History of Bitcoin

The early years of Bitcoin were marked by an entrepreneurial spirit that spanned the globe. From developers in Europe who volunteered regularly to scale the blockchain, to people who built exchanges in the US and Tokyo, to Bitcoin believers who toured the globe educating people on this new revolutionary technology.

Most were Bitcoin idealists who believed in the technology behind the coin and dreamed of a day when a currency wouldn’t have to be backed by a nation.

Some believed in building a decentralized network whereby source code could be open and these networks would connect everyone and anyone willing to participate.

A few were apolitical and liked that Bitcoin could be transferred cheaply across the globe within minutes.
