Bitcoin or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Transaction History Hashing

I am not an expert. Repeat. I am not an expert. I know enough to be dangerous so pinch the salt and read on. Bitcoin, BTC or $BCOIN on StockTwits is a decentralized value transfer protocol. It is an anarcho-capitalist wet dream with Neal Stephenson as narrator. It is a Ponzi scheme, but so is…
