over the last couple of years digital currencies like bitcoin have captured the imaginations of everyone from investors to business owners. and, thanks to advocacy groups and more than the 100,000 businesses who accept bitcoin, we can expect even more awareness and acceptance of digital currencies.but, you can’t discuss these digital currencies without mentioning the blockchain.if you’re new to the blockchain, it’s simply “a public ledger, shared between many different parties, in which anonymous transactions are recorded.” in other words, it’s strictly person-to-person. this means that banks, financial institutions or government bodies aren’t involved in the transfer of funds -- which also means that money can be transferred faster and cheaper. additionally, because ...

photo credit: john bazemore/apthe atlanta hawks had their exit interviews on saturday, and wouldn’t you know, dwight howard spent his pouting.this was supposed to be a quiet and happy season for howard, who returned to his hometown of atlanta as a veteran just looking for a place to fit in after relatively disastrous stints in los angeles and houston. for the most part, that’s how it went. he played a full season, averaged 13 points and 12 rebounds per game, and filled the space left by al horford with enough competence to get the hawks into the playoffs.advertisementand then everything went wrong. howard was a ghost in atlanta’s series against washington—he played 26 minutes per game and logged just 16 fourth-quarter minutes in the six-game series—and he doesn’t seem too happy...
