Still doing more thinking about Bitcoin, ever since the SR ran a story on Jan. 11 about the Volstead Act, a Spokane bar, starting to accept that crypto-currency as payment.
Today's story, for additional research, presents a tongue-in-cheek overview of other competing digital currencies. It comes by way of The Daily Beast; all you need to know is a few examples of the types of currencies surveyed: Coinye West, CatCoin and SexCoin.
Another, more serious look at the Bitcoin universe and its ability to be gamed, we suggest a recent cover article from Bloomberg Business.
You were not alone if you read the Saturday SR story about Bitcoin and wasn't sure how it all works and what's the big deal.
For you, here we go. A free workshop on Thursday at the Spokane Valley Library, at 12004 E. Main Ave. Presenters will be Zach Doty and Doug Slaton, two local business guys who both accept the new virtual currency at their stores.
The two will give a helpful layman's introduction to Bitcoin, so that any ordinary person can figure out what it does and doesn't do.
Both guys are well-versed in Bitcoin, which is a form of payment increasingly popular on the Web.
