BITCOIN HEX ICO Rating, Reviews and Details | ICOholder Select widget Notification icon
Weak progress: Fewer developers In theory, a larger community of developers will try more cool things and get more done than a smaller community. BitcoinHEX by being an ERC20 token gets full advantage of the largest pool of developers in crypto (Ethereum developers), and all of the cool new inventions they create, such as distributed exchanges, atomic swaps, etc  Poor incentive alignment: Free riders You and your team work hard to make something new and cool, to have a whale wake up one day and flash crash the market on you. Why? Free loaders suck.  BitcoinHEX "We're all Satoshi" feature which gives all unclaimed coins to people that did claim at 2% a week over 50 weeks means that in less than a year, only truly interested parties will hold the token.  Unfair distribution Should the guy that lives in china with free electricity and nearly free labor available get the majority of all the newly minted coins (inflation)? While increasing centralization, and not caring to negotiate with the writers of the software they run (core developers.)  BitcoinHEX is fairly distributed to those that promote it through: the 5% referral hold it, through staking, or help get the project to critical mass and adoption (bonuses for claims and claim size.)

Dash vs
In the last year the cryptocurrency market has almost tripled its capitalization up to $160 billion, which confirms the rising market trends for this technology since its inception. But with so many new cryptocurrencies being developed in recent years, some wonder about the differences between the various options ? and which is best. Bitcoin was launched in 2010 and has secured a stronghold as a market leader, but even so, many competitors are offering options, such as Dash, that are giving prospective users a reason to take another look. Dash blockchain was developed by Evan Duffield in 2013 when he discovered a couple of key weaknesses in the bitcoin technology, including lack of privacy and lack of speed. He hoped that developing Dash would solve both challenges while providing additional features. Here is a quick guide to the major differences between Dash and Bitcoin you can use to determine which option is best for your situation.

Understand What Is Bitcoin (BTC) & How Does Bitcoin Work
Bitcoin is the world?s first peer-to-peer digital currency, or cryptocurrency. Released in 2009 by the anonymous Satoshi Nakamoto, Bitcoin is the most significant application of blockchain technology today?it currently boasts a market capitalization of 112 Billion USD. In its documentation, Satoshi Nakamoto laid out its implementation: a secure, global, immutable public ledger as a record of every transaction on the network (the blockchain) and an incentive for consumers to contribute their computing power to the blockchain network (Bitcoin). The fundamental ideas behind Bitcoin came at a time when peer-to-peer networking and cloud computing were redefining the technology spaces of networking, data storage and management. At the time, however, the security and maintenance of such networks were primarily handled by large corporations looking to make a profit. Bitcoin?s documentation, on an abstract level, was a proposal to move the security and maintenance work to external, anonymous crowd contributors, bringing about a decentralized and democratic shift in these industries.

Is Bitcoin Real Money Some Things You Need To Know
It?s been in and out of the news, and in again. At first glance it seems like nothing worth paying attention to, a joke praised by out-of-touch internet nerds and ivory tower intellectuals. Is it believable that bitcoin has been going strong for 7 years? During this time no less than 118 articles have been written about the ?death of bitcoin?, there is even a site dedicated to recording these bitcoin obituaries.                                       At this point, it?s safe to say bitcoin is here to stay. So.. what is it exactly? Bitcoin refers to two things: Bitcoin is a payment network similar to Mastercard or Paypal, and bitcoins (the currency) are the medium of exchange on the bitcoin payment network. Bitcoin is a global currency, which is traded person to person without any need for a bank in the middle.

The Best Bitcoin Script Guide-Part 2 (Blockgeek's)
This is part 2 of our Best Bitcoin Script Guide. It is highly recommended that you read part 1 before you proceed with this. In part 1 we covered the following: NOTE: From here on out, we won?t be using the ?OP_? command as frequently because it should be understood that ?OP_? will always be prefixed to each opcode. Please keep this in mind. We didn?t use ?OP_? to enhance readability, when you are executing the script please remember to use ?OP_?. The transactions that we have seen up till now are all very simple (one-to-one in its nature). However, transactions can become much more complicated and layered than that.

It will also direct you to resources that will help you store and use your first pieces of digital currency.

Small wonder that Bitcoin emerged in 2008 just after Occupy Wall Street accused big banks of misusing borrowers? money, duping clients, rigging the system, and charging boggling fees. Bitcoin pioneers wanted to put the seller in charge, eliminate the middleman, cancel interest fees, and make transactions transparent, to hack corruption and cut fees. They created a decentralized system, where you could control your funds and know what was going on.
