Description

This is episode 128 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast!
We haven’t actually had a chance to cover the DAO yet, but now the news is bigger than ever and we can’t pass it up. It’s been hacked. A clever codester was able to siphon off millions of dollars worth of ether because of a bug in the program. Today, we’ll chat about the DAO’s structure, its purpose, what exactly made this exploit possible, and much more.
We’ll also have to spend some time thinking about the future of the DAO. Is there any hope of recovering the stolen funds? Some have proposed rolling Ethereum’s blockchain back in time. Would that nullify the truth of the blockchain? What the heck is truth anyway? Is it acceptable for us mere humans to step into the reality of the blockchain and change it?
Tune in for some serious philosophical musings! Your hosts are Daniel Brown, Tim Baker, and John Stuart. Enjoy!

  • Trevon James has reported that to the reporter that, notwithstanding, the maker had as of late observed a portion of his accounts for their entertainment regard. To the degree YouTube characters go, James is doubtlessly not the most exceedingly terrible, and his 120,000 supporters on that stage show it. Here he is in January, not a long time before the drapery truly began to close on the BitConnect scheme, talking about it. By then he was at the same time defending BCC and its executives, saying that “in case they expected to deceive” they could have as of late left with everything starting at now. Note this is actually what BitConnect did sometime in the future………… News Source: TheCoinRepublic

  • The importance of digital marketing has increased significantly in the last few years. E-commerce and the web are used more than they have ever been before. Online stores and services have proven true that it is on the web and at our fingertips. The main problem which is encountering for cryptocurrency users is choosing a reliable cryptocurrency wallet. What is BitcoinGenX? BitcoinGenX (BGX) is truly a 2-in-1 innovative cryptocurrency aiming to change the way cryptocurrencies are perceived and how they can be beneficial to the future for financial institutions. BitcoinGenX is POS+ zPoS Hybrid cryptocurrency forked wallet and it also includes customized Zerocoin Protocol. BitcoinGenX aims to provide innovation and positive change to the world by promoting both eco-friendly and privacy solutions in the blockchain industry. For the BtcGenX holder, it will be extremely beneficial to hold BGX as the algorithm is Proof-of-stake/Masternode. That means that the only way to mine/mint BGX coins is by holding and staking coins. Once the coin holder has enough coins for a masternode, they will profit from higher rewards. BitcoinGenX cannot be mined by GPU (Graphics Cards) or CPU (Central Processing Unit) as we believe it would be unfair for user’s wealthy in equipment to benefit more than those who don’t have such tools available. The BGX reward, directly flows back into the value of BGX coin holders, in proportion with their current stake. This means coin holders make the money. BitcoinGenX is having a fantastic marketing team which will plan a customized beneficial package to the small and large businesses. It will be designed to have to drop down boxes whereby the users can select their target markets, even targeted media platforms, with easy advertising package solutions to meet their goals. BitcoinGenX Management Team The BitcoinGenX management team is committed to expanding the blockchain platform to be at the forefront of changing the world to a more efficient and safe place using these technologies. We monitor the industry and comply with regulations while being transparent with the community at large. With our products being made, we aim to dominate our niche markets by creating easy to adopt, functional products to ensure the industry’s success. We are creating a hub (all-in-one) digital marketing platform, whereby large corporations, small businesses, and individuals alike can all bring about big savings and promote their products or services with our easy marketing process. We will also be creating a website that links together our centralized and decentralized exchanges, with offering a choice between the two, as we feel it should be the users choice. All fees are payable with BitcoinGenX coin for both platforms. BitcoinGenX was interviewed by our team prior to this publication. Here are their responses to questions we posed: Question: How and when did you get the idea? BitcoinGenX: When we saw the need for decentralization in digital marketing to help fuel e-commerce, we knew there was a need for an all in one marketing platform to make it easier for companies/projects or people to spread their word. Question: Why do you think investing in Crypto is profitable? BitcoinGenX: Because it is largely unknown and highly volatile. Soon we will see stability in the market but then mass adoption will make sure the value will continue to go up for the strong projects. Question: What makes it stand out from the other ICO’s? BitcoinGenX: Our digital marketing platforms that are being built on decentralization, our clients can integrate into their business model and leverage the powerful network effect of the blockchain. This allows companies to build their own unique economic ecosystems and incentivized early community contribution and adoption in an unparalleled fashion. Question: What suggestions would you like to share for others who are looking forward to starting a company? BitcoinGenX: Follow your dreams and passions, no one else is going to have the same as you! Question: How can World readers get involved in what you are doing? BitcoinGenX: If you would like to know more about how you can take part in the community, please check our discord forums and let us get to know you and your skill set. We’re open for extending our team with great personalities. Question: What are the next steps in the project? BitcoinGenX: We are working hard on the web wallet development, so it can be released as soon as possible. Also, we are planning to get listed on CoinMarketCap and masternodes.online. CONCLUSION BitcoinGenX (BGX) is creating a hub (all-in-one) digital marketing platform whereby large corporations, small businesses, and people alike can all bring about big savings and promote their products or services with the easy marketing process. BitcoinGenX has a fast blockchain and the wallet including green protocol and zerocoin protocol is safe and secure. Finally, a fair distribution which means those daily rewards are split equally amongst all node holders. Click here to know more about BitcoinGenX.

  • I’m a computer science major (payed for by the GI bill, the only thing I got out of the military) and in my second year. In two years I have only taken a grand total of 3 CS (Computer Science) classes. What I have taken is a lot of Gen. Ed., learn to love the country classes like American Government, American Literature, American History, etc.. I see a lot of computer companies (both development and design) that pay no mind to degrees. They want to see portfolios, freelance work, internships, GitHub profiles, things of that sort. But I’m not getting that out of college. What I have got is a partial structure, an understanding of what I need to learn that you won’t find on the hundreds of websites out there that purport to “teach programming”. (They don’t.)  However, it’s very slow going and doing small programs to prove concepts isn’t impressive to employers. I have plans for a site that takes teaching programming seriously and goes far beyond the throwaways like Codecademy and (ick) “The New Boston”.  The problem is the cost and time. (Most of my time is currently dedicated to keeping up with calculus.) I was actually in talks with a design company for stage one development that might give me a jumping point so that I could start posting what curriculum I’ve written. No luck, in the end, they decided my budget was not good enough. =/ But I digress. Here’s what I’m getting at. Many people within the liberty movement have an interest in computers or have jobs related to them. (I’ve met many programmers and developers who subscribe to liberty.) Here’s the questions for your consideration: Did you attend a college or university? Did you get a degree or drop out? If not, do you feel like you could do better with a degree? If so, do you feel like it was a valuable use of your time and money? What would you say to someone who struggles to keep up with keeping their grades up and using what little free time they have to actually learn something? Note: This is my first post to Liberty.me, it’s not meant to be well structured, it’s just something for consideration and discussion. 🙂
