Crypto Advocate Patrick Byrne Resigns as CEO of Overstock

Crypto Advocate Patrick Byrne Resigns as CEO of Overstock

Noted crypto advocate Patrick Byrne has resigned as CEO of Overstock.
Per a letter of resignation and company statement posted on Twitter Aug. 22, Patrick Byrne has stepped down as CEO of Overstock.
Having led crypto-friendly e-commerce at the company, including the launch of tZero, Overstock’s crypto token platform, and Overstock’s acceptance of Bitcoin payment, Byrne’s resignation follows the announcement of disappointing Q1 earnings for 2019.
More directly, Byrne cited the recent announcement of his controversial relationship with Maria Butina as the impetus for cutting ties with Overstock.
In his letter of resignation, Byrne reaffirmed his faith that “the blockchain revolution will reshape key social institutions.” However, it is questionable to what degree this faith will direct Overstock’s future in Byrne’s absence.
TZero reported pre-tax losses of $12.6 million in Q4 of last year, which did not diminish Byrne’s apparent confidence in the initiative.
Per an Overstock press release issued later on Aug. 22, Jonathan Johnson will fill Byrne’s shoes as CEO on an interim basis, while Kamelia Aryafar will take Byrne’s place as board member and executive vice president of Overstock Retail.
In September of last year, Cointelegraph reported on Byrne’s sale of over $20 million of stock in Overstock, in response to which he assured the public “don't worry, I'm still in the game.”

Dear Brian Armstrong, You’re Choices Will Cost Me Financially!

EDIT: Coinbase has clarified that the event that they are ordered by the court to hand over buy/sell records to the IRS, they will not report movement of bitcoin out Coinbase as sale of bitcoin. There were posts that seemed to indicate that all transfers would be reported as sales. Coinbase’s has clarified that this is for your internal report generation incase you need it. It will not be reported to the IRS that way.
Brian,
Coinbase’s choice to report bitcoin transfers as taxable events, even when no sale occurred, will cost me significant amounts of money.
Like most bitcoin users, I’ve anticipated scrutiny and therefore sought to be above board in everything I’ve done. I’ve spent an average of $1200/year to have a well-respected accounting firm handle the bitcoin portion of my taxes to make sure that everything was done to the best of our abilities.
This has involved reconstructing MTGOX data after those records became inaccessible to me (I had to use the leaked database to reconstruct tax records). This has involved meticulously recording spending at gyft, newegg, overstock, etc.
The guidance we were given was that bitcoin is property. As such, I kept records as if bitcoin was property. Any time I exchanged bitcoin for dollars or in-kind trade for products (newegg for example), I’ve recorded those events and kept receipts.
Like many other early bitcoin enthusiast, I’ve also cycled through many storage solutions. I have 4 hardware wallets which have held bitcoin and some of which I’ve re-seeded. I’ve used Shamir’s secret sharing, paper wallets, co-pay’s multisig, Armory, etc. My Armory had syncing issues at the end of their development lifecycle. I had to sweep private keys and transfer to hardware wallets. To do this, I believe I did a factory reset on an android device, installed mycelium, and immediately used that device to do the sweeping. I am unaware, but doubtful, that I still have that wallet, because it was a temporary tool to transfer from one place to another.
If bitcoin is property, this would be similar to me loading folding chairs into my truck and moving them from one storage shed to another. This obviously would not be a taxable event, and therefore I am uncertain which of these actions I kept records for.
Coinbase’s decision to equate transfers with sales is a complete reversal of the IRS guidance. Coinbase’s reporting will not change IRS policy, but by reporting transfers as sales, you will be adding significant confusion to any potential audit.
The impact of your reporting is likely to cause an audit to become much more expensive. My 2013 taxes were already on the order of 60 pages long (I’m an employee with W2 wages, so my taxes would normally only be a few pages long).
The confusion you are adding may cause me to have to reconstruct even more records, many of which may only be partial, simply because moving property from one storage location to another is not a taxable event, and therefore I will only have partial records. I should be able to reconstruct end points, but again this may only be partial.
As someone who had tried to be as above board as possible, if you equate transfers as sales and report them to the IRS as such, you will significantly increase the complexity and cost of any audit I may face. In fact, you’re almost certainly likely to cause an audit because your records will no longer match my records.
Of course, I can always explain to an auditor that nature of bitcoin, and I’m sure my accountant will argue that we’ve taken all the necessary steps for reporting the purchase and sale of property, but your decision already puts us in a defensive position and we’ll be arguing in an uphill battle. I can only imagine that the auditor says “But Coinbase said you sold those bitcoin!”
I have no idea what an audit could cost me. I already anticipated a likelihood that I would get audited, but at minimum your company’s decisions will significantly increase the complexity and cost of my audit.
Furthermore, if you’re companies position was that you were going to report transfers as sales, I would have possibly treated your wallet much differently. I’ve been asked multiple times when transferring out of Coinbase to check a box is I own the destination wallet. What was the purpose of this box? I had almost no regard for price movements when transferring out of Coinbase because I assumed they were not taxable events. As we all know, bitcoin is extremely volatile. Sometimes I leave funds in there for a few months before transferring to cold storage. Why? Because your company has great security and I wasn’t worried about them sitting in your custody for a few months.
Had I known these would be reported by you as taxable events (which I do not believe they are), I may have considered price movements, end of the year timelines, etc. I don’t know what decisions I would have made differently, but the point is that your company appears to have been recording transfers as sales, while most in the bitcoin and accounting world were assuming something else. This loss of information on your customer’s account will potentially cost them money.
The fix is simple. Report purchases and sales to the IRS in whatever form the courts order you to. But your company needs to make a distinction between taxable events and movement of property!
With Regards, Coinbase Customer

