Bitcoin the future of the money (AudioBook) By Dominic Frisby
Views: 5807 Darrick Morell
What happens when the way we buy, sell and pay for things changes, perhaps even removing the need for banks or currency exchange bureaus? That's the radical promise of a world powered by cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. We're not there yet, but in this sparky talk, digital currency researcher Neha Narula describes the collective fiction of money — and paints a picture of a very different looking future.

Bitcoin and blockchains: The future of money explained with ancient stones on the tiny Pacific island of Yap. Ethereum, Bitcoin and other blockchains are being called the future of money. This decentralized, digital money aims to replace physical cash and middlemen like VISA or your bank. But is this really such a new idea? We travelled to the remote Pacific island of Yap, where an ancient form of stone money has more in common with the future than you'd think.

Are Bitcoin and other types of cryptocurrency really the future of money, or just hype? TEACHERS: Get your students in the discussion on KQED Learn, a safe place for middle and high school students to investigate controversial topics and share their voices. https://learn.kqed.org/topics/10 There’s been a lot of hype recently about Bitcoin and other types of cryptocurrency. So, are they really the future of money, or just a lot of digital hype? ABOVE THE NOISE is a show that cuts through the hype and investigates the research behind controversial and trending topics in the news. Hosted by Myles Bess. *NEW VIDEOS EVERY OTHER WEDNESDAY* SUBSCRIBE by clicking the RED BUTTON above. Follow us on Instagram @kqedabovethenoise Since 2017, when its value skyrocketed and turned a bunch lucky folks into overnight millionaires, there’s been a lot of buzz about Bitcoin and other types of cryptocurrencies. Millions of people around the world own some form of cryptocurrency, and entire new industries have sprung up around them. Some believers think that cryptocurrencies could even replace traditional monetary systems. But a good number of skeptics say that this new type of digital cash is just a short-term fad that won’t last long. What is Bitcoin? Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency, introduced by an anonymous programmer(s) in 2009 (under the alias Satoshi Nakamoto). Like the other cryptocurrencies that followed it, Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer digital cash network that was created to allow users to make financial transactions without the need for a bank or other trusted third party. Transactions are validated autonomously by computers on the network that compete to solve complex math problems. Cryptocurrencies are not tied to any national government or currency, and are therefore largely unregulated. Also, their value is extremely volatile and unpredictable, based entirely on speculation. What is the blockchain? Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies operate on open-source software that facilitates transactions between users and ensures the transactions are valid. A group of transactions is known as a block. When that block is validated by other computers on the network, it gets added to a ongoing list of transactions called the chain. All users in the network can see this growing list of transactions (which is called a ledger), although the identify of the buyer and seller and what they’re actually exchanging remains anonymous. Why are so many people so skeptical about cryptocurrencies? Many traditional economists argue that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are just bubbles waiting to pop. They note that their value is based on nothing but speculation - the confidence people have in them at any given moment for whatever reason. And unlike dollars and other traditional currencies, they are not backed by any government, so their value doesn’t come with any guarantee. Skeptics also note that because the value of cryptocurrencies is so erratic and so few businesses accept them, that they’ve largely failed to be functional alternative forms of payment.

The 2008 financial crisis spread distrust in banks and sped up the acceptance of new kinds of money. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin now promise to provide transparent, democratic alternatives. Startups in the Philippines are disrupting old structures. More than 50 million Filipinos are unbanked. FinTech startups are now giving them access to money. With little access to formal banking services, millions in the Philippines can’t save money, take out loans or perform other simple financial transactions. Now FinTech startups are raising levels of financial inclusion. Founders here believe the country is ripe for change, and that cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin will provide the momentum. Blockchain ambassador Lina Seiche, the founder of Blockchats, is working for change through bitcoin and decentralized networks. SCI founder Miguel Cuneta is helping that change along by offering services like bill payment, e-commerce, cashless transactions, and of course, cryptocurrency wallets. He’s enabling people in the unbanked market - like waste-pickers - by helping them participate in the world of digital commerce. Founder David Kath is aiding them as well by eliminating middlemen in the plastic industry with technology that allows waste-pickers to triple incomes. Turned into digital tokens in an e-wallet, plastic has become their money.

