    Hi, Martin's blogged on Bitcoins and cryptocurrencies. Have a read of it here:

    Bitcoin: Four things you need to know

    Back to unitedwestand's original post...


    Searching the main MSE site for "Bitcoin" returns 8 results, "Blockchain 1 result & Cryptocurrencies 1 & 3 of these results are for the same single article.

    Doing the same on the UK Governments website, Bitcoin 16 results, Blockchain 23 results & Cryptocurrencies 9 results.

    Whereas searching for the term "money" returns 184k results on MSE and only 18k on Gov.UK and "Cash" 181k results on MSE and 7k on

    This technology is undoubtedly the biggest financial revolution in the past decade and has the potential to empower & save the average person in every single element of what MSE covers.

    Does MSE intentionally avoid covering it's evolution or will there be plans to dedicate forums and webpages to it in the future?

    I'd really like to see that

    Does that include Microsoft, Virgin, Expedia, Paypal, Dell, Bloomberg, Tesla, T-mobile etc who all use it?

    Or maybe you could give a clue how it couldn't?

    Just because those companies use it doesn't mean it's any good.

    I'd stay clear of anything Bloomberg uses because it'll probably blow up like the Falcon 9.

    Personally I find the idea of a tamper-proof car maintenance document have more useful:
