The story of Hal Finney, an extraordinary cryptographic activist (main contributor to PGP), and his idea of “Reusable Proofs Of Work”. He was also one of the first Bitcoin users (downloading Bitcoin on the day it was released), receiving the first Bitcoin transaction ever from Satoshi him/herself!

Dear Miners, we strongly recommend you DON’T UPGRADE your S9 devices with the new Bitmain firmware. It is not compatible with BIP310 standard and as a result also not compatible with @slush_pool. We are working hard on providing our own fix asap and will keep you posted.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Bitcoin is an adversarial network; by my count there were 68 attempts in the past week to feed an invalid block to my node. There was also an attempt to create 234,512 BTC out of thin air. This is why we don’t trust, we verify.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Bitcoin is distinct from all the centrally controlled securities (ETH, ICO’s and many other alts). Satoshi’s wisdom was not only in its creation but also in stepping back. Lack of central authority is why Bitcoin endures. Nobody to pay for marketing campaigns is a feature.

Can we stop with the Btrash, Bitcoin,com, Ver related posts? It’s all insignificant compared to Bitcoin and you’re only giving that miniature shitstorm oxygen. Ver also loves all the attention – don’t feed his Narcissistic personality disorder. Ignore him.
