Decentralization Is Near: Interview With Vikram Kumar Of

Bitcoin Portal

Posted by Fran Strajnar on 25 October 2014 via

A play on words to Ray Kurzweil’s 2005 Book “The Singularity Is Near” which anticipated that technology will one day tessellate the world by coming to some kind of singularity point where the next ‘big thing’ is so far advanced that everything in humanity’s history instantly becomes obsolete by comparison.

A scenario that is backed by technology’s compounding complexity and speed where every epoch of measured time contains twice the complexity/novelty and is twice as short as the previous epoch. There has been a raft of differing opinion if such a linchpin event and dramatic climax will occur in the future; however an interesting, not spanner but pivot, in the wheel this theory is the rise of decentralization.

Idea Updates

This is the blog for Bitgold, which is a small C# library that helps game developers add Bitcoin payments (e.g. microtransactions) to their video games.

Bitcoin is a digital currency which has increased in popularity during the last few years. It is an attractive replacement for current medium for in-game transactions, including credit cards, store credit and Paypal, because it likely has cheaper transaction fees, can handle quick national or international money transfers, is independent to any country’s currency, and can be converted to real money at any time. However, despite these strengths no library like Bitgold exists.

Bitgold is in development by Jared Schroeder, to fulfil requirements for the Bachelor of Games & Virtual Worlds. The project will take place between October-November 2014. Bitgold will have the following functionality:

  • performing (not verifying) player-to-developer Bitcoin transactions within and without a game
  • converting in-game transactions from national currency to Bitcoin value (e.g. converting $AUD to Bitcoin)

Game Theory 3 – Applied Uses

Verba Volant, Scripta Manent

Part 3. Applied Uses – Various Applications of the Game Theory

When I introduced the history of the Game Theory at the previous post, you might realize that there are many applications of the game theory. Since 1950s, the game theory used various kinds of academic studies. In 1970s, the game theory finally applied in biology, so the game theory could be one of the most important foundational knowledge in university educations.


As I mentioned above of this post, the game theory was applied to biology in 1970s. The game theory used in biology to understand different kinds of models and phenomena. The first application of the game theory in biology was to explain 1:1 sex ratios. Through this application, the result of 1:1 sex ratios showed maximizing the number of grandchildren. Biologists have been used the game theory to explain their models, phenomena, and theories rather than to…
