 What Is Bitcoin?bitcoin

  • “crypto currency” with no central issuer to avoid all the pitfalls associated with government issued money
  • It’s kind of like a barter network; you all agree that there is some value to Bitcoins so you accept it as you would money.
  • A Bitcoin is worth about $23USD at this point in time.
  • There is a finite number of Bitcoins that can be put into circulation. It’s 21 million and they won’t all fully be in circulation until 2040.
  • The problem with barter is the “coincidence of wants”
  • Money has to has some sort of value in order for this whole thing to work.
  • Learn an overview of Bitcoin here. Or here at the actual Bitcoin site here.
  • How do you get Bitcoins? Mining or buying from an exchange like Mt. Gox here.
  • Places where you can spend Bitcoins here.
