  1. This is by far THE best explanation of how blockchain and bitcoin work. Thank you!

  2. 17:00 the system is vulnerable to humans getting smarter and maybe building a quantum computer

  3. Its easy for the bankster and central banks to bring down bitcion to it’s knees and outout business. IRS and Banks will treat bitccoin as an investment and will tax the hell out of it and they can also regulate bitcoin and other crypto currencies out of business. for bitcoins to work somewhat they will have to buy or own mastercard , visa or capital 1. american express. the creator of bitcoin is just like another pyramyd scheme

  4. Just a small nitpicky note: Addresses in Bitcoin are not exactly the public key. They are hashes of the public key of an address in base58
