Decentralized platforms like Bitcoin changed cryptocurrency forever, but Ethereum is going to change so much more. Before you can successfully mine and invest in Ethereum, you need to understand where it came from, how it works, and how it's different than Bitcoin. The founder of Ethereum wanted to create a blockchain that could incorporate applications and not just currency. He made Ethereum, which has a more complex code and system of "tokens".

Cryptocurrency has been all the rage lately, and in the race to create to create the best crypto-coin, Ethereum seems poised to take the lead. Ethereum reached the $400 mark in 2017 and has since continued to quickly rise even further in its value, seeming to indicate that Ethereum will soon overtake its much talked about predecessor, Bitcoin. But it isn’t just the monetary value of Ethereum that is making waves. It is also the technology behind Ethereum.

Blockchains are new technology layers that rewire the Internet and threaten to side-step older legacy constructs and centrally served businesses. At its core, a blockchain injects trust into the network, cutting off some intermediaries from serving that function and creatively disrupting how they operate. Metaphorically, blockchains are the ultimate non-stop computers. Once launched, they never go down, and offer an incredible amount of resiliency, making them dependable and attractive for running a new generation of decentralized services and software.

Until recent years, “bad” and “immoral” were the terms used to describe people who are now referred to as “sick” and “in need of treatment.” Moral and religious perspective has been replaced by medical and therapeutic rhetoric. It is little wonder why the world is plagued by legions of rapists, drug users, murderers, thieves, and child abusers, all of whom are now referred to as having one form or another of “addiction” and are thus either “sick” or suffering from “mental illness.”

"Treasure Island" is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". Its influence is enormous on popular perceptions of pirates, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders. "Treasure Island" is traditionally considered a coming-of-age story and is noted for its atmosphere, characters, and action. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels.

many words were incorrectly used. most piano advice was basic and rudimentary but even that was poorly explained. second half of book dedicated to "becoming a producer". that's an impossible leap from basics to making a profession out of music.

The Mises Institute is pleased to introduce Walter Block's remarkable new treatise on private roads that'll cause you to rethink the whole of the way modern transportation networks operate. It's bold, innovative, radical, and compelling and shows how free-market economic theory is the clarifying lens through which to see the failures of the state and see the alternative that's consistent with human liberty.
