Okay, so what´s Bitcoin?It´s not an actual coin, it´s ´´cryptocurrency´´, a digital form of payment that is produced (´´mined´´) by lots of people worldwide. It allows for peer-to-peer transactions instantly worldwide, for free or at very low cost.Bitcoin was invented after decades of research into cryptography by software developer Satoshi Nakamoto (believed to be a pseudonym), who designed the alogorithm and introduced it in 2009. His true identity remains a mystery.How does Bitcoin work?Internet users transfer digital assets (bits) to each other on a network. There is no Online bank; rather, Bitcoin has been described as an Internet-wide distributed ledger. Users buy Bitcoin with cash or by selling a product or service for Bitcoin. Bitcoin wallets store and use this digital currency. Users may sell out of this virtual ledger by trading their Bitcoin to someone else who wants in. Anyone can do this, anywhere in the world.There are smartphone apps for conducting mobile Bitcoin transactions, and Bitcoin exchanges are populating the Internet. 1. Language: English.

Bit by Bit: How P2P Is Freeing the World argues that today´s emergent technology is about more than new and cool toys. Jeffrey Tucker, CLO of Liberty.me and Distinguished Fellow of the Foundation for Economic Education, argues that peer-to-peer technology is forging a new and brighter social, economic, and political order. People tend to look at innovations in isolation. Here is my new e-reader. Here is an app I like. Here is my new mobile device and computer. Even bitcoin is routinely analyzed and explained in terms of its properties as an alternative to national currencies, as if there were no more than that at stake. But actually there is a historical trajectory at work here, one that we can trace through its logic, implementation, and spread. It´s the same logic that led from the dial phone at the county store, operated by people pulling and plugging in wires, to the wireless smartphone in your pocket that contains the whole store of human knowledge. It´s all about technology in the service of individuation. Once you understand the driving ethos and voluntarism, creativity, networks, individual initiative; you can see the outlines of a new social structure emerging within our time, an order that defies a century of top-down planning and nation-state restriction. It is coming about not because of political reform. It is not any one person´s creation. It is not happening because a group of elite intellectuals advocated it. The new world is emerging organically, and messily, from the ground up, as an extension of unrelenting creativity and experimentation. In the end, it is emerging out of an anarchist order that no one in particular controls and no one in particular can fully understand. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Larry Wayne.

Excessive costs, cumbersome processes, disincentives and what´s more: all manner of isolated, self-serving sector solutions. A financial system with methods and processes from yesteryear shapes our banking. Indeed, our entire life and society-especially the state and administrative bodies-are based on such archaic processes. In addition, billions of people worldwide are excluded from the financial system as they are not even in possession of a bank account. Banks, currencies, payment methods and administrative transactions are, on the whole, not sustainable. They are responding neither to the needs of many customers/citizens, nor to the challenges of the times. Politically and socially, we are drifting about aimlessly, lacking control and efficiency. Financial expert and entrepreneur Yasin Sebastian Qureshi-at age 29 the youngest person ever licensed to run a European bank-describes groundbreaking solutions that have long been in existence: digitalisation and its offspring the Internet, mobile phones and blockchain which are actively determining progressive developments, and whose most radical embodiment so far has been the rise of Bitcoin an other cryptocurrencies. The revolutionary thing about blockchain, however, is not the mere payment process, but the underlying technology, the more efficient processes and, in particular, its decentralised character and interconnectedness. Together with Benjamin Bilski (Forbes ´´30 under 30´´), Qureshi outlines the future of finance and all the relevant administrative processes in business and state, even entire states, on the basis of such blockchains. The authors also dissect the history, meaning and nature of money; it has always been in a state of transformation-but now is in one of complete upheaval. The two also shed light on the social, economic and political consequences of these mutations. But what will happen if everything is organised into blockchains? The answer is certainly not one that should be feared. The new foundations of our daily and working existence are unleashing forces that have so far been pointlessly and inefficiently tied up in technocratic working environments. Following on from, and leaving behind, the Industrial Revolution, a new revolution is now on the rise. Starting in the financial system, it will turn everything there on its head and qucikly expand to other areas. Blockchain is restoring time and its potential to all us-which we can use for other, better and more creative things. Cash, however, is likely to disappear in the medium term-as well as banks, at least as we know them today.
