Thanks to the genius of Satoshi Nakamoto, all you need is an old computer and a little bit of tech savvy to have an equal say in the development of the world’s first truly global monetary network. And, perhaps for the first time in human history, everybody’s voice could be weighted equally. No matter who you are or what influence you wield, Bitcoin leveled the playing field like never before.
Many myths persist about Bitcoin. One of the most widely believed, yet deeply mistaken, being the idea that Bitcoin is “only-used-for-buying-things-that-are-illegal.” Because it’s anonymous. The fact of the matter, however, is that Bitcoin isn’t actually anonymous at all. The movement of individual coins can be precisely traced.
