How Much Do Software Engineers Really Make in Each City?

What is the best city in the world for a software engineer? San Francisco? New York?

From a salary standpoint, Silicon Valley is the clear winner, boasting an average income of $110,554 per year, according to data from Glassdoor. But even with six-figure salaries, many developers are finding it difficult to afford the sky-high rent in the Bay Area.

Coin Dance – Bitcoin Block Details


Details on bitcoin and the block chain and everything you never knew you needed to know.


A cross-platform application that allows trading currency (dollars, euros, etc) for bitcoin entirely decentralized

Bisq is a cross-platform desktop application that allows users to trade national currency (dollars, euros, etc) for bitcoin without relying on centralized exchanges such as Coinbase, Bitstamp or (the former) Mt. Gox.

By running Bisq on their local machines, users form a peer-to-peer network. Offers to buy and sell bitcoin are broadcast to that network, and through the process of offering and accepting these trades via the Bisq UI, a market is established.

There are no central points of control or failure in the Bisq network. There are no trusted third parties. When two parties agree to trade national currency for bitcoin, the bitcoin to be bought or sold is held in escrow using multisignature transaction capabilities native to the bitcoin protocol.

Because the national currency portion of any trade must be transferred via traditional means such as a wire transfer, Bisq incorporates first-class support for human arbitration to resolve any errors or disputes.

I don’t count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting.  When I feel pain, that’s when I start counting, because that’s when it really counts.” – Muhammad Ali
