Bitcoin: The End of Money As We Know It

By David Johanssen

Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize winning economist, says that Bitcoin is the “devil’s spawn,” ratcheting up the rhetoric in his recent piece titled, “Bitcoin Is Evil.” Bitcoin is a new currency that was created in 2009 by an unknown person using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto. Transactions are made without banks! There is no transaction fee and no need to give your real name. You can also send currency to people in other countries without worrying about exchange rates or currency conversion fees. Unfortunately, Bitcoin has also become a haven for criminal transactions on the “Silk Road” and the “Dark Web.”

What is consciousness and what is really real? “These are the kinds of questions that everybody has asked at some point,” says Alessandro Fedrizzi, a physicist at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.
