More Info About Coin

Bitcoin is the first successful internet money based on peer-to-peer technology; whereby no central bank or authority is involved in the transaction and production of the Bitcoin currency. It was created by an anonymous individual/group under the name, Satoshi Nakamoto. The source code is available publicly as an open source project, anybody can look at it and be part of the developmental process.Bitcoin is changing the way we see money as we speak. The idea was to produce a means of exchange, independent of any central authority, that could be transferred electronically in a secure, verifiable and immutable way. It is a decentralized peer-to-peer internet currency making mobile payment easy, very low transaction fees, protects your identity, and it works anywhere all the time with no central authority and banks.Bitcoin is designed to have only 21 million BTC ever created, thus making it a deflationary currency. Bitcoin uses the SHA-256 hashing algorithm with an average transaction confirmation time of 10 minutes. Miners today are mining Bitcoin using ASIC chip dedicated to only mining Bitcoin, and the hash rate has shot up to peta hashes.Being the first successful online cryptography currency, Bitcoin has inspired other alternative currencies such as Litecoin, Peercoin, Primecoin, and so on.The cryptocurrency then took off with the innovation of the turing-complete smart contract by Ethereum which led to the development of other amazing projects such as EOS, Tron, and even crypto-collectibles such as CryptoKitties.

Technical Analysis

if anyone is interested in landing BIP324 (P2P encryption) in bitcoin at some point, or looking to do actual "crypto", please help reviewing the spec and implementation

Bitcoin's P2P node layer could be made stronger by upgrading to encrypted messaging between peers.

Right now peers communicate in an unencrypted fashion which hurts privacy and leaves the network vulnerable to MiTM attacks.

BIP324 fixes this.

It is fine to have a financial strategy that is basically squirrel level IQ.

Lookout for corn and then stash it somewhere cold and dark. Don't share with grasshoppers.

That's it. That is all that is needed.
