comment Bitcoin and Halakha
Gold requires no signatures, this is because it is not real money as asserted in the answer from @Ariel if my understanding is correct? And cash requires no signature by a human hand? So? I have to admit I am perplexed at this point. What is the body of halachah on signatures called?

The seal comes from the individual sending the 'money', not the government, does that matter?

Cryptocurrencies are actually built on top of signature systems, digital, cryptographic signature systems though: the khan academy series is informative: www.khanacademy.org/economics-finance-domain/core-finance/money-and-banking/bitc‌​oin/v/bitcoin-what-is-it

comment What happened to Avraham's other sons?
Hmm, I don't really know much else. Are the Midianites descended from Midian? I'm mostly just broadly curious if the tradition says anything about this.

comment What was/is the leviathan as described in Tanach and Rabbinic literature?
Can it be assumed to be kosher? Then we'd know it has scales and fins?

comment How do Ethiopian Jews see the Book of Jubilees?
I think I'm specifically wondering about Chumash but also curious about Tanach. It's my current understanding that it's seen as on par with the Tanach outside of Chumash.

comment Did Moshe Rabbeinu See God?
Thanks so much! I really appreciate it! This is exactly what I was looking for, I knew it was metaphorical but I was wondering what the exact metaphor was.

comment Why did the Egyptian “astrologers” tell Pharaoh that a savior would be born?
No real power of prediction or no supernatural or divine power of prediction? Most people have some power of prediction. I predict someone will read this. What if they were doing it based on the science of the times?