It's been said that cash is king, but lately it's been getting a little competition from a currency you can't see. It's called Bitcoin. Despite its name, you can't hold it in your hand. It's a digital form of money that only exists in cyberspace, sent globally from one computer to another. You can buy Bitcoin online. The currency is then stored in a digital wallet on your computer. There are no rules or regulations. It's not connected to any bank or government, which suits Bitcoin's anti-establishment advocates just fine. Alexis Christoforous reports.

Recorded 28th November 2017 The socio-economic debate surrounding money has advanced since the early metallist days of John Locke. Money is no longer viewed as an homogenous, neutral thing; rather, theorists are wont to emphasise its pivotal role in shaping networks of social relations. Yet, in many respects, the legal analysis of money is playing catch-up, and the advent of distributed online ecosystems such as Bitcoin and Ethereum has pushed to the fore some difficult questions concerning the appropriate legal lens through which to view money, and monetary assets. If we are to produce robust answers, these questions must be explored with the benefit of interdisciplinary insight. In this conversation, law meets sociology in an attempt to lay the foundation for confronting some of these challenges. Tatiana Cutts (@TatianaCutts) is Assistant Professor of Law, LSE Law. Nigel Dodd (@nigelbdodd) is Professor of Sociology, LSE. Eva Micheler is Associate Professor in Law, LSE Law. Philipp Paech is Assistant Professor of Law, LSE Law.

And if you look at the very best technologies they tend to sort of eventually fade seamlessly into the background. So for example, you’re using your phone every day, but you don’t necessarily understand how TCPIP is working in terms of transmitting data on the Internet. And there’s lots of examples like that where the best technology sort of fades into the background in terms of what you’re doing. In the case of Bitcoin or related cryptocurrencies a lot of the near-term impact of that is really around financial services and the emergence of a new digital asset class. And so if you look at Bitcoin really what it is is in some sense a store of value or a store of wealth, and many people compare it to something like millennial gold. It’s basically a digital asset that you hold as an investable product. And so I think many of the early uses is just going to be this will end up being a part of everybody’s portfolio in ten years, and you’re going to have some proportion in bonds and some proportion in stocks, and then some proportion in cryptocurrencies. So I think for most people that’s really how it’s going to exist in the shorter-term. Some people are talking about the Web3 or Internet3 and how all infrastructure is going to flip over to decentralized cryptocurrency-based systems. I’m much more skeptical about that, at least in the short run. In part because centralized systems tend to be dramatically more efficient than decentralized systems; in other words if you look at the cost of running a centralized system it’s much lower, you have bargaining power around the underlying hardware, you have economies of scale in terms of how you deploy it and where you place it, and also just running these systems is much simpler if you have a centralized approach. What that means it is is that most of the times that you’re going to see blockchains pop up is when you’re using something that is uniquely associated with them. And if you ask what a blockchain is it’s really sort of a bad database, but it has very unique characteristics where it has this notion of being trust-less, in other words you can, in aggregate, come to consensus or decisions together or conclusions around the quality of data, the quality of the transaction or other things in a way that no central authority can control. And what that means is you’ve created systems that are effectively censorship proof or seizure resistant, in other words the government can’t come and take your asset if you’re in a country which has very bad governance, or it means that no third-party can suddenly accidentally erase your data, or you can’t hack a third-party to access your data (although obviously you can still hack a blockchain). And so really where that tends to crop up, if you ask “what are the things that I don’t want the government or other third-party to take from me?” or a place where I want some notion of privacy around what I’m doing, it really tends to be around money or it tends to be around personal data. And in the long run I think those are the areas that are going to be most impacted, but I think in the short run really it’s going to be about “Do you have a piece of this digital asset in your portfolio?”

