Andreas M Antonopoulos, a well-known Bitcoin Advocate and the author of ‘Mastering Bitcoin’, spoke about Bitcoin and the Genesis block, during the ‘Internet of Money’ tour.
Andreas first spoke about the Bitcoin paper, published in the month of October 2008, which explained the mechanism of the system. The white paper was published under the pseudo name, Satoshi Nakamoto, whose identity remains unknown until today.
“So somebody out there on the internet came up with an idea of how to build a digital currency and they published the paper in October 2008. Now, they had also written a prototype software program that ran the Bitcoin software which they launched on 3rd January 2009.”
This was followed by the beginning of the Bitcoin network and Bitcoin currency. He exclaimed that this was also the introduction to the world of a new concept, the blockchain technology, the technology behind the Bitcoin technology, which is now mentioned on the television on the financial news channels on a daily basis.
