Currently there is loads of transactions waiting to get even single confirmation.
OpenDime is an little device that holds BTCs sent into it, until seal on the device is broken and you get private keys to send it out.
Amount of BTC on the machine can be checked by connecting it into any USB port of computer.
OpenDime makes BTC a cash - hand to hand exchanged with no tracks on blockchain.
Of course there is price of this.
Most people use Chrome so wallets like KeepKey or OpenDime make apps dedicated to speak with them if browser is out there.
I Love the world of Crypto Currency because we are a true experiment in free market economics. As someone who despises government interference I look at this new economy in awe because my ideas about how an economy should operate are unfolding in front of my eyes.
It really makes me laugh when I see so many of my friends who are the first ones to say,
there should be a law for that jumping on the Bitcoin, Ethereum and Crypto Currency train. I think deep down inside every Statist has an Anarcho-Capitalist trying to get out. You see, everybody wants the latest and greatest. You know and I know it, yet the masses continually look to governments for approval.
Crypto Currency has shown us that we don't need bureaucrats to create something amazing! Imagine if Vitalik had to wait for government approval to make the hard fo
If you are looking to purchase a drone, you could be looking to spend anywhere between a few hundred to several thousand dollars, depending on what you want to go with. And the tech company DJI has just introduced a much smaller drone than many of the others; going to be sold for roughly $500.
The new drone is expected to arrive in June and it's going to be one of the easiest drones for consumers to operate.
At the moment, some of the drones can be quite difficult for consumers to learn how to operate. What many want is just an easy tool that they can take out of the box and start using, many people don't want to have to invest a lot of time in learning how to fly etc before they can use their drone.
Well, this new DJI Spark drone is said to be so easy that it doesn't require any training in order to u
As I mentioned in a few previous posts, I recently joined our company on a full time basis and therefor time is a differentiating factor in my day. I only have so much time to do specific things to reach my targets on a daily basis. So this morning I dropped of the kids at school and through I will quickly transfer some Steem Backed Dollars to an exchange, convert it to Bitcoin, move the money to another exchange, buy some South African rand and ay it into my account.
To all those not on the Steemit platform and do not know about it. Do yourself a favour, take some time and register an account on the Steemit Soci
Imagine you could carry specific data everywhere - it would always be with you, it would be within you!
What sounds very much like a science fiction movie plot is actually real life:
Their goal is to have a storage system based on DNA working inside a data center until the end of this decade.
The aim is to have a “proto-commercial system in three years storing some amount of data on DNA in one of our data centers, for at least a boutique application" said Doug Carmean at Microsoft research.
After the proto-commercial in 3 years, a fully operational model should be completed within about 10 years from now - at least that's the goal.
The reason is that shrinking the s
Everyone here on steemit and in the crypto-scene knows it - but the mainstream world around us is discovering the endless benefits of blockchains only very slowly.
Last year, IBM already stated that 15% of Banks worldwide would be using Blockchain technology by the end of 2017 - and in recent news, citi bank and JP Morgan have started to integrate Blockchain.
The UN for example is using Blockchain Technology to fairly distribute funds to refugees, and Walmart (in cooperation with **I
Sorry I haven't been able to provide another update about Consensus sooner! It has taken a while to get this video uploaded, but here is the intro session that @dantheman is giving on EOS throughout the conference. It's a great talk and worth spending a half hour to watch. Enjoy! Oh and sorry about the video quality... it was taken on a smartphone.
Robocopwill be patroling the streets of Dubai!
It was created by the Dubai police in cooperation with Google and IBM's supercomputer Watson.
It's officially called a “full-size humanoid service robot” and can be piloted or move autonomously.
It's 1,50m tall, weighs 100kg, rolls around on wheels and has a tablet integrated in its chest where civilians can report crimes.
The robot can function for eight hours with a single charge, and the batteries can be pre-charged and then swapped within seconds.
DARPA ( The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is an agency of the U.S. Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military. Recently, DARPA has developed one kind of adhesive pads with gloves. Using this adhesive pads humans are able to climb vertical glass walls. They will be able to climb walls like geckos.
In the above photograph it was a successful demonstration of the gecko pad. You see in this demonstration, a man is climbing up a 7 meter-high vertical glass wall using adhesive gecko-inspired pads without using any other equipment. The climber only wore a safety belt to avoid accident if any happened, although this wasn’t required.
I would like to tell you about my travel to North Korea.
Back in year 2004 I participated in Swedish Business Mission to DPRK. The aim of mission was to investigate North Korea telecommunications, energy and other important sectors situation and provide guidelines for development.
I spent there 5 days but these days were very interesting and full of impressions. First of all when we arrived to Pyongyang airport mobile phones were collected from us. I do not know why but maybe mobile phones uses the same frequencies as North Korea military is used for communications.
When I left without my mobile phone I realized how we are getting tied with technology. I felt that something is missing - it was very strange that I can not just pick my mobile phone and call to someone.
From airport we were transported to hotel. We stayed in Potongang hotel. As it was stated in hotel prospect it was t
@is everywhere online.
What's your @? I hear at least one of my Spanish students or football/tennis players say this nearly every day. Nobody in my Spanish classes, however, knew what this oft-used symbol was technically called or how it came to use.
In Spanish class, we call it an arroba and we use it to show that something could be of masculine or feminine gender.
Gato = boy cat
Gata = girl cat
Gat@ = boy/girl cat
The use of the popular symbol, however, harkens back to the middle of the second millennium, well before I was prattling on about conjugations and vocabulary.
Many competing theories have came forward about the origin of our mysterious

Florentine Letter or the

For those of you who do not know me I prefer multiplayer games more than single player games. I like being competitive and being able to beat my friends, you know because I am better than them. Anyway these are my favorite multiplayer games please take into account this is just my opinion of games I have had the most fun with. Also I haven't played every game ever so I am sorry if you think some games on this list are better than others, well that sucks.
After recently promising to take steps to boost drivers’ wages, Uber Inc. has admitted that, over the last two-and-a-half years, it “mistakenly” underpaid drivers in New York City.
The company claims it came forward voluntarily after discovering the issue, which, considering how the company has seemingly bounced from one PR crisis to the next, is probably a smart move. Uber's highly-paid communications team has hopefully learned by now that sometimes it's better to get out ahead of the story - because then you can shape it on your own terms. A few months back, the company announced that it had – again, “mistakenly” – underpaid drivers in Philadelphia.
Uber is, somewhat expaseratingly, the most highly valued startup in the world with a valuation of nearly $70 billion, even though it lost nearly a billion dollars in the fourth quarter of 2016, and has been [called “a cash-burning machine” by
Google tries to get a piece of cake on another big market - ease of sending money P2P way. Since 4 years its still not available worldwide - maybe they will make cryptopayments global then if they have issues with CCs?
Anyways, here is how this works.
My greatest teacher and guide, Jacque Fresco has gone away at age 101 on the morning of May 18, 2017.
I have never even had a chance to meet him personally.
Without the knowledge that he has shared to all of us, I wouldn't be who I am right now. He has transformed my life.
This is an awful lose to all human kind but he has not died in the minds of his students.
We will keep his ideas alive and share them with others.
