Satoshi Nakamoto is the name used by the person or people who designed Bitcoin and created its original reference implementation. As part of the implementation, they also devised the first blockchain database. In the process they were the first to solve the double-spending problem for digital currency. They were active in the development of Bitcoin up until December 2010. On a P2P Foundation profile, Nakamoto claimed to be a man living in Japan, born on 5 April 1975. Speculation about the true identity of Nakamoto has mostly focused on a number of cryptography and computer science experts of non-Japanese descent, living in the United States and various European countries. Satoshi Nakamoto also created the bitcointalk forum, posted the first message in 2009 under the pseudonym satoshi. In October 2008, Nakamoto published a paper on the cryptography mailing list at metzdowd.com describing the Bitcoin digital currency. It was titled ´´Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System´´. In January 2009, Nakamoto released the first Bitcoin software that launched the network and the first units of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, called Bitcoins. Satoshi Nakamoto released the Version 0.1 of Bitcoin software on Sourceforge on 9 January 2009. Nakamoto claimed that work on the writing of the code began in 2007. The inventor of Bitcoin knew that due to its nature, the core design would have to be able to support a broad range of transaction types. The implemented solution enabled specialized codes and data fields from the start through the use of a predicative script. Nakamoto created a website with the domain name bitcoin.org and continued to collaborate with other developers on the Bitcoin software until mid-2010. Around this time, he handed over control of the source code repository and network alert key to Gavin Andresen, transferred several related domains to various prominent members of the Bitcoin community, and stopped his invo 1.

Blockchain is one of those technologies that only come out once in a blue moon. In other words, it is an extremely rare form of innovation, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a while and are not likely to see for some time again. It has been likened to be a second Internet. Not too bad for an application that initially came as a mere side affect of a then unknown digital currency known as Bitcoin. These are all pretty heavy and heady. Yes, I said both those words in one sentence, topics that Matthew Scott tackles for us in this audiobook, and he manages to encapsulate the basics of them all extraordinarily well. Where other books merely highlight the most simplistic use cases of blockchain, this audiobook actually lifts up the hood and gives you a direct view of the engine that allows blockchain technology to run. If you would like to really learn the ins and outs of blockchain technology, then Matthew Scott’s comprehensive guide is for you! Learn how the public ledger of the blockchain is being used in banking, medical records, smart contracts, and even as a future broker and intermediary of the oft talked about Internet of Things. These mathematically sealed blocks of data, whose first framework was dropped off by the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto back in 2008, are on the verge of changing the world. Get this audiobook to find out how you can be at the forefront of this revolution. In this audiobook, you will learn how you can: Use the blockchain for personal data Entrust cryptography for security Eliminate double spending Utilize Ethereum And much more 1. Language: English.

The only guide you need to understand the mechanics behind blockchain technology. This book will help you better understand blockchain, a new computer technology that is changing everything from how financial transactions are made to financial systems themselves. Unlike many other new technologies that emerge on the market, blockchain does not build on pre-existing technology. It actually created an entirely new model for how computer programs can run: in a decentralized, peer-to-peer, open-source manner that is not only virtually impenetrable, but also does not require trusted mediaries to authorize transactions. Blockchain´s origins go back to the early 1990s, the time when the Internet was beginning to become more accessible to the public. The full concept was laid out in 2008 with Satoshi Nakamoto´s white paper on his proposed cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. He developed the blockchain concept into a fully operational program that provides the best security features in all of cyber security. Some programmers saw that blockchain could be used for programs other than Bitcoin. They went on to develop powerful networks such as Ethereum and Blockstack, while other programmers began to experiment with other practical applications that blockchain had. The potential of blockchain is enormous. It enables highly secure transactions that cannot be tampered with. One feature of blockchain, the smart contract, even ensures that all parties involved in a contract carry out their prescribed duties - without the need for any trusted third party or middleman! Thus, there is no need for haggling, disputing claims, or going back and forth on each party´s responsibility.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dominic Carlos.

The world has always run on traditional fiat currencies, which have been backed and controlled by governments. The government can inflate or deflate the price of these currencies without any democratic involvement. This also meant a high degree of regulation and government scrutiny that led to manipulation, but then came Bitcoin.Bitcoin is a decentralized virtual currency that is not controlled by anyone and that does not require a third-party intervention. It was created by a figure known as Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. His identity is still unknown, and he vanished from the Online world a few years after introducing the world to the revolutionary technology of Bitcoin. Bitcoins value has increased over the years because of its popularity, and many people have made a lot of money from it.No central figure controls Bitcoin, but it´s regulated by a peer-to-peer network that provides it with a functional base without the need of an external figure.

A book that challenges common misconceptions about the nature of intelligence. Satoshi Kanazawa´s Why Beautiful People Have More Daughters (written with Alan S. Miller) was hailed by the Los Angeles Times as ´´a rollicking bit of pop Science & Technology that turns the lens of evolutionary psychology on issues of the day.´´ That book answered such burning questions as why women tend to lust after males who already have mates and why newborns look more like Dad than Mom. Now Kanazawa tackles the nature of intelligence: what it is, what it does, what it is good for (if anything). Highly entertaining, smart (dare we say intelligent?), and daringly contrarian, The Intelligence Paradox will provide a deeper understanding of what intelligence is, and what it means for us in our lives. Asks why more intelligent individuals are not better (and are, in fact, often worse) than less intelligent individuals in solving some of the most important problems in life - such as finding a mate, raising children, and making friends Discusses why liberals are more intelligent than conservatives, why atheists are more intelligent than the religious, why more intelligent men value monogamy, why night owls are more intelligent than morning larks, and why homosexuals are more intelligent than heterosexuals Explores how the purpose for which general intelligence evolved - solving evolutionarily novel problems - allows us to explain why intelligent people have the particular values and preferences they have Challenging common misconceptions about the nature of intelligence, this book offers surprising insights into the cutting-edge of Science & Technology at the intersection of evolutionary psychology and intelligence research.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Bitcoin may seem complicated at first, but is actually very simple to use. As long as the user is careful in securing their digital wallet and uses the system correctly, Bitcoin can be a very simple way to send and receive funds. While the first idea of cryptocurrency such as this was described by Wei Dai in 1998, the first real prototype, Bitcoin, was created by Satoshi Nakamoto, a name used by someone whose real identity is still unknown since first publishing the paper, ´´Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System´´, on October 31, 2008 to a cryptography mailing list. Bitcoin was first actually implemented in January of 2009. It was released as an open-source code, and anyone could create their own version of cryptocurrency using this information. Satoshi Nakamoto stepped down in 2010, and Gavin Andresen took over the reigns. Andresen then worked to ensure that Bitcoin was completely decentralized, meaning that no single entity has control over the system. Andresen said, ´´As soon as Satoshi stepped back and threw the project onto my shoulders, one of the first things I did was try to decentralize that. So, if I get hit by a bus, it would be clear that the project would go on.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Moore.
