Our first duty is to protect and defend forever bitcoin ecosystem and bitcoin network. The sole principle of existence and the future is this. This principle is your most valuable treasure. Also even in the future, there will be internal and external enemies who will want to deprive you of this treasure. One day if you are obliged to defend Bitcoin and the network, you will not think of the circumstances, opportunities and conditions in which you will be found in order to begin your duties…
If you peruse the various subreddits on the subject of crypto you'll see incredible frustration among the various communities behind other coins. Faster transactions, more transactions, larger blocks, faster blocks, turing completeness, confidential transactions – yet the price of bitcoin keeps going up without these.
Because bitcoin, at this stage in history, isn't about any of those things. Bitcoin is a system that can be used to reliably store value at no cost. Scarcity and security are the keys to value and you don't need any of those other features. And nobody has suggested any way at all to improve on these features of bitcoin.
So bitcoin keeps on winning on value and becomes the fastest growing way to store value. And of course, its value skyrockets as more value is crammed into it.
When the time comes to go from savings to spending, the competitive landscape will be very different. But you can't spend what you haven't earned and saved, and all of today's alternatives to bitcoin will have failed at earning the position of a savings vehicle.

Bitcoin Forum – Project Development
A method (300) and system (1) of determining a common secret for two nodes (3, 7). Each node (3, 7) has a respective asymmetric cryptography pair, each pair including a master private key and a master public key. Respective second private and public keys may be determined based on the master private key, master public key and a deterministic key. A common secret may be determined at each of the nodes based on the second private and public keys. In one example, a node (3, 7) may determine the…
The invention provides a computer- implemented solution for controlling access to a computer-related resource such as, for example, a digital wallet. In one or more embodiments, the wallet may be implemented using a blockchain such as the Bitcoin blockchain but the invention is not limited in this regard. Use of the invention during the initial set-up of the wallet can enable subsequent operations such as wallet transactions to be handled in a secure manner over an insecure channel such as…
