I read a couple of threads here on bitcoin and was disappointed by some wazuans trashing the technology. From the comments, most of them do not understand what it is/how it works and dismiss it from a point of ignorance.

Bitcoin and bitcoin are distintively different.

I'm starting this thread to clear the air on bitcoin, Bitcoin and cryptocoins.

They have a future and can advance financial access and financial markets. I say this from a FinTech background. I've been in both tech & finance and fully understand how it could better the financial system.

Mexico is already talking about using the blockchain technology for their peso http://goo.gl/pRkH2o

Doubters, shoot you're questions

Just one example of merging bitocin and asset metals. Combine the strengths of gold as a store of value and that of gold as a medium of exchange

Bitcoin is a very sophisticated global distributed asset register.

It's possible to imagine 1BTC representing 100 shares of twitter and whoever holds the coin on the day of dividends is entitled to the return.

Next generation of central securities depositories or custodian banks

I am interested in the use of alternative currencies especially considering the spread of internet use, and change in political order.

So I'd like to know, what are these points of ignorance that have been displayed by Wazuans?

$150 million dollars transferred via the Bitcoin network for $0.00 in fees. That's the ebauty of Bitcoin. Moving large values of assets for absolutely none or extremely low friction!
