I heard about Bitcoin before it was cool. I read (well, skimmed) the paper. I thought, “that looks interesting” and went about my business.
2 years later and don’t I feel silly. I don’t know if Bitcoin will replace fiat money. I’m not sure Bitcoin has got it totally right (the 21 million BTC hard limit being the thing I’m most concerned about). But I do think that it has paved the way for a mechanism of exchange that fits the internet. Very exciting.
Satoshi Nakamoto I salute you.
