We continue to look at the even bigger picture, the jaw dropping changes that bitcoin could provide in what we would call a revolution.

Like the Internet itself, Bitcoin will change everything.

The concept of a decentralized network that could achieve consensus (agreement) without any central controlling authority was an unresolved problem in computer science called the Byzantine Generals’ Problem. The Bitcoin protocol solved this problem in 2008 and that in itself is truly revolutionary.

Bitcoin is the Internet of money and the Bitcoin currency is only the first application. At its core Bitcoin is a revolutionary technology that will change the world forever.
