Bitcoin developer and educator Jimmy Song recently shared his work as an educator. He also shared that why he is educating people more than contributing directly. In a recent interview with Crypto Insider, Song stated that he has been organizing two-day seminars in various parts of the world – North America, Europe, South America, and Asia. According to him, there was a lot to learn about Bitcoin and the seminars solve that. Elizabeth Stark was reportedly helping Song to get scholarship funds to teach developers who are not being able to afford his course. He said, “I’ve been doing this for over a year now, I’ve taught over 400 people and they get to learn a lot about the needy-greedy of Bitcoin and what it’s all about.” Moreover, he stated that he enjoyed teaching because he realized that he could have become the developer for the Core open-source projects but he felt that teaching was a better option. He further went on to say that one of the biggest shortcomings in the crypto space that people understanding the “material” and willing to teach it. Jimmy decided to address the problem by teaching it to those interested in the crypto space. He added, “I’ve been doing some form of teaching, not too often, but enough that I could potentially do something like that. And I quit my corporate job in the middle of last year and I started to do this.” According to the report, Jimmy almost organized 23 editions of his seminar over past year and trained over 400 people. According to him, the idea was that even if one out of either of those guys commits themselves for a year, “then I still come out ahead”. He added, “I want to train the next generation of developers. I really mean “next generation”, I’ve taught people as young as 14 and all the way up to people in their 70s… it’s a lot of different people and getting to teach, that’s my mission: to make Bitcoin stronger by creating more developers.” See Also:U.S. SEC strikes again, clamps down on fraudulent ICOFrench investigators question alleged Bitcoin fraud Alexander Vinnik Image via Shutterstock Join our Telegram group

It is safe to say that the crypto winter that the industry has been going through has been painful and taxing to anyone involved. The value of Bitcoin has remained at lower levels since the end of 2017, and the rest of the altcoins have followed along. Pantera Capital, which is an investment group that centers around cryptocurrency in the Bay Area, says that the fundamentals are still strong, even if the prices are low. The startup released its February letter to discuss what they believe the future of the industry holds. Chief executive Dan Morehead said that, in many ways, the industry’s “underlying fundamentals are much, much stronger than they were in the 2014-2015 crypto winter.” He said the comment was basically due to the “impending institutional wave of money” that most experts believe is coming. The launches of the new products and exchanges like Bakkt, the crypto division of Fidelity, and ErisX should be considered progress and a catalyst for change, even if the prices do not
CasperLabs is a new startup in the blockchain industry, aiming to help create a new proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchain. The protocol is heavily associated with Ethereum, and the startup will be getting support from Vlad Zamfir in their new creation. Zamfir is a researcher from the Ethereum Foundation, and his role with CasperLabs will be that of the lead consensus protocol architect. His announcement confirms earlier reports that he is tied in with this blockchain startup. Right now, the plan for CasperLabs is to support the majority of the research that Zamfir performs on PoS so that they can release a “fully decentralized, sharded and scalable next-generation blockchain.” Zamfir added, in a discussion with CoinDesk, that he will be responsible for “producing protocol specifications” that “support the [CasperLabs] team” to help them understand the technology employed. Zamfir will not be taking on the coding of the blockchain however, as his role is purely for research purposes. So far,

As many of our regular readers may remember, Bitcoin.com CEO Roger Ver recently took to Twitter to call for the creation of a single native cryptocurrency for the Internet. The reason for this, as per Ver, is to help create a monetary token that will unify the World Wide Web and make online financial processes easier for people living across the globe.
