Calvin Ayre: Bitcoin Cash is more than just a company

Calvin Ayre: Bitcoin Cash is a movement

To say that the global cryptocurrency community has been buzzing lately would be an understatement.

For the month of March alone, more than 60 Bitcoin and blockchain-related events have been held in virtually all parts of the globe, including TOKEN2049 Conference in Hong Kong and the highly acclaimed Satoshi’s Vision Conference in Tokyo, Japan.

Though they were held in the same week, the two events had very different focus. Antiguan entrepreneur Calvin Ayre, who attended both conferences, described ICO-focused Token2049 as “a multi-level marketing conference,” whereas Satoshi’s Vision “focused on making fundamental changes to the society.”

“[Satoshi’s Vision Conference] is very much about how Bitcoin specifically, but cryptocurrencies in general, could change the world… The people here are really focused on making fundamental changes to the society, whereas the conference that we just had [attended] in Hong Kong, it felt like a multi-level marketing conference. There’s a bunch of people that were there mainly… working on some get-rich-quick schemes or what not,” Ayre said. “This conference here [in Tokyo] is the real deal, and I think in the years ahead, we’ll see a lot more conferences like this one.”

Ayre is a huge supporter of Bitcoin Cash. As part of his deeper involvement in all things Bitcoin, Ayre has been putting his time, effort and financial resources into projects—including Lokad’s Terab Project, Electron Cash, Cash Shuffle Group’s BCH ‘Mixer’ tool, and a Bitcoin Cash tokenization contest—that expand Bitcoin’s reach and acceptance, which begs the question: why?

“Somebody’s got to do it,” Ayre said. “I think Roger Ver kind of summed it up. This project is more than just a company, it’s a movement. I’m a big believer in it myself, and I got the financial resources so I want to seed a few things that I think are good for the greater community.”

Conduit for merchant community

CoinGeek, a part of the Ayre Media Group, is organizing its very own conference in May—an event that will bring together the brightest and most dedicated minds behind cryptocurrency. Unlike the Satoshi’s Vision Conference, which focused on the evolution of the platform, Ayre said the upcoming CoinGeek.com Conference will center on merchant adoption.

“I’m also working on positioning [CoinGeek] conference because of the fact that we’re dovetailing it to come just a few days after the next fork in BCH, which is May 15… the next fork in BCH is going to be November 15, and so we’re hoping that we can have our next conference on the 29th of November,” Ayre said. “We hope by having our conferences around the same time as these forks, that we can become a conduit for the merchant community back into the platform developers, so that there can be better communication between the two.”

The inaugural CoinGeek.com Conference, which will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong on May 18, is shaping up to be a landmark event tackling merchant adoption and providing education on the benefits of Bitcoin Cash.

“I think Bitcoin Cash, which is the one true Bitcoin, is going to become the dominant global public blockchain, the one chain that can do it all and everything will be on it,” Ayre said.

Registration for the CoinGeek.com Conference is now open with a 50% discount for those paying in BCH, but credit card payments are also welcome.

Top names in crypto space toast to Bitcoin BCH in nChain exclusive party

Blockchain technology research and development specialist nChain Group gathered the brilliant minds of cryptocurrency as well as supporters of Bitcoin Cash in Tokyo, Japan, recently for an exclusive dinner party.

The group who were in town for the Satoshi’s Vision Conference, which was organized by Bitcoin Unlimited, were composed of the top names and thought leaders within the cryptocurrency space. nChain Group’s very own Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Steven Wright was in attendance together with Bitcoin.com CEO  Roger Ver and CoinGeek owner Calvin Ayre.

The night was also a celebration of the synergy and collaboration among Bitcoin groups who continue to work for the growth and development of Bitcoin Cash, the only Bitcoin that remains true to the Satoshi Nakamoto white paper.

nChain Group CEO Jimmy Nguyen thanked  the guests for supporting Satoshi Nakamoto’s vision for Bitcoin and proposed a toast to the thriving Bitcoin Cash.

Incidentally, Nguyen will also serve as the host of the upcoming CoinGeek Conference on May 18. The one-day event will take place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong, featuring presentations and panel discussions by focusing on merchant adoption as well as the integration of Bitcoin Cash and blockchain technology into various areas of businesses.

The upcoming conference, which is also hosting an after-party courtesy of CoinGeek.com owner Calvin Ayre, is shaping up to be a landmark in merchant adoption and education in the benefits of Bitcoin BCH, which features bigger blocks, faster speed, and lower transaction fees.

Dr. Craig Wright: With Bitcoin

Dr. Craig Wright: With Bitcoin, the power is within

Sorry Raspberry Pi users, your tiny computers aren’t enough to handle a full Bitcoin node.

At the recently held Satoshi’s Vision conference in Tokyo, Japan, Dr. Craig Wright explained how network topology works, and, in the process, debunked the notion that an outfitted Raspberry Pi can be used as a full Bitcoin node.

The nChain chief scientist prefaced his presentation, “Bitcoin network topology: Small world vs mesh,” by saying that the key to understanding connectivity and Bitcoin is to bear in mind that Bitcoin is incentivized. Bitcoin, he said, is “actually very close to a biological system,” where nodes aren’t the important part—the connections are.

