Inside Bitcoin Lake: Lessons From My Months As A Volunteer With Guatemala’s Groundbreaking Project
A volunteer from Guatemala’s Bitcoin Lake project shares the rewards of working on this circular economy.
Bitcoin is a disruptive technology that has emerged as a fundamental component of the financial industry. My work at Bitcoin-friendly companies has allowed me to observe the many ways in which Bitcoin is transforming the industry. Looking to contribute more, I embarked on a Bitcoin-only journey and joined the non-profit project, Bitcoin Lake.
The Five Lessons I Learned From Ignoring Bitcoin For Years
Lessons from a HODLer fortunate enough to find Bitcoin after passing on the opportunity repeatedly since 2012.
This is an opinion editorial by Konstantin Rabin, a finance and technology writer.
I am one of those who was fortunate enough to find out about Bitcoin more than a decade ago before it gained mainstream attention. Sadly, I am also one of the morons who saw this opportunity, didn’t think too much of it at first and let it fly by.
Hard Lessons In Bitcoin Case Law Show We Must Remain Vigilant
Two similar legal disputes around alleged bitcoin scams show that, while Bitcoin may be incorruptible, human beings are not.
This is an opinion editorial by Phil Snyder, an educator teaching blockchain, Bitcoin and all things media at the University of Houston.
Sam Bankman-Fried, FTX, SOL, CEL, XRP, ETH, etc., are a few of the high-profile crypto scams and scammers we hear about. But there are also many low-profile ripoffs that fly under the mainstream media radar.
Five Lessons I Learned At Bitcoin Amsterdam
The first conference organized by BTC Inc. in the Dutch capital is the most popular Bitcoin-only event in Europe.
This is an opinion editorial by Federico Rivi, an independent journalist and author of the Bitcoin Train newsletter.
Disclaimer: BTC Inc. is the parent company of Bitcoin Magazine, and the Bitcoin Conference.
Bitcoin Amsterdam was a popular event in a symbolic city.
For a long time the European Bitcoin community had hoped for an inclusive event that addressed Bitcoin without scaring off newcomers. A Bitcoin-only event with talks and panels not too technical, accessible to a non-expert audience, was missing in Europe, and Bitcoin Amsterdam, for the first time, addressed this.
Lessons To Consider When Building A Decentralized Future
What can we learn from the 18th century in regards to governance and power when designing a future built on Bitcoin?
This is an opinion editorial by Buck O Perley, a software engineer at Unchained Capital helping build bitcoin-native financial services.
This is part one of a two part article set that describes crypto-governance and the dangers of faction.
I originally wrote this post in late 2017, after the “Big Blockers” had forked off to start their own chain with Bitcoin Cash and Segwit activation but before anything had been settled with SegWit2x.
Bitcoin Independence Day: Luke Dashjr On The Lessons From SegWit That We’re Forgetting
Five years since the first Bitcoin Independence Day, have we forgotten how Bitcoin survived its most existential threat to date?
In a year that has been marked by pontification on what it means to be a “Bitcoin maximalist,” the implosion of numerous centralized “crypto” projects and the excommunication of self-interested Bitcoin influencers, Bitcoin Independence Day is worth celebrating more than ever.
3 Lessons From The Oslo Freedom Forum: 14 Zeroes – Bartolomeo, Nur Khalil, Stark
It’s time to visit Oslo one more time. Bitcoinist keeps mining The Human Rights Foundation’s Oslo Freedom Forum for the content all those other bitcoin sites are not interested in. We are talking about real life here, and we already went to the well a few times – one, two, three, four, five – and came out with gem after gem. All credit goes to Alex Gladstein, who took the time to cut and post these phenomenal one-minute clips.
This time, a Venezuelan tells us about hyperinflation, a Nigerian paints a picture of our hyperbitconized future, and an American pitches the US dollar on the Lightning Network as a worldwide necessity.
3 Lessons From The Oslo Freedom Forum: Privacy & Tax – Odell, Sneidermanis, Nwosu
The Oslo Freedom Forum wasn’t a bitcoin conference, but the Human Rights Foundation made sure that its message was always present. We’ve already featured – one, two, three, four – activists, corporate leaders, and cypherpunks. It’s time for the hard-core bitcoiners to step forward and share their truth and insights. From the evils of CBDCs to the dangers of inflation; from Argentinian to Nigerian history lessons, today’s episode is loaded with information you won’t find in those other crypto sites.
Sit back, relax, and receive these key facts. Toxic bitcoin maximalists get a bad rep, but they might see something everyone else is missing.
3 Lessons From The Oslo Freedom Forum: Bitcoin As A Tool – Mallers, Roem, Fang
The Oslo Freedom Forum delivered some of the most thought-provoking ideas about what makes bitcoin special and valuable beyond mere price. And luckily, the organizers cut these one-minute videos for us to consume said ideas. And even luckier still, Bitcoinist decided to echo them and paint a different picture of the asset our publication is named after.
We’ve already featured people from all over the world – one, two, three – and this new trio is not different. Each one will make a surprising point about the bitcoin network that will seem obvious from now on. The Oslo Freedom Forum made bitcoin thought-leaders see the situation from a different perspective. Let’s read what they came up with.
Don’t Trust Bitcoin Mixers and Other Opsec Lessons From the Darknet
When darknet markets are shut down these days, the arrests don’t generate much fanfare. There’s a day of press at best, and then the media moves on to bigger stories, leaving the fate of the DNM operators unreported as their case grinds through the courts. This is a shame, as the indictments for the accused reveal valuable insights into how law enforcement caught their quarry, providing opsec lessons that every bitcoiner should take to heart.

Hoskinson: Satoshi Did “An Amazing Thing”…But There Are Lessons to Learn
Charles Hoskinson is best known today as a co-founder of both Ethereum and IOHK, where he leads the research, design and development of Cardano. But before these projects, there was Bitcoin. Back in 2013, he was the founding chairman of the Bitcoin Foundation’s education committee and established the Cryptocurrency Research Group.
In an interview with Bitcoin Magazine during the recent StartEngine Summit, Hoskinson began by saying that he views Bitcoin as a series of experiments to try and realize two key concepts:
Ethereum (ETH): Valuable Lessons From The Past
Chart for ETH/USD (1D)
Ethereum (ETH) and those backing it have some valuable lessons to learn from the past. Of course, the one that tops the list is, “you reap what you sow”. How is this relevant? Well, back when Ethereum (ETH) forked off the original Ethereum chain, for every original Ethereum coin you had, you received two coins, ETH and ETC. Now, most of the miners and developers switched over to the new chain but some stuck to the old chain (ETC) out of respect for principles of immutability and decentralization.
Bitcoin Opinion: The Lessons Of A Bearish Market
With my last couple of articles, I’ve taken the discussion away from price and volume, as I wanted to focus on the underlying bitcoin infrastructure and governance model, as well as on the technology developments that will push adoption. I believe it was worth it, as we really need to understand how this new distributed infrastructure and

‘I Think ICO is a Dirty Word’ – Lessons in Compliance from KodakCoin (Interview)
Bitcoinist spoke with Darren Marble, CEO of CrowdfundX, a fintech marketing firm that uses artificial intelligence and digital marketing to help its clients acquire retail investors and shareholders at scale. His company was responsible for designing, producing, and marketing historic Reg A+ IPOs to NASDAQ, NYSE, and OTC Markets Group, as well as Security Token Offers (STOs) such as KodakCoin.
I predict that NASDAQ, the NYSE, or OTC Markets Group will launch a token market. If they don’t, they may become obsolete.
