Bitcoin ATM at Cardiff – Update

After the cancellation of the Satoshi Point ATM at Cardiff in February there is finally an ATM which has been installed at The Castle Emporium. It is a Lamassu model that works both ways with accepting cash for Bitcoin and vice versa. Overall it is an eye-catching machine that looks quite modern  and trendy as far as ATM machines go. I only… Read more →

Launch Event for First Bitcoin ATM at Swansea

The new Satoshi Point Bitcoin ATM has arrived at Swansea, South Wales and it was a great launch event for what is the first Bitcoin ATM in the Swansea area! It is located at Cafe Nisse which is run by the friendly Tino Dzaro who also has an interest in the latest technology. I was given a tour of TechHub… Read more →

Bitcoin 0.5

IBM is creating a Bitcoin clone, but one that is controlled by a third party. This completely misses the point of Bitcoin and would simply serve to create a weaker imitation. I say this because Bitcoin is an open source technology and anyone can contribute and build upon the Bitcoin network. It is a free network that is open for… Read more →

We live in the mechanisation of a modern world where its heart beats to the rhythm of jet… Read more →

Crossing the Chasm

We all ask or ponder about what stage Bitcoin is at in terms of adoption and usage. I think that if we are to answer this question we need to look at models that fit in with the lifecycle of a technology. The process of adoption of a successful technology over time is typically illustrated as a “Bell Curve” as… Read more →

Bull Run in 2015?

As mentioned in my previous post, 2014 has been a good year for the infrastructure of Bitcoin. The fundamentals are still sound and people are still confident about the success of this technology. The price has dropped during 2014 but this was needed as the price was far too obscene when it went above the $1000 mark in late 2013… Read more →

Bitcoin is Evolution not Revolution

I highly recommend the reading of ‘The Innovators’, a book by Walter Isaacson. It covers the digital revolution from the Victorian period with the concept of the modern computer by Ada Lovelace to the present day with the concept and creation of the internet and modern day web. What hits hard in the book is that new ideas and technologies… Read more →
