The Best Bitcoin Articles *Not* On Bitcoinist In 2018

Here at Bitcoinist we try to present you with the most comprehensive selection of relevant news stories in the crypto-verse. But sometimes great articles appear that don’t quite fit into our news cycle. So here is a small selection of some of the best pieces *not* on Bitcoinist this year, as suggested on Twitter.


1. Planting Bitcoin

Who doesn’t love a good origin story? But if you have superhero fatigue from all the Marvel movies, check out Dan Held’s origin story of Bitcoin. In it he draws parallels between the birth of Bitcoin and planting a tree.

It’s a fantastic and becomes available as a short-story e-book in early 2019.

2. How Bitcoin Functions As Property Law

An explanation of Bitcoin as analogous to real-estate , written by a law professor, may not sound particularly accessible. But this paper by Eric D. Chason gives a great insight into the workings of Bitcoin.

He describes transactions as ‘deeds’ we must verify, and explains time-stamping with the example of Satoshi Nakamoto updating his will.

3. and 4. The Workings Of -of-Work

Bitcoin, Chance and Randomness

Hugo Nguyen’s article explores the importance of randomness to Bitcoin and its role as the ‘Proof’ in Proof-of-Work

Proof-of-Work Is A Decentralised Clock

Gregory Trubetskoy’s blog post explains how the blockchain utilizes PoW, simply as a distributed decentralized clock. Gregory describes the other functions of Proof-of-Work as essentially herrings and poses the suggestion that a better name might be Proof-of-Time.

5. Invalid Blocks Need Not Apply

This HackerNoon article by StopAndDecrypt should help to all sleep easier in our beds at night. In looking at security, it explains why Bitcoin is an “impenetrable fortress of validation.”

6. Unpacking Bitcoin’s Social Contract

Hasu’s article explains how social contracts work with regards to fiat money, and how Satoshi Nakamoto used technology to implement this in a new improved way.

7. The Three Economic Eras Of Bitcoin

Okay, while not technically published this year, you may have missed this article from December 2017. Rusty Russell examines the past, present, and of Bitcoin, as laid out in its mathematics and consensus rules.

The ghost of Bitcoin-past, with its negligible fees, noble aims, and a dearth of respectable uses, may now seem a fairy tale. Christmas-future, Bitcoin economics are dominated by fees, rather block rewards, is still about ten years away.

But when it comes to Christmas-presents, you can still stuff stocking with bitcoin, you very much.
