This series will explore bitcoin basics, starting with the “why.”

Why Bitcoin? The advent of new technology has changed our world. However, our system of money wasn’t designed with our technology-laced, global economy in mind. The 21st century needs a new system of money. One that is open, borderless, neutral, censorship resistant, immutable, and permissionless. Furthermore, one that serves the needs of every person no matter where they are and no matter who they are. Any time, any place. Simply put, a system designed for our modern economy.

That’s Bitcoin.

In a well-functioning economy, the easy of use and perceived stability tends to obscure the risks to freedom and other problems inherent in centrally controlled money. In short, you don’t notice because they don’t generally affect your day to day. Throughout this series on bitcoin basics, we’ll explore the what, why, and how of bitcoin and other blockchain technologies. Stay tuned!
