Introduction

October 4th, 2012

Bitcoin may be the world’s first decentralized digital monetary system, and “bitcoins” will be the currency unit used by this system. The system has existed since January 3rd, 2009 and it is employed in every country on earth. Bitcoins are created and controlled by advanced mathematics and cryptography, as opposed to by governments or banks (no government, bank, or corporation owns or controls Bitcoin). Bitcoins as being a currency unit are created over time with a diminishing rate, and there won’t ever be greater than 21 million of them in existence (though there’re highly divisible).

What are your favorite second-layer Bitcoin projects, and why?

September 24th, 2016

Recently, I'm discovering how cool Countrrparty and Factom are and getting interested/excited for this new layer of Bitcoin possibilities.

This is truly when Bitcoin goes from some digital monetary token into a real financial Internet that allows interactions online that have never been possible.

Are there others I'm missing? Feel free to share your opinions on those two or tell me if there's anything else interesting out now or coming soon.
