In a previous video, I argued that non-cash use-cases of the Bitcoin blockchain are both viable and legitimate. A blockchain is not, however, a miracle invention that makes every single electronic service or application better, or more secure,...

While Bitcoin may be a Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System, the blockchain on top of which it functions is, most fundamentally, a distributed timestamp server governed a...

You’ll often hear about how the Blockchain is a potentially revolutionary piece of technology, while the words “Bitcoin” and “Electronic Cash” are either totally neglected...

Cash-like use-cases are no longer viable on the BTC blockchain because of its unpredictably high transaction fees. But many BTC supporters insist that the “Lightning Network” will make those use-cases viable again by allowing users to trans...

Even though I think that the technology and incentive systems behind Bitcoin as a peer to peer electronic cash system are especially cool, I recognize that not everyone is going to be equally enthusiastic about those aspects of the digital currency.
There is one thing about Bitcoin that I’m confident almost ...
I was lucky enough to get a hold of the SLP Torch today, so I had to make a quick video about these Simple Tokens, and tokens in general =)

Today I received the SLP Torch on the Bitcoin Cash Blockchain. It was created using the “Simple Ledger Protocol”, hence SLP, though some ...

The term “Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash” is thrown around a lot in the Bitcoin space, but a newcomer could easily be confused when they find out that there are transaction fees in volved in this suppos...
When I'm not knee deep in Bitcoin, I'm neck deep in fringe music theory. Here's my most recent video:

The scales we’ve used historically in western music (the pentatonic, diatonic, and chromatic scales) can be derived from continuous chains of perfect fifths. Unbroken chains of a sing...
Reddit sucks. It's supposed to be a place for online communities to curate a feed of user submitted content, and also curate the discussion of that content. The mechanism by which that curation occurs is the upvote-downvote system where, if you have an account on reddit and you see a post that you think is relevant and useful to the community (and so deserves to...
Because of its (in development) money-based voting system, Honest.cash already has the potential to be vastly superior to forums like reddit where vote manipulation and sock-puppeting are rampant. Communities built on this type of system are still vulnerable, however, to individuals who have enough funds to drown out the rest of the community's votes.
In order to protect communities from ma...
Public sentiment is that contentious chain splits are "bad". This is probably because, as we've seen with both the BCH/BTC and the BCH/BSV situations, these splits have potentially disruptive consequences. Users can be confused by the split and, because splits represent conflict within the community, confidence in the coin that split may be reduced.
The reason that users can be confused by conte...
