“Bitcoin is digital money. But it is so much more than that. Saying Bitcoin is digital money is like saying the Internet is a fancy telephone. It’s like saying the Internet is all about email. Money is just the first application [of Bitcoin].
“Bitcoin is a technology, it is a currency, and it is an international network of payment and exchange that is completely decentralized. It doesn’t rely on banks. It doesn’t rely on governments.
“This invention is truly revolutionary. And when we look back at these moments, we will see that this is a historic moment in the evolution of computer science. But also a social and political revolution in the making.”
– Andreas M. Antonopoulos
