A group devoted to Bitcoin, the foreign money of the Web. Bitcoin is a distributed, worldwide, decentralized digital cash. Bitcoins are issued and managed with none central authority in any way: there is no such thing as a authorities, firm, or financial institution answerable for Bitcoin. You may be serious about Bitcoin for those who like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer programs, or economics. A big share of Bitcoin fans are libertarians, although folks of all political philosophies are welcome.
