Richard Jacobs discovered Bitcoin in 2013 by reading an article in the New York Times, but dismissed the idea as a curiosity (like many). Fast forward to October 2016, when he started a podcast called Future Tech Podcast - the goal was and is to learn about round-the-corner new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, 3D-printing, stem cells, regenerative medicine, Bitcoin and blockchain (of course), and more. Since October 2016, Richard has interviewed more than 400 different companies and consultants, 200 of which are in the Bitcoin/Ethereum/blockchain space. Richard also attends a weekly local Austin, Texas, Bitcoin meetup, sponsored by Factom. He is now a crypto-enthusiast, and small-time "hodler". In February of 2017, Richard joined Bitcoin.com to help run their podcast, Bitcoin: The Internet of Money. After interviewing 200 Bitcoin/blockchain companies (and counting), Richard's fascination with the industry had grown to a point where he had to get the information out of his head and into the hands of other crypto-enthusiasts (like you, the listener). Richard is currently planning and hosting The Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Blockchain Superconference to be held in Dallas, Texas, February 16-18, 2018. For more info, visit www.BitcoinSuperConference.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Richard has also partnered with several marketing veterans and successful startup founders to build a team of 48 people behind his blockchain-focused business development consultancy firm, Blockchain Edge.

Bitcoin Trading: A Complete Beginner's Guide What are the tricks and secrets to being a great bitcoin trader? The answers to this all-important question are not farfetched. The book Bitcoin Trading: A Beginner's Guide offers rare insights into this vital subject matter relating to financial independence. This exception audiobook presents a worthwhile exploration into the intricate but profitable world of bitcoin trading through an explicit analysis of the nitty-gritty as well as expounding on its modus operandi to better educate traders and investors alike on the best possible ways to minimize their risks while, at the same time, rewards are being maximized. Bitcoin emerged in 2009 as the creation of a person under the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. It became the world's first fully operational, decentralized, peer-to-peer digital currency system. Being decentralized intrinsically means being self-organizing, a phenomenon in which local individuals achieve global goals without central planning or influence. Although decentralized systems can be found in nature, the concept is not easy to grasp in its monetary context, as we are so used to the voice of central governments and financial institutions orchestrating our economic lives. Blockchain: A Complete Beginner's Guide Bitcoins as a game changer have virtually set people's imagination into flight. Bitcoins are based on the blockchain technology. Increased exploration of the further uses of blockchain technologies have showed that there is immense promise in blockchain technologies. No wonder, blockchain contracts are now beginning to be viewed with increased seriousness. Blockchain contracts are contracts that are entered into using the blockchain technology. Unlike the actual world contract, blockchain contracts are different inasmuch as they are executed using the code embedded in the blockchain. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Theis.

This digest depicts the rise of Bitcoin as it secures its position as the number one digital currency and as the new "digital" gold standard for the millennial age. Whilst still a young currency, it has been adopted by millions of users around the globe. Some doubt its sustainability, yet the concept has spread all over the world to people who are calling for a currency free from governmental intervention - a democratic currency. Bitcoin truly threatens to weaken the power governments have by attempting to decentralize local currencies world over. Bitcoin's story is a story of crowd invention. This digest captures its rise from when the first pioneer of the currency, Satoshi Nakamoto gave birth to it. It has piqued the interest of seasoned investors such as the Winklevoss brothers to the Argentinian billionaire, Wences Casares, who recognize its potential to change the world. Many have profited massively from the currency, however it has been the downfall for many others, especially those who have used it to trade in the black market. The digest finishes with an optimistic account of Blockchain, the infrastructure that underpins Bitcoin, detailing the potential it has to disrupt corrupt governments and organizations for the better. A fascinating audiobook that leaves you excited about the future. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David L. White. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/083278/bk_acx0_083278_sample.mp3.

Given the recent generous stimulus introduced by almost all governments in the world and especially in the United States, it is unclear how these stimulus packages will affect economies. With a cold war being seemingly inevitable between China and the USA, it is likely that the dollar may lose its status as a world currency. When that happens, there will be chaos in the financial world. Bitcoin may just be able to fill that vacuum and become the world’s currency. After all, the required protocols are already in place for the exchange of Bitcoins into local currencies at almost anywhere in the world. Even if the above does not happen, blockchain technology is likely to be here to stay. Blockchain development has been on the rise in recent years, with conglomerates like Microsoft, Google, and IBM notably hiring talents and financing research into blockchain. For that reason, we can conclude that there is merit to this revolutionary technology and we should at least understand how it works in the event that it becomes commonplace in our contemporary society. Cryptocurrencies have created a completely new asset class that has been experiencing healthy growth over the last five years. The industry has matured heavily from its early days and has shown promise in eventually becoming adopted in some way or another. With that, this book will introduce what Bitcoin is, how to invest in it and other cryptocurrencies, what to avoid, and show you why Bitcoin will play a major role in the digital age of the 21st century. 1.

In this hour, the end of money. Really? Are we really on the verge of a coming cashless society?Next, people do without money in many different ways – from simple bartering to using bitcoin on-line. In 2005, a group of parents in Madison did it by creating a babysitting coop. It’s simple. Colored popsicle sticks are traded per hour of babysitting. All families start with a limited number of sticks. So, once you’re out of popsicle sticks, you have to babysit to get more. Families are added to the group and problems are discussed at potlucks every 4 months. And it’s all organized on-line. Since 2005, the group has traded some 1,250 hours of babysitting worth more than 15,000 dollars.Then, Ithaca Hours is a local currency from Ithaca, New York, that is the oldest and largest alternative currency in the US. Founded in 1991, by Paul Glover, Ithaca Hours has an estimated circulation of several million dollars and has spawned about 80 imitators around the country.After that, “Before there was money, there was debt” - boldly states David Graeber in his book Debt: The First 5,000 Years. Now, Graeber brings a lot to the table. He’s considered one of the world’s leading anarchists. He’s a professor of Anthropologyat Goldsmiths, University of London. And he’s one of the founders of that little thing called Occupy Wall Street. Greaber says all those experiences help him understand the role of debt in our lives.Finally, imagine living an entire year without money. And I mean no money. No cash. No credit cards. Nothing. Where do you live? What do you eat? How do you wash? Mark Boyle did it. And he found out it wasn’t so bad after all. In fact, he loved it. He tells his heart-warming, and funny, story in the book, The Moneyless Man. Steve Paulson spoke with Boyle about the transition from a life with money to one without it.
