Scientist says new currency will supplant Bitcoin

PORTLAND, Ore. - Nov. 13, 2017 - PRLog -- CloudCoin founder Sean Worthington appeared on the nationally syndicated Lars Larson Show Nov. 13.  The program airs on more than 100 stations coast-to-coast on the Compass Media network and online via the TalkStreamLive network.

Worthington appeared promoting his new book, Beyond Bitcoin: The Future of Digital Currency and discussed why Bitcoin is flawed.  He listed the advantages of his alternative, CloudCoin.

CloudCoin is a digital currency that Worthington says is superior to Bitcoin because CloudCoin's underlying technology, the patent-pending RAIDA system, solves the problems faced by Bitcoin's blockchain technology.

"I think you're right that currencies don't have to be created by the government," Larson said, and asked Worthington how CloudCoin will build trust among users.

Worthington said money is just information or data.

"Money has to have both physical and logical integrity," he said, "These are the same things we have on databases.  Money can't simply appear—like counterfeiting—or disappear, where people lose money.  And we have to be sure money doesn't change ownership without authorization."

Larson and Worthington also talked about how governments will be threatened by digital currencies like CloudCoin.

CloudCoins have been trading publicly for several months and the trading price has risen as much as 850%.

Worthington's book details Bitcoin and blockchain's shortcomings, including the sheer size of the blockchain (150 GB and growing), the massive amount of power consumed by Bitcoin mining (as much as the entire state of New Mexico each day) and the tremendous length of time it takes to conduct Bitcoin transactions (from two hours to as much as two weeks).

Worthington is a tenured faculty member in the Computer Science department at Butte College in Calif. His book is available free at for a limited time, along with five free CloudCoins.
