Is Silicon Valley The Nextdetroit?

Is Silicon Valley The Nextdetroit?

The widening tech gap suggests this party could have a nastyhangover [Ed note: This was written before the latest Intel Meltdown/Spectre scandals] Even before the latest iPhone scandal , Apple users werent the only ones noticing a disappointing drop in quality coming out of the west coast these days. Technology doesnt stay fresh forever and perhaps years of benign neglect and a touch of haughtiness is finally catching up with them. Its not hard to see how these sorts of disasters can happen in a rigid west coast corporate culture where being a team player is everything. When you are perched on the summit you dont dare move because every direction is down . Ironically, quality may have been better back in the days of move fast and break things. Particularly now that the industry is dominated by a small handful of entrenched players sitting atop unimaginable wealth and power, its probably time to reflect on previous golden eras of US economic hubris. Past iPhone performance is no guarantee of futureresults When Alan Mulally left Boeing to try to fix Ford, he remembers being confronted by the same sort of perpetual boardroom happy-talk we now see in tech: I remember the first couple weeks, we got the process going, everybody is kind of getting familiar with it, and it seemed like it was OK. And then all the stop light charts started to get filled in and everything was green, and I stopped the meeting and I said, Fellas and ladies, we just lost $12 billion! And everything is green? Arent there just a few things that need special attention? But the dot com naysayers were wrong! No one is losing money (except all the profitless unicorns) the bust of 2000 was a passing blip and the west coast is once again at the epicenter of a glorious New Era. Apple has its spaceship, Amazo Continue reading >>

This Meetup Is Building A Way For You To Bet On The Cryptocurrency Market

This Meetup Is Building A Way For You To Bet On The Cryptocurrency Market

Twenty-three-year-old organizer Jake Vartaniansaid when he first heard about bitcoin, he immediately when to his local CVS and used the red Moneygram phone to order some. When I was 18, I remember reading a news article about bitcoin. As soon as I heard about the concept I thought, This is it. Vartanian told us over the phone Tuesday. Five years later, Vartanian says cryptocurrencies have become his main focus. So when he moved to Warrenton, Va., last month for a marketing job with Brooklyn-based blockchain entertainment studioSingular DTV, Vartanian rebooted a dead cryptocurrency meetup and began designing the betting project. (Singular DTV has a satellite office in Warrenton.) The project is a smart contract, or a contract that executes itself, being built on the Ethereum blockchain. Users will pay a small buy-in ($5) for a fraction of an Ether coin. Then the contract will allow people to pick which new cryptocurrency they want to bet on with their buy-in. Over a five-day window, the contract calculates the exchange rate from the Ether coin buy-in to the chosen cryptocurrency. The goal is for your cryptocurrency to become more valuable over the week. Its winner take all for whoever picks the currency with the highest percent market capital increase. Vartanian hopes to have a minimum viable product by the end of the month. About a dozen people attend the Cryptocurrencies 2.0 meetup regularly, Vartanian said,and itattracts a range of professionals from developers to patent lawyers. But we could actually really use one or two Javascript developers, admitted Vartanian. In the future, he says there are other ways people could play with cryptocurrencies, such as betting on which users can choose the best currency or increasing the buy-in to show people how the market capit Continue reading >>