Bitcoin Tax Attorney here. I am around for discussion or questions related to Bitcoin Tax treatment, including tax planning opportunities for businesses and individuals.

Anyone have issues with their tax returns due to lots of Bitcoin usage or from the sale and disposition of Bitcoin? Anyone looking for any tax favorable planning opportunities? Either as an individual who sold a bunch for profit or for a business who has begun accepting Bitcoin for the first time.
My practice has focused on helping both individuals and businesses for Bitcoin tax related matters for much of this year. I am available for discussion here in the comments, and for more specific matters, please PM me.
I'm a tax attorney based in Los Angeles and big bitcoin fan and miner going way back. I've been lurking hear on bitcoin for years. I was a miner back in 2011-2013, build my own custom rigs with 6 Radeon 7970s.
Then I was among the first to receive a couple of BFL's 5 gh/s cubes and then one of the first 50 Gh/s. (I knew that was a lawsuit waiting to happen against BFL. Scoundrels) Good memories all around. I still have my spreadsheets keeping track of what I mined. Altogether, with the pools, I mined over 100 bitcoin. Alas, I sold many of them when the price was $300 or less.
All this time I was focusing on tax law, finishing Tax LLM courses in Los Angeles. So, it was inevitable that the two interests would merge. I ended up writing a proposal to treat Bitcoin as currency as opposed to property.
Here is a link to my paper on this which Tax Notes published as their cover story a few months back, which was completely unexpected but kinda cool to see this niche interest rewarded.
Paper: "Bitcoin: Property or Currency?" http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2708188
Got to go on a State Bar Delegation to DC to enlighten folks with the power to actually do something about it. Delegation met with IRS Chief Counsel, including people who drafted the Notice treating Bitcoin as property. Also folks from Treasury Dept, Senate Finance Committee, House Ways & Means, etc.
I urged for currency treatment (as opposed to property treatment) of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, in fact anything built on the basis of the Blockchain meant as a mode to transact money.
If any of you guys had to do your taxes this year, and have bought and spent a lot of Bitcoin, or even just mined and sold, you probably know some of the difficulties I'm alluding to without even mentioning.
Should we really have to calculate capital gains/loss on the purchase of a cup of coffee at your neighborhood cryptocurrency friendly coffee shop, for example? Even with purchases at Overstock.com or Dell, you were technically supposed to calculate capital gains and losses and provide supporting backup on your tax returns this year.
What a practical and administrative nightmare for both taxpayers and for the IRS who has to wade through this. I feel like some of what I wrote got through to them. As we all know, government lags far behind emerging technologies. But they did seem genuinely interested, and I do not believe my paper and proposal fell upon deaf ears.
I have my own law office these days and work with or for many attorneys on various matters, just as I have a number of attorneys assist me. No such thing as a pure solo practitioner these days. No man can afford to be an island.
This tax year has been very rewarding and helped a great many tax clients with Bitcoin issues from anything to bookkeeping to strategic planning for the short-term as well as long-term.
Any accountant knows the terms LIFO and FIFO, but there's seemingly no hard and fast rules for measurement for when a particular bitcoin was bought and sold for purposes of calculating gains/losses. Also, no hard and fast rules as to where the particular market price of Bitcoin is found on a particular day.
Everything is loose, open to interpretation by the tax payer, and with strategic guidance, can prove incredibly tax favorable ultimately. It is wise for a business to accept Bitcoin for many reasons, including that broad opportunity for interpretation while staying true to the property guidance.
So, it is ultimately very taxpayer friendly due to this broad leeway. More than that, treating bitcoin and cryptocurrencies as property rather than currency is also taxpayer friendly by definition. Your bitcoin gains will only be taxed at your capital gains rate instead of as ordinary income, a higher rate.
I assisted a lot of individuals and even businesses who accepted bitcoin for the first time this year. I intended to post on /bitcoin before to offer my services and to also just allow people to send me questions, which I am happy to discuss in private for free.
I got pretty slammed up to tax day, but I'm free now. Just hit me up by private message or shoot me an email at thebitcoinlawyer at g mail.
Any questions or thoughts, I'll be around. I'm often around /bitcoin anyway. Love this community. And if I can serve as help for any of you, all the better. Thanks.
TL;DR Bitcoin Tax Attorney available for discussion on tax issues here in comments, or for more personalized issues, hit me up by PM

