Why Wales needs Bitcoin
July 3, 2015

I am please to announce that TechDragons have posted an article written by myself. Please check it out to support the site. There are many people who have not heard of Bitcoin or if they have, they have heard negative press about it being used for shady transactions and illegal activities. Although it is true […]

To continue with the theme of those who are involved in the cryptocurrency setting here in Wales, I have been lucky enough to get Daniel Vartanov to answer back in regards to his thoughts and opinions about Bitcoin and how he feels about being a part of the technological push into cryptocurrencies.

Bitcoin Event
Vinay Gupta, the next Andreas Antonopoulos?
June 10, 2015

Vinay Gupta gave a speech at Digital 2015 at the Celtic Manor in Newport. I found it very refreshing to meet someone who could explain the coming digital revolution in a manner that anyone can understand. He explained the bigger picture of digital currencies and how they would allow for crowd equity and how they […]

Bitcoin 0.5
March 15, 2015

Bitcoin is Evolution not Revolution
January 15, 2015

I highly recommend the reading of ‘The Innovators’, a book by Walter Isaacson. It covers the digital revolution from the Victorian period with the concept of the modern computer by Ada Lovelace to the present day with the concept and creation of the internet and modern day web. What hits hard in the book is […]

Bitcoin for Dummies (Part 2)

As talked about in my last blog post, Bitcoin is an open source protocol that allows you to transfer value across the world’s most powerful computing network. The beauty of Bitcoin is the fact that it is a fast and stable foundation for which anyone can build applications on top of. Bitcoin allows programmers to […]

Bitcoin for Dummies (Part 1)
December 13, 2014

I shall try to simplify what bitcoin is, so that anyone can understand Bitcoin and its possible implications on the world. In today’s world you have money in your bank.
