  • “Bitcoin will continue to see tremendous growth and innovation over the coming years. It’s important to remember, Bitcoin is something different to everyone and its always changing and evolving.

And to the four billion people in the world who are either not banked or underbanked, it’s a way to gain global and equal access”

“First they Ignore you, Then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win” – Gandhi

  • “It’s hard to control something that exists nowhere and everywhere at the same time. With peer-to-peer transactions, there are no servers to shut down, no kingpins to arrest, no warehouses to bust. Regulators can only go after local bitcoin exchanges and service providers, effectively impairing their own ability to see what’s going on”

The true cost of Bitcoin transactions & The importance of Bitcoin scaling

By Erik Voorhees @ moneyandstate.com

  • “The true cost of a Bitcoin transaction can be better considered as:Cost = F + T + Ru

    Cost = Fee + Time taken to determine fee + Risk of uncertainty”

  • And let’s end this silly false dichotomy of Bitcoin as a “payment system” vs a “settlement system.” Such distinction is a relic of fiat banking networks and has no place with blockchain-based assets. The reality is this: every payment on a blockchain network is a settlement, and the cheaper these transactions, the more widespread uses the platform will find, meaning greater utility, a broader and more decentralized user-base, higher market capitalization, more liquidity, and therefore more hashpower dedicated to it, and more security derived therefrom.
