What is a Security Token? #34

10/17/2018
More
What is a Security Token? Everything to Know About Security Tokens The cryptocurrencies we are most used to dealing with are classified as utility tokens -- whether they’re for using a service, making a payment or offsetting a transaction fee on your favorite crypto exchange. However, in more recent months, we have seen a rise in popularity of what is known as the ‘security token’, or a token that derives its value from an external, tradable asset. A utility token, like Bitcoin and...

10/12/2018
More
Blockchain and Travel Every one of us has travelled. Whether it is to a foreign country hundreds of miles away or just to another city within your country. We can travel by bus, rent a car and drive ourselves, or take the plane. If we don’t have any friends in the location we are traveling to, we can stay at a hotel, hostel, B&B or even couch surf. Travelling has never been as easy as it is right now. Platforms like Expedia, Skyscanner, and Booking.com have understood that people prefer...

Bitcoin Cash Forked Up? #31

9/25/2018
More
This week we talk about Bitcoin Cash, what it is and what does bitcoin fork mean! With incredulous poetic justice, in-fighting amongst developers at Bitcoin Cash is causing a major disturbance within the crypto communities to the point that more hard forks and chain splits seem inevitable. In addition, one of the developers, Craig Wright, is claiming to be the real Satoshi Nakamoto (the pseudonym used by the inventor of Bitcoin, who the NSA and other agencies have failed to discover on...

Crypto Wallet Comparison #30

9/18/2018
More
Crypto Wallets When choosing how to store your precious cryptocurrencies, it is important to keep one thing in mind: Your actual coins are not stored there. They are always on the distributed blockchain. The wallets only hold the private keys and passwords to them. So, if you’ve at least printed out a copy, or wrote a Post-It note somewhere, you can lose your wallet, have a hard drive crash, or any number of disasters occur, and you can still recover your funds. This week we...

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

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...

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 delicious,...

What are Cryptocurrencies? #19

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

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 juice...

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

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,...