It is hard to believe, but it has been an entire decade since Bitcoin was created and launched into circulation. While many think that Bitcoin, like crypto market itself, is nothing more than a bubble, the truth is that this technology is still very much alive. Not only that, but it keeps growing and developing, with new altcoins appearing all the time. A lot still has to be done for the industry to reach its full potential but the market has grown and matured a considerably since Satoshi’s initial endeavour, and there are the reasons to celebrate.
Later in 2018, it became clear that the European Union started to take the lead in crypto market. London Stock Exchange along with other companies decided to participate in the development of exchanges that support security tokens. As a result DX.Exchange is set to become the first regulated tokenized securities exchange. Powered by the NASDAQ exchange protocol this platform will offer several existing securities listed on the NASDAQ, NYSE, Hong Kong Exchange and Tokyo Stock Exchange in a tokenized format.
Intercontinental Exchange, the operator of the New York Stock Exchange is planning to launch Bakkt, a federally regulated market which will enable institutions and consumers to buy, store and sell crypto assets. Bakkt recently raised $182.5 million from Microsoft, the Boston Capital Group, and other 10 partners and investors, and aims to bring high levels of trust and transparency to the market.
Online retail giant Overstock has announced plans to pay a portion of its annual taxes in Ohio using Bitcoin. Ohio became the first state in US to allow taxes to be paid in Bitcoin, and Overstock became the first major company to take advantage of Ohio’s openness to cryptocurrency.
ConsenSys has partnered with computer chip maker AMD and Abu Dhabi-based investment firm Halo Holdings to develop a new cloud computing infrastructure based on blockchain technology. AMD chips have been popular in running blockchain networks, in particular by retail customers looking to mine cryptocurrencies.
The China Banking Association, the country’s self-regulatory body for the banking sector, is launching a new blockchain-based platform for trade finance. Over 10 major banks in the region have signed up for the platform, including HSBC (China), Bank of China, China Merchants Bank, China Postal Savings Bank, among others.
21 cryptocurrency exchanges have joined the Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Association, a self-regulatory organization that oversees the crypto sector, aiming to create industry-wide investor safety standards.
Currently, Ethereum is the market’s best performing altcoin, as it is trading up over 15% at its current price of $162. Ethereum’s bullish performance over the past several weeks is the result of its upcoming Constantinople upgrade scheduled to occur around January 16th, which will make Ether more efficient.
A top executive in the PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) crypto division predicts that more institutional players will announce cryptocurrency projects in 2019.

We accept bitcoin and wrote about it's impact on our business and comparison to Paypal

I wrote this for small businesses and startups looking to potentially accept bitcoin. The original can be found here for sharing.
It has been a year and a half since we enabled customers to buy with bitcoin on our website. I felt it would be useful to write an overview of how it compares to our other payment methods and our general experiences / insight. I first got into bitcoin at the end of 2012 and my previous startup was in the industry. As a retailer, we can see the direct impact price has over how likely someone will spend their bitcoins and its benefits in terms of payment processing fees charged by financial institutions.

