" Bitcoin was created to serve a highly political intent, a free and uncensored network where all can participate with equal access."
"Bitcoin and the ideas behind it, will be a disrupter to the traditional notions of currency. In the end currency will be better for it."
"Bitcoin is a digital gold- it is harder, stronger, faster and smarter than any money that has preceded it."
Satoshi Nakamoto, Founder of Bitcoin
"The root problem with conventional currency is all the trust that’s required to make it work. The central bank must be trusted not to debase the currency, but the history of fiat currencies is full of breaches of that trust. Banks must be trusted to hold our money and transfer it electronically, but they lend it out in waves of credit bubbles with barely a fraction in reserve. We have to trust them with our privacy, trust them not to let identity thieves drain our accounts.”
