This website is for people interested to learn more about Bitcoin and open Blockchain.
This is a one stop shop for information on Bitcoin protocol and sub/peripheral topics (Networks, Economics/History of Money, Privacy/Security, Bitcoin Products & Services).
My background is in finance and engineering, and worked on financial systems implementations for over a decade.
My journey with Bitcoin started in 2013 with a complete disregard and total scepticism for this new technology. Indeed, at first it wasn’t even clear to me that Bitcoin is a technology as I have yet to come to the realization that money itself is a technology.
My actual journey with Bitcoin officially started by reading the Bitcoin white paper by Satoshi Nakamoto, which describes the design principles of Bitcoin:
The three concepts that absolutely struck me were:
- Bitcoin is a technology, and a communication protocol like the internet
- Bitcoin is the first significant innovation in the technology of money since ages
- There is no way to undo Bitcoin, Bitcoin has no single point of failure, it can’t be “shut down”
When I came to these realizations, I have spent any second I had at my disposal to learn anything about Bitcoin as a protocol, as a monetary system, and as a communication system.
I also felt compelled to share with other my journey that I was going through and what I have been learning.
In addition to the thebitgeneration.org I have opened what is now the largest Bitcoin Meetup in London, which serves a community of 1,000 + members:
Also, I have started a YouTube channel where I invite the most influential and experienced people in the space to share their experiences and recent developments:
