This is a guest post by Naomi Brockwell. The media tends to focus on doom-and-gloom stories, because sensationalist headlines attract larger audiences. However, when journalists go so far as to misrepresent facts and sway the public in one direction or another, these stories can be dangerous. This is especially true when talking about a new technology that has the potential to change lives for the better. Public opinion can mean the difference between this potential being realised, or crushed completely. That is the situation with Bitcoin. The media frequently talks about Bitcoin now, but often misrepresents the facts. Coverage tends to focus on the negatives. Stories about money laundering, drug trading, exploded exchanges, and price crashes predominate. The coverage rarely […]

Bitcoin has become frequently talked about in the financial media. Despite this the general public is still relatively under informed when it comes to this digital currency. In a January 2014 poll it was found that only 25% of US adults were familiar with Bitcoin. This means that there is still significant room to educate the general public about the advantages of using a peer-to-peer digital currency. To address some of those knowledge gaps here are some of the most common myths about Bitcoin as well some of its key benefits. Myth #1: Bitcoin is no different to any other digital currency There have been many other digital currencies in the past, including Beenz, Liberty Dollars and eGold. However these […]

Last month I attended an interesting Orlando Bitcoin Meetup. The Meetup took place at Bright Learning Academy, a school for special needs students that works with children who need an alternative to traditional school settings. The school takes a technological approach to learning. It’s no mystery that kids learn to understand technology much more easily than we do. That’s just the way things go. Bright Learning Academy is teaching money management and free market principles with Bitcoin technology. They did it before MIT. Last winter, school teacher Robert Lefebure began signing up students for a wallet at Blockchain.info. “The idea, explains Robert, “was to use Bitcoin to teach personal money management and economics because, frankly, it’s hard to understand where […]

This guide is a continuation of a previous article at http://bitcoinmagazine.com/13104/building-bitcoin-economy-stimulate-adoption/ If you or someone in the area has been preaching crypto for a while, you probably have a few nearby businesses accepting Bitcoin by now. This is an important first step, and worthy of celebration over a few Bitcoin beers. Bitcoin evangelism never sleeps, however, so it’s time to grow the seeds you’ve sown into a sustainable Bitcoin economy. But before you get started, heed what I’ve learned from my latest efforts. When you first bring cryptocurrency adoption to a community, it’s necessary to rely on promises of publicity, delivered in the form of organized events and media attention. The novelty will soon wear off, however, and you can’t volunteer […]
