would you believe that??? bitcoin is now being used for booking airline tickets
Shocking however true, because the world of crypto-currency expands, therefore will the uses for commerce and exploitation the digital currency to urge no matter you wish. Cue within the personal aviation business. With the demand for crypto-currency rising, a number of the biggest personal jet corporations globally like M2Jets, PrivateFly and TapJets area unit currently acceptive Bitcoin as a style of payment.
I'm Olivier Janssens running for Bitcoin Foundation Board - AMA :)
Posted by Olivier Janssens. Twitter: @olivierjanss https://twitter.com/olivierjanss Hi All, My name is Olivier Janssens, 35 years old, currently living in Monaco. I am running for a board seat because I think having the Bitcoin Foundation in control of core development is dangerous. Core development should be without any political influence. This was the main reason why I also started the $100k USD bounty http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/25sf4f/100000_bounty_for_software_platform_that_can/ which yielded Lighthouse as the winner http://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/29n8o0/ . Lighthouse makes it possible to crowdfund bitcoin core dev through the community. Mike will release it in a couple of weeks, and I will immediately make $50,000 USD available for core dev on the platform. What do I think the Bitcoin Foundation should be doing? Besides becoming fully transparent and broadcasting all of its board meetings live (with time for Q&A from the audience), it should also have a clear public agenda. That agenda should should always have at its core a) more decentralization b) creating positive Bitcoin awareness and c) removing any control over Bitcoin from the Bitcoin Foundation. It would consist of the following items and goals:
Creating global bitcoin awareness and incentivising programs to do so. We should research the most effective ways to promote awareness and test them via trial and error. One idea is for us to mobilize networks of volunteers to create awareness in local neighbourhoods. By making a map of the area and plotting businesses, we can make sure every store and restaurant is visited and informed about Bitcoin. This can be done in combination with providers (such as Bitpay) to provide a monetary incentive. I would also recommend that every time you make a payment somewhere, that you request to pay in Bitcoin. This should be done consistently. Even if the answer is negative, it will create a demand and make vendors aware of the need. There are many more proposals I can suggest in this regard, but you get the idea.
Pointing people in the right direction on how to fund core development. The Bitcoin Foundation should make everyone aware of the need to support the core devs, and suggest the most efficient ways to do so. The Bitcoin Foundation should at no point have core development under its control or exert any direct influence over it. This could be done by creating awareness about platforms such as Lighthouse and any other method the Foundation in good faith believes would help development. The developers, who are currently funded by the Foundation, should be moved to a stable, decentralized platform. Transfer to such a platform should only be done once it exists and has been adequately tested. The community should get full control over what they want to fund in core development.
Guarding and protecting the core principles of Bitcoin: 21 million BTC supply limit, decentralized. anonymity, etc. The core principles important to Bitcoin should be articulated clearly together with the reasons why they matter. These core principles should be defended at all costs. These are the pillars of Bitcoin.
Involving you in all of the above.
Some of my personal values and beliefs: I am a libertarian and voluntaryist at heart. My goal is to create a world that is decentralized and exists as a free society. http://mises.org/library/state-or-private-law-society In my spare time I work on projects that are related to this. I’m also an entrepreneur and investor. I put my money where my mouth is for things I believe in. For example, I donated $10k to protonmail and $12k to liberty.me I was one of the first people to take a private flight paid for in Bitcoin (I got the company to start accepting Bitcoin). http://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-millionaire-olivier-janssens-private-jet-privatefly/ This created a lot of awareness in high society magazines and attracted investors. I’m also one of the victims of MtGox’s demise, and have been working behind the scenes in the last year to find the ones responsible and bring them to justice. I've spent close to 100k USD in legal costs and translations to keep the public aware and provided crucial information to the police. http://www.mtgoxrecovery.com/http://blog.mtgoxrecovery.com/ We are getting close to solving it. I'm the type of guy that normally works in the background and exerts my positive influence from there. You can expect me to protect your interests and, most importantly, the interests of Bitcoin. I believe Bitcoin is the greatest invention since the internet, and have been an early adopter and miner since 2010. Hope to get your support :) Olivier Edit: Link to the BTF forum version https://bitcoinfoundation.org/forum/index.php?/topic/1186-candidate-olivier-janssens/ Edit2: Contact info: Twitter https://twitter.com/olivierjanss Email: oj at protonmail.ch