Adding Bitcoin as a Payment Option - Is it worth it?

The short answer is yes! There are many reasons to accept bitcoin as a payment option. First off, additional revenue. We have received $7,402 worth of bitcoin orders since launch. A large majority of that is likely from purchases that we would not have received if we hadn't added it. From a financial perspective, it makes a lot of sense.
The bitcoin community is filled with very loyal and supportive people. They love seeing websites accept BTC on your store and their online communities (most notably /bitcoin) allows open discussion about purchases made with bitcoin and the stores that accept them. That community is currently followed by over 175,000 subscribers and is a worthy marketing channel. The biggest factor to increasing bitcoin sales is interacting and catering to that community and making their experience amazing. I personally am a part of it so it was easy but in practice it should be simple for newcomers as well.
Pro-tip: We don't recommend spamming your links on their boards. The best way to market to redditors is to 1. introduce the fact that you're accepting bitcoin, 2. give them a customer experience worth telling friends about. Email your bitcoin customers just to say hi and discuss it. We take a different approach in general with our customecommunity relations and feel getting personal is the best method for success.
You can really standout and gain fans by making products specifically for the bitcoin community. We licensed and sell a funny bitcoin shirt based on a popular ad campaign on reddit.
We receive our largest amount of bitcoin sales during Bitcoin Black Friday, which is an event catered towards special bitcoin discounts. Signing up to BTC Black Friday is free and simple as well. Marketing-wise, it has been a common practice to announce you accept bitcoin as a standalone PR agenda as well. News websites are more likely to pick the story up (although we personally don't interact with the media ourselves, I know we could leverage it if we wanted to). Overstock has done a specifically remarkable job at this.
Lastly, the fees are at least half (or zero if you accept it directly without a third-party service) of standard payment processors. We have Coinbase integrated into our website and our fees are only ~1%. It gets a little more complicated when tax season comes, so additional expenses may occur if you liquidate the bitcoin into fiat cash. In the US, selling your bitcoin sales under 1 year are taxed at your regular income bracket which can dramatically increase the cost. We personally HODL (common joke on the term "holding" your bitcoin) onto the bitcoin from sales, so we haven't incurred these tax implications.

Bitcoin Processing Fees Compared to Paypal

I was shocked and rather pissed off earlier this year after completing a full financial analysis of our revenue and expenses. I learned that Paypal was charging us ~5%... 5% of all payments made through their damned service... in fees for the privilege to use them. I realized that having a merchant account didn't lower your fees compared to being a regular member. You have to dig into the settings and click one button to turn on the lowered fee prices. After doing so, we are now charged ~2.6% in sales fees.
This is pretty standard for regular payment processing but I felt the way they handle this is a scam. The fact that having a merchant account doesn't automatically give you merchant fees is ridiculous. If you use Paypal for sales, dig into the settings and make sure this is turned on.

Bitcoin as a Percent of Sales

Bitcoin isn't going to make a huge impact on your business unless you leverage it to gain widespread media attention. For us, it has still been worth it for the marketing opportunities and ability to service a group of people we identify ourselves with and love.
Bitcoin only totals about half a percent of our total sales this year, but every sale counts. We also are in the low-margin high-volume industry of apparel so it makes sense that our total sales would be on the low end. Businesses that cater to a higher-end customer and commodities like rare metals will likely see a larger increase.
We have noticed a dramatic difference in the number of sales from bitcoin based on bitcoin's current price. When the price is "undervalued" or people are down on their initial investment, they spend less. When the price is up, especially during price surges, we see bitcoin sales almost daily.

Conclusion

Overall, bitcoin in 2015 is a great value proposition. We saw bitcoin sales grow from 2014 to 2015 by 20.4% and I anticipate that to only increase in the future as the payment method becomes more trusted and widespread. Personally, I am bullish on bitcoin's price going above $1,000 again, so the bitcoin we have received from orders hopefully will continue to increase in value as well. We are up on our position overall. Shirts sold during 2015 have sometimes doubled in their value as the price fluctuates.
We will continue to accept bitcoin as one of our three payment methods and can't wait to see what happens in the future.

