Bitcoin for the unconnected: The Finnish protocol that lets you buy and sell currency through your TV

Finnish system Kryptoradio transmits Bitcoin transaction data via airwaves for potential application in everything from vending machines to laundromats.Bitcoin, the cryptocurrency to beat, has found its way into well over a million digital wallets worldwide but it's yet to hit mass adoption. Finnish technology co-operative Koodilehto believes the answer to Bitcoin's search for wider accessibility and reliability could lie in TV and radio signals...

Since early September, a pilot of 'Kryptoradio' — a data transmission protocol developed by Sipola and Joel Lehtonen — has been successfully transmitting Bitcoin transaction and exchange rate data in real time through Finland's digital national TV network....

The network, which covers the entire Finnish population, is run byDigita, which describes the partnership as an "interesting and exciting" way to open up "new possibilities"."What we offer is one-way Bitcoin payment confirmation information and exchange data which anyone can receive through a standard digital TV device and our custom software," Sipola says.

Kryptoradio works by connecting to the Bitcoin network as a transaction occurs. Kryptoradio inspects the transaction and turns the information into a data stream which it sends over the Digita network. Each payment contains identifying information retained from the block chain, which enables it to be sent to the correct recipient.

On the recipient side, the broadcast is picked by a computer connected to any DVB-T receiver allowing Bitcoin payments to be accepted and monitored without an internet connection. Currently, any computers that use Kryptoradio must run Linux, but Koodilehto is looking at expanding support to other platforms.

Bitcoin Everywhere and Anywhere
According to Koodilehto, offering internet-free ways of trading Bitcoin makes the system more accessible and reliable. Kryptoradio won't suffer from internet outages, for example, and can be used in areas where internet connections are poor or where operators don't want to invest in mobile infrastructure.

Koodilehto claims in the future the service could be used to create Bitcoin counterparts for cash payment terminals, which can be utilised in everything from cash registers to vending machines. But for now the co-op is focusing on the transmission side and has opened up its protocol to encourage third party developers to get involved.

"We can send any kind of information we want, but at the moment we use very little bandwidth because Bitcoin data doesn't take up much space," Sipola says. "It's also possible to send text messages via Kryptoradio. There are many uses and applications beyond Bitcoin."

When the need to broadcast larger amounts of data grows, the DVB-T network can be scaled up to meet those needs, Sipola says. Currently Bitcoin protocol restricts block sizes to one megabyte but Koodilehto believes that handling 10 megabyte blocks won't be a problem in the future.

AIR BENGALURU GETS AAA - 2013














THE INTELLIGENTSIA -THE ONE AMONG US(Buddijeevigalu – Ivaroo Nammavare) a documentary feature written by Smt. Sumangala Mummigatti PEX AIR Bengaluru and produced by Sumangala ummigatti and Shashikaanth Mummigatti PEX AIR Bengaluru gets certificate of merit in AAA-2013.


About the feature : The intelligentsia – the one among us(Buddijeevigalu –Ivaroo Nammavare) is a unique documentary. The microphone of All India Radio which records voices of different genres has made an attempt to record the voices of specially privileged children who though grown up are yet childlike. Though they seem like bringing pain to their parents, siblings and themselves, there are various strata among them. Some can sing, play instruments, while some brighten up their eyes and smile, some speak word by word. This documentary is born out of these childlike talks.

We can experience the pain the mothers undergo, the effort of the teachers, and the viewpoint of a psychiatrist on how the society and the guardians should behave with such children.The love they shower is immense. These innocents treat others as themselves and are contended. The listeners can vouch these voices only through the attempt of All India radio. If the society and their guardians treat them in the right manner then their  life will also be fulfilled.

FM Radio by students creates air waves



A Frequency Modulated (FM) radio set up by students of St Joseph Convent English Medium School Parayamkulam near Nooranad, here, is playing a significant role in nurturing the talent of school kids.
The first transmission of FM, ‘Dhaara’, from the school commenced in September and it has become a hit with the students. The programmes, right from education to entertainment are being produced by small groups of students.

The performance of the Radio Jockeys, Muhammad Saalih and Lakshmi Das has been well appreciated. The FM is popular among the students as it caters to the needs of the present curriculum. It helps develop their creativity and communicative skills. It tells them about current affairs.It was Sis Soumya, principal of the school who took the initiative in bringing the FM radio to school. “The idea crossed my mind when I watched the movie ‘Philips and the Monkey Pen’. I discussed the matter in a meeting of parents and teachers. We set up a core panel of teachers and parents who would provide moral and technical support in setting up the FM station. The station, set up in a single room of school, will be used as a tool to educate the students and develop in them an interest in academic activities though entertainment”, she says.

The FM radio station, which can be heard within a radius of 100 to 500 metres of the school, will open for half an hour every day during lunch break. Each division is assigned the task of preparing programmes for each day. The theme and ideas need to be discussed with the teachers. Apart from this, every day, a question is asked through the radio. It should be answered on a sheet of paper and put in a box near the FM station. The winners will be declared through a lucky draw every day.

RJ Lekshmi Das of class twelve says the radio gave her the confidence to pursue her academics activities. “The anchoring, contents of the programmes and the assignments are extremely useful and give us deep insights into life”, she says. The students are now planning to invite celebrities to join them in live chat programmes. “I was a complete novice. I became part of the programme for the simple reason that I love listening to the radio. Now I find myself presenting programmes. I really enjoy it”, says Muhammad Saalih, of class XII.
