is not simple to understand.
Even when you think you get it, you probably don’t.
I’ve spent countless of hours during the last 5 years listening to podcasts, reading articles, running a full node, tinkering with software, software wallets as well as hardware wallets. Reading books on the subject. Thinking. Tinkering some more. Trying out services in the space. Observing Bitcoin-Twitter and the different players. Watching YouTube-videos. I’m still learning new things about the project, every single day. It’s humbling.
The protocol is developing and people are discovering new ways to utilize current features. And then I haven’t even started talking about the Lightning Network, which is incredible in and by itself.
The experience of discovering how Bitcoin is changing the world is both inspiring and exciting.

TL;DR
Bitcoin is a fundamentally important project with an incredible depth to it and you are most certainly dismissing it on the wrong reasons.

“Digitally, I am too much. And I’m dieting. Sometimes I get the munchies and install something in an intellectual fit of gluttony – an app, an Amazing New Tool That Will Change My Life, a videogame, etc. – but I almost always end up deleting it. I try to be a little less every day, and the best way I’ve found to do that is to play a game called Die World Die. I pull out my phone, switch on Pomodroido and for 25 / 35 / 45 minutes, I pretend the Internet doesn’t exist. When I finish, I need the Internet a little less and I need actual contact with people a little more.

When I fail to do this with the important things, I end up feeling weary and jaded. But when I do this with the important things, I love the Internet again and I’m filled with optimism.

I love the Web. But I aspire to needing it much less, and thereby making better use of it.” – Mike Sowden
