An Introductory Article By Rod Kirk
Not a day goes by without some news about Bitcoin. Although it has been around for about 8 years, it wasn't until recently that I took the time to really investigate it. This is definitely a currency our grandparents would not feel comfortable with. To be honest, I do not feel comfortable with it. The layers of technology required to implement it and put it to use are quite formidable. By biggest question was "Is Bitcoin really a sustainable money system?" I scoured the internet for inputs, tutorials, and point of views on the subject and found there's alot to drown in. I created an introductory presentation on Bitcoin which is available here. The jury is still out as far as I am concerned. Take a look at the various references at the end of the presentation and see if you can come to some conclusion about Bitcoin being a sustainable money system or not.
