Bitcoin is an adversarial network; by my count there were 68 attempts in the past week to feed an invalid block to my node. There was also an attempt to create 234,512 BTC out of thin air. This is why we don’t trust, we verify.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Bitcoin is distinct from all the centrally controlled securities (ETH, ICO’s and many other alts). Satoshi’s wisdom was not only in its creation but also in stepping back. Lack of central authority is why Bitcoin endures. Nobody to pay for marketing campaigns is a feature.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

Can we stop with the Btrash, Bitcoin,com, Ver related posts? It’s all insignificant compared to Bitcoin and you’re only giving that miniature shitstorm oxygen. Ver also loves all the attention – don’t feed his Narcissistic personality disorder. Ignore him.

MtGox trustee confirms he did not sell BTC at same time as moving them, also didn’t affect price

There was an update over at mtgox.com today, the trustee announces he did not sell coins at the same time as moving them.

He also says he sold them in a way which would not affect market price.

There's been a lot of FUD about this over the last couple of weeks and its starting to look like it was all bullshit.

Here's the link : https://www.mtgox.com/img/pdf/20180317_qa.pdf

NBC just did one of the best stories on Bitcoin I have ever seen mainstream media do. Excellent explanation. Mentioned the drop but also pointed out its sustained growth dispute that drop.

The only criticism I have came from two bad quotes from a guy with the Digital Currency Group.

He said "bitcoin is an investment" . That's wrong. It's a protocol. This is what it really is and it's a very important thing to realize as the IRS and your accountant attempts to figure out how it should be taxed.

He also said " you will either make a lot of money or you will lose all your money" . That's completely wrong. Bitcoin will never be worth nothing, anymore than an ounce of gold will ever be worth nothing. People need to stop saying that. It's false and people in the industry especially should know better.

I spent 3 months building one of the best apps to track cryptocurrencies. Exchanges API sync, wallet tracking and many other features. I am not 16 but I invested a lot of time into this, can I get some attention anyway or am I going to get randomly downvoted as always? The app is also free.
