It would be impossible for every Fidelity brokerage customer to own even one Bitcoin. This is why Bitcoins are worth thousands of dollars, while a dollar is only worth one dollar (and only until next year when when it’s worth 97 cents). – Erik Voorhees

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

AA points out: ‘wallet’ was a poor choice of word, ‘keychain’ would be better.

Andreas Antonopoulos points out how, in the early days, certain terms like "coin" and "wallet" were selected in an apparent attempt to make it easier for people to understand, but some of these terms have ended up causing a lot of confusion.

For example, our "coins" are not stored in our "wallets". lol You can't just copy your physical wallet (the one in your pocket or handbag). You can go to a hardware store and copy a key (or ring full of keys), and both keys will open the same locks. It's important to protect our keys, and to have an emergency back up copy stored in a secure, but separate location.

Marc van der Chijs on Twitter: Reading through some of the Bitmain IPO documents. My conclusion: they made a HUGE mistake selling BTC for BCH. If I would still hold any BCH I would sell them right away. I will stay far away from both Bitmain & BCH.
