Hour Exchange: Spending Time in Portland (Maine)
Since 1971, when its convertibility into any precious metal was suspended, the US dollar has been a de facto fiat currency.

Mediazione e Propagazione Memetica: Strumenti dell’economia Diffusa
Di Siddharth Sthalekar. Originale: Memetic Propagation and Mediation: Tools for the Distributed Economy, 6 luglio 2020. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. L’ordine di stare a casa imposto durante la pandemia mi è tristemente famigliare. Mi ricorda il mese di coprifuoco durante le rivolte di Bombay, quando avevo undici anni.

Memetic Propagation and Mediation: Tools for the Distributed Economy
There’s an eerie familiarity to the stay-at-home orders issued during COVID-19. I can’t help but relate this to my experience as an 11 year old during the month-long curfew after the communal riots of Bombay.  Growing up in India, communal life dominated our lives.

Il mercato dei cambi più importante di Bitcoin è scomparso nel nulla… e invece di collassare, i Bitcoin ancora si vendono a 500 dollari! Una moneta robusta, con grandi capacità di ripresa! Un successo! Grande!…
O futuro do Bitcoin é “incerto”? Eu duvido
Uma cobertura jornalística mais razoável do colapso do Mt.Gox, um dos maiores mercados de Bitcoin, seria mais ou menos assim: “Uau! Um dos maiores mercados de Bitcoin da internet acaba de desaparecer e, em vez de entrar em colapso, o Bitcoin ainda é comercializado por cerca de US$ 500! Que moeda robusta e resistente! Que…
Future Of Bitcoin “In Doubt?” I Doubt It.
Sane news coverage of Bitcoin exchange Mt.Gox‘s collapse would look something like this: “Wow! The Internet’s largest Bitcoin exchange just vanished into thin air … and instead of collapsing, Bitcoin is still trading at about $500! What a robust, resilient currency! What a success story! Wow! Wow!” Sanity in news coverage? Well, not so much….
