What's the cliche that you hear most about Bitcoin? “I don’t like Bitcoin, but I like Blockchain.” Usually when you google a quote like this, it doesn’t exist. Not exactly – typically you’ll have some typo in there. But this one does, because people say it all the time. From a Director of the Indian Central Bank, to people you meet in the bar, to Twitter: “We don’t like Bitcoin we love blockchain” is the new “I read Playboy for the articles.” — Downtown Josh Brown (@ReformedBroker) October 13, 2017 Saying "I don't like Bitcoin but i like Blockchain." is like "I don't like electron but i like electricity.". — Decentralized Kebab (@DonerChain) December 18, 2017 People who say this think they mean they don’t like illicit payment mechanisms but that they like decentralization. Personally I suspect it means “I don’t really understand either but I’ve heard somebody say bad things about Bitcoin but the tech is hot right?”   You know when you have the most amazing idea, but then you try to tell your best friend and they look at you blankly? It’s the same as oneitis . When you meet the person you think you are destined to be with but you ruin it because you act like a petulant teenager. The people who both love and understand Bitcoin and blockchain can share a vision, and probably even show you some code, but they can’t explain it in simple terms to the average person down the pub. This is why they get bogged down in Byzantine Fault Tolerance or even worse “No more banks man!” We’re different though, we’re not tech guys. So we get to buy into the hype at the same time as oversimplifying . And what does oversimplification look like? Its unique digital assets . That’s the explain like I’m five background on blockchain. Bitcoin happens to be the first provably scarce digital asset . Alright, alright, just because you put the latest Adele song on the blockchain, that doesn’t make it unique. But if you put the signature of the owner or creator of that song on the blockchain, in that case you’ve got something hard to corrupt. Image: Harder to change than the settings on your thermostat. Source Corgi HomePlan, flickr commons Here at Blocktribe, we like crypto, but we love blockchain . What does that mean? Well first off we own a little Bitcoin, Ethereum et cetera, but small, really small. Small enough that we can still see the wood for the trees. Secondly, it means we get really excited when somebody starts talking about new digital securities, or a new way of doing something in a completely open way. One of the great things about blockchain is that it makes people think of openness as a default setting , rather than something optional. The sad truth is that the majority of time openness occurs is after somebody gets caught . That’s true with Clinton and Lewinsky, and that’s true with Facebook and their adverts manipulating you exactly as they are designed to do. Blockchains are open and decentralized in a way that the organisation and processes of society mostly isn’t. You may be reading along and thinking “ what has this got to do with the price of Bitcoin going down? ” And that is our problem with a rising Bitcoin price. It ends conversations because all the other person cares about is the dollar number at the top of their Blockfolio app. The rising price has lots of benefits. It's pulling forward adoption , lots of people can get into crypto to speculate and then stay to spend and develop. It's creating wealth . Bitcoin is not zero sum, if it goes up and someone sells at a profit that is value from nowhere. We at Blocktribe fully support everyone making money :) The rising price of crypto enabled the funding every half assed blockchain idea going. Which is also good…to an extent. Come on, when Dogecoin hit $2 billion market cap there is something very wrong going on. It gets no github commits and is a meme pretending to be money. Image: It’s definitely a parody The benefits of the drop in the price of Bitcoin and Ethereum is that real ideas, the real breakthroughs , like Bitcoin and Ethereum, will capture more share of attention . Developers will become more selective about the best projects . People, including me, will spend less time looking at Blockfolio, and more time being useful. That can only be good for blockchain.
Back when Kite first started looking at blockchain, we noticed immediately how the space seemed to have its own language, its own customs and importantly its own distinct identity. Myth making and idealistic hopes about decentralization, and a new world order free of censorship, were central to many early adopters. That's pretty much how we came up with Blocktribe. So no surprise crypto and blockchain has been a truly amazing source of memes.

Bcash, is the real bitcoin. What a joke - Aria Nemati (@nemaria9) December 8, 2017 (Source: Twitter)   "Bitcoin Cash" is centralized sock puppetry. https://t.co/OJJo5vwEfn - Nick Szabo⚡️ (@NickSzabo4) December 21, 2017 Source: Twitter   And if you're on Twitter you'll know we are going heavily safe for work with these. Crypto trolling is simply vicious.   You definitely have the IQ of 0 because last time I checked people with six figures we're not arguing on Twitter about a $0.04 crypto. I think when you mean six figures you mean maybe $6k you spent and probably lost. Tronis still developing. You're just a internet troll. - Thomas (@TomaszMaciejka) February 23, 2018 (Source: Twitter)   Now perhaps this is simply Twitter at its best-ish worse. Exploding barrels of testosterone under the cover of anonymity. But we don't think so.   Why not just use zcash? - Vitalik "No I'm not giving away ETH" Buterin (@VitalikButerin) February 27, 2018 (Source: Twitter) I'm sure you'll agree that this is an absolutely classic killer question - why not just use the other thing that does exactly what you've just highlighted? Why put thought leaders in a position that they feel the need to socially de-proof your comments? Greed has always walked among us but we can't help thinking how this greed consuming its consumers is part of the new incentive structure of blockchains with tokens. In this link Rhys Lindmark discusses Ben Thompson's Aggregation Theory, and how blockchains allow startups to compete with the new tech monopolies - by quite simply financially incentivizing early adopters. "Join our tribe and let us be rich together!" (Source: Chris Dixon) There are two things I love about this chart. One is of course it changes everything. The other is that early adopters are highly incentivized to push something that quite simply probably isn't very good! And the other side of pushing something that basically works badly (literally because it's a prototype) is explaining why the competition is even worse. Here we creep into a second debate. What is the world of crypto and blockchain going to look like in twenty years? Hyperbitcoinization is the big daddy of blockchain myths. It is of course that Bitcoin is the one future currency in which scraggly dollars and second rate pounds get priced in. We do not need to say this isn't going to happen because currently crypto is saying this is not going to happen. As of now, Bitcoin is under 40% of the total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies. That says not so good things about Bitcoin, but it says absolutely amazing things about crypto. I have personally suspected that there can be only two or three winners in the digital currency space. Clearly the fantastic economics of new coins makes this a much riskier call than when discussing Google's dominance in search or Facebook's preponderance in social media. However, let's be clear though, not for a second are we saying that Bitcoin cannot be the one true cryptoasset - merely that in 2018 it is all still up for grabs. What excites us at blocktribe is that we think cryptocurrencies are just the tip of the iceberg. Or to follow the tribal analogies, that they are the first Siberians to arrive in North America. If this is the excitement and size we get from censorship resistant digital money transfer, what happens when companies blockchain their business models or when company ownership is secured and distributed via blockchain.
