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 by any means: there is no such thing as a authorities, firm, or financial institution answerable for Bitcoin. You may be involved in Bitcoin for those who like cryptography, distributed peer-to-peer techniques, or economics. A big share of Bitcoin fans are libertarians, although folks of all political philosophies are welcome.
