The question on every bodies mind right now. Is it a digital currency? Is it the basis for an entirely new financial system?, or is it something else entirely? Regardless of your stance on this, it is going to be big. The technologies that underly Bitcoin are not to be ignored, and the community is talented, vibrant, and motivated to change things in a big way. I’ve included my ramblings on this below (sorry for any shaky cam).
Bitcoin could be the foundation of an entirely new class of financial services, the gateway protocol for millions of the world’s poorest inhabitants to gain access to desperately needed banking, and the glue that intelligently connects our devices to the monetary system. I’m going to cover aspects of this in various future posts, if there is anything that you would like me to address specifically let me know.
