Career in Coding Guidance, Mostly Interested in Bitcoin

July 25th, 2016|Bitcoin, Misc|

I've always known that I need to get started coding, need to get started coding. But whenever I'd open a book I'd fall asleep before getting through a few pages. I just can't wrap my head around enjoying C++ at this very moment. But I finally had a spark and it was with bitcoin. Learning about all the keys and signatures - the possibilities of multi-sig wallets. Just this past day I realized that I know I'm capable of learning coding if my heart is into a project or possibly a lucrative career path. So my question is what type of path should i go down if I want to implement bitcoin into my coding education? I'd like to take a crash course about 9 weeks to 6 months something like that. I can teach myself online or I can try and go in on a bootcamp in person. Are there ways to work with bitcoin and also be gaining skills to be a sought after coder? Is this a path worth going down or should I try and think about being more of a creative coder than a drone that can learn the languages within 12 weeks and get a job working long hours? submitted by /u/worldlytraveler4 [link] [comments]

Should I report bitcoin on my taxes? [Canada]

July 25th, 2016|Bitcoin, Misc|

I've been slowly collecting Bitcoin and I've never sold. Should I be reporting on my tax returns? Or just not worry about it until I sell or buy something with it? I don't really have a lot or anything but more so just curious for in the unlikely event of a moon. And this is a question for Canada specifically. submitted by /u/Psybawr [link] [comments]

I understand bitcoin addresses are randomly selected from such a large pool that the statistical chances of someone discovering your address is very low. In light of the above is it still not possible? i.e. if I have a larg...

Transforming private key into address

July 25th, 2016|address, development, Misc, private-key, public-key|

How do I get to the value in the 'scriptPubKey' part of the transaction ? shows a great example of going from address to scriptPubKey. I'd like to do something similar: go from private key (ECDSA) to address. How do I do that? References to libs or code, as in the above question, would be appreciated.

Bitcoin is not doing well. – oh yeah !?!?!

July 25th, 2016|Bitcoin, Misc|

Just read this from David Seaman in his recent posting: "Ethereum Classic,” Another Bitcoin Scam" Bitcoin is not doing well. After its recent reward halving, miners get only 50% of what they were previously rewarded per block, yet the price per bitcoin has not skyrocketed in response - so now miners are subsidizing losses, in many cases. Those economics cannot last forever. As more miners drop off the network, network security decreases, making Bitcoin fundamentally less secure as a record of all prior transactions on the network." I guess I now have to add David to my list of idiots. Did someone on the bitcoin side upset this baby as he sounds like an immature kid who didn't get his way when it came to buying bitcoin. submitted by /u/BillyHodson [link] [comments]
