ICO Scams and Cryptocurrency Backed By Gold #26

8/14/2018
More
In this episode, we are talking about cryptocurrencies backed by gold, OmniCoin, and ICO Scams. Since 1971, the US dollar is no longer backed by gold. It is essentially just a piece of paper, backed by faith in the US government. There are currently no government-issued currencies that are 100% backed by gold or any other valuable material. If you’re one of the many who wants a currency backed by precious metals, the emerging token assetization market is creating digital tokens that...

What is Blockchain? #22

7/17/2018
More
What is Blockchain? You’ve heard this word everywhere lately, but what does it really mean? Simply put, it’s a way of structuring and storing data. Think of how you pack things up to move. Things are put in boxes, the boxes are labeled with the contents, and then it is stacked inside the moving truck or storage unit. That’s it, really. So why is that revolutionary? Or special? It’s not that special or revolutionary at all. How it is being used, is what the fuss is all about. It enables...

Food on Blockchain #21 Something is Fishy on the Blockchain! How the Blockchain is Reducing Seafood Fraud

7/10/2018

How is the Blockchain Reducing Seafood Fraud? Are you sure that the expensive “Wild-caught Atlantic Salmon” you had for dinner last night was in fact the gourmet fish you thought it was? Or was it just a cheaper farm-grown salmon? Or was it salmon at all? Moreover, are you sure the tasty white tuna sushi your local sushi bar serves is actually made from tuna and not from escolar, also known as oilfish? What’s the big deal, you might ask. Well, escolar is quite notorious for its...

What are Cryptocurrencies? #19

6/26/2018
More
What Are Cryptocurrencies? What must our parents or grandparents have thought the first time somebody mentioned the idea of a debit card? After carrying around cash and a checkbook their whole lives, here was a piece of plastic with some numbers that tracked account balances by swiping a black stripe through a box at the checkout counter. And it was supposed to represent a real transaction using real money from a real bank account? Give me a break! It cannot possibly work! Of course,...

EPISODE 18: Cryptocurrency and the Environment

6/19/2018
More
Cryptocurrency and the Environment “Bitcoin mining is using up more electricity than the entire country of Ireland.” While Ireland’s population is quite small with its less than 4.8 million people, the power consumption of Bitcoin is still often underestimated. It is odd to think that just one cryptocurrency might consume the same amount of energy every year as 6.3 million US households. But is it such a crime that the crypto-revolution which is changing the world needs a little...

EPISODE 17: ICOs and Regulations: Taming the New Wild West

6/12/2018
More
ICOs and Regulations: Taming the New Wild West ICOs - or Initial Coin Offerings - are a widely used method for cryptocurrency startups, and also how some blockchain technology companies raise their initial funds to get their projects started. It is very much like a Kickstarter or GoFundMe, with the “reward” being given in newly created tokens. These tokens can be used on the product or service that is being built, which is referred to as a utility token, or in some cases, held like a...

EPISODE 15: Using Crypto in Your Everyday Life

6/1/2018
More
Using Crypto in Your Everyday Life Most of us have wondered at first: “Why is cryptocurrency even a thing? What is the difference between numbers in a bank account versus numbers on a crypto wallet?” Banking still relies on technology built in the 1970s, and plain old paper trails. Why should we wait days for deposits and withdraws to clear, wire transfers to be sent, and cashier checks to be printed and mailed, when we can email someone around the world in 5 seconds? Finally,...

EPISODE 14: Crypto is Going Country

5/25/2018
More
Crypto is Going Country Currency is a major form of economic control and stability. So while it may seem like an already saturated marketplace is only going to get worse, everyone will not agree to use Bitcoin as the worldwide currency any time soon. As countries evolve their currencies, this may lead to future dialogues about backing standards, what digital currencies represent, and might eventually create a more stable global economy. There is no telling if the distribution of...

EPISODE 13: Blockchains and Algorithms

5/18/2018
More
Blockchains and Algorithms Blockchain is the latest tech craze and has attracted a lot of attention. Before blockchain, computers operated in a client/server relationship, where one central authority (the server) is contacted by a client (your laptop, phone, etc.) and is requested to send back information. An example of this is when you use Netflix. Your TV connects to a Netflix server, which has preloaded movies and shows for you to choose from. Once you select your show, it then...