“With Bitcoin, the power is within. The code is rich enough. The network is strong enough. We don’t need to do half the things people tell us we need to do. We don’t need to rebuild it, we don’t need to change it, we don’t need to bastardize it. Bitcoin is powerful right now,” Wright said.

So where do the Raspberry Pis fit in? Nowhere. Miners, after all, are incentivized to process a transaction on the network, and a Raspberry Pi does not have enough processing power, memory and network bandwidth to maintain it all, according to Wright.

“If you have to open up many, many connections, your machine grinds to a halt and it becomes slower. So all those Raspberry Pis out there end up slower, they take 30 seconds, 40 seconds to transmit a transaction. And as you send that transaction, it hits all the miners, and all the miners have that transaction in 1-3 seconds, and it can get faster than that as well. By the time any Raspberry Pi decides that’s a valid transaction, the miners have either accepted or rejected it,” Wright said, “because miners are incentivized to connect to miners. Every second matters to a miner. Every second, if you can mine one second faster, verify one second faster, get a block out one second faster, you make money. Making money makes people want to do this. We use greed for good. This is what Bitcoin does. Bitcoin is not a system of cryptographic protocols, it uses them. It is an incentive system. You can’t cheat the system because if you do, you lose money. That’s what it’s about.”

Roger Ver at Satoshi Vision

Bitcoin Cash will usher global economic freedom, Roger Ver says

Economic freedom is defined as the ability of people in a society or a country to take economic actions. It’s the measure of how easy it is for members of a society to participate in the economy, where freedom exists for everybody from free markets to free trade and free enterprise.

Digital currencies like Bitcoin have been touted as the best tools the world has ever seen that will bring economic freedom to the world—until the governments stepped in.

In his presentation at the recently held Satoshi’s Vision conference in Tokyo, Japan, Bitcoin.com owner Roger Ver explained how he thinks the world governments have been encroaching upon the economic freedom of the people. It’s simple, Ver said. They did it by advocating for 1MB blocks to intentionally create high fees, less privacy, slow confirmations, and unreliable transactions, and that would end up resulting in fewer users, fewer nodes, lower adoption, less privacy, a lower Bitcoin market cap, a lower Bitcoin market share, and less censorship resistance.

“I’m not saying that Blockstream and Core are intentionally in the government attack on the adoption of cryptocurrencies around the world, but if you stop and think about it, I can’t really think of a more effective way to do it—they literally shattered what used to be this unified Bitcoin ecosystem, they’ve now shattered it into a thousand and one altcoins around the world with in-fighting within the communities and people competing on this and that, and all sorts of hostilities, and get it through primarily censorship and propaganda and lies,” Ver said. “If you’re in favor of a censorship resistant currency for the entire world to use to gain more economic freedom, you shouldn’t be using censorship to promote it, and that’s exactly what the Bitcoin Core supporters have been doing which should be condemned by anybody who supports free speech.”

This is reason why the market has moved to alt coins, particularly Bitcoin Cash, which continues to stay true to the spirit of Bitcoin. But Ver said there’s “a thousand and one” competitors out there, so the community needs to step up and make Bitcoin Cash the most useful digital currency in the world, with fast, cheap, reliable transactions for everybody, permissionless innovations, censorship resistance, private transactions.

“This is why I’m here, supporting Bitcoin Cash before you because I want to use it to bring more economic freedom to the world, and whatever tool does it, I’m on board with that,” Ver said. “I think Bitcoin Cash has the biggest chance of doing that because it has the Bitcoin name, it has almost all the early adopters of Bitcoin, all the people that made Bitcoin useful as currency around the world are supporting it.”

CoinGeek takes Tokyo by storm to celebrate Satoshi’s Vision

CoinGeek takes Tokyo by storm to celebrate Satoshi’s Vision

CoinGeek.com, the cryptocurrency news site founded by Antiguan entrepreneur Calvin Ayre, recently flew to Japan for the Satoshi’s Vision conference and threw a party for its attendees.

With a fabulous view of the city lights at the heart of Shibuya in Tokyo, conference delegates were treated to a fun networking night, great music and overflowing drinks. Guests from over a dozen countries include big names in the cryptocurrency space, such as nChain CEO Jimmy Nguyen and Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright, Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver, Bitcoin Unlimited President Andrew Clifford, and Bitcoin ABC lead developer Amaury Séchet.

The networking night paved the way for the delegates to discuss the latest trends as well as developments the Bitcoin community has been working on. It also became an avenue for more entrepreneurs and investors to meet and explore the possibility of changing the world through the integration of Bitcoin Cash into their businesses.

“Finally, we have a Bitcoin party that brings Bitcoin back to what it really was meant to be—currency that you can use, something that you can spend, and the best place to store value,” said Antiguan entrepreneur Calvin Ayre, owner of CoinGeek.com.

The night was just a teaser of what’s going to happen at the CoinGeek Conference in May this year. The one-day event will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong, featuring presentations and panel discussions focusing on merchant adoption as well as the integration of Bitcoin Cash and blockchain technology into various areas of businesses.

The upcoming conference, which is also hosting an after-party courtesy of CoinGeek.com owner Calvin Ayre, is shaping up to be a landmark in merchant adoption and education in the benefits of Bitcoin BCH.  With its bigger blocks, faster speed, and lower transaction fees, Bitcoin BCH represents the truer vision of Bitcoin as a peer-to-peer electronic cash system.
