A community dedicated to Bitcoin, the currency of the Internet. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital money. Bitcoins are issued and managed without any central authority whatsoever: there is no government, company, or bank in charge of Bitcoin. You might be interested in Bitcoin if you like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer systems, or economics. A large percentage of Bitcoin enthusiasts are libertarians, though people of all political philosophies are welcome.

article in WSJ makes me want to support more bitcoin docs
The latest article in the WSJ is basically about a journalist who doesn't understand bitcoin. This is my response to the article which I posted on Facebook: "The Wall Street Journal just wrote about me! The journalist says: "Ms Brockwell doesn't exactly walk around Wall Street with a sandwich board shaped like a bitcoin, but almost." Actually, when we filmed the upcoming music video he mentioned, that's exactly what I did!! Most journalists (like this one) are very closed-minded about bitcoin, but it's no surprise to me. All of the criticism I hear about bitcoin comes from the technologically uninformed, and all of the endorsements come from the experts who actually understand the technology. I'm hoping that bitcoin girl can bridge the gap between these people. We're not just dealing with digital money. The blockchain is a revolutionary technology, and as people learn more about it they will come to be as excited about this as the tech community. Super stoked to be in the wsj btw ;)" https://www.facebook.com/naomi.brockwell/posts/10152592783660645?notif_t=like The article is quite negative in some respects, but I enjoyed the read. It confirms my opinion that we need more education about bitcoin. There are some awesome docs coming out that are crowdfunding right now, and an organisation called the MPI has a project called the "Bitcoin Project", where they're actively seeking out filmmakers who are making documentaries about bitcoin so that they can provide support for these documentaries. You should tell the MPI about any projects you think they should know about and support, and you can also donate to the MPI as a tax-deduction with bitcoin: 1HA9xSQWdXrusDK6a4Enprsy2ZTgzgNycG (note: I actually work with them as part of my bitcoin girl project, and they've given support to other bitcoin filmmakers so as to increase awareness and understanding of cryptocurrency. They're actively seeking out professional filmmakers for this) WSJ article can be found here (or bypass the paywall by googling +Wall street Journal +bitcoin +Naomi Brockwell) http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB20001424052702304518104580019503752292726?mg=reno64-wsj&url=http%3A%2F%2Fonline.wsj.com%2Farticle%2FSB20001424052702304518104580019503752292726.html
While watching a recommended video that talks BTC w/ some neighbors...
So I am sitting in my neighbors apartment, chilling, avoiding the outside world. When all of a sudden, a Bitcoin doc. Showed up in their recommended. Neighor starts going off about Dread Pirate Roberts and trashing the old marketplace to me and his GF. Fair, some mistakes were made. Then he goes on to explain to his questioning GF about how all these "Druggies used stupid internet tokens made by nerds so they can get drugs delivered to their house." Im sitting there with my best poker face. Like, okay, sure. Silkroad was kinda a growing pain, but dont shit on my Bits bro. He goes on to ask what the value of a BTC is... Neighbor :"What are they worth anyway? Couple cents of something?" Me coy as ever: "Umm, well actually man, they are worth a little under $7,000 a piece now... But just a bit ago was over 11k." Neighbor: "Seriously? What kind of moron would buy a stupid Bitcoin for that much? Just buy stocks, they are so cheap right now!" Me pensive: "haha, well, I mean it has outperformed the entire market and is a safe haven more reliable than gold, so, there is that..." Neighbor: " Wait, you dont actually believe this crap do you?" Me: "Actually man, I do.." ~ @ this point in the show that was on, CryptoKid comes on, and the Winklevoss boys are mentioned ~ His jaw drops. I go on to explain to him, (a traditional market investor, owns a couple bluchip stocks and a traditional 401k) how the cost of investment capital is ACTUALLY calculated... "Yes, we take the market cap, and divide it by the circulating supply.... See, there are only EVER going to be 21 million." I explained the upcoming halving, the demand for a safe haven asset, and the prospectus of that awful annoying "BRRRRR ing" noise emminating from the federal reserve. This morning he texted me asking about the KYC on Coinbase. ( the only exchange available here) Success.
