Blockchain & Cryptocurrency in Boston Tech: The Complete Series

Think back to 2010/2011 and there is this new currency on the Internet, "magic Internet money" if you will, that seems to be all the rage with the stereotypical Deep Web user, and they are using this type of coinage to purchase illegal goods on something called the Silk Road through the Deep Web.

This is what the world of Bitcoin looked like for a period of time. No one truly understood it, except for those same sketchy people mentioned above.

Fast forward to today, and it looks completely different...especially in the Boston tech scene.

In January, we published a four-part series detailing the ins-and-outs of the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. In honor of Boston Blockchain Week, we have compiled all four parts into one feature:

I’d like to give special thanks to the following people involved with this space who also helped give me the insight needed in order to write the series: Parul Singh of Founder CollectiveNeha Narula of the MIT Digital Currency InitiativeRichard Dulude of Underscore VCDave Balter of Flipside CryptoRob Frasca of Cosimo VenturesJamie Goldstein of PillarJeremy Kauffman of LBRYTy DancoChet Manikantan of TenguAuryn Macmillan and David DiNeno of FirstBloodHavell Rodrigues of AdjointBennett Collen of CognateRemy Carpinito of EsprezzoBoris Revsin of Game Theory Crypto Group, and Christine To of AirFox.

Also, if you're a punk/alternative rock fan, you'll notice each title of the series is a Husker Du song.
