How 1990s libertarians laid the groundwork for cryptocurrency

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, encryption, surveillance, transhumanism

The development of Transhumanism / Extropianism in the final two decades of the 20th century also set in motion the creation of digital cash, including the breakthrough killer app: Bitcoin.

The Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek wanted to denationalize money. David Chaum, an innovator in the field of cryptography and electronic cash, wanted to shield it from surveillance. Their goals were not the same, but they each inspired the same man.

Max O’Connor grew up in the British city of Bristol in the 1960s and ’70s. Telling his life story to Wired in 1994, he explained how he had always dreamed of a future where humanity expanded its potential in science-fictional ways, a world where people would possess X-ray vision, carry disintegrator guns, or walk straight through walls.

Bitcoin hits new all-time high of $72,700 but one index warns we’re in ‘extreme greed’ territory

Posted by in category: bitcoin

The crypto scene continues to remain so hot that bitcoin is hitting one new high after another. It surpassed $72,700 on Monday. This was initially driven by the approval of spot bitcoin ETFs, but is now being pushed higher ahead of a “halving” event, which will limit the amount of new supply put into circulation from bitcoin miners.

Bitcoin has increased 9.5% in the past seven days and is up 50% on the month, according to CoinMarketCap data. The total crypto market cap across all tokens has increased 10% on the week to $2.71 trillion, with bitcoin making up 52.7% of that amount.

There is, of course, no way of telling how high bitcoin can rise during the current bull frenzy. While many are feeling the hopium, there’s at least one indicator that thinks we’re nearing the top of the highs, with price dips to quickly follow.

Bitcoin Blasts Up to Highest Price Ever

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin has crushed its highest price ever, blasting past $72,000 for the first time in its history today.

The news comes after UK regulators announced they wouldn’t stand in the way of the creation of crypto-backed, exchange-traded notes (cETNs), CNBC reports. ETNs are a type of unsecured debt securities that trade on major exchanges, kind of like a stock.

The value of the mainstream cryptocurrency has risen considerably since the beginning of the year, spurred on by its growing acceptance by regulators around the globe and the fading shadow of the FTX collapse.

Bitcoin’s so high, it crashed Coinbase today

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, cryptocurrencies

Bitcoin’s rally is turning out to be bad news for Coinbase, the crypto trading app that has just confirmed some of its customers are seeing a zero balance across their Coinbase accounts. “Your assets are safe,” the firm assured the app’s users via a Status page on its website, adding that its team is investigating the issue and will provide an update shortly. [Update: The company has since said the issues are improving but the app is seeing “heightened traffic.”]

The app’s crash today has to do with the recent demand for Bitcoin, the popular cryptocurrency that recently surged to $60,000 — close to its all-time high last seen in 2021. The price of Bitcoin climbed in the wake of U.S. bitcoin spot ETFs, driving a 42% price rally this month. According to Reuters, this was the largest monthly gain the digital asset had seen since December 2020. As of the time of writing, Bitcoin was up above $61,448, or a 7.66% increase today.

The sharp rise has fueled renewed interest in apps like Coinbase, which allows users to buy, sell, and hold crypto products in a digital wallet. This rapid increase in demand, including from more casual crypto investors, have seemingly contributed to the app’s current issues, as Coinbase says the app is experiencing issues from high traffic.

Space Heater Offers 50% Cash Back On Heating By Training AI In Your Home

Posted by in categories: bitcoin, robotics/AI, space

Most space heaters run electricity through high resistance wires to toast your toes. The Heatbit mini, however, trains large language models, builds AI for large corporations, or mines crypto while it warms up your home. In so doing, it pays its owners up to $28/month while in use.

“What we really do is zero-energy computing,” says CEO Alex Busarov, who I met at Web Summit in Lisbon recently.

Bitcoin mining and AI training—which has increased one million times over the last seven years—together consume more energy than the entire United Kingdom, Busarov says. All of that goes to waste as heat, which then itself often needs to be cooled in a data or compute center, costing yet more energy.
