Bitcoin may seem complicated at first, but is actually very simple to use. As long as the user is careful in securing their digital wallet and uses the system correctly, Bitcoin can be a very simple way to send and receive funds. While the first idea of cryptocurrency such as this was described by Wei Dai in 1998, the first real prototype, Bitcoin, was created by Satoshi Nakamoto, a name used by someone whose real identity is still unknown since first publishing the paper, ´´Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System´´, on October 31, 2008 to a cryptography mailing list. Bitcoin was first actually implemented in January of 2009. It was released as an open-source code, and anyone could create their own version of cryptocurrency using this information. Satoshi Nakamoto stepped down in 2010, and Gavin Andresen took over the reigns. Andresen then worked to ensure that Bitcoin was completely decentralized, meaning that no single entity has control over the system. Andresen said, ´´As soon as Satoshi stepped back and threw the project onto my shoulders, one of the first things I did was try to decentralize that. So, if I get hit by a bus, it would be clear that the project would go on.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Moore.

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency and digital payment system invented by an unknown programmer, or a group of programmers, under the name Satoshi Nakamoto. It was released as open-source software in 2009. The system is peer-to-peer, and transactions take place between users directly, without an intermediary. These transactions are verified by network nodes and recorded in a public distributed ledger called a blockchain. Since the system works without a central repository or single administrator, bitcoin is called the first decentralized digital currency. Besides being created as a reward for mining, bitcoin can be exchanged for other currencies, products, and services in legal or black markets. As of February 2015, over 100,000 merchants and vendors accepted bitcoin as payment. According to research produced by Cambridge University in 2017, there are 2.9 to 5.8 million unique users using a cryptocurrency wallet, most of them using bitcoin. 1. Language: English.

In bitcoin, you will have access to one of the most inexpensive and fastest means of money transfer across international barriers. Via bitcoin, revolution has been birthed in commerce and the modern-day concept of money. The entire idea of bitcoin came to the fore in 2009, when Satoshi Nakamoto published a paper and also made bitcoin available as a free software project. The purpose of this work was to deliver bitcoin to the world as a new and better means of money transfer. He designed it as a system of online value transfer that is in support of a highly prospective Internet currency. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Andrea Giordani.

Blockchain is a revolutionary computer programming technology that was first proposed in 2008 with Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper on bitcoin. However, its roots go far deeper, as Nakamoto’s white paper actually built on advances and ideas in cryptography and cybersecurity that date all the way back to the early 1990s. Today, blockchain is turning into an Internet phenomenon that is changing how we think of cybersecurity and how data can be safely managed and maintained. This book will give you a detailed, under-the-hood look at how blockchain works. The first chapter will go into detail about the model that most of the Internet is based on, the client-server model, and why it is showing signs of age. The Internet is unable to keep up with the popularity that it has spawned, and it is facing increasing challenges at keeping up with its own demand. Additionally, the centralization of the client-server model makes the information prone to tampering, manipulation, and hacks. The second chapter will look at how blockchain technology provides the answers to many of the problems created by the aging client-server model. The third chapter takes a technical look at how blockchain works, but in a way that is easy for newbies to understand. It looks carefully at what different terms mean and explains them in an easy-to-understand format. It then details how a blockchain transaction works, from beginning to end. By the time you finish listening to this chapter, you will feel confident that any information that you send over a blockchain is safe and will reach its destination in one piece. Blockchain isn’t without its problems, though. The fourth chapter will explore some of the problems that blockchain is facing as it matures and enters the world of mainstream business and finance. These problems include legal issues, environmental issues, scalability issues, and consensus issues. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mike Wood.

In 2008, while the world was busy panicking about the global financial crisis, a computer programmer going by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto posted a message on an out-of-the-way mailing list. ´I´ve been working on a new electronic cash system,´ he said. Nobody seemed to care. ‘It might make sense to get some just in case it catches on,’ he suggested. How right he was. What he had programmed would become the world’s most famous alternative currency – Bitcoin. It would catch the zeitgeist in a way only two people foresaw. A cult of devotees was inspired – economists, anarchists, speculators, computer coders, libertarians, criminals, entrepreneurs. Early adopters would become multi-millionaires. Now the suggestion is that Bitcoin will do to banking and finance what email did to the postal service and what the internet did to publishing: destroy old monopolies, creating new opportunities for the masses. Some even suggest that the technology behind Bitcoin – known as the block chain – will reform our Western systems of democracy, giving us the revolution so many are clamouring for. In this gripping book, Dominic Frisby tells the amazing story of Bitcoin. He solves the mystery surrounding the identity of Bitcoin’s secretive creator. He shows how Bitcoin is going to change the world. And, perhaps most of all, he does something nobody else has hitherto been able to do: he explains in layman’s language how the bally thing works. 1.

Okay, so what´s Bitcoin? It´s not an actual coin, it´s "cryptocurrency"; a digital form of payment that is produced ("mined") by lots of people worldwide. It allows for peer-to-peer transactions instantly worldwide, for free or at very low cost. Bitcoin was invented after decades of research into cryptography by software developer Satoshi Nakamoto (believed to be a pseudonym), who designed the alogorithm and introduced it in 2009. His true identity remains a mystery. How does Bitcoin work? Internet users transfer digital assets (bits) to each other on a network. There is no Online bank; rather, Bitcoin has been described as an Internet-wide distributed ledger. Users buy Bitcoin with cash or by selling a product or service for Bitcoin. Bitcoin wallets store and use this digital currency. Users may sell out of this virtual ledger by trading their Bitcoin to someone else who wants in. Anyone can do this, anywhere in the world. There are smartphone apps for conducting mobile Bitcoin transactions, and Bitcoin exchanges are populating the Internet. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jimmy Kieffer.
