How did the idea of creating a cryptocurrency come about?

The fact is that cryptocurrencies are not the first form of digital money. Attempts to create digital currencies began back in the early 1990s, but all of these inventions failed to compete with electronic bank money or third-party systems like PayPal.

David Schaum paved the way for digital currency when he launched DigiCash in 1989. It was an electronic network used to send currency anonymously. Ten years after DigiCash went bankrupt, we saw the likes of E-gold and Liberty Reserve, which also went bankrupt after criminal charges. Soon the idea itself began to seem far-fetched and unrealizable to people.

Why did it all fail?

One can simply remember the adage that the first pancake is a pancake. But a more plausible explanation is that there was no demand for digital currency, because e-commerce had not yet arrived on the scene, nor had widespread access to the Internet.

Now back to 2008. Then a mysterious figure known as Satoshi Nakamoto gave a new explanation for the previous failures: all these systems were centralized and therefore based on trust. And according to the enigmatic Nakamoto, this was the most serious problem.

You can read a detailed explanation in a document written by Satoshi in 2008: "Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System" (Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System). In it, Nakamoto highlighted two fundamental problems: the workings of conventional financial systems and the properties of fiat currency (such as the U.S. dollar).

We want to be useful

As you can see, there is a lot of information about the world of cryptocurrencies, and it is very difficult for beginners to understand it. Artex Global gives an opportunity to get such information in simple language that is easy to understand. We hope that we will become even more popular because of Podomatic, and our information will be useful for many more people.

take it with you

Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:

Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:


This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:

Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.


Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.
