What is Bitcoin?

People will ask, “What is Bitcoin?”.

The answer depends on who you are.

If you are an anarcho-capitalist, maybe you see Bitcoin as a step to overthrowing the government.

If you are an economist, you see Bitcoin as a hedge against the cabal of banks who ruthlessly print money, backed by the promises of the government.

If you are a developer, Bitcoin is the greatest open-source project of our times.

If you are a game theorist, you see Bitcoin as a novel attempt to solving the Byzantine General’s Problem.

Anything I understand, I only understand as an extension of myself.
