If you’ve been following my journey over the years, you’ll know that I’ve been an avid Bitcoin supporter. From first learning about it in 2013, to increasing my support from 2015, following the split through to Bitcoin Cash (BCH) in 2017, and finally to Bitcoin (BSV) in 2018.

Throughout the decade, I followed (what I felt) was the real vision for Bitcoin — truth, transparency, and accountability on a global scale.

As such, I thought I’d take a moment to share my thoughts on some recent developments in the Bitcoin space, as it’s been a while since I have.

Bitcoin attracts different ideologies

Singapore, 3 Nov — Hona Pte Ltd (“Honā”) is excited to announce that it has successfully secured its first investment from Draper University Ventures, after winning first place in Draper University’s Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship pitching event in August. The funds will be used to support the app development of Honā: an accountability platform for remote workers leveraging behavioral economics and blockchain technology.

The new investment will enable Honā to accelerate its mission to improve accountability in the world, one commitment at a time, starting first with remote workers seeking improved productivity and motivation.

George Siosi Samuels, founder of Honā, shares:

Was doing some research on Zoroastrianism and Taoism recently, then had an “epiphany” around what they teach us about the trouble with equality struggles in today’s day and age.

Essentially, Zoroastrianism looks at duality as a constant battle between good and evil. While Taoism looks at dualism as something to be accepted, acknowledged, and harmonized.

“A balance of forces does not necessarily mean equal quantities.”

This can seem somewhat paradoxical, but not if you study or meditate on the simple symbol of the yin-yang.

Tuvalu, a small island atoll in the South Pacific, is at risk of sinking if sea levels continue to rise. With foreign aid and climate talks taking up most of its attention between 2010–2020, a unique opportunity relating to its .tv ownership may pave a path for its own salvation.

Recently, I came across an article about Tuvalu “cashing in” on .tv thanks to popular streaming platform, Twitch. As someone with Tuvaluan ancestry, it got me thinking. …

As trust and transparency become greater hallmarks of our increasingly globalized society — have a read of this article on Blockchain, Bitcoin & The Age of Aquarius — we will start to see more shifts in what constitutes “success” for business. Bitcoin, as we’ve said multiple times before, has a vision that truly transcends much of what exists in the marketplace. It seeks to be honest money (via an immutable public ledger that solves the infamous double-spend problem) to pave the way for more honest business, governance, and usage. …

What does it mean to be an “entrepreneur without borders?” Inspired by the world-renown non-profit, Doctors Without Borders, Tribe Theory decided to put on a 1-month video competition encouraging entrepreneurs to record a video answering the same question. As a reward, the winning entry would receive 3 nights free accommodation at any Tribe Theory site of their choosing.

Entrepreneurs without borders are essentially global business travelers who don’t experience borders so much geographically. Crossing mental borders seem to be a lot more “top of mind” for them versus physical.
