I still have one question, what is bitcoin?

Peter Petrov says:

If you have a Bitcoin you have your own bank! That's why it's a bad idea to trust a bank, government, investment fund or anybody with your own Bitcoin. It doesn't belong in a bank account or 401k. It should be stored in your own (cold storage) wallet which is more secure than a bank account and only you have the key. No middlemen, no problems. They never had the money anyway.

Nany Pop says:

When you wish to find a method to generate Bitcoin you only want to look for " bitcoin pranaholistico " in Google or Yahoo. I hope you will succeed.

Andre v d ende says:

This was not an expaination of bitcoin,this was fud.


We are simply making another currency. A currency that we collectively manage. A universal currency. One day, the problem would be who decides how much bitcoin is produced. When it becomes too much, we realize we created another problem.

We should have stuck with gold as a source of wealth.
