Here's an annoying video to explain everything to you
In many ways, Bitcoin is like Gold:
Gold is money: it provides the store of value, safe from counterparty risk. While Bitcoin functions as currency: instant, digital, easily transactable and highly portable. Both of them are anonymous and neither of them is dependent on a centralized institution for their existence.
Right now bitcoin is in its early stages and is extremely speculative and volatile. I am not posting this, encouraging you to put your savings into bitcoin but rather, I am posting this as a show of support for bitcoin itself.
If you're new to this blog you might want to check out some of my poetry.
Anyway, if you like what you read here, drop some BTC in the bucket!
