However, Bitcoin's resilience and ability to circumvent government control has made it a popular currency for online transactions.
  • 00:15:00 The Bitcoin system is based on cryptography and open-source software, and allows people to conduct transactions without the need for a third party. In 2011, Dorian Nakamoto, a 64-year-old Japanese-American man, emerged as the mystery founder of Bitcoin after Newsweek magazine claimed to have found him. Nakamoto later denied being the inventor of Bitcoin, and said that he did not want his real name to be associated with the digital currency.

Hal Finney then developed the technology that made Bitcoin possible, and Satoshi Nakamoto built the system. Bitcoin is a decentralized currency that relies on miners to validate transactions. Whoever solves a complex mathematical puzzle first gets rewarded with bitcoins.
  • 00:25:00 The Bitcoin blockchain is the registry that records all Bitcoin transactions, and it has been that way since the very first transaction. Mining is important to ensure the security of the system and no one would invest this much energy unless they were confident that all transactions in the block are legitimate.

The code has been run on tens of thousands of computers and even today, this is how the project continues to grow. Bitcoin is a currency, capital investment repository of value, and object of speculation. Bitcoin is stateless, but behind it stands an army of computer programmers, miners, and users. It is useless to cut the heads off the Hydra--there are too many and they would always grow back. Satoshi wanted to create an alternative to the banks, states, and mega companies, and freedom has to be fought for over and over again.
