As a fervent bitcoin enthusiast, I frequently come across the following objection: In contrast to physical, analog things, bitcoin and similar crypto assets are completely virtual and digital. As such, they are neither tangible nor graspable and would thus lack any real basis of value. Because of their digital nature, many people still object to bitcoin, refuse to take it seriously or consider it altogether too scary. Some even lump the crypto asset in with other eerie and unsavory developments in tech and the ongoing digital transformation. Be Not Afraid of the Digital World Among greatest digital threats seems to...
ENS is a naming service built on Ethereum which allows users to create human-readable names for Ethereum addresses and other content. ENS “makes life easier” as we could now send funds directly to domain names (e.g. shumin.eth) instead of the long addresses (e.g. 0x12bc...).  Initially launched on May 2017, ENS was deployed as a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain and have improved tremendously over the years from a waiting time of roughly 5 days to only within 1 minute. As of November 2019, ENS is utilized by nearly over 100s of wallets, dApps, decentralized websites and appears to grow...

Full nodes are an indispensable part of Bitcoin’s system of checks and balances. They further decentralize the network, they keep miners honest, they verify and register every transaction that takes place on the blockchain, and they provide more autonomy and privacy to users. In order to run a full Bitcoin node, it’s enough to download the Bitcoin Core client on your computer and wait for the initial block download (IBD) to complete. However, some individuals may find that process cumbersome and unnecessarily time consuming. Consequently, companies have developed solutions that minimize the struggles of downloading and running a full node...

Since 2013, one of the ongoing conversations between U.S. regulators and digital asset market participants has been the attempt to get a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) approved.

Each of these ETFs has taken a unique crack at satisfying the requirements demanded by the SEC of ETFs, from reliance on different underlying assets — like “physical”...

So my wife and I decided to buy a house and move there — that was 14 years ago.” Now, in a less-than-expected twist, Peterson is working on bootstrapping bitcoin economies in two villages on the eastern coast of the...