Dominic Frisby discusses his book Bitcoin: The Future of Money? In 2008, while the world was busy panicking about the global financial crisis, a computer programmer called Satoshi Nakamoto posted a message on an obscure mailing list. ‘I’ve been working on a new electronic cash system’, he said. ‘It might make sense to get some just in case it catches on.’ Nobody seemed to care. But what he had created would become the world’s most famous alternative currency: Bitcoin. Economists, anarchists, speculators, computer coders, libertarians, entrepreneurs and criminals worldwide were inspired. Early adopters would make a return two million times larger than their initial investment. Now it seems that Bitcoin will do to banking and finance what email did to the postal service and what the Internet did to publishing: destroy old monopolies and create opportunities for the masses. Some even suggest that the technology behind Bitcoin will usurp our Western systems of representative democracy. In Bitcoin: The Future of Money? Dominic Frisby sets out to solve the mystery surrounding the identity of Bitcoin’s secretive creator, explain in layman’s terms exactly how the system works, and show how Bitcoin will change the world forever.

Learn Why You Should Invest In Bitcoin Cash In 2018 3 Reasons Bitcoin Cash is on Fire! The Bitcoin Cash Blockchain has more developers working on blockchain advancements than any other cryptocurrency! The BCH decentralized dev teams are hard-forking to bigger blocks (32 megabytes) on May 15, 2018 in order to allow over 200 transactions per second; beating out the average TPS of PayPal! The fork also turns back on “OP Codes” re-enabling the Ethereum-style smart contract layer that Bitcoin Core shut off on the BTC chain. NChain released the Nakasendo SDK by Craig S. Wright, while CoinText, Memo.Cash and Yours.org exploded onto the scene to show some fun and functional use-cases in SMS texting and social media rivalry. Watch out, twitter and facebook! Add in colored coins, tokenization and the power of cheap microtransactions via 0-Confirmation speed, and the world is asking “Why did we need Segwit?” Successful testing of on-chain atomic swaps, new privacy features via CashShuffle, and it’s hard to say 2018 will be anything but a rocket to the moon for Bitcoin Cash!

Interview with Fred Ehrsam, the co-founder of Coinbase, the largest and in many ways most "legit" start-up in the emerging Bitcoin economy. Coinbase manages Bitcoin wallets and transactions between people who hold the currency. Ehrsam is a former foreign exchange trader at Goldman Sachs who became entranced by the possibilities of Bitcoin, and he speaks elegantly and in great depth about why he believes digital currency will be revolutionary. I'll aim to ask him about Bitcoin's murky founding, its advantages and its shortcomings as currency, how to secure it, its political affinities, and whether it fundamentally changes how we think about money.

Bitcoin is a digital crypto currency that can be transfered from person to person through the internet without going through a bank. The bitcoin network is secured by people called miners which is a third person that verifies the transaction between a buyer and a seller… every verification is then recorded as a code that is then put onto a public ledger where anyone can review the code, creating the perfect transparency and advanced security. Now, you might also think that we already have digital currency like paypal or even credit cards, but the difference again is that this currency is completely independent of banks and the government. While credit cards and paypal is digital… it’s still moved as currency that belongs to a certain country without the security or speed to instantly use it across the world without a bank slowing down the process. THE END OF THE DARK WEB AND BLACK MARKET? So far, the black market on the internet and bitcoin seem to go synonymously like Bill Cosby and leaving your drink unattended…. They both lead up to unwanted illegal activity. …. Hackers ransoming companies for bitcoin has been a recent problem where even Disney was hacked and held ransom with the threat of releasing Pirates of the Carribean if Disney didn’t pay their demands in bitcoin. Which is kind of ironic because that’s kind of what real pirates do… minus all the rape, blood shed, and early childhood onset diabetes from their frosted sugary cereals. However, this is currently based on a system where bitcoin ISN’T the only form of currency… If bitcoin becomes the ONLY form of currency, then it’s a totally different story. The real nature of bitcoin leaves perfect paper trails and proof of acitivity because of the nature in which bitcoins encode every transaction. Therefore, if no other forms of currency existed, it wouldn’t be as easy to convert and launder the bitcoin into another form of value or currency. Also, if bitcoin were the only currency to exist, countries would probably enforce stricter account creation that ties to a persons real identity, for the sake of preventing tax evasion, so people wouldn’t be able to create anonymous accounts as easily. All purchases would be transparent and THAT puts a real damper on illegal activity. The darkweb and blackmarket in general would either seize to exist, or have to adapt a new barter system to exchange their goods for something other than money in order to hide their illegal activity… Like, for every photo of an underaged child you buy, you’d have to ship the seller a loaf of bread…. or an equally enticing picture of your younger self. Keep in mind that the fight against the darkweb isn’t an infringement on your legal rights to purchase things anonymously… I’m not talking about your right to buy korean bootleg dvds or fake iphones… I’m talking about the more serious illegal items like drugs, dangerous weapons, bombs, and every person in Liam Neesons immediate family. But it is a good question to ask how people would feel then about having all their purchases an open book? ANONYMITY GONE Anonymous spending would seize to exist. There are definitely benefits to having currency that doesn’t leave a paper trail. Bitcoin did afterall, have a key role in helping anonymously fund WikiLeaks, an outcome that had good results. Also, some people like to do positive things like donate to certain charities, but for some personal reasons, not want to have their name affiliated with an organization with strong political or social ties. A wife may ask her husband why he’s donated so much money to the LGBT foundation and wonder if it’s the same reason he calls her Chad during foreplay. The Chad… A poll taken in Britain showed that 70 percent of Britons would not be happy if governemnt agencies had record of their spending… They valued privacy…. But then again… what the fuck does “privacy” with your spending really mean? What are you trying to hide? When someone invites you over to their house and tells you, “Oh, you’re welcome to go into any room… EXCEPT for the one with the sound proof door locked with padlocks and a chain”… your first thought isn’t that it’s a wine cellar… It’s probably a sex dungeon…. But whether it’s a secret human centipede farm, or just a surprise present for your spouse… secret spending would be eliminated for better or for worse.