Top trends for blockchain technology in 2018

Here are a few predictions for 2018 and beyond
  1. Higher Priced Bitcoin and Other Top Alts: Towards the end of 2018, the entire cryptocurrency space may pass $1 Trillion in total market capitalization. A larger bearish scenario would require the market a couple of years to amalgamate, recover and regain its previous momentum.
2. Higher Quality Entrepreneurs and Developers turn to Blockchain: Still many are not entirely convinced about the real uses of the blockchain, but the scenario is changing. Higher token prices will lead to more blockchain startups making highly competitive offers to developers jostling for talent, in synchronization with likes of Amazon, Google, Apple, and Facebook. Working on tokens and protocols will ultimately reshape the startup landscape in Silicon Valley and the rest of the world.
3.
The IRS has launched a John-Doe summons of Coinbase so now every transaction of $20,000 or more has to be reported.
FinCEN recently said that companies selling tokens are money transmitters and must comply with relevant KYC/AML laws. FinCEN had fined Ripple years ago for operating an unlicensed money services business. Several recent token projects have failed to hit their sales or fundraising goals. This year paves the for great diligence in the space – from both community self-governance and regulators. The market will continue to shift to altcoins. The trends will continue to grow when the SEC, IRS, FinCEN, and FTC come with a strict handle. The market will continue to shift to altcoins

MAD Doge - Market Analysis 1/18/2014 (Afternoon Edition) - Such Mining

After days of a somewhat stable market, one thing has gone to a dog eat Doge world and that is mining.

What happened to mining?

Where will the price go?

What we must recall is that DogeCoin, as with the Doge meme is highly affected by the hype behind it

What's the short-term outcome?

Halving - The Rocket Booster

News:

I'll end this with a question: Who do you think should start accepting DogeCoin?
SHIBE ON!

