more secure internet – is that […]

#DeepWeb Lesson Number Four: Cryptocurrencies #bitcoin #litecoin #agorism #gloriousagoristfuture @coindesk @localbitcoins

What is a cryptocurrency? Why should you care? Let’s start by looking at the word in parts. The second part, currency, means a medium of exchange. (It’s important to note that we’re not talking about money here, but currency. Only two things are money – gold and silver. Everything else is currency.) The first part, […]

Where #Bitcoin Really Has The Ability to Change Markets $NFLX

Picture from bitcoinboard.net. There’s an interesting article at bitcoinboard.net discussing the concept of Netflix changing its revenue model using Bitcoins. While short, the article is profound. They show how Netflix could (if they chose) change from a solely subscription-based service to one that uses micro-payments with Bitcoin to charge on a pay-per-view model instead of, […]

A Real Problem with #Bitcoin: #Spam #BitcoinSpam @gavinandresen @pwuille @jgarzik #Satoshi #BTC

A picture of the email I received showing me the failed transaction. I’ve been receiving a lot of Satoshis lately. Satoshis, being the smallest divisible unit of a bitcoin (so far), are therefore currency, even if they’re really small. One would think that receiving money, no matter how small, would be a good thing. However, […]

Is the Glorious Agorist Future Peer-to-Peer? #P2P #PeertoPeer #Peer2Peer #DarkWeb #Agorism #Agorist #gloriousagoristfuture @rosenblumtv

Picture from codeproject.com. As an agorist (spell-check changed that to “amorist” originally, but I’m going to leave that one alone) it seems to me that things will eventually move from the centralised model of interaction to the more localised model. Having a 500+ person centralised government in a country of millions makes no sense when […]
