Google Hangouts gets its own dedicated website at hangouts.google.com (Farrha Khan/TechRadar.com)

Google has today announced that Google Hangouts now has its very own website, meaning you no longer need to go through Google+ or Gmail to start chatting. The new website lets you sign in directly to Hangouts - found at hangouts.google.com/ - and lets you see your contacts and your older conversations. It also has three large buttons for video calls, phone calls or sending messages, and of course if you do use Google's other services, you can access them through the Hangouts website too. "From our new site you'll be able to take advantage of the best of Hangouts in the browser, along with an inspiring image to get you through the day," said Jordanna Chord, manager of the Hangouts growth team, on a Google+ post. Google has been slowly revamping all its Hangouts services, with updates to its Hangouts app last week hitting Android , while iOS saw an update a month ago. The new website for Hangouts also takes on Facebook's Messenger service, which is also now a standalone app that doesn't require a Facebook account and is accessible through an app and the web.

An explanation of the stumbling blocks to blockchain scalability and some possible solutions (Kieren James-Lubin/O’Reilly Radar)

Author note: Vitalik Buterin contributed to this article. Editor’s note: Kieren James-Lubin is a program co-chair for our O’Reilly Radar Summit: Bitcoin & the Blockchain on January 27, 2015, in San Francisco. For more on the program and for registration information, visit the Bitcoin & the Blockchain event website . In a talk at CoinJar last fall, well-known bitcoin expert Andreas Antonopoulos made the following comment: “I have no worries that bitcoin can scale, and the simple reason for that is that I know that IPv4 can’t, and yet I use it every day.” The issue of bitcoin scalability and the phrase “blockchain scalability” are often seen in technical discussions of the bitcoin protocol. Will the requirements of recording every bitcoin transaction in the blockchain compromise its security (because fewer users will keep a copy of the whole blockchain) or its ability to handle a great number of transactions (because new blocks on which transactions can be recorded are only produced at limited intervals)? In this article, we’ll explore several meanings of “blockchain scalability” and some high-level technical solutions to the issue. The three main stumbling blocks to blockchain scalability are: The tendency toward centralization with a growing blockchain: the larger the blockchain grows, the larger the requirements become for storage, bandwidth, and computational power that must be spent by “full nodes” in the network, leading to a risk of much higher centralization if the blockchain becomes large enough that only a few nodes are able to process a block. The bitcoin-specific issue that the blockchain has a built-in hard limit of 1 megabyte per block (about 10 minutes), and removing this limit requires a “hard fork” (ie. backward-incompatible change) to the bitcoin protocol. The high processing fees currently paid for bitcoin transactions, and the potential for those fees to increase as the network grows. We won’t discuss this too much, but see here for more detail. We’ll consider these first two issues in detail. The role of mining: Determining consensus and incentivizing participation Bitcoin (or, more generally, cryptocurrency) mining serves several functions. Mining allows the peer-to-peer network that bitcoin is composed of to agree on a canonical order of transactions, thus solving the double spend problem
