It’s getting hard to miss a day without hearing about it as Bitcoin is certainly becoming more common in our everyday lives from the multitude of headlines across the entire world spanning a whole range of related topics. And as long as crypto currencies remain at the forefront of innovation, interesting events and developments are sure to grab our attention.
Today, a five year old could easily know more about trading on exchanges and mining than his or her parents. Although there is something else that kids are certainly better at: computer games. Bitcoin has been used in the MMORPG world for a while for buying game currency and artifacts, but youngsters from Kuroato Media have decided to go even further by submitting CoinRPG for legal recognition. This multiplayer role playing game gives users many options such as collecting in-game Bitcoins. Of course, just like in other video games, the money is not real, however, the general idea is still inspiring.
Nevertheless, the prizes awarded to the best gamers will certainly be real. And anyone who is tired of traditional methods of acquiring crypto currencies can now “mine” by swinging an axe or reciting a spell.
The educational role for women in the world of cryptocurrencies will be taken up by the Cryptomoms project. The site lets users better understand the world of cryptocurrencies via an easy and user-friendly layout. The resource does not only contain educational material and articles but also a forum and blog sections. But one of the most promising aspects of this project is that tech-savvy crypto moms will undoubtedly pass their knowledge onto the younger generations.
Meanwhile, other moms will be able to stop worrying and better understand why their children are so interested in the new technology.
In Cleveland, Ohio, the first ever Bitcoin Boulevard is scheduled to open on May 1. Already seven businesses have announced that they will set up seven brick-and-mortar points of sale and service, where Bitcoins will be accepted as payment.
