A Brief History of Bitcoin

  1. One, a fixed supply, so no one controls it & it is therefore common to everyone,
  2. Two, a locked protocol, so no one can change it & it is therefore common to everyone,
  3. Three, infinite capacity, so limitations & restrictions cannot be manufactured & is therefore common to everyone,
  4. Four, economic competition, so the network is open to everyone & therefore common to all, &
  5. Five, a chain of digital signatures for common accountability, so blame cannot be reassigned, & everyone is individually, equally responsible for the data they upload to the network.
