Of Course You Can Own Bitcoins

Can you really own Bitcoins? Or do you merely have possession of keys that grant a high probability of exclusive control?

The Rise of the Individual

The Rise of the Individual

“Not since the gunpowder revolution were ordinary men & women able to stand up to those who chose to oppress or rule them unjustly. Only this time, it can be done in a non-violent method, whereby one can peacefully opt out” – Aleks Svetski

Today we read the epic conclusion to our walk through The Bitcoin Times Ed 2 with a piece from the founder, Aleks Svetski, “The Rise of the Individual.” For the revolutionaries, the visionaries, and the dissidents, this article is not to be missed.

The Rise of the Individual

The Information Theory of Money

“Prices are the coordinating force of a free market system. Each individual decision-maker can rely on the prices of goods and services to help with their decision making, as the prices themselves are a distillation of all known market information into a single metric.”  – Dan Held

This is one of those articles that just explores the emergent brilliance of the free market system & easily got me into a near 40 minute rant afterward. Prices are not arbitrary, and a market price is quite possibly the most information dense piece of actionable data you can find anywhere. Learn all about it, in this piece from The Bitcoin Times Ed 2, “The Information Theory of Money.”
