    Relating Btcoin to the first movers on the internet and in mobile technology.... is it a positive?

    Well let me tell you, we ALL used Alta Vista search engine and a bunch others before the tiny little startup called Google came along which was much easier to use and gave better results.

    We loved to meet our old school-friends online using Friendster and MySpace... no Facebook back then.

    And the first mobile phone? Made by Motorola. Still around but they got smashed by Nokia, the king of mobile phones in the 1990s! Where is Nokia now? Destroyed by the iPhone which is now threatened by copycats like Android phones, Samsung...

    Being first doesn't always mean you will be last.

    Some of you may want to look at ethereum.org or counterparty.io - this would be examples of companies creating the digital tech to the real world.

    When he discusses value created due to btc being a finite resource like R.E. and having a spot on the ledger is valuable - what's finite.The bitcoin goes to 8 decimal places and no limit to ledger.

    Who is verifying the information and how is a consensus formed when "attaching" certain items to a bitcoin. Who actually verifies its authenticity and how? How would I verify that the title is legit?

    pretty good basic picture of BTC .and its fundamentals.... Ease of use and security still hurdles to propel its mainstream acceptance

    JOHN, that is just one use of bitcoins. It is also an asset because it still has scarcity and demand. Also, the bitcoin amount will be higher reflecting the price/fee to have 3rd party service it.

    Outcome is still binary. Sizing= your willingness to lose 100% Q: if BTC can be utilized in such small increments, must the value of 1 BTC necessarily go much, much higher? I'm not really sure.

    How do I attached my homeownership title to Bitcoin. How do I protect it from loss? How do I go from bitcoin ownership to physical ownership of gold. You need the physical gold network in place

    Beginning to understand the jargon and potential of bitcoin, or is it Bitcoin. (FYI - this spellcheck doesn't recognize "bitcoin"). I'm intrigued; would like to see more presentations like Chad's.

    Good presentation, taking rather difficult aspects of bitcoin and making them understandable for the people who for example don't have a tech background.

    This is by far the best explanation I have heard (or seen) on how the bitcoin network works and the future uses (opportunities) of its protocol.

    Exciting potential but still view it as an option. Unclear how to size a position in Bitcoin at this time. Thoughts?

    I'll be happy when I understand how the blockchain can ensure physical existence of the 'gold' it says I just bought..

    A useful presentation, but creating a real world connection is very murky.
