About Bitcoin and the Future of Money

Traditional financial systems requite trusted participants such as banks and lawyers. They require legal protection, government regulation and policing of fraud. Bitcoin is a low-cost peer-to-peer payment system based on cryptography which claims to make all these things unnecessary. Bitcoin is a radical innovation and promises to change our lives. In April 2013 The Economist have called bitcoin Digital Gold and starting from this moment bitcoin became a of mainstream financial instrument. In reality bitcoin and other digital currencies have suffered from many serious problems and have been so far a nightmare for investors.
