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. 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.
The experience of discovering how Bitcoin is changing the world is both inspiring and exciting.

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