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with News BTC and today I’m taking a look at Initiative Q, the promise of a new “future” currency that created a frenzy on Invest Diva’s Investment group this week. As a crypto enthusiast, you may have already been approached by friends and family with an invitation that only asks for your name, email address and a password to reserve you an amount of the next potential Bitcoin. Except, it is not a cryptocurrency and doesn’t even work on the blockchain- yet. They call it a social financial experiment. There’s only a limited amount of invites, so things can get hyped up pretty easily especially if the link is shared within an online group. After all, who wouldn’t want some free money that can be used in the economy of the future? Doing a quick search online, you’d find a ton of articles that have compared Initiative Q to a Pyramid Scheme. To which, Initiative Q’s Twitter handle has responded with a big ole “no”, claiming that “pyramid schemes collect money from new members and distribute it to earlier members. In contrast, joining initiative Q is completely free. So, clearly, there is no money to hand up the “pyramid” to earlier members.” Personally, I liked the way they described how any currency has come to value in our financial systems, and that is because people demand it and stores accept it for payment. Their website reads: “No buyer will join a new payment network with no sellers, and no seller will offer a new payment option that no buyer uses.” They call it a “self-fulfilling prophecy.” As millions join, advanced payment technologies are deployed, the payment system becomes even more popular, the Q currency becomes valuable. And of course, if you get invited now, you can secure some Qs for “free.” Critics say this is not really free, because they can at least use your name and email address for marketing in the future. Supporters say, what website do you know who doesn’t ask you for this minimal amount of information? At the end of the day, all we know for sure is that Initiative Q has no value today. And whether or not it becomes valuable in the future, depends on how wildly popular it becomes, and how sincere the founders, who are former PayPal people, by the way, are. Now I’d like to hear from you. What do you think about Initiative Q? Have you got an invite yet? Do you think this is just a scam or has the potential to turn into an actual currency in the future? Let me know in the comments, and subscribe for more updates!

Keywords/phrases: Does terminological purity matter? What is and isn't a blockchain? Openness is a characteristic that matters. The blockchain is the least interesting part of Bitcoin. The use implications are more interesting. Consensus algorithm, degree of decentralization, openness to innovation, permission-less-ness, identity vs. anonymity, censorship and coercion resistance. The vast majority of future transactions will be digital. Without financial privacy, you'll get financial surveillance; protests will have financial consequences. Transactional privacy has been the standard for most of human history. What kind of future do you want to live in?
