Happy Birthday Bitcoin

“Money often costs too much.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Bitcoin is now a teenager. Happy 13th Birthday Bitcoin!!!

On 31 October, 2008 Bitcoin’s anonymous creator(s) Satoshi Nakamoto posted Bitcoin’s genesis foundational white paper titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”.

What is needed is an electronic payment system based on cryptographic proof instead of trust. (Bitcoin white paper)

Shortly thereafter on January 9, 2009 released the code and Block Number 0 — known as the genesis block.

The price of Bitcoin finally crossed the $1 one dollar threshold in February 2011. As of this writing, a single bitcoin is trading for $61,100. So do the math. And the cryptocurrency revolution of information, media, banking, finance, commerce, etc. has just begun.

So celebrate the birth of Bitcoin by getting a little cryptocurrency for yourself. To quote Satoshi Nakamoto — “It might make sense just to get some in case it catches on.”
