Intricacies of Bitcoin
Disclaimer, Moose is a proud owner of bitcoin. The question, “What is bitcoin?”, ignites plenty of follow on questions which will lead down a deep rabbit hole of information about the vast technology. It is a fascinating subject to dive into but beware, once the learning process begins surrounding the technologies of cryptocurrencies it may be difficult to keep your interest towards other less interesting investment vehicles.
Bitcoin was established in 2009 as a peer-to-peer digital cash system right at the beginning of the recovery from the 2008 economic crash. Satoshi Nakamoto is widely known as the creator of Bitcoin, funny enough that person is an alias and the true identity of the creator is unknown. The original white paper first describing the concept of bitcoin in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto can be found here.
