    When it comes to improving user experience, here’s my contribution. This is
    btw the extent of my abilities so I am literally giving this 100%. Unit
    nomenclature is an issue in bitcoin. 1 BTC is about $350 USD and hopefully
    going up that’s not a very workable unit for say buying a coffee. The
    smallest unit is a Satoshi that is a designation that enjoys universal
    acceptance, but its so small its also not workable.
    A one millionth of a bitcoin seems to be the target for a standard
    universal unit but it doesn’t have an agreed upon name. Bit? Too much like
    bitcoin. Nanobit? Not technically accurate since “nano” denotes 10^-9 in SI
    units. So how about we just call it “credits”? So a coffee would be “4
    credits”. Simple, easy to remember, everyone knows what you mean and the
    word has a positive connotation to it. So that’s my suggestion improve user
    experience by denominating all bitcoin transactions in one millionths of a
    bitcoin (which also makes prices divisible to 2 decimal places just like
    dollars) and just call it credits.
    If you like it try to promote it maybe it’ll go viral and become accepted
    as the universal unit.

    Why did CoinJar edit out Andreas’s answer to how to deal with
    centralization of mining with Bitcoin? 🙁

    Check out Myriad(coin) it tackles this problem head on.

    If the original recording did not have these popping sounds, then your
    sound problem is probably due to the mismatch between the rendering quality
    and the recording quality. When you lower the audio quality during
    rendering, make sure to drop by say half or perhaps by 4. As an example,
    from 176.4k down to 44.1k and not 48k. From 192k down to 48k and not 44.1k.

    I wonder when God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses if he turned around
    and said that these tablets are a bit dirty. Your anal criticism of the
    video will be enshrined forever.

    Thank you Andreas. Most people don’t want to go trough so much trouble for
    cold storage, hopefully the open source community solve this very soon.
    Because Bitcoin is the only trustworthy way.
