Gogo Coin:
A Bitcoin Gift Card Your Grandma Can Buy


A couple years ago I toyed with the idea of following the Bitcoin convention circuit. I ran around like a madman trying to shake as many hands and exchange as many business cards as possible. While I eventually decided that the madness wasn’t for me, it wasn’t without its benefits. One such benefit is an […]

Bitcoin vs Cutting the Cord:
Dish Network Adopts Bitcoin and I Don’t Care


In early 2012 I began an experiment that continues to this day: I cut the cord. I’ve been living without cable or satellite TV for a little over two years now and most days I don’t miss it at all. Today, though, I feel conflicted – because today, Dish Network is accepting Bitcoin. 1 tip so […]

Cold Storage: Part 1

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Cold Storage

Naysayers are quick to remind the world that once, there was an entire marketplace dedicated to exchanging bitcoins for drugs and that as fast as it got shut down more spawned to take its place like the Hydra of legend. Thanks to this all-too-common attitude I’ve begun to […]
