At the heart of Bitcoin is the global network of mines and miners, from the United States to China to the former Soviet Union, who run it. These people not only process every Bitcoin transaction. They also play an outsized role in governing the system -- for better and for worse.

Say hello to the decentralized economy -- the blockchain is about to change everything. In this lucid explainer of the complex (and confusing) technology, Bettina Warburg describes how the blockchain will eliminate the need for centralized institutions like banks or governments to facilitate trade, evolving age-old models of commerce and finance into something far more interesting: a distributed, transparent, autonomous system for exchanging value.

Keywords/phrases: What should NOT go on a blockchain? 80% of what people are saying should be implemented on "blockchain." Right now, "blockchain" is a hammer and everything that looks like a nail is getting hit, which is mostly breaking things and not producing anything useful. Nobody really knows what a blockchain is, and it's being defined in such a ridiculously broad way. "Blockchain" is ultimately a meaningless word. Trust, transparency, and immutability are not properties of the blockchain; they are properties of a system that combines a blockchain, an open consensus mechanism with a proof-of-work investment in extrinsic energy, and a native asset that creates a game-theoretical reward system. They all work in conjunction to massively increase the decentralisation of the system until...
Bitcoin in five minutes: Blockchain technology will drastically change our lives. In the coming years, the technology behind crypto currencies such as Bitcoin will inevitably and radically change the role of traditional trusted parties such as banks, accountants, notaries, and governments. The animated video about Bitcoin that was released today on http://bitcoinproperly.org is the first to specifically address the technology behind Bitcoin: the Blockchain. Within five minutes, it is explained how the essential functions of the “trusted third party” can be automatized through the Blockchain as well as what the implications of this are. From Bitcoin hype to Blockchain revolution: an internet of trust. With the arrival of crypto currencies such as Bitcoin, everyone around the world can tra...
There is growing recognition of the revolutionary potential of the blockchain technology, which first saw the light of day as the software underpinning bitcoin. The Economist has run a cover story describing its “distributed ledger”, which potentially renders all sorts of intermediaries redundant as the “great trust engine.” Yet even as there has been a surge in startups looking to build businesses using the bitcoin blockchain, there has been growing concern about the strength and efficiency of that blockchain, and various attempts to design alternative blockchains that are not connected to bitcoin. Some of these efforts have been led by incumbent financial firms, either individually or in consortiums, whilst there has been a growing number of partnerships between blockchain startups and i...

What is the Blockchain? This 2 minute video explains it in a very easy way. As usual, please leave you questions and ideas in the comments. with love your MinuteVideos Team Video Script: Scene 1 Blockchain is a Peer to Peer software technology that protects the integrity of a digital piece of information. It was invented to create the alternative currency Bitcoin but may be used for other cryptocurrencies, online signature services, voting systems and many other applications. In this video we explain how it works and what makes it special. Scene 2 Everyone uses paper money. When you get a 10 dollar bill you trust that it's not fake. If instead someone sent you an email saying "here's 10 dollars" you probably wouldn’t trust it. But when we "transfer money", use an ATM or pay with...

So now you get the basics of what a blockchain is -- but how does it do what we say it does? Who gets to "write" to it, when, and why?

Satoshi Nakamoto solved the trusted third party problem and set off the fintech revolution that has already spawned thousands of startups and more than a hundred exchanges. Trading in bitcoin is frictionless, cheap and global. Despite these advantages, most of the trading volume is still in the legacy markets because crypto-exchanges are inherently risky. Security breaches, speculation with customer funds and exchange failure for any number of reasons are still a possibility. Many cryptocurrency exchanges are not very transparent and their actual operations are of uncertain veracity. The internet did not have much commerce until the ability to securely accept credit cards online in the mid-90s caused runaway growth of e-commerce. Solving the trust problem will similarly cause the 1 quadr...

I know a couple who were in love
Liven in the best of times
The world blew up
They would never know
All the pain they never realized
Sheltered from the world's every woe
Living happy and politically correct
Just buy it if you want it now
Just get it if you need it in your life
Now don't you worry if it all runs out
Don't worry cause it never will
I know a young girl living in the shadow of
The kind of live she could never make
She takes it all and gives it back in love
To all the artists in her native state
She is the angle of the disenchanted soul
Just give it if it makes you smile
Yeah just use it if you need in you life
Now don't you worry should it all run out
Don't worry cause it never will
Please don't tell me that it's all ok
I don't wanna here you tell me that it's ok
I don't wanna see you given like a little kid
I don't wanna here you talk about your cherry
No no no no no
Please don't tall me all about it woah
Please don't tell me I don't wanna hear all your lies
Lies lies lies
Lies lies lies
