ARTICLE: Welcome to Bitcoin Island:
Bitcoin is not a protocol of transfer, but a protocol of ownership. Coins never travel, but simply switch owners. You could
argue this is a trivial observation – "how else could it work?!" – but thinking in terms of ownership
and protocols for transfer of ownership is a surprisingly helpful way to think about how the system works. That’s because
the 'protocol of ownership' insight means there is a whole other world of history, tradition and precedent to learn from:
In the end-state the quantity of bitcoin will be fixed, just like land
· Bitcoin is not perfectly fungible and neither is land
· Bitcoin is not 'consumed'
through use – just transformed and transferred. This is similar to land and dissimilar to many commodities, which are
consumed (or at least degraded) through use
IDMaps /Sonar Hops slide. Combine the use of these tools with the Heart Beacon Cycle's time / space metric, meter meme
to provide a consistent method and means to describe changes in area over time to describe Bitcoin allocation? Welcome
to Bitcoin Island.! Bitcoin Valuated using land meme. IDMaps and SonarHops triangulation will be useful
in surveying the Bitcoin landscape in land as a metaphor for value paradigm. In the end-state the quantity of bitcoin will
be fixed, just like land. Bitcoin is not perfectly fungible, neither is land. Bitcoins are not ‘consumed’ through
use – just transformed. transferred. This is similar to land and dissimilar to many commodities, that are consumed,
degraded) through use. "Bitcoin is not a protocol of transfer, but a protocol of ownership. Coins never
travel, but simply switch owners”. IDMaps / SonarHops help construct the (Dymaxian maps) of land that visually show
how much of the Bitcoin has been mined / issued.
Step 1: prove coin ownership <Org_ID> Coin Issuer
Step 2: # coins sent where, when Lat / Long, Time Stamp
Step 3: specify ownership <Org_ID> receiving entity ; organization Bitcoin type <URN>
Step 4: Issuing Organization of Record adjudicates issues with buyer
UXTO: Unspent Transaction Output‘. The UXTO represents Bitcoins
that have been sent somewhere but not yet themselves been spent. The set of all unspent transaction outputs (UTXOs)
can be thought of as the latest STATE of every bitcoin that has ever been mined. Sampling and comparing un-mined with mined
blocks from cycle to cycle and broadcasting these sync delta threshold changes through aggregation gateways is key.
BITCOIN NOT A CURRENCY, SAYS AUSTRALIAN TAX OFFICE Australia’s Tax
Office has spoken, and it has declared that it will not treat Bitcoin as money or as foreign currency. It has instead
opted to treat Bitcoin transactions as barter transactions, in a move that would have far reaching implications on Bitcoin use down under.
