I’ll start right at the beginning. Bitcoin was born out of the desires of a libertarian that wanted to see change in the global finance system. A change that was not governed, or centrally controlled. A change that could break down the walls of banking systems, and artificially controlled monetary systems.
Earlier today, the world's first and most popular crypto-currency Bitcoin, broke another milestone barrier. Its market cap has surpassed $20 billion US dollars. That's no small feat, given that it has almost quadrippled in value in a year.
