Although our brand is evolving,
our values remain. Take a closer look at the symbolism inside our new logo.
Bitcoin is a copy-resistant file
Bitcoin is the first-ever digital “file” that can’t be copied. DVDs, music, classified information... As Edward Snowden and Chelsea Manning have shown, even top-secret government documents can be copied. Bitcoin is the first digital file ever that cannot be copied. You would have as much luck sticking a bar of gold in a Xerox machine as you would trying to duplicate Bitcoin.
What is the value of a digital file which cannot be copied? Money, certainly, is a good use case. Nobody wants to use money that someone else can make more of… However, money is just the tip of the iceberg. Bitcoin is digital trust and we’re only just beginning to find out how to make use of this property.
Bitcoin offers security
Bitcoin is the world’s most secure cryptocurrency. It is backed by a network of more than 1 million ASIC miners—machines collectively worth billions of dollars. This network of computers is what makes Bitcoin secure and immutable (cannot be hacked). We could further explain Bitcoin’s security network with an analogy.
A friend asks, why is Bitcoin so special? Bitcoin claims to have excellent security but there’s another cryptocurrency that makes the exact same claim. If both projects say that they’re immutable and secure, what’s the difference? Why is Bitcoin so great?
The Safe Analogy
Imagine you have $1,000,000 in gold coins.
Scenario 1 - The coins are stored in a bank vault. The vault is sealed with 12-inch blast doors that can only be opened via authorized fingerprint. The premises are monitored with cameras and infrared sensors. Trigger happy guards with automatic rifles patrol the premises.
Scenario 2 - The coins are stored in a $200 safe that’s poorly hidden in someone’s closet.
From a very high level, we can claim that both sets of coins are equally secure, as both sets are stored in a locked safe. This is the same thing as saying that Bitcoin and the other cryptocurrency network are equally secure.
As soon as we look closer though it’s quite obvious where the gold is safer. The same is true for Bitcoin. As soon as we look at what backs up the claim of immutability, we can see why Bitcoin is the safest protocol. Bitcoin is secure because it would take a multi-billion dollar investment to buy enough hardware to attack it successfully. That’s if the potential attacker could even buy the hardware, as such a large purchase would exceed available supply and raise any number of red flags.
On the other hand, some other crypto networks can be attacked with rented hardware at a minimal cost (thousands to tens of thousands of dollars).
Is Bitcoin money?
Show me the money!
When most people think of Bitcoin, they probably think of it as a currency. Below are two explanations of how Bitcoin works as money. There’s the simple explanation, ideal for Thanksgiving dinner conversations. Then there’s the longer explanation, for those who want to see the full picture.
Bitcoin Explained in 60 Seconds
Bitcoin is like a digital money order that you can send anywhere in the world. Unlike Western Union, the Bitcoin network functions 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Unlike a bank, anyone in the world can create an account for free and transactions cannot be stopped by a government or any other organization.
A majority of the time, a transaction will cost a few dollars or less and take about an hour. However, when the network is busy, a transaction can cost more and take longer, but this is rather unusual.
