Bitcoin started 2017 with a value of just $ 900. By December, it had jumped to nearly $ 20,000. To the casual observer, it appeared the world was finally …
Google Alert – bitcoin
Muslim clerics just declared that owning bitcoin was compatible with Islam. A saudi just opened (correction: Kuwaiti Is just opening) another $ 100 million dollar bitcoin fund as a result. The new flood of money coming in will dwarf all previous inflows.

I just moved to Spain and wanted to check on my wallet from a new PC. I just googled Blockchain for fast access and thank god I noticed that the website was spelled differently. I would have never thought that google would show me a fake phishing site as a first result for a popular website.
Just be careful when trying to access Blockchain or any other crypto wallet through a link or google and don't forget to HODL.
P.S I do not have any adware or malware on my computer.

I don’t know what ex. the fields “tx_index”, “type”, “n” mean.
I originally created this thread which brought up a good number of points from the people who posted. https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/4yvhk0/how_will_bitcoin_get_to_the_poor/
I think one conclusion that seems to be consistently drawn about Bitcoin is that its success will be related to the number of people using it. I think the concept of giving bitcoin away is still interesting because of the potential for more people to use it. Simply giving it away to "help the poor" might not be a good reason (teach a person to fish vs give him the fish principal) as discussed in the previous thread. Perhaps giving it away to undermine the current fiat system is. This would require educating the poor about bitcoin, ie education/teaching.
I'd like to discuss what effect if any, would giving out a large number of bitcoin in small increments to millions (perhaps billions) of individuals around the world have? Could this be a faster track to wider bitcoin adoption, and how could a faster track to educating others around the world about bitcoin be accomplished?
