Bitcoin is a new asset type with a unique set of characteristics:
- Bitcoin is not controlled by any person, company, bank or government
- Bitcoin is absolutely and provably scarce; its supply is limited to 21 million BTC
- Bitcoin is incredibly secure; it is secured by planetary-scale mining operations
- Bitcoin cannot be confiscated, bitcoin transactions cannot be stopped
- Bitcoin is politically neutral, everyone is equal on the Bitcoin network
- Bitcoin is open for anyone to join from anywhere in the world
The new reality is that humans no longer need a bank in order to hold money or transact with others. Some people believe that Bitcoin is poised to become a global currency for the Internet Age. Others disagree. We believe it is wise to pay attention to Bitcoin and invest time into self education about this global phenomenon.
