Last week we reached our most significant milestone yet, 100,000 satisfied miners!
Dear Bitcoin community members,
We believe Bitcoin is one of the most exciting innovations the world has ever seen and has the potential to transform the lives of billions of people across the globe. We are not alone in this belief. There are hundreds of thousands of believers just like us and that number is growing every day.
What makes someone an expert? Do they have to be right 100% of the time? Do they have to have encyclopedic knowledge of a certain subject or be able to predict unforeseen events in a particular field? The answer is yes and no.
One of the biggest recurring criticisms of Bitcoin is that it is hard to use it. People say that there just aren’t enough companies that accept the currency to justify using it, and that the fact companies don’t use the currency is in itself an indictment of Bitcoin.
If you have followed the Bitcoin industry over the past few years, you’ve seen all the ups and downs. From just a few pennies back in 2009 to over $1000 in 2014 and now to the mid $200’s where it’s been for much of the year. One word can sum up the Bitcoin price: “volatile”.