Sometimes it feels like finding the right blockchain developer is like trying to find Big Foot - impossible. However, unlike the guy with the large shoes, blockchain developers actually exist. You just need to know where to look… Here is our breakdown of the top 10 methods for finding the best devs on the block(chain).   1. Blocktribe.com Okay, so your reading this blog on blocktribe, so hopefully you’ve had a chance to look around the site, but let’s say you’ve found this blog from a quick Google search - what is blocktribe and how can this website help me find a developer?  To put it plainly, blocktribe is a dedicated job board for blockchain roles. As an advertiser you will be able to search through a CV database and filter by job title (eg. developer!) and as easy as 1,2,3 you will have a list of amazing candidates at your finger tips.  We will also advertise your job role to our candidates who have indicated on their profile that they are interested in your chosen job title, meaning only the relevant people will be notified about your position.   2. The Big Boards Niche boards like blocktribe are great (even if we are biased) at targeted advertising but there is certainly something to be said about casting a wide net on a much larger and broader job board. You likely know the names already, but Monster, Total Jobs, Reed etc are all good options. Bear in mind though, that your advert needs to be really tight if you are advertising in such a large marketplace. It sounds obvious, but make sure you have a more generic job title that will be likely to come up in searches, be clear on location, salary and make sure your job description is compelling.   3. LinkedIn 100% recommend having your company represented on LinkedIn - that should be paramount. You can also download a free trial of LinkedIn Recruiter (remember to cancel before 30 days are up, otherwise charges will apply) and you can take advantage of enhanced search functions. You can activate this through your Settings and then select Subscriptions.   4. LinkedIn Groups Yes, LinkedIn again, but this time we are talking about Groups. Much like Facebook, LI has thousands of group pages. This cuts down on your search time as there are groups dedicated to blockchain developers – you just need to ask to join and then introduce yourself! To find this, go to LinkedIn and enter your desired group target in the search bar (eg. blockchain developers) press entre. Then click on the More tab and select Groups.   5. Social Media After you post your job on blocktribe, you will be prompted to share your post on social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. Take advantage of this feature and share your advert with your audience! Make sure you are also utilising the functions on your social media. Take Twitter check out popular hashtags and make sure to use them in your tweets. Shy away from using #ad as this is typically associated with paid advertisements but #blockchainjobs is a good place to start. Avoid spamming your followers though as they will probably get fed up and disengage - or worse – unfollow…!   6. Networking In today’s world it feels like so much has to be done online, but there is still so much to be said about going out there and meeting talent in person.  meetup.com is probably the best place to get started - simply search in tech and filter it down from there. There are so many events going on and even if you don’t find a hire, you will almost certainly come away with some great new industry contacts.   7. Recruiters If you don’t want to do the leg work - then luckily you can pay for someone to do it for you! Recruitment agencies will take a job description from you and find a shortlist of candidates to send to you. They will help organise interviews and keep the recruitment process ticking along by constantly finding CVs until you decide on the right person. Research is key here as while great recruitment companies exist, unfortunately so do bad ones. You might find going for a niche supplier is going to provide better results as they should know their industry and their network inside out.   8. Advertise on your site and check your SEO This is obvious but often overlooked (as the obvious things sometimes are) - advertise on your own website. It’s free (excellent) and if someone has taken the time to go to your site they are already more likely to be interested in your brand and essentially, they are doing half the work for you. All it requires is an extra tab or a linked footer and you can list all available roles there. Make sure you list an email address for them to contact you. Or speak to your website provider/designer and ask for them to create an enquiries form for you. Just make sure you check responses from this or you might miss out on someone great. Good SEO is good for everything but having a high search engine ranking certainly will help make your website more visible to the best devs out there.   9. Give them a ring Headhunting can seem intimidating, but it be very fruitful. This typically comes through LinkedIn - see an epic profile, check contact details and give them a ring. Obviously, this person is not expecting your call, they probably aren’t even looking for a job - so tread carefully and be sensitive. If they sound interested, then be respectful that they might be at work and therefore difficult to talk, so perhaps suggest calling them back at a better time for them.   10. Ask the people you know! Ask the people you know if they can make any recommendations. I’ve touched on this above, but it really is the number 1 way to find someone amazing because people very rarely recommend someone unless they know they are really good. There's likely a deeper reason behind this, but in truth it's probably because you don’t want the embarrassment of being associated with someone terrible, so you only end up recommending the best people.  You can reward successful hires through recommendations by offering a referral fee.
