Bitcoin is the most extraordinary technology I've seen in a while. It has the potential to change the world. Its a single global currency beyond the reach of banks and politicians. Its been slowly rising in price for months now and the core has not be hacked, despite the fact that you can make a lot of money anonymously by doing so. You can send money around the world with almost no cost and with great security.
Despite that, the inventor remains totally unknown! The inventor used a pseudonym, and after the network started taking off he disappeared. Nobody knows who it was or where he came from. This extraordinary work of genius was anonymously given to the internet community.
Some day it will inspire a great tech-thriller movie.