    1. Great analysis by singularity and jessquit on how anti-btc trolls shifted: "suddenly last year they all disappeared, and a new type of bitcoin user appeared who were fully in support of bitcoin but they just so happened to support every single thing Blockstream and its employees said and did." (102 points, 50 comments)
    2. Don't fall for EDA Dragons Den FUD. EDA is a powerful weapon that could kill off or cripple the segwit chain for good. Legacy coin has no EDA crash barrier as this article explains. This is why small blockers use FUD us to disarm the EDA (78 points, 118 comments)
    3. Roger Ver CEO of bitcoin.com says that from his point of view the segwit2x split just gives him more coins to sell for the Bitcoin Cash version which he thinks is the more useful Bitcoin @3min41s mark (71 points, 33 comments)
    4. Proof the new Dragons Den plan could be to try to split BCC with an EDA change. Mrhodl is confirmed Dragons Den, and Cobra Bitcoin is the leader of bitcoin.org which is making enemy lists for big block supporting businesses. (70 points, 47 comments)
    5. Right now segwit2x (BT2) is trading for $1143 and segwit1x (BT1) is $3070 on Bitfinex futures markets. Even with not the greatest terms, you would expect 2x to be much higher. I believe this bodes well for BCC. (61 points, 112 comments)
    6. The other day people were suggesting we do an EDA change before the November 2x fork. Here is why I think that is a terrible idea, and why we should only consider EDA change AFTER the 2x fork. (58 points, 40 comments)
    7. "Nick, Adam and others saw the flaw in the system being that they could not ensure one vote one person.. The flaw in that reasoning is assuming that one vote one person was ever a goal. Miners act economically not altruistically." (57 points, 14 comments)
    8. Original chain is now only 4.8% more profitable than Bitcoin Cash chain after the most recent EDA adjustment on BCC. Very normal blocktimes. Where is the EDA dragons den FUD now? (53 points, 33 comments)
    9. Great Explanation from Peter Rizun at 6min mark, on why Segregated Witness no longer fits the Definition of Bitcoin in the Whitepaper as a Chain of Signatures. (51 points, 19 comments)
    10. Right now segwit2x is $650 and segwit1x is $3906. Search for BT1 and BT2 on this page and you can see the futures prices. (51 points, 102 comments)
  7. 640 points, 3 submissions: BeijingBitcoins
    1. "Am I so out of touch?" (441 points, 163 comments)
    2. Bitcoin Cannot Be Only a Store of Value - excellent article by OpenBazaar dev Chris Pacia (189 points, 47 comments)
    3. Interesting research paper: Troops, Trolls and Troublemakers: A Global Inventory of Organized Social Media Manipulation (10 points, 2 comments)
  8. 622 points, 2 submissions: routefire
    1. "Everyone who supported UASF and now complains about S2X out of fear of confusion/lack of mandatory replay protection is a hypocrite. UASF did not have ANY replay protection, not even opt-in. UASF did not even have wipe-out protection!" (394 points, 133 comments)
    2. While /bitcoin was circle-jerking to the idea that no exchange would list the SW2x chain as BTC, Bitcoin Thailand's comment to the contrary was removed from the very same thread! (228 points, 70 comments)
  9. 510 points, 6 submissions: BitcoinIsTehFuture
    1. Bitfinex announcement about issuing BT1 & BT2 "Chain Split Tokens" to allow Futures trading. (BT1 = Segwit1x; BT2 = Segwit2x) (172 points, 173 comments)
    2. By proving that it can be done (getting rid of Core) this will set a HUUGE precedent and milestone that dev teams and even outright censorship cannot overtake Bitcoin. That will be an extremely bullish occasionfor all crypto. (149 points, 84 comments)
    3. Bitfinex is going to call Segwit2x coins "B2X" and let Core chain retain "BTC" ticker symbol. Bitfinex is therefore calling Segwit2x an altcoin and Core the "real chain". (138 points, 70 comments)
    4. The goal of all the forks appears to be to dilute investment in the true forks: Bitcoin Cash and Segwit2x. A sort of Scorched Earth approach by Blockstream. They are going to try to tear down Bitcoin as they get removed. (35 points, 11 comments)
    5. Blockstream be like (10 points, 11 comments)
    6. In light of all these upcoming forks, we need a site where you can put in a BTC address and it checks ALL the forks and says which chains still have a balance for that address. This way you can split your coins and send coins carefully. (6 points, 6 comments)
  10. 508 points, 3 submissions: xmrusher
    1. Can we take a moment to appreciate Jeff Garzik for how much bullshit he has to deal with while working to give BTC a long-needed upgrade that Core has been blocking for so long? (278 points, 193 comments)
    2. The very objective article "Bitcoin is not ruled by miners" on the "bitcoin wiki" was added by theymos on 8th of August this year. Nothing strange to see here, just an objective, encyclopedia-quality overview! (155 points, 58 comments)
    3. According to Crooked Greg, Jeff merging opt-in replay protection is "alarming", because it must mean Jeff wants to blacklist people's addresses too. Core devs keep lying and manipulating to stir more drama and further the split in the community. Disgusting! (75 points, 16 comments)
  11. 505 points, 4 submissions: WalterRothbard
    1. Sam Patterson on Twitter: Can anyone explain why miners and CEOs agreeing to a 2mb hard fork was no big deal with the HKA but is a "corporate takeover" with the NYA? (221 points, 85 comments)
    2. Apparently Bitcoin requires trust now - trusting Core. I didn't get that memo. I think I'll opt out. (169 points, 139 comments)
    3. Erik Voorhees on Twitter: Nothing about NYA was secret (106 points, 34 comments)
    4. How much BTC is in segwit addresses? (9 points, 25 comments)
  12. 480 points, 3 submissions: BitcoinXio
    1. Friendly reminder: if you haven't yet, watch this video which shows reddit is gamed and manipulated by professional shills paid by companies with huge million dollar budgets. It is up to our community to defend itself against these bad actors. (325 points, 99 comments)
    2. Blockchain CEO Peter Smith on Twitter: "We've dedicated our lives to building bitcoin products, introduced millions to bitcoin, evangelized, long before it was cool. Enemies?" (in response to Adam Back) (147 points, 47 comments)
    3. Liberty in North Korea: Reddit online community members join forces to assist in the placement of North Korea’s Hermit Kingdom refugees (8 points, 3 comments)
  13. 459 points, 4 submissions: singularity87
    1. The entire bitcoin economy is attacking bitcoin says bitcoin.org! You can't make this shit up. (435 points, 279 comments)
    2. Understanding Bitcoin - Incentives & The Power Dynamic (13 points, 1 comment)
    3. Understanding Bitcoin - What is 'Centralisation'? (9 points, 9 comments)