How I (almost) Made Millions In Bitcoin

How I (almost) Made Millions In Bitcoin

What to know about the crypto-craze before it implodes. Its a lazy Sunday morning away from my family, Im sitting in a hotel room in Montreal, and Ive got $160,000 in my pocket. Or, rather, my pocket. Im staying in the neighborhood known locally as the McGill Ghetto, thanks to its proximity to the citys famous university. My room is large with a kitchen and living area but not fancy. The money is tied up in cryptocurrency and Im not ready to cash out. With a few mouse clicks, I could liquidate my positions and transfer the proceeds (minus fees) into my bank account overnight. After paying capital gains tax, Id have six figures in legally earned legal tender. But heres the rub: Twenty-four hours earlier, my portfolio was worth less than $80,000. Overnight, one particular cryptocurrency a low-cap privacy coin called Verge caught fire with the Asian markets. By the same time tomorrow, that $80,000 might evaporate. Or it may double again. 6 People on How They Spent Their Bitcoin Fortunes Welcome to the wild world of cryptocurrency, an impossibly young global financial market that runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Especially in recent months, the media has become feverish over bitcoin, ethereum, and Initial Coin Offerings, as breathless reporters publish stories of college seniors turned millionaires thanks to tiny investments made during their freshman years. The reality is far less romantic. For every 1,000-times windfall, thousands more investments have gone south, wiping out trading accounts and nest eggs. As a bitcoin enthusiast since 2013 and casual crypto trader since 2015, Ive had my share of euphoric wins and heart-crushing losses. But Im also a grown man with a family I dont Google sports cars when Im ahead; my dreams involve 529 plans and down payments. And Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Meetup At Innovathens

Bitcoin Meetup At Innovathens

On February the 12th, anyone who is interested in bitcoin and its technology will have the chance to meet with fellow bitcoin enthusiasts in the Technopolis in the city of Athens. The Bitcoin Community in Greece faces a huge problem regarding the adoption of BTC in small businesses and enterprises, so we spoke to the organizer in order to learn his opinion about it. As a lot of people in the world have the right to learn and understand the Bitcoin world, the Greeks also have the same right. The Greek Crisis has already hit and the political and financial systems are wounded in a very serious way by the Greek debt. With the people, and only with them, lays the power to change this bad situation, this cannot be done by a miracle. Few people in our world could make things better for the rest of us and they deserve our support, like the Greek Bitcoin Community. They struggle to explain to individuals and businesses how this technology works, and how they can benefit. On February the 12th, the Bitcoin Greek Community invites you into the Technopolis in the city of Athens to present, discuss and meet each other in a nice atmosphere. Correspondent of Cointelegraph asked Mr. Chatzinikolaou Dimos . about it and the decisions to be made for the future. Cointelegraph: What do you say about this Meetup Group? Dimos Chatzinikolaou: If we divide the transnational bitcoin community into national groups, we may declare ourselves as a Greek bitcoin community. There is a minor, hence rapidly growing, interest from the Greek people to learn about this new innovation on money and there is no doubt that the capital controls which have been put in place from the banking industry last summer is pushing forward this interest. There is a handful of businesses and organizations that are working Continue reading >>

Ethereum Preps For Its Big Upgrade

Ethereum Preps For Its Big Upgrade

Tap here to turn on desktop notifications to get the news sent straight to you. 07/18/2016 08:47 pm ETUpdatedJul 19, 2017 If you use the official Ethereum wallet/browser Mist, community leaders on Reddit say now is the time to upgrade to the newest version ahead of Wednesday's planned hard fork of the network. The hard fork will allow the return of more than $50 million worth of Ether to participants in a third party project, the DAO, that uses Ethereum's blockchain to function. The DAO was hacked, causing the funds to move, but not leave Ethereum's network. In the past, hard forks have been orchestrated successfully by Ethereum's developers. The upgrade to Homestead, the platform's current iteration, was carried out via hard fork. Ethereum is currently the #2 cryptocurrency network after Bitcoin, with a current market capitalization of about US $910 million as I file this. I upgraded to the newest version, Mist 0.8.1 , with little trouble. Upon first boot-up of Mist, it helpfully asked me (see sample screenshot below) if I wanted to activate the new chain, scheduled to kick in at Block #1,920,000. I selected Yes, give me the sweet hard fork already and let's move on with this monstrously ambitious, global project. As I like to remind my friends and YouTube viewers, I still like Bitcoin and I still own some bitcoins. But there's something happening within Ethereum that simply continues to fascinate me. The Ethereum meetups in various cities all over the world are intriguing: there's a revival feel to them, as if people are waiting for something truly great or long overdue to arrive. Very little discussion of price - it's considered gauche, in somewhat stark contrast to some other crypto communities. Turnouts are big; rooms heat up from the sheer density of bodies and - Continue reading >>
